Wolverines

By ROGER ROSSITER
While all you lucky people1
have been frittering away these
last two weeks before classes
started, Bo Schembechler has
been grinding the Michigan foot-
ball team through that hellish
stint known as "two-a-days."
As everyone probably knows,
Michigan again this- year will
likely go undefeated into its
November 23 showdown with
Ohio State, but few people rea-
lize the amount of preparation
and perspiration necessary to
make it all possible.
"We're working this team
hnrd," Schembechler said yes-
terday. "It's the type of thing
we knew would be necessary to
get them ready. They're a great
group of athletes, and they
know that in the end all this
hard work will make them a
better. football team."
EVERY YEAR when the
pads start cracking the injuries
mount and this year is no ex-
ception. Fullback Chuck Heater,
last year's starting tailback,
strained some knee ligaments in
a scrimmage last Saturday, and
his status for next Saturday's
opener is in doubt.
"If he's not in pads by Mon-
day, he won't play against I0-
wa," Schembechler reiterated
yesterday.

HERTZ & HASTINGS
If Heater isn't ready, the full-
back chores will fall in the
hands of sophomores Jerry Vo-
gele and Phil Andrews, a pair
of bruisers in the Ed Shuttles-
worth, Bob Thornbladh, Fritz
Seyferth mold.
MIDDLE GUARD Tim Davis
also knows the training room
well as he, too, has been on the
shelf with an ankle injury. Da-
vis won the accolades of coach-
es and fans alike for his cat-like
quickness and ability to make
the big defensive play at the
most opportune moment.
"We hope Timmy will be
ready for Saturday's scrim-
mage," said a concerned
Schembechler. "He's a key to
our defense and we'd definitely
miss him.
Senior defensive tackle Bill
Hoban, slated to start opposite
Jeff Perlinger on Michigan's
rush line, sprained an ankle on
the same leg he broke last
spring. His recovery has been

to be seen. Greg Morton has

the event Hoban can't play. ]

gives daily raves to the press
at how pleased he is with quar-
terback Dennis Franklin's play.
"He really is great. I can't be-
lieve the things he can do," the
Wolverines' mentor exclaims;
with a gleam in his eyes.
"Dennis the Menace" as his+
friends know him, could easily
get a lot of attention come Heis-+

tions are filled:-(1) he passes
more, and (2) Michigan beats

running, and at his new posi-
tion he will catch a lot of
Franklin aerials as well as.run
with the football.
"We plan to use Chapman a
lot like Nebraska used Johnny
Rodgers," said Schembechler
in expalining his switch from
tailback to wingback.
THE OFFENSIVE line, where
injuries plagued the Wolver-
ines last year, has only now be-
gun to mesh. Pat Tumpane and
Steve King seem to have the
quick and strong tackle posi-
tions locked up, but that could
change in a hurry. Holdover
Dave Metz will again man the
right guard with either Jim Ar-
mour or Kirk Lewis on the port
side.
Center will pose no problemsj
as Dennis Franks, Jim Czirr

and Tom Jensen all bring a
year's experience back from
last season.
A battle is underway for the
split end spot with incumbent
Keith Johnson feeling the rush
of soph Jim Smith. Smith was
the first freshman to play for
Schembechler under the two-
year-old freshman eligibility
rule, but a shoulder separation
cut short his season. Now he's
back and raring to go.
Tomorrow's game style scrim-
mage in Michigan Stadium
should tell Schembechler who
is ready to play and who is not.
After he takes a look at the
films later tomorrow evening,
he will probably set his starting
lineups and work hard all next
week with these people in pre-
paration for the season opener
with the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Summer Roundup
Basketball
Michigan's basketball team suffered a major setback as
All-American Campy Russell asked to be placed on the NBA
hardship draft and signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers this
sunmer.
On the plus side, 6-8 sophomore forward Rick White quit the
football team in order to give all his attentions to basketball.
Tennis
Michigan's tennis team produced some good news and some
bad news this summer. First the good news: the Wolverines ran
away with another Big Ten title by winning eight of nine in-
dividual crowns and finishing second at the other position. The
netters then capped their most successful season in 17 years by
placing third in the NCAA championships, sending Fred DeJeesus
and Vic Amaya to the national singles quarterfinals. All of the
Michigan point-scorers were underclassmen ..-.
. and now the bad news: star sophomore Peter Fleming,
who bounced back from an injury last year to team with De-
Jesus ,in reaching the national doubles quarterfinals is trans-
ferring to UCLA. Fleming cited the good year-round weather
conditions and better competition on the coast as reasons for
the change.

Brewers beat Beantown Boys

By The Associated Press
BOSTON - Gorman Thomas'
two-run homer in the ninth in-
ning gave the Milwaukee Brew-
ers a 4-3 victory over Boston
and knocked the reeling Red
Sox out of first place in the
American League last night.
The Red Sox, losing their sev-
enth straight contest, dropped
a half-game behind the idle
New York Yankees in the hot
pennant race.
Thomas, recalled from the
minors just this week when the
player limit was raised to 40,
smashed his third career ma-
jor league home run, with Dar-

rell Porter on first base via a
walk from loser Diego Segui,
6-7.
The blast made a winner out
of pitcher Billy Champion, 10-
3, who gave way to reliever
Tom Murphy in the ninth. Mur-
phy recorded his 18th save after
giving up a Boston run on
Dwight Evans' RBI bouncer.
The Red Sox, shut out for 34
consecutive innings, broke their
scoreless drought on Cecils
Cooper's two-run double in the
sixth off Champion.
The Brewers, however, came
back to tie the score quickly as

Track
The Michigan track team finished runner-up to Indiana for
the second year in a row in the annual conference champion-
ships this past May, improving on their disappointing fifth place
finish in the 1974 indoor meet.
Co-captains Steve Adams and Kim Rowe successfully de-
fended their championships in the discus and the 440-yd. run,
respectively. Adams placed second in the shot put in addition to
his championship.
The surprise of the meet was when Wolverine freshman
Greg Meyer gritted his way to victory in the 300-yd. steeple-
chase. Meyer spurted from fifth to first in the last 75 yards as
one-by-one the first four runners fell or ran out of gas whilel
Meyer, suffering from no energy crisis, sprinted towards theF
finish line.
During the summer assistant coach Jack Harvey was pro-
moted to head coach to fill the vacancy left by Dixon Farmer's
departure. Greg Syphax is the new assistant coach, while Ron
Worhurst of Nutley, N.J., was named cross-country coach.

Organizational meetings
If your head is spinning from the choas and disorganization
of the last few days at the Waterman Gym, stop the weaving
with involvement with Michigan sports, both intercollegiate
and intramural.

man football managers with trips to Palo Alto, Toledo and
other places dangled as a lure.
Intramural directors are looking for IM softball umpires
and are holding a meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 7:30 p.m. at
the IM building in the Wrestling Room.I
And Women's intercollegiate organizational meetings will be,

tennis, on Monday, Sept. 9 at 4:00 p.m. in the Phys Ed Building_
for field hockey, and on oMnday, Sept. 9 at Waterman Gym,I
Room 23 at 4:00 p.m. concerning tennis.
Anyone interested in the football job should contact Torn
Rasdale (662-5476). For IM positions you should contact Ken
Nemerovski at either (763-1317) or (663-4181). For information
