Michigan's spring football prac-
tice culminates this Saturday
E with the annual intrasquad scrim-
mage, an event designed to give
coaches, fans and the press a
look at next fall's team.
Unfortunately, everyone may
have to wait until August to get
a true picture of the '74 Wol-
verines, as a mild epidemic of
injuries this spring has hobbled
19 players. At least half of those
injured, however, will probably
play Saturday, even in their
wounded condition.

"We've had a lot of problems
this spring," said Michigan's

showers in Ann Arbor. A com-
bination of a winter "layoff" and
the fact that scrimmages put
22 Wolverines on the field at the
same time greatly increases the
chance for injury. "And the big
problem," added McLean, "is
we didn't have depth, losing 30
seniors. We had less people to
start with."
Six players can safely be con-
sidered out of this weekend's ac-
tion. They are:
-Eduardo Gonzales, tailback.
Pulled hamstring.
-Jerry Collins, split end.
Knee injury, in a cast.
Jack Fairbanks, safety. Knee
injury, in a cast.
-Matt Caputo, defensive end.
Broken thumb.
Bill Hoban, defensive tackle.
Broken ankle.
-Rick Hoschalk, middle guard.
Pinched nerve.
-Tim Davis, middle guard.
Dislocated elbow.
And very questionable for
Saturday's action is:
-Rick Vogele, fullback. Bruis-
ed shoulder and pinched nerve.
The rest of the injured and the
nature of their injuries are:
Mike Strabley,linebacker. Pull-
ed hamstring, should work out
this week.
-Phil Andrews, fullback. Pull-
ed hamstring, should work out
out this week.
-Craig McMullen, offensive
guard. Sprained knee, on crutch-
es, may work out this week.
-Gordon Bell, tailback. Slight
concussion, should play.
-Jim Smith, split end. Both
big toes sprained, should work
out this week.
Jim Armour, offensive guard.
Bruised big toe, should work out.
-Steve Strinko, linebacker. Hip
pointer, should play.
Rob Lytle, tailback. Bad knee,
hopefully back this week.

-Dave Brown, safety. Bruised
shoulder, should play.
' Harry Banks, defensive back.
Broken thumb still in cast but
will play.
Quite a lengthy list. "Yes,
we've had a little more than
usual," commented McLean.
"But we've been fortunate in the
past. In the spring it sometimes
gets so bad that some teams
have to cancel their spring
games.
"Eastern Michigan has had
three knee surgeries and a
broken ankle already. It's a hey-
day for orthopedic surgeons in
the spring.,
All the players worked on con-
ditioning drills during much of
the three and a half months
since last November's letdown.
According to McLean, this helps
cut down on, injuries immediate-
ly.
Another important element in
the injury picture is artificial
turf.
Since its introduction in the
mid-sixties, artificial turf' for
football fields has been the sub-
ject of much controversy. Orig-
inally intended to cut down on
injuries, the fake grass is now
blamed by some for increasing
injuries.
Michigan has had Tartan Turf
for five years in its stadium and
on its practice field. McLean said
this year's injuries have nothing
to do with Canham's carpet.
McLean continued, "The com-
plaints about artificial turf came
from the professional players,
who are constantly switching
from natural grass to artificial.
It's a different situation with us-
we're on Tartan all the time. I
think the body acclimatizes to
it," McLean revealed.
And he emphasized: "Our rec-
ords haven't shown any more
injuries on Tartan than on grass.
Of course, it's harder, so you
may get more bruises, but no
more severe knee injurie. In
fact, you'll find almost all severe
knee injuries happen on grass."~

Fred Shero, coach of the Philadelphia Flyers, was jumped,
mugged and injured in Atlanta Saturday night, but says, "I
really don't know what happened. I don't even remember going
out..."
A Flyer spokesman said Shero had been jumped by two men
outside the club's hotel in Atlanta following a team meeting.
Shero turned coaching duties over to his assistant for Sunday's
game.
