Lead in Conference'

>--

By DON McGHEE
With the 1956 football season
two-thirds complete, the outcome
of the Big Ten Conference race is
still uncertain.
Five teams could possibly end as
champions, while three could still
travel to Pasadena.
Last Saturday saw four very
crucial Conference games end
much as suspected with Ohio State
surviving as the only undefeated
team in the league. This gave the
Buckeyes sole possession of first
place, as the former leader, Iowa,
suffered their first defeat at the
hands of Michigan, 17-14.
Favored by 20 points, the Buck-
eyes barely scraped past a sur-
prisingly s t r o n g Northwestern
squad, 6-2. The Wildcats scored
first with a safety, but Ohio fought
back with a touchdown just be-
fore the end of the first half.
The Buckeyes successfully held
onto that slim lead through the
second half.
Busy outside the league with a
tough Pittsburgh team, the Min-
nesota squad earned a 9-6 victory,
and took over second place due to
the Wolverines' defeat of Iowa.

The Minnesota-Iowa game this
coming Saturday will be the cru-
cial test for both squads, for the
outcome may well decide who will
represent the Big Ten in the Rose
Bowl. j
Revengeful after their upset at
the hands of the Illini, Michigan
State bounded back with a 33-0
shellacking of Wisconsin. This en-
abled the Spartans to hold on to
a third place tie with Iowa.
State used a strengthened pass-
ing attack to supplement their
usually powerful ground game.
In the remaining Conference
battle Purdue and Illinois fought
to a 7-7 deadlock. Neither club
could find the scoring punch when
it was needed.
The remaining Big Ten team,
Indiana, had trouble downing a
weak non-conference foe, Mar-
quette, 19-13. The Hoosiers' Big
Ten record still stands at one vic-
tory and two defeats.
Considering the upsets that have
occured thus far in Conference
play, and the usual surprises that
mark Big Ten football, no one can
yet make any steadfast predictions
about the outcome of this typical
Big Ten gridiron season.

Two-team struggles in both the
Eastern and Western divisions are
providing an unusual theme for
the current National Football
League campaign.
Usually a more balanced dog-
fight until at least the three-quar-
ter mark, the NFL race finds the
two leaders in each conference
having things, for the most part,
their own way.
Detroit's rampaging Lions are
the only unbeaten eleven left in
the league, as a result of their
17-13 triumph over San Francis-

T WAS LATE Sunday morning. We were all packed, ready to make
the journey back to Ann Arbor. Someone introduced us to an
Iowa student. He grinned. He was probably too stunned tor realize
what had happened the day before. Sometimes it takes a while to
sink in.
We had a short chat. "Do you think you'll ever beat us?" one of
us asked. He stared right at us, pondered for a moment and replied,
"I guess we never will." Then he thought some more, brightened and
said, "Sure . .. we'll beat, Miclaigan . . . I don't know when . . . but
we will."
What else could he say? What else could any Iowa fan, coach or
player say? If it happens once, it's football. If it happens twice, it's
a coincidence. If it happens three times, it's tragic. But-four times!
If any of you can understand why this fantastic story has repeated
itself on three consecutive occasions pleace tell me. I have no idea of
the answer. If you can answer in trite phrases, don't :her to write.
Theorems like "that's football" or "that's what makes the game what
it is" do not really answer anything, even if they are true.
Perhaps a somewhat specific analysis of Saturday's game will come
closer to the sensible and meaningful.
To begin with, Michigan was not a spectacular team for most of
the game. Iowa almost ran the Wolverines off the field in the second
quarter, scoring twice and just
missing another touchdown before
the half. Michigan made mistakes,
and not just a few. The defense
was porous, and the offense, save
Ron Kramer's field goal, seemed
to lack much spark and finesse.
Fortunately for Michigan this
time (and unfortunately for toe
Blue a week earlier) games are
often won in the dressing room be-
tween halves. I have no idea of
what Coach Bennie Oosterbaan
and his aides said to the players
during the band show-or how
they said it. Whatever it was-if it
was-it worked.
In what could be called a form
reversal from previous games the
Wolverines played the Hawkeyes
off their feet for most of the sec-
ond half. There were still mis-
takes on defense-Iowa quarter- JIM MADDOCK
back Ken Ploen raced through ... terrorizes Iowa
Michigan's alignments with com-
parative ease-but Michigan had it whenever it was needed. To be
sure, "it" was needed Saturday.
"Who Is Shatusky?"
MIKE SHATUSKY was moved up to second string right halfback
because Terry Barr was sidelined with an ankle injury. Soon,
Shatusky found himself in the midst of the battle, because Ed Shannon
also got banged up. "Who is Shatusky?" they howled in the press box.
Pretty soon they found out. Pretty soon everyone found out.
I suppose that Shatusky was a boon to all sportswriters working
the game. Members of the Fourth Estate love it when an "unknown"
becomes a hero overnight. And Shatusky deserves all the praises
heaped upon him-but the individual stars of the game, if I must
make a choice, were Jim Maddock and John Herrnstein.
If Michigan played Iowa nine times each year, Maddock would
take his place among the all-time football greats. He was superb on
Saturday, as he was against Iowa in '55 and in '54. He led the team
during the final minutes-the minutes where every play had to work,
where every pass had to click.
Herrnstein was equally majestic, bulling, squirming, bouncing for
those all-important short gains. He has come a long way in this, his
rookie year. A review of the game would not be complete without a
mention of the linemen-Kramer, Tom Maentz, Al Sigman, Jim Or-
wig, Dick Hill, Mary Nyren, Mike Rotunno and others-who fought
hard against a fine Iowa line.
Now it is Illinois which is on the horizon. Barr is healng quickly,
and may be ready. Hill is healthier, as are Willie' Smith and Rotunno.
The injury outlook is improving, which makes the Wolverines feel a
little more secure in the twilight of the present Big Ten season.
