What would be a pattern with-
out an exception. And happily for
Michigan. Dave Porter completely
shattered the tradition, leaving
four losers in his path to the na-
tional heavyweight crown.
Two differences were evident to
Bay between the Porter of the
Big Ten tournament and -the Por-
ter of the Nationals. "He was in
better physical condition for the
Nationals. He worked out pretty
'hard, and we had him run the
steps at the Assembly Hall."
'The first words he said when
he came off the mat from the .
matches against Lewis and Smith
were. 'Thank God for those steps'."
"Second, there was a lot of
pressure on him at the Big Tens
that wasn't on him in the Na-
tionals. At the Big Ten tourney,
people didn't give Smith credit
for being a good wrestler. They
figured his being pinned for a
fluke. But in the Nationals the
pressure was on Smith, who was
seeded ahead of Porter."
With the NCAA tournament,
the college careers of Stehman,
Wayne Hanson, Waterman, and
Porter ended. The prospect of

Couldn't Make It
Henson had to escape to get a
point, and probably the win, to
keep Willingan from getting a
minute's riding time and the vic-
tory. But he couldn't quite work
the maneuver and lost.
Then Waterman, "who wrestled
one heck of a match outsiderof
his weight class, and did a great
job," according to Assistant Coach
Rick Bay, was also edged by a
riding point, 5-4.
Hudson's match was hardly as

Before he became ill half-way

McGuire from Oklahoma, who

That left three down and four

Rubin began very promisingly,

Bill DeSario and was ahead by
two, 6-4, with less than a minute
left, when the match began to
eollownthe previously established
pattern.
DeSario gained a takedown and
a predicament for, according to
Bay, "four questionable points"
and the victory. "Rubin could
have been right in the finals,"
notes Bay.
If Rubin's loss was hard to be-
lieve, Stehman's was absolutely
amazing.
He had won 9-5, which moved
him up against Dave Wiendl of
