Guard Baumgartner plans California trip

Bob Baumgartner has a uni-
que idea for a party to cele-
i brate his next birthday January
6th. The guest list includes some
hundred thousand people. The
jfestivities include a gigantic
parade and the choosing of a
The scene is to be the Rose
Bowl in Pasadena. The date will
be January 1, 1970. The party
will be sponsored by the grid
champions of the Pacific Eight
conference. Highlighting t h e
party will be a friendly game of
football. He even foresees plans
for it to be televised. Sounds
like a dream, doesn't it?
But who has a better right to
dream such dreams than the
man who thus far has played
such an important part in the
success of Michigan's Wolver-
ines on the gridiron.
FOR IT IS the little-known,
unpublicized Baumgartner who,

Baumgartner, called "Bomber"
by his teammates, wasn't always
interested in football, however.
In fact it took a good deal of
urging on the part of his mother
to get him started playing in
sixth grade.
At first, he confides, he did-
n't like it, but eventually he
learned to love the game, went
on to an excellent career as a
fullback at De LaSalle H i g h
School in Chicago. He subse-
quently won a scholarship to
Michigan, where he was im-
pressed by the friendly people,
the excellent academic oppor-
tunities, and the interested
coaching staff.
Thecoaching staff may be one
reason why Micligan has not
become a Wyoming. Baumgart-

gartner also lauds fullback Gar-
vie Craw's ability to constantly
throw the key block or make the
perfect play.
Looking to next year, Baum-
gartner, an economics major
graduating in December, hopes
to do some traveling in Cali-
fornia and Europe for a while
to do some thinking about his
future. He readily admits that
if the opportunity arose for him
to play professional football he
would jump at it. But he points
out that his size is not equal to
pro standards. Eventually
Baumgartner hopes to attend
grad school, tentatively at the
University of Illinois.
ANALYZING the outlook for
the Wolverines next season, he
looks for them to be stronger
than ever with the return of
nearly the entire offense and
most of the defense, the only
problem perhaps being the de-
fensive secondary. Concerning
his offensive guard position, he
predicts Reggie McKenzie, with
his great size and speed, to be
his successor.
In discussing rule changes, he
revealed that he would like to
see the Big Ten perhaps revise
their redshirt and traveling
team policies. Concerning recent
complaints lodged against some
of the referees' calls, he w a s
quick to point out that most of
them do an amazingly good job
under the circumstances.
