Cyrus Resident Engineer Cowl FAYETTEVILLE. Ark. — The aispension of three University of Arkansas Razortacka apparently was the result of an incident in the athletic dormitory involving a woman student the Northwest Arkansas Times reported today. Arkansas football coach Lou HoIU said Wednesday that running backs Ben Cowina and Micheal Forrest and wide receiver Donny Bobo had been suspended from the team, and would not play in the Orange Bowl Jan. 2. Tom Posey, investigative supervisor for the Department of Public Safety at the university, told the newspaper he investigated the incident at the university dormitory about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. " I investigated it, and the woman didn't want to press charges. The case is closed because she requested that I not talk to the suspects," Posey said. Prosecuting Attorney Mahlon Gibson said no charges or complaint have been filed in connection with the incident. "A Fayettevllle attorney fi Hope Star Page Kight Thursday, December 22. 1977 called me Tuesday night and said there was an incident I might be hearing about. "He said he dJdn't want to discuss it, but would I call him if the woman intended to file charges, presumably so that the suspecta would have an oopportunity to turn themselves in," Gibson said. "I understand DPS made an investigation and said it was a school matter," Gibson said. Asked about the reports of the incident, Holtz said, "I really have nothing to say." About the suspensions, he said, "I feel it's just one of the hardest things I've ever had to do." With loss of the three, plus Tuesday's injury of All-American guard Leotis Harris, the Razorbacks' Orange Bowl chances against Oklahoma took a severe plunge. Harris tore knee ligaments during a practice scrimmage sidelining him for the Orange Bowl. The three suspended players accounted for 21 of Arkansas' 43 touchdowns during the 10-1 regular season. Cowins scored 14 touchdowns, Bobo five and Forrest two. Cowins and Bob were on the starting team. Forrest played regularly but was not a starter. It took only a few minutes for the oddsmakers in Las Vegas to learn of the suspensions, which prompted them to give Oklahoma a further edge in the Orange Bowl. The point spread jumped to 17 from the previous 10 or 11 points. I>ater reports indicated the game had been pulled from the tote boards there. Meanwhile, Oklahoma defensive coordinator Larry Lacewell said the suspension of the players may not hurt Arkansas as much as people think. "I remember before the Michigan game (1976 Orange Bowl) we disciplined Horace Ivory, our first-team fullback, and he didn't play in the game. But we put in Jim Culbreath and he had a great game and we won. There's no telling how this will really affect them. It could work out as a plus." Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer was on a recruiting trip and unavailable for comment. Holtz was interviewed by television stations as he ate dinner in Uttle Rock Wednesd- say night. He had little to offer about the suspensions. "They will not participate in the bowl," he said. "Without going into extenuating and mitigating circumstances, it would be unfair to the players" to talk about this. "We still plan on winning the Orange Bowl," he continued. "Oklahoma is a very ^cmi. dable opponent. Of course we will have to change some things." One local station reported that Athletic Director Frank Broyles confirmed he had been contacted by unknown persona about overturning the suspension. Broyles' only comment in the matter was that "The university will give the players due process" in any actions. Cowins, Bobo and Forrest could not be reached for comment. Teammate 0 said they had packed and left the athletic dormitory before Hoitz revealed the suspension at a squad meeting Wednesday morning. Cowboys should tell different story with running game DAL1.AS <AP) - -In the 1976 Hums who eventually bailed a Hams "Wi> h»ri „ nnn —!..__. "-rv,;n,ic or* Hiffprpnt this .. . . ^—' ^-^ DALl-AS (AP) In the 1976 first round National Conference playoff game against Ix)s Angeles, Dallas Cowboy Coach Tom 1-andry was making some short yardage calls that bordered on science fiction for the relatively conservative dean of Uie National Football lx?ague. The Cowboys were passing, passing, pussing. And failing, failing, falling against the K.nrns who eventually bagged a H-12 victory. The post-mortem was simple: Hit- C.Viwboys' injury-riddled offense didn't possess n healthy running brick. "It was ii strange feeling be- cfltiM' the K;irns knew wt> hiid to pass," recalls Cowboy (juar- U-rbiirk Hoger SUiubach, who threw the bull :t7 tune:; and compk'twl three of them to the Hams. "We had a non-existent running game." Preston Pearson was coming off a knee injury and toy-fullback Robert Newhouse was hobbled with a hamstring. Pearson got only 43 yards and Nfwhou.se 25. To top things off, Slnubach had a hand injury, ;md offensive linemen Ralph Ncely and Rayfield Wright were injured. "Things are different this year," says Staubach. "I feel good and we've got T.D." In case the Chicago Bears haven't been following the National Conference Eastern Division, "T.D." stands for Tony Dorsett, the rookie from Pittsburgh with the incredible afterburner. Dorsett is only the second Cowboy to gain 1,000 yards in a season. Calvin Hill pulled the trick—twice—before he defected to ihe Washington Redskins via the now defunct World Football League. "We've got Preston and the 'House health yn too, "says Staubach. "Nobody can load up on our passing game again." Staubach, who finished as the No. 2 rated quarterback in the NFL, completed 29 of his last 39 passes in the last two games as San Francisco and Denver concentrated on the potent Cowboy running attack. Dorsett, collegiate football's all-time leading ground-gainer, only started Dallas' last five games but scored 13 touchdowns. His 1,007 yards on 208 carries also earned him another distinction: Dorsett did something O.J. Simpson, Jim Brown, Gale Sayers and Walter Payton never accomplished, rushing for 1,000 yards in their rookie year. The last rookie to turn the trick was Don Woods of San Diego who fled for 1,162 yards in 1974. A healthy Newhouse rushed for 711 yards and Pearson, who set a club record by catching 40 passes out of the halfback slot, added 502 yards. Indiana playing giant-killer; beat 'Bama ' . _ 'ii -^ •' • By KEN RAPPOPORT AP Sporta Writer Indiana's onetime college basketball giants are playing the role of giant-killers these days. The newest victim of Uie Hoosiers is Alabama. "I'm really proud of this Learn," said Coach Bobby Knight after Wednesday night's 6W7 victory' over the Crimson Tide. Knight should be. Although no one thought it likely, the victory 1 was Indiana's second in a week over a Top Twenty team. Before beating the ISth-ranked Alabamans, the Hooslcra had pulled off a 67-66 upset of Notre Dame, ranked No. 2 at the time. That type of action wasn't really expected of Indiana be- cause Knight has IK en rebuilding since his national championship tejun of two years ago. "Wayne Hadford played probably his greatest game at In- dimo tonight," said Knight after watching Ihe Hooslers' inspirational lender score 24 points. Indiana's victory- wasn't Uie onlysurpri.se Wednesday night. The University of Detroit, the nation's No. 15 team, was stunned at home 103-74 by Michigan State. Elsewhere, No. 9 Nevada-Las Vegas escaped with an 84-83 victory over Iowa in the second annual Rebel Roundup tournament; Uie 12th-ranked Cincinnati Bearcats walloped Austin Peay 81-67 and No. 20 Maryland whipped Army 99-77. Radford scored five points during a nine-point streak t.iat broke a 40-40 tie and put the Hoosiers on top for good.

Minor Major 2:30 3:10 3:55 4:40 8:55 9:40 10:25 11:05 Hall of Fame game tonight BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) If Minnesota's Golden Gophers adapt to Maryland's football team as quickly as they did to grits, the Terrapins will have their hands full in the first Hall of Fame Classic tonight. "When they came in Sunday, they didn't know about grits," said Mrs. MatUe Lavender, who serves meals at the team hotel. "1 told them. They came back three or four times. They must have eaten four gallons." Nevertheless, Coach Jerry Cl&bome's Terrapins are a one touchdown favorite over the grit-fed Gophers in the 8 p.m. EST game. Both teams carry 7-4 records into the game, which marks Maryland's fifth straight postseason bowl but the first for Minnesota since 1962. "That's something Maryland has going for it," Coach Cal Stoll of Minnesota said. "For many of their players, it will be the third or fourth post-season gone. But I think we have enough leadership on this team thai they'll know how to handle it." One of the leaders, All-Big Ten defensive tackle Steve Midboe, is hoping an ankle injury won't hamper him. The ankle has been heavily taped during workouts. Minnesota holds victories over both Rose Bowl teams, Washington find Michigan, but lost to weaker teams such as Iowa. Plagued by injuries, Maryland dropped three of its first four games before finishing with a rush. Quarterback Larry Dick replaced injured Mark Manges in the fifth game and passed for 1,351 yards. Manges now has recovered but Claiborne plans to start Dick. Runners George Scott got 894 yards and Steve Atkins 598 for Maryland, but Atkins is injured and won't play. Minnesota has a workhorse runner in fullback Kent Kit- zniann. After shaking off injuries he picked up 647 yards, including 266 against Illinois on a record 57 carries, Paul Rogind's field goals provided the difference in four Minnesota games. He set a Big Ten record with 18. including one for 47 yards. Net prufils from the game will gu to the National Football Foundation and Hal! of Fame, Inc.
