SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1965

Michigan reacted like a half-
dead veteran fighter in the fif-
teenth round who kfiows he must
score a knockout if he's to win.
Coach Bump Elliott sent in Wally
Gabler who had languished on
the bench daring the second half
recovering from a wallop on the

Clancy, of course, is Jack Clancy,

Gabler popped three beauties to
the Jack of Michigan's heart,
moving the ball to the Ohio State
33, but then the Scarlet and Gray
(aren't those hideous colors)
swamped Wally and Michigan.
The gruesome linemen like Ike
Kelley and Doug Van Horn got
awfully naggish and started grab-
bing at Gabler's arms, legs, and
helmet forcing him to throw from
positions quite unbecoming a
quarterback. Not surprisingly his
aim was off on three straight.
One-Sixth of a Minute
With ten seconds left, Elliott
tossed Paul D'Eramo into the fray
with instructions to kick the ball
as far as he could and hope hard,
Toe, hope and favoring wind
couldn't defeat the laws of physics,
much less Ohio State.
So much for play. I know it's a
bit boring because you've read the
same kind of sickening story sev-
eral other times this season,
Georgia, Purdue, Minnesota. You
want to know a secret? This kind
of sob story gets meaner to write
each time, too.
Rather than dwelling upon yes-
terday's punt, pass, and kick -con-
test between the neighboring an-
tagonists I'm going to throw in a
few comments about the entire
Michigan football season while it's
still a warm corpse in our mem-
Trite and alibi-ish as it may
sound, injuries wounded Michigan
sorely. Jim Detwiler was an All-
American halfback. He played one
healthy half against North Car-
olina. Barry Dehlin was a solid
guard and Bill Keating might have
been an exceptional one.
Secondly, Michigan was groping
for a quarterback for a third of a
season, Wally Gabler finally won
the position but had only two or
three outstanding games. With
another year of experience he
might have been one of the better
signal callers in the country, but
And finally, Michigan never
built momentum this season. The
Wolverines struggled past two
patsies in North Carolina and
California so the victories never
meant much. Georgia, a better
than average team beat them at
home. Michigan State's mashing
sucked the wind out of Michigan.
They came back surprisingly well
against Purdue and still lost in the
most aggravating fashion. Min-
nesota, no great power, won a
chintzy game on a missed two-
For consolation Michigan mur-
dered a Wisconsin team that hard-
ly belonged in the conference, and
then played a superb game at
Illinois, unquestionably the best
of the year. Last week's debacle
at Evanston and yesterday's hand
slammer left an ashen taste for
all. It was an ashen season.

LAS VEGAS-Unbeaten cham-

heavyweight title on the line for
the second time tomorrow night,
this one against former two-time
4 champion Floyd Patterson in a
match billed for 15 rounds-or

incidentally is a showcase for even
better things, at 10 p.m., EST.

The promoters, Inter-continental
Promotions Inc., and the local
Silver State Boxing Club, hope
for a live gate of $300,000.
Total revenue, they say, may fall
short of the record $4.8 million
for the first Clay-Sonny Liston
thing in Miami, Fla., in 1964,
which still isn't a bad record to
fall short of.
Whatever the loot, Ali Cassius
gets 40 per cent and Patterson 20.
Both should be happy, and their
followers should be so lucky.
Clay, as you might suspect, is
the favorite. He is undefeated in
21 professional bouts, and has
knocked out 17, including Liston
twice when he won the title and
Patterson, now 30, seven years
older than Clay, has had 48 bouts
since his debut as a pro in 1952,
won 44 and lost four. Patterson
has won five fights in a roW in
the last two years over such op-
ponents as Santo Amonti, Eddie
Machen, Charlie Powell, George
Chuvalo and Tod Herring.
