It's great to be a winner at anything? You feel like you're sitting
on top of the world and you've got the moon on a string.
Losing, well that's another matter. You either deserved to get
beat or, "Well, we should'a won if so and so ...'
But a tie. Well that's different, too. There's a strange feeling
that goes with coming out even with the opposition. The happiness
and pride that accompany a victory are gone. But yet you can't
really complain because you didn't lose.
Still, there's somewhat of a letdown with a tie. Especially after
you've had victory apparently within your grasp. There's a feeling
that your team is the superior team, but in the long run, everything
came out even. There are some who advocate overtime periods to
solve ties, but this actually wouldn't prove anything. If a team can't
prove its superiority over an opponent in 60 minutes, the two teams
are obviously pretty evenly matched. What will an extra ten minutes
Third Quarter Blues ..
This all brings us around to the much asked but little answered
question of the day, "What happens to Michigan after the half?"
ri For three weeks now Michigan has looked like world beaters
in the first half. But in a game consisting of four quarters, you have
to play the third one, too, and this has been Michigan's nemesis for
three weeks now.
Two times they caught themselves before disaster. Yesterday,
* they never did recover as Iowa played the blue shirts off their feet
after the intermission.
Some say overconfidence is the reason. Maybe. Some say Michigan
quits and is only as good as it has to be. This breeds defeat, they
contend. Others simply explain it in terms of the other teams being
fired up by a halftime pep talk.
Bennie Oosterbaan says nothing. He's as much perplexed about
the problem as you and I and can't put his finger on what's wrong. He
simply says, "It's one of those strange things about football, I can't
Michigan Changed Strategy ..
It's true that Michigan changed its strategy at halftime yesterday.
After blitzing, Iowa's defenses with a lightning-like passing attack
in the second qu'arter that provided a 21-7 cushion, the Wolverines
discarded the forward pass as a weapon in the second half and were
content to protect their lead, according to Oosterbaan.
They couldn't do it. Iowa got the ball four times and scored twice.
Michigan stuck to the ground and threatened, were rebuffed, and only
meekly threatened once thereafter. A fumble killed their last hopes
on the Iowa 19 with the score tied.
Iowa, meanwhile, moved behind its hulking line and knifed
through the Michigan defense both on the ground and in the air.
The pass play from Randy Duncan to Jim Gibbons or Don Horn
in the right flat gave Michigan fits all day. But again, "Any well
executed passing attack will give you trouble," said Oosterbaan. And
Idwa's offense in the second half was precise, to say the least.
Games Are 60 Minutes . .
Don't get the idea Michigan deserved to win. They didn't.
Against'Iowa they learned that you have to play 60 minutes of
' fighting football. If 30 minutes were enough, the game would be over
at that time. As much confidence as Michigan oozed in the second
quarter, they bordered equally close to ineptness in the last half. Iowa
simply beat them to the punch and took the storybook role away from
The Michigan fans reacted in typical fashion yesterday. Whipped
to a frenzy in the second quarter by the exploits of Jim Pace, etc.,
this carried over a bit, into the second half. But as usual, the fans
then waited for the team to do something on the field to continue their
cheering, rather than spurring the athletes on with vocal support.
Whether this had any effect is mere speculation.
But as President Hatcher once said, "If winning was all that
counted in football, the game would be only half successful, because
for every winner there must be a loser." One tie shouldn't ruin a
season. Next week Illinois can test the Wolverines ability to come
back. You know, they say the really good teams always do.

Ohio State took the undisputed
Big Ten Conference lead and a
giant stride toward the Rose Bowl
yesterday by blasting Northwest-
ern's Wildcats, 47-6, for its fourth
straight league victory.
The victory, coupled with the
21-21 Iowa-Michigan tie, leveled
the road to Pasadena for Ohio.
The Bucks could lose one of their
three remaining games and still
get the Rose Bowl bid.

Jim Ninowski's passes, plus a
powerhouse Spartan line that re-

brought Michigan State to a 21-7
victory over Wisconsin.
Michigan State took an early
lead, thanks to Ninowski's passes,
only to have the Badgers tie the
score in the second quarter. The
Spartans quickly went back into'
the lead, then added a third touch-
down in a light rain during the
last seconds of play.
Ninowski, the Big Ten's leading
passer, put his team into position

some fine tosses. A great return

With Bobby Cox knocked out
