Parity

Gridders find no humor Ur

By ALAN FANGER
They were a bunch of brainy kids
going out to play football as a hobby.
The chemistry and economics majors,
the future doctors, lawyers and accoun-
tants were just expanding on what was
once an extracurricular activity in high
school.
They were considered the best
comedy act east of "Three's Com-
pany", sporting an offense that
celebrated each first down as if it were
a coronation and a defense that resem-
bled a thin membrane. The act was
ready for its sixth year, following past
defeats of 69-0, 38-7, 63-20, 59-14, and 49-

7.
But something mysterious happened
in Michigan Stadium yesterday. In two
hours and 28 minutes, the jokesters
vanished. Nobody among the crowd of
100,824 was laughing. The troupe of 95
Northwestern football players was get-
ting serious. And they were serious to
the point of nearly creating tragedy
from what was becoming an annual
binge of hilarity.
The Wildcats' show was not of the
spectacular variety. From the begin-
ning, said coach Rick Venturi, the
game plan was "very, very simple. We
were going to hammer away at them
(Michigan) and keep as much ball
possession as we could."

Being the brainy sorts Venturi's
players are, such a plan was followed
nearly to perfection. The offense direc-
ted most of its plays toward the inside,
via either runs by fullback Dave
Mishler or short passes from the arm of
quarterback Mike Kerigan. The
statistics bore out his strategy: Mishler
carried 23 times and gained 82 yards,
mostly on gains of three or four yards,
while Kerrigan completed 12 of 19
passes for just 98 yards.
When the Wildcats needed enough
yardage to maintain their long drives,
particularly in the fourth quarter, they
picked up the necessary yardage. They
converted four of five fourth-down
situations, although the Wolverines

aided the cause by committing costly
penalties in two of those instances.
"I told the kids from day one that we
would be facing a lot of fourth-down
situations, and that we would go for
them," said Venturi, explaining his
refusal to punt when faced with short
yardage. "We felt we could keep
knocking out first downs and keep
possession of it."
Both Venturi and right guard Bill
Draznik thought their team could at-
tack the middle of the Michigan defense
and maintain successful drives. Draz-
nik added that the Wildcats' substantial
size advantage along the line figured
prominently in Northwestern's con-
sistent offensive performance.
"I don't think Michigan had that
superior a defense," said Draznik, one
of only six seniors who started for the
visitors. "I knew we would be able to
move against them, but I was a little
surprised myself . .. I didn't think we
could move so well on them."
The fireworks, and the dreams of
turning the former comedy of errors in-
to high-fashioned drama, were dashed
when Andy Cannavino grabbed hold of
a fourth-down Kerrigan pass like a
father who had found his long-lost son.
But Venturi picked up some
desperately-needed pride for his team
along the way, plus a few converts to
the belief that the Wildcats represent
something beyond buffoonery on the
gridiron.
"Right now we're just feeling like a

better team," said the third-year
coach. "We felt bad after last week (35-
9 loss to Illinois)-our pride was hurt
down there (Champaign). We're star-
ting to gain the confidence we really
need to be successful.
"The thing I liked about this week
was that we went after it. There was no
choke city or any of that. Remember,

we're still learning-and I think we've
played six of eight good quarters this
year. This is a good outcome for the
tean and for the Northwestern football
program in general."
Draznik agreed. "We've been ready
to win for four years," he said, fighting
back emotion. "This team was jacked
up so high.. . we were ready to be
anybody.
"There's no reason for us to be down.
We're going to win some games this
year and I think we proved that we can
do that today."
