Outlook Brighter f or Keen's Wrestlers

GRAPPLING PREVIEW:

BY HERB COHEN
As the Michigan grapplers head
into their final pre-season prac-
tices in preparation for their
home-opener with Toledo this
Saturday, they look forward to a
year better even than last, al-
though last season was indeed
adequate in itself.
This year Cliff Keen, Michigan's
grappling coach, even though he
may be short of material in some
classes, has at least experience in
almost all weight divisions.

The day of the prognosticator has arrived.
When a modern sportswriter wants to take a crack at the kind
of thing a guy named Nostradamus used to specialize in, the reading
public smiles indulgently and allows him his bit of fun.

The Wolverine grapplersJ
opened their season with a de-1
cisive 25-9 victory over Toledo.
In this match Space, Stapp, and
another unknown sophomore
Larry Nelson showed up well.
From here the Wolverine mat-
men upset a strongly favored Pur-
due squad, 19-9 although Purdue
was injury-riddled. After this the
Michigan men were quite highly
regarded throughout the remaind-
er of the year.
WITH ONLY losses to Illinois
and Michigan State to mar their
path, the Wolverines entered the
Conference Championships at the
University of Iowa on March 3
and 4 as definite threats to the
crown which had been given to
an inspired Purdue teams the pre-
vious 2 years.
But the cards were just not
stacked in Michigan's favor.

Berra's Face
'Stimulating'
NEW YORK -(AP)- We can't
blame Yogi Berra if he isn't sure
whether he should feel compli-
mented or insulted in being se-
lected as having one of the 10
most stimulating faces because it
stimulates women's subconscious
yearning for the neanderthal man.
Yogi will have to study up on
that Neanderthal business before
he makes up his mind, and from
the pictures we have seen sup-
posedly depicting a cave man
clouting the lady of his choice on
the noggin with a big club we
doubt he will be favorably im-
pressed. Maybe the baseball bat
in Yogi's hands gave the Nation-
al Association of Women Artists,
which made the selection, the
idea.
Yogi can be thankful they didn't
associate him with the piltdown
man, an extinct species character-
ized by a retreating, apelike chin
and thick cranial bones. A bone-
head, no less.

FOR, AFTER ALL, it's great fun to recall his follies when the
season in question has passed, and note the usual discrepancies be-
tween the prediction and the actual fact.
But let it not be said that I fear such eventualities. With
another basketball season in full swing, and popularity polls
fluttering about again like the snowflakes upon my crumbling
window-sill, I forthwith present my own patented, sure-fire, offi-
cial forecast-of-things-to-come for 1950-51:
* * * *
EAST-With enough good basketball players cavorting on Cove-
nant Avenue to make many a collegiate coach turn blue with envy,
Nat Holman at City College looks again like the kingpin of Atlantic
Coast cage circles. His best bet for All-American: Ed Warner. Place
and show: LIU, with the usual fast, tall team that Clair Bee turns
out (and Sherman White); St. Johns, the perennial also-ran in the
metropolitan area.
Outside of New York, keep your eyes on Niagara, Cornell-
among the Ivy Leaguers, and Syracuse.
* * * *
SOUTH-A team which Michigan's Wolverines will face on
December 18th' North Carolina state, appears to be the class of the
section, even without the fabulous Dick Dickey. Everett Case has
another fast collection of imports from the hinterlands of Indiana
and Kentucky.
Possible challengers-Vanderbilt, Louisiana State.
MIDWEST-It's a dogfight between Kentucky and Bradley, with
the latter basketball-conscious school given a slight edge. Kentucky
has a seven-foot plus center named Bill Spivey, who calculates to
give Wildcat opponents the whim-jams, but Bradley's seasoned com-
bination, led by fiery guard Gene Melchiorre, has the experience
and class to end up the season with slightly more prestige.
In the Big Ten, it's another close one, with Iowa and Frank
Calsbeek the best bet at this point, Indiana in a challenging spot.
Look for some surprises--from Illinois' sophomores, and from the
Ray Ragelis-led Northwestern Wildcats.
S * * *
WEST AND FAR WEST-The college with more square feet
of basketball player than any other that's come to my notice, Okla-
homa A & M, should lead the parade in the West, with 6 foot 11 inch
Clyde Lovelette the biggest gun on a team of big guns. Lovelette
prepped at Terre Haute Garfield in Indiana, when that team ran up
32 in a row in the very rough competition found in Hoosier high
school basketball. Phog Allen's Kansas team should again be a con-
sistent winner.
San Francisco will be once again one of the faster teams
in collegiate cagedom, and San Jose State, Montana, UCLA, and
Utah could give several teams trouble.
* '. *
NATIONAL-For both the NIT and NCAA tourneys, it's defend-
ing champion CCNY again, but by a whisker. With Kentucky and
Oklahoma A & M vastly improved, the Beavers will have to work
considerably harder. to achieve the fabulous 'double' again in 1951.
But the boys from the Big Town seem to thrive on hard work,
and unless Bradley and the other major challengers can come up with
an effective defense against Nat Holman's fast break-pivot-fast break
offense, it'll be the same old story again this year.
