Varsity Cagers Slip by Freshmen, 59-57

OSU Students Demonstrate
As Council Votes No' on Bowl

The Michigan basketball team
ade its first appearance with a'
-57 victory over the freshman
am last night, and the feeling
as that it was a good thing it
as against the freshmen.
The varsity five survived some
ry cold shooting and some dis-
ppointing performances from the
wards to edge by a good fresh-

man squad, led by 6'7" Bill Bun-
tin. Buntin scored 20 points from
a variety of shots and drew sev-
eral ovations from the crowd of
over 1,000 with his defensive play.
Disappointing Performances
"We had some disappointing
performances and we had some
very good performances," Coach
Dave Strack said after the game.
"I'm very glad we played this

Ring Out the Old
" WOULD SAY it has been a successful season ... I don't think the
score of the game detracts from the team's play this year."
Minutes after absorbing a 50-20 trouncing which closed the year,
a slightly shaken and disheartened Bump Elliott still managed to find
a faint smile-it had been a good season.
The record looked good-six wins and three losses. One press
box wag pointed out that Elliott improves his record by one
game per year. "By 1964, MVichigan will go undefeated," he ob-
On the other hand, some alumni didn't feel quite that way, and
the poor attendance was indicative of this attitude. Although Michi-
gan trounced the non-conference opposition for the second year in a
row, the Wolverines lost the big ones. Traditional rivals Michigan
State and Ohio State administered decisive beatings to the Maize and
Blue and the Brown Jug stayed in Minneapolis for another year.
Losses to UCLA or Duke would have meant less to alums than
defeats by MSU, OSU and Minnesota. And despite the imprqvement
in the overall record and the conference mark, the Wolverines fell a
notch in the Big Ten standings. While a 2-4 mark was good enough
for a fifth-place tie in 1960, the 3-3 Michigan record this year put
them in sixth spot.
Attendance Disappointing.. .
Incidentally, football attendance figures were somewhat disap-
pointing to the athletic department and will probably mean subse-
quent cutbacks in the athletic program. Total attendance for seven
home contests was about 507,000 or a little better than 70,000 per
game. This figure was substantially boosted by the Michigan State
sell-out and was below expectations.
Thanksgiving holiday coupled with the regional telecast pre-
vented an OSU game sell-out. Television receipts, although huge,
go mainly to the Western Conference and NCAA, leaving little for
the home team.
At the beginning of the year, it looked like a great season for
ticket sales with a top West Coast squad, an Eastern name and a
highly-regarded Southern outfit all scheduled to perform in Ann Ar-
bor. Four conference games, including the two BIG ones were also o
the home card for the Wolverines. But even the Homecoming game
with a top-flight Purdue team turned out only some 69,000 fans. All
of which lends some credibility to the contention that winning the
big ones is more important to ticket sales than a winning season.
' Speaking of winners, it looks like that's what it takes to be gra-
cious in the OSU-Michig'an post-game ceremonies. Wolverine Coach
Bump Elliott, generally considered a nice guy around the league, very
brusquely shook hands with OSU mentor Woody Hayes after the
game. While one could appreciate the "hurt" feeling which Elliott
experienced when Hayes continued to pile up the score while the Wol-
verine mentor gave his reserves a chance to play, the incident was
viewed by thousands of television and in-person spectators and did
not help to create a favorable for Michigan.
Although Elliott was cordian enough in the locker room after
the incident, he missed an excellent opportunity to draw a dis-
itnction between his conduct and that which has typified Hayes
in the past. Many fans still recall Hayes' snub of Elliott two years
ago when the Wolverines pulled an upset on the Bucks.
But Hayes' action in running up the score against the Michigan
reserves proved to no avail, as his team continued to stay in the num-
ber two slot in the national ratings behind an idle Alabama team.
Hopes for a western New Year's jaunt were firmly jolted from
Hayes' mind when the Ohio State faculty voted not to send the team
yesterday, despite the Bucks' first-place conference finish. So Satur-
day's power play will mean little to OSU except to demonstrate the
Buckeye coach's warped sense of humor or sportsmanship.
Interesting Season...
While the Wolverines were ranked anywhere from Big Ten champ
to an also-rain in the generally unreliable pre-season forecasts, the
schedule which Michigan played indicated that it would at least be an
Interesting yar. It was, despite the three league losses. Perhaps the
Michigan record more than anything else represented the tremendous
football power of the Big Ten. While the Blue finished in the second
division, they still managed to polish off the West Coast's Rose Bowl
representative, UCLA, by a sound 29-6 count.
Michigan had its best year since 1956, the record clearly
shows. And those who watched the season's play could tell you that
the Wolverines looked better than they have in at least that many
years. The line was bigger and the backfield faster. This was the
first year that Elliott had coached the entire squad through all
its varsity competition, since he took over the reins three years
When they won, they looked unbeatable. And when they lost,
well, disappointment was heavier than usual. But that's the kind of
season it was-like a roller coaster. All of which is perplexing, when'
you try to figure out why 1961 must have been a good year for Michi-
gan football.

game. I hope it will serve as a
regular game for experience," he
continued. Strack also hoped that
the varsity got its bad game out
of the way for the opening game
with Ball State College this Sat-
Strack singled out center John
Harris and forward John Ooster-
baan as the pest performers for
the varsity. Oosterbaan led in
scoring with 20 points, while Har-
ris had 18 and surprised with
some good rebounding.
Up To Him
"I think John (Harris) felt it
wasup to him to do the Job on
Buntin and he went out and did
it," Strack said. Strack has been
more than concerned with the re-
bounding of his small team and
Harris gave a little encouragement
in this department, although
Strack said that there still need-
ed to be, improvement.
Harris, 6'5", held his own
against the taller and heavier
Oosterbaan settled down after a
rocky first half which saw him
draw five personal fouls, enough
to foul out of a regular game. He
scored six buckets in the second
half to lead the varsity's final
surge, besides sparkling on de-

cause of the two that got away.
Stager complained about the
sprintsas being "where we really

the Wolverines placed four men
in both events, their highest fin-

trell. Hall was 0-5 from the floor,
while Cantrell hit on a dismal 1-7.
Both teams were shooting for a
poor percentage (the half-time
score was only 25-23), but it
seemed to affect the play of Hall
and Cantrell the most.
Strack's offense depends a great
deal on the guards for passing
and organizing the offense. With
the poor shooting came bad passes
and a slow offense.
Substituted Herner
Strack finally substituted Doug
Herner, another sophomore, for
Hall in the second half to add
"speed." "Jon just didn't seem to
get 'into' the game like he usually
does," Strack said. "Bob missed his
first couple shots and then started
pressing. He wanted to get that
first basket and started to take
bad shots, and it got worse."
The game itself was very close
all the way, with the lead see-
sawing back and forth. The var-

sity finally pulled ahead by five
points midway through the second
half when Buntin was taken out
for a rest.
The freshmen, led by Larry
Tregoning, fought back and still
were in the ball game until the
final minute when Oosterbaan
blocked George Pomey's shot.

By The Associated Press
Ohio State's faculty council has
said "no" to OSU's participation
in this New Year's Rose Bowl
The decision set off fireworks in
Columbus where 5,000 yelling,
singing,- sign - waving students
swept through the town.
Under Big Ten regulations, the'
council is the final authority in
athletic matters and a majority
vote was required to send the
Bucks td Pasadena. The vote was
28 to 25.
The Ohio State gridders had
previously voted to play in the
Bowl game. The Bucks have par-
ticipated in four previous Rose
Bowl games.
At least a dozen faculty mem-'
bers expressed opinions /on the
controversial subject during the
meeting yesterday and most of
them flatly opposed the bowl ven-

Chief objections appeared to be:
1) A trip would disrupt the nor-
mal academic life of the school.
2) The university has become
known as a "football school" and
this has hurt the university's
academic standing.
3) Absence from campus of fac-
ulty members hampers the opera-
tion of the administration.
4) The Rose Bowl is a com-
mercial enterprise.
5) The 'council already had ex-
pressed a decision on the matter
and a change in that decision
would hurt the school's prestige.
6) The Bowl game would only
be arrehash ofea gameplayed
earlier in the season when, Ohio
beat UCLA, 13-3.
Proponents argued that if the
council was going to ban cowl
appearances, similar outside ac-
tivities also should be curtailed,.
Others contended that refer-
ences to Ohio State as a football
school were not factual and that
post-season games did not hurt
Ohio's academic standing.
Students Demonstrate
Ohio State students, who had
backed Coach Woody Hayes' grid-
ders to an 8-0-1 record this fall,
swept' into downtown Columbus
last night.
Police blocked off traffic as the
students surged the three miles

from the campus to the statehouse
steps. The demonstration was or-

Keen Faces Rebuilding Task
With '61 Wolverine Grapplers

Wolverine wrestling coach Cliff
Keen is faced with a major re-
building job as he and his charges
prepare for the 1961-62 season
opener at Hofstra College.
Last year Michigan finished
second in the Big Ten, four points
behind Michigan State.
Seven members of last year's
team have graduated. Among them
were Jim Blaker, a two-time Big
Ten 147-lb. champion; team cap-
tain Dennis Fitzgerald, also a
two-time Big Ten champ, at 167;
Karl Fink, runner-up in the heavy-
weight division; and Willard Root,
fourth in the 115-lb. class.
Sophomores Fill Gap
To fill the vacancies created by
the departures of the graduated
seniors, Keen has a flock of prom-
ising sophomores. "Some of these
sophomores will be green at first,
but they'll be working on their
weaknesses, and if they develop

as we think they can, we'll be
okay," he admits.
Of the losses themselves, Keen
is frankly regretful. "You always
get hurt when you lose men like
that. ,We lost seven of twelve
In addition-to Hofstra, which is
located in Hempstead, N. Y., the
Wolverines will have to face Nevy,
Indiana, Pitt, Purdue, Ohio State,
Wisconsin, Northwestern, Iowa,
Michigan State and Minnesota in
dual meets. On December 28 and
29 they will travel to Wilkes Col-
lege in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. to par-
ticipate in the 30th Annual Wilkes
Open Wrestling Tournament,
which Keen calls "the top col-
legiate Open wrestling tournament
in the nation," and in which Mich-
igan finished second last year.
The other two tournaments are,
of course, the Big Ten Meet, which
will be held at Minneapolis this

year on March 2 and 3, and the
1N.C.A.A. meet at Stillwater, Okla.,
on March 23, 24 and 25.
Tough Teams Scheduled
Looking at the schedule, Keeh
notes that there are more than
a few "rough" teams which will
battle for the Big Ten champion-
"Michigan . State (last year's
conference leader) will be, very
tough, of course. So will Iowa and
Illinois. Northwestern will prob-
'ably have the greatest team it has
ever had this year. But the real
darkhorse may be Minnesota. They
lost 17 men last year by ineligi-
bility and injury, and if they can
get together all the talent they
should have, they could be the
best team in the conference," he
"As far as out-of-conference
teams are concerned, we've sched-
uled two of the East's perennially
strongest teams-Pittsburgh and
Navy-and one of its toughest
small-college teams, Hofstra," he
It is still too early in the sea-
'son for Keen to have arrived at
exact weight assignments, but he
is reasonably sure of some.
Three sophomores-Carl Rhodes,
Mike Palmisano and Ralph Bahna
-will battle for the 123-lb berth;
junior Nick Armelagos, a 115 and
123 pounder last year, and sopho-
more Gerald Wilcox will be at 130.
Fritz Kellerman, Big Ten 130-lb
champion for two years, will move
up to 137 this year; and Jim
Keen, sophomore son of the Wol-
verine mentor, Jim Potter and
Doug Kuziak, currently hindered
by a sprained ankle and who may
well switch to 137, will battle it
out at 147.
Sophomore Wayne Muller ap-
pears to be the only contender at
Captain-at 167
Captain Don Corriere or sopho-
more Bill Erwin will wrestle at
167, with Corriere possibly moving
up to 177. Bill Florence, a sopho-
more, or Mike Vuocolo, a foot-
baller, will hold down the 177
spot; and Jack Barden, a junior
and runner-up at 191 last year,
will wrestle heavyweight along
with footballers Guy Curtis and
Dave Mongeau.
With these tentative weight as-
signments, Keen begins his 37th
season as head Wolverine wrest-
ling coach. In his own words,
"We've got a good, strong nucleus
and a lot of sophomores. All we
have to do is get going."
