A sign in the Michigan locker
room greets this year's gridiron
hopefuls with a reminder of the
mighty defensive prowess dis-
played by the 1971 unit:
Michigan: First in the nation'
against the rush, first in the na-
tion against the score, and second
in the nation in total defense.
Defensive coordinator J i m
Young, who has masterminded the
Wolverines to two straight Big
Ten total defense crowns, now
faces the task of molding a co-
hesive team from a storehouse of
fourteen returning lettermen and
a host of talented and anxious
sophomores-to-be.
The least of the defensive wor-
ries lies in the 'pit,' where three
of the five returning starters are
slated for action on the interior
line. This should make Michigan

ability in his attempt for a start-
ing post.
The defensive backfield returns
only one starter from its rela-
tively weak unit of 1971.: Although
the margins of victory last year
were large enough to give the sec-
ond string sufficient experience,
the real problem will be a lack of
depth.
Randy Logan heads the backs
as the only returning first-liner.
He will probably be backed up by
either Roy Burks or Doug Mc-
Kenzie. McKenzie was out with
a back injury last year and spent
the season as a graduate assist-
ant.
One spot where the Wolverines
won't be hurt too much by the
loss of a graduating senior is at
wolf man. Where Frank Gusich
has left Geoff Steger has stepped
in during the spring workouts and
will be tough to oust. His backup
man is Dave Zuccarelli, who is
starting his third season in his
third different position. Also in
the picture is gutty little Jim
Johnston.
Dave Elliot is being tried at
safety, but his latest knee injury
leaves him a big question mark.
He hurt it last Saturday and his
state is still uncertain. Talented
Dave Brown and punter Barry
Dotzauer are also, very much in
the running.
So, Michigan's proud defense
will have to use its spring drills
to develop some needed depth,
and some leadership from the
juniors to guide the young de-
fense. Elliot's comment about the
status of his knee seems to also
apply to the staus of the 1972 de-
fense: "We'll just have to wait
and see."

goalie Karl Bagnell, also a senior,
played every game for Michigan.
Bagnell made 1086 WCHA saves to
lead the league and totaled 1305
for the year.
Named as captain for next
year's squad was Rick Mallette, a
junior from Montreal. A 5-6, 150
pound center, Mallette was named
the team's most improved player
during his sophomore season.
This year the Alton D. Simms
Memorial Trophy for the Most
Improved Player was awarded to
Bob Falconer, a sophomore from
Forest, Ontario. Falconer increas-
ed his point-production by 15
points over 1970-71 and developed
into a hard hitting, hard skating
winger.
Finally, the outstanding fresh-
man of the year was Randy Neal,
a 5-8, 160 pound center from To-
ronto. Neal tied for third place in
team scoring with Paul Paris at
33 points; netting 10 goals and
contributing 23 assists.
