'Winning Michigan in Championship Form..

.Agai

By DALE SIELAFF
Michigan is winning again.
Michigan has one starting
quarterback again.
Michigan is gaining on the
ground ..again.
Michigan's defense is as tough
as any in the Big Ten again.
After taking everything in '64,
the '65 Wolverines found them-
selves with a very tough act to
follow. And for the first six games,
it looked as if they might not
look like a. winner for the whole
year.
But in the last two weeks, the
offense has come alive, and the
defense is holding the opposition
as they did in the championship
season.
Coming off a 50-14 romp over
Wisconsin, Michigan faced an Il-
linois team Saturday that had won
three straight, including a 21-0
win over Purdue.
Easy Does It
At the end of the first half, it
wasn't much of a contest, with
Michigan leading 17-3.
'Speedster Carl Ward accounted
for the first two Michigan touch-
downs on a six-year swing pass
from Wally Gabler, and a one-
yard "jump" over tackle.
Rick Sygar kicked a 24-yard
field goal just before the half
to put the Illini too far down to
come back.
The Wolverines came right back

in the third quarter, and ground
out a 70-yard drive with Gabler
running the final four yards to
round out the scoring at 23-3.
Gabler has probably been the
big factor in the Michigan resurg-
ence. Platooning with Dick Vidmer
for the first three games, neither
Gabler or Vidmer seemed to be
able to generate much of an of-
fense.
Decision Reached
Then against Michigan State, as
Head Coach Bump Elliott says,
"We had pretty much decided on
Gabler as our quarterback, but
then he was injured. He had play-
ed well all season, and has been
doing a fine job."
Since the State game, with Gab-
ler at the helm, the Wolverines
lost to then undefeated Purdue,
17-15, in what many termed
Michigan's finest game of the
year. And against Minnesota, with
Gabler again in charge, Michigan

fell 14-13 on a missed two-point
conversion with less than two
minutes left in the game.
The Wisconsin game provided
the coming out for the Wolverines.
They snapped a four game losing
streak, and rolled their way with
Gabler running the squad until
the game was on ice.
Toast for Champaign
Saturday in Champaign, Gab-
ler accounted for 192 yards, 68 on
11 rushes and 124 on a 7-for-12
pass completion record.
Coach Elliott feels that the
switch to the single quarterback
was not the only reason for the
Michigan comeback, not by a long
shot, but he adds, "Wally gained
a lot of experience and confidence
through playing all the time, but
I don't think that's the only an-
swer to the two-quarterback, one-
quarterback question."
A lot of people think confidence
is the answer. Ask Earl Morrall.

Could the preseason high rating
have had anything to do with the
early slump of the Wolverines?
Elliott feels that it could have
made a difference, but adds, "It's
no great problem. We probably
tried too hard and were a little
tighter than normal. But now
we're not hurting ourselves like
we did before with our own mis-

takes. We're putting everything
together, and overall play has im-
proved."
It Showed
It showed against the Illini,
with Michigan leading in total
offense 423 yards to 254 for Il-
linois.
Fullback Dave Fisher, who had
been Michigan's workhorse and

top ground gainer for the past few
weeks, ran fakes into the line on
almost every first half play, with
the result that the other backs
enjoyed relatively easy going.
In the passing department,.Jack
Clancy added to his single season
receiving record by picking off
four from Gabier fore 64 yards.
all coming in the middle of first
half touchdown drives.
No Passing Zone
Michigan didn't pass in the
second half, and Elliott explained
his strategy by saying, "We ran
the first drive 70 yards for the
score, and we had' a few pass
plays called, but they came off as
runs, and they worked, so we stay-
ed on the ground."
The Illinois offense was missing
its top halfback Cyril Pinder due
to an injury and Jim Grabowski
played his usual game, rushing
for 95 yards, but without doing
any real damage. Elliott com-
mented, "We had two or three
different defenses for Grabowski,
because we felt we had to stop
his line smashes. We set up
against him, and while we didn't

stop him cold, he didn't hurt us." charged for three, but on third
Michigan showed its defense to down, Bob Mielke dropped Fred

with the Illini on the seven with to the ten, and Illinois' only pene-
first down. Rick Volk threw Sam tration deeper than the 38 ended
