they are fantastically fast and

fewer points than Michigan State
did last year.
On the offense, Bryant kicked
super-star quarterback Kenny Sta-

even better behind him, and Joe
Kelly might be the man. There is

Hazardous

Miami looks so good that the
main reason they can't be rated
higher is they play Notre Dame
November 24. Get your tickets now.
Texas is the pick to make the
big comeback and win the South-
west Conference title easily. If
quarterback Bill Bradley stays
healthy (the original famous last
words), almost the same team that
smeared Mississippi 19-0 in the
Bluebonnet Bowl is back, ready to
regain the Longhorn's place in
the national polls.
Rather Fight Than Switch
Tennessee, if it can get by Mis-
sissippi, would be in a position to
switch places with Alabama if it
can knock off the Crimson Tide,
as it should have little trouble
with the rest of their schedule.
Quarterback Dewey Warren, the
swamp rat, heads what for Ten-
nessee must be the best offense
it has seen in years, although the
usually great defense is abnor-
mally weak.
All right, where's Michigan
State? Ranking the Spartans
"only" number six happens sim-
ply because the Spartans must
start off with a new defensive
line against Houston, last year
number two in the country in of-
fense, then Southern California
and Wisconsin before playing
Michigan, with Notre Dame two
games later.
It's true that the offense will
be back strong with Jimmy Raye,
Bob Apisa, Dwight Lee and Al
Brenner, but if anybody can slow
it down, State could lose, and
lose more than once.
Tough Schedule
Southern California could be
even better than last year, but
they play Texas, Michigan State,
Notre Dame and UCLA, so their
record could be worse. Runners
like Mike Hull and Jim Law-
rence should hold up their end and

Guess
over the Big Eight in a dogfight
with Nebraska, Missouri and Okla-
homa, but no team should come
out of that region anywhere near
undefeated.
That's 10 teams, isn't it? Too
bad so many teams left off sound
almost as impressive: Mississippi,
Clemson, UCLA, Georgia Tech,
Syracuse, Purdue, Washington,
Florida, Florida State, Houston,
Virginia Tech, North Carolina
State, Nebraska, even Army; (in
fact, in this disaster area, even
Michigan has a chance, but no-
body will believe that until they
see it).

Michigan Grid Schedule
Of fers Unsure Outlook

(Continued from Page 1)
Wolverines will host the Wild-
cats from Northwestern. Coach
Alex Agase's team not only is ex-
pected to finish deep in the Big
Ten's lower echelon, but has a
murderous intersectional schedule
which includes Miami of Florida.
Bill Melzer, who keyed the '66
attack with 94 pass completions
for 1,171 yards and seven touch-
downs,- and guard Bruce Gunstra,
an All-America prospect, are the
few bright spots on the Evanston
horizon.
Slush
Apropos . the weather in the
month of November, Michigan
journeys next to slush-fund ridden
Illinois. But the experts are di-
vided as to whether the scandal
will hurt their chances, and those
who sense that an emotional im-
petus will push them beyond en-
durance.
But new coach Jim Valek should
nonethelss find a solid core to his
deep, experienced, and talented
squad. Rapidly maturing quarter-
back Bob Naponic can toss to a
possible All-America end in John
Wrigh. And last year's starting
fullback, Carson Brooks, now plays
defesnsive guard on an already
powerful defensive unit. Here, too,
"Playboy" predicts an high finish.
But emotion is a major factor.
Wisconsin, which last suffered
through a miserable season, has

25 returning lettermen to aid in
paying back the Wolverines and
other foes. New coach John Coat-
ta can call upon able tosser Chuck
Burt and rusher Wayne Todd, as
well as Tom McCauley, who last
year gathered in 46 receptions for
689 yards and three touchdowns.
These veterans, plus some Out-
standing rookies, should give the
Badgers a darkshore chance for
the Big Ten crown.
Last-Ditch Attempt
The final game pits Michigan
against a revengeful Ohio State
squad. Coach Woody Hayts rarely
has had two consecutive losing
seasons, but he faces the prospect
this year of the lack of a decent
fullback. This leaves-perish the
thought - a passing attack.
Though sophomore Paul Huff may
yet provide Woody with a ground
game, the consensus seems to be
that he will turn to very capable
quarterback Bill Long and his
passes to fleet Billy Anders. Place-
kicker Gary Casins, responsible for
11 PAT's and five field goals last
year, should make the Buckeyes a
scoring threat anywhere inside the
thirty.
Michigan, itself, has been label-
ed a question mark. Picked to 2in-
ish near the top, as well as near
the bottom, the Wolverine. could
conceivably become a strength in
the Big Ten. After all, Lady Luck
isn't all that fickle.

JIMMY RAYE
sides a high grossing Playboy
club, Miami has the same type
of quarterback problem as Notre
Dame. There is Bill Miller, whose
bombs to Jimmy Cox led the Hur-
ricanes to upsets over three ma-
jor bowl teams and a Liberty Bowl
win themselves. Also, sophomore
David Teal, who received more
billing as a freshman than did
Hanratty and O'Brien together, is
expected by some to take over the
first-string job. iMami also has
George Mira's little brother, Joe,
to play halfback.
Yet Miami is supposed to be
even stronger on defense. Ted
Hendricks, often called the best
defensive, end in the country, and
tackle Bob Taterek are the big
names.
