Coach Hahn has his Red Raiders in good physical shape. . none of the gridders having any more than the usual minor achei and ailments that go- along with .- getting ready for the top opponent on the card. The Sentinels, according to Hahn; had a good scrimmage Tuesday, but had to go light yesterday because of the wet ground and slippery conditions. He had figured on'a-hard drill today, but wasn't sure because of the change in-temperature. The Hilltoppere will also use the first..three .days .of next wefck to polish up, Wednesday being just a routine last minute for offensive and defensive -alignments. . Because'of the limited time, lor practice, the Sentinel skipper feels that his ehaiges haven't advanced as far along as he would like-them to be at this stage; They didn't get a chance to do anything last Thursday and Friday due to that "white stuff" which blanketed the city. It then left just as fast Friday when the sun melted it and the drill field looked like a sea of mud. However, if the weather remains good, .another five days of polishing up "for both the Campers and Sentinels will have them at peak shape - for x the Stadium battle.

A couple of weeks ago this paragraph was printed in my weekly forecast, and I. quote: > "Not too maqy upsets this week, folks! The big one is Illinois to defeat Michigan.

But that's not the case. , ,.. "Hop, I'm glad to report, will;be in his best physical condition of the season for the Michigan game," coach Woody Hayes grinned as his chest bulged, slightly.

It will take 60 minutes of rock- 'em sock'em football to decide the issue Saturday, but despite the final outcome, Hayes wQl always be justly proud of the 21-year-old Columbus-born lad who brought Ail-American honors to Ohio'State last season when the Bucks 'posted a Rose Bowl victory after winning the.
