MICHIGAN FIGHTS HARD
Wolverines Fail To Figure In Big Ten
Title For First ime In
Three Years
For the first time in three years and
for the second time in six years, a
football season has ended without
Michigan's heirg a claimant for the
Big Ten title, but this is far from a
disgrace for in Minnesota and Illinois,
Michigan faced two of the strongest
opponents a team could find and
though coming out loser lost no honor
by so doing.
The Wolverines faced one of the
hardest schedules in the country en-
tailing tilts with Wisconsin, Ohio
State, Illinois, Chicago, Navy and Min-
nesota on successive Saturdays and it
was freely predicted before the sea-
son opened that the Wolverines would
lose at least two games-perhaps
three.
Michigan was beaten and cuffed by
Minnesota's great Thundering Herd
Saturday but never for a moment did
the Wolverines really wilt. Minnesota
must undoubtedly be called one of the
greatest elevens in the country pos-
sessed at least two of the greatest
backs and one of the best lines to be
found anywhere. But even though the
most ardent Michigan fan cannot fail
to admit that the Gophers should
have won, it must be acknowledged
that the Northmen gained their scores
in a manner that might almost be
called lucky.
Minnesota Resorts To Passes.
After being partially held by the
Wolverines on plays at the line Min-
nesota resorted to passing wit a toss
from Joesting to Tanner being com-
pleted to lead to a touchdown. Two or
three plays preceding the pass play
Gilbert was injured and just before it
he was hurt again and time taken out.
Here the traditionally "dumb herd"
showed real smartness and sent a pass
into Gilbert's territory figuring and
probably rightly, that the Michigan
halfback was still "out on his feet."
At any rate the play worled beau-
tifully.
The second Gopher touchdown also
came after the Michigan ine with its-
back to the wall- had stgp4 every-
thing that Mnesotahad to offer in
the way of line plunging. In the three
plays the Gophers gained less than
five yards but a pass to Haycraft in
the midst of a bevy of Wolverines was
completed when it looked like it might
well be knocked down. This play
was somewhat reminiscent of the pass
from Friedman to Hoffman in the
latter part of the Ohio-Michigan game
a year ago and was beautifully exe-
cuted.
'Penalty Proves Turnig Point.
Few in the stadium Saturday real-
zed that the real turnng point of the
game hinged over a five-yard penalty
in the third quarter, butsuch seems
rather definitely the case.. All dur-
ing the first half the struggle was
carried on on about even terms or
with the ball in Gopher territory the
greater part of the time. By stopping
the invaders' attack early, the Wolver-
ines seemed to take most of the sting
out of their thrusts.
In the s'econd half the Gophers
came out with a renewed confidence
and were being rather effectually
stopped when the break came. Min-
nesota gained three yeards on two
plays and passed incomplete on the
third. But here the play was called
back and Michigan penalized five

yards for off side giving the Gophers
third down with two yards to go and
a new lease on life. From here the
Joesting, Almquist, Nydahl offensive
opened uD, never to be checked except
in the shadow of the goal posts. Things
were fairly even after that first score
until a Michigan pass was intercepted
in midfield and the Herd was on its
way again.
Capt. Bennie Oosterbaan was noth-
ing short of heroic in his last game of
football for Michigan and his work
must be stamped as truly remarkable
in repelling the five and six men that
were sent at him time and again.
COLLEGEMEN WNED
Resulting from the success of
their first summer scholarship
subscription campaign, the pub-
lishers of Delineator magazine
will employ during the summer
of 1928, approximately six hun-
dr'ed college men as istudent
salesmen, team captains, and
supervisors; on the most
liberal terms ever offered for
this work.
College men having previous
experience in magazine sub-

ington and Jefferson and Pittsburgh
have been unbeaten.
Missouri's defeat at the hand of the
Cappon-coached Kansas underdogs
places the Tigers in a tie with Ne-
braska, defeated 7-6 earlier in the
year by Missouri.
On the Pacific three teams are tied,
Southern California, Stanford, and
Idaho, but the Trojans boast a record
marred only by a tie with Stanford
while the Cardinals of Palo Alto have
met defeat in the Santa Clara and St.
Mary's games. Idaho has not met any
strong competition.
And so the Southern California-
Notre Dame game at Chicago on Sat-
urday takes rank with the Army-Navy
contest in New York as the headliner
attraction.
Besides these contests there will be
the Georgia-Georgia Tech struggle on
Dec. 3, the annual East-West all-star
game on Dec. 26 at San 'Francisco,
and the Tournament of Roses contest
on New Year's ;Day at Pasadena.

Among the outstanding linemen who
were numbered on the Fisher-coached
team were Brown, Schurrer, Douglas
and Getman, guards, although the lat-
ter pair were handicapped by injuries
during a large part of the season;
Kubicek and Squier, tackles; Crego,
center; and Bovard and DenBlyker,l
ends.
Squier and DenBlyker, who played
tackle and end respectively, were
rated among the outstanding players
on the reserve squad, although they
were not awarded numerals because
of the fact that they did not report for
practice frequently enough.
In spite of the fact that capable
backfield men were not numerous on
the reserve team, Coach Fisher had
dependable performers in Totzke and
Wilson, halves; Hughes, quarter;
Mitchell and Avery, fullbacks. The
former,-a triple threat-man, is the out-
standing backfield man on the reserve
squad.
