For the second week in a row

Only Michigan, Michigan
State, and Northwestern emerg-
ed from this week's battles un-
scathed. Everyone else went
down to defeat, including Ohio
State, which was upset by Colo-
Colorado quarterback Ken
Johnson ran six yards for one
touchdown and Cliff Branch
returned a punt 68 yards for
another to give the Buffaloes a
13-0 halftime lead. The score re-
mained the same until the
fourth quarter when, after the
two quarterbacks traded touch-
down runs, OSU's Don Lamka
threw a 12-yard TD pass to
Rick Middleton. The Buckeyes
were within six points and with
only 2:11 left to play, went for
the onside kick.
Fred Schram kicked off and
Ohio State did recover the ball
but officials ruled that it had
not gone the required ten yards.
"Films show the ball defin-
itely was on the 50," Buckeye
coach Woody Hayes said later.
"I didn't think it was going to
make it, but suddenly it took a
little hop over the line."
In another thriller, Purdue
was nipped by Notre Dame in
the closing minutes, 8-7. The
Boilermakers were trying to
hang onto a 7-0 lead with just
under three minutes left to play.
A snap from center on an at-
tempted punt was low and
Notre Dame defensive end Fred
Swendsen recovered the fumble

A two point conversion fol-
lowed and Notre Dame's unde-
feated record remained intact.
Wisconsin suffered its first
loss of the season to 16th-
ranked Louisiana State 38-28.
The Badgers put up a good
fight rolling up 405 yards
against LSU's usually unrelent-
ing defense. But the Tigers
gained 586 of their own as quar-
terback Paul Lyons ran for
three touchdowns and passed
for another. Wisconsin closed to
within three points at 31-28
with over nine minutes remain-
ing in the game when Rufus
"Roadrunner" Ferguson scored
his second touchdown. But LSU
immediately turned around by
marching 80 yards in 12 plays
to put it out of reach.
The Badgers evened their re-
cord at 1-1-1 after beating Nor-
thern Illinois andn tying Syra-
cuse. Next week they open their
conference schedule in Evans-
ton against Northwestern.
Meanwhile, in Iowa City the
Hawkeyes were demolished by
Penn State 44-14. Franko Har-
ris scored four touchdowns for
the Nittany Lions as he and his
teammates rushed for 459 yards.
Penn State moved up to ninth
plance in the nation.
New coach Frank Lauterbur
had a 23-game winning streak
while at Toledo but is now head-
ing in the other direction. Iowa
has the worst defense in the
Big Ten, giving up 43 points
and almost 500 yards a game.
Illinois also lost its third
consecutive game, but although
the Illini have shown they can
hold the opposition to a respec-
table number of points, they
have a little trouble scoring
their own. So far Illinois has
lost 10-0 to Michigan State, 27-
0 to North Carolina, and Sat-
urday succumbed to Southern
California 28-0. Things can't get
We're number two.. .
... so -what else is new?
THE MICHIGAN WOLVERINES are a bunch of imposters.
After winning their first three games by a collective score of
115-6 theydhave everyone convinced that they are a great team.
But don't make the same mistakes that the polls did. Ac-
cording to their coach Bo Schembechler, the Wolverines are not a
great team. However wait a few weeks before convening the firing
squad because Schembechler didn't say that they won't be great,
just that there are a couple of minor difficulties to work out first.
And every indication points to these problems rapidly disappear-
While Schembechler is still too cautious to predict im-
mortality for his squad, it does seem that he is letting his
guard down a little. He still makes statements like "I don't
look at us as a championship ball club yet", or "We've got to
be better than we are now to be a champion." But he quickly
follows these with "we're making progress" and "we're coming
in the right'direction."
It might pain Michigan's future opponents, but when Bo says
that the Wolverines are going to get better they'd better listen.
About the only comfort which can be offered to those un-
lucky enough to have Michigan on their schedules is that the
Wolverines defense won't be thatmuch better. The defenders just
can't improve their act very much without risking manslaughter
charges and even Schembechler is satisfied with their perform-
ance. "The defense has really come along," he concedes.
In fact about the only defensive problem Schembechler has
right now is what to do with Fred Grambau. Grambau was slated
to start at defensive tackle but was injured during practice and
missed the opener. Sophomore Dave Gallagher stepped in and as
Schembechler admits, "Gallagher has played real well. He's got a
lot of moxie for a sophomore and he's a smart football player.''
Since Grambau can also play middle guard it's not a tragedy
that Gallagher is doing so well, but unfortunately for Grambau
Walt Sexton and Greg Ellis have shown that they don't really
need help in the middle.
So Grambau is temporarily out of a job, but he needn't
worry about playing time. Schembechler plans to use him at
both positions anyway. "Grambau is quick and good," Bo
commented. "Our staff has high regard for him."
The offensive problems aren't all that simple, but at least
one is similar. A one quarterback coach, Schembechler has found
that he has three good ones and ,isn't really sure what to do about
Kevin Casey has led the team to three victories in as many
starts. But the number-two man Tom Slade has looked impres-
sive in his appearances. According to Bo he has "taken the team
in to score every time." Slade hasn't gotten into the games until
they were decided, but this situation could change.
"Slade is a good option quarterback," asserts Schembech-
ler. "He fell behind Casey with tonsilitis and an injury, but
has been improving steadily. We wouldn't be hurt playing with
Slade and there'll come a time when he'll play."
If this isn't enough to put pressure on Casey, Bo is also
pleased with his number three man, Larry Cipa. Cipa has the
strongest arm of the trio, but missed a year with a knee injury
and still has some catching up to do.
For the moment Casey is the man. But he'll have to keep the
team moving better to keep Slade on the bench. Schembechler
wasn't completely pleased with their performance in the third
quarter of Saturday's game. Even though he intended to play
conservatively he feels that the offense could have been more
"We should have gained more yardage against UCLA," he
commented. It made me mad that we didn't get field position in
the third quarter. We should have controlled the ball better."
But Bo isn't really worried about the offense. "Our progress
is good," he states, "and we're starting to move."
He also isn't worried that his team will suffer a let down
against the less than imposing Navy team. "We're not really
worried about Navy," he admits, "our strategy is to be a better
team this week than last week. Navy is a disciplined outfit
and they will hustle and hit, but we'd have to help them to
His only concern about the Navy game is that his starters
probably won't see action in the second half, but if they continue
to improve half as much as he thinks they will they may never
have to play a second half again.
