" A record like that every year would suit me " . Coach Jim Tatum opined. " We heat some good teams " . Maryland led in everything but the scoring in that 13-16 N.C. State debacle before a homecoming crowd but it just wasn ' t the Terps day. Maryland ' s other loss was to Georgia but that was not unexpected. " We weren ' t ready for Georgia in a game as early as September 2 3. We weren ' t in shape and the heat killed us " . Tatum very truthfully said. (It was 92 degrees in the shade. However, the loss to Georgia cost very little pres- tige, as this situation generally was understood, but that Wolfpack jolt was a stunner. It doubtless cost Maryland a bowl bid and was more of a topic than any of the Terps notable triumphs. " Michigan State (beaten 34- " in one of the year ' s biggest upsets was our best game and that loss to N.C " . State our biggest disappointment " . Tatum con- tinued. " Our schedule wasn ' t balanced enough " . Halfback " Shoo Shoo " Shemonski set a Maryland mark of 97 points to lead the Southern ( " onference in scoring and the team compiled a rushing record of 5 ' yards in routing X ' irginia lech. Bob Ward was All-America guard with End Elmer W ingate on second team. Both were All-South and All-C onference and Ray Krouse was a second choice on these teams. Several others got all-star mention. 276
