There are many ways to lose a football game. Fumbles. inter-
ceptions, coaching errors bad breaks, inferior talent: all contribute
to a losing effort.

A recent Michigan home victory provided me with an oppor-
tunity to meet the opposite type of loser.
The coach in question had just watched his team lose a
close decision to the Wolverines in Michigan Stadium.
When I entered the locker room and approached the coach,
he responded with a belligerent barrage of insults: "What do you
want and where do you come from? You're much too late; I have
nothing to say to you."
I ignored his comments and asked several questions, but the
coach responded with: "That's too hard a question-I can't answer
that," or "That's a canned question if I ever heard one."
In short, this particular coach acted in a manner that would
usually be considered 'small'-and one feels justified in calling him
a 'poor loser.'
Contact with a coach like this makes one appreciate the 'Bump
Elliott type' more than ever. Elliott is a man who loses and wins, like
everyone else; but he does it with a certain element of class.
Four examples come to mind which illustrate Elliott's character
throughout his career as Michigan's head coach.
Two years ago, a local columnist criticized FPliott for send-'
ing Jim Detwiler into a game in which he suffered a knee injury
which sidelined him for the rest of the season. The writer
charged that Elliott knew about the injury before the game, but
sent Detwiler in because his only concern was for winning the
I talked to Elliott the day the column appeared, and after seeing
the hurt in his eyes, and hearing his responses to the charge ("I
never have and never will send an injured played in to win a football
game"), I realized the injustice of the column.
More recently, another example of a rather different nature
occurred. After the 20-15 loss to Minnesota earlier this year, a
reporter from a major Chicago newspaper fired the following at
Elliott: "You got a rotten deal from the officials. Why don't you
says something about it so you don't get stepped on again by the
press?" Elliott calmly replied that he was "sorry," but he had "noth-
ing to say about the officiating."
The third example came several weeks ago after the final
practice before the Northwestern game. Elliott said that he was
"considering resting Dave Porter because a knee injury suffered
last summer in a wrestling match has been bothering him a
little. He's fine and completely all right for action, but I may
keep him out for a while."
Porter didn't play the entire first half of the game. It turned out
that nothing was wrong, but Elliott "just wanted to make suite."
But perhaps the best example came after last year's heartbreak-
ing one-point loss to Purdue. Anyone who saw Elliott stand in front
of the accusing throng of reporters and calmly admit that he was
"completely at fault for the loss" could not help but admire him
,or his guts.
Nobody likes to lose football games. Head coaches like it much
less than anyone else. But there's a way of reacting to a loss which
one can't help but despise. And there's another way of accepting
defeat which one can't help but admire.
