Ambivalent Heritage
By HOWARD KOHN
Go Blue! .. . Bust your gusts ... Go you guys-Run! Run on the
field. Run offk the field . . . Go out there and blow them off the
line . .. You know what I want, I want this game ... Win!!! Yaa-aay!
Or Lose??? Boo-o-o! . . . Keep on going . . . never stop--
never get tired ; . never make mistakes ... every Saturday.
Go Blue!
Sunday morning . . . heroes . . . bums . . . football ... Michigan.
' The PA announcer and the last game it's almost over -
but it's been great.
Pause . . . and look back.
For 24 Michigan seniors today's
game with Northwestern will be
their final appearance in Mich-
:rx.~,┬░igan Stadium. They've been at
Michigan four .. .five ... years.
After today? A road trip to
Columbus and the inevitable post-
season Bowl games.
But today is it . . . the last day
In a blue uniform.
What is it? Nostalgic nonsense?
Sentimental poppycock?
What do the players think
about their years in Blue?
"They've been too long," replies
All-America Jack Clancy. Any-
JACKgCLANCY thing else? "No, that's all."
Today is just another game.
Clancy is the team captain. He's the leader . . . standard-bearer
of Michigan spirit . . . a gridiron avant-garde.
But they haven't mass-produced emotions yet. Besides, Clancy
is a five-year senior who took another year on the merry-go-round
because of an injury in his junior year.
He doesn't talk about the team much and doesn't pretend to talk
for the team.

for a clicking offense, Northwest-

TWO UNSUNG SENIOR HEROES making their final career
appearances in Michigan Stadium are punter Stan Kemp and
guard Don Bailey. Above, Kemp demonstrates fine form on one
of 135 kicks which he has delivered in three years at Michigan.
Below, the 225-pound Bailey clears a path for a Wolverine ball
carrier, one of the many invaluable but often unrecognized func-
tions which offensive linemen perform.

At 1:30 today the Blue wave will wash across the field and splash
together in a boiling whirlpool of
"Go Blue's!"
Out of the 22 who will start the
game, 15 will be seniors. The rest
of the graduating corps will have
their names duly announced over
the PA system.
That's it. No pseudo-proclama-
tions. No ticker-tape parades
Fullback Dave Fisher and tight
end Clayt Wilhite have heard it
all before. They've played the
Hollywood-hero, the Father-of-
our-Country bits before, too.
If football has become a job to
Clancy, then it's still a love to
cX>.ea: ,.>4 Fisher and a sport to Wilhite.
DAVE FISHER Today's game? "It's a game
that I don't like to play. It's a
game that I know has to be played and that has to be one of my
best," explains Fisher.
Wilhite is more philosophical.
"I can remember when we were all freshmen and thinking back
through those four years I find the work and effort we've put in
almost unbelievable. But work is something that you're always
aware of.
"What you don't notice, until you think about it, is how your
attitudes change. When I came to Michigan, football was the only
thing that mattered to me. Now I realize that there are other things
that I have to take into account. I have to look at the future, at what
I'm going to do.
"However, that doesn't mean that I don't want to win or that
I don't have sentimental feelings about playing today. I think that
the seniors especially want to win these final two games . . . not
to salvage an acceptable season record . . . but just to show people
that we are a good team no matter what we've done. It's a matter
of pride."
Stress the words team and pride.
Wilhite has missed most of the last six weeks because of a
dislocated shoulder. Northwestern will be his first start since
California.
In the same token, Wilhite became so involved during the North
Carolina game that he nearly knocked over the cameras in the
pressbox where he was stationed
as a spotter; and he reinjured his
shouldei n his anxiety to get
ready for the Michigan State
game.
r He's also an honors student in
poll sci and is applying for a
Rhodes Scholarship.
Fisher is a B-plus student in
engineering and plans on alter-
nating pro ball with graduate
school. Clancy is a B student in
Ls&A and is looking to a career
of outwitting Herb Adderly.
In a very literal sense, they are
grass-roots typical of this year's
football graduates-a group that
CLAYT WILHITE Coach Bump Elliott describes as
one of the finest since I've
been here."
"I feel that as a group these seniors are really great representa-
tives for Michigan," says Elliott in what is probably the ultimate
in compliments from a coach.
"Michigan has been a great experience . . . not only intellectually
but also aesthetically and environmentally. The people I've met and
the things I've been able to do have been just tremendous," credits
Wilhite.
"But the important thing right now . . . today . . . is the
ball game."

ords; and both teams hoping to
salvage their seasons with wins
in their last two games.
Need Wins
Today the Wolverines again
sport a 2-3 record and the Wild-
cats are 1-3-1 in conference play.
Both teams need wins in their
last two games to attain respect-
able .500 season records.
But the similarities don't end
there. Last year the Northwestern-
Michigan game was forecast as
the "battle of the backs." Those
four first-class rushers, Bob Mc-
Kelvey and Woody Campbell of!
Northwestern; and Dave Fisher
and Carl Ward of Michigan, will
return to the gridiron to renew
their battle.
The Wolverines lost last year
in much the same way they have
been losing this year. A blocked
punt on the Wolverine one yard
line set up an easy Wildcat score
and a fumble on the Michigan
set up another. Wildcat fullback
Bob McKelvey continually punch-
ed through the Blue defensive line
for four yard gains and ended up
with 136 total rushing yards.
Ineptitude
The Wildcat offensive story this
year has been one of inconsisten-
cy and ineptitude. In their eight
games so far this year, they have
never scored more than three
touchdowns in a game; and the
only time they did score three TD's
was in their game against cel-
lar-dwelling Iowa.
Wolverine Defensive Backfield
Coach Don James stated the Wild-
cat problem this way: "They have c
used 34 different offensive forma-
tions which is more than any
