THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Inu ug / [Ue
With MURRAY GRANT
ALTHOUGH Michigan and Wisconsin have been football rivals for over
50 years, Saturday's renewal of the series marks only the 20th time
these two teams have met.
The last time the Wolverines and Badgers met was in 1944 when a'
Michigan team studded with Naval trainees defeated the Badgers, 14-0.
Two long runs, one of 86 yards by Bill Culligan, who is this year
back with the Wolverines, and the other, a 56-yard jaunt by nine-
letter winner Don Lund provided all the points the Wolverines needed.
The series itself started in 1892 when the beeftrusters of Wisconsin
met the new football squad of Michigan and fell by the score of 10-6. And
then in the next two meetings the Badgers turned the tables in wild and
wooly games by scores of 34-18 and 17-5.
The series resumed again in 1902, and the great Michigan teams
of the turn of the century under Fielding H. Yost downed the Madison
contingent four years in succession by scores of 6-0, 16-0, 28-0, and 12-0.
The rivalry then suffered a 16-year lapse as Michigan failed to schedule
the Badgers. In 1921 when the series was renewed, Wisconsin and the Wol-
verines played to a 7-7 tie, the only one in the history of the series.
But from then until 1928 the Maize and Blue notched seven con-
secutive victories over the Red of Wisconsin. This streak was featured
by the thrill-packed game of 1923 in which the Wolverines scored a
In 1928 the Badgers scored a 7-0 victory over the Wolverines, and again
in 1934 Wisconsin notched a 10-0 victory over the hapless Michigan squad
of* that season.
But not since then have theBadgers succeeded in breaking into
the win column as the Maize and Blue triumphed in 1935 and again
in 1943 and '44.
Thus the Wolverines will be looking for their fifteenth victory over
the Badgers, but more, they will be looking for the opportunity to move
into a position for their first undisputed Western Conference football cham-
pionship since 1932.

Hildner on second down, and Chuck
Campbell made the conversion which
proved to be the winning margin.
Greene House came back from

LEN FORD - Michigan's lanky end whose pass-catching and defen-
sive play have been outstanding features of the Maize and Blue line
MAKING 'EM COUNT:
Jim Brieske's Placements Make
Him Second in Michigan Scoring
By JERRY ALEXANDER
Len Ford, the big 212-pound end
on our current Wolverine eleven has
won himself a favored spot with the
grandstanders through his play so
far this season..
It's a well deserved place too, for
Ford's figure can usually be seen
right where all the action is, boring in
for those jarring tackles he's so well
known for. In fact the times are
numerous when he has tackled oppos-
ing backs from behind who were on
their way for long gains.
Ford Is Pass Catcher
Besides being such a bulwark on
defense, Ford has often been in the
offensive spotlight too. To date he's
caught 11 passes, the best of which
was that one handed stab he made in
the Indiana game, leaping high in
the air to grab the pigskin with one
hand from the two backs guarding
him in the end zone.
On being questioned about those
misdirected laterals that terminate
some of the pass plays, Ford admit-
ter 'that he was solely to blame; It
must be added, however, that on sev-
eral of those plays, the ball was de-
liberately punched out of his hands, a
thing the ordinary spectator misses
quite readily. That was the cause of
most of the 12 fumbles the boys were
responsible for in the Illinois game.
This business of punching at the ball
is a favorite pastime of the big end
himself and has resulted in several
opposition fumbles this year.
Davis to Folsom, Touchdown!
As passing is used these days, it
can be divided into two main types
of play. One, in which the thrower
heaves the ball to a spot expecting
the receiver to be there, and the sec-
ond kind where the passer has op-
tional choices of whom to pass to. In
connection with the former, Ford re-
counted an incident concerning the
Army game. He and some of the
linemen were smearing Glenn Davis
on an attempted pass, but "Mr. Out-
side," in desperation, heaved the ball,
Neither cold, nor darkness, nor the
hilly turf of the University golf course
could stay the 42 distance runners of
the Michigan track team from the
swift completion of a three and one-
half mile intra-squad handicap
cross-country jaunt yesterday, won
by the seven-man "Gold" team.
Dave Williams' 17:31 clocking gave
him first placeson the basis of best
time, in the hill-and-dale run which
wound up the squad's fall outdoor
practice sessions. Don Queller had
the second best time, 17:40, with Herb
Barten thfrd. Those who chalked up
the top 10 clockings were awarded
Coach Ken Doherty commented the
squad's composite showing as "ex-
cellent," singling out Williams' per-
The winning "Gold" team was com-
posed of Capt. Birdsall, Williams, Jus-
tin Williams, Rog Kessler, Ross Wil-
lard, Fred Stolliker, and Dean Voegt-
len, all of whom received theatre
passes for their efforts. There were
six teams in the competition.
Since the race was a handicap af-
fair, the first man to actually cross
the finish line was 0. W. Smith, fol-
lowed by George Shepherd and Bill
Bolliger. The first ten men to find
their way through the dark and cold
to the end were awarded University

Although his hands have never
touched the pigskin while playing
for Michigan, "automatic" Jim
Brieske's well-trained toe has chalked
up enough points to give him a sec-
ond place tie for totalvpoints scored
among his fellow Wolverines, and
place him tenth in the Big Nine this
While he was still in grammar
school in his home town, Harbor
Beach, Michigan, Brieske set out to
learn the art of booting the pigskin
between the uprights. In the high
school circuit he not only played his
favorite post at center and kicked the
extra points, but also saw duty at
the end and fullback spots.
Robinson Holds, Brieske Kicks
Ever since Brieske came to Michi-
gan, Don Robinson has been the only
player to hold the ball when he at-
tempted his many important points
after touchdown. Brieske says that
Robbie has never fumbled the ball
or failed to place the pigskin in the
right spot. In Michigan's 32-20 up-
set win over Notre Dame in 1942,
Brieske and Robinson pulled a fake
field goal attempt on the Irish,/with
Robbie taking the ball over for a
Brieske wound up the 1942 season
leading the Western Conference in
conversion attempts with 15 out of
16 and posted a grand total of 26
out of 29 for the season. He was in-
jured in spring practice in 1943 and
didn't see any action during the
gridiron campaign that fall.
