THE MICHIGAN DAILY - ROSE BOWL SUPPLEMENT

Defens(
(Continued from Page 7)
While Michigan's rushers con-
tinued to move at will the pass-
ing inefficiency was beginning
to cause worries. Schembechler
experimented with Casey, Tom
Slade, and Larry Cipa against
the Midshipmen and Slade was
the most impresive, hiting on
four of seven passes and mov-
ing the team well.
So, with the Big Ten season
opening up again at Michigan
State in a battle where b o t h
coachs always like to spring a
few surprises, Schembechler de-
cided to switch to Slade after
finally revealing that Casey
had been injured all season.
However, D u f f y Daugherty
had a few surprises of his own
for Michigan as his team opened
the nationally-televised grudge
match operating out of a wish-
bone formation.
Slade didn't fare much bet-
ter than Casey with his passing,
hitting only three of nine, but
he executed the option success-
fully and moved the Wolverines
in for two key fourth quarter
scores in icing the hard-fought
24-13 triumph.
The wishbone didn't really
perturb the defensemen who
expected "that the Spartans
would try something new." The
188 total yards gained by MSU
included only 59 on the ground
as the Michigan defenders suc-

mauls

hapless

opponents

cesfully contained the Spartan
flea, Eric Allen.
A f t e r that Michigan came
home again for another patsy,
Illinois, and despite some first
period mistakes, overwhelmed
the Illini 35-6.
Slade's first pass of the game,
on the opening play of the game
was intercepted by the Illini
and Michigan was trailing 6-0
three plays later.
But the Illini lead was short-
lived as Michigan opened up a
21-6 halftime advantage and
coasted in with the win. Again
the defense excelled, limiting
Illinois to 83 total yards and
Glenn Doughty made his first
significant offensive contribution,
scoring three touchdowns, his
first of the season and rushing
for 48 yards.
The next weekend in Minne-
sota Michigan met a new threat
-the forward pass. The Goph-
ers' Craig Curry pierced the
Wolverine defense for 193 pass-
ing yards but managed only one
score on a 73 yard bomb to
to flanker George Honza. That
second quarter score tied the
game at 7-7 but Michigan ral-
lied for a 35-7 win. Taylor
ground out 168 yards in 33 gal-
lops against the grounded Go-
phers and surpassed Ron John-
son's Michigan career rushing
mark.
But, the passing attack again

fell flat. Slade and Larry Cipa
combined for only two comple-
tions in ten attempts, but what
can be better than a 35-7 con-
ference win anyway?
Maybe a 61-7 pasting of In-
diana or a 63-7 devastation of
the Iowa Hawkeyes. Neither of
those games produced much ex-
citement and even the scores,
Michigan's highest- in 23 years
seemed insignificant after earli-
er 56-0 wins.
The yards came easy against
both of the I's as Michigan net-
ted 489 of them against Indiana
and 559 against Iowa. Each
game included only three com-
pleted passes but why pass when
you have backs like Taylor who
ripped off 172 yards in 11 car-
ries against Indiana, Ed Shut-
tlesworth who averaged seven
per romp while netting 112
against Iowa, and reserve Alan
Walker who totaled 185 in the
two games.
After that pair of b o r i n g
romps, Michigan fans were ra-
ther unprepared for the gruel-
ing nail-biter against Purdue
the next week. No 500 yards of
offensive totals, or 50 yard de-
fensive performances highlight-
ed that game and most of the
second string never even got
into the game.
But Slade finally proved he
could pass and Schembechler
found a way for Michigan to

move without an effective Tay-
lor leading the way.
Purdue even managed to score
two touchdowns and 17 points
against the Wolverines and the
game wasn't decided until Dana
Coin kicked a 25 yard field goal
with 45 seconds left to save the
Wolverine's unbeaten s e a s o n
with a 20-17 win.
That set - the stage for the
Wolverines' annual blood match
with Woody's boys from Colum-
bus. Although the Buckeyes had
registered two consecutive loss-
es and numerous major injuries

no one was surprised by the
tough battle they gave Michigan.
Defenses and fumbles prevail-
ed as Michigan led at halftime
3-0 behind another crucial Coin
field goal. A Michigan shutout
still seemed quite possible until
Tom Campana broke loose on
punt return and scooted 85 yards
for a Buckeye touchdown mid-
way through the third quarter.
The defenses then went back to
work, stifling any offensive ex-
plosions and Michigan still trail-
ed, 7-3, when the Wolverines
(See MICHIGAN, Page 14)

RECORDS AND opposing defensive linemen crumbled before
the hun-like Michigan offense this season. Powered by the
bullish bulldozing of Billy Taylor and the slamming sledge ham-
mer known as Easy Ed Shuttlesworth, the Wolverines set a
plethora of records such as points scored (409) and total yards
(4397).
At first the Wolverine dynamo was headed by the neophyte
Kevin Casey, but within a few games, he had been ousted by
another precocious sophomore, Tom Slade, and it was the cu-
cumber cool Slade who led the power-laden offense through
the balance of the near perfect schedule.
In the Wolverines' finest hour, however, it was rarely used
Larry Cipa who sprinted off the bench to take over from the
fallen Slade and direct the faltering offense to a game winning
score against the hated Ohio State Buckeyes.
During the course of the banner year Taylor eclipsed the
Michigan three season rushing mark previously held by Ron
Johnson. Fittingly, it was Johnson who had given Taylor the
pair of blue suede football shoes which carried him so effort-
lessly past pursuing defenders.
The platinum toe of place kicker Dana Coin also left its
print in the Grauman's Chinese Theatre cement of gridiron
history. Coin converted on every one of his 54 extra point at-
tempts over the 1971 campaign to establish a new NCAA mark.
Long overshadowed by the stalwart Michigan defense, the
Wolverine offense this year came to life and blossomed into
a prolific scoring machine, running up totals of 56. 61, and
63 points,
