It was a sort of wan smile the kind Jeffries has been smiling since he left SC State to take over the depleted program at Wichita State before last season "We want to get so we'll be competitive with the better teams on our schedule — Alabama Tennessee and South Carolina" he said "Our foundation is good but I'll tell you right now most of the players we depend on are sophomores And we're not there yet" Hardly In fact where the Shockers were after 60 minutes of football was buried under a rather shocking 73-0 score 'It was shocking because no one exp'etted South Carolina to so easily defeat a team that had opened last week with a 31-14 victory over Southern Illinois Not that Southern Illinois is any great power But to lay a 73-0 lump on a team that has defeated any other major college team by 31-14 is a surprise especially to long-suffering Gamecock fans Further most of this was accomplished without the aid of Heisman Trothy candidate George Rogers the Gamecocks' tailback Oh Rogers played And contributed But after punishing defenders 10 times for 108 yards and two touchdowns in the first half he and other first unit players turned over a 31-0 lead to reserves and retired for the evening They all whooped and cheered as their understudies — and their understudies' understudies — gleefully poured it on their out- manned foe Of course The marching band knew it would end that way With their heros leading 14-0 early in the second quarter the band members began singing "Another Inside Today George Brett sat out his seventh straight game but there were other heroes in baseball Saturday — like Pittsburgh's Don Robinson and New York Yankees' Tommy John Page 20 Cale Yarborough set a NASCAR record by capturing his 12th pole this season — the pole for today's race at Dover Del Page 4D College Football Maryland's specialty teams turned in a very special victory Over Vanderbilt Page 60 Appalachian State pulled out a 17-14 victory over The Citadel Page 7D Davidson's Wildcats mauled Springfield with the offense rolling up 42 points Page 7D Top-ranked Ohio State got a scare from Syracuse in the early going but by the end of the game the Buckeyes were in control Page 8D "We played Kelvin a little more in the second half because of the heat" said UNC coach Dick Crum "In fact we almost started him because we felt they were really geared up for Amos" Lawrence was pretty well contained after breaking loose for 29 yards on his first carry He had 77 yards at the half but added only 9 more in five carries in the second half Bryant finished with 61 yards in 17 carries and added 70 yards on three pass receptions "Bryant didn't surprise us" said Red Raider coach Rex Dockery "We knew he was a good ball One Bites The Dust!" Even on artificial turf Mr Rogers and his neighborhood friends made that sound appropriate Rogers's style is power and fury and a quite special sort of explosiveness upon contact It's like — at the moment most runners brace themselves to be hit — Rogers unleashes a surge that simultaneously surprises and jolts defenders In such a manner Saturday night he simply battered the See GAMECOCKS Pg 7D Col I A Flash: Soccer By DAVID SCOTT Observer Staff Writer Flash on this just like Mike Finegan did and meet the Carolina Lightnin' That's the name of Charlotte's new American Soccer League franchise And Mike 16 of Hickory chose it and 14 wins The Ob- nerv 1 server's it"-71 "Name The Akk Team Con- '''1f 1?::: 4 -
