Purdue coach Jack MollenkopfI
Must work overtime just thinking
up quips for sportswriters. -
About sophomore fullback Perry
Williams:- leading scorer in the
nation with 54 points - he says,
"His mother and father raised him
right. The goal line is just like
heaven to him."
About.sophomore defensive back
Leroy Keyes--who has switched to,
offense for the sake of variety in
the fading minutes of Purdue's
first four games and has complet-
ed two of two passes, whipped off
a nine-yard run from scrimmage,:
picked off one of Bob Griese's
tosses and scored a touchdown-
he says, "We are trying to work
him in 'more on offense, but the
coaches don't have too much time
Then, with a smile, he adds,
"He's not a natural athlete but
he's corning along." (Keyes now
also kicks off for the Boiler-
-About Griese-who has rewritt-
en the Purdue record book so
many times that it's now published'
weekly and is zeroing in on the
Heisman Trophy - he says, "He
has one thing that most college
quarterbacks don't have. ."
You'd have to have the mental-
ity of an Ivy League professor or
have spent the last three years
in the Swiss navy not to be able
to figure out the answer.
Griese has done everything with
a football but manufacture one in
23 previous college games, and the
only answer opposing coaches
have been able to figure out is
Tony Mason's strategy of "trip!
him in the locker room."
Mollenkopf, Griese and an as-
sorted collection of wags from Laf-
ayette, Ind., arrived in Ann Arbor
last night in time to ready some
post-game quotes for today's
match with Michigan. Purdue, 3-1
on the season and 1-0 in the Big
Ten, is-rated a three to five point

prisingly non - commital about c
Purdue's chances, preferring to!

kopf has had his team ready
enough to take the toughness out
of the Wolverines and walk away
victorious four times.
The last three have been at
Michigan Stadium and a fourthj
today would make the Boilermak-
ers only the second team in his-
tory to do that to the Wolverines.
In 1964, when Michigan went'
to the Rose Bowl, Griese connected
on two touchdown passes and
kicked- three PAT's for a 21-20
decision to spoil an otherwise per-
fect record for the Wolverines.
Then in 1965, when Michigan'
plummeted from the national
rankings, Griese again engineered
a marginal victory by kicking a
35-yard field goal in the final min-
ute of play. In addition, "kid
stuff" completed 21 passes for
273 yards, pushing end Jim Finley'
to a Purdue pass receiving record-
Purdue's only loss this year has'
been to high-ranked Notre Dame,
who decked Griese early and then
sent in two guys that Ara Par-
segian picked up hitchhiking on
the way to the game (Jim Sey-
mour and Terry Hanratty) to
manhandle the Boilermaker de-
Mollenkopf wasn't too quick}
with the quips after the Irish in-'
cident, but he recovered enough'
to manage a specialty for the Ann
Arbor community this week: "I've+
seen plenty of (Jack) Clancy. I
just saw Seymour too late."
Michigan's coaching staff hasn't
taken time out to match witticisms.
with Mollenkopf, but it has con-:
centrated on dissolving Griese.
"Our defense will play a cat-
and-mouse game with him. We're
going to try and keep Purdue
guessing," volunteered assistant
coach Don James.
Pressure Equals Mistakes
"We'll try to keep as much pres-
sure on Griese without letting him
get through to his receivers for
swing passes over the middle. We
feel that he can be forced into
making mistakes if we put on a
good rush," added James.
However, James warned that the
Wolverines will have to guard
against the "big play" which
could break the game open. "In
Purdue's previous games, it has
appeared to follow a pattern of
'three plays and kick or four plays
and score,'" he explained.
Mollenkopf has lined up the
Boilermakers in pro formation this
year with either a split backfield
or the "I." He also has, as a rule,
two. receivers split wide, several
four-man pass cuts and has or-
dered Griese to "open up the game
Purdue's offensive line, which
would have trouble opening up
holes in a doughnut factory, has
1 only to worry about protecting
Griese since Mollenkopf hasn't had
heart to sacrifice his running
backs to some man-eating defense.
Scoring whiz Williams' longest
gain has been for 16 yards.
An injury to halfback Lou Sims
-shelved for the season-further
softened the Boilermaker ground
Michigan, on the other hand,
has the closest thing to a balanced
attack outside the Marine Corps
and is uncharacteristically healthy.
With the return of defensive
end Rocky Rosema and defensive
tackle Ken Wright to practice this
week, Coach Bump Elliott now
only has tight end Clayt Wilhite
on the sidelines.
Both Rosema and Wright are
expected to see action.
No State Letdown
The Wolverines' biggest obstacle
this week has been the psycholog-
ical phenomena of "Michigan
State-letdown." But Elliott was
the first to disclaim the serious-
ness of such an effect.
"They're all very conscious of
the significance of this game. I
don't think there will be any let-
down," he said.
Going into the game, Purdue
holds an edge over the other Big
Ten teams regarded as possible
runners-up to Michigan State and
candidates for a trip to Pasadena.
Ohio State, Illinois and Michigan
have all lost one game - while
Purdue smashed Iowa 35-0 in its
lone conference encounter.
"All of our games are important,
but this one is especially impor-
tant now," admitted Elliott.
Should Michigan win, it could
conceivably have a good chance,
for the roses.
"As far as the team's concern-
ed," emphasized quarterback Dick
lVidmer. "this year's season starts
"We're still in this thing to go
to the Rose Bowl," countered
linebacker Frank Nunley. "If we
beat Purdue, we think that Mich-
igan State will be able to beat
"Of course, we'll have to win
the rest of our games," he con-
"This is a must game for us,"
added assistant coach George
Mans. "Our morale is high,"
And so on .. .
Michigan's quotes aren't quite
as impressive as Mollenkopf's bon
mots, but then Casey Stenjel and
Leo Durocher have been finish-
ing last lately.

Will They Ever Return?
MICHIGAN SURPRISED BOTH MICHIGAN STATE and Wolverine fans 1Wst week when it un-
veiled a latent resource: girl cheerleaders. The girls combined with Michigan's regular male cheer-
leaders to coax hidden enthusiasm out of the fans. Unconfirmed rumors indicate that the girls may
be back for today's Purdue game.
BULLISH DAVE FISHER, Michigan fullback, cracks through the line for a substantial gain in last year's Purdue game. The Boiler-
makers spoiled the Wolverines' homecoming with a 17-15 marginal decision to extend a three-game win streak at Michigan Stadium
and a four-year skein over Michigan. Purdue meets up with Michigan again today in a key Big Ten game for both teams.

The Board of Intercollegiate
Athletics accepted officially the
resignation of Assistant Basketball
Coach Jim Skala at their lengthy
six hour meeting last night. Skala
will remain at Michigan as assist-
ant coach until November 1 when
he will depart for an executive
position with a Detroit business

with reluctance," said Athletic Di-

available coaches already have
their jobs for the coming season."
Crisler said that the board will
seek a temporary replacement for$
Skala in the coming season.
The board also decided to keep
the radio and television policy for
basketball games the same as last

construction on the University
Events Building, Crisler said, "We
are way behind schedule."
