Holtz wary of winless Owls’
state of mind this weekend
United Press International
Arkansas coach Lou Holtz said
preparations for Saturday’s
clash with winless Rice were no
different than getting ready for
any other opponent.
“It hasn’t been different than
any other week,” Holtz said
Wednesday. “They’re not an 0-7
team on film. On film, they’re a
pretty good football team and
they have a very good kicking

Holtz told reporters in a tele
phone conference call that his
undefeated and 5th-ranked
Razorbacks consider Rice
another important Southwest
Conference foe. Last week,
Arkansas overwhelmed Hous
ton 38-3 for its third SWC vic
Rice coach Ray Alborn said
Wednesday his team’s goal for
the season had become a simple
one — to win a football game.
The Owls, coming off a 49-7
loss to Texas A&M, travel to
Fayetteville Saturday and will
attempt an upset. Alborn said
future games scheduled were of
little concern to him now.
“I’m not looking beyond
Arkansas,” he said after being
asked about Rice taking on the
Razorbacks and SMU in con
secutive weeks. SML', which
plays A&M Saturday, currently
is undefeated and ranked 4th in
the nation.
Holtz said his team, too, was
not looking beyond Saturday’s
opponent. He said comparing is
useless because “a football team
is different one week to the
Holtz said that by die time
most teams reach November,
they either are trying to go
somewhere or are trying to
keep someone else from going
“Their players also know they
have something to achieve,”
Holtz, said, suspecting some of
the Owls may be thinking, “Let’s
go up there and do something
we can tell our grandchildren
Alborn described Arkansas as
Holtz said Rice is in a transi
tion of becoming more of a
rushing team with new starting
quarterback Doug Johnson,
who replaced Michael Calhoun,
the starter in the Owls’ first four
“Doug Johnson is probably
one of the most powerful run
ning quarterbacks we’ve faced,"
Holtz said, noting Johnson
makes up for a lack of quickness
with strong running and pas
Alborn said: “We re either
going to get better or we're
going to get worse. We re not
going to stay the same. Out foot
ball team has got to get better.”

Eastland’s weekly ‘traclf
mets’ bring 8-0 record
United Press international
The numbers sound like season totals, but the
Eastland Mavericks are far from finished with
their 1982 Texas high school football campaign.
Their record through eight undefeated games
depicts the track meet they seem to hold even
Friday. They are, simply, a storm of offense —
thunder and lightning.
The thunder is a Maverick ground game that
has rumbled to 2,543 yards this season for an
average of 318 yards per game.
The lightning is all-state quarterback |av I less
who has passed for 1,521 yards — an average of
190 yards per game — and 17 touchdowns, bring
ing hs varsity career total to 43 in three seasons.
The combination has meant a downpour of
points and a No. 1 ranking in the L’nited Press
International Class 2A high school football poll.
Through eight games, the Mavericks nave-
totaled 378 points for an average of just over 17
pet game.
Opponents have scored 26 — an average of just
over 3 per game. Eastland has engineered routs of
69-0 and 62-0.
Rodney Hess, head coach and the quarter
back's father, guides a sleek scoring mac hine —
and an experienced one.
“We don’t have just real great speed, hut we’ve
got real good football speed," I le ss said. “All 1 1 of
out starters look like ends and backs. We don’t
have any kids that are over 190. We’ve got real
good balance.
