The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta The question of No. 1 will be hotly argued January W4 THf UETHVIUDOf HlftALD -11 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Who's No. 1? Depends on who you ask. The annual New Year orgy of bowl games left the usual dispute about which is the top U.S. college football team, and even The Associated Press's final poll of football writers might not settle the question in some The poll results will be an- nounced Thursday, but "someone will have to beat us head-on to prove they're Penh State coach Joe Paterno said after his Nittany Lions beat Louisiana State 16- 9 in the Orange Bowl Tuesday night. "This is the best team I've ever coached." Paterno had no monopoly on self-esteem. "This is the greatest victory I've ever had, and the greatest for the said Woody Hayes, coach at Ohio State for 23 years, after his Buckeyes trounced Southern California 42-21 in the Rose Bowl Tues- day afternoon. And Ara Parseghian of Notre Dame said after the Fighting Irish took a 24-23 thriller from Alabama in the Sugar Bowl New Year's Eve: "I definitely feel we're the national champion." In a fourth bowl game, Ne- braska broke loose from a 3-3 tie at half time to upset Texas, ranked eighth in the last regu- lar-season poll, for a 19-3 Cotton Bowl victory. Parseghian, whose team was ranked third following a 10-0 regular season, said after the Sugar Bowl game at New Orleans that Notre Dame deserves top spot in the final poll for beating Alabama, Texas line holds firm The University of Texas Longhorns came up big to stop Tony Davis of the University of Nebraska on the one-yard line Tuesday in the annual Cotton Bowl. The Texans held three more times from the one as the first half ended but their efforts were in vain as Nebraska came away with a 19-3 triumph. HONDA HONDA HONDA HONDA Winter isn't such a dumb time to buy a Perhaps you won't do much riding between now and Spring, but this is a great time for buying. Look at it this way: it costs a Honda dealer money to keep a bike in the showroom through the winter. The more bikes he can move now, the less likely he is to be getting calls from his bank manager. He'd rather talk deals with a bike buyer anytime. And deal, he will. Right now you can probably save enough to cover the cost of insurance, a new helmet and a few accessories. What about warranty? Simple. Take advantage of the Honda "Warranty Lay-Away You buy the bike now and the six-month warranty won't start until March 15. See your Honda dealer and make a deal on any of 23 bikes. Winter isn't such a dumb time to buy a Honda after all. uiMnfM HMM Ljyiwiy PIM Hi FnMMi TO March 15.1974 M SivlMi M '73 FictiiT FnHh MNM Mlliwl974MiMsii6ick In In Mill Cnmn Tnl MM A EMtam 1174 10% NKTMM UETHMKHONM CENTRE 1117 AVI. i. FHOMin CLOMD MONDAYS OWN THURSDAY AND FRIDAY UNTIL t F.M. Red Devils land share of third The Red Devils landed a share of third place in the Commercial Men's Broomball League standings by battling second place Herman's Upholstery to a 1-1 draw recently. The hard-fought tie gives the Red Devils 14 points for the season and a share of third place with Sunburst Ceramics and the Lethbridge Hotel. Walter Duda fired in the lone Herman's goal while Rudy Fleischhauer replied for the Devils. Pleischhauer's marker broke Herman's net- minder Vic Willms' long shutout streak which last for 493 consecutives minutes. Meanwhile Sunburst Ceramics trounced Ace Building 5-0 behind Tom Greenway's two-goal perfor- mance. Jerry Veres, Eugene Yamada and Bill Ressler also tallied against Ace Building, who were early called Piorino Rovers. Tom Beresnak rifled in a hat-trick and led league leading Welterlich to a con- vincing 5-0 win over the Lethbridge Correctional In stitute Mavericks. John Vaselenak and Nick Denecky chipped in with a goal apiece for the winners. Two goals from Butch Lee propelled the Fire Depart- ment to a 4-1 victory over the Knight Clubbers and their third decision of the season. Dave Lysak- and Tom Boychuk aided with solo ef- forts while Lloyd Mercer handled the scoring for the Clubbers. Lethbridge Hotel received a two-goal outing from Alvin Ttett to dwnp Local M. Tex Wieoe scored three uviwi and carrico 9ovtnern Signs to a 4-1 decision ovtr Jaycrw; ranked first on its regular season. The winning margin for Notre, Dame was a combina- tion of a missed extra point by Alabama's Brad Davis with to play and a successful 19-yard field goal by Notre Dame's Bob Thomas with 4 26 to go. The lead changed hands six times in the thriller. The out- come was 'in doubt until the closing seconds when Notre Dame, backed to its' own goal by a 69-yard punt by Alabama's Greg Gantt, came up with a daring 35-yard pass from Tom Clements to Robin Weber for a first down: and was able to run out the clock. "I would have bet my life we Were going to win after we had them back against the goal said Alabama coach Bear Bryant. "I don't feel like we lost, rather that time ran out on us." Ohio State jot three touch- downs in the Pasadena, Calif., classic, froni freshman fullback Pete Johnson and 148 yards rushing, including a 47- yard touchdown, by Archie Griffin. But it was the surpris- ing passing of quarterback Cornelius Greene which prov- ed decisive. The performance brought an accolade from losing coach John McKay. "They are better than Oklahoma and Notre said McKay, whose Trojans tied Oklahoma and lost to Notre Dame in the regular season. The Trojans .led 21-20 in the third quarter until Neal Colzie broke loose on a 56-yard punt return to the Southern Cal nine, and Greene ran it in from the one. Two, long plays in the second quarter provided unbeaten Penn State with its 12th vic- tory of the year at Miami. Flanker Chuck Herd made a spectacular one-handed grab of a pass from Tom Shuman and raced into the end zone on a 72-yard scoring play, then Gary Hayman returned a punt 36 yards to the Louisiana State 26 to set up the Nittany Lions' other touchdown, a one-yard plunge by John Cappelletti. Cappelletti, the Heisman Trophy winner, was limited to 50 yards on 26 carries. A quarterback who ex- pected to spend the day on the bench proved to he the hero for Nebraska at Dallas. Steve .Runty took over for Dave Humm at halftime and injected -some spark into the Nebraska attack, leading the Cqrnhuskers to a pair of third- period touchdowns against Texas. "I wasn't expecting to said Runty. "Coach told me I would just before the second half started." In earlier bowl action, Geor- gia edged Maryland 17-16 in the Peach Bowl Friday night. On Saturday, Houston trounc- ed Tulane 47-7 hi the Astro- Bluebonnet Bowl, Texas Tech tripped Tennessee 28-19 in the Gator Bowl and Missouri de- feated Auburn 34-17 in the Sun Bowl. Also on Saturday, the East defeated the West 25-7 in the Shrine Bowl. Theismann didn't call TORONTO (CP) The New Year's Day deadline on a contract offer came and went without Joe Theismann con- tacting Toronto Argonauts, and "there will not be an ex- says general manager John Barrow. Does that mean the quarter- back, former winner of the Heisman Trophy as the top U.S. college player, won't be back for a fourth season with the Canadian Football League team? "It does not mean that at Barrow said. "It merely means we have lived up to our contractual obligations. We have presented Joe with a con- tract for 1974. "Having not heard from Joe, we will proceed to recruit quarterbacks. We have two U.S. college quarterbacks on our negotiations list."
