In a Memphis Commercial Appeal summary of yesterday's 52-26 DePauw triumph, White notes, "They're a big, tough group and mix the run and pass well. They picked on us a little bit. Give them credit. They made their plays and got the win. When you get behind like that there is very little room for error. They never had any slow down. They played good for 60 minutes. That made them tough to deal with."

Tiger quarterback Spud Dick, a senior, continued to rewrite the program's history book, connecting on six touchdown passes yesterday. Overall, he completedDePauw_IN.gif 25-of-36 passes for 343 yards. "I've said this 100 times and will say it again, he's a leader that happens to be a quarterback," DePauw's interim head coach Robby Long tells the newspaper.
