GOPHERS ATOP WCHA

meet

By BRIAN DEMING
Winning has not been easy for
the Michigan hockey team this
year. After 20 WCHA games
the skaters find themselves with
as many setbacks as victories
and a mediocre sixth place in
the league.
And winning is not going to
get any easier -for the Wol-
verines this weekend.
THE MINNESOTA Gophers,
defending NCAA champions and
ranked number one in the na-
tion, come to Ann Arbor for
games Friday and Saturday
night against Michigan.
Coach of the Gophers, Herb
Brooks, whose team he brought
from last place to a national
championship in just two years,
has put together a young and
well balanced team. After get-i
ting off to a slow start, Min-
nesota has won 15 out of its last
16 games and brings a seven

Discounting the Gophers awe-
some credentials, Brooks, '73-
'74 WCHA Coach of the Year,
points out, "In this league
everybody is capable of beating
everyone else. Everybody is aw-
fully darn close."
Minnesota is now 15-5-0 in
the league, only one point be-
hind league leading Michigan
State.

SPRINTS, HIGHLIGHTED

His grapplers had emerged
from a tough, crowded early
season schedule with losses
only to Oklahoma and MSU.
Except for a series of ailments
suiffered by captain Dave Curhv
they were generally none the
woke for wear.
The seasoris strategv was
going well. Yonng wrestlers
were getting the exnerience
they would need by torn-
ment time and the old hands
were winning at least as much
as exnected.
To his chagrin. however, Jo-
hannesern has discovered that
everv siler li ha a o d.
In 1Vichigan's case that cloed
is iniurv.
"It's inst so disconraine."
lamented Johannesen in a tight
voice after a nractice in which
Tom Evashevski injured his
knee.
The coach, affectionately
known as Billy Jo to everyone
cnnected with the team, had
n.mnned to start Evashevski at
150 pounds this weekend as the
grapplers take their show on
the road to Purdue and Illinois.
Another 150 pounder, Fred'
Lozon, is also out, which leaves
only John King, who has not
wrestled as much as either of
the others, to carry the load.
To make matters worse, the
Wolverines' 142-pound winning
machine, Bill Schuck, injured
rib cartilege in defeating one
of his better rivals and won't
be ready to go in either meet.
"We've been pretty lucky
in the last few years. We've
been able to put our starting
line-up on the mat almostall
the time. This year is dif-
ferent. I talked to Rick Bay
(last year's coach) and he
can't understand it either.
"We were just lucky I guess."
Luck could have picked few
more inopportune times to de-
sert Billy Jo. On January 31
the first ranked Iowa Hawkeyes
invade Crisler in what may be
Michigan's biggest dual meet.

was on the horizon from talking'
with Johannesen. "I don't want
to talk about Iowa," he
snapped; and he didn't. That
left only Purdue and Illinois to
talk about.
"They're both very much im-
proved from last year," ob-
served Johannesen, adding dry-
ly that "Maybe there was no
other place for them to go."
Still, Michigan must still go
out and win the meets.
"They're (Purdue and Illi-
nois) better than they were
last year but we can't lose to
them and still maintain our'
prestige in the conference."
Despite their overall weak-
ness both teams have outstand-
ing individuals. The 126 pound
match between Purdue's Joe
Corso and Jim Brown shapes up
as the best match of the week-
end.
The liini are led by a num-
ber of fine perforiers in the
lighter weights.
Bob Check (118), Phi Miller?
(126), Bruce Beam (131) and
Randy Sulaver (150) are all
respectable.
A little sunshine should en-
ter Billy Jo's life with the
return of Dave Curby at 190
pounds. He will face a tough
test immediately in the per-

son of Illinois' Tom Edgren.
If Curby shows good form
and Bill Schuck's rib cartilage
mends, Johannesen may feel
better about mentioning Iowa.

from various parts of the Mid-
west are competing in the re-
lays. It is primarily the same
field that competed in last
week's Eastern Michigan In-
vitational, with Michigan State
added to the field.
There will be several notable
appearances and absenses when
the 7 p.m. finals begin.
Stan Vinson of Eastern Michi-
gan has one of the more recog-
nizeable names. Vinson broke
the world record in the 410-
yard dash on an indoor 220 oval
track last week at EMU. His;
time was a stunning 47.0. I
THE 60-YARD DASH should
be the night's most exciting
event, with EMU's lasely
Crawford going up against the
recently-declared-ineligible Mar-
shall Dill of Michigan State.
Dill, a noted world-class sprint-
er, did poorly last quarter in
the book department and is run-
ping as an independent.
Michigan's chances in the
meet have been hurt by injuries
to two key runners. James
Grace, a freshman quarter-

miler who ran 47.4 in high
school, is injured, as is Andy
Johnson, a sophomore who was
third in the Big Ten in the
1000-yard run last year.
Michigan coach Jack Harvey
was particularly chagrinned at
Grace's unavailability. "We
would have killed them (EMU
in thermile-relay) with Grace
in there," said Harvey.
Harvey is missing one other
star, shotputter and football
placekicker Mike Lantry. Lan
try is eligible to compete, but
hasn't thrown yet.
"HE (LAN VY) told mZ he
wanted to tbruw, and th'is thej
last I hea'Id irom him," said
Harvey. "What's happening s"
he's waiting on the pro draft.
If he gets drafted, he'll go
where the money is."
But Wolverine Dave Williams,;
who was fourth in the indoor
NCAA in the 600-yard run last
year will be there, along with a
contingent from Ron War iurst's
Big Ten championship cross
country team.
Inspired by their fine new
structure, they could tak a
run at favored EMU.

Colts swap for George

From Wire service Reports
The Baltimore Colts announc-
ed yesterday that they had
traded their number one pick
in next week's National Foot-
ball League draft to the Atlanta
Falcons for offensive tackle
George Kunz and Atlanta's first
round choice.
Kunz, at 6-6 and 268 pounds,
has been an All-Pro choice
three times and played in the
Pro Bowl four times. He was
the Falcons' first pick upon
graduation from Notre Dame
in 1966.
"Kunz is one of the best drive
blockers I've seen in a long
time," said Baltimore General
Manager Joe Thomas. "He

is a proven player who will be
-28 this July, and he should have
a number of good years left."
The Colts also gave up what
- was described as a medium
round selection in the draft to
obtain Kunz.
"One thing the Colts have
lacked is size and strength on
the offensive and defensive
lines," Thomas said. "I've
been wvorking on this since
I've beenhere, and this is an-
other step forward."
Atlanta had the third choice
in the first round of the draft,
so the Colts will myke their se-
lection after the Dallas Cow-
boys make their pick.
