Lean, Hungry Spartans Face Badgers

Season Statistics Explain
Michigan's Ninth Place Spot


the team with nine returns for 139
Lewis leads in kickoff returns
with five for 112 yards.
Lewis leads State's scorers with
five touchdowns and 30 points.
Lewis is tied with Lou Bobich
and Dick Gordon in pass intercep-
tions with three.
Sets Records
Lewis set an MSU record on an
88-yard pass play on which he and
quarterback Steve Juday collabor-
ated in the Southern Cal game.
Against Northwestern Lewis scor-
ed both of State's touchdowns, and
his 86-yard dash erased a for-
mer Spartan record for longest
run from scrimmage by a State
player in Big Ten play.
And Sherm is only 5'8" and 152
pounds (that's before the games--
sometimes he gets down to 146).
If by any chance Michigan State
should gain more momentum and
cop a Big Ten title this fall, it
would be a crowning glory to jus-
tice. In the past few years Daugh-
erty has fielded some tremendous

teams, full of depth, talent, and
weight, and each year State fans
expect a close State bid for the ti-
tle--only to watch Purdue and a
few other local squads upset the
mighty Spartans and cool off any
Rose Bowl hopes.
After last year's 5-4 perform-
ance by what many considered to
be potentially State's best team in
ten years, the people around East
Lansing began looking for Daugh-
erty's scalp. There were rumors
that Duffy would leave at the end
of this year, with perhaps a Notre
Dame job in the offing.
So what happens? Last week, as
Daugherty's unheralded, dminu-
tive, and unexpected Spartans be-
gan to show that there may be
some hope for a what was suppos-
ed to be a lean year, Michigan
State awarded Daugherty a five-
year coaching contract.
Tomorrow's a big day in East
Lansing, and the people around
those parts, well, they're waiting to
see if State can continue to play
better than they look.

Like them or not, the latest{
Michigan football statistics clear-
ly reveal why the team is current-
ly mired in ninth place in Big Ten
In conference games, the Wol-
verines rank ninth in total of-
fense, with only Minnesota below
them, and fourth in total defense.
Bright spots for Michigan in-
clude fullback Mel Anthony, eighth
in rushing; quarterback Bob Tim-
berlake, ninth in passing, seventh
in total offense, and sixth in scor-
ing; and halfback Jack Clancy,
fifth in both kickoff and punt re-
By picking up 82 yards against
Minnesota, Anthony increased his
ground total to 153 yards, for
a 4.0 average. Tom Nowatzke, In-
diana fullback, leads the Big Ten
with 224 yards, an average of 4.1
per carry.
Timberlake completed eight of
14 passes against the Gophers,.
thereby jumping past Bob Chan-
dler and Frosty Evashevski in the

quarterback derby. For the season,
Timberlake has connected 18
times, Chandler 16 times, and Eva-
shevski 12 times.
Totals show that Coach Bump
Elliott has employed no less than
15 runners as he attempts to im-
prove the Michigan ground at-
tack. Of those 15, Joe O'Donnell's
50-yard fake punt touchdown run
keeps him tops in average, al-
though Rindfuss leads regulars
with a 4.4 mark,
Comparing Michigan statistics
to Northwestern's shows that the
Wolverine defense should have a
tough battle against the Wildcat
offense. Northwestern's offense
tops Michigan's in every category
but punt returns. If the Wolver-
ines have trouble with quarter-
back Tom Myers' passing, it will
probably be because although
Michigan's rushing defense is su-
perior, its passing defense lags,
and Myers tops the Big Ten in
total yardage even though he
sports a net minus 73 yards run-


Daily Plans Union Humiliation

~BIRMINGHAM (IP)--A federal fI+t.r a 1v +4-c em ywa

If the Union Undesirables show up this afternoon it will be an
unprecedented fourth straight time they have come to the Bier Bowl.
The Michigan Daily again fields a powerhouse in their attempt
to win back the coveted Little Brown Wastebasket, symbol of Daily
supremacy in a long (three years) and glorious (1-2, actually 1-1-1)
series. The fear and terror which this year's Magnificent Seven
strikes into the hearts of its rivals is best exhibited by a convincing
12-6 triumph over the self-proclaimed Maynard Street Champions,
the Michigan-Densian.
That the first-string Cheetahs will be fired up for the 4 p.m.
game goes without saying. Coach Dave "Thin Man" Good himself
didn't say, "Last year's win was in the basket, but then you can
hardly expect our guys to beat nine-seven Union players plus two
Union refs."
Coach Good was asked to specify just what the Union could
expect from The Daily. "Well, to be completely honest yet precise,
dust. We'll run through them and then throw over them. We have
a squad of veterans plus -just enough newcomers to really keep us
moving. Why, we're three deep at every position. You should have
seen them yesterday, all 27 going after that fumble.
A gallop poll was taken ("The Trotter" Rowland hits people
on the head and then runs). The results were unanimous, but we
forgot who was favored. Phil Sutin, named trainer becuse of his
concerns, picked The Daily, but he refused to be quoted. Of course
we complied.
The Cheetah backfield will be Tom Rowland, Bob "The Zephyr"
Zwinck, and Stan "Ollie Fran" Kukla. Fearless Ron Wilton will be
flanker back. Gerry "Goodheart" Storch and Bill "Bullheaded" Bull-
ard are at end. The Union will fall, after all.


through hell...

... and high water


HALLOWEEN'S OVER-But this big bad Union Jock is scared
stiff reviewing illegally-produced movies of a recent Daily
practice. "Sharp, crisp blocking can bring. down even the biggest
hulk," screams Coach Dave Good daily at The Daily, "like a
hundred pounds of clay."

THE CHARGER-An unidentified Daily interior lineman demon-
strates the proper stance when on defense. Although this is one
of the fundamentals on which The Daily is drilled, he can
expect very limited action in the Bier Bowl this afternoon as the
Union will have the ball for very few offensive plays.
