Just 64 Years Ago.
Michigan 119, M.AiC. 0
When several Wally Webers are gathered together to chirp about
the "grand old days" of Michigan football, they will surely recall the
"Snow Bowl," the first game in Illinois' "Sucker Bowl," and the initial
"Little Brown Jug" tussle, but on this day it seems only fitting and
proper to recall still another Michigan grid classic-The 1902 Michi-
gan-M.A.C. game.
Approximately 64 years ago this week (a number of no par-
ticular significance) Michigan took the field against the forces
from Michigan Agricultural College (no longer COMPLETELY
agricultural) and forty minutes later, with touchdowns valued
at only five points apiece, the score was 119-0.
. THE DAILY, then the DAILY NEWS, recorded the action thusly:
"In a game replete with brilliant plays of every description, which time
and again brought the large crowd of rooters to its feet, Michigan
piled up the almost unparalleled score of 119 points on the team from
Michigan Agricultural College." The "almost" should perhaps be
emphasized since the Wolverines under Coach Fielding Yost had
edged Buffalo by the score of 128-0 only a year before.
This contest, played on a Wednesday afternoon, might have
set one record, however, since the halftime score was 71-0. The
Daily News said, "This number of points is in all probability a
world's record." Indeed, that Wednesday afternoon might have
been one of the darkest in Aggie history.
One interesting sidelight of the game was that Coach Yost had
been tight-lipped, in almost Bump-like fashion, prior to the game.
"I'll have to wait to see what kind of team they have," he pronounced.
After the game Yost announced that he was pleased with his team's
effort and particularly with his kicker. Lawrence (who apparently
had no first name) booted 19 out of 20 PATs in the contest, and the
one he missed went awry "by only the slightest margin." Can Dick
Kenney say the same?
The game appeared to get out of hand from the very begin-
ning as Michigan star halfback Herrnstein paraded through the
entire State team for a 95-yard runback with the opening kickoff.
Michigan had the ball twice more in the next 113 seconds, and the
Wolverines scored twice on runs of 64 and 35 yards by Gravener
and Herrnstein. Well, when the last pieces of the tattered farm-
ers had finally settled, Herrnstein had six TDs, Gravener four,
Dickey three Redden two, Cole two, Jones one jidston one and
Carter one. A total of twenty.
Some of the play-by-play, written in Chicago Tribune fashion,
went as follows: ". . . Michigan's Maddock then butted three MAC
players over with his head. At this stage the farmers (that's right)
were given the ball for holding the line."
In closing, the Daily News noted, "The wind was from the
southwest. Michigan won the toss and chose the West goal." Per-
haps that same ill wind will blow for MSU on Saturday.

Porter, who is probably betterI
known for his wrestling prowess,
has no real preference between
football and grappling. "When I
first came here, I preferred wrest-
ling, but now the two sports are
pretty even."
He chose Michigan after going
over the good points of both Mich-
igan and MSU with his high
school wrestling coach and came
to the conclusion that Michigan
had more to offer than MSU. It
is a decision that he seems not

his wrestling career. Then, leaning
back in his chair with a grin on
his face, he remembered he once
suffered a defeat while in seventh
grade. Well, nobody's perfect.
After being banned from prac-
tieingfor the 1964 Olympic trials
at Michigan State, Porter con-
tinued to practice elsewhere
