"Here's a trivia question for you:
naniO some important Michigan quar-
terlhcks from the last decade or so."
"Well, let's see . . there was Rick

Leach, of course . . . and Dennis
Franklin . . . oh, and Don Moorhead
... and John Wangler is pretty good."
"What about Tom Slade?"
"TOM WHO?"
Tom Slade isn't exactly a household

complain
word, from an average Michigan fan's
point of view. His is a name relegated to
football trivia books, a relative
unknown unless one is a Wolverine
football aficionado.
But Slade did make this mark in his
brief tenure as Bo Schembechler's field
general in 1971. Slade, now a dentist,
was a highly recruited athlete. The
Saginaw All-Stater had a brilliant high
school career as a passing quarterback.
But when he came to Michigan, he was
quickly converted to Schembechler's
running style offense.
HE DIDN'T BREAK into the
lineup (during his sophomore year)
until the sixth game, when he got the
call to face Duffy Daugherty's
Michigan State Spartans. And Slade
gave his coach reason to gloat after the
game, as he led the undefeated
Wolverines to victory number six (they
went on to go undefeated during the
regular season in 1971), 24-13.

"That was my best game," recalled
Slade. "One of my greatest moments at
Michigan was knocking one of the
greatest defensive backs in the
nation-Brad Van Pelt-on his ass. I hit
him one time and he didn't get up."
SLADE'S ROLE as quarterback that
year featured him primarily as a
pulling guard. Michigan rarely passed

thought we would run right over them.
But when we arrived in California, our
practice field was under water-I think
it was purposely flooded. It rained 11
out of the next 14 days-so we practiced
in gymnasiums. We sort of got fat and
lazy, and Stanford went out and beat us,
13-12. It was still very exciting,
though."
TODAY, SLADE practices dentistry
in South Lyon and Fenton. He also is a
part-time student at the University
(he's working on his M.S. degree)
because he plans to teach in the Dental
School. It adds up to a very demanding
schedule for the full-time practitioner,
but he manages.
"My main responsibility is to my
patients," he said. "I have to miss a
class sometimes-the University un-
derstands, however. I'm a dentist fir-
st."
But Slade hasn't lost touch with
Michigan football. He provides color
commentary for WUOM play-by-play
man Tom Hemingway. He still has the
utmost respect for the University.
"I've been a fortunate son-of-a-gun. I
wouldn't trade my career for any
amount of money. Bo Schembechler is
the best thing going here, and even
though I played only one year in the
limelight, I've enjoyed it all. You'll
hear no bad rap on Michigan from me."
That, according to Slade, is the bot-
tom line.

the football-it wasn't necessary; the
running game was good enough to
trample most opponents by30 or 40
points. So Slade often was a key blocker
in this fine running attack.
"We had more great players on that
team than any in Michigan history, I
think," said Slade. "There was Tom-
Darden, Glenn Doughty, Reggie
McKenzie, Paul Seymour, Billy Taylor,
Dave Gallagher-the list is endless.
"I WAS JUST fortunate to be along
for the ride. I happened to be in the
right place at the right time. I didn't
play my junior or senior years-I was
fifth string-but I never quit. It was just
fun to be a part of the whole thing."
Slade is also proud of his par-
ticipation in the Rose Bowl, and has
some peculiar memories of that game.
"We were undefeated going in and
