AP Grid Poll
By The Associated Press
Ohio State's awesome show of
grinding power in the season
opener sent the Big Ten champion
ahead of Alabama today into the
No. one spot in the weekly A?
college football poll.
Woody Hayes' Buckeyes, un-
beaten but tied once last year,
started the new campaign by
crushing North Carolina, 41-7, last
Saturday at Columbus.
Other Big Ten teams in the top
30 were Northwestern (16), Iowa
(18), Michigan State (19), Pur-
due (20) and Minnesota (26).
Meanwhile, Nebraska climbed
back into national prominence for
the first time in years on the
strength of its 25-13 conquest of
Michigan last Saturday. Pollsters
ranked the Cornhuskers 11th this

Big Ten Prestige

ministered to him by half a dozen:
Cornhusker defenders in the sec-1
and half. That maneuver cost9
Nebraska 15 yds. for piling on,
but it was small consolation to1
the Wolverines, as it disengaged1
Raimey for the remainder of the
However, all was not sweetness
and light in the case of senior'
tackle John Houtman. In the
midst of what Elliott called "his
best game yet," Houtman, playing
on offense, abruptly found him-
self underneath much of the
Husker line, and had to be helped
off the field with a badly hurt
"I'm very worried about him,"
quoth Elliott, "and it seems more
than likely that he'll be out of
action this Saturday against Army,
if not longer."
The only other casualty to re-
port was fullback Roger Schmitt's
bad back (caused by a collision
with a Nebraska knee), but, as of
now, this isn't causing the head
coach too much concern.
Big Shakeup
At least Houtman, and very
probably a few other Wolverine
starters, will be relegated to the
status of former starters for the
upcoming tiff with the Black
Knights of the Hudson. Elliott an-
nounced his intention to shake up
the lineup yesterday, although he
said that he and his assistants
hadn't decided upon the new
starters as yet. But he did prom-
ise to reveal them later in the
week, possibly Wednesday or
"We'll find out who the fight-
ers are this week," he declared,
with something more than dis-
interest in his voice. "Even though
the players on our first, second,

and third squads will be juggled,
the platoon system will still be
in effect.
"Because of our poor play in the
beginning of the Nebraska game,
we never could effectively alter-
nate teams. When we got behind,
we had to leave the first-stringers
in there, and didn't get a chance
to see what the third team looked
like in a game.
"Of course, many of the younger
players had the pre-game jitters,
but this doesn't nearly account for
the lack of sharpness on the field."
Not that Bad
And what about the passing
game? "The passing of our
quarterbacks wasn't really as bad
as the statistics chow," Elliott

noted. "It's just that I've never
seen so many good passes dropped
in my life.
"Every time one of our passes
was about to be received, the end
was hit hard enough to cause him
to lose control of the ball. All we
can do is keep throwing and hope
that they'll be able to hold on."
Asked about his frequent switch-
ing of quarterbacks, Elliott re-
plied, "Every time we sent one of
our four quarterbacks in, it was
with a specific purpose in mind.
We simply wanted to take ad-
vantage of the better talents of
each man," Unfortunately, those
combined talents didn't quite turn
the trick.
And although one of the signal-

callers, soph Bob Timberlake, ran
very much like a fullback, Elliott
has no plans to play him anywhere
but quarterback.
Practice Notes
Elliott's charges went through
light drills yesterday and spent
time looking over what Army's
offense will likely throw against
them Saturday.
Coach Paul Dietzel, new this
year after coming from LSU, will
employ his familiar three platoon
system to try to avenge last year's
38-8 defeat.
That was the Wolverines' third
lopsided win over nonsectional foes
last year.

Big Ten football prestige suffer-
ed a stiff blow to the chin last
weekend as some of the Midwest's
finest staggered under the on-
slaught of interconference under-
Case number one: Michigan
State-rose-smelling, speedy, and
Saimes-crumpled in the season
opener out in Palo Alto, 16-13, un-
der Stanford's Indian attack.
And the Spartans gave it the
full Big Ten effort. For instance:
Coach Duffy Daugherty did the
play-calling (shuffling quarter-
backs Pete Smith and Charley
Migyanka), the State eleven scor-
ed first and threatened three oth-'
er times, and Duffy explained the
whole upset as a result of MSU's
being "overrated."
Bungle, Stumble
The Green and White also did
a fair share of bungling. Exam-'
ples: Halfback Dewey Lincoln
broke away with a Stanford kick-
off and was on his way for a six-
pointer when the Spartan ace en-
tangled an official, got slowed
down, and was nabbed at midfield;
end Ernie Clark juggled a Smith1
pass in the end zone and Indian
Gary Craig picked it off; and the
Spartans missed two field goals,
one from the 12 and the other
from the 15.
Big Ten hurt case two: Michi-
gan, not expected to see the top of
the Big Ten but still rated to take
command of Nebraska in the open-
er Saturday, didn't.
The Blues' 25-13 defeat was ac-
counted to a flashy exhibition of
errors-which will have to be ton-
ed down before the Wolverines
hatch any more hopes for the '62
season. Purdue, Michigan State,
Ohio State, etc., are upcoming.
Meekly, Sickly
Of course, the Wolverines hadn't
counted on an "injured" Corn-
husker named Bill Thornton who
came off the. bench to pace the
Nebraska attack. Thornton dash-
ed and wriggled for two TD's and
led the Cornhusker blocking.
And more conference scars up
in Minneapolis: Minnesota's de-
fense stifled Johnny Roland and
his Missouri grid company, but
the Gopher offensive machine
couldn't keep the pace. Result:
naught. Missou battled Minnesota
to a 0-0 deadlock, but only on the
effort of two Tiger goal-line stands
on its tow and one yard stripes.
Roland, who had scored three'
touchdowns against California the'
weekend before, couldn't get Mis-
souri inside the Minnesota 27. The
Tigers missed on a field goal at-
tempt from the 38 early in the
The Gophers were in their first

test this year without Sandy
Stephens. Duane Blaska handled
the signal-calling chores and
sparked the Minnesota drive that
ended when Blaska was stopped
short at the Missouri one on
fourth down.
It appears as if the Gophers will
not be entirely lacking air power
this year. They completed eight
for 17 via the air lanes for 106
yards Saturday.
And again on the West Coast:
Washington stymied Big Ten op-
ponents .for the second week in a
row with a 28-7 win over Illinois.
Last week the Westerners stale-
mated Purdue, 7-7.
A Tisket, a Tasket
The Illini, strictly on an under-
dog basis again this fall (they were
0-9 a year ago), were scored upon
in every quarter as Washington
picked up its third straight win
over the Orange and Blue since
they first played in 1950.
But it wasn't all subglorious in-
famy on the Big Ten scene Satur-
day. Ohio State rolled, 41-7, over
North Carolina, Iowa downed Ore-
gon State, 28-8, and Indiana sailed
past Cincinnati, 26-6.
And best of all: Wisconsin 69,
New Mexico State 13.

Giants Whip
LA Dodgers
On Homers
Mays walloped two homers and
Jimmy Davenport and Orlando
Cepeda hit one each yesterday in
a San Francisco power display
that whipped Los Angeles, 8-0, in
the opening battle of their playoff
for the National League pennant.
The homer barrage backed bril-
liant pitching by 35-year-old
southpaw Billy Pierce, who
blanked the hapless Dodgers on
three hits to give the surging
Giants the lead in the best of
three-game series. It was the
Dodgers' third straight shutout
loss and extended their string of
scoreless innings to 30.
Mays, whose homer against
Houston Sunday forced this play-
off, enjoyed a perfect day at bat
this sunny afternoon and won the
major league home run crown in
the process.
He sent the Giants off winging
with a two-run smash in the first
inning off Sandy Koufax. When
he slugged his second, off Larry
Sherry in the sixth, Willie took the
1962 title with 49 since this play-
off counts in season statistics.
Mays singled in the third and
drew a walk in the eighth when
he also stole a base to cap his
day. Harmon Killebrew of Minne-
sota, the American League leader,
finished his season's work with
48 homers. %
Now the series moves to Los An-
geles where the Giants could cap-
ture the flag with another triumph
in the game starting today.

"Passing is good if it works. If it
doesn't. then you're in trouble.
But we know we can pass, for
passes were key plays in several
of our scoring drives. And we
know our halfbacks can run when
we want to turn 'em loose. We'll
wait for the right spots."

Here on the sports staff we made a rule that no members of
the Daily staffs could enter the Grid Picks contest. Now this rule
aroused the anger of some business staff and editorial staff, especially
the city editor, who wanted to try their amateur hand along with
the rest of the campus. We did, however, neglect to make any rule
about relatives of Daily staff members, feeling that they have few
friends in Ann Arbor, let alone relatives.
So when cute little Donna Andrews, wife of Associate SOlorts
Editor Dave Andrews, brought her picks in, we let her enter because
first of all we didn't have a rule against it, and secondly (blush) we
didn't think she would do very well, having picked such stupid teams
as Nebraska. So naturally when the final count was in she had picked
15 right and won the two tickets by being the only one of five with
that score to have picked Nebraska. At last word she was going to
take baby daughter Kathy to the show and leave daddy Dave at
home because he picked only 12 iight out of 20.
But this week is a new contest and we have 20 more tough
games for you to pick. The winner this week will not only get
two tickets to the Michigan Theatre, but also a free subscription to
The Football News, a national weekly football newspaper.
So pick up an entry blank at the Michigan Daily building, or
make up your own list, and mail or bring your winners in person to
