Terrapins 7-Point Underdogs
I n Gator Bowl, Says Tatum
By George Huber
The hard part of Maryland’s prep
\ arations for its Gator Bowl football
itrip is over, and Coach Jim Tatum
is his usual self in claiming the un
; derdog role for his Terrapins against
'Georgia on January 1. “We've got
a good chance against them, but
' that school never has lost a bowl
game, and they should be about
j 7-point favorites.” That 7 points is
! just about the way the odds-makers
figure it.
"We've got a backfield just as good
as theirs, though, and we'll give
them a tough game,” adds Sunny
Jim.
The Terrapins finished their local
practice on Friday with a long and
tough scrimmage session under game
ing; 3-year-olds and upward; Charles
Town course.

conditions. The boys now are home
on a short Christmas vacation prior
to reassembling on Friday morning
for the flight to Jacksonville. Final
action of the squad before breaking
up Friday was to elect End George
Simler as captain for the game.
Coach Tatum indicates he'll stick
with pretty much the same lineup
as won seven, dropped two and tied
one for the Old Liners during the
regular season. The starting back
field probably*will be Vic Turyn at
quarterback, Lu Gambino and Jim
La Rue at halfbacks, and Harry
Bonk, fullback. About the only
change indicated in the line is that
Tom McHugh may go at guard in
stead of A1 Phillips. McHugh is the
Terps’ place-kicking expert.
Bad w’eather and a muddy field
have prevented Tatum from stirring
up much fancy stuff for Georgia and
apparently he plans to stick with the
same split T mixture that proved so
successful during the regular cam
paign. #
Maryland's main threat, of course,
is Halfback Lu (Twinkletoes) Gam
bino who accounted for a total of 904
yards along the ground in 10 games
this year. That made him the coun
try's second leading ground gainer
in total yards and his average of
7.23 yards a crack made his fourth
' hart in ♦ n f /Jnnavtfnant A 4 A
[the little passing he did, it made him
17th in total yards via both ground
and air this year.
Maryland has other runners,
though, such as Turyn, La Rue and
Johnny Idzik, and it’s passing at
tack, as engineered by Turyn and
Joe Tucker, is not the world's worst
j either.
i Georgia has had its emphasis on
passing this season, with Johnny
i Rauch's deadly heaving second best
I in the country to Mississippi's Char
ley Conerly. This air-minded Bull
dog fired the pigskin 18_1 times and
connected on 98 occasions for 1,352
jvards and 10 of Georgia’s 28 touch
| downs. Balancing this tossing.
I though, Is Maryland's top drawer
pass defense. The Old Liners were
jthe Nation’s third best there, per
mitting only 40 completions of 132
tossed against 'em. The average air
gain against the Terps per game was
only 44.6 yards.
