CHAMPAIGN - U R B AN A
- It's homecoming at Illinois,
the school that invented home-
coming back in 1916. The alums
are returning to the old school
to indulge in an orgy of nos-
talgia.
For many years, memories
were all that Illini fans had to
keep their spirits alive, espe-
cially against League power-1
houses such as Michigan. One
could always imagine the ballj
carrier being buried alive by a{
host of Wolverine tacklers as
Red Grange, ripping through to
the endzone.
BUT MORE than nostalgia is
evident this year. The Illini are
thinking upset, and seem to
feel that they can turn the
dream into reality.

All season, Michigan has

barely escaped with wins on
the road, the latest a 21-7 scare
at the hands of the lowly Indi-
ana Hoosiers. A squeaker here
today would make the Ohio
State Buckeyes the prohibitive
favorites for the November 23rd
clash in Columbus. A loss could
be fatal.
"Everybody's mentally readyj
for this game," said Wolfman
Don Dufek. "I think we'll rise
to the occasion."
IF MICHIGAN can shake the
roads' blues, the Illini will ap-
pear to be in serious trouble,

Stadium's substandard grass
turf would have on his team.
The turf has absorbed a lot of
water in recent days and as a
result is quite slippery.
Franklin, already hampered
by the ankle sprain, was hav-
ing a great deal of difficulty
making his cuts at practice yes-
terday. The field in fact, may
be more effective than the Illini
defense in stopping the Wolver-
ine option.
For the team, the most intol-
erable part of the past few
weeks is the waiting for Ohio
State. The games before No-
vember 23 are essentially mean-
ingless exercises and it has
been difficult for the team to
get mentally prepared.
"THE OHIO STATE game is in
the back of our minds," says
Rob Lytle, "But we just have
to take one game at a time, and
prepare for the teams we'll be
facing."
"I'm expecting a good game
today," relates Dufek, "It
seems that every team we've
played so far this year has
risen to the occasion. From
now on, teams we play won't
have much to play for except to
beat us."
But Michigan has one insur-
ance against the upset. Bo
Schembechler runs his team
with an iron hand. Anything he
does not allow is not done.
And he will not allow defeat.

DENNIS FRANKLIN appears to be at that critical moment of decision as he executes the
famous Michigan option against Michigan State. The Wolverines are optimistic that Franklin
will be able to operate at full strength against the Illini today as he has been hampered by
a nagging sprained ankle the last two games.

The Badgers, after getting off
to a flying start, have had their
troubles in recent weeks. Ex-
cept for the Ohio State game, in
which they were held to 7
points, they've scored over 20
points, in their other two league

games their defense has given
