Elliott Praises Morale of 'M' Gridders

Michigan Sports History

It was Paul Dietzel, highly suc-
cessful Army mentor, who said
prior to the Army-Michigan game,
"You've got to make the game fun
for the players or else they won't
want to play it.'And it's a princi-
pal job of the coach to make his
players want to play the game."
But what does a coach do when
he is having a bad year; when his
team, lacking size, experience, and
depth, and hurt by dropouts and
ineligibilities, finds itselfthe un-
derdog, in almost every game it
This is the sad problem faced
by Wolverine head Coach Bump
Elliott this season, and it is his
job to make the best of it, while
trying to improve the situation.
"When you find yourself the
underdog week after week, it is
bound to affect your outlook, but
it is the mark of a determined,
sincere team not to let it affect
performance. Nobody likes to look
in the paper and see that the
t beamhe plays for is supposed to
lose by four' touchdowns, but a
player with good morale will not
play like a four-touchdown under-
dog," a chilled Elliott commented
after .yesterday's long, cold prac-
"Morale," he observed, "is a hard
word to define. You can try to
work out some sort of psychologi-
cal definition, but basically, as

far as football is concerned, it is
the desire to want to play the
game. If a team has it, the mem-
bers will be eager to play.' They
will be loyal to the team, the
coaches, and to their assigned
tasks. A team without it will sim-
ply go through the motions."
Not Only Physical
"Football is an emotional game
-very emotional. And unless the
players have a deep emotional de-
sire to play, to participate, to
cooperate, it is not played all out
as it is meant to be played," he
Elliott continued, saying that
coaches varied in their pre-game
tactics, for raising morale. "The
team must have this morale, this
desire to play the game, and it is
the job of the coaches to bring it
out into the open." Here he sound-
ed much like Dietzel; who also felt
that coaches must bring out a
desire to play in the team.
Going on to describe his pre-
game method, Elliott revealed that
he does not use the fiery, damning,
or imploring tactics used by some
coaches. Rather, he informs them
of the situation, goes over their
assignments with them, and tries
to give them needed confidence.
All this is a very trying if very
integral part of coaching a collegi-
ate team. It would be even worse

if it were to do no good. If, for
instance, the team refused to show
any signs of wanting to play the
game. Fortunately, this is not the
case here.
"I admire' this team. They are
as eager right now as they were
after the Army game or before the
season's opener. They play their
hearts out on Saturday, then come
right back on Monday for another
week of practices without any

dropoff in spirit or willingness to
Spirit Equals Ability?
"A team can be good, or it can
be bad. This has no relation be-
tween ability and spirit. Our record
this year may be nothing to boast
about, but it is certainly not a
result of poor morale. As far as
willingness to learn, to improve, to
work hard and not give up, I feel.
it safe to say that this is probably

the finest group of men I have ever
had the pleasure of working with,"
he concluded.
And then, Bump Elliott, a much
beleaguered, tried, and cold Big
Ten football coach, turned to walk
to the dressing room.
On his face was the closest
thing to a happy smile a coach can
have when he has a team that
really tries all out to win and

Line-ups Changed by Coaches

When Michigan's 79 blue-jer-
seyed athletes come pouring out
of the tunnel at Michigan Sta-
dium this Saturday to face Wis-
consin they'll have one thing in
mind-get a point.
Any kind of point. But at least
a point--field goal, safety, touch-
down or forfeit. If they don't, the
1962 Michigan football team is du-
biously immortalized in the 'M'
record books; in the 84-year his-
tory of grid action the Maize and
Blue has never been shut out in
four consecutive games.
"M' Leads
Wisconsin's soph crew is tough,
but the Wolverines have at least
one thing going for them. In the
25-game history between the two
schools Michigan has outscored
the Badgers 408 to 162 while win-
ning 18 contests, the series begin-
ning back in 1892. The Wolverines
won then by a slim 10-6 margin.
Wisconsin took the next two games
and then between the years of 1902
and 1927 Michigan rolled by their

cross-lake rivals in eleven straight
Back in '50 .. .
Lately the Blue hasn't fared so
well. The last time Michigan won
was in 1950: the Badgers have
been victorious twice since then,
once in 1959, 19-10, and again in
1960, 16-13.
The 1950 Wolverines, with names
like Ortmann, Dufek (now 'M'
frosh coach), and Perry, played
havoc with the hapless Badgers,
giving up two late fourth-quarter
TD's in a 26-13 win. Ortmann,
leading passer in the Big Ten at
the time, paced the Michigan at-
tack while Dufek accounted for
the third and fourth Wolverine
The 1960 Michigan loss to the
Badgers was the first ever on the
Wisconsinhome grounds. Sparked
by quarterback Ron Miller's aerial
assault, the Badgers matched
Michigan touchdown for touch-
down until late in the fourth quar-
ter when Badger QB Jim Bakken
booted the game-winning field goal
from 16 yards out.

By The Associated Press
Bump Elliott put the Wolverines
through an offensive scrimmage,
their third in three days, yester-
day afternoon, in an attempt to
sharpen the blocking, tackling, and
"When you don't move the ball
in play-it's time to work," he
Elliott intimated that the Chan-
dler-to-Chapman pass combina-
tion which electrified fans in the
fourth period of the Minnesota
game, would not see as much use
against Wisconsin. "We ,feel that
the kind of offense which works
best against the Badgers does not
lend itself to the type of passing

game we used last week with
Chandler," he said.
He added that Capt. Bob Brown
and center John Blanchard would
probably not see action against
Wisconsin. Linebacker Dick Szy-
manski, however, should be up to
100 per cent efficiency for the

CHAMPAIGN - Illinois had a
long pass defense session yesterday
as scout Bill Tate warned that
Saturday's foe, Purdue, was cap-
able of the game-breaking pass,
just as Southern California was
last week.

EVANSTON - Northwestern's
defense was boosted yesterday
when No. 1 linbeacker Jerry Gosh-
garian, 190-1b. senior, was declared
ready for Saturday's Indiana game.

IOWA CITY-In one of their
most spirited practice sessions in a
couple of weeks, the Iowa Hawk-
eyes drilled hard for two hours
yesterday against Ohio State run-
ning and passing plays.
Coach Jerry Burns said the
Hawkeyes feel that Ohio State,
noted for its ground game, is "cap-
able in both areas." Iowa plays
the Buckeyes here Saturday.
LAFAYETTE-Purdue's varsity
tested its defense yesterday against
a freshman football squad which
simulated the Illinois offense.
Emphasis was on stopping the
Illini air attack, the favorite weap-
on of quarterback Mike Taliaferro.
It appeared there would be no

changes in the two alternate units
which have played most of the last
two games.

ana's first unit yesterday as the

Behind by three with the last
seconds ticking off. Michigan roll-
ed under Dave Glinka's passing
arm to the Badger 20. On the last
play of the game the Wolverines,
without huddling, went for the
three points. Wisconsin's Dan Van-
derVelden broke through to block
the kick; Glinka picked up the
rolling ball and fired to Tom John-
son who was forced out of bounds
at the seven as the gun sounded.
Halfback Dave Raimey scored
both touchdowns for the Blue,
once from the eight and again
from the 12.
Go Blue
When the Wolverines take the
field to muster up a few points
this weekend, they'll be facing a
Wisconsin team that was unde-
feated until last week's fall to
Ohio State. Michigan, on the oth-
er hand, is crawling around the Big
Ten cellar-none of the Wolver-
ines' 30 points this fall are in the
conference records.
Pistons Lose
Sixth in NBA;
Montreal Wins.
The Detroit Pistons opened their
home season last night by losing
to the Boston Celtics 115-100 in a
National Basketball Association
The Pistons led twice in the first
quarter, but then rookie John Hav-
licek and veteran Tom Heinsohn
took over and led the Celts to a
58-52 halftime advantage. Boston
never trailed again.
Heinsohn with 24 points and
Sam Jones with 23 led the Bos-
ton scoring, while Bailey Howell
counted 16 for Detroit.

ning the Syracuse Nationals de-
feated the St. Louis Hawks 126-

Bernie (Boom Boom) Geoffrion
fired the winning goal as the Mon-
treal Canadiens turned back the
Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3.

The Big Ten season as hit the
midway point with six teams still
within sniffing distance of the
Rose Bowl.
Northwestern, ranked a dark
horse by astute observers prior to
the~ season, sits on the top of the
standings and the national polls
with a 5-0 record, three wins com-
ing in conference play. Coach Ara
Parseghian has found a man with
a golden arm in quarterback Tom
Myers and a flanker back with fly-
paper fingers in Paul Flatley.
The Wildcats play Indiana this
Saturday and then Michigan State
and Wisconsin respectively. The
game with the Spartans could well
match two undefeated teams.
Boilers Tough
Purdue and Michigan State are
both unvanquished after two Big
Ten games. The Boilermakers have
shown the top defensive unit in
the conference, and the Spartans
have an outstanding rushing at-
tack. Both have great individual
stars like Don Brumm and Ron
DiGravio of Purdue and George
Saimes and Dave Behrman for the
Spartans. The two have a show-
down on Nov. 10.
In a battle of immovable ob-
jects, Minnesota, with its tackles

Carl Eller and Bobby Bell, collides
with Purdue on Saturday. The
Gophers, not allergic to roses, are
trying for their third consecutive
trip westward for the New Year's
Day classic.
In case of a tie for the confer-
ence title, however, the team which
has not participated in the Rose
Bowl for the longest time must
go. A team can no longer decline
to' play in the post-season game
as Ohio State did last year. The
Big Ten now has a formal agree-
ment with the Big Six schools on
the West Coast.
Bucks Not First
The Buckeyes, defending cham-
pions, are tied with Wisconsin and
Workmanship, Sanitation and
Service prevail at .

Minnesota with 2-1 records. Woody
Hayes' crew displayed the, brute
strength which prompted most ex-
perts to tout them as a favorite
for the league title in beating
a surprising Wisconsin team by
the slim margin of 14-7.
The Badgers have shown speed
and a sharp passing attack. Ron
VanderKelen to Pat Richter has
been overshadowed only by Myers
to Flatley.
Wisconsin must face Northwest-
ern after their encounter with the
Wolverines this Sautrday.
The bottom four teams in the
Big Ten have but one win among
them, that notched by Iowa. All,
have a chance to be spoilers.

VANDERKELEN-TO-RICHTER-Ron VanderKelen, Wisconsin's
quarterback, aims for his favorite target, end Pat Richter. The
VanderKelen-to-Richter combination provides the scoring punch
for the Badgers this Saturday while both hope their teammates
will keep the Wolverines scoreless for the first time since 1934.
