THE MICHIGAN DAILY
MSU Rebuilds Offensir

By BOB McFARLAND I
A host of sophomores and in-
experienced upperclassmen w i 11,
have to develop rapidly if the
Michigan State Spartans are go-
ing to make their presence felt
in the Big Ten this fall.
The Spartans lost All-American
halfback Sherman Lewis, hali-
backs Dewey Lincoln and Ron'
Rubick, and fullback Roger Lopes
through graduation. These four
speedsters accounted for 1,512
yards out of a total of 1,801 yards
gained by MSU on the ground last
year . Lewis and Lopes scored 15
of the 20 Michigan State touco-
downs as they led the Spartans
to a 6-2-1 season and a tie with
Ohio State for second dace in the
Big Ten. Earl Lattimer, an All-
American guard, and six other
first team linemen have also de-
parted.
Coach Duffy Daugherty has the
task of rebuilding the backfield
around junior quarterback Steve
Juday, a good ball handler with
fine leadership qualities. Playing
in only five games before suffer-
ing a shoulder separation which
sidelined him for the remainder
of the 1963 season, the MSU quar-
terback completed 30 of 68 passes
good for,509 yards and five touch-
downs. Dick Proebstle and Dave'
McCormick, both experienced at
the quarterback spot, are slated to
back up Juday.
Speed Problem
The rest of the backfield is a
question mark. Daugherty has
deemed backfield speed the most
critical problem of the 1964 Mich-
igan State scuad. Commenting on
speed, the MSU mentor said,
"Basically, speed is a God-given
gift. If a team has it, it's blessed.
If it hasn't, it's in trouble." Harry
Ammon and Dick Gordon, wno

appear to be the two leading :an-
didates for the vacant halfback
positions, are plodders in compar-
ison with Lewis, Lincoln and Ru-
bick. Daugherty plans to rely on
sophomores, if necessary, to pro-
vide the Spartans with th° break-
away threat.
Junior Ed Cotton will be ar
fullback Cotton, at 5-11 and 199,
was only in action for, three min-
utes last season, but he showed
much improvement in spring
practice.
A sophomore halfback, Clinton
Jones, has a good chance of break-
ing into the starting backfield as
the season progresses. Jones has
the quickness which Daugherty is'
searching for in a halfback. He:
ran the high hurdles in 13.8 sec-j
onds, the fastest time in the nation
for a high schooler, in 1962. Other
sophomores who figure to see ac-
tion with the Spartan offensive
attack are Jim Summers, Jerry
Jones and Larry Lukasik.
Seasoned Line;
The Michigan State offensive
wall is a seasonedeunit which
should prove to be, a major
strength this fall. Six lettermen
return to the Spartan line. Juniorl
guard John Karpinski (5-11, 199)
and Gene Washington (6-2, 204),
a rangy sophomore end, are the.
only non-seniors on the offensive
line. Tom Krzemienski at end (6-
0, 198), Jerry Rush (6-4, 240) and
Dick Flyin (6-1, 196) at tackle,
Rahn Bentley (5-9, 209) at guard,
and Don Ross (6-0, 194) at center
are the other members of the
MSU forward wall.
The untested defensive line is
another Spartan weakness. Only
