COLUMBUS-A couple of years ago Jim Detwiler topped Woody
Hayes' famous "Get List" of valuable prep prospects. Yesterday
H' yes took. him.
Right between the eyes.
The Diesel reigned at center stage in Michigan's 17-3 win
over what becomes the second losing team (4-5) at Columbus
during Woody's tenure. Detwiler, showing in his final varsity
game the stuff that made him such an exciting figure two years
ago,. rolled up 140 yards and a touchodown in 20 carries, as Mich-
igan shifted emphasis in its offense to again double-cross a key-
ing defense.
Figuring the Bucks to concentrate hard on Dave Fisher and
Carl Ward, who each had carried the major part of the Wolverines'
ground attack in other games this year, Bump Elliott and his staff
camee up with a couple of new plays, handing the torch to Detwiler.
And the big Toledo halfback, running off tackle over Don Bailey
and taking sweeps on the counter play, also led by Bailey pulling
from his right guard spot, just seemed to take off after clearing
the line of scrimmage through holes of a size rarely seen.
"We respected Ohio's defense," said a completely jubilant, cigar-
smoking, half frozen Tony Mason after the game. "But they just
'couldn't. handle those plays. Detwiler put on a tremendous display
this afternoon, and-well you know I'm partial-Bailey was just un-
believable."
One of the reasons that the praise was going to be heaped
high was that, as Hank Fonde revealed, Detwiler, Bailey, and
Clayte Wilhite, who made three big receptions for 51 yards and
an explosively sudden 28-yard TD all had intestinal flu,
vp Characteristically perhaps, Detwiler termed it a stomach ache.
Detwiler appears to be one who scrupulously avoids the limelight.
Lord knows why.
After yesterday's game his method was, "It's basketball season.
It's the Craig Dill story now"
About the knee, the knee that so greatly affected the course of
his varsity career, he was direct. "I guess it was the little things that
hurt this year," he explained. "It was slow in coming around until
the season started. The double sessions of conditioning in the fall
tired it somewhat. And then there was always something like a bone
chip, a strained muscle ..."
Any regrets?
"Regrets? Well, why? I guess I played as well as I could.
That's it. Today the whole team played well."
"He looks like he has a new set of legs," said a frustrated and
obviously strained Woody Hayes after the game which reportedly
meant everything to him this year. "Detwiler gained a lot of yards
a lot of yards. He's getting stronger all the time. He never used
to make the big ones before...
"If he had one more year," opined Mason, "it would really be
something to see. I think he got to the level he was at last year. He
was determined, and so he's been playing over the obvious fears."
"He 'improved physically over the year," said Bump Elliott.
"By now, the end of the season, he's taken a lot of punishment
and come through it. It helped him get by the psychological prob-
lem. He and Fisher were tremendous today.
"I'm pleased most of all for the seniors. They've played so hard
over the three years. . . . I'm glad it could be this way. They earned
It. The defense, especially, had a really good game.
"I guess the key play was when . But let Woody tell it.
Did Michigan do anything you didn't expect, coach?
"Yeah. We didn't expect to be stopped on fourth and sixJ
on the six. That was it right there. It was the first time that we
moved the ball all day. We set up the pass real good too-the
man was wide open. . . . And then that end (Tom Stincic)
knocked it down.1
"I've never seen so many passes batted down. We just couldn't
get in the game." -
'AW, heck. It wouldn't have made a difference what those guys
did today," said Mason. "Sure, we were afraid of their potential allt
rght.But we were after them. It was THE game."
A happy, roaring round or two of "The Victors" in the lockert
room right after the win made that clear.
* And Mason, as predicted, took the game in shirtsleeves a lat
Woody.
"I froze!" he admitted. "But I told you I'd go bareback if I had
to for this one."
And he closed out a la Cassius with an extemporaneous:
"Goody, Goody.., We Beat Woody!"',
The only thing left was the comments of some OSU coaches to
Hanic Facnde. "They played a hell of a game today. We're sure glad
to seem them go. We won't miss them." "
And Fonde's farewell ... "We will."

record for most yards gained
(656).
At halftime, the teams went to
the locker room, and the fans who
needed new radio batteries began
making for the exits. During the
second half, the customers stead-
ily left the premises to keep in
touch with happenings at Michi-
gan State.
Determined
Hayes, however, still had his
mind on the game at hand, and he
was determined to score in the
opening drive.
At the start of the game, a
Buckeye thrust had forced its way
to the Michigan 39 when a fourth
and one play failed by inches. Be-
fore Ohio could get goinng again,
they were behind.

Hayes' strategy was anything
but new. His bread and butter play
had been purloined from the 19461
Army team: A Glenn Davis Spe-
cial-the counter around tight
end. (It was a play that helped
the Cadets win the national title
that year-even though they tied
number two, ranked . . Notre
Dame.)
Now in the second half, Hayes
wanted the play to work with Bo
Rein. The fleet halfback picked up
five on it and then tried again.
Good for ten yard with a great
clip from Mike Current. Boom.
OSU had had it. The ball was
moved back to the 17 yard line,,
the Bucks had to punt, and a few
seconds later Vidmer fired a 28-
yard touchdown pass to roommate
Clayt Wilhite.

the situation. Believing Current's More important from the Mich-
