Fast, Tall 'M' Hoopstens
Ready for New Season F

Fast and tall will be the key ad-
jectives that will be employed in
describing Michigan's "new look"
basketball team of 1951.
The eighteen man varsity squad
that has been toiling for five
weeks under the tutelege of Head
Coach Ernie McCoy and Assistant
Dave Strack has been primed for
a streamlined race-horse offense.
It seems that at last the Michi-
gan basketball strategists have
succumbed to the nation-wide pen-
chant for speed on the hardwood.
* s
THERE IS A good reason for
the change. This year, McCoy has
been blessed with a quantity of
good material and this gives him
a "deep" team so necessary when
utilizing a fast break. From a
height standpoint, only Doug Law-
rence and Dave Krupp stand under
A strong nucleus remains from
last year's varsity, and they will
be aided by the cream of last
year's sparkling freshmen crop.
The new eligibility rule which al-
lows first year men to play will
also iiid McCoy, he is carrying
four freshmen on the varsity
At this point in the practice ses-
sions, the team ranking of indi-
vidual players is just beginning
to take shape. As of now, Captain,
Jim Skala, Doug Lawrence, and
lanky Dick Williams, all lettermen
last year, seem to be fairly certain
of starting berths.
a stockily built lad from East Chi-
cago, Indiana, seems to have the
first call for working the backcourt
with Lawrence. John Codwell, a
rangy import from Houston, Texas,
and Milt Mead, 6'9", all state cent-
er from Bay City, both sophomores
are in contention for the other for-
ward position.
Ann Arbor-bred Sid Cook, a
sophomore, Carl Brunsting, a
letter winner last season and
John Powless, freshman from
Aurora, Ill., are also expected to
see much action.
The other members of the squad
are senior letterman Tom Tier-
nan, juniors Krupp, Paul Goyer,
Bob Steinberg, Bill Wisner, and
Dave Levitt; Sophomores Dave
Nash and Bob Topp, and fresh-
man Bruce Allen, Bob Jewell and
Ralph Kauffman.

THE MAIN obstacle that the
Wolverines will have to overcome
in the coming season is their in-

experience. Another question pos-
ed is whether or not Williams and
Mead, the "big men" of the squad
will be able to take the buffeting
about they will be sure to receive
under the boards
Both men are rather fraily-
constructed and if they -don't
prove resilient, they won't be
much use in Big Ten play. In the
Western Conference it looks as
if Illinois will once again be the
team to beat, with Iowa shaping
up strongly in the dark horse
The season begins on December
first against Central Michigan, a
sort of test contest. From then an
until January fifth, they will play
six or more non-conference games,
but on the fifth the games begin
to count as the Wolverines travel
to Bloomington to take on Indi-
A pre-season prediction is dif-
ficult to make, considering the
greenness of the squad. All indica-
tions seem to point to a much more
successful season than last year,
but there are many question

Bowl Game
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK-It will be Stan-
ford against Illinois in the Rose
Bowl New Year's Day-A battle of
pre-season "have-nots" - even
though the West Coast Indians
lost their final game of the sea-
son yesterday.
Illinois narrowly squeaked into
the Big Ten championship while
Stanford suffered a 20-7 defeat at
the hands of California, the team
that was supposed to win the Pa-
cific Coast Conference title before
the season got under way.
In the other top game of the
day, Tennessee overwhelmed Ken-
tucky, 28-0.
Illini that they came out on top,
because their only two rivals for
the Big Ten crown,, Purdue and
Wisconsin, each scored victories.'
Both had a chance to win before
the day's proceedings got under
Stanford already had the Rose
Bowl berth in the bag but the
Indian's were aiming to take
a perfect record to Pasadena on
New Year's Day. UCLA defeated
Southern California, 21-7, to
take second place in the Pacific
Coast Conference race behind
Michigan State, whose record
does not count in the Big Ten
standings until 1953, shellacked
Colorado, 45-7, in an effort to get
back to the top of the Associated
Press Weekly poll. The Spartans
currently are No. 2.
The big hero in the Tennessee
triumph over Kentucky was Hank
Lauricella, who engineered most of
the offensive fireworks. He didn't
score though. Gen. Bob Neyland,
coach of the Vols, never had lost to
Kentucky in 20 meetings, and in
all this time the lads from the
Blue Grass have scored just 24
Both teams already have been
nominated for bowls-Tennessee
the Sugar and Kentucky the Cot-
ton-so the game did not mean
much from that standpoint. How-
ever, it probably cemented Tennes-
see as the No. i outfit in the Na-
tion. The rugged Tennessee line
stopped Kentucky's fine passer,
Babe Parilli, who never has thrown
one for a score against the Vols.
In another major southern en-'
counter, Maryland, the No. 4 team
in the land and headed for a meet-
ing with Tennessee New Year's
Day, flexed its muscles at the ex-
pense of West Virginia, 54-7, with
Ed (Mighty Mo) Modzelewski bull-
dozing for 131 yards and two
In the southwest conference, the
first place tie between Texas Chris-
tion and Rice was broken when the
pair met. Texas Christain got the
verdict, 22-6, and now holds down
first place and the favorite's spot
to get the Cotton Bowl nomination
against Kentucky.
But it isn't over yet. Baylor, still
in the running, slapped down
down Southern Methodist, 14-13.
Texas, the other team that could
do it, was idle.

third quarter.
Halfback Carroll Hardy provided
the big moment for the outclassed
Buffaloes when he took a pitchout
and wheeled 67 yards around end
for a score on the first play after
the third quarter kickoff.
QUARTERBACK Al Dorow pass-
ed to Bob Carey, the big Michigan
State end, for two of the touch-
Michigan State was 42 yards
out when Carey snagged a pass
for the first Michigan State
score in the opening quarter.
Fullback Dick Panin squirted
through the middle on a 51 yard
scoring run for the other first
period score.
Although the first stringers
powered for the majority of the
Michigan State touchdowns the
second and third stringers of the
"pony" backfield also sparkled.
SOPHOMORE Billy Wells was
in by the second period and scor-
ed from the one yard line after a
sustained Michigan State drive of
45 yards.
It took only two plays for Don
McAuliffe, the bruising first
string back, to score in the third
period. After a fumble was re-
covered on the Colorado 28 Mc-
Auliffe slammed for 26 yards
and bulled over from the two
yard line.
The third string backs were in
by the third period. Seven plays
carried 55 yards for a score with
Evan Slonac going the last 11
yards through the middle of the
Colorado line for the touchdown.
Carey, in the end zone, reached
up for another Dorow pass thrown
from 23 yards out for his second
touchdown of the game on the
first play of the final quarter.
The team badly wanted to see
Carey, the team captain and a re-'
tiring senior, make the final score
of the game.
A chance to run the score into
the 40's came in the final quarter
after Colorado slammed from its
own 34 down to the Michigan
State 15-the best sustained Colot-
ado drive of the game.
Safetyman Jim Ellis snagged one
of Zack Jordan's passes _on the
five and Michigan State was in
position for its final score. McAu-
liffe, Panin and Vince Pisano gain-
ed most of the yardage as Michi-

gan State marched down field to
the Colorado goal.
The quarterbacks kept trying
to hit Carey with passes but none
clicked and McAuliffe went over
from the four for the final score.
Carey made only three of his
conversion tries but the game was
not won where the extra points
mattered too much in the scoring.
Michigan State netted a fat 390
yards rushing to 178 for Colorado.
Six pass completions in 14 tries
gave Michigan State 120 yards to
68 yards on seven of 17 passes
completed for Colorado.

Late Penalty
Hurts Iowva
As Irish Tie
SOUTH BEND --(P)-- An end
zone pass interference ruling in
the last 55 seconds enabled Notre
Dame's desperate Irish, trailing
all the way, to tie underdog Iowa,
20-20, in the Hawkeyes season fin-
ale yesterday.
THE IRISH, playing before their
smallest crowd since the war, 40,-
695, lagged 20-6 entering the final
period, but then got two touch-
downs on short smashes by John-
ny Lattner in a wild aerial circus.
A ruling that an Iowa defender
interfered with end Chet Ostrow-
ski on Johnny Mazur's pass into
the end zone from the Hawkeye 24
gave Notre Dame the ball on
Iowa's 1.
On the next play, Lattner
smashed through the middle for
a touchdown.
Then Notre Dame's most im-
portant man of the day, unherald-
ed sophomore Bob Joseph, booted
the tying point. Joseph also had
converted after Lattner's five yard
touchdown smash midway in the
final period.
It appeared for three quarters
that the Hawkeyes would salvage
a chunk of glory from an other-
wise dismal season.

Freshman fullback Alan Ameche,I
who ran wild through the Gopher
line for 186 yards and two touch-
downs, set a new rushing mark of
756 yards. This breaks the prev-
ious mark set by Les Horvath of
Ohio State in 1944, at 732 yards.
THE OTHER two records went
to Minnesota's sophomore left half
Paul Giel, who set new marks for
season's total offense, and for av-
erage total offense per game.
Giel gained 106 yards by rush-
ing and passing to raise his sea-
son's total to 1,084. This breaks
the old total offense season's
mark of 1;039 yards set by Bob
Chappuis of Michigan in 1946.
Giel finished the season with an
average of 180.7 yards gained per
game by rushing and passing. This
breaks the mark of 169.8 set by
Chappuis in 1947.
* * *
AMECHE was ably assisted by
quarterback John Coatta, whose
bullet - like passes found their
marks consistently. Coatta passed
for one touchdown, set up another
with a 49-yard aerial, and kicked
an 11-yard field goal.
The pattern of the game became
apparent in the first two minutes.

phers took the kickoff, Deral Tet-
