THE MICHIGAN DAILY
System's The Same
COACH HARRY KIPKE'S rejuven-
ated Varsity took a well-earned
rest yesterday, but certain prominent
sports writers who were surprised at
the success of the "Michigan Sys-
tem" they had so often criticized
could not afford to and hurried to
climb back on thetwrong end of the
T1-.t in itself is bad enough, but
wh is worse they all hastened to
exrlain Michigan's victory with the
idea that the Wolverines had dis-
carded the "System" Saturday.
To those who know and want to
believe, the "Michigan System" was
what Michigan used in looking good!
against Columbia-as Coach Kipke
explained yesterday (and the day be-
fore to several doubters).
First of all the assortment of plays
used by the Varsity seemed to some
new and unusual to a Michigan team.
These were the same plays that have
been in the coaches' books through
good and bad seasons over a period of
years-modernized in part each sea-
son, of course. These were the plays
that Coach Kipke has insisted his
team has had all the time. Any
Michigan player of the last decade
or more should recognize the play
Ced Sweet scored on. The only dif-
ference was the huge hole Sweet had
before him when the play unfolded.
And so it was all along the line. It
was heretofore unseen fulfillment of!
blocking assignments that made the1
old plays look like new ones-and
clever quarterbacking that called
them at the right time, something else
that has been lacking up to now.
They are saying Michigan disre-
garded its usual passing attack for
running plays--in direct antithesis to
the "System." As long as the plays
were in the book, why not run while
running was good and the passing
attack has been unsuccessful all
year? Quarterback Barclay called
many more running plays because
they were gaining ground for once,
while the passing attack had not
worked as yet. Nothing in the "Sys-
tem" against that, is there? Before
now passes have won Michigan hon-
ors; Saturday it was the running
plays that clicked. But both have
been in the "System" all along.
They are saying Michigan wasn't
punting as earl in a series of downs
as usually is the case. Why punt be-
fore fourth down when you are go-
ing places through the line and when
your punter has all the time in the
world to get his kick off when they
are finally needed? "Safety First" is
the theory behind punting on third
down-and that wasn't needed Sat-
urday. If any precaution was need-
ed, it was to keep the ball away from
Columbia's fast-working offense.
Kicking late did that-if kicking on
fourth down five times out of nine
punts can be called that. He who
said Michigan was not punting early
missed the boat there.
