Get back to the pits from whence ye came ye breathers of uncertainty and scolders of King Emory. Your words now fade into a horselaugh because the Aggies are for real. Texas A&M proved to the world last Saturday night that there was more than just a defense on the Aggie roster. The monstrous form of an offense unchained emerged from beneath the bayou and swallowed whole the LSU Tiger. The stars were many, but the limelight should he placed mainly on those men from the unknown who are seldom recognized, seldom appreciated — the offensive line. The Aggie front wall bludgeoned and pounded paths through and around the Tiger defense. Performing an encore in the blocking department were the A&M hacks, escorting quarterback David Shipman on his many excur sions into the LSU secondary. The only item missing from the Aggie attack was a consistent passing threat. But when a team gets 390 yards on the ground and scores five touchdowns (three from more than 40 yards out), it doesn’t need to put the ball in the air. What more can he said about the A&M defense? The Maroon Maulers were like the title character in a current shark movie, devouring anything and everything. The Tigers coidd only manage a last second score on a blocked punt to avoid being goose-egged. As with the offense, the defensive front four controlled the line of scrimmage and the tempo of the game. Last year the stadium scoreboard read as the final seconds ticked off “Wait til next year." Well, next vear came and passed for the Bayou Bengals. One of the most surprising turnabouts came when the home folks began to boo their boys in the Purple and Gold. Supposedly, one Tiger player was also hit with a liquor bottle thrown from the stands. Once again the “Help Mac Pack” stickers will come out to haunt LSU Coach Charley McClendon. The A&M players showed a fire and determination that was obviously missing the week before. They jumped and yelled after each good play and raised their fists in the air at the playing of the War Hymn. The display by the Aggies deserves more than the ranking of eighth on the national polls. Several teams have been placed ahead of the Ags hut with somewhat dubious merit. The spectacle in Tiger Stadium was something all Aggies should have seen. However, much of the Twelfth Man had to stay at home because former students had purchased most of the tickets. It’s amazing what a few extra dollars can do. Oh well, at least the offense quieted the rumors about its non-existence. At least until the next fumble anyway. Campbell gets nod for offensive player By JACK KEEVER Associated Press AUSTIN, Tex. — Texas Coach Darrell Royal pays sophomore fullback Earl Campbell the ultimate compliment by hardly mentioning liis name at Royal’s weekly news conferences. It goes without saying that Campbell — the “Tyler Rose’’ — has played well. He played so well last Saturday in Texas’ 28-10 thumping of Washington that he was selected as The Associated Press’ offensive player of the week in the Southwest Conference. Campbell, 6 feet 1 and 227 pounds, pounded for 198 yards on 27 carries and three touchdowns, including a 61-yard sprint on which he dashed through the secondary without being touched. After only two games, Campbell leads the SWC in rushing with 301 yards and an average of 7.5 yards a carry even though he was a defen sive target in each game. Penalties erased a 75-yard scoring run against Colorado State Univer sity, and runs of 20 and seven yards against Washington or Campbell al ready would he over the 400-yard mark. The statistics bear out that he played well, Royal commented Monday, and a reporter asked, smil ing, “Darrell, when was the last time Campbell didn’t play well?” “He’s always going to play well, replied Royal, adding that a defense might “shut down” Campbell by concentrating on him, “but he’d still be competing, going at it. He may not get a chance to be a star, but he’s going to play well.” This man is special. JERRY H.
