Graduation Losses Hit Defensive BackfieldI

' s: .
'4 ::

The Inside Corner
with Dave Andrews

/vl-- f >


Along with the new three-pla-
toon system to be initiated this
season will be a new look on pass
defense for the Michigan gridders.
Some of the biggest graduation
losses occurred in the defensive
secondary, where the Wolverines
lost Ken Tureaud, John Stamos,
Bennie McRae and Paul Raeder.
New Specialists
This season Head Coach Bump
Elliott has installed a new set of
pass defense specialists. Dave
Glinka, Michigan quarterback
who has seen little action on de-
fense,dwill assume both pffenslve
and defensive duties this year.
Bill Dodd, a junior fullback, and
Harvey Chapman, a junior half-
back, are both leading defensive
candidates, according to Elliott.
The fourth position on the start-
ing defensive secondary will be
occupied by either veteran half-
back Dave Raimey or sophomore
Dick Rindfuss.
"There's no doubt, at least at
the beginning of the season, that
we will lack experience in pass
defense," said Elliott. "We have
lost quite a few veteran defensive

Concerning Glinka in the start-
ing defensive backfield, Elliott
said, "We always knew that Glinka
was a competent defensive back
but we figured it was useless to
use him when we had experienced
corner men like Stamos and Tur-
Freshmen and sophomores
interested in becoming student
managers for Michigan's foot-
ball team are asked to contact
head manager Tony Klain any
afternoon after 3:30 at Ferry
Field or to call him . at
NO 3-9830.

Raimey is the only real veteran
in the defensive lineup. The speed-
ster from Dayton shared the start-
ing role as deep man with McRae
for the past two seasons. McRae
is now in the Chicago Bear defen-
sive backfield.
Adding some experience will be
both Ed Hood and Jack Strobel.
Both were in Michigan's second
team defensive secondary last
No Basic Changes
As far as the actual structure of
the Michigan pass defense, Elliott
plans no basic changes. "We will
use two types of pass defense
again - the box type defense and
the three-deep type."
The box type pass defense con-
sists of two corner men and two
safety men while the three-deep
system, sometimes known as the
umbrella defense, has three men
deep while in the box type there
were two. Both the box and the
three-deep systems are zone de-
fenses and the defensive back is
assigned to a particular area.
When asked if the hard rushing
line is the BEST pass defense, El-
liott replied, "It sure helps."


Neither Chapman
seen much action in;
backfield. Chapman
year at halfback,
times for 97 yds. and;

or Dodd has
the defensive
lettered last
carrying 18
a touchdown.

Dodd failed to earn a letter last
Rindfuss, the lone sophomore
of this group, has displayed offen-
sive speed in pre-season scrim-
mages. Rindfuss, of Niles, Ohio,
stands 6'1" and weighs 188.

the Crucial Step
MUCH WILL be made this fall of the great college football teams
scattered about this fine land of ours. The rumblings which
started Saturday won't cease until the final check is picked up after
the last senior bowl game some time into next baseball season. The
Associated Press and United Press International have their weekly
prestige polls. Every magazine in the land publishes forecasts. And
every coach in the country who's not overloaded with all-Americans
contends that this is a "rebuilding" year - just to keep the alumni
happy and to save his job for another season.
It's a curious addition to football jargon, this "rebuilding"
year. Everything is fine and dandy until someone uses rotten
cement, until a Colorado or an Auburn comes along. Even then,
despite rabid head shaking and a bit of finger slapping, the
belief is that the college game is clean. But I wonder ... I wonder
if it really is as clean as all that? You hear some shady stories.
To mass indict the whole sport like that, however, would be a
crime itself. Perhaps there should be distinctions made. But then
again, how about the rotten apple spoiling the barrel? How many
does it take?
Different Today ...
THE WORD is that football teams are made in the spring. The
coach that said that, however, referred to the gridiron. Today it
means recruitment, rebuilding, replacing, and making a good or a
bad team into a better one.
I don't believe anyone could tell you how the whole cycle got
started. The important thing is that it did. If you could go through
the files of any athletic department in the country you could probably
find the name of any high school kid who ever scored a touchdown,
blocked a kick or weighs over 200 lbs. The colleges scout the preps like
the pros scout the colleges. And the sad thing about it is, either you're
in it or you're out-regardless of whether or not you play by the rules.
All of this merely brings us to the crux of the problem-the
rules or lack of them as the case may be.
Some conferences have attempted to stiffen the rules. The
Big Ten is one. The controversial "need" factor was one such
attempt. Last year's enactment of "predictable" scholarship mini-
mums is another such experiment.
Unfortunately the "need factor" in athletic scholarship distri-
bution didn't work, and despite some sincere efforts on the part of
a few men it was thrown out. Why? Simply. because other schools,
non-Big Ten members without the "need factor" limitation on schol-
arships, were pirating Big Ten football material.
Powerful Police...
WHAT'S THE answer? It seems to me that the solution is staring
us right in the face - a powerful and independent NCAA estab-
lished by common consent with the means to enforce heavy penalties
on violators. So far the majority of the athletic directors and faculty
representatives who act as delegates to NCAA meetings and conven-
tions have been reluctant to delegate enough authority to allow the
NCAA to do much. Independence, I guess, is an American virtue. We'll
police ourselves is the argument. We don't want a dictator to run our
athletic programs.
But let's face it. The self-policing policy isn't working very well.
Standards are different from one Conference to the next, some strict,
some lenient. The same is true of individual schools. Sure, the NCAA
traps a violator every so often, but only after someone has filed a
complaint. And complaints are bad for relations.
The situation is critical, if the colleges want to retain some
semblance of amateurism in their sports. The answer has to be
with the NCAA, or for that matter a separate policing organiza-
tion if it proved bureaucratically more feasible. To be effective
such an organization would have to possess the KO punch in its
powers - the schedule cancellation.
This hits where it hurts, in the wallet. Where would the Michigan
athletic department be, for example, without football revenue? Others
are in the same boat. Football runs the program.
That's the only way left to clean up today's mess, a national
standard. Maybe someday someone will realize it. The sooner it hap-
pens, the better off everyone will be.
