Don James took over as Michi-
gan's defensive backfield coach in
the fall of 1966, and inherited a
starting foursome that would
make any coach gloat. Rick Volk,
John Rowser, Mike Bass and Rick
Sygar comprised a pass defense
that - rated among the finest in
the country. . .
Volk is now with the Baltimore,
Coms, and Rowser with Green
Bay's world champion Packers.
Sygar and Bass are gone, too,
and James is now faced with the
formidable task of building a new
defensive backfield.

Grayle Howlett
Centuries ago, sometime last spring, Clark Norton, our sports
editor wrestled the pre-season Associated Press baseball poll away
from some member of the editorial staff who insisted on picking
the Boston Red Sox to win the American League pennant.
If our illustrious leader hadn't been so quick, maybe this baseball
seer of the edit staff would have prepared us for the surprises of the
1967 baseball campaign:
Like White Sox manager Eddie Stanky informing the nation
that Vice-President Hubert Humphrey couldn't hit.
Like the dynastic Baltimore Orioles spending most of the season
in the lower echelons of the second division even though "one-eye"
Frank Robinson will defend his batting title successfully.
Like the St. Louis Cardinals, concensus pick for seventh spot,
taking away National League president Warran Giles favorite line,
"We've got ourselves another great race,"
Like the players of the so-called junior circuit playing in the
month of September for something else other than next year's salary.
Like a team, namely the Kansas City Athletics, taking their
grievances against their boss to the National Labor Relations
Like the Chicago Cubs adding more flavor to P.K. Wrigley's
gum and returning Leo Durocher to the ranks of the great man-
agers. "
Like the American League's best manager, Eddie Stanky, so
alienating the press that their is little hope he will be recognized
as such.
Like baseball's classic, the All-Star game, being billed as a
slugfest in an easy hitting park, turning into a marathon contest
which produced thirty strikeouts, not one rally, and a lot of hate
from the Nikita Khrushchev fans.
Like the Red Sox's coming up with the best defensive infield in
the majors with the likes of George Scott, Mike Andrews, Rico Petro-
Celli, and Joe Foy.
Like bad boy Roger Maris finally getting some cheers.
Like washed-up Mike McCormick of the Giants leading the
N.L. in wins and copping jthe "Comeback Player of the Year"
In any case I would like to perform an unprecedented feat in
the annals of sports prognosticating: publishing my pre-season
predictions now. In the American League I picked the Twins, so
I'm still in the race. For the record I had the Tigers second and
the Orioles third. I can't even remember picking the Red Sox to
to finish anywhere.
In the National League I had the Atlanta Braves, the pride of
every carpetbager, bringing the pennant, to the South. I buried the
Cardinals in seventh with the stipulation that when it came time to
fire manager Red Schoendienst, Redbird general manager Stan Musial
could never give the heave to his ex-roommate. I picked the Cubs to
finish somewhere in the Pacific Coast League.
So I admit I was wrong. But instead of wasting a column predict-
ing who's going to win the American League race, I'm going to shy
away from being wrong again in print.
What I am going to do is check with the edit staff; Maybe
that guy's still'around.
