They say that 86 years of ex-
perience hasn't changed football
tradition in Ann Arbor.
The king of Big Ten sports lives
on in all its spectacle. Long live
the king .and also thanks to
RCA for taking the time to de-
velop. television way back when.
Maize and Blue supporters couldn't
do much in the way of spectating.
if a game 'were played somewhere
like Chapel Hill, N.C.
By this its ninth decade of
competition, Michigan grid teams
have already left a trail of de-

DICK VIDMER

struetion in Dixie easily rivaling
that of another northern team
(the "Damn Yankees" as they
were known to Southerners)
coached by that all-time great,
Billy Tecumseh Sherman. His
team's famed ravaging of Geor-
gia -will, hopefully, also be dupli-
cated by Coach Bump Elliott's
Wolverines later this season.
'M' Unbeaten in South
In any case, Michigan elevens
have gone unbeaten over this
s. an in 19 battles with squads
from the Southland. The best the

Rebs have managed is a 0-0 tie
in 1922, which was engineered by
Vanderbilt.
"Football at Michigan means a
great tradition," said University
President Harlan Hatcher last
night. "I believe that in the Big
Ten-at the highest level of com-
petition-Michigan has not moved
away at all from the intended
amateur level because of an ath-
letic tradition which is a part of
the development of its students."
Game To Be Televised
Nobody figures tomorrow's away
opener, scheduled for live cover-
age on UHF Ch. 50 beginning at
1:20 p.m., to be any sort of milk
run or elaborate practice session.
The consensus is that this will be
as good an opening day test as
any the Blue could have had.
"I'm sorry that I can't be down
in North Carolina even now,"
Hatcher said. "We're certainly
looking forward to watching the
game on TV tomorrow, and we're
optimistic as to its outcome."
North Carolina's Tar Heels--1
the name comes from the observa-I
tions of one British general dur-1
ing the revolutionary war who no-!
ticed the stuff his barefoot op-
ponents usually tracked onto the
just spit-shined floors of- his of-1
fice-are unranked. But the Tar
Heels have made sure that Chapel
Hill has never been a home away
from home for anyone, and North1
Carolina fans are among the most1
enthusiastically loud and "active"
in the nation.
Common Foe
All the psychological drawbacks
of playing against each other were
finally gone when the Wolverines
started their final week of prac-
tice Monday. A common foe, which
Elliott had said would build an
intense desire among the players
and put the spirit and sharpness
back in their play, became the
order of the day, and some deci-
sions on positioning were made
more easily.
Dick Vidmer finally nailed down
the starting quarterback spot, and
Jack Clancy is listed at split end
opposite burly Steve Smith.
The rest of the backfield reads
as expected: Carl Ward, Jim Det-
wiler and Dave Fisher. There has
been, however, some speculation
as to Detwiler's physical condi-
tion, especially concerning his
knee. The junior halfback, a lefty
place kicker with power who might
see action in that department this
season, dressed for Wednesday's
practice but didn't participate, and
spent Thursday afternoon on the
training table.
Rosema Starts
Rocky Rosema succeeded in
making his switch to defensive
end good, and will start opposite
senior Jeff Hoyne. The foursome
up front on defense will be Paul
Johnson, Barry Dehlin, Bob Miel-
ke, and Bill Yearby.
Elliott has cited, inexperience,
partly because of a. shortened
practice schedule, as the real prob-
lem for his 1965 team. The Blue
will get that today, and the odds
are that a win will have to be as-
sured before any great amount of
switching will be made.
During a recent conference of
educators in Japan, Hatcher read
of the developments in football
back in Ann Arbor.

By LLOYD GRAFF
Acting Sports Editor
Special To The Daily
RALEIGH, N.C.-Howdy, y'all.
It's strange what Dixie will do
to you. Down here six hours, you
start talking like a dang Confed-
erate.
The Rebs down around here
have been mightly hospitable to
the Michigan entourage. Even had
four pretty lookers greet the team
as it disembarked in Raleigh.
But come kick-off time, these
Carolinians predict they'll be
mighty nasty. And one of these
Tar Heels, named Danny Talbott,
has a history of turning tough
Yankees into soft Southern mush..
Beware of Talbott
Last year a swaggering Michigan
State team ventured into Kenan
Stadium for its season opener.
Sophomore Talbott ripped State
apart with his snappy passing, and

all-America Ken Willard stomped
all over the Spartans. Carolina
won 21-15.
To the chagrin of Tar Heel fans
a few mean Louisiana State boys
roughed up Talbott in the third
game last season. Danny's two
broken ribs kept him out for the
rest of the year.
Talbott admirers call him a
scrambler the equal of a Fran
Tarkenton or a healthy Roger
Staubach. Glug.
Another thing he an do, by
the way, is quick kick. Look for
several of those.
Hot and Humid
Tar Heel fans are hitching their
hopes on two things, Talbott's
arm and the weather. In accents
thick as peanut butter, they drawl
on about the importance of the
bloody hot and humid, the Wol-
elements. They think if it gets
verines will melt into helpless

globs, while the Heels will thrive
like Jungle foliage.
Bump Elliott rejects this weath-
er wailing by tersely saying he is
not the slightest worried about
the elements.
The forecast, incidentally, is for
occasional showers with the tem-
perature between 84 and 90.
40,000 Expected
A crowd of 40,000 is expected to
tramp through the red Carolina
clay to watch the game. All but
900 will be screaming wildly for
the Heels, but many are not exact-

HALFBACK JIM DETWILER crashes through 'defenders for
extra yards in last Saturday's scrimmage at Michigan Stadium.
Detwiler and Carl Ward, both juniors and both lettermen,. are
expected to do much of the ground work for the Wolverines
this season.

Michigan ranked well up (second
behind Nebraska) in their selec-
tions. We're looking forward to
another successful season."
Last season alone, of course,
insured a tremendous jump of at-
tendance at Michigan Stadium on
coming Saturdays, and Hatcher
explained: "On a campus of this
size and pace, there is a natural
tendency towards alienation from
the group as a whole. A feeling of
not belonging follows from the be-
lief that such a huge group is not
and cannot be unified.
Feeling of Unity
"The fusion of a student body
of this size for even 60 minutes

on a Saturday so that there is a
feeling of unity is important. And
the benefits of viewing and parti-
spectacles in a complex modern
cipating in such great athletic
age-especially the relief - are
many."
And of the coming season: "I
have read and have been told that
Minnesota is the team that is sup-
posed to beat us this year. I think
that Prof. Elliott and Mr. Year=
by will do the job to take care
of them."
The "football semester" starts
this afternoon. As you may have
guessed, the professor's exams are
not written.

Purdue's seniors can recall, and
its juniors and sophomores have
been told, how Miami came out
of Ohio almost three years ago
and humbled a proud Boilermaker
team.
Miami is coming out of Ohio
again today. Purdue is proud
again-rated ninth in preseason
polls-but it shouldn't be over-
confident this time.
Purdue has the power to score
often. Holdovers include quarter-
backs Bob Griese, favorite receiver
Bob Hadrick, and the top rushers
of 1964, halfback Gordon Teter
and fullback Randy Minniear.
Oregon State, a Rose Bowl loser
last season, and Illinois, Rose
