Michigan quarterback and de-

has been termed a "self-made
ball player whose intense prepara-
tion and determination make him
the capable man he is," by his
Whatever it is that makes him

plays so well, he turned in what
line coach Bob Hollway called
"his finest game of the season
against Ohio State, and he played
some good ones before that."
Great Against Buckeyes
Against the powerful Buckeyes,
Stamos was everywhere, making
more than his share of tackles all
over the field, in addition to
breaking up two pass plays that
looked like sure completions.
Included in his defensive gems
were two tackles on All-Big Ten
quarterback Tom Matte when the
latter was running the option play
to perfection. Stamos refused to
be fooled, waded in through the
blockers, and let Matte commit
himself. Only then did he move
in for the stop.
Analyzes Movies
"Experience and preparation" as
backfield coach Hank Fonde put
it, are probably two good reasons
for Stamos' success as a corner
linebacker. During his preparation
for a game he analyzes movies

critically, wanting to learn all
about the other team.
As an all-state quarterback dur-
ing high school at Chicago's Lane
Tech, and at Michigan, Stamos
acquired the knack of "signal
calling" which he appears to re-,
lease to his teammates. Many fans
last year, and this one, too, viewed
Stamos as a type of leader of the
defensive unit, despite the fact
that the center linebacker called
the signals.
Transmits Intangibles
These are the sort of intangibles
that transmit from one player to
another, which prompted Hollway
to mention that when the desire
and effort from one player affects
another, and then still more,
"that's when you have an in-
spired team, getting more out of
their ability than is really there."
By implying that one player's
efforts have to be backed up by
ten others all the time, Hollway
led into the fact that the entire

nning Season
Michigan defense this year was
the strong point of the season.
"They came up with the big play
time after time to stop the oppo-
sition, with Stamos doing his
share. The offense just didn't come
up with the big punch often
enough to reverse the scoreboard
in four games."
Even then Hollway pointed out
a few times where the defense
failed to hold, allowing opponents
to get out of a hole and put the
pressure on Michigan.
With all this desire and effort
put forth in preparation, its no
wonder that John &tamos does the
job on Saturday, and Wolverine
fans are looking forward to more
of the same next year.
"John did a real fine defensive
Job for us all year, said Coach
Bump Elliott, "maybe doing even
a little more than his share."
Michigan fans would probably
agree this is the major under-
statement of the year.

ical Title
ble Season
falling from the number one spot
in the national rankings.
But Missouri's performance,
after reaching the top, was noth-
ing startling in a year that saw
five different teams at one time
or another stake a claim to the
top spot, only to be promptly
belted by an unawed opponent.
Mr. Upset put himself in busi-
ness in a big way in one of the
very first games of the season. On
Sept. 16th Tommy Prothro's Ore-
gon State Beavers, who hadn't
won a game from Southern Cali-
fornia in Los Angeles since pro-
hibitin put'-the bootleggers in
business, rose up and smashed the
heavily favored Trojans, 14-0.
Unpredictable Season
A week by week glance at the
Associated Press Poll reveals just
how unpredictable the rest of the
season was also.
The first AP poll on Sept. 21st
showed Mississippi as the top
team, Syracuse second, Washing-
ton third, and Illinois fourth.
Where were Missouri, Iowa, and
The Tigers were number 16,
and Iowa was well down in the
19th spot, and Minnesota was
nowhere in sight. The Rebels held
the top spot the second week,
and Iowa had moved to number
eight. Syracuse took the lead in
the third week and Missouri and
Minnesota were still unranked in
the top ten.
Rebels Again
It was Mississippi again in the
fourth week with Missouri 'now
number six and Minnesota num-
ber ten. The next three weeks saw
Iowa hold the top rung, for the
,longest stint of the season.
The following three weeks, how-
ever, saw the lead change hands
faster than a bottle of Smirnoff
at a fraternity party. Minnesota's
tank-like line helped the Gophers
smother Iowa 27-10; but then
Purdue uncovered a secret weap-
on the lads from Minneapolis
had never encountered before, the
forward pass, and, toppled the
Gophers 23-14.
Chaotic Year
Missouri then made the chaotic
year complete by bowing to Kan-
sas, 23-7, and throwing the selec-
tion of the nation's best team back
into the lap of the AP board, who
will undoubtedly now be criticized
for their temerity by Mississippi
cotton growers, Iowa corn farm-
ers, and Washington potato peel-

Houston appeared to be out
