JI' Teams Ended Last Year Without One Title; Prospects Ii


(Continued from Page 1)
In the weeks that followed,
Clancy led the nation in pass re-
ceiving. He was finally edged out
of the national title on the last
day of the season.
.The Wolverine captain set the
Big Ten records for passes caught
(50) and yardage gained (698)
on.lhis way to leading the confer-
ence in pass receiving. Both the
AP All-Big Ten and All-America
teams listed Clancy as a first
string member. He signed a con-C
tract with the Miami Dolphins,
who drafted him as a redshirt.
Vidmer tossed 10 touchdown
passes to tie the Big Ten record.
Rick Sygar booted 24 of 24 extra
points to set the conference markI
in that category.
In addition to Clancy, the Wol-
verines had four other individual
conference leaders. Stan Kemp
led the pack in punting. 'Halfback
Jim Detwiler led in kickoff re-
turns, doing such an excellent job
that Illinois tried onside kicks
all day against him.
Defensive halfback Sygar was
the conference leader in punt re-
turns. Linebacker Frank Nunley;
set the pace in tackles.

All five were seniors and all
five have graduated. In all, 22
of the 42 spaces on the roster
have been vacated by graduation.
The starting lineups are hit
hard, with 14 of the 22 berths
vacant. The seniors take with
them the last of the 1965 Rose
Bowl team. Most of them had
played together for two or three
years, welding into solid, depend-
able units.
The defensive squad has lost its
entire backfield. All-Big Ten 'se-
lection Rick Volk, John Rowser,
Mike Bass, and Sygar have left.
Linebackers Barry Dehlin and
Nunley are also gone.
The offense graduated all the
'backfield except Vidmer. In addi-
tion, both ends, both guards and
a tackle have departed.
Right halfback Carl Ward and
fullback Dave Fisher have finished
their careers, along with Detwiler.
Clancy and tight end Clayt Wil-
hite are gone, as well as guards
Henry Hannah and Don Bailey.
Tackle Jim Hribal has also
The Wolverines must also re-
place their kicking game. Kemp,
punting specialist, and Sygar,

placekicking specialist, have left.
The strong point of tfle coming
season appears to be the defen-
sive line. Three regulars return
at the ends and well-seasoned
players man the entire line.
The trio battling it out for the
end positions are Rocky Rosema,
a senior, and juniors Tom Stincic
and Jon Kramer. Dick Williamson
and former NCAA neavyweight
wrestling champ Dave Porter
man the tackles, while Gerry
Miklos will start at middle guard.
The Wolverines have had a
year of experience with the new
Oklahoma defense and this year
should have the kinks wrung out
of it.
The linebackers will be Dennis
Morgan and Cecil Pryor. Morgan
skipped spring practice because
of an injury, but Pryor looked
impressive in the drills.
The backfield, "wiped out," as
coach Don James says, has only
Jerry Hartman returning with
any notable experience. Brian
Healy, Ted Jobe and Al Doty will
start around Hartman.
The offense; with more holes to
fill, is still confident. Center and
captain Joe Dayton has two years

of experience behind him and
Vidmer at quarterback should give
the Wolverines a strong passing
He will pass to either Jim Ber-
line, split end, or Jim Mandich,

tight end. The backfield has a On the line Mason exudes con-
well-seasoned veteran returning fidence. He has switched Ray
in Ernie Sharpe. Warren Sipp has Phillips from tackle to guard.
been moved from tight end to Dick Yanz will play he other
fullback. Ron Johnson will play guard, while Pete Mair and Bob
left half. Penksa will start at tackles.
