Overweight coaches, brouhahas
highlight emotion-packed rivalry

They say it's a little bit like
Dante's Inferno with a bit of
Guadalcanal thrown in. Some
have termed it the most medio-
cre city in the world. But when
the Wolverines march into Co-
lumbus for the seventy-second
gridiron clash between Ohio
State and Michigan, it will be
the battleground for the Big Ten
championship for the sixteenth
time in memory.
The Michigan-Ohio State clash
ranks among the most rivaled
and bitterly contested series in
the land. The Wolverines hold a
definite advantage in the cen-
tury - long brouhaha with 39
victories against 25 setbacks
and seven no-decisions. The
game has produced some up-
sets, some laughter, some tears,
and a hell of a lot of excitement.
And when one considers this
fact, an oddity pops up. Woody
Hayes, the legendary Fat Boy
of Ohio State, doesn't even know
where Michigan is. In need of a
simple geography lesson, Woody
has been known to refer to the
Champions of the West, as "that
school from that state up north."
Associates of the long-time
Buckeye coach don't seem to
remember when the name was
last mentioned in his presence.
This malady stems in part
from the results of the 1969
football clash between the Buck-
eyes and Wolverines in crusty
Michigan Stadium. Called the
"Greatest Upset of the Cen-
tury" and other sundry acco-
lades, the maligned Wolverines
shut down the team that na-
tional magazines had termed
the "greatest college team ever
The super sophs from Ohio,
then know-everything juniors,
found that the Wolverines were
more than ready for them, as
the Victors Valiant clobbered
Woody's boys by a 24-12 score.
Part of the Wolverine success
was the fantastic pass defense.
Six Ohio State aerials found
their way into the clammy meat-
hooks of the Maize and Blue.
Wolverine quarterback D o n
Morehead was equally as bril-
liant, pinpointing passes against

the coveted Ohio defense with an
ease never before thought pos-
sible. Jim Mandich, Billy Tay-
lor and Garvie Craw joined in
the fun and the Wolverines
walked out with the victory.
But although Hayes couldn't
remember the name of the state,
he could remember the color of
the uniforms and the funky hel-
mets, Wolverine great Fritz
Crisler had introduced. And when
'the Mammouth Blue Wave tra-
velled to Columbus in 1970 in
the fight again for the confer-
ence championship, the sulking
Bucks pounded the Wolverines
with everything in Ohio, includ-
ing nuts, bolts, and a forward
Rex Kern and Leo Hayden did
much of the damage as the Wol-
verines found themselves behind
early. Although a Paul Staroba
touchdown narrowed the gap to
10-9, the Wolverines couldn't
stop Kern, who found receiver
Bruce Jankowski behind Bruce
Elliot and the decline of the Wol-
verine's hopes was complete.
Some games for the title were
played under adverse conditions.
For instance in 1950 before the
days of drainage and Tartan
Turf, the two combatants squar-
ed off in Ann Arbor with a cov-
ering of 12-20 inches of snow. The
white blanket hindered play, espe-
cially the offense, and between
the two squads an astronomical
45 punts were exchanged. Hold-
ing their own and waiting for
the Bucks to stumble, the Wol-
verines relied upon solid defense
to eke out a 9-3 decision.
Last year's clash was repre-
sentative of the type of emotion-
al response that the grid war be-
tween the Scarlet and Gray and
the Maize and Blue engenders.
Although no title was at stake
and no Rose Bowl bid was up
for grabs, the emotional peak
was higher than a junkie on
State Street.
104,000 plus fans crowded
Michigan Stadium to see the 1971
version of the closest thing to
guerrilla warfare in the conti-
nental United States. The Bucks,
injured, wounded and. thrice de-
feated, gave the Wolverines all
they would want in the first half,

stopping the running thrusts of
Wolverine running stars Fritz
Seyferth and Billy Taylor. The
pursuit by the Buckeye defense
shut off the option play and last
year the Wolverines were not ex-
actly passing giants.
The Wolverines tallied first
with a Dana Coin field goal.
Other opportunities were halted
were field miscues, some from
the hands of Billy Taylor, who
let two balls roll into Buckeye
In the third quarter, the tide
turned. A Barry Dotzauer punt
was fielded by Ohio State's deep
back Tom Campana and the
denizen of Ohio scooted 67 yards
to paydirt. Only Dotzauer had a
chance to catch the Buck speed-
ster and he muffed it.
But the Wolverines proved
the Big Ten team of destiny as
they drove back late in the
fourth quarter. Larry Sipa, sub-
bing for regular Tom Slade Who
was out with the proverbial hip
pointer, took the Wolverines down
to the 23 yard line. Key plays in
the drive included a 22 yard pass
to Bo Rather, and a Taylor
plunge for a first down.
Here Cipa rolled on the option
and as the Bucks charged him,
he neatly flicked the pigskin to
Taylor who raced in for the go-
ahead score.
But Ohio was far from finish-
ed and it took safety Tom Da-
den and an angry Woody Hayes
to complete the task. On a pass
to Dick Wakefield, Darden loop-
ed in front and hauled down the
Buckeye aerial. Hayes did a
dance and jig in hopes of get-
ting a favorable pass interfer-
ence call. The dance, indigenous
to parts of Ohio, was unappre-
ciated as the call remained un-
Hayes, the irrepressible imp,
decided that stadium decorations
need improvement.
To remedy this unfortunate
slip-up by Don Canham, Hayes
felt that a firstdown marker
would be just the thing to liven
up Michigan Stadium and de-
posited the memento on the side
lines much to the delight of the
assembled multitude.

main men on defense. They put the screws to Michigan's Fritz
Seyferth in last year's 10-7 Wolverine win. Saturday, they'll hope
to lunch on Ed Shuttlesworth, Dennis Franklin and Chuck Heater.

to turn the tide against Wiscon-'
sin? "We'll have to get our share;
of the breaks," answers Renfrew,'
"and then get a few more."
Unfortunately, the breaks didn't
come last weekend while the Wol-
verines were losing a pair to
Michigan Tech.
In the opener, Michigan stormed
the Huskies throughout the first
period but were able to score only
once while firing 19 shots on goal.
The momentum switched in the,
second frame, however, as the
Huskies scored three times in less
than two minutes turning a one-
goal deficit into a two-goal lead.
Seeing all their first period work
go down the drain in the second,
the Wolverines came out extreme-
ly flat in the final period allowing
the Huskies two more goals and a
6-2 victory.
Saturday's 7-2 Tech win was
more of the same. After Tech
grabbed a 3-0 advantage the Wol-
verines fought back within one
only to see a pair of tying oppor-
tunities go to waste.
Michel Jarry just missed the far
corner of the net on athree-on-two
break late in the second period,
while Pierre Sarazin hit the goal
post with a shot early in the third.
"We just don't have anybody
who can come up with the big
goal," assesses Renfrew. "Last
year we had Bernie (Gagnon),"
who scored 35 goals in 34 games.
But so far this season nobody has
picked up the slack.
To hold down that powerful Wis-
consin attack, Renfrew expects the
Wolverines to "forecheck harder-
and better." And he is also hoping
for an elimination of the defen-
sive mistakes which accounted for
a number of the Huskie goals.
The physical condition of fresh-
man goaltender Robbie Moore is
evenmore importantas cartilage
damage to his right knee has been,
extensive. The injury prompted his
removal from a Notre Dame game
a week ago and almost forced an
early exit in Saturday's defeat.

"The knee was operated on over
a year ago," explains Renfrew,
"but hopefully he can hold out the
rest of the season before we oper-
ate again."
Randy Neal remains the only
other Michigan casualty and his
return for the Wisconsin series re-
mains doubtful.

If Martians attacked the Russians,
whose side would we be oln?

There's only one answer:
We're all on this thing together.
Even if we don't get along with some na-
tions. we've got to deal with the great problems
that affect all nations: not Martians but pollution,
population, trade barriers, restricted freedoms
to travel, war.
They're just too big and too urgent for even
the strongest nations to solve alone.
One'way to develop solutions is by getting
together with nations we are friendly with ...
some of our European allies and other autono-
mous democracies.
In the next session of Congress, a resolution
will be introduced calling for a convention of del-
egates from the most experienced democracies.

This Atlantic Union Convention will explore
the possibilities of forming a workable federation
of democracies, geared to finding and imple-
menting practical solutions to our mutual
By utilizing the individual strengths and
talents of each free nation, we can begin to set
things straight on the only world we've got.
We can pullI the peoples of the world togeth-
er by solving the difficulties we facertogether.
The concept of a federation of autonomous
democracies is not new. Beginning in 1939 with
Clarence K. Streit's non-fiction best-seller, Union
Now, it has won the support of such diverse
lepders as Robert Kennedy, Barry ,Gold
Hubert Humphrey, Richard Nixon and
George McGovern among others.

President Kennedy described it this way:
"Acting on our own by ourselves, we can-
not establish justice throughout the world. We
cannot insure its domestic tranquility, or provide
for its common defense or promote its general
welfare, or secure the blessings of liberty to our-
selves and our posterity. But, joined with other
free nations, we can do all of this and more..."
Unfortunately there are people in this coun-
try who are against our simply participating in
the Atlantic Union discussions.
So we need your support.
