What woud a football game look like if a TV camera was placed
in the ball? CBS, are you listening?
Has there ever been a coach who hasn't criticized his team if
he thought it was a good one, and unjustly praised it if he thought
it was a dud.
What's so fascinating about a boomerang and its citified cousin
the Frisby. Perhaps it appeals to a back to the womb fixation?
I wonder what Tom Wolfe's fourth grade English teacher thinks

How does somebody compose a crossword puzzle; much less

Stock car racing is the American equivalent of the bullfight.
Few -people care who wins a race. The thrill is in seeing the cars

Earl Morrall will not become another Y. A. Tittle because the

Within three years Cliff Richey will be the top amateur tennis

Michigan is fortunate not to play any of the service academy
football teams this season. More than the normal number of injuries
invariably occur in games with Army, Navy, or Air Force.
How Warren Giles could only suspend Juan Marichal for eight
days is a mystery. Marichal should have been banned for the rest
of the season. If he'd swung his bAt in the alley it would have been
a felony.
The average "1965 Michigan Freshman male has a haircut at
least one-third longer than the average Freshman of four years
ago. I attribute it to the Beatle influence.
Every football coach in the country will announce he is
"cautiously optimistic" about his team between now and the beginning
of the season.
Most college students are middle aged by the time they pick
up their diploma.
If Saks Fifth Avenue began promoting suspenders and eyepatches
as "in items," one third of the campus would be wearing them in
a month. Wouldn't suspenders look cool with wheat jeans?
With the lighting in the General Library reading room as it is,
if someone studied there four hours every night for one year, he
would undoubtedly go blind.
How would Yossarian react if he enrolled at Michigan? What
would he pull at registration?

By HOWARD KOHN
Being a fan of a highly ranked
college football team is not with-
out its drawbacks as several thou-
sand Michigan students have been
finding out the past few days.
Those martyr-type followers of
the defending' Big Ten champion
Wolverines have been standing
faithfully in line waiting to pur-
chase their season tickets at the
I-M Building in the annual mara-
thon for grid enthusiasts.
This year's queue reminded one
senior of the famous 1963 lines
for basketball tickets. Back in
those days, sports fans had to
spend a cold February night at
the corner of State and Hoover,
and stay warm by burning bundles
of hay.
Thefootball waiting lines, how-
ever, require no synthetic heat.
The large numbers of students
pushed togetherdin the hot humid
weather made deodorant a more
than needed commodity.
Yesterday, sophomores, or more
familiarly known as Group 2 in
the code system employed by the
athletic department, purchased
their tickets. They rapidly con-
sumed the remaining end-zone
seats and were keeping the fresh-
men in suspense as to where they
are going to sit when they pur-
chase their ducats today.
Tickets first went on sale Mon-
day but the line began Sunday
night. A trio of courageousumales
copped the honor of being the
kings of the line. They survived
nearly nine hours on the side-
walk with the help of a pair of
cots and suitable "provisions."
They took turns guarding their
positions at the head of the hu-
man chain throughout the wait.
One of the later arrivals strug-
gled into lineatd6:30 Monday
morning and bided his time for
three hours before obtaining his
prize ducats on the 35-yard line.
Also in the fierce competition
were members of the weaker sex.

One lovely coed I spoke with
claimed the experience was en-
joyable even though she missed
her first class, and suffered from
hunger pains after watching fel-
low ticket buyers munch on pic-
nic style breakfasts and pause for
impromptu coffee breaks.
"It wasn't the waiting in line
thatbothered me, it was the stam-
pede to get into the building, at
one point I thought I would never
see daylight again. But I guess it
was worth it," explained another
M' coed.

Another stalwart, noticing the supporters were of course not
