MSU Keeps Practice Secret

Platoons Pay Dividends for Wolverines

secret weapon this week in prep-
aration for Saturday's traditional
football game with arch-rival
Coach Duffy Daugherty closed
the practice field to all but team
"We're shutting out the world,"
said Daugherty. "We want to be
alone in our preparations."
Daugherty termed the Michigan
game the most important one on
the fall schedule. He said it also
could be the most important one
since he became head coach.
The Spartans defeated North
Carolina, 38-6, last weekend.

IOWA CITY-The Iowa Hawkeyes
started preparations yesterday for
Saturday's Big Ten football clash
at Indiana, with the availability
of quarterback Matt Szykowny still
in doubt.
Szykowny suffered a torn knee
ligament in Saturday's game with
Southern California. Coach Jerry
Burns said he hoped the quarter-
back will be out only a few days,
but said he is readying sopho-
more quarterbacks Bob Wallace
and Fred Riddle just in case.
In addition to Szykowny, four
other Hawkeyes were out with in-
juries yesterday. Fullback Bill
Perkins and halfback Monty Rog-
ers suffered bruised knees in Sat-
urday's game, halfback Pa u 1
Krause has a bruised back and
tackle George Latta suffered a
sprained ankle. Burns said he
hopes all four will be ready for
Saturday's game.
LAFAYETTE-The Purdue Boil-
ermakers worked out in sweat
clothes yesterday and began plan-
ning defenses for Saturday's home
opener against a versatile Miami
(Ohio) squad which is unbeaten.
The only major injury reported
after Purdue's 24-6 win over No-
tre Damie last Saturday was a se-
vere knee bruise suffered by Don
Brooks, starting left end. Sopho-
more Clarence Foster took over his
spot for yesterday's workout.
Dickens yesterday set a practice
week concentrated on fundamen-
tals for his Indiana football squad,
which was whipped 30-6 by Wis-
consin Saturd'ay.
"We made too many critical er-
rors of a fundamental nature, not-
ably in covering kicks," Dickens
said. The coach said the Hoosiers
will have to do a better job against
Iowa hereSaturday "or we'll have
similar results."


{ }

Michigan revealed a new look
in its football team last Saturday
as it rolled over the Army Cadets,
The projected three - platoon
system became a reality then.
Coach Bump Elliott did not use
the platoons in the Nebraska loss
but decided that the week's extra
practice had helped his platoons
jell into working units. Satur-
day's game proved he was right.
The biggest surprise of the
game was the third unit, the
Raiders, a name first used by
Elliott four years ago when last
he went with three platoons.
Bright Yellow Badges
Assistant Coach Bob Hollway
came up with the idea of sewing
a bright yellow badge on the jer-
seys of the members of the Raid-
ers (the Army third platoon, the
Chinese Bandits, is identified by
a red Bandit patch which is sewn
onto each of its members' jerseys).
The Raiders' insignium is a
Wolverine. Hollway thought that
the patch would "help to perk the
boys up." It sure did.
Like the Bandits, the Raiders
are primarily a defensive unit.
However, they usurped a little of
the other two platoons' glory Sat-
urday by being on the field when
the Wolverines notched their sec-
ond touchdown.
The improvement of Saturday's
team over the team that fell to



ON REBOUND-Both coaches called this third-quarter pass inter-
ception the key play in the Wolverines' 17-7 win over the Cadets.

Nebraskathe weekend before was
more than minor. The vaunted
Black Knight attack was stopped
cold as it gained only 36 yds. in
the air and added just 92 more
on the ground.
"I couldn't even begin to say
how improved we were," Elliott
said. "I do know we grew up
mentally in this game. We're not
kids anymore."'
The quarterbacking position still
remained undecided in the Wol-
verine camp as all four again
had the chance to display their
talents against Army,
Chandler Hits
Bob Chandler was in for only
one play but he completed a pass
to Jim Conley for 10 yds. Dave
Glinka ran the No. One unit and
completed three out of five for 18
yds. Bob Timberlake, who quar-
terbacks the Raiders when they
have the ball on offense, and
Frosty Evashevski alternate- at
that slot on the second unit.
Evashevski completed one of three
and Timberlake was one for one.
The Wolverines moved the ball
best on the ground. They spiked
up the turf for a total of 276
yds. Dave Raimey (who else?) led
the earth-eaters with 89 yds. and
anaverage of 4.2 yds. per carry.
Also revealed in the game was
a new "toe" -- Timberlake. He's
now three for three in the point-
after-touchdown game and also
has a field goal to his credit.
Practice Notes
Everything is pointing to THE
game next Saturday against Mich-
igan State..
Yesterday the players watched
films of the Spartan's 38-6 romp
over the North Carolina Tar Heels.
They also listened to the scouting
The only changes Elliott envi-
sions are the inclusion of sopho-
more fullback Mel Anthony, who
saw some action against Army,
and senior halfbackEd Hood in
the attack next Saturday. Both
were- out with injuries.
The squad then retired to the
practice field where they worked
out lightly in the steady drizzle.

LINCOLN, Neb.(P)-"The train-
ers now have about the same size
squad as we have on the field,"
Nebraska football Coach Bob De-
vaney quipped yesterday.
Devaney was bemoaning his
heavy injury list which includes
not- only Bill (Thunder) Thorn-
ton, top Husker fullback who has
a sprained ankle, but also guard
Gary Toogood, halfbacks Dave
Theisen and Dennis Steuwe and
co-captain D w a i n Carlson, a

Nebraska handed the Wolver-
ines their opening-game defeat,
25-13, and is beginning to answer
the non-believers. The Huskers'
win over Iowa State Saturday
gave them a 3-0 season record.

To i Ten
CHICAGO JP)-The Big Ten,
with a mediocre 10-5-2 record
against non-conference foes so far
this season, will wind up with two
or three teams among football's
top ten, Purdue Coach Jack Mol-
lenkopf predicted yesterday.
"And in the Rose Bowl, the Big
Ten representative will give a good
account of itself," added Mollen-
kopf, speaking at Chicago's Ameri-
can Quarterback Club.
OSU Dumped
Four Big Ten defeats and one
tie have been against teams of
the West Coast Big Six. Purdue
and Washington played a 7-7 tie.
Washington defeated I11inois,
Stanford downed Michigan State,
and last week USC trimmed Iowa
and UCLA upset the nation's No.
one-ranked team, Ohio State.
"Coach Woody Hayes took his
Ohio State boys out to the Coast
as early as Wednesday last week,"
Mollenkopf said. "I hear they went
to Disneyland on Thursday and
toured Hollywood on Friday. On
Saturday they couldn't get the job
done against UCLA.
II Duce
"They tell me that Woody was
plenty mad after the game and
looked just like Mussolini. Ohio
State will bounce back this week.
I know what poor Pete (Pete El-
liott of Illinois) is in for.
"We are fortunate to come out
with a tie at Washington, which
has as much speed as you'll find
in the country.
"But Saturday after Saturday,
you see the finest football played
in the Big Ten and when the sea-
son is all over the conference will
have two or three teams in the top
