"Thursday practices are always good," said Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles yesterday. "You always drop a rew passes and fumble a few times, because you're fired up for the Saturday game. If a few players get sick and throw up, that means they're really ready." Ike Forte didn't do anything like that Thursday, but he did seem rcovered from an ' Astro- toe' Injury he suffered Wednesday.

" Defensiviely for Woodland, Harris had special praise for loseman Joe West, tackle Mike rludspeth, and defensive ends Jim Harrington and Rice Bre- ·er. "We were a little suspect of our defense before the game," Harris pointed out, "and they played much better than we expected. But our offensive mistakes were costly for us."

(AP) -- Joe Bob Bizzell, a former all-state halfback at Odessa Permian who won Texas' starting safety job last year as a freshman, has been dismissed from the Learn for disciplinary reasons. Texas Coach Darrell Royal did not disclose specific reasons for the dismissal Thursday. Linemen Ken Thurman, a sophomore, and freshman Don Thurman, were also dropped from the squad by Royal. Bizzel, who weighs only 138 pounds, became Texas' starting safety in the second half of the Oklahoma game last autumn. He was the No. 1 safety in fall training until Royal moved halfback Raymond Clay- horn to Bizzell's post. Clayborn, a sophomore, was an excellent defensive back in aigh school at Fort Worth. SMU Dealt Another Blow, Star Center Is Ineligible DALLAS (AP) -- Southern Methodist, already stung by a ,wo-year NCAA probation for paying players to make tackles, suffered another blow Thursday just two clays short of its foot- jail opener with North Texas when starting center and co- captain Mike Smith was declared ineligible. SMU Athletic Director Dick Davis said "Mike was involved in one of the infractions" listed by the NCAA when the Southwest Conference school was placed on probation which included a bowl and television ban. Some of the infractions included rewarding players with dinners at restaurants, movie passes, excess payment for tickets and dollars for tackles. Davis would not list which NCAA rule Smith, a fifth year senior, was declared guilty of violating. "There are some reasons why I cannot discuss it at this ime," Davis said. Davis said Smith of Odessa, Tex., "will be allowed to retain ils scholarship and complete lis education, but will not be permitted to compete in a sport at the intercollegiate level. Area Football Action "We are very saddened at the outcome of our appeals for the benefit of Mike and it is the opinion of SMU that the decision of the NCAA is harsh," Davis said. "SMU is required by the NCAA to adhere to the rules and regulations of that organization." He added "It is unjust that a young man has to incurr this kind of wrath" from the NCAA. Davis said the NCAA ruling Thursday came as a shock. "We had no idea at all and this puts us in an awkward situation because we have a game Saturday," Davis said. "I hope we've got it all behind us now."
