NOR''lW>±STERN'S Ara Parseghian has been taking a back seat
in Big Ten football since he became head coach of the Wildcats
in 1956. The position of head football coach at Northwestern has been
an unenviable job in the last few years and for the first two years of
his reign Parseghian diidn't add much luster to it.
This is the team that was dubbed an "also-ran" by preseason
raters. The experts had fairly solid grounds for their prediction as
40 of the 65 members of the squad reporting for football in September
were sophomores and there were just four seniors, including regulars.
Andy Cvercko, a tackle, and halfback Willmer Fowler.
But football can be a strange game at times, since the unexpected
so often happens. Unmeasurable elements like desire and sophomores
can't be accounted for before the season begins. Coach Parseghian's
dynamic leadership qualities were also unaccounted for. Northwestern
was weak at the quarterbacl spot in 1957. Parseghian uncovered Dick
Thorton, a triple-threat sophomore back, who has been like a magician
in his handling of the team.
Five Rough Games .. .
FVE GAMES remain on Northwestern's football schedule. Although
Parseghian and his players were completely elated over yesterday's
r results, no one was making rash predictions. The players were elated
over snapping a six-game losing streak to Michigan, which began in
1952. They were also happy to hear that Northwestern had scored more
points against Michigan than any other school in 67 years. Cornell
rolled to a 58-12 victory over, the Maize and Blue in 1891.
But Parseghian is a realist. "The breaks are coming our way now,"
he said. "Last year we lost eight of 11 regulars for most of the season,
due to injuries. The boys are trying to make up for those bad breaks.
They are out for revenge. However, we have to rely on our key players
and certainly don't have the depth that other conference teams have."
He added that the team is "riding high." Line coach Al Agase gives
a great deal of the credit to Parseghian. "The boys needed confidence
and he injected it into them," Agase remarked.
Yesterday the Northwestern team made no errors. The individual
statistics showed that -Northwestern was a very well-balanced team
with no apparent weaknesses. The passing attack, which was mainly
the work of Thorton, added 138 yards to the offense. Fowler, who
averaged five-yds.-per-carry, Sam Johnson, with 6.7 a try, and full-
back Mike Stock, with a 4-yds.-plus average, were extremely effective
against the Wolverines. Halfback Ron Burton didn't pile up much
yardage but scored three touchdowns.
A Brighter Future?
MICHIGAN was bad yesterday. But still the season can't be written
off as lost. Bob Ptacek sprained his ankle and probably will miss
next week's game, according to team physician, Dr. Alfred Coxon. It
is quite evident that his loss today in the first quarter removed a
great deal of the Wolverines' offensive power. But quarterback Stan
Noskin; who wasn't available because of a hip injury, should be ready
for Minnesota next week if Ptacek is unable to play.
The Wolverine offense began to move late in the -game and,
although the Northwestern line was flexible, several of Michigan's
backs should be mentioned. Darrell Harper played another good game
as he gained 56 ards in six carries and scored one of Michigan's three
Fred Julian ran hard again from the right halfback spot while
both Reid Bushong and Harry Newman showed that they may be of
help to the Wolverines in the rest of the campaign. Newman,scored on
a 16-yd. run late in the fourth quarter--the first time he got his hands
on the ball.
