Irerrnstein s Grid

Career Ended

by Knee Injury

'ullback Tears Ligament,
aces Possible Operation

Wilson Defends Final Quarter Pass Against Rams

Daily Sports Editor
The curtain was drawn last
Saturday on one of the most po-
tentially brilliant football careers
in Michigan history.
John Herrnstein never reached
that potential because he coildn't
beat one of the most persistent in-
jury jinxes any athlete has ever
Although it has generally been
concede that Herrnstein is
through for the season, Michigan
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan hasn't
given up all hope.
Serious Injury
"The doctors aren't' really sure
yet," Oosterbaan stated yesterday.
The injury is a severely torn hga-
ment of the knee, which is gen-
erally felt to be one of the worst
injuries an athlete can suffer.
Whether the doctors will operate
is still a question. "They will decide
soon if an operation is necessary
for recovery, and then it will be
up to Herrnstein," Oosterbaan
Rather than a recurrence of one
of the 'M' captain's former in-
juries, this is something entirely
new. Game films revealed that the
rugged fullback was hit fully upon
the knee with a block, described as
"good and clean" by Oosterbaan,
Apparently Herrnstein didn't see
the blocker coming.
Last year as a junior Herrnstein
was kept out of most of the season
with an injured foot suffered
against Michigan State. Early this
season he broke his cheekbone and
nose in practice, and then was out
of the MSU game with another
head injury.
Rio Elevated
The loss of Herrnstein, which
Oosterbaan is forced to consider
final, "unless we are very pleasant-
ly surprised later in the season,"
means the elevation of Tony Rio to
the first-string backfield.
The Herrnstein injury has given
a new twist to the anticipated re-
covery of Jim Byers, who injured
his knee before the season started.
Touted to be starting center, Byers
was thought to be lost for the sea-
The fact that Byers played his
first two years at fullback, and
then switched this fall to fill the
pivot hole left by the graduation
of Jerry Goebel and Gene Snider

has caused Oosterbaan to change
the 'M' senior back.
Needed at Fullback
"We don't know if he will be
able to play yet," the 'M' mentor
said, "but if he can we will need
him at fullback. We won't know
for about a week if his knee will
be able to stand the strain of
Byers was out at practice yester-
day for the first time. The fact
that Jim Dickey has filled in well
at, center, and the recovery of
sophomore pivotman Dick Syring
has enabled Oosterbaan to switch
Byers back to fullback.
Besides the loss of Herrnstein,
the squad is still without the full
services of guard Tom Jobson,
tackle Willie Smith, and halfback
Gary McNitt. All three missed the
Navy game and are on the ques-
tionable list for Northwestern.

END OF THE LINE-Michigan football captain John Herrnstein
watches the second half of the Navy game last Saturday from the
bench, covered with a blanket. He suffered a torn knee ligament,
,and is probably through for the season.

"I didn't consider the pass play
a gamble," stated Detroit Lion
Coach George Wilson. He was re-
ferring to a pass play called by
him which resulted in a key inter-
ception by the Los Angeles Rams
Sunday at Detroit.
The score was tied 28-28 late in{
the fourth quarter, when the Lions
started a series of downs from
their own 37 line. Six running
plays moved the ball to the Rams'
On third and three, Earl Morr-
all, playing his first game for the
Lions, ran to the bench for instruc-
tions from Wilson. Morrall, who
earlier' had. thrown a 54-yard
touchdown pass to Hopalong Cas-
sady, stepped back and threw one
aimed at Jim Doran, but Ram
halfback Jack Morris picked it off
thereby ruining any Detroit hopes
for victory as Los Angels rolled
to two touchdowns. In the last two
minutes to win, 42-28.
Going for TD
"We were going for the TD,"
said Wilson. "We only call about
half a dozen bench plays in a
game, and 99 times out of 100, that
pass wouldn't have been inter-
For a while it looked as if the

In a week marked by numerable upsets Bill Hancock came through
relatively unscathed and wound up as the winner of last week's Grid
Picks contest.
Hancock missed only four out of twenty games and as a result tied
with three other contestants. His near perfect prediction of the Michi-
gan-Navy game was responsible'for his victory. While most of the
entrants selected the Wolverines to win, Hancock picked a 20-13
victory for Navy, only one point away from the actual 20-14 score.
