Main Gopher Strength Lies in Line

"Minnesota is an experienced
junior-senior football team which
won't make the mistakes a team
with sophomores like our will
make," said Michigan end coach
Jack (Jocko) Nelson who has!
scouted the Gophers for the past
two weeks.
"They're a good team with no
real weak spots," Nelson continu-
ed, "although they lost Sandy!
Stephens (all-American quarter-j

back) I think their backfield is
better than last year."
Praises Blaska
Nelson particularly p r a i s e d
quarterback Duane Blaska, a sen-
ior who played behind Stephens
the last two seasons. "Although he
is not the runner Stephens is he
is a better passer. He will not
roll-out but drop back." Blaska
has 32 completions in 64 attempts
for three touchdowns.
According to Nelson, Minnesota
uses as basic Wing-T offense.'
"They also use the pro-typef
spread offense occasionally when
they pass.
Halfbacks Good
"Their halfbacks are good," he
said referring to Bill Munsey and
Jim Cairns. "Munsey is better this
year since he is running from the
right half." Last year he ran from.
left half.
"Also, Jerry Jones is a better
fullback than Judge Dickson in my
opinion," Nelson said.
The real forte' of Minnesota has
always been on defense and Nel-
son was quite impressed by the '62
version. Only Northwestern man-
aged to score against Minnesota1
this season. The Gophers have had
a 0-0 tie with Missouri, defeated,
Navyt21-0; lost to N.U. 32-24, and
defeated the Illini, 17-0.
Top Tackles
"There's no question about it;
they have two tackles that areI
as good as any college team'st
tackles in the country," he said
referring to senior Bobby Leet
Bell (6'4" 215 lbs. and consensust

all-American last season) and
junior Carl Eller (6'5%" 244 lbs.).
When asked if Bell had shown
any improvement over last season
Nelson smiled and said "when
you're as good as he was last sea-
son there isn't much more improv-
ing that you can do. He is a really
good tackle.
Possibly Weaker Line
"As far as the rest of the line,
I'd say they might possibly be
weaker than last year, but they
are by no means inadequate. Their
ends are not exceptional but
they're certainly not bad and this
goes for their two guards and
center also."
Nelson mentioned that one
guard, Larry Hartse (5'11" 199 lbs)
has been injured and will not play
against Michigan.
"Their pass defense appeared to
be good but Illinois got off 42
passes," said Nelson. The Illini
completed 17 for 206 yds.
Beaten with Passes
"Northwestern beat them with
their passes but this (Tom)
Myers is a great passer," he said
commenting on the Northwestern
game. "It was really close until
the very end. Minnesota kept up
with them all the way." Myers
completed 16 for 25 for 251 yds.
and four touchdowns.
Asked why Minnesota only
scored 17 points against Illinois,
a team which has been beaten
badly by every other team so far
this season, Nelson commented,
"Illinois isn't as bad as people
think they are, they're a young
team and improving every week."

CHICAGO(IP)-Big Ten C'tmmis-

had demanded a written apology
from Ohio State coach Woody
Hayes for public statements cri-


Cincinnati, St. Louis Record Wins;
Kerr Paces Close Syracuse Triumph

CINCINNATI (P)--After being
outplayed through the first half,
the Cincinnati Royals caught fire
last night and edged the Los
Angeles Lakers 116-115 in a Na-
tional Basketball Association game.
A crowd of 3,461 watched the
Royals win their home opener.
Th'e Royals trailed, 59-54, at
half-time. But they tied the score
at 80-all, and from then on it
was a seesaw battle until Oscar
Robertson's jump shot with 1:11
left put Cincinnati ahead, 116-
With 24 seconds left, Wayne
Embry fouled Jerry West. West
hit on one of three throws and
and closed the gap to one point.
Frank Selvy then foul-ed Arlen
Bockhorn with 18 seconds left.
Bockhorn missed his free throw,
but Bob Boozer grabbed the re-
bound and the Royals stalled out
the last seconds of the game.



NEW YORK (P)-Two foul shots
by Barney Cable with 12 seconds
left lifted the St. Louis Hawks to
a 110-109 victory over the Chicago
Zephyrs in the first game of a
NBA double header last night at
Madison Square Garden.
The St. Louis victory, second of
the young season for the Hawks,
was accomplished after theZe-
phers had erased a 15-point deficit
and finally had taken a 109-108
lead with 30 seconds left on Si
Green's tap-in basket.
Green missed a shot just before
the final buzzer and Walt Bel-
lamy, the Zepher star, missed a
rebound basket as the game ended.

NEW YORK (P)-The Syracuse
Nationals broke away in the fourth
period for a 123-119 victory over
the New York Knickerbockers in
the second game of a NBA double-
header before 6,976 in Madison
Square Garden last night.
Syracuse, ahead 92-89 going in-
to the fourth period, was sparked
by John Kerr and Dolph Schayes
to a 12-point margin, 110-98, and
then fought back the Knicks' late
Richie Guerin, who fouled out
with 50 seconds left after scoring

33 points, led the Knicks to with-
in three, 118-115, with 55 seconds
to play. But Larry Costello, Dave
Gambee and Hal Greer protected
the Syracuse lead with foul shots.
Kerr with 31 points including
20 points in the first quarter, led
the Nats to their second victory
without a loss.
V ols Pledge
Coach Support
KNOXVILLE (P)-The Student
Government Association of the
University of Tennessee gave a
unanimous vote of confidence to
the institution's coaching staff
and football team in a resolution
Bill Montgomery, president of
a student organization, presented
the resolution because, he said,
"sports writers have been blasting
our team and coaches."
Tennessee is off to its worst
football start since 1909. The Vols
have lost consecutive games to
Auburn, Mississippi State, Georgia
Tech and Alabama.

ticizing officiating in the Buckeyes'
loss to Northwestern Saturday.
Reed said that Hayes had agreed
to send him such an apology.
On a TV program Sunday in
Columbus, O., Hayes showed films
of the game, repeating one part
three times in which he said of-
ficials made an error in a key
play involving pass interference.
Hayes indicated that the error
cost Ohio State the game.
Personel Apology
"The apology is to be made to
me only because I represent the
conference," Reed said. "I think
Woody's public statements were
a very serious thing because of
three points:
1) "They reflect ,)n Woody him-
self and do not do him any credit
as a coach.
2) "They do serious discredit to
the game between these two fine
teams, which was excellently ptay-
ed-it was like throwing mud on
a fine painting.
3) "It violated a conference
coaches' agreement not to use
game films to dispute or discredit
"I considered all this very dis,
tressing. We always back up of-
ficials' judgment. They must make
split-second decisions and we con-
sider such public statements as
Hayes' as undermining this if fort."
At Meeting
Reed made the announcement
at the Chicago Football Writers'
Association meeting.
Murray Warmath, Minnesota
coach, told the group by telephone
that "There may be over-officiat-
ing in the area of pass interfer-
"But generally," he added in

response to questions, "I think
the big change in Big Ten of-
ficiating this season is the more
strict calls for piling on and other
"It's always the concern of a
coach to get his boys back up after
a loss, or get him out of the cl)ds
after a big victory," he added. "I
look for another close game with
the Irish. We have beaten them
the last three years by only a
total of nine points."
Myers Tops
NWA tt ack'
'EVANSTON VP) - Sophomore
Tommy (Gun) Myers of North-
western is such a brilliant passer
that two coaches junked their
football offenses and built new
ones around him.
When Myers was a freshman at
Troy (Ohio) High School, Bob
Ferguson was a senior. Ferguson
went on to become an all-America
fullback at Ohio State. When he
graduated from Troy, coach ,ou
Jillerat switched from the grind-
'en-out ground attack to an aerial
game tailored for Myers.
Myers completed 73 touchdown
passes at Troy, 32 in his senior
The 6-foot, 183 lb. Myers, a
business education student, has
hit on 61 of 90 passes for 811
yards and 8 touchdowns.
"He is the best passer I've ever
had," says Parseghian.
