Until October 24, Illinois w a s
just another lousy football team.
On that day coach Jim Valek was
fired, and the Illini have been
raising hell ever since.
The first to feel the wrath of
the team was, then top-ranked
Ohio State. The Illini, who w e r e
stunned before the game by the
news of Valek's dismissal, in turn
stunned the Buckeyes on the field.
Illinois's effort not only knock-
ed the Buckeyes to number two in
in the national rankings, but it
possibly was a factor in Valek's
Valek was rehired for the re-
mainder of the season that same
weekend without, missing a game.

against Notre Dame Friday in

held scoreless the first half, and
did not win the game until Darrell
Robinson scored with one minute
45 seconds left.
"The game brought us a long
way toward becoming a football
team," Valek said. "Until Purdue,
we had been starting well, leveling
off in the third quarter and then

Illinois has a talented group of
sophomores, eight of whom are
starters. Five of Illinois' top six
rushers are sophomores, but t h e
leader is Robinson, a junior tail-
Robinson became a starter two
weeks ago when injuries to Mike
Walker and Willie Osley crippled
the backfield, and he has gained
350 yards since.
A good reason for Robinson's
success has been Illinois' offensive'
line. Purdue coach Bob De Moss
said, "I thought they (Robinson
and the line) did a real good job.,
We tried to take their inside
game away from them, but we ob-
viously failed miserably."
Michigan coach Bo Schembech-
ler said, "I have great respect for
Schembechler also praised soph-
omore fullback Mike Navarro, who
averages about four and a half
yards per carry.
Quarterback Mike Wells does
not go to the air very often, how-
ever. Wells, a promising sopho-
more, is a leader of the team
both on and off the field. Along
with tight end and co-captain
Doug Dieken, Wells organized the
strike in support of Valek.
When Wells does pass, more of-
ten than not, it is to Dieken. But,
said Norm Sheya of the Illinois
athletic department, "Wells has
trouble spotting secondary receiv-
ers." When his primary receivers
are covered, Wells often does not
know what to do with the ball.
Consequently, he gets dumped
more than most quarterbacks.
Against Purdue, Wells also fumb-
led twice, and one of them was
recovered by the Boilermakers and
turned into a touchdown.
Although the shortage at tail-
back has been filled, Illinois has a
similar injury problem on the de-
Two tackles have been side-
lined, and reserve middle guard
Dave Wright has been shiftd to
replace them. On the left side,
sophomore tackle Tab Bennett
leads the team with 59 tackles, 24
of them solos.
The Illini also have an out-
standing linebackerinkMoe Kelly
and a good cornerback in Gary
Windy, who intercepted twice
Windy, who has also run back
15 punts for 237 yards, made his
second interception on the Illi-
nois 15 with 18 seconds left in
Schembechler said, "Their de-
fense has been hustling and hit-
ting the last two weekends." The
Wolverines don't expect them to
let up this weekend.
FULLBACK FRITZ SEYFRTII runs into a crowd of Gophers. Seyferth scored four touchdowns
in the game against Minnesota two weeks ago.

The major factor, however, was
that the players went on strike in
support of the coach.
The team came up short in its
effort to defeat Ohio State, but
it was successful in defeating Illi-
nois' athletic department, which
had no alternative but to relent
and take Valek back.
The Illini, still on the warpath,
came from behind to defeat Pur-
due in Lafayette last Saturday, 23-,
21 and this week they will play
the Wolverines here, with Valek's
job still reportedly in jeopardy.
Two weeks ago Illinois was un-
able to prevent Ohio State from
pulling the game out. But, as
Purdue defensive coordinator Al-
len Hager put it, "It's unbeliev-
able. They just manhandled the
number one team in the nation for
three quarters, and here it is on
film to prove it."
Last week against Purdue, the
pattern was reversed. Illinois was
