Experience elping Michigan Solve Problems

DETHRONES TEXAS:
Arkansas Finally Best
In Collegiate Grid Poll

By HOWARD KOHN
When will potential ability eq'ual
kinetic action on the gridiron for
Michigan?
That mystifying equation com-
plete with N-number or maybe
M-number of variables and hypo-
thetical theories may have finally
been solved for those wondering
about the Wolverine football team.
Head coach Bump Elliott term-
ed last week's two-point defeat at
the hands of Purdue "an extreme-'
ly disappointing loss" in the wake
of the commendable performance
of the team. The concensus of the

coaches seems to be that Michigan
is now a team that has jelled both
on offense and defense.
"The players are beginning to
realize their potential and operate
as a coordinated unit," enthused
Dennis Fitzgerald,, f r e s h m a n
coach.
Stubborn Pride
"The attitude of the team is one
of stubborn pride-daring anyone
to beat us," continued Fitzgerald,
"we feel that we can provide
formidable opposition to /every
team on our schedule. We will be
going into each game with our

chin ou-defying anyone to hit
us.
"The ambition of Michigan for
the season is now a 7-3 record.
The morale of the team is high
despite its three straight defeats."
Michigan, with a crusading red-
dog defense and a creditable of-
fense, nearly put that last loss
into the victory column last Satur-
day before succumbing to the ver-
satility of one Bob Griese.
Well Done
"The defense did a fine job in
containing the diversified attack
of Purdue and was especially ef-
fective in. putting pressure on
Griese," praised Elliott.
The Wolverine line stopped the
Boilermaker ground game the way
Listerine stops bad breath, limit-
ing their backs to 27 yards in 30
carries. And in the first half, be-
fore Griese's famed second-half
heroics, the pass defense held the
vaunted Boilermaker quarterback
to only 96 yards through the air.
"It is very difficult to defend
against a team like Purdue with
its constant running threat and
its fantastic passing game," ex-
plained Fitzgerald. "In fact, the
best way to stop a guy like Griese
is to trip him in the locker room."
Bob's Twins
Michigan double teamed Griese's
favorite target, end Bob Hadrick,
only to watch flankerback Jim
Finley snare 11 aerials for 159
yards and erase Hadrick's pass
reception team record for a single
game. Hadrick hauled in only
three of Griese's specialties
against Michigan.
Rick Volk, in his second year
as a first-string defensive back for
the Wolverines, was cited: for his
work in guarding Hadrick by the
fast-stepping Purdue end himself.
"He (Volk) was probably the

By The Associated-Press
Arkansas coach Frank Broyles
said his team would never be rated
number one unless every other'
team in the country had lost two
games.
The experts have proven du-
bious about Broyles' Razorbacks,
but the Porkers have finally climb-
ed into the coveted, number one
spot in the latest Associated Press
poll which finds every team 'in a
different position than last week.
Arkansas moved into the num-
ber one position following their
27-24 whipping of Texas.
Also moving upwards were the
surprising Michigan State Spar-
tans who walloped Ohio State.
MSU scooted past Nebraska and
moved into the runner-up spot.
The Cornhuskers, thus dropped
one place into third despite an
overwhelming 41-0 victory over
Kansas State. This leaves coach
Bob Devaney in a position of pick-
ing up Broyles' now obsolete' mor-
dant refrain.
USC Fourth
Moving down the line, Southern
Cal is nestled in fourth place,
with an unblemished record aside
from an opening game 20-20 tie
against next week's Michigan op-
ponent, Minnesota.
Texas dropped from first to
fifth, and following the Longhorns

is Purdue. The Boilermakers ac-
tually moved up a spot despite
their squeaker 17-15 win over the
Wolverines.
Notre Dame, which has been
rolling along since their defeat to
Purdue, is right behind in seventh.
Florida is eighth and newcomer
Louisiana State is ninth.
Closing out the top ten is an-
other Michigan opponent, Georgia.
Arkansas' win over Texas was
the featured game of the week and
the second straight year that the
Razorbacks have won the classic
* battle. After last year's triumph,
Arkansas never did earn the num-
ber one rating and finished the
season in the second spot despite
a perfect 10-0 record.
Michigan was among other
teams receiving votes and was
ranked 15th - in the other wire
service poll.

9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 basis and first

FUTILE CHASE AND exasperated amazement are the feeble weapons Purdue can muster as Carl
Ward sprints toward the end zone on his 17-yard touchdown. The play was one of the highlights of
the afternoon for Michigan fans. At the time, the scoring jaunt brought the Wolverines to an early
6-0 lead.

Boilermaker line, upsetting the polished quarterback and causing
his pass to go awry.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn.-Tennessee
canceled football practice yester-
day because of the deaths of as-
sistant coaches Bill Majors and
Bob Jones in a car-train collision,.

plans for th remainder of the
week were uncertain.
There also was the possibility
that Saturday's Tennessee -Hous-
ton game here will be canceled.
Athletic Director Bob Woodruff
said a decision will be made later
in the week.
Dickey and his aides were too
stunned by the deaiths and the
injury suffered by another assist-
ant, Charles Rash, to discuss fu-
ture staff plans.

toughesit man I've played against
all year," said Hadrick after the
game.
Gruff Artist
Volk, in addition to knocking
the ball to the ground, was quite
active in the art of tackling with a
game-leading total of eight. His
efforts Saturday gave him the
team lead in defensive-play par-
ticipation with 33 tackles and 14
assists. (Linebacker Frank Nunley
is second with 34 tackles and 10
assists.)
Volk also picked off the fifth
pass interception of the year for
the Wolverines against the Boiler-
makers as the pattern of "do-it-
yourself" breaks took a turn for
the better for Michigan. For the
first time in five games, the Wol-
verines neither fumbled the ball
nor had an errant aerial fall into
enemy hands. At the same time,
they captured a touchdown-
stimulating bobble and snagged
that one wayward Griese pass.
Gabler's Game
Another first for Michigan was
Wally Gabler's appearance at the
signal-caller's position for an en-
tire game. Gabler, a senior, start-
ed his second game at quarterback
after taking' a backseat to sopho-
more Dick Vidmer for most of the
year.
Completing nine out of 28 at-
tempts in the air, Gabler directed
the Wolverines to two touchdowns,
a field goal and three other scor-
ing opportunities. Elliott indicated
that his "fine job" has earned him

the starting assignment against,
Minnesota this week.
Along with Gabler at the helm
of the offensive backfield= "ship"
will be shipmates Carl Ward, Dave
Fisher, Rick Sygar and/or John
Rowser. Depth in the rushing at-
tack is one of the main deficien-
cies of the team since the lossof
Jim Detwiler.
Sygar Eager
Rick Sygar, who triples as a
defensive back and a field-goal
kicker, was employed by Elliott
to replace Detwiler at halfback
opposite-Ward to start the Purdue
contest. Rowser, however, alter-
nated with Sygar throughout the
afternoon. The two ran with the
pigskin only five times between
them.
Most of the workhorse chores
went to fullback Fisher who car-
ried the ball 21 times for 89
yards averaging 4.2 per try. His
bulldogging charges were largely
responsible for Michigan's edge
over Purdue in first downs, 22-19,
as he delivered on several third
down situations.
Detwiler Missed
Detwiler, out for the season with
a knee injury, was admittedly
missed, though, by the Wolverines.
Fitzgerald pointed out that "any
time a team loses a first-string
player, and especially one like Det-
wiler, it loses a leader. We have
some good backs to take his place,
but everyone can feel that some
of the spirit is missing."
Fitzgerald offered the list of
Michigan cripplings as an "ex-

planation, not an excuse" for its
won-lost condition which has
dropped below .500 for the first
time since the 1963 season. "A
winning Big Ten team usually has
a minimum of injuries, and Mich-
igan this year has certainly had
more than its share."
The latest addition to the grow-
ing catalogue of therapeutic-
seeking knee hobblers was Dick
Wells, a member of the defensive
secondary who suffered a torn
ligament midway through the first
half Saturday. Team doctors re-
ported that he was responding to
treatment and that he should be
back on the practice field by the
middle of the week.
