Minnesota kicker back-
to haunt Wolverines
By BILLY NEFF
Can you picture it now? Seven secon-
ds left in the game, Michigan trails 12-
10 to Notre Dame on national television,
and the Wolverines are attempting a 42-
yard field goal. Place-kicker Paul
Rogind trots casually onto the field to
accomplish his thrilling but yet normal
ritual - that of winning football games
with last second field goals. The kick is
good and Michigan prevails, 13-12.
But wait a minute? This isn't how it
happened. Instead, Bryan Virgil's last
second try was blocked by the Fighting
Irish. And anyway, who is Paul
ROGIND IS the Minnesota Golden
Gophers' record-setting field goal
kicker who dreamed of doing just what
the previous tale said - winning last
second games for Michigan. "I really
kind of wanted to go there, but they
didn't recruit me as much as Min-
nesota," Rogind said in a telephone in-
"I wanted to play defensive back, too.
Minnesota wanted me as a defensive
back and a kicker and Michigan just
wanted me as a kicker," continued
Rogind, a graduate of Farmington
Harrison High School.
"Michigan kind of expected me to
come there because it was Michigan.
They didn't encourage me. My brother
went to school up there and I used to go
to all their games," added Rogind.
ROGIND HAD this to say concerning
the decision he made almost four years
ago, "I'm sorry every January when
Michigan is in Pasadena," the all-Big
Ten kicker noted somewhat dejectedly.
A couple of years ago, when Min-
nesota upset Michigan 16-0 in
Bloomington, Rogind tasted sweet
revenge as he connected on three field
goals of 41, 37 and 32 yards for the
triumphant Gophers. In Rogind's eyes,
"That was probably my biggest thrill at
Unfortunately for Minnesota's op-
ponents, Itogind has had more than his
share of thrills during his college
career. "One year we beat Indiana on a
last second field goal when we made a
great comeback after falling behind 20-
0. Also, the year Washington went to the
Rose Bowl, we beat them on a last
second field goal.
ANOTHER MAJOR accomplishment
of Rogind's was dashed earlier this
year. After successfully converting 56
consecutive extra points, Ohio State
stormed through to block one of his
PATs. "They (OSU) had an unbalanced
rush. They just blew it apart. I don't
know if we missed assignments or
what, but they were right on top of me,"
said Rogind, the 5-10, 179-lb. senior who
connected on eight of ten field goals last
Bothmen and women harriers take to
the road this Saturday. The women
harriers will be running in the Western
Michigan Invitational while the men
harriers will trudge into E. Lansing to
take on the Spartans and Gophers.
"Michigan State is an improved team
over last year,". explains Coach Ron
Warhurst. "Currently, their record is 4-
0. Although they are winning, their
record may not be indicative of their
total quality of competition."
The nine runners competing for
Michigan are: seniors Dan Heikkenin,
Dan Lewis; juniors Charles Broski, Bill
Weidenbach; sophomores Dan Beck,
Steve Brandt, Gerald Donakowski; and
freshmen Charles Broski and Brian
"The times you get are unimportant.
It's the place you get and who you
beat," says Coach Warhurst. "I expect
Michigan to place either first or second.
'Dan Heikkenin is running well and
should finish first.
The E. Lansing meet will be held on a
six-mile hilly terrained course. This is
the same course which will be used to
determine who goes to the NCAA
District Championship. Also, this type
of course is similar to what the team
practices on, around Ann Arbor.
The women harriers face Central
Michigan, Western Michigan, Eastern
Michigan, Spring Arbor and Hillsdale
Colleges in the Western Michigan In-
"Our team is improving with every
meet," says women's coach Ken Sim-
mons. "Barring any injuries, I'm ex-
pecting the team to finish at least in fir-
st or second place."
The women will be running a 5,000-
meter (three miles, 176-yd) course.
Coach Simmons feels that the harrier's
-main disadvantage with Saturday's
meet will be the unfamiliarity of the
"Courses vary," said Simmons.
"Western will have the home course
Some of the Harrier's stronger run-
ners are Melanie Weaver, Susan
Friedrich and Dawn Woodruff. Fresh-
men Weaver and Friedrich were top
Midwest runners, while Woodruff
carried the distinction of being one of
Ohio's top seven high school runners.

Rogind, who aspires to kick in the
NFL ("I have to go out with a good
senior year"), has been dismayed in
previous years with his lack of defen-
sive'play. "I'm not playing at all this
year by my own decision. I got tired of
just practicing. My first three years, I
played defensive back, but they
wouldn't put me in and risk injury," he
One thing that would thrill Rogind to
no end would be to come into Michigan
Stadium and boot the Wolverines to
defeat again. "It's back home for me. I
have a lot of friends who are going to
come," noted Rogind.
All his friends in Michigan would
probably have rather seen him kick for
Michigan - but then, Dan Perrin
wouldn't be famous!
