FOOTBALL
Continued from Page 3
likened the rivalry to "the Montagues
and te Capulets' saying the game had
all the emotional energy of "domestic
violence.
No game has been more fun to watch
or participate in, and few have been
more evenly matched. The game
became the last of the season for both
teams in 1935, and since 1922, more
than 6.2 million fans have attended its
75 editions. Nine times one of the teams
had a perfect season ruined. Seventeen
times jhe teams decided the Big Ten title
between themselves.
"Anytime you beat Ohio State,"
Michigan coach Lloyd Carn said, "it's
big." And Carr's counterpart, John
Cooper, couldn't agree more. He has

been on of the most successful coaches
in the game for the past decade, yet his
1-7-1 record against Michigan haunts
him constantly. "All anyone asks me is,
'Coach, are we going to beat Michigan
this year?"' Cooper said.
The only rivalry that can compare is
Michigan-Michigan State, one between
two teams composed of players who
grew up playing against and with one
another. Players are lining up against
friends and, sometimes, brothers. More
than 5.4 million have witnessed its 73
editions.
In fact, Michigan boasts two more of
the top seven :highest-attended rivalries
(Minnesota and Illinois). Southern Cal,
Michigan's favorite Rose Bowl rival, is
involved in the other three (with UCLA,,
Notre Dame and Stanford).:The fact that;
the Wolverines and Trojans have large

stadiums cannot be forgotten, but nei-
ther can the success that made stadiums
of such size practical and even neces-
sary.
Success is the key to any rivalry.
Pressure and time help. Personalities
do, too. But success, a tradition of it,
makes a rival the most. Penn State,
which Michigan has played just four
times, is quickly becoming a bitter and
worthy foe.
Across the field on those Saturdays
when they play the Nittany Lions, the
Wolverines look up and see many of the
same things, they will see this .Saturday.
against Notre Dame and later against
Northwestern, Michigan. State,
Minnesota and Ohio State. Long lega-,
cies. Tradition and passion. A piece of
themselves that tells them who they are.
God, is there anything better?
