YE, BYE, BENNIE-Coach Bump Elliott is hoping a shoulder injury doesn't mean bye, bye to
alfback Bennie McRae's chances to play against' Ohio State Saturday. They'd rather see him go
ye into the secondary as he does here against Army. Defensive back Tom Cunningham (30) tries

Left halfback Bennie McRae
thinks he might have a chance to
play this Saturday against Ohio
State despite a deep bruise and
slight separation of his left shoul-
der, but his replacement, Jack
Strobel, and starting center Todd
Grant have had it.
Strobel and Grant, who both
underwent surgery Sunday morn-
ing, were victims of those crippling
knee injuries which have cut down
the Wolverines' ranks for the last
Left end Scott Maentz, the
team's best punter, is doubtful,
nursing a sprained ankle, and
tackle Jon Schopf may miss his'
fourth straight game with the
shoulder separation he suffered
in the Minnesota game.
McRae, who made a diving
catch of quarterback Dave Glinka's
28-yd. pass on Michigan's first
series of downs and carried fo:
four yds. around right end two
plays .later, explained, "I was
tackled. When I lowered my
shoulder it just so happened, that

right on the top of my shoulder-
right on the top.
Wouldn't Happen Again
"It probably wouldn't happen
again in 100 years.
"It's just sore now. If I can
get to the point where I can
raise my hands to catch passes.
I'll play. I'll know by Wednesday."
Except for these little setbacks,
though, things are just fine with
Coach Bump Elliott and his staff.
Really, Elliott knows it could have
If McRae can't play, Elliott
pointed out several possibilities of
shifting the lineup. He could start
third-stringer Harvey Chapman,
who was so instrumental in Michi-
gan's second-half comeback by
gaining 71 yds. in five carries.
"Harvey did a fine job Satur-
day and there's every possibility
he could start," Elliott said. "But
we're also contemplating a few
changes to strengthen both half-
back positions. Ken Tureaud has
had some experience at left half
and there's a possibility of switch-
ing Ed Hood from right half."
Getting More Strength
Tureaud, second-string fullback
and one of the Big Ten's top line-
backers, "is getting fore strength
in his leg every day," related El-
liott, "We're hoping he can be
close to 100 per cent Saturday."
Tureaud has been out with a
pinched nerve in his leg and saw
only limited duty against Iowa
Center John Walker, who has
career, missed practice with every-
three knee operations during his

"he bumped his knee and his
ankle a little," according to Elliott,
but should be ready to start for
Grant against the Buckeyes.

After being assured of his best
season in three years as Michi-
gan coach, Bump Elliott must now
figure out how to stop Ohio State.-
This will definitely not be an easy
task and Elliott needs only askI
assistant coach Jack Fouts to find
out how difficult.

The fantastic ending of Satur-

won by Notre Dame 17-15 on a
field goal after time officially had

Likewise winless in Big Ten play,
Indiana will try its hopes for a

Purdue at Bloomington. The Hoos-

now with a 3-2 Big Ten mark,
dropped out of contention for the

night that it had held a draft prior

It violated an agreement with

MIAMI - Louisiana State Uni-
versity received an invitation yes-
terday to play in the Orange Bowl
football game against a Big Eight
team to be selected later.
Van C. Kussrow, Orange Bowl
chairman, announced LSU's selec-
tion after ancommittee meeting,
but he declined to speculate on the
Big Eight choice.
"The Big Eight representative
will be selected at the conclusion
of the season," he said in a formal
announcement, adding informally
that the committee, "although not
obligated to do so, usually selects
the Big Eight champion."
That would give Colorado the
bid. Kansas, however, has been!
mentioned as a top contender, es-
pecially after its 53-7 victory over
California. Colorado has a 6-1
record and Kansas a 6-1-2 mark,

ST. LOUIS (P)-Owner Ben Ker-
ner dipped into the ranks of his
13 former coaches yesterday and
picked Fuzzy Levane to coach the
slumping St. Louis Hawks for the
balance of the 1961-62 National
Basketball Association season..
Levane, 41, succeeds Paul Sey-
mour, 33, who was fired Friday
amid evidence of a widening rift
between him and his veteran front
line of Bob Pettit, Clyde Lovellette
and Cliff Hagan.
No terms were announced, but
Levane said Kerner had been "very
generous" with him.
Levane, a veteran of 15 years
in pro basketball as a player and
coach, piloted the old Milwaukee
Hawks and the New York Knicker-
bockers. He was the NBA's coach
of the year at New York in 1958-
