Uprooted Rick

Volk Handles Halfback Job TIMBERLAKE LISTED:
Michigan Holds Sixth
ent against Namy to 33 per -.-

When Michigan opened its foot-
ball season this year, Rick -olk
was listed as an offensive quarter-
back, yet so far the sophomore
has yet to see any action as a
signal caller.
Instead, Volk has become a reg-
ular in the Wolverines' defensive
secondary, and last week made his
debut in Michigan's offensive line-
up as a left halfback.
"I was switched to left halfback
a couple of weeks ago, mainly to
give some protection to that posi-
tion. Jack Clancy is out for the
season, and John Rowser is still

hurt, so I was moved to offensive
halfback to fill in," Volk said yes-
Eighth Grade Halfback
"I played a little offensive half-
back when I was in eighth grade,
but I was a quarterback all the
way through high school.
"There is an awful lot that I
have to learn about the halfback
slot such as who to block, and to
listen to the calls of the linemen,
but Rick Sygar and Jim, Detwiler
have been helping me out a lot,
and I'm beginning to feel more at
home in the position every day,"
,he explained.
Last weekend, Volk came into
the offensive backfield for three
successive plays and carried the
ball for a total of 12 yards.
On defense Volk has become
fixture in the Michigan backfield.
Since the season's opener. with the
Air Force, the pass completion
percentage against the Wolverines
has fallen from 57 per cent to 49

cent against Michigan State. Pur-
due was more successful last week
as it netted 40 per cent.
'Team Effort'
Volk credits this decrease "to a
real team effort. Since the Air
Force game, we have worked a lot
on pass defense, and the linemen
have been putting a great rush on
the offensive quarterbacks.
"As a result, they have to rush
their passes more or run with the ,
ball. The statistics reflect a little
too much of the pass defense im-
provement on the defensive backs,
because it is a team effort that
makes breaking up a pass pattern
and interceptions possible."
Defensive backfield coach Don
Dufek was quick to agree with
Volk's analysis. "It has been the
improvement of the team as a
whole that has made for a tight-
ening up in the defensive back-

In Offensive Yardage

Michigan's Wolverines are cur-
rently sixth in the nation in to-
tal offense and seventh in rush-
ing among the major colleges.
The National Collegiate Athlet-
ic Bureau also lists Michigan quar-
terback Bob Timberlake among
the leaders in individual total of-
fense and scoring departments in
the weekly tabulations.
Ranked sixth in the nation in
total offense, the Wolverines are{
ahead of all the Big Ten teams'
in that category. Tulsa, a passing
team, holds the top spot nation-
ally with an average of 476.3
yards per game. Of this totalI
305.3 yards per game have been
gained via the airwaves.
'M' Tops Big Ten
Of the Bid Ten teams, Michi-
gan's 376.3 yards per game aver-
age is most nearly approached by
Indiana, which has averaged 340.5
yards but is still ninth in the con-
ference standings.
The Wolverines' 237.0 yard av-
erage on the ground earns it the
seventh position, while Nebraska,
rated fifth in the nation in the
AP Poll, is on top in this division
with a 280.6 yard average. How-
ever, none of Nebraska's ground
gainers earned a spot among the
top 20 individual rushers. No oth-
er Big Ten teams were listed
among the offensive leaders.
Timberlake Ranks 11th
Timberlake's 726 yards in four
games put him into the eleventh
position among the nation's indi-
vidual leaders in' total offense.
Indiana's quarterback and Co-cap-
tain Rich Badar is ranked num-
ber five because of his 810 yards
gained, also for four games.
Jerry Rhome, Tulsa's record-
smashing quarterback, who led

the nation last year in passing, is
on the top of the heap in total
offense with 1,148 yards for four
games. He has piled up 1,035
through the air, as he has thrown
15 touchdown passes thus far this
season, best in both deptartments
. However, Timberlake's position
is better than that indicated, since
six of the 10 men in front of
him have competed in five games
whereas his total is for four. The
6'4" senior has averaged 181.5
yards per game, which places him
sixth in yardage per game.
Timberlake 16th in Scoring
Timberlake is also tied for 16th
in individual scoring with 30
points. Purdue's quarterback and
placekicker, Bob Griese, showed
up here, as ironically one point
ahead of Timberlake with 31.
Tulsa, which passed more than
any other team in the nation last,
year, placed end Howard Twilley
in the top scoring spot with 52
points on six touchdown passes
and 16 extra points.
Alabama, third in the rankings
this week, is the leading defend-
er, giving up a stingy 134.6 yards
per game in five contests.
Notre Dame Leads
Notre Dame's phenomenal dq-
fense has held its opposition to
a mere 33.5 yards per carry on
the groundin its first four games
to lead the nation in .that depart-
ment. Michigan's defense, which
has given up only 89 yards' per
game rushing, did not earn a
berth with the 10 leaders. Prince-
ton rated tenth among them, re-
linquished 78.5 yards per game
to rushers. The Big Ten is rep-
resented by Illinois (68.5) and
Ohio State (74.8), in the fourth
and seventh slots in yards allowed

President Warren Giles called'the
special league meeting in New
York to "further discuss the Mil-

action thereon." -
Giles reportedly talked to club
owners by telephone Tuesday
morning. Whether his conversa-
tions with the owners had any
bearing on the Braves' action yes-
terday was conjectural.
Government officials, civic lead-
ers and fans joined in criticizing
the Braves' proposed move.

"This is a sad day for base-

Braves are showing a callous lack
of faith in the people of Milwau-
kee and Wisconsin."

prevent the move, and I am re-
questing the attorney general's of-
fice to make its staff and facilities
available to Milwaukee county in

Mayor Henry Maier said the
Braves' action would remove any
illusion that baseball is a sport
rather than a business.

A survey taken by The Daily sports staff yesterday showed the
unquestionable loyalty to the mighty Wolverines by the vast majority
of the grid picks prognosticators. Over 99.44 per cent of the partici-
pators in last week's contest selected Michigan over Purdue to auto-
matically cut their victory total by one.
As an aid to readers, The Daily reaffirms its belief that the .56
who picked the outcome of the Purdue-Michigan game correctly did
so solely on luck and should use better judgment in attempting to win
