speaktg Qf the Stuff
that makes champiois
Sports Editors, traditionally, are fools.
They're fools because they try to make predictions- Nevertheless,
I feel compelled to reaffirm the forecast I so ignorantly printed on
the first day of school:
"Michigan will be a contender this year ...
I no more believed that hopeful prognostigation than the most
cynical reader. At that time, things looked bleak indeed for the 1968
Wolverines. Cursed with a stark dearth of depth and experience,
hobbled by preseason injuries, and blatantly lacking in 'star'-calibre
players, they were picked by almost everyone to finish in the bottom
half of the Big Ten standings.
Nevertheless, after six games and five victories, Michigan is
number one in the conference. The Maize and Blue have knocked off
three of the four title contenders they will have to face, and they've
done it in three consecutive games.
The Wolverines have averaged over 30 points per game in
their five wins, while allowing 15. They have the league's top
rusher-Ron Johnson. And they hold the number nine spot na-
tionally in Associated Press rankings.
- All this adds up to the most successful Michigan leap off 'the
starting block since the last Olympic year, 1964.
t Meanwhile, several Wolverines are approaching career records.
Johnson is only 312 yards away from Tom Harmon's hallowed ground-
gaining mark set nearly, thirty years ago. The 200-pound Michigan
captain has gained 1,822 yards to date in about one-and-one-half
seasons of play. Harmon set his record over three complete seasons,
1938-'40.
Johnson trails Bob Westfall, who graduated one year after
Harmon, by merely 37 yards for second place on the all-time rushing
list. He should easily eclipse Westfall's mark this Saturday against
Northwestern.,
Johnson also is within nibbling distance of Harmon's "rush-
ing attempts" record of 406. To date, the senior workhorse from
Detroit Northwestern has lugged the pigskin 392 times for Michi-
gan.
By virtue of his 11 completed passes against Minnesota Saturday,
quarterback Dennis Brown moved up to the number two spot on the
all-time Wolverine passing annals with 152. He needs to hit for an-
other 36 completions to pass Dick Vidmer's career total of 187.
Brown also is within striking-distance of Vidmer's "passes at-
tempted" record of 382. He needs to throw only 85 more in the last
four games of the season.
In the punt returning category, cornerback George Hoey is still
about 300 yards short of Gene Derricotte's mark of 753 set from 1944-
'48. But the speedster from Flint Central has the longest single punt
return mark by a Big Ten player this year-63 yards against Navy in
the Wolverines' 32-9 win.
Finally, tight end Jim Mandich, though only a junior, needs
only seven more receptions to pass the likes of Kramer, Berline
and Henderson to the number three spot on Michigan's all-time
aerial-snagging chart.
Mandich has caught 26 so far this year, and 52 over two seasons.
He is a long way from Jack Clancy's record of 132, however.
'This, then, is how the 1968 Wolverines stack up in the record
books. And although there is no direct correlation between statistical
excellence and a sunny trip for New Year's Day, Michigan appears
headed for its finest season since 1964.
By the way, Michigan's ninth-place AP ranking is the best since
the second week of the 1966 season, when, by virtue of convincing
victories over Oregon State and California, it rated number eight. The
last time a Wolverine team finished in the Top Ten was in 1964,
when the Rose Bowl-bound Maize -and Blue copped a dandy fourth
place in the final poll.
