Benny Oosterbaan and a sad-
dened band of Wolverines find
themselves confronted with proba-
bly the two toughest foes any team
and coach could face in one week.
More than faced with the prob-
lem of figuring out a way to stop
the rampaging Minnesota Gophers
this Saturday, the Wolverines
must also recover mentally from
one of the most stunning and
heart-breaking defeats in many
IT WAS NOT ENTIRELY the
Northwestern team that beat
Michigan last Saturday in Evan-
ston, but more it was an indescrib-
able lack of spirit and hustle that
often spells the difference between
victory and defeat.
The Wildcats were fired up for
the game even after a bruising
battle with the Gophers the pre-
vious week, so a great deal of
credit must be given to Coach
Bob Voigts and his valiant
The Wolverines, on the other
hand, were not the alert and sharp
ball club that has typified Michi-
gan teams for so many years. In-
stead they continually missed tac-
kles, let pass receivers get by them,
and were victims of two long scor-
ing plays that told the whole story
of the Wildcat victory.

TO BOUNCE back against the
ponderous Gophers appears to be
a task almost too big to ask of any
Minnesota once again boasts
of one of the best lines in the
country. Led by potential All-
Americans Leo Nomellini and
Clayton Tonnemaker, the Goph-
rs held Ohio State to a meager
48 yards on the ground last Sat-
Thus the Wolverines wili have to
sharpen up on their not too potent
aerial attack if they expect to top-
ple the Northmen. Last year they
accomplished a 27-14 victory in
just that fashion by piling up over
280 yards in the air and only 17 on
But besides their terrific forward
wall the Gophers now have a pair
of backs in sophomore Dick Greg-
ory and Billy Bye that give them
that long sought offensive weapon

Michigan undoubtedly will be
in the unfamiliar role of the un-
derdog but with all the tradition
and glory of the little Brown Jug
at stake the Wolverines can still
snap out of their apparent leth-
argy and make Saturday's contest
the "game of the year."

"Most great football players,"
says freshman coach Wally Weber,
"have tremendous natural talent;
we coaches can just hope to take
their speed, coordination and
spirit, and turn out a good fin-
"We can only guide," he con-
tinues, "but we can't inject.
There's no way to put speed into
someone who lacks it or give cour-
age to a coward."
GOOD HIGH SCHOOL players
may develop into varsity stars.
This is not always the case, how-
ever, according to Weber. Bob
Westfall, a third string all-stater,
became an All-American at Mich-
igan. Forrest Evashevski, another
Wolverine great, played no high
Most boys who turn out for his
teams after earning high school
fame find that the going is
tougher than they had imagined.
"Stars," Wally maintains, "are
merely boys whose home town
papers build them up.,
But, he does find a direct corre-
lation between good freshman
squad showings and varsity suc-
cess. Of his best ten frosh each
year, at least five earn varsity
"M's" early in their playing ca-

THIS YEAR'S freshman team,
which he terms as "promising,"
hails from all over the United
States. Weber attributes this to
the fact that the University draws
about half of its students from
Although the freshman squad
plays no games, Weber terms its
TOUCHDOWN . . . Dick "Killer" Kempthorn smashes over into paydirt for Michigan's second
touch-down of the afternoon in last Saturday's game at Northwestern. Making the tackle for the
Wildcats are Don MacRae (66), tackle, and Tom Worthington, halfback. Coming up to aid his
teammate is Chuck Potter (55) Northwestern center. Wolverine in the background is end Harry
Allis. It was on this touchdown that Michigan missed the extra point giving the Wildcats the one
point margin which they needed to win the game, 21-20.
