The University of New Mexico is offering the usual variety of noncredit evening courses this fall, but a new one is "spectator football." And while most courses, ranging from "adobe building" to "woodworking," cost $35 or more, this one is being introduced at a loss-leader price of $25. What's more, ladies can bring their husbands for only $10 extra. Or vice versa.
Bill Weeks, former head coach of the UNM Lobos, says he will approach the course "as if the students know nothing." He will begin with the various positions ("You be the halfback, Mrs. Pinkley") and walk the students through the various plays. Such arcane topics as onside kicks and Howard Cosell will be explained later.
