EAST LANSING-If teams are sup-
posed to learn from mistakes, then what
happened to Michigan's freshman foot-
ball team yesterday in Spartan Stadium
should not have come as surprise.
After getting thoroughly shellacked
41-22 two weeks ago in Ann Arbor, the
Little Green Meanies came out primed
for revenge, and they turned the future
Mammoth Blue Wave into a small pud-
dle, 20-6.
It was Friday the 13th, and the Mich-
igan frosh played as if they were hexed
right from the start. Michigan State
won the toss and elected to receive, and
by the time the game was 13 seconds
old, the Spartans had taken the lead for
good.
Speedy Mike Holt took the opening
kickoff and charged unmolested up the
middle 93 yards into the endzone. Holt
broke through the middle of the Blue
Wave like a runaway surfer with a two-
blocker escort, and the only Wolverine

uins ia
defender that stood in Holt's path to
glory simply didn't have a chance.
With Kevin Casey at the helm, the
Wolverines made a valiant effort to corme
back, and on their second possession,
Casey got the attack that had produced-
61 points in two earlier triumphs un-
tracked.
The Wolverines took over after a MSU
punt on their own 43, and three shots
at State's rugged defense left them inches
short of a first down. Fullback Bob
Thornbladh muscled ahead for the neces-
sary inches, and on the next play, Cleve-
land speed merchant Harry Banks bolted
around right end, stiff-armed a deter-
mined defender, and tumbled into the
endzone for the Wolverines' lone tally of
the afternoon.
Dave Brandon failed to connect on the
PAT, and the Spartans led by one, 7-6.
Late in the second quarter, the Spar-
tans' Tom Brown downed a punt on the
Michigan one yard line, and Casey was
unable to get the Wolverines out of the
hole. On third down, Casey tried to

r

by Blue
scramble for a first down, but he was+
bumped out of bounds after throwing a
harried incompletion. The Baby Blue
pilot seemed slightly shaken up, and
never returned to the game.
Barry Dotzauer punted to the State 44,
and the slippery Holt returned it to theI
Michigan 46. On the next play, Spartan I
quarterback Mark Niesen hit Mike Hurd
on the sideline as a Wolverine back fail-
ed on an interception try. Hurd streaked
to the six before being sacked. Threet
plays later, Niesen squirmed over from
the one, and Anderson's PAT made it
14-6.
The Wolverines appeared to get it allc
together in the second half, taking thet
opening kickoff back to their own 36 and }
then methodically grinding out yard after1
tough yard. After moving down to thet
State five in 13 plays, Greg Koss, who
replaced Casey at the helm, was hit as
he tried to pitch back on the option, and
Paul Hayner recovered for State.-
Hayner picked up the ball and took offN

finale
down the field. College rules, however,
prohibit the defense from running with
a fumble, and though the officials fran-
tically blew their whistles, the ecstatic
Hayner loped merrily into the endzone.
The Spartans were unable to move the
ball, but the fumble marked the end of
Michigan's last threat.
With about six minutes left in the
game, the Wolverines punted the ball
away to State, and the Spartans took
over on their own 35. Michigan was just
itching to get their hands on the ball
again, but Niesen never gave them a
chance. Once on third down and once
on fourth, he faked the Wolverines silly
to allow the Spartans to keep possession.
Finally, with 17 seconds remaining, Holt
boomed over untouched from the three
to end the scoring.
The Spartans outgained Michigan 337
yards to 230, and in general seemed to
have an emotional edge that was re-
flected in the final score. The game was
the last for both teams, both finishing
with 2-1 records.

HARRY BANKS (42) sweeps left end in the first Michigan-Michigan State freshmen played here
in Ann Arbor. Yesterday in East Lansing, Banks scored Michigan's only touchdown on a similar
sweep. The Little Green Meanies were in full command, however, as they thrashed out a 20-6 victory.

Iowa
By TERRI FOUCHEY'
"We've been working on
three or four new goal-line
defenses and on quick 'kick-
ing from different forma-
tions. We have a pitch-out
to the wingback and h a v e
him kick after he gets the
ball", says Iowa C o a c h
Ray Nagel in reference to
the preparation he has been
giving the Hawkeyes for
their meeting with Michigan
today.
This strategy'"may seem a bit
pessimistic but it is in line with
the view Nagel has of the Wol-
verines. "They're just an- out-
standing team. The offense took
a while to come along but
tliey've really rolled since t h e
running backs were set. Michi-
gan is one of'the smartest teams
in the country, but upsets hap-
pen and we like to think there's
a possibility of one happening
this week."
The Hawkeyes have several
factors which may add up to an
upset. One of these is the mo-
mentum they have gained in
their last two games. They tied
Minnesota 14-14 two weeks ago,
a score which is not really in-

gins at 1:30 and will be carried

dicative of the one sidedness of
the game in which Iowa won
the statistical battle.
LAST WEEK they won both
in statistics and on the field,
thrashing Indiana 42-13 in a
game where the previously dor-
mant offense suddenly came to
life, especially the passing game,
which had been a cause for con-
cern.
If the passing game is a cause
for concern, the running game
is the bright spot on the Hawk-
eye offensive horizon. Two
backs, tailback Levi Mitchell
and fullback Tim Sullivan pro-

puts
vide the spark for the ground
forces.
RUNNING OUT of the wing-
T, or the spread or tight wings
of the Iowa multiple offense,
Mitchell has gained 807 yards
this season and scored t h r e e
touchdowns. Michigan h e a d
coach Bo Schembechler describ-
es Mitchell as "the cutest thing
I've ever seen. He's clever t he
way he dances around the field
and he's also a very strong,
slashing runner." A third of
Mitchell's total yards have come
in the past two games wh ile
Sullivan has amassed 208 of his
457 yards during these c o n-
tests. Sullivan's greatest asset
is his blocking which is c o n-
sidered invaluable to the ground
attack.
If either of the premier run-
ners does not shine as he should,
the back-up corps of tailback
Dave Harris, and fullbacks Steve
Penney and Frank Holmes also

kick
present threats by land to the
sanctity of the Michigan e n d
zone.-
This bright spot may be dim-
med by the Wolverine rushing
defense which has allowed an
average of only 90 yards on the
ground to its eight opponents.
The immovable Maize and Blue
front wall has not only permit-
ted little forward progress, but
also thrown opposing runners
for losses 68 times.
The combination of the Hawk-
eye running attack and the
Wolverines rushing defense pre-
sents a case of "strength against
strength" according to Schem-
bechler. Nagel views the situa-
tion similarly, "We respect their
defense, especially the rushing
defense, but they present a chal-
lenge we have to face. It's ne-
cessary for us to run against
them and we plan to do our
best. We don't intend to rely

solely on running; we hope to
mix it with passing."
THIS MIXTURE is like going
from the fire back into the fry-
ing pan. The Wolverine pass de-
fense has been a little kinder
to opponents in terms of yard-
age given up, allowing about 140
yards per game, but has counter-
acted this generosity by inter-
cepting 19 enemy aerials. Nagel
looks on the defensive secondary
as "very, very good" and sees the
linebacking corps as "outstand-
ing" and as complements to
both the passing and rushing de-
fenses.
The Hawkeyes hope the bal-
anced attack which surfaced in
their last two battles, with
the passing game contributing
its share, is another factor in a
possible upset. Schembechler
agrees with this appraisal.
"They have a great offense;
they have only lacked a quar-
terback who can pass. If they
could pass, they have the mater-
ial to do it all."
The quarterback problem has
been a thorn since last spring
when last year's starter, Larry
Lawrence, quit and left Iowa in
disgust with the entire football
program. Roy Bash began the
season at the helm, but lost his
job to sophomore Kyle S k o g-
man after three games. Neither
was very 'productive as the
Hawkeyes overallrecord w ill I
attest, but against the Hoos-
iers, Bash regained the starting
berth and "had his best game",
according to Schembechler.
Bash's emergence correspond-
ed with a general offensive pick-
up and Nagel feels 't'he offense
has been generating a great
deal better the last couple of
weeks."

BUENOS AIRES (P) - The
Municipal Boxing Comission of
Buenos Aires yesterday suspended
Argentine heavyweight O s c a r
\"Ringo" Bonavena for 90 days.
The move could lead to calling
off his scheduled 15-round fight
with Muhammad Al on Dec. 7 in
New York.
Municipals officials said the fight
would have to be canceled if the
Argentine Boxing Federation con-
firms the penalty ordered by the
commission.
The penalty was due to Bon-
avena's "repeated refusal to cut
his hair," an attitude which vio-
lates local rules, according to the
committee's resolution.

Manning and Kerry Reorden t
providing "the good tight end
and flanker" Schembechler at- 1
tributes to the Hawkeye pass-
ing game.1
Iowa employs either a 4-3 or
a 5-2 defense. Since the Mich- E
igan State game three weeks 1
ago when the defense was hit
for 37 points, Nagel observes r
that it has "shown improve-
ment in all phases. Against MSU,Y
the pass killed us and we got t
behind early and just couldn't t
overcome it. Since then I think
we've shown improvement i
against both the rush and pass."1

backers Dave Clement, who has
55 solo tackles to his credit, and
co-captain Dan McDonald. De-
fensive end Layne McDowell,
who has thrown runners for
losses five times, anchors the
line. Another defensive standout
is halfback Craig Clemons. Nag-
el considers Clemons "one of
the finest backs in the Big
Ten."
The improving defense will
pit itself against a Wolverine
offense steadily jelling s i n c e
the Big Ten season began and
which played mistake-free foot-
ball while doing just about
everything else against Illinois
last week. Except for the per-
sistent pinched nerve in Wern-
er Hall's shoulder, the Wolver-
ines are healthy.
Schembechler expects some
new things from the Hawkeyes,
(not exactly what Nagel says
he's preparing) and "we'll add a
couple new wrinkles to our at-
tack."
If the Hawkeyes continue to
improve as they have in their
last two encounters, their up-
set dreams may become a real-
ity.
