Deskins, at 235 pounds, is one
of the heaviest tackles in Wol-
verine history. He dwarfs his run-
ning-mate Genyk, a 190-pounder'
who is probably the lightest start-
ing tackle in the Big Ten.
But their diversities aren't lim-
ited to the scales.
Genyk - a junior - is a quiet,
somewhat shy Detroiter who
came to Michigan as a 175-lb.
tackle. He had a fine prep rec-
ord, teaming with present Wol-
verines Fred Julian and Gerry
Smith on Pershing High's city
championship squad.
Versatility Plus
"At Pershing, the coach played
George where the team needed
him most," said Smith. "He played
fullback, guard, tackle and end,
depending on where our oppo-
nent's strength was."
His weight was a question at
Michigan, however, but he worked
his way up through the ranks in
spring practice to edge out vet-
eran Willie Smith with what as-
sistant coach Bob Hollway calls
"a great competitive desire."
"Pound for pound, he's prob-
ably the best tackle in the Big
Ten," Hollway added.
He shines on defense, too, spot-
ting opponents up to 45 pounds
in some games. He's recoveredfive
fumbles to date. I
Genyk is an honor student at
Michigan, receiving several men-

tions for academic achievement.
Deskins is a tough, ex-Marine
who came to Michigan with a
fabulousservice record.
"I had some pro offers," he
says, "but I wanted to go to school
A 27-year-old Long Islander, he
is confident, even cocky at times.
But Hollway explains, "He has
lots of pride and just wAnts to be
a good football player."
Good Blocker
Coaches say he's already a good
offensive blocker and with ex-
perience should be a terror on de-
Deskins, like Genyk, is versa-
tile. He played fullback for little
Adelphi (N.Y.) College before en-
tering the service. He also was
tried or considered for center,
guard and end at Michigan.
With Deskins and Genyk plant-
ed at tackles, Hollway says that
Michigan hasn't been outplayed
at this position this year.
'on TV
The game between Michigan
and Illinois willebe televised
regionally in the midwest this
Saturday. The game will be
televised over NBC (Detroit,
WWJ-TV, channel 4) at 1:30

ICHIGAN HAS always been known for good football teams-wih
a slight decline in the past few years. But Michigan has't been
known for spirit since the early days of the Big Ten, or even before,
when Fielding H. Yost was leading the Wolverines to numerous un-
defeated seasons. Since the days of Yost the team has continued
to win, but the student body has failed to cheer.
Other schools around the Big Ten always seem to have more
student support, better cheering sections, larger student turnouts, and
generally more boisterous football crowds. There have been many
reasons offered concerning the lack of spirit at Michigan. For one
thing there are more graduate students and more married couple# on
the 'M' campus than any other Big Ten school. These people, many
of them having spent undergraduate days at other schools, are not
loyal to Michigan athletics and either don't attend games or don't
cheer for the Wolverines.
The idea has also been offered that Michigan fails to evoke "pWrlt
because the campus is more intellectually orientated than other Con-
ference schools. Whether this is true or not can't be easily determined.
Of course, whether spirit is a good thing, and something that is wanted
at Michigan is also quite arbitrary. Many people will say that athletics
and student spirit are unnecessary in an academic atmosphere, and
perhaps even incompatible with the basic purpose of schooling.
Bad Direction ...
HOWEVER, ATHLETICS are here at Michigan, and quite deeply
rooted. As long as they exist there will be some school spirit con-
nected with them. The problem that is before the Michigan student
body at present is that fact that this spirit is poor and often ill-
Those that argue that spirit is something that isn't wanted on
the Michigan campus have good reason, and will find great backing,
when this spirit comes in the forms that much of it has this year.
The Michigan Marching Band has always been one of the high points
of a football Saturday, and has drawn almost as much support as the
team itself on occasion. However, when the band-forgetting that it Is
constantly in the public spotlight-makes fun of a Michigan loss by
leading a M-E-R-C-Y cheer, spirit is taking a turn for the worse.
Then when the students in Block-'M' section begin to celebrate
Michigan touchdowns by throwing the placards into the air, and
subsequently endangering all of the nearby spectators, spirit is
definitely being misdirected. Finally, when certain students hang
Bennie Oosterbaan in effigy, and claim that this is simply an outlet
for student spirit, Michigan spirit is obviously in bad taste.
Let's T ry Agin...
WHILE ALL OF THIS "negative" spirit is flourishing on campus,
there was an attempt to have a pep rally before the Michigan
State game. The results were a handful of people and NO spirit. Since
this time blame has been thrown on the time of the affair, poor
publicity beforehand, and generally bad organization throughout. This
may be true.
However, the proof of these accusations will rest with the results
of the pep rally planned for this Friday before the Illinois game. If,
and only if, the turnout this time is tremendous, and the spirit a
credit to a school of the size and tradition that Michigan boasts, can
these claims be credited. This time there is organization. The 'M' Club
and the Michigan Union have joined forces, and with the cooperation
of the band and the cheerleaders, will put on a pep rally that will be
the biggest Michigan has ever seen-if the students bother to show up.
For those students that have never attended a pep rally it might
be interesting to note that they can be a lot of fun. With all of the
planning going.into the one this week, one can venture a guess that
it will be quite entertaining. Therewill be the band, the cheerleaders,
speeches, and then a free dance afterwards. At any other school all
of these ingredients would make any rally a tremendous success.
Why Not Here, Too.. .?
THE SAME SHOULD BE TRUE at Michigan. As long as there are
going to be Michigan athletic teams, and resultant need for some
kind of spirit, the only logical answer is spirit in the form of pep
rallies, cheering and organized team backing. All of these are not
only more effective and in better taste than M-E-R-C-Y cheers,
throwing placards and hanging Bennie, but in the end result they
are more fun for those Involved.
The question here isn't whether the team needs backing, or
whether there is -any correlation' between school spirit and team
performance. It isn't even a question of whether school spirit is a
good thing. The question is whether the Michigan student body. can
have spirit, and have it in good tpte. A lot of' people pre going to a lot
of trouble tohave a good pep rally here this Friday. Zf everyone would
turn out and take part it would demonstrate to EVERYOQ that
Michigan can have just as much spirit as any other school.
