4 ' ' 28 THE KANSAS CITY TIMES H"v- it 1m 1 ft Out To Billy Cannon Thunk! The football is only a blur as Jack Bastabl follows through on his kick in fiald-goal practice at Missouri Holding the ball is Mike Farmer Gathered in the background are members of Marching Mizzou the university band who made a noisy and unscheduled appearance at a Tiger workout this week in an effort to pep things up for the Notre Dame game (Star photo by John Vawter) Irish MU Draw Fans By Dick Wade Associate Snorts Editor of Tha Star Columbia Mo— They’ll fill every nook and cranny of Memorial stadium this afternoon those 64 000-plus patrons of football who will gather to watch Missouri and Notre Dame go at it But that gathering which will be the largest ever to watch a sporting event in the state will be only a small portion of those looking on the game will be the national television offering Because of the TV commitment the game will go on at 2:50 o’clock Because it is mid-October the shadows will be long indeed when it comes to a close But at least every beam of available light will come in unhindered the weather bureau promises a clear crisp day Notre Dame the nation’s third-ranked club will be a 2-touchdown favorite If football weren’t a contact sport and if Nebraska didn’t play so fiercely it might figure to be closer But the wear and tear on the Tigers has stripped them of several standout players — including tailback Joe Moore tackle Rocky Wallace and linebackers Sam Britts and Roger Yanko all of whom were laid low in last week’s game with the Huskers Coach Dan Devine says “I’m particularly disappointed to play Notre Dame with a patched-up line-up” But he adds “Don’t count us out of this one We still have people who can play” Missouri’s prime problem this afternoon will be handling the double-barreled (run and pass) ability of Joe Theisman the Notre Dame quarterback who already has been the national back of the week this season Theisman has averaged 240 yards a game in the total-offense department this season fifth best in the nation The Tigers’ No 1 question hinges on how well Bill Mauser has adapted to the tailback duties left vacant by Moore If M U can generate an offensive threat this game could be close indeed But whether M U is on offense or defense the question in the mind of Devine and his staff is a basic one: Can M U physically hang in there with the Irish Devine puts it this way: “There’s only one way to play Notre Dame-stand up to them You can’t be intimidated” By Bill Richardson A Member of The Star' Sport Staff Let it be said the Chiefs are not going to be caught short of Heisman trophy winners They’ll keep their roster at two by activating Billy Cannon for tomorrow’s football game in Cincinnati Coach Hank Stram confirmed yesterday that Cannon who won the trophy as a standout running back at L S U will be activated this weekend for tight end duty Cannon will replace Mike Garrett Heisman trophy winner from Southern California who was traded to San Diego Thursday The other Heisman winner on the squad is John Huarte quarterback from Notre Dame Stram also revealed that Warren McVea will take Garrett’s place as a running back in the starting line-up and that Richard Armstrong rookie running back has been recalled for taxi duty Armstrong had been working in Kansas City since his release by the Chiefs and was readily available Cannon’s activation continues a pro career that began in Houston in 1960 the American Football league’s first year of operation Only other Chiefs around from that inaugural season are Johnny Robinson free safety who like Cannon KU Braces for Facts of Life By Fritz Kreisler jh Member of The Star' Sports Staff Lawrence Kas— Kansas’s football comeback undergoes its mast demanding test of the season today when the Jayhawks take on the Nebraska Cornhusk-ers in Memorial stadium The kickoff is scheduled for 1:30 o’clock The lead of the Big Eight conference will be at stake Both teams have 1-0 records routine enough at this stage of the young conference season but teams except one have already lost today’s game gives one the opportunity to take a firm grip on the lead The only other team that hasn’t lost is Oklahoma and the Sooner s open their conference season today at Colorado The mere suggestion that Kansas is in a position to be playing for sole occupancy of first place is an upset of sorts The Jayhawks finished eighth last year and weren’t consid ered much higher in pre-season thinking this time around How- when you consider that all other ever they have shown steady improvement from a stuttering start and have won three straight to show a 4-1 log They opened league play last week with a 21-15 upset of Kansas State Whether the Jayhawks have come back far enough to have genuine hopes against a team of Nebraska’s stature remains to be seen The Huskers defending co-champions were considered a title threat in all pre-season polls and have done nothing to discourage that thinking They have a 4-0-1 record and are ranked fifth in the country by Kansas State Regroups For Invasion of 1-State By Del Black A Member of The Star's Sport Staff Ames la— Kansas State jolted by probation and a loss to Kansas attempts today to pull itself up by the bootstraps and salvage something from the 1970 football season Iowa State always tough on its home field will be the opposition in a 1:30 o’clock kick-off A drowd of 35000 is expected to watch the Big Eight conference clash K-State must win this outing if it is to remain in the title chase The Wildcats among the pre-season list of contenders are 1-1 in league play A triumph today would put them back in the race with remaining contests against Oklahoma Missouri Oklahoma State and Nebraska Iowa State was knocked from the unbeaten ranks 61-10 last week by Colorado which a week earlier lost to K-State 21- 20 “We’re catching a team twice in a row that lost the previous week” moaned Johnny Majors Iowa State coach on the eve of 1-State to Start Carlson at Quarter Ames la (AP)-Dean Carlson a 6-3 215-pound junior college transfer will again be the starting quarterback when Iowa State hosts Kansas State today in a Parents day game in Arnes Carlson drew his first starting assignment at Colorado last week and continued to share time with sophomore George Amundson “We will continue to utilize our two quarterbacks to the best advantage” Coach Johnny Majors said yesterday “Carlson will probably start” The Cyclones worked for just over an hour in sweat clothes yesterday giving heavy emphasis to the kicking game and a review of game plans for the Wildcats the game “That’s not good” Coach Vince Gibson says his K-State team is not physically tip-top for the Cyclones but is mentally better prepared than it was for Kansas Linebacker Jim Dukelow will not play and flanker Sonny Yarnell is very doubtful Linebacker Oscar Gibson is also hobbled but is expected to see action The Cyclones carry a 30-20 series edge into the game Three games have ended in ties K-State a 34-7 victor last year in Manhattan Kas has not won in Ames since 1963 — a 21-10 success the Associated Press Their mar jor accomplishments thus far are a 21-all tie with Southern Cal and a 21-7 victory over Missouri They have two able quarterbacks in Jerry Tagge and Van Brownson outstanding running backs in Joe Orduna Jeff Kinney and Johnny Rodgers and an awesome defense led by linebacker Jerry Murtaugh tackle Dave Walline and middle guard Ed Periard Against that outfit the Jayhawks will send an explosive offense that features the running of John Riggins and Steve Conley and the passing of Dan Heck and an elastic defense that somehow has held things intact Clear and bracing autumn weather is forecast and a nearcapacity crowd is expected John Novotny K U’s assistant athletic director said yesterday the advance sale indicated the crowd would top 50000 including nearly 9000 Nebraskans If so it would be the Jayhawks’ first 50000-plus crowd at home in two years The listed capacity of
