"The kids are giving us everything they've got," he says. "They're working hard-and trying to learn. I'm really pleased." Davis is especially pleased wilh the sophomores: "They're really enthusiastic, and they've already adjusted to the new coaches. Whit Fowlkes and Larry Parnell have had an excellent start." , Having said that, Davis Â· admitted that the Bulldogs have a long way to go., "The .varsity is way. behind 'Â· on" fundamentals," he said. "We're having to do some things in practice you normally don't have to dp." But he emphasized, "That's.no reflection on their attilure." Already, the battle for the starting quarterback job is spirited. Two seniors, Lawson Osburn and Greg McClelland, are running neck and neck. "We're not even in pads yet." said Davis, "but you can see that each one does certain things well. "Osburn is probably quicker for 10 yards, but McClelland runs a 4.9 40. Last spring, Lawson had a knee problem aod couldn't go that fast, although he might now. ABOUT EVEN "Greg is' the better drop-back passer, but Lawson turns up better on the sprint-out pass Lawson is quicker around the corner, but Greg is better on the pitchout. All things consi dered, they're about even right now." McClelland has punted, place kicked and kicked off in the past, but may not p u n t this year. "I believe it messes up a player to try to combine placekicking and punting," sale Davis. "One involves locking the v ankle, and the other doesn't.' Most impressive of the run ning backs so far has been full back Brian Ricks. "He's 'gained up to 195 pounds," said Davis "but somehow he looks trim mer. Last year he blocked fo Dwight Tucker most of the time but this year he'll carry thi ball a lot. . In fact, all four of our back will carry it, with the fullbac and tailback carrying about In same. Brian will probably d more than his share in the ear ly going." Davis singled'oui Larry Atha, Dayton Lierley and Bobby Davis as top performers In the line. Neil Brulon played one year t basketball at Soccoro, N.M., efore transferring 'to Fayette- ille High School in. 1972.: Near end of his sophomore sea- on, he started as a guard in same lineup with center Daryll Saulsberry, who wit lay for Arkansas this year. "He did'everything for us,' ecalls Brut'on. "Score, get the ebound, throw the release lass,.block shots--you name it think our record was some thing like 19-6. and we lost in he district tournament to. th eventual slate champion." Bruton continued, "Daryll vas just a 'great all-round athlete. He .was a great hurdler, nd he.played offensive end in ootball his junior year. He vould catch passes and run around for 20 yards before atiy- me touched,him." Neil's recollection of Sauls- jerry goes back -even f u r t h e r : 'He was always pretty tall, but when he was young he didn't lave his coordination. In bas- cetball, he used t o ' throw the ball away all the lime.". But by high school, it a different story. "I remmeber ;hat on fast-break .drills, about our of us liked to dunk the jail," said Bruton. "But Daryll could dunk it in every, way possible. He just did whatever e wanted to with the ball." Soccoro's coach was former Hew Mexico University star Ron Becker. -"Every once in a rtiile.55 said Neil, "Coach Becker and Daryll would go one-on- one. They could really get down/' . Bruton said that the compel!-; lion in New Mexico is on roughly the same level as that in Arkansas, but that he'd never played against a better basketball team than Conway nor been hit harder in football than he was by Fort Smith Northside. He also said he'd gained a new appreciation for the line-, backitrg fury of Dick McCutcheon after watching the game film of Fayetteville's 13-6 win over Conway last year. "Dwight Tucker and I were 'going to drive to Little Rock to see Dick play in the All-Star. game." said Neil, "but I thought it was this week and got back from New Mexico too late." Both Bruton and Tucker will enroll at the University of Arkansas. Neither will play football. "I could have gone to a smaller school and played," said Neil, "but they want it to he your whole life. If it can't be f u n , I'd rather not play." St. Louis 'hilaphia Pittsburgh Vlon jreal Jew JYork Chicago /. Los Angeles Cincinnati Atlanta Houston San Fran .

Many Oiler veterans are not pleased wilh Gillman's philosophy, but the Oiler coach says he is not in a popularity contest. "If I can win, everyone can hate me," give them me if I can win."
