THE MICHIGAN DAILY
By RICK BONINO
The offense sells the tickets, goes the old
gridiron adage, and the defense wins the ball-
The fans in Madison this week proved the
first part of that all-too-often quoted saying.
The University of Wisconsin somehow ran out
of student football tickets for Saturday's home
opener with Michigan before it ran out of stu-
This unprecedented ducat demand is largely
due to the fine Badger offense, which ranked
second only to awesome Ohio State in confer-
ence scoring and total yardage last season.
WISCONSIN'S ATTACK, although sound, ap-
pears quite predictable-Marek, Marek and
more Marek. Balding Badger Billy, who ranked
first in Big Ten rushing last season and third
in the nation, heads a ground crew that returns
last year's top five rushers.
Marek, a good bet for Wisconsin's first All-
American since 1962, has also been touted as a
possible Heisman Trophy winner. If he can re-
peat last season's performance-1224 yards at
5.9 per crack while pacing the nation in scor-
ing--he should at least be in the running.
HOWEVER, the 5-8 tailback often falls prey.to
injuries. Marek missed all or part of three
contests last season, including over three quar-
ters of the Michigan game.
Though he suffered a collarbone bruise in
practice two weeks ago, Marek returned to this
week's contact drills.
"Any team in the Big Ten can beat me up
physically," Marek admitted at a pre-season

Marek's backup, sophomore Mike Morgan,
comes off a 466-yard debut including two
hundred-yard games and eight touchdowns.
WISCONSIN'S TOP two fullbacks form an
equally impressive tandem. Senior Ken Starch
gained 643 yards in 1974 and barely trailed
Marek with 5.8 yards per carry.
Junior Larry "Sweet C" Canada played often
enough to garner 358 yards last season and
adds blocking force with his 6-2, 227 frame.

The vaunted Michigan defense will be put to the test tomor-
row when it squares off against the equally imposing Wiscon-
sin offense at Madison's Camp Randall Field. Middle guard
Tim Davis (56), shown here with the graduated ,Tom Drake

being counted on to thwart the Badgers.

With the Big Ten football
s e a s o n rapidly approaching,
every football fan in the area
is trying to size up the real
contenders. In fact, even Jimmy
the Greek is second-guessing.
Ohio State is probably the
safest bet, next to Michigan.
The Buckeyes' chances rest on
two "name" players-quarter-
back Cornelius Green and tail-
back Archie Griffin. Their run-
ning ability is well known in the
Big Ten, and big things are ex-
pected of them this year.
But with the loss of three
men on the offensive line,
that running game may be
hampered unless Hayes can
find adequate replacements.
Defensively, the Buckeyes suf-
fered through graduation. Hav-
ing lost eight starters. inclding
Van Decree, Pete Cusick and
Neil Colzie, the Buckeves will
be fielding a lot of unknowns.

Buonomici, and linebacker Ken

eyes' strength too quickly, one

name Tom Klaban comes to
mind. He's that Czechoslovak-
ian field goal kicker.
There are a couple of black
marks -against the Buckeyes
which could be their downfall.
They play road games at East
Lansing and Ann Arbor, and in
the close matches that both
games shape up to be, the home
team advantage will be a heavy

State will rely heavily on
quarterback Charlie Baggett
to lead them to the promised

965 yards and scrambled for
11 touchdowns. He will be the

do this year, despite any im-
provements they may have
Fullback Levi Jackson will re-
turn to give the Spartans a well
balanced running attack, and as
Ohio State will attest, a poten-

The offensive line will have
