Phil Seymour's
longest season
HE STOOD slightly off to the right of the action; his hands
stuck deep inside his pockets; his Maize and Blue jacket with
the cloth M embroidered on it strangely conspicuous amid the
flurrry of white and gold jerseys that moved on the field be-
side him.
He looked at the sky, and then gingerly bent his knees
against the cold autumn air.
He was Phil Seymour, and these were familiar poses for
him this season: standing to the right of the action, looking at
the sky, gingerly bending his knees.
But the standing, the looking and the bending were more
than just poses. They were symbols, too - symbols of a foot-
ball player waiting to hear when his injured knee would be well
enough for him to play again.
FOR SEYMOUR, the waiting had seemingly ended two
weeks ago, when he pulled on his number 91 jersey and prac-
ticed for the first time in five weeks. For Michigan football fans,
the waiting had seemingly ended last Saturday in East Lansing,
when Seymour, an All-Big Ten defensive end last year as a
junior, played his first game of the season.
And then Tuesday, the announcement came the Phil
Seymour will be lost to the team for the remainder of the
season and will undergo surgery for the removal of cartilage in
his right knee sometime in the next two weeks.
"I don't know any of the medical details," Seymour told
me during Tuesday's practice. "You'll have to get those from
(team physician) Dr. (Gerald) O'Conner.
"I just felt the knee snap on

YOU HAVE AN excellent col-

THEIR ACCOUNT of the game
itself looked as if it were a take-
home assignment in a high school
journalism class. There were num-
erous paragraphs loaded with
complicated explanations of how
the Wolverines handed the game
to MSU through errors. This be-
comes ludicrous when o n e con-
siders that there was anotherI
team on the field that was ob-E

incidentally, playing superior ball.

tackle of the game and of the season midway through the third
quarter, when he grabbed MSU's Frank Foreman from behind
after Foreman had swept 14 yards on an end-around down to
the Michigan 31.
Later in the same quarter, with Michigan trailing 23-3 and
State holding the ball second and six on their 33, Foreman tried
the same play. This time he ran right into Seymour, who stopped
him for a four yard gain.
The Spartans ran their next play at the center of the line.
The ball carrier was Don Highsmith. The tackler was Phil
Seymour. The gain was only one yard, and the Spartans had to
punt the football.
IN ALL SEYMOUR had a hand in seven tackles. Four were
solo tackles, the other three, assists. His total was the fourth
best on the team, and his overall play earned him a place in
Coach Bo Schembechler's Victor's Club. Said Schembechler,
"Seymour probably didn't even realize he was hurt in the heat
of the game. He was really keyed up."
For Seymour, getting keyed up for a big game is nothing
unusual. He was keyed up enou' h during last year's Michigan-
Michigan State game to make 14 tackles and knock down a
pass at the line of scrimmage in helping the Wolverines to a
28-14 victory. He was keyed up enough, too, to make 15 un-
assisted tackles in the season opener against California last
It was efforts like those that mada Seymour the team's lead-
ing tackler last season and an All-Big Ten selection at defensive
end. And it was efforts like those that made Coach Schem-
bechler and the Wolverines wait hopefully for the return of Phil
Seymour in the second half of the 1969 season.
Now, with Seymour's return come a-nd gone in the space
of three hours on a single afternoon ,everyone will have to wait
until next year for the real return of Phil Seymour. Schem-
bechler is confident the Big Ten will grant the senior end an
extra year of eligibility, since he will have only played in one
game all season, and since that game was in the first half of
the year.
"If I'm eligible to play," Seymour said the other day, "and
I'm physically all right and think I can play well, then I'll play."
Said Michigan Coach Bo Schembechler, "Phil Seymour
would play a good game if he went out on the field on one leg.
He's that type of competitor."
