: Page 6 THE BATTALION FRIDAY, OCT. 10, 1975 SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSt ill l i athletic oatmeal By TONY GALLUCCI Battalion Sports Editor Tonight I will be boarding a plane for Lubbock. Two things just occurred to me. The last time I boarded a plane, I did so in College Station, at Easterwobd Airport and headed for the windy city of Lubbock. It was an exciting trip, for I was headed for the NCAA basketball playoffs. Just the thought of playoffs is exciting and I would hope that it is an omen. Although the cagers played a tough game they lost and I hope that is not an omen. If omens travel in pairs, or if it is just that time of year, I just hope they haven’t migrated yet. After Coach Bellard has spent a frustrating week de fending an offense that didn’t need defending, he should button his collar against the wind and settle down to opening the conference. The word still circulating in Manhattan is that the Ag gies don’t measure up to Big Eight standards. Well, it has gotten to be a battle of words and I want to add my 12-cents worth. I think the Wildcats should do one of two things. Either transfer to the Ivy League since they can’t measure up to the Big Eight either or try the WFL since the Tech scout apparently thought we compared with the Pittsburgh Steelers. When the KSU squad wins the Big Eight then I’ll listen, and probably so will a lot of other people. Now I don’t mean to say the Big Eight is weak, because I can’t remember a time when six teams from one conference made the poll. But count ’em, 75 per cent of the midwest- ern conference squads measured up to the standard. KSU wasn ’t one. That leaves a lot of room for mouthing off but then again it’s easy to tell winners from losers. The Ags will come against a solid-moving offense this weekend. The defense is up to the job without a doubt. If the offense moves like last week it’ll be little trouble to pack up number five. But should overconfidence come into play, there could be trouble. I still maintain my early season confidence, no reason to lay down and die yet. I see shades of last year without the nervous TV cameras. A&M 28, Tech 7. Meanwhile, in Dallas, takes place one of the most important games this season as far as the Aggies go that doesn’t figure into conference standings. Texas and Ok lahoma battle it out for something called the Cowboy Cup. Sounds like a rodeo supporter, and the winner of this one will probably need one. The loser will inherit the factory. Always a tough one to pick, the outcome will probably determine whether or not the Sooners regain No. 1, whether the 'Horns will have a chance for it, and whether or not the Ags will move up if they win. One or the other will undoubtedly drop past the Ags except in the case of a tie. Then who knows? The Longhorns have forgotten what competition is. The Sooners know only too well what competition is and will try to eliminate any more. I think the Sooners will succeed.

The new season starts tomorrow night for the Texas Aggies as they open Southwest Conference and what has happened up to this point is merely for the polls. The sixth-ranked Aggies invade Lubbock to play the always tough Texas Tech Red Raiders. The last time the Maroon men left the South Plains with a victory was in 1967 when they went on to win the Southwest Conference champion ship. Tech has won the last three meet- ' ings in Lubbock and five of the last six.

The total series record stands at 18 Aggie wins, 14 Tech wins and seven ties. The Aggies won last year s game 28-7 before 50,620 fans and a na tional TV audience. This year s game will also be a sell-out plus but there will be no TV. The Techsans will be playing their third straight game against na tionally ranked teams. After open ing with wins over Florida State and New Mexico and they have lost their last two contests to ranked Texas and Oklahoma State. The two losses came on the road with the two wins coming in Jones Stadium. Aggie coach Emory Bellard is worried about the upcoming contest with the Raiders. “They played a real solid game against Oklahoma State (Tech lost 17-16), but it looked like they busted some plays on de fense against Texas, the Aggie boss said. The Aggies enter the game with the nation’s number-one defense. They have limited their opponents to 137.2 yards per game. They also are the nation’s number one team against the rush where they have given up only 246 yards on the ground for a 61.5 average. The Ags are third in the nation in scoring defense giving up only 21 points in four games. And just so the defense won’t hog all the national limelight, the offense is number eight in rushing with an average of 319.5 yards a game and also lead the nation in kickoff returns with a 35 yard average. And if that doesn’t give Tech enough to worry about, Tech assis tant coach Tommy Limbaugh cheered up the Raiders by saying, “A&M is better than their statistics indicate, the Pittsburgh Steelers would have a hard time moving the ball against them.” The Aggies will be in relatively good physical shape for the game with only reserve fullback Bucky Sams and halfback David Craig out of action. Tech will be without the services of cornerback Selso Ramirez, who suffered a cracked cheekbone against New Mexico will not be back but cornerback Mike Barnes who has been out for the first four games with a knee injury will be back. Tech has yet to play a game with all four of their starting secondary people healthy. Kickoff time is 7:30 p.m. and the game can be heard locally on KTAM with Jack Dale and John Smith mikeside for the Exxon radio net work. ■Jii A Diamond in your Aggie Ring ... —the final touch.
