Spartans Revamp Offense

Hawkeyes Tough in Spite of Three Losses

Coach Murray Warmath, whose

the regulars the rest of the day

remainder of the team stayed out

offense and defense.

In spite of their three straight
losses, Iowa is still rated as a rough
team by Michigan end coach Jocko
Nelson.
"The weather killed them at
Purdue," said Nelson, referring to
the Hawkeyes' first loss of the
season three weeks ago at Lafay-
ette. "It was sloppy and passing
was difficult.
"They got all the bad breaks
against Ohio State and Purdue,"
Nelson continued. The loss to Min-
nesota last week was the crushing
blow to Iowa's hopes of a confer-
ence championship. It relegated
the Hawkeyes to a tie for sixth
place in the Big Ten.
They lost to Minnesota 16-9 and
a blocked punt recovered by the
Gophers in the end zone turned
out to be the margin of victory.
"Minnesota used our offense,
the split end, against them," Nel-
son said. With experience against
this offense already this season,
Iowa will probably be able to de-
fend better against Michigan.
Preseason Favorite
The Hawkeyes were slated to be
one of wthe top teams in the na-
tion by many of the preseason
polls. They had a balanced attack
with good passing from quarter-
back Wilburn Hollis and a good
running attack from All-America
candidate Larry Ferguson. But
injuries struck and Hollis and
Ferguson were lost for the season.
But as in basketball last year, a

new star emerged off the bench,
Matt Szykowny. Although he1
lacked the all-around ability of
Hollis, he was a standout passer.
And Iowa continued to roll. They
defeated Indiana 27-8 and bombed
Wisconsin 47-15. But against Pur-
due the roof caved in and in a
downpour, the Hawkeyes' bid for
an undefeated season collapsed.
Three Straight Losses
Their loss to Ohio State was no
great surprise, but the loss to Min-
nesota was the real shock.
Now with three straight losses
under its belt, the Hawkeyes in-
vade Ann Arbor. And how long has
it been since a good Iowa team
has lost three straight?
Nelson rates them as a goodall-
around team. "Szykowny is a very
good quarterback; one of the best
players in collegiate ball." Indeed
he must be with 49 completions for
83 attempts (not including the
Minensota game) for 596 yards
and five touchdowns.
"He drops straight back and his
favorite targets are ends Cloyd
Webb and Felton Rogers," said
Nelson.
As for their defense, Nelson feels
it isn't as bad as their scores indi-
cate. "There's nothing wrong with
their pass defense; one of Ohio
State's touchdown passes was an
eigl\t-yard pass and five missed
tackles."
Fumbles Hurt
However, one thing that can't

be overlooked about Iowa is their
recent sloppy play. They had three
fumbles and three intercepted
passes against Minnesota in addi-
tion to the blocked punt. After two
games of "bad breaks" it doesn't
seem likely that they'll continue.
Even with Hollis and Ferguson
gone, Nelson rates the backfield
as good. "The halfbacks, Paul
Krause and Sammie Harris, have
good speed, and, Bill Perkins is

their fullback; he's the bread and
butter man."
Perkins is a converted end, and
the Hawkeye's previous first string
left halfback, Joe Williams, has
not started the last couple of
games.
Practice Notes
Tackle Jon Schopf and fullback
and defensive specialist Ken Tu-
reaud returned to practice yester-

day for the first time in weeks.
Tureaud has been pronounced
ready to play in Saturday's game
after missing the last three games
because of a leg injury. It is still
uncertain whether Schopf will be
able to play, but he practiced for
the first time in weeks.
The Wolverines worked on pass
defense yesterday in preparation
for the aerial attack of Iowa's Matt
Szykowny.

The Ann Arbor Rugby Club will
face the University of Toronto at
Wines Field immediately after the
Michigan-Iowa football game.
Admission is free to the contest.
The match will be the final ap-
pearance of the Rugby Club this
season. Previously they have beat-
en The University of Toronto.
Blues at Toronto, the Toronto
Bank of Commerce and University
of Sarnia here at Wines field.
Lose One
The Rugby Club's only loss this
season came at the hands of The
Toronto Nomads in a very close
match. The Nomads won by a slim
4-3 margin.

the few rugby teams 4n the Mid-
west; yet, they rank with some of
the country's best Eastern teams.
The main reason for this is play-
ing coach Whata Whiniata. Whi-
niata is the New Zealander who
captained the U. of New Zealand
rugby team before coming to Mich-
igan.
Experienced Players
The club also features other
men well know in Rugby circles.
Charles Dayton and John Edwards
both played rugby for Dartmouth.
Dayton was captain of the team
there.
Froncie Gutman, ex-all Big Ten
quarterback from Purdue is a stal-
wart on the rugby club. Acting
captain and president of the Ann
Arbor Rugby Club is John Apple-
ford.
The Ann Arbor Rugby Club will
resume its season in the Spring
after the final Fall match here
Saturday.
Rugby is similar to American
football with more action. There
is no forward pass, and the ball'
is in constant play. This makes
for a much faster and exciting
game.

Although the Ann Arbor Rugby
Club is not sponsored by the Uni-
versity of Michigan, it plays its
games at Wines Field immediate-
ly after home football games. The
team is composed primarily of
graduate students, many of'whom
are from foreign countries where
rugby is played extensively.
Saturday's match will be a hard
fought contest as it is the f-inal
game of the season for each team.
