Stobart molds

Wolverine offensive


Wolverines far back
in NCAA gymnastics

If previous success is any
measure of what the future has
in store, then Michigan's offen-
sive backfield coach C h u c k
Stobart will field a top notch.
crew next fall. The new assist-'
ant, one of many that head
coach Bo Schembechler brought
with him from Miami, has been
very proficient throughout h i s
coaching career at turning out
teams that had one thing in
common - winning.
Stobart's career began in
Middleport, Ohio, where he
played quarterback for his
school's football team. U p o n
graduation, he attended Ohio
University, and was. for three
years the leader of that institu-
tion's offensive unit, as well as
an infielder on the -baseball
squad. The next fall, he report-
ed to his first coaching assign-
ment, as head coach of a small
school in Lancaster, Ohio.
He s stayed at Lancaster only
one year, long enough for him
to win the league champion-
ship. A year at Gallplis H i g h
school followed with the same
results, an undefeated eleven
and a league crown. Stobart
then moved on to .Mount Ver-
non, Ohio, where he was to spend
the next four seasons.
His first year at Mount Ver-
non brought his first losing re-
cord, a disastrous campaign in
which the team failed to win a
game. The second year showed
some improvement, a 5-5 record.
By his third fall at the school,
he had transformed the team
nto a power, as they won all
nine, of their games and w e r e
ranked seventh in the s t a t e.

They came close to repeating
this success when, in his fourth
and final campaign at Mount
Vernon, he lost but one game,
and that in the final seconds of
Stobbart had by this time at-
tracted the attention of officials
from Marshall University, who
chose him to become both of-
fensive backfield coach and
head coach of the baseball
team. He spent one year at Mar-
shall before going to Cincin-
nati, again as offensive b a c k-
field coach. In this capacity, he
coached Greg Cook, at that time
a sophomore, who was to be-
come a star quarterback for the
In 1967, Schembechler, at that
time head coach at Miami, hir-
ed Stobart to direct his back-
field. Then, when he became the
Wolverine coach, Stobart fol-
lowed him to Ann Arbor to take
up the same duties.
Stobart has high hopes for
next year's backs. The first or-
der of business is to find a tail-
back to replace Ron Johnson,

who bore the brunt of the run-
ning attack for the last t w o
seasons. Lance Scheffler, John
son's back-pup last year, has a
pulled hamstring buscle and has
not worked out as yet. Other
candidates for the position are
John Gabler, a flanker l a s t
season, and sophomores Glenn
Doughty and Billy Taylor.
Lack of depth could cause
some problems at the fullback
position. Only Garvie Craw has
genuine experience in the back-
field, and this could be a fac-
tor as Stobart plans to divide
the running attack much more
evenly than last year. "The
fullback will probably carry the
ball 20 to 25 times a game, the
tailback 20 to 25, and the quar-
terback eight to 10."
At the quarterback spot, Sto-
bart can choose between Don
Moorhead, Jim Betts, and Bill
Berutti. Moorhead played be-
hind Dennis Brown last season
and saw some action. Betts was
a flanker, and must make th e
adjustment to his new posi-
tion, even though he was a
quarterback as a freshman. Be-
rutti is largely untried. The
quarterback will have to be a
combination of a good runner,
passer, and ball handler, as
more emphasis will be placed
upon the option play than in
times past.
An innovation for the com-
ing season will be the shifting
of the flanker between a spread
and a tight position. At the tight,
or wingback, spot, he provides
an additional blocker as well as
another running threat.
Lack of experience c o u I d

JIM BETTS, candidate for the Wolverine quarterback position, hands off to Garvie Craw (48), last
year's starting fullback. Looking on are offensive backfield coach Chuck Stobart and another quat-
terback prospect, Don Moorhead (27). Betts saw duty as a flanker last season, while Moorhead was
lettering at quarterback behind Dennis Brown. Craw was the second leading rusher on the team

last fall.
Stobart's own words, he will be
using "good, solid kids with a
.good attitude and goofd disci-
pline." With these qualities and
with Stobart's knack for pro-
ducing winning teams, Wolverine
fans should not be disappointed
in next fall's backfield.






Bruins, Canadiens

win in.

A" fril-

By The Associated Press f
BOSTON - Veteran Johnny
Bucyk triggered a typical Boston
scoring outburst with two first
period goals and goalie Gerry
Cheevers fashioned his second
straight shutout last night as the
Bruins crushed the Toronto Maple
Leafs 7-0 and gained a 2-0 lead
in their best-of-seven National
Hockey League playoff series.
The Bruins, who set an NHL
scoring record with 300 goals
during the regular season, relaxed
their muscles and stuck to finesse
hockey for the most part in over-
powering the outclassed Leafs.
Unlike the series opener, when
132 minutes in penalties were
whistled in a 10-0 Bruins victory,
there was just one brawl, a second
period slugfest between Boston's
Don Awrey and Toronto's Larry
Mickey. Awrey had a slight edge,!
but picked up a three-stitch gash
under an eye for his trouble.
Bucyk, playing the finest hockey
of an illustrious career as the top
scorer in Boston history, tallied

in their National Hockey League
East Division semifinal series.
The best-of-seven set shifts to
New York for the next two games,
tomorrow and Sunday nights.
The Rangers, who lost their
ninth consecutive playoff game to
Montreal dating back to 1957, car-
ried the play to the CanAdiens

from the, outset and held a 2-1
lead before the second-period ex-
lBobby Rousseau tied the score
2-2 at 4:28 with a partly screened
30-foot backhander that slid past
Ranger goalie Ed Giacomin. Yvan
Cournoyer put the Canadiens
ahead to stay' with a power-play

breakaway goal at 6:45, only six
seconds after New York's Walt
Tkaczak was penalized for trip-
ping Terry Harper.
Jean Beliveau, who fed Courno-
yer for his goal, completed the
burst at 12:59, lifting Sorge Sa-
vard's rebound over a fallen Gia-
comin. It was the 69th playoff
goal of his career.
Ralph Backstrom closed out the
scoring with 28 seconds left after
the Rangers yanked Giacomin for
an extra skater.

assessed a fee similar to that of
the students. Canham noted that
there was no precedent for s u c h
action and that valuable time
might be lost in trying to obtain
money from the faculty.
In their open meetings w i t h
students this past week, the com-
mittee found widespread opposi-
tion to the proposed construction
of the North Campus building on

more convenient to existing hous-
ing would be desirable, but B i11

Community Relations, said that
the Fuller Road site was chosen
with the future growth of North
Campus in mind.
The committee hopes to pre-
pare final plans for the new build-
ings or presentation to the Re-

was indicated that at least one
year would elapse between Re-
