Wolverine

Ramble:

Red-Letter

Day

for

Offense

By GRETCHEN TWIELMEYER
To a Michigan fan, intoxicated
on divulgations that the Wolver-
ines had an easy victory, the game
floated by their eyes like a hand-
ful of Mary Poppin's balloons.
From the Wisconsin press box,
located at crow's nest level, the
game looked like a whimsical
dream interrupted only by an an-
nouncer obviously ill-prepared to
enunciate names on the Michigan
roster. Passes were perfectly timed,
tosses floated to their targets and
in travelled lazily along their arcs
like whiffleballs.
On the field it looked somewhat
more violent. The Michigan de-
fense strained for three plays in
the first quarter to keep the Bad-
gers boxed inside Michigan's five
ward line, and sensed that they'd
held them for a fourth until a
referee signalled otherwise. Todd
had just barely plopped himself
over the goal line.

But did anyone blow his cool?
Uh-uh. No one had a chance be-
cause it only took three plays for
the Wolverines to vent their ire.
After a 51 yard return by Jim
Detwiler and an incomplete pass
attempt by Carl Ward, quaterback
Vidmer hit Jack Clancy for 13
yards. Then Dave Fisher pounded
through the remaining chalk lines
for another touchdown.
The Michigan pass defense look-
ed spotty and Head Coach Bump
Elliot admitted, "We weren't as
sharp as last week; their passers
and receivers got open well. We
were playing closer to the line
than before, and this might be a
reason."
Watch the Bomb
But Bump landed his defense.
"In the last three quarters we
stopped them other than on long
passes. And the Wisconsin offense
is better than many people gave
them credit for."

The long passes damaged Mich-j
igan's yardage statistics, and gave
Wisconsin the distinction of being
the only team besides Michigan
State to outgain the Wolverines
in total yardage. Penalties, how-
ever, made the Wolverines look a
lot worse on paper; Michigan lost
73 yards on penalties and al-
though rushing yardage was 277
yards to Wisconsin's 151 and pass-
ing yardage was roughly equal,
the Badgers squeaked ahead on
net gains.
Went That Away
Michigan end coach George
Mans explained, "the defensive
coaches have been teaching pur-
suit this year more than previous-
ly, and most of the penalties have
been for piling on. It's a split-
second decision that the boys have
to make and a referee views it
subjectively."
Wisconsin showed a cordiality
in the first quarter that will linger
nostalgically in the memories of
Michigan alumns. Justmbefore Stan
Kemp punted a 69-yard beauty,

loosed a scally of balloons. The
unasthetic fleet resembled chicken
feather rather than puffy spheres,
but they did plume the most awing
play of the game.
Clancy Breaks Own Record
Jack Clancy contrived to break
the only record left for him-his
own receiving record, by four. So
far it's 56. After all, when you're
leading the country, who else can
you compete against?
Only Fisher's pulled shoulder
muscle could really worry the
crowds at Camp Randall, but the
coaches think he should be able
to play against the Illini.
If the game did one thing, it
bolstered the Badger's hopes for
victory in the future, They im-
proved more than expected and
chances are they'll improve even
more. George Manns praised their
game, "If Wisconsin were up for
n e:.t week's game and Purdue
down, the Badgers could win it."
Which could make Michigan's
Rose Bowl chances look brighter
than the faint glimmer they nowe

THE JUNIOR CIRCUIT
By CLARK NORTON
So He took a hundred pounds of clay and made a woman. Big
deal. Foam rubber might have worked just as well and maybe even
improved on the product.
But then He took two-hundred pounds of Clay and ended up
with some punch-happy braggart named 'Muhammed Ali, who just
happens to be the heavyweight champion of the world. Now that
was an accomplishment.
Ali, formerly known as Cassius Clay to everyone and still
known as Cassius Clay to everyone except Cassius Clay and Elijah
Muhammed (Allah's answer to Moses), has become the most con-
troversial sports hero since Charles Goren voted for canasta as
the national pastime.
More people get upset that Clay is a Black Muslim than know
the difference between Floyd Patterson and his mother. Cassius'
mouth is more renowned than the Mona Lisa's. His talent is brushed
aside as often as the average tooth in a Crest commercial.
Nobody seems to care anymore that Cassius has never lost a
professional match. If he doesn't knock his man out, people say he
couldn't outpunch a bowlful of ginger ale and limeade. If he does KO
his opponent, the fans say the oaf tripped on his shoelaces.
The longer Clay remains champion, the worse he has to clobber
his rivals before anyone will admit he could go five rounds with Jerry
Lewis. People just have it out for Clay. They claim he couldn't knock
out Rip Van Winkle. Some fans say he couldn't beat a tambourine.
Others swear the only way he could render anyone unconscious would
be through hypnosis.
Yet he keeps on winning. It could be that he's been facing
the weakest competition since the Celtics met the Belgian Congo
all-stars. Maybe Sonny Liston did sit down in his corner because
he saw a mouse. Maybe Floyd Patterson did fold because his jaw
could be used in a Windex commercial.
But it's just possible that Clay is one of the greatest fighters of
all time.
Before Cassius announced his associations with Malcolm X,
began writing poetry that would make Emily Dickinson leave her
house, and developed a higher opinion of himself than Charles De
Gaulle with a Narcissus complex, Clay was regarded as partically
super-human.
Now no one will admit that some one who doesn't want to go
against his principles by serving in the army and would rather visit
Mecca than Jerusalem can possibly have a right hook that would
knock out a "normal" American.
Well, Willie Mays proved that Negroes wouldn't shiver in
their shoes if brushed back a few times. Jack Kennedy proved
that a non-Protestant could be elected President. And Cassius
is just likely to prove that some one in a very unpopular minority
can indeed be an outstanding heavyweight champion.
If most people don't agree with Cassius politically or religiously,
they should at least give him the credit he deserves as an athlete.
Nobody complains because Lyndon Johnson can't play handball.

Take a cue from our last Grid'
Selections' winner and just quietly
celebrate your coveted victory.
Dave Kolton of 334 Cooley, East
Quad, was so overcome by emo-
tion when informed of his win-
ning that he went racing out on
the street yelling at the top of his
lungs.
"Eureka, Eureka," he enthused
when he came upon the first pas-
ser-by, a stately Forestry profes-
sor.

Girl Tankers Triumph; 'M' Booters Shine

After weeks of suffering through
boy's push-ups and pulling a 20-
pound weight slung over the div-
ing board, the Michigan Women's
Intercollegiate Swimming team,
soundly defeated Wayne and East-
ern Michigan Universities last
Saturday.%
Michigan amassed 64 points, to
Wayne's 36 and Eastern's 32. Only
seven Michigan girls swam in the
meet but they placed in almost
all of the events and took firsts in
five; the 200 meter medley relay,
the 50 yard freestyle,50 yard but-
terfly, 100 yard freestyle, 200 yard
freestyle relay. Lynn Allison, El-
len Weiland, Kathy Van Buskirk
took individual firsts while Nancy
Brown, Marilyn Sayre, Patti Kel-
ley, Ellen Weiland, Kathy Porter,
Lynn Allison, and Kathy Van
Buskirk shared in medley honors.
Wayne's team included an
Olympic breaststroke champion,
Cindy Goyette, who swam in
Tokyo.

Although Michigan's team is
tops on quality, it could stand
some depth and the girls' coach,
Miss Phillips, is almost crying for
help. She pleads, "We are looking
for any girl who would like to
come out for the team. The girls
we have are really good, but there
just aren't enough girls to take
fourths and fifths and we lose
points there."
This Saturday, the girls will try
out the Michigan State pool for
size, and will be splashing for their
second straight victory-Gretchen
Twietmeyer.
The Michigan soccer team
soundly defeated the Eastern
Michigan International Club team
in a scrimmage Sunday, 5-0.
Suzanne Von Schenkendorff,
perhaps the only female college
soccer coach in the country, com-
mented, "I really expected us to

do worse after I saw the Michigan
team. I think our offense was just
as good, though, but the Mich-
igan defense was just fabulous.
We did really well for a team that
had only met together once be-
fore."
Wolfgang Baer, captain of the
Michigan team reflected, "It was
a good clean game. They weren't
bad and certain individuals were
very good. They just lacked team-
work."-G.T.
