A dubious prospect, at best. s
14,000 high school bandsmen willj
only be part of the show at Michi-
gan Stadium this afternoon, which
will include a Green Wave and a
(Mammoth) Blue Wave, along
with some men dressed in Maize'

There will also be a football
game, featuring eighth - ranked1
Michigan versus 18th-rated Tu-1
lane, in a battle of the undefeateds.t
The Wolverines, with victories1
over Northwestern and UCLA so
far, are not taking Tulane lightly,
however. The Green Wave has en-
gineered upsets over Boston Col-
lege (10-0) and Georgia (24-13),
and isn't about to roll over and,
play dead for the Blue.
"Tulane is a wonderful defen-
sive team," comments Michigan
head coach Bo Schembechler,,
"probably the best defensive team;
we've faced so far."
Coach Bennie Ellender brought

less than full strength. Defensive
end Randy Lee banged up his el-
bow in the win over Georgia and
is a doubtful starter for this after-
noon's contest.
Lee also doubles as a punter and
punt return specialist. After two
games he sported a fine punting
average of 43.2 yards per kick and
had handled 11 punt returns flaw-
lessly before his injury. His back-
up at that specialty, George Ew-
ing, ran one back 57 yards for the
clinching touchdown against Geor-
gia, so Tulane has a double threat
at the punt return.
Junior Mike Foley just returned
to practice Thursday at his flank-I
er position, and is reported as be-
ing "near full speed." One of three
Foley brothers on the team, he can
help keep the ball in the family on
certain plays. Brother Rob Foley,
also a junior, is the second-string
center, while sophomore Steve is
the back-up quarterback. Last
week Steve Foley tossed a 16-yard
scoring strike in his first college
game. Tom Fortner will fill in at

to par.

ning game, which finds the Wol-
verines leading the Big Ten with
290 yards per game. Individually,
fullback Ed Shuttlesworth is rat-
ed as the sixth-leading rusher in
the conference with a 95-yard av-
erage, including 4.6 yards per car-
ry.
Much unlike last season, this
year finds no one team dominating
the statistics races as Michigan
did in 1971, with five teams split-
ting leadership in eight categories.
But Tulane sports two bona fide
All-America candidates on de-
fense, a defense fashioned much
like Michigan's, and, similarly,
tough.
Linebacker Mike Mullen (look
for number 54) is a 6-2, 235-pound
senior from Dallas who was nam-
ed to a slew of minoraAll-America
teams last year as a junior. He
led the team in tackles with 101
solo jobs and 162 stops in all,
while intercepting one pass and
blocking one field goal and one ex-
tra point.
Mullen is "a ferocious tackler,"
says Coach Ellender, the same
thing they used to say about Mich-
igan's former All-America Mike
Taylor. "He diagnoses running

plays very well and . . . has the
speed to do a good job on the blitz
or to run down a runner from be-
hind."
Defensive end Mike Truax (6-3,
205) was rated as the seventh-best
sophomore in the nation in 1971
by Gridiron magazine. Last year
he racked up 86 tackles (53 of
them unassisted) and figured pro-
minently in the strong defensive
showings against Boston College
and Georgia.
"Mike has uncanny sense of tim-
ing on the pass rush and kick
rush," praises Ellender. "He plays
the option as well as anyone I've
ever seen."
After last week's highly emo-
tional victory over the Bruins at
UCLA, some may wonder if the
Wolverines can get back up for
a team like Tulane, which was not
supposed to be one of ~the na-
tion's powers.
Commenting on Schembechler's
method here, one Athletic Depart-
ment Official said, "He'll never,
never let a team get down for a
game. That's what's go great about
him." It was almost like "him"
could be changed to "Him", em-
phasizing his control over the emo-
tions of his players.
Michigan is picked to win by as
many as 20 points by one football
publication, but, as usual, Schem-
bechler is skeptical concerning the
pollsters.
This will mark the third meet-
ing between Michigan and Tu-
lane, all held in Michigan Sta-
dium. The Wolverines scored wins
of 21-0 in 1920 and 26-7 in 1953.
Also, if the crowd should exceed
83,221, it will be the largest audi-
ence the Green Wave has ever
played before. Maybe they'll get
stage fright.

It was not long ago that the Big
Ten was the top football conference
in the nation. Often Big Ten teams
would crowd the top ten list with
three or even four teams. Over
the past decade, however, the de-
cline to mediocrity, at best, has
been quick.
D i f f e r e n c e s in recruitment,
scholastic regulations, and the pro-
hibition of the red-shirt has, in
some fashion, contributed to the
demise of the once powerful foot-
ball conference.
Not only may this be the Big
Ten's worst year, but today may be
recorded as the worst Saturday in
Big Ten history as the Ten face
four of the top ten teams in the
nation.
Only Michigan and Ohio State
can be deemed to be favorites, and
these are far from sure bets.
Ohio State, name of the rush,
clashes with the power of the At-
lantic Coast Conference, North
Carolina. The fifth-ranked Buckeyes
are going to have to liveupeto that
ranking to beat the Tar Heels.
The defending ACC champions
already have three wins under
their belt and are anxious for the

national recognition they would
gain if they managed to upset the
Buckeyes. Ohio State has yet to
have a test' worthy of its high
ranking. The Bucks have only had
an easy, but not overwhelming,1
victory over weak Big Ten foe,
Iowa, two weeks ago.

Michigan State is going to be
faced with more than it can handle
when it takes the field in Southern
California. The number one ranked
Trojans will most likely have the
Spartans looking for a wooden
horse by half-time.
Both teams beat Illinois easily,
but State's erratic play while los-
ing to Georgia Tech proved they
have far to go to be a winner.
Meanwhile Southern Cal has liter-
ally demolished Oregon State and
Arkansas.
For the second week in a row
Minnesota is faced with a power-
house from the Big Eight. This
time it is the defending national
champion, Nebraska. The seventh-
ranked Cornhuskers, though upset
by UCLA in their opener, should
still have enough ammunition to
dispose of the Gophers, but prob-
ably won't romp over them as most
people suspect. Last year the
Huskers beat Minnesota 35-7, but
the margin should be half that this
time, as the Gophers showed
power in their opener against In-
diana.
A pleasant surprise in the Big
Ten this year has been Wisconsin,
victorious in both of its games so

cid test'
far. Unfortunately, that will most
likely end tonight when the Bad-
g-rs clash with the ninth-ranked
LSU Tigers in Baton Rouge.
LSU is undefeated in two tries
already and is looked on by many
experts as the best in the country.
The game should be fairly close,
but Rufus Ferguson cannodt carry
the Badgers alone.
Penn State, also ranked in the
top ten will probably feast on a
sickly Iowa team today. Iowa has
already lost to Ohio State and
Oregon State, and should be worse
off this year than when they lost,
44-14, to the Nittany Lions' last
year.
Purdue, which was supposed to
be a top power in the Big Ten this
year, epitomizes the plight of the
Conference. Their shocking fall to
Bowling Green, and then their in-
ability to hold a 21-0 lead over
Washington have led many to sus-
pect. their strength.
Today Purdue visits ever tough
Notre Dame and will have to show
Imore power if they want to chalk
"n their first victory.
The non-fighting Illini take on
the aerial bombs of a Sonny Six-
killer led Washington team today.
Illinois has been beaten twice al-
ready and there is only a slim
hope that'they will upset the
Huskies.
N In other games featuring losers,
Northwestern takes on Pitt and In-
diana plays Kentucky. Pitt has
lost three times already, but gave
UCLA athard time and will do
Imore of the same to Northwestern.
Last year Indiana smashed Ken-
tucky 28-8, but if the Hoosiers win
this time it will be close.

Blue Ruggers recover to duel
the closely matched Torontans

By JANET McINTOSH
The indomitable Michigan Rugby Football Club
will be competing on foreign soil this Saturday
as they voyage to Canada to battle the University
of Toronto today.
This is a rebuilding year for the Canadian team
(2-1), having lost about 75% of last years players
to graduation. About half the team is composed
of freshmen and sophomores, most lacking the
practice and experience necessary to playing as
a coordinated, cohesive unit.
Although John Hopkins, captain of the Toronto
ruggers, cites the loss of many of last years
players and consequently the inexperience of
this years team as their major areas of concern,
he also sees some advantages to this years dearth
of seasoned players. As he puts it, "This year
we have a more balanced team than last years
with our players practicing a more uniform play-
ing style. We have no key players and the for-
wards and backs are equally competent."

loss of many of last years dynamite backs, the
new and old team members are trying to pull
together as a team. Chris Penqyar.
All in all Michigan is in tip top shape for
Saturday's game. Starting for the Wolverines as
hooker is Hank Lukaski. Gary Anderson, who
may be used as a kicker, is in the prop position.
The Blue team is lacking an experienced kicker
this season. Gary Anderson, kicking for the
ruggers this game has been known to be slightly
erratic at times but is improving with experience.
Masher McMannus, in his first game of the
season on the blue team starts as prop. Deter-
mining the success of the scrum are the powerful
' second row forwards, Quint Flint Lawson and
Chris Penoyar. Number Eight Happy Holloway
completes the pack. The forwards have been
working out to increase the effectiveness of the
scrum.
As wing forward, John Anderson fills the bill in
his first game of the year, showing great poten-

S e arive originatea on ie mcn-
igan 20, and was highlighted by Ed
Gonzalez's 13 yard scamper that
had a fifteen yard facemasking
penalty against Notre Dame tacked
on. It was the only time in the
first half the Wolverines crossed to
the Irish side of the 50 yard line.
After an exchange of punts, the
Irish wvent to work again f in o in
their own 42. Notre Dame sped to
a first down, and then on second
and six from the Michigan 44,
speedy halfback Ron Goodman cir-
cled left end and galloped 27 yards
down the west sideline to the 17
yard line.
Michigan's defense then rose to
the occasion, stopping t h r e e
straight Notre Dame rushes short
of a first down. But on fourth down
Slager came in and split the up-
rights for a 27 yard field goal, in-

creasing the Irish advantage to
10-0 with 1:29 left in the f i r s t
half.
Early in the fourth quarter Mich-
igan gained possession after an
Irish punt and engineered t h e i r
only sustained drive of the after-
noon. Marching 80 yards in 22
plays, Gonzalez scored for the Wol-
verines on a desperation fourth
down dive from the Notre Dame
two.
Twice during the scoring drive
the Wolverines were forced to pull
out a fourth down miracle to keep
it alive. On fourth and one at the
Notre Dame 36, Jilek drove over
the middle, getting a first down
by half the length of the football.
Again, with fourth down and
three to go on the 26, Gordon Bell
came through, picking his way for
five yards and a first down to the
Notre Dame 21. Two plays later,
Bell took a handoff around left
end, broke two tackles at the line
of scrimmage and scooted down
the sideline to the seven yard line
from where the Wolverines scored
four plays later.
Notre Dame took the ensuing
kickoff at their own 32 and started
another' drive downfield. Just when
it looked as though the Wolverines
were going to hold, the Maize and
Blue got slapped with a fifteen

gave the Irish a first down on{
the Michigan 30.
Five plays later, Notre Dame's
Russ Kornman bolted 12 y *ir d s
through the middle for the clinch-
ing touchdown with only nine se-
conds remaining.
Both teams completed only two
passes, but one of Notre Dame's
was the game's biggest play, the 39
yard TD strike from Allocco to
Demmerle.
As Brown put it, Michigan "did
not see anything that we hadn't
seen before." It seems it was not
what Notre Dame did that sur-
prised the Wolverines, it was the
way they did it.
