THE DOPE: The Redskins, under new head Coach John Pont, will have difficulty duplicating last year's undefeated season, but don't count them out yet. In Quarterback Tom Dimitroff the Redskins have one of the country's topnotch performers. Not only is he deadly on both long and short passes, he's an excellent ball handler as well and stars on defense. Along with Fullback Dean Porter, he gives Miami power up the middle. Problems, however, may crop up in the line where the team lost its starting center and guards and one tackle. Part of the slack will be taken up by 240-pound tackle Herb Fairfield, a sophomore who played service ball. Miami has dominated the small Mid-American Conference for several years, and there is no reason why this order of events should not continue this season. It looks as if Johnny Pont will have a happy time following Ara Parseghian, who has moved on to Northwestern and the Big Ten.
