By BRIAN DEMING
Riding the crest of a four
game winning streak, the Michi-
gan hockey team rolls into
South Bend, Indiana's citadel
of Irish spirit, this weekend to
skate against Notre Dame.
Coach Dan Farrell's Wolver-
ines just completed a sweep of
Colorado College, deposing the
Tigers from first place in the
WCHA and top national ranking.
Michigan won 8-S and 7-3 upping
its season record to 6-4-0 and a
fourth place tie in the WCHA.
NOTRE DAME meanwhile

lost and tied Michigan State 3-5
and 4-4 and are now in eighth
place in the Conference with a
4-5-1 record.
Irish coach Charles 'Lefty'
Smith probably offers Michigan
a weaker opponent than the
Wolverines have faced in re-
cent weeks as the Irish have
managed only two victories be-
sides a sweep over lowly North
Dakota.
Notre Dame's offensive thrust
is powered almost exclusively
by the line of Clark Hamilton,
Brian Walsh and Alex Pirus.

The threesome comprise the
first, third and fourth leading
scorers for the Irish.
HAMILTON, a 200-pound-soph-
omore center, is fourth in scor-
ing overall with six goals and
10 assists. Leading scorer
Walsh, with 10 goals and 12
assists, will flank him. A 160-
pound sophomore, Walsh won
the Outstanding F r e s h m a n
Award in the WCHA last year.
The other member of that
line, sophomore Alex Pirus, has
had eight goals and 10 assists.
On the second line against the
Maize and Blue will be Pat
Conroy, Kevin Nugent and Paul
Clarke. Conroy, a senior center
is second in scoring for the
Irish with seven goals and 13
assists.
IN SPITE OF the disappoint-
ing results against Michigan
State Coach Smith was not un-
happy with his team's perform-
ances. Speaking of Saturday's
game Smith remarked, "I
thought we played the best
hockey of the season. I was,
particularly pleasedswith the of-
fensive output."
The apparent outstanding play
of MSU goalie Ron Clarke who
made 59 saves preserved the
tie for the Spartans.
Smith was also impressed
with the performance of his de-

on

A

fensemen in the series at Eastf
Lansing. Notre Dame has allow-j
ed an average of 3.7 goals per
game thus far in the WCHA.
THE FOUR top defensemen1
for the Irish are senior Les Lar-1
son and sophomores Paul
Clarke, Jack Brownschildle and
Roger Borque. The remaining+
defensemen to go against Michi-
gan has not been settled upon1
but will likely include Pat No-
vitzki, a junior who has been
moved to defense from a wing
position.
In goal for Notre Dame will
be Len Moher from Wellesley,
Massachusetts. The 5-8, 150-
pound freshman made 41 saves
while allowing five goals against
MSU last Friday and has main-
tained a 3.2 goals against aver-
age in WCHA action.
Backing up Moher in the nets
will be another freshman, John
Peterson. A 6-2, 190-pound
goalie, Peterson has allowed an
average of 4.2 goals.!
LOOKING forward to Michi-I
gan, Smith is cognizant of the
Wolverines' strength. "I fore-
casted that they would be one
of the toughest teams in the
WCHA and now they're skating
to prove it. We're going to have
our hands full."
Nobody, other than Robbie
Moore will be sidelined for the

Irish

.z

Notre Dame series due to in-
juries but several nagging ail-
ments will slow the Wolverine
attack. Don Fardig, Gary Mor-
rison, Angie Moretto and Kris
Manery all are nursing various
leg injuries.
Goalie Moore, who has been
out almost since the beginning
of the season with a knee injury,
will miss the Notre Dame series
but may see action in one of
the games against Michigan
State next week.
DON DUFEK, just completing
an outstanding season as wolf-
man on Bo Schembechler's foot-
ball squad, has been practicing
with the hockey team but will
not likely see action for several
weeks.
The Wolverines are confident
that they can continue their
winning ways even away from
friendly Yost. Junior defense-
man Greg Fox offered, "We ex-
pect two victories." The way
Michigan has been playing there
is no reason to expect less.

Johnny Orr .. .t
.can't get no respect
LAST SATURDAY, the Michigan Wolverines opened the 1974-75
basketball campaign with an impressive win over the toughc
Toledo Rockets, and Crisler Arena was less than half full. ThatI
kind of turnout for a defending Big Ten co-champion team was
typical of the fortune of its head coach, Johnny Orr.
Orr is coming off themost impressive season of his coach-
ing career. In 1973-74, he guided a Michigan team that had been
wrtiten off as a cellar-dweller to a 12-2 conference record for
the title tie, knocked off co-leader Indiana for the NCAA playoff
berth, and upset mighty Notre Dame before a two-point loss
to Marquette ended his team's Cinderella story.
But apparently a 22-S record just isn't enough to convince
peoplethat there is anything special about the Michigan basket-
ball program or the man who heads it. Despite his success,'
Orr has not come close to gaining the local reputation that
coaches like Al McGuire of Marquette, Lefty Driesell of Mary-
land, or Bobby Knight of Indiana have in their own areas.
Instead, Orr has been the object of more criticism and in-
sults to his coaching ability in his off years than of praise in
his more successful ones.
Not basketball country
Viewed objectively, the overall Orr record at Michigan is
impressive. His career winning percentage at Michigan is .611,
and sometime early in 1975 he will record his 100th victory as
Wolverine mentor. He enjoys the second-longest tenure of any
current Big Ten coach, and in the six years he has coached in
the Big Ten, only Purdue has a better record than Michigan.
But despite all that, Orr says he is not bitter about his
seeming lack of recognition. "It doesn't bother me," says
Johnny. "At another school, I might be as respected as any
coach in the country. But this just isn't basketball country,
compared to a place like Indiana.
"At some places, they're ready to start talking basketball
in mid-October, after their football team loses its sixth or
seventh game," he smiles. "Here, football comes first until
January.
"But don't get me wrong-I think coaching basketball at
Michigan is one of the finest jobs in the country, and I think I
can coach as long as I want to at Michigan. When I go around
the country, I get as a good a reception as any coach. I'm often
asked to make speeches, and Michigan's basketball program has
wide respect."
Polls don't bother Orr
Last year's success has renewed Orr's zest for coaching,
and he eagerly looks forward to seeing what his team can do
without its superstar Campy Russell. "I don't agree with those
who are writing us off as a contender," he says.
"Sure, it's difficult when you sit down and think about what
you're going to do with the size of our guys. But this year we're
starting off with a lot more confidence than we did last season.
And when I see our guys playing defense like they did against
Toledo, I know we are going to hold our own."
Orr does not seem to be bothered, either, by Michigan's low
standing in the national polls. "I'm sure the lack of big pub-
licity from the Detroit press hurts us in the rankings," he
explains, but says that he doesn't put much stock in the ratings
anyway.
"So many of the independent schools do well in the polls
by scheduling lots of easy games and making most of their early
season games at home. The schools in the major conferences
generally play a much more demanding schedule, and are
ranked lower."
One thing that does please Orr, though, is the fact that the
NCAA is expanding its tournament to 32 teams this year, and
will take two Big Ten representatives. With a team as strong as
Indiana in the conference, it will be no shame if Michigan should
finish second, and Orr relishes another shot at the NCAA.
At any rate, Orr received a highly complimentary letter
just the other day which suggests that maybe the days of
anonymity for he and his team are near an end. If Jim Barahal,
the man who ran for Michigan Student Government Council on
a "Dump Orr" platform, has finally changed his mind about the
coaching ability of Johnny Orr, the rest of the world's critics
may not be far behind.
