who has proved outstanding on For the most part, tackles were'
both offense and defense. Another in the news this week. In a depar-'

ture from past performances, El-
liott used the tackle-eligible play
against the Illini, and although it
didn't materialize for a comple-
tion, it is looked upon as a possi-
bility for the future.
Even though Tom Keating was
the tackle made eligible in Satur-
day's game, Elliott indicated that
any of the other tackles might also
be used in that capacity.
When asked for a forecast on
the Big Ten championship derby.
Elliott commented, "I'd say Wis-
consin was in the best position.
They play seven conference games,
and have only Illinois to beat be-
fore taking on Minnesota. On the
other hand, the Gophers, who also
play seven, must 'get by Purdue in
order to stay in contention. Purdue
and Northwestern, playing only six
Big Ten contests,' must depend
upon outside help if they are to
take the, title."
It is perhaps disappointing {or
the Wolverines that they don't

remaining games. The prospect of
assuming a spoiler's role could
have added a bit of incentive to
the improvement the team has
made in the past two weeks.

Coach Blames Balance
For Upsets in Big Ten


tough all-out football. After we
beat them we lost the next week
to Minnesota. After Northwestern
beat them, it lost to Wisconsin.
"Football dominance is level-
ling off through the country.
There never will be a time again
when one school dominates the
sport, like Notre Dame used to do,
for instance.
Better Coaching
"Better coaching in high schools
is producing much better talent.
20 or 30 major colleges can't get
all the good prep players as they
once did because so many more
good ones are being turned out."

COLUMBUS --'Coach Woody
Hayes, who has watched his team
win over, or lose to, some pretty
fair teams this year, figures he'll
be meeting one of the best in the
business Saturday.
The Ohio Staters will be hosts
to Oregon's once-beaten Webfoots,
and Hayes and scout Jim Herb-
streit told a terrifying tale of the
invaders' prowess at yesterday's
press luncheon.
"Oregon is one of the finest
teams in the country," Hayes said.
"It is well coached, has great
running and passing, and its de-
fense is outstanding. The Web-
foots haven't been bothered by
injuries, and we'll have our job
cut out for us."
Best on Coast
Herbstreit, who spied on Oregon
as it whipped Stanford and Wash-
ington State, declared:
"Oregon was good last year
(Ohio won, 22-12). This year it
undoubtedly is the best on the
Coast-and Coast football is up
this season. Coach Len Casanova
says this is the best team he's
had at Oregon-and remember he
almost whipped us in the 1958
Rose Bowl (Ohio won, 10-7).
"You 'can bet they'll come in
here under a full head of steam,
and in left halfback Mel Renfro
I think they'll show us the best
back in the country."
Renfro Does Everything
Renfro, the sensational junior
from Portland, has scored 12
touchdowns in eight games, rush-
ed 96 times for 617 yds., caught
14 passes for 237 yds., and com-
pleted four of 11 passes for two
scores. He's also run back seven
kickoffs 'for 166 yds.
Quarterback John Mummey and
fullback Dave Francis, Ohio's two
leading ground-eaters, have com-
bined for only 703 yds. in 134

DON'T THROW IT, MIKE-This was the play that led to Mich-
Igan's big interception in Saturday's win over Illinois. Here
Illini quarterback Mike Taliaferro (19), just being tackled by
Jim Green, is about to heave the ball to Michigan end Ben
Farabee (not pictured). With the help of a key block from
Wayne Sparkman (33), Farabee returned the ball 45 yds. to
set up Michigan's second score.


RAIMEY FINDS A IOLE-Michigan halfback Dave Raimey (with the ball) finds a hole opened
up by the left side of the Michigan line Saturday. Illinois end Rich Callaghan (88), slipping off a
block from Bob Timberlake, closes in on Raimey.

IOWA CITY - Iowa football
Coach Jerry Burns put his Hawk-
eyes through a short ,workout in
sweat clothes yesterday with the
emphasis on offense.
Iowa meets Michigan in the fin-
al home game of the season here
Burns made one lineup change,
switching second string tackle
George Latta to the first unit, re-
placing Gus Kasapis, of Detroit.
Burns said Tony Giacobazzi is
out with a knee injury and won't
know until tomorrow if Giacobazzi
will see action Saturday. Larry
Ferguson is also being hampered
by leg and chest injuries.

"We are looking ahead to the
Michigan and Notre Dame games
and a chance to finish the season
with a 5-4 record," Burns said.

CHAMPAIGN-Illinois had high
hopes yesterday of regaining the
services of fullback Dave Pike and
end Thurman Walker for its at-
tempt to upset Wisconsin in a.
home football encounter Saturday.
Both key men suffered knee in-
juries last week, Pike in practice
and Walker in the Michigan game.
The team physician said both
should be able to play Saturday.
Meanwhile, Coach Pete Elliott
gave his team its first day off of
the season.

minute, workout and a briefing on
Illinois plays yesterday as prep-
arations got under way for Satur-
day's Big Ten game at Champaign.
Quarterbacks Ron VanderKelen
and Harold Brandt worked on pass
patterns to be employed against
Illinois. Other members of the
squad were drilled on Illinois of-
Guards Jim Schenk and Jon
Hohman and fullback Jim Purnell
were sidelined with leg injuries
suffered in last Saturday's 37-6
rout of Northwesterri. Coach Milt
Bruhn said it would not be known
until later in, the week whether
they'll be ready for the Illini.
Gophers held their longest Monday
practice of the season yesterday,
indicative of the stress the coach-
ing staff is placing on preparations
for the invasion of Purdue Satur-

The Gophers drilled nearly 22
hours after hearing a scouting re-
port from Assistant Coach Wally
He termed Purdue physically
the toughest team Minnesota has
met this year. "They have really
found themselves," Johnson said of
Purdue. "They played good, sound
football to beat Michigan State"
E V A N S T O N - Northwestern
probably will be without first-
string end Gary Crum for the
Michigan State game Saturday.
Crum suffered a twisted knee in
the Wisconsin game. Others on the
injured list are fullback Bill Swin-
gle with bruised ribs and middle
linebacker -Dick Olson with a
sprained ankle. Swingle, Olson and
guard Jack Cvercko, who missed
the Wisconsin game with a knee
injury, are listed as doubtful for
Saturday's game.

LAFAYETTE - Purdue Coach
Jack Mollenkopf guided his first
two units through a light work-
out yesterday and started the rest
of the squad on offensive plans
for Saturday's football clash at
Mollenkopf reported, "We will
not know until about Wednesday
how our injured are coming along,
but in the meantime we must get
together a real fine offense for
Minnesota's gr--at defense."
The coach cited scouting re-
ports which he said indicated
Gopher tackles Bobby Bell and
Carl Eller and linebacker Julian
Hook "are probably the best we
have seen this year."

The Hoosiers have an open date
Saturday and then meet Purdue

urday to Ohio State, 10-7, in their
third defeat by Big Ten teams
by five points or less.
Dickens said the extent of a
pinched nerve injury to captain
and wingback Nate Ramsey could
not be determined for several days.
