M' Tests Duke Speed, Experience

Dayton's Raimey Seeks Football Name

1) 1 1

Long on speed and short on
weaknesses will be a scrappy Duke
football squad which invades Ann
Arbor this Saturday to tangle with
Michigan in a key intersectional
With a four win and two loss
record the Blue Devils are a tough,
well balanced team which has its
eyes on the Atlantic Coast Con-
ference title and a win over the
Wolverines to avenge last year's
31-8 drubbing, their only loss of
the season.
Post Four Wins
So far this season the men from.
Durham have polished off South
Carolina, Virginia, Wake Forest
and North Carolina State, while
losing to Georgia Tech and Clem-
Speed and the forward' pass are
the life's blood of the Blue Devil
attack, which operates out of a
lonesome end offense and combines
the passing talents of quarter-
backs Walt Rappold and Gil Gar-
ner with the rapid running of
halfbacks Jack Wilson, Dean
Wright and Mark Leggett.
Big, Fast Backs
Big, fast and shifty are the
credentials held by the top four
Duke halfbacks, who have been
the big gainers in the hit-quick
offense of the Blue Devils for most
of the season. Wilson is the team
captain who runs the 100 yard
dash in 9.9 seconds. His teammate
Mark Leggett was a pre-season
All-America pick and currently
leads the team in rushing with
150 yards in the first five games.
Especially dangerous is Joel Ar-
rington who was injured early in
the season but came back to help
lead the ,Blue Devils sto victory
over North Carolina State. The
fourth man in this two team duo
is Dean Wright who sees plenty
of action at left half.

Rappold and Garner serve as
both barrels of the Duke aerial
howitzer together piling up 770
yards and 7 touchdowns passing,
with Rappold accounting for 366
of this total, before last week's
The speedy halfbacks are the
favorite targets of the signal call-
ers and Leggett and Wilson are
tops in pass receiving with 143
and 112 yards respectively.
Wilkinson, A Speedster
An important man in the Duke
offense is the lonesome end. The
Blue Devils are far from wanting
at this position with Jay Wilkin-
son, son of Oklahoma coach Bud
Wilkinson, utilizing his great
speed to elude would be defenders.
Through-out most of the season
opposing squads have kept two
men on him to minimize his of-
fensve pass catching capers.
Wilkinson, though an end, is the
deep man in receiving punts and
last week used his speed to ring
up 144 yards in punt returns re-
sulting in his consideration for
Back-of-the-Week by the Asso-
ciated Press. According to Mich-
igan interior line coach Jack
Fouts, "He really kicks up his
heels when he runs. If he gets
behind a defender he'll be very
hard to catch."
Two Deep
The Blue Devils are two deep at
every position and fullback is
no exception, where 207 lb. John
Tinnell and Dave Burch share the
duties. Both are rugged blockers
and aggressive runners, especially
on the belly series and also play
the linebackers positions on de-
At the end spots in addition to
Wilkinson are alternate captain
Dave Unser and Pete Widener,
both proven pass receivers.
Though fast and well drilled, the
Duke line wil spot Michigan a few

Like the rookie baseball player
who socks a home run in his first
major league at bat, the fleet
sophomore halfback who rambles
for a 25-yd. touchdown on his
first college play tends to make
people expect great things of him.
Few people knew much about
Dave Raimey, the 5'10", 190-lb.
halfback from Dayton, Ohio, until
he scored that first-play touch-
down against Oregon and few
people had cared. But the people
soon became curious, and when,
in his next game, against Duke,
he ran for 114 yards and scored
two touchdowns and was named
Midwest back-of-the-week by the
United Press International, they
became very curious.
Eventually, most people came to
know that he had been an All-
Stater for two years at'Dayton-
the only two years that he played
high school football; that he had
been a single wing fullback as a
junior and a wing-T halfback as
a senior; and that as a senior he
scored 19 touchdowns for two dif-
ferent schools because of a mid-
season transfer.
Raimey came to Michigan be-
cause, in his own words, "Michigan
was rebuilding, and Jack Fouts
(Wolverine interior line coach),
who is from Dayton, convinced,


me that I had a good future the injuries were more serious
here." than previously supposed.

He had planned to enter Ohio
State but, "I decided that the
Ohio State grind 'em out, cloud
of dust offense wouldn't be too
exciting to play on. They want
drivihg fullbacks, not halfbacks."
It is hard to deny that Dave
Raimey did fulfill the expecta-
tions of Wolverine fans through-
out the 1960 season, leading the
Maize and Blue regulars in yards
per carry with a 4.7 average. He
picked up 292 yards in 62 carries
and, in addition, led the team in
scoring with 36 points.
To top off all of these accom-
plishments, Raimey was selected
as Most Improved Wolverine in
1961 spi'ing football practice.
It is clear, then, that if people
expected big things of Raimey
last year, they expected even
greater things of him at the start
of this year.
By his fast start this season
against UCLA and Army, it seem-
ed a sure thing that Raimey was
going to surpass even the wildest
hopes for his effectiveness.
Then came a series of minor in-
juries which took their toll of
fleet halfback's speed and effec-
And people began to wonder if

But a touchdown in the Pur-
due game and his outstanding
performance in the loss to Min-
nesota served to dispel these ru-
This past week, Raimey played
most of the game on both offense
and defense and starred both
ways. Defensively, he picked off
two of Sandy Stephens' passes and{
displayed smart, heads-up play on
one of them when he lateraled off
to Bennie McRae, who had better
running room and who scamper-
ed almost fifty yards additional.
',I used to play defense all the
time in high school and I don't
mind playing it here."
In fact, Raimey believes that

this year's Minnesota game has
been his best college game to date
-even better than his famous
Duke game of last year-and he
has good reasons to back up his
In addition to the two intercep-
tions, he scored two touchdowns
and kept the Gopher defenses
loose all day.
From all indications, it would
seem that Raimey has been get-
ting better for the past two weeks.
This week, the Wolverines host
the Duke Blue Devils.
Against Duke last year, Raimey
was Midwest back-of-the-week.
This could be the week that
Raimey surpasses any previous
performance of his college ca-

The Grid Picks Games for the past two weeks have defied all
natural laws of probability.
The week before last was supposed to be tough, so it turned out to
be the best for the whole season. Last week was supposed to be easy,
but it was marred by upsets and was one of the hardest.
This week has to be the most difficult ever. Nobody can possibly
decide who will win the Ohio State-Iowa, Louisiana State-Mississippi
or Colorado-Missouri games.
No matter which way you pick, the other team will win. Or worse
yet, they'll probably tie.

tor this week, bring in your choices, including the Michigan score,

PDT, PGD, CP Move to Fraternity Finals;
Falcons, Sportsmen Win Under t;he Lights

Blue Mondays have become
week-long plagues this fall for a
University ofIllinois football team
that is currently leading the pack
toward the gridiron hard luck
award for the 1961 season.
The winless Illini broke into
their fall schedule with a handi-
cap. "We will probably have the
youngest Big Ten squad since the
war," declared head mentor Pete
Elliott soberly, referring to his all-
soph backfield running behind a
line of virtually untested newcom-
Now, Efivegames and five losses
later, Elliott finds himself faced
with an injury list that would
make any infirmary proud, a
schedule of remaining contests
that would make Duffy Daugher-
ty wince, and an all-soph back-
field running behinda line of vir-
tually untested newcomers.
Ron Fearn, 5'9" and.168 pounds,
started the season at the helm of.
the Illini offense with Mike Sum-
mers in the fullback slot arid
speedy Tom McCullum and Al
Wheatland at the halfs.
Mel Romani, a defensive end
for two years, found himself di-
recting the team from the quar-
terback slot along with Mike Tal-
iaferro until the latter was lost
for the season on an injury in-
curred while practicing for the
44-Q pasting at the hands of Ohio
The top Il-lini ground gainer has,
been Wheatland, while senior Dick
McDade compiled the best running
average until he found his leg in

a cast after the team was ripped
by Northwestern, 28-7.
Senior- end Dick Newell, lead-
ing Illini pass-grabber, came out
of the OSU game with a pain in
the neck, which perhaps summar-
izes the Buckeye encounter if not
the whole Illinois season. Newell
wasn't alone on the sick list.
Twelve of his teammates, includ-
ing Romani, Fearn, and the bulk
of the forward wall, were dam-
aged during the game.
Elliott had to scrape the bottom
of his talent barrel in order to
field a squad to meet Minnesota
the next week. Sandy Stephens
and the Gophers hardly made it
worth his while, 33-0.
In other disasters this fall,
Southern California and Wash-
ington preyed on the Big Ten cel-
lar-dwellers by 14-10 and 20-7
scores, respectively.
When Elliott dares 'to look
ahead he ~can see Purdue, fresh
from a 9-0 triumph over Iowa,
awaiting the Illini this Saturday,
to be followed in succession by
Michigan, Wisconsin, and Michi-
gan State.
Through the rain of defeat,
however, the Illini have been able
to pick out a few bright spots:
statistics show Elliott's gridders
committing a minimum of fumbles
and penalty mistakes, and the ad-
dition of senior Doug Mills has
boosted Illini punting power.
But in a battle of sinkor swim
the Illini appear doomed to a
grave on the bottom, where they
can always hope for next year-
or maybe the year after.

Sparked by tailback Jim New-

down pass to John Zanglas in the
first half to ice the game for the

adequate blocking couldn't put
togeher any kind of an offense.
Their tailback was continually

The second half of the game was
filled with fights as tempers
mounted on each-team. The other
two points scored by the Phi Delts
came on a safety midway through
the second half.
In the second place "A" semi-
final playoffs, Phi Gamma Delta
won a lopsided 28-0 victory over
Delta Tau Delta, and Chi Psi
squeeked-by Alpha Delta Phi, 6-0.
The Fijis completely dominated
their game. George Peapples led
the winners in scoring, chalking '
up two touchdowns. Other Fiji
scorers were Don McNeal and Don
Baron with a touchdown each.
Chi Psi and the Alpha Delts

played a nip and tuck game until
Bob Rowney intercepted a pass
and scored. Chi Psi had inter-
cepted several passes throughout
the game, but couldn't put to-
gether an offense.
In the semifinals of the third
place playoffs, Phi Epsilon Pi de-
feated Delta Kappa Epsilon, 12-
6, and Theat Xi topped Alpha

of the fourth place playoffs Phi

Under the Lights
The Falcons earned the right
to go to the first place play-offs
in the Professional Fraternity
League last night by thumping
Delta Sigma Delta, 16-0, under
the lights at Wines Field.
The Falcons, who have not lost
a game all season, scored early in
the first period as Bob Topp cap-
ped a sustained drive by tossing
a pass to Nick Kredich from the
ten yard line.
It was the Topp-Kredich com-
bination again that accounted for
the second tally late in the final

Stephens' Play Earns
'Back of Week' Award

By The Associated Press
Sandy Stephens, who has been
applying that golden winning
touch for Minnesota's Golden
Gophers, was selected the col-
lege football back of the week
yesterday in the Associated Press
The 215-pound quarterback, a
rugged and versatile Big Ten star,
was chosen for his clutch all-
round play in Minnesota's 23-20
victory over Michigan Saturday.
Minnesota, last year's national
champion and co-champion of the
Big Ten, has surged back for
four straight victories since its
opening day loss to Missouri-and
Stephens -has been the key.
Against Michigan Saturday, the
3-year varsity performer came
through with perhaps the finest
game he's had, exploiting his new-
iy developed talent as a passer,
showing his breakaway running
skill, and doing a' vital job de-
Stephens exploded on 'a 63-yard
scoring run and passed for the
two-point conversion in the sec-
ond quarter, but the Gophers
trailed Michigan 20-8 going into

the final period of their annual
battle for the Little Brown Jug.
Then Minnesota game back to
life. A 45-yard scoring pass play,
Stephens to John Campbell, was
followed by another Gopher touch-
down in the closing minutes, on
Judge Dickson's pldnge. Steph-
ens again threw for a two-point
conversion. On attack, he account-
ed for more than 300 of the 406
yards Minnesota gained.
Defensively, Stephens made a
last split-second deflection of a
Michigan pass late in the final
quarter that would have meant a
Wolverine touchdown and also
made an interception. Minnesota
Coach Murray Warmath, unstint-
ing in his praise - of the' sturdy
20-year-old from Uniontown, Pa.,
pointed to Stephens' pass deflec-
tion as one of the best plays he'd
ever seen.
