What kind of performance can
the Wolverines expect from an
opponent that looked so terrible
in last Saturday's game that their
coach felt it necessary to make a.
public apology to the student body
for the way his players looked on
the playing field?
The answer to this question will
be provided Saturday as Michigan
faces the Golden Bears of Cali-
fornia, looking more callow than
golden after the 48-6 drubbing
they suffered at the hands oz
number-one ranked Notre Dame.
Cal's coach, Ray Willsey, had
no compliments for his young and
inexperienced squad when the
devastating contest was finally
over. The California mentor, in
his second year as head of the
Golden Bears, described the action
When asked Saturday whether
his team would be able to bounce
back against the Wolverines this
week, Willsey replied, "We'll have
to do more than bounce back
against them. We'll have to
bounce up as well."
Michigan freshman coach Dan-
ny Fitzgerald, who scouted the
game Saturday for the Wolverines,
called California "a team in tran-
sition." As Fitzgerald explained,
"Willsey was a new coach last
year, and it was necessary for
him to continue with the offen-
sive style which had been develop-
ed for the talented California
quarterback, Craig Morton. With
Morton graduating last year, Will-
sey has switched to the type of
attack which he favors, an at-
tack centered basically around a
As an indication of the wide
effects of the changes made this
year by the Golden Bears with
the switch to emphasis on run-
ning, 14 of the 22 starters on the
offensive and defensive teams are

slated to see action in the offen-
sive backfield are also novices in
Fitzgerald feels that the tat-
tered Bears will provide on ade-
quate test for the Wolverines.
"They are still trying to find
themselves, but California will im-
prove rapidly with each game," he
"Last week's defeat was a big
blow to their pride," the freshman
coach continued. "The Wolverines
will have to play twice as well as
Notre Dame. did if they are going
to come anywhere near duplicat-
ing the point total."
The Golden Bears contributed
to their own downfall last week
by making several early miscues.
Notre Dame recovered fumbles on
the California 25-yard line and
the 12-yard line, quickly turning
the errors into touchdowns.
Then Cal failed to cover a punt
adequately and the Fighting Irisn
had a third touchdown. Last year,
the Bears were third in the nation
in punt return coverage, allowing
the opposition, just 4.2 yards Per
return, but inexperience has hurt
in this department, too.

Tom Relles, a senior who plays
wingback. Fitzgerald described
Relles as "a good tough runner,
not fast, but with quick lateral
motion." Relles gained 519 yards
rushing last season on what was
primarly a passing team, in addi-
tion to hauling in 30 passes.
Fitzgerald named Steve Radich
as the outstanding defensive back
for the Bears in their encounter
with Notre Dame. Radich, a sen-
ior, is a hard-hitting defensive
end. Ken Moulton, a defensive
halfback, is another standout
among the Golden Bear defenders.

in many areas, they still have

Cal's preference for the ground
game may be to Michigan's ad-
vantage. Against North Carolina

The Golden Bears also will en-
able the Wolverines to become ac-
customed to the slot-T formation,
which is very similar to the offen-
sive set-up employed by Georgia,
next on the Michigan schedule.
