Marsh out for revenge
Tght edowlt
prove he's best

over the Wolverines, hauling in seven
tosses for 79 yards and a crucial third
quarter score. Marsh, meanwhile had a
frustrating afternoon as he grabbed
just one pass, although it was for 45
yards.
This year, it's a new ball game and
Michigan is thirsting to make up for
last season's loss.
"It's more or less a revenge game,"
said Marsh. "It's something we've
thought about all year. We've had a bad
taste in our mouth since after the game
and through the course of the summer.
"It's one we're going to tackle with
great intensity," added the Akron, O.
native. "It's just something we can't
live with here at Michigan. We know
we're the best. We just have to go out
and prove it."
The 6-2%, 230-pound senior currently
leads the Wolverines with 14 catches for
257 yards and one touchdown in just
four games. At his present rate, he's a
cinch to surpass his 1978 totals of 19
receptions for 283 yards.
Marsh admitted he's somewhat
amazed he's the number one receiver
on the team, but at the same time he in-
sists his stats aren't important to him.
"I'm surprised I've been as open as
I've been," said Marsh. "But a lot of
times, Ralph (Clayton) and Alan (Mit-
chell) are open and they (the Blue quar-
terbacks) just couldn't get the ball to
them.
"I feel as the season goes on, they
(the opponents) will probably shut me
off and Ralph will move ahead of me,"
continued the husky 21-year-old. "I
don't care how many times I catch it. I
just try to contribute as much as I can."

Marsh will no doubt have to con-
tribute at least his fair share this
weekend if Michigan is to return to Ann
Arbor victorious over the hated Spar-
tans. Marsh's performance thus far has
been a silver lining on a gloomy
Wolverine offense, which has not
produced consistently yet this year.
Refusing to be pessimistic, Marsh
strongly believes the Blue offense will
sooner or later awaken from its sleep
and put it all together.
"I feel that we (the offense) can ex-
plode at any time as long as we limit
our mistakes," said Marsh, who has
been clocked at 4.6 in the 40-yard dash:
"I feel the thing that stops us from
being a great offensive team is our
mistakes. You know, we drive all the
way down the field, then we stop
because we have a mental mistake here
or miss a block and so forth.
"We limit these things and just play a
good, solid offensive game and our
defense continues to play the way it has
been, I think everything will turn out
the best for us," Marsh added.
And if he continues to excel on the
field, everything should turn out the
best for Marsh! in his bid to prove
there's no better tight end in the con
ference.
In his own words, Marsh predicted,
"If I continue to improve each and
every week, I feel I could be the best in
the Big Ten. I don't want to put the
wagon before the horse, so I'll just have
to keep getting better and better and
then just let the people decide.
"I have nothing against him (Bram-
mer). It's just, a matter of showing
who's the best, that's all."

SCALPERS ASKING SKY-HIGH PRICES
MSU tickets are colored green

situation in East Lansing is also tight.
When questioned about the ticket sup-
ply, Kearney stated that there were
none left, and that a "sold out"
situation has existed for months. He
continued: "Field seats have been ad-
ded to accommodate the excluded
freshmen, and we expect to set an all-
time high for attendance. We're gonna
be filled right to the gunnells."
So, you're going to be cramped and
have to pay through the nose besides?
Maybe not, says Michigan ticket
manager Al Renfrew. Renfrew doesn't
think the scalpers will get much of a
price since the game will be nationally
televised. But he admitted he wouldn't
tell anyone to go up there.
Chris Valas, an MSU student thinks
otherwise. "Most tickets are going for
25-30 dollars a shot. A guy down the hall
from me got 50 dollars for a pair in the
end zone." Valas summed up the

skyrocketing prices, saying, "There
was such a demand for tickets this
season, that most of the freshmen
didn't get seats, consequently it's this
game that everyone wants to see."
A second MSU student agreed with
Valas and added, "There are tickets
available, but you're gonna have to
hustle, and be prepared to talk in long
green.'
So they'll run you some bucks, and
give you an ulcer in their attempted
procurement. The next logical question
revolves around where to look for those
unarmed bandits who call themselves
ticket agents, or to the colloquial,
scalpers? The two MSU students said to
check the notice boards in the dor-
mitory lobbies or cafeterias if you get
there tomorrow. If you're arriving in
East Lansing, on Saturday, the best
areas to find scalpers are the stadium
and parking lots.

There they stood, nearly two million
people, huddled closely on this cool,
crisp autumnal afternoon to hear Pope
John Paul II tell them of the ways of
righteousness.
"In this vast country," he began,
"with its many resources both natural
and man-made," there is a tendency to
adopt materialist modes of existence."
"A-men!" responded the masses.
"To engage in promiscuous ac-
tivities, such as drug abuse, sexual in-
tercourse, and attendance at rock con-
certs."
"A-men!" answered the worship-
pers.
"Therefore, we must resolve to live a
simpler existence. And the first step we
can take toward this new lifestyle is to
submit our Gridde Picks to the
Michigan Daily by midnight tomorrow.
"A-MEN! A-MEN! A-MEN!
