GOPHERS INJURY-RIDDEN:

Blui
By RICK BONINO
Homecoming, the Little Brown
Jug, and good o1' Michigan foot-
ball combine today as the un-
defeated Michigan Wolverines
take on an injury-riddled Min-
nesota squad in Michigan Sta-,
dium.I
The 6-0 Wolverines hope to
break a string of three straight,
lackluster performances, in-
cluding last week's 24-20
squeaker at Wisconsin, and
the Golden Gophers may be
just the team they can flex
their muscles against.. The
Minnesota defense will be
missing at least six regulars,
their quarterback is injury-
prone, and they rely on a one-
man running attack--not the(
stuff strong resistance is made
of.
The inexperience of the Go-
phers' young squad will also
hurt, particularly against a,
team with Michigan's reputa-
tion. Indeed, Gopher coaches
seem to have all but conceded
the game to heavily-favored
Michigan, despite coach Cal
Stoll's statement that "We are
going (to Ann Arbor) with every
intention of winning."
Nonetheless, Michigan coach
Bo Schembechler doesn't expect
to overpower the Gopher de-
fense-or so he says.
"We'lli just run our basic
stuff," Schembechler remarked,
adding, "We'll just wait and,
see what they'll do to try to
stop us." I
Despite Schembechler's pro-
tests that "We'll have trouble +
just winning," the revamped 1

set

and still suspect Gopher line
poses an easy target for Bo's
favorite weapon-the run.
Michigan doesn't have its
usual big, power runners this
year. However, the outside
speed of the current backfield
could be the perfect weapon
against a Minnesota defense
that Stoll admits can't list
quickness as their "biggest sur-
plus commodity."
Stoll said that the Gopher de-
fense must "play above their
abilities if we expect to contain
that explosive Michigan of-
fense."
Although Schembechler prais-
ed Minnesota's defensive effort
in their 23-17 win over Iowa last
week, the Gophers still surrend-
ered 237 rushing yards to an
offense that, as the season
opener proved, is a far cry from
Michigan's.
The secondary hasn't been
much better, allowing oppon-
ents close to 100 passing yards
per game, although this prob-
ably won't induce Schembech-
ler to begin throwing left and
right. Still, Bo remembers
that passing saved some cru-
cial drives against the Bad-
gers last week.
On the defensive side, the
Wolverines' success in capturing
their seventh straight Little
Brown Jug depends on their'
ability to capture the Big White
Jersey, number 40 to be exact,
which belongs to Gopher run-
ning back Rick Upchurch.
Schembechler regards Up-
church as a potent threat. "If
he gets by the line of scrim-

for
mage, we haven't got anyone'
who can catch him," Bo said.
Upchurch runs the 40 yard dash
in 4.25 seconds.
The Michigan defenders will
not be in top running. shape,
either. Defensive end Larry
Johnson, who reinjured his knee
before the Wisconsin game, will
again be replaced by Larry
Banks. Nagging injuries have
sidelined Carl Russ, and Calvin
O'Neal will replace him at line-
backer.
If Upchurch is the key to
the Gopher offense, sophomore
quarterback Tony Dungy is
the hand that turns him.
Dungy, a High School All-
American at Jackson Park-
side, has guided the Gopher
attack impressively - when
healthy.
Both Schembechler and Stoll
agree that Dungy's injuries
have been a major factor in
the Gophers' poor showing so
far this year (1-2 in the Big
Ten), but, as Schembechler
noted, "they were moving the
ball pretty well against Iowa
with him back."
In last year's 34-7 Michigan
debacle, Stoll stuck primarily
to fullback plunges, unleashing
Upchurch only six times and
passing only twice in 49 plays,
even though they trailed the
entire game.
The situation could be differ-
ent this year, however, espe-
cially if the Gopher ground at-
tack grinds to an early halt.
Minnesota has been a running
club, but this is primarily due

Minnesota

to Dungy's absences. When
healthy, Dungy will not hesi-
tate to throw, as evidenced by
his 18-passes per game average.
Dungy may also be en-,
counraged to throw by the1
rash of injuries that has struckl
the Michigan secondary.
Cornerman Dave Elliott will
miss his second straight game,
and both his replacement,
Tom Drake, and wolfman DonI

Dufek are "banged up," ac-
cording to Schembechler.
The Gopher offense won't put
too many new wrinkles in their
basic veer-option attack, al-
though Upchurch has been
known to throw an occasional
option pass. It was that very
play that gave the Gophers
their touchdown in last year's
game-but not many people can
fool Schembechler twice.

WISCONSIN MEETS INDIANA

Potent Illini

stalk Hawks

(!f
t

By JON CHAVEZ
Illinois travels to Iowa this
week hoping to stay a half game
behind Ohio State and Michigan
as the Big Ten hits the halfway
mark in its conference sched-
ule.
Besides the Iowa City con-
test, this afternoon finds Wis-
consin at Indiana, Ohio State
at Northwestern, while Pur-
due invades East Lansing for
Michigan State's homecoming.
The Fighting Illini, 2-0-1 in the
conference after tying MSU last
week 21-21, would like to make
the Hawkeyes their third Bigj
Ten victim. In the next two
weeks, Illinois plays OSU and
Michigan.
Although Illinois trounced
Iowa 50-0 last year, Illini Coach
Bob Blackman expects a much
closer game today. "They are
a vastly improved ball club,"
he, said about Iowa.
But so is Illinois, and the
Hawkeyes will have their hands
full trying to stop the quarter-
backing duo of Jim Kopatz and

Jeff Hollenbach. The nair have'
combined for 355 yards a game
aid completed slightly better4
than 52 per cent of their passes.
The league leading Iowa pass
defense will have to prove their
mettle against the Illini.
A rash of injuries has hurt
the Hawkeye chances. Half-
back Rod Wellington is doubt-
dl and qnarterback Rob Fick{
will play but not start.
The Hoosier fans in Blooming-:
ton expect a high-scoring affair,
when Indiana takes on the
wounded but still dangerous
Wisconsin Badgers. After last,
week's 24-20 loss to Michigan
the Badgers are just about out
of the conference race but as
Indiana coach Lee Corso noted,
"No one has stopped this club.
Even against Ohio State they
moved the ball."
All Big Ten tailback Billy
Marek, hit hard by Steve Strin-
ko last week, has a bruised
knee and remains a question
mark for the Badgers. Other
than that it's the same Wiscnn-

coach John Pont.
He'll behold the awesome
Buckeyes to his heart's content
this afternoon as his outmanned
Wildcat squad hosts the No. 1
team in what could be con-
sidered a criminal act of sched-
uling.
- A more versatile Buckeye
squad travels to Evanston to-
day and last year's 60 point
shutout could be surpassed. In
addition to the running of Archie
Griffin, "Champ" Henson, Pete
Johnson and Brian Baschnagel,
Woody Hayes has the confer-
ence' s leading passer in Cor-
nelius Greene, also the leader
in total offense.
To their credit, the Wild-
cats have been improving, but
will need much more than the
passing of Mitch Anderson to
Scott Yelvington, .and the run-
ning of fullback Jim Pooler

to stop the Bucks.
This week's most interesting
game may be up in East Lan-
sing where a victory by the
Spartans (1-1-1) could put them
back in the Big Ten race.
State's tough defense matches
up well against Purdue's versa-
tile offense. The Boilermakers
are averaging 387 yards a game
and have a deep threat in the
Mark Vitali to Larry Burton
passing combo. Spartan quarter-
back Charlie Baggett had a fine
game against Illinois last week
scoring two touchdowns and
passing for 125 yards.
