For the third year in a row,
the Wolverine football season
ran one game too long.
In 1969, the Maize and Blue
climaxed an 8-2 regular season
by losing the Rose Bowl. The
next year it was a final game
loss -to Ohio State in Colum-
bus, and last year the Wolver-
ines, undefeated during the reg-
ular season, were dropped 13-12
by Stanford in the thrill-packed
Pasadena classic. So much for
what went wrong.
Now for what went right.
Actually just about every-
thing. Though lacking any
passing attack to speak of, the
Wolverines managed to blow
through (with admittedly some
wheezing) all 11 of their regu-
lar season opponents to become
the first Michigan grid team
since 1948 to finish the regular
season undefeated.
Three times;, the Wolver-
ines ran up 50 or more points
against the opposition. And with
the nation's stingiest defense
against the score, Michigan had
little trouble smashing through
its foes. But signs of the Big
Blue Machine's vulnerability
were seen when they had to
struggle in their final two
games to slip by Purdue and
Ohio State.
The Wolverines will be
hard pressed to duplicate last
year's performance this fall.'
But despite the loss of some
key personnel, M i c h i g a n
could very well find itself in
Pasadena again come Janu-
ary 1.
Gone will be the fleet-footed
running of all-time leading
Michigansrusher Billy Taylor,
whose last minute touchdown
run against Ohio State sent the
crowd into ecstasy.
Gone too, will be Glenn

But Coach Bo Schembechler

The 1972 Wolverines have an
excess of returning talent and
a sophomore crop which should
have little trouble filling in the
holes made by graduation.

all-sports title
Michigan returned to the throne
of Big Ten sports after a one
year's absence by claiming the
All Sports Championship last
year. The Wolverines compiled
one of the highest all-sports aver-
ages in years with an 8.17 in the
12 sports in which Michigan
The title was the Wolverines'
ninth in 12 years.
The MichiganrState Spartans,
who last year dethroned the
Wolverines from the mythical
title, finished a somewhat dis-
tant second with a 7.69 average
for 13 sports. Ten points are
awarded for a first place finish,
nine for a second, eight for a
third, etc. The Wolverine 8.19
average represents an average
season finish between second and
Michigan won titles by emerg-
ing undefeated in football and
tennis. Second place finishes
were provided by swimming,
gymnastics and hockey and the
Wolverines placed third in bas-
ketball, baseball, wrestling, and
cross country.
The most satisfying finishes for
the Maize and Blue were in golf
and track. Although both squads
ended fourth they fared some-
what better than the Wolverines
were expetced to do in these
sports. Lower finishes would
have threatened Michigan's con-
trol of the All-Sports Champion-
Michigan State totaled the
most championships with four,
garnering the titles in both out-
door and indoor track, wrestling.

and Iowa each won two titles.

back Gil Chapman, linebacker

The rushing attack again pro-
mises to be explosive in power
and deep in talent with Shut-
tlesworth, Alan Walker, Chap-
man and Harry Banks.
It remains to be seen, how-
ever, whether or not the Wol-
verines have finally developed
a passing attack - any passing
attack. Last year, first Kevin
Casey and later Tom Slade
handled the quarterbacking du-
ties but neither produced much
of an aerial game. This sea-
son Schembechler's choice will
probably come from among
Slade, Casey, Franklin, or let-
terman Larry Cipa.
In order to put last year's
successful season in perspective,
one must go back a few years,
back to when football around
here was just a cut above the
stuff fdished out in the Ivy

prised everybody including
themselves by going 8-2?

mostly behind the running of
Ron Johnson. But the new
Michigan athletic director
Don Canham was seeking a
more permanent attachment
to success, and in 1969 Bo
Schembechler, from Miami of
Ohio, was named the new
Wolverine head coach.
Few expected any immediate
results from the young mentor,
but the 1969 Wolverines went
into the last regular season
game with a respectable 7-2
record. Of course, no one ex-
pected Michigan to be much
competition for Ohio State in
that last game, just getting
close and insuring a Rose Bowl
trip would be enough.
But the Wolverines had other
ideas. And before the afternoon
was over, Michigan had upset
the "Greatest College Team
Ever" and enshrining them-
selves forever in football lore.
LAST YEAR was no differ-
ent. In the opener against
Northwestern, a battle - tested
defense thwarted the Wildcats
all day to give the slow-start-
ing offense enough breathing
room enroute to a 21-6 con-
Then the Wolverines really
opened up. Taking on three
mediocre teams at home, Vir-
ginia, UCLA and Navy, Michi-

gan romped 56-0, 38-0 and 46-0
respectively. Then it was over
to East Lansing for a show-
down with Moo U., and despite
muffing some excellent scor-
ing opportunities, the Wolver-
ines powered to a very satisfy-
ing 24-13 victory.
