At least the old Mets were in-
truiging. Youknew they were bound
to lose, that was never question-
ed, but the Mets were so good in
defeat. Where else could one have
seen a great comedian like Mary
Throneberry hit a home-run and
forget to touch third, and then
smash a triple and skip second,
on his way around, all in one
game. 4
Yet so many other teams lack
luster in falling to the enemy. In

eted, senior linebacker Ken Criter.
Last season Criter was voted all-
Big Ten and he should repeat with,
ease. If it were not for the rest
of the team Criter would have an
excellent shot for a berth on the
All-American team.
So far this season Criter has
been credited with 74 solo tackles
and 46 assists or a 120 total, best
in the Big Ten.
In a spectacular effort last
week against OSU he made 27
tackles including 16 solos.
Criter's best distinction is his
black helmet which is presented
to the members of the Wisconsin
team for excellence on the field
and during the week. The only
other black helmet on the squad
belongs to tackle Jim Delisle.
The idea of the black helmet is
probably more interesting than
most of the team, dating back to
the original U.S. Civil War.
It happened that in a battle at
Gettysburg the confederates ran
into more than they could handle

in a fighting unit appropriately
deemed those "damn black hatted
These black helmeted fellows
finished with only one-third of
their men and were deemed one of
the best regiments in the North-
ern army. It seems that most of
the men in the regiment were
from Wisconsin and that they
were trained at now defunct Camp
Randle which was eventually
turned into the present Wisconsin
football stadium.
Aside from Criter the Wisconsin
defense has numerous holes. Six
of the eleven starting defensive
team are sophomores who began
the season with no experience.
They have looked better in each
game, but they have a long way
to go.
Wisconsin's offense isn't in
much better shape. Fullback
Wayne Todd handles most of the
running chores. Michigan coach
Bump Elliott feels Todd is one of
the best there is.

Todd has great running ability.
In the four games he has played
in this season, he has amassed
well over 200 yards and ranks as
one of Wisconsin's best runners
ever, even though he has missed
at least seven games in the last
two seasons.
Todd's biggest problems lie in a
poor offensive line which seems

Quarterback John Ryan has

means a lot for the Wolverines.

are 0-8 and unless Casey Stengel
or some other magician drops by
they could easily end up a resound-
ing 0-10. There seems little likely-
hood of a victory against Michi-
gan. Detroit bookies are listing the
Wolverines as a 24 point favorite.
There are, however, a couple
bright spots on the Badgers' team.
The most notable is black helm-

Johnson is a mere 132' yards short
of great Tom Harman's all-time
rushing records (2134 yards). With
a great effort Johnson could
smash the goal against the Bad-
Johnson, however, is in a funny
position. He is a definite All-
American candidate, but he should
have a much better chance than
he is getting. There has been
little publicity on Michigan, let
alone Johnson, during the past
two seasons, primarily due to the
team's poor showings. At the same
time great backs like O. J, Simp-
son and Leroy Keyes have had the
publicity machine rolling for well
two over years.
Although head coach Bump El-
liott has been concerned over
keeping the team up for this af-
ternoon's' game, they should be
fired up. As the last home game of
the season and the last time, per-
iod, for the seniors in the stadium
they should be giving at least
their best.
' The most encouraging part of
the team for Elliott has been the
defensive front four-Tom Goss
and Cecil Pryor at tackles, and
Henry Hill and Dan Parks, who
were largely responsible for hold-
ing the Wildcats to a mere 91
yards rushing.
The defensive backfield of
George Hoey, Bob Wedge, Tom
Curtis, and Jerry Hartman have
been rough all year and no let-
down is seen for today's contest.

MICHIGAN'S RON JOHNSON (40) shows his power as he pushes
off a Minnesota tackler. Johnson will be showing this kind of
talent for the last time in Michigan Stadium today as he con-
tinues to pursue Tom Harmon's career rushing record.

has been declared unconstitution-
al," Spartan mentor Duffy Daugh-
erty declared despairingly.
Offensively and defensively,
Purdue is one notch above Michi-
gan State in the Big Ten rankings.
Gunning for his third outstanding
game against the Spartans, half-
back Leroy Keyes will undoubtedly
be hampered by his continuing in-
juries. In 1966 he returned four
kick-offs for a 119 yard total. Last
season, Keyes did it offensively
with 193 yards gained rushing in
24 carries for an all-time single
game mark against State.
The only team with a possibility
of grabbing the Conference title
from Michigan or Ohio State, In-
diana will host Minnesota. Both
tean are riding on tough victories,
the Hoosiers' coming over the
Spartans and the Gophers' over
the Boilermakers.
In the process of beating State,
the Hoosiers took a beating them-
selves. Their' outside chance for a
second consecutive title may have
been completely wiped out with
the loss of halfback John Isen-
barger, and injuries to quarter-
back Harry Gonso and tailback
Bob Pernell.
Minnesota, who last week tal-
lied up a 27-0 halftime lead over

Purdue, will be hoping for another
100-yard game from fullback Jim
Carter. Carter and the rest of the
offense bulldozed their w a y
through the Purdue line and liter-
ally ran over would-be tacklers
in the secondary, and the Boiler-
makers never recovered.
The Wildcats put on their most
impressive offensive splurge of the
year last week, scoring five touch-
downs. Yet they face the dishear-
tening task of trying to bounce
back against Illinois from a 34
point loss, as Iowa beat them

place with Wisconsin, Northwest-

Iowa's slim upset chances rest
partly with quarterback-turned-
halfback Ed Podolack. Since the
switch, he's gained 129, 104, 112,

ern, he traveled a 'record-breaking

Coming off an offensive pro-
duction of 35 points against Min-
