By BOB LEES
A fast start and a fast finish.
Those were the prime ingred-
ients for last year's undefeated
wrestling team, as the Wolver-
ines' Mutt and Jeff combination
of Dave Porter at heavyweight
and Bob Fehrs at 123-pounds went
undefeated and untied through-j
out the entire dual meet season.
Now Jeff is gone.
But Mutt isn't. Not only that-
the talented heavyweight is cap-
tain this year of a "squad which
has the horses to go a long way,"
according to assistant grappling
coach Rick Bay.

pounds, was unstoppable last year'

Bob Noel, a letterwinner last year.
and Bob Seeger, another soph,
will also fight it out in the lower
weights.
Yet another first-year man. Lou
Hudson. seems pretty set right
nowat 130 pounds, but the rest
of the sophomores will be under-
dogs at their positions. Frank
Lusido is Henson's chief competi-
tor at 137, while middle-weighters
include Jim Sanger, Lane Head-
rick, John Hellner, and junior Al
Keirn. Dave Eldridge and Carroll
Detrick will challenge at 167.
Then there's Bevan Alvey, who
will fill the 191 position at the
Midlands. Unfortunately for the
big soph, this weight too is not
contested in dual meets, and ac-
cording to Bay he's "too big for
177 and not big enough for heavy-
weight." But fortunately for the
Wolverines, he'll fill a vital cate-
cory come NCAA time.
Exactly who plays where is not
definiteas yet. "We've just begun
our challenges and try-outs for
starting berths," explains Bay.
"Our main problem right now is
lack of time, since this is the last
week of regular practice until Jan-
udry. We hope to have a set line-
up at the Midlands, but as of now
we're allowed to carry as many
squad members as we want, so
long as we designate which ones

will count in the tourney stand-
"The tournament itself," Bay
continues, "should be a really
potent affair. The top six teams
in last year's NCAA's will be rep-
rcsrnted, as well as a lot of Pan-
American and Olympic champs."
Yet for most Wolverine fans, the
Midlands are only a prelude to the
regular season, and as Keen says,
"We have our most attractive 10
home schedule ever." The top at-
traction will probably be Okla-
homa, to w1aom pre-season raters
are already ascribing the number
one position in the nation. The
Michigan mentors won't dispute
with that-at least publicly-but
Keen does have one prediction:
"Basketball won't be the only
sport to draw crowds at the Events
Building."

Two other returnees who had1
fine showings last year are juniors,
Geoff Henson and Pete Cornell.j
"Both of the mto be considered
pretty solid right now," says Bay,
and their records tell the reason
why. Henson won 13 matches last
year and fourth in- the Big Ten
at 137-pounds, while Cornell
wrestled in dual meets at 177,
took second in the Big Ten, then
dropped down to 167 to grab third
in the nations. ("He's a growing
boy," says Bay; "he'll never make
it down to 167 this year.") Also
junior letterman Wayne Wentz,
who was injured last year, will
have another year of eligibility
4at 177.'
Except for Henson, who will be
in a tournament at Wilkes-Barre,
Pa., and Porter, who was selected
to play in the North-South foot-

ball game on Christmas day, the
grapplers mentioned will get their
best chances to prove themselves
at the Midlands Open, held this
year in LaGrange, Illinois, Dec.
29 and 30. But the coaches will
spend most of their time looking
at the fine sophomore crop.
"We may have lost a lot of
good ones through graduation,"
declares Cliff Keen, head coach
of the Wolverine squad, "but
there's an awful lot of talent in
the new bunch."
Leading off for the rookies at
the Midlands will be 115-pounder
Ron Scherer, who grabbed the
123-pound class in last year's
freshman tournament, held here
with five other area frosh squads.
