Michigan Battles Minnesota in Homecoming C

SATURD es, CTOBER 27, 1962

OSU, Wisconsin Tilt
Highlights Big Ten_

Wolverines Need To Get Offense Going;
Gophers Have Typically Tough Defense


It's funny how tradition can
snake a "big" game out of what
most fans think of as a bore.
That's why the Michigan-Min-
nesota game is rated as one of
the big games in the Big Ten. The
traditional battle for the Little
Brown Jug and homecoming are
supposed to give something to the
Wolverine squad that it hasn't
shown all season-an offense.
The Irish of Notre Dame fondly
look back on their past perform-
ances against the Wildcats of
Northwestern in the traditional
battle for the shillelagh. The Wild-
cats are undefeated in the Big
Ten, but experts cite this tradi-
tional battle plus the fact that the
Wildcats may have a let down
after their stunning 19-14 of Ohio,
State as reasons why the Irish
will give the Northwestern team
a battle for the victory.
Big One
The "BIG" game of today will
take place in Columbus, Ohio,
where the once-defeated (in the
Big Ten) Buckeyes take on unde-
feated Wisconsin.
The Bucs have been driven un-
mercifully by head coach Woody
Hayes this week in an effort to
snap them out of the doldrums
which have caused them to lose
one Big Ten game and one game
to the Bruins of UCLA, while the
Badgers had just enough drills to
keep them fresh after their 42-14
stomping of Iowa.
The Hawkeyes' bad luck seems
to come into three's. This week
they meet up with the Big Ten's
other undefeated team, the Boil-
ermakersof Purdue. The reason
that Purdue is undefeated in the
Big Ten is that they have only
one game-against Michigan.
Shell Shock
The shell-shocked Iowans have-
n't much chance against the Boil-
ermakers. They lost by 28 points
to the Badgers while the Boiler-
makers were winning by 37 points.
In another non-conference tilt,
Pete Elliott's Illini entertain
Southern California - they won't
be able to much else beside en-
Pro Roundup
nati Royals turned on the speed
last night and routed the St. Louis
Hawks 118-102 in a National Bas-
ketball Association game.
SYRACUSE ()-The Syracuse
Nats, with eight players in double
figures, hit on 53 per cent of their
field goal attempts last night and
whipped the Chicago Zephers 130-
112 for their third National Bas-
ketball Association victory without
a loss.
NEW YORK W)-Boston's proud
Celtics swept from behind a half-
time deficit with one of their cus-
tomary scoring bursts and sub-
dued the New York Knickerbockers
113-108 last night in a National
Basketball Association game.
It was the second victory in as
many starts for the defending
NBA champs-both against New
York-but it was a far cry from
the 149-116 drubbing the Celtics
administered the Knicks in Bos-
ton last Saturday.
Dayton Wins
First Game
DETROIT (P)-Dayton clicked
on a 37:yd. touchdown pass in the
final quarter last night and nipped
Detroit 13-12 on Dick Winkler's
extra point in an even match be-v
tween two victory-starved 'teams.
Tom Labeau's pass to Chuck
McElligott was the payoff strike

four minutes after Detroit had
gone ahead on the first play of
the last quarter.
Winkler's place kick gave Day-
ton its first victory in seven games
this season and inflicted winless
Detroit's fifth defeat.

tertain them. The game will be no
more than a divertissement for the
Golden Bears. Last week, South-
ern Cal downed California 32-6.
The Illini were defeated by the
Gophers last Saturday 17-0 but
made them work for their oats.
No Chance
Last Saturday Indiana lost to
the worst in the West, Washington
State, 21-0. Their chances for
gaining a victory today are prac-
tically nil. They play the rough,
tough Spartans of Michigan State.
The Spartans again practiced
behind locked gates to prevent, as
coach Duffy Daughtery puts it,
"let down after two real fine
wins in a row (28-0 against Mich-
igan and 31-7 against Notre
Only one game can be rated as
a toss-up in today's action-the
Ohio State-Wisconsin duel.

DOWN HE GOES-Michigan halfback Dave Raimey gets thrown
down by Purdue defenders in last Saturday's game after a short
gain. Raimey is still leading the rushers despite opponents' gear-
ing their defenses to stop him.

Offenses Battle on West Coast

Offensive power will be on
display today in Seattle when the
University of Washington Huskies
host the Oregon Ducks.
The Webfoots, despite its name,
is the national leaderhin total
offense. Its record for the season
stands at 4-1, the only loss com-
ing at the hands of the powerful
Texas Longhorns. Led by do-every-
thing halfback Mel Renfro who
finished second to teammate Jerry
Tarr in the 120-yd. high hurdles
last year in the NCAA track
meet, the Ducks backfield is filled
out by quarterback Bob Berry,
halfback Larry Hill and fullbacks
Bruce Snyder and Jim Josephson.
Tough Backfield
Washington, however, does not
have to take a backseat to anyone
in a comparison of backfields.
The Huskies have great back-
field depth. Halfback Charlie Mit-
chell is Washington's outstanding
back. Mitchell had to stay on the
bench last week because of an in-
jury, and may have to stay on the
bench this week because his re-
placement, Nat Whitmeyer, played
brilliantly against Stanford last
Calling signals for the Huskies
is little Bill Siler who weighs in
at 170 pounds. Pre-season prog-
nosticators predicted g1oomy
things for Washington this year
because of the loss of quarterback
Bob Schloredt, but as Washing-
ton's 4-0-1 record shows Siler has
more than done the job.
Lines for either team are no
pushovers. Both teams are boost-
ing members of their line for All-
American honors. Center Roy
Mansfield of Washington and
Tackle Steve Barnett of Oregon
are each highly touted on the
Pacific coast.
In other West coast action,
Spartan conquerers Stanford go
against UCLA. Penn State travels
to Berkeley to play California in
one of the week's major inter-sec-

tional games, and Oregon State
meets West Virginia.
In the Southwest, Texas meets
underdog Rice as the Longhorns
fight to keep their fourth national
ranking. Ordinarily this game
would be rated a walkaway for
the steers but the Rice Owls are
at Houston and Texas hasn't beat-
en Rice at home in a decade. Any-
way the game has got Texas
c o a c h Darrell Royal worried
enough to say that he would be
satisfied if his team could get
safely past the Owl by one touch-
In other Southwest action, Bay-
lor meets Texas A&M with both
teams needing a win to stay in
the running for Southwest Con-
ference honors, while Southern
Methodist meets an injury riddled
Texas Mech.
In the Big Eight, which has
matured into a hotbed of football
powerhouse this year, Kansas
State meets the rejuvenated Okla-
homa Sooners which defeated
Kansas last week 13-7. Kansas,
meanwhile, will take on Oklahoma
State. Nebraska will be fighting
overconfidence more than the op-
posing team as they play a scan-
dal-rocked Colorado. Missouri will
start their game with Iowa State
with starting halfbacks K e n
Hinkle and Vince Tobin on the
sidelines, but if they are anything
like another "injured" Big Eight
back, Bill "Thunder" Thornton of
Nebraska, they won't be there
Lopsided Contests
In the South a lot of lopsided
contests are in prospect. LSU,
ranked number six in the nation,
is a two touchdown favorite over
Florida. Seventh ranked Missis-
sippi meets Vanderbilt, whose
coach Art Guepe quit this week
after 13 winless games and two
years of alumni criticism.
Alabama takes time out for an
expected breather against ''ulsa.
Tulsa is the Missouri Valley Con-

ference pacesetter, but has been
beaten both times it ventured
against non-conference foes.
Duke at Maryland should pro-
vide an interesting battle for stu-
dents of the game, as it is played
in the South. Maryland, led by
rifle armed quarterback Dick
(Rifleman) Shiner from Lebanon,
Pa., has its finest team since its
national honor winning gridders
of 1955. Duke, deep in fast backs
able to execute the razzle-dazzle of
play Blue Devil coach Bill Murray
has instituted, has been a mild
disappointment so far this year.
In the East, a battle in psy-
chology is shaping up in the game
between Army and George Wash-
ington. Dietzel has already re-
Rink Opens
The Michigan Ice Rink will
open for public skating Sunday,
according to Manager Jack
Blott. The following times will
be in effect: Sundays, 3-5 p.m.;
Saturdays, 10:30 a.m. to 12:30
p.m.; Wednesdays and Fridays,
8-10 p.m.; Tuesdays and Thurs-
days, 10 a.m. to 12 noon; Wed-

ceived quite a bit of publicity for
his Chinese Bandits, Coolie Hats
and Battle Flags. However, word
has come from Washington, D.C.,
that coach Jim Camp of George
Washington has instituted a pro-
gram which he calls his 110 per-
centers. Any player who gives a
110 percent, no mean trick, in
practice and during the games gets
to paint his helmet blue instead
of the ordinary color, white. So
far 21 of the 35 squad members
have attained this level of perfec-
tion. This means that Camp is able
to field a team which is the
equivalent of 12 ordinary men,
maybe Army can play their mule
to make up the difference.

Sports Editor
The Michigan football team
comes out of hiding today in an
attempt to capture the Little
Brown Jug from Minnesota and
get back some Big Ten prestige in
the process.
Head coach Bump Elliott had
his charges practice all week in
secret, but it was no secret what
happened in the Wolverines' first
two Big Ten games. It's also no
secret that Minnesota has its us-
ually tough defense and Michigan
has yet to score in the Big Ten.
Meet Again
This is the 53rd meeting of the'
two schools and like most teams,
Minnesota has a long way to go
to catch up in the series. Michigan
leads 32 to 17 with three ties.
They have been mostly defen-
sive battles and this year's en-
counter figures to go the same
way. There have been 23 shut-outs
and the losing team has scored
more than 10 points only eight
Minnesota this year has been
stung in the air by Northwestern
for a 34-22 loss, but the Golden
Gophers have shut out their other
three opponents, Missouri, Navy,
and Illinois. That aerial assault
was caused by the Wildcats' soph-
omore quarterback Tom Meyers,
but he had to evade the ranging
Minnesota linemen all day to do it.
Got the Rush
Navy's coach, Wayne Hardin,
commented that Minnesota had
the hardest -charge he had ever
seen. The Middies rushed for neg-
ative yardage on that day.
It would appear that the only
way Michigan will be able to move
the ball is through the air, and
any success on that score will de-
pend on whether the line can
keep those Gopher linemen out of
the backfield.
Of particular trouble will be
the Gophers' all-American tackle
Bobby Lee Bell. He only weighs
217 lbs., but is very quick and has
great lateral speed. The fear of
all backs is that they will be
caught trying to turn the corner
by Bell. He's been in the oppon-
ents backfield so much this year
that there is a movement on to
make him an all-American half-
back this year.
Bell Stopper
Drawing the job to stop the
fearsome Gopher is Joe O'Don-
nell, the only solid performer in
the line for Michigan this year.
O'Donnell has a 10-lb. advantage
and being a former fullback and
guard, has good speed. Elliott only
hopes that O'Donnell doesn't get
so tired that he can't punt, be-
cause the Wolverines have almost
run that play more than any
Any changes in the Michigan
attack has been hidden by the
secrecy, but something must be
done to generate some offense.
The running attack this season
has not jelled, due jointly to a
small line and slow backs. And

ond week in a row. The big soph-

The series has been a long and
brilliant one with many exciting
and important battles. Today's
meeting could be just as exciting
as any other, but its importance
is minimal. It can only decide
whether Minnesota has winning
or mediocre season and whether
Michigan has a mediocre season-
or the third worst in its history.
