MICHIGAN QUARTERBACK DENNIS BROWN hesitates looking
for an open receiver in yesterday's 31-10 win over Duke. The
senior completed 13 passes in 23 attempts for 180 yards against
the Blue Devils.

The, score of yesterday's football game adequately re-
flected Michigan's performance. They were that good or
There is only one rational explanation for why the Wolver-
ines were so much improved over last week. Michigan was repre-
sented by a different team in each game.
Of course, the roster was the salne But the team found it
takes more than a bunch of talented individuals to play good
football. Each member has to put in everything he has before
anybody gets anything out of it at all.
Before the season started, during f all practice, the squad
looked sluggish. Nobody who saw any of the scrimmages could
possibly have felt that the Wolverines would have a successful
The California game reinforced this feeling one hundred
per cent. No future performances will ever erase the FACT
that Michigan played a horrible football game on Sept. 21,
1968. All that is possible now is to erase the MEMORY of
During practice this past week, the Wolverines made a start
at erasing memories. Coach Bump Elliott, ostensibly concerned
with the North Carolina /heat, ran his players into the ground.
When the game started yesterday, -you better believe Michigan

The lines, of course, were the key to the whole game.
They always are. Against Cal it seemed the Michigan de-
fensive line was getting pushed back two yards on every
play. But yesterday the Wolverines blasted the Blue Devil
offensive line right out of the stadium and snared nearly
every runner before he could do even a little 'bit of damage.
The Michigan offensive line also did a complete turnabout.

At ary rate, the holes that would have allowed two Mack

were no mirage. With the left side blocking of Bob Penksa, Bob
Baumgartner (or Dick Callarazzo after Baumgartner was hurt),
along with center Dave Denzin, your grandmother could have
made a first down in tough situations.
An' then there was Jim Mandich. Mandich, who has
developed into the team's top clutch receiver from his tight
end position, also had a fantastic day blocking.
On defense, the coaches used six men up front, with
Tom Stincie as the only real linebacker, and left the four
mini-defensive backs to work all by themselves on passes.
With their running game totally stopped, the Blue Devils

stew out of Duke's Leo Hart.
And when Hart did get his throws away, his receivers were
mostly well covered. Brian Healy, especially, stuck to his man
"like a fly on 'flypaper" according to one press box observer.
Only George Hoey's man, Marcel Courtillet, Duke's best receiver,
managed to catch more than one pass (he caught four).
The performance of this game right on top 'of the last one
brings back the question,/how good is Michigan, anyway? Craw,
Staroba, Johnson, Mandich, Imsland, Healy, Tom Curtis, Bob
Wedge, p us sophomore defensive lineman Henry Hill and Pete
Newell, all had the best or one of the best days in their careers.
And you have to iiclude "old number 70," Ralph (Sam) Huff,
the substitute linebacker who returned an interception for a
touchdown in the waning moments.
Add this to the fact that nobody had a really bad game
The conclusion is obvious. Michigan can play a very fine
game or a horrible game on a given day. How they do is up

EAST LANSING - Pity poor
Pinkie Palmer. Poor Pinkie.
For Pinkie Palmer is a halfback
who plays for Baylor, the very
same Baylor that was trounced
by Michigan State 28-10 yesterday
in sunny Spartan Stadium.
(Pinkie Palmer is mentioned
specifically for one reason only,
the reason being that some fans
seem to derive a peculiar satis-
faction from hearing a mellow-
voiced fellow announcing to 64,826
people that the ball carrier was
one Pinkie Palmer. An analogy
could present itself if, say, a
Froggie LeGremlin were to join

Yessir, Pinkie's ball club really
took it in the ear, while Michigan
State proved that it is a team to
be reckoned with this season. It
was the eighth straight loss for
Pinkie and his hapless friends.
The Spartans, on the other-
hand, rode to their second straight
victory on the sticky fingers of
record-setting split end Al Bren-

terback Bill Feraco.I
