secondarydefense without the aidj
of any interference. With the ex-
ception of Miller the Michigan
backfield turned in a very poor per-
formance of tackling during the+
whole game.
Berkowitz carried the major bur-
den of the Wolverine's ball toting
and has to his credit a 40-yard riun,
the longest to be made' by 6 Michi-
gan player, which paved the wayy
for the lone Michigan score early
in the first half.
The Illinois attack seen 'fd to be
built about one Hall', two-year VaV-
sity veteran, who was respobnsible
for two of the three Illinois touch-
downs. The speed of the Tndiana
backfield was especially effective
behimd the five man interference
and the whole combination worked
like a charm against Michigan be-
cause the Wolverine defensive
halfbacks failed to come up when
the ends -forced the runs or were
weak on tackling if the runner cut
through tackle.
The Wolverine line was eompara-'
tively better than the backfield but
the presence of such players as1
Langhorst and other Varsity vet-
erans in the Illinois forward wall
nullified their effort.
Following the Michigan score the
wolverines kicked off and tUsemani
carried the ball through to Michi-;
gan's 25-yard. line. Useman was un-
doubtedly intended for the hurling
end of a barrage of Illinois passes
at the beginning of the game, but
after the Michigan secondary de-,
fense covered the receivers so well
that he was forced to run with the.
ball and lose ground several times
the Illini gave up their aerial at-
That the Illini were unusually
certain of victory after the first
few minutes of play may be seen
from the fact that they ran the
ball on the fourth down more often
than not and on five occasions lost
the ball on downs outside of their
20-yard line.
