Rival teams who outlueked Minnesota earlier this season* unanimously agreed: "The Gophers will win some football games this year." The question before the assembly assembly today was: Will they: It's a fair question and one that's hard to outflank. Except for the Indiana meeting two weeks from now Minnesota has exhausted the games it was given a chance to win in the preseason preseason reckoning. fh« futures chart on Minnesota was dniy partly right. The Gophers have* played an infinitely better quality of football than had been anticipated, but they still haven't won a game in four tries. Their 20-6 loss to Illinois here Saturday was the Minnesotans' seventh in a row reaching back to 1937. The Gophers have lost nine of their last ten and the prospects of breaking the pattern against Michigan at Ann Arbor this Week aren't the cheeriest — although certainly not impossible. One thing seems fairly certain. The season has reached the atagi where the use of younger players for longer stretches Is neatly demanded demanded by next year's needs, Coach Murray Warmath heade in this direction against Illinois by testing an all-sophomore backfiele of quarterback Joe Salem, half backs Bill Kauth and Gary Mel chert and fullback Roger Hag berg. Kauth and Hagberg qualify as semiregulars but the others have played little previously. Yet it was this unit that was Minnesota' most exciting offensive force o ?

The unbeaten Gusties were alone n front of the pack; after their blue chip 18-7 victory over St. John's, and were powerful favor- tes to regain the title that once was.their private preserve. If Gustavus makes it, Mlnne- ota's top two college football championships will wind up in the hands of country neighbors. Mankato State, just a short trek from the Gusties acres in St. Peter, wrapped up the title of the fledgling Northern States Conference Conference Saturday night by defeating casualty-ridden Winona State, 3512. 3512. Gustavus has only two more games remaining, against a possibly possibly tough St. Thomas and second division Hamline. The Gusties Pope- will infected Northwestern, Iowa Key Game in Big Ten By CHARLES CHAMBERLAIN Associated Press Sports Writer So far, Northwestern has made one of the greatest comebacks in Big Ten football history. The Wildcats, who didn't win a game last season, now are 4-0 over all and 2-0 in the conference.

The Hawkeyes became a prominent prominent title contender by knocking off Wisconsin 20-9. The Badgers will try to collect themselves this week before invading Ohio State Saturday. It will be the defending champion Buckeyes' homecoming. Rounding out Saturday's program, program, Michigan State is Illinois' homecoming foe, Minnesota is at Michigan for the traditional Little Brown Jug engagement, Purdue continues its rivalry at Notre Dame and Indiana entertains Miami of Ohio. Michigan absorbed one of its worst beatings in its history from play- Hamline this week in St. Paul. The only teams with a chance to catch up are St. John's arid Concordia, Concordia, and one of those will be eliminated in their head to head meeting late this month. Concordia flattened Macalester 52-0 Saturday night, Hamline gained its first bonafide MIAC vie- tory in four years by defeating Augsburg 22-14, and Duluth Branch 'downed St. Thomas 7-6. In the Northern States, Bemidji defeated Moorhead 48-7 and St. Cloud lost a non-conference game to Wartburg, 15-6. In the Midwest Conference, Carleton stayed in the title running running by pounding Lawrence 42-8 for its fourth victory against one loss. St. Olaf lost to Monmouth 20-12. Gets Thrills Early A record Gustavus Crowd of 8,356 8,356 got its thrills early in the St. John's battle. All of the scoring was jammed into a volcanic first half, after which Gustavus had the game more or less under control. Dean Brown went six yards to score in the first period for Gustavus Gustavus but Duane Deutz' running sent St. John's into a 7-6 margin late in the quarter. Gustavus, using using Dick Johnson's running and an occasional pass by Bob Swiggum to get most of its yardage, mounted mounted another long drive and Dick Dalton scored from the 16. the day and produced the Gopher's only touchdown in a hurry in the third |M!rtdd. Sophomore end Dick Johnson also fiained some admiriers, but lost his temper and got kicked out of the game In the first half. An btheif sophomore, guatd Tom Brown, an established regular now, was the best'defensive lineman lineman on the field, Can't Explain Losses Warmath, at a loss to explain how so many things could go wrong to a team that has played sound football, insists his 1958 line is the finest he has put together at Minnesota. "We're still not disheartened,' he said. "This is a fighting team that just isn't going to quit no matter what the season record is.' It wasn't the breaks that whipped whipped the Gophers Saturday. That job was accomplished by the passing passing partnership of Bob ickey and Rich Kreitling, plus a pair of pass defense lapses. An 83-yard pass play in the first quarter moved Illinois ahead and a 66-yarder, on the identical play, snuffed out an 8-7 Gopher lead in the third period. Both passes, although they were two of the mightiest at Memorial Stadium in years, worked so easily they more closely resembled a practice-field milk run than clutch plays under game pressure. Line Is Aggressive Before and between those pass es Minnesota's line played a superbly superbly aggressive game, throwing back two Illinois threats that resulted resulted from fumbles. The Gophers, too, had their chances but couldn't cash until Salem directed a drive that ended when the Sioux Falls, S.D., quar- ;erback passed five yards to Bruce Hammond. Salem's run for the 2- point conversion gave Minnesota a ead that lasted for two plays- he time it took for Hickey to get us hands on the ball and pass to Sreitling. The other Illinois touchdown, scored by Dick McDade, flowed >om Minnesota fourth quarter gambling. Wallow in Penalties During the first half the teams wallowed in penalties — 155 yards of them — and while the assessment assessment against each team was almost almost identical, Warmath feels the Jophers were hurt more. Twice, irst down runs by Jim Reese in Illinois territory were called back. On the other hand, Illinois wasn't exactly inspired by the 90 yards if penalties it absorbed the first half. Minnesota violations cost 85 ards. Looks Like Pro Champs Out of Gas By DAVE DILES Associated Press Sports Writer DETROIT (AP) - Professional 'ootball's gashouse gang may be Hit of gas. In a four-week span, the De- roit Lions have gone from defend- ng world champions to a team rying desperately to escape last place. They lost to the Baltimore Colts Sunday 40-14 and have only a tie to show in four games. When the Lions' come-from-be- lind,magicians rolled to the title ast year in one of the wildest races in National Pooball League history, they drew acclaim as "ootball's gash6use gang. Coach George Wilson recalled after Sunday's defeat; "Someone said we used up 10 Navy Coach Takes Blame for Setback By WHITNEY MARTIN Associated Press Sports Writer NORFOLK, Va. (ffi — Coach Eddit Erdelatz is taking the blame for Navy's 14-6 defeat by Tulane in the Oyster Bowl Saturday. Saturday. The setback knocked the Middies Middies from the Cranks of the unbeaten, unbeaten, and the victory was the first in five starts for Tulane this year, Refuses to Alibi "I have no alibis," Erdelate said frankly. "The boys played * good game and I take full blame for the defeat. I made some bad :alls. I was caught second guessing guessing a couple of times in the first quarter and I think that's what beat us." The burly Navy coach lauded the play of Tulane. He said he had looked for a tough game, but "I did expect Tulane to pass more." Everyone else did too, and that's where the Greenies took the Middies Middies by surprise. Tulane found it could run well against the Navy defense and didn't need to risk pass interceptions. The key point in the game might have been in the first couple couple of minutes. Navy had recovered recovered a tulane fumble on the Tu- ane 21. Four plays later Tulane ook the ball on downs on the 10. That early success could have inspired inspired the Greenies to greater ef- 'ort. Had Navy scored, it might lave broken the game wide open. Once aware of its ability to hold ;he Middies, and to run with the ball, Tulane took over and practi- :ally dominated the game except or the rousing Navy aerial touchdown touchdown drive, sparked by the.pass- ing of Joe Tranchini. Turns in Fine Job Tulane's Richie Petibon did everything everything a fine quarterback is upposed to do, and did it superb- y. Running with the speed and lower and elusiveness, he gained 88 yards in 18 carries. He completed completed two of four passes for 24 yards, and on defense he was just bout perfect.
