Sooners

By CLARKE CQGSDILL
Michigan's wrestlers squeaked
through to their narrowest victory
of the season last night, downing
the sixth-ranked Oklahoma Sooners
17-15 before about 3,500 enthusias-
tic fans in Crisler Arena.
Despite the thin margin, it was
one of the Wolverines' better per-
formances of the year.
Oklahoma pulled a minor sur-
prise before the match, benching,
134-pounder Cris Antonetti, insert-
ing Shawn Garel at 126, and mov-
ing r e g u 1 a r 126-pounder Norm
Hatchett up to 134.
The maneuver half-worked. Ga-
rel combined a takedown and 2-
point near-fall toward the end of
the second period of his match
with Rich Valley to move out to
a 5-0 lead.
As Michigan mat mentor Rick3
Bay pointed out: "You just
can't afford these 4-point mis-
takes when you wrestle against3

this caliber of competition."
Hatchett endured a bleak fate.
Billy Davids manhandled him
for six near-falls on the way to
an amazing 29-S superior deci-
sion, the widest point margin for
any Michigan wrestler this year.
The extra point from Davids'
superior decision formed one-half
of the winning margin. The other
half came from Rob Huizenga's 12-
2 superior decision trashing of Tim
Kerns.

The Maize and Blue went be-
hind the eight-ball in the first
match, when Jim Brown suffer-
ed his first loss of the campaign
against Oklahoma's Gary Breece,
one of the nation's outstanding
men at 118 this year. The loss,
although disappointing, did not
shock.
"I haven't been feeling as well
as Ishould," the composed Brown
post-mortemed. "He's the first
truly tough kid I've had all year.
I needed a match like this to find
out where I stand; I feel I can
beat him next time.'"
Following Davids' success, the
u n d e r appreciated Bill Schuck
scored a takedown with a minute
and a half left in his match with
Sooner Brian Beatson to clinch a
3-2 decision that put the Wolver-
ines ahead for the first time.
Wolverine Captain Jerry Hub-
bard's 10.2 win over Frank Peck,
Huizenga's superior decision, and
Dave Curby's close-but-convinc-

11:32, and stayed in contention the
rest of the way. Brink made a
valuable contribution to Michigan's
cause by avoiding a fall or super-
ior decision.
The same could be said of
167-pounder John Ryan, who as-
tounded just about everyone by
riding out Oklahoma's outstand-
ing Jeff Callard for the entire
second period of their confron-
tation.
But Ryan's moment of glory
came with 1:20 left in the match,
when Callard put a headlock with
the elbow exposed to bring the De-
troit Catholic Central alumnus to
the 'brink of doom. Ryan fought
desperately for more than a mm-
ute from his back, and even his
coach thought he wouldn't make
it-but the three points he denied
the Sooners made all the differ-
ence.

THIN(CLADS TRIUMPH:

PRESS,
eu on the road Blues
By GEORGE HASTINGSE
If someone suggested back in November that'with the Big
Ten basketball schedule half over, Michigan would be in first
place with MSU only a half game behind, most "experts" would
have questioned his -knowledge of Big Ten basketball. Both
teams lost a great deal of talent from squads that had gone only
6-8 the year before, and they also possessed the two most
murderous schedules in the league.
But now, as a result of a long jump shot by the Spartans'
Mike Robinson in East Lansing Saturday, the seemingly un-
likely scenario described above is now fact. Michigan, with
a sparkling 6-1 record, is tied for the Big Ten lead with
Purdue, while MSU at 6-2 along with Indiana at 5-1 are a
mere half-game off the pace. Completing the first division
of the Big Ten is Wisconsin, which had a bad week, but
at 3-3 is still not out of the picture yet.
With the conference leaders jammed as tightly at the top
as they are at the season's halfway mark, it seems likely that
the race for the Big Ten crown is going to go down to the
wire. It's a good time to sit back and take a look at the
schedules of the contenders.
When Wolverine coach John Orr moaned at the beginning
of the year how tough a schedule his team faced, many report-
ers ignored him. They mistakenly assumed that any kind of a
schedule was going to be tough for the Wolverines this season.
But a closer look at the Michigan line-up of conference games
proves that Orr wasn't kidding.
Indiana eases in
Perhaps the best way to look at the Big Ten schedule is in
terms of games among the five top conference powers. Evaluat-
ing the schedule on these terms, the Wolverines appear to
easily take the cake for the toughest line-up. Michigan must
play eight games this season against the other four contenders,
taking on each home-and-home. On the other hand, the other
four leaders have only six games against first-division teams.
But even among the other four contenders, there are
varying degrees of difficulty in schedule. In the Big Ten,
where you play matters just as much as who you play, and
the various teams play a different number of their key
games at home and on the road. Michigan State, for exam-
ple, has to play four of their six "toughies" on the road,
making those contests even rougher.
Indiana, on the other 'hand, was blessed with the easiest
schedule. Of their six important games, four are at home. Fall-
ing in the middle are Purdue and Wisconsin, who each play three
big ones at home and three away.
But what of the Big Ten games still left on the schedule?
Who has the easiest time remaining? Again, the answer
seems to be the Hoosiers, who have four tough contests left,
but play three of them at home. "Indiana, without a doubt, is
the team to beat," Orr says. Wisconsin has a similar line-
up, but with their 3-3 record, they're going to have to win
all of them.
Purdue and Michigan State both have three key games re-
maining, one of them at home and two away. And once again,
the Wolverines appear to have the toughest road ahead of them,
since they play only one contender at home from here on in,
and three on the road.
Title pressure mounts
Several key games appear to be shaping up. Indiana plays at
slumping Wisconsin next Monday night; their last really difficult
road contest of the year. If they get by that game unscathed,
the Hoosiers will be in the driver's seat. The following Satur-
day Michigan is at Indiana and Wisconsin at Purdue, in games
the visitors will almost have to win.
The next weekend the pressure will be on the Wolverines
again, as they play both Purdue and Wisconsin, while Michigan
State journeys to Indiana. Then finally, on the last day of the
season with the conference crown probably on the line, Purdue
invades Indiana while Michigan must travel to Michigan State.
The stakes are high for these final pressure games. The
Big Ten winner, of course, wins a shot at the NCAA Mideast
regional, where such friendly adversaries at Notre Dame
and Marquette should greet them. The second-place finisher
cops an automatic bid to a tourney for second-place teams
from the major conferences, held in St. Louis. Third and
perhaps even fourth finishers could be rewarded with bids for

New York's NIT tournament.
But Orr's sights, of course, are set on the Big Ten title.
To win, he says "We'll probably have to go 12-2, or 11-3, which
might tie it and force a playoff." To do that, though, the Wol-
verines will have to win some big games on the road, especially
at Indiana.
This year marks the last time the schedule will be a major
factor in the Big Ten race. Beginning next season, the confer-
ence will go to an eighteen-game schedule, with everybody play-

information processing systems, electronic surveillance systems, communications
systems, and environmental, health and other social systems.
if you're an EE, Computer Science, Math, Operations Research, or Physics major, you
could be working on problems in telecommunications, voice communications, micro-
wave and digital signal processing, educational information systems, radar design,
propagation studies or advanced modulation, coding, error control and data
compression techniques.
Or, you might want to get involved with water quality management, digital information
systems, data handling and reduction, microprogramming techniques, data base
structure, time sharing, text processing, management information systems for courts
and police, computer program design and development or evaluation of present day
software for phase-over to next generation machines. These are just a few of the
