Michigan's undefeated football
team will defend its record agains
Toledo tonight.
In its second and final game
of the season, the Wolverine
freshmen take on the Rockets in
Gassbowl Stadium at 7:30 p.m.
After last week's 6-5 squeaker
over Bowling Green in a drizzle
that almost turned the game into
a repetition of the Homecoming

I Mudbowl, freshman coach Billt
Dodd is conservative in assessing
the team's chances in this next
encounter.
"In practice we've been point-
ing toward the offense. It wasn't,
as good as we think it can be
despite the weather which natur-
ally hurts the offense more than,
the defense.
"We weren't able to pass as
much as we would have liked and

This week's- guest selector .was to have been Ann Arbor's
answer to Mr. Clean, Lt. Eugene Staudenmair. When informed of
this honor, bestowed upon him yesterday after a hard day in court,
Staudenmaier exuded thinly disquised reluctance.
"I can't do that, being a policeman," he said. "You understand."
Even after gently explaining to the kind detective that his
participation would not involve illicit transactions, marijuana, dirty
movies, or this week's Newsweek he remained adamant.

A search of The Daily's Good Guy files revealed the accom-
panying photo of Staudenmaier in action at a Wolverine football
game. His job involves spotting students partaking of the various
available psychedelia. It is rumored that at last week's Northwestern
game Staudenmaier arrested a student radical for asking some girl
what she was doing in a joint like this.
The gutsy police officer had a wistful comment to add at the
conclusion of yesteday's interview.
"You know," he said, "it's too bad because I like to get involved
in these things on campus."
Thank you, sir, but we already know that.

the films don't really give us a
good look at the boys offensive y."
Jerry Perkins and Bill Brutti
shared quarterbacking honors-a
job to be divided between lv~a
Betts of Cleveland and Don
Moorehead of South Haven,
Mich., this week against Toledo.
Dodd praised the defensive
unit for a job well done: "We'd
fumbled a couple times giving
Bowling Green the ball deep in
our territory but the defense did
a good job 'closing the door,'"
The only change in game plan
that Dodd is making is to try
more passing, but he is going to
a two platoon system with more
substituting so that "we can see
as many boys in action as pos-
sible." The injury menace has
stayed away, no serious injuries
being sustained last week, and
the frosh enter this game with
"everybody well.''
Not Like the Varsity
Unlike the varsity with a highly
developed system of sc.uting,
Dodd and his assistant coaches
have seen Toledo, 2-2-1 for the
season, play only once-in their
game against Bowling Green.
,Comparing the two teams, Dodd
says. "They're basically the same
type ball club, though not as big.
They have two fine quarterbacks,
both 6-3 and 193 pounds and also
an exceptional split end."
The two quarterbacks are Bob
Ransom from Holland, Mich., who
does the running and Tony Harris
of Cleveland who handles the
passing attack. His major target
is Terry Kenneally, a 6-foot, 175
pounder from Cleveland, who has
caught seven touchdown passes
in five freshman games.
Pete Carpenter (5-11, 196)
spearheads the ground game, run-
ning,"from the deep back in the I
formation and at fullback in
the T.,
No Prediction
Refusing to make a prediction,
Dodd explained the situation this
way: Bowling Green beat Toledo
by a couple touchdowns, then lost
to Kent State 7-6 who in turn
were dumped by Toledo 21-6.
Referring to last week's game,
Dodd was pleased about the per-
formance of converted center Tim
Killian whose two field goals, one
43 yards, accounted for all the
scoring.
"We knew he could kick them
that far but we hadn't worked on
field goals in practice. Tim had
to center for the punter, for the
other field goal kicker, and then
get to kick a few himself. And
with the conditions the way they
were, that kick was even more
difficult."
However, if it were up to Dodd,
Michigan will not have to depend
solely on Killian for the scoring
tonight.

"Do me one favor, will you? Just don't emphasize the injury
aspect. That's all I've read about this fall. I swear you sports-
writers have got a hang-up on injuries. For once, I'd like to see
a football story on something positive."
The speaker? A high school football coach some four years ago.
I complied with his request and didn't mentioned the word "injury"
once in the article. But the point of view is typical of one line of
thinking that can be found among football coaches, be they high
school, college, or professional. I call it "creeping paranoia," this
physical revulsion against the word and the phenomena that has
turned winners into losers, losers into winners, and stars into has-
beens.
"Why can't the shadow of death escape me for one season,"
the coach asks himself in Montpellier, Vermont, Glendale, Arizona,
and Sioux Falls, South Dakota. "We got on that plane the best
team in the country, and got off it 48 hours later just another
mediocre ballclub," says the disgruntled coach from Football
Power, America.
I'd worry too, of course, if my team had two super-stars who
could go the cast-and-crutches route on any given play, with a couple
of replacements sitting on the bench who'd be second string on the
intramural football squad. I'd feel about as secure as the President of
the U.S. finding enemy missiles streaking toward Washington, and
getting a wrong number when he used the hot line. Security for
the football coach is having your o. J. Simpson or Ron Johnson
surrounded by a corps of MP's whenever he goes on the playing field.
Oklahoma's new head coach, Chuck Fairbanks, felt a little
queasy about doing much more with his first-string than letting
photographers take pictures of them this season. Not that they
weren't big, strong, and powerful. Rather, he was only too aware
of that fact... and one other characteristic of his Sooner squad.
With the exception of the first unit, his squad had less depth
than a dried-up creek.
So he took a revolutionary step. The squad hasn't scrimmaged
since the tenth day of practice. And they've only dressed out in full
pads about three times since then. Their standard dress on the practice
field has been the sweatsuit, and more than one observer has confused 4
them with the Sooner track team. To think that Bud Wilkinson used
to be known for his light contact work in Norman. Why, the Oklahoma
trainer has ever gone on a sabbatical.
Pure idiocy, you say. I implore you to look at Oklahoma's
record. Ranked eighth in the nation with five victories and one
loss, the Sooners are sitting on top of the Big Eighth tussle, a spot
that everyone had conceded to Colorado in August. Their only M
defeat was to arch-rival Texas by a 9-7 score. All right, Oklahoma
has an impressive record. How about their injury record, tough?
It seems that a team with that kind of practice schedule would be
about as tough as thumbtacks. Again, a surprise. Oklahoma has
suffered only one injury this season, and that to a second-stringer.
Other teams should be so lucky.
The idea is an old one. The pros have been practicing this wa!
for years, emphasizing conditioning rather than contact. The novelty
of the Fairbanks experiment is shifting the principle to the college
game, where the players supposedly needed the contact work during
the week to be proficient on Saturday. It's too early to draw conclu-
sions, but the idea does merit study by other colleges.
So too, does the whole injury problem.
Fairbanks is getting at the injury problem by reducing the number
of injury-producing situations which a player must face. Dr. Richard
Schneider, a neuro-surgeon at Michigan, has been concerned with
grid injuries for several years, but he is attempting to solve the
problem by eliminating the causes, not the contact.
Schneider had studied football fatalities and serious injuries
over a long span of time in an attempt to find what situations and
techniques are likely to produce a mishap. He has compiled film
clippings of plays in which fatal injuries were incurred into a
movie which draws several conclusions, many of them startling,
about the injury problem.
To sit through the film is a sobering experience, as a simple,
routine play suddenly turns into a horrifying accident that costs a
young man his life, or permanently disables him. I was never very
much affected by the grid fatality stories prevelant every fall, being
more interested in who scored how many touchdowns. Schneider's
movie and slide presentations brought about a rapid change in my
thinking, however. The visual media transforms sterile newsprint into
potent reality.
What Schneider's meticulous research shows is that coaching
techniques are one cause of serious injuries. Methods like clothes-
lining (making a neck tackle with an outstretched arm), spearing
(trying to dislodge the ball with the helmet), head blocking, and
head tackling, can put tremendous pressure on a life link about
the diameter of your little finger, the spinal cord. Yet, a small
group of coaches still teaches players to employ these practices,
even though their use may result in death or serious injury for
the players or their opponents.
Connected to this cause is equipment. The latest helmet design
looms up formidably on the screen, no longer used solely for protec-
tion but, also for a weapon. The face mask, in addition to providing
a tempting lever for a tackler, also obstructs lateral vision, resulting in
more blind-side tackles and new injuries.
Hopefully, Schneider's work will ameliorate the injury situa-
tion in football. Hopefully, His excellent research will stimulate 0
more fact-finding. But until that time, men like Chuck Fairbanks
will continue to avoid contact situations in practice. And sports-
writers will continue to write about the perennial problem.
Not because we love football less, but-because we love life more.
