They have a "good, consistent
defense" according to coach Mac-
Innes and "can check with any-
body when they want to."
The Wolverines must be con-
sidered a threat. Dave Perrin,
Michigan's leading scorer with 17
goals and six assists in WCHA
play, Brian Slack, eight goals and
13 assists, and Barney Pashak, 11
and nine, lead the powerful blue
offense. All-American Jim Keough
guards the Michigan net. The icers S
are hot. They have won their last s
five contests handily, with a strong
attack and a stingy defense.
The secret to Wolverine success
is fore-checking and skating. Vet- G
eran forward Al Brook expressing -
the team's feeling said, "If we
skate, we can beat any team in the S1
country." The team is ready, and
they need to be.
Their Friday night opponent,
Minnesota, is competent. They
sport such standouts as the
league's second and sixth highest
scorers in Pete Fichuk and Bill
Klatt. They have 31 and 29 points
respectively. Also goalie Murray
McLachlan, with a 2.7 goals al-
lowed average, is a standout.

The WCHA has a new tourna-
ment format. The NCAA repre-
sentatives can be decided faster
now with fewer games. Maybe the
new procedure will lead to a new
champion. Michigan fans hope so.
Wolverine All-A merican Jim Keough
Everyone knew before the Big
Ten wrestling championships be-
gan in East Lansing last Friday
that it would be very difficult for
anyone to dislodge Michigan State
from the conference throne it has
occupied the last three years.
"Of course State will be heavily
favored," said Michigan coach
Cliff Keen before the two-day pro-
duction. "They've beaten all the
contenders in dual meets and they
don't have a weak spot in the

point bulge over second-place
The first bad omen for the
other conference representatives
came even before the first match
was wrestled, when the pairings
were made for each weight class.
Every State entry except one
was "seeded," which amounts to
saying that State did not have to
face any topflight competition un-
til the semi-finals.
In addition, the actual pairings
themselves "could not have been
better had we picked them our-
selves," according to one East
Lansing press box observer.
For example, State's Gary Bissell
at 123 avoided the bracket where
Minnesota's Frank Nichols, who
had beaten both Bissell and Mich-
igan's Tim Cech, was wrestling.
Iowa, the only team figured to
give the Spartans any trouble at
all, suffered its demise in thequar-
terfinals Friday afternoon. The
Hawkeyes, who like State had/
eight of their nine men seeded,
lost three of their stronger entries

Likewise, second-seeded Tom
Bentz at 123 and third-seeded
John Irvine at 145 were upset,

At this point, Michigan had a
clear-cut chance to overtake the
Hawkeyes for second place, as the
Wolverines also placed six men in
the Friday night round.
The first match that evening
shattered any such fantasies, as
top-seeded Tim Cech was upended
for the second straight week by
Minnesota's Frank Nichols. By
the end of the evening Michigan
had placed only Pete Cornell and
eventual champions Lou Hudson
and Jesse Rawls in the finals, and
Mike Rubin in the consolation
