AGGIE LINE IMPOSING Wednesday, November 24,197t, 'ttffffttffftttttttttittitttttii Page 6 Nixon becomes Redskin coach for a day AUSTIN (AP) — The big tough Texas AAM offensive line will try to assert their muscle Thursday against a Texas Longhorn front four which Is lighter, younger—and maybe quicker. Excluding split receiver Itoberl Murski, who's not so small at 188 pounds, the Aggie front six averages 333 pounds. Some think It's the best In the Southwest Conference, Two former all-sttitc schoolboy ends. Busier Callawny and Ralph Sacra, Horns face muscle problem arc the tackles.

Th« guards arc Leonard Korcy, 6-3 and 228, and Todd Christopher, ft-2 and aa, both the same weight as center Skip Kuehn, 8-0, a transfer from Hanger Junior College. The tight end is Homer May, 6-2 and 332, acclaimed by Aggie coach Gene Stalling* as a team leader. "He Just has that knack of getting folks to follow him. Wherever you sec WASHINGTON (APt Richard Nixon, who confesses he couldn't make the "C" Squad as a lid-pound schoolboy, has used the power of the presidency to achieve a football fans' dream: calling signals for a professional (cam. Nixon put aside the problems of slate briefly on a chilly winter . afternoon. Tuesday to appear, unan- • nounccd and uninvited, .it the Washington Redskins' practice field in the 'Virginia countryside 30 miles from the White'House, He posed for pictures with the players, gave them a rah- rah pep talk—"Spirit makes a great -difference in whether you win or lose"—and predicted the Redskins, now 03-1 and trailing Dallas in the National Football Conference Eastern Division by a half- game, will get into Die playoffs. Then, on orders of Coach George Allen, quarterback Billy KitmtT railed the d- tcrisjve unit into a huddle. "Any &|iccu)l play'"-Kilmer ihoiiletl in Niiun "A completion." N'ixun nspumlcd. (lie I'ltsident strolled toward the huddle and, with animation, offered Kilmer more specific guidance. It was a screen pass to running back Charley Harraway, who drifted to the right and, behind a wall of blockcrs. romped 10 yards through a crowd of newsmen to (he end zone. "We'll use that screen pass," Allen told an applauding Nixon. Then it was the defensive unit's turn, Unaided by presidential signal-calling, the unit lined up and charged past Nixon with whoops and shouts. With Allen listening, Nixon analyzed the rest of the 'Skins' schedule—this Sunday at Philadelphia, then games with the New York Giants, the Los'Angeles Rams and the Cleveland Browns. "I'm going to go out on the limb and predict—I'm pretty Rood in the field of sports— that this team is going to get into the playoffs," Nixon said. "Out of these next four, you're going to win three, if not all four." He seemed most worried about the Los Angeles game: "That'll be a tough one." "They're all lough." replied Allen. Baylor looks for coach WACO (API - BUI Beall will be replaced as head coach at Baylor following Saturday's game with Rice but no decision has been made on his successor. The Associated JYess has learned, Beall, who came Ip Baylor in 1968 from an assistant's Job at Louisiana State, is on the third year of a five-year contract. However, the contract is subject to review after three years. Baylor Athletic Director Jack Patterson said, "someone is guessing or speculating" on any possibility that Iowa Slate Coach Johnny Majors will take over the helm for the Bears. "We have not hired a football coach." Patterson said. " We expect to release a statement concerning the situation Sunday afternoon or Monday at the latest." Baylor is compiling information on prospective roaches across the country. The AP has learned. "We hnvvn'l approached any coach yet U-cau^- if* too early but wv arc getting information on them." said on*? Baylor source. Iowa State Coach Johnny Majors said Tunday. •There'* not a single word of truth to the story that I have signed at Baylor. It's a complete. IrrvspaRtible rumor. For omr thing. I would never 0<> any kind of contract discussion Mutv a s*ras«io is over " Iowa State plays San Jose State Saturday night ami aha plays UJULSUITUI State in the Sun Bowl. Beall cumpilcd a 3-71 record at Bay tor going into the Rice contest at Houston. Oklahoma-Nebraska Offense or defense? NORMAN, Okb tAPl Can the tuition's No, 1 foot la 11 ili'fi-iisv Mop the Nu I offense? This appeared to U- tin; big question today as Nebraska and Oklahoma wound up preparations for Thursday's nationally televisttl game of the year. Tlie kickolf is set (or 2:50 p.m. CST. Nebraska has jii'lded only 171 yards a game. Oklahoma's blistering wishbotit- offense has averaged 563 yards, a game. To the question, quarterback Jack Mildrcn, the (rigger man in Oklahoma's offense, flatly said, "No" Sooner halfback Greg Pruitt. who has averaged 9.5 yards a play, said, "We'll win." Both are impressed with the Black Shirts, Nebraska's defensive unit, but insisted Oklahoma can move the ball FRESH BAR-BQ DAILY 3 BROTHERS N0.5 729 W. BROAD against the Cornhuskers. "They're tatter on defense than any team we've played," saiil Mildren. generally regarded as the best triple option quarterback in the country. ''However, we don't think anybody can stop us." Pruitt, whose rocket run- in UK lias netted 1,423 yards, said bluntly: "I am confident we will beat them because i have confidence in our team and myself. 1 think we proved we played our best under pressure. . .back there when we beat Southern California, Texas ami Colorado in a row. I don't think Nebraska has played a pressure game this year." Coach Chuck Fairbanks of Oklahoma, 90, doesn't go along with the theory that Nebraska, unbeaten in 29 straight games and 100 this season, is better on defense than on offense. "Nebraska is as fine a college football team as I've ever seen," Fairbanks said. "They are a complete football team. They do so well in all phases of the game. "Nebraska is not the type of Sears I If Your Battery ias Seen It's Third Winter, Mils Are It Won't See Another team that beats itself. To win. w v have to play better titan we have all year long. We have to play a complete game. We're riot going to win it on offense or• on defense alone." >V' •. Fairbanks said he doesn't think Nebraska Coach Dob llcvancy will make major adjustments on defense. "Of course." Fairbanks said, " there will be adjustments. Nebraska probably will make some adjustment in IlK-ir secondary for us. I don't expect any big change. They have the nation's best defense as it is." Larry Lacewell. the Sooncrs' defensive coach, admitted Oklahoma doesn't have the depth on defense some other teams have. "Depth in our defense has been a problem all season," he said, then sighed and added: "The only good thing that has happened to me this year is I didn't have to defense the Oklahoma offense." Uevaney has said that the theory the Souners are strictly offense-oriented and do not have a good defense is a lot of hogwash. "Oklahoma's defense is vastly underrated," Devaney said. "You've just heard more about their offense." Fairbanks sidestepped a question about the game's outcome.

Landry puzzled about Staubach DALLAS (API - Tom Landry admitted Tuesday he can't predict what Roger Staubach is going to do next. Staubach, the former lleisnian Trophy winner from Navy who is a perplexing but also pleasing problem for Landry with his scrambling runs, has paced the Dallas Cowboys to three consecutive victories since being installed as the No. 1 quarterback. "I can't predict. . .1 don't know what he'll do but I'll say this. . .his scrambles sure bothers a defensive line. . .they have to keep in their lanes," Landry said. Staubach scrambled 29 yards on a key touchdown run Sunday in a 13-0 vie too' °vcr Washington that propelled the Cowboys into the Eastern Division lead of the National Conference. Landry said he complimented Staubach on hi* run against the Redskins. "What was I going to do after that. . .my 'Don't scramble?" Landry said.
