until the fifth game. He had
870 yards and eight touchdowns
last season.
-Onoforio says of Galbreath,
"He's a power runner who can
break the long one, plus he can
throw and catch."
Junior Jornel Williams as
tailback for the Tigers garnered
100 yards in 30 carries last
year. Hopes also lie in trans-
fer Curtis Brown.
WHILE Buck and Sadich have
graduated, the offensive line
has plenty of reserves. The cen-
ter is Mike Owens, a 4-3, 240-
pounder. The Tigers also boast
excellent pass blocking tackles
in junior Morris Towns (6-4,
255) and senior D. W. Johnston
(6-4, 240).
While the offense poses no
problems for Onoforio, the de-
fense of Missouri tells another
story. Two regulars on the de-

fensive line and both lineback-
ers have graduated. Only the
secondary has proven ability.
The top returnees= on the de-
fensive line include flanker Bob
McRoberts who amassed 7 solo
tackles and 43 assists last sea-
son, nose guard Steve Meyer,
and tackle Tom Cooper.
TRANSFER Curtis Kirkland
will fill the tackle position and
juniors Blaine Hennengsen and
Dale Smith will vie for open
position.
John Austin, Mark Kirkpat-
rick and Tom Helm will com-
pete for the linebacking slots.
Despite the graduation of
Steve Yount and Tony Giller,
the secondary remains tough.
Junior cornerback Rob Fitzger-
ald picked off three passes last
year, while his counterpart,
Kenny Downing had 49 solo tac-
kles.

By BRIAN DEMING
Overlooked amidst the hoop-
la of the Michigan - Ohio State
game last year was the fact
that, for the sake of an extra
point, Michigan State would
have tied for the Big Ten
Championship.
"Big two, little eight" may
soon' be a forgotten phrase if it
was not abandoned after MSU's
classic 16-3 tripping of Ohio
State in 1974. Only a 21-21 tie
with Illinois kept the Spartans
from a share of the Big Ten
title.
AND THIS year Michigan
State has most of the material
back. From a 7-3-1 team the
Spartans lost only seven start-
ers.
"We feel we're going to be in
the championship chase," Stolz
remarked prior to the season
opener with the Buckeyes, "We
base this judgement on the
number of experienced players
we have returning, the number
of regulars back and the out-
standing personnel we'll have
available in skilled areas. It's
the first time since I've been
head coach that we could say
this."
RED CEDAR rooters are also
happy to note a generous Big
Ten schedule that gives the

line or up behind the line -
depending on the situation -
junior Kim Rowekamp (6-3,
240) returns. The Kalamazoo
native has size, power and
speed to go to the ball to
make or set up tackles.
The potential weak links are
at left tackle and right end.
Rich Washington (6-3, 205) fig-
ures to start at right end pro-
vided he avoids reinjuring his
neck which was severely dam-
aged last year. Sophomore Lar-
ry Bethea (6-5, 219) should
move into the tackle position.
He played tight end as a
freshman.
WHILE Pat McClowry will
have no problem handling one
of the linebacking positions
Stolz will have a problem re-
placing Pat's brother Terry.
Sophomore Paul Rudzinski (6-1,
220) should get the nod as he
played well in every game last

season backing up the Mc-
Clowrys.
T h e defensive backfield
should be immensely improved
if only by experience. Stolz
started two sophomores and
two freshmen in the backfield
last year in a defenle that fin-
ished fifth against Big Ten pass-
ing.
Junior John Breslin (5-11,
183) and sophomore Mike Im-
hoff (5-11, 180) will man the cor-
ners while junior Tom Hannon
(6-1, 202) and sophomore Tom
Graves (6-4, 211) will keep the
safety positions. Graves is re-
garded as a superstar in the
making. Receivers coach Jim-
my Raye calls him "the best
athlete I've ever had the pri-
vilege of recruiting."
Of the other half of the team
Stolz says, "We've really
strengthened our offense. Pri-
marily because those men,
many of them, will be playing

Big
for the third year. Practically
everyone will have had two
year's experience,
HEADING the list of offen-
sive returnees will be quarter-
back Charlie Baggett (6-0, 182)
who was second in the Big Ten
in scoring last season with 60
points. He has proven he can
throw, run and direct an offense
with mastery.
Richie Baes (5-9), 183) and
Levi Jackson (5-11, 201) return
to make a very potent tailback-
fullback combination. Baes'
pre-season backup was expect-
ed to be sophomore Claude Gei-
ger. However Geiger was bad-
ly injured in an auto accident
in West Virginia this summer
and will not play this season.
Ted Bell (6-0, 184), highly tout-
ed sophomore who did not play
at all last year due to a kneef
injury, figures to be backup at
tailback.

Spartans home games against
Ohio State and Michigan and
leaves Wisconsin off the sched-
ule.
However the Spartans have
the disadvantage of playing
five of the toughest teams in
the nation the first five weeks
of the season. After hosting
Ohio State, MSU plays Miami
of Ohio, North Carolina State,
Notre Dame, and Michigan. All
but Michigan played in a bowl
game last season.
BUT this year Michigan
State has the material to battle
the best. On defense they should
be as strong as even and an of-
fense the Spartans may finally
have the combination of experi-
ence and strength to put plenty
of points on the board.
Except for two possible soft
spotstthe defensive line shapes

strongest asset. Senior all-Big
Ten endhOtto Smith (6-3, 211)
flanks the left end of the line
while senior Greg Schaum (6-4,

position. Both are highly re-
garded.
