WOLVERINE NOTES Washington’s triple-option offense gave Michigan a few problems as the 230 yards the Huskies gained on the ground would indicate. When Michigan defensed for the triple option, Washington used straight power with fullback Bo Cornell busting up the middle for big gains. Michigan linebackers keyed on the halfbacks and when both halfbacks started in the opposite direction, the middle opened up. Although Michigan’s middle guard, Henry Hill, limped off the field with an apparent leg injury, Michigan trainers said Hill apparently is not seriously hurt and will be ready for Saturday’s encounter with Missouri. Three former Michigan football greats, members of the 22-man All-Time All-America teams selected by the Football Writers Association of America in connection with the 100th anniversary of the game, were honored at the half. They were Bennie Oosterbaan, three-time All-America end (1925-27), Willie Heston, a back on Fielding H. Yost’s “Point-A-Minute” teams (1901-04) and Adolph “Germany” Schulz, a center who played in 1905-05 and 1907-08. Heston and Schulz are deceased and their plaques were accepted by Jack Heston, Willie Heston’s son, and Bump Elliott, Michigan associate athletic director.
