As this year's crop of Michi-
gan gridiron seniors make final
preparations for the season
which will make or break their
pro football dreams let's see what
has become of those who were in
the same position just one year
ago.
During last winter's pro foot-
ball draft ten Wolverines were
split among ten pro clubs. Since
then, three have been cut loose
while seven remain in the pro
ranks with what appear to be
bright futures with their respec-
tive clubs.
Tom Darden, who was the first
Wolverine to be selected in the
pro draft, going in the first
round to the Cleveland Browns
picking 18th, has already won
the respect of the Browns' coach-
ing staff and the hearts of Brown
fans.
Darden will start in the de-
fensive secondary for the Browns
in their season opener with the
Greer Bay Packers. Leg bruises,
however, have hampered Dar-
den's exciting punt return ability.
The only other Wolverine se-
lected in the first round, Mike
Taylor, who went to the New
York Jets picking 21st, has re-
ceived high praise for his ability
on the blitz which is a rare com-
plimentbfor a rookie linebacker.
Taylor, however, reported late
and with injuries to the Jet train-
ing camp due to the College All-
Star game and will see only
specialty team action at the be-
ginning of the season. Jet coaches
are confident that should they
lose a member of their veteran
linebacking crew Taylor will be
more than an adequate replace-
ment.
The biggest disappointment of
the Wolverines drafted last win-
ter has been Billy Taylor, the
man who shattered almost every
school record ever established by
a Michigan running back.
B.T., drafted surprisingly late
in the fifth round by the Atlanta
Falcons, was cut early and pick-
ed up by the St. Louis Cardinals
as a free agent and has since

been dropped from their squad.
Glenn Doughty, who was an-
other Wolverine who reported
late to training camp because
of the College All-Star game,,
has won a second string receiver
job with the Baltimore Colts be-
hind veteran Sam Haverlack.
Doughty was a second round
pick.
The Buffalo Bills have appar-
ently cashed in on their first
pick in the second round, Reggie
Mackenzie. The ex-Wolverine is
a possible starter at guard for
the Bills in their season opener.
A surprising success story
among the Wolverines drafted

has been that of Guy Mu
Murdock, drafted in the n
last round by the Houston(
appeared to have been d
because the Oilers needede
to fill a late round pick
pro draft could be comp
Murdock, however, has
taken his pro adventurev
little more zeal than the
late round draft pick an
succeeded in making the
final cut with a good shot
starting center spot.
Third round picks Tom

so the Fritz Seyferth, who was draft-
leted. ed in the last round by the New
under- York Giants, and Mike Oldham

usual skins in the 12th round, both

tively, draft.

By MICHAEL LASH
For the first time since t h e
days before Toledo began its awe-
some reign, a hot battle for a
league championship could de-
velop among the powers of the
Mid-America Conference.
Crippled by the loss of record-
breaking quarterback Chuck Ea-
ley and 14 other graduated start-
ers, the Rockets defend their title
with only an inkling of hope and
former tailback Joe Schwartz.
Schwartz, who plowed out 1079
yards and 18 touchdowns I a s t
season as one of the nation's
leading rushers, will try his hand
at quarterback in ,a last-ditch
effort to preserve Toledo's un-
precedented three-year domina-
tion of the MAC.
Their 35-game win streak al-
ready snapped in a season-open-
ing 21-0 skunking at the hands of
small powerhouse Tampa. T h e
Rockets can only hope to over-
come a rough schedule and top
their two biggest league threats,
Miami and Bowling Green.
Coach Jack Murphy still s e e s
hope for his fading champions,
though, and looks to lettermen

George Keim, Dick Eberlin, and
,Bob Vickers for backfield sup-
port for Schwartz.
Tackle Steve Donahue will di-
rect a defensive unit which has
run off three consecutive national
defense championships (least
yardage given up).
Meanwhile, down in Oxford,
Ohio, Coach Bill Mallory is set-
ting his sights on guiding Miami
to its first conference title in six
years. With 3 lettermen, includ-
ing 16 starters, back from last
year's 7-3 squad, the Redskins
have good reason for such op-
timism.
Leading an explosive offense
which boasts three All-MAC per-
formers is tailback Bob Hitchens,
who rushed for 1157 yards and 13
TD's last season. Steve Williams,
a sensation in spring practice,
gets the nod as starting quarter-
back over Stu Showlton, 1 a s t
year's number one man.
Bowling Green looks to young
superstar Paul Miles and exper-
ienced quarterback Reid Lam-
port to lead a devastating offen-
sive attack that gives the Falcons
a clear shot at the MAC title.
Miles, a junior tailback, col-
lected 1185 yards last season to
rank as one of the nation's best
sophomores and its tenth lead-
ing rusher. Coach Don Nehlen's

defense sports seven returning
starters, including tackle T o m
Hall, who started at middle guard
last year.
After opening its season with a
mild 28-20 upset over Long Beach
State, Western Michigan figures
to be a team to be reckoned with
in this season's MAC race.
Junior halfback Larry Cates
heads a list of four returning of-
fensive Broncos who earned All-
MAC berths in 1971. Still, Coach
Billy Doolittle is faced with a
general lack of depth, and that
could be a serious setback to
Western's title hopes this year.
In his 15th year as head foot-
ball coach at Ohio University,
Bill Hess will rely mainly on
sophomores to carry the 1972
Bobcats. Rich Bevly replaces
junior Dave Juenger at quarter-
back, while soph Cleveland Moul-
try joins Juenger as a receiver
in an attempt to improve last
year's 5-5 mark.
Kent State's only real hopes
seem to lie in its speedy back-
field, which includes Jeff %Murrey
and Olympic runner Gerald Tin-
ker, who both will alternate as
split ends. Quarterback L a r r y
Hayes and middle linebacker Bob
Bender could also beef up an
otherwise bleak picture for Coach
Don James' Golden Flashes.
