"When the going gets tough,
the tough get going" - an old
coaching homily
The true test of mettle is upon
the state of Michigan's two lead-
ing collegiate football squads to-
day and with that test comes a
good deal of tradition, rivalry
pageantry, and splendor.,

For the Spartans of Michigan
State, sequestered in the Holiday
Inn of Jackson while awaiting the
kick-off, the game, according to
MSU coach Duffy Daugherty, can
turn around their entire season
onto a more positive track.
For the Wolverines of Michigan,
lying in wait in their Ann Arbor
lair, the annual clash for Mich-
igan football supremacy will not

only reveal how well Coach Bo
Schembechler's "boring" running
game can fare against a stingy
defense, but also whether or not
they are on the road to the defense
of their Big Ten crown.
It is an old cliche from the over-
worked typewriters of sportswrit-
erds that when Michigan and Mich-I
igan State tangle "you can throw
out the record book and forget all
predictions." And this little state-
ment contains more than a modi-
cum of truth.
And it is that "more than a
modicum" that is worrying Bo
Schembechler and Michigan stra-
tegists who have submerged them-
selves in deep planning behind
locked gates this past week. That
and the awesome State defense. I
Although on the short end of
three contests, the unit has given
ground grudgingly. Based on the
pursuit ability of linebackers Gail
SClark, the Spartan tackle leader,
and Ken Alderson, the Spartans
boast a fine defensive squad.
Collectively they have the ability
to close off the angles and stop
up the holes. They are aided in
this respect by one very super
safety-Brad Van Pelt.
The Michigan - Michigan State
game begins at 1:30 p.m. EST
and will be broadcast over radio
stations WAAM 1600 AM; WCBN
89.5 FM; WPAG 1050 AM;' and
WUOM 91.7 FM.
Van Pelt, touted highly from the
inception of his career, has made
ths words come true with his
superlative play. His tackling and
play reading ability is what sparks
the Spartan defense and the Wol-
verine coaching staff notes this
Last year, Van Pelt was neu-
tralized with a series of good play-
action fakes by the Michigan back-
field and so most of his tackles
were ones made in pursuit, rather
than ones which halted plays be-
fore they had a chance to develop.
Michigan State is aided in their
quest for the Paul Bunyon trophy,
the trophy awarded to the winner
of the series, by the fact that they
have the biggest and quickest of
defensive lines that the Wolverines
have seen, thus far in the 1972
campaign. Michigan's line play
against UCLA is one important
factor that blew the Bruins Iff the
field. The Spartans however, are
not as light and are quite quick.
SC0IoiiE s

End Ernie Clark comes in for
special praise in this department,
and tackle Paul Seymour has the
uneviable task of trying to move
him as the Wolverines pick and
hunt for vulnerable spots in which
to free their vaunted runners,
Chuck Heater, Harry Banks, and
Ed Shuttlesworth.
"All defenses will give you some-
thing," a source close to the Wol-
verines relates. "Our job is to find
it and exploit it mercilessly."
Since Michigan does not have
the passing attack that other Spar-
tan opponents possess, the job may
be extra difficult.
Quarterback Dennis Franklin, the
Michigan sophomore who has pi-
loted the Maize and Blue all
throughout the season, has not yet
thrown an errant pass into the
hands of the opposition and today
would be a poor time to start. The
Spartan backfield, besides Big
Brad, is chock full of intercepting
Co-led by Bill Simpson, it is the
strongest weapon the Spartans
possess. Spartan sprinters have
nabbed 10 balls intended for their
Franklin has developed an un-
fortunate tendency to aim rather
than pass the ball. Instead 'of fling-
ing the pigskin, the lanky quarter-
backthas attemptedsto feather the
ball to his receivers and this has
resulted in incompletions. If the
Spartans can latch on to a Frank-
lin aerial the Wolverines will have
to really hustle to keep their rank-
Reversing the units does not
really give the advantage to Mich-
igan as the production of the Spar-
tan offense would suggest. The fact
that cornerback Bill Simpson's 18
points is tops on a team confirms
the notion that MSU has been



quite sluggish with the ball.
"Our offensive system isn't
fault. It's our execution," claim
lovable Duffy.
But the Spartan wishbone is no

running performance "last wee
against Notre Dame marks him
dangerous player. After all, th
only type wishbone that has ha
any sort of success against th
Wolverine defense is one in whic
the quarterback kept the pigskin.
With sophomore Dave Brown r
placing D a m o n d Mays, "wh
couldn't get untracked," at le
half, the equation for today'
showdown is fudged. Added to tha
is the presence of tight end Bill
Joe DuPree, who Wolverine d
fensive coordinator Jim Youn
feels "can always open up
But the Wolverines, according t
Young, "will be ready and inspire
as always" for the contest. Wit
Fred Grambau available for play
the defense seems quite awesoni
to the State supporters.
Part of the style of the game wil
be dictated, as usual, by field po
sition. If Michigan receives goo
field placement, then a more va
ried attack can be expected. I
not, then it's the old cloud of dus
routine which has bored some o
the less avid Michigan partisans
Much depends on the kickin
game. Here the teams are quit
even. With Dave Brown and Gi
Chapman at the deep spots, th
Wolverines remain break awa
threats every time the ball i
punted. State's Simpson, with tw
touchdowns through the puntin
route, matches the Wolverines ir
this regard.
Thebooters, as w e 11, arc
amongst the finest in the land.
Barry Dotzauer and the ubitquitou
Simpson are the kickers and thei
averages are hovering around the
mid-40 range with Barry holding
the slight advantage. The result:
of their exchanges could be vital.
The Michigan State press boot
notes that the Spartans will leave
for East Lansing as quickly as
possible after the game. The -Wol
verines are hoping they will by
leaving with the Spartan going
much tougher.

M' harriers finish fifth
in Irish Invitational meet

There are some football games that are more
than just gridiron clashes. There are some foot-
ball games for which you just want to grease up
and kick ass. And this weekend's football card
features two such gritty rivalries.
The Oklahoma-Texas square-off actually started
last night when the two squads' partisans cram-
med the streets of Dallas, celebrating, carousing,
and generally being public rowdies.
When the streets are finally cleared, the Long-
horns and the Sooners settle down, if that is the
word, to some fierce football action in which no
holds are barred. Although Texas holds the series
advantage 42-22, Oklahoma is a solid favorite to
knock the Longhorns for a loop this weekend.
Led by little but amazing Greg Pruitt, the
Oklahoma Wishbone (ironically "borrowed" from
Texas and installed in this same contest two years
ago) has been awesome, rolling up 1,348 yards in
the Sooners' first two games.
The Texas Wishbone is but a bare shadow of its
former self, missing all those great Texas players
who made their reputations with devastating runs
and miraculuous pitches. So Coach Darryl Royal,
always the winner, has come up with something
new (at least in Austin)-the forward pass.
Rookie quarterback Tony Adams connected on
26 of, catch this, 41 passes as the Longhorns tuned
up for today's match with a 27-12 smacking of
Utah State.
Overlooked in the fascination with the high
powered scoring units is the simple fact that both

teams play a fair bit of fundamental defense.
Oklahoma, in fact, has not permitted the oppo-
sition a touchdown.
With the screaming fans anything can happen,
but the Okies have been panning paydirt too often
to forget the habit.
While not steeped the tradition of Oklahoma-
Texas, the second showdown has more impact in
the national rankings, pitting two undefeateds in
a match to the death in Baton Rouge.
Auburn, which has on two successive Saturdays
smashed the holders of the nation's longest winning
streaks, takes on this week's victim, excuse me,
holder of the nation's longest winning streak, LSU.
And Coach Charlie McClendon of LSU contemplat-
ing the fates of Tennessee and Mississippi re-
spectively, is none too happy about the prospect.
Auburn, after losing the famed pass combina-
tion of Terry Beasley and Pat Sullivan, was sup-
posed to be out of the race for the Southeast
crown. But a regenerated defense and a solid
running game have thrust the Bulldogs into na-
tional prominance.
LSU, with its shody performance against Rice
last week in Houston, could be the third straight
team to find that their possession of the nation's
longest winning streak was a week long affair.
LSU will depend upon its passing game and the
riouts fans located on top of the field to hold onto
their record. But don't count out double reverses,
statue of liberty plays, and halfback passes.
There are some football games that are more
than football games.

It was a hot and cold day for
Michigan's cross-country team yes-
terday at the Notre Dame Invita-
tional. Hot because they did much
better than last year, cold because
they didn't do quite as well as
they had hoped. This added to-
gether led coach Dixon Farmer to,
commentrthat it was a very "luke-'
warm performance."
In a field of 34 of the better,
teams in the Midwest Michigan
placed a respectable fifth over'
last year's ninth place. Bowling
Green won the meet followed by
Eastern Michigan, Ball State,
Southern Illinois, and Michigan.
IostNotre Dame finished eighth,
and Purdue, the only other Big
Ten team placed 23rd.
Mike Slack of North Dakota won
the meet with a 23:44 clocking
over a questionable five mile
course. Keith Brown again led

Michigan with a 17th place out of
302 runners and a 24:20 time. Fol-
lowing him were Bill Bolster 34th,
George Khouri 48th at 24:59, Mike
at 24:42, Rick Schott 43rd at 24:54,
Taylor 78th at 25:16 and Jon Cross
84th at 25:18.
C o a c h Farmer commented:
"Everybody ran faster than last
year. There was only a 56 second
gap between our first and fifth
man which is the best so far. But
we didn't feel we did a very good
job. But it's nice to finish so well
in a prestigous meet when you
don't run well."
