Michigan's wrestlers have mold-
ed themselves into the finest dual
meet team in the country. But with
a perfect 14-0 season, the Wol-
verines have accomplished one-
third of what they intend to do
this year.
"We set ourselves three goals
before the season started," mat
coach Rick Bay explains. "We
wanted an undefeated dual meet
season, the Big Ten title, and the
National Championships."
This year's Big Ten Tournament,
scheduled for March 1-2 in Evan-
ston, takes on the aspect of a na-
tionals-in-miniature. Along with
aces from four out of the top ten
teams, the Big Tens also will in-
clude strong wrestlers from schools
like Minnesota, Northwestern, Pur-
due, and even Illinois.
Individually, these grapplers
haven't been enough to push their
squads to the top of the pile.
Brought together in one place, col-
lectively they havethepotential
to annihilate anyone's ambitions.
"I tell my team just two things
before they go out there," the
proud owners of a 27-meet victory

I PLAYOFFS AHEAD:

Icemer
By ANDY GLAZER
The dekers have been dream-
ing about it for a year. They
have been talking about it for
months. They have been getting
close to it in the last few weeks.
Saturday night it happened; the
Michigan Wolverine hockey team
made the WCHA playoffs.
The Wolverines weren't sure
of a playoff spot when they ended
their visit to South Bend with a
4-2 win over Notre Dame, but
when Colorado College skated to
a 6-6 tie with Minnesota later
that night, the amazing Blue were
playoff bound. Its 12-13-1 WCHA
record gives them 25 points; the
most that ninth-place Colorado
can finish with is 24.
"This is the only league where
you can get hot for five or six
weeks and win the whole thing,"
informed Dan Farrell, Wolverine
hockey coach. It remains to be
seen whether Farrell's skaters
can do just what he said was
possible. Three weeks ago the
dekers swept number one ranked
league champion Michigan Tech.
The following week they swept
Colorado College, and left for
South Bend in position to clinch
a berth.

clinch berth

The clinching was slightly de-
layed. In the Friday game the
Wolverines played about as badly
as they have in a long while.
Michigan played like it knew it
was the winner, and figured that
all it had to do to win was to
show un. The Wolverines aban-
doned the very style of hockey
that had made them winners.
The i"ers came back like cham-
nions however, knocking the
Trish all over their home rink in
last weekend's fateful Saturday
game.
What manner of team is this
WAol erine scrad? What chance
do the skaters have in the play-
offs? The answer to the first
onestion is more denendent on the
the answer of the second than
one might think. To have a realis-
tic chance of going to the NCAA
finals, the Wolverines have to be
good enough to sweep Michigan
State this weekend.
Why? Principally because of
the WCHA playoff system. The
first place team rlays the eighth
team, the second the seventh, and
so on. In the second round the
team with the most regular sea-
son points still alive plays the
team with the fewest, etc. Two
WCHA teams go to the finals.
With that in mind, the Wolverines
have one thing in mind: avoid
Michigan Tech in the playoffs if
possible.
If the Wolverines finish fourth,
which they can do by sweeping

Michigan State, and they would
play a reasonably weak team at
home in the first round. If any of
the teams below them win also
in the first found, then Michigan
will play someone other than
Tech in the second round.
The Wolverines should be able
to do it. Their forwards have
been superb of late-Don Dufek;
Angie Morretto; Pat Hughes,
Gary Kardos-the list goes on.
Against Notre Dame, Greg Fox
played about as well as a defense-
man can. Add to that super-
goaltender Robbie Moore and the
spirit that Farrell has instilled in
this team and, yes, it's capable
enough. But why mince words?
The Wolverines are one good
hockey team.
WCHA Standings

118-Jim Brown
Brown and Purdue's Joe Corso
are the class of the conference.
Brown was fortunate to top Corso
4-3 when they met last month, and
both have knocked off everyone
else with little trouble. Since the
top four finishers in each weight
qualify for the nationals, a couple
of mediocre people will fill out the
ranks here.
126-Rich Valley
After a disappointing campaign,1
Valley is going to have trouble
scoring any points. MSU's Pat Mil-
kovich, the 1972 Big Ten and NC-
AA champion, will be heavily fav-
ored, and Iowa's Tim Cysewski,
Minnesota's Jeff Lamphere, and
Wisconsin's Craig Horswill are
also first rate.
134-Bill Davids
The only blemishes on David's
record are a tie with Illinois' Andy
Passaglia, and a loss to Iowa's
Steve Hunte, who may wrestle in
the tournament at 142. Wisconsin's
Jim Abbott, MSU's Conrad Calen-
dar, and Gopher Steve Wessman
round out one of the Big Ten's
strongest weights. Davids should
be top seed, but there aren't any
guarantees here.
142-Bill Schuck
If Wisconsin's Rick Lawinger
ducks Jerry Hubbard and cats to
142, Schuck will tussle with North-
western's Andre Allen - other-
wise, the favorite - and Purdue's
Al Houisner in the battle for sec-
ond. The Spartans' cautious Don
Rodgers is an interesting longshot.
150-Jerry Hubbard
If Lawinger doesn't cut, "Hub"
is going to have to be at his best
to reclaim the title. Iowa's Chuck
Yagla figures to place, and the
rest will be able to enjoy the sights
and sounds of the windy city.
158-Dan Brink
Despite his inconsistency, Brink
has a real chance of qualifying for
the NCAAs if he can cut out his
junior - high mistakes. The top
echelon consists of Iowa's Don
Holm, Minnesota's Larry Zilver-
burg, and Pat Christiansen of Wis-
consin. The Grand Rapids native
has tied Spartan Rick Greene and

190-Dave Curby
Curby's only loss came to Iowa's
Campbell, who'll go at 177, but the
quiet junior had some close mat-
ches on the way. MSU's Scott Wic-
kard and Minnesota's Evan John-
son both lost to Curby by just one
point, and Wisconsin's Laurent
Soucie would be a real threat
were it not for his recent knee in-
jury.
Hwt.-Gary Ernst
Ernst and MSU's Larry Avery
should be able to clean up. The
best shots at finishing third or
fourth belong to Hawkeye Jim
Waschek, Minnesota's Dave Sim-
onson, Indiana's Palmer Klass,
and OSU's Forrest Waugh.
To even try and extrapolate a
team standings from all this would,
of course, be sheer lunacy.

as good a chance as anyone.
177-Rob Huizenga
Huizenga will be favored - his
only in-conference loss came to
Sanderson. Vatch may be a fac-
tor here, as will Iowa's Chris

seed), MSU's Jeff Zindel, and
