Virginia Defeated Saturday b a
Score of 38 to 0.
The outcome of the Virginia game
was about as it had been expected to
be, though previous to the game there
were those who thought the southern-
ers would score. But at no time was
Michigan's goal line in any great
danger of being crossed, and the final
score of 38 to 0 telts about the relative
strength of the two teams which strug-
gled at Bennett Park Saturday. Vir-
ginia presented a team quite differeni
in its makeup from that which played
against Pennsy earlier in the season.
The score by which Penn. won then
(33 to 6), while smaller than Michi-
gan's, can not be taken as a basis upon
which to compare the relative merits of
Penn. and Michigan. The consensus of
opinion among the Virginia players
seemed to be - that Pennsylvania will
win next Saturday after a hard fought
game, and in estimating the score they
said about two touchdowns to nothing
would he a statement of the relative
inerits of the two teams.
The day overhead was beautiful, the
only thing to detract from its being
perfect was the high wind which pre-
vailed and made the shady places veri-
table ice boxes. The field was soft
from the rain and snow of the dcay be-
fore, but all surface water had been
drained off, and it was solid enough to
permit of long runs and clever dodg-
ing. The grand stand was not crowded
by any means, but the bleachers and
side lines were. A thoroughly Michi-
gan crowd it was, such as Detroit
always produces. The one orange V

The visitors were very light all the
way through, their average weight
being 159 pounds, and they had the dis-
advantage of the long trip, but they
put up a fine game, clean and sports-
manlike in every particular. Every
man among thers is a gentleman and
played in the manner of a gentleman.
Their formation was much more open
than Michigan's, but owing to the
weight of the two lines that was the
only kind of a game they could play-to
any advantage. And that gained them
little, In one point, the most spectacu-
lar of all, they clearly outplayed Mihi-
gan. Time and again did Coleman
drive the ball'into the strong wind thats
was blowing for gains of 40 yards and
more, but when the second half
brought a change of goals and the
wind in Michigan's favor, Michigan's
almost constant possession of the ball
allowed him a single chance to punt.
This he impr6vd to the extent of 45
yards,. They were all pretty tacklers
and handled the ball neatly, though it
seemed to be their style of play in the
