Not So Fast
"THE FACTS, THE FACTS, and nothing but the facts.'
Item: Nebraska 25, Michigan 13
Item: Army 9, Syracuse 2
Item: Army 40, Wake Forest 14
On the basis of the obvious facts, the Wolverines do not
seem to be in for a very happy football weekend. Army invades
the Michigan Stadium with two impressive victories and a na-
tional ranking. Last week's humiliating loss to Nebraska burst
even the most devout optimists' Wolverine pigskin bubbles.
Last year, if you will remember, Michigan proceeded to upset
its first two nationally ranked opponents, UCLA and Army, in de-
cisive fashion. The abortive contest against Michigan State last year
turned out as only one of. the 12 Sports Staff swamis anticipated in
their grid selections. My point is this: football is a very unpredictable
business. One had better not predict football games unless he is in
possession of ALL the facts.
Glittering Generalities ...
SOME LESS OBVIOUS FACTS are these. The Big Ten traditionally
has been strong: a very general rule of thumb for the novice is to
take the Big Ten team if two squads appear evenly matched. A more
specific generalization, which is, incidentally, unjustifiably success-
ful for some reason, is this: if two teams played the previous year,
choose last year's winner.
An even more potent weapon which some prognosticators subtly
incorporate into their grid selection systems is this: in the event of
too many conflicting facts, go with the home team.
Now I come to my point. Armed with the three given glitter-
ing generalities, one can begin to infer from the external facts.
Case In point: Army vs. Michigan.
Taking a few facts out of context to serve my own purposes I
will continue. Army and Michigan were even in first downs last week
with 13 apiece. The Wolverines rushed for a total of 170 yards
against Nebraska; whereas Army marched for a meager 162 yards.
Even. more revealing is passing yardage: Michigan had 83 aerial
yards to Army's 61.
Do not forget last year's score: Michigan 38, Army 6. Nor, should
one be totally ignorant of the previous two encounters between the
two schools. In 1955 the Wolverines had the upper hand by a 24 point
margin, 26-2. In 1956 the maize and blue entirely dominated play,
swamping the Cadets 48-14.
Another striking situation haunts the Cadets. It is well known
that sportswriters on both the East and West coasts are prone to
over-ranking. An example: last year Army succumbed to both Michi-
gan and Oklahoma, while easily dominating such Eastern stalwarts
as Boston University, Penn State, and William and Mary.
Colorful Cadets...
O MAKE MATTERS even more confused than they already are,
Army Coach Paul Dietzel is probably the most colorful coach in
college ball today. The instigator of the famous "Chinese Bandits"
at LSU has seemed unusually interested this year in such unmilitary
antics as the switching of hats by Cadets in the stands in order to
parallel the various Army units on the field.
Bill Veeck is also colorful, and his baseball teams have numbered
among some of the. world's worst. Michigan may be somewhat con-
servative, but the Wolverines, nonetheless, play football. Lonesome
ends may be colorful, but.. .
However, I prefer to stick with the FACTS: all the facts. In this
day and age of hard and cold statistics, I go along with the facts.
Michigan just couldn't be as bad as they looked last week. I like the
maize and blue for an upset this week:

Not only are linemen getting
bigger and faster, but the quarter-
backs seem to be growing too.
TCU's Sonny Gibbs at 6'7" and
Roman Gabriel, last season's All-
American from North Carolina
State, at 6'5" exemplify the em-
ergence of the big man as signal-
Fonde Speaks Out
Michigan's backfield c o a c h
Hank Fonde thinks that size is
usually important. "With the em-
phasis on the run-pass option to-
day and with the increased size
of the interior line, the little man
has trouble looking over the line
and being able to spot his re-
ceiver," he commented.
And with this preface, sopho-
more quarterback Bob Timberlake
can now be introduced. At 6'4"
and 205 lbs. Timberlake is the
biggest Wolverine quarterback in
recent years.
Another Stephens?
There are some observers who
classify him in the Sandy Steph-
ens category - fair passer, fine
runner. While the latter ability
is certainly true, there are still
other people including Fonde who
regard Timberlake as a much bet-
ter thrower than he is generally
given credit for.
Backing up Fonde's opinion that
Timberlake is a "sound" passer are
some interesting facts. In the an-
nual spring game he directed the
Whites to a 28-19 victory over the
Blues. He only completed three
passes-BUT he only attempted
six and two were good for touch-
Still Batting .500
In last week's loss to Nebraska
he again completed half of his
passes, two out of four. Now these
figures are not to say that Timber-
lake is another Johnny Unitas, but
too often people overlook this
facet because he is an unusually
fine runner. Especially after see-
ing him pick up 36 yards, in only
7 attempts against the Cornhusk-
ers giving him the best rushing
average on the team.
And this quality can not be
debated. Fonde believes Timber-
lake's scampering ability results
from his speed, moves and vision.
"Bob is a hard boy to bring down
because of his shiftiness and as
a result he breaks a lot of tackles,"
Fonde added.
Evidently the coaching staff
considers Timberlake more valu-
able at quarterback than at half-
back. "He worked out at halfback
for about a week early this fall,"
Fonde said, "but we thought he'd
be better at quarterback in the
long run."
With the loss of Doug Bickle,
place kicking specialist, Timber-
lake assumed new duties. Though
not quite as accurate at Bickle
on field goals, Timberlake can
more than match distance with
Bickle. In the last scrimmage be-

fore the Nebraska game, Timber-
lake put a kickoff into the seats
behind the end zone on the first
Fonde Regards
Fonde also regards Timberlake
highly as a defensive back. "He
is a fine athlete, and his height,
speed, and reflexes aresvaluable
in the defensive secondary," he
Timberlake showed his versatil-
ity in high school in Franklin,
Ohio, where he was a high school
All-America in football and played
basketball and golf.
When it came time for college
Purdue and Michigan ranked high
with him, and he decided to at-
tend school here because he liked
the coaching staff and the aca-
demic environment.

Angeles Dodgers will probably take
their time about announcing
whether manager Walter Alston
has been re-hired or retired.
But one thing already seems ap-
If Alston is back next season,
coach Leo Durocher won't be.
And vice versa.
Durocher, who wouldn't mind
managing the Dodgers himself, is
now openly criticizing the way Al-
ston has run the club.
The other night, after the Dodg-
ers were beaten 6-4 by San Fran-
cisco in the final game of the Na-
tional League playoffs, Durocher
turned up at a restaurant on the
Sunset Strip. Two men whe were

Alston attitudes..
Late in the final playoff game,
three Dodger players were listen-

in the dressing room. In the pres-
ence of a news photographer, one
of the players asked disgustedly:
"Now what the hell is Alston
doing walking (Ed) Bailey to get
at (Jim) Davenport?"
The other two players nodded,
indicating they thought it was a
good question.

Braves Fire
Pafol, Dykes;
Hire White
MILWAUKEE (4)--The Milwau-
kee Braves shook up their coach-
ing corps last night, releasing An-
dy Pafko and Jimmy Dykes and
hiring Jo Jo White.
The Braves, whose collapte on
the field this season was hardly
the fault of coaching, gave no rea-
son for the change. They said,
however, a fourth coach will be
hired soon.
White, a 53-year-old former
American League outfielder for
Detroit and Philadelphia, has been
a coach for the Kansas City Ath-
letics the past two years

Alpha Tau Omega placed men
second and fourth in the last
event, the low hurdles, to nose
out Sigma Chi and win the fra-
ternity outdoor track champion-
ship yesterday.
In a thrilling finish, Dave Mol-
hoek came in second and his broth-
er Dan finished fourth to give the
victory to ATO. Earlier in the meet
each brother had won an individ-
ual event, providing ATO with its
only first places.
Enthusiastic Crowd
The championship was witness-
ed by an enthusiastic crowd of
about 200 fans. The events began
at about 4:15 and ended just at
dusk. Earl Riskey, director of in-
tramural athletics, commented,
"This was one of the best meets
in years. The participation was
greater than any meet in a long
time. Why, we had 42 entries in
the 100-yard dash alone."
