BATTLE FOR BROWN JUG:

The Michigan Daily-Saturday, October 13, 1979-Page 7

Upstart Minnesota will 'Go-pher' Blue blood

By DAN PERRIN
Ask Michigan coach Bo Schembechler
how good the Wolverines' upcoming
opponent is in any given week, and,
inevitably, he'll rant and rave about
how tough every team in the Big Ten is.
Most of us oelieve him when a top-
notch squad like Ohio State, Michigan
State or Purdue is the scheduled op-
position. But it becomes a challenge to
hold back the snickers when Schem-
bechler tries to convince us how power-
fgl any of the other conference mem-
bers are.
*Yet, the Michigan mentor seems to
have reason to worry about today's in-
voders, the Minnesota Golden Gophers,
who are in town to battle for the legen-
dary "Brown Jug." The Gophers
proved to one and all last week that
they are no easy pushovers when they
upset highly-ranked Purdue, 31-14, at
Minneapolis. The win upped Min-
nesota's league record to 2-1 (3-2
overall), good for fourth place behind a
trio of leaders, Michigan, Indiana and
Ohio State.
'I can't help but feel that it (the win
over Purdue) will give us a positive ef-
fect," said Gopher coach Joe Salem.
"We went into the Purdue ganie
knowing we had a big game on our han-
ds.
"The players practiced hard all
week," Salem added. "I .really felt
Friday that we were ready to play last
week. But one game doesn't make a
season or career."
Salem, in his first year at Minnesota,
brings a team filled to the brim with
seniors in to face the 4-1 Wolverines in a
1 p.m. contest at Michigan Stadium.
Eight of the 11 starters on offense are
fourth year men, while six more seniors
are first teamers on defense. All told,
seniors occupy 14 of the 22 starting
spots. In addition, another senior, Paul
Rogind of Farmington Hills, handles
the place-kicking chores for the
Gophers.

It's this experience that has Schem-
bechler more than a little concerned.
"They're a veteran outfit," said
Schembechler. "They know what
they're doing. They're not going to
fluster easily. That's the same team
that beat us up there (in Minneapolis)
in '77."
While it's true Minnesota upset the
Wolverines 16-0 at Minneapolis -two
years ago, it will be much more of a
.challenge for the Gophers to come out
on top this time around. This year's
game is in Ann Arobr, where Michigan

rarely loses, and where they buried the
Gophers 42-10 last season.
Minnesota will also be forced to over-
come the loss of starting fullback Garry
White, the team's leading rusher with
452 yards and two touchdowns. White is
out with a severely sprained ankle and
will most likely be replaced by senior
Jeff Thompson.
If the Gophers hope to mount any sort
of serious attack against the stingy
Michigan defense, Detroit native
Marion Barber will have to come up
with an encore performance to last

week's three touchdown performance
against the Boilermakers. Barber, who
led the Big Ten in rushing last year
(1,210 yards, 4.4 average), has been
held to 'just' 306 yards in five games
-this season, due in part to Salem's
double wing offense, in which Barber is
used more as a decoy and a blocker.
Other key players on the '79 Gopher
squad thus far this year have been
senior quarterback Mark Carlson, who
has completed 61 of 106 passes for 718
yards and three scores, and linebacker
Jack Johnson, who leads the Gopher
defense with 50 tackles.

PONTIAC - John Shumate, playing his first
game in two seasons, scored 15 points in the third
quarter last night and keyed a 12-point burst that
helped the Detroit Pistons to a season-opening 114.
105 victory over the Indiana Pacers.
Shumate, a 6-foot-9 forward from Notre Dame
who has had three of his seasons cut off because of
pulmonary embolisms, scored eight points as
Detroit expanded a 61-60 lead into a 73-60 margin
while outscoring Indiana 33-19 in the third quarter.
The Pacers cut the gap to six points, 105-99, with
2:37 to play, but Bob McAdoo hit a jumper and
Shumate converted a three-point play to put the
game away.
McAdoo, playing his first game with Detroit,
scored 23 points to lead the Pistons while first-
round draft choice Gregory Kelser added 18 in his
first pro game. Center Bob Lanier equalled
Shumate's point production with 20 and also grab-
bed 10 rebounds.

PITTSBURGH-After 31/2 innings of play a heavy downpour halted play in
last night's World Series action. The Pittsburgh Pirates jumped to an early 30+
lead, but the Baltimore Orioles rallied for two runs and the score was 3-2 at the
time play was stopped.
The hour long rain delay was apparently not enough to dampen the Orioles'
comeback in the fourth. The barrage began when Rich Dauer opened the inning
with a double and Dempsey followed up with a single. Pitcher Scott McGregor
grounded to short setting up Kiko Garcia's three-run triple tilting the scoreboard,
5-2.
THE BALTIMORE onsurge was enough to bring out Pirate relief hand
Enrique Romo replacing Candelaria. But the reliever fared no better hitting Bum-
brywith his first pitch, and giving up one run with a single to Ken Singleton.
It looked like a temporary reprive for the Pirates when "Steady Eddie'.'
Murray flied out, and Doug DeCinces hit into what looked like a certain double
play. But Garner's throw to first went wild, allowing Bumbry to limp home:
In their turn in the inning, the Pirates, apparently still stunned by the
Baltimore sudden comeback went down one-two-three.

Unbeat
By MARK BOROWSKI
Whose turn at the upset wheel will it
be this week? As the Big Two-Little
Eight label wears thin and the talent of
the Big Ten begins leveling out, every
game becomes anybody's game.
Michigan learned that lesson last
year after being embarrassed by up-
start Michigan State. And this year,
with only two games gone in the Big
Ten schedule, pre-season conference
favorite Purdue is already licking upset
wounds after being slashed by the Min-
nesota Gophers, 31-14 last weekend.
-OHIO STATE (2-0) best buckle their
seatbelts as the Indiana Hoosiers drive
into Columbus with the same shiny 2-0
conference record.
"You can just bet that Indiana will
come in here ready to play. They have a
fine team with a good passer and
several fine running backs," said Ohio
State mentor Earle Bruce.
In command of the Indiana team will
be junior quarterback Tim Clifford. He
has a .632 completion percentage and
will most definitely be looking for his
leading receiver, tight end Bob
Stephenson, against an OSU passing
defense ranked eighth in the conferen-
ce.
HOOSIER COACH Lee Corso has two
powerful tailbacks streaking out of his
backfield in Mike Harkrader and Lon-

nie Johnson, but the Ohio State defense
has been very stingy against the run
this year, allowing an average of only
156 yards per game.
But the Buckeyes have a very im-
pressive offense as well, led by
sophomore quarterback Art Schlichter.
Schlichter is the nation's fifth leading
passer and almost single-handedly led
his team to a last second victory over
Minnesota four weeks ago.
The tailback situation is not as
promising for Bruce, though, since he
lost his first three tailbacks to injury
last week. The starting duties will be
placed on the shoulders of freshman
Tim Spencer. Last week he carried the
ball eight times for 48 yards.
DARRYL ROGERS' battered Spar-
tans will try to recover from two con-
secutive losses as they travel to
Wisconsin to take on the Badgers.
The Michigan State offense will still
be hurting as first string quarterback

kidney in the Notre Dame game two

The Badgers, under the direction of

game losing streak.
THE FIGHTING Illini will do battle
with the Purdue Boilermakers, and at
stake is the 75-year-old Cannon, awar-

ded annually for 31 years to the winner
of the game.
Mark Herrmann, the quarterback of
the number one Big Ten aerial attack,
will be trying to avenge his team's loss
to Minnesota at the expense of Illinois
(0-2). The task may not be as easy as it
sounds because the Illini have the
second best passing defense in the con-
ference.
The Northwestern Wildcats will be
searching for their first Big Ten win
since 1977.
