Opponents Held fTo Four First Downs
y wolverines In Last Three
( amnes This Year
By Joseph Kruger
With the enthusiasm and excite-
ment that attends the collegiate grid-
iron season somewhat dulled now that
the Western Conference schedules
have been completed, a rather sober
estimate of the true value of the de-
fensive strength of the Michigan team
may be accomplished.
Michigan teams have always boast-
ed strong lines, and the relatively
simple attack of the Wolverines has
always depended upon a powerful line
for its proper execution. But this
year the Michigan forward wall has
undoubtedly -proven itself to be the
greatest that has ever represented the
Maize and Blue, and that is closely
akin to saying that this year's Michi-
gan line is the greatest that has ever
represented any school in the history
of modern football.
This year's Michigan team is the
greatest ever coached by Coach Yost,
according to the veteran coach's state-
ment the other night, and the brilliant
success of the eleven is largely due
to the work of the line.
But the line alone was not Michi-
gan's great defensive strength, for
the backfield proved to be almost as
great defensively as the line. The
defensive fullback, Bo Molenda, was a
tower of strength on the defensive,
both in backing up the line, and in
snaring forward passes. In the Illi-
nois game alone, Molenda intercepted
five passes.
Gregory and Gilbert were both
above the average in their defensive
ability. Both men were quick to come
up to the line of scrimmage to tackle
men trying to turn our ends, and both
were adept at covering their terri-
tories when forward passes came their
way. Ben Friedman proved to be a
great safety man, although he was
rarely called upon to prove his ability.
With a line at ldeserves only su-
perlatives, and a backfield that stands
out defensively as the greatest of the
season, it cai rdily be seen that the
1925 Wolverine eleven was the great-
est defensive team of the season, if
not of all time. And the facts bear
out the seemingly sweeping statement.
But four first downs were chalked
up against the olverines in the final
three games 6 the season, and all
three opponeit's boasted powerful
teams, although the Northwestern
game was played under adverse con-
Not once during the entire season
did a rival player cross the Michigan
goal line, and Lewis' place kick in
the early minutes of the Purple con-
test stands as the only three points
to mar an otherwise perfect record.
Twed~y-three first downs were gain-
ed against Michigan by all eight op-
ponents by rushing the ball, while but
12 first downs were made by means
of the forward pass. Minnesota's
great passing attack failed completely,
with 10 passes tried, none completed
and four intercepted.
Perhaps the greatest defensive rec-
ord of the Wolverines came in the
last two games of the season, when
the Ohio State eleven never gained
possession of the ball past midfield,
never getting beyond her own 46 yard
line, while the Minnesota team, which
boasted a great offense, found them-
selves in possession of the ball in
Michigan territory only twice, having
the ball on Michigan's 42 yard line on
two occasions in the closing five min-
utes of play.

Eddie Tyron, Swede Oberlander, And
Wycoff Urged To Join Ranks Of
Professional Eleven
The hand of professional football
which already has received "Red"
Grange, reached out in the East and
South with overtures to Eddie Tyron
of Colgate, "Swede" Oberlander of
Dartmouth and Douglas Wycoff of
Georgia Tech, according to the As-
sociated Press.1
Representing real estate interests
of Miami, Fla., Tim Callahan, former
Yale football captain, has launched a
blanket campaign to sign a team of
outstanding players.
Seven players of the Tyron, Ober-
lander, Wycoff type augmented by
seven recruited from the ranks of
Florida talent, will be assembled by
Callahan fof a series of six games,
the first to be played on Christmas,
day at Miami Beach against a team,
Callahan claimed, would be captained
by "Red" Grange.
Callahan stated that he had not
yet signed any players of prominence
for the Miami team but he admitted
that attractive offers would be madel
to several stars.
'Tyron has admitted that he has
received several professional offers,
but he added that he intends to try
out for the Maroon basketball and
track teams after the football season
closes, and therefore will not enter-
tain any offer in which his amateur
'status is involved.
Oberlander and Wycoff refused to
make any comment refering all in-
'quiries to Callahan.

In the speedball games played yes-!
terday afternoon the freshman liter-
ary students defeated the sophomres
of the same college, by a 3-0 score,
in a league championship game, and
the sophomores engineers defeated
the juniors, 7-4, for the championship
of the engineering colloge. The School
of Education team forfeited to the
Medical school in the finals of the!
professional league.
The members of the winning teams'
will receive numerals. On Monday
the sophomore engineers will meet
the freshman literary team in the
semi-finals of the campus champion-
ship, the winner meeting the Medical
school on Tuesday. The bampus
champions will be awarded jerseys in
addition to numerals.

Coach Fiblding H. Yost, director of
athletics and head football coach
here for the last 25 years, has written
a series of articles for the Christy
Walsh syndicate entitled, "My Thirty
Years in Football," which is now ap-
pearing in several prominent papers.
The story will appear in daily in-
stallments, the exact number of which
has not been determined but which
will probably total more than 50. The
articles will cover all of the activ-
ities of Michigan's coach during his
long career as a gridiron mentor, in-
cluding his experiences as coach in
the East, Middle West, and the Paci-
fic ocast.



Kassel Will Lead I
Mini Next Year
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Nov. 24.-Charles
Kassel, of Melrose Park, Ill., was
elected to captain the 1926 University
of Illinois football team at the foot-
ball banquet held in honor of Red
Grange, here last night.
Kassel has been a regular end on
the Illini eleven for the past two sea-
sons, Rokusek, a flankman led thej
team in 1924.
All basketball teams wishing to se-
cure Waterman gymnasium for prac-,
tice on any of the first four nights!
of each week should sign up now at
the intramural office. Starting De-
cember 1, the gymnasium will be open
for the use of those teams that de-
sire to use it.
The record made in these last two
encounters is perhaps the most un-
usual defensive record in the history
of the game, for major elevens usually
manage to get within scoring distance
during the course of a 60 minute con-

Weather conditions permitting, the
remaining matches on th-e tennis
schedule which were not finished last
spring will be played within the next
few weeks.
In the singles there are ten un-
defeated players who will match
strokes. In the fourth round Shermer,
6574, meets Gross, 9217, while Brody,
3317, plays Davey, 8752. The winner
of the former contest will play Slith,
J36 Law club, and Garber, 4447, will
play the winner of the other match
in the fifth round. Smith, 6367, will
also meet Harnish, 8994, in this round.
IFinkleman has already won the right
to enter the sixth round by virtue
of a win over Utley.
Only three matches remain to be
played in the doubles. The lower
bracket championship was won by the
team of Dunakin and Gilbert, who will
clash with the winner of the Boxer-
Greenspan, 8871, vs. Brown-Utley,
7901, for the campus title. The win-
ning team in the final match will re-
ceive cups while the losers will re-
ceive medals. Every man who earned
his way into the semi"finals will re-
ceive numerals.

and you will find very few that would
turn it down. - Many of those who'
have censured Grange for becoming
a professional football player andl
