A mistake. "How can a football coach make a mistake?", the
Alumns are screaming. You can't make a mistake. You've got to win,
win, win, win. To hell with character, to hell even with being a
human being. Just win.
"'Duffy wouldn't have made that mistake."
"Woody wouldn't have done it."
Its not true. The only thing Duffy and Woody wouldn't have
done is stood in the lockerroom and faced the reporters. That's
what Bump did. And that's the Michigan tradition. Some think
it's win, win, win, win, win. I think it's men like Bump.
Mayby that's what they want though. A kill, kill kill, man-a
Duffy. After all, it's college football the pros. Bring him in, then.
Michigan only had ten losing seasons in fifty years. And Bump had
four of them.
Somehow, somewhere, somebody must know that there are more
important things than winning. At least I think there are and I
think Fritz Crisler thinks so too.
There's character. What Bump has and what he puts in his
players. That's what'Michigan bought when they bought Bump. And
he hasn't let them down for one minute, whether they know it or not.
Kill, kill, kill; win win, win. College man-the pros.
I'll take Bump. Just because he's real. Not super. Not a Duffy,
not a Woody. Just a person. A human being. A football coach too.
And when two teams play, one loses, no matter how much money
the alums give. Bump lost Saturday. But he'll win his share. He
won a Rose Bowl two years ago. He'll win again, too. Maybe not
here. Maybe they will get rid of him. Maybe some place where
they want a coach who knows how to lose as well as how to win.
Who has character. Who has guts. Bump.

What is and what might have been.
To be 0-2 and out of contention or 1-1 and playing for roses.
It's over now. The game and the verdict on Bump Elliott. An
entire campus deliberated for nearly a second and returned with a
unanimous decision of guilty.
Last Saturday Elliott elected to try a field goal to beat Purdue.
Elliott who normally becomes irate when his judgment is questioned,
simpy admitted that given the opportunity to decide over again, he
might have done it differently. But that is not the issue.
His call had to be based on scads of information far more
complex than was know to the fan. It was more than a to kick
or not to kick proposition. But that is not the issue either. The call
was not a good one, but it was not a decision that lost the game.
Yet that too is not the issue.
It comes down to a point where you wonder about people
a lot more than you wonder about a field goal. You wonder a lot
more about people than you do about what might have been if
the Wolverines had tried for a first down.
I lost my faith in a flock of football fans, not in their coach.
Can a missed 35-yard field goal turn an apathetic student body into
vigilantes. How little is needed to turn a crowd into a mob. Or how
much is needed.
Where was Harlan Hatcher hung in effigy when he sent left
wing activity membership lists to the House Un-American Activities
Committee. Who cares enough to send, Wilbur Pierporit an open
letter condemning him for totally disregarding campus intramural
and recreation needs. Where are the vicious signs maligning a school
administration which constantly ignores student interests.
When a group attacks any of these issues, the majority of stu-
dents simply turn away. They restrain their venom for something
more decisive and clear cut. They patiently wait for an anemic field
goal try. And pow, then they let loose.
Maybe everyone else is still growling about last Saturday's game.
My fist are still clenched too but for a different reason. Bump, you've
wrecked my senior year. You've made me aware of what a foul,
irrational blob of which I am forced to consider myself a part.

Special To The Daily
LaCrosse Club saw a first halfj
lead of 3-2 vanish as Michigan
State came on strong in the sec-
ond half to defeat the Wolverines
7-4, Sunday.I
Michigan, which has never beat-
en the Spartans in the game in-
vented by Indians, had the match
well under control throughout
most of the first half. Led by Bill
Toogenain, who netted three goals
in the game, the Maize and Blue
completely dominated the slow
moving first half which saw MSUI
score both of its goals on fastI
breaks. One of Toogenain's goals in
the first half was a fluke that was
assisted in by the Spartan goalie.
The other Wolverine goal in the
game was scored by Vic Zerby.

In the second half, the tables
turned as Michigan committed
costly mistakes and suffered in-
juries that allowed the Spartans
to take the game away from them.
The match, probably the best ever
played by a Michigan team, caught
a surprised Spartan team offguard
in the first half with its aggressive
play. Michigan had many more
shots on goal than Michigan State
in the game but was just not able
to break the ice more times than
the Spartans.
The many Michigan penalties in
the second half were the turning
points of the game. As in hockey
when a man commits an infrac-
tion, he is sent off the playing
field for a period of time. During
this period the penalized team is
shorthanded. When this happened

to the Wolverines, the Spartans
took full advantage and scored
against a Michigan defense which
lacked some veteran players who
were unable to make the trip here.
Michigan will seek revenge for
its frustrating loss against Mich-
igan State in Ann Arbor on
Oct. 29.
