Bell
By JOHN KAHLER
It is not easy to be ignored
when you are the leading rusher
on the second ranked team in
the country. But somehow, Gor
don Bell has managed.
Bell is one of the people al
lowed to dress unannoyed in
the Michigan locker room after
a game, while crowds of re
porters quiz the Wolverine
stars. No one is pushing him
for national, or even conference
honors.
Bell's anonymity is even
more remarkable when one
considers his style on the
field. Bell possesses fine
speed, and once started, is
extremely difficult to bring
down.-Few defenses ever nail
him on the first try.
Against Illinois, Bell left2

fin stepped into a starting
role as a freshman; Bell stay-
ed on the varsity reserves.
"At first, it bothered me,"
Bell remembers, "as a fresh-
man, you always think you can
step right in and do the job.
But then you realize it takes
times to learn the system.
"I had a lot of embarrassing
situations as a freshman. I had
to learn how to adjust from the
natural turf I played on in high
school to artificial turf. I had
to learnhow to hold on to the
ball. If I'd been put into a game
in a tight situation as a fresh-
man, I'dhhave fumbled."
Bo Schenmbechler is particu-
larly paranoid about fumbles.
A Michigan tailback's playing
time decreases in direct ratio
to the number of fumbles he
loses.
"All coaches don't like fum-
bles," says Bell. "They can
hurt you. We had a 99 yard
drive going against Illinois
when I lost a fumble.
"Anytime you handle the
ball one third of the time,
you're going to give it up. Bo
gives you one fumble grace.
Two fumbles and you're out
of there."

By JEFF SCHILLER
Yesterday was keep smiling'
day for Coach Johnny Orr's
Michigan basketball team, as
the roundbaklers s u f f e r e d
through another annual Meet
the Wolverines session. The pub-
lic unveiling of Michigan's 1974-
75 Big Ten title defenders fea-
tured autograph signings, pic-
ture taking, and an intrasquad
scrimmage at Crisler Arena.
The day was kicked off by a
press luncheon at which Orr
discussed the Wolverines' pros-
pects for the coming season.
"WE HAD anticipated having
a good shot at the Big Ten and
national titles until Campy Rus-,
sell left," the Michigan coach
commented, "but n o w -our
chances are more uncertain.
We are still, however, going to
be a good basketball team."
"We still have four starters
coming back," Orr continued,
"and all are improved over last
year. This year's crop of fresh-
men includes players like Bur-
rell McGhee, David Baxter, and
Joel Thompson who can help
us immediately. Our team has
excellent quickness and exe-
cutes very well. And they're the
most enthusiastic group of guys

I've ever coached."
Then the Michigan mentor
abandoned the generalities and
moved to specifics.
"Our guards, Joe Johnson and1
Steve Grote, can play with any-
one in the country," Orr claim-
ed. "They both play excellent
aggressive defense and both are
good offensive players as well.
Joe Johnson, in particular, is
much better offensively this
year; he's got a lot more con-
fidence in his shooting."
"Wayman Britt and C.J. Ku-
pec can hold their own with
anyone they encounter," he
added. "I hope they get morel
publicity this season. Kupec was
the second leading rebounder in
the Big Ten last year and Britt
was all-Mideast r e g i o n a 1.
They've both shown what they
can do."
Orr finally got around to talk-
ing about the vacated forward
spot.

on our fifth starter yet. Lately
we've been going with Johnny
Robinson who's an excellent re-
bounder and strong around the
basket or freshman Burrell Mc-.
Ghee who is extremely quick,
and has a good outside shot.
Joel Thompson is improving
rapidly andRick White has a
chance as well. We're hoping
that somebody will stand out
and win the position outright."
How about this year's Big Ten
race, coach?
"With the possible exception
of us and Wisconsin, everyone;
in the Big Ten is improved,"
Orr opined. "Indiana has every-
one back and has to rank as
the favorite. Purdue and Min-
nesota will be strong and North-
western will have the best team
they've had since any of us has
been alive. All of their ineligi-
bles are eligible. We'll be in it
though and we could win."
Orr closed with a comment
about the attitude of the squad.
"WE HAVE another challauge{
in front of us this year," he
said. "Last year we had to
bounce back from the disap-
pointing season we'd had the
year before, and this year we
have to prove we can do it with-
out Campy. The squad is confi-
dent, and we're confident as
well."
The scrimmage was a testing
ground for the validity of Or's
words.
The results were predictable.
The Whitesquad composed f
the four returning starters plus
freshmen McGhee and Baxter
and sophomore Robinson domi-
nated the Blue team througovout
running up a 45-25 halftime
edge and coasting to an easy
89-47 rout. Grote, Johnson, and
Kupec paced the Whites with
22, 19, and 16 points respec-
tively.
What was encouraging was
the play of the candidates for
the final starting position. Rob-
inson and McGhee combined f or
22 points and 14 rebounds for
the White team while White and
Thomoson were both impressive
offensively for the losing Blue

contingent.
The coaches were
pleased.

generally

"WE REBOUNDED m.u c h
better tonight," Orr comment-
ed, "and we played real good
defense. All our younger play-
ers looked good; McGhee, Rob-
inson, Thompson, and Dave
Baxter who played errorless
ball out there."
"As far as the fifth starter is'
c o n c e r n e d," he concluded,
"we'll go with John Robinson
the rest of the week and prob-
ably make a decision by Tues-
day."

Miami has given it away10
times.
Yale's 5.7 points per game
