Although Coach Cliff Keen's
conference champs have suffered
graduation losses at three posi-
tions, he will have six of eight
starters returning, and two of
these are Big Ten champions.
Keen, in his fortieth season as
Michigan coach, sends his defend-
ing Big Ten champs against Penn
State in the season opener on
Foremost among the losses suf-
fered through graduation is that
of Ralph Bahna, who was crown-
ed Big Ten champion last year
in the 123 pound class.
Along with Bahna, graduation
claimed senior captain Wayne Mil-
ler who held down the 157 pound
spot for the Wolverines. Miller
placed fourth in his class at the
conference meet last spring.
Also missing from the Michigan
lineup this year will be Gary

Big Ten champion in the 137

opener and was sidelined for the
entire season, will also be back in
action. As a sophomore two years
ago Dozeman won the 137 pound
consolation title, and was expect-
ed to be one of the top contend-
ers for the conference champion-
ship last season.
"Dave hasn't recovered complete-
ly," says Keen, "and it will be
a while before he's able to realize
his old form. But he's looking
stronger every day."
With the return of veterans like
these, and with a host of promis-
ing sophomores, Keen's matmen
will once again be in the thick
of the conference title race.
"But the Big Ten gets tougher
every year," says Keen. "We won't
have any 'breathers.' I think part
of it's due to the fact wrestling has
grown so much in recent years."
According to Keen, Michigan
State, Iowa, and Northwestern will
be especially tough.
"But there are no weak teams,"
Keen added. "Our opener against
Penn State will also be tough."
The lineup that the Wolverines
will send up against the veteran
Penn State team has yet to be de- I
