20 Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Wed., Sepl, 25, 1974 . FAVCTTEVILLE, ARKANSAS Harris May Not Play For ASl) Saturday JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) -Football Coach Bill Davidson of Arkansas State University said Tuesday officials would not decide until game time Saturday whether lailoack Willie Harris can play against Louisiana Tech. Harris lias been leniporarilj sidelined with a hamstring pull Davidson expressed serious concern about Harris' conditio and mentioned that Harris would undergo physical theraps daily until Saturday. The Indians continued rccog nition work Tuesday on Lotii siana Tech in a two-hour dril that Davidson called a poor practice. Dolphins Bob Kuchenberg, Tim Foley Ink World Football League Contracts MIAMI (AP) -- "As long as he Miami Dolphins have Ihc best football coach who's ever coached, they'll be con- cnders." Tim Foloy says when asked to look beyond Ihe current campaign. But Folcy won't be around to liclp Coach Don Simla, the man who won his unqualified praise, make good on Ihe prediction. The five-year corncroack, along with offensive guard Bob Kucchcnberg. will play for the World Football League's Birmingham Americans in 1975. That makes five Dolphin stalwarts who won't be back next season. Last March, running backs Larry Csonka and Jim Kiick and wide receiver Paul War field signed a multi-million dollar pact with the WFL's Mem phis Soultuncn. Foley and Kue- chenherg signed contracts jusi before the season began bill public announcement was liek back until Monday. Far from crying oul loud, Dolphin coaches and players -including Ihc dcfeclors -- say Ihere is greater emphasis on winning this year than ever be- 'ore. Parents File Suit PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Par- enls of a Ricliland High School senior, suspended from the football team for smoking, have filed suit in Allegheny County Court to have him reinstated. The suit was lodged Tuesday in behalf of James McMillen. 17. a 6-foot-2, 220-pound tackle from nearby Gihsonia. The suit claims the suspension was "arbitrary and capricious" and that it jeopardizes McMillcn's chances of gelling an athletic - scholarship. Judge John Hester will hear argu menls on the matter Oct .7. "We all have Ihe same Immc- diale goal -- another Super Howl," said linebacker Doug Swift, the team's player repre- scntalive. "I'll be damned if we go out on anything hut a winning nolc." said Kucchcnberg. "Lar ry. Paul and Jim are giving 100 per ccnl and that's exactly what I intend lo do." Bolh Kuech en berg and Foley, five-year veterans from Notre Dame and Purdue, respective ly, cited financial and job security as key reasons for theii jump at a joint news conference at Foley's home. Foley .said he signed a five year nocul contract w i t h the WFL learn, while his contrac with Ihc Dolphins contained no such clause. Kuechenberg salt his annual American salar under a miiltiyear contract will be "more than I'm making this year by playing out my op lion." He did not indicate hov much more, however. As Indians Prepare For Powerful La. Tech Davidson Worried About First-Game Jitters JONESBOHO, Avk. (AP) --i Arkansas Sliilc University 1 Coacli Bill Davidson is worried about first-game jitters...again. The Indians wore scheduled to iron oul any little problems against Southwestern Louisiana Sept. V. but Hurricane Carmen scrapped the plan. Now, ASU's opener is Saturday al Jonesboro against Louisiana Tech, winner of 1'3 straight--the longest winning streak of any NCAA team in the nation. The Indians already had plenty of incentive. La. Tech has not lost a Southland Conference game since joining the SLC three years ago and then there's the opening of ASU's new stadium. "There's no way we won't be mentally ready to play a ball game," Davidson said. "I think our players waul to have a good season. I t h i n k they're aware of our situation with Louisiana Tech and the stadium. 'The thing we're concerned about is making the kind of mistakes people make in the first ball game. We're a f r a i d of jumping offsides, not being real sharp, not reacting to stunts and being unable lo sustain an offensive drive." Davidson described the Bulldogs as the "kind of football team that lakes advantage of any mistake." ASU had no game film to trade since it had no game, but the Indians scouted La. Tech in a 16-7 victory over Illinois State and last week's 42-15 romp over the University of Texas at Arlington. "I think they've got a pretty good book on us. anyway," Davidson said. "There's no way we can have a closed practice with this construction going on. There may be somebody in a hard-hat watching us." Gone from the Bulldogs' 1973 national championship team is quarterback Denny Duron and wide receiver Roger Can 1 , a first-round d r a f t choice. , Davidson said tight end Mike Barbccr had succeeded Carr as the Bulldogs' big-play man. "He has the same kind of speed Carr bad. Because hc!s Hie tight end, llicy can gel him in a mismatch against a linebacker or strong safely and he can rim past you." Steve Maynes, a sophomore, has replaced Duron. "We think he's a good one," Davidson said. "They just never have a bud one." Tailback Charles McDaniol and fullback Roland Harper do most of the running. Davidson has great respect for bolh. McDaniel, who is called Thoxton Traded CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Cleveland Browns acquired tight end Jim Thaxton from the San Diego Chargers Tuesday in return for a f u t u r e draft choice, the club announced. 'Quick-six." has scored four touchdowns this year and has 41 for his career. He runs inside as well as h« does outside. He's a complete football player." Davidson's defense Includes Ihe nine leading tacklers from 1973 nnd should be sound. Davidson also anticipates passing more than in recent years wilti Steve Burks and James Flynir doing the throwing. The Indians ,had three scrimmages last week--No. 1 offense a'gainst No. 1 defense. "We like for both of them to have success, but because we had gone Hint long without a game, we thought we ought lo make it a little tougher." Davidson got an insight into his team's character when the Indians returned from the aborted trip to Lafayette, La. ·· He offered the learn a few days ' off but the players voled lo continue praclicing.
