Undefeated Badgers to test Blue

The Michigan Daily-Saturday, October 21, 1978-Page 7




Having squelched 'the persistent
rumor that they possessed a Heisman
trophy candidate at quarterback,
Michigan's Wolverines return to the
grueling business of winning Big Ten
games today before a sellout crowd of
over 79,000 at Wisconsin's Camp Ran-
dall Stadium.
As they have the past two years,
Michigan fdces a must-win situation in
every conference game to insure them-
selves a shot at another Rose Bowl bid.
But something has definitely
changed. No longer are the Wolverines
on the brink because of an undefeated
giant looming in Columbus. The threats
are coming from every direction this
year -from East Lansing, from West
Lafayette, and even from Madison.
Wisconsin is undefeated, but a 20-20
tie last week against Illinois stumped
the Badgers chances of moving into fir-
st place. They now rest a half game
behind Purdue, but things may be con-
siderably gloomier in four weeks after
games against the Wolverines,
Michigan State, Ohio State, and the

Last year the Badgers were 5-0 and
ranked 14th before coming to Ann Ar-
bor, where they were beaten so badly
(56-0), that they didn't win a game the
rest of the year.
Coach Dave McClain was busy
guiding BaliState to a 9-2 record and an
MAC crown, but he still paid enough at-
tention to adopt an almost reverent at-
titude towards Michigan.
"They're an awesome football
team," said McClain. "They have so
much speed and so much talent. They
are just a better team than we are."
Maybe McClain didn't see last week's
game, when Michigan spent a long af-
ternoon displaying their weaknesses to
upcoming foes.
"Oh, I saw it," McClain said. "But I
really would rather have seen Michigan
win. It would have made it easier for us
to prepare for them."
But McClain says his team will have
no problems psyching for Michigan af-
ter last year's humiliation. Still, he's
counting on some Wolverine errors to
turn the tide early.

"If we play a great football game and
they play a very good one, our chances
are still quite slim. They have to make,
mistakes like they did last week."
The mistakes McClain specifically
referred to are the three interceptions
Rick Leach threw in the first half of the
State game. It continued a passing
slump which has plagued Leach all
year. He's completed only 39 percent of
his passes.
But Badger quarterback Mike
Kalasmiki hasn't done much better,
having hit 30 passes in 76 tries. Wiscon-
sin has a freshman sensation named
John Josten who is pressing Kalasmiki
and may see some time.
The Badgers biggest problem is their
size. Rarely does Michigan carry a
weight advantage on both lines, but that
will be the case today.
"We have an offensive guard who's
only 5-10 and 210," said McClain.
"That's a tremendous advantage for
Michigan. But we'll just have to stand
in there and whip some people."
McClain's pessimism is one of the
lessons he learned from his first
teacher, Bo Schembechler. Schem-

bechler is predictable as ever, but after
last week it seems like more than con-
ference lip service. -
"Wisconsin's a fine team," Schem-
bechler said in earnest. "But we are not
going to over-prepare for the pass, like
we did before last week."
Last week, the Wolverines tried to
open up early on offense, and were bur-
ned. Whenever they returned to their
traditional option offense, the ball
moved up and down the field. This
week, they'll probably use the power
early, reserving the fancy stuff for
"We're ready to run at the," Bo said.
"But that doesn't mean we'll run over
hasn't beaten Michigan since 1962, and
the series stands in Michigan's favor by
a 29-7 count.. . . The Badgers tailback,
Ira Matthews, is fifth in the country in
punt returns, averaging 17.1 yards...
Offensive tackle John Powers, who
missed last week's game, is also expec-
ted to be on the sidelines today. That
brings the number of starters who are
out of action to three. Bill Dufek and
Gene Johnson are the others.

11inois to battle upstart Purdue

Who would have thought that at any
point in the 1978 football season Purdue
would be sitting all alone at the top of
the Big Ten? That's exactly where the
Bpilermakers are after they upset Ohio
State last Saturday. They also received
a little help from Michigan State, who
knocked off Michigan.
This Saturday they will be further
tested on a regional ABC football game
at Illinois. Other Big Ten match-ups,
besides the Michigan-Wisconsin game,
include Indiana at Michigan State,
Iowa at Ohio State, and Minnesota at
PURDUE (2-0 in the Big Ten) has lost
six of its last eight games to the Illini,
and hopes to turn it around behind the
strong passing arm of sophomore Mark
Herrmann. Herrmann completed 22 of
34 passes for 210 yards in last week's 27-
16 win over Ohio State, which propelled
the Boilermakers to 19th in the country
in both polls. Purdue also has a strong
running game, with fullback John
Macon leading the Big Ten in rushing
and tailback Russell Pope ranking four-
Illinois (0-1-2) is coming off a 20-20 tie
with explosive Wisconsin. The Illini
defense will need to come up with a top-
notch performance, which it hasn't
proved capable of doing, if they hope to
upset Purdue.
Indiana (14) travels to East Lansing
top meet the Spartans from Michigan
State (1-1).The Hoosier defense, ranked
ninth in the Big Ten, will have its hands
full trying to stop a powerful MSU at-
tack, featuring the conference's leading
passer, Ed Smith.
LAST WEEK SMITH befuddled the

uphill comeback climb at home against
Iowa (1-1). Freshman quarterback Art
Schlichter of the Bucks leads the Big
Ten in total offense, but has thrown 13
interceptions already.
Iowa quarterback 'Jeff Green will
have a chance to improve his own
woeful statistics against an Ohio State
pass defense that ranks dead last in the
conference, giving up an average of
224.4 yards per game. Iowa will be
trying to bounce back from a tough 22-
20 loss to Minnesota.
MINNESOTA IS playing North-
western in the final Big Ten contest.
The Gophers' (1-1) offense is led by
quarterback Mark Carlson, who was 14-,
19 for 175 yards and two touchdowns
last week. He can also hand the ball off
to tailback Marion Barber, who rushed

for 122 yards against Iowa and ranks
third in the ponference. Minnesota also
has a strong pass defense, allowing op-
ponents an average of only 115 yards
through the air.
Northwestern, 0-3-1 in the conference,
will be looking for its first victory in
front of a home crowd not expected to
exceed 20,000. Coach Rick Venturi
doesn't seem discouraged by his club's
0-5-1 overall record however.
"We've really had fine practices this
week. We live for today, and we don't
linger on what's happened in the past."
He believes that the key to beating
Minnesota is to, "eliminate mistakes.
We've played some good football at
times, but we've been losing games by
making mistakes at the wrong times,"
commented Venturi.

Yesterday, at East Lansing, the Michigan field hockey team dropped a
2-1 decision to Purdue, in the Big Ten Field Hockey Tournament. .
Michigan scored first, on Mary Callam's goal, but were held scoreless
the rest of the day. Purdue sent the game into overtime, by scoring within
the last 15 minutes of regulation play.
Neither team scored in two overtime periods, bringing on a five penalty
shot shootout to decide the issue. The Boilermakers won the shootout, giving
them the 2-1 victory.
"Purdue just outplayed us. We were very sluggish . . . we just didn't
have our running shoes on," commented Wolverine coach Phyllis Ocker.
The field hockey team will play a consolation game today at 9:30 in East
Lansing against the winner of the Wisconsin-Minnesota game.

Psalms 2:1 and Acts 4:25

The following selections are from the 3rd chapter of
Genesis beginning with the 7th verse: "And the eyes of them
both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and
they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves
aprons.-And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto
him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the
garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid
myself. And He said, Who told thee that thou wast naked?
Has thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that
thou shouldest not eat? And the man said, The woman whom
thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did
eat. And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou
hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above
every beast of the field-Unto the woman He said, I will
greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow
thou shalt brine forth children: and thy desire shall be to thy

thew: "Blessed are the poor In spirit: for theirs is the kingdom
of heaven.-Blessed are the meek; for they shall inherit the
earth.-Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God.
Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou
shalt not commit adultery; but I say unto you, That
whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath com-
mitted adultery with her already in his heart. And if thy right
eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it Is
profitable for thee that one'of thy members should perish,
and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.-It hath
been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her
a writing of divorcement; But I say unto you, That whosoever
shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication,
causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry
her that is divorced committeth adultery.
