CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF, sportswriting is not al-
ways Budweiser, Boeing and the Sheraton Cadillac. Sports-
writers sometimes stand around Michigan's spring football
workouts in the spine-chilling cold trying to learn a little about
the game. What happens? We get shoved around the field like
enemy spies.
We do have minds of our own, however, and we are capable
of noticing things even the near-perfect Bo Schembechler can't
There is one person on the Michigan roster that Bo Schem-
bechler knows very little about. His name is Mark McCabe and
he is a walk-on athlete. In case you are mixed-up with termin-
ology, a walk-on is the player who is not wined, dined and-
paid to play football at Michigan. He simply wants a fair chance
to make the team. And nothing more.
Mark McCabe is not the usual walk-on. He's strictly a place-
kicker which makes him "expendable" because he can't crash
heads with the rest of the team. McCabe 'received a serious
head. injury while playing football in the eighth grade. He is
not able to withstand contact but his love for playing foot-
ball hasn't ceased. McCabe began kicking seriously after he
recovered from surgery. He practices in his backyard by aim-
ing through the fork of a tree and his efficiency earned him
21 extra-points at University of Detroit high school.
McCabe's "limited" capabilities were not observed by any
college recruiter, so he settled for the University of Detroit and
its club football program.
After not competing as a freshman, McCabe connected on
12 of 14 extra-point attempts and six of eight field-goal tries.
U-D club coach Jim Leary was even more optimistic. "He
(McCabe) can kick with any team on any level," Leary said in
Detroit Friday. "He could win a few games for you (Michigan)."
During that 1970 season, McCabe split the uprights from
32, 34, 26, 35, 38 and 29 yards. "The only kicks he missed were
either blocked or were the result of a bad placement of the ball.
He's also kicked a 52-yarder in practice,' Leary quickly added.
Michigan's school record of 42 yards was set by Dana Coin
in 1970. Once Coin's kicking ability was established, his role
as a linebacker minimized enormously.
Leary realized McCabe's health problem but still allowed
him to participate on the kick-off teams. "He always got the
ball into the end-zone, but then he darted straight for the. side-
lines. We covered his kicks with only ten men," the coach with
a heart explained.
The big break for Michigan came when McCabe obtained
a 3.5 average at U-D and transferred to the research center
of the midwest seeking a career as a lawyer and also as a place
kicker. Last semester McCabe came in at an astounding 3.8, a
1 cinch for the All-America acadimic team.
But McCabe is not familiar with Michigan's "professional"
football and its so-called rules. Because he missed two days of
practice with ligament damage to his kicking foot, Schembech-
ler kicked McCabe off the team without saying a word to him.
So for not reporting an injury to Coach Schembechler,
McCabe is now fighting for another chance to prove himself.
Unbelievably, Michigan is currently without a dependable
place-kicker as both Sehembechler and assisitant coach Jerry
Hanlon indicate. And without McCabe, there will be no Dana
Coin's to pull us through the close games next season. Coin
graduates next month.

Lacrossers overcome Bearcats

Special To The Daily
CINCINNATI - Aided by solid
goaltending and a rock-em, sock-
em defense, the Michigan lacrosse4
team smothered Cincinnati 10-41
esterday on the slippery Astro
Turf of Nippert Stadium.
Jay Johnson and Charlie Crone
shared the netminding duties but
w#re hardly overworked as the de-
fense sparkled, led by junior Pete
"Pete played an outstanding

ed up a lot of ground balls and,
cleared the, ball real well." Lod-1
wick, who played on the Michigan!
freshman basketball team two
years ago, used a few of his old
cage moves to elude several
would-be checks for some 50 and
-yard dashes.
The offense was' far from poor,
however. The midfielders and at-'
tackmen totaled 37 shots, ten ofk
which found the net. Leading thel
way was Carl Burns who talliedl
four goals and an assist. Dick'
Dean also pulled the "hat trick,"I
#coring three times. The odd goals
were contributed by Steve "Crank";
Hart, Dan "Night Train" Lambie,
and Don "Son of Dodge" Holman.,
The win pushed the season rec-

as to be completely rested for the
mid-afternoon encounter yesterday.
anBut that schedule fell through
and all but two of the players who
showed for the game ended up
making the four-hour trip early
Saturday morning. For some this
involved leaving Ann Arbor as
early as 7:00.
In addition, two reliable vet-
erans failed to make the trip at
all. Big Pete Drehmann is usually
relied upon to push people around
whiles playing a stingy defense.
And attackman Skip Flanagan is
greatly expected to feed Holman
regularly from behind the net.
Necessarily his absence caused
Holman to score far below his
average with a mere one goal.

ing pre-game practice, no less.
Starting goalie Johnson, whose
main forte is his ability towhold
the opponents to fewer goals than
Michigan scores, twisted his ankle
while loosening up before the game
and had to be helped off the field.
Attackman - turned - trainer Phil
Powers did a fine job of taping
Johnson up, enough so that he
could start and play the entire
first half, although his mobility
was much reduced. A charley
horse suffered in the first quarter
didn't help any, either.
With Michigan in the lead 7-2
at half, Kaman sent Crone in to
play goal, and he responded with
a well-played half. Crone followed
up a poor showing in East Lansing
