In Debut Tomorrow | At 8:00 tomorrow night the 14th edition of Coach Bill Murray's Duke Football Team will take the field in Columbia, South Carolina. The opponent is a big and ambitious University of South Carolina squad. Although there is an optimistic outlook in Blue Devil Land that a successful season is in the works, the Gamecocks are not a team to be taken lightly. S. C. SQUAD Last season's South Carolina squad sported a disappointing 1-8-1 record. Yet often their losses were close, due mainly to the mistakes of inexperience. Six South Carolina fumbles helped the Devils win by a 22-14 score last fall. Marv Bass' crew later lost to Wake Forest by one point, to Clemson by four, to Carolina by seven and to Maryland by eight. The added year of experience could well transform this team from a cellar dweller to a league leader. The Gamecocks have almost always proven to be tough for Duke. In 1961, a late touchdown and the ensuing extra point gave the Devils a come-from-behind 7-6 victory. A similar battle is foreseen this year. South Carolina is pointing for this game. They want to get off on the right foot toward their march to a successful season. OPTIMISM HIGH Here optimism is the key word. A fine schedule, a large number of experienced performers, an explosive backfield and an improved defense are some reasons for the smiling outlook. Two members of the 1957 Orange Bowl team have been added as coaches. Former all- American and pro guard Mike McGee is an assistant line coach. Hal McElhaney is tutoring the linebackers. The line is larger and deeper than in past seasons. Increased practice stress on defense should have beneficial effects. Offensively the Devils will again be dangerous. The threat of a touchdown will always be imminent wherever Duke has the pigskin. "FINE TEAM" Coach Murray is looking forward to the start of the season. "I think we have the nucleus to have a fine team," reports the wily mentor. "The potential of the squad is unlimited. Tomorrow night at 8:00 we will begin to learn what strides will be made toward fulfilling this potential." For a position by position analysis of both Duke and South Carolina, see "Time Out."
