Varsity mauls frosh in loosely played opener

Michigan revealed its new look
in basketball last night in the
annual Varsity-Freshmen game,
and the sparse crowd came away
less than impressed. In a game
minated by mistakes and sloppy
P y, the varsity ran Ito a 105-78
victory that showed a need for the
remaining week of practice before
the season's opener.
Coach Johnny Orr admitted that
his team requires more work, par-
ticularly in the area of the full-
curt press. "We were not as well
conditioned as I thought we'd be,"
commented Orr, "but the press
did work well at the end of the
first half and the start of the sec-

teat blew the game open.
After a sliggish opening fifteen
minutes in which the outside
shooting of Dennis Stewart and
Rudy Tomjanovich had given the
letternien a 10 point lead, the var-
sity's pressure finally took its toll
upon the inexperienced frosh.
IA steal by Rodney Ford, another
basket by Ford on a pass from Bob
Sullivan and a Dan Fife bucket
following a steal by Sullivan came
in rapid succession to open up a
16 point margin with three min-
utes remaining in the half.
The frosh did manage to cut the
.ficit to 10 once again at the
half but the effects of the tough
man to man pressure were ob-
viously too much for them. An-
other three basket outburst at the
start of the second half, all com-
ing on fast breaks, buried any
hopes of a comeback that the new-
comers might have had.
The remainder of the game was
just a matter of the varsity exert-
ing their superiority and building
up their lead to its final 27 point
margin. Many of the points came
in a final racehorse 10 minutes
which saw the court populated
with reserves. The magic 100 mark
was finally reached with 1:20 left
on a jumper by Tom Lundstedt.
Despite the generally sloppy con-
duct of the game, the varsity did
manage to show flashes of its of-
fense before the substitutes ar-

got part of his 10 points on these

The senior Wolverines did hold
a lead before their explosion, and
much of it was forged by Dennis

In retrospect, it seems a little grotesque that the Wolverines and
their fans were actually hoping to go to the Rlose Bowl before
*t As it turned out, Michigan had about as much chance to beat
Ohio State as it would have had against the Los Angeles Rams.
Apparently, when you are about to take on the Buckeyes, you
tter have at least as much material as they do because you will
ver beat them on desire alone. That's because nobody but nobody
gets up higher for a game than OSU..
And how could they avoid it? There's a fight song at Ohio
State which says, "We don't give a damn about the whole State
of Michigan, we're from O-hi-o." This sounds like evidence of a
fantastic inferiority complex. And really it is, in everything except
So if they don't give a damn about Michigan, the one thing
they do give a damn about is football, FOOTBALL, FOOTBALL.
Columbus, Ohio, has the most enthusiastic football fans in the
Midwest, in the country, in the world. Incidentally, that includes
South Bend, Indiana, home of Ara and Co.
And Columbus is much more than a football town. It is a
football CITY. The 590,000 rabid football nuts who populate it
makes it .the second biggest city in the state next to Cleveland,
bigger than Cincinnati. In a football stadium that is somewhat
smaller than Michigan's, the Buckeyes quite often outdraw the
In spirit, of course, there is no comparison.
Last .Saturday, for instance, football;was on everybody's mind
all the time and the 85,000 who were lucky enough to get, tickets for
the game were just a small part of it. But they made up for the
'eople who were not there by making enough noise for 590,000.
At the end of the game the mass of screaming people who over-
ran the field in order to tear down the goal posts were not hindered
in any way by the police. Apparently, the cops were looking after
their own safety.
But all this was minor compared to the riot-celebration that
descended on High Street (OSU's version of State Street plus a
uple of dozen bars).
Clearly, nothing like this would ever happen in Ann Arbor.
It got to the point where you thought you would probably have
felt sorry for Columbus if OSU had lost. Should that have hap-
pened the whole city would probably have melted away into one
big crying puddle.
With all this going on around them, it's no wonder that the

e not ,quarterback Rex Kern and fullback Jim Otis, but people
like offensive tackles Rufus Mayes and Dave Foley, and on defense
John Tatum, appropriately playing the monster-man position.
And leading the animals is the biggest of them all, Coach Woody
Hayes. Hayes does not let a little thing like modesty get in his
way. The team is always "my boys" as he says "my boys are a quality
team". Hayes must have more enemies than anybody since Attila
