Home football, Fuller Field?

If you were to ask Karol Krotki
where the football action is on
Saturday afternoons in Ann Ar-
bor, he might surprise you by say-
ing Fuller Field, a far cry from
massive Michigan Stadium.
Krotki is the organizer of soc-
cer, better known as football by
the rest of the world, at Michi-
gan this year. His soccer club,
currently with a membership of
30, plays its home games on

Michigan State Coach Duffy
Daugherty called the Spartan's
game against Michigan Saturday
"the most important game on our
schedule" and ordered strict se-
curity yesterday to insure secret
practices for his football team
for the remainder of the week.
Although Michigan ranks as a
two-touchdown favorite in most
corners, Associated Press football
writer Will Grimsley looks for an
upset. His pick:
"Michigan State 10, Michigan
7: The Wolverines have all the
horses, the Spartans have all the
desire. The underdogs throttle
Michigan's touchdown parade."
Daugherty is not commenting
on his offensive or defensive
plans or any possible changes in
In the last day of contact
work yesterday, Daugherty had
the Spartans working on the
kicking game in particular with
Borys Shlapak handling the kick-
offs and field goals and Bill
Simpson the punting.
Daugherty said that Shlapak
"is certainly a great weapon,
having a range up to 60 yards."
He holds MSU's record with a
54-year field goal against North-
western last year.
,Asked if the coaches were try-
ing to fire the players up, Duffy
said: "They know the importance
of the game. It means supremacy
in your own state."
Commenting on Michigan's
three quarterbacks, Duffy said,
"They're all good quarterbacks
and hopefully we will be prepar-
ed for all of them."
Ron Joseph, defensive tackle,
said of the MSU team: "Just like
a machine, sometimes it sput-
ters, but our machines have been
greased and I think we are go-
ing to click this week."
Michigan Coach Bo Schem-
bechler sent his Wolverines
through a two-hour, spectators-
barred drill yesterday, too.
Schembechler is making him-
self inaccessible to newsmen, but
"MSU is bigger and stronger
than any team we have played so
far, and probably is bigger and
stronger than any team we'll meet
for the rest of the year."
Yesterday's practice was the
final heavy one scheduled, in
preparation for Michigan State,
and Schembechler was believed to
be working on "surprise plays"
such as the end-around he sprung
on Northwestern, scoring once
and gaining 43 yards in three at-

The Michigan Rugby Football
Club will travel to East Lansing
to battle with the MSU Spartans
Relatively speaking, the Spar-
tans play a considerably lower
quality of rugby than Michigan's
opponents from the last two
weeks - Toronto and Chicago.
Nevertheless, the Spartans will
have several factors working in
First, State hustles. They also
hit hard, although they're lack-
ing in finesse.
Second, Michigan has tended in
the. past to play the way the op-
position does. For example, when
the other team has been sloppy in
its passing or coverage, Michi-
gan has had the inclination to let
up and lose the advantage.
Third, State hasn't won against
Michigan in the past two years.
Thus, the Spartans will be up for
the game. A home field advan-
tage along with the thought of
