Michigan teeth sharp
By SCOTT LEWIS
After nine months of dormancy, Michigan Sta-
dium is again ready to open its gates and cater to
another 100,000-plus crowd today when the Wol-
verines host the unreknowned Duke Blue Devils.
A team with enough talent to keep the fans' in-
terest for a few minutes at least, Duke should
catapult itself right up to the ranks of the other
hapless non-conference opponents who have
crawled out of Michigan Stadium in the past few
NOT THAT THE MICHIGAN coaching staff
would have you believe such truths.
"We thoroughly respect them," lauded de-
fensive coordinator Bill McCartney. "They have a
very strong front line. With five starters back on
offense they will be tough. We're very respectful
of the ability of their quarterback Mike Dunn. He's
a big play guy.
If anybody on Duke's squad will pester Mich-
igan, Dunn will be the man. Last Saturday against
East Carolina, which Duke lost 17-16 on a missed
two-point conversion, Dunn hit 14 of 22 passes for
190 total yards. In addition, he rushed for 65 yards.
"I think the secret to beating Duke is stopping
Mike Dunn," said Bo Schembechler. "He has run
and passed for almost 2,800 yards in his freshman
and sophomore seasons, and he led the nation in
scoring for quarterbacks last year with 80 points.
"If we can stop him, we should be okay. If we
don't, we'll be in trouble," he concluded.
DUKE WILL ALSO HAVE the typical incen-
tives that any other teams who play the nation's
top-ranked power have.
"Duke will be sky-high, since they're getting a
crack at the number one team," said offensive
backfield coach Don Nehlen. "They'll be playing
with every ounce of strength they have."
"Duke will attack us by running right at our
strength, and by mixing in a few play-action
passes," said McCartney. "Illinois didn't attack
us, they tried to finess us. Duke presents a differ-
ent type of challenge to our defense."
The Wolverines, accordingly, will make those
changes necessary to ensure a solid victory over
the Blue Devils - none.
"We'll still be trying to do what we've been
doing, and do them better," promised Nehlen.
AFTER A SEVERE outbreak of injuries
during pre-season practice, the plague seems to
have subsided. The status on offensive linemen
Bill Dufek and Steve Nauta remains the same -
out for the first half of the season with broken legs.
Linebacker Bob Hollway is out indefinitely with a
pulled hamstring muscle.
For statistic freaks, running back Harlan
Huckleby currently leads the week-old Big Ten in
rushing and kickoff returns. Punter John Ander-
son paces the league in his specialty, and the team
heads the rest of the Big Ten in both total offense
and total defense.
Unfortunately for Michigan's individual
statistic leaders, however, the first-stringers
will probably see a bit less action than last week,
as Bo should be clearing the bench fairly early.

The Big Ten is out to prove itself
today. Amidst the catcalls from
critics who scoff at the conference's
non-league efforts of late, eight of the
ten schools face outside rivals on the
gridiron this week.
And with a decent showing this
afternoon conference director Wayne
Duke could quiet those who profess
'Big Ten schools can only play Big
Ohio State and Minnesota face
each other in the only conference
action, and both passed their non-
conference tests last week.
The Buckeyes will take the field
without the services of tailback Jeff
Logan and Ricky Johnson. Both
players left the game last week with
Ray Griffin (brother of two-time
Heismann winner Archie) will start
at safety as usual. Only in an
emergency will Griffin be moved to
"If we are going to beat Ohio State,
we are going to have to cut down on
turnovers," said Gopher coach Cal
Stoll. "Last week against Western
(Michigan) we made six turnovers
and that is why the game was so
Even without Logan and Johnson it
could be a long afternoon for the
Leading the non-conference line-up
is the Michigan State-Washington
State contest. Last week the Cougars
upset 15th-ranked Nebraska, 19-10.
Powering Washington State's at-
tack is passer par excellence Jack
Thompson. Last year he set a Pac-8
record with 20 touchdown passes, and
he is sure to be gunning for more
Across the field, Spartan quarter-
back Eddie Smith will undoubtedly
have the same idea. Coming off a fine
aerial effort against Purdue last
week, Smith will again be looking for
All-'Big-Ten receivers Kurt Gibson
and Mike Brammer.
The big surprise in East Lansing
last week was the Spartan rushing
effort. Fullback Jim Earley gained
102 yards, including a 46-yard run
which set up a Spartan score.
Nevertheless, Michigan State is
figured a 12-point underdog going
into the game.
Out in Iowa City, the game the
nation [or at least the Iowans] has
been waiting for has arrived. Re-
kindling the rusty rivalry between
Iowa and Iowa State has brought
furor to the state's football fanatics.
Although the Cyclones are favored
heavily, Iowa has the hometown
advantage and a game this spirited
could produce any outcome.
Down in Bloomington, the Hoosiers
host Louisiana State. After a 30-14
loss to Wisconsin last week, Indiana
is looking to get into the win column.
The Hoosiers however, are plagued
with injuries which hinders their
efforts. Joining standout tailback
Mike Harkrader are defensive ends
Carl Smith and Greg McIntosh.
Illinois Coach Gary Moeller will be
looking for his first victory as a Big
Ten coach today as the Illini face off
against Missouri. Missouri dropped
its opener last week to USC.
Northwestern travels to Tempe,
Arizona to tangle with the Arizona
State Sun Devils for the first time.
Last week the Wildcats lost to
conference foe Iowa, 24-0.
"The team must develop consisten-
cy on offense and defense," said
coach John Pont. "We played well
despite the loss."
Arizona .State is sparked by split
end John Jefferson,swho hasbsnared
122 passes for 1912 yards during his
The Sun Devils also have two
highly-touted defensive players in
linebacker Tim Peterson and defen-
sive end Al Harris.
Wisconsin takes on Northern Il-
linois at Madison. The .Huskies have
been beaten soundly by both Eastern
Michigan and Louisville in identical
The Badgers on the other hand,
have a powerful offense led by
tailback Ira Matthews. Despite a
sprained ankle, Matthews is expect-
ed to start. Joining Matthews in the
backfield is quarterback Anthony
Dudley, who completed 8 of 16 passes
last week for 108 yards.
The final game on the slate pits
Purdue and Ohio University.
The Boilermakers will be led by
freshman sensation M'ark Heurr-
mann. Heurrmann camp. off the
bench -last week and. ,threw 20
completions for 282 yar4ds against
Michigan State. Split end Reggie
Arnold snared seven of those passes
for 107 yards and teammate Ray
Smith caught six for 108 yards.

CHICAGO (AP) - "The season is
just about over," says the Minnesota
Twins' Rod Carew, and so is his
chase for a .400 batting average.
By no means is he tailing off as the
season winds down.
CAREW GOT two hits in five at
bats Thursday night when the Twins
defeated the Chicago White Sox, 7-2.
But his average remained at .381.
He was 10 for 19 in the four-game
Chicago series and extended his
hitting streak to 12 games, but added
only five points to his average.
The statistics indicate just, how
tough it is.
Carew has 218 hits in 572 at bats
and has averaged exactly four
official trips in 143 games. If he
continues to average four at bats in
the Twins' remaining 15 games, a
total of 60 trips, he'll need 35 hits, an
average of .583, to finish the season at
THAT WOULD give him 253 hits,
four shy of the major league record.
"I'll have to get three or four hits a
game. If it's going to happen, it1
happen. I'm not going to worry about
it," Carew said, adding that he didn't
feel the pressure earlier in the season
when he was batting more than .400.
HE SAID he isn't tired this late 'n
the season - "not in this kind pf
weather." The last two games in
Chicago were played in cool, autumn-
He also said he feels strong "except
for my hands. I sprained my wrist.
But otherwise I feel fine."

McGuire first in Blue harrier
intra-team race, Sweazy second
By ERNIE DUNBAR
If Mike McGuire continues to run like
he did in yesterday's intraquad five
mile time trial, the rest of the Michigan
cross country schedule should be a
Running by himself for most of the
race, McGuire left his closest com-
petitor 44 seconds behind, as he whip-
ped.around the University Golf course
The time trial capped the second full
week of conditioning for Michigan's
harriers, with eight days remaining
before the official season begins.
And if McGuire can improve any
between now and the Springbank Inter-
national Road Races on September 25,
his competitors are in for a tough race...
"I'm really happy with the way I
raced today considering we had an in-
tense week of training this past week,"
McGuire commented after the race.
"I can see the week-to-week progress
from my training and I think I'm where
I should be at this point in the season."
Returning to competition after sitting
out last year with a bout with
mononucleosis, McGuire said he still
has "a degree of apprehension" about
racing too hard at the beginning of the
"I got a good thing going now, but I'm
not going to bust my butt this early,"
Even though McGuire won by a con-
vincing margin, the rest of the
Wolverine harriers were by no means
Doug Sweazy came back from a
slow first mile to grab second place in
26:18, while sophomore Dan Heikkinen
was taking third in 26:32.
Last year's number one man, Greg
Meyer, made a post-graduation ap-
pearance to take fourth place at 26:40,
with Steve Elliott following in 26:57.
The freshman contingent of Bill
Weidenbach, Gary Carter, and Gary
Parenteau claimed the next three slots
with times of 26:57, 26:58 and 27:01.
Rounding out the field were Bob
Scheper in ninth at 27:06, Jay Anstaett
in tenth in 27:17 and Mark Foster with a
clocking of 27:59 to take eleventh.
Junior Jack Sinclair (bad cold) failed
to complete the course for the second
week in a row. Senior Bill Donakowski
also failed to make it to the finish line
due to cramps, but neither runner con-
cerned coach Warhurst.
"You see guys like Sinclair and
Donakowski out here today and if you
hadn't seen them run before you'd have
to wonder about them," said Warhurst.
"But come the Big Ten meet you know
Donakowski will be right near the top
and Sinclair won't be far behind."
Comparing last week's time trial to
yesterday, Warhurst said, "We were all
strung out last week and I didn't like
that. Today we had a group of about
five guys cross the line together after
McGuire. That kind of depth will really
carry us," Warhurst added.
One of the early season surprises has
been the races of Doug Sweazy.
After placing a strong fourth in last
week's four mile time trial, and taking
second yesterday, the junior from Gar-
den City was naturally pleased.
"I've been tired all this week from
our training," said Sweazy. "But my
endurance is better all the time. With a
little rest I should be ready to go."
The harvest they reaped
this year was rather grim.
Pqverty and hunger and ig-
norance seem to be their
