Do YouKnow ..

JUST KIirTZING
BY DICK KRAUS
Daily Sports Editor

THIS COLUMN is going to be different. It is going to say that
Michigan and Michigan State are going to play a football game
tomdrrow and let it go at that.
Building up interest for a Michigan-State game is a pretty
unnecessary occupation anyway. A slightly less than mediocre
Spartan team drew some 70,060 spectators to Ann Arbor last
fall to watch a vastly superior Wolverine eleven roll up the
score. This season an untested team operating under a new
coach figures to draw better than 60,000.
All of which raises the question, why bother about ballyhoo?
For more than a week now, the various sports writers have
been probing delicately into the cordiality or rather the lack of it
in the Fritz Crisler-Biggie Munn relationship.
Now nothing is more exhilarating than a good old fashioned
grudge fight, something like the old Brooklyn Dodger-Giant
baseball feuds. But on the other hand nothing is more completely
boring than the tentative "Crisler and Munn might not be sweet-
hearts" sort of thing that has marked this pre-game publicity.
WHAT IT AMOUNTS to is that somebody says "maybe" and either
Crisler or Munn is supposed to overlook the maybe and come
back with a hot answer which merits a reply from the other camp,
which is in turn answered, and then nobody has to worry about
copy until the Wolverine-Spartan game next year.
< There may not be any traditional journalistic naturals about
Saturaay's game, uut there are plenty of interesting angles.
For one thing, it's hardly likely that there are very many
games throughout the nation this week with two non-T formation
teams involved. Munn used the Crisler system at Syracuse last
fall and had reasonable success with it and in all probability will
continue to use it.
Both teams will probably exhibit some T-formation but single
wing offense will be predominant. Crisler said a few years ago that
he didn't know much about the T but that he threw a couple of T
plays into his offense so the Alumni would realize that he was still up
to date.
On paper this figures to be a one-sided contest, but openers
are even harder to figure than ordinary football games-and they
are unpredictable enough. A State upset wouldn't be any more
inconceivable than the 15-7 lacing little Cincinnati University
hung on Indiana last fall.
OKAY, SO IT doesn't seem likely, but it could happen. If Michigan
rolls up an early lead, Crisler might give a preview of his 1948
and 49 teams. Backing up his offensive and defensive units Crisler
can field an all-soph third team that could come along in the next
two years.

Coach Weber
Pleased With
FroshSquad
As he watched approximately
110 charges mauling each other in
a gruelling scrimmage which last-
ed about an hour yesterday, Coach
Wally Weber expressed complete
satisfaction at the progress shown
by his freshman football squad,
since the tryouts first reported
for practice four days ago.
He admitted, however, that all
was not yet as ia should be. Hisj
major criticism was the timing,j
and there were indications of
much time being devoted to mas-
tering that art.
Weber refused to single out any
particular players for too much
praise, becausehe felt that it's
too early to make any such judg-
ment. 'He expressed disappoint-
ment at the comparatively small
number of candidates this fall,
and said that any potential All-
Americans now loose on the cam-
pus who have not yet reported
for freshman football would be
given every opportunity to prove
their worth if they would tryout.

Coach Herbert O. "Fritz" Crisler's football charges wound up
their last day of heavy workouts yesterday in preparation for their
Saturday game with Michigan State.
Although the squad did not scrimmage to any large extent. the
Wolverines were put through their paces by Crisler and his staff.
Punting, both from quick kick and punt formation occupied a
large portion of the afternoon. Crisler used several plays as punters
during this drill, with Wally Tenninga, Jack Weisenburger and Don
Kuick getting away the longest boots of the afternoon. Punt and
quick kick returns were also worked on.
