"They (Michigan) played very
poorly tonight-their team could
have been the reason."
Thus a dejected Al Renfrew tried
to put as bright a picture as pos-
sible on what had to have been
one of the Wolverines worst per-
formances of the year. The final
tally was 5-1, Wisconsin, and that
was a good indication of difference

Gary Ernst provided most of the
match's excitement when he pin-
ned his Wisconsin heavyweight
counterpart, Randy Frokjer, in
1:16. Ernst fired out quickly and
garnered a takedown in the first
twenty seconds. After that it was
just a matter of time before Ernst
recorded the fall.
Jim Brown and Bill Davids did
just what was expected of them,
both recording lopside superior
decision victories. Brown came
within an inch of pinning Badger
Jeff Saggau in the first period and
had him on the ropes throughout
the match in chalking up a 15-1
triumph. Davids too was in con-
trol all of the way, coming closest
to pinning Larry Gonzalez in the
waning seconds of their bout.
Lon Harris almost preceded
Ernst's pin with one of his own.
In the first thirty seconds, he
gained a takedown and a near fall
that came only on eyelash from

Wisconsin's Joe Wade until the
final minute of the match. Har-

racking up two more takedowns
to push the final t.o 11-2.
The Big Ten's- runner-up 177
pounder from last season, Pete
Leiskau of Wisconsin, turned in
one of the Badgers two wins by
taking Michigan freshman Dave
Curby 4-0.
Wolverine Rick Neff nearly
captured a third straight super-
ior decision victory when he
downed Dale Spies 11-6 at 134'
lbs. Realizing he had 4 chance
for a superior decision, Neff made
some bold moves in the third per-
iod which backfired. Normally
he would not have taken such
risks, but with the chance of gain-
ing an extra match t point they
were well worth the risk.
Bill Schuck and Mitch Men-
drygal rounded out the con-
quest of Wisconsin with impres-
sive 7-1 and 3-0 wins.
Michigan coachsRick Bay was
particularly pleased with Hub-
bard's win. As he put it, "Jerry
needed a victory tonight to have
any chance of gaining the seed
he deserves in the Big Ten meet
next Saturday."
Bay was very pleased with the
ovarell performance of his squad
in what he called "a vast im-
provement over last Saturday's
match at Michigan State." He
also claimed that "had we wrest-
led, this well last weekend, we
would have given Michigan State
a much better contest."

The 44 points were the most

The Floridians hit 51 per cent
