Special To The Daily
IOWA CITY - It's the day of
the game, and the question no-
body around here seems able to
answer is: Who's going to start
at quarterback for Iowa?
The Michigan Wolverines. ar-
rived in town yesterday ready to
open their 1973 campaign, slept
safely at the Holiday Inn down
the road from Nile Kinnick Sta-
dium, and awoke this morning
not knowing which Hawkeye sig-
nal-caller would start in today's
29th renewal of the Iowa-Mich-
igan series.
Two months of spring drills
and three weeks worth of fall
practice haven't entirely helped
Hawkeye Head C o a c h Frank
Lauterbur decide upon his num-
ber one field general. Senior
Kyle Skogman and sophomore
Butch Caldwell have run head-to
head since last season ended,
and since Lauterbur has kept
practices strictly closed for the
last week, nobody knows for'
sure.
Michigan, however, has its
starting crew set, and from most
points of view will improve its
series standing with the Hawk-
eyes tos22 wins, 4tlosses and 3
ties. Head Coach Bo Schembech-
ler, entering his fifth Ann Arbor-
based season with a 38-6 mark,
sends junior quarterback Dennis
Franklin against Iowa, the team
outscored by Michigan 94-7 in
their last two meetings.

NIGHT EDITOR:
JIM ECKER
Hawkeyes' young but veteran
squad -all fall, proclaiming to-
day's game "the toughest opener
we've had since I've been at
Michigan." But Bo and the Mich-
igan public relations people who
have spent the week in Iowa City
have had trouble convincing the
folks here that the Wolves expect
a tough tussle against the Hawks.
"Bo complains all the time
about injuries," observed one
Iowa writer, "but when the sea-
son starts he always seems to
have his players ready." In addi-
tion, most people realize that
Iowa's struggling offense, com-
bined with Michigan's veteran
defense, lesson the Hawkeyes'
chances of pulling this one off.
There is one person here who
craves an Iowa upset. Chalmers
(Bump) Elliott-a three sports
star in his playing days at Mich-
igan-today holds the top athletic

administrative post at Iowa. A
brilliant football halfback who
earned All-America honors in
1947, and later Michigan's head
coach for ten years, Elliott is
in his fourth year as athletic
director here and would love
nothing m o r e than shocking
Michigan's, defending conference
co-champions in the season's
opener.
PIGSKIN prognosticaters place
the Hawkeyes anywhere from
third to sixth in the Big Ten this
year, with almost everybody ex-
pecting an improvement on last
season's 3-7-1 record. Michigan,
on the other hand, is seen finish-
ing no lower than second and
expected by many to cop the
conference crown.
But all forecasting aside, the
Wolverines unveil today the grid-
iron machine which 1) Has an
established quarterback starting
the season for the first time in
three years; 2) Returns much'
of the defense which has been
the stingiest in the nation in
allowing points the last two
years; and 3) Remembers the
1972 season finale well enough
to inspire them in their quest
of a 25th Big Ten title. Today's
ballgame will provide an early
barometer on this year's Mich-
igan football balloon.

MICHIGAN FULLBACK Ed Shuttlesworth (31) bursts through a hole in the Iowa line last year on his
way to a large gain in the Wolverines 63-7 fiesta. The Iowa defense has improved since then, however,
and today's game could prove, a strong test for the Michigan running attack.

While the Michigan Wolverines

the Gophers may not be a very
obliging victim. Minnesota gavej
Ohio State all it could handle a
year ago, reeling off 306 yards be-
fore succumbing 27-19.
"We know Ohio State has a great
team again," says Gopher Coach
Cal Stoll. "But that fact does not
defer our aims. We are going to
Columbus with every hope of giv-!

ing the Buckeyes all they want,
and then some."
At Bloomington, the Indiana-Illi-
nois contest will feature a battle
between two of the flakier coaches
in the Big Ten. Indiana's new
coach, Lee Corso, and Illinois' Bob
Blackman, entering his third year
at the helm of the Illini, are noted
for their colorful approach to the.
game and doing the unexpected.'
If nothing else, today's opener
between Northwestern and Mich-
igan State will offer an interest-
ing matchup of quarterbacks.
Northwestern quarterback Mitch
Anderson set a single-game Big
Ten passing record against the
Spartans last year by throwing
for a total of 351 yards.
Michigan State is starting junior,

run uprising in the first inning,
that lifted the Pittsburgh Pirates
to a 3-1 victory over the St. Louis
Cardinals last night.

hits before giving way to reliever
Ramon Hernandez in the seventh

the wall for a double and scored

Gridde Pickings
SOME OF YOU readers may think that you're too busy to spare(
a few minutes of your time choosing the winning teams for ourt
Gridde Pickings contest. You probably think that a chance at winning
a free Mr. Pizza pizza isn't worth the enormous mental anguish.
Undoubtedly to your shock and amazement, we, the eager beavers
of the Daily sports staff, actually found someone who either had time
for our contest, or was sufficiently spurred by dreams of the mouth-
caressing pizza to make time for it.
He is U.S. Senator Dick Clark (D-Iowa, we don't bother with
Republicans), a freshman in the upper chamber. Clark consented to
make the selections after Brady Williamson of the Senator's staff de-j
clined to make the selections himself because of a busy schedule.
CLARK LEFT an important tete-a-tete in the Senate gymnasium to
talk to the Daily. Being a Democrat (i.e. friend of the underdogs),
Clark gritted his teeth and chose his homestate Iowa Hawkeyes over
the Wolverines. His otherwise astute- picks show a keen knowledge
of football, indicating 'he may very well follow the sport as avidly
as a more publicized Washington resident, who, according to some
flunky named Ziegler, was implicated in a game of checkers and
couldn't come to the phone.
We really did talk to Clark. If you don't believe us, call the Senate
gym and ask him yourself. Thanks, and a tip of the Hatlo hat to
former Senator Jack Miller (R-Iowa) for suggesting whom to call.
The Senator's picks are in CAPITALS.

George Foster flied out but Johnny
Bench walked, loading the bases.
Gagliano followed with his single,
tying the score and then Tolan de-
livered the decisive single.
