(AP) — The University of Illinois' footbal team, in the words of coach Pete Elliott, "is back in the Big Ten' this season. "Based on our progress at the end of the 1962 season, I feel we have a fairly decent, solid team, 1 said handsome Pete, whose 1961 club hit an all-time lllini low with a winless 0-9 mark.

However, this "skywriting iup" — zooming around the Ten by plane — has had a remarkably inaccurate prediction record in its 10-year history. It could be hoisted with its prognosticating petard earlier than usual this fall.

Price for Caroline and Bates which fullback Mickey swept the lllini to a share of the 1953 title with Michigan State. Elliott said Price is "a strong boy, hard runner and outstanding prospect but he has a long way to go." Price will play of offense only and will yield in versatility to another fleet, but slight sophomore, 161-pound Dick Fee, who excels on defense. Backfield speed will be an lllini forte in an attack featuring a variety of wide flanker formations. Other swift ball-carriers include veteran Jim Warren (168), paired with Price in the No. 1 backfield, Big Ten track sprinter Trenton Jackson (163) and Mike Dundy (164). Veteran Mike Taliaferro, a good passer and fair runner, is backed at quarterback by two bright sophomore prospects, Fred Cus- ardo and Ron Acks, either of whom could dislodge Taliaferro. "We have a proven varsity ine," Elliott observed, "but there s a lot of inexperience in the next two units and if our No. 2 earn can't play really well, we're in trouble." The line is anchored by center and linebacker Dick Butkus, a J37-poimder who was brilliant as a sophomore. The all-letteniier orward line also includes Bill Pusko (205) and Rich Callahan 176) at ends; Archie Sutton (249) and Bill Minor (217) at tackles; and Dick Deller (207) and Lynn Stewart (212) at guards.
