By BILL LEVIS
Only two games separate Wis-
consin from its worst won and lost
record in history.
And only Michigan and Minne-
sota stand in the Badgers' way of
reaching that dubious goal.
The Wolverines are riding the
waves of a two game winning
streak, but they are not taking
Wisconsin lightly even though the
Badgers are sporting an 0-7-1 rec-
"They have been coming on
strong the last four weeks," Mich-
igan coach Bump Elliott stresses.
"They could have won the last
three games and probably should
have." And the statistics appear
to bear out the Michigan mentor.
Since tying Iowa 21-21, the Bad-
gers have let victory slip out of
their grasp against Northwestern,
Indiana and Ohio State. Wiscon-
sin has just had the opposite-fate
of the Hoosiers who have won six
games by seven points or less.
Under the guidance of first year
head coach John Coatta, they have
lost games by four, five and two
points in their last three outings.
Against amazing Indiana, Wis-
consin twice drove down to the
Eoosiers' 10-yard line before being
stymied by the Indiana defense.
The second time, the Badgers
struggled in vain to get a score on
the board as the clock ran out,
bowing to the Cinderella team
Last week, the Badgers' came
within minutes of an upset victory
over Ohio State only to lose 17-15
when Ohio State scored the game
winning touchdown on a four-yard

"And now stay tuned for the greatest spectacle in racing
"We're back in the control tower once again here at the Indiana-
polis 500. I'm Sid Collins, and it's been my pleasure to bring you this
world-wide broadcast for the past 16 years. This year we'd like to
welcome stations WMAO in Peking, WLSD in San Francisco and
WLBJ in Saigon to our international family of networks. And now
down to the track."
"Oh, the moonlight shines tonight upon the Wabash . .. "
"That was Russell Wonderlick with his stirring rendition of 'On
the Banks of the Wabash.' one of the annual traditions here at the,
Speedway. And now down to the tractk."
"Gentlem-e-n, sta-a-rt your engi-i-nes ..."
"That was Tony Hulman, owner of the 500, announcing those
immortal words which have become such an annual tradition here
at the Speedway."
"V-room, V-room, v-room....
"That was the roar of the' engines which the gentlemen have
s just started. What an annual tradition that has become here. Indian-
apolis would be just another race without it."
"Sid, Sid . ."
"Yes, Freddy? That was the voice of Freddy Agabashian, who
is becoming an annual tradition up here in the broadcasting booth
after retiring from racing six years ago. What would our interna-
tional family of networks do without him. What say, Fred?"
"I just thought I should point out that the race has started,
Sid. By the way, you're doin' a great job again this year, buddy. This
should be the greatest race ever."
"Thanks, Freddy. You're too kind. And now we'll switch to
Jim Shelton in the first turn."
"Right-o, Sid. And I'd just like to say that I'm glad to be bring-
ing you the first turn for the fifteenth straight year here at Indian-
apolis. This is truly the greatest spectacle in sports. Thirty-three
men and machines. A real test of endurance and skill, By the way
Sid, they passed me here at the first turn about two minutes ago.
Geez, were they going fast. Ididn't notice who was ahead."
"And now stay tuned for the greatest spectacle in racing."
"Hi, I'm Sid Collins, and we're back in the control tower here
it the Indianapolis 500, where I'm pleased to present Mr. Brian
Jones, who for the last five years, has joined us in the broadcasting
booth from his home in England to amaze us with his phenomenal
knowledge of past races, which he has committed to memory. Brian,
"Thanks, Sid. I'd just like to say first of all that I'm jolly glad
to be amazing all the people on our international family of networks
for this my seventh year - or is it six? Anyway, I would like to
point out that for the last 64 years in a row this great spectacle has
started out with 33 cars and at least that many drivers. And it
didn't surprise me one bit when it bloody well happened again this
"Sid, Sid.. ."
"Excuse me, Brian, I hate to interrupt this most interesting
portion of the program, but it has been our policy here for all the
16 years I've been broadcasting this great spectacle to interrupt
anyone at any time if something important is happening down
on the track. How does it look down on the track, Jim?"
"I dunno, Sid.They sure are goin' fast."
"Oh, it was you Freddy. I knew I recognized that voice from
"Thanks, Sid. I just thought I should point out that they've
-ompleted 25 laps, and the lead has been taken over by..."
"And now stay tuned to the greatest spectacle in racing."
"Hi, I'm Sid Collins, and we're back in the control tower here
at the Indianapolis 500, where I'm pleased to have with me Mr. Tony
Hulman, owner of the Indianapolis 500 Speedway. Tony, it looks
like another great one."
"Yes, Sid, greatness has'become a tradition here at . . ."
"Sid, Sid . .."
"Shudup, Freddy. Can't you hear I'm interviewing Tony Hulman?
"But Sid. There's a big crash down at the first turn. All the
cars are on fire. It looks like a bad one."
"Another of our great traditions here at the 500, racing fans. In
a moment we'll have full coverage of this spectacular crash.. ."
"So be sure and stay tuned for the greatest spectacle in
Ohio State coach Woody Hayes
had the audacity after the game
to call Wisconsin the best winless
team in the country. Minnesota
coach Murray Warmath bestowed;
a similar honor on Michigan two
weeks ago when he called the
Wolverines the best 1-5 team in
the nation after the Gophers had
squeaked through with a 20-15
victory over Bump Elliott's crew.
After Warmath's statement, the
Wolverines took the words to
heart winning the next two in a
row. Elliott fears the same kind
of retaliation from the Badgers.
"They're a good team and they are
just beginning to roll now," he
Wisconsin's enormous desire to
win is seen in their intense work
on the football fundamentals
even though the Badgers are as-
sured of a horrendous record.
"Some teams, when they face the
reality of losing start to fool
around," defensive backfield
Coach Don James reports, "but
Wisconsin is staying with basic
football formations, always trying
to win. They are continuing to
hit real hard."
James feels that Wisconsin is
making improvement, especially

Home games listed in capitals
by "individuals who, are doing
things better. Their passing for
example, ' has been coming along
very well under (John) Boyajian.
"He passed for 252 yards
against Ohio State, a team known
for its tough pass defense."
19 of 36
Boyajian, a senior, completed
19 of 36 passes against the Buck-
eyes. John Ryah had been Coat-
ta's number one signal caller for
the early part of the season but
Boyajian seems to have won the
job for the rest of the year with
his Ohio State performance. He
has completed 46 passes for 571
yards and two touchdowns this
His pinpoint passing accounted
for both Badger touchdowns
against the Buckeyes. He combined
with halfback Dick Schumitsch
on a sparkling 51-yard pass play
and with Mel Reddick for a four-
yard touchdown late in the first
