Joy and Disappointment
MICHIGAN'S locker room was crowded with the season's largest
post-game flock of well-wishers yesterday afternoon.
Little boys were permitted to get autographs from the stars who
would never again play in Michigan Stadium. Avid adult Wolverine
fans took advantage of the opportunity to mingle with the victoriousr
players for the last time this season.
There was a lot of excitement in the locker room. But there was
also an air of expectation. Despite the Wolverines' impressive high-
scoring triumph over Indiana, full satisfaction could not be achieved
unless Iowa and Minnesota went down to defeat.
Although we didn't stay around for the final scores to come in
--both outcomes were still in doubt when we left-we can well imagine
the disappointment that is now
being shared by the members of
perhaps the best Michigan foot--
ball team in recent years.
A Wolverine squad that posses-
sed almost unstoppable offense
and usually dependable defense
yesterday became the first Michi-
gan team in three years to go into
its last week of the season with-
out a chance to go to the Rose
Bowl or to gain at least a tie for.
the Big Ten championship.-
Instead, the Wolverines must be9
content with knowing that Iowa :
will be the Conference's second
straight Bowl representative to
have only a loss to Michigan mar-
ring an otherwise perfect season.
M i c h i g a n performed like a TERRY BARR
champion yesterday. All the sen- ... three TDs
fors played-most of them sensa-
tionally-and Coach Bennie Oosterbaan was able to substitute freely
enough to give the fans something of a preview of next year's team.-
Michigan's All-American ends Ron Kramer and team Captain
Tom Maentz played their last games in Ann Arbor with their usual
brilliance. Together they caught but one pass-an unbelievable snatch3
by Kramer while hemmed in by two defenders-but their solid tack-
ling and key blocking was enough to keep them in the class of the
best in the nation.
Starting seniors Dick Hill, Mike Rotunno and Al Sigman were
instrumental in opening up the gaping holes in the Indiana line that
permitted Michigan to gain 275 yards on the ground.
Barr. Leads Scorers .. .
TERRY BARR returned to his best form for his home finale. With
six rushes, a pass and a pass reception, Barr accounted for 140
yards gained as he scored three touchdowns. Ed Shannon hit paydirt
twice himself to add to the achievements of the Wolverine seniors.
Jim Maddock ended his Ann Arbor quarterbacking duties by calling
the plays for three of the touchdown drives.
At the same time fellows like Bob Ptacek, Jim Pace, John Herrn-
stein, Mike Shatusky, Gary Prahst and John Spidel gave promise for
the future with their fine performances.
Ptacek, who will be around for two more years, was especially
valuable as he led the ground-gainers with 104 yards on nine carries,
besides completing three of six passes for 47 yards.
Pace, a junior, and Herrnstein, a sophomore, rolled up a lot of
key yardage, while Shatusky, a second-semester junior, scored his
third touchdown of the season on a perfect pass reception. Prahst
and Spidel are just sophs and promised yesterday that with added
experience they will be Wolverine backfield stars.
This isn't the time for a post mortem of the season or for a dis-
cussion of next year's team, however. We still have a game left on the
schedule this year. As usual, the result of the Ohio State game will
go far in determining the success or failure of the Wolverine season.
A victory this Saturday at Columbus will not only make the Big
Ten's representative to the Rose Bowl-Iowa-the undisputed Con-
ference champion, but it will also avenge two years of frustration
suffered at the hands of Ohio State. That would be enough to make
the season a reasonable success.
