Harris has - been accused of

There is one team in the Big
Ten whichphas the best runner,
the best passer, the best pass-
catcher, the best punter, and the
highest scorer.
Which one is it?
Is it Michigan State? The
mighty spartans are four and zero
in conference play and number
two in the country. They have

in Ann Arbor. The names Fisher,
Vidmer, Clancy, Kemp and Det-
wiler' are not the name of a dis-
tinguished lawhfirm but rather
represent the individual leaders
in five of the seven major Big
Ten offensive categories.
So far this season, little Dickie
Vidmer has outshone big Bob
Griese in the passing department,
a department dominated by the
Purdue All-American last year.
"Vid" is the Big Ten leader in
passes attempted with 85, passes
completed with 46, passing yard-
age with 598, and touchdown pass-
es with six.
Fullback Dave Fisher has pick-
ed up in three games more yard-
age -than any of the "supermen"
in the MSU backfield have been
able to gain in four conference
contests. His 278 yards in 49 tries
gives him a phenomenal rushing
average of 5.7 yards per carry
against Big Ten defenses.
Even his blocked punt in the
Purdue game hasn't kept Stan
Kemp from surpassing Big Ten
punters in that category; in 18
kicks he's still been able to man-
age a 39.9 league-leading average.
Striving for comeback-of-the-
year honors is halfback Jim Det-
wiler. The resurgent "Diesel Det"
is tied with another injury-prone
back, Bob Apisa of MSU, with
the scoring lead of the, Big Ten.
When the Wolverines have been
close to the goal line, it's been
Detwiler whose gotten the call to
get thehscore. And he has done
it to the tune of five times in
three games.
And One More 1
That fifth mythical law part-
ner is spread end Jack Clancy,
whose total of 24 receptions leads
the league. He has caught 50
passes in the first six games of
the season and needs just two
more to equal last year's total of
52 receptions, a Michigan record.
For the statistically-minded fan
is the fact that last week was the
second largest attendance mark in

history for the 10 largest football
stadiums in the country. Of the
top 10 crowds, Big Ten teams ac-
counted for five of them, with
Michigan being third in the cus-
tomer parade.
Another interesting aspect of
season is the fact that Michigan
needs just five more victories to
reach a grand total of 500 wins
in its football history. When the
