AGGIE LINE IMPOSING Nixon becomes Redskin coach for a day AUSTIN (AP) -,th« big tough Texas A&M offensive line will try to assert their muscle Thursday against a Texas txmghorn front four which Is tighter, younger—nnd maybe quicker. Excluding split receiver Uobcrt Murskl, who's not so small at (88 pounds, the Aggte front six averages 333 pounds. Some think It's the best in the Southwest Conference. Two former all-slate schoolboy ends, Buster Cnllnwny and Ralph Sacra, Horns face muscle problem are the tackles. Sacra Is 8 feet 5 Inches and weighs 241 pounds, niiil Galloway Is (M and W The guards are Leonard Forey, M and 338, and Ttxld Christopher, 6-2 and 228, both the same weight as center Skip Kuclm, 6-0, a transfer from Ranger Junior College. The tight end Is Homer May, 6-1 and 233, acclaimed by Aggie conch Gene Stallings as a team leader, "He just has that knack of getting folks lo follow him. Wherever you sec a crowd, Homer will likely bo In the middle." "Sacra and Collaway are two talented tackles," said Texas coach Darrell Royal. "Forey and Christopher are two good guards," and he mentioned No. 51—Kuclm, "May has been a big, strong, solid receiver for them and a good blocker on the line of scrimmage." Forey Is a senior. The others are Juniors. Texas' front line of one senior and three sophomores WASHINGTON (AIM ~ Richard Nixon, who confesses 'he couldn't make the "C" squad as a 110 pound Schoolboy, has used the power of the presidency to achieve a football fans' dream: calling signals for a professional team. Nixon put aside the problems of slate briefly on a chilly winter afternoon Tuesday to appear, unannounced and uninvited,'at the Washington Redskins' practice field in the Virginia ' countryside 30 miles from the White House. He pa-sed for picture!; with the players, gave them a rah- rah pep talk—"Spirit makes a great difference in whether you win or lose"—and predicted the Kedskins, now G- 3-1 and trailing Dallas in the National Football Conference Eastern Division by a half- game, will get into the playoffs. Then, on orders of Coach George Allen, quarterback Billy Kilmer called the offensive unit into a huddle, "An> J.(x-cial play?" Kilmer shotilisl l» Nixon. "A coHipIeliun," Nixcm re? pottdvd 'fin-n (lie 1'tvsident strolled toward the huddle and, with animation, offered Kilmer more specific guidance. U was a screen pass to running back Charley Harraway, who drifted to the right and, behind a wall of blockers k romped 10 yards through a crowd of newsmen lo the end tone, "We'll use that screen pass," Allen told an ap- Nixon. Then U 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 Hams and the Cleveland Browns. "I'm going to go out on the limb and predict— I'm pretty good 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 bt> a lough une." "They're all tough," replied Alien. Baylor looks for coach WACO (API - BUI Benll 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 Press has learned. lie nil. who came to Baylor in 19(8 from an assistant's jab at IjDiitsiana State, is on the third year of a five-year con- Irncl. However, IheeontracI is subject lo rev lew after three years. Baylor Athletic Director Jock Patterson Mid, "someone is guessing or speculating" on any possibility that Iowa State Coach Johnny Majors will take over the helm for the Bears. "We have not hired a football coach." Patterson said. "We expect lo release a statement concerning the situation Sunday afternoon or Monday at the latest," Baylor is compiling information on prospective coaches across the country. The AP has learned. "We hiiwn't approached any cwtch yet because it's too early but w« are getting information on them." said one Baylor source. Iowa Stale Coach Johnny Majors said Tuesday, "There's not a single word of truth to the story that I have stgnvd at Baylor. It's a complete, irrrcponsible rumor, For one thing, I would never do ans kind of contract discussion twforc a season is over." Iowa State plays San Jose State Saturday night and also plays Uiuisinna State in the Sun Bowl. Beall compiled a 3-27 record at Baylor going into the Kiev contest at Houston, Oklahoma-Nebraska Offense or defense? NIWMAN. Can the nation's -Nu. 1 college football defense- Mop th« No. 1 offense? This appeared lo bt; the big question today as ('outranked-. Nebraska and smmd-ranked Oklahoma ' wound up preparations for Thursday's nationally televised gume of the year. The kickoU is set for 2:50 p.m, CST. Nebraska has yielded only 171 yards a game. Oklahoma's blistering wishbone offense has averaged 563 yards a game. To the question, quarterback Jack Mildrcn, the trigger 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 BARBQ DAILY 3 BROTHERS N0.5 729 W. 3ROAD ;>Caiiist the Curnhuskers. "They're better on defense than any team we've played," said Mildren, generally regarded as the best triple oj)tion quarterback in the country. ''However, we don't think anybody can stop us." Pruitt, whose rocket running has ncttnl 1.423 yards, said bluntly: "I am confident we will beat tlicm tn-cause I Iwye con- fidcnix- in our team and myself. 1 think we proved we played our best under pressure. . .back there when wi- )H*at Southern California, Texas and 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 10-0 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 leant. They do so well in all phases of the game. "Nebraska is not the type of Sears] If Your Battery as Seen It's Third Winter, Ids Are It Won't See Another team that beats itself. To win. » v have to play better than we have all year long. We have to play a complete game We're nol going to win it on offense 'or;on defense alone." 'A Fairbanks said be doesn't think Nebraska Coach Bob Devancy will make major adjustments on defense. "Of course." Fairbanks said, "there will be adjustments. Nebraska probably will make some adjustment in tltcir secondary for us. I don't expect any big change. They tave the nation's best Menu? as it is." Larry Lacewell, the Sooners' 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 Sooner* are strictly offense-oriented and do not have a good defense U a lot of hogwash. "Oklahoma's defense is vastly underrated," Devancy said. "You've just heard more about their offense." Fairbanks sidestepped a question about the game's outcome.

Landry puzzled about Staubach DALLAS (AP) - Tom Landry admitted Tuesday he can't predict what Roger Staubach is going to do next. Staubach, the former Hcisman Trophy winner from Navy who is a perplexing but also pleasing problem (or Landry with his scrambling runs, has paced the Dallas Cowboys to three consecutive victories since being installed as the No. t quarterback. "1 can't predict. . .1 don't know what he'll do but I'll say this. . .his ucramblea sure bothers a defensive line. . they have to ket-p in their lanes," Landry Mid. Staubach scrambled 29 yards on a key touchdown run Sunday in a 134 victory over Washington that propelled the Cowboys into the Eastern Division lead of the National Conference. Landry said he complimented Staubach on his run against the Kedskins "What was I going to do after that. . .nay 'Don't scramble?"

What can you say about a team who slacked up five straight victories, came back in its sixth game down by seventeen poinU at one time, to lose only by (wo point* in overtime to the defending Stale Champions S»-M? It wtll be interesting to ux what might happen next Tuciday night when these two teams, Victoria and Bratosport, meet head-on again in Victoria. There's liable to be an upset in the making. Brazosport got off to a slow start in llw first period scoring only seven point* to Victoria's 20. In that opening quarter, Theresa Si-idler put up one field goal and one free shot, while Janis Balusek and Toni Eudaley each added a field goal. From the beginning of the second quarter on into the later periods, things began to look up for the .Ship*. The second quarter meant 19 big points for Braxosport to Victoria's 10 with Eudaley in on most of the scoring for that period. She put up four field goals and eight free throws, with Seidkr adding one of each, and Balusek one field goal. This made the Scoreboard read Victoria 30- Brawsport 28 at the half. The Ship* came back (or U important points to Victoria's mere five in the third quarter. Seidler got it together (or (our field goals and two free shots, white Eudaley and Balusek each added a field goal to give the Ships « 40-35 edge going into the lioal quarter Kor the mtMl part the fourth quarter belonged la Victoria with 17 point* to HrauMport't 13 to even it all up arid force the deadlock into overtime In tlw fourth period italuaek put up three field goal* and a frit ahot, while Scidkr found one field and three free shot* The S2 i2 tic sent (he game into a three minute overtime period The only difference between the two field goal* each team put up was two free throw* made by Victoria To round out the scoring, it was Scidler with 23 points, while Kudaley came in a close second with 18, and Balusek in with IS points. Most of the credit for the game's effort would have lo go to the defense, as Linda Morgan. Terri Whittle, and Pam Huberts hung tough Hguiiut the constant shooting of Victoria. Morgan brought down a total of seven rebounds and four interceptions, with Whittle in for six rebounds and five interceptions. Roberts found one rebound and one interception. The Brazosport Junior varsity (ell short to Victoria by a 33-26 mark. The J.V. • game was one of defense, and the defensive stronghold for Brazosport should be attributed to Freida Stacks, who came down with five rebounds and two interceptions.
