New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 29, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas No changes planned for Arkansas: Break Hogs to throw 'Bone at the Bulldogs Continued from Page 7 MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Arkansas has an op portunitv to silence Razorback critics and end its season on a positive note tonight against No 15 Georgia in the 29th Liberty Bowl Classic A victory would not only give the Razorbacks. now 9 3, a victory over a ranked team, but would make Coach Ken Hatfield's squad only the third in school history to win more than 28 games over a three year period Despite his success. Hatfield, who has a 35-12 I record in four years at Arkansas and is 28-8 during the past three seasons, has come under fire from Razorback supporters \rkansas boosters have expressed dissatisfac tion with the lack of a passing attack and the failure of the squad to challenge for the national championship this season Hatfield forsaw little if any change in his strategy for the 7 pm CST battle with the Bulldogs. 8-3. "We re still going to run.” Hatfield said So if people think the fullback isn t going to get the ball, then they've got another think coming " The game also offers Georgia Coach Vince Dooley the opportunity to settle a personal score against the Razorbacks. who are 2-0 in bowl mat chups against the Bulldogs "My memories of Arkansas are not good at all." said Dooley, whose Southeastern Conference Bulldogs dropped a 16-2 verdict to the Razorbacks in the 1969 Sugar Bowl and lost a 31 IO game to Arkansas in the 1976 Cotton Bow l ■ Beating Arkansas would make my dreams pretty pleasant. I d hate to get run over by Hogs three times in a row " said Doolev who is completing his 24th year at Georgia lf the Bulldogs are to w in. they must find a wax to solve Hatfield’s ground gobbling w ishbone of fetise. which ran for 3.196 yards during the regular season "The wishbone is one basic factor that continues to trouble us." Dooley said "Our defense has not done well against any type of wishbone offense That is the one thing that is a very. very big negative from our point of view The prime target for the Bulldog defense is Arkansas halfback James Rouse only the third Razorback to rush for more than HHH) yards (lur mg a season Rouse gained 1,004 yards on 182 carries and scored 17 touchdowns this season His 102 points are the second highest season total ever posted by a Razorback Georgia also will have to contend with Arkansas quarterback Greg Thomas, who ranks loth on the school's career total offense list with 3,154 yards "Their wishbone revolves around Rouse and Thomas." Dooley said Overall Arkansas is a very fine and talented football team and they will give us headaches Both teams use the running game as their primary weapon but the Bulldogs may be forced to the air by an Arkansas detense that ranks sixth in the nation against the rush Still. Hatfield said he is very aware of the mini mg talents ot Georgia quarterback James Jackson and tailbacks Cars Tate and Rodney Hampton 'Jackson has taken a lot ot snaps and made a lot of plus yardage tor Georgia Hatfield said Successful ending raises Cowboy hopes IRVING iAP» The Dallas Cowboys restored some pride by winning their last two games of the season but it cost them a better draft position and a weaker schedule in 1988 The Cowboys played a holiday season spoiler by knocking the Los Angeles Rams and the st Louis Cardinals out of the NFL playoffs in the same w eek Dallas finished tile season with a 7-8 record by beating the Rams in the Monday Night game last week and follow mg with a 21 16 victory over St Louis on Sunday. The win oxer the Cardinals was the Cowboys first reason closing victory since 198n Dallas Coach lorn Landry said Monday that winning the last two games was worth losing the weaker .schedule and higher draft selection that would have accompanied a lower finish "For us to win the last two games was very significant," Landry said Our guys competed until the final tick of the clock I d have to say we've got a little character working on this team or they wouldn't have done it Next year Dallas must play Chicago. New Orleans and Min nesota. all of whom are playoff teams besides the regular NFC East calendar The Cowboys also get AFC Central teams Houston Pittsburgh Cleveland and Cincinnati Dallas will In* drafting lith in the first round, earliest first pick not ac quired via trade since the AFL NFL merger in 1967 Landry said his New Year's resolu tion would In* for the Cowboys to get over 500 "Get me over 5oo and I'm in business.
