'M'-Illini, A Family

Affair

Czech Philharmonic
PARLIMENT RECORDS

By DAN OKRENT
For hundreds of years, countless
historians and psychologists have
recorded innumerable accounts of
sibling rivalries, those fantastically
fascinating relationships pitting
brother against brother.
Originally, Cain slew Abel. Since
then, Esau quarreled with Jacob,
Ptolemy XII bickered with XIV
(or was it XIV with XV?), and
the Karamazov boys, Aloysia and
what's-his-name, had something
of a hot time themselves. The
chroniclers of such affairs have,
in certain cases, devoted full life-
times to the interpretation of their'
pet studies. Not to be outdone by
such scholars, however, today's
PR men have found their own
rivalry in an equally famed, if not
more docile, brother act. Thus, for
the past five, years, nearly every
sports page in America has an-
nuslly devoted considerable line-
age to the battle of the Elliott
brothers, Bump and Pete. Here-
with is edition number six.
Bump and 'Pete Elliott-the
equally successful "Boy Wonder"
coaches of the Michigan Wolver-

ines and the Fighting Illini of
Illinois. Tomorrow, as the Maize
and Blue invade Champaign to,
battle the Illinoisans, the Elliottsl
will be meeting for the sixth
time on opposite sides of the field.
In the Old Days
Bump, 40, and Pete, 39, began
their careers together as high
school stars back in Bloomington,
Ill. After the post-war training
programs had Bump playing his
first year of varsity ball at Pur-
due, he rejoined his younger
brother in Ann Arbor in 1946. As
the Big Ten's MVP in '47, the
current Michigan mentor, along,
with his backfield-mate brother,
led the Wolverines to an undefeat-
ed season and a 49-0 Rose Bowl
triumph over the Trojans of
'Southern Cal.
The following year, quarterback
Pete engineered the team to an-
other undefeated year and, this
time, the national championship.
In 1949, both Elliotts were assis-
tants under Kip Taylor, another'
Michigandalum, at Oregon State.
From there, the brothers' paths
parted, eventually leading them
to their present positions, two of
the most coveted jobs in college
football, where the friendly rivalry
has been renewed annually.
Just Peachy
For Bump, the rivalry has been
fruitful, as he has coached the
Wolverines to five consecutive vic-
tories over Pete's Illini. Why the
success? Bump attributes it en-
tirely to "luck. We've won because
we've had the breaks," he says.
Does he enjoy the yearly face
off?
"Well, it's unusual looking
across the field and seeing Pete
there. I suppose that this, in a
way, makes the Illinois game a bit
sweeter." However, the - elder El-
liott is quick to point out that he
does not consider it a personal
battle. He emphasizes that the
game is a contest "between the
Michigan players and the Illinois
players, not between Pete and
Bump Elliott."

For sure, Elliott vs. Elliott is
not an example of animosity. Big
sister Margaret (Mrs. Frank Wil-
liamson), still of Bloomington, re-
assures this impression. "Even
though Bump has beaten Pete1
five times, there is no regret or
hard feelings anywhere in the
family."
Not Entirely
The Elliott clan, however, can-:
not be called entirely impartial..
Mrs. Williamson explains that
"being only fifty miles from
Champaign, we attend all the Il-
linois home games, and, conse-
quently, feel a bit more strongly
for the Illini than we do for
Michigan." But, she points out,
things are different when her two
brothers meet head on. "As a mat-
ter of fact," she says, "we feel
kind of silly clapping for both
sides, and we're hardly sad when
the game's over." Like all sisters,
Mrs. Williamson has a notable
streak of diplomacy.
Thusly, the battle continues, and
Wolverine boosters hope that
Bump and the Wolverines play;
Cain for the sixth time.j

By GRETCHEN TWIETMEYER
Behind every story, every great
thing that is ever accomplished,
there is a woman. Proof : ever
seen a movie without one?
And the Michigan football team
is no exception, even if they don't
allow females in the press box
or girl cheerleaders.
Her name is Mrs. Bump Elliott.
In direct~ contribution to the
team, Barbara Elliott offers little
in the form of secret plays and
advice, but compensates by mak-
ing a gallant effort to seduce fate.,
She has tried wearing all- sorts
of clothes combinations and lucky
pins. Best results to date have
come from three "lucky stones"
donated by her aunt, but even
they had to be disregarded this
year.
As a basic tenet of her prag-
matic philosophy, Mrs. Elliott as-
serts, "The more you know about
football,. the less you enjoy it."
She still enjoys it.
Still Exteiting
"I still get excited about every
game, .though I try to keep as
calm as possible." Keeping calm
for Barbara usually means a series
of isometric-like contortions, de-
signed to keep her outwardly com-
posed during exciting plays.
Though, she says, "they must not
be doing very much good because
I haven't even lost any weight
from them."
A faithful spectator, Mrs. Elliott
sits in a special section with the
other coaches' wives in Michigan
Stadium. Do they discuss the play-
to-play action? Hardly. But they
are quite good friends, and, hav-
ing a lot in commdn, often discuss
the games.
One of Barbara Elliott's biggest
gripes is the fans' reactions when
we lose. "They act like they think
the players deliberately try to
lose. Now\ we- have corrected our
earlier mistakes and just need
some breaks." Without a doubt,
she was overjoyed about last
week's game.
Crank Calls
A problem that confronts every
coach is crank phone calls and
letters. Mrs. Elliott thinks they
are a rather immature reaction,
but treats them philosophically.
The biggest problem is the chil-
dren, and they are never allowed
to answer the phone after bad
games. However, some of the calls
are humorous, and some people
feel ashamed of themselves and
call back to apologize.
She takes other trials of being
a football coach's wife in stride
Ui

too. Bump was hung in effigy in
1962, and naturally she felt bad
about it. But, as Bump said, "You
haven't really made it until you
have been hung in effigy."
The children, Bob, Bill and
Betsy, think it's wonderful that
their father is a football coach.
How many other parents would
take them to a Rose Bowl game?
And how many other boys have a
real-live coach to play football
with them, as Bump often does?
No Illusions
The Elliotts have no grand il-
lusions about their sons becoming
football stars or even basketball
heroes (they probaby won't have
the height, according.to their
mother), but Mrs. Elliott' def-
initely feels that sports should be
an important part of their lives.
They swim, bowl, play golf, and
(of course) football. In fact, Mrs.
Elliott recommends sports for
everyone, even if they aren't great
athletes( and she puts herself in
this category).
As for other great ambitions for
her children, Mrs. Elliott said that
she didn't particularly feel that
they should go to Michigan, be-
cause having such a well-known
father "would be hard on them.
But we. do think it is a great
school and hold it up to them as
an example."
Uneasy Situationt
One of the most uncomfortable
days of the year for the Elliotts
is the Michigan-Illinois game,
where brothers Pete and Bump
clash. "I never go to that game
because it is such a tense situa-
tion," Mrs. Elliott says.
"The Illinois game is always a
bigger thing for them than it is
for us, especially since we have

won our last six games with them.
However, family relations are nor-
mal the rest of the year."
The football season only lastsj
a few months, but Bump is kept
busy the rest of the year with
spring training, screening future
players, and making innumerable
speeches for high school, Rotary
Club and alumni banquets. That
keeps him away from home a lot,
especially between Thanksgiving
and Christmas, when he's gone!
almost every night. Mrs. Elliott
rarely goes with him, and follows
the same policy for away games,!
going only to important games
and coming back the same night.
"I feel I should stay home with
the children," she says.E
No Stay-at-Home
But Barbara Elliott is anything!
but a stay-at-home, do-nothing
wife. She always has some new
project. For the past few months,
it has been redecorating their
new home on Shadford. She also
loves to work with her hands,
attempting anything from sewing
to knitting to rug-hooking.
Mrs. Elliott majored in pre-
school education at Purdue, where,
incidentally, she met Bump while
he played football there during
Marine training. After graduating
she taught home economics for a
year and worked as a secretary be-
fore getting married.
As for the mystery question of
the year, where did Bump get his
appelation, the answer is an as-
tonishing "I-don't-know." Only
two things are certain: first that
he had it ever since his mother!
can remember, and second, that
it was not the consequence of a
bump on the head.
