in encore

It was more of the same old Min-
nesota music for the Michigan icers last
night. Second period blues. For the
second night in a row the Gophers erup-
ted for all the goals they needed in the
second stanza and went on to shut out
the Wolverines, 3-0, in front of a sparse
Yost Arena crowd of 3,626.
The victory-and weekend
sweep-kept the No. 1 ranked Gophers

on top in the WCHA with a 12-4 record,
at least two points ahead of North
Dakota and Notre Dame. The
Wolverines. fell to ninth place at 5-11,
still two games ahead of cellar dwelling

game can at least be considered a vic-
tory for the team's self-confidence. The
team bounced back in grand fashion
from Friday night's 10-1 em-

barrassment and skated dead even with
the far superior Gophers.
Minnesota coach Herb Brooks was
quite impressed with the , Wolverines
turnaround. "It's a tribute to Dan
Farrell and the Michigan team that
came back and played so well," he said.
"I knew they'd be tough tonight. I know
the athletes he has and the athletes in
this league . .. it was a helluva series
for us."

is, where has he been?
MASON STOPPED 38 of the 40 shots
fired at him and a few of the saves were
real beauties. Time and time again in
the first period he brought a rousing
cheer from the spectators as the
Wolverines and Gophers played to a 0-0
first period tie. It was the first time
Michigan held them scoreless in one
period all season.
"Mason played a real good game for
us," said Farrell. "We got beat on a

G ILBERT MARCHMAN. He's the man who invented a new type of scor-
ing in football. All a ball carrier has to do is to fly through the air and
fall into the endzone, regardless whether or not he brings the ball into that
glorious area.
Marchman, the line judge responsible for the 1979 Rose Bowl's Phantom
Touchdown, also helped create a new type of spike, that is if one believes
Charles White. The junior USC tailback claimed after the game that he
didn't fumble.
"I thought I scored," said White. "It wasn't no fumble. I released it as I
went down."
Yeah, sure, Charlie, whatever you say. After all, most running backs
spike the ball when they're in mid-air, especially when they're on the two-
yard line.
Before anything else is said, one point should be made clear. Although
the Phantom Touchdown changed the course of the game, it did not
determinethe outcome.wMichigan still had opportunities to win, and any
good team knows that it must play over intangibles such as injuries or
officiating mistakes.
There has been an alarming increase in poor officiating across the board
in both college and professional sports. One obvious cause is the expansion of
interest in big-time sports in the United States, thus enabling the promoters
to offer more teams in professional sports and more big games in college
sports. Just as talent is spread thin among teams, officiating is spread thin
among Fames.
The situation has become so bad, that it may be profitable to recruit at
the major cities' zoos to see if there are any zebras capable of blowing a
whistle. Then maybe in the future some type of artificial breeding could be
used to produce competent officials.
Another procedure that may be useful in curtailing the increase in
officiating mistakes would be to create a Hall of Fame. This hall would be
one that nobody would want to get in, since it would induct only those
officials making crucial mistakes.
But let's get back to the Rose Bowl. With about seven and a half minutes
left in the second quarfer and USC ahead, 7-3, White was given the ball on a
second and goal play. He was smashed by linebacker Ron Simpkins, causing
a fumble. Defensive captain Jerry Meter and tackle Dale Keitz smothered
the ball on the Michigan one-yard line for the recovery.
From here we can play our own version of the 1979 Rose Bowl. All that is
needed is a pair of dice. Roll the dice and match the total with the outcome in
the chart below.

Leach, Davis dazzle
All-Star opponents
By The Associated Press

STANFORD, Calif.-Russell Davis
says he's not going to play in any more
post-season football games. After his
performance in the East-West Game,.
the Michigan fullback doesn't have
much left to prove.
Davis scored a record-breaking six
touchdowns and ran for 199 yards,
another record, on 27 carries yesterday
as he led the East to a 56-17 victory in
the highest scoring East-West game in
"This is it," Davis said. "I'm going
home and rest-it's been a long
Davis, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound running
back, scored the East's only touchdown
in the first half on a 1-yard plunge. His
team trailed 17-7 at halftime.
But he scored five more on the ground
in the second half and gained 168 yards
on 19 second-half carries. The longest of
his touchdown runs was a 19-yard
scamper in the fourth period, and the
others covered 1, 14, 3 and 2 yards.
Davis, rushing total was 52 yards
over the previous record set by Pur-
due's Otis Armstrong in 1972, and he
scored twice as many touchdowns as
the old record holders, Hank Schaldah
of California in 1933 and Gerald Nesbitt
of Arkansas in 1958.

Leach of Michigan led a 23-point fourth-
quarter rally to give the East All-Stars
a 29-24 come-from-behind victory inthe
33rd annual Hula Bowl at Aloha
Stadium yesterday.
The West team, under head coach
Lou Holtz of Arkansas, built a 24-0 lead
with 1:23 left in the third quarter. But
Leach threw for a total of 187 yards, 108
in the second half, and two touchdowns
in the last period to pace the East win.
With 2:54 left, Leach connected for a
10-yard scoring pass to Kirk Gibson of
Michigan State to narrow the gap to 24-
22. Leach then connected with Scott
Fitzkee of Penn State with 20 seconds
left in the game on a 14-yard aerial
score to win it.
Leach and Ted Brown, the running
back from North Carolina State, shared
the offensive honors.
