SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1983 THE MICHIGAN DAILY

Blue Squad Shows Improvement,

Triumphs,

48-0

13y MIKE BLOCK 4
Associate Sports Editor
In a sharp reversal of form
from last week's game-type scrim-
mafie, Michigan's Blue squad col-
lected a few breaks yesterday and
rolled to an 48-0 romp over the
Whites.
About 250 people scattered about
warm, sunny Michigan Stadium
watched the Blues improve con-
siderably over their meager 32-30
win of last Saturday. Quarterback
Frosty Evashevski and halfback

C*

Bob Quist each scored two of the
Blues' seven touchdowns, with
halfback Dick Wells, fullback
Wayne Sparkman and guard Joe
O'Donnell (surprise!) adding the
others.
White team place-kicker Rick
Bay filled in for injured Blue toe-
mai Bob Timberlake and missed
only one of seven tries for point
after touchdown.
Many Breaks
The entire game was character-
ized by the Blues receiving several

good breaks, and converting them
to touchdowns shortly. They had
only one long drive towards a TD,
but frequent interceptions kept
them close to the Whites' goal line
most of the time.
On the other hand, the Whites
received very little charity from
the first- and second-stringers,
and the only long drive they could
manage couldn't get them any
closer to paydirt than the Blues'
15-yard line.
The Blues were successful de-

spite the loss of several key per-
sonnel, especially backs. Three. of
the Wolverines' top fullbacks, Mel
Anthony, Dennis Jones and Barry
Dehlin, sat the game out with var-
ious ailments, as did quarterback
Bob Timberlake, halfback Dick
Rindfuss, guard John Houtman
and tackle Bill Yearby.
Sick List
Anthony and Dehlin were nurs-
ing sore ankles, Timberlake and
Yearby had pulled shoulder mus-
cles, Jones and Houtman had
slight cases of the flu and Rind-
fuss was out with a nose fracture.
None of these disabilities were of
a serious nature, and the seven
men involved were expected by
head coach Bump Elliott to re-
turn to practice this week.
Despite the fullback shortage,
some of the best performances of
the day came out of that position.
Sparkman started at full for the
Blues and was helped out there
by Gary Schick, who switched
from his White uniform for the
afternoon. Both players picked up
plenty of yardage through the
center of the White line.
Allison Helps Whites
Bruce Allison did most of the
fullbacking for the Whites, and
was their most consistent ground
gainer.
Evashevski got the Blues off to
a good start and scored the first
two tallies himself. The Blues re-
ceived the opening kickoff, but
were soon forced to punt, and on
the Whites' third play from scrim-
mage, Bay, playing quarterback,
fumbled to John Rowser, the
Blues' left halfback, on the 22.
Four plays later Evashevski went
,over from the two on an option
play.
Towards the end of the first
quarter, the White team got of f
their longesthsustained drive.
Quarterback Pete Hollis' passing
and the running of Allison spark-
ed the drive, but the charge was
halted when Blue defensive back
Jim Schar picked of f a Hollis
aerial on the 15-yard line and ran
it back to the 50.;
Four Horsemen
From that point the ball-carry-
ing of Sparkman and Evashevski,
plus that of starting halfbacks
Wells and Jack Clancy scored the
Blues' second TD. With a first
down on the nine, Clancy streaked
around right end to the one, and
Evashevski sneaked over for the
six-pointer.
The next time they got their
hands on the ball, the Blues sent
in quarterback Bob Chandler,
who has been hampered by a
sprained ankle. In this series of
downs, Chandler didn't seem to be
bothered by the injury, and di-
rected the squad to the White 1,
largely on the pass-catching abil-
ity of end John Henderson. How-
ever, the drive ended there on
Bay's missed field goal.
The Blues scored on the last
play of the half on a march set up
by Schic'"s interception of a Bay
pass on the White 31. Quarterback
Tom Prichard eventually pitched
a TD fling to Quist from the 20.
Another Interception
White took the second half kick-
off, but didn't have the ball long,
as Sparkman intercepted another
toss by Hollis on the 50, and ran
down the sidelines to the nine,
where Dick Ott finally caught up
with him. Two plays later, Eva-
shevski passed to Wells for the
score.
The Blues' last three touch-
downs were scored in the final
period. The first was scored after

a drive from their own 23, and
culminated on a lateral fromI
Chandler to Quist from thef
Whites' five-yard line.
The second came about when
the Blues found themselves on the I
White 40 with a fourth down and
17 to go. O'Donnell was sent back,
to punt, but instead ran rightE
through everyone and across the
goal line. Commenting on the
play, Elliott said, "That was
something the boys cooked up in
the huddle, I won't take any creditj
for it."1
Powerful Punts
Incidentally, when O'Donnell
did punt, he got off three boots of
better than 55 yards.
The game's last score was tal-
lied by Sparkman from the one-
yard line after a drive in which
he did most of the running. Prich-
ard gave Evashevski and Chandler
somerest in pointing his squad
towards this tally.
No serious injuries were sus-
tained during the scrimmage.:
Starting Blue team tackle John
Yanz received a head injury early
Millsaps?
Pick 'em in
Grid'Piecks
First it was Toogaloo and Phi-
lander Smith.
But last year, Millsaps and
Ouchita Baptists took over the
spotlight as the top game of the
fall in The Daily's. weekly Grid
Picks contest.
And it's the same old story again
this fall. As Daily readers try
their skill at picking the winners
in eacl week's list of 20 games,
everyone will be thinking ahead to
the battle to the death later in the
seasoi between the Cheetahs of
Arkadelphia, Ark., and the Sap-
pies of Jackson, Miss.
Last year the Cheetahs turnedi
in the biggest upset of the season
with a 20-7 shocker over the Sap-.
pies in a game which thrilled the
fans of Jackson. This year it's
anybody's guess again.
Even if you haven't made up
your mind yet about the winner of
the really big one, you might want
to try your lck, anyway. The
contestant with the top winning
percentage each week walks away
with two free tickets to the Mich-
igan Theater.
if you can pick the winners of
all twenty games correctly the
sports editor of The Daily, Dave
Good, will sign you up as chief of
football prognostication, a post
coveted by all soothsayers and for-1
tune tellers.
Start thinking now about what
system you're going to use this
fall to try to beat the experts. The
first contest starts next week for
the games of Sept. 21.
Record Set
DEKALB, Ill. (A-Passing wiz-
ard George Bork set a NCAA col-
lege division, record yesterday by
throwing seven touchdown passes
in leading Northern Illinois to a
55-7 football victory over White-
water.
Borg, who now holds nine Indi-
vidual' NCAA game and career
passing records, hit end Hugh
Rohrschneider with four of the
scoring passes.

in the second half, and had to miss
the remainder of the game, but
team physician Dr. A. W. Coxon
said the injury was only super-
ficial and would not cause Yanz
to miss any practice.
Schick also left the game for a
while with a bloody nose, but re-
entered the action with no appar-
ent ill effects.
Starting to Improve
After the game was over, a
pleased Elliott summed up his
team's performance by saying, "I
think we're starting to improve
now. One of the things we're
happiest about is that the team
spirit has maintained itself. If
the spirit keeps going the way it
has, we should be in top form for
our first game."
Elliott added that the upcom-
ing week of practice (the fourth
week) was crucial. "If we can
keep the morale up during this
week, we should be okay," he
asserted.
Scharl Surprises
One of the defensive surprises
of the game was Scharl, who was
elevated from the fourth string to
give a good account of himself
in the Blues' defensive backfield.
Elliott indicated that Scharl has
shown considerable improvement
as a cornerman.
The Michigan mentor also term-
ed the quarterback situation "un-
certain." Timberlake and Chan-
dler were slated to be the two top
signal-callers, but with them see-
ing limited action, Evashevski and
Hollis have filled in and have
done good, if not exceptional jobs
of directing the team.

TENNIS:

Richardson Tops Osuna

.. ,...

FORT WORTH, Tex. (R) -
Ham Richardson upset U.S. singles
champion Rafael Osuna yester-
day and gained the finals of the
Colonial National Invitation Ten-
nis tournament against Chuck Mc-
Kinley.
Richardson, at ,31 only semi-,
active on the tennis circuit, battled
to a 2-6, 6-,10-8 victory over the
MexicanDavis Cup star.
Osuna, the No. 2 seed behind
McKinley, held match point six
times in the final set and six
times Richardson rallied brilliant-
ly.
McKinley crushed fourth-seeded
Antonio Palafox of Mexico, 6-2,
6-3.
The: 22-year-old Wimbledon
champion, who spent the morning

in a whirlpool bath to sooth an
aching back, broke the Mexican
Davis Cupper's service in the sec-
ond game of the first set and
coasted on in to the final berth.
A near-capacity crowd of 1,500
gave the third-seeded Richardson
and Osuna a standing ovation af-
ter the tall Dallas belter clinched
the match with a smooth back-
hand into the corner beyond Osu-
na's reach.
\Osuna, pin-pointing his volleys
deftly, swept through the first set
with ease and then Richardson,
finding the range with his sibbling
service, took the second set in
somewhat of a breeze.
It set the stage for a dramatic
finale that kept the fans cheering

lustily and the umpire calling
time and again for silence.
The two swapped service breaks
in the fifth and sixth games and
Osuna carried a 5-4 edge into the
10th gam6.
Richardson double-faulted three
times in the crucial game, twice
moving Osuna to match point. Six
straight times, Osuna gained the
advantage and with each Richard-
son rally the pressure mounted.
Finally, Richardson broke
through Osuna's service in the
17th game with a couple of great
passing shots..
Arthur Ashe Jr., of Richmond,
Va., was picked Saturday night
to replace Riessen intoday's final
singles match. He thus becomes
the first U.S. Negro ever selected
to play in a Davis Cup match.
The U.S. team captain, Bob
Kelleher, said Ashe will oppose
Bracamonte in a match starting
at noon. Ralston will play Pi-
mentel.

ST. LOUIS (P)-The Los An-
geles Dodgers clung to. their slen-
der 2%-game lead over the press-
ing St. Louis Cardinals yester-
day as both teams scored victories
in the tense National League pen-
nant race.'
The Dodgers turned back the
Phillies' 5-1 at Philadelphia, with
five-hit pitching by Pete Richert
and home runs by Ken McMullen
and Tommy Davis. The Cardinals
won their 17th game in their last
18 starts with a 3-2 triumph over
the Milwaukee Braves but had to
snuff out a ninth-inning Braves'
rally to do it.
The Dodgers and Cardinals.
meet head-on in a three-game se-
ries at St. Louis, starting tomor-
row.
The hero in the St. Louis vic-
tory was Ron Taylor, one of the
Cards' lesser lights who has spent
most of the season in the bullpen.
The 26-year-old .Canadian, an
honor graduate from the Universi-
ty of Toronto, took over from start-
er Bob Gibson in the ninth inning
with Braves on third and first
and nobody out. He came through,
retiring three batters without per-
mitting either of the runners to
advance.
"It gave me the biggest thrill
I've ever had in baseball," the
perspiring Taylor said as he re-
ceived congratulations from his
teammates.
"I knew I couldn't afford to let

any of those guys hit the ball out
of the infield; so I concentrated on
keeping the ball low and away.
He got Dennis Menke to pop up,
struck out Ty Cline and then got
Frank Bolling on a force out.
"We'll win this thing," said Lew
Burdette, the veteran right-hand-
er who will pitch one of the games
in today's doubleheader against
his former teammates. Left-hander
Ray Sadecki will pitch the other.
They will be opposed by southpaw
Bob Hendley and Denny Lemas-
ter.
"After tomorrow we'll be one
behind," Burdette said confident-
ly. "Then we'll.have those Dodgers
in our back yard. That's what
we've been waiting for."
The only signs of nervousness
among the players was shown by
Curt Simmons, who pitched a mas-
terful five-hit shutout over the

Braves Friday night - his I
straight shutout.
"These games are making
old," said the 34-year-old
hander. "I don't know if my h
can take it."
The Cardinals have been en
ed in 17 one-run decisions in
last month, and they've won 15
"We just can't win those i
ones," quipped Burdette.
Manager Johnny Keane hid
anxiety behind a cigar whicl
puffed at confidently.
"This. was the toughest
we've been in in a long time,
said. "I mean this late in a g
But the boys battled it througi
Keane singled out Taylor
special praise.
"Ron didn't surprise me witl
fine relief' job," he said. "He's
in a number of spots just like
one and he's pitched out .of a
them."
