The Cowboys would have loved ' to pass last week, but the blocking broke down, and the option failed to get off the ground. Both those areas received attention and scorn to e well on the way to recovery. Harris' crew received a oig blow with the loss ot Jim Herrington, out for a couple of weeks with a rib injury.

Broyles, who usually fields reporters' questions for three or 'our minutes after practice, talked easily with the. assembled writers for 20 " minutes after Wednesday's workout. "We had another good practice," he said. "We filmed yesterday's practice, and were encouraged. by it.

' ' CONFIDENCE UP As'BroyleS'Was talking, Freddie Douglas made one of his patented circus catches, "Freddie's confidence is really up," said Broyles. "He's made two great catches the last t w o weeks." Indiana of the N C A A ' national meet. Western Kentucky, probably the strongest :' cross country unit in { the nation, won that meet.

All { in all, as Renfrow is quick to f point out, it should be the 5 toughest test of the year for' £ Arkansas. . J -iThis year's race is over five j nilles. Last year's number one « Rfizorback performer Steve t Houk holds the. course record {-· with "a 24:13 in the 1973 race. Although Houk still holds one ' year of eligibility he's n o t ;; competing because 'of a leg '^ aperation. Randy Melacon should take '£ Sp the slack created by Houk's fj absence with ease. Melacon is ;-; individually undefeated this split end on offense and Malcom McPhearson will take his place at defensive end. In addition, Harris has inserted running back Greg Montez into the secondary to replace Bretl Parker. "We thought we coulc use Gregg's speed back there and give Brett a rest." All-in-all, this week's situation boils down to better blocking and no mistakes. H a r r i s is hoping his crew can put it toge (her.

"Today was our best passing practice of the fall. All three quarleroacks had good timing. That's encouraging, because bad timing is what has hurt our passing game." · Asked whether Scott Bull or, Mike Kirkland would likely follow starter Mark Miller into the Texas game. Broyles said, "We'll .play it- by ear. I don't know what that means, but all the other coaches say it and it sounds good. Seriously,, all three of our quarterbacks have shown they can do the job." CLAYBORN THREAT Broyles said the Hazorbacks worked hard on the kicking game, concentrating on the Breakaway threat of the Lpng- norns' Raymond · Clayborn. Today Arkansas will, work on Mouse 1 kickoff return,- which involves one or more' handoffs. "It's hard to stop,".' said Broyles. "LSU has used it successfully for years." . . Halfback Vaughn Lusby and tackle Chuck McKinney were both termed ''doubtful" for this Saturday by Broyles. "They're both at about 80 per cent," he said. Broyles noted, however, that Jon Rhiddlehoover "looked good." He also said linebackers Dennis Winston and Marvin Daily had good practices. "Our main concern is the health of our defensive 'line," said Broyles. "It obviously helps the defense when Rhiddle- hoover is in there. If McKinney can't play, Rhiddlehoover may play nose guard with (freshman) Gary Roper going to tackle." Ike Forte was .back in full- pads and should be at full speed against Texas! Fullback Marsh White suffered an injured toe Wednesday, but Broyles said the injury was not serious.

Craig has been out with a leg injury since Ihe Oklahoma Stale game. - · The Rararbacks have been working mostly at one-on-pne pass patterns, since the Wishbone dictates that kind of coverage. Broyles looked over at freshman placekicker Steve Liltle and said, "Isn't that sidewinder fascinating? I hope he gels to kick a lot Saturday." .Someone asked if Mark Miller might be panicking when mable to find his receivers q u i c k l y . " N o , " s a i c Broyles. "He just wants to run Before he hurt his knee, he was ;he greatest scrambler I'd ever seen for a young quarterback.' Broyles said that Richard LaFargue would be able to start at center against Texas and that 'W a y man Hawkins would s t a r t at nose guard " W a y m a n h a s tried, hus tied, piled on and d o n e everything . this year becaus he's been over-enthusiastic. B.U this week he'll get his chance. POSITION CRUCIAL "The nose guard is crucia in defending against the Wish bone. If he does a good job they don't have you outnum bered when they go outside." Broyles said he expects Claj born to play offensive haltbac Saturday, although he dpesn know which side. He anticipate that. Earl Campbell and Roose velt Leaks will share playin lime at fullback. "They alter nated for much of the Okla homa game, bringing in th plays," he noted. Some coaches this year ha\ stated that Campbell is bette than Leaks was before his kne injury.
