Good Ends, Weight in Line on Credit Side for Gophers By JIM KLOBUCHAR Associated Press Sports Writer MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota's Minnesota's 1958 football team will have Big Ten class at the ends, weight !n the line, a potential first year star in guard Tom Brown and fair strength at center. Beyond that the Gopher outlook is misted by such things as an absence of depth at most positions, positions, a heavy reliance on players who have yet to win their ribbons ribbons in loop competition and a Bead-banging schedule. Minnesota has been lumped with Indiana and Northwestern as the Big Ten's probable tail-end threesome threesome and it would be torturing the facts to push the Gophers much higher at this stage. The team has one psychological to lose this season in the way of prestige. A year ago its predecessor predecessor was praised to the skies in advance and wound up being run over five times and kicked into eighth place in the Big Ten. And there is always this — Minnesota's Minnesota's teams under coach Murray Murray Warmath twice have come up with winning seasons when least expected. The 1958 team has this on the plus side: Five lettermen •— Perry Gehring, Gehring, Ken Schultz, Bruce Hammond, Hammond, Tom Moe and Gerry Friend — at the ends. That's a third of the squads lettermen complement. A sturdy center in Capt. Mike Svenclsen and a good replacement for him in sophomore Greg Larson. Larson. advantage.

Line Is Husky A line averaging close to 210 pounds and populated by veterans at most first string spots. Norm Sixta, Mike Wright and Jerry Wallin are hefty people at tackle but did not hold the fort last year. Brown, Ev Gerths and Jerry Shetler Shetler are the top three guards at Minnesota although it is a question question whether they are up to the league standards collectively. Sophomores may make or ruin Minnesota's backfield this year. Jim Reese, letterman with only sporadic Big Ten experience, wil! start at quarterback in the early games. He is an acceptable passer and a slow runner with buckets of desire. There are six sophomores sophomores behind him, some of whom will have to go a long way this year.
