Denny Brown's biggest problem
as coach of Michigan's Varsity
Reserve team is finding out who
will be eligible tol for his
team. He usually finds this out
only two days before the day of
the game.'
This week's game, which will
be against Purdue, will start at
one o'clock Monday afternoon. The
game was' originally scheduled for
Friday, but due to the new, rule I
this year making freshmen eligi-
ble for varsity play, the change
was made. According to the ruling
a player cannot play in one game
if he has played in another game
four or less days before. This is
the reason for Denny Brown's pre-
dicament this week. t
Any players who don't play in
the varsity game against Navyj
this Saturday will be eligible to
play .Monday. This leads to a very
interesting relationship between
the success of Bo's Big Boys and
the Baby Blue.
For .instance, if theWolverines
slaughter the Middies it is likely
that Bo will bring the second
and third string in near the end
of the game. This will decrease1
the number of players who will
be allowed to take the field against
Purdue on Monday. If, however,
the Wolverines have a tough time
against the Navy, the first string
will probably stay in the whole

the varsity reserve team.
Though loyal Michigan fans will

I against the Middies, even if it
might make it more exciting, the
relationship seems to bear out.
Last week, after a route of Tu-
lane on Saturday, the Baby Blue

Coach Denny Brown, though,
feels that the score, 17-7, was not
indicative of the play. The score
was only '10-7 until the last five
minutes of the game. Then "they
out physicalled us," said Brown.
The Wolverines were worn down
primarily because some players
had to" play both offense and de-
fense due to a lack of players.
Brown seemed confident as he
predicted, "I think the guys will
be ready to go against them this
Monday." Thanks to Michigan's
ever present powerful defense one
can be sure they will be respect-

able. In the first game against v,
Michigan State the defense lim-
ited the Spartans to only nine . . .,&r"<
points in a 16-9 win. The offense
is another story, however.4
"The offense takes a lot longer
time to get jelled into a unit,"
said Brown. This is the reason for . 4
the lack of high scoring by the
Baby Blue. "Defense is quickness ..
and speed in getting to the ball,"
commented Brown, but offense
is more of a team effort and tim-
ing must be just right."

Sports of The Daily
Cross Country ...
.. doing it yourself
By DAN BORUS
ANN ARBOR, AS EVERYONE KNOWS, is a football town. The
sport captures the hearts and passions of fun-loving students
and rich alumni. And when fall comes, the town turns to Blue and
Maize uniforms, cleats, and funny helmets.
But there are other sports in town, ones which don't have
large popular followings, ones that don't represent the American
type of hero worship. There are sports in which the drive and
desire of one and only one individual are exhibited, rather than
lavish spectacles.
Not based upon glory antics, cross country is a sport of
loneliness and Michigan practioners are among the least cele-
brated and hardest working athletes on the campus.
Cross ,country is a sport built upon human sacrifice and a
measure of the will to improve. The sport is by nature personal
in the loneliest sense. It is you and you alone who will determine
the course of action' and the preparation for the event is a
helleuva lot more than a couple of Schlitz commercials about
galloping to the top of some mountain in Kenya.
And when you reach that mythical mountain, no photogra-
phers are waiting to snap your picture unless it is the Olympics.
When you're in cross country you run for yourself, for the
pleasure of the physical, for the exhilaration and liberation of the
Michigan is not without its outdoor tracksters. While not as
strong as some other members of the Big Ten, it does boast
some fine runners.
Last week in a rain soaked course 'in Toledo, Ohio, Keith
Brown smashed _by a good seven minutes the record of
Olympic Champion Dave Wottle, only to have the mark
disqualified by whimsical officials who claimed he cut seven
yards off the course when he avoided a tree.
"In the beginning of the race, there is always a crowd, at
least for the first few miles. Rather than cut to the inside and
lose time when I saw the tree, I went to the outside, which is
sometimes not questioned," the fleet sophomore explained. He
also added that despite the record book, he was quite proud of
the race he had won.
Running Baas been a long trek for Brown. Choosing the sport
in the sophofiore year of high school, Keith has stuck with it and
when he realized he could excel and improve at it he was
hooked. In fact all the Cleveland Browns (not the football team)
have adopted the practice.
While most members of the somewhat gilded generation
disdain the physical exertion, Brown craves it, enjoying running
along the farms and dirt roads near Ann Arbor.
But it is the individual achievement, the search for m-
provement that fuels Brown. "Every year I feel I have im-
proved," Brown states. "If I didn't I would quit." And he
means it.
Unlike many sports in which improvement is measured
linearly in an upward direction, cross country and long distance
running proceeds forward in an ascending spiral, a "long cycle"
as Brown puts it.
First a foundation is built, 15 miles a day and then shorter
andeshorter with an attempt to quicken the pace. The process is
repeated, with non-beer guzzling fans and coaches checking the
progress with instruments and watches.
European runners reach their peak in their late twenties but
in America, where sports which don't have a taint of violence
lack popularity, the climax of a runner's career must come
earlier as one can't make a living trucking through the trees.
Brown, who has from all indications improved considerably,
under the watchful guidance of Michigan coach Dixon Farmer,
refuses to consider the prospects of an Olympic berth, but should
he try the age old cross country problem remains-"If you blow
a race, you have only yourself to blame."
