Jnpredictable Offense Falters in Gopher LosslI [Gcol 11



"We did just about everything
except get the ball across the goal
line," Coach Bump . Elliott re-
marked in referring to Michigan's
6-0 loss to Minnesota last Satur-
Defense proved to be the differ-
ence for the fourth year in' a row,
as the Gophers refused to give
ground when their end zone was

threatened by a Wolverine thrust.
Two times Michigan drove to the
Gopher seven yard line, but was
unable to crack over.
% The first sustained drive occur-
red in the first quarter, the very
first time Michigan got its hands
on the, ball. Michigan recovered a
Gopher fumble at midfield, march-
ed down to the seven, and watched
as quarterback Bob Timberlake's

field goal attempt strayed wide of
the mark. This was Timberlake's
second three-point attempt this
year and he has missed both. His
first try was during the Michigan
State encounter.
Costly Fumble
Michigan took the second half
kickoff and went right down to
the seven of Minnesota, once
again. On a fourth down play,

Timberlake was unable to crack
the Gopher forward wall. Elliott
commented on that play, "That
certainly was an important play
from our standpoint. It appeared
as though Bob started to lose the
ball just as he hit the line and he
sort of leaned back to grab it. By
that time he had lost most of has
forward momentum." Timberlake
did fumble on that play, but it
made no difference as four downs
had been exhausted.
Timberlake passed for 90 yards,
completing eight of 14 tosses. "Our
passing game was hurt somewhat
by the strong onrushing Minne-
sota line," Elliott remarked. "But
what was hurt especially was our
rollout option pattern. Timberlake,
being a righthanded thrower, has
to rollout to his right, and that
meant going to the side of Minne-
sota's big tackle, Carl Eller. Eller
caught him a few times before, he
even had a chance to do any-
thing," Elliott emphasized.
Wrong Receiver
In the fourth period with Mich-
igan trailing 6-0, the Wolverines
found themselves with a fourth
down and 11 situation at the Min-
nesota 28. Timberlake hit end
John Henderson, but the officials
ruled that Henderson was downed
just inches short of the necessary
first down. Elliott smiled slightly
as he related that play. "The pass
really wasn't even intended for
Henderson. It was supposed to go
to our right halfback Dick Rind-
fuss, but Timberlake overshot him
and Henderson just happened to
be circling behind him at the
Biggest Problem
"Our biggestsproblem so far this
season," Elliott continued, "is that
we haven't really been able to put
together at the same time our
passing and running games. One
seems to jell and then the. other
gives out."
Junior Brian Patchen filled in
at center again for the injured

Tom Cecchini and Elliott was
"very satisfied" with his perform-
ance. Patchen came out of the
game for a while with a slight in-
jury and Jim Green took his spot.
Elliott remarked that he was also
pleased with Green's playing.
A final note on the Minnesota
game centered around halfback
John Clancy who made minus four
yards in only two carries the
whole day. "Jack just had one of
those days," Elliott stated. "The
big problem about that though
was that he was running in the
direction of Eller."
Elliott was pleased with the
team's play even though they lost
the game. "I think the team play-
ed its heart out last Saturday.

HOLD ON THERE-Michigan quarterback Bob Timberlake evades Gopher Bob Bruggers during the
Wolverines 6-0 loss last Saturday. Timberlake completed eight passes in 14 attempts for 90 yards
during the game, but he was unable to hit for the "bomb." The Minnesota line led by Carl Eller
hindered Timberlake most of the day, especially on his rollouts.
