By JOHN KERR
Take a Michigan student out of Ann
Arbor and drop him into Auburn, Ala.
and that student might think he had
traveled back to the 1930's.
Auburn is that different. It is almost
the complete opposite of Ann Arbor.
THE ONLY time you'd find any
protests on the Auburn campus would
be if the school cafeteria stopped ser-
ving apple pie.
Ed Hinton said it best in an article in
the Atlanta Constitution in 1978. "This
may be the most God-and-Country
major university feft in the United
States. The students once burned their
yearbooks in a bonfire when they
discovered they contained material
they considered un-American. You'll
never see a braless girl on Toomer Cor-
ner. The three barber shops on the
block do a good business and always
have. The men of Auburn get their hair
cut."
Wow. That doesn't sound a lot like
State Street.
BUT HERE is one similarity between
Auburn and Michigan-football. Both
schools take their football very
seriously, and both the Wolverines and
the Tigers play a similar brand of the
game.

'(Auburn) may be the most God-and-
Country major university left in the United
States.'
-Ed Hinton
in the Atlanta Constitution

The Auburn offense is about as ex-
citing as Michigan was in the mid-70s.
They run the ball a lot. Quarterback
Randy Campbell averages just 12
throws a game.
The Tigers run out of a wishbone, an
offensive formation that has one
fullback and two tailbacks. It gives the
quarterback more options and is a thing
of beauty to watch when executed
properly. When it isn't, it is very
dangerous and prone to fumbles.
Auburn, however, executes it
properly. The Tigers have coughed the
ball up just 10 times this season.
IN THE backfield for Auburn are the
two halfbacks, Bo Jackson and Lionel
Jones, probably the best tandem in the
nation. But that's not all. Fullback
Tommie Agee can also pick up yar-
dage. When Maryland tried to key on
Jackson and James, Agee picked up

over 200 yards.
The Wolverine defensive line will
have its work cut out for it as it goes up
against Auburn's offensive line, which
averages 256 pounds per man.
The Tigers defensive line is almost as
big. Left tackle Doug Smith, at 6-6, 270
pounds, is second on the team in tackles
with 84, and nose guard Dowe Aught-
man (6-2, 269) is right behind him with
79. To show what kind of men play for
Auburn, Aughtman says one of his
favorite pastimes is riding around in a
pickup truck while chewing tobacco. He
probably was pretty upset when the
Dukes of Hazard got cancelled.
UNFORTUNATELY FOR Michigan,
the Auburn defense is very good against
the run, giving up just over 100 yards a
game on the ground. Linebacker Greg
Carr made sure not many running
backs got past him as he made 122
tackles on the year.
The secondary is a bit more
vulnerable, allowing opposing quarter-
backs to complete 55 percent of their
passes. The Tigers gave up just over 200
yards a game in the air.
Michigan coaches have just begun to
look at the Auburn films and have no
idea of what kind of game plan they will
come up with for the third-ranked
Tigers.
Auburn coach Pat Dye wasn't even
thinking about the Sugar Bowl last
week since his team still had to play
Alabama. But now the game's over and
Dye will get down to business.
And you know Dye won't have to
bother with telling his players to get
their hair cut.

Facts you probably didn 't
know about Michigan and
AuburnHfootball players:
W HEN THEY select
Michigan as their college,
Wolverine football players are asked
to fill out a biography. Included in
that questionaire is a question
asking if the player has any super-
stitions pertaining to football. The
following are some of the better an-
swers.
Quarterback Dan
Decker-'"'Listening to loud rock and
roll previous to games."
Middle guard Billy
Harris - "Shake archeerleader's
hand before a game."
Defensive back Dieter
Heren-"Eating steak before a
game."~
Wide receiver Ken
Higgins-"Wore same t-shirt under
pads and same pair of socks every
week."
Defensive back Ed
Hood-"Wearing socks low."
Defensive tackle Mike
Krauss - "A good luck kiss from
mother or a girlfriend."
Linebacker Andree McIntyre - "I
feel I have to wear a blue bandanna
every game."
Quarterback Russ Rein-"My
mother punches me in the arm
before every game."
Defensive lineman Jack
Walker-"Carry pictures of
nephews in side of socks."
And, as anyone knows, star
athletes have all kinds of
memorable experiences. For most
high school standouts about to enter
the college world, these memories
are of state championship games or
thrilling victories over the
crosstown rival. But when some
Wolverine players filled out their
biography before entering

Ron Pollack

Michigan football

Michigan, the memorable experien-
ces they listed were a bit more
unusual.
Linebacker Mike Boren -
"Meeting Woody Hayes after he was
fired."
Defensive back John
Ferens-"Greatest sport memory
was a 50-yard run for first career
touchdown in peewee football (sixth
grade)."
Wide receiver Mike
Sessa-"Anyone beating the Dallas
Cowboys."
Quarterback Steve Smith-"When
I kissed my first girl and second and
third, etc...."
Krauss apparently was thinking
along similar lines when he listed as
his hobbies, "Rollerskating,
jogging, kissing."
Perhaps the most uncommon hob-
by on the Michigan squad belongs to
offensive lineman Rick Frazer who
listed the "restoration of a 1940
panel truck" as one of his interests.
But when is comes to hobbies, the
Auburn squad more than holds its
own.
Split end Clayton Beauford and
quarterback Randy Campbell list
dating as a hobby.
Free safety Nat Ceasar-Likes to
disco roller skate.
Cornerback Chuck Clanton - likes
to play putt-putt golf.
Noseguard Harold
Hallman-Hobbies are running,
karate, and "anything with a lot of

contact."
Donnie Humphrey-Likes to wat-
ch soap operas on television.
Offensive guard Jeff Lott - The
team comic. He is said to be great at
Rich Little-type impressions of
coaches and teammates.
Defensive tackle Joe Man-
ning-Lists watching TV as one of
his hobbies.
Defensive tackle Doug
Smith-Likes to deepksea fish. He
once caught a six-foot shark.
Halfback Terry Walker-Lists
eating as one of his hobbies.
Noseguard Dowe Aught-
man-Likes to ride around in a'
