but he was in Ames Iowa at the time. So I went to the 1972 press guide that recapped the 1971 games.
Under the Houston game it said this: "The Devil offense, its passing game hampered by a shoulder separation suffered by quarterback Dan White, was stymied until 5:59 of the second quarter when fullback Brent McClanahan plunged over from the three and ASU was back in the contest 10-7."
The next game was Utah and we find this statement: "It was not all happiness as just before the half, quarterback Dan White suffered a a muscle injury to the same shoulder he had separated and was ruled out for the next three and a half games." He was replaced not by Hurst but by Dan Brown, a JC transfer.
The next game was UTEP and the write up of that game said that Grady Hurst got his first action of the year.
Danny White did make his return for the New Mexico game and threw six touchdown passes. Interestingly, the QB that threw the seventh ASU touchdown pass was Notre Dame transfer QB Jim Brady, who had signed with Notre Dame after graduation from Coronado High School.
And Grady Hurst did quit the team. As I remember several members of the team quit in protest concerning the BYU game. I seem to remember him being one of those but I am not sure. I do remember he was not happy either concerning the Houston start or the New Mexico start.
Some of these things I remember like it was last year, but last year draws a blank. Getting old SUCKS!
