Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 31, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, December 31, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 13 YOU'VE GOT MORE TAIKNT IN �TEK LITTLE FINGERTHAMSHE, AS IN 'ER WHOLE BObV Indians plan to run against Michigan team By THE CANADIAN PRESS Stanford will have to run as well as pass to upset Michigan in Saturday's 58th Rose Bowl ganie, says Stanford coach John Ralston. How will the pass-minded Indians run against Michigan Wolverines, a team nobody ran effectively against in the past season? "The power of positive thinking," answers Ralston. And a sportswriter from the Midwest asked jokingly: "How much will positive thinking play? "Quite a bit," says Ralston, seriously. "If you don't believe .you can, you never will." Stanford, the Pacific-eight champion with an 8-3 record, upset Ohio State 27-17 in the last Rose Bowl and now meets another undefeated Big Ten king in 11-0 Michigan. The Rose Bowl clash at Pasadena, Calif., is one of three major college football games Saturday while two others are on tap for tonight. The two matches tonight see Colorado and Houston in the Astro-Blue Bonnet Bowl at Houston and Georgia against North Carolina in the Gator Bowl at Jacksonville, Fla. PLAY SATURDAY The other Saturday games are the Cotton Bowl at Dallas with Penn State facing Texas, the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans with Oklahoma against Auburn and the Orange Bowl in Miami with Nebraska vs. Alabama. "We'd like to think we can do it again," Ralston said of his squad's Rose Bowl victory. Michigan is a 12y2-point favorite in this game. In the Astro-Bluebonnet 'clash tonight, both seventh-ranked Colorado and 15th-ranked Houston carry 9-2 season records. ??????????? ? ? ? * 290 ? ? ? ? ? ? ?'? ? *> 9 9 9 9 Two of the nation's leading rushers-sophomore Charley Davis of Colorado and senior Robert Newhouse for the Cougars, provide the main thrust of the two teams' of fences. In the Gator Bowl, the Georgia Bulldogs are 10-point favorites over the North Carolina Tar Heels. Sixth-ranked George, 10-1, re lies on dazzling runner Andy Johnson at quarterback and Mini-rodeo at Cardston Jimmy Gladstone and Lynn Jensen will celebrate the opening of their J. L. Stables at Cardston with the presentation of a mini-rodeo featuring calf roping amd steer wrestling.

North Carolina, 9-2 in the Atlantic Coast Conference, has running backs Lewis Jolley who ran for 712 yards this season and Canadian George Hamilin who rushed for 594. Hamilin, from Ottawa, is a 6-foot-1, 205-pound fullback. In the New Orleans Sugar Bowl, both Oklahoma and Auburn carry 9-1 season records. The Orange Bowl sees Alabama, 10-0, looking for its third bowl victory over Nebraska, also 1-0 this season. Alabama won 39-28 in the 1966 Orange Bowl and 34-7 in the 1967 Sugar Bowl. Still, Nebraska was rated a six-point favorite to beat Alabama this time around and Alabama coach Paul (Bear) Bryant commented: "Coaching probably makes Nebraska a six-point favorite." Bryant has killed us with kindness before," said Nebraska coach Bob Devaney. "If there's any coaching superiority in our meetings with Alabama, it hasn't been evident in the past." Texas, 7-2, goes against unbeaten 10-game winner Penn State in the Dallas Cotton Bowl, One-sided win ATLANTA,' Ga. (AP) - Mississippi's sophomore quarterbacks Norris Weese and Kenny Lyons unleased a potent attack and an alert defence capitalized on numerous Georgia Tech mistakes as the Rebels trounced the Yellow Jackets 41-18 in the fourth annual Peach Bowl Thursday night. Mississippi jumped to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter and then stunned the Jackets with 28 points in the second period for a 38-6 halftime lead. The 17th-ranked Rebels scored 14 points in a minute and four seconds during the quarter, which was reminiscent of their 42-point second quarter against Mississippi State at the end of the regular season. Dolphins, Colts settle AFC title Sunday War of words left Shula a little bitter By MIKE RATHET MIAMI (AP) - Miami Dolphins began winding down preparations today for the American Conference championship game against Baltimore while coach Don Shula revealed he is still bitter about the war of words that followed his decision to leave the Colts. That bitterness is one of the factors that underscores Sunday's battle en route to the Super Bowl in a decisive third meeting between the clubs this year. "I don't want to be involved in a verbal discussion about the situation," Shula said when he Was asked about the outpouring Stan Fischler*s ,c u u i* Inside Hockey llliuiiiir iiniiiiiJiiiriiiiiLitiiiiMiiirjiuriiiiLisiiiiiTiiEiiiiiJiL.....(iiutiit iiijiiiiiiiiiitisiiiiini]ll!tllltllllllltliniltlSl\l] OESPITE all the superficial blather, profusion of press re-leases and assorted other nonsense, the fact is- that the World Hockey Association, if it does get off the ground next year, will do so without a New York franchise. By deciding to place a second team in the Metropolitan New York area (Hempstead, Long Island, one hour from Times Square), the National Hockey League has frightened the WHA out of the lucrative market that is Nassau (L.I.) County. Neil Shayne, front man for the New York WHA. group, would be foolish to buck both the immensely successful Rangers and a second NHL team; particularly since the WHA would be given the worst possible dates in Long Island and Madison Square Garden, the only available rinks. The question, then, emerges - can the WHA survive without New York? Opinions are mixed on this question. One view has it that New York, being the communications centre of the continent, is vital to a new league that needs all the media help it can get. Press releases coming out of Santa Ana, Cal-fornia, WHA headquarters, just don't have the clout of missives from New York City. On the other hand, the anti-New Yotk bloc figures that the WHA did manage to get a start - of sorts - without New York; that its president Gary Davidson and vice president Dennis Murphy, launched the WHA months before it held its first press conference on Broadway and that the overrated New York media could have been ignored with no serious after effects. More imporant, however, is the uncertainty, even to this day, as to whether the WHA is for real or a figment of Davidson and Murphy's fertile imagination. Ben Hatskin in Winnipeg, Bill Hunter in Edmonton and Scotty Munro in Calgary may think it IS for real but there remains a legion of skeptics who wonder how the WHA can get started in so short a time with a questionable bankroll and with a talent supply so terribly diluted. It is one thing to hold a press conference welcoming new franchises; but it is a more relevant thing to actually sign players, managers, coaches and publicity. men. So, the time has come for the WHA to start putting up or shutting up. The signing of Annis Stukus in Winnipeg is not quite convincing enough. Way back in October we, who attended the WHA news conference were told that teams, such as the Chicago Cou-igaws, would begin announcing the names of front office personnel and other help. But little has been heard since. The longer the wait, the wider the credibility gap and the larger the question mark surrounding the WHA. There are many in the audience who fervently hope the new league can make a go of it, especially for the sake of professional hockey's future in Canada. But these same people want to be reassured that then- faith in the WHA so far has. not been wasted and that there really is some thing to the new "major league", other than letterheads and law suits. Only some very positive moves by the WHA can lift the cloud of doubt now hovering over the new circuit. Local skaters earn crowns SOLIDARITY ... the way to peace and progress A New Year begins.

Miss Paul was the surprise leader after the compulsory figures event and narrowly defeated Kris Paulson of Calgary Glencoe in Thursday's free skating. Barbara McBride of Edmonton Jasper Place was third and Laurie Hunt of Calgary Glencoe fourth in the featured event of the competition, which concluded Thursday evening with champions being named in all divisions.

PHONE 327-1591 of words that accompanied his leaving the Baltimore coaching job to take the position with the Dolphins last year. But he admitted: "I am a little bitter at a couple of statements that were made. One thing was what was said by a couple of players who I had great respect for." Shula did not specify the players he was talking about, but one of the players who made some uncomplimentary remarks about his departure was Bubba Smith, the Colts' huge defensive end. COST COLTS CHOICE Shula, who came here at the cost of a No. 1 draft choice awarded to Baltimore by Commissioner Pete ..Rozzelle when he ruled the Dolphins had been guilty of tampering in securing his services, took a club that had a 3-10-1 record in 1969 and immediately turned it around. The Dolphins posted a 10-4 record last season while finishing second to Baltimore in the Eastern Division and then were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs. This season a 10-3-1 record brought them the Eastern title and, following their first-round victory over Kansas City, they now stand on the threshold of their first AFC championship. The Colts, meanwhile, took a Shula assistant-Don Mc-Cafferty-and won their first Super Bowl under him last year, but finished second in the East this season with a 10-4 record. They moved into the AFC championship showdown by beating Cleveland in the first round. The oddmakers have found little to choose between the teams and the record enforces that estimate. The Dolphins won the first meeting this season 17-14 at Miami on a fourth-quarter field goal by Caro Yepremian and the Colts won 14-3 at Baltimore on two long drives engineered by Johnny Unitas. TALK ABOUT TD Unitas put together one touchdown drive of 18 plays in the Colts' victory and it lias been the subject of some discussion in the days preceding the actual clash. Miami quarterback Bob Griese has said the percentages are against Unitas duplicating that performance. "The percentages begin zooming way up there after 10 plays," Griese noted. "You don't see many 18-play drives and that's because there's always the possibility of a fumble, or an interception or three plays in which you can't make 10 yards." Unitas declined to answer Griese specifically, saying: "I'm not concerned with that at all. I try to do the best I can. If it works it does, if it doesn't it doesn't." Two of the guys who made it work-running back Norm Bu-laich and Tom Matte-remain question-marks for the game, Matte with a bruised right knee and Bulaicb with a hamstring pull in his right leg. Together they gained 1,348 yards on the ground this season. The Baltimore defence, led by big Bubba, permitted only 140 points-an average of 10 a game -during the regular season. In addition, they compiled an unusual record against field goals, blocking more than they allowed. Arrayed against that defence is Shula's arsenal of weapons-all of which have become household words during the Dolphins' run toward their first title, including last Saturday's amazing 27-24 victory over Kansas City in an 82-minute, 40-second marathon. There's Griese, the quarterback who threw 19 touchdown passes during the regular season. There's Paul Warfield, his No. 1 target with an NFL-lead-ing 11 touchdowns and a 23.2 per-catch average.. And there's Larry Czonka, the hard-charging running back who gained 1,051 yards. Duane Thomas a quiet one DALLAS (CP-AP) - Mysterious Duane Thomas is the silent force in the National Football League's most powerful offence, but he and his Dallas Cowboy team-mates may have reason to worry if they barken back to a threat made a year ago. Thomas and his Cowboy run-nig mate, Calvin Hill, carry their awesome running attack into Sunday's National Conference title game with San Francisco '49ers in a rematch of the 1970 clash, won by Dallas 17-10. Thomas, who has had a running feud with the Cowboy front office, has closed himself into a tight shell. His performance on the field is above reproach. But he refuses to communicate with reporters and has left the impression he ignores his team-mates. Hill says Thomas "communicates as much as he did last year. "He talks to people he is dose to. I've talked to him and everybody on this team is his friend." THINKS DEAL BAD Thomas, on the second year of a three-year contract, feels the Cowboys shorted him moneywise. After a bitter July tirade against the management and coach Tom Landry, he has kept to himself. Hill says: "Maybe he feels a lot of things are on his mind and it's best to keep it to himself. All of us have problems." Hill says Thomas is playing on "personal pride." "He has pride in himself and contentment ... he has inner Lakers getting bored? SEATTLE (AP) - It is altogether unlikely, Jim McMillan says, that he will become bored with winning, even though the Los Angeles Lakers' string is 30 games now and is timed by months. Spencer Haywood of Seattle SuperSonics had expressed some concern about enui gently settling over McMillan and the rest of the Lakers. He had mentioned it to McMillan Thursday night as the Lakers gutted the Sonics 122-106 to continue their major-league winning streak. "Haywood asked me during the game, 'Don't you get tired of winning?" McMillan recalled. "I told him no, because we beat 'teams differently every night." This version called for Mc Millan to score 34 points, Wilt Chamberlain to pull down 24 rebounds, Jerry West tc assist on 11 baskets, and the Lakers to go off on scoring streaks of 12 and 10 straight points and a 26-9 rout when pressured by the Sonics. Even without the Lakers looking for him, McMillan scored 16 points in the first half, 12 of them in the last four minutes of the second period, including six during the Lakers' 12-point streak. His scoring helped the Lakers come from the low end of a 43-42 score to lead 56-40 at halftime. The Sonics again ran at the Lakers early in the third period with Haywood, who matched McMillan's 34, and Don Smith, who had 25 points, doing the heavy shooting. It was McMillan's scoring that kept the Scnics' at arm's distance. peace," Hill says. "A lot of us are trying to find that." The Cowboys rate solid favorites for their conference matchup with San Francifi'co which will be carried by CBC-TV starting at 11:30 a.m. MST. But '49er coach Dick Nolan, who said a year ago "We'll b� back," said Thursday: "W� can't stop now." BEAT REDSKINS His team beat Washington Redskins 24-20 last weekend to reach the title game. "We have to beat Dallas to get to the Super Bowl. That's where we all want to go." The '49ers'-starting lineup for Sunday's game will be virtually the same as those in last season's title game. The Cowboys also have made few changes. Running back Vic Washington of the '49ers is the only rookie starter on either team. He previously played with Ottawa Rough Riders and British Columbia Lions in the Canadian League. Roger Staubach is the new starting quarterback for Dallas, and one of his receivers is a ner member of the team, former San Diego Charger Lance Alworth.
