Michigan Boasts Historical Edge over State

Wildcats Surprise Big Ten

hornton had given up his his squad. Easily Answered
The question now is what does
Northwestern have? This can be
summed up in a 6' 193-lb. sopho-
more fullback from Grand Haven,
named Bill Swingle. Besides being
the leading scorer in the Big Ten
with five touchdowns (30 points),
he has a rushing percentage of 8.4
yards per carry. Against BC, he
had his longest 'run-a 95-yard
touchdown jaunt.
In 29 attempts Swingle' has
picked up 256 yards. He was pre-
::::dicted to be one of Northwestern's
most highly - touted newcomers,
and had a good spring practice last
year. Some have even stated the
possiblity that he could be one of
the greatest fullbacks iii the Par-
seghian era.
i Does Many Things
Besides being an excellent run-
ner he also is a standout passer, a
god blockr an afirst rate cor-
rner linebacker in the stout Wild-
cat defense.Y
Bob Eickoff, the quarterback, is
another reason for the early suc-
cess. Eickoff has gained 130 yards
in 13 carries for a 10.0 percentage.
He is a senior and for two years
he has played behind Thornton.
In the passing department, Fred
Quinn, a junior quarterback, has
attempted the majority of passes,
eight, and completed five of them
for 113 yards and a touchdown.
Many Questions
There are still many xquestions
concerning the Wildcats that have
yet to be answered, primarily be-
cause the quality of its competition
has been questioned. But the facts
remain that they have scored 73
fE D0 RApoints and have allowed only 8.

tionalsand Big Ten champions

The fact that Michigan is trying
for the sixth consecutive year to
salvage a victory from its northern
neighbors might imply that Michi-
gan State has a traditional edge
over the Wolverines in the games
won department.
History proves different. In the
53 meetingL of the two teams, the
Wolverines have won 35, while
dropping only 14. There were four
However, there is more here
than facts. 'The Michigan-Michi-

gan State rivalry, besides being
one of the most exciting in the
country, has had an interesting
history. The rivalry seems to evolve
in generations as sons of Michigan
greats return to Ann Arbor to
meet the sons of former Spartan
Fathers and Sons
This year for instance Michigan
State lists at left end Art Brand-
statter. Looking back to the thir-
ties one can find listed at fullback
of the great Spartan team of 1935,
Art Brandstatter. The year Art, Sr.

played State won 25-6 with Brand-
statter driving 28 yards in two
plays for the key tally. Then
there's this year. The Spartans
have Art, Jr. Ends can hurt you
too. Does history repeat itself?
If you believe that it does, here's
another problem. Three years be-
fore, the "M" lineup for the State
game ,listed at left guard John

John Kowalik on the 1961 Wolver-

highly favored. The team was

Daily, Union Fight for Wastebasket;
Union Favored, Daily Loses Players

"We may have trouble with their
football team, but our band is bet-
ters than theirs," Michigan Union
Coach B. 0. (Bare) Baron divulg-
ed yesterday to a select group of
sports scribes.
Baron sounded a hopeful note
of pessim'ism in evaluating the
Union strength for the second an-
nual Bier Bowl with the Michigan
Daily. The traditional contest for
the Big Brown Wastebasket will be
played at 4:15 today at Ferry
The Union ranks as a 33-point
favorite, Tass news agency report-
ed Wednesday.
'We're Tough'
"We've :got five high school
jocks as starters but from there
on, the depth is pretty weak."
Baron cited four Exec Council
members as examples. The re-
porters nodded knowingly.
Assistant; Coach Paul (Night
Train) Cairder echoed the Bare's
sentiments but added the reas-
suring wisdom that "our first,
string out'weighs Fanhel's squad
by three lbs." Athletic Director
John (Unidesirable) Carlson was
unavailable for comment.
On the other side of East Jef-
ferson Stret, injuries have hit the
Daily squad. Sore legs have ham-
pered two key returnees from last
year's 16.14 rout of the tie-and-
coat men. Wayback Harvey "Kha-
ki" Moloth has been drafted by

B.F.U.L.C. Gillman has suffered a
broken hand and will direct the3
team from the sideline.
Oh Yeah?
Gillman revealed the fact that
injuries will seriously impair the
Daily seven, "although the Union
may get theirs, too," he mildly
added. Assistant Coach Dave
(Grease Pencil) Andrews cited the
Daily's upset of last year as an
example of the newspaper gang's
"Where opinions are free, truth}
will prevail," he stressed.
Athletic Director H. O. , (Third
Degree) Burns said regional tele-
vision had been ruled out because
of a contract dispute in the courts.
He made the following prediction:
"It's anybody's ballgame, but
on the basis of comparative rec-
ords, I'd say it was definitely be-
tween the Union and the Daily."

been referred to this season); the
Spartans bragged that no Wolver-
ine back could crack the MSU line.
Sunday morning the score read
26-0, Michigan. The Daily head-
linen read "Michigan Takes Of-
fense Through Most of Game;
'Iron men' Melt Before Steady At-
tack." Now, does history repeat
The next year another familiar
name was in the "M" lineup. Har-
vey Chapman, Sr., father of this
year's right halfback, met State
in the 1933 game. Michigan won
that year too, 20-0.
Exciting Series
These scores are not particularly
typical though, as there is nothing
really typical about the series ex-
cept year ,to year excitement and
top-notch football.
The most spectacular score was
recorded in 1902, when the Wol-
evrines shut out the Spartans
119-0. The top score reading the
other way was recorded just four
years ago when State won 35-6.
There were three 0-0 ties to
offset the lopsided scores of other
years, and of course there were
many games decided by a single
touchdown. It is as difficult to
establish a trend in this rivalry as
it is to pick the winner from year
to year.
Take this year for instance .
Practice Notes
As the season's big game with
Michigan State approaches, head
coach Bump Elliott and his staff
are drawing the week's sets of
specialized practices for the game
to a close.
Each week before a game,
coaches try to run the plays of the
next week's opponents in the man-
ner closest to the team itself. The
mock defenses and offenses wear
the opposing player's numbers and
try in the best way possible to give
the first and second team the most
practice in diagnosing and running
their plays against the team's de-
Short Practice
Yesterday, the team ran only a
shortitime finishing up their pre-
parations for the game. The prac-
tice was not intended to work the
boys too hard, merely to work
them as a unit, and to work par-
ticularly in preparation for to-
morrow's game.
Elliott isn't preparing the team
for specifically a passing or a run-
ning game in spite of the fact that
MSU's defense against a ground
game is touted as one of the best
in the country. "We will have to
see how the game is progressing
before going one way or the other"
the mentor commented. "The State
defense is really tough, but I still
do not wish to set offensive pat-
terns until I see them in action."
* * *
The starting lineup will be the
same as that which started against
Army. Joe O'Donnell and Lou Pav-
loff are still sidelined with injuries
sustained in the UCLA game. Dave
Kurtz and Delbert Nolan, both
sophomores, will fill in the vacated
right guard spot as they did last
week. Both boys looked good and
helped to fill the tremendous gap
left by O'Donnell and Pavloff.

The only new injuries added in
the Army game belonged to the
first team halfbacks, Dave Raimey
and Bennie McRae. Raimey should
be in near perfect shape for to-
morrow's game. He bruised a hip
in the first quarter of the Army
game last weekend and retired
from action after carrying, the
ball only three times for 17 ;ards.
"The only indication of his injury
tomorrow could be that his speed
will be slightly under par," Elliott
McRae, who complained of leg
and foot pains in last week's game
should be back in top physical
shape. The injury was nothing
serious, only painful.
With the exception of O'Donnell
and Pavloff then, the Wolverines
should be in top shape to meet the
Ohio Backs
To Athletes
CHICAGO ( ) - Big Ten Com-
missioner William Reed said yes-
terday Ohio State University was
the first conference school to ap-
prove the league's proposed new
aid-to-athletes program.
The Buckeyes school's faculty-
council solidly backed the new
program which strikes the "need"
factor for financial aid to athletes,
but tightens scholastic entrance
The new program, now being re-
viewed by individual schools, will
be put up to a final vote at the Big
Ten's December meeting, in Chi-
It was approved, conditionally at
last May's conference spring meet-
ing in Iowa City.
New rules require a student to
complete a full year of academic
work each year he is eligible for
competition and declares that
grade requirements now are based
solely on a minimum cumulative
average in each of his three years
of competition.
Additionally, financial aid was
pro-rated upon the ability of an
athlete's family to contribute to
his college expenses.
"This so-called 'poverty vow' was
sharply criticized by coaches who
complained that it chased numer-
ous athletes from Big Ten schools
to outside institutions.
Under the new program, full
grants would be awarded to all
qualifying athletes. Such complete
aid at Presant is limited to athletes
rated in the top one-quarter of
their high school graduating class.
