"Without a good pass rush," said
Jolly, "the defensive backs are the ones
who get criticized."
Discounting the Michigan State
game, Michigan's opposition had com-
pleted 64 passes in 137 attempts for just
623 yards. Comparatively, not including
MSU, the Wolverines have completed
47 of 97 for 787 yards.
Defensive co-ordinator Bill McCar-
tney feels the Wolverines have im-

proved .both their pass rush and run
defense in the three games since MSU.
The reason for improvement is partly
due to switching Greer from short-side
tackle to wide-side tackle. "At different
times in the season he demonstrated his
abilities," McCartney said. "Against
Iowa was the first time Greer realized
all of his potential in one game."
For his efforts Greer was named
Defensive Hustler of the Week. The
senior from Detroit is third on the team
in tackles (only fitting for a tackle) and
leads the squad in tackles for losses.
Not very hefty for a lineman, Greer
relies on his speed and quickness. He
claims to run the 100 in a shade under 10
Most of the linemen that square off in
front of Greer are bigger and bulkier
but Greer doesn't faze easily.
"It doesn't matter how big," Greer
said, "I just use my quickness and
speed to make plays."
"Greer's forte," explained McCar-
tney, "is the ability to beat the blocker
The offensive tackles for North-
western with which Greer will duel
Saturday are just slightly larger than
he, and the NU offense as a whole is not
expected to move on Michigan.

Greer is not as psyched for the Wild-
cats as he is on winning the next three
games, which obviously includes this
week. "I can't imagine going to any
other bowl than the Rose Bowl," Greer
said. "We have three ballgames left
and if we win those three games we go
Of course, standing between
Michigan and Pasadena is Purdue. The
Boilermakers have a solid club led by
throwing quarterback Mark Herrmann
and a stingy defense.
"I think we've done an extremely
good job putting pressure on quarter-
backs," Greer analyzed. "Our secon-
dary is among the better secondaries
since I've been here. Our goal is to win
the Big Ten, and the biggest game right
now is Purdue. We played Purdue very
well last year and they threw a lot."
And if this season doesn't culminate
in a Rose Bowl trip, there's still the
possibility of a post-season bonanza for
Greer next year. Thanks to a retroac-
tive. NCAA rule instituted this year,
players like Greer who didn't play
freshman year can gain a fifth year of
eligibility. Greer has expressed an in-
terest in playing here one more year,
and Bo should be more than happy to
have him around for one more season.

Simpk ins named Big
Ten player of wee
CHICAGO (AP)-Line backer Ron Simpkins, one of Michigan's most
consistent performers, has been named Big Ten Player of the Week by the
Associated Press for his performance in Saturday's 34-0 victory over Iowa.
Simpkins, a 6-1, 215-pound junior from Detroit, had 14 tackles, including 11
solos and two for losses totaling 15 yards. Simpkins also recovered a fumble and
led a Michigan defense which limited Iowa to a mere 4 net yards rushing.
"He continues to be of the most consistent players in the country week in and
week out," said Michigan Coach Bo Schembechler, who insists the team that plays
the best defense will win the Big Ten championship this year.
Others nominated for the honor included Vince Skillings of Ohio State, Kenna
Turner of Purdue and Joe Norman of Indiana.
Skillings intercepted two passes and returned one 61 yards for a touchdown in
Ohio State's 49-14 triumph over Wisconsin.
Turner, playing only half the game, had six tackles but four of them were for
losses totaling 25 yards in a 31-0 rout of Northwestern and Norman had 21 tackles
including 16 solos and a recovered fumble in a 32-31 loss to Minnesota.

UM Clericals
Union Democracy Makes the Difference
VOTE "YES" for OCC November 13-17
Many clericals have had or heard about bad experiences with unions. The picture is usually the
same: a small group of high-paid union officials, isolated from the membership, run the union in
their own interests. Even so, almost without exception, unionized workers have better wages,
benefits and working conditions than non-unionized workers in comparable jobs.
"Better than nothing" is not good enough, however. How can our new union represent our in-
terests better than t e average, bureaucratized union? Under the OCC's proposed bylaws, union
democracy is the difference.
According to the proposed bylaws:
" the membership is the highest authority of the union
" the membership decides the key issues at regular monthly meetings
and special meetings as needed
" all union representatives are elected annually and subject to
recall at any time.
" the four paid officers earn no more than clerical wages and work
as clericals half-time.

"Well friend, did you make your
picks yet?" asked John Doe.
"You mean, did I make my Michigan
Daily Gridde Picks," said Richard Roe.
"Heck, I got those done long ago. I wan-
ted to make sure they got to the Daily
(420 Maynard) before midnight Friday
to be eligible for the small, two-item
Pizza Bob pizza."
"I only meant," siged Doe dearly,
"did you vote?"
