In the midst of the locker room. postmortem, Bump could
only say that he would probably have done it differently if he had
another chance. But what else could he say? His election had
proven a failure, and in a humble gutsy way, Elliott admitted
... well, he admitted he was human.
Elliott had seen his team come back, and now they could smell a
victory if they could only get on the scoreboard. The crowd became a
football crowd, and not just another Michigan crowd-they wanted
a victory, and they yelled for it. With fourth and five and the game
at stake Bump paced alone for 20 yards before he elected to gamble
with Vidmer to Clancy. Now with less time, more pressure, and the
game still riding on one, solitary play, Bump had to choose again.
Mason gesticulated and spoke emphatically, but still Bump
could not be sure. He could hear the crowd and he could hear what
they were yelling. Could his offense do it? Could they get the
one yard? The defense would be stacked for Detwiler or Fisher.
Clancy would be triple covered. Gamble on Ward's hands?
The Michigan bread-and-butter running play-the fullback bend
-had not worked today. Fisher had slipped three times making the
"bend" into the line between guard and tackle from his position 'be-
hind Vidmer. The last time the play was called was on the two-yard
line, and Fisher had not run the bend, but instead had gone on a
direct plunge into the line, that had netted just less than one yard.
Was Purdue stopping the play and blocking up the hole or had Fisher
just tried to cut too hard on the slick turf?
Elliott could only painfully recall moments before when the
Wolverines had the ball on the Purdue two-yard line, first down and
goal. But Michigan booted away its scoring chance.
The way the breaks had gone, a Purdue lineman could have
stolen one of Vidmer's handoffs and gone the length of the field.
It had been that kind of game. Punts brushing the safety,
blocked kicks, fumbles by normally sure-fingered backs. Nothing
was sure. Things just happen when Michigan plays Purdue. Pur-
due just wins.
Any score means a win. How much does a first down mean?
Time out.
Purdue had seen two clutch plays in "big play" situation-Fisher
off guard and down-and-out to Clancy. Mason thinks his line can
move Purdue out of there for this one play, but they didn't move Pur-
due anywhere just minutes ago.
Michigan just has to get on the scoreboard.
Bring in Sygar?
Just a yard. Vid hit for five just a few plays before.
Sygar's kick against State that hit the upright would be long
enough to win the game today.
Fish or Dets would never fumble on a straight handoff again, but
will there be a hole? Just one stinking yard.
Sygar could do it. Chances are they wouldn't block it.
Time outs don't last forever.
Make a decision.
Fisher has slipped three times on the "bend," but just a yard.
Got to get on the scoreboard.
Sygar wants it. He's been kicking well.
A first down.
But one yard doesn't mean a score.
Time. Decide. Time.
Sygar. The kid can do it.
"Sygar and Volk in for Michigan."
Mason. The kick is too long.
The wind. What about the wind? Too long, too long.
Crowd roaring.
No..No. Go with Fish.3
"Sygar, Volk get out of there! Fisher!"
Time out almost over.
Crowd screams.
"Sygar, come out!"
They-can't hear. Time in.
Too late. Waited too long.
If you ever kicked one, let it be now Rick boy. Let it be now.
