Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 1973 THI LITHBRIDOE HERALD -19 Graham Kelly The last time the Saskatchewan Rough Riders and the Edmonton Eskimos did battle for the Western Conference title was in IflM. At that the Eskimos were coached by Frank Ivy and led by Jackie Johnny Bright and Normie Kwong. Over a three- game the Eskimos emerged the victors winning the righ to represent the West for the third straight year in the Grey Cup. With Don Getty at the Green and Gold dispatched the Alouettes of Montreal 50-27 to win the silver also for the third straight time. Those were the Eskimo salad days. The last 16 years have been a study in frustration for with only one Grey Cup appearance and one first place finish in all that time. When Pop Ivy departed for the St. Louis Cardinals and eventual Eagle Little has survived the Armstrong era in Edmonton. Coach Jauch has almost en- tirely replaced the personnel of aiming for a tough aggregation of football talent that would not be intimidated no matter who the opposition happened to be. His offensive featuring Charlie Lanny Willie Martin and Bob Howes averages nearly 260 pounds. They're mean and as demonstrated against the Rough Riders in the regular season finale at Clarke Stadium. It was Ray Jauch who brought in this the big bird from Turkey Neck took over the reins. They managed to squeeze by Win- nipeg in before bowing to Ottawa in the Grey Cup. Soon Keys was and Jackie Parker was traded to Toronto for an entire defen- sive backfield. Arriving in town to assume the duties of head-coach was former Win- nipeg Blue Bomber great Neil Armstrong. Although Nice Neil was very nice in fact one of the games true Mr. Armstrong was unable over several years to bring much respectability to the Edmonton football club. He finally departed at the end of the 1969 season to join his former teammate Harry Peter Bud Grant and his NFL champion Minnesota Vikings. His former Ray became the youngest head coach ever in the Cana- dian Football League. year's likely Schenley George a receiver without equal in the Western Conference. Tyrone Walls at tight end is no either. Gene Foster and Roy Bell are recent acquisitions to the northern capital. Caesar Belszar and Sam Britts have added tremendous punch in their rookie year. They complement nicely players like the great John Ed Dave Knechtal and Ron Estay. But the critical recruiting came in the most important area of quarter-backing. fwffffffffffffffy Ray Jauch went out and recruited Tom Wilkinson from the B.C. Lions and Bruce Lemmerman from the Atlanta Falcons. Tom Wilkinson and Don Jonas were part of the revolv- ing door situation in Toronto under coach Leo Cahill. When Leo the Lip reached below the border and plucked off Miami draftee Joe Theismann and Detroit Lion Greg the writing was on the wall for Jonas and Wilkinson. Outcast Jonas went.on to .win the Schenley Award due to his ef- forts in of Wilkinson ended up in Edmonton. Both quarterbacks are cocky and confident. Bruce Lemmerman is the more talented of the especially when you consider the passing game. But Wilkie is a lot tougher than a really not that bad a either. When I asked Coach Jauch if he would take Wilkinson out if the ground game was and insert the he necessarily. Tommy's a real good passer. He can throw especially the screen and the 'sideline Wilkinson leads by his toughness. If Bill Baker storms in and clouts him in the Wilkie will just get defiant and come back for more. He seems to light a real fire under the Eskimos. Lemmerman is rather a cold type of person whom the players don't exactly even if they do admire him. Saskatchewan would rather face Lemmerman. Says Coach John think that Wilkinson sparks them more than Lemmerman would. He really knows how to hurt us with screens and that short stuff. We're going to have to play heads-up football or he's going to hurt Regardless of the admiration that Coach Ray Jauch has for you should expect Wilkie to start but be lifted if the ground game falters. Lemmerman is definitely the better passer of the two and will take over if the Rough Rider defense finds a way to stop Roy Bell and company. Looking ahead to Sunday's finale in injuries should not be too much of a factor. Tom Campana is listed as a doubtful starter because of a knee the same in the case of defensive stand- out Ted Provost. For Edmon- Gerry from the University of Alberta lias been placed on a five-day trial in hopes of replacing Canadian quarterback Dave Syme who was operated on recently for knee problems. Charlie Edmonton's premier offensive tackle is back in the after missing three weeks due to an injured knee. Outstanding running back Gene Foster is a doubtful even though he has been working out in practice. With Foster back in the the Edmonton running game should be even stronger than regardless of the fine play of Calvin Harrell. Coach John Payne feels that Saskatchewan must stop the running attack. stop Roy Bell's and shut off those screen passes. We also have to play our kind of defense. Double-teaming Baker really frustrated our defense the last time. We tended to gamble too much on defense which is just what they wanted us to do. We won't do that this time Coach Jauch tended to dis- count past performances. went to Regina and mov- ed the ball well but didn't win. They came up here and ran and passed on us all day and they didn't win. As far as the final game of the season is the Rough Riders didn't play that badly. We got a couple of passes on them and .hen they had to play catch- ip football. But they're a tremendous football Coach Payne doesn't agree with his rival's assessment of the last encounter between his two teams. guys are really embarrassed at how badly they played. They look- ed at the films and were humiliated. They want to prove something on Sunday. I think they'll be pretty aggressive this time Both coaches tended to dis- miss the weather as much of a or an advantage for anyone. Saskatchewan over Edmon- and Ottawa over Montreal.
