Special
By RANDY PHILLIPS
It was a good ol'. "grind meat" offense
again yesterday when the Wolverines smash-
ed through Tulane's touted defense for a con-
vincing 41-7 victory.
However, the real key to the 41 points
scored had to be in the play of the defense
and the specialty teams. True, fullback Ed
Shuttlesworth gained a whopping 151 yards
for three TD's, and the offense moved well
at times, but two plays in the first quarter
were the ones that broke the back of the
Green Wave.
With Michigan up 7-0 after Shuttlesworth's
21 yard scoring jaunt, Tulane tried to move
the ball from its own 20. But Randy Logan
picked off an errant Mike Walker terial and
galloped into the end zone. Halfback Roy
Burke threw a nifty block to spring Logan
for the last ten yards.
Two series later Tulane got the ball again
deep in its own end after a 62 yard Barry
Dotzauer punt and was denied a first down
by the "stretch but don't give" Wolverine
defense. The Green Wave punted to speedster
Gil Chapman, who took the ball up the mid-
dle, broke two tackles and sped 49 yards for
a score. That tally gave Michigan a quick 21-
0 lead in the first period, and it had to take
much of the fight out of Tulane.
Wolverine coach Bo Schembechler sum-
med it up well: "We had respect for Tulane;
they're a good defensive football team.
Those two plays (punt return, interception)
kind of settled the issue, but other than that
it is 7-0 at the half and a tough ball game."
The Greenies didn't roll over and play
dead after the quick three touchdown spurt
by Michigan. They scrapped all the way

victory

and did not allow the Wolverines to score
again until the third quarter, but poor field
position and having to play catch-up football
against Michigan's strong defense kept Tu-
lane bottled up the rest of the day.
Tulane never got possession of the ball
past its own 36 yard line, and five times had
to start inside its twenty. Much of this was
the result of Barry Dotzauer's fine punt-
ing day, and much of the poor field posi-
tion can also be attributed to good coverage
on both punts and kick-offs. David Lee could
only manage 11 yards on punt returns for
the Green Wave. Schembechler noted, "No
one has run a punt back for over ten yards
against us all year. ..
Dotzauer booted the pigskin for kicks of
62 and 63 yards, and ended up with a su-
perb 45 yard average for the game. Kick-off
specialist Mike Lantry consistently reached
the endzone on his boots, a feat that Michigan
kickers have not been able to do in a long
while. But Lantry did have his problems
with accuracy-missing a 31-yard field goal
attempt and an extra point try.
Meanwhile, the Wolverines were getting
untracked on offense from their own 49, 48,
40, and the Tulane 49. Chapman set up most
of this fine field position by rambling 118
yards on seven punt returns and one kick-off
return.
The little speedster from New Jersey fin-
ally was able to make use of his open field
running, his specialty in high school. "It
felt kind of good-my first college TD. I'm
basically an open field runner," Chapman
offered.
Only a sophomore, and only 5-9, Chapman
did make a few mistakes that smacked of
inexperience. Twice he caught the ball on

punts with his knee touching the ground, and
that prevented a return on the kicks. His
running from the wingback position netted
only 12 yards, and Chapman admits he needs
to improve his running from scrimmage. He
has a little trouble following his blockers on
occasion. He.admitted, "I need a little more
experience running. In high school the holes
were as big as a truck."
On his TD scamper, Chapman followed his
blocking well enough on what was- set up as
a middle return. Although he was happy with
his one score he felt he "should have broken
three of them." He nearly did break two
more - both in the second quarter.
Schembechler felt the touchdown run real-
ly helped Chapman. "In high school he broke
away all the tine, but he has to learn you
don't do that up here. But now he knows that
he is capable of breaking the big play at
some time or other," Bo commented.
Michigan's offensive play was very good
and not so good at various times in the
game. It was unlikely that the Wolverines
could control the ball against the Tulane de-
fense as well as they did against UCLA a
week ago. Against the Bruins the offense
drove the length of the field several times
for scores. This week they didn't have to.
Michigan didn't make any big mistakes-
no fumbles and no interceptions. That makes
only one fumble in three games which is
what the Wolverines have to do to make their
type of game go. A tough defense, no mis-
takes, good specialty team work, and a ball
control offense spell success, for Michigan
football this season. It was successful for the
third straight time against Tulane to the tune
of 41-7.

THE SCOREBOARD read Michigan 41, Tulane 7. Some 84,000
fans (including 13,000 high school band members) filed out
slowly, some drunk, some high, some rowdy; leaving their
crumpled beer cans and empty wine bottles behind.
A typical Ann Arbor Football Saturday. Everyone went home
happy, provided they've learned what and what not to expect
from Michigan football.
For instance: Expect to see Michigan win. Do not expect to
see a close game. Expect to see the same play run many, many
times. Do not expect to see many passes.
Once you know the score, you're alright. Let's take a look at
yesterday's game. Michigan, ranked eighth, plays Tulane, ranked
18th; both undefeated. Michigan is the consensus favorite, but
Tulane is a good team and Michigan is not taking them lightly.
The game starts and bang, Michigan has three touchdowns in
the first quarter, two of them contributed by its defense. Now
every seasoned Michigan-watcher in the place knows that when
Bo Schembechler has a 21-0 lead, he intends to keep it. No fancy
stuff, just good, solid ball-control football. The game is over. The
only question is whether-or not Tulane will ever score.
The Green Wave did manage to put seven points on the
board, but only after Michigan tried everything in the book to
stop them. After the Greenies completed a 50-yard pass against
Michigan's second string that moved them to Michigan's 14-yard
line, the aroused first-stringers came back on the field to try
and stop Tulane. But in their exuberance, they cost the Wol-
verines five yards for an illegal substitution.
"Our defensive team does not like to be scored on," a smiling
Schembechler said, defending what someone suggested was his
only mistake of the game. "They (the first-stringers) requested
permission to enter the game." And it seems they sent them-
selves in.
But seven points given up is no crime, especially when a
team's psyche is eased after the three quick strikes that Michi-
gan came up with yesterday. The fact that they didn't quit and
scored three more is what'the country's pigskin pollsters ought to
consider this week.
Ed Shuttlesworth, living up to his preseason All-America tabs,
had another super day, scoring three times and thundering for
151 yards .on 20 carries. The big tank from Cincinnati is on his
way to a 1,000 yard season, picking up on hints dropped to him in
practice from Schembechler and the coaching staff.
"We've been trying to get Shuttlesworth to pump those legs
more," Schembechler said, "because basically he can be a break-
away guy. He's doing that now and it's real good."
But Big Ed would have liked to break away a little more than
he did. "I got some pretty nice holes," he said, combing his hair.
"But, man, I want one of those nice long ones - 60, 70 yards -
like that. Who said I got to pump my legs more? When I'm in
shape, I can run pretty good. I guess I can go around 4.6 in the
40. I guess I'm in shape right now.
"I'd like to go 1,000 yards this year, yeah. I got some other
goals, too, but I'm keeping those to myself until the season's
over. "
The Wolverines should have another "easy" game this week
when Navy comes to town. And that should give Schembech-
ler another chance to look at his talent. One man he may want
to give a good shot to next week is sophomore tailback Chuck
Heater. The six foot, 205-pounder ran with authority, gaining 51
yards in just seven fourth quarter carries.
"Heater looked good," Schembechler said. "He's a powerful
back and we're pleased with his running. He should see more and
more action."

crowd to its feet as he completed a
twelve yard pass to Bo Rather on
the three yard line. From there
Shuttlesworth powered his way
into the endzone for his second
score of the day.
A little later defensive back
Burks made his second fine play of
the contest, squelching a Tulane
threat .with an interception of a
Walker aerial on the Wolverines'
three yard line.
'eWalker and sophomore SteveFo-
ley who alternated at the helm
had a rough afternoon at the hands
of the Michigan defense which has
now allowed only two touchdowns
in three games.
Walker managed to complete
only three passes and was inter-
cepted twice. While Foley, a
scrambler, fared better, complet-
ing seven for 104 yards, he could-
n't move the team close enough
to score until early in the fourth
period.
Earlier in the game Lee Gibson
had missed a 47 yard field goal
attempt, but the Green Wave final-
ly made it onto the scoreboard
with about twelve minutes left to
play. After taking Barry Dotz-
auer's punt on its own 36, Tulane
marched to the Wolverines' 14 on
a fifty yard pass from Foley to
fullback Lyndon Lassiter that Dave
Zuccarelli just missed blocking.
After being penalized five yards

for illegal substitution, the tern
parorily stunned Wolverines were
caught for pass interference giving
the Wave the ball on the one. Foley
then carried the ball in for the
score.
Undaunted, the Michigan team
recovered'its poise and the onside
kickoff on its own 46, gaining the
same fine field position it had
been getting during the whole
clash, and Franklin marched the
squad to the four yard line with
the help of a 22 yard run around
right end by Chuck Heater and
Shuttlesworth then crashed in for
his final tally of the day.
Heater, coming in at tailback in
the fourth quarter had a fine aft-
ernoon, rushing for 51 yards in only
seven carries while Larry Cipa, in
his one series at the helm, piloted
the team to its last score of the
day, a one yard plung by Thorn-
bladh set up by Cipa's passes to
John Daniels, Thornbladh and
Larry Gustafson.
Tulane made one last ditch ef-
fort to get on the board again but
time ran out on them as Foley's
last second pass for Tom Thibi-
deaux from the Michigan 47 fell
incomplete.
Surveying the wreckage, Tulane
coach Bernie Ellender had noth-
ing but praise for the Michigan
team. "It was all Michigan's day,"
