\I, LuCLI » llil-l \ I J/ I / WO Sop/?s Moc/e 7/»em Run Koiwy //// JIO/S Rose Bowl Team Well Equipped To Stay In Front BY HARRY GRAYSON Newspaper Enterprise Sports Editor CHICAGO - Illinois made the highest jump among major college football squads the past season. The Ulini leaped from eighth place to the championship of the Big Ten. They last only one f ame, that to Pete Elliott's rother Bump, and Michigan. Picking a team to repeal in the Western Conference is risky business, but Illinois has the horses to stay on top for a while. Coach Elliott will deploy what is basically a junior outfit against Washington in the Pasadena Rose Bowl on Jan. ]. Making Illinois' immediate future even brighter is the fact that a half dozen sophomores contributed generously toward giving Champaign its first Big Ten title in 10 years. And the third consecutive outstanding freshman class hardly will retard Elliott and his aides the next time around. In place of being almost totally disregarded in the national ranking as it was at the start of the season just closed. Illinois is quite likely to be the No. 1 choice in 1964. And this Is as good a time as any to remind you that this column pegged Illinois as the 1963 Western Conference dark horse before a single shot was fired. » * * Illinois graduates only nine seniors, all of whom can be replaced. The tipoff is Elliott saying that Jim Plankenhorn, the field goal specialist, could be the biggest loss. "He scored more the last two seasons than any member of the team—19 points. He was our second biggest scorer this season with 35.'' Plankenhorn, an end who became a center, was prevented from playing a great deal in the line because of lack of size, 5-11 and 182, and superior forces the past two campaigns. A coach doesn't use that kind of guy when he has line backers like Dick Butkus, a 6-3, 234-pound junior, and Don Hansen, a 6-2, 200 -pound sophomore. Butkus, everybody 's Ail-American, and Hansen played nearly every min- nte of nine rugged games on defense. Leave it to Elliott to develop a placeMcker, but the Illini won't need field goals in 1964. They'll score touchdowns. Sophs who stood out in the past season in addition to Hansen were the backs. Sam Price. Jim Grabowski and Fred Custardo. Where Illinois in 1962 came close to being a 100 per cent passing team with Mike Taliaferro, Price and Grabowski gave the Illini a running attack. Price, who can fly despite his 5-lBi and 210 pounds, sprinted 199 yards as a left halfback. Grabowski, 5 -11, 215, and who has tremendous second effort, ate up 489 yards on the ground from fullback. Custardo, 6-1 and 190, who next year will succeed Taliaferro as the first string quarterback, not only passed superbly, but turned out to be a smart signal-caller and a power runner. Included in this year's freshman brigade are two halfbacks, three ends and a linebacker who next fall will threaten members of an already formidable varsity. A young coaching staff is credited with Illinois' resurgence. Pete Elliott and his three principal recruiters, Buck McPhail, Bill Taylor and Gene Stauber, first consolidated themselves with the state high school coaches. And they didn't hesitate to go out of the state for preferred stock. ARMY COACH!

Sam Snead says so. He says at 51 he isn't in a. good physical shape as he used to be. He says his short game is beginning to deteriorate. He says he doesn't enjoy tournament golf any morn. But don't count him out. Snead will play in his first PGA Seniors early next year. And look for him when it's tee-off time in the National Open, the one major championship that has escaped him.

Coach John McDougal has a tall and experienced group at Carmi — and it goes deep. McDougal played 12 boys in the opener. O'Neal is 'high' on the Bulldogs, but he warns Carmi fans "not to hop on Cloud 9 immediately because the regional is almost sure to be held at Mt. Vernon this year and the Rams are always tough on their home floor." Roy is right. The regional will be at Mt. Vernon. The local sectional at Eldorado. The super-sectional at West Frankfort.

By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP)-UnbcHten and untied Texas won the national collegiate football championship today in the final Associated Press poll of the 1963 season, earning the title for the first time since the Longhorns began playing the sport in 1893. Becoming the first Southwest Conference team to win the national championship since Texas A&M in 1939, Texas swept through 10 opponents, wound up with the only unblemished record among major colege teams and is scheduled to meet Navy in the Cotton Bowl, New Year's Day. The Middies, losers only to SMU. finished second in the voting in a bid for their first national championship. Navy completed the regular season last Saturday with a 21-15 victory over Army. Texas had finished its season a week before. In the voting by a special AP panel of 49 sports writers and broadcasters, Texas drew 34 first-plncc'volcs and 160 points to 10 first and 41S points for Navy. Pittsburgh drew the other five first-place votes. Rose Bowl bound Illinois, however, smieezed into the No. 3 spot with 361 points to 310 for the Panthers.

The Los Angeles leakers' ace proved that Monday when he collected 29 points in LA's 134120 thrashing of Baltimore in the National Basketball Association's only game of the night. The game, played in Seattle, provided a showcase for Baylor who was perfoiTning in the city where he earned All-America honors as a collegian. The 6-5 star made the most of it. NEW YORK (AP) — Dave (Bull i Casinelli of Memphis Slate has broken New Mexico Stale's hold on the college rushing title and given the unbeaten Tigers their fii*st individual major college football champion in ' its history. 1 Trailing in third place, Casi[ nclli gained 210 yards in his final game of the season and vaulted into the rushing cham- jpionship with 1,016 yards gained j according to NCAA Service Bui reau statistics released today... Auburn quarterback Jimmy | Sidle, in first while Casinelli was trailing, picked up 1.74 in his final two games in a bid to become the first signal-caller to win the title, but fell 10 yards short of Casinelli's total. Gale Savers of Kansas was third with 917 yard. New Mexico State failed to get a player in the top 10 after winning the title for four conecu- tive years with Pcrvis Atkins, Bob Gaiters and Jim (Preacher) Pilot the last two years.

Johnny Kerr Hits 10,000 Points In NBA By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Johnny Kerr has collected his 10,000th point. Wilt Chamberlain has made two consecutive foul shots. And that's even more surprising. Kerr's lO.OOOtli point—he finished the game with 10,1016—put Philadelphia ahead to stay en route to a 126-116 National Basketball Association victory over Cincinnati Sunday night. Chamberlain, a notoriously poor foul shooter, clicked for two in succession with five seconds remaining, providing San Francisco with a 114-112 triumph over Los Angeles in the only other game scheduled. In Saturday's games, Boston walloped Baltimore 111-97, Cincinnati downed New York 116105 and St. Louis defeated Philadelphia 129-210.

Tennis Champs LA JOLLA, Calif. (AP)-Top- seeded Arthur Ashe and Darlone Hard won the singles titles in straight sets at the National Hard Court tennis matches. By LOU PKATO PITTSBURGH (AP) - This football-mad city is harboring mixed emotions this week over the fate of its two favorite football teams. There's a feeling of joy over the Pittsburgh Steelers meeting the New York Giants Sunday for the National Football League's Eastern Division title. Yet the city is indignant and puzzled over the rebuff given to the University of Pittsburgh's potent Panthers by the post-season bowl comittees. Pitt, the fourth-ranked team in the nation, finished its season last Saturday with only a 2412 loss to second-ranked Navy marring a 10-game schedule. But it was completely ignored by all the major bowls. "It was a little disapointing," said Pitt Coach John MiChelos- en, who was practically on the verge of losing his job before the season. "The kids fell they had played the best in the country and they did a tremendous job. They should have been rewarded with something and in these days it's bowls.' 1 Just why Pitt was not invited is almost behond comprehension. Here is a team (at not only had a gaudy record and high press rating, but was about as glamorous and colorful as a college club can get. It featured a daring, imaginative pro-styled offense with plenty of passing, rnd runs and reverses — often gambling deep in its own territory by passing when ahead. It had the flashy backs like Fred Mazurok and Paul Martha and big ferocious linemen who literally bowled over opponents. And most of all, it had a bold chancellor, Edward Litchfield, who had publicly ordered Coach Michelosen before the season to throw out. the old Pitt grind-'em- out offense and play more exciting football — or else. NO PLAY NEEDED LEJINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Dr. John Oswald whose undergraduate football activity at Depauw was widely mentioned when he became president of the University of Kentucky this year, told Gov. Bert Combs he was going to call only the first play of the first Wildcat football game this year then return to strictly academic matters. On the season-opening kickoff, Kentucky halfback Rodger Bird ran 85 yards for a touchdown. S CHRISTMAS GOLF GIFTS ^INDIAN HILLS G. C.
