Or Positive Thinking
Bill Dow wears a Princeton haircut, has a rawboned, handsome
face, and owns a well-muscled but not 'overpowering 207-pound'
frame. He'd look good peering from the bridge of a destroyer.
Unfortunately for the Wolverines, Dow hasn't been given the
command of that destroyer yet. Instead, he does his peering from
the defensive left end position for the Midshipmen on football
Saturdays. And there wasn't any gunsmoke to cloud his gaze
yesterday, as he fired broadsides into the Michigan offense,
making six solo tackles and four assisted ones.
Not all of Dow's efforts are clearly evidenced on the gridiron,
however. He takes his job as Navy captain very seriously. His head
coach, Bill Elias, cites Dow's leadership as the driving force behind
Navy's 1967 spring practice, the best in three years. And Dow, Navy's
top All-America candidate this season, wanted the Michigan game
"This game 'was the crux of our whole season," the Navy senior
smiled after the contest. "This was the one we had to have, the pivot
on the schedule. Take last year for instance. We won our first one,
then went down to Texas and lost to Southern Methodist. The third
one was the key, and we just performed terribly against the Air Force.,
We didn't play team ball for the rest of the season," Dow added.
Navy opened the 1967 campaign with a tight win over Penn
State, and then journeyed to Texas again and dropped an ei-
counter to Rice this time. History was repeating itself. But Dow
wasn't about to let another domino fall. "I've been telling the
guys how important the Michigan game was to us all week," he
emphasized. The message was well taken by Dow's teammates,
who translated' it into a 26-21 Navy win over Michigan.
The McLean, Virginia, athlete, also dubbed "Barricade Bill" and
"Detour Dow," had his own opinions on Wolverine spiritual qualities.
"They'd get fired up after a strong Michigan play, like Ron Johnson's
long runs," Dow commented. "It wouldn't last long, though. After
a little while, you could feel them giving. Personally, I thought I
would be knocked on my can a few more times than I was this
afternoon. They were so much stronger and bigger than we were,"
Navy had been worried about that "stronger and bigger"
phrase. As quarterback John Cartwright noted, his fair complexion
matching the shade of the milk he was drinking. "We saw in the
films that we couldn't run over Michigan. We had to rely on our
speed and passing." And then a shy grin broke through Cart-
wright's analysis. "Navy looked good today," he effused, speaking
of his receivers' play.
The word "bigger" crept into Coach Elias' description, too. "Michi-
gan is so much bigger than we are. We knew we would have to pass
to win. The pass was our game plan. I hoped we could put the ball
in the air 30 times (Cartwright unleased 28 salvos)," Elias added.
Referring to the Wolverine pass defense, Elias said, "I don't
think you can cover Rob Taylor, our split end, with only one or two
men like Michigan was trying to do." Taylor's bushel basket full
of press releases is a little heavier after yesterday, when he caught
seven passes for 87 yards, including one touchdown reception
covering 15 yards.
A passing attack without a running game is like a baked potato
without sour cream or Tinkers to Evers without a Chance, so the Mid-
shipmen focused on one running play, the power left.
"We knew we had to have our power left working," said Navy's
left halfback, Terry Murray. "We just couldn't run sweeps to the
outside, because they were boxing us in," Murray pointed out.
Jeri Balsly and Murray, who alternated at left half, knew how to
make the play work. Murray burst through the Michigan defense for
41 yards, including a 25-yard jaunt for Navy's final tally, while Balsly
darted and dashed for 86 yards and a touchdown. Not bad when it's
considered the pair faced a defense they "couldn't run over."
The Navy victory didn't come easy because of Ron (Ramblin')
Johnson, who tried to prove to Navy that Michigan had a fleet to
its own. Maybe not a fleet, but certainly an invincible gunboat.
Johnson pile up a staggering 270 yards, that included touchdown
trips of 72 and 62 yards. Off left tackle, believe it or not.
"It wasn't a big hole Johnson was running through," Dow in-
sisted, spreading his hands about a yard apart, "which is a testament
to his ability. Just large enough to slip through and he was gone.
1 I'm supposed to cut around on a play like that to meet the runner,"
he continued, diagramming the play on his knee, "but Johnson would
hit the line farther down, so I couldn't get to him."
The words of praise for Johnson were drowned out by a Navy
chorus of "Beat Syracuse."
Dow glanced at his watch. The timepiece had an unusual
face. The words "Beat Army" were inscribed on it in big letters,
beneath the picture of a football player.
I'm sold. Navy over Army in that one.
seven of Cartwrights tosses for
87 yards, pulled down the score
with only 1:13 left in the second;
quarter that sent Navy into the
lockerroom with a 17-14 bulge.
Halfback Jeri Balsly had quick-
ly countered Johnson's spurt in
the first quarter, plunging overl
from the Michigan three after al
sustained Navy drive. A John
Church then proceeded to con-
vert a successful on-side kick, as
the twisting squib boot bounced off
a Michigan player and was re-
covered by Navy tackle Emerson
Carr. Two minutes later, Church
cashed in on his maneuver by pop-
ping a 21-yard field goal, the first
of two during the game, and the
see-saw battle between the Mid-
shipmen and Johnson had been

knew it only too well.
