MARSH, LEONI ONLY VETS
Blue blockers lack depth
By MARK BOROWSKI
"Experience, there is just no
substitute for it," says offensive line
coach Jerry Hanlon. Unfortunately for
Michigan, this will be something the
Wolverines will be lacking when the
football season begins next fall.
Almost the entire offensive line that
started in the Rose Bowl last year has
graduated. Bo Schembechler is looking
for someone to replace Bill Dufek and
Jon Giesler at the tackle positions,
Steve Nauta at center, and Greg Bar-
tnick at one of the guardpositions.
The Wolverines will have to depend
on the linemen they havenow because
they were unable to lure any high
school senior linemen to Michigan in
the recruiting battle.
A bright spot on the offensive line will
be the return of junior tight end Doug
Marsh. "He's had a pretty good spring
so far; the biggest problem is we don't
have enough competition for him," said
coach Hanlon. "He's the only one back
with any experience so he
automatically fits the mold at that
position." Michigan also has
sophomore Chuck Christian, and
freshmen Rich Strenger and Vincent
Shaw vying for the position.
"We only have one experienced

tackle back, that's Mike Leoni (6-21/
246 lb. junior) and the rest of them are
all freshmen. Bubba Paris (6-6% 280) is
the only one who had any game ex-
perience last year. The tackle positions
are up in the air," said Hanlon. ,Junior
Dan Kwiatkowski joins Leoni, Paris
and freshmen Chuck Roland, Tom
Neal, and Ed Muransky in the battle.
Junior.George Lilja (6-4%, 247), who
has been the back-up center for the last
two years, looks like the candidate to

fill the opening at the center position.
"We think he's going to have a good
year this yer. We also have two young
centers backing up in there, Jeff Felton
and Tom Garrity," said Hanlon.
The guard positions may be filled with
a little more know-how. Juniors John
Arbeznik (6-31/, 240) and John Powers
(6-3, 265) are back next year as seniors.
"Arbeznik started at the guard position
last year until an injury and Powers
filled in at both the guard and tackle
positions," stated Hanlon. "We have a
kid named Kurt Becker in there who is
having a pretty good spring so that
will give us some depth at the offensive
Michigan will have a little more size
up front to block for their runners next
year, but Hanlon doesn't feel it will
change any offensive strategy. "We
hope we didn't sacrifice a lot of speed
and quickness, even though we will have
a little more size up front next year.
Defenses are getting bigger so you bet-
ter get bigger offensive people," ex-
Coach Schembechler seems confident
about his offensive line. "I think we'll
be all right at guard and tackle, but
we've got a lot of work to do from the
center position right through to the

NBA REFS JOIN IN:
Umpires picket Yankee Stadium
NEW YORK (AP )- About one dozen
major league umpires picketed in front
of Yankee Stadium yesterday before
the American League opener between
the world champion New York Yankees
and the Milwaukee Brewers.
They were joined by retired National
League umpire Shag Crawford, whose
son Jerry, an NL umpire, was one of the
Also marching with the umps were
Ed Rush and Roger McCann, two of-
ficials from the National Basketball
"We'd never work for what these
guys make," said Rush. "No way."
Ten-year veteran officials in NBA
earn $45,000 compared with $31,000 for
baseball umpires with the same
amount of service.
"I just want parity with officials from
other sports," said AL umpire Bill
Kunkel. "Last year I made $31,000 but
my expenses were $5,000. That leaves
$26,000, and the government took $4,600
of that. At the end of the year, I'm
ashamed to show my wife what I made
for being away from home for 200
Kunkel, an 11-year veteran, said the
fans outside the stadium had been in
full support of the umpires.
"I expected them to be yelling, 'We

"I'd rather not talk about Pryor,"
Colosi said, "but since you asked, that's
the lowest anybody can ever be. I've
worked with Pryor but I wouldn't like to
work with him again. Somebody will
have to, I guess."
Among the umpires picketing the
stadium besides Kunkel, Colosi and
Crawford we~e Marty Springstead, Al
Clark, and Dave Garcia of the AL and
Frank Pulli, Terry Tata, Dick Stello,
Eric Gregg, and Andy Olsen of the NL.
