Minnesota 2nd Half
Swamps Michigan

MINNEAPOLIS - It was the old, old story and before long it's
going to make Bump Elliott old too.
For the fifth time in six 1967 football games Elliott's Wolverines
played well enough to win - and lost.
Individually and, in fact as a team, Michigan was superb. Denny
Brown's starting swiftness was brilliant as he moved Michigan
through and over the giant Gophers with astonishing ease, until
! the very end when the time pressure seemed to get to him and his
passes,went awry.
Denny Morgan, Tom Stincic, and Dave Porter combined for 38
tackles and stopped Minnesota's vaunted running game time after
time, except at the very end when they were justifiably tired and
the massive Gopher offensive line was able to open some key holes
for Curt Wilson and George Kemp.
Tom Curtis, Brian Healy, Jerry Hartman, and George Hoey, the
defensive backfield, intercepted three passes and broke up all but
five Minnesota pass plays as they excelled for the first time this
season.
Two of the five came in the last quarter and were good
for. 72 yards .One to flanker Mike Curtis was a T-D fling which
brought Minnesota to within two points. On the play, .safety
Hartman appeared to have Curtis covered, then suddenly lost
his balance or was pushed and was five yards away when the ball
was caught. The second pass, to left end Chip Litten, set up the
winning score.
And Hoey and Ron Johnson were greased and primed in the
cold Minneapolis air. Hoey had no less than 140 yards in punt re-
turns while Johnson pulled off one of his patented long touchdown
runs which keynoted the first half of the ball game. But Hoey's
runback, with less than a minute remaining, was 54 yards long,
but still 26 yards too short.
So'Michigan lost again.
Instead of scapegoating, it might be judicious to look at some
facts. For example, the fact that Michigan would have gone into
the half-time leading 15-0 if it hadn't been for an offside infraction
that nobody, apparently not even the officials, saw. A fumble re-
covery by the fired-up Wolverine defense on the three-yard line
appeared to have stopped a Minnesota drive with just over a minute
left in the half. Then somebody pointed out that there was a flag:
on the ground and the play was nullified.
Elliott, in a genuinely rare display of anger stomped onto
the field and asked an official to tell him who was offside.
The official blushed angrily and said, "I didn't make the call."
Three plays later Wilson went over from the five for a TD.
Altogether Michigan was hit for 107 yards in penalties while
Minnesota, which has the most aggressive style of play in the Big
Ten, was barely touched for 27.
Neilther Elliott nor assistant coach Tony Mason would allow
themselves to be quoted as to their actual opinion of the officiating.
Bump would only say that "Penalties can go either way and you
don't win or lose because of them." Said Mason, "I'd like to look at
the film."
Minnesota's Murray Warmath, who has to be the most un-
sportsman-like coach in the Big Ten was still honest enough to admit
that "'when I think the officials did a good job, as I did today, it
usually means that we got the best end of the deal."
But if the officials were an obstacle to Michigan, then the
breaks were a veritable brick wall. The Wolverines couldn't
have bought a piece of paper yesterday, if they'd offered the
numbers of their uniforms.
One example will have to suffice - from the key fourth and
one situation at Michigan's 13-yard line during Minnesota's winning
drive late in the game. Quarterback Wilson handed off to Kemp and
Wolverine Stincic was close enough to grab the halfback and pull him
down. But just before Kemp hit bottom Stincic's hand slipped off,
and Kemp fell forward for the first down. If Stincic hadn't been
off balance, Michigan would have had the ball and kept the Brown
Jug. The same thing must have happened ten times yesterday.
Mason wasn't fooling when he said white-faced after the game,
"We were the best team out there today, not Minnesota, and they
know it. In my four years here (including a 9-1 season) we have
never deserved to win more and I can truthfully say that I have
never seen a team give a greater effort." But neither Elliott nor
Mason would make excuses.
Nor could anyone who saw the first half of yesterday's
game fail to be impressed by Elliott's sagacious coaching. Bump's
Messiah-like decisions must have made right guard Stan Brod-
nax feel like John the Baptist. Twice in two minutes, Brodnax
was sent in with the play on key third down situations.
The first time, Johnson rambled around the end for only
61 yards past everybody but Warmath himself, and Michigan
had already scored more than MSU had a week before in the
same stadium. The second time was on a third and one situa-
tion on the one yard line and once again a touchdown resulted.
A few moments later Elliott elected to have Mike Hankwitz try
a 21-yard field goal, although Hankwitz had missed a 15-yard point
after touchdown, a few moments before. The kick was good.
But the field goal was the end of the scoring for Michigan and
the Gophers started on their own streak of 20 points in a row.
And in the end, the one that has the most, does win. But some-
times undeservedly.

George Hoey. who had already re-
turned three punts, for a total of
86 yards, grabbed the ball on his

Time ran out as Brown was
thrown for losses on the next two
play.s
"Well, they didn't exactly beat'
us 49-0, did they?" Elliott later
smiled half-heartedly to halfback,

"We could be five-and-one -
