facing at Michigan. Presently,7
there are four qualified candidatesi
battling for the position only one
will grasp come September 16.
With this spring's workouts rap-
idly coming to a close, the identi-
ty of the number one candidate isf
still deeply hidden.!
Incumbent Tom Slade is by no1
means assured of retaining the job:
he held for the biggest portion of
the 1971 season. Junior Kevin

play the diversified role of a Mich-
igan quarterback. At manyother
schools passing is the most im-
portant strength a quarterback is
required to exhibit. But the Wol-
verines' option offense requires an
equally efficient runner. "I'm look-
ing for the best combination of the
two (running and passing)," as-
serts Schembechler. And that's
only where his problems begin.
All of the candidates have defi-

boy magazine "Sophomore All-
America," Casey played the first
four games last year with a "par-
tial shoulder separation" before
he was benched just prior to the
Michigan State game. "I feel real!
good," Casey enthusiastically re-I
ports, "but my main objective is
to build up my strength over the
summer."
Schembechler originally planned
to have Cipa groomed and ready
after Don Moorhead headed for
the British Columbia Lions of the
Canadian Football League. But
Cipa was forced to sit out the en-
tire 1970 season recovering from
knee surgery. So the quarterback
race was wide open last year with
a plethora of inexperienced can-
didates.
Cipa got back into the race mid-
way through last season and dra-
matically drove the Wolverines to
paydirt in the final minutes
against Ohio State giving Michi-
gan a 10-7 victory over the Buck-
eyes.
His knee problem is now in the
past and Cipa should be ready for
his senior year. Despite his strong

stuff," admits Franklin, "and I'm
just thinking too much."
Schembechler has hinted that
there is very little difference be-
tween the running games of the
four candidates. "They're all pret-
ty quick," asserts - Schembechler
emphasizing that even Cipa can
run the forty in 4.8.
What may indeed tell the dif-
ference are the factors that the
common fan fails to acknowledge.
The quarterbacks' abilities at
reading defenses, using correct
judgement on the options, and
overall confidence will all un-
doubtedly enter Schembechler's
mind when his final decision is
made prior to the opener with
Northwestern.
Casey figures that whoever the
coaches have the most confidence
in will get the job. Cipa echoes the
claim saying that the one who
"doesn't make the big mistake"
will get the starting assignment.
Both Slade and Franklin see the
most consistent player winning the
battle while Schembechler is not
quite sure what the final decision
will hinge on.
