Nice Guys Don't
Always Finish Last
After six years of hard work as head coach, Bump Elliott
long last has hit the jack pot. It's very tempting to say that
couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

at
it

Two years ago Bump was at the lowest point in his distinguished'
football career with a last place Big Ten team that had an overall
2-7 record. The 1962 squad was shut out four times, outscored 214-70,
and someone recently wrote that the team was even more inept
than the scores would indicate.
Now everything is literally coming up Roses. With only a one-
point loss to Purdue to mar a perfect season and a berth in the
Rose Bowl on New Year's Day, Bump is the hero of victory-straved
alumni, students and Michigan fans everywhere.
Two years ago Bump wasn't a hero. Two years ago he was a
lousy recruiter, had an unimaginative offense, a leaky defense and
besides, Bump was just too nice a guy somehow to win ball games.
This is quite a difference in attitude. I doubt if Bump has
changed so radically. It must be that this is just the difference
between the image of a winning and a losing football coach. Fans
will always make up their own myth about a football team and
its coach. It will be complementary to the coach if his team is
winning and derogatory if his team is losing.,
But through winning and losing.
years, the one myth about Bump.
Elliott that persists, probably be- f
cause it's true, is that he is al
nice guy. Before the season start-

scended upon Ann Arbor to gather.
material for a pre-season report
on the Wolverine football team.. . .'
Bump lectured and answered ques-
tions for almost an hour and a
half. When he was through, one . -. - .
writer quipped, "I don't think I'm
going to write anything about
Michigan. Bump is such a nice
guy I wouldn't want to take a
chance on misquoting him."
You can't help being impressed b ............................
by this man whether he is in- 4
formally answering question to r
two or three reporters or whether f
he is giving a talk to a larger BM LIT
group. For most people, seeing BUMP ELLIOTT
Bump pace along the side lines or being interviewed on television,
his clean-cut good looks prejudge him favorably. When he talks he
is articulate despite having to mouth the subtle evasions of foot-
ball coaches under high pressure.
This is the nice guy image. It is directly opposed to the image
of the old-style football coach, yelling and swearing at players dur-
ing the game and using every sly device in the book in an inhuman
frenzy to win.
Bump has an overwhelming desire to win. It couldn't have been
otherwise in order to create this season's championship tean. But
winning should be done according to the rules. Before the season
started, Bump stated that he would abide by the spirit of the new
substitution rules as well as the letter of the rules. While other
coaches took intentional delay of game penalties to switch platoons,
Bump refused to evade the intent of the substitution rule in this way.
The result was that Michigan probably had its offensive team
playing defense and its defensive team playing offense more often
than most other teams. But the Michigan players were coached
to go both ways and it never was very long before the right group
of specialists was able to enter the game without violating the spirit
of the rules.
A winning football team is good to have 4round and it's also
good for Bump personally. Unless Michigan football fortunes take
an unforeseen and disasterous turn for the worse in the next few
seasons, Bump can be included in the select and highly qualified
group of candidates for the job of Athletic Director when H. 0.
(Fritz) Crisler retires.
Nice guys don't always finish last. Sometimes they win Big
Ten football championships.

nant, Mississippi to be the top

Michigan in basketball.

Michigan's hockey sextet open-
ed its 1964-65 season on a low
note with a 7-4 loss to Chatham,
Ontario's, Junior B team Friday
night, and a 5-5 tie with West-
ern Ontario University last Sat-
urday.
In Saturday's contest, the Wol-
verines led Western Ontario 5-3

until late in the third period, but
two breakaway goals left Mich-
igan's icers with a disappointing
tie. Coach Al Renfrew said at
practice yesterday, however, that
"we played much better Satur-
day night. Our skating in par-
ticular was improved."
Friday night saw the Wolver-
ines lose to a Chatham team
which had played 15 games al-

ready and is leading its league.
With several sophomores, includ-
ing goalie Greg Page, seeing their
first intercollegiate action, the
Wolverine puckmen seemed vic-
tims of "first game jitters" ac-
cording to Renfrew.
Michigan's c a p t a i n, Wilfred
Martin, tallied twice Friday in the
losing effort to lead Michigan's
scoring and repeated his perfor-
mance Saturday night.
Saturday night the icers came
back to lead Western Ontario
throughout mostoftthe contest.
Alex Hood tallied with just over
five minutes gone in the first
period, but Western Ontario
matched the effort one minute
later. Sophomore Mike Martilla,
injured later with a shoulder sep-
aration, put Michigan ahead for
the second time halfway through
the stanza.
Martin tallied with an assist
from Hood and MacDonald early
in the second period, but seven
minutes later it was tied up 3-3.
Bob Ferguson got his first score
of the season before the period
ended and Martin added a sec-
ond marker with 5:20 gone in the
third frame. Western Ontario
spoiled Michigan's victory hopes
with the two late breakaway goals.

Michigan had several similar
chances to score, but could not
capitalize on them. Speedy Mel
Wakabayashi had a couple of
breakaways, but "lost control of
the puck" according to Renfrew.
Especially pleasing was Martin's
play, as he started to regain the
pace which made him Michigan's
second-leading goal scorer last
year.
