dominance over 81 of the 90 foes they
have faced. Of the nine teams having
an edge in victories, five have been
played only once. Cornell has the
best record over the Wolverines with
11 wins to five Michigan triumphs,
the last game with the Big Reds
occurring in 1933, when the U of M
handed them a 40-0 pasting.
Big Ten Rivalries Best
Michigan's sharpest rivalries have
been with three Big Ten foes, Chi-
cago, Ohio State, and Minnesota.
The Golden Gophers have provided

the most trouble, defeating the Wol-
verines 13 times while the Maize and
Blue have turned the trick 15. Min-
nesota's last victory was in 1942,
when a disputed field-goal gave them
the game, 16-14.
The margin of wins over the Buck-
eyes is much larger, Michigan vic-
tories standing at 27, Ohio State's
at 12, with three ties thrown in. The
Bucks did not succeed in beating
Michigan until 1919 when they won
13-3. After repeating twice they
again suffered consecutive losses un-
til 1928, and since then the odds have
been even.
Coaches Originally Students
During the first few years of Michi-
gan football, coaches were picked

from the student body, itself, and it
wasn't until 1891 that a special per-
son was hired for the job. From 1891
to 1900 five men-Murphy, Barbour,
McMauley, Ferbert, and Lea-led the
Wolverines.
In 1901 the immortal Fielding H.
Yost came to Ann Arbor, and began
producing some of the greatest foot-
ball machines the gridiron world has
ever seen. His "point-a-minute",
teams during their five-year reign
scored 55 triumphs while losing only
one and tying one. The lone loss,
which broke the undefeated string,
came in the final game of 1905 when
Chicago eked out a 2-0 victory: The
tie was a 6-6 affair with Minnesota.
During the five years Michigan

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _N_ _i__ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _i i I

scored 2821 points while holding their
opponents to an insignificant 42. This
included a phenomenal 130-0 massa-
cre of West Virginia, a 128-0 blast-
ing of Buffalo, a 119-0 murder of
Michigan State, and a 107-0 shellack-
ing of Iowa.
Yost coached Michigan football
from 1901 until 1927, excluding a one-
year interval in 1924 when Lou Little
took over. In 1927 the Grand Old
Man retired to become athletic direc-
tor, and Tad Wieman took his place.
In the same year, the Michigan Stad-
ium, with its 86,000 capacity, was
opened.
Wieman was succeeded in 1929 by
Harry Kipke, who remained until
1938 when H. O. "Fritz" Crisler

moved in. Coach Crisler is now
launching his ninth season, a season
made completely unpredictable by
returning veterans and the continued
eligibility of freshmen.

each failed to hit the .500 spot on
foreign soil. Cliff Keen's men took all
three of their home matches but
could win only two of five on the
road.
It took the World Champion De-
troit Tigers to hand the Maize and
Blue baseball team its lone home loss

of the year. The Wolverine nineI
breezed through 10 college oppon-r
ents on the Ferry Field diamond.
Away from home Ray Fisher's outfit
salted away eight of ten contests, but
the pair of setbacks cost them the
Big Ten title.
Matt Mann's swimmers did well
both at home and on the road. Out
of nine meets the natators took
seven, three at home and four away
while losing to Great Lakes here
and'Ohio State at Columbus. Fritz
Crisler's football team played both
Army and Navy on unfamiliar
ground, but managed to break even
away from home with a two and
two mark. On Michigan Stadium
turf they took five of six.

Only the Wolverine tennis ar
outdoor track teams failed to turn :
winning records at home. The ne
men snagged only two of six at Feri
Field but turned around and swel
