Michigan Faces





"Michigan is capable of beat-
ing our brains out."
This was Minnesota coach Mur-
1"y Warmath's analysis of the
situation via long distance tele-
phone last night.
-,But the comment is really not
news to any Michigan fan, player,
or coach. All season long, the
Wolverines have been a team high
in potential. But the great white
scheduler upstairs fouled them up,
and they have played three na-
tionally ranked teams in a row,
dropping all three but still main-
taining respect among football ex-
perts. (The Wolverines are rated
15th in the country by one major
wire service poll, and "received
votes" in the other.)
Bad Team?
-Today Michigan plays a "bad"
team, probably the worst they
have faced all year. This is the
game they cannot afford to lose.
The Wolverines have based their
criteria for a successful season on
winning all of the remaining five
A win might mean very little in
the eyes of general observers. But
it would be a start and no small
one at that. Minnesota is a tradi-'
tional rival in the deepest sense.
The Little Brown Jug .is 62 years
old and the most famous football
prize in the nation.
The Winner
Furthermore, Michigan has to
show today that it can win with
Wally Gabler at the helm. Not
that Gabler is a "loser," but last
peek was the first time that .e
was given full command of the
squad, and he lost-in a credible
Airing the Gamte
Fisor the fan remaining at
homge, the essentials of this af-
ternoon's contest are as fol-
lows: Kickoff is 2:30 p.m. Ann
Arbor time. The game will not
be televised live but will be
aired at 1 p.m. tonight. Radio
broadcasts will be heard live,
beginning generally at 2:15.
Transmitting stations include
Ann. Arbor, and WWJ of De-
performance against a credible
foe. Today Wally has to win.
Also under a critical eye is the
Wolverine defensive unit. Yearby
and company turned in an out-
standing performance last .week
against Purdue, but Griese's arm
and toe were just too good for all
of Michigan's pounds. Today the
defense, minus Dick Wells, is on
trial against another great passer
who looks to a flock of hundred-
mile-an-hour ends. But today a
two point loss will not be satis-
In the Thick
If the Wolverines face a "must"
game, it is no less of a challenge
for their opponents. The Golden
Gophers are in the thick of the
Big Ten championship race. After
a tie and two losses in non-con-
ference games, they have reversed
their footing and defeated Indiana
and Iowa handily. "But neither of
those two teams is in a class with

wiler, Dehlin, and Keating.)
Rick Volk will switch to Wells''
defensive safety position and
sophomore Ernie Sharpe, who
hasn't played defense this season,
will move in at Volk's halfback
spot. Mike Bass remains at the
other defensive halfback position.
Detwiler's permanent replace-
ment apparently is Rick Sygar.
Sygar, however, might be called
on for defensive duties, in the
event that Ernie is not as sharp
as expected. In this case, John
Rowser would be used on offense.
Question Is Yearby
Tackle Bill Yearby who suffer-
ed a pinched nerve during prac-
tice this week, was termed a
"questionmark" by Elliott Thurs-

Michigan," points out Warmath.
"Our boys know what this
game means. We'd like to get that
Brown Jug back and we treatl
any game as a must. We feel that:
Michigan is the best football team
we've played all year. I and all of
my boys have the utmost' respect
for them. At the moment we're
not harboring any false dreams
about a Rose Bowl trip. But we're
looking for a win anytime we take
the field."
Physically, both Minnesota and
Michigan are feeling the effects of
the roughness of the sport. But
Warmath feels that his squad is
"beginning to approach the level
of condition that we were in be-
fore the season started."
Aaron Brown, an All-America
end candidate who aspires to be-
come a social psychologist is back
and ready to go. Brown missed
two games due to a broken jaw,
but returned last week to see lim-
ited defensive action against Iowa.
"Brown is okay, and can be used
on offense or defense-whatever
is necessary," said Warmath. The
coach didn't indicate which unit
Brown would start on.
Brown's Cathexis
Before his injury the flashy
Brown caught five passes, good for
78 yards. Last season he received
27 for 267 yards, the former fig-
ure a Minnesota record. The ob-
ject of psychologist Brown's ca-
thexis today will be a re-establish-
ment of his offensive reputation
against the rough, though slightly
crippled, Wolverine secondary.
Warmath was not as willing to
comment on the status of his
other offensive standout, Hubie
Bryant. Bryant, is a sophomore.
halfback who gained 141 yards in
the Gophers' first five games.
Bryant suffered a severe ankle
sprain against Iowa last week and
was placed on the "doubtful" list.
Keep a Secret.
If Bryant sits it out, his replace-
ment will be Dave Colburn, a jun-
ior who, in the words of Minne-
sota publicity director Otis Dyp-
wick, "has a secret ambition of
becoming a pro football player."
Colburn will have a chance to pro-
vide support for his no longer sec-
ret ambition today.
Other Minnesota casualties are
regarded as "recovered" by War-
math. These include reserve ends
John Rajala and Chet Anderson,
center Chuck Killian, and back-
up fullback John Williams.
"There were times when a doz-
en of our boys were walking crip-
ples," says Warmath. "Hopefully
those days are past."
List of Casualties
On the Michigan casualty list,

four of Bump Elliott's original
starting 22 are lost to the team.
Wells is the latest addition, but
he may return to the line-up
against Wisconsin. (Permanently
out of action are the Messrs. Det-

day. But Elliott is known for his
pessimism and most sources in-
dicate that Yearby is in "play-
able" shape.
Elliott said that Michigan did
not place any special emphasis on !
pass defense this past week. "No 1
more than usual. We know that
John Hankinson is a fine passer,
but Minnesota also has an excel-
lent running game. I think the
extent to which they use a run-
ning attack will depend on how
successful their passing game is."
In terms of total yardage, run-
ning and passing have played al-
most even roles in the Minnesota
attack this season. The Gophers
have picked up 693 yards on the
ground while Hankinson h a s
thrown for an additional 618.
Junior fullback Joel Holmberg
has accounted for 220 rushing
yards on 56 carries, while end
Kent Kramer leads in air totals
with 216 yards from 17 receptions.
The Hard Way
Hankinson himself has demon-
strated the ability to run' when
necessary, and has, picked up 111
yards the hard way.
Warmath is known to reporters
and coaches as a football "per-
fectionist." He was asked if felt
his team was in "perfect readi-
ness" for this afternoon's game.
"We'll we're not in perfect phy-
sical condition, obviously. Bryant
is not 100 per cent and several
others are just comning back from
injuries. But considering all things,
I would say that we are in as per-
fect a state of readiness as is

that the three straight losses'had

Purdue Battles MSU in Crucial Conference Match

By The Associated Press
LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The out-
come of the Michigan State-Pur-
due football game today may
hinge on the ability of Purdue's
offensive line to hold the Spartan
defensive blitz long enough for
Bob Griese to get off his passes.
The winner will take a long
stride toward the Big Ten cham-
pionship and high national rat-
ing. Both are undefeated and un-
tied in conference play, although
Purdue has .a non-conference tie
with Southern Methodist on its
record. Michigan State currently
is No. 2 and Purdue No. 6 in the
Associated Press national rank-
Griese's protectors will be giv-
ing away an average of 18 pounds
per man. They weigh in at 215,
compared with 233 for the Spar-
tan defenders.
Going the other way the aver-
ages are identical-220 pounds for
both the Michigan State offensive
line and the Purdue defenders.
No. 1 and No. 2
Griese leads the Big Ten in
passing, with Michigan State's

Steve Juday second, but Juday
leads in total offense with Griese
In all games, Griese has com-
pleted 88 of 133 passes for 1,111
yards and nine touchdowns with
four interceptions. On the ground,
he has netted only 40 yards in 54
carries, and for two Big Ten
games he is minus 29 yards.
Juday has completed 50 of 88
passes for 628 yards and two
touchdowns, with two intercep-
tions. He has kept the ball 33
times for a net of 101 yards.
Advantages .
Griese has an adv'antage in that
all of Purdue's first-string backs
and ends are capable receivers..
Juday has done most of his throw-
ing to end Gene Washington and
halfback Clint Jones.
Purdue almost certainly will
have to travel by air. Its ground
games has been unspectacular,
with halfback Gordon Teter aver-
aging 3.6 yards per carry and
fullback Randy Minniear 3.5. They
will be running against a Spartan
defense which held Michigan and
Ohio State to minus yardage on
the ground.

Michigan State's rushing game been below par since a rib injury
has produced averages of 6.2 yards in the loss to Purdue.

Irish Rematch USC
SOUTH BEND, Ind.-Revenge-
fired Notre Dame tackles unde-
feated, once-tied Southern Cali-
fornia today in a nationally tele-
vised showdown for college foot-
ball prestige.
The renewal of a venerable in-
tersectional rivalry born in 1926
finds the once-beaten Fighting
Irish a one-touchdown favorite
over USC's Trojans, who rank:
three notches higher in the Asso-
ciated Press national poll.
Southern California, winner of
four straight since an opening
20-20 tie with Minnesota, is No. 4
'in the AP poll. Notre Dame, upset
by powerful Purdue 25-21 in its
second game, has a 3-1 record
and rates No. 7.
A partisan crowd of 59,000,
capacity sellout since Aug. 2, ex-
pects to see the Irish throttle
USC's brilliant halfback, Mike
Garrett, and avenge a-20-17 set-
back last season which ruined
Notre Dame's bid for a perfect
10-0 season.
Garrett is the man the Irish
must stop, although even swifter
halfback Rod Sherman, who grab-
bed a 15-yard scoring pass which
ended Notre Dame's 1964 win
streak, also is back.
The 5-foot-9, 189-pound Gar-
rett is the nation's top major col-
lege ground gainer with 852 yards
on 150 carries-an average of 30
hauls and 170.4 yards per game.
Up and UP
Since ripping 146 yards in the
USC opening tie with Minnesota,
Garrett has upped his rambling
in every one of four straight Tro-
jan victories, gaining 205 in last
Saturday's 14-0 blanking of Stan-
After four games, the Irish still
lack an established quarterback
with senior Bill Zloch and soph
Tom Schoen scheduled to alter-
nate against the Trojans.
Schoen is the better passer, but
his 7-for-11 completion record
must compare with a 34-for-56
mark by USC quarterback Troy
Winslow, who has connected for
four touchdowns.
Notre Dame's counter to Gar-
rett is halfback Bill Wolski, who
has averaged 5.3 yards per carry
against the much busier Garrett's
5.7. But the Irish work horse has

LINCOLN, Neb. - Third-ranked
Nebraska, the nation's- highest
scoring football team, collides to-
day with a Colorado team which
has permitted opponents only 28
points in five games.
The Cornhuskers, seeking a
third straight Big Eight crown,
will be favored to rack up win No.
6 of the season in the homecom-
ing clash.
Game of Averages
But undefeated-although twice
tied-Colorado has been tough to
score against. The 5.6 point aver-
age per game allowed opponents
by Colorado ranks second only to
the 4.0 point average permitted by
Nebraska, while averaging 36.6
points per game, also has been
less than generous to opponents,
allowing only 31 points in five
games for a 6.2 average.
Test of Figures
Nebraska Coach Bob Devaney
said Colorado will provide the
sternest', test of the year for his
team, but Nebraska leads the
country in rushing offense with a
293-yard average, ranks second in
total offense on a 424-yard aver-
age, rates seventh in total defense
and ninth in rushing defense.
Score comparisons also favor
Nebraska. Colorado tied Wiscon-
sin and Iowa State, but Nebraska,
beat these teams 37-0 and 44-0,
In 23 meetings since 1898, Ne-
braska has won 12, Colorado 10,
and one game was tied.

Porkers Out for 18th
LITTLE ROCK - Top-ranked
Arkansas seeks its 18th cohsecu-
tive football victory here tonight
against upset-minded North Texas.
The Razorbacks climbed from
third to the top of the Associated
Press poll this week after tripping
Texas 27-24 last Saturday in a
come-from-behind thriller.
But the Eagles are not letting
Arkansas' speed and press notices
affect their attitude.
"We realize they're a great,
great team," says Odus Mitchell,
coach of the Eagles. However, he
said he thinks his team is ready
to play the Porkers.
While Arkansas has rolled up 17
straight victories - the longest
major college winning string in
the nation-the Eagles have ex-
perienced one of the worst streaks
in their history. North Texas has
won only four of its last 17 out-
North Texas gave Tulsa a scare
last week when a last-minute pass
fell just out of flanker John
Love's hands in-the Tulsa end
zone. 'Tulsa won 27-20.
Eagles Hit Sky
Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles
says he expects to see quite a bit
of passing by the Eagles.
Vidal Carlin, . a junior college
transfer, set a school record last
week when he hit on 22 of 48
passes for 289 yards and two
touchdowns. Love caught 10 of
those, giving him 36 receptions
for 533 yards this year.

Coach Warmath, in an amiable
mood despite the fact that his
dinner was interrupted by this
reporter's inquisitiveness, reports
that the weather forecast in the
Twin Cities, has "clear. skies and
warm temperatures" tapped for
this afternoon. "Its a little cloudy
out there now though," he added.

Football, Computers,
And the Cochs ife'
The days of fire-em-up, Rockneish, Hayes-like, blood, sweat, and
beers football coaches are numbered. In perhaps ten years the
humanity in football coaching will be more passe than stained steel
blades, fattening cola, and uncharred draft cards.
You know what's doing it. Yep, that old villain again with the
sneering transistors, the computer.
Already at Princeton the Monday morning quarterback is a
programmed computer not a fuming alum. The Tigers haven't lost
in two years, the same period they've been using the tape spew-
ing monster to second-guess the Saturday showings.
With refinements in computer science proliferating faster than
GIs in Viet. Nam, I predict that within ten years a computer will be
appointed a college coach, and perhaps crusading Michigan will be
the first.
The ramifications of a nerveless, gutless, transistorized coach are
manifold. The computer coach would necessitate innumerable changes
in football ritual.
First of all, the recruiting process would be altered. Can you
imagine a computer walking into some hotshot prospect's home, trying
to sell the kid on the "Michigan spirit." How could an IBM machine
get euphoric about the dentistry school or the engineering labs or
even the football stadium. That kind of malarkey doesn't exactly
fire-up a machine.
And what about the banquet circle. Envision a computer at
a head table telling clean old jokes and oozing wholesome image.
Doesn't quite cut the mustard. Consider a computer eating, for
that matter.
And how would it handle the press, perhaps the most important
function of a coach. A computer couldn't be evasive and would be
much too honest to say that every one of his players is a "fine boy
with wonderful determination, and a real hard worker." The in-
nocent computer would probably say something like this about his
star halfback: "Magnificent natural ability, but such a loafer. He
was cut out to be a beachcomber, not a blocker."
Andl what wonld th nmnutes dn at nen ralliet .Can you really
