The top teams with first place
By TOM BEIERLE
The 1955-56 edition of the Michi-
gan wrestling team will be power-
packed and loaded with experience.
Bolstered by a returning nucleus
of Big Ten title-holders Mike Rod-
riguez, Don Haney, and Max Pear-
son, the Wolverines will be pushing
hard to gain their second straight
Big Ten title.
Rodriguez, this year's captain
although only a junior, holds the
conference crown for the 157-
pound class and was runner-up in
last year's NCAA tournament for
this weight class.
Haney Remains Undefeated
Haney picked up the 147-pound
conference title when a referee's
decision gave him a victory over
Purdue's Bud Weick. In two
seasons of dual meets, Haney has
never lost a match, and will be
back at the same weight to defend
Pearson completely outclassed
John Ontiveros of Illinois to win
the 130-pound title, but the junior
will probably be entered in the
137-pound class this season.
Coach Cliff Keen has lost only
one name from last year's Big Ten
Championship roster - that of
Andy Kaul, conference 137-pound
champ, runner-up in the NCAA
tournament, and team captain.
Assistant coach Bob Betzig re-
marked "we lost something when
Kaul graduated, but at the same
time we have gained a lot in ex-
perience and new men."
He cited Frank Hirt who had a
so-so year last'year as being much
improved and one who should do
real well this year.
John McMahon, who finished
fourth in the conference 167-pound
class last season will be back in
that class and should better his
New faces will appear in the
heavy divisions. At the present,
sophomore Steve Zervas is the
most likely candidate for the
heavyweight spot while Jack Mar-
chello and Steve Bloom will prob-
ably handle the 177-pound class.
In the 123-pound class Charley
Anderson, Bill Jergins, and Joe
Atkins are all vying for the top

NEW YORK WP) - Michigan s
veteran athletic director, Herbert

winner of the New York Touch-
down Club's 1955 award for having
done the most for football over a
period of years.
The presentation will be made
at a banquet January 26.
Crisler was head football coach
at Minnesota, Princeton, and
Michigan for a total of 18 years
before he became Wolverine ath-
letic director. He is credited with
introducing the two-platoon sys-
tem into college football and with
developing the buck lateral and
spinner attacks. Crisler coached
teams won 116 games, lost 32, and
tied 9. His 1947 Michigan squad

THE YEAR 1917 marked Michigan's entry into the Big Ten
basketball wars. But three years in competition with experienced
Conference teams resulted in nothing better than a fourth-place
finish for the young Wolverines.
THEN CAME THE YEAR 1920, and for half a basketball
season it seemed to be just a repeat performance of the previous
Maize and Blue court disasters. Suddenly out of the blue a
spark was ignited and the Michigan quintet put together an
extended winning streak reaching four, five and finally six
games, a challenging position for the, title.
ILLINOIS STOOD as thebarrier to the Maize and Blue un-
beaten string and at the same time stood in the way of its.
championship dreams. The Wolverine-Illini battle was held at
the Urbana High School gymnasium on March 7, 1921.
MICHIGAN DID NOT make one substitution in the whole 40
minutes of do-or-die action. With Bill Miller, a forward, and
Bob Dunne, the center, putting on a dazzling exhibition of
shooting, Illinois could never grab the lead and the half ended
with Michigan on top, 14-11.
ILLINOIS TOOK the lead once during the game, but Miller
responded by knotting the count at 18-all. Baskets by Art Kar-
pus, Bud Rea and Dunne put the finishing touches on the hard-
earned triumph which the Michigan five annexed by a scant
ONE NIGHT LATER, Wisconsin topped Ohio State, 34-24,
to create a triple tie with Purdue. In jumping from the bottom
to the top of the Big Ten Conference heap, Michigan had
staged a comeback of dynamic proportions. Never in the history
of Conference basketball had a team engineered such a remark-
