PALO ALTO, Calif.-Althougl:

Well, not exactly everyone,
but three guys in particular.
Mike Cordova has been the most
publicized of the trio, and has
started twice, and Guy Ben-
jamin got the nod against Il-
linois. The third man, Jerry(

Waldvogel, will try to break
Michigan's 14-game overall un-
beaten string and three-game
skein against Pac-Eight teams
as the Wolverines.and Cardinals
clash at 4:30 p.m. EDT today
in Stanford Stadium. Sunny
skies and mild temperatures
are predicted.
Waldvogel is a mystery man
to the Wolverines. Bo Schem-
bechler, who can usually tell
you the shoe sizes of the op-
posing players, is in the dark'
about Waldvogel. "I don't know
anything about. him," Bo quip-
ped, "except that he's blond."
Actually, Christiansenisn't
trying to make his football
team into a co-op, he's just
trying to find a quarterback.
Cordova has thrown 100 of the
Cards total of 115 passes, but
has been plagued by inter.
ceptions in a 42 per cent com-
pletion average.
The question gnawing at Car-
dinal fans and Bay Area writers
is not therstrategy of giving
each quarterback a chance, but

why Waldvogel didn't play
against San Jose State which
tied Stanford last week, 21-21.
That way, Christiansen could
have made up his mind by the
Michigan game and be all set
for the league opener at UCLA
next Saturday.
Quarterback t r o u b 1 e s are
nothing new for Christiansen,
who used to coach the San
Francisco 49ers. At that time,
he had former Stanford great
John Brodie and hot-shot col-
legian George Mira. The local
citizenry clamored for Mira and
actually pressured Christiansen

into starting him one day. Mira,
recently resurrected in the
World Football League, fell on
his face, and Christiansen learn-
ed not to listen to the fans.
But don't be surprised if
Waldvogel's trial doesn't last
that long, especially if the
Wolverines jump out to a big
lead. Last year, in the herald-
ed rematch of the 1972 Rose
Bowl, the game was over al-
most before it started.
Michigan drove 80 yards with
the opening kickoff and added
two more scores in rapid suc-
cession after Cardinal turn-


overs, en route to a convincing l
47-10 win. Despite the score,
Schembechler didn't think the
Cardinal's defense was that bad.
"Everybody looks at that score
from last year, but we did not a n
blow them out. I can't count on
their errors and those two Mike
Lantry fifty yard field goals
like last year."
But despite the unsettled
quarterback position here, the

In these parts, a quarter-
back is supposed to throw a
lot and run when necessary,
not vice-versa. Although Bo
never does anything to aid
an individual's drive for per-
sonal honors, don't be shocked
if the California air if full of
footballs this afternoon.
Just as Michigan has often
been characterized as a team
that runs conservative offensivef
patterns and wins a minimum
of ten games a year, the Cards
have beenvpredictably unpre-
dictable. Even in its best of
years, Stanford loses a few easyk
games and wins a few toughies.
In 1971, for example, the Cards
lost to San Jose State, Washing-
ton State, and California, but
beat USC, UCLA, and Michigan.
As Bo says, "It's the same
old Stanford team."
