"If you have idealistic notions about, well, let's say the rah,
rah, Michigan' stuff, then maybe you wouldn't care so much
about playing as long as the team is winning. But as far as I'm
concerned, that's alot of baloney. I have no illusions about it. I
like to play with the bunch of guys we've got, and for the coaches
we've got. But that's as far as it goes. I'm not going to be one of
those alumni who comes back and cheers for the glory of Michi-
gan- the idea of winning for the school means nothing to me
at all."
Jack Clancy was Captain of last year's Wolverine football team
and an All-America end. He is now starting at end for the Miami
Dolphins of the American Football League, and owes few apologies
for his play while at Michigan.
Clancy is a member of a rare breed among athletes, a man who
"tells-it-like-it-is" and isn't afraid of seeing it in print.
"If it would come down to whether the team could go un-
defeated or I could play," Clancy explained last season, "my own
choice would have to be that I'd play. After all, the reason winning

Spurtacins No Longer Plow Up Storm

Quiet flows the Cedar River
these days up in the agricultural
belt of the state at East Lansing.
The river, usually filled to its
brim with a seasonal reign of ter-
ror from the Spartan football
squad, has been reduced to a
mere trickle ever since the start
of the MSU gridiron campaign
three weeks ago.
First Houston, then Southern
California, drank'heavily from its
source, draining it of its prestige
and making the Spartans no
longer one of the big splashes in
the nation's top ten.
But in the Big Ten, where it
really counts, the river began to
rise last week with a solid victory
over Wisconsin. And if MSU
coach Duffy Daugherty is allow-
ed to open the dikes this week
against Michigan,-look for the
Spartan crop to sprout an abun-
dance of roses.
"There is nothing we would ra-
ther do than win down at Michi-
gan," says Joe Mitch, sports edi-
tor of the MSU student newspa-
per, the State News. Mitch knows
very well that if he is to make a
junket to Pasadena this year the
Spartans must get by the Wol-
verines this Saturday in what
MSU athletic director Biggie
Munn calls "The greatest college
game and rivalry in the United
Munn speaks politely, almost
reverently of Michigan, as though
not daring to offend the Wol-
verines before the crucial game.

But his voice tells you that if the
Spartans win it (and they have
won eleven of the last fourteen
games) it's not just another win
in their record book.
MSU Coach Daugherty is more
precise about what the game
means to the good citizens of
God's little acre. "It's our most
important football game," says
Duffy, "and we will need our best
game in order to win. No other
inter-state game in the nation
is supported like this one and I
mean it as a sincere compliment
to Michigan when I say we want
to win this one more than any
other game we play."
To harvest his victory, Daugh-
erty comes into Ann Arbor Satur-
day with a squad that barely lost
Southern Cal.

back in shape again. He passed
over and around them for 111
yards and blasted out crucial
yardage on his specialty, the roll-
out option. It is on this ray of
hope, Jim's return to his 1966
form, that much of MSU's future
success will revolve around.
If Michigan's Ron Johnson,
who cruised through the Navy
line for a Wolverine record 270
yards, is again to run wild on the
same type of play, it will be up to
the Michigan line to take out two
key players from the action, both
of whom are new starters this
year. The right side of the MSU
defensive line is anchored by so-
phomore Don Law and senior
George Chatlos. If Johnson again
takes off behind Michigan's left
tackle he will find himself run-
ning right up their alley.

Two other highlights in the
MSU defensive barnyard this year
have been sophontore defensive
end Rich Saul and linebacker
Charles Bailey. Bailey was named
as the AP outstanding lineman of
the week for his play against the
Badgers. Before the season began
Saul was hailed as one of the five
outstanding sophomores in the
Michigan defensive backfield
coach Manns, who twice has
scouted the Spartans for the Wol-
verines, characterizes the East
Lansing team as "being enthusi-
astic and hitting very hard."
There are two things we must
do to win," said Manns. "We
must hit hard and execute with
perfection. If we do that we'll be
in fine shape at the end of the
game." 1

The Michigan Soccer clubI
opened its home season Sun-;
day with a 3-0 drubbing to Tol-
edo, the same team they downed:
2-1 two weeks ago.
Left wing Dieter Stefankovich
tallied twice, but it was Kuaku
Doh, playing at left inside, who
opened the scoring with a goal
in the second period.
Stefankovich followed in the
third period with a thrilling score
on a pass from fullback Graham:
Wilkes, and then added the final
tally in the fourth period.
Toledo, minus two regulars
hurt Saturday, was not at full
strength and was able to manage
very few shots on the Michigan
goal. The Wolverines, on the other
hand, kept the Toledo goalie

busy with fifteen shots on goal.
Michigan displayed two strong
lines, with periodic substitutions
to rest the players.
Last week the Wolverines re-
ceived an offer to play the Uni-
versity of Kentucky Wildcats in
Kentucky. Due to a lack of fin-
ances, the Michigan club reversed
the invitation and Kentucky ac-
cepted. They even cancelled a
game already scheduled to be
here November 11. This match
may preview a similar Michigan-
Kentucky meeting on the basket-
ball court December 2.
The next game for the Michi-
gan Soccer Club will be Home-
coming Weekend when they
travel to Buffalo to meet a na-
tionally ranked Bison team

It is hard to say how prevalent Clancy's attitude is among col-
legiate athletes. Certainly many wouldn't agree with him. But even
more would deny it if they did.
Most sports figures take a certain delight in decorating their press
clippings with tinsel and maple syrup. Bad guys don't make shaving
commercials. Too many scars.
But it can get tiring. Maintaining a glamourous image is one
thing, blatant hypocrisy another.
Many athletes operate under the assumption that they should
say only what the public wants to hear. Or maybe just what they'd
like the public to believe. It's politics in a world where it doesn't
really matter. Managed news when there's no danger to national
security. It all adds up to Super-Mush.
A sad fact is that Clancy's position as Captain might have been
jeopardized if his statements had been printed last season. Some fans
and alumni might have been shocked, some disgusted, and even some
of his teammates might have raised a few eyebrows, although it is
hard to imagine that a player as outspoken as Clancy would not have,
made his views known to those around him. .
Perhaps his attitude even affected his effectiveness as a
leader. But what should be kept in mind is that his teammates
elected him Captain despite his views, and assuming they did not
do so as a joke, Clancy should not have had to further justify his
actions or beliefs to the public.
And he's one guy who never felt he had to.

Why should you
confide in a guy
you've never met

Because the guy we're talking
about is a college recruiter from
Alcoa. And the only way to play it
is honestly.
He'll be on campus in a couple of
days. And here's what we recom-
mend you do at the interview.
First, lay your cards on the table.
Tell him what kind of work would
really turn you on.
Then, sit back and listen while he
explains how your plans figure
into Alcoa's plans. (You'll be
surprised how versatile
Aluminum Company of America
can be.)

So make it a point to meet Alcoa's
recruiter. He's a confidence man
you can really trust.
