Wolverines, 27

-20

By GRAYLE HOWLETT
Associate Sports Editor
Indiana and Michigan extended
their respective streaks yesterday
as the Hoosiers rallied in the last
two minutes to thump the Wolver-
ines, 27-20.
It was the fifth straight win for
Indiana giving them a perfect 5-0
slate on the year, the first time
since 1910 that they have won
their first ,five games. It was the
fourth straight loss for Michigan;
dropping their season record to
1-0, an ignominy they haven't
experienced since 1937.
The defeat was a complete re-
versal from last week's; trouncing
at the hands of Michigan State,
as the Wolverines, after being
down 20-0 at one point, hustled
the momentum away from the
surprisingly potent Hoosiers in the
second half.
+ With the spotlight on perrenial
sub Dennis Brown, who this week
wrestled the starting post from

Dick Vidmer, the Wolverines push-
ed across three scores to tie In-
diana, but passed up several
chances in the fourth quarter to
break it wide open.
"I was proud of the way these
guys came back," a tight-lipped
Bump Elliott, Michigan's head
coach, replied. "That's why this
loss hurts so much-it destroys a
great effort."
Having a hand in destroying
the great effort were two Indiana
sophomores, Harry Gonso and
John Isenbarger, who figured in
all the scoring and paced an of-
fense which racked up 375 total
yards.
It was the intimidation of the
option pass play, a play which
gives converted quarterback Isen-
barger the option to pass or run,
that finally scuttled the Wolver-
ines.
After Michigan's attempt for a
game-leading field goal was wide
to the left, the Hoosiers took over
on their own 20 with 4:37 left in

the game. An illegal procedure call
set it back to their 15. Then in
eleven plays with Isenbarger
going over from the one, Indiana
had its third stralght conference1
victory.
Five of those plays were option
sweeps by Isenbarger, gaining 26
yards. The Michigan defense, al-
ready stung twice when Isenbarger
threw over the drawn-up second-;
ary, once for a 41-yard touchdown;
to Jade Butcher, the second to set+
up another score, had to defenda
against the pass allowing Isen-
barger to chew up valuable real1
estate.;
It's no great surprise (the run-
pass option play)," an affable
Hoosier coach John Pont related,
"because we've used it in all our
games this year. It's a natural. We1
shifted John (Isenbarger) from
quarterback to tailback because of
the great job Harry (Gonso) has'
done, so we know John can throw.'
It gives our offense a great
threat."

Elliott saw it the same way:
"It's the toughest play to defend
against in football. And when they
do it as well as they do, it's doubly
tough."
Michigan looked like they wduld
throw off the frustrating effect of
a losing skein when they started
chewing away at the Hoosier lead.
Down 20-0, the dimunitive
Brown drove the Wolverines 53
yards in ten plays, capping the
drive with a two-yard plunge over
right tackle. Hankwitz's placement
made it 24-7 and gave the Wolver-
ine side of the scoreboard its first
action since Ron Johnson rambled
72 d yards against Navy some five
periods ago.
Michigan cut the margin to 20-
14 when Brown sneaked over from
the one and Hankwitz added the
PAT. The score was set up when
Tom Curtis played the run-pass
option play perfectly and inter-
cepted the Isenbarger aerial to
Too Little
Too Late

Butcher. From there it took the
Wolverines only eight plays from
55 yards out.
The next 21 minutes and 20 sec-
onds of football, described by Pont
as "a game of give-away, by both
sides," was some of the wildest
seen by the win-starved Wolver-
ine fans.
After exchanging punts, the
ubiquitous Isenbarger coffin-corn-
ered an Indiana punt out on the
Michigan two-yard line. With
their backs to the wall, Michigan
couldn't move but Pete Drehmann
got them out of a jam with a
beautiful 79-yard punt, from the
Michigan eight to the Indiana 13.
From there Michigan forced In-
diana to punt, the Wolverines tak-
ing over on the Indiana 33, a gain
of 59 yards as a result of Dreh-
mann's punt. However, after driv-
ing 28 yards, Brown was spilled
for no gain on a fourth and goal
situation on the Indiana five, and
the Hoosiers took over.
Three running plays yielded only
eight yards, and, once more, Isen-
barger trotted back to punt. This
time Isenbarger took the snap and

headed around left end towards
the first down chain. Michigan
defensive tackle Dick Williamson
was somewhere in between and
managed to disengage Isenbarger
from the ball, giving the Wolver-
From the 16, Brown ran up the
middle for twelve, the Hoosiers
were penalized for two, Brown
dove for one, and Johnson smash-
ed over from a yard out. The short
drive knotted the score at 20-20. A'
bad snap from center Joe Dayton
to holder Brian Healy kept it that
way.
One play after the kickoff, the
Wolverines had the ball again, this
time on a fumble recovery by Jim

Wilhite on the Hoosier 28. Seven
plays later, the Wolverines were
stalled on the Indiana five and the
call went to Hankwitz.
He was wide, and it was time
for Isenbarger to trade the goat'
horns for the hero laurels.
The game was a study in futility,
for the Wolverines. They outgain-I
ed Indiana by 24 yards, getting 188
on the ground and 211 through the
air. Also, the Wolverines invaded
Hoosier territory on ten different
occasions yet could only score'
three times.
Brown proved he was worthy of
a "good hard look" as he impress-
ed in the statistic department. He

completed 18 of 31 for 211 ya:
and rushed for a net of 127 yar
His roll-out style of play, coup
with a quarterback delay pl
flashed the Michigan fans ba
to the Bob Timberlake days.
"He (Brown) did a beauti
job for you guys," Pont commer
ed, "he really kept the defense
balance. His main asset is ti
he's quick."
For the Hoosiers, it's anoth
week to bask in the higher ecl
lons of the undefeated. For I
Wolverines, it's another week
bad movies. For Bump Elliott,
another week to wonder if
team can come back: 'This defe
hurt them bad, but they came ba
great in today's game, and the:
come back next week."

GRAYLE HOWLETT: OFF BASE
Cinderella in Hoosterland?

Oxford, Ohio, a peaceful town
built loosely around the Miami
University campus, has a proud
heritage. It has been the mailing
address at one time for such grid-
iron notables as Paul Brown, Weeb
Eubank, Woody Hayes, and Ara
Parseghian.
Such personages are mere sec-
ond stringers when the Miami
alums gather to talk about their
greatest pigskin notable, John
Pont. The now Indiana mentor
spent three years chalking up
over 3,000 yards for the Red and
White and garnered All-Mid-
American honors each year.
For such heroics Pont's jersey
number (42) was the first and
only one at Miami to be retired,
an honor which rates somewhere
between getting the keys to the
city and getting the tail and ears
from the losing bull.
After his playing days, Pont re-
turned to Oxford to coach the
Redskins from 1956-1962. In 1962
he pulled off the upset of the
year when Bob Jencks booted a
field goal to lift the lowly Miami
team by an undefeated Purdue
squad, 10-7.
Unbuttoned
After a brief stint in the but-
toned-down conference at Yale.
Pont took on the Indiana coach-
ing job and there had to be some
thoughts of reissuing 01' No. 42.
You see, Indiana has dreamt the
impossible dream of going to the
Rose Bowl every year, but each
time they've upheld their losing
tradition.
Pont coming to Indiana was go-
ing to be the classic struggle;
great coaching meeting a totally
inept football program. At first,
it looked like Indiana had won
as they typically piled up a 3-
16-1 record in Pont's first two

that we had to start from scratch.
And we did, beginning with get-
ting new uniforms."
Pont's main talent, of course,
isn't tailoring, but in recruiting:
"What did we have to offer a boy?
A losing ball club. We have al-
ways depended on talent from
the Midwest and three states, in
particular-Illinois. Indiana, and
Ohio. But look at the competition
we had. Sure the boy would go
with the winner."
Round the Bend
"But now we feel our program
has turned the corner. Now we
can offer a boy a fine program
plus the chance to play. We're
so young that we can't name our
starting line-up 'til right before
the game; there's that much
competition."
"This is really our first year
of recruiting here - this sopho-
more class being all ours-and 27
out of the 31 came from Illinois,
Indiana, and Ohio. Now that's
progress."
Thirteen of those 31 played in
yesterday's victory, with two of
them, quarterback Harry Gonso
and tailback John Isenbarger the
keys to the Wolverines fourth
straight loss.
When asked about Gonso, Pont
fingered the psychidelic cover on
this week's Sports Illustrated and
gave a short chuckle, as if to say;
"You'll see tomorrow." What he
actually did say was this: "Har-
ry's a fine sophomore quarter-
back. As a matter of fact, there
seems to be a rash of fine sopho-
more quarterbacks this year. But
that Just proves that football is
a cyclical game. He'll better with
each game."
In that case, I pity Indiana's

next opponent, Arizona, because
Gonso proved without a doubt
that he is capable field general.
His yardage statistics weren't that
impressive, but when a sophomore
calls all the plays in an 85-yard
winning drive, experience can't be
that far away.
After the game, getting into the
Indiana dressing room was as hard
as stopping the Isenbarger-to-Jade
Butcher pas option play. Appar-
ently, Indiana is so used to losing
that the managers by instinct
lock the door to the press. After
finally convincing the red-shirted
Hoosier manager that they had
won, the press was admitted.
Pont was perched on a training
table looking as fresh as he did
in the "executive suite." Clutched
in his hand was a can of "Hustle,"
some kind of soft drink which he
probably pours down his offensive
unit.
All the Way?
The first question he was hit
with was whether the Hoosiers
could go all the way. Again, he
laughed and said: "Wait a min-
ute, this winning is kind of new
yet. We still have a young team.
We have to play it week by week.
Sure, its great to talk about our
best start since 1910 and to point
out our ranking. I love to talk
about it because I'm a football
coach, and its my business to win.
But we've got a tough game next
week against Arizona. We'll have
to look at that one."
Pont did say something definite:
"If this is the script of our games,
I don't mind-as long as we win."
And it looks like winning might
be a new habit at Indiana.
I wonder if they're ever retired
a coach's jersey?,

fort.
With Indiana's last minute vic-
tory' yesterday over Michigan, 27-
20, Pont's aiming to have an
Indiana coach remembered. It was
the Hoosiers' fifth straight vic-
tory, and second straight coming
from behind in the last minute,

led. "And that we've never been

true. Indiana had a lousy football
