It sure didn't seem like a Disneyland Pigskin Classic for Texas A&M quarterback Jeff Granger. For the better part of three quarters Wednesday night against Stanford he was just plain awful. Jeff Granger? How about Jeff Grounder? His passes went high, low and everywhere in between. Everywhere, it seemed, but into his receivers' hands. Nothing much seemed to work for the Texas A&M offense and midway through the third quarter Aggie Coach R.C. Slocum decided he'd better go to the bullpen.

The night Jeff Granger pitched against the Cubans in Havana, there were 35,000 fans, including Fidel Castro and dozens of soldiers, gathered at Estadio Latinoamericano. Unfazed, Granger came out of the bullpen to strike out six in two innings. Days later, in the Metrodome in Minneapolis, Granger pitched another inning of shutout relief against the Cubans. But Granger didn't earn a spot on the U.S. Olympic team. After a game in Buffalo, N.Y., in early July, Ron Fraser, the U.S. coach, cut him.

The triumphant return of Bill Walsh was slowly, painfully on its way to becoming a reality when that other coach, R.C. . . . what's his name. . . . Slocum made the real genius move of Wednesday night's Disneyland Pigskin Classic. Down 7-0 and going nowhere fast, the Texas A&M coach decided to pull sophomore quarterback Jeff Granger midway through the third quarter and replace him with freshman Correy Pullig. Smart guy, that Slocum.

Quarterback Jeff Granger said he will return to the Texas A&M football team because he couldn't bear to watch the team play without being a part of it. Granger quit the Aggie football team in January to concentrate on making the U.S. Olympic baseball team. The left-handed pitcher was cut from the team on July 10. Granger, a sophomore, backed up Bucky Richardson last season.
