Best So Far ..
"They're a good team," said El-
liott of the Tar Heels. "We weren't
looking past this game. The team
that beat us today is the best
we've seen this year."
But the turnabout after half-'
time was so complete. ...
"I guess it was the little things
that did it," sighed Mason. "The
things you can clear up with a
bunch of boys like this. We lacked
the poise we needed when we were
in a hole. People who have been
catching passes all week drop
them. Tempers get up....
"What can you say? We're bet-
ter than that. We did a good job
beating ourselves."

It was the second game in a
row that forward march was an
unkniown command in the see-
ond half. Last week against
California the offense scored an{
early third quarter touchdown
and then waited for, the bus to
take them to the San Francisco
night life.
This week it was even worse.
Michigan picked up three yards
rushing in the second half. Back- WHAT NOW?
field coach Hank Fonde must
have wondered if somebody's grandma died. James Meredith could
gain more marching through downtown Selma.
The total yardage for that post-intermission wake was 45 yards.
Until the final minlute, second. half pass completions numbered one.
Still they managed three whole first downs (if you include the one
that came on a penalty).
North Carolina coach Jim Hickey didn't know what stopped the
Wolverines in the second half. ("I don't know a damn thing about
our defense. You'll have to ask Coach Thalman. I know he made
some kind of changes.") Cherubic defensive coach Bob Thalman
explained that in the second half the "defense just went and got 'em."
He said they made 'a few changes like over shifting the line, putting
extra men on Jack Clancy, and moving a linebacker inside to protect'
against running through the weak side.,
But Thalman said the changes were the kind "the press and
most people wouldn't understand." Michigan's offense seemed to join
the majority on this one.
Head coach Bump Elliott was flummoxed, offensive line coach
Tony Mason was bewildered, and Fonde just shook his head and
kept looking at that amazing three-yard rushing total. No one
could explain the jejune performance by the crew that rolled up
500 yards against Oregon State.
"The loss of Wilhite (tight end Clayt) didn't mean that much,"
noted Bump.
"But the offensive line looked good," sobbed Mason.
"Three yards rushing?" wondered Fonde..

The Dodgers were rained out at
Philadelphia but now must win
only one of their two games today
to gain their second straight pen-
nant.
The best the Giants can do is
gain a tie for first. To do that,
they must beat the Pirates today
and Cincinnati Monday while Los
Angeles loses twice to the Phillies.
The Dodgers now are two games
ahead of San Francisco. The Pi-
rates fell to third place, 2%/ games
back.
' Pirates Lose
The Giants' first-game victory
gave the Dodgers the tie, and the
second one eliminated the Pirates.
