'M' Faces 'Poise' Problem, Mason Says
TEXAS RATED FIRST:
Michigan Falls from Top Ten
By HOWARD KOHN
Contrary to the old proverb that
says, . "Action will remove the
doubt that theory cannot solve,"
three weeks of football action at
Michigan have raised more ques-
tions, rather than answered the
Is Michigan capable of produc-
ing a championship team, or even
a winning team? Yes, according

opened, but after three lackluster'
performances the answer is not

surety in making a tackle or
catching a pass."
Mason also noted that, "No team

the one that took away a first
quarter touchdown against Geor-
gia, plus fumbles and pass inter-
ceptions have been our biggest
Costly Boo Boo
In the Georgia game, Michigan
was penalized only 51 yards and
lost only one fumble. but the
fumble stopped an offensive drive
in Georgia territory as did two of
the penalties. Michigan. outpassed
and outrushed the Bulldogs in the
first half, but managed only a
one-point lead by intermission.
"In the second half, Georgia
was the better team," admitted
Mason, "but I'd like to play them
for a living instead of the Big Ten
teams." The consensus seems to
be that Georgia was not that ex-
ceptional, but that Michigan was
even less so.
