Michigan Ends Grid Season
With 7-2 Overall Record

A M' Letter Winners
All 1956 football M' winners are to report at Rentschler's

- , .

THE REPORTERS filed into the little room at the back of the
dressing, room. The pudgy little man sat down at his desk and
took off, his trade-marked cap. The reporters started to fire the cus-
tomary post-game questions. His answers came, in a low, weak voice.
At first, I wondered whether this was the Woody Hayes I had
heard and read about. He praised Michigan as a fine team. There
was "no bitterness, no tears, no derision. His commentary was ob-
jective, analytical, and apparently fair. Then someone asked a very
ordinary question, and Woody Hayes came into his own.
(That ramer's a fine end, isn't he." The comment was thrown
in by a scribe at the back of the room. Hayes turned his head down
and muttered, "He's all right." There was no smile. He didn't give
anyone theimpression that he was kidding.
A little while later he commented on the resemblance of last
year's score to Saturday's score.
"We beat Michigan last year, 17-0.
Today we lost to the same team,
19-0. The scores were similar, but
that's where the resemblance
ends. You'll notice that, in the
closing minutes of today's game,
my men played like gentlemen."
He was referring, of course, to
last year's fiasco, which almost
ended in a free-for-all. Michigan
had disobeyed Hayes' Rules of Or-
der then by tangling with the
Buckeyes during the final min-
WOODY HAYES utes of Ohio's 17-0 win. Hayes'
... iRules of Order' Rules of Order, however, have no
provisions included which make
it mandatory for the winning team to be polite. Both teams were ob-
viously at fault. Anyway, I don't see why Hayes brought the subject
up. It was in poor taste.
As was his remark about Kramer. The huge end, playing his
final footb ll game for Michigan, was at his greatest. He literally
flew through the air on several occasions to bring down Buckeye
ball .carriers. On offense or defense, he was more than superb. But
to Aayes, he was just "all right."
H yes - Not The Exception .
HAY.S, unfortunately, is not an exception in Columbus. Rather,
he is the rule. The Buckeye fans are after his neck. High Street,
the hub of alumni activity, is reportedly discontented with the ener-
geti coach.'Everybody hates everyone else down there - unless the
team wins..
Never have I seen a collection of so-called 'fans' like there were
at dolumbus. The mob reminded me of what I had read in history
books about the lions in ancient Rome. The Columbus contingent
makes no hones about one fact - they hate Michigan, but I don't
think they are pleased with themselves, either.
Ann Arbor, its snow notwithstanding, seemed nicer than ever
Sunday morning.

(Continued from Page 1)
or share, Ohio State, instead, was
dropped to a tie for fourth in the
standings. The grumblings of
alumni, press, and fans can still
be heard.
But more important, Saturday's
team victory had elements of per-
sonal satisfaction for Michigan's
senior-laden squad.
Probably the most recognition
should go to end Ron Kramer, who
played an outstanding game pri-
marily on defense to climax his
"All-American" college career.
Kramer was all over the field with
a vigor that characterized the
Wolverines' great desire to win.
For Terry Barr, Michigan's ver-
satile right half, it marked the
end of an impressive career slowed

Okla1 oma's slick Sooners have
moved within sight of their sec-
ond straight national football
championship after receiving an-
other vote of confidence from writ-
ers and broadcasts.
With the final balloting only a
week away, Oklahoma held a 95-
point bulge over runnerup Tennes-
see in the latest tabulations.

Tennessee Lead AP Poll

The Sooners, tied with Washing-
ton for the all-time record of con-
secutive victories at 39, convinced
81 of the 159 participating sports
writers and announcers they de-
served first spot. Oklahoma beat
Nebraska Saturday, 54-6.
Both play another game before
the final poll-Oklahoma against

the Oklahoma Aggies and Tennes-
see against Vanderbilt.
Iowa, which has completed it
best season since 1922 with the
Big Ten title and a Rose Bowl
trip, held third place for a repeat
of last week's 12-2-3 finish.
Ga. Tech Gains
Georgia Tech, which swept past
fast - moving -and highly - rated
Florida 28-0, moved up from fifth
to fourth in a switch with unbeat-
en, once-tied Texas A&M.
The remainder of the top 10 in
order were Miami, Michigan, Syra-

sota. By belting Ohio State 19-0,
Michigan advanced to seventh

Fired Up
Michigan had been fired up-all
week. "Before the game I thought
we could win," commented Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan in the dressing
room after the game. There was
a tired smile on his face.
The reasons for such an impres-
sive Michigan victory seem to be
pointed toward a combination of

Michigan's defense was able to
diagnose a good many of the OSU
plays and hold when it had to.

are ladled out


These days, it's very often that you
find a guy wearing this Arrow Glen
button-down. It rates plenty of praise for.
its trim-tailored collar and harmonizing colors
(newest is a subtle blue). There are a dozen shades
to choose from in oxford or broadcloth ... and a
new Arrow silk striped tie to top it off.
