UNION-LEAGUE Second Time Around

m

I

By ELLIOTT BERRY
"Everybody should buy the new
album by the 'Intruders.' It's great,
just great!," chimes Michigan
football's Motown connoisseur,j
Garvin Taylor Craw. He ought toI
know. His room is filled with rec-
ord albums, Motown albums.
Craw is an extremely fun loving
Individual, and is seemingly an
expert at having a good time.
When Saturday afternoon comes
nobody has a better time than
Michigan fullback Garvey Craw.
"Football is never work on Satur-
day. You play the game because
you enjoy it and those big crowds
just add to it."
Smash
What Craw enjoys most is
smashing opposing rushers, espe-
cially linebackers. "They're the
easiest, you get a head-on shot at
a linebacker. Up to now I've been
pulling up instead of running
head-on and chopping them."
If this is true, there's going to
be some awfully hard hitting when
Craw rectifies this error. It's dif-
ficult to believe that the soph-
omore fullback hasn't been chop-
ping people up to now.
Slob
His roommate at Phi Kappa Psi
says Craw's really sloppy. In an-
swer to the charge he replied, "I'm
not sloppy, I'm just lazy. The!

coaches will all attest to that'"
Craw's room says enough to
validate one or both of the descrip-
tions. On Saturday afternoon,
however he's obviously neither.
Since he took over at fullback
there's been a marked difference
in the blocking.
After the Navy game, the first
in which Craw saw major action,
offensive line Coach Tony Mason
was forced to credit Craw with the
primary role in the much-improv-
ed blocking. It's been the same
ever since.
Athletic Family
Craw comes from an athletic
family. His father was a national
hurdles champion at Dartmouth
and his older brother an All-East
halfback at Lafayette College in
Pennsylvania.
Craw started his football career
in the fourth grade as a tackle,
when he and his brother journeyed
across town to play little league
ball. One of his teammates, John
Tyson, is now an All-Eastern cor-
nerback for Harvard.
At Montclaire High School in
New Jersey, Craw became a full-
back and helped his team to two
state championships. In his junior
year, Montclaire was ranked the
number three prep grid power in
the nation.
Craw also played varsity base-

game. "That has to be one of the' The emphasis on academics is
most embarrassing things that not one of Craw's favorite aspects
ever happened to me," he admits. of the university, but as long as

...

Craw has spent the last few
games primarily as a bodyguard
for quarterback Dennis Brown and
especially star runner Ron John-
son. Against Northwestern, in a
game which featured less passing
than most, fullback Craw did not
carry the ball. He expresses some
desire to do a little more ball car-
rying but he rationalizes, "It does-
n't really make any difference
what I do, as long as I do it well
and we win. If we lose, it doesn't
show."
Craw thinks he will get his de-
gree in English but as of now only
one thing is certain, the young
sophomore is enjoying himself.
"I'm not really working as hard as
I should. I'm too busy doing what
I enjoy most: listening to records,
going out, playing football, and
sleeping."
It seems like there are few
things that could keep him from
having a good time.

he and his buddies have some time
to "horse-around," he is happy.
When it comes to "getting up
for a game," Craw is not the type
to go sleepness the night before.
"It doesn't really get to me until
I get on the bus to go to the sta-
dium, then I really tighten up.
Losing all sorts of sleep can't pos-
sibly do anyone any good."
Besides, it wouldn't be Garvey
Craw. He is very serious about
football but he's too lighthearted
to dwell on a game too long before
or after.
Only One Thing
"There is only one thing that
really bothers me," says Craw, "its
a 'rah-rah,' the go-go fire-up kind,
whether its for a college, a frater-
nity or anything."
When it comes to his fraternity
Craw simply states, "I live here."
To make him happy just give
him a football game, a party or
two, and some Motown.

And it's SUCCESS Bound!

M-I1iui Clash: Numbers Game

By DIANA ROMANCHUK
Saturday's football game at
Illinois may turn into a battle of
the pass receivers.
In the weekly statistics pub-
lished by the Big Ten (including
conference games only), Mich-
igan's split end Jim Berline has
forced John Wright, the Illini
end who has been the pacesetter
in pass receiving for the first
five weeks, to relinquish that
lead.
Wright has pulled in 20 passes
+ for 279 yards and one touchdown.
Berline just slips in ahead with
22 catches for 251 yards-four of
the catches in the Northwestern
game.
Aiming At
Aiming at their respective tar-
gets, will be quarterbacks Dennis
Brown and Dean Volkman.
Volkman (with 39 of 86 at-
tempts for 423 yards) ranks fifth
in both the passing and total of-
fense departments.
Brown, who earned his start-
ing position at quarterback with
a Big Ten record-breaking per-
formance against Indiana, has
attempted 91 passes and com-
pleted 43 for 430 yards, good
enough to place him second in
that department behind Purdue's
ever-consistent quarterback Mike
Phipps.
Add to that 81 rushes for a net
gain of 242 yards (ranking him'
seventh in rushing) and Brown is
again runner-up to Phipps, this,
time in the total offense category.
Another Receiver
Brown, however, has one ad-
vantage over Volkman in the
passing game-a second receiver
in the person of John Gabler,
whose 15 catches for 122 yards
rate him fifth in the conference.
The ground game will pit the

Wolverines' "workhorse" R o n
Johnson against the Illini's Rich
Johnson.
A shuffling of the rushing lead-
ers now has Leroy Keyes of Pur-
due in the top position (55 car-
ries for 452 yards) replacing
Iowa's Silas McKinnie who slip-
ped to third. But Ron Johnson
holds steady in second place with
99 rushes netting 410 yards, and
a national ranking of sixth. His
42 carries against Northwestern
gave Michigan its third Big Ten
record this season.
The Other R. Johnson
Fullback Rich Johnson is rated
ninth (69 carries for 238 yards),
and the double "ball' carried by
Johnson" PA announcements Sat:
urday may confuse a few fans.
When neither Johnson can
move the ball and a fourth down
situation necessitates calling in
the punter, another contest arises.
Michigan's Pete Drehmann has
kicked 23 times for a 39.9 aver-
age to lead the punting depart-
ments, but he is tailed closely by
Illinois' Terry Miller, with a 39.3
average for 13 boots.
Other Michigan names in the
elite of the statistics leaders in-

clude George Hoey, Dennis Mor-
gan, and Jerry Hartman.
Hoey is the leading punt re-
turner for the second week, with
five for a 30.2 average.
Morgan ranks fourth in tackles,
divided evenly between solos and
assists, while Hartman stands
third in interceptions (3 for 48).
If only statistics were vic-
tories.
