Offense Red-Hot l'


[atmeni Look Ahead

An old face at a new position
-that's the Tom Schiller story.
Hockey coach Al Renfrew has
decided to switch Tom to offense
on a line with Ron Ullyot andf
Dean Lucier.
Schiller, a twenty-one year old
junior, has been playing almost
exclusively on defense so far this
season, but an excellent hockey
background suggests that he is
capable of making the shift in
Tom started playing hockey at
the age of nine in his hometown
of Riverside, Ontario, near Wind-
sor. His first organized hockey
competition came in the River-
side Minor Hockey Association
when he was twelve.
He moved up through its various
divisions for the next five years,
playing on the Assumption High

hockey team while in high school.
He played center up until his last
year when he was moved to de-
fense. All five years he was select-
ed to the Riverside All Star team.
Uncle's Advice
Tom's decision to attend Michi-
gan was greatly influenced by his

alternated positions; sometimes
playing on defense and also see-
ing action as a wing.
This season, most of his ice time
has been spent performing the
important function of penalty
killer. But Coach Renfrew decided
to switch him to right wing on
the Ullyot-Lucier line because, "he
has definitely earned a chance to
play regularly. Tom has worked
hard and has shown a lot of hustle
and desire, therefore he merits this

line." Helpful Hint

Skate and Shootf
Renfrew continued, "He has
demonstrated excellent skating
and shooting ability in his recent
play. Also, his attitude is better
than before. He doesn't get down
on himself as much when he
makes mistakes this year."
Although he enjoys playing de-
fense, Tom is very happy for the
chance to move to offensive wing.
"It's great to play with two guys
like Ron and Dean who really
know their hockey. It might be
hard at first for me to make the
change, but I'm confident that we
can work well together."
He cites "constructive criticism"
as an important part of the re-
lationship between players. "There
is a definite advantage in having
teammates who are serious about

far was the second Colorado
match when the penalty-killing
team came through with two goals
of its own.
He is looking forward to this
weekend's home series with Min-
nesota, as is the whole team.
Coach Renfrew's idea of "fire-up
men"-several players who are
appointed to instill spirit into the
team-is lifting the team after
last weekend's disastrous MSU
Welcome Mats
During yesterday's practice ses-
sion, all the players sported hel-
mets with the message such as
"Kill Minnesota" or "Hustle pays
off" taped on the back. This idea
originated with one of the week's
fire-up men, Barry MacDonald.
Tom's message read "Live up to
your uncle-Hustle." That's ex-
actly what he intends to do as he
attempts to become a member of
one of the regular three offensive

Now approaching the toughest
part of the schedule, Michigan's
wrestlers regard last weekend's
victorious meets as past history-
history that's nice to remember
but not sufficient enough to rest
their laurels upon.
The Wolverines thoroughly and
systematically demolished Illinois'
mat squad in Yost Field House on
Friday afternoon, 30-0, and then
proceeded to humble Pittsburgh's
Panthers 28-3 at the same site on
But Coach Cliff Keen does not
want to overemphasize the impor-
tance of the two drubbings, "We
should see the squad against
tougher opposition to be able to
truly judge its talent," he warned.
"We performed well last weekend,
and I feel we're making good pro-
gress, considering the inexperience
we had at many positions going
into this season."
Illinois and Pittsburgh, however,
would probably consider Keen
overly modest. To their foes, Mich-
igan must have resembled a com-
posite of Dick the Bruiser, Lou
Thesz and Wilbur Snyder-all on
their better days. Michigan had

such a good day against Illinois

"It's a good place to be if you
enjoy watching people. You're
there, almost part of things, but
still detached, not actually being
a member of the team."
So speaks John Phillips, mana-
ger of Michigan's league-leading
cage quintet, speaking of what he
feels to be the primary benefit
of his job. "I observe," he goes
on, "'trying my best not be noticed.
It's not that I'm violating any
rules of secrecy, it's just that I
know I'm doing my best when no
one is even aware that I'm
"John is a hard-working, dedi-
cated manager, a model of the
efficiency necessary for a team
manager," enthuses Coach Dave
Strack, Phillips' boss for the past
three years. "I'd most like to say
that he has done an excellent
The Job
Of course, such high-minded,
modest self appraisal, and such
determined praise are all fine and
good. But what is it that a mana-
ger does that John Phillips does
so well? To be sure, what is it
that a manager does at all?
We all remember those days in
high school when a friend (if not
oneself) accepted the post of
athletic manager for one of the
teams. "Well," he (or we) would
say, "I really likesports and the
bench is' the best seat in the
house," or "The team is a great
bunch of guys, and I really like to

work with them." Surely, the
speaker would have been more
truthful had he said, "Well, I
didn't make the team and I still
wanted the letter sweater."
In either case, respect for the
job was rare; and not many
coveted it. But the job changes
when you go big time.
... And Water Boy
"Most precisely, John is the
team's equipment manager, chief
statistician, bill-payer, itinerary-
straightener, and road manager,"
states Strack. And if this "precise-
ness" is still too sketchy, John
definitively adds "water boy" to
the list of his many duties.
Sitting beneath a panorama of
33 different hotel keys from
hostelries all over the nation,
collected on the innumerable road
trips he has made all over the
country with the team, John elab-
orates a bit more specifically on
his duties. "At home games, I
score for the freshman matches,
make sure the players are on
time, take care of the equipment,
p r o v i d e thirst-quenching and
sweat-drying 'services during the
game, handle the players' tickets,
and I watch."
On the road? "I secure reserva-
tions, get airplane tickets, charter
buses, pay food and hotel bills,
arrange practices, steal hotel keys,
and I watch."
Still Watching
All this and practices, too, at
which he repeats the applicable
duties, and watches some more. ;
Chief Manager Phillips calls
himself "an irrespressible basket-
ball fan, and I never tire of watch-
ing the guys play. In four years
I've seen practically every All-
American in the country, and I've
loved every minute."
He adds, "I am also continually
interested in the personality un-
dercurrents and intrigues in which
the team has been involved." And
while he refuses to elaborate "for
obvious reasons," John indicates
that he more than relishes his
inside view of the personal byplay
that occurs on the team.
In fact, the change in this al-
most common team-and-coach
splitting disease is why John feels,
despite their record to date that
this year's Wolverines are the best
he's seen in his four-year stint
on the bench (a stay that goes

Tensions Ease
"Last year, tensions were ter-
rible, not only between the coaches
and the players, but among the
players themselves. Then, on last
summer's State Department tour
of Europe and the Near East,
something happened. The tensions
were nil, and both the coaches
and the players loosened up. Fin-
ally, after two years for the sen-
iors, the coaches and the players
became friends." This, says John,
caused the cohesiveness for a good
basketball team.
Phillips is also careful to note
that friendly coach-player rela-
tions are better for him, too.
"When tensions are bad, the
coaches get ornery, and don't

one of friends or colleagues."

M' Thinclads Make Strong Showing


An atmosphere of quiet opti-
mism fills old Yost Field House as
the Wolverine cindermen prepare
for their third meet of the 1966
indoor season.
Michigan confronted Michigan
State for the first time on Satur-
day, and although the Spartan:
hurdlers were overpowering as ex-
pected, the Wolverines came out
with impressive showings on the
remainder of the program.
"They're powerful," Michigan
track coach Don Canham said
yesterday, speaking of the MSU
thinclads. "They've got guys all
over the place.
"But we are doing all right.
We've done it before and we'll do
it again,"he added. To merely
say that the Wolverines had done
it before was an understatement,
as Canham's squads in the last
decade have amassed a remarkable
record, garnering seven Big Ten

For the second consecutive meet,
Michigan sophomore Rick Hunt
leaped 6'6". Hunt took the high
jump, defeating Ted Downing of
Miami who cleared the same
height but had more misses.
The Wolverine two mile relay
