will step into starting roles,
pius two others who played
enough last year because of in-
juries or lopsided scores to earn
letters.
And let it not be forgotten
that almost every year Schem-
bechler seems to lose most of
his defensive line by gradua-
tion, yet always comes up with
someone to do a strong job.
At middle guard will be a

player who could almost be list-
ed as a regular from last year,
Tim Davis. Davis split time
with Don Warner at the position
just about evenly, and did a
more than adequate job, often
penetrating into the offensive
backfield to throw the opposi-
tion for losses.
At 5-10, 200, Davis plays mid-
dle guard the way Henry Hill
used to, making up for his lack
of size with quickness and ag-
gressiveness.
THE OTHER part-time start-

er from 1973 is Jeff Perlinger,
who takes over one of the tac-
kle spots for good this season.
Perlinger started several games
when regular Doug Troszak was
injured, and has already shown
himself to be a tackle of the
usual high Michigan standards.
At the opposite tackle will be
another senior who saw a de-
cent amount of playing time
last season, Bill Hoban. Hoban,
whose brother Mike was an All-
Big Ten guard for the Welver-
ines.

THESE ARE the names that
will dominate Michigan's of-
fense in 1974. Look for the Wol-
verines to go with more of a
wide open attack than in the
past few years, largely because
that's the strategy Michigan's
personnel dictates. Sweeps, op-
tions and counter nlays w il1
renlae the straight dive as
Michigan's bread and butter
offense.

Schembechler. "I wouldn't

Bi admits that there. are prob-

that injuries to key personnel
could cause even more serious
y problems than they did I a s t
§year.
When asked how the I i n e
looked after an early scrim-
mage, Schembechler admitted
it had not performed up to his
expectations. Asked if he
thought it would, he said, "Ever

Placekicker Mike Lantry re-
asy comfort and Nrns for his third and final sea-
son of booming kickoffs into on-
these hand soleposing end zones. Lantry broke
the Michigan record for the
4 longest field goal with a 50-yard
d V boot against Stanford and then
moments later broke his own
record with a l1-yarder.

None of the 104,000 plus fans
in Michigan Stadium will ever
forget Lantry's monimental 58-
yard attempt that narrowly
missed in that 10-10 tie with
§ Ohio State. Lantry's perform-
lance earned him All-America
acclaim, an honor he should
againreceive in '74.
