?aimey Battles Stacked Defenses

They're going to have to start
calling Dave Raimey "Stonewall"
this year.
That's what Michigan's starting
right halfback runs into nearly
everytime he carries the ball these
days, and it's starting to show in
the meager rushing average of 3.3
yds. he has been held to so far this
year. N
There is only one credential
to commend the Wolverines' lead-
ing rusher and leading scorer of
the past two years-so far he has
scored a whopping two-thirds lof
Michigan's touchdown production
over the entire season.
In other words, Raimey has
scored four touchdowns.
No Blame
The husky senior from Dayton,
Ohio, admits frankly that -he is
disgusted with what he calls the
bad year he is having, and yet no-
body close to the situation has
ever considered blaming Raimey.
for the impotent Michigan offense
which has been able to produce
only one win in six games.
With halfback Bennie McRae
and fullback Bill Tunnicliff gone
but not forgotten, Raimey is the
Blanchard Out
For Season
Michigan's football team has
suffered the loss of another line-'
Reserve center Don Blanchard
underwent an operation on Mon-
day to remove two torn cartilages
from his knee. Blanchard, a jun-
ior from Sturgis, stands 6'3" and
weighs 233 lbs. He is throughdfor
this season, but said he hopes to
be able to play spring football.-

man opponents can key their de-
fenses around this year.
"We haven't had as much to
complement him this year," agrees
Backfield CoachuHankbFonde.
"He's carrying quite a big load
and all the other teams have been
aiming for him."
"Dave is just as good a player
this year as he was a season ago,"
insists Head Coach Bump Elliott.
"We haven't been able to provide
him with many holes."
Other Troubles
Raimey has been having health
problems, too. He's had minor ail-
ments in his back, ankles and
shoulders since he broke into the
lineup as a substitute for Denny
Fitzgerald two years ago and
scooted 25 yds. for a touchdown
the first time he carried the bail.
The shoulder injuries date back
to his high school days, but a
harness that pinions his arms
closer to his body seems to have
helped him out.
"I started wearing it in the MSU
game (last month), and I haven't
had any trouble since then,"
Raimey explains.
If Raimey has any real misgiv-
ings about the lack of support ne's
been getting, he has been keeping
his feelings to himself.
Good Attitude
"He has a real fine attitude,"'
points out Fonde. "You have to
admire him for the attitude and
courage he's shown and for has
efforts to help the team. He's
been taking a whale of a lot of
punishment out there.
"The very fact that he's so hard
to bring down means that some-
times he's going to have five or
six guys on top of him," Fonde
The only worry Raimey has ex-
pressed is a joking admission that
the professional scouts are prob-
ably losing interest in him because
his rushing average has dropped
.... .... ....."';::J ... s

from the 4.7 and 5.0 he carried
for the last two years.
It is his hope that he can make
the grade with the pros in order
to finance his way through dental
school. Raimey married the form-
er Marlena Price earlier in the
season and has an eye out for the
Pro Prospect
Fonde feels that Raimey defin-
itely has the physical skills to be
a good pro prospect, no mats er
what kind of year this is for Mich-
Raimey has that rare combina-
tion of power and speed to make
him a breakaway threat from any
point on the field.
Fonde points to Raimey's fine
size as a potential pro (5110"1, 195
lbs.) and his excellent speed (he
was a :09.8 dashman in high
school and is about even with
sophomore Dennis Jones as fast-
est man on the team).
"He's got great power," Fonde
comments. "He's strong enough to

break tackles. And he has a real
good knack for breaking a hole
clean when it's there."
Fonde has categorized Raimey
as the "pick-and-go" type of run-
ner, who makes good use of his
blockers. "And he himself is the
kind of blocker the pros like to see
in a running back," he adds.
Raimey has no formula for
carrying the ball. "I never think
about running," he explains. "I
just run."
But so far, he "just runs" into
mountains of enemy tacklers.
"We've been hopeful we can break
him loose and give him a good o'-
portunity to go all the way," com-
ments Fonde.

All right, sports fans. Here it is: the new sports staff method for
picking this Saturday's winners. Take all the land-grant colleges and
divide them by those on probation with the NCAA. Subtract the
number of coaches fired in the last decade and multiply by the co-
efficient of linear expansion. This willegive you the first team. Pick
the second one.
You, too, can be a grid swami. Take your stab at this week's games
-win and you take home two free tickets to the Michigan Theatre
and a subscription to the Football News. All you have to do is pick up
an entry blank at The Daily Building, 420 Maynard Street.
And if you win it three weeks in a row you gain life membership
to The Michigan Daily sports staff, replacing Jan (Crystal Ball) Win-
kelman. Jan is trailing first-place swami Jim Berger by eight whole
games in staff picks. It's a disgrace.

team that was losing its 18th
straight game against a Big Ten
opponent, 26-21.
When the dust had settled, the
Big Ten shakeup left five teams
in the running for championship
honors with the season over half
completed. Only Northwestern,
ranked tops nationally, still boasts
a clean slate; the Wildcats have
Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan
State, and Purdue on their tails
with one defeat apiece.
The conference picture is bound
to clear up this weekend with Pur-
due at Michigan State, Northwest-
ern tangling with Wisconsin, and
Iowa traveling to meet Minneso-
ta's Gophers.
Spartan Fizzle
Minnesota's Gibraltar defense
held Michigan State's 338-yd. per
game ground attack to a meek 30
yds. while handing the Spartans
their second defeat (they drop-
ped one to Stanford the first
game). Quoth MSU mentor Daugh-
erty: "We were a badly beaten
team, and I can't explain the lack
of spirit. I thought the team would
be up for this one."
The Spartans will have to be up
for the next one. Purdue's Boiler-
makers have a habit of coming
back snarling after being surpris-
ed with their offense down. (Re:
Purdue smashed Michigan. 37-0,I
after being defeated by Miami of
Ohio.) The fate of QB DiGravio is
a question mark for Saturday; the
Purdue star suffered an ankle in-
jury in practice this week while
holding a tackling dummy.
Aerial Duel
Ron VanderKelen and Tommy
Myers will duel through the air
lanes with Northwestern's blank-
less record on the line.VanderKel-
en paced Wisconsin to a 34-12 win
over ailing Michigan with some
bull's-eye shooting.
Myers completed 16 of 26 passes
for 243 yds. and three touchdowns
against the Hoosiers, While out
to stop Myers, the Badgers will
have to cope with fullback Swingle,
who neatly wrapped up 129 yds.
rushing last Saturday in 18 carries
(that's seven yds. per run).
Iowa, 2-2 in the Big Ten, will
have to come up with something
special in the offense department
Ito crack Minnesota's defensive

wall. One key might be quarter-
back Matt Szykowny's air arm.
Meanwhile the Gophers found
last Saturday that quarterback
Duane Blaska can run as well as
pass - the Minnesota helmsman
led the Gophers in their "best
game of the year." Blaska only
committed one goof: running at
the MSU five with nothing but
daylight between him and the goal
line Blaska simply dropped the ball
-MSU's George Azar recovered
the ball.
After throwing a good scare in-
to Northwestern, Indiana will
journey to Columbus to meet.Ohio
State's disillusioned Buckeyes.
Virtually out of the title picture,
the Bucks are 3-3 overall. The
Hoosiers are mired in the Big Ten
cellar with Michigan; both have
0-4 conference marks.
Brother coaches Pete and Bump
Elliott tangle in another battle of
the basement at Ann Arbor. Pete's
Illini will be directed by QB Mike
Taliaferro, who passed for the first
Illini TD last week as the Illini
ended the longest run of defeats
for a Big Ten team in 47 years.
