Glenn Doughty!
It's about time
F OR THE FIRST time in six weeks Glenn Doughty didn't go
to bed nungry on Saturday night.
Don't worry though. It's not that the Den of the Mellow
Men has been short of groceries this season. Doughty's appetite
is for touchdowns, not food, and until yesterday's game he just
didn't get a chance to satisfy it,
While his three touchdown performance against Illinois
doesnt satiate his appetite it'll go a long way to ease the pangs
and Doughty showed it. "I've been waiting for this day for a
long time," he admitted as he lounged in front of his locker
after the game. "I haven't had a piece of the end zone in a long
time and it tasted real good."
After a five week fast it should have. Except for two
aborted attempts at the end of the Michigan State game
Doughty didn't get a good chance to score. In fact, he
rarely got a chance to carry the ball and it clearly bothered
A wingback is supposed to run from scrimmage and catch
passes. But Doughty spent most of his time blocking for Bill
Taylor and while he would be the last person to deny Taylor
his fame Doughty wanted a piece of the action.
After the Navy game he stated that he felt he should carry
the ball about 12 times a game and catch five or six passes. But
in the first five Michigan outings he ran from scrimmage only
18 times and hauled in only nine passes.
"Schembechler used me like a fullback," Doughty com-
plained. "I'm number two fullback. The main thing is for
Michigan to win, but I want to have some kind of part in the
He finally got his chance yesterday and he took it,
rushing for 48 yards, catching for 19 more and scoring three
touchdowns. "Today Ro gave mne a shot," Doughty stated,
"and you can't hesitate when you have a chance."
It was about time, as everyone, including Illinois coach Bob
Blackman was wondering when Doughty would get a chance to
explode. "I can't imagine not using someone like that with
three years of experience and that much quickness," Blackman
stated. "You've got to use him a lot."
Actually Schembechler does use Doughty quite a bit, but
not as a scoring threat. As Glenn is quick to admit, the Michi-
gan offense is 'such that several players could do the scoring.
But someone has to block and Doughty is tjle best offensive
blocker on the team. Taylor calls him "the best blocking back
anywhere" and constantly refers to his great skill in clearing
the way for the runners.
The Wolverines have plenty of runners and receivers, but
blocking backs are hard to find. So Doughty isn't used that
much doing things that others can do. But Schembechler never
forgets that Glenn is an offensive threat. "He's Mr. Versatility
for us," Bo says. "He fits in at many positions."
Doughty knows that his blocking skill is appreciated.
But after starting his first five games at Michigan at tail-
back he can't quite get scoring out of his system. He likes
to hit people so he doesn't mind blocking, but adds that,
"I just want the opportunity to do something with the ball.
I was glad to get the chance against Illinois and I hope it
It may not, so Doughty enjoyed it while he could. As he
entered the endzone for the third time, he turned and waved
to Illinois defender Willie Osley, an old friend from high school
days in Detroit. "I knew he was behind me so I waved," Doughty
He also enjoyed his second touchdown as it represented
revenge for his failure to score against Michigan State. At
State he ran the power off-tackle play twice from the one
without getting in.
This week he also tried twice, but entered the endzone
on the second attempt. There had been a mix up in the block-
ing at State and the team worked on the play during the week.
There were mistakes again this week on the first try but
Schmbechler called it again because, "It failed twice up at
MSU and I'm a stubborn man."
About the only thing that Doughty didn't like about yes-
terday's game was the, way it started. "It reminded me of the
Missouri game in 1969," he said remembering the game opening
horrors. "I thought it was a dream, I just didn't believe it."
But the Wolverines snapped out of their daze before the

end of the first quarter and Doughty entered a more pleasant
dream world at the start of the second as he scored his first
touchdown of the season. Tom Slade hit him at the goal line
in heavy traffic and though Illini defenders were waiting
Doughty forced his way into the endzone with obvious glee.
The game improved for Doughty as he scored his other
touchdowns and he left the field in the fourth quarter ecstat'
"I'm really glad Eo did what he did today," he exclaimed. "I
just hope that it's not just for today only."




Seeing Tom Slade arop back to
pass on the first play of yester-
day's game with Illinois was some-
thing of a surprise to most Mich-
igan fans. But it was nothing
compared to the shock they felt
when Willie Osley picked off the
pass and ran it back to the Mich-
igan. 12 yard line.
For the first time during the
home season, the fans had to wor-
ry about what' the team was do-
ing rather than when they would
get their turn with the Boone's
Their fears of that, moment
were not unfounded. Three plays
Ilater another first occurred as
the Illini scored with little ap-
parent resistance and the Wol-
verines ' were behind. After two
one-yard gains by John Wilson
and George Uremovich, Wilson
swept to the left while Michigan
went to the right and reached the
end zone untouched.
At 1:23 into the first quarter
there appeared to be good cause
for . worry. This concern was
heightened two plays after the en-
sug Ig4ekoff which Harry Banks
had some trouble fielding. Alan
Walker fumbled the pitchout as
he rounded left end and Larry
Huisinga recovered on the Mich-
igan 14 yard line.
The defense was called upon to
prevent the bad dream from be-
coming a recurring ailment.
With luck in the form of a ques-
tionable penalty and a squibbed
field goal attempt -the guardians
of the end zone's sanctity success-
fully suppressed the threat of any
more sacreligious behavior.

Bedalow, who easily wound his
way to the end zone. As Michigan
fans w a t c h e d certain rosy
thoughts became blurred, the of-
ficials cleared the smog with an
ineligible receiver call ;on the
Illini. This brought the ball back
to the Michigan 28 with a second
down and 24 yards to go.
After a substantial gain on the
draw play, Illinois eschewed the
chancy six and went for the safe
three. Wells squibbed this one and
the horrible three minutes were
Regarding the ineligible receiv-
er call, Illinois coach Bob Black-
man said, "It's absolutely ridicu-
lous to call ineligible receiver on a
play like that. They had a man
lined up directly opposite our cen-
ter and he just fired out to block
and missed."
Starting on their own 20,. the
Wolverines moved to midfield be-
fore stalling. On the subsequent
series, the Illini moved well in
their own territory and a pass in-
terference call on Michigan gave
them first and ten on their 49..
It was then, however, that the
Michigan defense reverted to its
usual stinginess.
On the first play they allowed
no gain and on the second, the

Carpenter won the race to the
fumble at the Illinois 37.
Sticking to the ground, the Wol-
verines moved to the 25. On a

and Doughty fell through the de-
fenders on him for his first touch-
down of the season.
Beginning at their own 37 the
next time, and letting the run-
ning game earn this one, the Wol-
verines moved 63 yards in 10
plays. Billy Taylor swept to the
right from the Illinois 11, bounc-
ed off one tackler at the seven,
and went in for the score.
The third quarter featured the
defenses, as the closest either
team came to scoring was a miss-
ed field goal by Michigan. -
Butch Carpenter, whose fum-
ble recovery led to the first Wol-

verine touchdown, provided the
crowd with some more heroics.
fe enlivened an otherwise dull
period by getting Wells for con-
secutive losses totalling 22 yards.
The Wolverines rested them-
selves in the third quarter while
continuing to wear down the Illini
defensive line. They were quite
ready to help Doughty appease his
hunger for the end zone.
With Taylor and Ed Shuttles-
worth providing the running to
keep Illinois honest, Slade passed
twice to Doughty for large gains.
The second pass went to the three
yard line and _it was time to try
the play which didn't work last
week against Michigan State in
the waning seconds.
Doughty went for two on his
first try and then went through
the same spot for his second
Michigan coach Bo Schembec-
ler said regarding Doughty's sec-
ond touchdown, "I ran the play
twice at Michigan State and I'm a
stubborn man. We were going to
run that play twice today."
Doughty, having tasted a little,
still wanted more, and he got it
with help from Bruce Ell#ott's 36
yard punt return to the' Illinois 36
yard line. Doughty went through
the line '-for two, then Fritz Sey-
ferth matched this total to the
32. From there, Doughty took a
pitchout around the left, cut back
after a block from Seyferth on the
27, and then outran the last two
Illini defenders to the endzone.
While Doughty was having a
red-letter day, the rest of the
Wolverines did not appear consist-
ently up to the form which they
and their fans have become ac-
customed to. Schembechler sum-
med up the prevailing attitude.
"It is nice to have a game where
you don't play as well as you can
and still win 35-6." It's very nice,
and helps prevent ulcers.

You can't fool an Ivy Leag-
uer. Illinois head football coach
Bob Blackman, hired away from
Dartmouth last year, was asked
after yesterday's 35-6 defeat to
Michigan if the worst is over
Blackman, whose Illini have
lost six straight games by the
combined score.of 187=30, un-
hesitatingly said, "Nope."
The question was asked be-
cause, of Illinois' six opponents
this year, six were included in
somebody's pre-season top twen-
ty in the nation. The way Illi-
nois'started the seasonit almost
deserved to be ranked out of the
top twenty in the Big Ten.
Nobody realizes as much as
Blackman how horrendous Illi-
nois has looked. Even yesterday,
when Illinois took a quick 6-0

lead, Blackman admitted his
team was lucky.
"We got some breaks early
and we should have capitalized
on two of them and we didn't,"
he said. "When you're playing
a football team that, you know.
is better than you are you have
to have some breaks."
Last year;' Blackman didn't
need any breaks be c a us e his
Dartmouth squad was the better
team each week., The Indians
w h i p p e d thiough their Ivy
schedule and finished as the
14th ranked team xii the coun-
try. In 22 years as a college
coach before this season, Black-
man's teams' had 'won' 150, lost
49 and tied six.
Blackman's Dartmouth teams
were known for their compli-
cated offensive and defensive
systems, and his attempts to
teach them to the Illini were

Late Purdue blitz shocks Northwestern

By The Associated Press
EVANSTON - Otis Armstrong
ran 81 yards for a touchdown
on the second play from scrim-
mage but Purdue had to rally for
two fourth quarter touchdowns
yesterday to deal Northwestern a
21-20 Big Ten football defeat.
Darryl Stingley's 14-yard run
with 1:30 left on the clock a n d
Mike Renie's conversion lifted the
Boilermakers to their third
straight Big Ten triumph in as
many games. Northwestern is now
2-2 in Big Ten play.
Stingley's touchdown jaunt was
set up by a desperation 41-yard

pass by Steve Burke to end Rick
Northwestern went into the
fourth quarter leading 20-7 but
Charlie Potts intercepted Mau-
rie Daigneau's pass and returned
17 yards to the Northwestern 16.
Armstrong and Burke moved the
ball to the one-yard line and Ron
North bulled over for the touch-
Daigneau, however, had a hand
in all three Northwestern touch-
downs. He set up the first score
in the second quarter with a 15-
yard pass to Barry Pearson a n d
three plays later Jim Flash scored
from the two yard line. The extra
point kick failed and Northwest-
ern trailed 7-6.
The next time the Wildcats got
the ball they moved 68 yards for
a touchdown and Daigneau h i t
Pearson with a 15-yard pass to the
one yard line before Al Robinson
crashed over for the touchdown.
A two-point pass play from Daig-
neau to Steve Craig made it 14v-
6 for Northwestern.

MADISON - Roger Jaeger
kicked a 30-yard field goal with
5:15 left yesterday to lift Wis-
consin to a 31-28 victory o v e r
Michigan State in a see-saw Big

Ten football game.
Jaeger's boot-capped a 69-yard
march, sparked by Neil Graff's 39-
yard pass to Tim Klosek, and ruin-
ed a brilliant performance by
Michigan State's Eric The Fle a
Allen ran for touchdowns of 56
and six yards, set up another
score and rushed 21 times f o r
247 yards, 21 short of Clint,
Jones' school record of 268 yards
against Iowa in 1966.
Allen's 44-yard run set up a
three-yard touchdown run by Jim
Bond which pulled Michigan State
into a 28-28 tie- early in t h e
fourth quarter.
It was Wisconsin's second Big
Ten victory against one loss, and
the Badgers improved their over-
all record to 3-2-1. The Spartans,
1-2 in the conference and 2-4 on
the year, played without regular
quarterback Frank Kolch, who,
was left behind with--a knee in-

Bucks ream
Randy Keith scored two touch-
downs and Fred- Schram booted
two field goals yesterday to lead
No. 13 Ohio State to a 27-7 Big
Ten football victory over Indiana.

Quarterback Don Lamka scored
another touchdown as the Buck-
eyes remained unbeaten in con-
ference play with a 3-0 record.
* The -Hoosiers' only score came
early in the third period, when
fullback Ken St. Pierre ran 21
yards through the middle for a
touchdown. An Ohio State fumble
set up the Indiana score.
The Buckeyes scored on- their
first series of downs in the open-
ing 'period, after a -pass interfer-
ence call placed the ball on t h e
Hoosier 24-yard line. Greg Hare,
in at quarterback for O h i o
State, ran the ball to the 15-yard
line and three plays later, w i t h
Lamka back in split end, D i c k
Wakefield took a pass at the
three-yard line.
Keith then took a handoff from
Lamka and ran through the mid-
dle for the touchdown. Schram's
extra point gave the Buckeyes a
7-0 lead.
Gophers golden
IOWA CITY - Minnesota con-
verted a late Iowa fumble into
the deciding touchdown yesterday
to escape with a 19-14 Big Ten
football victory over the winless
and mistake-prone Hawkeyes.
Ernie Cook's one-yard run pro-
vided the go-ahead score with 5:50
to play and' capped a six-play, 28-
yard drive started when Scott Ir-
win recovered a Frank Sunderman
fumble at the Iowa 25. Cook's
touchdown came on a°fourth down
and one-yard play.
The victory left Minnesota 3-3
overall and 2-1 in the conference
and dropped Iowa and new coach

given much of the credit for the
poor record.
Still, it was a relatively com-
plex play that resulted in Illt
nois' only touchdown yesterday.
"That was on a triple forma-
tion," Blackman said, "with
three flankers off to one side."
Halfback John Wilson then took
the ball, ran past the blitzing
Tom., Darden. and scampered un-
molested into the end zone.
"We hadn't used that specific
play this year, although we did
use similar ones," he said.
Mostly, however, Blackman's
style of play has seemed to get
his players, used to a simple
style of football, into trouble.
But Blackman denies that his
players are not as smart as the
ones at Dartmouth, which every-
body knows is the Harvard of
New Hampshire.
"We're used to working with
real intelligent fellows in the Ivy
League, but at Illinois we've got
players who are straight A stu-
dents," he said.
"Being a good football' player
comes'mostly by instinct. Ithink'
things will get better with more
time and experience. Of course,"
he adds, "it helps if you have
backs as big and strong as the
Blackman is a cheerful loser
and it may be because he knows
he can't be blamed since he
wasn't given much to work with.
"Considering our personnel," he
said, "our kids played as well as
they could."
A distinguished, white-haired
man, Blackman looks the part
of an Ivy Leaguer. He doesn't
dress conservatively enough to
be a banker, but he might be
mistaken for a successful insur-
ance broker-or even a 'friendly
Ivy League college president..
Pretty soon, Blackman hopes
to be a friendly Big Ten cham-
pion football coach. His team is
young, and Blackman is obvi-
ously building for the future, a
task made difficult by Illinois'
"I can't imagine anybody try-
ing to build with such a tough
schedule," Michigan coach Bo
Schembechler said after the
Building is a slow process, and
Blackman must be a patient
man, for he is surely sacrificing
present victories. At least, Mich-
Igan defensive end Butch Car-

penter thinks so. "If they would
quit making m 1rst a k e s, they
would be a mutl jbetter team,"
Carpenter said.. ".Their coach has
got them using too many forma-
The complex Illirii formations
-48 of them exist-did not fool
Michigan very much yesterday-
"-We knew before the game that
they had 48 formations, but they
used' the same plays with each
of them," Carpenter' said.
"They d d most of the stuff we
were practicing for this week,"
his teammate Tom D a r d e n
added. '
.But, apparently for Blackman,
instilled with' traditional New
England virtues, the important
thing is not' whether you execute
properly, but how you play the
"Much as I hate to lose," he
said, "I don't mind losing when
the players go all out during the
whole game. They must be able
to keep their self-respect and I
think in the last two weeks our
boys have tried all the way."
All the way means right down
to the final gun, even when your
team is losing by 29 points. As
the clock ticked off the last sec-
onds of yesterday's game, the
pla yer s on Illinois' -bench
watched as their teammates
tried to down a punt before it
bounced into the Miqhigan end
Whether the punt became a
touchback or not meant nothing,
but the Illini didn't care. They
screamed encouragement to their
speeding teammates' s t as
though the game were in the
Blackman has ahvays been that
competitive- When he first came
to Illinois, people predicted Big
Ten pressure would quicl-y make
him homesick for New England.
Blackman disagrees.
Some people say preparing
for Ohio State or Michigan is
just' a whole new world, but at
Dartmouth, when we prepared
for Princeton or Yale or Har-
vard we would practice just as
hard. The only thing is that in
the Big 'IDen the material is bet-
Especially at Michigan. "They
h a v e tremendous quickness,"
Blackman said of the Wolver-
ines. "It's hard to imagine a
team with more size and speed."
Blackman should know. He's a
Dartmouth man.
