ip & down'Spartans head nowhere

U."'

by ROBERT GIBER°
The strongest point that can bel
seen in favor of Michigan's foot-
ball neighbors from East Lansing
is their tradition of bouncing
back from a horrendous season to
vie for the title.
Michigan State meets the pri-
mary qualification of having de-
generated from a major power in
two successive years to just an-
other one of those Big Ten teams
who specialize in presenting Enter-
tainin half-time shows.
Whether coach Duffy Daugh-
tery c a n.reassemble an injury-
ridden and relatively novice' crew
still remains to be seen.
As if these two handicaps aren't
enough, it w a s reported earlier
this w e e k by Coaefl Daugherty
that tailback LaMarr Thomas, the
second leading rusher on the
squad last year, will be last for the
entire year due to a spring leg in-
jury that has improperly healed.
This is the same LaMarr Thomas
who achieved notoriety last spring
by leading a racial boycott on the
State campus.
IMPOTENT OFFENSE
,W it h Thomas sidelined, there
won't be toormany offensive.men
who will grab the East Lansing
headlines. One possible exception

AL BRENNER

may be Al Brenner, who should
be one of the most elusive ends in
the league. He, however, is the
only veteran on an otherwise un-
tested line. Ron Saul, whose twin
brother Rich handles the defen-
sive end chores, is probably the
only other certain member of the
front wall.
Although State lacks the poten-
tial All-Americans of recent years,

they should be well stocked in the
backfield, even with Thomas' de-
parture. Daugherty has two speed-
sters to choose from for the va-
cated halfback spot. Along with
junior Don Highsmith, the team's
fastest running b a c k, there" is
sophomore Tommy Love, who is a
man to watch in State's football
future. Love presents both a run-
ning and a passing threat, as dem-
onstrated in high school, where he
ran for 30 touchdowns and passed
for 17 others. He also has good
size, at 6-1 and 195 lbs.
The fullback position should al-
so be a fight between seniors Dick
Berlinski and Regis Cavender, the
latter a holdover f r o m the '66
championship team. They, too
however, will be hard pressed,
mostly by sophomore Earl Ander-
son.
CONVERSION
The, biggest news in State's
spring drills was -the conversion
.of Hawaiian-born Charley Wede-
meyer from reserve quarterback
to starting flankerback, a new po-
sition itself in the Spartans' ren-
ovated offensive plan. Although
the smallest man on the t e a m
(5-7, 175 lbs.), Wedemeyer's speed,
quickness, and able hands should
help him survive the football wars.
The. graduation of quarterback
Jimmy Raye left another question
mark to be answered in the Spar-
tan backfield Daugherty express-
ed a leaning toward senior Bill
Feraco, b u t sophomores Scooter
Longmire and Bill Triplet could
see action as the year progresses.
The, defensive squad, normally
a Michigan State strongpoint, was
hit hardest by injuries last year.
The crippled are expected to re-
turn however, along with a few
surprising new faces. End R i c h
Saul and tackle Carley Bailey
should comprise the core of the
State defensive wall. Veteran Nick
Jordan, along with junior Jack

THE BIG TEN
Zindel and soph Bill Dawson may
complete State's line.
SURPRISES
A few defensive performances
raised Duffy's eyebrows a shade
this spring. The unexpected tal-
ents included sophomore Clifton
Hardy, an exceptionally quick de-
fensive halfback; two sophomore
linebackers, Dave Schweinfurth,
and Calvin Fox; and two convert-
ed offensive stars, Al Brenner and
Frank Waters.

er offensive ends, have been
working also at defensive b a c k
spots, upholding Daughtery's the-
ory that the same attributes for
catching a football would also be
effective in denying receptions.
In general, Daughery h a s a
sprinkling of veterans intermixed
with many sophomore hopefuls.
He and the rest of the Spartan
staff are optimistic that the com-
petitive atmosphere acquired at
spring drills will continue o n c e
the team begins its '68 season.
There also' was a note of opti-
mism for those Ann Arbor fans in-
terested in this years installment
of that great interstate rivalry,
Michigan vs. Michigan State.
Coach Daughtery, once coaxed to
look beyond his squad's first game
with Syracuse, ventured to s a y
that the Wolverines were an im-
proved ball team, and might press
State a bit more than last year's
slaughter.

DEFENSE DUBIOUS:
Irish fortunes hinge on offense

MICHIGAN HALFBACK. John Gabler finds himself alone among a bevy of Michigan State tacklers
in last year's 34-0 defeat. Nick Jordan (72),' Kermit Smith (41) and Charles Baily (61) will return

By ELLIOTT BERRY
The resurgent Irish Empire un-
der the rule of King Ara the Mag-
nificent shows few visible signs
of decay or loss of eminence for
the coming holy season.
For the fifth consecutive year
since King Ara filled the vacancy
caused by the abdication of Huey
the Poor, t h e Irish find them-
selves high among the list of most
respected gridiron powers.
Whether it has been on the arm
of John Huarte or a Terry Han-
ratty, on the hands of a J a c k
Snow or a Jim Seymour, on the
NATIONAL
OUTLOOK
legs of a N i c k Eddy and Larry
Conjar, or on the brute strength
of a Alan Page and a Kevin Har-
dy, coach Ara Parseghian h a s
brought about a renaissance in
Notre Dame football which has
placed him next to the immortal
Knute Rockne in Irish football
annals.
IMPRESSIVE RECORD
Like it or not, Parseghian, who
since arriving in South Bend af-
ter a frustrating coaching assign-
ment at Northwestern has racked
up the most impressive record in
collegiate football, will field an-
other standout squad this season.
There is however a ray of hope
for the nation's devoted Notre
Dame haters. Parseghian has lost
seven of last year's defensive
starters including massive Kevin

ghian's coaching powess, which
has earned him a 33-5-2 record at
Notre Dame,, to a rigorous test
when he must send his inexper-
ienced defense against the Soon-
ers and the Boilermakers, two of
the nations strongest teams. A
slow start for Hanratty and Sey-
mour, such as last year, must not
be repeated if the Irish are going
to get out of these games alive.
SOLID DEFENSE
As for the defensive unit which
is in question, Parseghian need
not worry about his front four.
Anchored by huge junior M i k e
McCoy, the line, which averages
250 pounds per man, should be as
tight as any the Irish have re-
cently had.
Behind the front wall, 'however,
only co-captain Bob Olson h a s
any appreciable game experience.
Sophomores Tim Kelly and Jim
Wright will get their baptism un-
der fire when they are called on
to defend against t h e tosses of
Purdue's Mike Phipps in their
second outing.
While the task, of building a
complete defense will .be a chal-
lengeing one, this should not be
King Ara's most difficult season;
especially with such high geared
offense.
Chances are that he'll have the,,
defense as w e l1 as the offense
ready for what could well be the
joust for the mythical national
championship/with 0. J. Simpson
and' Southern California.
One worry Ara the Magnificent
won't have this seasori is over his
annual battle with the now de-
funct Spartan Empire (Sorry Duf-{+w
fy).

TERRY HANRATTY
Hardy and pass stealing ace Tom
Schoen.
The Irish offense may have to
function at maximum efficiency.
when they 'open their season meet-
ing powerhouses Oklahoma an d
Purdue on successive Saturdays,
in order to compensate for line-
backing a n d secondary crews
which are as green as a shamrock.
The heralded passing d u o of
Hanratty and Seymo~ir, who as
sophomore phenoms led the Irish
to a national championship two
years ago (sorry Duffy), as sen-
iors are set to assault all Notre
Dame passing records. Hanratty
will undoubtedly grab at least a
few of the great George Gipp's 48
year old passing miarks.

JIM SEYMOUR
While t h e Irish aerial attack
should dominate t h e headlines,
Notre Dame's opponents can ill
afford to leave holes in their rush -
ing defense. T h e Irish, boast a
couple/of hard nosed ballcarrier
in Bob Gladieux and fullback Jefz'
Zimmerman.
Normally a team can afford a
slip or two at the start of the sea-
son and still make it a brilliant
campaign by capturing its confer-
ence title.
As an independant, however,
Notre Dame 'has only a top na-
tional rating to shoot for and thus
a loss in either of her tough open-
ing struggles would be most dam-
aging to the Irish.
These contests will put Parse-
