f Coach Bo Schembechler is worried
t his Wolverines might suffer from a
of motivation going into this
k's game with Duke, he has good
son.
fter last week's impressive and
matic win over Notre Dame, the
chigan squad would be expected to
e a hard time getting pumped up for
ir game against lowly Duke.
he problem is that the Blue Devils
not a lowly ball club, but in fact, a
y respectable one, capable of upset-
the toughest of foes.
uke comes into Ann Arbor with a 2-0
ord following home victories over
orgia Tech (28-10) and South
olina (16-12). There is nothing the
e Devils want more than to leave
higan Stadium with a clean slate.
ut according to Duke head coach

LE TDOWN FEARED AFTER NOTRE DAME
demand Wolverine

Mike McGee, "I'm satisfied with the
fact that we're 2-0, but we have a long
way to go before we become a good
team. We have too much inexperien-
ce."
Leading the Blue Devil attack will be
senior Mike Dunn who is within reach of
all the Athletic Coast Conference (ACC)
total offensive marks and could become
one of the top ten total offensive leaders
in college football history.
Last year the 6-4, 184 quarterback
rolled up 1815 total yards, 1239 through
the air (53.4 completion percentage)
and 576 on the ground. He also had a
streak of 105 pass attempts without an
interception.
Dunn, superb with the triple option,
set a school record of 344 yards total of-
fense last year against North Carolina
State and once rushed for 168 yards
against Georgia. But Dunn is not the

only Blue Devil capable of tossing the
pigskin consistently.
"Junior Stanley Driskell (voted most
improved offensive back) and
sophomore Craig Browning (who led
the JV squad to an undefeated season
last year) improved greatly during the
spring and will push Mike for the star-
ting position," added McGee.
Driskell was quarterback in Duke's
first game against Georgia Tech (Dunn
was out that game with a jammed
thumb but played the second game and
will be ready for Michigan). In that
game Driskell was six for 15 in the air
for 153 yards and also ran for a 46-yard
touchdown.
Rounding out the back field for the
Blue Devils are Greg Rhett and Ned
Gonet. In the opening game, Rhett
rushed for 154 yards.
Clearing the way for the backfield

will be 6-1, 245 tackle Tom Luongo who
worked out during the summer to prove
his strength by pushing cars across
parking lots. Luongo bench presses 365.
and military presses 250 pounds.
Luongo, a senior, and junior Kevin
Kelly are the only offensive linemen
returning for the Duke squad. "The of-
fensive line is an area of concern,"
stated McGee.
The Blue Devils are in better shape
on defense. Nine of the 15 starters
return on the defensive side, headed
by standout linebackers Carl McGee
and Bill King.
McGee, playing with a hamstring pull
the entire season, led Duke in tackles
last year and should end up the all-time
leading tackler in Duke history. King
was twice named defensive player of
the week in the ACC last year.
"Speed in the offensive and defensive

respect
backfields is lacking beyond the first
unit, but this could be helped con-
siderably by an outstanding freshman
class," said Coach McGee.
The Blue Devils have no serious in-
juries going into the Michigan game
besides the usual "bumps and bruises".
McGee saw conditioning as the key to
the first two wins, particularly evident
in the fourth quarters.
Most of the kicking will be handled by
sophomore Ricky Brummit who has
been averaging around 41.0 yards per
punt.

OYALS, RED SOX ONLY OBSTACLES:
Yanks aim for third straight flag

By DAVE JOHNSON
n April, every American League
m looks optimistically toward a
inner year. Each organization feels it
s acquired the personnel, either
rough free agency or the farm
stem, to thwart the New York
nkees' dream of back-to-back world
ampionships.
However, with a handful of games
maining, only Boston and Kansas
ty stand between the Yankees and
eir third consecutive American
ague flag.
ANSAS CITY, three-time cham-
ns of the West, await the results of
Eastern Division pennant race.
w York holds a one game edge over
ston. Any combination of five
nkee wins and/or Red Sox defeats
11 give the World Champions the
stern Divison title. A tie would result
a single playoff game at Fenway
rk on Monday, October 2.
Regardless of who their opponent will

be, the Royals are hungrier than ever to
win the playoffs. For two straight
years, they have been beaten by the
Yankees in the final inning of the final
playoff game. Those were devastating
setbacks and now the Royals are
determined to prove they can end their
playoff jinx.
Pitching is a key to success and for-
tunately for Kansas City they have a
solid staff. Starters Larry Gura (14-4),
Paul Splittorff (19-12), and rookie Rich
Gale (14-8) have all been cogsistent.
Dennis Leonard (18-17), once the ace of
the staff, has pitched well the last two
months, winning 10 of his last 15
decisions.
If any of the starters begin to falter,
the Royals can count on Al Hrabosky
for immediate aid. The "Mad
Hungarian" boasts an impressive 2.87
E.R.A. and 19 saves.
FOR THE MOST part, K.C. is
physically sound; although All-Star
third baseman George Brett is playing

with a cracked thumb requiring post-
season surgery. "I know my hand is
gonna hurt," said Brett, "so I'm just
gonna. go up to the plate and swing
hard. It hurts just as much when I don't
swing hard."
Offensively, the Royals will rely on
the hot bat of Amos Otis. The veteran
centerfielder leads the team with 20
homers, 87 RBI, and a .297 batting
average. He also has 28 stolen bases on
a team that specializes in stealing.
Kansas City leads the league with 184
swipes. They aren't a big inning club,
being second to last in home runs with
87. But as Boston manager Don Zimmr
says, "They will Punch-and-Judy you to
death."
Zimmer should know about death.
Two months ago, his Red Sox were
tearing up the league. They held a 10-
.game lead over second place
Milwaukee and were 14 ahead of fourth
place New York. Boston raved about
having the best offense and defense in

either league. Boston fans were talking
playoffs . . . World Series . . . World
Championship.
AND THEN CAME the resurgence of
the New York Yankees. Brash Billy
resigned and Bob Lemon took the reins.
For the following two months the Red
Sox and Yankees went in opposite
directions. And like cream, the World
Champions rose to the top.
Of course, neither team is out of the
woods yet. With four games yet to be
played by both teams, any error will be
magnified that much more.
The Red Sox have turned things
around recently, winning six of their
last eight games. Jim Rice leads the
league in homers with 44, RBI with 135
and is third in average at .3 15.
Dennis Eckersley (19-8) leads a staff
including Luis Tiant (11-8), Mike
Torrez (15-12), and Jim Wright (8-4).
Bob Stanley has been effective out of
the bullpen throughout the year,
picking up 10 saves while posting a 14-2
record and a 2.69 ERA.
UNFORTUNATELY FOR Boston,
serious injuries to Butch Hobson
(elbow), Carl Yastzremski (wrist),
Carlton Fisk (ribs), Dwight Evans
(dizziness), and Jerry Remy (wrist),
late in the year continue to keep them
from playing at full strength.
On the other hand, healthy players
have enabled New York to power them-
selves back into the pennant race. Mun-
son, Randolph, Rivers and Dent were
simultaneously side-lined early in the
season. The situation forced then-
manager Billy Martin to play the likes
of Brian Doyle and Damasco Garcia.
Happily for Bob Lemon the Yankees
have been able to play the guys who
won last year's World Series. Lemon
also has boosted many of the players
egos, as in the case of Reggie Jackson.
Since returning to his familiar right-
fieldspot after a stint as DH, the 1977
World Series M.V.P. has batted .317, af-
ter being .247 at mid-season.
Of course Reggie isn't the only player
to find late-season happiness. Aside
from Chambliss and Dent, every star-
ter has averaged over .300. The pitching
staff of Ron Guidry (10-2), Catfish Hun-
ter (10-2), Ed Figueroa (12-3), and Rich
Gossage (5-1) with 13 saves, has been
super under Lemon, a former major-
league pitcher himself.
