Baby
By ELLIOT LEGOW
Wolverine football teams will be
seeking their eleventh consecutive
victory of the season today when
the Michigan freshmen travel to
East Lansing for a rematch with
the Spartans.
The Baby Blue, undefeated in
two games, will be seeking to give
Michigan its third victory of the
year over MSU and end their
three-game season undefeated.
In their first encounter between
the two teams two weeks ago at
Ann Arbor, the Wolverines thrash-
ed State 41-22 behind an explos-
ive running game. Wolverine
freshman coach Tirell Burton,

lue fac
doesn't like the idea of return en-
gagements in football, but he
doesn't expect any big problems in
today's game.
The main difference, he feels,
will be "both teams will know
more about each other. We'll be
able to take advantage of their
weaknesses." '
Burton will only be making one
major change today: he will go
with only two quarterbacks in-
stead of the usual three. This is
a change he was forced into when
Tom Slade, one of his three lead-
ing slingers, suffered a severe
charleyhorse in last week's w in
over Notre Dame and won't be
able to play. ,
Opening at quarterback against
State will be Kevin Casey. Two
factors entered into B u r t o n 's
decision to go with Casey today.
First, it is his "turn" - Burton
wants to let each quarterback start

e MSU
one game - and second, Casey
has impressed his coach with his
performances in the first t w o
games.
"He has improved a lot," Burton
asserts, "but I'm not saying he's
head and shoulders above the rest
of them."
In the opener against State,
Casey directed the Wolverines to
two second quarter touchdowns
and hit on one of three passing at-
tempts. Against Notre D a m e ,
Casey took to the air more often
and hit on seven of ten passes for
59 yards.
Burton praised the work of the
defense in the 20-0 victory over
the Irish. "They played an ex-
cellent game against Notre Dame.
The secondary played well inter-
ception-wise. The defense is get-
ting better every week."
Defensive ends Rich Mussehl
and Jimmy Armour and lineback-

again
ers Dave Gallagher and Jim Chris-
topfel were singled out by Burton.
for their defensive performances.
Burton's decision to platoon his
linemen apparently paid off
against Notre Dame and he plans
to do the same today. "We've got
the guys into a niche. We think
we know where they can play
best," he explains.
The offensive line has also satis-
fied Burton's hopes. "The w h o l e
offensive line played a good game.
Our standouts were center M i k e
Peresta, guard Kevin Masterson
and end Paul Seal".
And of course there is still a
fine running backfield moving be-
hind that line. Harry Banks and
Bob Thornbladh will again be
starting at tailback and fullback
respectively, and Ed Shuttles-
worth, Craig Mutch, and Don
Coleman will again be used ex-
tensively to spell the starters.

HONEST JULIUS
ALIAS
THE MAN

MANY, MANY, MANY
years ago there was a mighty warrior named
Julius. He was not the usual type of warrior
because he never killed people. Some peo-
ple laughed at him because of this but his
goals were different. He fought for peace,
happiness and a full stomache.
His methods were not even subversive
and in fact they were sanctioned by the
State. Julius made the best Pizza in the land.
His gourmet creations were acclaimed every-
where. They were all made from the finest
ingredients and they were bigger than any-
body else's-"20 inches of joy'-

Shooting out a funky, down-home blues is Joe Pepitone of the

Cub star Ernie Banks look on, both reminded of the late Robert
Johnson by Pepitone's soulful style. The affair took place
at the Mill Run Playhouse in Chicago.

Illinois is returning a talent-
ed amalgamation of veterans
and sophomores, and should
challenge for the Big Ten bas-
ketball title this season.
Greg Jackson scored at a 17.1
pace last year and will use his
6-8, 257-pound bulk at a center
post. Jackson is no Rudolph
Nureyev, but he usually moves
in the right direction without
being pointed and should mus-
cle a lot of rebounds for the Il-
lini.

Another returning starter is
6-2 guard Rick Howat. R i c k
singed the cords for 14 points
a game in 1969-70 and is one of
the finest outside shots in the
Big Ten.
Fred Miller will bring his 6-4
height and 12.2 points a game
back for another go-around at a
forward post.
Illinois, like most of the oth-
er Big Ten schools, has an ex-
cellent sophomore crop. F o u r
players in particular stand out:
Nick Weatherspoon, Nick Con-

WALL EES

nor, Alvin O'Neal and Jed Fost-
er.
Weatherspoon hails from Can-
ton McKinley in Ohio and rang-
es 6-6. He is rated excellent in
all phases of the game and scor-
ed 17.4 a game last year for the
Baby Illini.
Connor led frosh scorers with
a 20.8 m a r k. He is 6-7 and
comes from Columbus East in
Ohio, where h i s high school
team battled Weatherspoon's
for the Ohio state champion-
ship.
Foster and O'Neal are home-
state products, from Fairfield
and Peoria Spaulding respect-
ively. Foster is 6-6 and averaged
12.3 a game for the frosh while
O'Neal is 6-4 and canned 16.0
per contest.
A pair of returning guar s,
6-2 Bob Shapland (1.6) and 6-4
Jim Krelle (1.8), will add some
seasoning to the Illini salad but
aren't expected to accelerate the
heartbeats of any Illini fans.
The Illini received one blow
when returning guard B o b
Windmiller decided not to come
out for the team. Windmiller
may be remembered by Michi-
gan fans as the player who
dumped in a half-court bucket
in last year's Michigan-Illinois
game.

"What with all them frog wars and general discord," twanged
the lean drummer, "we just want you'all to have a good time listenin'
to our music. It's pure sweet country."
And as the huge Diag crowd rose to their collective feet in
anticipation of that first glorious note, the Range Rattlers kickedit
off. Cocaine Cutt, his eyes glazed, bomped out fiery licks on his Les
Paul Custom; the Air Force Kid's bass went thump-thump; fluid
bits of beauty flew out of the Iowa boy's MSA double-neck 10; and
Tim Lee rocked along breezily on his fifteen-piece Ludwigs.
"Who are these unreal dudes?" shouted a spectator to his friend
over the hard-rocking, Poco-like bop.
"Why boy," answered the friend, "those are the Rattlers: conceiv-
ed in country and brought up on rock and roll."
Oh yeah, git them Gridde Picks into the Daily by midnight

In Ann Arbor his descendants are still carrying on the same fine tradition.
Come and see Julius some time and follow in the footsteps of generations.

These amazing shoes were designed by an engineer for
pure comfort, then styled by Clarks for distinctive good
looks. They are an entirely new kind of shoe featuring
improved moccasin construction, elasticized laces, plan-
tation crepe soles and a radically different last that
assures superb fit and exceptional comfort. Try a pair
- you won't want to take them off.

STAROBA SPURTS:
Statmen rate Blue near top

Michigan's grid squad remained
nationally ranked in both offen-
sive and defensive categories in
this week's just released statis-
tics.
The Wolverine defensive squad
is holding down spots in four dif-
ferent defensive categories: total
defense, scoring defense, rushing
defense and punting.
Opponents of the Mammoth
Blue Wave have picked up an av-
erage of only 253.4 yards per game.
That average is good enough for a
12th place defensive ranking.
The Wolverines have done an
even better jol' of preventing the

opposition from scoring. Allow-
ing only 8.8 points per game, the
gridders are in eighth place across
the country.
The rushing defense is where'
Michigan's real strength lies. The
Wolverines have given up a mere
90.1 yards per game an'd only four
touchdowns, in this aspect of de-
fensive play.
Spearheading the rushing de-
fense, which is tied for fifth place,
are middle guard Henry Hill, line-
backer Marty Huff, and tackle
Pete Newell. Hill has 39 solo tack-
les and 29 assists'to lead the team.
Huff, with 39 solos and 28 assists,
and Newell, with 44 solos and 19
assists, follow close behind.
The punting game remains in
its lofty fourth place slot as Paul
Staroba continues to sail the pig-
skin 41.7 yards every time his foot
touches the ball.

The Wolverine rushing offense,
after a 259-yard game against Il-
linois last Saturday, fell two not-
ches to 15th. Although the output
was above their average of 250.4
yardsupergame, the Wolverines
were unable to muster enough
yardage to maintain last week's
ranking. This could, however, be
attributed to the fact that the first
string offensive unit played well
under a full game, as coach Bo
Schembechler substituted freely in
the second half.
Other than Paul Staroba, the
only other Michigan player men-
tioned in the national stats is
Tailback Billy Taylor, who made
his first appearance there this
week. Having scored nine touch-
downs and two extra points, Tay-
lor is tied for 21st in scoring, with
an average of seven points per
game.
