"The only way we're going to
stop Michigan is to shoot Ron
* Johnson as he comes out the lock-
erroom," exclaimed Illinois' coach
Assuming, Coach Valek foregoes
that strategy, the only one to be
murdered this afternoon should
be the Illini football team.
"We have absolutely no special
ideas on how to stop Johnson."!
Valek added. 'We'll just play our!
normal defense and hope that!
someone is able to shoot through
to stop him."
"As concerned as we are about
Johnson, we'll still have to watch
out for Dennis Brown." Coach
Valek noted that "Besides being a
threat as a passer, Brown can
break loose around end." He then
concluded, "Johnson and Brown
are as good a one-two punch as
anyone in the country."'
Il inois in turn places all its
hope on its own one-two punch,
quarterback Bob Naponic and
fullback Rich Johnson. The prob-
lem with Naponic, though, is that
he is finding it harder and harder
to stay on his feet. "Bob's prob-j

lem," Valek thinks, "is that he is
a quarterback who stays in the
pocket. He isn't as good a runner
as Brown, and our front line isn't
nearly as strong." Because of the
pass rush against Illinois, Naponic
has been dropped a total of 212
yards behind the line of scrim-
When Naponic has been able to
get rid of the ball, the results still
haven't been overwhelming. The
Illini have only been able to score
one touchdown this season by the
aerial route. In addition, Naponic
has had 11 of his passes picked off
by enemy defenders.His comple-
tion average has been a meager
44 per cent.
Not all the blame, however, can
be placed on Naponic. Coach Valek
commented, "One of Bob's prob-
lems is that he has no adequate
receivers to catch the ball." Doug
Dieken, the Illinois split end, leads
the team in receptions with only
20, good for 212 yards.
Halfback Bob Bess has grabbed
a large share of the remainder of
Naponic's passes, 13, one of which
is the only touchdown pass com-
pleted by the Illini this season.
The tight end position is even
weaker than the two other re-
ceiving spots. Len Winslow started
out the season at the spot, but
was not an adequate blocker and
was replaced by Doug Redman, a
Illinois' biggest offensive threat
is their fullback, Johnson. He
leads the Illini rushers with 616
yards. Because of his threat as a
runner on the draw play, he, has
possibly kept Naponic from in-
curring total doom at the hands
of opposing pass rushers.
Even with Johnson, the Illini
have only gained 1142 yards rush-
ing. Michigan's Ron Johnson is
only 240 yards behind the whole
Much of the blame for the im-
potent Illinois offense eventually
falls on the interior line. Besides
losing Redman when he was con-
verted to tight end, the line has
been plagued with injuries. Coach
Valek has been forced to go with
inexperienced sophomores and
non-lettermen to fill the holes.
This scrounging around has left

when they charge onto the field.
Jerry Miklos is out with what has
been called everything from the
flu to mononucleosis. Brian
Healey, a cornerback, has been out
since the Minnesoca tilt. It is not
known whether or not his shoulder
will even be okay for the, Wiscon-
sin and Ohio State contests.
Safety Jerry Hartman has been
shifted to Healy's cornerback
spot, and Bob Wedge has been
filling in for Hartman.
Michigan is almost a three-
touchdown favorite in today's
game, and if Bump's Boys aren't
looking ahead two weeks, this is
probably not too far out of line.
You play 'em one at a time, to
coin a phrase, and Bump knows
that a team thinking about the
future is ripe for an upset.
Even by Illinois.

MICHIGAN'S RON JOHNSON charges through a hole in the Northwestern line for a gain in last
week's victory over the Wildcats. Johnson, an All-America and Heismann trophy candidate, is rapid-
ly closing in on Tom Harmon's all-time Michigan rushing record. Today he and Dennis Brown (22)

ers who learn the opponents for-
mations in order for the first-
stringers to become acclimated'
with an opponent's style of play,
As a result, the Illini have been
coming into each game not know-
ing exactly how to play against
their opponent and have had to
adjust during the game. Often, by.
the time they've adjusted, they're
too far behind to catch up.
This problem is even more in-
jurious to the defense, who don't
have the slightest idea what it
will be like to defend against the
Wolverine offense. What's worse,
the defense could be even worse
off than the offense. The whole
defense has been plagued with in-
juries and the pass defense hasn't
been anything to brag about when
it's healthy. The pass defenders
have only picked off three op-
ponents passes, while allowing op-
ponents to gain 969 yards through

Purdue travels north to seek lost glory

Not so very long ago Purdue
was headed for the Rose Bowl,
and with it a Heisman trophy to
halfback Leroy Keyes. But time
has taken its toll, aside from the
loss to Ohio State, Purdue has,
suffered numerous injuries.
Bob DeMoss was lowered into
the coaching duties when' Jack
Mollenkopf caught hepatitis. Star
quarterback Mike Phipps was hurt
last weekend' but will be back in
action, not, . however, in top
form. Even Keyes has been slowed
down due to injuries.
