(AP) This time, Bob Blackman and his Illinois football team appear ready for the same suicidal early schedule which inflicted Blackman's first Illini club with six straight defeats in 1971. The talented, but depth- lacking Illini are confronted with the same buzzsaw start which had them reeling on the ropes before a rags-to-rich«s turnabout and five successive closing wins. Led by towering, skilled quarterback Mike Wells and 16 other returning starters, the Illini open here Sept. 16 in a Big Ten tangle w.lh highly-regarded Michigan State. Then they wade into three formidable outside contests against Southern California, Washington and Penn State, before resuming Big Ten play against top-rated conference contenders Ohio State, defending champion Michigan and Purdue, in that order. After Oct. 28 and Purdue, the i 11 i n i — s a g g i n g or singing—will enter the Big Ten stretch run against Northwestern, Indiana, Wisconsin and Iowa. "No one has to tell me about Big Ten football," commented Blackman, who ventured to Illinois after a brilliant IG-season Ivy League career at Dartmouth.

Last season, Blackmar.'s slow-starling Illini—trying to grasp the new coach's intricate attack with all Its variations of the T formation—were trounced by Michigan Slate, North Carolina, Southern California, Washington, Ohio State, and Michigan. But suddenly the 6-5, 220- pound Wells got the Illini rolling, hitting on 51 per cent of his passes in the final five games, with a roaring stretch conquest of Purdue, Northwestern, Indiana, Wisconsin and Iowa. That gave the Blinj a third- place Rig Ten tic with Ohio Slate at 5-3 and, more important, the most Illinois conference victories since ils 1063 Rose Bowl team. "We've learned to think like winners, but we are thin at several positions," said Blackman. "With the kind of schedule we have, we won't be an over-powering team. We'll have to take a lot of chances and play a game of wide-open, finsesc football." Blackman's biggest problems appear to be in backup talent, particularly in the backfield and at offensive ASSUMPTION PIONEERS Coach Jim Monken Sept. 15—BCHcvIllc West Away Sept. 23—Althofl'* Away Sept. 2!l—Madison Home Oct. 7—DeSmet* Home Oct. 14—Lincoln (ESL) Away Oct. 21—St. Louis U, High* Home Oct. 28—O'Fallon Home Nov. 4—East St. Louis Away Nov.

The ground game can explosive with Well's strong running talent and the striking power of halfback George Uremovich, who could attain superstar status, and veteran fullback Mike Navarro. Wells also has fine receivers—split ends Garvin Roberson, Joe Lewis and Joe Smaller, and tight ends John Bedalow and Jim Rucks. Other standouts among 10 returning offensive starters are centre Larry McCarren, guards John ^Levant! and John Gann, and' tackles Brune Dobson and Gerry Sullivan. Defensive kingpin is Tab Bennett, ail-American candidate at end, who hubs a solid, experienced array including tackle Davis Wright, linebackers Larry Allen Octavus Morgan and John Wiza, and defensive backs Greg Colby and Lurry Huisinga. Coach Duffy Daughterly of Michigan State said recently that Illinois will be "(ho toughest team in the Big Ten." That's underslandable, considering Duffy's Spartans open against Illinois. Blackman says he used to bicycle to the Rose Bowl as a 9-year-old in Long Beach, Calif. He says he'd like to pedal the Illini there — if they survive that brutal start. ST.
