Arkansas had second down and seven at the CSU 27. Ike Forte carried for four yards and was hit hard. The ball squirted loose. Against Oklahoma Slate, Baylor or Texas, the ball would have been bounced wrong. But this was Colorado State -- Arkansas' 1974 breather. Tight end Doug Yoder caught the ball oti the first bounce and made seven additional yards. Three plays later, Forte scored the first of his two touchdowns and the Raxorbacks were their way to a 43-9 victory. Afler losses lo Baylor anc Texas, the triumph was much- iccded. The week prior to the CSU arne, members of Arkansas' *!o. 1 offense worked against ilaycrs on the No. 2 defense and the No. 1 defense practiced against the No. 2 offense. Arkansas Coach Frank Broylcs said lie could not remember following such a practice routine in his previous 16 years at Fayetteville. "The results of the ball garni convinced us that what we did last week was right," Broyles said. INJURY DRAWBACK The obvious drawback is the possibility of an injury. "We felt we had lo take that risk lo get back to the fundamentals," he said. "We talked all week about individua battles. You're not going to win every individual battle but we ricd to leach them to come jack and win (he next one. We ricd lo make llial part of their personality." For example, Jon Rbiddlchoo- yer had not been blocked all 'all by a member of .the "B" .cam. Last week, Uhiddlehoover incd up opposite center Richard LaFargue. "LaFargue blocked him unmercifully the first lime," Broyles said. "Then, Jon came back and wanted to take his head off." Broylcs said Ihe problem is one of numbers. He said the Razozrbacks probably have 40 fewer scholarship players on campus than they did a few years ago. The scholarship limit was reduced from 50 per year to 30 per year two years ago. Broylcs said the shortage ol players meant the few lha ere available were quickly vorn down. Thai, in lurn, neant Ihe varsity players could elax and still get the job done. Bad habits result.

"You make a mistake and they score. You make another mislake and they score again and now they've ;ol you playing their game." Broyles talked last week about Colorado Slate's passing game. He was still impressed Sunday. The Rams completed 19 of 48 passes for 32D yards against the Razozrbacks. Broylcs said the Razorbacks used several different cover; ages and disguised their coverage until tht CSU quarterback began his snap count. He said that, at times, Arkansas used six defensive backs. Os obvious passing downs. Howard Sampson and Muskie Harris would replace the defensive ends. This, permitted Arkansas' swift half-' backs to cover SCU receivers running short routes. He said the game "will help us in more ways than one." YOUNG PLAYERS Broyles said that in today's football, there are so many freshmen and sophomores and "young players need for things to go right." He pointed out that All-American tackle Glen Ray Hincs played on the freshman team, was redshirted a year and then played sparingly his sophomore year before starting on two straight unbeaten teams. ' He had a lot invested in the program," Broyles said. Broylcs said Forte, who carried 20 times for 153 yards against CSU, injured his toe early in the third quarter. He also said that safety Tommy Harris suffered a head injury in the game.

Broyles said Forte "runs :ot like Bill Burnett near 5oal or on short yardage, .wists, turns, dives and pivots." Arkansas' final touchdown came on a nine-yard run by Jerry Eckwood, the much-heralded freshman who making his Razorback Eckwood only played two series and carried four times yards. Broyles said Eckwood, underwent treatment during the summer for a disc problem, still was hampered by a lack of strength in his right ankle. He said he was "very confident" Eckwood would be fully recovered soon. Salukis Make Things Easy For Indians CARBONDALE, 111.
