Shut

ou

By BOB ANDREWS
"We're just not getting it all together,"
explained Indiana head Coach John Pont
in describing his, team's lack of success
on the gridiron this season. He adds, "al-
though our defense has been fairly con-
sistent, either the passing or running at-
tack has faltered in each game."
Offensive inconsistency is the main rea-
son. why according to Pont the Hoosiers
will bring a dismal 1-6 record into to-
morrow's encounter with the Wolverines.
Although the Hoosiers have been shut
out by three opponents (Minnesota, Bay-
lor and Syracuse) Pont continues to cling
to the philosophy that his best bet is to
"use the offense best suited to our per-
sonnel".
It appears very likely then that the
Hoosiers will come out throwing against
Michigan because last week they threw
for 227 yards against Northwestern's bet-
ter than average secondary. Leading the
Hoosier attack last week was junior quar-
terback Ted McNulty who had his finest
game. of the year, hitting on 13 of 32
attempts for the 227 .yards. Pont will stick
with McNulty this week but has senior
Quarterback Greg Brown in reserve
should McNulty prove ineffective as he
has in the past.
Pont will also start the same trio of
receivers that caused the Wildcat second-
ary headaches: tailback Steve Porter, split
end Alan Dick and flanker Charley Byrnes.
Byrnes leads the Hoosiers in receptions
with 18 for 280 yards.
Dick has accounted for all four Indi-

plagU
ana aerial touchdowns this year and trails
Byrnes with 15 receptions for 146 yards.
The running game, which also has had
its brief moments of glory, is spearheaded,
by sophomore fullback Ken St. Pierre, who
has been a workhorse for the Hoosiers. In
106 carries, St. Pierre has ground out 420
yards and two touchdowns.
After a one game absence because of _
an injury in his 106-yard performance
against Wisconsin, tailback Ken Starling,
another sophomore, will return to ac-
tion. Other members of the running cast
are halfback Rick Hoffman, second on
the squad in rushing with 162 yards and
Porter, who is playing his first year at
offense after being a defensive back and
safety the past two seasons.
Pont feels the most effective way to
attack the Michigan defense is to use a
wide open offense and hope that the
quarterback, receivers and rushers will
all coordinate to yield some potency to the
scoring punch.
The Hoosier defense, according to Pont,
,has played decently all year. However,
he adds, that in the last three games, "our.
secondary has been hurt by the long pass".
This is fairly evident as opponents have
scored 35, 27 and 24 points respectively
in those games, with much of the yard-
age coming through the air.
By comparison, this same defense
yielded just 25 total points to Kentucky,
Baylor and Syracuse earlier in the year.
Indiana will use the same defensive
alignment against the Wolverines that
they have been using all along. They line

wayward

up in a 4-4-3 formation, with the line-
backing considered to be the strongest
area. Pont remarked, "The Wolverines can
hurt you on the ground with their great
backs or in the air if need be, so it is of
no use to make any drastic changes in
our defense".
The fine linebacking corps consists of
Bob Spicer, Mike Fulk, Jerry Johnson and
Chuck Thompson, with the first three
leading the squad in total tackles with
76, 55, and 39, respectively.
Pont feels the reason that the second-
ary has been as porous as it has lately
is the opposing receivers have had greater
speed and have been able to get wide open.
However, the play of safety Mike Heizman
seems to have remained steady as he has
made 29 solo tackles, while intercepting 4
passes and breaking up five others.
Another possible reason for the fall in
the caliber of the defense could be men-
tal. As Pont describes it, "with only the
run or pass working well each week, the
players start soul searching and groping
which has affected our morale".
He adds, however "although the offense
has taken more time than expected to
come around, we aren't going to push
any panic buttons".
Tomorrow, the Hoosiers have an enor-
mous task to tackle: confronting the heav-
ily favored Wolverines and two things are
distinctly possible. First, the defense will
be too preoccupied to worry about their
groping, and second, Pont may finally
find the need to push that button.

Slowly he turned around, eyes glowing crazily in the dark, as he
picked up the dagger from the table. Saliva dripping from his open
mouth, he stalked his prey, slowly, step by step, closing in and driv-
ing it back into a corner, where it huddled in fear, knowing that its
time of existence on the planet Earth, was swiftly drawing to a close.
A quick flash in the dark and the blade was driven home, another
quick flash and then three more in swift succession (slash, cut,
hack) and only then with red dotting the isolated table in the
otherwise bare room, was his savage hunger sated.
After all, a Cottage Inn pizza does satisfy. To test this hypo-
thesis, get your correct Gridde Picks in by Friday (midnight) and
have a happy Halloween.

ANOTHER
PAPPAS

famous

By RANDY CASWELL
Swimming coach Gus Stager's
office and diving coach Dick
Kimball's office are at opposite
ends of the Matt Mann Pool.
To a degree, their predictions
on the Wolverines 'chances this
year are also opposite in nature.
Stager is guardedly optimistic
about the Wolverines chances
because of the lack of depth in
the sprint and distance events.
Kimball is confident, due to the
- physical strength of the team.
Dan Fishburn, a sophomore,
is the only experienced dis-
tance man Stager has. In the
middle-distance events, Michi-
gan's hopes are pinned on the
experience of Ray McCullough
and Tim Norlen.
4 The concern about the sprint
events is somewhat ill-founded.
Stager can probably rely on
Jose Aranha, a transfer student
from Brazil who won a silver
medal in the 100 meter freestyle
in the Pan-American Games in
Columbia this summer,
Pat Stevens, a freshman who
came in 2nd in Michigan in
sprints as a senior in high
school, could be tough if he
adapts well to intercollegiate
competition. Stager, however,
is thinking of moving him, into
the distance events.
4 Despite the graduation of
breaststroker Bill Mahony,
Michigan is fraught w i t h
strength and depth in the stroke
events this year. Heading the
list in breaststroke is sophomore
Stu Isaac, who, according to
Stager, "has the potential to be-
come a national champion."
Senior Mike Whitaker and jun-
ior Dave Clark will add wel-
come depth and experience in
breaststroke competition.
The Wolverines are four deep
in backstroke, with juniors Don
Peterson and Rich Dorney sup-
plying the backbone in this
event.
Freshman Augusto Gonzales

and senior Byron MacDonald,
both medalists in the Pan-
American Games, will provide
Stager with awesome power in
butterfly this year.
In spite of this talent, Stager
remains guardedly optimistic as
to the Wolverines chances in the
Big Ten: "Most college coach-
es feel that Indiana has the
strongest team in its history;
they will not only be the top
contender in the Big Ten, but
they will also be the top team
nationally. I feel that Michi-
gan will place second again, al-
though Ohio State and Michi-
gan State will be pushing us for
this spot."
Despite losing Dick Rydze,
who also won a medal in the.
competition at Columbia this
summer, Kimball is confident
about Michigan's diving talent
this year. "Indiana is just an-
other diving team. We will be
in the thick of it along with
Ohio State."
Junior Joe Crawford, a sure
repeat as an NCAA All-Ameri-
can and National AAU finalist
will fill the spot left by Rydze
adequately in Kimball's eyes.
Other talented Wolverine div-
ers include sophomore Steve
Schenthal, NAAU finalist last
,year, and freshman Dick Quint,
who placed 14th in the U.S. in
tower diving in 1970.
Most of Michigan's divers
train during the summer in
Florida, paying their own way.
Kimball feels that if a team
doesn't train year round, then
they won't be able to compete
adequately with other colleges.
The competition will be more
than adequate this year, India-
na will be a tough contender,
along with Ohio State and
Michigan State. Wisconsin's new
coach Jack Pettinger could pull
some surprises on the confer-
ence contenders in the role of
spoiler this year.

Michigan will be defending a
dual meet record of 10-1 and
2nd place in the Big Ten, start-
ing December 3rd at Minnesota.
The Big Ten Relays are on
January 8 at Indiana, with
Michigan State hosting the
Championships on March 2nd
to close out the season.
The prediction? Take Stager's
talented swimmers and Kim-
ball's gifted divers, add one part
Kimball confidence, sprinkle
with Stager reserve, add water,
and beware the Wolverines.
