Michigan head football coach Bo
Schembechler confirmed yesterday
that fullback Ed Shuttlesworth
would be lost for Saturday's con-:
test with Indiana; with an ankle'
injury. Shuttlesworth will not make
the trip to Bloomington.
Shuttlesworth, t h e Wolverines
leading rusher and a possible All-
American candidate, turned the
ankle Tuesday in practice, and the
injury was diagnosed as a moder-;
ate sprain. It is not yet been de-
termined whether he will return!
in time for the Iowa game next
R e p l a c i n g Shuttlesworth as
starting fullback will be Bob
Thornbladh, who started the Wol-
verines' first game of the season'
against Northwestern. "Thorn-'
bladh is capable," Schembechler
commented. "He will do a fine
However, the loss of. Shuttles-
worth leaves Michigan without a

cancy, Schembechler has shifted
junior Larry Gustafson, a wing-
back who missed the Wolverines'
first several games with an elbow
injury, to the fullback slot in prac-
tice drills this week, and he should
be ready to fill in an emergency.
But, to further confuse the sit-;
uation, the switch of Gustafson to
fullback may necessitate the re-1

turn of speedster Gil Chapman
from split end to wingback, in
which case Schembechler will
have to find someone besides
Chapman' and Bo Rather to
shuttle his play calls in and out.
The injury to Shuttlesworth is
not the only one perplexing Schem-
bechler, however. Also missing an-
other game with assorted ailments
will be offensive guard Jerry Schu-
macher, defensive halfback Tom
Drake, and reserve offensive tackle
Tom Poplawski.
Drake, who suffered his knee in-
jury at UCLA after sitting out the
opener against Northwestern with
a thigh injury, is still not back in
pads with the team, and 8pecula-
tion is that he may sit out the rest
of the season and thus retain an-
other year of eligibility.
Further complicating the situa-
tion in Schembechler's already
decimated defensive backfield is
the fact that second-team wolf
Dave Zuccarelli is currently in
Chicago attending his father's
funeral, who was killed in the
commuter train tragedy there.
Schembechler was not sure whe-
ther the senior would be back in
time for tomorrow's contest.
However, Schembechler reports
that all other Wolverines (if there
are any not mentioned already)
are fit and ready for action against
the Hoosiers.



This Week in Sports
HOCKEY-North Dakota at Michigan Coliseum, 8:00.
WATER POLO-Michigan Invitational Tournament at Matt Mann Pool.
Michigan vs. Loyola (Chicago), 7:30.
Michigan vs. Purdue, 9:30.

The Wolverines' Renfrew is also
anxious to see what his team can
do in game competition. "No one
really knows what they have until
they play a few games," he said.
"We've been working real hard in
practice this week and I think
we'll be ready."
Renfrew plans to open with four
line combinations and "see what
develo s from nthere"I

yesterday and should be availableI
for duty in the near future.
Since each season series in
WCHA play is worth eight points,
and the Wolverines play North Da-
kota four times this season, this
weekend's games will count two
points each.
