Manor Welcomes Him Into Fold Eckwood Ready To Play By'GRANT 1IAI,L TIMES Sporls Editor · · B r i s o n Manor welcomed ..lorry Eckwood to the Arkansas i football team here Monday. ., Eckwood picked the most .-.rigorous Monday practice ot the fall to begin contact work, and 'his first collision came in an inside drill. Eckwood's well- · publicized back passed the acid test when Manor hit him full- ibore, without effect. A f t e r Billy Burns and Leotis .Harris followed w i t h equally .'vicious tackles, Manor hit Eck- J.wood again. This time, Jerry "had gone the wrong way and was sandwiched by Manor in "the front and quarterback Scott ;Bull in Ihe back. i' He got up slowly and bent over. Coach Frank Broyles scurried over to check out his .'prize freshman halfback, and '·was relieved to learn Eckwood _ h a d jusl nail the breath knocked ; out of hiTn. In five plays, Eckwood was back in. "He should be able fo p l a y "this week," said Broyles after 'practice. "He scrimmaged a lot today, and that should help him." · The Hazorbacks worked on fundamentals Monday, a n d ·Broyles said they would con ; linuc the suririg-praclice format -for the remainder of the season V'We have 40 fewer people on scholarship now, and it's harder to get good players working against each other," he said. "From now on, we w i l l be working the first-team offense against the second defense and he second-team offense against he first defense. There is a !reatcr risk of injuring players this way, but it will make the players work harder. "Jim Johnson (defensive line :oach) said that at Oklahoma, heir third and fourth teams were sometimes as g o o d as he teams they saw on Saturday. But one B team hasn't )een able to simulate the teams we've played. "So we'll have Lee King jlocking Manor, and other jffensive starters blocking Jon Xhiddlehoover a n d Leotis Harris. That's the way we prac- ;iced in the spring--best against best." Broyles announced several major lineup changes Monday Harvey Hampton has been moved from offensive guard to d e f e n s i v e tackle, Mickey Dillingsley from tight end to defensive end. Chuck McKinuey from defensive tackle to tight end and Wayman Hawkins from nose guard back to fullback. "Wayman said he was jusl lost in the line," said Broyles "He knows he won't play much at fullback this year, but he can start out there next year.

The Buckeyes received 50 first-place votes and 1,196 of a possible 1,210 points from a nationwide panel of sports writers and :iced Monday. "I couldn't pelleve it," said Broyles. "At 'irst, I thought he'd broken his arm." Asked about Colorado State, Broyles said, "If you want to see something, come over and look at 'he film of them. They're the leading passing team in the nation. "They tiave a receiver named Willie Miller who is averaging 20 yards a catch. He's a 27- year-old former Green Beret in V i e t n a m . T h e quarterback (Mark Driscall) is as g o o d a passer as we've seen. GOOD BACKS "Ron Harris is a great runner, and they have a 238- pound fullback (Kim Jones) to go with him. Colorado Slate lost two games by missing field goals at the end." The Rams, 2-3-1, tied a game 'when they missed an extra point with no time left on the clock. The extra-point try came from 35 yards out. because the whole team poured into the end zone to -mob Miller after he caught the tying touchdown pass against Brigham Young. So Colorado State could be 5-1. Still, Rhiddlehoover is glad to be facing a passing team again! "We played our best game against USC." said the tackle-turned-nose guard. "I like to rush the passer. "We know we've got the ability to beat anyone. We've just killed ourselves in three games with defensive breakdowns. A lot of times, it's just been a mistake by one player. That's what we've got to overcome. broadcasters. Runner-up Oklahoma drubbed Colorado 49-14 and picked up eight first-place ballots and 1,082 points.
