SEEMS incredible, but it is true. The most despised play
in the Michigan playbook, the fullback plunge up the middle, is
ne. And what is more remarkable, it is being missed.
The dislike for the fullback plunge was never general. In
ct, loathing was confined solely to those who paid their way
to Michigan Stadium to watch the Wolverines, and to those
ho followed the team on the radio. To these people, "first and
uttlesworth" was the epitome of dullness.
But Bo Schembechler liked the idea of his fullback ripping
to the middle of an opposition's defense, and he is the only
erson whose opinion matters.
This Spring, however, Bo was forced to make a tactical de-
sion. Both power fullbacks, Ed Shuttlesworth and Bob Thorn-
adh, had graduated and their replacements were two injury-
one sophomores. Gritting his teeth, Bo switched tailback
uck Heater to fullback.
Heater is an excellent athlete, with more quickness than most
illbacks. But at 205 pounds, he was obviously not going to run
er many people, and the offensive line has not been clearing
ies out of his path.
The result has been an offensive dislocation. The fullback
unge may have been dull and mind-rotting, but it was vir-
ally guaranteed to gain three yards. This year, opponents have
en taking the middle game away from Michigan.
At Wisconsin; the Wolverines used the outside running game
set up the inside plunges, the reverse of the accepted tactics
every coaching textbook.
Cal Stoll had an interesting point as he surveyed the ruins
last Saturday's game. "We had hoped to keep the Wolverines
side. If we'd have done that, there would be no way they
uld've gotten 49 points on us."
In a way, all this is unnecessary, since there is a fine big
Illback on Michigan's roster, a freshman from Shuttlesworth's
d high school in Cincinnati, Scott Corbin.
Corbin moved right in as second string fullback, and, in
ited action, has played fine ball. His best performance to date
me at Stanford, where he replaced an injured and ineffective
eater and contributed some clutch runs to the fourth quarter
ive that clinched the game.
All told, Corbin has gained 120 yards in 24 carries so far
is year, and has also contributed some effective backfield
ocking, a quantity Michigan has often lacked this season.
Nor can one fault Corbin's attitude. "Michigan's got an all
-ound good system," he claims. "It's geared so that everybody
as to do their part for it to be a success."
Chuck Heater, through his unfortunate tendency to fumble,
as lost much support among the perfectionist Michigan fans,
nd a move to Corbin would arouse little popular discontent.
