The first two weeks will see Ok-

Even an easier schedule, how-
ever, could not sway the Wiscon-

maintain the losingthabit.
For two years, such motivational
devices as black helmets for e,:-

have had no effect on the te~am's
willingness to yield yardage. Be-

may be even worse than before.
Perhaps the most solidly medi-
ocre elements of the Wisconsin
squad is the defensive backfield.
All three 1968 starters have grad-

are not distinguished by their
modest height and average speed.
If these players can manage to
play as badly as their predeces-
