Michigan Record Against Ohio State

Seven All-American Choices In 20
Years Boast Of Michigan ootball

Camp was Adolph Schultz. He was a
center on the teams of '04-'08 and holds
down the center position on Yost's an1
time first team. Schultz played in the
days when the center rush was so"
popular and it took a good man to
play the position in the center of the
line. The third man to be chosen was
also a lineman-Al Benbrook. Ben-
brook held down right. guard on the

all-American men on the squad at

Ancient foes meet in battle on Ferry
field this afternoon. Wolverines and
Buckeyes have been the keenest of
rivals for the past quarter of a cen-
tury and to them victory has a great-
er significance, a deeper meaning than
the mere winning of a single gridiron
contest. It means revenge-revenge
for past indignities sustained at the
hands of the rival.
Michigan Holds Edge
Although some of these battles took
place many years ago, their memories
are emblazoned upon the minds of
every Wolverine and Buckeye support-
er with a surprising degree of fresh-
ness. Michigan and Ohio State have
clashed 17 times during the past .years.
On 13 of these occasions the Michi-
gan warriors were victorious; on two
others they were held to ties; while
in the last two years, they fell before
the terrible onslaught of the Ohio
gridders. The balance of points scor-
ed throughout the entire series of con-
flicts scales greatly in Michigan's
favor, the Wolverines having earned
361 markers is opposed to 48 totalled
by the Buckeyes. Of the 13 victories
won by Michigan ten have been via
the shutout route.
The first three of the early con-
tests were victories for Michigan, but
aside from the scores no details of
these games are obtainable. Start-
ing in 1897, when the two teams met
for the first time officially, the Buck-
eyes accepted the short end of a 36
to 0 verdict. Following the game there
- was a break in connections for three
years. When the elevens came to-
gether again in 1900, the scales were
balanced and the Maize and Blue was
held to a scoreless tie.
Yost Appears
When the Columbus team appeared
for its annual battle in 1901, it found
Fielding H. Yost at the Michigan helm.
He proved to be a new complication
destined to throw a decade of gloom
over all comers. In the year of his
debut the new coach blanked Ohio
with 21 points, and in 1902 raised
the total to 86. In the following sea-
son 36 points were chalked against
a zero for the Columbus team.
In 1904 the Scarlet and Grey scored
its first 6 points on the Ann Arbor
aggregation, which in turn earned 31.
A repetition of this sextet scoring
proved useless again in the years
1908 and 1909 against the Michigan
10 and 33 respectively for the two
seasons. In 1910 some stimulation
struck then Ohio institution and a 3
to 3 tie resulted. During the two
battles following, the Wolverines an-
nexed 19 and 14 totals, while the
Buckeyes were vainly assaulting
Michigan's goal line.

Michigan severed relations with
State after the game in 1912, and did
not renetw them in 1917 when she
entered the Conference. Consequent-
ly she missed contact with Harley and
his championship machine that sea-
son. In 1918 Michigan turned out
its famous, undefeated S. A. T. C.
team and defeated the Buckeyes by a
score of 14 to 0. That year the war
had greatly depleted both squads, and
the Ohioans, without Harley in the
backfield, were unable to cope with
the Wolverine machine.
Ohio Breaks Chain
However, in 1919 the tables were
turned. With Harley at the head of
its powerful machine, Ohio State, for
the first time in its athletic history,
conquered the Michigan eleven by a
13 to 3 score. Last year Michigan set
out, backed by alumni, faculty and
student-body, to regain her old pres-
tige in the world athletics. Football
was the first sport to feel the effects
of the new spirt, and a goodly squad
turned -out for the team. Angus
Goetz. the star tackle of three sea-
sons past, was elected to the cap-
taincy for the second time and under
his leadership, it looked as though
Michigan would make good her
In the first Big Ten game, how-
ever, Michigan lost to Illinois by a
7 to 6 score, in one of the best played
games in her athletic history. The
next week found the Varsity in Col-
umbus pitted against the Ohio State
gridiron machine. Mchigan looked
like a certain winner for the first half
of the game, having scored a touch-
down while the Ohioans were held
scoreless but in the second half the
Buckeyes were not to be denied, and
after completing their first long pass,
went over for their first touhcdown.
A tie score appeared to be the possible
outcome. However, in ,the waning
moments of play, the Ohioans broke
through the Michigan line, blockead a
punt, and scored the winning touch-
down of the game. Score 14-7.
Teams Even Today
This afternoon Ohio State comes to
Ann Arbor to battle Michigan. The
Conference champion of 1920 is not
represented by a team of the same
high caliber that last year won laur-
els for it. On the other hand Michi-
gan has a powerful eleven. The team
this year is undoubtedly the best all-
around aggregation to represent the
University in recent years. Both
teams are confident. The Buckeyes
have 13 Michigan defeats starring them
in the face, Michigan has two, both
incurred during the past two seasons.
Revenge is the aim of bothteams
and victory is the only way to ac-
complish this end.

Michigan can boast of seven foot-

country that have more than five men
who have received this distinction.
