Coach Gene Murphy of Cal State Fullerton says now that he made a mistake Saturday by not giving Mike Pringle a chance to break the national single-game rushing record. But Fullerton officials found another mistake Monday--a five-yard statistician's error that, when corrected, gave Pringle a share of the record anyway.

There were those in the crowd who knew, and they yelled at Gene Murphy, uncertain whether he knew. First they yelled to inform him, then to convince him. Finally, some jeered. They chanted Mike Pringle's name. They wanted him back in the game. He had 352 yards rushing, six short of setting the National Collegiate Athletic Assn. single-game record, and he was on the sidelines. He stayed there. The Titan coach knew full well how far Pringle was from the record.

Mike Pringle could hardly get his pads straightened and his chin strap tightened Saturday before Cal State Fullerton gave him the ball time and again. A week ago, Fullerton's offensive line didn't open many holes, and Pringle didn't find many of the ones they did open in a loss to Utah State. But against the University of the Pacific Saturday, the holes were plentiful and Pringle didn't let many go to waste.

A week ago, Cal State Fullerton's offensive line didn't open many holes, and Mike Pringle didn't find many of the ones they did. Fullerton had 29 yards rushing and a loss to winless Utah State in spite of a 481-yard passing performance by Dan Speltz. Against Pacific Saturday, the holes were plentiful, and Pringle didn't let many go wasted, gaining 242 yards rushing in Fullerton's 35-26 Big West Conference victory in front of 7,127 in Amos Alonzo Stagg Memorial Stadium.

Mike Pringle had the winning numbers Saturday, including the one on the back of his jersey. Pringle's 213 all-purpose yards in Cal State Fullerton's 34-20 victory over Nevada Las Vegas moved him back to first in the nation in that category, although his per-game average dropped five yards to 234.8. But his numbers really came up later--in the California Lottery.

Mike Pringle has goals, but he keeps them to himself. They are the sort he can think about on Sundays while soaking in a tub, coaxing away the aches left over from Cal State Fullerton's football games on Saturdays. Sometimes he thinks about what he heard from a teammate at practice the previous week, and then read in the newspapers and heard on TV. Pringle, a former Kennedy High player, was leading the nation in all-purpose running, the statistical category led last season by Barry Sanders.

Mike Pringle was accepting congratulations Monday. He had just been named the Big West Conference offensive player of the week, two days after running for 164 yards and three touchdowns in Cal State Fullerton's 27-20 victory over Cal State Northridge. It is customary, even politically wise, for a running back to thank his offensive line in such situations. Forgive Pringle if he wasn't effusive.
