LAST LOSS AT HOME:
20-20 Hindsit '69 gam
By JEFF SCHILLER --
Earl plays crucial ..
HE .. n ;Saturdays game
WHEN WISCONSIN'S Mike Morgan returned a punt 60 yards to;
the Michigan 13 yard line in the third quarter of the 1975;
season opener, the veteran Wolverine defensive line moved in and
stopped the Badgers cold.
But when the more inexperienced Michigan secondary failed'
to keep Stanford pinned back on its own 2 yard line in third
quarter action the next week, the pass defenders seemed to
suffer a letdown and were unable to contain Mike Cordova's
aerial attack for the rest of the game.
Momentum in a football game turns against a team when its
players make unfortunate mistakes and are unable to shrug them
off. When Bo Schembechler speaks of a lack of senior leader-
ship thus far, he is bemoaning the failure of someone to take
charge and prevent adversity from feeding upon itself.
Without such leadership, a few key mistakes can reverse
the trend of a whole game. And, more importantly, several
games of this type may start a team on a slide that will last
throughout a season.
That's why the Missouri game this Saturday is so important
to the Wolverines. Don't believe for a minute that this is only a
non-conference game-that Michigan can loose and still come back
to win the Big Ten championship. If they don't win this week-
