big trouble because the Boiler-

WITHOUT Mike Phipps, the
Boilermakers -will be somewhat
weaker on offense. However, new
coach Bob DeMoss, who has de-
veloped quarterbacks like Bob
Griese and Lenny Dawson in the
past, feels he can do it again with
his four sophomore prospects. t
Added to Purdue's problems is
their defense. Four-fifths of the
defensive line and All-American
defensive back Tim Foley have
graduated and DeMoss will have
his work cut out for him finding

MSU coach Duffy Daugherty'
feels he has solved his quarter-

he could be moved back if Ras-
mussen doesn't make the grade.

THEIR DEFENSE is very solid
with all but two lettermen re-
turning. It was this defense that
held Michigan to just one touch-,
down in the first half of last
year's battle and with the right
breaks they could make times ve'y
difficult for the Wolverines.

Wolverines face the weaker but
still potentially troublesome teams'

Rugby, in brief explanation, is
,an offspring of soccer and very,
similar to American football. It
is a very 'simple game to follow;
and, like football, the object of
the game is to move the ball over
the goal line.
The name of the game, as well
as the game itself, originated by
accident in an experiment in Eng-
land in 1823. During a \s o c c e r
game at Rugby School one of the
players (rightfully named Wil-
liam Webb Ellis) carried the ball
and a new variation of soccer was
formed, although nothing result-
ed from the experiment until 1839.
The game was renewed at Cam-
bridge during an intramural soc-
cer game, and called Rugby's

Each team consists of 15 play-
ers. The players are divided into
three units making up the "life
cycle of attack" the "ball get-
ters," the "link and pivot," and
the "penetrators." Play begins
in either a scrummage, a ruck a
line-out, a maul, or a kick-off
which opens each 40 minute half.
There is a five minute half-time
and no time-outs or substitutions.
Like football the kickoff to start
the game must travel ten yards
and then it i$ a "live" ball. A play-
er may advance the ball by run-
ning with it kicking it forward or
passing it backward similar to the
pitch-out or lateral in football.
This is the best way of advancing.
