TENSION HIGH FOR'THE GAME'
1st down and Pasa
By ANDY GLAZER
Special To The Daily
Columbus - The waiting, the intermidable chill-
ingly exciting waiting, has ended. Michigan-Ohio
State, more than a game, yet still a game, hap-
pens here today at 12:50.
The waiting will likely produce an explosion when
these two teams hit the field.
EXPECT a brusing physical battle. Expect Buck-
eye fans to make it tough for the Wolverines to
hear. Expect big plays. Expect .
"We always play well against them," said
Michigan Coach Bo Schembechler, "whether the
game is in Ann Arbor or Columbus."
Will Michigan play well? What about that awful
time two weeks ago in West Lafayette?
THAT AWFUL TIME in West Lafayette may be
a reason for Michigan to play well. Michigan and
its fans were flying high until Purdue knocked all
concerned off their cloud - and sent them scurry-
ing for a silver lining.
The silvery Buckeye helmets. may do.
"I'm elated and enthusiastic about the oppor-
tunity of playing for the championship," said de-
Pittsburgh's, the Orange Bowl looking towards the
Pac-8, the Cotton virtually committed to unbeaten.
No, this game means everything, to both teams.
Ohio State has something to prove, too: a loss to
Missouri and tie with UCLA have soiled the Bucks
INVOLVING one's self in more than three or four
-of these games would seem impossible simply
from tension and strain, but for 13o and Woody,
this is round eight.
Woody leads 4-2-1, and early rumors that Hayes
would retire after this season have been, for the
time being, squelched.
Sa this won't be a "win it for Woody" game-
as if the Bucks need any more motivation.
THE EMOTIONAL factor's importance has been
talked about, written about and guessed at. But
when you come right down to it, it's impossible to
tell which team will be "higher."
That's, something that might well not be de-
cided until minutes before game time.
Excluding the emotion factor, then, who looks
THE BUCKEYE defensive line has drawn much
attention. Characterized as anything from brutes
to raw animals, one imagines Hayes throwing five
pound steaks to them each day.
If you read their press, that is..
If you look at the numbers, you see that OSU's
defensive line weighs out to a 231 average. The
Michigan offensive line 247.
They may be good, but they won't overpower
lena to go
the offensive line of the nation's top scoring team.
MICHIGAN'S defensive line will be hurt as much
as John Anderson is. The punter/defensive end has
sprained ligaments in his right knee. He can punt,
but he may not see much action on defense.
But OSUO has had its offensive problems this
year, and in a tight game Anderson's punting abil-
ity may be more important than his defense.
Why talk about the lines? Because big games
are decided in the "pits." if either team can con-
trol the lines, the quality of the backfield - of-
fensive or defensive -won't matter.
SO IF you can tear yourself away from Rob
Lytle, Jeff Logan, Rick Leach, and Jim Pacenta
for a few plays, watch which way the lines move
in the first quarter.
If they're movir.g significantly towards one side
or the other, you may know something about the
eventual outcome a mite early.
If the lines give and take with no one sided
domination, as has been the case in recent years,
the game could well come down to a late break.
