LOVE IS OUT:

Scatback, Allen

Wolverines
With only one day remaining
before Michigan's encounter with
Washington, Coach Bo Schem-
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
yesterday'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,

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 L
is to attack the opponent's vul- l1
nerability, whatever it is," he
added.

practice

By ED MORRIS
For Michigan State, the most
encouraging aspect of their 27-
11 victory over Washington last
Saturday was the emergence of
Eric Allen, a sophomore scatback
from Georgetown, South Caro-
lina. Allen got his chance to start
when the regular halfback, T o in
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
that.
"It's always possible that I might
be injured but I don't let that
bother me too much. If I were
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

was a sophomore he contacted Cal
Stoll (former 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 go to State. I con-
sidered Purdue, also, but my
coach's enthusiasm for State
swayed my decision. I'm very hap-
py that I made the decision that I
did."
Not surprisingly, Allen is quite

(;o(ch Bo Scliembecl eir

:nthusiastlc 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 wlth 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 ti'ue of some of the teams
th,,t we'll be playing against this
fall. I think we could do as well
against them as we did in the
spring."
LAST WEEK'S GAME with
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
fumbl-s, 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
time."
ONLY THREE members of the
Spartan squad are faster than
Alen. flanker Herb Washington,
who holds a world record in 50
yard dash, and defensive backs
Harold Phillips and Clifton Hardy.
Allen, who has never run a 100
yard dash for time, runs the 40
'n about 4.5 or 4.6 seconds.
Mlen gives a lot of credit for
h s success to his high school
coach. "He gave lots of training
and helped a lot. Now, I don't
liv° 'o think about anything, it
=ust comes naturally."
The Spartans will get a big boost
from the play of Eric Allen. Michi-
ran State has not had a legitimate
breakaway threat-almost a re-
"ui-ement of the triple-option of-
tense--since the days of Clinton
Jones.
While Jones represents the
powerful as well as the speedy
ball-carrier, little Sherman Lewis
who achieved All-American status
at a svelte 155 pounds, seems to
b: a closer parallel to the Allen
style.
Both Lewis and Jones made it to
the professional ranks, with t h e
Giants and the Vikings, respec-
tively.
Allen promises to do as well.

Are you getting bored just sitting in at the LS&A building?
Fill in your idle moments between tear gas bombs by partaking
in the Revolutionary Vanguard Elite's favorite form of therapeutic
combat, Griddle Pickings.
This method was employed last evening by the Elite's stalwart
senior generals who smuggled their findings out of the LS&A build-
ing by pigeon to the everlasting edification of those below.

Rader's hit came off Gary Nol-
an, who was working on a three-
hitter until he entered the sev-
enth-and had struck out eight.
Lemaster doubled Rader home to
up the Astros' lead to two runs.
Cincinnati's Pete Rose rippedj

The victory assured the Senators
of a .500 season for the first time'
since 1953 as it gave them an 81-
