"I

on this and that
A lIot of e motion,
a bit of trivia
eric siegel)
BENNIE OOSTERBAAN, a three-time Michigan All-American
and a Wolverine coach for 10 years, still remembers his first
opening game as an inexperienced rookie end back in the 1920's.
"I wasn't starting, I was just a first substitute," Oosterbaan
said earlier this week. "But emotionally, I was as high as I
could be. I was really aroused. You always feel that way to a
degree before any game; but I think the feeling is a little strong-
er before the first game of the season."
There have been more than four decades worth of open-
ing games since Oosterbaan first took the field, but the
emotional tension surrounding the first game hasn't chang-
ed miCtch. The coaches, the players - old and new - and
even the fans can feel the tension building up.
Even without a schedule, it was obvious that something, was
in the offing from the practice sessions at Ferry Field this week.
Coach Bo Schembechler, who had left a large portion of the
onthe-field high-decibel directives to his assistants for the first
few weeks of practice, took over the bulk of the verbalizing this
week. And the players were hitting harder and with more spirit
than at any time before.
And it was obvious from some of the coach's state-
ments, too. Doubts and questions, with an occasional touch
of cautious optimism, set the tone for the week. The other
team was tough, talented and underrated; your's was good,-
too, butt there were a couple of injuries, and inexperience at
some key positions.
-"You worry before every game, but you worry a little more
before the first game," Schembechler said after Tuesday's prac-
tice. "One reason is that a coach knows his team's weaknesses
better than anyone else, and you never. know how those weak-
nesses are going to show up until the first game.
"You know guys like Moorhead and Dierdorf and Huff and
Hill are going to go out there and do the job for you," he con-
tinued. "But with some of the newer people, you never know
until you go out there."
An opening game orten sets the tone for the entire season,
as it did last year when Michigan beat Vanderbilt 42-14 as
quarterback Don Moorhead and halfback Glenn Doughty, pre-
season question marks, each gained well over 100 yards and ac-
counted for three touchdowns between them, but that isn't al-
ways the case.
In 1967, Michigan beat Duke in the opener 10-7 for its
499th victory, and the champagne bottles were brought out in
blissful anticipation of the magic "500." The bottles weren't
k opened until November, and the team,finished four and six. Two
years ago, a talented Michigan team with Ron Johnson and
Denny Brown was manhandled in its opener with California,
21-7, in what looked like the start of a long season. The Wol-
verines didn't lose again until they .met the number one team
in the country in the final game of the season.
Still, in its 73 winning season, the Wolverines won
their opening game 66 times. And every time they've won
the conference championship, the Wolverines have won
-their first game.
The trivia material connected with opening games is more
than abundant. Michigan's overall first game record is 73-14-3.
Of those 73 wins, 52 were shutouts, the latest being againgst
Oregon State in 1966.
Then there is the story about the Michigan freshman who
was so impressed with the pre-season pronouncementsabout the
1947 Wolverines that he said before the opener with Michigan
State that he wasn't disappointed in having end-zone seats.
"Michigan will be in scoring position so often that I'll
have the best seats in the house - at least for half the
game," he told a Daily reporter.
The Wolverines "won, 55-0, for opening game shutout
number 48.

By ELLIOT LEGOW
'No coach is ever ready for an
opening game. There are so many
things we know we can do better,
but there's no way to do it except
to go out and play."
Don't be distressed by Michigan
football Coach Bo Schembechler's
comments about the opening game
of the football season against
Arizona today, however. No coach
wants to sound over-optimistic
before his first game and no coach
ever is completely satisfied with
his team's progress.
But when the Wolverines take
to the Tartan Turf of Michigan
Stadium for the first time this
season they will be heavily favor-
ed to best Arizona's Wildcats in

Arizona has some problems on

soothes some of these difficulties.
The strength of Arizona's de-

THIS IS the first meeting ever
between Arizona a n d Michigan
and the Wildcat's appear awed by
their journey into Big Ten coun-

"one of the five or six toughest

Michigan Stadium frightens the
Wildcats almost as much as does

They will have quite a job cut

in trying to stop Michigan's var-

Don Moorhead who Weber terms,
"the best triple option quarter-
