The 1961 edition .of the Minne-
sota Gophers is out to prove that
defense is all that is necessary to
win ball games.
Last year's Big Ten co-cham-
pions and national champions are
first in the conference and fourth
in the natiori in total defense.
Their offense, averaging 186.3
yards per game, has shown a lack
of scoring punch.
In three games, the Gophers
have lost to Missouri 6-0, and de-
feated Oregon 14-7 and North-
western 10-3.
Powerful Again
The victory over Northwestern
proved that the Gophers will again
be a power in the Big Ten. North-
western, undefeated going into last
Saturday's game, had rolled up
two impressive wins (over unim-
pressive opponents) and boasted
of a team loaded with offensive,
Minnesota allowed the Wildcats
197 yards. In their loss to Missouri,
they allowed 96 yards, and against
Oregon 162 yards.
This defense is even more im-
pressive considering Minnesota's
graduation losses in the line,
namely everyone's All - America

Brixius (260), and Greg Larson
Building Year
Murray Warmath, Minnesota
coach, had a mere 20 lettermen
returning, and with no "super
sophomores" in sight had pre-
pared for a building year.
What their line lost in weight
last year, the Gophers have evi-
dently, gained in speed. Averaging
207 pounds per man it is the light-
est Gopher line in more than a
decade. However, every lineman is
a returning letterman.
The weight is centered around
tackles Bobby Bell (214) and Jim
Wheeler (214) and guard Robin
Teller (251). Bell was one of the.
Big Ten's best first-year linemen
last year as a sophomore. Wheeler,

ter Dick Enga (203). Enga lettered

exceptional defensive end.
Offensively the Gophers are ex-
ceptionally weak. Sandy Stephens,
their very highly-touted 6'2", 212-
pound quarterback, has scored all

the touchdowns this year, but has
done little else. Stephens has car-
ried the ball 38 times for 199 yards
and a powerful 2.8 average. His
passing is even better.
He has tried 42 and completed
seven. In addition, six have been
intercepted. His total passing
yardage is 116, and he has thrown
no touchdown passes.
Bill Munsey; junior left half-
back, is the leading rusher on the
Gopher squad. ,He has picked up

78 yards in 16 carries for a 4.3
average. Judge Dickson also has
an average over 4.0. Dickson has
chalked up 92 yards in 20 carries
for a 4-1 average. Their total
rushing, offense averages 2.9 yards
per carry.
This weekend they travel to
Champaign to take on winless Illi-



nois. Minnesota has not won at
Champaign since 1917, but are
rated as strong favorites Saturday.
With their powerful defense,
Minnesota could become the spoil-
ers of the conference this season.
In addition to Michigan, they play
Michigan State, currently number
one in the Big Ten, and also Iowa.

RUGGED LINEMEN-Bobby Bell and Tom Hall are two of the.
reasons why Minnesota is feared in Big Ten action this season.
Hall, among the Conference's speedier ends, led the Gophers
in passes caught in 1960; he and Bell are vital components of
Minnesota's top-notch defensive line.

Recovery Problem
RUDELY DUMPED from its perch among the nation's football elite
last weekend by a devastating Michigan State team, the problem
now facing Michigan is one of recovery.
The Wolverine coaching staff, fans, and players alike
keep insisting that the team "isn't that bad." It's a negative
attitude to take, but regardless of the attitude, it's going to
take guts to take the field against Purdue before many of the
same fans that saw the debacle against the Spartans.
The situation is remarkably the same as one three years ago.
Remember that? After a reasonable start that inluded a vic-
tory over Southern California, a tie with Michigan State, and a six
point loss to a good Navy team, the Wolverines were demolished by
little Northwestern, 55-24.
The team NU threw against the Wolverines that day was admit-
tedly one of the better Wildcat aggregtions. 'Still Michigan was rated
a slight favorite at kickoff on the strength of its creditable showing
in the first three games.
Disbelief at NU...
IT WASN'T A HAPPY SATURDAY for Michigan fans. Clustered
around radios throughout the state their disbelief grew with every
touchdown hill Stegath described.
In football press boxes across the nation tickertapes brought
the score. The football world was amazed. Announcers picking up
their score sheets read, "Northwestern 43, Michigan 0 (half)," and
then stuttered. that they'd have to check it. No Michigan team had
ever been handed a beating of such unbelievable proportions.
When the Wolverines hobbled home the question of the b
hour was, "Can Michigan ever recover?" This week the ques-
tion and the circumstances are identical.
A good start against UCLA and Army has all but been
discounted. The blasting by the Spartans erased all that. It's a
new season now..
It's not going tg be easy for Michigan to take the field Saturday
against a good Purdue team. It's going to take guts to held their hea,
high and play football without looking back.
The crowning blow is that it's Homecoming. It was Homecoming
three years ago too, against Minnesota.
Thecast has been changed but the setting is the same.
Three years ago the Wolverines roared back. The Minnesota
team wasn't the best in the world, but then neither was Michigan.
The fact remains that the Wolverines came back.
Fight for Lives .. .
HEY HAD TO FIGHT for their lives, and only when t'he Gopher
quarterback overthrew receivers repeatedly in the clear on the
Michigan 20-yd. line in the waning moments was the 20-19 victory,
It took a 58-yd. sprint on the first play from scrimmage in the
second half by Darrell Harper to withstand the Minnesota rally and
a missed Gopher two-point extra point try, but the Wolverines won.
The victory saved the season. Without it there's no telling how long
they would have floundered.
As it was Michigan didn't win another game, but at least
they were a football team, They battled from 14 points behind
to tie powerful Iowa in the third quarter before losing, and
and gave strong Illinois and Indiana teams a run for their
money. And in the last game it took a desperation drive in
the fourth quarter by Ohio State to beat the Wolverines, 20-
What happens Saturday against Purdue may well make the differ-
ence this year. A second crushing loss in a row could spell the end. A
victory on Homecoming weekend could provide the spark for the
final six games.
Which way will Michigan go?
