What's It Worth?
By Warren Wertheimer
'2ii::: i... .......... u:...~. }..... .............. .S...
UNDEFEATED in three conference games, including sensational
upset victories over Iowa and Minnesota, and a serious contender
for the Big Ten title and the trip to California that goes along with
it-that's the lofty and pleasant position that the Wolverine eleven
finds itself in today. Yet the person who could have predicted this
after Michigan's indifferent performance against Washington and
its horrible showing in the Army game wouldhave to be considered
a modern-day Nostradamus. This year's Maize and Blue eleven has
been one of the most puzzling teams that we have ever followed. It
has run the gauntlet from terrible through mediocre to terrific. And
the last mentioned is what the Wolverines were yesterday.
Bigger Upset ...
THE VICTORY over Minnesota was even more startling and im-
pressive than the triumph over Iowa which was rated the top
upset in the nation that Saturday. The ridiculous ease with which
the Maize and Blue routed the highly touted Gophers makes you
wonder if this isn't a good team after all-a really good team which
} comes up for a game when it has to and at other times plays jud
well enough to win. A lot bf the sting of Army's 'surprise' win over
Michigan departs as with each passing week it becomes more and
more apparent that this is one of Coach Earl Blaik's great Cadet
Bennie Oosterbaan commenting on yesterday's encounter said,
"It was our best game of the year, but don't ask me why we reached
such a peak. If I knew, I'd be a good coach." And the Wolverines
were truly at the top of their game. The line and backfield, the
offense and defense deserve equal credit for the sensational manner
in which they performed. To hold Minnesota's vaunted offense to 43
yards on the ground and 95 yards in 20 pass attempts is an accom-
plishment not to be sneered at. Equally notable is Machigan's show-
ing of 261 yards gained through and around a line that averages 218
pounds, and 182 yards via the air lanes.
Just as with the Iowa contest, yesterday's win was the result
of a tremendous team effort. But certain individual performances
stand out. Ron Kramer, the sensational sophomore end, played bet-
ter than usual, and his usual showing is pretty terrific. For that
manner, a number of ends sparkled yesterday. Tom Maentz, Mike
Rotunno and Charley Brooks played very well, especially on defense;
and with Kramer and the injured Gerry Williams, they give Michi-
gan one of the top if not the top collection of ends on any one col-
lege team in the country.
* * *
Who Was Better?..;
IT IS difficult to determine whether Lou Baldacci or Jim Maddock
shone more brightly on the gridiron yesterday as they alternated
at quarterback. Baldacci, back in the starting lineup for the first
time since the Washington game when he incurred a shoulder injury,
particularly stood out when he twice gave a beautiful exhibition of
open field running after taking short passes. He rolled up 68 yards
on the two plays. In addition he called the key play of the game
when a fourth and one on Michigan 39, Baldacci gambled for the
first down and it payed off. Maddock was his cool self as he directed
the Wolverine attack. He hit on two of three passes good for 62
yards and ran for 32 yards on a play where he seemed to be trapped
r for a loss.
Freddy Baer and Danny Cline also came up with top notch1
showings. Baer cracked the Gopher line for 94 yards and scored
twice while Cline clicked with 5 of 11 passes for 99 yards and carrieds
the pigskin across for one of the winners' five TD's. But probably1
the most important and significant performance, certainly it was
the most inspiring to the Wolverine gridders, was turned in by Tony
There had been stories circulating to the effect that Branoff
might be out for the season as a result of a bad knee. But the Flint
junior put all those stories to rest yesterday as he ran in the manner
that made him one of the Big Ten's leading rushers last year. Ooster-
baan used him only when Michigan got down near the Minnesota
goal line and Branoff, who was instrumental in four of the five touch-
down drives, racked up 38 yards in 8 carries. A Branoff in top shap'e
and with a sound knee could make one heck of a lot of difference in
the Wolverines' grid future.1

Injuries a Blessing?..."
THERASH of injuries which hit the Maize and Blue squad this
season may turn out to be a blessing in disguise before the season
runs its course. What with numerous starters and second stringers
hurt early in the season, Oosterbaan was forced to use players who
had seen little or no previous action. Many of these gridders perform-
ed so well that if and when Michigan returns to full strength, it will
be two and three deep with dependable performers at every position.
Men like Brooks, Maentz, Rotunno, Gene Snider, Jerry Goebel, Dick
and Dave Hill, Terry Barr, John Greenwood, and Ed Shannon (all
but Dave Hill are sophs, Hill being a junior), all of whom were
virtually unknown before the season started, have played so well
that Michigan's pigskin future, not only this year but in the next cou-
ple of years as well looks bright indeed.
As for this year's Big Ten struggle, the Wolverines and Ohio
State at present are the two top choices for the title with the latter
~'having the better chance of making it. But should both teams win
their next three contests, then on November 20, Michigan will run
into a team which is undefeated and very highly ranked nationally
and one which will be favored to whip the Maize and Blue. And I
seem to recall that the Wolverines have encountered this situation
before during the 1954 season.

LOS ANGELES (--Quarterback
Paul Larson and the California

NEW YORK AM)-Army's fast de-
veloping football team crushed
Columbia yesterday 67-12, the high-
est score ever made in a series
that began in 1899.
Everyone on the Army bench got
into the battle and 10 men had
a hand in the scoring. Columbia
fumbles were responsible for five
Army touchdowns. The longest run
of the game was made at the
start of the second half when Tom
Bell dashed 68 yards for a touch-
This was the highest score ever
run up against a team coached
by Columbia's Lou Little.
Columbia gave the crowd of 30,-
000 something to cheer about in
the closing minutes of the first
half when the Lions scored two
touchdowns in a little more than
a minute of play.

Trojans Score Late
Southern California all but elim-

scoring burst late in the final period
to go ahead, 29-21. But with the
clock running out and 66,342 fans
hanging on to the finish, Iron Man
Larson swept the Bears 54 yards
and completed a scoring strike to
end Jim Carmichael, bringing the
final score to 29-27.
The safety came when Larson
tried a pass from his own end zone
and was dropped for two points
by end Don McFarland.
