CHAMPAIGN, ILLINOIS-Michigan's Wolverines just didn't have
The Illini belted Michigan out of the Big Ten lead, ruined its
perfect season record, and undoubtedly smashed them from the ranks
of the nation's top-ranked football teams.
As to the somewhat premature Rose Bowl plns that some Ann
Arborites had been making-it puts the pressure squarely on Michigan
these next two Saturdays. It must defeat both Indiana and Ohio
State to gain the Big Ten title outright. Even should Michigan State
and OSU win next week, twin Michigan victories would put the
Wolverines on top all alone since both the Buckeyes and the Spartans
play only six conference games and Michigan has a seven game
The explosion here yesterday can be traced to one man-Bobby
Mitchell, who was the match that ignited the Illini powder keg.
Mitchell's performance was sensational, as he squirmed and
twisted through the entire Michigan team on two occasions for
gains of 54 and 64 yards-to set Michigan on the skids for the first
time this season.
It Was Illinois' Day...
WHY DIDN'T Michigan have it yesterday, one may ask? You had
to see it to believe it. The Illini defense so completely covered
the great Ron Kramer and Tom Maentz that they were rendered
virtually useless. The only weapon of any use at all was the pile
driving running of Tony Branoff, and even that wasn't enough.
The Michigan dressing room was a sad place. Not a sound
could be heard, except for the running of showers and the scraping
of equipment trunks. A box of apples lay uneaten on the floor of
the wet, white-walled room. Oosterbaan just mumbled "it was
Illinois' day all the way. They deserved to win. They outplayed us
completely." Ben had no alibis. The Wolverines were -whipped
by a better team yesterday. The Illini had to be better in order to
beat the Cinderella team that had snatched victory from defeat so
many times before.
On the other side of the stadium, Ray Eliot was jubilant. Ad-
mirers thronged around him. He called it a "team victory-with
the running of Mitchell and the great fake field goal attempt-the
turning points." The Illini fans were hysterical with joy. Many
shouted to the Michigan team as they left the field "Champions of
they West-hah." It was indeed a bitter defeat for the Wolverines
Could it be that the Wolverines left their football ability back
t in the Michigan Stadium last weekend? Was the Iowa comeback the
last shot in the Maize and Blue gun-barrel?
The answer here yesterday seemed to indicate that it was. This
was the opinion of most of the sportswriters who thronged here from
all parts of the land to cover this one.
Statistics Don't Lie...
THE statistics bear their opinions out. The Big Blue was out first-
downed, 16-12. It was outrushed 315-157. It was outpassed 123-17.
It was outgained 438-174. Statistics don't lie. Neither do final
Credit must be given to the Illini, who certainly earned the vic-
tory. The Eliot line, which many claimed was of tissue-paper variety
certainly outplayed the Michigan line which Jack Blott has termed
The passing of Em Lindbeck certainly outmatched that of either
Jim VanPet or Jim Maddock. The pass catching of Bob DesEnfants
was superior to that of Maentz and Kramer.
But the biggest difference of all was in the backfield, as the
' ittle Hot Springs, Arkansas halfback named Mitchell managed to
elude every defense that Michigan could hurridly set up. It was his
day. He was the man of the hour-and should be reckoned with in
the years to come.
