And may the bird of paradise place a wreath upon the
Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
You remember that team, don't you?
That's the team that was rated No. 1 four weeks ago
before they started playing varsity caliber teams.
That's the team that, despite narrow three-point victories
over Georgia Tech and Louisiana State, still received several
first place votes from "fans" on the Associated Press voting
That's the team that overlooked an Orange Bowl date with
Nebraska for fear that sports writers would look down on them
for playing a team Eke Nebraska.
That's the team that selected a Cotton Bowl bid for a
rematch with Texas in what was supposed to be a shootout
for the best team in the land.
And that's the team that was dumped by Southern California
38-28 in muddy Los Angeles Saturday afternoon.
But the Irish are still sixth in the AP pott. And if they
win their first game next season they'll probably be rated
No. 1 again.
Three cheers for tradition. Three cheers for Knute Rockne
and a football symbol.
And how about a white handkerchief for Ara Parseghian
and his Notre Dame Fought Irish.
Louisiana State top choice?
Louisiana State, offered a tentative bid from the Orange
Bowl, still appers to be the top candidate to meet Nebraska
In Miami New Years night
The Orange Bowl committee said an official bid would
be submitted .if LSU wins its final two games. The Bengals
dumped Tulaneiby 12 points Saturday, but dropped to eighth
in the Associated Press polL
And the Bengals must play Mississippi this Saturday.
Even if LSU should defeat Mississippi, that Isn't concrete
evidence that the Orange Bowl will hold to its word of inviting
Texas and Arkansas, which also clash Saturday, are the
only two bowl-eligible team rated above LSU. Texas is No.
1 and Arkansas holds down the number four spot.
The loser of this game is also a prime candidate. And
if the two teams tie, Arkansas would go to the Cotton Bowl
because Texas went last year. That would leave the still un
defeated Longhorns eligible for the Orange Bowl.
And how could the Miami classic turn down such an offer.
A Nebraska-Texas clash would match two undefeated teams
which hold the longest winning streaks in the nation.
SO Louisiana State. Whiph Was antlhhmt fmm rmct noonn
action last season after waiting, may find Itself in the same
situation again this year.
Moore still leaves mark
When Missouri's Joe Moore, left arm dangling limply,
jogged off the AstroTurf in the opening quarter against Nebraska,
Dan Devine's involvement with his first losing season as a
head coach was somewhat pre-ordained.
It was only one of several misfortunes that led to a dismal
season for the defending co-champions.
At any rate, shoulder separation blurred Moore's sharp
all-American profile, going into the fifth game against the
Cornhuskers. Without him, the Tigers won only two of their
final six games.
But despite playing only half the season, Moore's statistics
stood out boldly in the final 1970 accounting. He still tied
Missouri fullback James Harrison for the most carries (127)
and finished as the teams No. 1 rusher and scorer.
Joe also lagged a new Mlzsou career rushing record of
But college football Is over for Joe Moore. He's uncommitted
at present to professional football. And professional football
is uncommitted to Joe Moore.
But one thing is for sure, bell still have to go down
