Giving the Wolverine football team
a chance to lick their wounds, Coach
Fritz Crisler confined yesterday's
practice to the showing of movies
from Saturday's Minnesota clash.
The one injury that licking or Doc-
tor George Hammond, team physi-
cian, won't be able to fix for some
time is the one sustained by big Joe
Rogers, veteran left end. 'Rogers suf-
fered a fractured vertebra and will
be in a cast from four to six weeks.
This brings to a tragic close Rogers'
football career at Michigan and prob-
ably for all time.
Ends Weakest Department
Probably no other position has
caused Crisler as many sleepless
nights as the end department. Al-
though Rudy Sinejta did a capable job
in replacing the injured Rogers, Cris-
ler has still not decided who will start
at left end against Illinois Saturday.
Despite the 49-14 drubbing the
Irish -handed Zuppke's eleven, the
Michigan coaching staff realizes the
Illini have a potentially high scoring
Coach Wally Weber who scouted
last Saturday's Illini game says they
are a fast light team. Liz Astroth,
Illinois quarterback, is one of the
best passers in the Big Ten, Wally
pointed out, while adding that Don
Griffin, their left halfback, is an ex-
cellent runner.
In spite of the fact that their line
averages only about 185 pounds, they

Zuppke Uses T Formation
According to Weber, Zuppke uses
the T formation, with an emphasis
on man in motion plays. Michigan
has been using this same offensive
formation with more than average
When asked point-blank to pre-
dict Saturday's game, Wally slyly re-
marked, "I have been scouting. Illi-
nois for eleven straight years and I
have learned at least one thing,
Champaign is the home of upsets."
The Illini were able to score
against Minnesota, something Michi-
gan wasn't able to do. Drake and
Miami have accounted for Illinois'
two wins so far this season.

THE ONLY DEAD-SURE THING about the Western Confere:
