WITH PHIL DOUGLIS
Daily Sports Editor
YESTERDAY was Tom Maentz day at the Michigan Stadium.
The "other end" on Michigan's mighty Wolverines established
himself as one of America's greatest flankers yesterday with his vital
role in Michigan's dramatic 33-21 storybook win over Iowa.
Playing in the shadow of the fabulous Ron Kramer, Maentz
teamed up with his famed cohort to drag Iowa into defeat, and his
brace of TD catches, coupled with Kramer's heroic dash to paydirt,
caused Athletic Director Fritz Crisler to mumble, "How can any
team devise a defense to stop those two?"
Others Helped...
But it was not Maentz alone who yesterday sent Iowa to oblivion
with perhaps the most exciting rally in Big Ten history.
True, Maentz's seven catches, for gains of 57, 9, 5, 33, 10, 10, and
60 yards respectively, was quite a day. But one must look still deeper
than this brilliant performance to
::.<find the real story of Michigan's
victory.
Credit must also be given to the
v . presence of Big Ron Kramer -
w h o s e inspirational leadership
coupled with his brilliant catch
and run in the dying minutes
sparked the attack. The great
end was playing with a plastic vest,
protecting the famed ribs that he
injured in the Army battle.
Ben Oosterbaan was proud of
them all. He called the game "one
of the finest games a Michigan
team has ever played." He said
that for a team to come back like
Michigan did, it had to have "char-
acter.'
He chuckled to himself as he
said "We really gave those folks
on TV a show-didn't we?" c
Quite a show,it was. Under the
leaden grey Ann Arbor skies, othere
names too must be singled out fo
glory. Don't forget Terry Barr,
"whose wonderful passing, and fineI

after a great game Forget not the -name of Jimr
rg gMaddock-whose poised, cool pass-
ing turned Iowa into shambles for the second year in a row. Tony
Branoff, the pile-driving halfback, who yesterday tossed and ran1
the Iowans into the ground also deserves plaudits.
But when Oosterbaan was asked who were the best yesterday-
he managed a broad grin and said "I've always loved those ends."
Across the tunnel in the Iowa dressing room, gloom was the
keynote. Coach Forest Evashevski, who has never beaten his Alma
Mater called all the reporters into the small rubbing room deep inc
the innards of the Michigan Stadium.
He had his words well prepared. "We lost to a great team. I
am proud of my boys, who played their hearts out for us. I am very
disappointed. I wish Michigan the best of luck. That's it." With
the last two words he clipped off all conversation, and would not!
make any further comments.c
Evy Disappointed...
Forest Evashevski was a disappointed man as he left the Michigan
Stadium. Outpassed 289-50 yards, his defenses couldn't stand thet
furious last ditch onslaught of the Wolverines.I
As we left the vast stadium, yards of shredded paper remainedI
in the place of the vast throng which had just departed. Two fans
were filing out of an exit high in the stands-the last of the huge
herd to leave. One said to the other: "Man-you'll never see a game1
like that again!", His companion turned to him with a smile and
said "Wanna' bet-wait till next week."
We disagree with him. Yesterday's game was the greatest foot-
ball game we have ever seen. We believe that the majority of the
72,096 fans will go along with that,.

plays, Ed Vincent climaxed the
drive as he rambled 24 yards on
fourth dow nto score on a well-
executed trap play.
Bad Start For 'M'
Early in the second quarter,
Fleet Earl Smith took in a Maentz
punt on his own 27 and wheeled
up the sidelines 53 yards to the
Michigan 21. Roger Wiegmann
swept down to the five, and then
after Vincent got a yard, Don
Dobrino leaped into the end zone,
and heads wagged from Maine to
California as Michigan appeared
to be on the way to its first de-
feat of the year.
The Wolverines went into the
second half trailing, 14-0, but sud-
denly in the third quarter, they
came alive.
With Lou Baldacci leading the
way with catlike thrusts into the
Iowa line, Michigan moved 59
yards in 13 plays, with Baldacci
finally carrying it over from the
one. The extra point attempt was
blocked . . . but the Wolverines
had been fired beyond the explod-
ing point.
Explode they did, as less than
three minutes later Branoff hit
Maentz with a sensational 33 yard
pass in the end zone. Big Ron
added the conversion, and the
72,096 chilled fans went into de-
lerium, as Michigan had pulled to
within one point of Iowa.
Hawks Still Battling
But Evashevski was not to be
denied .. . at least not for awhile.
The hopped-up Hawks came right
back with a third period counter

of their own, as Jerry Reichow
capped a 78 yard march by firing
a perfect payoff pass to Dobrino.
Jim Freeman's kick was good, and
Iowa led 21-13 as the fatal fourth
quarter opened.
With the fourth quarter just
underway, it appeared that Iowa
was about to sew up the game, as
Reichow fired a touchdown to
Dobrino, but an illegal use of
hands penalty brought the ball
back to the Iowa 47.
Iowa was then checked and it
was at this point that the Wol-
verine tornado erupted. First came
Colts Gain Win
Over Packers
BALTIMORE, (P)-"Long Gone"
Dupre joined his rookie mate,
workhorse Alan Ameche, to run
the Baltimore Colts to a third-
period touchdown last night for
a 14-10 victory over the Green
Bay Packers and undisputed sec-
ond place in the Western Confer-
ence of the National Football
League.
Dupre, playing his first full
game in the league after being
hobbled by injuries, sprinted 23
yards for the second and winning
touchdown.
He and Ameche, who has been
carrying the load for the newly
respected Colts, had largely car-
ried the ball from their own 20
to come from behind and win.
Ameche, the league's leading
ground gainer, carried the ball 22
times and smashed for 117 yards.
It was the fourth victory in six
games for the Colts, the first time
they have ever won that many in
one season. It was the third set
back-the second at the hands of
Baltimore-for Green Bay in its
half-dozen contests.

Maddock's sensational TD pass to
Kramer, and Michigan was only
one point away from victory.
But Iowa had to be checked for
keeps at this point, as the Hawks
started cutting through the Mich-
igan line, and eating up the prec-
ious seconds with plunge after
plunge.
Finally, it came to a head, as
the black-helmeted Hawks had a'
fourth down and one to go on the
Michigan 28 with four minutes to
go and a one point lead. The
mighty Michigan line rose to the
occasion as it has done so many
times this season, and stopped
Reichow as he tried to slide off
tackle for the first down.
Tide Turned
This was probably the defensive
play of the game-for Michigan
took over, and seconds later Mad-
dock fired the game winning pass
to Maentz.
Evashevski stood forlornly on
the sidelines as Maentz waltzed
into the end zone. His supreme ef-
fort had failed by an eyelash, as
Michigan's Wolverines charged in-
to the pages of sports history to
leave on them an indelible im-
pression for all-time.
