NO HANDSTANDS BY PARSEGHIAN
If you think Ara Parseghian was doing handstands in jubilation after the game, you are wrong. He looked exactly as he had beforehand—serious, alert, intense. He bit into a big red apple and said, "This is the type of game you get every so often. Everything goes right for you and everything wrong for them. Every time they made a mistake—bang, we took advantage of it."
In the somber Oklahoma dressing room Bud Wilkinson was composed. He even flashed his old disarming smile a time or two. He "wouldn't even want to make a guess" as to the possible effect of the food poisoning.
"They just beat us real badly and that's all you can say," he said.
Asked if the food poisoning had hurt his play, Brewster Hobby said: "Naw. We just got our tails beat."
Luckily for Wilkinson & Co. they left Evanston Saturday afternoon. That night a real storm blew in, knocked over trees and injured 14 people. With the kind of week it had been, the Sooners no doubt would have been dodging those elms if they had been in the vicinity.
