Hoosiers no

joke

I

IMpr o

now

By DAN PERRIN
Imagine, if you can, having to
face two of the top ten teams
in the country back to back!
That's the predicament the
Hoosiers of Indiana face as The
Number One Wolverines travel
to Bloomington tomorrow and
head to Ohio State next week-
end.
To make things worse, the
Hoosiers are without their top
running back, Courtney Sny-
der, lost for the season due to
a broken figula and a dislo-
cated ankle in the opening
game loss to Minnesota.
Snyder, the leading ground
gainer in Indiana history, was
predicted to move from. eighth
to second on the all-time Big
Ten rushing list.
With 2781 yards to his credit
going into the 1976 campaign,
the senior from Steubenville,

Ohio needed only 929 yards to
move behind former Ohio State
star Archie Griffin.
After sophomore tailbacks
Tony Suggs and Darrick Bur-
nett were injured, the most re-*
cent starter is freshman Mark"
Hackrader, who shows great
potential with 548 yards in 91
carries for a 91 yards per game
average, and two touchdowns.
His latest stunt, a 191 yard per-
formance in the Hoosiers 14-7
win over Iowa, was the third
best single game yardage total
by a freshman in Big Ten his-
tory.
Another IU standout has
been wide receiver Keith Cal-
vin, who stands in fourth
place this year on the receiv-
ing list with a six game total
of 17 receptions for 205 yards
and one touchdown.

Senior Terry Jones is the
starting quarterback and thus
far has thrown 46 passes, com-
pleting 18 for 218 yards and two
touchdowns.
As a team, the men from bas-
ketball country are in the bot-
tom half of the conference in
every category except passing
defense, which they given up
a mere 100.5; yards a game,
good for third in the confer-
ence.
The Hoosiers have been
somewhat of a surprise this
season boasting a 2-1 confer-
ence record 3-3 overall, in-
cluding two consecutive wins
over Northwestern and Iowa.
,Head Coach Lee Corso, in the
midst of his most successful:
season at Indiana, thinks the
Hoosiers can finish respective-
ly, if they avoid more injuries.

red soph
By ERNIE DUNBAR
If you were a cross country coach
and had just lost three of your top sev-
en runners, you'd probabl pack it up
and call it a season.
But fortunately for Michigan coach
Ron Warhurst, the three injuries
haven't been as serious as expected.
ONE OF THE MAIN reasons that
the '76 harriers still figure in the Big
Ten title race is the improvement of
sophomores Steve Elliott, Bruce Mc-
Fee, and Doug Sweazey.
Coming to Michigan last year as the
fastest high school miler in the coun-
try, Elliott found college running a
difficult challenge.
He proceeded to have a sub-par cross
country season and looked forward to
the present season to redeem himself.
So far, he's bounced back and estab-
lished himself as one of the team's
toughest runners.
"HE WAS SO determined to suc-
ceed and such a competitor, that he
was struggling to try and race and
stay up in the workouts last year,"
said Warhurst.
"I tried to tell him that if he wouldn't
run as hard in the workouts and just
run a consistently hard training sched-
ule, that he'd probably race better,"
Warhurst added. "But Steve was de-
termined to put in a 100 per cent ef-
fort everyday."

t rspark
After learning by mistake last year,
Elliott, from Pontiac, feels he's made
the adjustment.
"The extra mileage in practice and
learning to run the extra mileage in
races has really helped me," said
Elliott.
"NOW THAT I'M used to the train-
ing," he said "I'm not as tired after
workouts, so I'm rested when I race."
Elliott's biggest race this year came
last weekend when he kicked by two
Michigan State runners in the last 150
yards to give the Wolverines the vic-
tory.
Bruce McFee is the second reason
Michigan's cross country team remains
competitive.
"When Bruce came to Michigan as a
freshman, his credentials were 9:52 for
the two mile, and 4:41 for the mile,"
said Warhurst.
"I DIDN'T EVEN know his name for
the first three or four weeks of the
season,"fhe added.
But McFee, from Battle Creek, stuck
with the team the entife season and
showed steady improvement, dropping
his two mile time from 9:52 to 9:10.
One of McFee's greatest assets is his
attitude.
"He's got a tremendous head for
competition," said Warhurst. "He
doesn't know what it is to get psyched

barriers
out. He'll give you all he's got in a
race."
LO9KING BACK on his development
as a r nner, M'Fee credits an increase
in mileage as one of the main factors
for his success.
"I think a lot of what's helped out
this year is a result of last year," said
McFee. "The training. plus the psysical
ability to do more mileage, has been
a great help.
"This year I've had a dramatic in-
crease in mileage," McFee said. "Last
year I never ran more than 60 miles
a week. Last week I hit my maximum
of 100 miles in a week.
Probably the most unlikely athlete
on Warhurst's squad is Doug Sweazey
from Garden City. At 112 pounds,
Sweazey amazes the cross country
faithful week after week with his gutty
performances.
"DOUG JUST keeps hangin' in
there," said Warhurst. "He's always
smiling and is never bumbed out about
a bad race. His attitude is 'well I'll
just try harder next week'."
Sweazey had early season success
but is now hampered lately by a
muscle pull in his upper hip.
With the improvements of Elliott,
McFee and Sweazey, Michigan's cross
country team has a stronger shot at
winning its third consecutive Big Ten
title.

Tough test for icers;
Tech hosts Michigan
By ERROL SHIFMAN
Michigan hockey fans will get a glimpse of their team's
true colors when the Maize and Blue travel to Michigan Tech
for a weekend series beginning tonight.
WHILE THE HUSKIES promise to be in contention for ,the
top spot in the conference again this year, Tech coach John
Maclnnes says, "We'd be satisfied to be in fifth or higher
by Christmas,". adding, "I don't see this as a championship
team but you never know."
Tech got hit relatively hard by graduation and does have
a few trouble spots.
"It's very apparent that we lost a lot of goal-scoring pow-
er but we lost a lot more. We lost our key face-off men and
most of our key penalty killers and power play. Those are
the little things that may be just as important to success as
a lot of goals."
COACH MacINNES was especially worried about the de-
fense. Steve Letzgus, the Huskies best defenseman is injured
and is not expected to play. Most of Tech's defensemen are
offensively minded -and are led by Paul Jensen, who played
on the U.S. Olympic team last year. Maclnnes is planning to
use Ed Dempsey and Nels Goddard as his top defensive wall
in front of goalie John Rockwell.
ROCKWELL, A SOPHOMORE, will start the first game in
the nets while Bruce Horsch will start game number two. Both
are experienced and should give Michigan problems.
Offensively, the Huskies should be potent. Center Stu Ost-
lund, captain Stu Younger at left wing and right winger Ron
Salt will probably give the Michigan defense all they can
handle. Ostlund ended up last season as one of the top five
scorers in the WCHA. Returning forwards Chris Ferguson, Dana
Decker and Warren Young are joined by promising rookies
Rodger Moy and John Hansen to round out Tech's front lines.
BLUE COACH DAN FARRELL is pleased with the split
at Wisconsin but feels that Michigan must improve to beat
Tech. "Penalties and defense were our two main problems.
Our goalies were constantly under fire by the Badger's pow-
er play."
Both coaches will be happy to split this weekend. Farrell

says "you have to win up the.

job just a little better might mean?

- - --

Money. Cold hard coin of the realm.
If each of us cared just a smidge more about
what we do for a living, we could actually turn that
inflationary spiral around. Better products, better
service and better management would mean savings
for all of us. Savings of much of the cash and frayed
nerves it's costing us now for repairs and inefficiency.
Point two. By taking more pride in our work
we'll more than likely see America regaining its
strength in the competitive world trade arena. When
the balance of payments swings our way again we'll
all be better off economically.
So you see-the only person who can really
do what you do any better is you.
