"Put the foot back into foot-
ball" fans had been crying for
many years, so they did, and now
everyone's worried except Michi-
gan's football Coach Bump Elliott.
The widening of the goal posts
last year and the addition of the
"wild card" rule, which was de-
signed to allow specialists to enter
the game gave the kicker more
emphasis than he has had for a
long time in college football.
Coach Duffy Daugherty of
Michigan State even went to the
extreme of using a soccer player
to kick off for him last week
against Iowa when his own men
weren't kicking long enough. How-
ever, despite all the publicity the
stunt received, his soccer-player
didn't do any better than anyone
else, and whether or not he will
be used again remains to be seen.
"The only thing we lack here
is consistency", said Elliott yes-
terday in regard to his crew of
boosters, whose worth has been
questioned following the Michigan
A quick look at the length of the
Michigan punts in the first three
games conf.irms this statement.
Reid. Bushong, the number one
punter for the Wolverines, has
kicked better than 40 yards
several times, but has squibbed
quite a few with the shortest
traveling only 23 yards. He has
still averaged about 34 yards per
punt, with several going into the
rend zone, costing him 20 yards per
kick, as happened on his short
Bushong has been plagued by
this trouble since he was a sopho-
more. He got off his longest kick,
of 67 yards against Indiana that
year, but was rarely used behind
steady Darrell Harper.
Scot Maentz, Michigan's alter-
nate punter, has also been un-
Elliott smiled when asked about
last year's Mr. Everything when it
came to kicking, Darrell Harper.
"He was a real good punter and
place kicker," said Elliott.
However, when it comes to place
kicking, the Wolverines don't have
to hang their heads this fall. The
job is in the good "feet" of John
Halstead. Halstead, who kicked
the field goal that nearly beat
Missouri a year ago (Michigan
lost on the game's last play) con-
verted on five consecutive PAT
tries this year, and booted a 35-
yard field goal against Michigan
State in the 24-17 loss two weeks
"One of those days"
Last week against Duke? "Just
one of those days," said Elliott.
"We were pretty surprised when
we only scored one extra point."
The Wolverines tried a fake once
and bad center snaps also hurt.
Lee Hall has- been Michigan's
best kickoff man thus far, with
Maentz again assuming part of
the responsibility. Both are im-
proving continually, and don't be
surprised if a couple of kickoffs
hit the end zone against North-
Maybe the Wolverines don't
kick quite as well as in the past
couple of years, but the coaching
staff isn't worried, and they're
the ones who should know about
