Post-Herald (Newspaper) - October 25, 1973, Beckley, West Virginia Plays' Needed Against Irish-McKay BECKLEY POST-HERALD, BECKLEY, W. VA THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 25, 1973 THREE: LOS ANGELES (AP) The Southern California Trojans haven't lost to Notre Dame Since 1966 because of "big plays" and they won't win Sat- urday without them, Coach John McKay said Wednesday. "Beating Notre Dame is al- Gresham Is Fifth In Pass Catching NEW YORK (AP) 0. J. Simpson is human and vulner- able after it's still go- ing to be a long time before anybody catches up with him. Despite his slim yardage- well under the distance of any of his previous games- Simpson still owns a command- ing lead in NFL rushing, ac- cording to statistics released to- day by the league.

"You cannot beat them by, say, ball control. "We will not win the game unless we go back and make; big plays...we have some ideas we're working on... "Even as big as we are, they're bigger. We can't try to slug it out with them." McKay listed examples of "big play" victories over Notre Dame, including Anthony Davis' two kickoff returns for touchdowns last year and Ede- sel Garrison's touchdown catch- es in 1971. McKay denied that he vowed never again to lose to Notre Dame after the Fighthi' Irish ropped 51-0 in 1966. "I might have mumbled that we would not get beat 51-0 again but I never make he said. "This is the biggest collegiate intersectional game of the said McKay. "It always is Since IJve been coaching here (14 eight or nine times the team that's won this game could win the national championship." The Trojans, defending na- tional champions, are ranked No. 6 nationally with a 5-0-1 record. Notre Dame, No. 8, is 5-0. "It's a great game and Glenville Team Heads Statistics BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) Glenville State's unbeaten Pio- neers hold both the total of- fense and total defense leads in statistics released this week by the West Virginia Inter- collegiate Athletic Conference. The Pioneers, 7-0 and atop the WVIAC Southern Division standings, have averaged 310.7 yards per game on offense, just ahead of West Virginia State's 306.4 yards per game average. The Pioneers have yielded an average of 160.9 yards per game. Salem ranks second in total defense, giving up 200.9 yards per contest. Glenville also leads the league in scoring, 193 points, and scoring defense, 40 points. West Virginia State is the WVIAC's top rushing club with a per game average of 275.1 yards while Fairmont State, the Northern Division leader, ranks as the best passing team with a 153.6 average. Glenville tops the rushing de- fense statistics, allowing 89.6 yards per game on the ground. Fairmont is first in pass de- fense with a yield of 61.6 yards a game. Second Guessing By Larry Farley WVC Foils D. S.; Ansted Is Picked What with the paper shortage we're having here at the Post-Herald, there won't be much time spent discussing how I took WWNR's D. S. Goodwin over the rocks in our pickin' last week's games. There wasn't really that much difference. D. S. had his troubles in the West Virginia Conference, get- ting only one of six selections right. Otherwise, he would have out-picked me. I finished with an 18-8 slate while D. S. notched a 15-11 mark. My overall mark is now 136-59 for a .697 average. Now for this-week's games, I'll take: BECKLEY OVER LOGAN Wildcats have only one win while Beckley is trying its best to reach the playoffs. It's doubtful the Eagles will make it, but there's always hope. ANSTED OVER CLARKS. NOTRE-DAME What about Ansted's win last week? Unbelievable! Highlan- ders face a stiff test here. OAK HILL OVER GREENBRIER WEST Red Devils will be looking for a big win after last week's drubbing by Beckley. Princeton Will Edge East PRINCETON OVER GREENBRIER EAST Spartans can't handle Princeton's passing attack. East is up and coming but not this week. MAN OVER GARY Should be an easy win for Tootle" Carter and his Hillbillies. RICHWOOD OVER MONTGOMERY First-year coach Fred Hill has Lumberjack fans smiling from a 6-2 record. It will improve Friday night. BAILEYSVILLE OVER TRAP HILL Mark this up as close game. Trap Hill has good running attack but Rough Riders will stop it. CHAPMANVILLE OVER CLEAR FORK A long season for the Panthers. CLAY OVER NUTTALL Another game which will be decided by less than six points. FAYETTEVILLE OVER NICHOLAS CO. What has happened to that strong offensive punch the Pirates started out with? Yes, they beat Nuttall 3342, but it still isn't back to full strength. GAULEY BRIDGE OVER VAN Travellers will nose out a close one. Sophia Streak Will End HINTON OVER SOPHIA I may be going against the grain here. Sophia has won its last three while Hinton has lost two of its last three. MULLENS OVER PETERSTOWN Pirates are in rebuilding year so Coach Jim McNeish should pick up another win here. STOCO OVER PINEVILLE "When will it ever PineviUe's Ray Woolsey is thinking. This is the third consecutive week his Minutemen have played a team ranked among the state's Double-A top ten. SHADY OVER UNION Easy victory for the Tigers. HERNDON OVER COWEN I think the Indians can win this one by 14 points. MEADOW BRIDGE OVER WALTON We won't discuss what happened to the Wildcats last week. This week they'll come back with an encouraging triumph. MARSH FORK OVER GILBERT It has been a pretty long season for Coach Bill Montgomery and his young crew. In college action I see Penn State toppling WVU, Bowling Green falling to Marshall, Bluefield State top- ping Wesleyan, West Liberty beating Concord, W. Va. State sneaking by Glenville, Waynesburg defeating Salem, Shepherd nosing Bridgewater and Georgetown tripping Tech. ___________________ MICKEY UDY Back In Ring Again Udy WiH Return Against Hickman Sophia's Mickey Udy returns to the ring Saturday night when he meets Paul "Wildman" Hickman, of Ashland, Ky., in a three round bit. The Udy-Hickman fight is one of 12 bouts scheduled at the Raleigh County Armory, begin- 8 p.m. Udy has been in the ring only once since losing a heartbreaking second round TKO to Benny Toler in May. The "Pride Of The Paratroopers" carries a 22- 3 record. Hickman enters the bout with i 23-2 slate and has never been iff his feet. The amateur card features ome of the best fighters in outhern West Virginia. 3ceana's Don Carter will meet Paul Woods, Dunbar, for the tate heavyweight cham- ionship. Other attractions will have Jeckleyan Scot Morris meeting Ashland's Jimmy McBrayer, Jutch McNeely, Mullens, will ake on Junior Smith, Glen Da- niel, and William Clay will bat- le Huntington's Bomber Blake, ust to name a few.
