"We feel Goss will give a good
account of himself Saturday."
Hardy was one of a select group
of Michigan gridders who found
that spring is a valuable time for
something other than romance.
His hard work in the spring drills,
along with his continued improve-
ment this fall, has enabled him
to move from the third to first
team. "He's in the best condition
of his career, and has exhibited
constant hustle in the pre-season
practices," Fitzgerald pointed out.
Hardy's stand-in at right tac-
kle, Porter, missed a week of drills
because of an injury, but he should
see plenty of action Saturday.
Fitzgerald termed Hardy and Por-
ter "very close" at the tackle
slot. Porter is also available for
duty at middle guard.
"Porter's winning the NCAA
heavyweight wrestling champion-
ship as a sophomore gives evi-
dence to his prowess, competitive-
ness, and speed," Fitzgerald con-
tinued. The 240-pound junior
should prove valuable in pinning
opposing ball-carriers.
