Dan Borus ----
M4AYBE IT WAS the crisis in Washington, maybe it was the
weather, or maybe it was just one of those days but Bo
Schembechler didn't have a lot to say at yesterday's press
luncheon.
So instead, Schembechler gave "The Rap, Monday Morning
Style." He told everyone how his team played well, but still
needed work and "a test." And like he does every Monday he
gave his opposition some kind words and proclaimed them "our
biggest test to date."
"Minnesota is the best running team we'll face," Schem-
bechler revealed, "they are quick. Especially that Powell and
Upchurch. The Wisconsin backs were okay, but they' didn't
have the speed of these guys." All well and true.
Then Schembechler lauded the Minnesota defense. Actually
it was damning with faint praise. "They're much more solid
than they were in the beginning of the year. They've tightened
their formations and have put in a new set of secondary men."
This, of a defensive team that allowed Iowa (0-6) 23 points.
There have been rumors floating around ,that bad blood
exists between Michigan and Minnesota in light of the Gophers
great success recruiting footballers from the Wolverine state.
In fact, 12 Michiganders dot the Minnesota roster. On that list,
three are starters and four are second string.
But that wasn't bothering Schembechler yesterday-his
offensive line was. As he has done ever since the injury curse
has hit the Wolverines, Schembechler cautioned against the
idea that the line was strong enough to support the kind of awe-
some running attack Maize and Blue partisans have known for
the last few years. As a result of injuries, one set starting line
has yet to emerge.
This could prove to be a boon at the end of the year, for
barring further injury; Schembechler may have an overabund-
ance of tough linemen. Should Jim Coode, Kirk Lewis, Mike
Hoban and Dave Metz regain top form, Schembechler may be
able to play the Nov. 24th classic with two complete sets of
offensive linemen, enabling him to always have fresh troops'
in the pits.
Much depends on how, far injured linemen can bounce back
from disabilities. Schembechler figures that it takes two weeks
of solid practice after coming off crutches before an injured
lineman can regain the timing to play fairly regularly.
Last week's line played extremely well. All linemen were
graded over 70 in the films and Schembechler was pleased
about that, calling the effort, "our best since Iowa." The
results were obvious, 523 total yards.
However not all is well with the offense. As opposed to last
year at this comparative point when 12 fumbles had been re-
corded by the offense, 16 have been marked down in Michigan
records. Whereas two errant aerials were thrown by Michigan
quarterbacks, six have been to date this year.
This latter statistic is not a function of an increased Maize
and Blue airborne 'attack. After six games last season, Mich-
igan had attempted 59 passes, this year 60. In addition the
Wolverines have racked up 36 penalties for 353 yards. Last year
they in the entire season, only had 51 for 513 yards.
All these statistics are not offered to prove the thesis that
the Wolverine offense is faltering, but only to support the
Schembechler notion that, "We've got a lot of work to do before
we can challenge for the title. As it stands now, I don't know
if we can take Ohio State."
For those who are ready to take on Ohio State right now,
Woody Hayes made a small but omnious noise in Columbus
yesterday. Hayes announced to all that John Hicks was the
best tackle he has ever coached. "First, the more you brag

supset',
and, with conservative play selec-
tion, marched to the Oakland 47-
yard line before punting. The Raid-
ers weren't able to move out of1
the hole and had to give up the
ball themselves, with Denver tak-
ing over at the Raider 46 following!
a short punt.
However, Clarence Davis fum-'
bled on a hard hit by Denver line-
backer Bill Laskey at the Bronco
20, and safety Bill.Thompson pick-
ed up the loose ball on the first
bounce and outran everybody for
an 80-yard touchdown.
Oakalnd began moving the ball
again late in the period as Stabler
hit Fred Biletnikoff for 15 yards
and Mike Siani for 23.
Oakland cut the deficit to 7-3 atE
13:09 of the second period whenl
George Blanda kicked a 35-yard
field goal-the 300th of his career.
After Oakland took possession on
the 20, Stabler hit Siani all alone
near midfield and Siani went all
the way for an 80-yard scoring'
play. That made it 10-7 Oakland.
Blanda's 13-yard field goal with
16 seconds left game the Raidersj
a 13-7 halftime lead.
Following the second-half kik-
off, the Broncos held Oakland at
the 10 and then moved 59 yards in
10 plays with Little scoring a
touchdown from the one-yard line:'
That gave the Broncos a slim 14-13
lead at 7:53 of the third period.
Just 57 seconds after the DenverI
TD, Raider running back Marv
Hubbard fumbled the ball on his
own 44 and rookie defensive end
Barney Chavous picked it up for
the Broncos.
Denver, however, was unable to
move and Turner kicked a 43-yard
field goal. That made it 17-13 Den-
ver.

Gridule Pickinugs
WE'D LIKE TO be amusing today, but frankly we can't see how.I
The disgusting events in Washington, falling neatly into the
pattern of duplicity and turpitude characteristic of Richard Nixon
from the first day he entered public life, make it perfectly clear that
there are a lot more pressing things to worry about than picking 20
winners of college football games, getting the entries into the Michigan
baily no later than midnight Friday, and possibly winning a free
Mr. Pizza pizza.
The death of Pablo Casals, throughout his long life both a superla-
tive cellist and a consistent foe of Francisco Franco's Spanish
fascism, should remind us that sports must never degenerate into
an escape: there is a "real world" beyond what Doc Greene
called the "toy department" which is not nearly as facile or
stereotypic as the games we play, in which people struggle and
die and the good people lose in situations for which there is no
"wait until next year."
By all means, keep sending us your Gridde Pickings entries,
but while you do, drop a friendly line to your -nearest Congressman
telling him you'd like to see Tricky Dick out of office by the end
of the week, if not sooner.
* * *
We will announce the winners of last week's contest tomorrow.
The Postal Service was closed due to "Veterans Day" and we want
to be sure we have all the eligible entries before we hand out any
more free pizzas.

.Ruggers fall
to MSU club
By BRIAN DEMING
Racked with injuries and de-
pendant upon inexperienced per-
sonnel the Michigan Rugby Club
dropped a pair Saturday to Mich-
igan State. The blue were shut out
24-0' while the Gold were edged
10-9.
The The Blue, though thoroughly
humbled by the Spartans, showed
a wealth of first year talent in the
performances of Angelo Toco,
wing (corresponds to a split end
in football), and Howard Nelson,
fullback. Both men, in their first
year on the team, performed well,
in spite of their inexperience.
Scoring in the Gold game was
done by George Surgent with a
try (four points), and by W~es
Lawton with a converson (two
points) and a penalty kick (three
points).
Playing in his first rugby game,
Ron Parson sparked the Gold at-
tack with a dazzling display of
fspeed.
The Rugby Club's record now
stands at 3-5 for the Blue and 2.3
for the Gold.
Co-captains Walt Holloway and
Cleland Child will lead the Blue
and Gold in their next action Sat-
urday against Toronto Scarbor-
ough. The doubleheader will begin
at 1:00 at Palmer Field.
