I' Finishing a surprising fourth
in the Big Ten tournament last
year, has only wetted the appe-
tite of the Michigan golfers for
the conference crown. Sparked
by Neil Spiralny's runner-up fin-
ish the golfers did a great dea
better than they were expected
to do.
Last year. however. was a
somewhat discouraging one for
the linksmen. Starting tourna-
ments strongly. the Wolverines
somehow faded by the final 18
holes. The Kepler Open in Co-
lumbus and the Miami Open in
Miami, Fla.. were two such
But Spitalny's finish. in :hich
he shot a record 66 for one
round, salvaged the season for
the golfers and pointed the way
towards a bright future for
Michigan golf.
This year. with the seasoning
of top players, coaching addi-
tions, and some anticipated rule
changes, the Wolverines stand in
fine stead to improve upon their
performance of last year and to
make a serious run at the Big
Ten championship.
The rule change involves the
site of the championships. Usual-

a move is afoot to transfer the
tournament to a neutral site.
As Michigan Coach Bill New-
comb explains. 'The home
course advantage in the Big Ten
is so great that a neutral site
is in order." A decision of the
Big Ten coaches is needed to
ratify the proposed change. but
a three man committee to find
alternative sites has been ap-

pointed and :his augers well f~

Iflini team came to Ann Arbor
and had Michigan on the ropes
for the first few minutes before
succumbing to the inevitable,
35-6. Up in Minnesota the next
Saturday the Wolverines kept
possession of the Little Brown
Jug with a 35- win over the
Finally it was down to Pur-
due where a Dana Coin field
goal in the last minute gave
Mlichigan a 20-17 thriller, a
conference championship, and
New Year's in Pasadena.
But the Wolverines were out
after a perfect season and re-
venge: and the next week they
got both.
It didn't come easy however
as a determined Ohio State
defense kept Michigan out
of the endzone until with two
minutes left Bill Taylor scor-
ed on a 23 yard end run to
end to send the largest foot-
ball crowd ever to see a game,
104.016, into pandemonium.
But perhaps more memorable
was Buckeye coach Woody
Hayes' tantrum a few min-
utes later when the referees;
refused to call Tom Darden
for pass interference. Out
onto the field he rushed to
protest, and moments later,
after being hauled back to
the sidelines, he tore up a
nearby down - marker and
then punted the remains on-
to the field. Alas. nothing
could save poor Woody and
the Wolverines emerged with
a 10- victory and an unde-
teated regular season.
However. 11 games doth 'not
a season make these days and
so it was Michigan versus Stan-
ford in the Rose Bowl and the
. than sharp looking Wol-
verines were upended by the
Indians on a last minute field
The always invincible defense
was pierced by a weapon the
Wolverines had seen little of
during the year - the forward
pass and Don Bunce was able
to lead Stanford to a last-min-
ute field goal for their one
point victory in its last game
as Indians.
Over the course of the regu-
lar season Michigan's defense
led the nation in defensing the

score, was second in total yard-
age allowed and first in rush-
ing defense. And despite the
loss of starters Taylor, Tom.
Darden, Mike Keller, and Toni
Beckman the defense aaain
should be the key to the Wol-
verine fortunes,
LETTERMAN Greg Ellis and
Walt Sexton will share the mid-
dle guard duties in Sch-mbech-
ler's 5-2-4 alignment. The tack-
les will be experienced Dave
Gallagher and Grambeau and
Larry Johnson, Don Eaton, and
Clint Spearman are prime can-
didates to hold down the end
Behind linebackers Kee and
Strinko will be a defensive
backfield combining experience
in Randy Logan and Dave El-
liott and youth in Tom Drake
and Dave Brown.
There was nothing wrong
with an offense that last year
totaled 409 points in 11 games
and surpass -400 yards 5 times
but a little variety in the addi-
tion of a passing game would be
a useful diversion. Cipa is
thought to have the best arm of
the quarterback candidates but
Franklin and Slade may be bet-
tel' field generals,
The choice of quarterback may
may be a crucial one for
Schembechler but he was able
to produce a conference cham-
pion last year without one, so
