Wolverines' Outlook Darkens

The Inside Corner


with Dave Andrews

you? of course you.
we would like very much
to have you petition for
the central committee of
spring weekend '63.

That thud you just heard was
Michigan's football fortunes hit-
ting rock bottom.
Or so it would seem. For the
Wolverines, inthe wake of Sat-
urday's 37-0 pasting at the hands
of Purdue, have never ever be-
gun the Big Ten season in worse
fashion. Like being outscored 65-0
in your first two conference games
is something you just don't do
every year.
Nevertheless, head Coach Bump
Elliott could still manage a smile.
"The team's morale is better than
might be expected," he said, "but
the boys are all extremely disap-
pointed, and they know they have
a lot of work to do. We'll just
have to start all over again, stress-
ing the fundamentals, and work-
ing on better exectuion of plays."
Glinka Gone
But the first order of business
was picking up the pieces after
the Boilermaker bombardment had
subsided, and with one important
exception, things weren't as bad
as they might have been. The big
loss of the week, as is fairly well
known by now, was Dave Glinka,
the starting Wolverine quarterback
IPro *Grid

B.S. degrees or better
Assignments include the following areas:

for the last three seasons. Glinka
underwent surgery on his knee
yesterday, his college career over.
It was ironic that in the first
game he did not start since the
beginning of his sophomore year,
he was prevented from ever play-
ing in another one.
Glinka's departure leaves the
main part of the quarterbacking
duties at the hands of Bob Tim-
berlake, the soph surprise who's
been the only bright spot so far
this year. Having gained a starting
berth for the Purdue tilt, Tim-
berlake will now probably be com-
pelled to play more than his share
on both offense and defense.
Jones to the Rescue
The quarterback corps escaped
further harm when Frosty Eva-
shevski's head injury proved to be
no more than a temporary set-
back. Dennis Jones, a speedy 190-
lb. sophomore, performed ade-
quately against Purdue, and should
be of help in the defensive back-
Tackle Joe O'Donnell limped in-
to Saturday's game with a bad
ankle, and this had a marked ef-
fect on his punting, which averaged
only -31 Yds. for the day. But he
showed up unhobbled for practice
yesterday, and promises to be at
full strength for the Minnesota
contest this weekend. Starting
Wolverine center, Bill Muir, who
suffered a pinched nerve against
the Boilers, has likewise recovered.
Into Hiding,-
Elliott announced yesterday that
the team would hold secret practice
sessions all this week. "It makes
it a lot easier on us if people aren't
constantly watching everything we,
do," he explained. "But I don't
think we'll be cooking up any 'se-
cret' plays."
He was referring to Purdue's
first play from scrimmage Satur-
day, a touchdown pass from Ronj
DiGravio to Tom Fugate, suppos-
edly a "secret" maneuver which
Purdue concocted two days earlier.
"There was nothing secret about
it," said Eliott. "We just plain
made a mistake." And a big one,
Elliott attributed much of the
Wolverines' failure to what he

termed the "quick giveaway."
"Against both Michigan State and
Purdue we made costly mistakes
which put us behind early," he ob-
served. "That sort of took the
wind out of our sails, and before
we could recover, we were caught
again. The boys let one error get
them down, and this affected their
play the entire game."

that there may be some lineup jug-

A Sad Story
THE GRASS grew green on the floor of Rose-Ade Stadium Satur-
day, but about all Michigan fans could see was red through blood
shot eyes. The tears ran freely as Purdue destroyed 83 years of
Wolverine pride.
Actually the demise of Michigan's gridiron empire began long
ago. The Wolverines have gone slowly downhill since the last fine
team of the mid-fifties hung up its cleats after the 1957 season,
despite a reasonable showing the last two years.
Saturday was another story. Michigan not only was run off
the field by Purdue, but by its own marching band. The Wolverines
dragged off the field at halftime so slowly that William D. Revelli's
troops pushed the Michigan line back 15 yds. as they came out
of Purdue's south side end-zone tunnel.
Head Coach Bump Elliott, who, by the way was hung in
effigy on the Diag yesterday, was almost steamrollered by the tuba
It was a sad exibition.
Purdue scored on its first play from scrimmage. The Wol-
verines died. Michigan State at least had to use a fake field
goal attempt to get its first touchdown. The Boilermakers made
it look easy, horribly easy.
The five touchdowns they pushed across made 'a total of nine
in two games against Michigan-and if it wouldn't have been for
Michigan State's five seven fumbles and a Purdue fumble on the
goal line the count could easily have reached 12 or 13. Twenty
wouldn't have been out of reach if either Duffy Daugherty or
Jack Mollenkopf elected to give the regulars a little more exercise.
All of this boils down to make the natives restless, the alumni
talk, and Athletic Director H. O. "Fritz" Crisler to begin issuing
hourly "votes of confidence" for Elliott. Elliott in turn defends
his team, but to Michigan fans it's entirely obvious that if Michigan
is to win another game this fall a drastic change will have t
betake the Wolverines.
Lack Desire ... .
THE INDICTMENTS against this year's team are many, in fact
they make the Bennie Ooosterbaan era look like the golden years.
Michigan under Bennie, say what you may, was a fighting team.
Even in Oosterbaan's last year the Wolverines were only out of
one game. The rest were close.
This year's eleven, besides lacking speed, size, depth and Imagina-
tion, lacks leadership and desire. Only against Army and for some
minutes against Michigan State did Michigan appear to be "fired up."
The Wolverines appeared complacent against Nebraska and ho-
humish at Purdue. They lost both games.
Early in the season Elliott said that Michigan's football fate
depended largely upon how fast his sophomores developed into
Big "Ten caliber players. He said that the potential was there,
only experience was needed to become a representative Michigan
He didn't elaborate much on his veterans-and the way it looks
now it's a good thing he didn't.
It's hard to find fault with any individual with the exception
that few of them are real, honest to goodness, Big Ten quality foot-
ball players, but the fact remains that Michigan should not be as
bad as it has been. Unfortunately the Wolverines are.
Lineup Weak.. .
RY POSITION, Michigan is weak at end. Neither Captain Bob
Brown nor halfback convert Jim Ward, who were counted on
to shore up the position when the season started have performed
with any more than mediocre ability. Brown in particular has been
a disappointment.
At the tackles, Joe O'Donnell has done a good job, but lacks
the size to be as outstanding as he would be if he were a guard.
The rest of the tackle corps is young, and can be expected to get
better. At guard and center the Wolverines have been decent.
In the backfield, the attack is severly limited by lack of speed
and has largely been bottled up by a void in outside line blocking.
Dave Raimey, who was counted on to give the Wolverines
a breakaway threat that would keep the defense honest, - has
been easily defensed. The passing attack, which was supposed
to materialize with Michigan's wealth of quarterbacks, has fizzled
for two reasons-pass protection blocking and poor receivers.
The only receivers opponents have had to worry about are the
Michigan flankers. Raimey cannot catch passes because of his
limited shoulder movements. None of Michigan's other halfbacks have
shown receiving talent either.
What's the answer? Maybe this season there is none. Certainly
Elliott and his staff will keep looking. They've closed off practice
sessions, ala Duffy Daugherty and MSU, this week apparently to give
the squad some concentration, but how much good it will do is
questionable. The schedule the rest of the way does not get any
Maybe we loyal fans should blame Fielding Yost for the whole
thing. If he didn't beat so many teams maybe Michigan wouldn't
be expected to win. If this were the case it might be easier to do
Just that.
