offense

proves

potent

Now Volkswagen
brings lasting relief to
left feet.

By ELLIOT LEGOW
Offense is truly the name of the
game in Michigan football so far
this year as both the individual
and team statistics released by
the NCAA show Michigan -names
in prominant positions.
Glenn Doughty, the Wolverine's
surprising sophomore tailback, is
fourth in the nation in rushing
and actually is number two when
yardage is figured at a per game
average. Doughty's two week total
of 329 yards give him an average
of 165 per game, a figure which
trails only that of Kent State's
Don Nottingham - 181 per game.
Doughty's fantastic average of
7.5 yards per rush is one of the
five top performances in the na-
tion. One of the players ahead of
Doughty in this category is none
other than his teammate, quar-
terback Dan Moorhead.
Moorhead has averaged eight
yards per carry while racking up
231 yards rushing, 17th in the
nation, and a phenomenal figure
five touchdowns
for a quarterback. Moorhead's
five touchdowns rushing place
him second in the nation to Steve
Owens of Oklahoma who has car-
ried more than twice as many
times as the Michigan quarter-
back. Moorhead is also among the
leaders in total offense where he
again ranks seventeenth and in
scoring where his thirty point
total rates fourth.
The total offense category is'
led by quarterback Gary Baxter
of Air Force who also places as
runner-up to Chuck Hixson in
the passing totals; meanwhile
Hixson is runnerup to Baxter in
..-

total offense stats. Don Notting-
ham of Kent State leads all-rush-I
ers with 544 yards gained, a 190]
yard lead over the number two
man.
There are very few familiar
names in any of the statistical
departments this year. Mike
Phipps, quarterback from Purdue'
is seventh in total offense, a n d'
Harry Gonso of Indiana ranks
just ahead of Moorhead in 16th.
Othei' Big Ten names among
the offensive leaders are Alan
Thompson of Wisconsin, seventh
in rushing, and Phil Hagen, Min-
nesota quarterback, twelth' in
passing and thirteenth in total
offense.
also The statistics also reveal a'
big match up of running backs
which will take place in Satur-
day's Michigan-Missouri g a m e.
Only one place and eighty yards
behind Doughty in the rushing
figures is Joe Moore of Missouri.
Moore is also running at about a
seven yard pei' carry clip and will
be the man the Michigan defense
will have to stay on Saturday.

this week from Missouri's runners
who rate seventh, but 50 yards'
per game less than Michigan.
The Wolverine's offensive pro-
duction of 87 points in two games
is good for a fourth place ranking
in the team scoring figures. Michi-
gan's 43.5 points a game, however,
trail far behind the averages of
Ohio State and Florida, 62 and
53 points per game, respectively.
It's also interesting to take a
look at any of the stastical leaders
Michigan's first two opponents,
Vanderbilt and Washington, have
produced, No listing are given for
most points scored against so
neither Vandy nor Washington w
gets any credit for its defensive
heroics.
However partly as a result of
exploits against Michigan, Doug
Mathews of Vanderbilt ranks sev-
entji in kickoff returns and Steve
Smith, also of the Commodores
holds down the sixteenth spot in
punting.
Both punters and kickoff return
men should get plenty of work
against'Michigan this year.

Moorhead's off again

How does this new ingre-

Two ways.
First, it provides continuous unemployment for your left loot.
Second, it provides near unernploymentforyourright hand.
(The only time you ever shift is when you go over 55 mph.)
Yet, even with its new ways, the bug continues to uphold
the old ways.
It takes only small amounts of oil. Absolutely no water.
And absolutely no antifreeze.
Best of all, it still delivers about 25 mils too, gallon of gas.

XEROX
IS COMING
TO CAMP US
FRIDAY, O(T.1, 1969
See your Placement Director today to ar-
range an appointment with the Xerox
representative.
Discover what Xerox is doing in color
xerography, 3-D imaging, laser applica-
tions, and systems that mate xerography
and computers. Learn, too; of the contin-
uous refinements being developed for
and incorporated in our line of office cop-
iers and duplicators.
During the question and answer ses-
sion, you'll also get a better idea for some
of the reasons behind our growth. From
approximately 3,000 people in 1960 to
over 30,000 currently.
Ask him, too, about the Xerox philoso-
phy. How we've always operated on the
premise that you can make meaningful
contributions to society that contribute
quite gainfully to yourself. And us.
This investment of your time could be
the start of a rewarding future at our sub-
urban Rochester, New York facilities in
accounting, finance, statistics, purchas-
ing, industrial relations or marketing/
sales.

re gone 'balls top powers in Texas a n d
cademic Georgia. They could have handed
the Bulldogs their only regular
season loss of 1968 had they not
lost five fumbles.
- In its next to last game of the
year Houston obliterated Tulsa
100-6 in one of the most talked
about games of the decade. Then
as a follow up to Tulsa contest
(?) the Cougars, in typical fash-
ion, lost to Florida S t a t e by a
rather lopsided 40-20 count.
What this all boils down to is
the simple fact that when the
Cougars want to they can beat the
best in college football but when
they're not in mood Vassar could
give them fits.
Add to that the fact that Play-
boy put the finger on Houston to
be the nation's number one team.
Playboy Sports Editor Anson
Mount's record in the past has
been somewhat less than mediocre.
Two years ago Playboy choose
Miami of Florida as its number
one team and David Teal, Hur-
ricane quarterback, as sophomore
of the year. Teal has never been
heard' from since and Miami im-
mediately lost to a mediocre
Northwestern snuad 17-15 before
rallying to finish the season 7-3.

Houston still has eight games
left and plenty of time to change
to the opposite direction. If
they don't the Cougars may jeop-
ardize Coach Yeoman's job. After
all Playboy chose him as Coach
of the Year for this season.
