THE DOPE: The Rams provided the pros with the bonus draft choice in 1955—Gary Glick, whose spirited efforts led Colorado A&M to its first conference title since 1927. The loss of a back of this stature leaves a tremendous hole in both offense and defense, but Coach Don Mullison has some consolation. He perked up after the spring practice performance of Wayne Walter, who has developed quickly into a very useful right halfback. By moving last year's Fullback Larry Barnes to left half, Mullison created an opening for a transfer, Jim Blackmon. This trio averages an even 200 pounds and has reasonable speed. Since three quarterbacks—topped by regulars Jerry Callahan and Poe Corn—have returned, the Ram attack may not miss Glick too much. The line will be built around Center Bob Weber.
