THE DOPE: Clemson's Tiger is the cat Duke and Maryland don't want to let out of the bag this year. The Tigers are a mature, experienced ball club at every position. Coach Frank Howard Says smugly: "I'm pretty well satisfied with the looks of our first team. We have a letterman at each position on the starting eleven...[and] a good chance of slipping into the Orange Bowl...." The second-and third-string teams are made up almost entirely of juniors and sophomores, but Howard expects to play them with regularity, hoping "they won't make too many mistakes." Weakest spots are at quarterback and end, where depth is the main problem. Watch Halfback Joel Wells; he is being touted as Atlantic Coast Conference back of the year, and not without reason.
