Purdue Takes on Notre Dame;-
Seventh'Ranked USC at Iowa


The Big Ten is smarting. It un-
veiled the 1962 version of its foot-
ball colussi and in two hours of
football action last weekend the
armor of Conference supremacy
was soundly dented.
It's time to save face. This week
the Big Ten gets a chance to re-
deem itself against non-confer-
ence foe s. The fat satiation of
overconfidence has been ripped
aside-now it's time to play foot-
ball--Big Ten style.
Purdue vs. Notre Dame
One of the big games of the
day takes place in South Bend.
Purdue's Boilermakers, who suf-
fered a 7-7 tie with Washington
in their season opener two weeks
ago, take on the powerful Notre
Dame Irish in a do-or-die struggle.
The Huskies outran, outpassed,
outplayed, but thankfully for the
Boilermakers, failed to outscore
Purdue when they fumbled twice;

last week and upset a fine Okla-
homa squad 13-7 on national
Quarterback Daryle Lamonica is
back to lead the Irish and the
backfield boasts a full-fledged All-
America candidate in fullback
Mike Lind.
Still A Lot Left
The Irish suposedly lost most
of their fine linemen through
graduation last year, All-America
guard Nick Buoniconti, among
them. Last week, however, a solid
Irish defense stopped Oklahoma
four straight times on its attempt
to score from the three yard line
to preserve the victory, late in
the fourth quarter.
A team reborn. That's the Iowa
Hawkeyes, recovered from the
plague of injuries that ruined
their bid for top national ranking
last year. They take on seventh
ranked Southern- California today
at Iowa City.
Fancy Matt Szykowny used his
sure passing arm, his great back-
field, and Iowa's new 'floating t'
offense to batter Oregon State
28-8n Opening atehome this week
the likes, of 1960 All-America
halfback Larry Ferguson, fleet
pass catcher Sammie Harris, and
fullback Bill Perkins should give
USC fits.
Dugip Duke
The Trojans got their rating
by dumping pre-season power-
house Duke 14-7 in their opener
and coming back last week to
crush SMU 33-3.
Southern California's offense is
sparked by quarterback Bill Neu-
sen, who threw a 51 yd. scoring
pass to beat Duke, and boasts
a bevy of fine halfbacks in its
capable attack.
A somewhat lackluster Michigan
State eleven, its dreams of great-
ness shattered by Stanford last
week, may find someone to beat
Yin weak North Carolina.
The Tarheels were 'upset 7-6 in
their opener and humiliated last
week by Ohio State 41-7.
Gophers' Hour
The solid defense of Minnesota
and its offense, tailored to the
running of halfback Bill Muncy,
should get its first touchdown-
and then some, when it takes on
the Middies of Navy.
Minnesota couldn't score but
outplayed a good Missouri team
in settling for a 0-0 tie last week.
Joe Bellino is only a distant mem-
ory for Navy and the sailors are
having it tough. They beat Wil-
liam & Mary 20-13 last week, but
that 41-7 opening loss to Penn
State was an omen of mediocrity.
Oh yes, the conference still has
Ohio State, so things can't be that
bad. The Buckeye formula of an

impregnable defense and an un-
stoppable offense proved true toI
form in the North Carolina vic-
tory and now it's UCLA's turn to
step aside.
Not Quite Enough
The Bruins haven't played a,
game yet this fall, but they should
be quite a notch below the Buck-
eyes in team performance. UCLA
has a solid first team line, but a
definite lack of depth. The split-
back T has replaced the old single
wing but quarterback Ezell Single-
ton is still untried.
The UCLANS have fast backs
in Mike Haffner, who gained 703
yards in 1961 and 9.8 sprinter Ker-

"We won't have a bad crew."
This is Coach Gus Stager's opin-
ion of his 1962-63 swimming team.
Stager's guarded optimism is due
to light graduation losses and a
sophomore crop as good as the
one which came through in the
clutch last season.
Finish Fourth
Stager said that Mike Pepe, Ohio
State's venerable coach, has pre-
dicted that Michigan will finish
fourth in the Big Ten behind In-
diana, Ohio State and Minnesota.
With three mnonths to go before
the season starts, Stager is un-
sure about how quickly some of
his sophomores might develop. But
he is only cenceding at this point
that Indiana is the only team that
the Wolverines can't beat.
Indiana, Big Ten champions for
two straight years, should have a
team that is better than last sea-
son's squad which was recogniz-
ed as the greatest college team :n

much to expect of anybody.
It's Myers Again
In an inter-conference struggle
this week the Northwestern Wild-
cats with quarterback Tom Myers
take on Illinois, which lost its
opener to a fine Washington
team, 28-7.
Northwestern didn't play last
week but two weeks ago Myers
tied a Northwestern passing rec-
ord in completing 20 out of 24
aerials to spark a 37-20 win over
South Carolina.
Myers and fullback Bill Swingle
should prove too much for even
an improved Illini eleven as the
Wildcats continue to roll.
But a Memory
Wisconsin won big last week,
69-13 over New Mexico State,
Enough fast sophomore runners
were unveiled to keep Badger par-
tisans happy for some time. The
New Mexico State(s) have passed,
however, and now it's time to start

The Hoosiers are 2-0 with easy
victories over Kansas State and
Cincinnatti. Whether or not the
veteran Indiana backs can score as
easily against Big Ten competi-
tion and particularly Wisconsin is
still a question mark.

It's the fourth year-but don't
remind Duffy Daugherty.
You see, up in East Lansing
back-fence rumor has it that Fate
floats around the Michigan State
campusand every fourth year
throws a hex on the rosy dreams
of Spartan football glory. And
under Coach Duffy's regime the
facts are borne: 1954 was a 3-6
Spartan, stockcrash and 1958's
end was a humiliating 3-5-1.
And 1962-opening day - the
Spartans pounding the turf out
in Palo Alto facing Stanford. On
hand: Michigan State's line, the
East Lansing version of the "mon-
ster mash," beefy and solid, and
the flashy speed of Simes, Lin-
coln, and Lewis, about the top
backfield around. A lack of depth
maybe, but who needs too much
depth with a line that averages 225
and a backfield that can take rap-
id-fire advantage of any sort of
crevice in the forward wall.
When the Spartans took off
from Capital City airport in Lans-
ing Thursday, old nemesis Fate
must have been stowed away. State

It seems that pre-season ratings
don't affect luck in MSU circles.

rall, Walt Kowalczyk, Norm Mas-
ters, and Dan Currie headed the

ed in the Rose Bowl over UCLA.

years to show why frgstration can
become epidemic in Spartan foot-
ball circles. They've been rated at
the top of the national grid elite
since 1950 and have only once (in
1952) finished there. That was in

the middle of a 28-win streak un-
der Biggie Munn which climaxed
in 1953 when State entered the
Big Ten.
Cut at 28
Purdue upset the Spartans to
cut the string but State still made
it to Pasadena after tying with
Illinois for the conference crown.
Daugherty made his head coach-
ing debut in 1954 when the roof
fell in, but the State headmaster
shoved the Spartans back into the
grid limelight in 1955 when he was
named Coach of the Year. They
were defeated once in 1955 - by
Michigan, 14-7.
Purdue and Minnesota upset the
MSU powerhouse in 1956-just as
they did last year. And in 1957?
The Spartans lost one-to Purdue.

With the loss of Big Ten cham-
pions Fritz Kellerman and Don
Corriere, Wrestling Coach Cliff
Keen is counting on some exper-
ienced juniors and inexperienced
sophomores in the coming season.
"You just don't replace guys like
Kellerman and Corriere," Keen
said, "They were among the best
in the nation." Kellerman was a
three-time Big Ten champion who
won his last title in the 137-lb.
class. Corriere, captain of last sea-
son's team, captured the 167-lb.
Big Ten crown last spring,
Iowa on Top
In that Big Ten meet, Iowa won
the championship by five points
over the Wolverines. Michigan's
season record for dual meets was
7-2-1 in one of the most closely
contested races in years.
Michigan won its last Big Ten
when the meet was held at Ann
Arbor. Two years ago at East
Championship three years ago
Lansing, the Wolverines came in
second to the Spartans, and did
the same last season at Min-
Coach Keen's comment about
the strength of the other Big Ten
squads this season was: "They just
keep getting stronger and stronger
and stronger. But we're getting
stronger too." In the 38 years that
Keen has coached Michigan, his
teams have finished first, second,
or third in the Big Ten 31 times.

Matmen Inexperientced

We're going to have a green{
bunch," said Keen, "All the places I
are wide open. We,'re going to de-1
pend heavily on sophomores."
The VeteransI
Two wrestlers who definitely are
not green are seniors Jack^Barden
and Nick Armelagos. Barden was l
the Big Ten runner-up in the 177-
lb. class last season. He was beaL-
en by Indiana's Bruce Moroni, 3-2,
in the finals. Barden will probably
wrestle in the heavyweight division
this season.
Armelagos is the captain of this
season's team after sitting out last
season with an injury. "Nick's
knee and leg are fully recovered
now," said Keen, "I expect a great
year from him."
Returning Juniors
Keen has several juniors who
lettered as sophomores and saw┬░
quite a bit of action last season.
Among them are Carl Rhodes
(123-lb. class), Ralph Bahna (123-
lb. class), Jim Keen (147-lb. class),'
Wayne Miller (157-lb. class), Doug
Kuziak (157-lb. class), and Mike
Vuocolo (177-lb. class). Gary Wil-
cox, a mainstay in the 130-lb. and1
137-lb. classes as a sophomore,
has dropped out of school for a
Besides these returning letter-
men, Keen has about 10 sop'o-
mores who he regards as promin-
ent prospects to break into the
starting lineup at some time during
the season. They are: Dave Doze-
man (137 or 147-lb.), Lee Deitrick

(137 or 130-lb.), Bill Jones (130-
lb.), Tony Feiock (157 or 167-lb),
Bill Carr (147-lb.), Dave Post (157
or 167-lb.), Rick Bay (157 or 167-
lb.), Chiis Stowell (167 or 177-lb.),
Joe Arcure (177-lb.), and Bob
Spaly (heavyweight).

Stager's hopes for this season
are based on possibly having the
best freestyle and medley relay
teams in the Big Ten plus the
sophomores he plans to use on
these two teams.
Foremost among the newcomers
is Ed Bartsch. As a freshman, he
bettered the varsity records for the
100-yd. and 200-yd. backstroke
events and placed high in both
events at the indoor and outdoor
A A U national championships.
Backing up Bartsch is the official
varsity recordholder in the 200-
yd. race, senior Mike Reissing.
Soph Standout
Another soph standout is Lanny
Reppert. A butterfyer and individ-
ual medalist, Reppert is expected
to more than make up for the
loss of Fred Wolf, a former Big
Ten I-M champion. He will prob-
ably concentrate on the I-M be-
cause Stager has five juniors who
are proven butterfly specialists.
Stager's corps of butterflyers in-
cludes Jeff Moore, Enn Mannard,
Jeff Longstreth, Bob Shaefer, and
Carlos Canepa who is also a dis-
tance freestyler. Moore and Man-
nard, Stager said, developed to the
point last season where they were
among the best in the country.
Soph Sprinters
Reppert will also swim on Mich-
igan's freestyle relay team along
with sophomores Jim Riutta, John
Johnson, and Tom Burns. Coach
Stager believes that these four
should each do around 49 seconds
or better for their 100-yd sprints.
They will be helped in NCAA com-
petition by a new rule which al-
lows freestylers to do a flip turn
without first touching the end of
the pool with their hand. This
procedure was used successfully in
the Big Ten last season.
Bartsch, Reppert, whoever is the
best one of the sophomore free-
stylers, and two-time NCAA 100-
yd. breaststroke champion Dick
Nelson will make up the medley
relay team. Nelson commented
that, "We should have about the
best medley relay team in the
country. If we have a freestyle
sprinter who can do about 48 sec-
onds for the 100, we can beat In-
diana. At least it will be a good
Nelson Supporters
Supporting Nelson in the breast-
stroke races will be juniors Jon
Baker, a fourth place finisher at
the NCAA meet at 200 yards, and
Geza Bodolay, who was fifth in
the Big Ten at 100 yards.
Two changes in distance free-
style events have been made this
season. The former 440-yd. free-
style event is now 560 yards and
the 220-yd. event is now 200 yards.
Stager said he may have to
move one or two of the sprinters
up to the 200-yd. freestyle to take
care of the vacancy left by last
season's Captain Bill Darnton. In
