Before the 1968 football season
even got started, people were say-
ing that Northwestern would be
a force to reckon with inthe Big
Ten-if they could survive their
first five games.
In the first weeks of the cam-
paign the Wildcats faced such,
national powers as Miami, Notre
Dame, Southern Cal, Purdue, and
Ohio State, and somewhat pre-
dictably lost to all of them.
But the idea was that by swap-
ping blows with such power-
houses before playing the run-of-
the-mill Big Ten schools North-
western would just have to get
tougher, and therefore make
things very difficult for their re-
So last week the Wildcats got
their first victory, edging the
frustrated Wisconsin Badgers 13-
10 in a contest closely resembling
a Shaw comediy.
It was not the kind of win the
Wildcats had been looking for.
The Badgers' had gone winless in
15 straight games, and North-
western was heavily favored. Yet
they eventually won the game
only on a sensational break.
Leading 10-6 late in the game,
the Badgers sprung loose a speedy
halfback, who headed down the
sideline with what should have
been the frosting on a Badger vic-
But it was not to be, alas. The
halfback suddnely pulled up short
with a leg cramp, he was promptly
dumped, and Northwestern came

Their fifth loss, following sound
drubbings by the Irish, Hurricanes,

heartbreaking 45-21 screamer to

quarters before the Yolumbus jug-

So last week Northwestern was
probably due for a letdown and
it couldn't have come at amore
oportunte time. Now the Wildcats
have had a chance to regroup be-

prising sophomore quarterback,
and are reportedly approaching
a rabid state for today's battle
with our high-flying Wolverines.
Michigan, by contrast, goes in-
to the contest in better shape then
they've enjoyed all year, lacking
only cornerback Brian Healy from
the lineup which has started since
the Duke game.
The Wolverines have been in-
creasingly impressive in every

to California in the season opener.

After five consecutive victories,
three of them over some of the
Big Ten's toughest teams, the
Wolverines may be due for the
same kind of letdown that almost
did the Wildcats in against Wis-

remarked early in the week. "We

The "else" obviously refers to
a trip west over the Christmas
vacation, but Elliott and his as-
sistant coaches are reluctant to
admit entertaining even the
vaguest thoughts of a bowl bid.
"We know ' that Northwestern
is a good football team," Elliott
continued. "They're especially
tough defensively, and we'll have
to move the ball to hope to win."
Moving the ball has been a
Michigan forte of late, with the

trademark. Michigan scored the

The opening game of basketball
season is still a month away, but
the Wolverine cagers have been
at their task since October 15.
Yesterday coach Johnny Orr
unveiled his troops for the first;
time in a f u 11 intrasquad
scrimmage, complete with officials.
While the group that can gener-
ally be considered the first string-
ers rolled up 105 points, the score
really doesn't matter as the work-
out was used more as a prdving
ground for the coaches.
Court mentors Orr and F r e d
Snowden were trying to get an
idea as to the extent of the team's
progress to this date and came
off well pleased. They have in-
stituted a running offense that
requires a well conditioned team
and yesterday's performance
showed, that If "nothing else the
players are in good shape.
Assistant coach Snowden felt
that the squad demonstrated good
conditioning considering how long
they have been in practice and
that this was particularly impres-
sive since they "did well after a
tough week of practice."'
Practice has been tough because
to play the' barnburning, fast
break styleof basketball requires
players with great endurance.
Snowden points out that it is the
type of game that "needs a lot of
work" and is something that the
team must gradually work up to.
Michigan fans will remember
that running was not the Wolver-
ines' forte last year, but a change
can be expected in the upcoming
season. The coaches feel that their
material is geared to a breaking
attack, especially in the case of
the big men.
Dennis Stewart, Rudy Tomjano-
vich and Bob Sullivan are all par-
ticularly quick for their size and
demonstrated this speed yester-
ullivan and Stewart were both
hitting the outlet passes for the
break and still managing to fill
the lanes on the way down court.
And, of course, the ability of
Tomjanovich to clear the boards
along with the other two is also
an essential factor.
To run a break, though, a 'team
also needs fast guards who can
handle the ball, and Ken Maxey
and Dan Fife fit the bill yester-
day. Both were triggering easy lay-
ups fr6m their key positions in the
middle of the break.
When not running the team also
demonstrated an ability to handle
a pattern offense which leaves the
way open to such free lancing as
the backdoor and one-orb-one
The offense is a multiple affair
with room for a lot of action either
off a pivot man or without one.
Actually, it is a combination of a
no-pivot offense devised by Orr
and a pivot attack developed by
By December 2, Michigan should
be able to present a new act in the
Events Building other than some
faceless concert performer.
