Vidmer, Gabler Continue QB Battle
Gophers Depend on
By GIL SAMBERG
There are problems and then
again there are problems.
Yesterday's scrimmage at the
Stadium made it clear that Bump
Elliott has one at quarterback
. the kind other coaches can
only dream about.
Dick Vidmer and Wally Gabler
are making a legitimate horsel
race out of their competition for'
first regular-season bruises this
"They were about equal today.
Both of them did a real good job,"
said Elliott after the pounding
was over yesterday. Although he
has been leaning towards Vidmer
thus far, he indicated that he
still couldn't commit himself on
who the starting field general
would be against North Carolina.
Both Vidmer (the sophomore)
and Gabler (the senior) gave him
what he has wanted all along,
sustained drives. Vidmer engineer-
ed scoring marches of 70 and 65
yards, while Gabler took com-
mand to bring the ball in from
53, 42, and 68 yards out. But scor-
ing was certainly not the point of
the practice, as a 28-man White
team made up of the Wolverines'
first offensive and defensive units
(in away dress) took on everyone
else in obviously unbalanced com-
bat, and pulled out a 60-7 win.
Vidmer took over quarterback-
ing duties initially and went 70
yards in eight plays - including
two 15-yard passes-ending with
fullback Dave Fisher plunging over
from the one.
With 30 seconds left in the quar-
ter Rick Sygar upped the total
with a 47-yard punt return but
missed on the point-after attempt.
Sygar, doing most of the place-
kicking for the Whites, again
showed that the Wolverines are
thus far lacking a strong field
goal threat. "We are a little short
on power," admitted Elliott. "Now,
Detwiler does have the power, but
practice has been shortened and
he hasn't had any time at all to
ping on the 19, Tim Radigan went
in for a stint at fullback for the
Whites. But he never got to touch
the ball on that first drive, as
Gabler fired two quick sideline
passes to Jack Clancy, hit Det-
wiler on the four, and rolled out
and then in for the score.
Vidmer went back in for the
16 yards in the typical dodging,
weaving style which is such a con-
trast to Gabler's.
Vidmer's last TD march ended
with an 18-yard run by Ward
during which the exciting junior
faked half Carl Legacki right onto
the grass by throwing his left arm
(holding the ball) out and then
cutting inside the defender. Ward
then side-stepped the safety on
the four-yard line and went in
Pullen Sees Action
Jeff Hoyne, so far the Wolver-
ines' top defensive end, saw limit-
ed play because of a shoulder in-
jury, and Tom Pullen, a 200-
pound soph from Ottawa, Canada,
emerged as the first alternate and
got plenty of the experience which
Elliott wanted for him. The third
man working at end is Rocky
"I was a little disappointed in
Rosema's play today," said El-
liott. "But he has been making
steady progress all week and he'll
improve with experience. The
other ends are pretty inexper-
ienced also, and we'll be checking
the films and grading each of
them to decide in what areas
Overall, Elliott expressed some
dissatisfaction, in that play wasn't
crisp enough. "We have some
ways to go on offense and de-
fense," he commented. "We did
get what we wanted out of this
scrimmage though, and that's
game experience. But we were de-
fending against our own style of
offense, and one of the problems
can be that the players know their
opponents too well.1
QUARTERBACK CANDIDATE Wally Gabler fights for extra
yardage in yesterday's scrimmage at Michigan Stadium. Con-
tending with Dick Vidmer for the starting role, Gabler scored
two touchdowns and completed five passes for 89 yards in the

Last year's surprise team, Min-
nesota, turned last place predic-
tions into a 5-4 record good for a
fourth-place tie with Illinois.
With a rambunctious crop of
sophomores to support star quar-
terback John Hankinson this year,
the Gophers could pull another
surprise and be a major contend-
er for the Big Ten title.
Thirteen-year veteran Murray
Warmath is the lone conference
coach committed to wholesale
platooning, mainly because of ne-
cessity, for returnees include 23
lettermen but only nine starters,
with gaping holes remaining at
center, guard, and halfback posi-
Brightest hope for Warmath is
Hankinson, the quarterback who
broke virtually every Gopher pass-
ing record as a junior last season.
With 78 completions out of an at-
tempted 138 passes, he ranks as
one of .the best passers ever for
Brown at End
Top receiver and senior end
Aaron Brown caught 27 of those
passes for another Gopher record.
His speed and power put him high
on pro scouts' lists.
Other lettermen receivers in-
clude Ken Last, Kent Kramer,
and Ray Whitlow. He scored the
winning TD against Purdue last
season, but he must make up a
scholastic deficiency to be eligible.
The strength of the traditional
Warmath defense (fourth in the
Big Ten last year as opposed to
ninth in offense) will give way to
a stronger offense due to the mass
and experience of the line.
Up front, playing the old fash-
ioned two-way football, Brown,
Last, Kramer, and senior letter-
man Bob Bruggers will all return
at end.Gale Gillingham and Don
Rosen started at tackle last year
and will probably retain the same
status this fall. Both centers
graduated, so Warmath switched
Chuck Killian from guard to the
In the backfield only one re-
turnee is available at each of the
slots other than quarterback.
Gopher halfbacks will platoon
with juniors Ray Whitlow, Dave
Coulburn, and Dick Peterson on
offense. Hubie Bryant and Stu
Maples will see duty on defense.
Letterman Maples returns after a
one year lay-off.
At fullback, Jerry Newsom will
get support from junior Joe Holm-
berg and John Williams, a sopho-
The big variable, which looks
notably optimistic this year, is
the sophomore contingent. Though
Warmath called the newcomers
only "average," Gopher followers
call them the best material for
Minnesota in years. Highly rated
rookie backs Hubie Bryant, John
Williams a n d Gordon Condo,
along with ends Bobby Lee and
Charles Sanders comprise the

work on it. I'd suppose that this
would be our next step, though."
Gabler took over in the second
quarter and climaxed his first set
of plays with a 26-yard TD run
which had so much blocking that
he trotted the distance easily.
After another drive stalled
when Fisher was called for clip-
third quarter and sparked a drive
which ended with a fumble by
Detwiler down at the 13, but
which gave the soph a chance to
show a little bit of everything.
Starting from his own 32, Vidmer
lateraled back to Ward, who out-
ran a couple of linebackers around
end and went for 20 yards.
The next two plays saw the
quarterback scramble for 19 and
