Ohio's Stincic 'up
By KAREN VAN SCHOICK
Tom Stincic is from Ohio, not
too far from the sight of this
week's sport spectacular. And he's
all psyched up for the big game
down in hometown territory.
"For those of us on the team
from Ohio," Stincic declares, "the
Ohio State game is like the Mich-
igan State game for Michigan'
Stincic, the 6'3" anchor man for
the defense, has prepared for this
game for the past four years.
"Bump Elliott) has said for
weeks that we take each game as.

of us are ready for this one."
"I guess we'll feel we have really man to man. "It helps to equalize time in quite awhile that the

A senior in the physical educa-
tion department, Stincic will be
playing his last regular season
game this Saturday. He has play-
ed fine defensive ball for the past
two seasons, and has undoubtedly
won his third letter this year.
Stincic, a middle linebacker, is
currently leading the team in
tackles, but considers himself pri-
marily a team man. He sees the
defensive team as a unit and plays
"not necessarily as the coaches
see it, but as the players see it,"

Stincic's solid linebacking has been a major contribution to the Wolverines' emergence as the
second best team defensively in the Big Ten.

Friday last, the ,mighty Wolver-
ine football initiates met, fought
and defeated their counterparts
from the University of Toledo, 12-
6. The game was one of those
hard-fought clashes one would
read about for years if it were
played for the Big Ten title. But
it wasn't, so everybody will forget
it. Unless of course, they are true
Who could forget that magnifi-
cent scoring strike launched
from the arm of baby Wolverine
quarterback Dennis Connell to the
waiting hands of flanker Glenn
Doughty, 42 yards away? And
when will the memory fade of the
strong, crushing rushes contrib-
uted by fullback Dave Zuccarelli
(including a one yard smash for
Michigan's second touchdown) to
further inspire the Wolverine
Other offensive players of note
were tailback Bill Taylor and split
end Mike Oldham. The offensive
line, while not spectacular, dis-
played plenty of promise with
Another offensive player worth
space in this most excellent of
journals is Bruce Elliott, son to
Pete and nephew to Bump. He
looks amazingly like his father
and uncle when they were All-
Americans twenty years ago.
Elliott spelled Connell at the

fledgling Maize and Blue to their
second touchdown. The scoring
drive, 58 yards long, featured El-

Elliott. He led a defensive back-
field consisting of himself, Tomo
Darden (who has that George
Hoey look when running with
punts and kickoffs), John Seyferth

The defensive front four pound-

Rockets for a minus one yard in
the first half of Friday's clash, and
a meager 71 in the second as the
seond team saw plenty of action.
Defensive ends John Cilluffo and
Alden Carpenter tip the scales at
only a slight bit over 200 pounds
but are fast and tough.
The two tackles, though, are
awesome. Fred Gambeau is a 6'4"
250 pound behemoth and Tom
Beckman 'crashes 6'6" and 245
pounds into the opposition. To top

The word to the men who know
football is that Michigan scooped
just about everyone in recruiting
this year. Last week's perform-
ance is proof of this assertion.
Maybe that idiotic Big Ten rule
that says no team can go two
years a row to the Rose Bowl
should be abolished.
