Upsets Not So Numerous
As in Previous Seasons

LOOP ENTERS SECOND YEAR:
Heyliger Active In Creating MCHL

-

By IVAN KAYE
The 1952 football season didn't
really make the experts look to
' bad.
There were upsets, but they
were not quite as numerous or
stunning as those of the previous
seasons.
« . s
THE ONLY sector which pro-
duced any major surprises was
the heartland of football - the
Middle West. Notre Dame knocked
over Oklahoma and Southern
California, both of which were
unbeaten and rated in the top
three at game time. Pitt had pre-
viously sprung an upset on the
Irish.
The Big Ten race was the
wildest of* them all. Going into
the final game, four teams:
Michigan, Minnesota, Purdue
and Wisconsin were in conten-
tion for the crown and Rose
Bowl Invitation. The Woverines
wound up in fourth. For the
first time in years, the Big Ten
champion was not present in
the nation's top ten teams.
There was such a divergance of
strength in the conference this
year that even the champion
Badgers and Boilermakers were
each beaten and tied. It isn't very
often that a team can take a Big
Ten title with a loss and a tie.
* *
OUTSIDE of the Western Con-
ference, each of the major leagues
produced at least one team which
posted an outstanding record.
In the Pacific Coast Confer-
ence, Southern California was
unstoppable, with U.C.L.A.'s
right behind. Penn edged
Princeton to finish with a clean
Ivy League slate. Georgia Tech
and Mississipi, both unbeaten
led the Southeast. They did not
meet during the regular season,
but will square off on New Year's
day in the famed Sugar Bowl at
New Orleans.
Tennessee and Duke were su-
preme in the Southern loop, while
Texas rolled through the pass-
happy Southwest Conference with-
out defeat.
s a s
THUS THE established powers
of the various sections would up
at the tops of their respective con-
!erences.
The pre-season dopesters
tabbed Michigan State as the
nation's strongest team, and
Biggie Munn's Spartans proved
them absolutely right. Georgia
Tech, Princeton, Purdue, Wis-
consin, Penn, Oklahoma, Ten-
nessee, Duke, Texas and U.$.C.
were all figured to be prime
forces in their conferences and
the record has upheld the for-
cast.
Penn, although winning the Ivy
League crown, experienced a ter-
rific late-season slump and lost
to Penn State, Georgia and Army.
The loss of stellar tackle Captain
Bob Evans hurt the Quakers
chances of finishing unbeaten.
WITH FEW exceptions, the
teams that were figured to be
strong were strong throughout the
season. Biggest disappointment of
the year was Ray Elliot's Illinois

squad. Picked to repeat as Big
Ten champions, the Orange and
Blue dropped five games to con-
ference opposition.
Biggest upset of the year
was Iowa's stunning 8-0 con-
quest of Ohio State's powerful
Buckeyes. The Hawkeyes won
only one other game in the
conference, while Ohio proved
its potential by smashing both
Wisconsin and Michigan, two
of the Big Ten's strongest.
The 1952 season saw the re-
turn to power of one of the greats
of yesteryear. The University of
Pittsburgh, once the pride of East-
ern football, had slipped to the
depths in the years following the
departure of their great coach
"Jock" Sutherland. Now under
Lowell "Red" Dawson, who for-
merly tutored Biggie Munn's back-
fields up at East Lansing, the
Smokey City lads used triumphs
over Notre Dame and Ohio State
as stepping-stones to a highly
successful season.
PRIME REASON for Pitt's re-
surgance was the influx in great-
er numbers of the products of
Western Pennsylvania high school
football. For years the talent beds
surrounding Pittsburgh had sent
their finest to other campuses from
Knoxville to East Lansing. Now
the home grown athletes were be-
ing routed to the capable Dawson
and the result was as expected.
That Western Pennsylvania
products were in evidence dur-
ing this football season can eas-
ily be shown from a lo6k at the
All America teams which in-
- cluded Dick Tamburo of New
Kensington and Frank Kush of
Windber, both of Michigan State
and Dick Modzelewski of West
Natronaand the University of
Maryland. As Pitt gets stronger,
some of the nation's foremost
*gridiron powers may find it dif-
ficult to lure promising material
away from the Quaker state.
In retrospect, the 1952 football
season went more according to the
form chart than did its predesses-
sor, and produced among other
things Bill Vessels as its best back
and Dick Modzelewski as its best
lineman. Michigan State captured
the AP poll, but it remained for
Frank Leahy's Fighting Irish of
Notre Dame, with victories over
four conference champions,to
steal the fancy of the nation's
football faithful.

By PAUL GREENBERG
Wolverine Hockey Coach Vic
Heyliger, who made the ice sport
a leading attraction in the Mich-
igan winter schedule, scored an-
other success last season when he
helped organize the Midwest Col-
legiate Ice Hockey League.
The ice loop, in its inaugural
season received the plaudits of col-
legiate puck enthusiasts through-
out the nation. It has made com-
petition keener-with the tangible
award of a bid to the NCAA tour-
nament in Colorado Springs going
to the two top teams.
SM* * d
|SEVEN TEAMS, all midwestern

ice powers comprise the league in-
cluding: Colorado College, Denver
University North Dakota, Min-
nesota, Michigan State, Michigan
Tech and Michigan. Last year
Colorado and Michigan got the
tournament bids.
The Tigers, under the tutelage
of Cheddy Thompson, collegiate
ice "Coach of the Year for 1951-
1952" took first place with a ten
won, two lost record. Michigan
tied for second place with a sur-
prising Denver team that was
coached by ex-Wolverine star
Neil Celley.
The Maize and Blue and Denver
had identical 9-3 marks, and the
Western Selections Committee
picked Michigan for the tourna-
ment on the strength of its more
impressive over-all record.
EACH TEAM plays every other
team in the league at least twice,
two points scored for a win and
one for a tie. If a team plays four
games with a given opponent, each
win counts a point while a tie goes
for half a score.

The NCAA rules committee
moved last year to eliminate the
possibility of ties by adding a
ten minute sudden-death over-
time period to the three regular
20 minute frames. However, if
both teams go scoreless in the
extra time, the games goes into
the record books as a tie.
The Woverines open their loop
season during Christmas vacation
when they journey down to tne
land of high altitudes to engage
Denver and Colorado in four
games in five days, December 19-
23. These contests will go a long
way toward deciding the league
championship since Denver and
Colorado are expected to provide
Michigan its major competition in
the quest for first place.
HOWEVER, there isn't really
a weak team in the whole league.
Minnesota, sparked by high-scor-
ing Johnny Mayasich and Dick
Dougherty promise to be in ther
among the top clubs and Coach
Amo Bessone of Michigan State
is said to have a potent team.

Why forget value just because it's Christmas? Re-
member a low price doesn't always mean a bar-
gain. And a high price doesn't always means high
fashion. The question to ask is "What am I getting
for the price I pay?" At Collins you get plenty-
of value for every dollar you spend, and plenty of
fresh new merchandise to choose from. Do your
Christmas shopping at Collins. May we suggest
you shop with a list of her sizes to avoid that
disappointment on Christmas morning.

Ohio State Natators Represent
Major Hurdle for Wolverines

This season, as in so many years
past, Ohio State's mighty swim-
ming team will present the major
hurdle for Michigan's aquatic ath-
letes.
The Buckeyes, coached by Mike
Peppe, are tie defending Big Ten
an dnational champions, and hold
three straight dual meet victories
over the Wolverines.
* * *
THE SCARLET and Grey are
are loaded with a host of All-
Americans, among them, freestyle
sensation Ford Konno, who won
recognition in the 220, 440, and
1500 meter races, sprinter Dick
Cleveland, backstroker Yoshi Oya-
kawa and breaststroker Jerry
Holan.

The Ohioans are definitely
the "team to beat" in the West-
ern Conference and will share
favorite honors with Bob Ki-
puth's Yale squad in the na-
tional meet.
Michigan State could possibly
provide the next toughest compe-
tition for Matt Mann's crew. Even
without their graduated Olympic
champion Clark Scholes, the
Spartans of Coach Charlie Mc-
Caffree will present a fairly strong
aggregation.
The Michigan schedule shows
six dual meets with conference op-
position (OSU, MSC, Northwest-
ern, Iowa, Purdue and Minnesota)
and two meets with non-confer-
ence foes
