Goebel Bolsters Michigan at Center, LineI



Improves Mi
Gridders Wor
"Definitely a team player, high
spirited, very aggressive."
These were the words -which
Wolverine Coach Bennie Ooster-
baan emphasized when he spoke
about his first string center, Jerry
Goebel was a standout at center
for the Wolverines in 1955 when as
a sophomore he rotated with senior
Larry Bates at the first string pivot
Sidelined by Injury
He was expected to take full
possession of that job in 1956 but
a broken leg, in the offseason kept
4i1m from the gridiron for the en-
tire fall.
Coming back for the 1957 season
Hoosiers Drop
Two Starters
diana University, who has yet to
win a Big Ten fotball game, yes-
terday dismissed two starting
players from their already under-
manned squad.
Halfback Victor Jones, second
leading ground-gainer for the
Hoosiers, and end Tom Aucreman
who are both sophomores were
dropped because of "repeated vio-
lation of training rules" according
to Acting Coach Bob Hicks.

Idle of Line;
rk on Passing
Goebel wasn't even classified in
the pre-season lineups.
The aggressive 6'3" senior from
Grosse Pointe, however, wasted no;
time in showing that he was ready
for more of the rugged football
which he was accustomed to play-
By the time the USC game rolled
around he was up to second string.
Three games passed and by the
time of the Wolverines' homecom-
ing game against Northwestern, he
was on the first eleven.
Improves Game
Oosterbaan also commented that
both Goebel's blocking and defen-
sive play have improved. Speaking
about last week's game the Wol-
verine coach praised the blond
senior who plays left linebacker
for his good defensive pass cover-
Yesterda.'s practice centered on
passing. It started out with offen-
sive aerial drills and carried on
through defensive passing drills.
The practice also featured a defen-
sive scrimmage.
Looking to this week, Oosterbaan
said that Byers will start at the
fullback slot even though Herrn-
stein is working out. However, he
did not ignore the possibility that
Herrnstein might be used at some
time during the game.
Another change in the Wolverine
lineup will have Chuck Teuscher
at second string right end, re-
placing the injured Dave Bowers.



SPECTACULAR COMEBACK-Jerry Goebel, who appeared on the
Michigan scene as a fine sophomore prospect in 1955, but missed
last season because of a broken leg, has broken into the first string
lineup this season exhibiting much improvement and aggressive

Limit Bowl
There are only four weeks left
for most major colleges to com-
plete their 1957 football schedules.
As every season draws to a close,
the eyes of the public scan the
pages of papers across the country
to see what teams are rated at the
top of the collegiate list. The pub-
lic knows that it is generally these
teams that they will be seeing on
television New Year's Day, playing
in the major bowl games.
Several Bans
But this year there are several
possible candidates that won't
make it to the bowls-not because
they aren't good enough, but be-
cause of an organization com-
monly known as the NCAA-the
National Collegiate Athletic Asso-
At least three teams - North
Carolina State, Auburn and UCLA
-are on probation. They are ban-
ned from bowl games and post-
season and championship compe-
tition in all sports,
These three teams are the major
ones that had the best chances of
being invited to participate in bowl
North Carolina State is rated
tenth in this week's AP poll after
tying Duke last Saturday. But the
Wolfpack was handed one of the
stiffest penalties ever handed out
by the NCAA for a basketball re-
cruiting viloation last year. They
were placed on probation for a
four-year period, which won't end
until November of 1960.
Auburn Out
At the present time, Auburn,
rated fourth, is the leader of the
Southeastern Conference. The SEC
champion almost invariably gets
a bowl bid and sometimes the run-
ner-up is also invited.
Some Escape
Three of the better teams were
recently removed from probation.
Ohio State is back in contention in
the Big Ten, and Oklahoma and
Texas A&M, presently rated one-
two nationally, completed their
terms earlier this year, freeing
them for almost definite bowl in-

Associated Press ranking poll as
Texas A&M took over the lead.

Jones, whose performance was

Roth starred as he ran and passed
the Pi Lams to victory.

by a gusty wind, passed for both
touchdowns to John Nelson.
In the highest scoring game of
the day, Delta Sigma Phi rolled
over Tau Kappa Epsilon, 20-7.
This second-place "A" playoff
was highlighted by two sensa-
tional plays for Delta Sigma Phi.
One was a 45-yd. runback of an
intercepted pass by Tom Sadowski
for a touchdown, and the other
was a 30-yd. pass from Dick Hoek
to Dick Grimes for the final
