Exhibition Game
  • BY ANY OTHER NAME an exhibition game is still an exhibition game, even if Commissioner Pete Rozelle calls it something else and even if the teams involved happen to be the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys

  • As he drove what may be the finest trotter of all time on Du Quoin's rustic mile, Stanley Dancer mulled the fact that The Hambletonian always had eluded him. At the finish those sad thoughts were gone forever

Dolls To Mexico
Hawk Baby
Horse Racing
  • By Peter Carry

    Much of the excitement at an otherwise dreary tournament was furnished by Bob Lutz, whose nickname derives from his singing—not his tennis. In the clutch, though, he had to yield to imperturbable Arthur Ashe

College Football 1968 promises to be a vintage year, one that is rich in returning stars and unusually strong teams, and one in which some famous old rivalries will wax hotter than ever. A portfolio of paintings captures the mood of such tradition-laden confrontations, and the deeds of Albie, Old 98, Doc and Glenn and the like are recalled. A more modern tradition, recruiting, is explored by Dan Jenkins through a case study of a high school quarterback's route to college. And also explored is that most exciting business, who will win, as once again our football staff selects the Top 20 teams and provides extensive scouting reports on each, plus what happened to the have-nots, a small-college review and some new faces to watch for. And, of course, all our regular features and news.
