THE MICHIGAN DAILY
by BOB SANDELL
Associate Sports Editor
THE DELUGE of All-American squads has hit the sport pages and
magazines, and it's not too surprising to find that no Wolverine
has managed to make a first team yet with the possible exception of
one or two minor ones.
This was not totally unexpected. A couple of the Wolverines had
a lot of pre-season ballyhoo, but for one reason or another had just
mediocre seasons. Some of the other Michiganders looked like All-
Americans at times, but they weren't expected to by the pre-season
Then there is the inevitable fact that Michigan did not have
a good season despite its ranking of sixth and ninth in the land
depending on what press association you' prefer. It was rated
around 25th most of the season and only a final day miracle put
them in the top ten and is sending them to the Rose Bowl.
There isn't much sense in arguing that one or two of Bennie Oos-
terbaan's lads should have made some of the lists of gridiron immor-
tals, but we can't help feel that it's a shame that the blonde kid from
Milwaukee, Charlie Ortmann isn't going to be an All-American.
None of the teams that have come out so far have Charlie on
them, and one of them, The Sporting News "Quarterback" didn't
even place him on the third team. It seems like an injustice to
somebody that had a chance to break Tom Harmon's all-time
offensive record at the start of the season, and probably would
have in a normal campaign.
Chuck's total offensive figures aren't so impressive this year as
they were the last two years when he led the conference in total of-
fense. But this year's statistics don't reveal the fact that Charlie miss-
ed the better part of two games, was far below physical peak in thrpe
or four others, and had to contend with snow storms in a couple more.
ORTMANN is the victim of circumstance in one sense and maybe
just bad luck in another. Anybody that has been on this campus
for three or four years can't help compare Charlie with Bob Chap-
pus, Michigan's great 1947 All-American.
That's where the circumstance angle comes in. Chappuis had
a really great team back of him, and in 1947 they had a tremen-
dous year, that included the lopsided Rose Bowl triumph. "Chap"
was passing to four or five pass receivers, all of which were at one
time or another considered as All-American candidates.
Along side Bob were brilliant runners like "Bump" Eliot and Jack
Wiesenberger, who were expected to more than share the offensive
burden. Chappuis didn't have to handle any defensive assignments.
either, with a guy like Gene Derricotte around.
On the other hand there's Ortmann who had capable receiv-
ers to throw to only in his sophomore year, and since that time
has been expected to dominate or lead the entire Michigan attack.
Oosterbaan has had to use him as a safety man this year simply
because he was the best one on the team, contrary to what some of
the grandstand quarterbacks might think. Moe important than that,
neither this year's or last year's squad had anywhere near the depth
and all around ability that the 1947 or 1948 teams had.
* * * *
AS WAS MENTIONED before, maybe it was just bad luck. There
is little doubt that Ortmann can do an4 has done everything that
Chappuis did and maybe some things better. But Charlie (dn't have
the team back of him.
Both were great passers, probably just average runners, but
plenty dangerous in that latter regard too. Ortmann's running
impressed Army's Elmer Stout, an All-American incidentlfy, to
the point where he expressed amazement after the contest in
Ortmann had another talent, that of punting, which is the big
reason that the Wolverines are going to Pasadena.
What we've tried to say is if Bob Chappuis is an All-Ameri-
can, then so is Charlie Ortmann. And it's not taking anything
away from Chappuis to say, than our humble opinion, Charlie is
every bit the player Bob was.
Charlie has one more chance to prove that he is All-American
material when he bows out in the January first classic. He presum-
sbly will be in top shape physically and so will the team back of him.
But it won't matter too much what he does. His three year ac-
complishments along with what we know he could have done under
more favorable circumstances this season still stamps him as an All-
American in our book.
He just had a run-in with Lady Luck.

At Michigan last year he

to left wing to give more balance

Keyes chalked up his first of
three "hat tricks" over an abre-
