'M' water polo
men sink State'
for sixth rin
By ROD ROBERT
Michigan's water polo team re-
sorted to a full-court press in the
second half to sink MSU 13-11
Sunday afternoon at East Lan-
Capitalizing on numerous mis-
takes by their opponents, the
Wolverine team surged to its sixth
win of the year.
They had to come from behind,
however, as Michigan was on the
short end of a 7-6 halftime score.
Early in the game, State players
were able to break into the clear
to set up easy goals, as some
Michigan man missed his defen-
sive assignment. In Coach Gus
Stager's words, "Our play was!
pretty sloppy at first."
The full-court press changed
all that, as Wolverine players
hounded Michigan State merci-
lessly, forcing them to throw the#
ball away time and again.
Led by Mike Allen and Mike
O'Connor, Michigan came roar-
ing back and were on top 13-9
with three minutes remaining.
Stager was quick to compli-
ment his steadily improving play-1
ers. "The victory was a real team
effort. Everyone just wore State
down with that full-court press."
He then added, "Allen was great
And, as usual, he was.
High scorer at the Indiana In-
vitational Tournament two weeks
ago, Allen had four goals. But
more important was his ball hand-
ling, which played a part in al-
most every Michigan score.
Senior Mike O'Connor also
proved to be an offensive threat
with three goals to his credit.
This Saturday the team travels
to Ohio State to play its final
game of the season after THS
Ohio State's debt
Ohio State owes Michigan one championship.
The Wolverines' biggest rival of all time (Michigan State is a
Johnny-come-lately), received a great favor from Michigan and it's
time to pay it back.
Last winter, the Buckeye basketball team was in a tense
fight with Iowa for the Big Ten championship.'But with one game
to play, the Hawkeyes had a one-game lead over OSU, and only
had to get by also-ran Michigan for the crown.
Ohio State basketball coach Fred Taylor was desperate. In his
anxiety, he offered then-Wolverine mentor Dave Strack a varsity
'O' blanket if Michigan could beat Iowa in their Iowa City pit. Strange
to relate, the Wolverines pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the
year and knocked the Hawkeyes, 71-70. And Strack got a blanket.
The result left OSU and Iowa in a flatfooted tie for the crown.
In the playoff to determine the conference representative to the
NCAA tournament, Ohio State beat the Hawkeyes.
Shortly thereafter, in the NCAA's, the Buckeyes overcame East
Tennessee and Kentucky before losing to North Carolina. And in
the consolation finals of the tournament, OSU stunned highly-rated
Houston to snatch up the third spot in the nation.
Not bad for a team that needed help to win its own conference
So now things come down to Saturday's cork popper in
Columbus. Unlike the case of the two basketball coaches, anybody
who has met Wolverine mentor Bump Elliott and Buckeye chief
Woody Hayes has a clear-cut idea of who are the "good guys"
and the "bad guys" in this contest. Just ask a high school foot-
ball prospect who has been ,recruited by both men.
Similarly, there is a definite distinction between the g6od and
the bad when discussing the two schools academically, or any other
way for that matter.
After all, Michigan doesn't have a sick line "Don't send my
son to Michigan, I'd rather see him dead" in the fight song, do
Therefore, the problem is how to collect old debts from the
meanies, since Hayes is not about to roll over and drop dead for any-
It's clear that Ohio State does not want to give back the cham-
pionship that it owes. Therefore, the Wolverines will just have to go
out and take it from him.
If Hayes does reconsider, though, we'll give him an 'M'
blanket if he wants one.
Green- Bay's return
For all those who rejoiced at the demise of the New York
Yankees, and who hate the Montreal Canadiens and Boston
Celtics, the rise of another spectre from the dead cannot be any-
thing but dreaded news.
The Green Bay Packers are coming back. They almost should
be favored to win the Central Division title in the N4FL as of right now.

With four games left on the schedule, the Packers stand at
4-5-1, one-half game behind Chicago and one-and-one-half
games behind Minnesota, the leader. The catch is, that Minnesota
and. Chicago both play a rougher schedule than Green Bay from
here on out.
Minnesota must face Baltimore, Los Angeles, San Francisco and
Philadelphia. Chicago has yet to meet Dallas, New Orleans, Los
Angeles and Green Bay. The Packers will play Washington, San Fran-
cisco, Baltimore and Chicago.
The Detroit Lions face four crummy teams and could very well
beat them all. It won't make any difference, however, as the loss to
Minnesota Sunday made their record 3-6-1, and for all practical
purposes finished them off.
Now, assuming Chicago without Gayle Sayers and Virgil Carter
is a dead pigeon, only Minnesota and Green Bay are left in the race.
211 S. State 769-4252

If Minnesota loses to Baltimore and Los Angeles, as expected,
and Green Bay is defeated by Baltimore, Minnesota would lose
a full game of its lead. With the remaining difference one-half
game, the key contests shape up as the confrontations between
each of these teams and San Francisco.
The 49'ers are below .500 but managed to tie Los Angeles this
past Sunday, 20-20. For Green Bay to win the conference title the
Packers must beat San Francisco while the Vikings lose to them.
It really isn't as improbable as it sounds. Green Bay plays the
49'ers after this week's breather at Washington, while the Vikings must
face them immediately following their two battles with the Rams and
As things stand, the Central division race, which has been one
big puzzle right from the beginning, has narrowed down to a two-
way fight between its first and THIRD place teams.
