In tune with the secrecy surround-
ing both teams' practices this week,
Michigan's starting tailback tomor-
row has not yet been divulged by

All three potential Wolverine start-
ing tailbacks have shown great
promise at various times throughout
the season. Harlan Huckleby started
out strongly, Roosevelt Smith came
through in the Wisconsin game, while
freshman Stanley Edwards has
shown consistency in both a reserve
role and his only start last week
against Purdue.
"Everybody is going to play," said
Bo of the tailback situation. "Who-
ever has the hot hand is going to stay
in there."
Otherwise, there will be no major
changes expected when both teams
line up for the opening kickoff.
Most experts claim the outcome
will reduce to the play of junior
quarterbacks Rick Leach and Rod
Gerald. In addition, both offensive
lines have many highly-heralded
players, and the ability of either one
to open up the holes necessary to
each teams' running games will be
The Ohio State offense has
amassed over four hundred yards for

seven consecutive games, mostly by
virtue of its running game, and it will
provide the Wolverine defenders with
their most severe test this year.
Michigan, on the other hand, has
relied on the pass more this year.
Whether or not Bo will continue this
trend into today's game is a matter of
"This year they're going to have to
respect our pass more than they did
last year," said Leach. "We're
throwing better this year and it's
definitely helped us out on offense."
In addition, both defenses have
excelled all year. The Buckeye
defenders have allowed an average
of but 7.1 points per game, while
Michigan's has permitted only 9.1.
Believe it or not, the Wolverines
may hold the edge in the kicking
game. Ohio State's Vlade Janakiev-
ski has hit five of 11 field goals, but
none have been longer than 31 yards,
while Buckeye punter Dave McKee
averages only 35.2 yards per punt.
Michigan's John Anerson averages
40.4 yards per punt, but kicker Gregg
Willner has hit only three of 11 field
goals, although one went for 50 yards.

On the strength of five second period
goals and the stellar goaltending of
Frank Zimmerman, Michigan defeated
the Minnesota Gophers, 7-3, before 3,565
enthusiastic fans at Yost Ice Arena last
THE TWO TEAMS played a tremen-
dously tight-checking, fast skating first
period, and although the Wolverines
had most of the good scoring chances,
the period ended in a 1-1 tie.,
Minnesota's Dan Bonk opened the;
scoring as. he and teammate Tim
Harrer came in on Zimmerman, two on
one, faked a pass and slipped the puck
by the startled Wolverine goalie, after
only 1:49.
Michigan then tied the game up on a
power play goal at 8:51 as Dan Lerg slid
the puck by Gopher goalies Steve
Janaszak from two pretty passes from
Dave Debol and Kip Maurer.
THE SECOND stanza belonged com-
pletely to Michigan as it turned the

ate past
close contest into a rout.
Maurer began the scoring in that
decisive period as he picked up the puck
from a center ice pile-up and drove it
past Janaszak low in his stick side.
Less than three minutes later, Lerg
found himself behind the Gopher net
with the puck and he passed it to cap-
tain John mcCahill at the left point.
McCahill .then shoveled the puck to
Dean Turner and one slap shot later it
was Michigan 3,Minnesota 1.
BEN KAWA picked up a loose puck to
Janaszak's right, skated in unmolested,
and pushed a backhander by the un-
protected goaltender at 12:27.

that Kawa's goal was "the turning point
of the game."
"Even{ at 3-1, it was a hell of a
b'allgame and Minnesota couldn't be
counted out of it. No matter what the
score, the Gophers never seem to quit,"
commented Farrell.
Maurer added his second goal of the
game at 15:38, but the Gophers' Harrer
beat Zimmerman easily as he was left
unattended in front of the Wolverine net
just 31 seconds after Maurer had

over the netminder's glove.
MINNESOTA'S Eric Strobel and
Michigan's Turner traded goals in a
relatively calm third period to close out
the scoring.
Janaszak stopped 30 of the
Wolverines' 37 shots on goal while
Zimmerman turned back 29 of the
Gopher' 32 shots.
Farrell thought his team played "the

best 50 minutes of the year" in this
"MINNESOTA WAS all over us for
the last ten minutes of the game," said
Farrell. "But (a point in our favor is
that) we didn't let them score.
"We aren't really a physical team,
but this was the most physical game of
the year for us. I think it's great, as long
as they (the players) keep the sticks
and the elbows down," noted Farrell,
the two game weekend set concludes,,
tonight, again at Yost, with the opening
face off scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

.. , dreaming, of hockey hoopla
T'S NOT EASY, it never has been easy and it never will be easy. You try to
keep your thoughts on a hockey game with a Michigan-Ohio State football
game on your mind.
It is especially difficult if you have to write about the hockey game, like
I did.
As I sat high above the ice at Yost, my mind started to wander before I
knew what was happening, I was watching the hockey game and thinking
of it in terms of a football game.
It all started when the fans came to last night's game equipped with
facts and stats from all the games Michigan has played against Minnesota
for the last nine years.
The fans know all the previous scores, highlights and are aware that
Michigan needs a sweep, not a split or (heaven forbid) two losses, to
keep its post season playoff hopes alive.
Melt Minnesota and grind the Gophers
As a matter of fact, local stores have been selling candles -with the
likeness of the Minnesota coach on them so that the Michigan fans can
delight in lighting them and watching as the wax melts the face into an
unrecognizable glob.
Media from all parts of the country converge on Yost to witness the
contest. The normally uncluttered press box is bulging at the seams as an
unheard of number of reporters vie for the smallest available space.
Before the game, there is a pep rally with a huge bonfire, members of
team, the band and of course, the Michigan coach. Celebrities, both local
and national, spout forth inspiring words to the vast throng of loyal fans.
On the way to the game the Michigan fight song can be heard from so
many windows that you don't miss a note as you wind your way down
State Street.
Local stores offer special "Ground the Gophers" sales and even the
pet store at Briarwood paints the Minnesota mascot Maize and Blue.
The whole town closes early in anxious anticipation of the athletic con-
test that will take place shortly.
Everything is on the line; the Big Ten title, the trip to the NCAA post
season playoffs, the national championship, lucrative speaking engage-
ments on the banquet tour-and most of all, for the very first time, a waiting
list for student season tickets (not to mention a price increase).
Then, finally, after the national anthem, after the members of both
squads are announced, the game is underway.
Dave Debol takes the puck behind his own net for Michigan, skates the
length of the ice, fakes the Minnesota goalie and'scores. The fans go
wild, the band strikes up the familiar strains of "The Victors" and cheer-
leaders on skates do backflips over the plexiglass (one for each point).
A Golden Gopher forward takes a. pass and skates up ice when
defenseman Dean Turner hits him hard. The fans cheer as the P.A.
announcer gives the Wolverine blueliner credit for a solo tackle.
Media men flood Yost
ABC-TV (who moved the starting time back so that most of the nation
can see the game) shows replays by the dozens, flashes "instant informa-
tion" on the screen, and has play delayed innumerably for commercials.
The producer is smart enough not to show the student section.
With the Wolverines trailing by one late in the game, Kip Maurer
scores the tying goal and shortly later after Bill Thayer intercepts a Minne-
sota pass, Dan Lerg drives home the winning goal. The fans rush out onto
the ice and tear down the goalposts. Their utter ecstacy leads to exhilira-
tion and pours into the community touching off all-night parties.
Oh what a grand and glnrinu day it i sfor Michigan kr.u ..a nd th.
