Soph Tackle I1iggest Individual IDe-
fense Factor Against Big
Red Team
Michigan's success in using the for-
ward pass against Crnell last Satur-
day, coupled with the pleasing fashion
in which the backs headed by Maul-
betsch, gained through. the line, means
that the Wolverines will present a
varied attack against the Pennsylvan-
Pennsylvania scouts were, perhaps,
among the most interested spectators
present at last week's game, and the
showing of the Wolverines has given
them considerable food for long and
serious reflection.
Johnny Maulbetsch never played a
better game of football in his life than
he did against the Ithacans and the
records uphold this assertion. Thus
the Pennsylvanians will have to watch
the Michigan line plunging all after-
noon. In addition to this, the success
which greeted Michigan's early efforts
at passing is bound to occasion con-
siderable anxiety in the Quaker vil-
if'Sparks is in shape and playing,
and present indications seem to point
to the fact that he will, still a third
complexity will be added, for Sparks
can kick. Cornell was practically as-
sured that Michigan wasn't going to
punt unless Dunne dropped bal.
Thus she merely had to watch for
passes and line plays. Pennsylvania
will have to' keep allthree in mind,
and two of these proved too big a
problem for Cornell to solve success-
Line Coach Pontius is going to work
'on the line all week and the men will
enter this final battle of the season
knowing just as much football as Mil-
ler can possibly teach them. Pennsyl-
vania comes to town with her entire
strength lying in her line. According
to early reports, the Philadelphians
have an unusually strong wall with a
weak backfield. Berry has shown
flashes of real form in the backfield
but he has been uncertain and too
flighty to be depended upon as a cer-
tainty. The line, however, has been
,doing its duty in splendid fashion.
"Tad"Wieman played first class foot-
ball for the Wolverines at Ithaca and
was just about the biggest individual
factor that the Maize and Blue had in
a defensive way. Coach Pontius states
that Wieman has been improving rap-
idly all season and that he has the
makings of a great tackle. Wieman
is a natural athlete and is learning
rapidly. When "Tad" was on the Pa-
cific coast he was rated as one of the
finest all-round athletes in the far
west. He was unacquainted with the
style of football that is played around
these sections, but he learned rapidly
and is now offering just about the
surest defense that Michigan has.
Boyd worked well while he was in
against Cornell. Gracey will probably
receive the call next Saturday as he
is a more experienced man and there-
fore a trifle more steady. Coach Pon-
tius stated that Boyd's work has been
satisfactory on every occasion when he
has been shoved into the lineup and
this gives Michigan three capable

guards. Rehor played a first class
game against Cornell and perhaps
ranked along with Wieman as deserv-
ing the name of Michigan's best de-
fensive cog. Rehor was at the bottom
of the pile so often that he began to
long for that position and didn't feel
at home anywhere else.
Coach Yost stated during the seasonr
that one of Michigan's greatest weak-
nesses lay in the fact that she had no
capable substitutes. This remark
hardly seems to hold good now. Mar-;
tens,. as substitute end, has played
some first class football for Michigan.
In fact,-it looked for a while as though
he were going to crowd one of the
regulars out of a position. At tackle
there is Jimmy Whalen, and Whalen
is an "M" man already. Boyd and
Gracey are so closely matched ati
guard that the coach is in doubt as to;
which of the pair to select when the
game starts, which would indicate
that the Wolverines weren't lacking
for a capable substitute in this direc-
Skinner is ready to step into Npie-
mann's shoes at any moment and he1

has shown up consistently all year.
Zeiger stands ready as a substitute
qurter and the work of this youngster
needs no more mention or connent.
ianish is understudying Smith at
fullback and l3razell, Raymond, Eg-
gert and a host of others have been
filling in at right half. Theoretically
fhe position has seemed to belong to
Sharpe but as a matter of fact he
hasn't been able to claim it all year
due to injuries.
Tut Is No Frend
of the Humble Sub
Col. Harry Tuthill, commonly known
as thea famous "boy trainer" who looks
after the condition of the Michigan
gridders, is as the sages would call it,
"in bad" with the substitutes on the
Varsity squad. The second stringers
haven't any objection to "Tut" person-
ally, and they are all strong for his
funny stories, but he neverthless gets
a "thumbs down" vote from these
lads when his training ability is
brought up.
The reason for Harry's standing with
the substitutes Is due to his line of
business-training. They think he is
too blamed good at the job, for he
gets the first team in such good shape
that a poor guy on the side lines hasn't
a ghost of a show to get into the game
and win an "'M."
Last Saturday, Michigan had over
two full teams along to make sure
that .herewould always be 11 good
men cut there on the field to keep
their red-jerseyed opponents busy. The
bench-warmers were only spectators,
however, and they looked upon the
battle andlsighed in vain for a chance
to get their hands in the gore.
Along with everything else except
punting and goal-kicking, Michigan
played rings around Dr. Sharpe's grid-
ders in the matter of condition. The
Red team took time out on innumer-
able occasions, and made a wholej
flock of substitutions. Taylor for Jew-
ett, Bard for Miller, Dixon for Taylor,
Jewett for Dixon, Brown for Carry,
Haucke for Hoffman, and Zander for
Ryerson constituted a regular parade
of substitutions for the Ithacans.
Michigan, on the other hand, used only
two men during the scrap who didn't
start at the initial gun. Boyd played
Gracey's position at. left guard during
the third quarter, but not because
Gracey wasn't able to continue, as the
big guard was in good shape when he
left the game and in fact returned
during the final quarter. Yost put
Sparks in for Raymond during the
closing minutes of the struggle be-
cause he was hopeful that Cliff would
get away with a long run from' punt
formation and give Michigan a chance
to score another touchdown on the
Michigan's abilit to stand the brunt
of the battle was not due to the fact
that the Ithacans were tackling with
silken gloves or throwing bon-bons on
the offensive. The exhibition of vicious
tackling and piling up demonstrated
by Cornell was as open and evident
as ever seen on any football field, but
Michigan was in the physical condition
to stand the gaff. At one time, little
Harold Zeiger who can only boost the
scales to 143 pounds, was hit by two
big Red men, and when the trio hit
the ground the spectators expected
Yost to start hunting for somebody to
take up the quarterback duties. Zeiger
jumped right up, however, and hur-
ried to his post. The two Cornell men
lay on the ground knocked out.
"Dick" Weske gave a splendid ex-
hibition of courage by playing Satur-

day's game with a number of boils on
his body. The scrappy tackle didn't
allow his boils to interfere a bit with
a brilliant performance at his place in
the line.
