QB LIGHTER, FASTER:

By DAVE GOOD
The biggest bandage still be-
longs to Bob Chandler.
But Michigan's hard-luck quar-
terback, relegated to the inevitable
role of a reserve since a knee in-
jury sidelined him in the Michigan
State game two years ago, is the
one everybody is talking about
during the first two weeks of fall
football practice.
Although Chandler is listed as
only the fourth-string quarterback

all-stater is more hopeful than
ever about getting to play football
for Michigan.-
Feels Good
"I feel the best of any time since
when I got hurt," Chandler ex-
plained. "I had a little trouble
with my knee last year because
I was heavier and it was harder
to move.
"But I got my weight down to
195 loading trucks on a dock job
and I worked out a lot on my own
and with my high school team."
Dr. A. W. Coxon, the team phy-
sician, is optimistic too. "I'd say
he looks like his old self," Dr.
Coxon commented. "His knee is.
solid, and of course he still has
a pretty good arm.".
Fonde appraises Chandler as
much faster than last year but
still not up to par with his condi-
tion before the injury.I
Not as Flexible
"I don't think his leg is as flex-
ible as it was, but of course just
having the tape on his knee would
tend to make it stiffer. But he's
real trim and is, moving well,"
added Fonde.
Fonde, who insists that Glinka's
job is not safe - "Nobody's job is
safe" - does imply that under
the proposed three-platoon sys-
tem Chandler stands a much bet-
ter chance of quarterbacking the
offensive specialists rather than
the starting team, which is slated
to go both ways.
The reason is simple enough.
Chandler says that since his high
school coach did not believe a
starting quarterback should play
defense too, he has had but little
experience in the defensive sec-
ondary.
Besides this, Fonde feels that
Chandler probably is still not fast
enough for defense.
H o w e v e r things turn out,
Piersall, Fan
Arrested For
Disturbances
BALTIMORE (A') - Washing-:
ton's centerfielder Jim Piersall
was arrested and charged with
disorderly conduct tonight when
he went into the stands at Balti-
more's Memorial Stadium after a
fan who was heckling him.
Police said Piersall was warm-
ing up before the. game last night
between the Orioles and the
Washington Senators when a fan,
Joseph Martin of Baltimore, be-
gan heckling him.
Police said Piersall invited Mar-
tin to come out on the field, but
Martin, instead, told Piersall to
come into the stands.
Police Sgt. Walter Mina came
between the two men before any
physical contact was made; police
said, and arrested both foradis-
orderly conduct.
Piersall and Martin posted $53
collateral apiece and returned to
the game.
A hearing in the case is sched-
uled this morning in Baltimore
Municipal Court.

Chandler is happy that he is still
able to play at all. Dr. Coxon rem-
inisced that twenty years ago,1
when physicians were using casts3
instead of operations, Chandler
would never have been able to play
again.
In fact, the operating physician,
Dr. Hayes, would like to- see the
crew-cut junior give up the game.
But Chandler just smiles and
says, "I really enjoy it and I guess
that's what keeps a guy coming
back. And the thought that I'll
have an extra year of eligibility
adds to the desire."
Bob Chandler wants to play
football.
Injuries Plague
Ohio State and
Purdue Coaches
COLUMBUS, Ohio - Near 90-
degree temperature gave Ohio
State's battered Buckeyes a little
rest today as coach Woody Hayes
held only light workouts.
Eight regulars are sidelined with
a an assortment of injuries. From
the offense, tackles Bob Vogel and
Darrell Sanders, halfback Bob
Klein and fullback Dave Katter-
henrich are out. On the defense
linebacker Gary Moeller, guard
Ray Krstolic, defensive back Bill
Mrukowski and end Matt Snell
are sidelined.

LAFAYETTE, Ind.,-Faced with
mounting injuries, Purdue coach
Jack Mollenkopf limited contact
in today's practice session.
Sidelined with assorted injuries
were fullbacks Tom Yakubowski
and Roy Walker; left tackle Don
Brumm, halfbacks Tom Fugate
and Jim Morel; and quarterback
Wayne Harvey.

ANN ARBOR-Coach Bump El-
liott yesterday described his Wol-
verines as "green-but a solid team
with striking potential."
Elliott, speaking at a football
luncheon, predicted his football
players would "take their toll" on
the field this fall."
He worked his charges lightly in
a practice cut short by bad weath-
er yesterday.

PITTSBURGH (A') - In pro
football today, the outside line-
backer probably receives less at-
tention from the fans than the
guy peddling the programs.
Ask the Sunday crowd to name
the best linebackers in the Nation-
al Football League and they'll usu-
ally evoke the names of Detroit's
Joe S c h m i d t, Chicago's Bill
George, New York's Sam Huff and
Philadelphia's Chuck Bednarik --
all middle linebackers.
But take it from veteran outside
linebackers John Reger and Tom
Bettis of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
the outside man is just as import-
ant as the middle linebacker and
even more so on pass defense.
"Each man has his own position
to cover and the responsibilities
are different," said Reger, a Steel-
ers' starter since his rookie season
in 1955. "But a middle linebacker
can rove around more and that's
why he gets all the tackles.
"There's no comparison on pass
defense," the 6'-1", 230-lb. Reger
added. "All the middle man has
to cover is the hook zone. But the
outside man has to be prepared for
the short pass, the screen pass and
the long pass.
"And that's tough when you
have a guy like Bobby Mitchell (of
Washington), who starts out like
he's going to block you and just as

you prepare for that he cuts out
and dashes down the field taking
a pass on a dead run. That's a
tough play for the outside line-
backer to make, and that's why
guys like Mitchell catch a lot of
passes for touchdowns."
Bettis, who played three years
as a middle linebacker and four
as corner man with the Green Bay
Packers before being traded to the
Steelers this year, agrees with
Reger.
"The outside man definitely has
more responsibility on pass de-
fense," Bettis said. "He has to be

able to cover those fast backs like
Willie Galimore (of Chicago) all
the way down the field man-to-
man.
"And all the time he is cover-
ing those passes he also has to be
ready for secondary pursuits like
on end runs and pitchouts."
In Reger's view, the toughest
play for an outside linebacker to
defend is the screen pass, not the
long pass to the break-away run-
ner.
"Usually, there's a fake draw on
the play," Reger, a Pro Bowl
choice the past three years, ex-
plained. "That gets you somewhat
out of position. Then, the ball is
flipped out there and its you and
two or three blockers. When you
see a man break up a screen pass,
you know he's done a good job."
Both Reger and Bettis think an
outside linebacker should get
more credit from the fans, but
neither is resentful toward his
teammates who play in the middle.
"I played the middle one year
myself," Reger said, "and I got a
lot of publicity. But I'm just as
happy on the corner."
"Naturally the middle lineback-
er gets more publicity," Bettis add-
ed H'.'e's always in the thick of
things. But the outside responsi-
bilities are just as great, and I'm
fortunate to have experience ply-
ing both positions."
And besides, it certainly beats
selling programs.

BOB CHANDLER
... heir apparent?

in the Michigan Gridiron Guide's
tentative lineup, his stock seems
to have skyrocketed with two news
bulletins released in practice:
Lighter, Faster
1) Chandler has returned 20
lbs. lighter than he was last year
and is maneuvering better than
at any time since his injury.
2) Head Coach Bump Elliott has
prepared to use the three-platoon
system of sending in replacements
rand could name the personable
junior as signal-caller on his
squad of offensive specialists.
In fact, Elliott and Backfield
Coach Hank Fonde have made it
plain that Dave Glinka, the regu-
lar quarterback for two years and
the logical choice to start this
year, could still be unseated by
Chandler or sophomores Frosty
Evashevski and Bob Timberlake.
Get Extra Years
Evashevski was another knee-
injury victim and, like Chandler,
was granted an extra year of eli-
gibility by the Big Ten.
Chandler has been the best
passer on the team . and was
ranked nearly even with Glinka
when both were sophomores.
But since his early-season injury
that year, Chandler has seen only
22 minutes of action, all last year.
He completed six of 11 passes, one
a picture 36-yarder to end Bob
Brown for a touchdown against
Army.
Now the former LaGrange, Ill.,
