Keyes scored was around my side.
The wingback 'hooked' me, and
they were able to get outside."
Psyching Out
Switching from the topic of
playing techniques, Rosema spoke
briefly about the psychological side
of football. "I find that I play
my best when I get mad," he
stated. "Before a game, I try to
think about a time when some-
body clipped me, or some other
little thing, and blow them up. I
really can't get psyched up like
some guys can, though."
The awards for the best offen-
sive and defensive players of the
week, instituted this year by the
Michigan coaching staff, along
with the setting of offensive and
defensive objectives before each
game, have helped provide team
incentives, according to Rosema.
"It's kind of a game between the
offense and defense to see who can
accomplish the most," he added.
There's an old ditty popular in
Ann Arbor that goes, "If your
feet are big and your head is
small, you can go to State just
to play football." Another mani-
festation of the old theme, with
perhaps just a smattering of truth?
A few more guys like Rosema,
holding nothing in common with
the myth but athletic ability, could
obliterate it for good.
