you will become depressed.
4. At least one wise guy will say, "I don't see what all the fuss
was about. You look well fed."
5. If you live in the East, more than one person will ask you
how school is in East Lansing. You will then give the person a
short lecture on the State college system in Michigan.

6. Your friends will bring up the subject of California . . . and
you will feel more depressed.

Iowa won the Big Ten cham-
pionship and a Rose Bowl trip to
Pasadena, but Michigan and Ohio
State proved to be the leading of-
fensive and defensive teams re-
spectively for the 1956 season.
Michigan . State outgained the
Wolverines 325.5 yards a game to
322.3 and led in scoring, 22 points
a game to 20.4 points for Michi-
gan. A wide margin for Michigan
in first downs, in which the Spar-
tans were tied for fourth, was suf-
ficient to provide an edge in the
final standings.
Purdue Leads Yardage
Ohio State failed to lead in any
of the three defensive depart-
ments. Purdue was first in yard-
age allowance, giving up 215.4
yards a game, with Iowa in second
place. The Boilermakers also gave
up the fewest first downs. Iowa
held their opponents to 7.3 points
a game, giving up the fewest
points in the conference.
The individual player statistics
were dominated by a pair of
Boilermakers.
Iowa ranked no higher than
sixth in offense and fourth in de-
fense. The Hawkeyes, however, al-
lowed their opponents only 2.9
yards per running play and that
one statistic is a principal clue
to the team's success.
Len Dawson, Purdue's brilliant

passing specialist, became the first
player on record to lead the Big
Ten in both passing and total of-
fense for three years. Fullback
Mel Dillard won rushing honors.
Dillard's principal rival for
rushing honors, Abe Woodson of
Illinois, failed to make a race of
it as a result of an injury and
ended with a net of 500 yards.
Dillard gained 634 yards on the
ground. Galen Cisco, Ohio full-
back, had the best average per
play, .7.5 yards.
Wilson Second in Passing
Pat Wilson, MSU quarterback,
was second to Dawson in pass-
ing. Bob Ptacek, Michigan's soph-
omore halfback,ranked sixth.
Frank Ellwood of Ohio led in
scoring with 39 points. The Wol-
verine's Terry Barr tied for sec-
ond with Bobby Cox at 36 points.
Brad Bomba of Indiana took
pass catching honors with 25 re-
ceptions. Michigan's All Ameri-
can, Ron Kramer, placed second
with 15.
Clarence Peaks of Michigan
State, injured in mid-season, had
a punting average of 40.9 yards.
Harry Jefferson of Illinois led in
kickoff returns and Dennis Men-
dyk of Michigan State in punt
returns. Mendyk also shared a
lead with Bill Happel of Iowa
and Ed Quinn of Northwestern in
pass interceptions at three.
