a Cava. .3 ii v W.1.






In the Purdue locker room after
Saturday's game, Head Coach
Jack Mollenkopf looked like one
of those pilots who was captured
by the North Vietnamese and es-
caped to tell about it. With a
nervous smile he managed to joke
sarcastically to an over-elated
Purdue alumnus, "We sure slob-
bered them, didn't we!"
In explaining the 22-21 victory,
Mollenkopf used the only reasons
any coach in his position could use
-such phrases as : "I prayed to
God," and "We needed every break
we got to win."
If someone would have asked
Wolverine Coach Bump Elliott be-
fore the game last week what he
would be satisfied with in his
team's handling of All-American
Bob Griese, he might have said
something like the following: "Oh,
keep his pass completion per-
centage of .655 down to about a
more normal .500 and prevent him

from scrambling when we do cover
his receivers."
Griese Stopped!
But Elliott's defense did more
than that. Griese was held to the1
meager totals of seven completions1
in 17 attempts for 63 yards (ai
.412 percentage) and ten yards for
seven carries (a 1.4 average).
Griese had ;some rationalizations9
"Their four-man rush made it
possible to double team my. re-
ceivers. Their defensive backs also
kept kicking (blocking at the line
of scrimmage) our flankers, pre-
venting them from running their
patterns with precision," he added.
Griese seemed concerned in the
locker room over his mediocre
showing. "I can't remember the
last time I passed for less than
.500. I'll have to worry about that
some this week."
Fullback Perry Williams, the
nation's leading scorer with nine
touchdowns in f o u r previous
games, couldn't manage to put a

single point on the scoreboard
the Boilermakers.

One Mollenkopf strategem which
did prove effective was his con-
centrated rush on punts. "We
worked all last week on two types
of ten-men rushes," stated Mol-
lenkopf. With the added advant-
age, when Michigan punter Stan
Kemp had to stand deep in his
own end zone, Purdue guard Frank
Burke was able to both block the
punt and achieve a lineman's
dream-scoring touchdown.
But it took a barrelfull of good
breaks for Purdue to overcome

As the football season progress-
es, the true Big Ten fan tempor-
arily immerses himself in another
world, a world far removed from
the dynamic realm of the quarter-
back and company-the cold, im-
personal world of statistics.
This realm is at least a dry one,
one reduced to the two simple
columns of wins and loses, and
the anguish of a narrow defeat is
buried within a column of figures.
More specifically, the field of the
Rose Bowl candidates narrows as
many of the predicted favorites
start beating each other.
No Blue Roses
It appears obvious, although dis-
heartening to the Michigan sup-
porters, that it would take a
. miracle for the Wolverines to go
to Pasadena. When that fourth
quarter fiasco was finished last
Saturday, so were Michigan's
Since the Wolverines now have
two conference losses, their Rose
Bowl aspirations are about as be-
lievable as Senator Fulbright of-
fering a scholarship to a U.S.
Marine in Viet Nam. Even if they
should win all of the remaining
games, it would take several key
wins and losses by other teams

impossible. Although ineligible for
