The Inside Corner

Daug ertyReadies Rugged Spartans

1 7e
The 'Manistique Missile'
QU DON'T FIND many people in these here parts from Michigan's
Upper Peninsula. It's pretty well hidden behind the $3.75 per car
toll rates of the prize Mackinac Straits Bridge.
Strange rumors of snow and ice, dog teams and Santa Claus drift
down into the warmer confines of the Lower Peninsula. Only the
masses of deer hunters-the crazy variety who have been known to
blast away at anything from road signs to cows-and tourists-God
bless their money-dare to venture into the wilds.
But un-be-known to many people, football is played up there.
Good football, though primarily of the high school variety. And that's
why it comes as no surprise to see on the Michigan State University
football roster the name, Ronald R. Rubick.
His hometown is listed as Manistique, a dingy little hamlet
on the shores of Lake Michigan. His following encompasses the
whole region, for Rubick, through one short football season at
Manistique High, has become a legend.
It's not that the Peninsula has never produced any good football
players. U.P. boys have been running the college gridirons for quite
some time. Dave Manders of Kingsford showed Michigan a few things
about how center was played last fall while at Michigan State. Ron
Steiner of Iron Mountain burned up the turf at Wisconsin. And neith-
er Billy Wells, who played at Michigan State, nor Mike Shatusky, who
quite a few Michigan fans will remember as scoring the two touch-
downs that beat Iowa's first Rose Bowl team, will be easily forgotten.
Then there was George Gipp of Calumet, who made his name at
Notre Dame and Knute Rockne immortalized when he cried "Win one
for the Gipper" in his famous tear-splattered halftime speech years
ago. The names of famous gridiron heroes, they keep coming back.
Something Different...
BUT RUBICK is a different story. They called him the "Manistique
The Peninsula fans remember him as the halfback who almost
single-handedly led Manistique to its best football season in history. In
eight games he scored 184 points, then a Michigan High School sea-
son record. He scored from all over the field under any conditions
and just the thought of him made coaches and football teams alike
He isn't big this Rubick fellow. His 179 lbs. are carried nicely on
a 51" frame. But my, can he run. Twenty-nine touchdowns that year
an dmore than half of them from beyond the 50. He averaged more
than 200 yds. a game rushing-and that doesn't include punt or kick-
off returns.
At Michigan State, until this fall, he was relatively undis-
tinguished. He didn't play much last fall, 74 minutes, winning his
letter primarily as a defensive back. But there were signs-un-
mistakable signs.
Against Michigan in Michigan State's 28-0 rout, he picked off an
errant Wolverine aerial and rambled 19 yds. He returned a Michi-
gan punt 16. On the season he carried the ball 18 times from scrim-
mage for 98 yds. and a 5.4 average, returned two punts for 39 yds.,
that interception for 19 and a kickoff for 19..
He performed well, according to reports from East Lansing, but
through it all Coach Duffy Daugherty kept insisting that Lewis was
his number one gun.
MSU's Best Second Stringer...
TWO GAMES HAVE PASSED this fall for the Spartans, a 16-13 up-
set loss to Stanford and last week's 38-6 crusher'over North Caro-
lina. Duffy still says that Lewis is his number one boy, but the words
aren't so emphatic anymore.
Hre' what Rubick has done. He leads the Spartans in. rushing,
pickin up 267 yds. in 28 trips for a 9.4 average. He leads the Spar-
tans in punt returns with 76 yds. In three tries, one a 62 yd. jaunt at
Stanford. He leads the Spartans in scoring, charging over for three
TD's against North Carolina. And he's exactly 64 per cent better
passing than his nearest rival, quarterback Pete Smith. Rubick has
thriwn twice and hit them both for 53 yds. Smith is 7-19 with two
interceptions for a gain of 83.
To boot, Rubick now possesses the Michigan State single game
rushing record of 207 yds., set last Saturday afternoon against
North Carolina. The old record which had stood p since 1950
through 12 years of great Spartan backs was held by Sonny Gran-
delius-late of Colorado defame.
For a second string back, who's not particularly fast, not par-
ticularly big, but shifty as a gambler's eyes that's a pretty fair country
start. It's that kind of second string-with touchdowns in its blood-
that makes Michigan Coach Bump Elliott's run cold.
And it sort of makes ole Duffy, who's been complaining about the
lack of depth, somewhat of a liar.

article was written especially for
The Michigan Daily by Dave Harfst,

Sports Editor Michigan State News
Daugherty and the Michigan State
football team have shut them-
selves off from the rest of the
world this week, as they prepare
for Saturday's encounter with
Daugherty let it be known that
the practice sessions would be in
complete privacy-even without
newsmen. This is the first time in
the school's history that even the
press has been shutout of grid-
iron practice.
His explanation for the happen-
ings was that it gives the Spartan
football players time for complete
concentration. Daugherty feels
that the Spartans were not as

that made them champs in early

ted two third period goals last

Parker MacDonald scored the
winning goal mid-way in the third
period with a tip-in of Doug Bark-
ley's long shot.
In other league action, the Bos-
ton Bruins displayed a new goal-
tender and shut out the Montreal
Canadiens 5-0.

sharp as they should have been
in Saturday's conquest of North
Carolina and must be "up" for1
this week's battle.
The affable MSU coach, who
was just named by Look magazine
as "football's most popular coach,"
told football writers earlier in the
"We are going to have a dog
fight on our hands Saturday and
we will have to play much better
than we did against North Caro-
lina if we are to beat Michigan."
Despite t h e Spartans win,
Daugherty and his aides moved
center Dave Behrman back up to
first string.
Behrman was demoted to the
third unit after the opening loss
to Stanford and had to play be-
hind Jim Kanicki last Saturday.
Daugherty and line coach Gordie
Serr did not show signs of dis-
pleasure with Kanicki's play, but
were impressed by the "Big Bear's"
new attitude and hustle.
An all-American as a junior,
Behrman showed signs of laziness
and lack of hustle before being
RonRubick, who set a single
game rushing record for the Green
and White against North Carolina,
will still be running with the sec-
ond unit. This means Sherman
Lewis will be the starting tailback.
Lewis did not do badly himself
against NorthCarolina, as he rip-
ped off 107 Yds. in 13 carries.
The Manistique back, Rubick,
rambled through the Tarheel line
to the tune of 207 yds. in 13 car-
ries for a 14.8 yd. per carry aver-
age. This coupled with his Stan-
ford performance makes him the
leading -Spartan ground gainer
with 265 yds. in 28 carries.
This was good for an average of
9.4 yds. a tote.

He also has a perfect passing
mark-connecting on two out of
two passes against Stanford for
53 yds. This added to his rushing
yardage leaves him with 318 yds.
in two games.
Joining Behrman in the Spar-
tan's top line will be Matt Snor-
ton and Ernie Clark, ends; Steve
Mellinger a n d Herb Paterra,
guards; and Dave Herman and
Ed Budde, tackles. As Daugherty
said, "This line only goes 226, with
Jim Bobbitt out, but what differ-
ence is 10 pounds when they get
that big."
His reference to Bobbitt being
out, stems from a severe ankle
sprain the No. 1 tackle suffered
in the Stanford tilt. He may see
limited action Saturday, but has
not run on the leg in 11 days, and
will not be in top condition if he
should see action.
State will send out a backfield
that includes: Lewis, Charlie Mig-
yanka, Dewey Lincoln and Cap-
tain George Saimes.

week by throwing many key
blocks. This was true of the whole
Spartan team in their initial win.
The whole squad blocked well, but
were miserable on pass defense.
Junior Edge, North Carolina's
quarterback, riddled the State sec-
ondary by connecting on 19 of 27
passing attempts for 245 yds.
As expected, State has not un-
veiled a passing game to date, and
are no serious threat to do so Sat-
urday. Migyanka, who earned the
starting berth on the West Coast,
showed good signs of ball handling

in last week's game, but did not
go to the air enough to be honest-
ly judged as a thrower.
With Michigan's fine quarter-
backs, Daugherty expressed con-
cern in not only stopping the Wol-
verine aerial attack, but their roll-
outs also. He said, "The rollout isj
one of the hardest plays in theI
book to defense.",
In stressing the point he gave,
credit to Dave Glinka for his
fine quarterbacking performance
to date, but spoke favorably of
Bob Timberlake.

He told the Michigan football
writers that Timberlake is one of
the finest quarterback prospects
in the country. "He has the size,
strength and speed, as well as be-
ing able to throw the ball well."
One thing the Spartans will be
trying to prevent is the Wolverines
moving in close enough for Tim-
berlake to kick the field goal. With
only two games gone by, the MSU
eleven has sad memories of the
three-pointer from its 16-13 loss
to Stanford.

Michigan Sports History

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
third in a series of articles spot-
lighting, great moments in the his-
tory of Michigan sports. Today's ar-
ticle concerns the 1947 Michigan
State 'contest.)
Opening day, September 27, 1947,
Herbert 0. "Fritz" Crisler's mighty
Michigan Wolverines crushed a
hapless Michigan State College
squad, 55-0.
The Wolverines had already
beaten their intra-state foes for
the past four years, but this 40th
annual contest had been head-
lined as something of a coaching
rarity. State's coach was Clarence
"Biggie" Munn, who had served
as an assistant under Crisler. To
make the pirating even more com-
plete, the Spartans had as their
backfield coach, Forest (I-blocked-
for-Tom-Harmon) Evashevski.
'M' Favored
Both teams were expected to use
similar type offenses and de-
fenses, but the Maize and Blue
were rated as favorites as they
entered the Wolverine stadium
before 70,000 spectators.
Michigan's starting lineup had
All-American candidate Bob Chap-
puis and Bump Elliott at the half-
back slots; Jack Weisenberger,
fullback, and Howard Yerges,
Chappuis had looked good the
previous year and he lived up to
his advance billing in this game.
He scored three touchdowns and
passed for another as Michigan

completely dominated the action
throughout the game.
The Wolverines scored the first
time they got their hands on the
ball, going 55 yards in seven plays
with Weisenberger going over
from the 2-yd. line for the tally.
Elliott later raced 56 yds to set up
the first of Chappuis' scores. El-
liott got into the scoring column
himself with a 3-yd plunge before
half time.
After intermission, State could
fare no better in the defensive
department. Chappuis scored, later
passed for a 35-yd touchdown, and
completed his day with a 7-yd
Statistically, Michigan couldn't
have been better. They rolled up
246 yards on the ground, but did
better through the air lanes by
completing 10 of 14 for an amaz-

ing 258 yards. The Maize and Blue
had compiled an unheard of 504
yards total offense.
Defense, Too
The defense was just as good,
however. The Spartans had at-
tempted ten passes and completed
none, while they were only able
to roll up a meager 56 yds rushing.
As a matter of fact, the Spartans
had been unable to penetrate Wol-
verine territory until late in the
third quarter. Their closest of-
fensive thrust to the Michigan
goal line was stopped on the 37-
yd stripe.
CrisIer's charges had started the
season in a whirlwind fashion.
They kept right on marching the
entire year, went undefeated and
untied in nine games, and won
the Rose Bowl over Southern Cali-
fornia, 49-0.
