Opening I- Football Contests,
Game of the Year?
THE SCRIPT for Saturday says that the colorfully-traditional
Michigan-Michigan State battle might be this fall's game of the
year. A sell-out since July, this contest could be the most crucial one
in deciding which Big Ten team-Ohio State, MSU, Michigan, or
Illinois, is goirg to win the much-sought after Conference champion-
The Blue chips will be down. Figure it this way: Michigan and
Illinois play seven Western Conference teams; Ohio State and Michi-
gan State play only six. If State wins, it has a good chance of going
undefeated, since it doesn't play the Buckeyes. If Michigan wins, the
Wolverines could take the crown even by beating Illinois and losing
to Ohio State.
There are, of course, many other combinations of outcomes, es-
pecially with Lady Upset smiling and/or leering every weekend.
As the Wolverines concentrate
their efforts this week at Ferry t
Field, there is much looking back ° ff
to Saturday's UCLA encounter to 4
seek some sort of answer as to
just what lies ahead.
Michigan had no trouble with a
weakened UCLA team. State was
quite strong in beating Stanford,

Michigan Coach Bennie Ooster
baan called the opener,"' A fairly '
typical . opening game," with a
usual amount of fumbles, defen-
sive mistakes, and general un-
easiness. But behind the statistics,
there are some interesting notes
The Wolverines used just about
as many single wing plays as T-
formation, but starting quarter-
back Jim Van Pelt called mostly .
the former, setting up the solid JIM PACE
running attack of tailbacks Bobshfytibc
Ptacek and Jim Pace. ., shifty tailback
Besides Michigan's impressive running game, there ,was a scent
of new things in passing; and, perhaps, a renewed offensive weapon
here that could make a big difference.
The running of John Herrnstein was also very promising, as was
Terry Barr in his seemingly well-liked new- right half position.
But Michigan was obviously not throwing all its punches against
the Uclans. There were moments also when the Blue-shirted defense
was taking its hard knocks.
Wolverine Defense Needs Polish
PARTICULARLY noticeable were the problems Michigan had in
stopping the short pass. The UCLA single wing also was able to
run through the center of the line for fairly consistent drives. De-
fensively, Michigan right now has a depth problem in the line that
will be troublesome if any serious injuries occur.
Several other individuals seemed strong Saturday; especially de-
fensive signal-caller Mike Rotunno and back Van Pelt, who made
several key tackles to stop the Bruins' ground attack. Kramer was
his top-shape, rock-rugged self and Maentz played another of his
spirited, alert games at end.
Overall, Saturday's result shows a team. of promise and maybe
more. Yesterday's drills were light with part of the time spent hear-
ing the scouting reports on Michigan State. Encouraging was the fact
that there have apparently been no major injury additions.
Pace and end Charlie Brooks have slight muscle strains; tackle
} Willie Smith is nursing a twisted ankle, while Kramer and Van Pelt
have minor hand injuries.
Oosterbaan commented at the start of a busy week yesterday,
"We can't make some of Saturday's mistakes and expect to win against
State." Duffy Daugherty probably is thinking the same thing up in
So this writer would like to venture the foggy-crystal ball guess
that MSU will be slightly favored to win this Saturday, but that if
Michigan does win, it could well be no upset.

I-M Residence Hall "A" football
moved into full swing yesterday as
nine games covered the playing
surface of South Ferry Field.
Because of the advent of a
"B" football league the number
of participants in yesterday's con-
tests was drastically reduced from
what it had been in previous years.
Conybear to Gordon Clicks
In one of the day's hardest
fought games Cooley edged
Strauss, 9-0. An 18-yard pass from
Bruce Conybear to Ed Gordon ac-
counted for the game's only touch-
down. The conversion was made
over the same route.
Earlier in the first half John
Miller had broken in on Frank
Szalwinski of Strauss and trapped
him in the end zone for the Tro-
jans other points.
Williams relied on good defen-
sive work to make a one touch-
down lead stand up as they
squeezed by Anderson, 6-0. Shortly

sprinted 25 yards for the tally.
The day's highest scoring game
featured a 19-0 rout of Adams by

fired three touchdown passes. Dick
LeMay caught two scoring heaves
of five and 30 yards with Bob

pass for the final marker.
