For millions of fanatical foot-
ball ans across teh country, its
not, only -Who won the game?"
but also -"Who had the most yards
per carry?' or "Who made the
most tackles?'. So, as a special
treat for our Friday morning
quartarbacks, here are some per-
tinent statistics which were corn-
piled after our Wolverines first
five games.
Quite obviously, coach Bo
Schembechler has found a fitting
successor to Ron Johnson. Des-
pite missing parts of two games,
Glenn Doughty, only a sopho-
more, has rushed for 531 net yards
which ranks his 21st nationally,
and an average of 5.0 yards per
carry. Last year, at this time,
Johnson had accumulated 689
yards and a 5.4 yards per carry
rushing average.
Denny Brown's shoes are being
filled more than adequately by
_ior signalcaller Don Moorhead.
iWth the season half over, Moor-
head ranks third in Big Ten total
offense and passing. He's racked
up 933 yards in total offense, ele-
ven yards more than Brown had
last year, with 681 of them coin-
ing through the air and another
leads the team in scoring with
six TD's.

"I just wish I could say we have a shadow of a chance this Sun-
day," moaned Head Football Manager Rick "Clod" Kohn, "but those
Libels are the greatest collection of athletes ever to play on one team."
In the referring to the noon mismatch to take place at Michigan
Statium two days hence, Clod added, "I've heard the bookies 'have
listed the Libels as 79 touchdown favorites and confidentially that's
a rather conservative estimate. If we're able to keep this disaster that
close I'll be thrilled."
Libel mentor Buster "Cowboy" Block admits, "We have a serious
morale problem going into this laugher-it will be almost impossible
to keep a straight face in a 'game' with these pushovers. But I figure
that if just one of our men (or less) can avoid falling over in hysterics
79 ID's is certainly within our reach."
So join the fun and pick the Libels to roll to their third straight
romp along with the 19 other choices and win a delicious Cottage
Inn Pizza. Picks must be in by midnight tonight.

Despite his feeling that fresh-
man football games should not be
played at Michigan, Coach Louie
Lee will lead his team into action
in their first game this Saturday
morning at 10:30 in the Stadium in
purstit of a victo:y at the expense
of Michigan State. The freshmen
will be seeking to gain revenge for
the 53-12 beating the MSU varsity
gave to Michigan last Saturday.
This is the first t.ie .Michigan
and Michigan State have met in
a freshman football game and
Coach Lee feels that a rivalry such
as this is beneficial to the fresh-
man sch(dule as it brings out the
most in the payers.
lowever, if he wtre to have his
way,. Lee would not play any fresh-
mn g1mes. The games are bene-
ficial for helping the players get
into shape and for- giving the
coaches a look at future varsity
material in action, but, the small
size of the squad and shortage of
practice tir-e takes Lee feel that
the policy of playing freshman
gaies at Michigan should be re-
Due to the Bi' Ten restriction
of 30 football sclola ships and the
lack of large numbers of walk-on
players, the freshman will be
going with a very small 32 man
roster Saturday. Practice sessions
are desi'ned; primarily for helping
the varsity and not v'ery much
time is allotted to the freshnen
for prepairing for their own games.
But Lee still does have a win-

ning attitude toward Saturday's
game. He feels that the object of
playing any game is winnmg and
he thinks his freshmen are good
enough to win.
One disadvantage both Lee and
opposing coach Ed Rutherford of
MSU have is that neither knows
what to expect from the opposi-
tion. Lee feels that in a first game
the defense will have an advantage
over the offense as proper timing
on offense takes longer to achieve.
Passing also takes longer to de-
velop than running and as a result
the Michigan ground game will be
Lee plans to run the team out
of many offensive formatio.s em
use some plays that even the var-
sity doesn't employ. He plans to
run both inside and out with po .v-
er plays and sweeps.
Wingback Ted Kennedy will al-
ternately play as a runner or in
the slot as a flanker back. Lee
plans to run his wingback more
than the varsity does, without cut-
tina down the importance of the
fullback or running back.
Alan "Cowboy" Walker and Tom
Kee will be starting runne-s, ,t
running back and fullback re-
sp'ctively. Running the team at
quarterback will be Jack McBride
who is backed up by Larry Cipa.
Lee rates McBride and Cipa al-
most e ual but feels that M J3ride
has a stronger al-i and is quicker
than Cipa. Trevor Matthews, a
track star will see backup ':wsork
at all backfield positions and Greg

Eis, Bo Rather, and Randy Lo-
van wil also be available as back-
field spares.
However. Lee plans to let the
starters play the whole game as
long as they play well. Due to the
small squad, most of the second
stringers on offense will be start-
ers on defense and vice versa, so
substitution would require jug-
Mannina the receiving positions
will be Jerry Schumaker at tight
end and Gary Coakley at the split
end. Providing the blocking and
pass protection on the offensive
line will be tackles Tom Popla'ski,
and Bill Hart, guards Tom Fer-
chau and Tom Coyle, and ,eater
Mikki Hyba.
The five provide Lee with a line
that averages 325 pounds a man
and should be big enough to de-
tnur Spartan tacklers.
Ferchau will also be anchoring
the defensive line at middle guard,
and tight end Schumaker also
starts at defensive end. At the de-
fensive tackle positions will be
Jim Goode and Tony Smith. Clint
Searnan who is seen by Lee as
being possibly the best defensive
prospect on the team will be hold-
ig down left end.
Tie rest of the defense will be
arranged in the same way as the
varsity with two linebackers, three
de fensive backs and a wolfback.
Back-up fullback Greg Ellis, of
varsity calibre on offense or de-
fense, and Bill Moran will be the
two linebackers.
The defensive backs are all of-
fensive backfield prospects. Quar-
terback Jack Daniels, and half-
backs Randy Logan and Bo F'ther
will be smarting in the deep back-
field, and another quarterback,
J ,hn Pighee will be the xoliman.
Michigan State's offensive plrs
remain a secret as coach Ruther-
ford is reluctant to reveal any in-
formation about his team. He says
that the starting quarterback will
be George Mihiau, a good thrower
and runner. Mihiau will be backed
tip by Brad Van Pelt and Ftank
The stars of the future will be
unveiled as the class of '73 get its
first chance to show what its
made of this Saturday. Don't sleep
late tomorrow morning; wake up
and come down to Michigan Sta-
dium at 10:30 to see Louie Lee's
team in action.
