The Michigan football team
is lucky that dreams don't last
very long. Because if they did,
Illinois could have won last
Saturday's game,
As the contest opened, it ap-
peared that the Wolverines were
in the middle of a terrible
nightmare. It seemed impos-
sible that they could make that
many mistakes that quick, but
after the first five minutes the
Illini led by six points and it
should have been by 14 points.
"I couldn't believe the start
of that game," remembered
coach Bo Schembechler. "It
couldn't have been worse. You
couldn't believe our first five
plays.
In those five plays Michi-
gan gained but three yards and
turned the ball over twice. Tom
Slade threw an interception on
the first play of the game and

The Wolverines got the ball
back after Illinois' touchdown.
But bad dreams end as quick-
ly as the good ones and the
Wolverines rapidly recovered
enough to easily defeat Illinois
35-6. When the final stats were
in Michigan had gained 355
yards and given up only 83. The
only defensive flaw in the per-
formance was the lone Illini
score after the interception, and
it really wasn't anybody's fault.

MIKE KELLER (90) and FRED GRAMBAU (92) combine to haul down Illinois quarterback Mike

week.
BUT WHICH ONE?
Big 8 claim*-s topteam

When the n a t i o n a 11 y second
ranked team trounces the fifth
rated team, it can usually make a
strong case for being ranked num-
ber one.'
But Oklahoma, in that position
after defeating Colorado 45-17 Sat-
urday, can't even convince every-
one it's the best team in its own
conference.'
Nebraska, defending national
champion and tied for the Big 8
lead with Oklahoma, beat Kansas
55-0 and, despite the performance
of the Sooners, remained the top
team in the country in the eyes
of many observers. "We certainly
helped Nebraska's cause," Kansas
coach Don Fambrough said..
What does a coach have to say
after winning 55-0? How about
complaining about the officiating?
Few will believe Nebraska tnentor
Bob Devaney, but he thought the
officiating was so bad he threat-
ened to complain to conference
officials.
Devaney's other complaint, be-
lieve it or not, was that his team
didn't score enough. "I don't feel
it was one of our best offensive
days," he Aaid of his squad which
gained a paltry 532 yards. "We
were presented with scoring oppor-
tunities on numerous occasions,
and we do like to see the team
take advantage of all scoring op-
portunities."
Devaney may have been silently
comparing his team with Okla-
homa, which gained 670 yards, 498
4of them on the ground. The 172
in the air came on but four com-
pletions out of five attempts by
Wishbone-T sparkplug Jack Mil-
dren.
The coach of previously 'unde-

feated Colorado, Eddie Crowder,
said Mildren was the key to the
Sooner attack. "He is doing a
superb job with the option game."
Especially when he gives the ball
to the sensational Greg Pruitt.
The junior flash ran for 190 yards
and two touchdowns on 14 carries.
Mildren knows that Pruitt can
do it.
Both Devaney and Sooner coach
Chuck Fairbanks claim their mnds
are on other things-like their
battle royal scheduled for Thanks-
giving-but bowl officials are said
to be swarming the two campuses
like boll weevils around cotton or
flies around sugar.
While the Big 8 tries to decide
who's the nation's top team, others
are wondering who the top quor-
terback is. Washington's Sonny
Sixkiller, the morning line favo-
rite, faltered for the second
straight week Saturday, going 12
for 31 while (leading the Huskies
down the rose strewn pass away
from Pasadena.
But, while Washington wvas los-
ing 23-21 to Oregon. Auburn's Pat
Sullivan was showing some of his
own quarterback skills. Sullivan
threw for 25 of 34 including 15
straight completions in the second
half while leading the Tigers to a
come - from - behind victory over
Georgia Tech, 31-14.
Auburn, now 5-0, is another
school hoping to extend its ,eason
into the New Year.
So is Stanford, which has been
showing how much the loss of Jim
Plunkett (as in Heisman) has hurt.
Led by quarterback Don Bunce,
the Indians stomped to their third
Pacific 8evictory without a loss,
33-18, over Southern California,

now a loser for the third straight
week.
Other leading teams also con-
tinued their way to a hopefully
sugary holiday season. Penn State,
Notre Dame, Alabama and Geor-
gia all remained unbeaten. Ala-
bama, with the best team Bear.
Bryant has borne in years, was
expected to have the toughest time,
but the Crimson Tide left tough
Tennessee red-faced.
Alabama gained 283 yards but
was penalized 105 in defeating the
Vols, 32-15. Bryant said his team
made too many penalty mistakes
for his players to be thinking of
being number one. The polls will
probably agree.

KANSAS CITY OP)-Sore-armed
Len Dawson zeroed in on Otis
Taylor in a spectacular aerial dis-
play and the Kansas City Chiefs
erased a 9-0 deficit with four sec-
ond-quarter touchdowns for a 38-
16 victory over the Pittsburgh
Steelers last night in a nationally
televised American Football Con-
ference game.
Stenerud kicked an 11-yard field
goal early in the fourth quarter
after that drive broke down.
John Fuqua scored for Pitts-
burgh from the one after a fum-
ble recovery put the Steelers on
the Chiefs' 17.
A penalty and Bradshaw's pass
to Ron Shanklin later put the
ball on the three, but Pittsburgh
could not move it across the goal
line.
Kansas City closed out the scor-
ing on a 32-yard pass interception
by Emmitt Thomas, making the
final score 38-16.
Dawson hurled payoff strikes of
five and 27 yards to the rangy
Taylor and five yards to rookie
Elmo Wright.

Ed Podolak scored the fourth
touchdown on a one-yard run and
Emmitt Thomas added a TD in
the last moments on a 32-yard
pass interception run.
After the big second - quarter
flurry the Chiefs never were able
to do much against the young
Steelers, except for an 11-yard
field goal on the first play of the
final quarter by Jan Stenerud,
who converted after all five touch-
downs and Thomas' theft.
Pittsburgh jumped ahead in the
opening quarter on field goals of
32, 40 and 35 yards by Roy Ger-
ela.
The Steelers didn't score again
until the fourth quarter, when
John Fuqua bolted over from the
one-yard line, ending a 17-yard
drive that took five plays.
Dawson and Taylor were the
main attractions in this struggle
before a rain-dampened crowd of
49,533, but it was the vaunted
Kansas City defense which pro-
vided the momentum for the
Chiefs' triumph, which put them
in a first-place tie with the Oak-
land Raiders in the AFC West.

on a great call," explained
Schembechler. It was third
down and long yardage. They
sent three men out and we ran
the safety blitz figuring on a
pass. Then they ran a reverse
and we've got no one left to stop
the runner."
The Wolverine defense, how-
ever, is upset about the score.
It's not that they think that
they should have stopped it, they
just don't like to give up touch-
downs. "Our defense is mad
that they gave them that touch-
down Schembechler s a i d.
"They always want to be lower,
than Notre Dame in points al-
lowed."
While Schembechler felt that
the defensive performance was
all right, he was not that pleas-
ed with the offense. "We did not
block, we did not execute well,"
Schembechler complained.
However, Jim Coode was an
exception to thescriticism as he
turned in his second straight
high percentage game on offen-
sive line and was named of-
fensive player of the week.
"Coode has been good,"
Schembechler announced. "He's
played better than we expected
and it's been a real pleasant
surprise."
Coode's strong play is all the
more satisfying because he is
not playing above expectations.
Schembechler had high hopes
for him last year, but before
he could play in his first game
he suffered a ruptured appendix
and missed the entire season.
Coode spent a month and a half
in the hospital, lost 50 pounds
and endured two operations be-
fore he could begin to mend. So
the surprise is more that he
could come back and play foot-
ball at all rather than that he
is playing well.
Other offensive performances
were not as consistent. Quarter-
back Tom Slade went five out

of seven for 74 in the passing
department, but one of the two
not completed was intercepted,
setting up the Illinois touch-
down. According to Schembech-
ler, "Slade wasn't quite as good
as he was against Michigan
State. However he made some
good plays and his only prob-
lem in inexperience."
Bill Taylor was the leading
Michigan rusher as usual and
though he didn't start the game,
his injured arm didn't bother
him. "There was no problem
with Taylor's shoulder," Schem-
bechler commented. "He got
through the line just fine."
Glenn Doughty also had a
good day in the scoring column.
According to Schembech-
ler, Doughty's success was dic-
tated by the Illinois defense.

NEW YORK OlP)-Dick Williams
of the Oakland A's, fired two years
ago by Boston because "I was too
mean," was named yesterday as
the Associated Press' Manager of
the Year in the American League.
Williams, who in his first year
as manager of the A's guided them
to a runaway title in the AL West,
received 107 votes in nationwide
balloting by sports writers and
sportscasters.
Bob Lemon of Kansas City fin-
ished second with 66 votes, with
Earl Weaver of Baltimore third
with 59. Chuck Tanner of the Chi-
cago White Sox was fourth with
36 and Billy Martin of the Tigers
fifth with 12.

NIGHT EDITOR:
BILL ALTERMAN
"They forced the pitch," he ex-
plained, "and when you force
the pitch Doughty's going to run
the ball."
There was a lot of talk among
the opposing' players on the
field and Schembechler wasn't
very happy about it. Evidently
the conversations got pretty
heated as Bo Rather almost got
involved in a full scale fight
with, one of the Illini. "There
was too much conversation be-
tween the teams," Schembechler
mentioned. "I don't know what
was said and I don't want to
get involved, but there was too
much provocation. I'm not de-
fending my guys, but I don't
like that kind of stuff."

Give The
Bear a break.
You're the only one who can.
Because all Smokey can do is ask you to help prevent forest fires.
He can't break your matches. Or douse your campfires. Or snuff out
your cigarets.
Only you can.
So, please, lend Smokey a hand.
And maybe while you're at it, lend him your voice too: tell peopleto
give the bear a break.
He deserves it.
So does America. ''"
