Let's face it. Iowa's Hawkeyes,

4-1 record, just don't make itc

overall 8-0) defending Big Ten
champions. Now, maybe if Wol-z

But look at this! The startingf

between Michigan and Iowa indi-

the game at Indiana, but is dress-
ed, although he probably won't
see action.
And on defense, senior middle
guard Greg Ellis didn't even make
the trip, as he is sidelined with a
hip-pointer injorv sffered in the
Indiana game. Walt Sexton, a 5-11,
210 pound junior, will step into
that starting role.
The defensNe depth was fur-
ther decimated by the loss of half-
back Linwood H irden who fell
victim to a thigh injury.
And, of course, Michigan has
been playing with its "second-
string" secondary all year, after{
injuries caused the losses of ex-'
pected starters Tom Drake, Dave
Elliott, and Geoff Steger.

in that most important defensive
statistic, points per game allowed.
Coach Jim Young's charges lead
the nation in that category, hav-
ing given up a mere 4.6 points in
the average Saturday afternoon
On the other hand, the Michigan
offensive game, which seemed to
reach its peak in the 42-0 shellack-
ing of Minnesota, fell off drastic-
ally against the Hoosiers. And
Iowa's defense has been quite con-
sistent, much more so than the
preseason pollsters had predicted.

Well, then, they're off! If the
Wolverine gridders did indeed lis-
ten to their coaching staff this
week, how even the last place
teams are not always going to be
as much a pushover as everyone
thinks, perhaps they'll put togeth-
er a good game and beat the pants
off the Hawkeyes. They're cer-
tainly capable of it.
IF, however,tthey are caught
looking ahead to the two biggies
yet to come, Purdue and Ohio
State, anything can happen as Bo
will surely testify.
In that sense, how well Michigan
does today has already been de-
termined. Rightfully, it should ap-
proach a walkover. The Wolverines
are favored by three touchdowns.
A Dad's Day crowd of 42,000 might
expect a surprise. If Michigan is
ready, they should be sorely dis-
