Pasadena or Purgatory:
Confrontation at Columbus
Pasadena or purgatory?
This was the lead sentence one sports writer used at the start of
the week to summarize the situation tomorrow when Michigan and
Ohio State battle for the Big Ten championship and a Rose Bowl bid.
A victory tomorrow means the difference between an exceptional and
just a very good season for both teams. Anytime University President
Harlan Hatcher speaks to a pep rally with his pants rolled up above
his knees, the occasion must be considered fairly important.
Playing Ohio State for the championship is a perfect ending to
the regular season. For although the Buckeyes are probably the best
team the Wolverines meet this season, they are also the easiest to
hate. Defeating Michigan State was sweet indeed but a victory over
Ohio State-whether a Rose Bowl bid is at stake or not-is somehow
more satisfying.
Maybe it's because the Ohio State image is that of a fat Woody
Hayes pacing the sidelines in his baseball cap and short-sleeved white
shirt. Hayes could be the most hated coach in the Big Ten. He cer-
tainly is in Ann Arbor. (Question: Could anyone ever really hate jovial
Duffy Daugherty. Answer: His team and school yes, but not Duffy.)
No one has forgotten the 1961 game when Woody ran up a 50-20
score against a crippled Michigan team. "Those extra touchdowns
won't hurt Michigan," Woody said after the game. 'Our boys deserve
the number one spot and if the extra couple of touchdowns will help
them get it, so much the better." Hayes almost accomplished his goal
but not quite. Alabama edged out Ohio State 459 points to 452 on
that week's poll and finished the season No. 1 and ahead of the
Buckeyes. Nobody in Ann Arbor was unhappy either when a day
later the Ohio State faculty council denied the Buckeyes the right
to accept the Rose Bowl bid.
There are quite a few Ohio players on the Michigan team in-
cluding eight of the 11 on the first-string offensive unit. And that
doesn't include John Marcum who was born in Ohio but made it
across the border in time to play high school ball at Monroe. These
players are hungry for victory, but no more than the rest of the
team. It's been a long time-14 years-since Michigan has played in
the Rose Bowl at Pasadena. It's way past time now. Go Blue!

"Saturday's the big one .
we're going to beat those Buck-
eyes . . . Ohio State's just a
name . ."
These are the thoughts running
through the mind of a student
teacher at Ann Arbor's Forsythe
Jr. High School. The physical edu-
cation instructor is Michigan of-
fensive guard John Marcum.
"The game has been in my mind
all week . . you can't get away
from it. I go home to relax and
turn on the radio only to hear
something about the Ohio State
Lost Three Times
Marcum has previously been on
three Michigan teams that have
fallen to Ohio State. As a sopho-
more in 1961, he injured his knee
in the final scrimmage before the
season opener and was forced to
sit out the entire year. "I was
third string when I got hurt. That
was a tough year for our guards
as we had six or seven knee in-
juries including one to Joe O'Don-
nell (last year's captain)."
The 6', 210-pound guard, with
an extra year of eligibility, proved
himself in the fall of the 1962 sea-
son and was given a starting
Diag Rally
Draws 4000
A spirited throng upwards of
4,000 gathered en masse on the
diag last night to cheer on Coach
Bump Elliott and his fiery Wol-
verine football team.
Wally Weber, Dr. Hazel Losh,
and the Michigan Band got things
rolling with the excitement reach-
ing a peak upon the appearance
of "Professor Elliott and his
young scholars," as University
President Harlan Hatcher called
The confident group received
choruses of "Go Blue" and victory
On the backs of the players
were signs that read: "OPERA-
STATE." Elliott expressed his ap-
preciation by saying that he was
thrilled with the turnout and said
the team was going to Columbus
for one reason: "to defeat the
Ohio State Buckeyes."
President Hatcher joined in the

"I played a rather poor game
and ended up playing the rest of
the season behind Dave Kurtz,"
he says.
Marcum looked back on his in-
jury and realized that if he hadn't

been hurt for a season, he
wouldn't have the opportunity to
play tomorrow against Ohio State.
"You know," he said, "I'm almost
glad I was hurt. I'll tell you more
after the game!"
Last season, Marcum alternated
with Rich Hahn at right guard.
Hahn played about 30 minutes

more than Marcum. With this star recalled yesterday when

rule Marcum has been a stalwart and then at Monroe High Sehool

in football, the Wolverine offensive rection and his coaching made
college football a little easier."
Impressed by Coaches
"I always wanted to go to Mich-
igan State but when I visitedithe
* two schools I was sold on Michi-
gan. Coach Elliott and his staff
really impressed me . . . and, of
course, Michigan's a much better
educational institution."
Ty Marcum has evidently hit Big
Ten football this year with a ven-
geance. The former prep captain
and All-State selection was singled
out this week by offensive line
coach Tony Mason as "the best
guard in the conference."
"John has a great heart for
football. He's dedicated, just like
theentire line," Mason explained.
:> . :< ."": Mason praised Marcum as being
part of a synchronized unit-the
offensive line.
'More Unified'
"This year's team is more uni-
fled than past Michigan teams
in which I've been a part," Mar-
cum continued. "I first got the
feeling of how, close the players
. were to each other last spring.
Maybe itewas the addition of
Coach Mason whose spirit added
some zip to the team."

Mason went on to point uuti
Marcum's exceptional abilities.
"He has good speed and adjusts
very well to changing defensive
patterns. Despite his having more
experience than most of the of-
fensive linemen, John has im-
proved tremendously."
The subject of Ohio State once
again returned to Marcum's mind,
remembering the impressive size
of the Ohio State team. "Their
offensive line is much larger than
their defense. I -feel that we can
get the job done."
Likes 'Rangy' Opponent
Marcum pointed out that he
prefers playingnopposite a "big,
tall rangy fellow. Someone who is
shorter and more compact is more
difficult to block out of the play,"
he says.
Illinois' defensive star Bill Mi-
nor (6'l", 217) played opposite
Marcum in most of the Illini
game. "Minor was not that tough

This week's Guest Grid Selectors are Gerry Mader, Michigan's
defensive right tackle and Brian Patchen, offensive center. While
making their selections, they had some difficulty agreeing but there
was complete agreement on the Michigan victory at Ohio State, not
only by the players, but by all of the Daily's "experts.
All previous winners who have not yet turned in their picks,
should be sure to have them at The Daily, 420 Maynard, by midnight
tonight so you will have an opportunity to win the grand prize, a $10

winners are eligible for this week's closing contest.
