BGODNMR?(Second in a series on Rihig;n
Y football prospects for the coming
season.)
The Michigan grid picture looks
quite bright in at least two posi-
tions, in these all important spring
practices.
In a time when Coach Ooster-
baan must find players capable of
playing both offensively and de-
fensively, he has encountered little
difficulty in finding ends and cen-
ters who can accomplish this feat.
GENE KNUTSON, Tad Stan-
ford, Bob Topp, John Veselenak
and Jim Bates are all outstanding
candidates for the end positions.
According to Oosterbaan all of
these players can adapt to "going
both ways."
Although Knutson played on
the defensive squad most of last
season.he has proved his versi-
tility in playing offense in spring
drills.
Knutson, a junior who stands
6'4", and weighs 210 has natural
speed and pass-grabbing ability
in addition to his rugged frame to
qualify him for the post.
Tad Stanford, offensive end
for the most part, is another jun-
ior who should be able to stand
the pace and fit into the picture
without too much difficulty.
Stanford is not out for spring
practice because he is also a var-
sity golfer.
Topp is a junior who saw limited
action last season under the two
platoon system. He has shown con-
tInued improvement in practices
thus far, both defensively and of-
fensively.
ALONG WITH Bates and Vese-
lenak, basket-baller Leo Schlict
has the necessary potential and
could very easily play the gruelling
60 minute game. Not to be counted
out is Jerry Williams, outstanding
freshmaIf end of the practices
completed thus far.
The job of finding a capable
pivot man has not been too dif-
ficult either. Although captainI
Dick O'Shaughnessy has been
switched to the guard position
1< in the spring practices, end re-
placements are available theI
change is by no means perman-
ent.
The possibility that O'Shaugh-
nessy may play the offensive cen-
ter spot, which he has held down
for the last two seasons, as well
as the defensive guard slot is given
Bucks Threat
To Michigan's
Golf Crown
By JIM DYGERT
(Third in a Series)
A definite threat to Michigan's
fond hopes of repeating its 1952
Big Ten golf title is presented by
Ohio State.
Returning lettermen from the
'52 squad approach double figures,
and the Buckeyes deploy this abun-
dance of talent Michigan State
style.
COPYING THE two platoon sys-
tem, so efficiently utilized by foot-
ball powers, Coach Bob Kepler us-
ually sends his three best to the
tee and interchanges six others on
the links.
In a match, for instance,
Frank Cardi, Ohio State Ama-
teur Champion and third from
the top in the '52 Big Ten meet,
Mel Woefling and Frank Guar-
asci play both the morning and
afternoon rounds.
From the remaining six, George
Frankfeld, Thad Long, Tom Good-
site, George Smith, Larry Harper,
and Larry Munsie, three are chos-

ment is tomorrow. Entries

en to play in the morning and the
rest in the afternoon, thus allow-
ing Coach Kepler to field a six
man team at all times.
THE BUCKEYES' desirable ad-
vantage of having enough excel-
lent golfersto afford indecision on
who is to play is the main reason
why Big Ten golf coaches look to-
ward Columbus with a reasonable
degree of worry.
e Besides their superiority in
numbers, the Scarlet and Grey
enjoy the delightful advantage
of a balanced and experienced
team. It is virtually the same
squad that drove and putted
its way to fourth place in the
Big Ten last year.
The Buckeyes are infused with
the determination to prove that
last year's descent to fourth place
after taking the '51 trophy was a
frown from fortune and no indica-
tion of their actual ability.
So far this year, the Buck-
eyes have managed to squeeze
