Bruce's Worry: Defense By Dennis O'Grady (Sports Editor) Earle Bruce, Iowa State's second-year head football coach, was in Carroll Monday night speaking to the Carroll County Cyclone Club and he talked football and a lot of it. In reviewing last season, Bruce felt he learned a couple of lessons concerning the 12 men on the field at Arkansas and at home against Big Eight rival, Oklahoma State. In the Arkansas game at Fayetteville, a touchdown with 12 men on the field helped the Razorbacks immensely in a 21-19 win and a lineman standing all alone on the sidelines didn't help the Cowboys in a loss to ISU. But the entertaining Bruce said he learned one lesson from those two encounters and that was the fact "the officials have the final say." "I guess we're one and one on the field," added Bruce referring to those two weird plays. Speaking about last year's club, Bruce said, "one thing is for sure and that's the fact that those kids didn't give up. We lost 19 of them and we're going to miss guys like the Larry Hunts, the Ike Harris' and Keith Krepfle's. "Our problem this year is the defense. We have the offensive depth, but must replace key people in the line and at linebacker." "We're going to be a young football team next fall with a few veteran players mixed-in," said the Cyclone head man. In talking of his returning veterans, Bruce looked at several players, in particular, MikeStrachan. "Mike can be the second leading ground gainer in Big Eight History next fall with Times Herald, Carroll, la. Tuesday, May 21, 1974 just an average year." Bruce called Strachan, a "running back deluxe," for a guy who has rushed for over 2,400 yards in his career. The Iowa State coach also feels former Waterloo East prep star Jerry Moses can be of big help at flanker if he stays on the healthy side. And in fullback Phil Danowsky, Bruce feels he has his type of football player. "He is a great blocker and he's going to get better." In back Barry Hill and end Andre Roundtree, the ISU coach feels he has two outstanding defensive players. "Hill intercepted eight passes a year ago and could become the conference's all-time best in that category," said Bruce. "And Roundtree, well, he's just a big-time football player." Bruce also didn't forget Tom Goejden who does the place-kicking. "He had an operation last winter on his leg and he's kicking the ball beautifully right now. He's almost automatic. Some of the new players Bruce said to watch out for include linemen Bob Bos and Jeff Jones, offensive guard and offensive center respectively. In the offensive backfield, Bruce spoke highly of quarterback Buddy Hardemann. "He has to work on his throwing, but there's one thing he can do and that's what to do with the football." Bruce also spoke of back-up signal caller Wayne Stanley, Tom Mason and Bobby Martin as giving depth to the QB position. The ISU mentor also spoke about speedster Mike Tyson. "He can do it all. He's a good receiver and a good runner. And track star Clive Sands will help with all of his speed." As far as recruiting, Bruce talked highly of Harlan's Mike Larsen, Mason City's Tom Randall, Clinton's Ken Stracener and Lake Mills' MikeStenrud. "In our recruiting,'we went after the big guys who can play and in these boys we think we got some." In summing up his spring practice, Bruce said, "it was a good practice. We found we have the offensive depth, but must rebuild on defense." \ But if the Cyclone boss can come up with some defensive people, opposing teams better watch out for the Red and Gold.

By Dennis O'Grady (Sports Editor) In the Iowa State University delegation to Carroll Monday night besides head football coach Earle Bruce were athletic director Lou McCullough and assistant basketball coach Tom Smith. New Stadium According to McCullough, there are a lot of "ifs" concerning the opening of the new football stadium this fall. There's hope that the new complex, which will seat close to 50,000, will open in time for the first home game against Brigham Young in September, but loyal Cyclone fans shouldn't get too excited about that. "No one knows what our chances are for opening against Brigham Young," noted McCullough. "With the construction strike going on now and the weather, it is very improbable that we will open in September." "It looks more like now that we'll have to wait until .November 2nd when Oklahoma comes to town," said the ISU athletic boss. McCullough added that ISU will not move into the stadium for the sake of moving. "We have lockerrooms, toilet facilities, Scoreboard and other things which must be completed." Seating capacity in the new stadium will include 41,000 east-west stadium seats with an additional six thousand end zone seats. And McCullough added, "if we do move into the stadium in November, in some way we'll issue temporary seats for the Oklahoma and Nebraska games." CC Seats As far as where the Carroll County seats will be located in the new complex McCullough didn't know, but he assured that all Carroll County people will have nice seats. "We're going to give our long-time ticket holders first priority," said the Cyclone athletic boss. "After that, people who have given gifts will get the next best seats." McCullough finished up by saying, "everybody will have a better seat. And people will also like our new stadium because of an extra 7,000 parking spaces. At the old stadium (Clyde William Field), we only had room for 500 spaces. Cage Recruits According to Smith, this has been the best year for recruiting for an Iowa State coached Maury John team. The Cyclone veteran boss along with assistants Smith and Gus Guydon feel they have landed six outstanding boys. They are: Art Johnson — a 6-7 forward who played for San Jacinto Junior College last season. He comes from a school that produced former Drake stars — Jeff Halliburton and Leon Huff. He was named one of the top 25 juco players in the country and averaged 20 points and 12 rebounds last year. Tom Norman — His dad, Ron Sr., earned eight years in his days at Iowa State and his brother, Ron Jr., starred for the Iowa basketball team a few years ago. He's a 6-foot-2 inch guard who was considered one of the top three guards in Illinois last winter. He made Coach and Athlete All-American team while averaging 24 points a game for Freeport. Jerry Luckett — is a 6-foot-7 inch forward out of Milwaukee, Wis., Lincoln High School. He was an All-American and was picked the top player in the state last winter as his club finished second in the state meet at 24-2. He averaged 22 points and 14 rebounds. Chuck Fritz — is a 6-foot-2 inch guard from Hinsdale, 111., who was an all-stater and was selected to play in the Midwest All-American High School All-Star game at Dayton, Ohio. He averaged 18 points and nine assists. Jim Murphy — is a 6-foot-7 inch forward out of Treynor, Iowa, who was a fourth team all-state choice and led his team in scoring at 24 points and 14 rebounds. He was also captain of the All-Southwest fowateam. Lodel Burnett — is a 6-5 forward from San Jacinto Junior College in Texas, where he averaged 16 points and 14 rebounds. He is out of Proviso East. 111., high school and was named one of the top 25 junior college players in the nation. He is a good high jumper, also, having done 6-10.
