With only one clay remiaiiiiii
before Michigan's encounter with
Washington, Co ch Bo Sc hem-
bechler is still worrying about a
key factor in the Wolverine attack
--the passing.
As he walked off the Tartan
Turf in Michigan Stadium after
'esterday's practice, Schembechler
discussed his latest worry ,"The
iuarterbacks are having trouble
getting the ball to the receivers
and when they do, the receivers
are dropping the ball.
"It's all just a fundamental
problem. The pass receiver just
has too look at the ball, grab it,

partment announced that

and bring it in to his body"
Schembechler pointed out. "It s
not because of any difficulty in
the plays or the pass patterns,
they're just dropping the ball."
Schembechler indicated that he
intended to go to the air a lot
more than the 11 times his quar-
terbacks passed against Vanderbilt
in the 42-14 blitzkrieg.
"But I'm not promising any-
thing. You can never disregard
your inside attack. My philosophy
is to attack the opponent's vul- u
nerability, whatever it is." he

Scatback Allen

makes war on enemy

For Michigan State, the most
encouraging aspect of their 27-
11 victory over Washington last
Saturday was thu emergence of
Eric Allen, a sophomore scatback
from Georgetown, South Caro-
lina. Allen got his chance to start
when the regular halfback, T o n
Love, was injured during a pre-
game practice session. Love will
have a real battle getting his old
job back as Allen gained an im-
pressive 113 yards in 28 carries.
Allen is hardly as powerful a
runner as Love--he weighs only
161 pounds. But he compensates
for his lack of size with whippet
speed, and amazing moves that
.leave tacklers grasping air in-
stead of shoulder pads.
OFF THE FIELD, Allen is an
articulate, polite young man who
is confident both about himself
and his future.
"I'd like to play pro-ball, of
course, but if that's not in the
cards for me, then I'll teach- -
phys ed, sports, something like
"It's always possible that I might
be injured but I don't let that
bother me too much. If I wera
unable to continue playing I guess
I would interest myself in new

areas and concentrate in them. I
would continue college, of course.
Allen admits that his decision
to attend Michigan State was
influenced mainly by his high
school coach, T. L. Smith of
Georgetown's Howard High.
"In high school, my coach was
enthused about my going to State
from the beginning. Even when I
(l iy
was a sophomore he contacted Cal
Stoll formr MSU assistant
coach who is now head coach at
Wake Forest) and all during my
high school career they kept in
touch. After I graduated every-
thing worked out just right and I
was able to vo to State. I con-
sidered Purdue, also, but my
coach's enthusiasm for State
swayed my decision. Ii'm very hap-
py that I made the decision that 'I
Not surprisingly. Allen is quite

enthusiastic about this year's
Spartan team. "We've got a
strong team. This new triple op-
tion offense-we can really make
it go. We can score 40 points a
half with it. We scored 82 points
in the green and white game this
spring. And remember, the white
defense was familiar with the kind
of offense we run. This isn't going
to be true of some of the teams
that we'll be playing against this
fall. I think we could do as well
against them as we did in the
Washington fell somewhat short
of Allen's expectations. In explan-
ation Allen said, "The first four
minutes there was. no problem,
things were going just like we
wanted. But then, little incidents
-fumbles and things-really hurt
us. You can't fumble on the 4 yard
line and not be hurt."
Asked if Coach Daugherty had
put, the Spartans through any sort
of preparation in order to prevent
fumbles, Allen replied, "No, we
don't have any sort of special drill
for fumbles. We don't worry about
them. It's just a matter of hang-
ing on to the ball at the right
ONLY THREE members of the
Spartan squad are faster than
Allen, flanker Herb Washington,
who holds a world record in 50
yard dash, and defensive backs
Harold Phillips and Clifton Hardy.
Allen, who has nevei' run a 1bo
yard dash for time, runs the 40
in about 4.5 or 4.6 seconds.
