Ten Years Ago-Michigan
Edged Out by OSU, 18-14
By PHIL DOUGLIS
If history has anything to say
about it, Michigan should lose to
Ohio State today, 18-14.
One of football's most striking
parallels seems to be in the mak-
ing, for Just 10 years ago this
month the Big Ten football pic-
ture stood almost exactly as it does
at this moment.
On the morning of November
23, 1944, Ohio State ruled the
Conference, boasting an unde-
feated slate-and leading the lea-
gue in offense. Michigan was sec-
ond, its season marred only by an
upset loss to Indiana-and it led
the Big Ten in defense.
If the Buckeyes won, it would
sew up the title, their first in ten
years, and would gain a possible
Bowl bid. If Michigan won, it
would gain a share of the Confer-
Exactly the Same
Today, the situation is the same.
History has repeated itself so far.
Defensively the top team in the
Big Ten, the Wolverines have lost
Just one game to Indiana, and find
themselves bidding for a co-title
against undefeated OSU in Colum-
bus Saturday. As in 1944, the
Buckeyes are reaching for their
first undisputed title in ten years,
and a Rose Bowl bid.
We cannot peer into the future
and see if history will repeat it-
self this afternoon before 86,000
screaming fans in Columbus, but
we can go back ten years, and see
what happened in 1944. Wolverine
fans hope it does not happen
Leading with but a few min-
utes left in the game, 14-12, the
Maize and Blue were moving in on
the Conference title. But, as fate
would have it, the line slants of
All-American Les Horvath, and
Dick Flanagan cut the Maize and
Blue line to shreds and the Bucks
marched 54 yards to score win-
ning 18-14. The record mob in
the big horseshoe went wild.
Crisler's Wolverines, led by Joe
Ponsetto, had played their hearts
out, and walked dejectedly into
the big gloomy tunnel. The "Buck-
eye battle-cry" reigned supreme.
Will history repeat? It has so
far-but Michigan fans are keep-
ing their fingers crossed and are
hoping that one of the closest
parallels in grid history comes to
an abrupt end today.

With the Buckeyes leading the
Conference in offense, they have

11 'M' Icemen
Michigan's already short-hand-
ed hockey team suffered what
could possibly be a severe loss
Thursday, when winger Yves He-
bert suffered a concussion.
Hebert, confined to University
Hospital where he is under ob-
servation, collided with freshman
Doug Rudolph during a practice
session, and struck his head very
hard against the ice. It is not yet
known how serious the injury is,
or how long he will be out. X-rays
have shown no fracture.
Meanwhile, the remaining elev-
en members of Vic Heyligers'
youthful squad scrimmaged the
Toledo Mercurys of the Interna-
tional League in a practice session
yesterday. George Dunningan, Bill
MacFarland, and Gerry Karpinka
paced the scrimmage for the
