The game was scoreless until ess than six minutes remained n the fourth quarter, when Greenland's Greg Leach picked ip a West Fork punt that hac cen fumbled by a teammate and returned it 63 yards for a touchdown.

NerthwMt Arkansas TIMES, Friday, S»pt. 6, 1974 ·) rAYlTTIVILLI, AKKANIAI r ^ T l Every Year Looks Lean But 'Bama Always Hard On SEC TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) "Every year looks real bad for us and ception," "Bear" this one is no ex- says Bryant, Coach whose Paul Ala- .i'fl bama football team missed the national title last time by two points. Other teams should h * v e it bad, with the Crimson Tide the favorite to capture an unprecedented fourth straight Southeastern Conference championship and go to its 16th straight post season bowl, a record, and its 28lh bowl trip over-all, also a record. Bui conference titles and bowl trips a r e almost secondary to Bryant,, who says, "The national championship is our goal every year." Bryant's 31 coaching victories put him third on the all time list. He has won three national championships at Alabama but the closest the Tide has come to the title since its 1965 national championship was l a s t Dec. 31 in the Sugar Bowl when Notre Dame won a thriller 24 23 and captured the honor. Alabama was ranked fourth in the final poll. Despite Bryant's worries, he admits his upcoming team has several strong points: Quarterbacks, runners and defense. ORDINARY SPEED "But our team speed is very ordinary, especially our offensive line, and we are going to have to improve o u r kicking game," Bryant says. Senior G a r y Rutledge and junior Richard Todd, who shared duties last season, again backup help from Rober Fra ley. Bryana says Todd also might do the punting, making the fake punt a threat. "We've got running backs running out our ears," he says but "they've got to block better than they did in the spring to make the wishbone go." They include Randy Billings ley, Calvin Culliver, Willie Shelby, James Taylor, Mike Stock and Ralph Stokes, all veterans Runner Wilbur Jackson a n t spile end Wayne W h e e V e r sparks of last year, are gone and Bryant says, "We don' lave anyone who can replac hem." Competing for Wheeler's job are Joe Dale Harris, T h a t Flanagan, Wayne Rhodes ani Russ Schamun. George Pugh al light end and Sylvester Croom at center 1 are solid, hut other line positions are unsettled. Linebacker - Woodrow Lowe, whom Bryant compares to LeRoy Jordan, anchors a testing defense that also includes Mike Washington, Tyrone King a n d Ricky Davis in the secondary, and Mike Dubose, Leroy Cook Randy Hall and Steve Kulback on the line. Alabama opens Sept. 14 at Maryland and Bryant, says t h e Terrapins "will be the most difficult team we'll have to beat I'm not saying they'll be the ficult team we'll have to beat I'm not saying they'll be the best we play, but they'll be the most difficult team because we're an unsettled team."

THIRD-PLACE CHECK . . .Porter Everett oj Bass Line Pro Shop presents the third-place check of ?75 fo Roger Mhoan and Bob Carnes after Bass Buddy Tournament Number Four on the Arkansas River. Bob and Roger also received a jree entry into the October finals of the Mr. Bass of Arkansas competition. Last chance to qualify for Mr. Bass is September 15 in Bass Buddy Number Five on Beaver Lake Zlayton Moves From Halfback To Secondary AUSTIN, Tex. (AP) --. Raymond Clayborn, who ran 85 yards for a touchdown against Arkansas last year as a freshman halfback has been moved to safety by Texas Coach Darrell Royal. 'We're desperately thin · in the defensive backfield. Raymond is tall and has exceptional speed and excellent range, hut right now I'm sure he's pretty confused," Roya said after Wednesday's practice. Clayborn will be starting safety, replacing sophomore Joe Bob Bizy.ell, who w a s switched to second siring defen sive haifback behind Terry Me lancon. Clayborn was an all-city te fensive back in his senior year at Fort Worth Trimble in 1972 and Royal said he wes recruit ed as a defensive back. Junior Joe Aboussie replaces Clayhprn in the first lean backfield, joining quarterback Marty Akins and running backs Earl Campbell and Don Bur isk.
