TIME AND TIME AGAIN LAST FALL junior Dave Fisher suc-
ceeded on crucial third-down and short yardage situations for
the Wolverines. Fisher (above, left, in the Purdue game) will
return at fullback this fall. One of the candidates to join him

in the backfield-at quarterback-is Rick Volk (number 49,
above), who played mostly defense last year but has given up
baseball this spring to help sharpen his offensive, and defensive,
skills. And at one of the halfback slots, forming the nucleus for

the entire offense, will be two-time letterman Carl Ward (num-
ber 19 above), last year's team leader in rushing average. Ward,
who is also a sprinter on the track team, is the Wolverines'
biggest breakaway threat.

Practice: Grid Quiz Show

By HOWARD KOHN
' sSpring football practice.
In the army they call it boot
camp, where the musclebound drill
sergeants bark out the orders and
the recruits march up and down,
back arnd forth,; to the harshly
rhythmic tune.,Privates are al-
ways -mistake-prone, a half-step
" ahead "or behind, but time and
practice eventually mold them to
a franework of strict regimenta-
And when they're. through with
camp, they damn well know their
Insociology they call it sociali-
zatipn, in political science they
call it indoctrination, in college
i'sleaing and in sports it's
'spring training.
Spring football practice.
A Time To Teach
For head Coach Bump Elliott
and is staff of six assistants it's
time to teach the facts and the
tricks of the trade to 90 willing
football players.
The season still is six months
)t v hut ever since the Japa-
nese walked into Guatemala with
their eyes closed, Big Ten coaches
don't like to depend on just hope
and the rabbit's foot.
"There are so many 'if's' to our
team . . . but we'll try to answer
some of them in the next few
weeks,", remarked Elliott. "We're
out there to develop and improve
players so we can put together
two working units for next fall."
Nine Problems
Elliott's main concern is finding
replacements for the interior lines,
and especially at tackle. Michi-
gan's team, which managed only
a 2-5 conference record and a 4-6
mark overall last fall after win-
ning the Rose Bowl the year be-
fore, will inherit nine annual prob-
lems ; with the graduation of
tackles Tom Smith, Charley Kines
and Bill Yearby; guards Bill Keat-
ing (who sat out half the season
with an injury) and Dennis lan-
hagan; ends Steve Smith and Jeff
Hoyne; quarterback Wally Gabler
and center Tom Cecchini.
In all, that's five men off the
offense and four off the defense
-eight of them off the line.
"It's going to be a tough job to
fill up the holes. We're losing some
very good men, several of which'
have signed for big bonuses with
the pros. These are guys off our
championship team of two years
ago," Elliott pointed out. "And,
of course, we suffered a big blow┬░
at tackle."'
Th~. seems to be the biggest
"if," tlayer-wise, for the future
Who's going to be up front to
knock down the red-doggers and
protect the quarterback?
Three Lettermen Tackles
Three lettermen tackles, with
at least one year of training un-
der the belt, will be back. Junior
Bill Hardy and 'sophomores Paul
(Chief) Johnson and Ray Phillips
are top prospects for the role.
"But Peter Mair (sophomore)
and Jim Hribal junior) are also
trying out for the position, and
there are a couple of freshmen,
Dave Denzin and Bob Penska, who
have a chance for the job," ex-
plained Elliott. "And right now

we're switching Stan Broadnax
from guard to tackle to see how
he does. The jobs are definitely
up for grabs."
And so the teaching and learn-
ing process begins.
Backfield Questions, Too
But -while offensive line coach
Tony Mason barks out his orders
at the tackles and guards, offen-
sive backfield coach Hank Fonde
is organizing the men behind the
line. On paper, Fonde's task ap-
pears easier, but remember that it
looked easy on paper to' the Japs,
too.

is Jim (Kneeitis) Detwiler, the
man who played halfback with
Mel Anthony in Pasadena two sea-
sons ago and who played soli-
taire in Ann Arbor for most of
last fall.
He sat out one game and then
tried twice more before undergo-
ing surgery. The big 215-pounder.
who will be a senior in the fall,
has been exercising since the cast
came off in December, but he
will refrain from any direct work-
outs with the team this spring.
Barry Dehlin and Mike Bass,
two other starters sidelined by
"kneeitis" last fall; will also re-
main in sweat suits.
Gridders on 'Holiday'
Meanwhile, one of the backs
who subbed for Detwiler, Rick Sy-
gar, is also off the spring foot-
ball roster but is on the baseball
team, and his running mate, Carl
Ward, is on the track team. That
leaves Dave (The Bruiser) Fisher
returning starting fullback, and a
string of enterprising underlings
working out patterns with Fonde.
Several other gridders are also
having to forego spring practice to
avoid a schizophrenic complex,
including Doug Nelson, Jim Berline
and Jon Heffelfinger out for base-
ball and Paul D'Eramo out for
track.
But the training process con-.
tinues.
The other coaches for the other
positions have their own special-
ized methods and their own per-
sonalized tasks.I
Offensive end coach George1
Mans has the Wolverines' all-time
record pass receiver back in Jack
Clancy and a strong contender
for the other end slot in Tom

Pullen. Defensive end coach Jocko
Nelson has starter Rocky Rosema
back and a good prospect in Clayt
Wilhite returning.
In the Defensive Backfield.. .
Don James, who is in charge of
the defensive backfield, "may"
have a strong contingent next fall,
if . . . if Volk is not quarterback
and Sygar isn't an offensive half-
back. These two players could com-
bine with Bass to give James
three out of four starters back.
Dick Wells is the only' graduate
leaving the secondary.
The training started Monday
over at the State St. practice field
and will last four weeks through
April 16. A routine of drills has
been scheduled to include work
sessions three days a week-Tues-
day, Wednesday and Thursday-
and intrasquad scrimmages on
Saturday.
Trimester Causes Change
Michigan's two-year-old trimes-
ter system necessitates this early
start of spring practice in com-
parison to other Big Ten schools.
Weather hasn't been a problem
yet for Coach Elliott, but the early
scheduling has put an extra bur-
den on hisstaff which is still in-
volved in 'high school recruiting.
Tenders are not awarded until
April 1 and March is usually the
month for extensive last-minute
talks with possible recipients -of
the tenders.
And even this is part of the
teaching and learning system for
both the armed forces and for
sports. There must always be re-
cruits to train next year.

tions and answers.

Point number one is that quar-
terback Gabler is the lone grad-
uate from the starting backfield.
That's fact. Points number two
and three are that there is no
"Johnny Unitas protege" to step
in for Gabler and that halfback
Jim Detwiler has yet to test his
injured knee. Those are questions
--questions that may not be re-
solved until next September.
Working out at quarterback this
spring are sophomore Dick Vidmer
and John Thomas, and freshmen
Bob Keita andhDennis Brown.
Missing from the list is junior
Rick Volk, an integral variable in
the solution.
Volk in Running
Volk had a minor operation on
his knee after the 1965 season,
and is not yet doing any contact
work. Instead, he has been suiting
up in a sweat suit and concentrat-
ing on running and calisthenics.
"Vidmer has some experience,
gained from playing last fall at
quarterback, but Volk certainly
can't be counted out of the pic-
ture," commented Elliott. "We'll
have to wait and see."~
The other three candidates are
in the background of "wait and
see" picture. Thomas has been
around for a while (this is his
third spring), but has had his pre-
vious chances ruined by injuries.
Keita and Brown are the two top
signal-callers off the frosh squad.
