Farabee Shuns Hero's Role
OSU Readies Massive Deterrent
* By BOB CARNEY
Two seasons ago, a sophomore
end named Ben Farabee stepped
into the Michigan limelight with
a 43 yard interception return
Picking it off on the Illinois
44, Farabee raced to the one yard
line to set up Michigan's second
score and a 14-10 victorys
Since that game, the limelight
has eluded Farabee, and the start-
ing li'neup has only infrequently
included his name. For this rea-
son there's been a temptation to
overlook him when talk centers
on the key factors in Michigan's
In the eyes of the Michigan
coaches, however, Farabee's role
in making the Wolverines a title
contender has been much more
"Ben's been a potential starter
for the past two years," says end
coach Jocko Nelson. "He's always
been one of our top ends. But his
versatility has made him more
valuable to us as an alternate.
He plays not only offense and
defense, but both left and right
end as well."
The '64 season has seen added
improvement in Farabee, who
spent the latter part of last sea-
son on the sidelines mending a
broken wrist. According to Nel-
son, Farabee is playing more con-
sistently than ever.
"Ben has reached his peak,"
says Nelson. "As a result, we felt
that he deserved the added rec-
ognition of a starting spot against
Iowa. But whether he's starting
or not, there's been a place in
every'game for him."
In Farabee's own mind, his im-

"First, I think the platoon sys-
tem has helped me," Farabee says.
"Specialization has given more of
us a chance to play. Secondly, I
think my blocking has improved
Farabee's added blocking skill
has been attributed by his coaches
to the determination he has ex-
hibited over the past two years.
"He's a hustler," says Nelson.
"It's a familiar sight to see num-
ber 80 downfield rolling at some-
Head Coach Bump Elliott adds
that "Farabee's one of the hard-
est workers we've had."
In reward for thee efforts, Far-
abee has played extensively on
both the offense and the defense
since his sophomore year. Of the
two, he prefers defense.
"On defense," says Farabee,
"you know your job, and they've
got to move you. Actually, they
are on the defensive."
Last Saturday, however, Fara-
bee held down the starting spot
at the left offensive end. In the
Michigan offensive setup the left
end1 remains tight while the right
end is split. Farabee favors this
tight position to the publicized
split end spot, which is utilized
more often as a pass receiver.
"There's more action inside,
and the tight end is inside most
of the time," says Farabee. "And
I'd rather be blocking then catch-
ing passes anyway."

"Something's got to give" as the
powerful Wolverine offense squares
off against the "monster" OSU
defense this weekend.
"Ohio State is an extremely
strong defensive team," explained
head coach Bump Elliott yester-
day. "Their particular forte is
rushing defense, and they are
one of the leaders in that de-

Michigan has consistenly rolled up
around 250 yards rushing per
game, leading the nation in this
department for the past two weeks,
the Buckeyes have limited their
conference opponents to a scant
77 yards a game.

The burden of the game might
be pushed more on the shoulders
of the defense Saturday, for two
of the Buckeyes offensive back-
field starters are out of acLion.
Willard Sander, leading scorer for
OSU, will see limited action due
to injuries received in the North-
western game last week. He will
be relieved by sophomore Paul
Judson, who saw his first action
against the Wildcats last Saturday.

been used by Hayes only sparingly

Bob Rein will have to assume a

Unverferth scored the touch-
down that beat the Wolverines
14-10 in Ann Arbor last year. As
a passer, the 208 pound junior
has averaged over 7.5 yards per
completion, which is tops in the
conference. In total offense he
has averaged better than 5.5 yards
in the Big Ten in that category
Rein is only a sophomore and
he has been averaging in the
neighborhood of 4 yards per carry
all season. He has good speed and
is a deceptive runner.
The Buckeyes use a platoon sys-
tem and have ten lettermen in
the starting defensive positions.
The lone exception is John Fill,
a sophomore halfback.
The defensive right tackle will
probably be Ed Orazen, 6', 228
pounds, who started both his
sophomore and junior years but
missed last year's Michigan con-
test for disciplinary reasons.

While the defense has been a
strongpoint of the OSU team,
Elliott was quick to point out that
their offense, "regardless of vnom
they have starting," is a strong
one. Unverferth has completed
over fifty per cent of his passes,

Hayes certainly will miss the
loss, or partial loss, of two mem-

the Buckeyes have according to
Elliott, "plenty of good men that

Michigan held down sixth place
in the Associated Press college
football poll again this week, after
defeating Iowa 34-20.
With only one game left in the

Penn State, blanked Northwestern

Syracuse beat Virginia Tech

Holland High in Michigan. He
credits his first coach there, Ed
Damson as the one who inspired
him to go on in football, after
giving him a strong training in
the fundamentals of the game.
Partly because of this early
training, Farabee received three
college offers when he graduat-
ed from Holland. Besides Michi-
gan, Northwestern and Western
Michigan were after him. His de-
cision to attend Michigan was
based on several factors.
"Of course the academic stand-
ing at Michigan was a major
factor," says Farabee, "but it was
the coaching staff that really sold
me. I think the coaches here are
one of the main reasons athletes
Another reason for Farabee's
choice of Michigan was the fact
that Michigan had finished the
1959 season with a losing 4 and 5
season, and the opportunity to
play looked good.

Michigan will be shooting for a
statistical title as well as the Big
Ten championship when it plays
Ohio State Saturday.
For the third straight week the
Wolverines are leading the nation
in rushing. Grounding out an av-
erage of 253.3 yards a game, the
powerful Michigan rushing attack
has been the key factor in bring-
ing the Wolverines a 7-1 record.-
Ranked fifth in total offense,
the Wolverines have chalked up a
total of 364.3 yards a game.
Following close behind Michigan
in rushing, Syracuse has driven
for 243.3 yards, a game, and Ne-
braska is averaging 242.1 yards
on the ground.
The Tulsa Hurricanes, led by
the accurate spirals of quarterback
Jerry Rhome, have pulled far out
in front of the pack in total of-
fense. The undefeated Hurricanes
have gained 475 yards a game.
Notre Dame, with an average of
409.6 yards to its credit, is Tulsa's
The Hurricanes, with two games
to play, already have surpassed
three NCAA major college records.
They have pitched for 2,604 yards,
202 completions, and 29 touch-
downs, wiping out two marks they
set in 10 games last year. Those
were 2,448 yards passing and 199
completions. Nevada in 1948 and
