The Sociology of
Just who does go to the football games?
The answer is not scandalous; but the classifications which the
spectators at Michigan football games fall into is nonetheless inter-
First and foremost, and, probably dullest as well, is the average
student. Some "fire-up" for the game, but most don't get too
excited, really. If you are one, you know what I'm talking about.
It's nice and all if 'the Blue' pull it out, but if they don't, you're
not going to jump off South Quad either.
The average Freshman is a slightly more interesting phenomena
because he brings the most beautiful but least intelligent girl that he
can find and sits smack in the middle of his drooling quaddie house-
mates. Meanwhile, his poor roomhate who has been skillfully man-
euvered out of a "block" ticket, will be caught smack in the middle
of a bunch of ignorant South Quad girls, who don't know Carl Ward
from-Bill Revelli.
Which brings up the Band. It would not be good to take the
percentage of bandsmen in attendance today and from this draw con-
clusions about fabulous numbers of aspiring musicians at the Uni-
versity of Michigan. There will be 15,000 bandsmen this afternoon but
they are not all University students. Today is Band Day which brings
together militant adolescents from all over the state who will step
colorfully onto the Stadium turf, spend 10 minutes lining up and then
'deliver the loudest rendition of "the Victors" that you have ever heard.
Little League Alums
"Alums" a third category, are generally disgusting. Like
parents of little league baseball players, they want to win at any
cost, and will spend large amounts of money buying those com-
modities which will insure, that even in case of defeat, sorrows
can be drowned. Their language adds color to the spectacle as
they scream oaths at referees, players or anyone who blocks their
view of a play.
This description, however, does not apply to all alumni, just the
successful ones. Like the carefree bunch that chartered a plane to the
California game, and stopped off in Las Vegas for three days in the!
process. But, business men will be business men.
A sparsely represented group at the ball games is the faculty. I
just don't picture too many of my profs buzzing down to the stadium
for the afternoon. There are some, of course, who are gung-ho Blue
and season their lectures with allusions to Carl Ward and Dick
Vidnier. Most, though, look askance on such goings on and hide in-
stead in their Haven hall cubicles thinking of tricky Blue Book!
The "townies" make a big deal out of the game. Ann Arbor
merchants apparently feel obligated to paste Go Blue pictures on their
store windows and pay for "Go Blue" ads in the Daily (see Page 8).!
They ought to feel obligated, too, because they spend all the rest of
their time soaking the students for everything they can. They are a
rapacious bunch and are happy when the team wins primarily because
they sell more Michigan sweatshirts when school spirit is high.
Confusing Kids .,..
The other component of the "townie" category are the high
school and grammar school students from the area who seem to
go to the games for no other purpose than to stand outside of the
stadium buying and selling tickets until the game starts. Whether
their motives are financial or purely social, is beyond me, but I
politely refuse those who offer me "50-yard line" seats for 50
cents, because I've never seen the kids sitting anywhere but the
end zones anyway.
What is worse, once these underaged entrepreneurs enter the
stadium, they find nothing better to do than run behind the goal
posts for each extra point, and swarm onto the field with 50 seconds
left in the game, no matter who is winning.
Last, but not least, among the stadium populace are visitors from
the opposing school. Hopefully, they have been situated way up in
the coriers of the stadium in about the 91st row where they won't
bother anyone. But some of them get pretty obnoxious anyway. Like
the Georgia fan who slugged me in the jaw last fall after the "Bull-
dogs" beat Michigan 15-7. Of course, I understood perfectly after his
Or wife explained apologetically that his son was on the Georgia team.!
Fans from other teams do want to win awfully bad because they
have traveled so far. The fans from North Carolina will want to win!
worse than Northwestern's for example, because they have come
farther and spent more money to get here. Also they believe that their
Talbott, is God's gift to the West- -
ern world. Already there's a street
named after him somewhere and
he's only a junior.

Fonde added.
One change has been made in
the Michigan offensive aligment
since last week. Clayt Wilhite, who
has caught three passes this year
for 63 yards, is out with a dis-
located shoulder. He is being re-
placed at left end by sophomore
Warren Sipp. This is Sipp's first
game as a starter though he saw
limited action in the Oregon State
Rates Well
Still, Coach Fonde had high
hopes for him. "Sipp is a very
fine blocker and probably faster
than Wilhite. He played tackle last
year as a freshman. He is a good
sophomore and should be alright."
While the Michigan offense is
trying to record points on the
scoreboard, it will be the Wolverine
defense that appears to be the
key to the game. Last year, Tal-
bott and his understudy, Jeff
Beaver, whohis back, completed 24
of 41 passes for 199 yards, mostly
in a comeback second half which
saw Michigan's lead cut from 21-8
at halftime to 31-24 at the close.
If the defense can stop Talbott,
the North Carolina attack should
be stymied. If not, watch out.
Still as 'the eloquent Mason
said, "We're worried about all of
them, not just Talbott, but we'll
beat them."
