For First Day Of Fall Practice NorthwMt Arfcanias TIMES, Thur*., Aug. 15, 1974 FAYKTTIVILLE, ARKANiA* 11. McAfee Vows To Answer Bell -- Hal McAfee does not fit the footbal player stereotype. He talks in thoughtful sentences, not monosyllables. He majors in history--with n eye on law school--and not lysical education. He is not gargantuan at 6-0, 10 pounds. But, he is a football player--a arting linebacker at the Uni- crsity of Arkansas as a soph more. ; CHAMPIONS AND RUNNERS-UP (TIMESplioto by Ray Gray) .. .in the junior golf tournament at Fayetteoille Country Club Tuesday were (from left) Scott Stanberry, Read Hudson, Gait Davis and Karen Rosso.

"There are other players that] may be faster or stronger, but tie'll be in the ball game if he's healthy." said Jimmy Johnson, coordinator of the UA defense. McAfee is recuperating from knee surgery. He was hurt early in spring practice and got the cast removed in the middle of May. He stuck to his rehabilitation program and contends he will be on'the field the first day of all practice. "There are certain distractions which make it hard to get there early in the morning, but these next two years ore the last shot I'll have nt ploying football," McAfee said. "This is only my sixth year and 1 really like it. It's been good for me. I like the competition. It's enabled me to go to college. I'll be sorry, when it's over. You realize football is not a game that's: going to last Paterno Leads Coaches In Winning Percentage Okay, all you college football rivia : experts: Which two famous coaches have Identical vinning' percentage marks *en the figuring is carried mly to three places? : Which coach, with at least light years in the business, has tie'best winning percentage? ; ' And of the coaches with the p e s t winning percentages, vhose teams have been tied the most? . All these and other questions can be answered now that Elnore "Scoop" Hudgins, the in- ormation director of the Southeastern Conference, has compiled and again released his list jf Top 20 Coaches entering the 1974 season. Answer N o . 1: Alabama's Paul "Bear" Bryant and Ohio State's Wqndy Hayes are the coaches with identical winning percentage marks--.753. Hu.cJgins, who originated his list in 1958 when he was sports information director at Van derbilt University, has figurec a little bit more, however, and reports that Bryant is just a smidgen ahead--.7539 to .7536, Answer No. 2: Perm Slate's Jot Paterno qualified for Hud gins' list for the first lime thif year and immediately vaulte into the No.' 1 spot with his record- of 74 victories, 13 de eats and one tie. That's for an 848 mark. Paterno replaced Arizona itate's Frank Kush, who Iropped to the runner-up spot vith a record of 132 victories, 4 losses and one tie for .793, Answer No. 3: Bear Bryant las been tied 16 times, far more than any other coach on tie Top 20 list. Hudgins originated the Top 20 1st "to foster national recogni- ion of the most successful men n the profession." They must have a winning record and at least five years service at a major school. To qualify for the 1974 honor roll, a coach must have 70 or more victories." Hudgins 1974 list actually has 21 coaches listed because Georgia's Vince Dooley, No. 11, anrj Clem'sbn's' Jim "Ked" Parker, No. 17, each have 73 careers victories.

I want to play r winning teams those last ro years." By the end of July, McAfee's ily routine included running vo miles, 500 yards back- ards, figure eights and then 10 stadiurrie--that's 65 rows K 130 steps." McAfee led the tackle charts ntil he was injured at midsea- on in 1973. He was back in the arlirig lineup by the end of te season and was looking for- ar'd to spring practice. "During the spring, I looked t films of myself and knew the lings I had to improve on, " e said. "The different tech- iques, getting off the blockers. had really looked forward to he spring to get a lot of it one." He was injured during two on wo drills with the offensive nemen. The other defender lammed an offensive guard nto McAfee when he was iraced to make the tackle. "As soon is it happened, I mew what had happened," he fiid: ;: "I f e l t " . . . despair, dis ippointment . . . " ; "He's the kind of guy who ;ays he's going to do something and then figures out a way to do it" said a cohort of McAfee LITTLE FANFARE McAfee was recruited withotr .he fanfare of so many athletes He moved from California I Arkansas for his senior year o high school and played most o the season at tight end. H went to linebacker for the fina game of his high school career McAfee injured his ankle a the beginning of his freshma season "and 'was redshirted til next year. "I was determined to pla after I was up here," McAfe said. "I decided I was going t stick it out. I was into them more than they were into me They could work me an hou and a half or two hours and was going to get a college edu ation. I could have gone to ·· mailer .school and played soon- r, but if you're not going for e top, you might as welt not o. -.-· "I am not a great athlete, but feel I can do things. First ,of I I try to be in better shape ,an everybody else on the eld. When everybody else : is red and slowing down, I want o keep on going. I try to. (mow ny position and know what the her team likes to do so that I on't make mistakes. ; That's 'hen a person gets in a hole. I ·y not to handicap myself." He said he tries to be an in- elligent football player. HAVE TO THINK "You can't just be total emo- on. You've got to be thinking II the time. When you see the uard and ball carrier coming ight at you, you can quit think- ng. If you're playing straight ithout thinking about a re- ponsibility, you get burne.d. Vhen you get burned on de- ense, that's pretty grim. "I know that when it's third and seven and the other team s in the I-slot, they will probably run one of three or four Dlays. I know where I can ciit lown and know approximately vhat they are going to do. This ittle bit of anticipation can help make up for the lack ° of something else." McAfee described himself as the type player that must play with enthusiasm. ~"... "Starling about Thursday, I ,ry to avoid anything that might distract me," he said. I get off by myself where it's riuiel and everything and I talk to myself about what the other team may do." V Arkansas has the makings of an excellent defense and.; a sound McAfee would be a plus! "He knows the entire defense and knows what we're trying to accomplish." Johnson said. "He's thinking right thera along with you." 29 231-70.18 .753 2S 19260-8 .753 14 109-35.7 .745 fff GET A SWEET DEAL H PICKUPS! Pickup prices will never be this low again.
