Saturday, November 1 5, 1 969 THE MICHIGAN DAILY
By JOE MARKER
With visions of the Scarlet and
Gray from Columbus dancing in
their heads, Michigan could be
headed for trouble in its encounter
with Iowa today in Iowa City.
Although Coach Bo Schembech-
ler has termed today's encounter
"one of our toughest games," the
natural tendency would be for the
Wolverines to look past Iowa to
the clash with the top-ranked
Buckeyes a week hence. Such
thoughts could have dire conse-
quences for the team's Rose Bowl
chances, as Iowa, a young team
which has jelled in recent weeks,
is primed to douse the Pasadena
dreams of its opposition for the
second week in succession.
Just last week the upstart
Hawkeyes shattered Indiana with
a stunning 28-17 victory to end
the Hoosiers' aspirations.
If one looks at the compara-
tive record of the two teams, the
verdict would be heavily in Micn-
igan's favor. The Wolverines have
outscored their last three oppo-
nents-Minnesota, Wisconsin, and
Illinois - by a combined 107-16
margin, while Iowa has lost to
both Minnesota and Wisconsin.
However, in the Indiana game
last week, the Hawkeyes exhibited
something that hasn't been seen
in this section of the Midwest, in
quite a while-namely, a defensive
unit that can tighten up like a
bank treasurer's fist. As Coach
Ray Nagel relates, "Our defense
set up the last two touchdowns'
and contained Indiana's explosive
attack very well. We were especial-
ly tough on Indiana's passing
game, forcing Harry Gonso to fre-
quently run when he wanted to
This suddenly-surgent defensive
wall adds an unexpected dimen-
sion to today's clash, which on
the basis of statistics should be a
battle of two explosive offensive
Led by quarterback Larry Law-
rence, third in the conference in
total offense, the Hawkeyes gen-
erally don't have too much tiou-
ble scoring points. However, Law-
rence, who has passed for 1290
yards this season, will be throw-
ing into one of the conmerence's'
Michigan's primary goal in
stopping the Hawkeye attack will
be to shut off Kerry Reardon, who
gathers in the lion's share of Law-
rence's tosses. The value of Rear-
don and Lawrence in the lowa
attack was demonstrated last week
when Lawrence ran for one score

The spotlight on the Big Ten
will be focusing on Columbus,
Ohio, as the seemingly invincible
Buckeyes will attempt to extend
the nation's longest wining streak
to 23 games.
However, the assignment is
much rougher than usual as Ohio,
State will grapple with tenth-
ranked Mike Phipps and the
Boilermakers of Purdue.
Although Ohio State has not
budged from its top national rank-
ing all season, their opposition has
certainly not been the best. In
their first two non-conference
games, the Buckeyes romped over
Texas Christian, now 3-5, and
then Washington, which still has
not won a game. Then they took
on the bottom five teams in the
Big Terr. In all, Buckeye opponents
have compiled a 12-43-1 record
this season. So although the win-
ning scores have been impressive,
the opposition has not.
The last 4wo games of the sea-
son match Ohio State with the,
Boilermakers and Michigan, which
have a composite record of 13-3.
Actually, the Buckeyes are getting
their first real challenge of the
season in Purdue.
Phipps, the Boilermaker ace
quarterback and nation's total cf-
fense leader, has a personal score
to settle with Ohio State. A year
ago the situation was reversed as
Purdue was number one and Ohio
State played the part of the
spoiler. The Buckeyes won the
contest 13-0, and have held the
top spot ever since.
"They really messed my l-)es,'
Phipps recalled. "I was hit h'd cn
three straight plays. After th't.
I don't remember much."
Ohio State remembers Phipps,
though, especially from the 1967;
meting in which he comp'eted
21 of 31 passes for 210 yards -nd
two touchdowns in a 41-6 Pordtie
ronip. Three weeks later, the
Buckeyes started the 22-game
winning streak, which is still in-
"This man scares me," said 1ou
McCullough, OSU's d e f e n s i v e
coach. "In 21 years of coaching
I've never seen a better passe'."
A triumph for the 17-point un-
derdog Boilermakers could lump
Ohio State, Purdue, and Michigan
into a first-place tie at 5-1 each.
That would also put Purdue in ex-
cellent position for the Rose Bowl
bid, with Michigan the only other,

Irish may accept bowl bid;
Aaron checks into hospital
By The Associated Press
* SOUTH BEND, Ind. - There was a definite feeling around
the University of Notre Dame campus yesterday that if the football
Irish win their two remaining games and finish 8-1-1 they will accept
a bid to a post-season bowl.
Notre Dame President, The Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh said
he had become "more open minded" after opposing post-season
games throughout his 17 years as head of the Catholic school.
Edward "Moose" Krause, Notre Dame athletic director, said he
felt there was a possibility of an Irish bowl game but it would be up
to the board of trustees whenever Notre Dame gets an invitation.
! CHICAGO -- Atlanta Braves slugger Henry Aaron checked
into Michael Reese Hospital Thursday for an extensive examination
of a back ailment which plagued him throughout the 1969 season.
Aaron, who batted .300 and slammed 44 home runs for the
Western Division champions of the National League, said he entered
the hospital on the advice of Braves' president William Bartholomay.
* MINNEAPOLIS - ST. PAUL -- Bernie "Boom Boom" Geoffrion

the National Hockey League.

0 COLUMBIA, S.C. - Paul Dietzel, University of South Carolina
football coach and athletic director, says the White House has ap-
proached him about the pending opening as National Selective Serv-
ice director, but did not specifically offer him the job.
In any case, he said Thursday, "I have no intention of accepting
any other job. I have the job here in South.Carolina that I want."
The 49-year-old former Army and Louisiana State coach said
he told his squad before Thursday's practice about the approach "be-
cause I didn't want them hearing any rumors that weren't true."
The post is coming open with the retirement of Gen. Lewis B.
* NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Alfred Reese, III, 22, a linebacker and
kicking specialist at Tennessee State, was shot in the head during
an argument inthe university cafeteria Thursday.
Police said Reese claimed he did not know who shot him and
did not wish to prosecute. Officers closed the case. Reese was hos-
pitalized in fair condition.
Reese, brother of Wayne Reese who is Tennessee State's leading
ground gainer, had kicked 16 straight extra points until missing on
his 17th try against Morris Brown in Atlanta last Saturday.
