,.,,! · Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Monday, Pit. 7, 1974 RUNS FOR FOUR .. .Arkansas fallback Marsh White (32) picks up four yards in Ihe third period against TCU Saturday night. Hog guard R. C. Thielemann (63) holds off a TCU defender Nostalgia In Vogue As Arkansas Peaks For First Conference Game LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Nostalgia was in vogue Saturday night at Fort Worth. · The Arkansas-TCU football game looked like something out o f ' t h e 1960s: " --Arkansas' proud defense swarming the Horned Frogs at everv turn. -'--Arkansas' offense that had been questionable earlier in the ^jseason hitting on all cylinders. --Even a third-down punt by the Razorbacks from deep in their end of the field. As a result, Arkansas started its Southwest Conference season with a victory for the 16th straight season. The score was 49-0 and it could have been worse. A r k a n s a s Coach Frank Broyles likes to talk about the pride of the Razorbacks' defense, which has allowed only one touchdown in four games. The Razorbacks have blanked two straight opponents for the first time since the openirfg of the 1969 season. TCU's best chance to score came in the third quarter when the Horned Frogs reached the Arkansas seven. On fourth down, defensive back Howard Sampson smashed flanker Gary Patterson out of bounds as he caught a pass. Sampson was rewarded with a bear-hug by linebacker Dennis Winston, who \vas outstanding again. "You would have thought it was the winning touchdown from the sideline," Broyles said. "The players didn't want them to score." Broyles likens the pride ol the defense to that of the 196 team, which shut out ils lasl five regular-season opponents. In the 17-0 season finale against Texas Tech. Bobby Ro per preserved the scoreless streak by blocking two Tech field goaf attempts. Broyles used the example to illustrate pride since he said he was un sure whether Roper had ever blocked any other field goal at tempts. . 28-0 AT HALF TCU netted 32 yards and one first down in the first half. Ar kansas led 28-0 at intermission. Offensively, the Razorbacks were much more efficient than they had been in the first threi games. The touchdown drives con sumed: 93 yards in six plays 25 yards in three plays ; 7( yards in six plays; 72 yards in seven plays; 83 yards in six plays; 74 yards in two plays and 66 yards in seven plays That's an average of 69 yard: in slightly more than fivt plays. Take out the 25-yard TD drive, set up by Winston's pas interception, and the average i 76 yards in 5V4 plays. Those slalistics would mak wishbone teams !ik« Ok'-'ioma Alabama and Texas proud. Broyles said the llazorbacks an mostly true wishbone lays. Time after time, the quarter- acks were able to pitch to the leet halfbacks on the finaj ihase of the triple option. "We got more piccnes off ian we will in SO per cent of ic games," Broyles said. He said the option pitch was ffective because TCU wasn't xpeciting it. The statistics compiled by the tarting backfield are impresive: Barnabas White 85 yards n 12 carries, Ike Forte 77 ards on 11 carries; Marsh Vhile 42 yards on six carries nd Mark Miller 39 yards on ix carries. Broyles said the Razorbacks tuck with the triple option be- ause of the ability of the quar- erbacks -- Miller, Scott Bull nd Mike Kirkland. "Why have an o p t i o n of- ense if you can't make it go," e said. TCU CHANGED Broyles said TCU changed its [efensive look time and again ind credited tlie offensive loaches with the fact that the if tensive line never lost its ag- jressiveness. In addition to 377 yards rush- ng, Arkansas completed five ol even passes for 167 yards. Bull lit on four of four for 129 yards and two touchdowns. One covered 74 yards with Freddie Douglas on the receiving enc and the other was caught by Elijah Davis for 20 yards. Ike Forte got Arkansas' firsl two touchdowns on runs of 2! and five yards. Miller secret on runs of five and seven yards and Barnabas White had a 10 yard scoring run. The Hazorbacks' total score lor the post two weeks has been 109-0. , "Our job as coaches is to joint out the reason for the ligh scores and not let it in fluence our practice," Broyles said. He said former AUiletie Director John Barnhill once tolc him: "You beat somebody 60-C and you'll think touchdown: come easy and they don't.' He reiterated that it is mud easier to execute defensive!; than offensively. "On offense, at least mm players have to execute to havi a pretty good play," he said "Defensively, one man can break through and throw th ball carrier for a three-yan loss while the other players ar. on the ground." Broyles said the Hazorback played everybody that mad the trip to Fort Worth. Someone asked if this couli hurt the first unit. No way, h said. The first team remains fresh He said he believed Arkansa lost to Texas in 1962 becaus the first unit had been worn ou against Baylor the previou r eek. Arkansas led Baylor 28- ut had to put its first leai: aek in the game to preserve 8-21 victory. Broyles said defensive en Ian Watson is expected to un ergo knee surgery and tha Janny Crawford would replac im at end. He said Watso Iso would have lo be replace n all speciality teams. He als aid center Richard LaFarug vould probably miss the Baylo ame Saturday at Fayettevill lecause of an ankle sprain.

Wynn Guarantees Ml Pennant P I T T S B U R G H (AP) lore's nothing like two vlc- ries on the road before going ome to make a team feel like 10 National League cham- ons. "I'm not saying we're going sweep, but we're the Nation- League champs," said Jim yynn, the power behind the oclgers' season-long drive that as left them one victory short ' the NL title and a World cries berth after Sunday's 5-2 ·iumpli over the Pittsburgh Pi- ates. "We're in HID driver's seat," aid Ron Cey, who rapped a omer, two doubles and a nsle to lie the.. playoff record I four hits in one game set by ittsburgh's Bob Robertson in 971. "Now the Pirates got to pull all the stops," echoed Willie C r a w f o r d , whose pinch-hit, single brought Cey home with :he winning run against Pittsburgh's relief ace Dave Giusti. No team has overcome a 2-0 deficit since the bcst-of-five intra-league playoffs began in 1969 and the Pirates task is made more difficult by the series shifting to Los Angeles. "I'd say we have our backs to the wall," Pittsburgh Manager Danny Murlaugh said after the Dodgers scored three runs off Giusti to snap a 2-2 tie. "But we've been counted out of it nine or 10 times this year, and here we are playing in the big series," added Murlaugh, whose club was 14 games under .500 early in the season RECORD MATCHED The Dodgers, who w o n 3-0 Saturday behind the pitching of Don Sutton, led 2-0 into the Pirates' seventh Sunday, and Pittsburgh's 15 scoreless innings matched the playoff record they- set in two games against Cincinnati in 1970. The Pirate famine ended in the seventh inning when singles by Paul Popovich, Richie Zisk and Al Oliver helped Pittsburgh pull to a 2-2 tie against Dodger starter Andy Mcssersmith. However, Murtaugh had to sacrifice starting pitcher Jim Rooker for a pinch-hitter in that inning, and the Dodgers broke the game open in the eighth against Giusti. Cey, who made two errors in the Dodgers' first-game victory, opened the inning with a double into the left field corner. He then beat catcher Manny Sunguillcn's throw to third on a ball tapped weakly in front of the plate by Bill Russell and scored on Crawford's bloop single to left. A single to right by f r e e- swinging Manny Mota t h e n chased Giusli and scored Russell, before Dave Lopes stroked another single off rookie Larry Demery to score Crawford with the final run. Ramon Hernandez, the third Pirate reliever, got Steve Garvey to hit into a bases-loaded double play to end the inning, hut Dodger relief ace Mike Marshall shut out the Pirates over the final two innings. The Pirates will pin their hopes on Bruce Kison, 9-8, when the series resumes Tuesday, while the Dodgers will counter with Doug Rau, 13-11. 3ando, Fosse Hit HRs Holtzman Blanks Birds OAKLAND (AP) -- It was a amiliar script: Oakland trail- ng Baltimore in the-American League playoffs until Sal Bando tarted swinging at Dave IcNally's pitches. .There were a few new vrinkles thrown in, such as two rrors by the usually sure- landed Baltimore Orioles. They nabled Bando and Ray Fosse o drive in four unearned runs vith home runs as the A's re- ipunded from Saturday^ 6-3 lefeat to whip the Orioles 5-0 Sunday behind Ken Holtzman's ive-hit pitching. The A's, two-time defending Vorld Series champions, victimized McNally for the second straight year to square the best-of-five-game series at 1-1. A year ago in Baltimore, Bando h o m eT e d twice against McNally, and had a third homer taken away by a leaping catch. Bando led off the fourth inning by watching two pitches miss the strike zone. Then, he said, "I tried to hold up on my swing and popped it up. I was just depressed." But Bobby Grich, Baltimore's Golden Glove-caliber second baseman, dropped the high pop in foul territory. "I had it right in my glove." Grich said. "It wasn't like the ball was right in the sun -- just a little bit." The repreived Bando lined a Geiberger Munches Peanut Butter Crackers To Victory LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) -- Al Geiberger kept munching on peanut butler crackers and alking to himself. "If I don't keep talking .to myself, all the time, I tend to jack o f f . I kept telling myself that second place doesn't do : any good at this stage of my csreer," the 37-year-old veteran said Sunday after his three- stroke victory in the Sahara Invitational Golf Tournament. He talked himself into it, shooting a final round 69 -- two under par on the sun-splashed Country Club course -- for a 273 total. "When you go so long without winning, you begin to think you can't," said Geiberger, wiiose last previous' triumph came in the 1966 PGA National Championship. He paused for a moment, smiled broadly and said: "Johnny Miller wins eight in one year, I win one in eight years." A LITTLE HELP He got a little help in winning this one. "All of a sudden everybody laid down," he said. "Usuall; they're going the other way -they're coming at you. But this time they backed off. It's a good feeling." He clinched it when challeng ing Chi Chi Rdriguez, withir one stroke of the top, hit his tei There's always a warm welcome... with Heil Electric Heat.

"I thought he caught it," iando said of a play that would have been a re-run of Al Bum- irys leaping grab in Game Two of the 1973 playoffs in vhich Holtzman outpitched tlcNally, 6-3. Fosse, sidelined much of the eason from surgery on a disc n his back, credited teammate Jesus Alou's "magic wand' after belling a double in the .eventh inning and the three run homer in the eighth off of Grant Jackson. An error by substitute shortstop Frank Bak er kept the inning going f o r jsse. "Its heavier, 35 ounces, and has more wood," said Fosse who wasn't sure he'd be c starter behind the plate unti Friday night. "I dreamed I'd lit a three-run homer. It came .wo days later," he said.
