Gophers visit Michigan camp
974) and wasted (45-0 On the injury plus side for Michigan, -- -1 - THE LINEUPS

By HENRY ENGELHARDT
Forget about the jug, forget about the
ig Ten race, forget about bowl bids
nd homecoming. This one is for
evenge.
It wasonly a year ago that Michigan
vas 6-0 and atop .both polls when Min-
hesota shut them out 16-0 in a game Bo
Ichembechler called: "the poorest of-
ensive game we've ever played."
But that one was up in Minnesota, on
real grass, and that day the grass was
Net and slowed the Wolverines down.
oday's game, starting at 1:30, is in
ichigan Stadium on the artificial
,reen.
"WE HAVE A faster track than up
here," said Schembechler, "and speed
s very important."
Minnesota coach Cal Stoll is making
is fourth trip to Ann Arbor, he has yet
o see his team score a point here. His
eams have been basted (42-0, 1972),

pasted (49-0, 1

The Gophers, 3-3, are currently tied
with the Wolverines (5-1) x in the Big
Ten, both with 2-1 records. Minnesota is
riding a two game win streak, having
beaten both Iowa and Northwestern.
Minnesota has an advantage coming
into this duel for the Little Brown Jug
which goes to the game's winner,
because the Wolverines are hurting
physically.
BOTH OF MICHIGAN'S starting
running backs, Russell Davis and
Harlan Huckleby, are nursing injuries.
Davis has a bad knee, hurt last week
against Wisconsin, Wvhile Huckleby has
a groin injury.
Huckleby's backup, Roosevelt Smith,
is also injured, with a bad shoulder.
Flashy frosh Butch Woolfolk, the
fastest Wolverine, is expected to start
at tailback, while Lawrence Reid will
start at fullback.

Billy Dufek, out since, the opening game
with a bad ankle, has practiced all week
and is expected to play.
"This will be a toughgame," said
Schembechler. "I don't see how
anybody could make us 20 point
favorites."f
IF MINNESOTA beats Michigan and
Purdue beats Iowa, then the Wolverines
will no longer control their own destiny.
Michigan would have to defeat Purdue
themselves and hope someone else
would beat them too for Michigan to
return to the Rose Bowl.
"To win this one," analyzed Stoll,
"we'll have to move the football and
stay on the field with our offense. If it's
lopsided in time of possession and
plays, like Michigan 80 plays and us 50,
we're not going to win the game."
The Michigan defense, with three
shutouts to its credit already this year,
worries Stoll. "Nobody scores on them
in the second half," he said, and he was
almost correct, except Michigan State
got one touchdown.
"They have unbelievable speed,"
Stoll continued. "They're the quickest

defense we'll play alli year.

MICHIGAN

MINNESOTA

STOLL AND HIS seniorless offense,
every starter and top backup will
return next year, would very much like
to keep the Wolverine defenders out on
the field. "If Leach, Davis and
Huckleby are on the bench they can't
hurt us," he said.
Huckleby and Davis might be on the
bench, but quarterback Rick Leach will
lead the offense as usual. Leach needs
only one more pass completion to be the
all-time leader in Michigan history for
completions in a career. Leach and Don
Moorhead are presently tied with 200
completes. Leach is nearly a cinch to
break the record this year.
Minnesota will counter with junior
Mark Carlson, a steadily improving
performer at quarterback. Carlson will
be supported by the running of Kent
Kitzmann and Marion Barber, who both
weigh over 200.
Minnesota's 16-0 win last year was
the only time a Michigan-Schembechler
team has been shut out. In that game,
the Wolverines fumbled three times
and were intercepted twice. Minnesota
neglected to turn the ball over at all.

NAIL DULUTH IN WCHA OPENER

Blue dekers silence BL

By BRIAN MILLER
It was a late arriving "crowd that watched the
Michigan Wolverines defeat the Minnesota-Duluth
Bulldogs, 6-4, at Yost Ice Arena last night. However,
the Wolverines played the perfect hosts as they
waited for everyone to get settled before they began
to play good hockey.
Duluth held a slight advantage over Mihigan in
the opening period although neither team did much
more than skate the slickness off the ice surface for
the first ten minutes of the game.
The Bulldogs opened the game's scoring after their
own forward, Scott Carlston, was whistled off the ice
at 11:56, for tripping.
Michigan's captain, Mark Miller, attempted to set
up the Wolverine power play with a centering pass
deep in Duluth's end of the rink. Duluth's John
Harrington intercepted the puck and skated down the!
ice with teammate Glenn Kulyk trailing behind on a
two on one.
Muzzled Bulldo

Once both players crossed Michigan's blue line,
Kulyk headed right for the net-, getting there just in
time to tip Harrington's shot past Wolverine goalie
Rudy Varvari.
The Bulldogs upped their lead to 2-0 four minutes
later when assistant captain John Rothstein blazed a
shot past a partially-screened Varvari.
But Michigan got back in the game, when it scored
with only :53 seconds left in the period. After Duluth's
second goal, Michigan carried the play to the
Bulldogs. Then, with time running out in the period,
Blue defenseman Mark Perry capped off a series of
good chances when he netted a hard, low shot from
the point. Teammate Mike Coffman gave the crowd a
thrill by just missing on a breakaway with only three
seconds left. '
Michigan's Doug Todd, the game's first star,
commenced his team's comeback with a beautiful
shot that Bulldog goalie Jeff Johnson is still looking
for. Coming down ice on a two on one, Todd used a

tlldogs, 6-4
Duluth defenseman and Wolverine Gordie Hampsop
as decoys. Johnson didn't know where to turn and,
Todd capitalized on .his opportunity, muscling the
puck past the bewildered goalie.
The Wolverines pulled away from Duluth in thre
third period, scoring two goals in the first sevef),
minutes. Both goals, scored by Miller and freshmang
Murray Eaves came off set-ups by.Todd.
"We worked hard tonight," said a pleased Blue
coach Dan Farrell. "We broke out of our end better
this week (than last week against Bowling Green:)':
and that helped set up our goals."
Bulldog coach Gus Hendrickson was disappointed-
by the loss though he thought his team also played
well;
"Michigan caught us on a couple of two on ones, r;
he said. "They converted, them, and that was the-
ballgame."
The two teams meet for the series finale, 7:3:
tonight at Yost.

Pistons ege Kings
as Green hits stride
By ERNIE DUNBAR
Special to theDaily
PONTIAC-Rickey Green is at it again.
Green, the former Wolverine speedster, resurrected a slumbering
Detroit Piston offense late in the game last night against the Kansas City
Kings, sparking the Pistons to a come-from-behind 107-102 victory at the
Silverdome. Green, in his second year as a pro and first in a Detroit uniform,
came off the bench late in the third quarter and immediately helped erase a
10-point Kansas City lead, triggering a potent fast break and forcing tur-
novers in an effective all-court press.
And, when he was intentionally fouled with but five seconds left in the
game and Detroit up 103-102, he cooly dropped in a pair of free throws to sew
up the game.
The Pistons' forward M. L. Carr sank two more free throws with no time
on the clock to provide the final margin of victory.,
"I just had to go in there and make them and not think about it," said
Green of his clutch shooting. "When you start thinking about it, that's when
you miss."
But Green, who ended up with 11 points in 25 minutes of action, had plen-
- ty of help, as six Pistons scored in double figures. Center Bob Lanier led the
team with 24 points, including six in-a-row when his teammates were looking
for him down the stretch. The rookie, tandem of John Long and Terry Tyler
scored 23 and 17 points respectively.
The triumph over the Kings (now 3-4) was the second straight for the
Pistons, who lost their first five outings of the year. Dick Vitale, supposedly
a full-time coach, wasn't around to witness the contest. The Pistons new
coach was banned from the arena by NBA Commissioner Larry O'Brien for
his tirade with the officials during last Wednesday's game with Cleveland.
Fill-in coach Richie Audeato was understandably pleased in the win-
ner's locker room after the game. "I just think that our determination in the
second half and the press we started in there were the keys."
On the short end of a 76-60 score with 2:58 left in the third quarter,
Adueato's Pistons certainly needed all the determination they could muster.
But the press began giving the Kings some trouble and the Pistons went on a
13-2 blitz to reduce the margin to 74-73 heading into the final quarter.

OAKLAND (AP) - Charles Finley
has agreed to sell the Oakland A's to a
Bay area group which will keep the
troubled American League baseball
franchise in Oakland, the head of the
group said yesterday.
Ed Bercovich, an Oakland furniture
dealer, would not say how much his
group would pay for the team but the
Oakland Tribune quoted reliable sour-
ces as saying the price is $12 million.
"We've sat down and worked out a
mutually agreeable deal," Bercovich
said. "Mr. Finley has been very, very
nice to deal with and super from the
very first day.
"HE TOLD US what he wanted, he
told us how he wanted it. We told him,

'fine'."
"I'm willing and ready to sell,"
Finley told the Tribune from his
Chicago office. "I'm convinced they
have the money."
Bercovich said final details on the
sale would be worked out when the
American League meetings begin Dec.
4.
"I'd much prefer to sell to the
Oakland group for one reason only,"
Finley said. "I want to see American
League baseball remain in the Bay
area."
Finley's lease at the Oakland
Coliseum has another nine years to run
and prevented him from selling the
team to Denver oilman Marvin Davis
earlier this year.
