The curtain went down on all
practice sessions at the University
of Missouri this week, as Coach
Don Faurot sought .to tune up his
sluggish defense prior to Iowa
State's invasion Saturday.
The Tigers, who've managed
a lone touchdown in recent
losses to S.M.U. and Oklahoma
A&M, were due for a thorough
re-check of offensive funda
mentals away from the public
eye. Most galling to Bossman
Faurot has been his club's bung
ling of frequent scoring chances
inside the enemy 20.
"All of a sudden we Just plain
lack confidence in our ability to
move the ball, either from the
Split T or Spread," is the Faurot
explanation. "Our line blocking
has not been sharp, and we've
been no threat as a passing team."
Truth of the later observation
was never more apparent than at
Stillwater last week. Oklahoma
Aggie defenders made off with
seven of Mizzou's tosses, tying the
low ebb in efficiency reached by
Tiger aerialists who pitched a
like number into the mitts of Kan
sas State's secondary last year.
So, this week's 45th Missouri
Iowa State tangle, originally
heralded as a Rich Mann-Tony
Scardino air deul, may Instead
be a battle of Infantry. Mann,
now No. 3 among Big Seven
passers, has batted .500 with 31
hits in 62 pegs for 329 yards
but has had seven intercepted.
Against Colorado Saturday, it
was Bill Plantan, second-string
quarterback, who led ISCs two
touchdown charge in the final
Scardino, meanwhile, has not
been the marksman of a year ago.
The little Kansas Citian leads the
loop in aerial, gains with 447
yards, but his completion average
(27 for 76) is anemic, and he's
planted six in opposing laps.
This means that Mizzon will
probably count heavily on its
overland crew Bill Rowekamp,
Nick Carras and Vie Eaton for
its basic yardage. Hook, oper
ating at quarterback on the
keep-pass option in both the
Spread and Split T, is currently
leading all Tiger ground gainers
with 300 net yards in 59 stabs.
Big overland gainers for the
Cyclones have been Stan Cozzi,
Dick Cherpinsky and Frank Con
giardo. Should Coach Abe Stuber
elect to remain on the ground, the
