'While Offense Gains 3074

Yards Rushing, Passing

Michigan's offense, led by ver-
satile senior quarterback Bob Tim-
berlake, proved to be one of the
nation's most powerful as it to-
taled 3,074 yards in nine games
for a 341.6 yards per game aver-
This total was sufficient to make
Michigan one of the nation's top
offensive teams.
The Wolverines produced most
of their yardage on the ground as
Michigan's offensive line, averag-
ing 217 pounds per man, opened
holes for the starting backfield of I
Timberlake, left half Jim Det-
wiler, right half Carl Ward, and
fullback Mel Anthony.
Altogether, the Wolverines gain-
ed 2,141 yards on the ground for
an average of 237.7 yards per
game. The balanced rushing at-
tack ranked first in the nation
throughout the season until the
final game. The leading rushers
were Anthony with 579 yards and
Timberlake with 574 yards.
lichigan's passing attack was
also good as the team gained 933
yards through the air. Timberlake
accounted for the bulk of this
yardage as he completed 63 passes
a. 127 attempts for 807 yards.

B E N FARABEE, 6'3", 205
pounds, from Holland. Playing at
left end, Farabee displayed his
talents as a tough hard-hitting
tackler in addition to being a
tough defensive end. As a sopho-
more, he played a total of 55 min-
utes, and in his second season he
played 46 minutes. But as a senior,
Farabee snagged eight tosses for
88 yards as an offensive end.

pounds, from Niles, Ohio. Despite
the fact that Kines saw no{action
in the 1963 season, he has turned
iiito a top notch offensive left
tackle this year, playing under his
former high school coach, Tony
Mason. Kines is one of the strong-
est men on the team. Kines was
one of the inexperienced linemen
used to build a strong front wall.

D A V E BUTLER, 6'1", 225
pounds, from Detroit. Although
he saw no action in his sophomore
year, and relatively little as a jun-
ior, Butler returned this season
and assumed the role at starting
left guard. He has good speed and
is a fine blocker. He is also con-
sidered to be the team clown. He
is a senior in education and plans
to be a missionary.

BRIAN PATCHEN, 5'11", 215
pounds, from Steubenville, Ohio.
Patchen became a first stringer
last year after taking over for
injured Tom Cecchini. In that
season, he played 269 minutes on
both offense and defense. This
year, as a senior, Patchen started
out on top and has done an ex-
cellent job as a blocker at offens-
ive center.

JOHN MARCUM, 6', 210 pounds,
from Monroe. Marcum, who has
won three letters in football,
played 219 minutes as a sopho-
more and 228 the next year. Play-
ing mainly offense this year, Mar-
cum did an outstanding job at
right guard. He was named to the
honorable mention list of All-
Americans by the Associated

TOM MACK, 6'3", 220 pounds,
from Bucyrus, Ohio. In his junior
year, at offensive right tackle, he
has been a stalwart of the line.
Mack was awarded the Meyer W.
Morton trophy for the most im-
proved player in spring practice
after switching from end. His
father, Ray, is a former major
league baseball player with the
Cleveland Indians.

pounds, from Dayton, Ohio. A
speedy offensive specialist at right
end, Henderson runs the 100-yard
dash in under 10 seconds. In his
junior year, he led the Wolverines
in scoring with 32 points. This sea-
son Henderson netted 27 passes
for a total of 393 yards, leading
the team in both categories. He
also scored three times.

Schedule of Post-Season Bowl Games

The Rose Bowl Isn't the only

bama taking on a last year's

pounds, from Franklin, Ohio.
Timberlake led the Wolverines toa
the Big Ten championship, rush-
ing for 574 yards in 144 tries, a
3.9 yards-per-carry average, and
completed 63 of 127 passes, good
for four touchdowns. The senior
quarterback finished first in the
Big Ten in scoring and third in
the nation as he tallied 80 points.'
Besides serving as field general
for Michigan, Timberlake also
handles the kickoff, extra point,
and field goal chores for the Wol-
verines. A UPI poll of Big Ten
coaches cited him as most valu-
able player in the conference this
season, and he has been named to
several All-America teams. A
"B" student off the field, Tim-
berlake has received one of the
two $500 Red Blaik scholarships
given across the country by the
National Football Foundation. In
high school the Wolverine quar-
terback got All-American honors.
L.A. Weather
Likely Warm
The normal temperature for the
beginning of January in Los An-
geles hovers right around the 66-
degree mark. Last winter when
Michigan's basketball team played
there, it basked in 80-degree
Although it probably won't be
needed, you should include a rain-
coat in your traveling apparel.
Some of Los Angeles' biggest
floods have come in early January.
But, then again, so have some of
its largest forest fires.

CARL WARD, 5'9", 180 pounds,
from Cincinnati, Ohio. Only a
sophomore, Ward chalked up 427
yards in 91 attempts for a 4.7
average which led the team in
that department. Ward, a high
school All-American, distinguish-
ed himself as a blocker during the
fall as he consistently knocked
would-be tacklers out of a play.
The hard-running right halfback
picked up 108 yards against Min-
nesota for his best performance
of the season. He runs the hun-
dred yard dash in :9.6 and will
probably go out for track this
spring. He used his dazzling speed
to frequently excite the crowd with
his long runs. Ward moved into a
starting berth well before the sea-
son began. He was outstanding in
spring drills and most obsrvers
expected him to move ahead of the
other backs. He is requently com-
pared to Dave Raimey. He was
named to the honorable mention
AP All-American team.

JIM DETWILER, 6'3", 212
pounds, from Toledo, Ohio. Det-
wiler rushed for 282 yards this
season at the left halfback slot.
He hit paydirt three times, tying
for third on the squad in scoring.
Snaring 10 tosses, Detwiler was
also second in pass receiving. The
sophomore halfback earned all-
state, and All-America honors at
Toledo DeVilbiss High. Detwiler's
fine performance was somewhat
unexpected because he was origin-
ally relegated to the third team.
But injuries to Jack Clancy and
John Rowser brought the Ohioan
into a starting role. In his very
first game against Air Force, he
was the Wolverines' leading
ground gainer. Detwiler has excel-
lent speed and can run the hun-
dred in :10.1. But he is never-
theless known for his hard run-
ning. He has the power of a full-
back and often carries men on his
back for extra yardage. He also
made the second Academic squad.

MEL ANTHONY, 6' 210 pounds,
from Cincinnati, Ohio. The pow-
erful senior fullback crashed for
579 yards in 132 tries, .high for
Michigan in rushing. He charged
over the goal line six times, plac-
ing fourth in theBig Ten in scor-
ing, and gaining the same position
in the final conference rushing
statistics. Against Iowa he scored
three touchdowns. Anthony was
drafted by the Cleveland Browns
of the NFL. He played 270- min-
utes in 1963 and scored five
touchdowns. Although he concen-
trated on offense this year, An-
thony is also a fine defensive
player as he proved in the North-
western game this year when he
subbed for Tom Cecchini. The big
fullback has good speed and is
equally at home when running
around end as he is blasting
through the middle. He completes
Michigan's all Ohio backfield. He
made the AP honorable mention
list of All-Americas.
