Lytle j
By RICH LERNER
Sonny and Cher, McGovern
and Eagleton, Lewis and Mar-
tin, Simon and Garfunkel -
all great duos must eventually
go their separate ways. Such
is the fate of Michigan's tail-
back tandem of Gordon Bell and
Rob Lytle.
Sharing the position last fall,
the two backs totaled 1,850
yards rushing between them, on
314 attempts.
IN A surprising move, Coach
Bo Schembechler has switched
the 195-pound Lytle to fullback.
The change surprised no one
more than Lytle himself.
"I never thought I'd be a full-
back - ever," said Lytle. "I
don't think it ever entered the
coaches mind either. I don't
know what got into them."
Schembechler said the move
was prompted by the thought of
having both Bell and Lytle on
the field at the same time. "I
couldn't stand having one of my
best players standing next to me
on the sideline," Schembechler
said.
A SPRINTER on the track
team, the junior from Fremont,
Ohio may be the fastest full-'
back in the nation, Michigan
State's Levi Jackson notwith-
standing. Lytle placed fifth in
the conference in the 60-yard
dlash indoors.
Schembechler assures that de-
spite Lytle's small size (as far
as fullbacks go), he will be able
to handle the additional duties
that the fullback position car-
ries. "He's one of my most
dedicated players, and can
block anybody, a n y t i m e,"
Schembechler asserted.
The switch was made last Fri-
day, and Lytle has not yet
grown accustomed to his new

The undersized Lytle is pre-
pared to take a beating at the
position. Besides the added bur-
den of blocking and perhaps'
more rushes, it's the fullback
that takes a fake handoff and
dives headlong into a defensive

THE CHANGE allows fresh-
man Harlan Huckleby to move
into the number two tailback
spot, behind Bell. Huckleby
scored 21 touchdowns as a prep
all-American at Detroit Cass
Tech, and set a world age group
record at age fifteen with a 21.5
second clocking in the 220.
In other fall position changes,

been moved to cornerback, and

working at safety.

From Wire Service Reports
Alabama Coach Bear Bryant,
now two-for-two in his court
suits, found plenty of allies
yesterday after his latest vic-
tory in a challenge of squad
size regulations.
A majority of major college
football c o a c h e s expressed
pleasure with a federal judge's
ruling late Wednesday night
that both the home and the
away teams can dress a maxi-
mum of 60 players for a game.
U.S. District Judge Sam 0.
Pointer Jr. applied his ruling to
all colleges in the National Col-
legiate Athletic Association, a]-
though the suit had been
brought only by Alabama. He
threw out an NCAA limitation
of 48 on only the travel squads,
saying that made for unfair
competition.
The judge said he based his
ruling on NCAA bylaws which
indicate that all rules "be in

line with fair competition." should have been the reverse." there for the length of time does not touch the present home
