Rivalries .,.
and One Big Play
Traditions . .. rivalries.
I'd heard all about Michigan and it's famous football rivalries
even before I came up here as a freshman from the green hills of
West Virginia.
I'd heard about the Little Brown Jug, about the Ohio State-
Michigan battle, and of course the State game. So when I got
to my dorm and started talking to in-state guys, I was a little
amazed at the way they looked at each one.
The Little Brown Jug? "Well, Minnesota likes to make a big
deal out of it, but for Michigan the only tradition is kind of a
gentleman's rivalry,"
The Ohio State game? I have a friend who goes to school there,
and one year I went to Buckeye Stadium. I saw the whole student
body "not giving a damn 'bout the whole state of Michigan, 'cause
we're from O-hi-o." Even Johnny McKay, coach at Southern Cal,
seemed to think this is a major rivalry. (Johnny McKay grew up in
Shinnston, West Virginia.)
"But when you're up here," my dorm informants proclaimed,
"Ohio State is another Big Ten game. We might get fired up just
stomping Woody Hayes, but that's about it."
So, I thought, that was it. Every team might point to Mich-
igan as its team to beat, but the Wolverines were just playing
them one at a time. The team and the student body were too
sophisticated for this fiery bombastic stuff.
So that was it.
I was used to the great West Virginia-Pitt matches, where
Mountaineer Field would be filled with tens of thousands of rebel
yells as the hated Panthers entered the stadium, pelted by orange
peels and assorted cups of liquid. Or hundreds of hillbillies de-
scending upon the city of Pittsburgh to paint the town Old Gold
and Blue, then going to Pitt Stadium and firing old blunder-busses
throughout the game.
But none of that here.
Yet the guys still talked about the State game--how every-
one was looking forward to the State game, how their girls were
coming up for the State game, how the Stadium was sold out
since summer for the State game.
But, being the cheerful cynic that I am, I kind of smiled benignly
and reserved my judgment.
Until I went to the game.
It wasn't the hard hitting in the game that year (1965); Mich-
igan always hits hard. It wasn't the packed house of 103,000 fans
screaming as the Wolverines, against an admittedly superior State
team, actually had the lead at one point.
What got me, and proved to me that my cynicism regarding this
particular matchup was pointless, was wrapped up in one play:
With eight seconds to go, State 11 points ahead, and Michigan
putting in third and fourth stringers to give everyone a chance
to see action, Duffy Daugherty put in his first string offense to
get one more touchdown. . . and got it.
... one more touchdown!!
... one more drop of blood!!
Well, that did it. I saw the whole thing right there: State .,.
Glory hounds . . . Anything to be more impressive . . . State.
And finally I saw why the rivalry was so real:
With Duffy and his crew at Michigan State, how else could
it be?

Item: Governor George Romney (R-Mich) is planning to
make his traditional appearance at the Michigan-Michigan State
football game here Saturday. In order that he not appear wishy-
washy, the Governor has reportedly been briefed upon the finer
points of what to expect when he visits Ann Arbor:
First Aide: "Look, how could you forget him-white hair, drink
tea, smiles a lot . . . no, no, it's H-A-R-L-A-N, not H-A-R-L-O-T.
I thought you'd at least remember that after what happened last
Second Aide: "Let's come back to that later. I want to go over
a few important points. First of all, I checked on "Sesquicentennial"
and it means "156 years," not "250" like you said in your speech last
year. Apparently it can also mean "130" in certain cases. And another
thing. Saturday is a Jewish holiday, Yom Kippur. So it wouldn't be a
bad idea to be seen muching on a bagel. You wouldn't have to swallow
Romney: "Does this mean I can't tell my Jacob Javits joke?"
First Aide: "Can't risk it. Now let's talk about the real problems
we may have to face."
Romney: "Already?"
Second Aide: "The game's this Saturday. There's going to be
a luncheon held in your honor beforehand. This time don't pinch
the waitresses. And don't drink out of the fingerbowl."
Romney: "You'll never let me forget that, will you."
First Aide: "After the luncheon you'll watch the game."
Romney: "Do I get to throw out the first ball?"
Second Aide: "Pay attention. The guys in the green-and-white
uniforms will be from Michigan State. That's the one in East Lan-
sing. The guys in the maize-and-blue uniforms will be from Michi-
gan. That's the one in Ann Arbor."
Romney: "Oh-oh. I think I mixed up the budgets."
First Aide: "It's too late to worry about that now. Just remember:
cheer for both teams when they score. You don't want to alienate any
alumni. And of course you'll switch sides at the half."
Romney: "No."
Second Aide: "What do you mean, 'no'?"
Romney: "I want to sit on the side with the girl cheerleaders
the whole game."
First Aide: "You'll nev'er get elected President that way."
Romney: "I just want to be Governor of Michigan for the next
three years. Don't you read my speeches?"
First Aide: "I write them, sir."
Second Aide: "I'm worried. What if a group of hostile students
start asking embarrassing questions about Vietnam."
Romney: "I think I've made my position perfectly clear. We
either stay in or get out. I've already stated that it's definitely
a problem area. What more could they want to know?"
First Aide: "Nevertheless, I would try to avoid politics as much as
possible. You know how upset you get when you start talking about it.
Stick to the basics-'rah, rah, sis boom bah,' wave to the cameras, say
something nice about the weather."
Romney: "I'm tired of talking about the weather. Can't I talk
about something less controversial?"
Second Aide: "You should say something about the two teams."
Romney: "How about, 'On any given day ..."'
First Aide: "Think of something nice to say about Michigan
Romney: "That's a tough one. How about 'Cows chew'?"
Second Aide: "They're pretty sensitive about that. Maybe you
better just remain non-commital about the whole thing. What do you
Romney: "I'd rather not comment on that."
First Aide: "One last thing. What should you always do at any
football game?"
Romney: "Pray that I won't be brainwashed into believing
our team is winning when they really aren't."
Aides: "There's nothing more we can do. We'll see you Saturday.'
Romney: "Fine. Good night Bump. Good night Duffy"

Nick Eddy, the all-America half-
back from Notre Dame who re-
portedly signed for a $300,000
bonus with the Detroit Lions this
year, probably won't .play any
more football this season.
The rookie halfback underwent
surgery on his right knee Thurs-
day at the University of Michigan
Medical Center. Eddy, who origi-
nally hurt the knee in a preseason
exhibition game, reinjured it
Tuesday when he slipped on the
damp turf at Tiger Stadium.
"We could probably use him in
the last few games of the season,
said Joe Schimdt, the Lion's
coach. "But he could easily get
hurt again. I think it would be
better for Eddy to rest the leg
until next season."
Schmidt said the surgery was
successful and Eddy would regain
full use of his knee.

Wilt Chamberlain, the 7-foot-1,

He signed a contract rumored
to be in' the neighborhood of
$250,000. If the figure. is true,
then Chamberlain is among the
highest paid athletes.
At a news conference with coach
Alex Hannum and owner Irc Kos-
loff, Chamberlain told newsmen:
"I'm satisfied that I got a contract
for what I thought I was worth."
Chamberlain who has claimed the
reserver clause, binding a player

was dismissed by the 76ers in his
case. The move allowed him to

Why is IBM interested in so many different
The basic reason is growth. Information
processing is the fastest growing, fastest
changing major industry in the world. IBM
computers and other products are being used
to solve problems in widely diverse areas,
such as governnent, law, education, medi-
cine, science, the humanities. We need peo-
ple with almost every kind of background.
That's why we want to talk with you.
Whatever your major, you could do a lot

of good things at IBM. Change the world
(maybe). Make money (certainly). Con-
tinue your education (through our Tuition
Refund Program, for example). And have
a wide choice of places to work (over 300
locations throughout the United States).
We'll be on campus to interview for careers
in Marketing, Computer Applications, Pro-
gramming, Research and Development,
and Manufacturing. Come see us.
