Dennis Brown ranks in total of-
fense. In his first crack at start-
ing quarterback last Saturday,
Brown amassed 338 yards (127
rushing, 211 passing) in 61 plays
to set a Big Ten total offense
record and earn his own place in
the Big Ten individual statistics.
Brown rates seventh in the
rushing department, just behind
Indiana's Harry Gonso, the only
other quarterback ranked. Vir-
tually unknown two weeks ago
when he made a brief appearance
against Michigan State, when he
picked up 33 yards on the
ground, Brown's 41 rushes have
now netted him a total of 160
yards along with two touchdowns,
tying him for fourth in scoring.

And Returning to Those
Thrilling Days of Yesteryear
On the eve of the 1967 battle for the Little Brown Jug
(Michigan-Minnesota), a game laden with tradition and pomp,
we are returning to those thrilling days of yesteryear to re-
visit the emotion-packed 1910 contest between the Gophers and
the Wolverines, as reported by The Michigan Daily of that year.
Part One: Leading up to The Big Game
Tuesday, Nov. 16 ...
The task that the teams must face in the few days that remain
before the Gopher game is a serious one. The strength of the Min-
nesota eleven is undoubted and that the Wolverines will have to
display wonderful ability to win is certain. The most astute critics
of the gridiron pastime agree that the teams which will meet at
the week-end are great ones and that they are evenly matched.
Eckersall, who refereed the Penn game, thinks that Michigan will
have a slight advantage, while Steffen, another former Maroon star
and present Chicago newspaper writer, watched the game at Min-
neapolis and says that the Norsemen have a shade on the Wolverines.
Confident that his

played a spirit similar to that of their teacher, showing the snap
and determination that brings victories.. . .

that Magidsohn was ineligible were absolutely without foun-

every respect, and there can be no question as to his eligibility.
The All-Fresh eleven again faced the Varsity in light formation
drill Thursday ... This portion of the practice was neither arduous
nor long continued, and when it was ended about four o'clock the
1914 eleven was disbanded. As it broke up and passed into history
the regulars cheered the youngsters heartily, enthusiastically dis-
playing their appreciation of the aggregation which has done so
much toward making a strong Varsity team possible by furnishing
hard and spirited competition.
Saturday .. .
Championships hang in the balance and two powerful gridiron
machines are quietly awaiting the struggle that is to settle them.
The elevens which are to represent Michigan and Minnesota on Ferry
Field this afternoon rank among the greatest that have ever upheld
the athletic prestige of the respective institutions, and today they
are two of the greatest, if not the greatest, in the counry.
It will be a battle of men, gigantic in football ability if not in
stature .. . and although both teams, lighter than of yore, are still
far from infantile in stature, it is speed and open football of the
latest pattern that is promised and expected.
That the struggle will be a close one is agreed by every
critic of the gridiron game. It is seldom that teams have appeared
so evenly matched on the eve of a great battle ...
That Michigan will be represented by a great eleven tomorrow
cannot be doubted. The question of Thomson's eligibility became of
less importance when Yost sprang one of the big surprisees of the
season by announcing that George Lawson would start at full
