Not Out As An
'Upset Victimj
'Worse Spots Before,' He
Says; Pleased With Play
In Illinois Game
After the recent Chicago game.
Coach Harry Kipke vowed that the
Michigan football team would upset;
one of the three highly touted Con-
ference elevens remaining on her
schedule, the three being Illinois,'
Minnesota, and Ohio State.
Playing in the rain last Saturday,
Michigan almost realized Kipke's vow,
but the Illini managed to eke out a*
win by the narrowest possible margin,'
7 to 6. A tie would have been an
upset, perhaps not a full-fledged one,,
but an upset just the same. As it'
was, the play of the Michigan line was
well above expectations, and manyE
were satisfied anyway, in spite of the
tantalizing score.
Backfield Needs Work
Yesterday Kipke expressed himself
as well pleased with the work of the
"whole"ine last week-end, if not with
the score. "'The backfield needs a lot
of work though," he said. "We'll have
to work on the backfield a lot this
Asked what he thought about the
Minnesota team, Kipke used one word
to describe them, a word which has
been applied to them quite often this
year, especially after the 48 to 12
triumph over Iowa last Saturday.
Kipke called the Gopher's a "power-
house" team.
"Then you would say that the one
big team you hope to upset this year
is Ohio'State?"
"No," said Kipke, shocked. "We
haven't given up hope of taking that
Minnesota bunch yet. Things have
looked worse than this before when
we went up to Minnesota." Which is1
quite a statement considering that
the Gophers have not beaten Mich-
igan at Minneapolis since 1892.
1926 Game Recalled]
In 1926 Michigan was as much
the underdog as it is this year, but
managed to beat the Gophers, 7 to
6, at Minneapolis as a result of a
fumble which Benny Oosterbaan
scooped up and ran with for a touch-
So Minnesota is still on Michigan's
list. No 20-to-0 victory over Nebraska,'
nor 13-to-7 defeat of Pitt, nor 48-to-
12 submersion of Iowa is going to dis-
courage Kipke. Things certainly do
look bad, but it doesn't count for
too much when you consider the
"Michigan tradition" and some more'
practical aspects: the improvement of
the Michigan line and an apparent
weakness in the Gopher defense
against passes, long ones in particular.
Iowa scored two touchdowns via the
long pass route.
Practicing inside Yost Field House
for the first tirre this season, Kipke
had Regeczi throwing long passes, ap-
proximately 30 yards in length. Ward,
ennings, . Patanelli, Savage, and
Sweet were on the receivingend.
Kipke also had a look at Minnesota'
plays yesterday and with the help of'

The picture above shows Francis "Pug" Lund, ace of the Minnesota powerhouse, starting on one of his long
runs against Iowa Saturday. A triple-threat star in his own right, Lund last year was accorded general all-
American recognition. His play against Michigan last year in the bitter scoreless tie is well remembered
by Wolverine fans. Always noted for strength and power, Minnesota teams under Coach Bernie Bierman have
combined those qualities with speed and deception, as typified by Lund. The picture shows not only Lund, but
also the weight and strength of the rest of the backfield as it forms a blocking unit.

Of course it is true that eight, nine,
or ten top-flight battles each fall are
going to bring more money into the
athletic coffers than are three big
games and a flock of small ones.
And it is also true that schedule-
makers have this in mind.
But is is only right that major
teams should play major opponents
or, at least, opponents who have maj-
or division pretensions. No one ever
seems to think of the opponent in
these "warm-ups" or "breathers"
games. Teams like Westminister, for
example, play a tough game against
opponents of their own size one week
and seven days later are massacred
by a team like Pittsburgh.
The only solution for this dil-
emma is for 'the small schools
to forsake the big gate receipts
which are their only reason for
submitting to a. massacre by a
bigger opponent, and withdraw
into leagues among schools of
equal size. It is the system which
is adhered to so rigidly at Wes-
leyan, where Jack Blott is head
coach this year.
