Michigan, darkhorse of the col-
lege football scene, gained on
front runner Southern California
in the latest Association Press poll.
Michigan moved up from ninth
to seventh via the 35-0 rout of
Northwestern over the weekend.

The Making of
a Champion, 1968
The last third of the 1968 season was a remarkable parallel to the
mythical horse race where a 100-to-one longshot finishes first by
systematically passing one-by-one every horse in front of him.'
After six weeks, Michigan's stunning Wolverines were a lowly
ninth in the running. But in the seventh week, a 35-0 slashing of
Northwestern moved the Maize and Blue past Georgia and California
(both had suffered ties over the weekend) into the seventh spot
Still to be overtaken were Southern Cal, Ohio State, Kansas, Penn
State, Tennessee, and Purdue.
In week number eight, the Wolverines passed Purdue which ran
intoa revenge-minded Minnesota crew at Minneapolis. The Boiler-
makers were caught looking ahead to successive tests with Michigan
State and Indiana, and ended up giving sixth ground to the Wolver-
Fifth ranked Tennessee lost to Auburn in anticipation of its tra-
ditional rivalries with Mississippi and, Kentucky scheduled for the
following two weeks. The Michigan horse was now fifth.
Everyone held his place pretty well until the tenth week when
Michigan met Ohio State for the season finale at Columbus. At this
time, the rankings were
1. Southern Cal
2. Ohio State
3. Penn State
The Wolverines ran away from the Buckeyes and tuned in' the
Kansas-Missouri game anxiously on the locker room radio. Sure
enough, the Jayhawk's luck had run out and Michigan was third in
Two links remained to be joined in the Maize and Blue success
chain. Notre Dame knocked off USC one week later, thereby reveng-
ing last year's 24-7 loss to the Trojans.
And finally, completing the drama, Penn State bowed to Syracuse
in the Eastern power struggle waged at University Park, Pa., on
( December 7.
With this, the comeback was finished. Michigan was number one.
It's over now, and whether you voted with your hands or your
feet or your mind or your vomit we have a new president. Or an old
president, depending on how you look at it.
But though the world could crumble around us, though wars
flare in the East, though violence erupts in the West, though cute
young radicals parade around the Diag, Gridde Pickings goeson.
If you enter by Friday at midnight, you might win a Cottage
