WISCONSIN HURT BY GRADUATION
Michigan to battle Badger babes

By RICH LERNER
Like Michigan, the 1976 Wis-
consin Badgers are a young
team. However, unlike the Wol-
verines, whose underclass play-
ers have game experience, the
young Badgers have not been
battle-tested.
Only nine starters return from
John Jardine's 4-6-1 squad of a
year ago. Jardine fears that

the lack of game experience
may hurt the Badgers early in I
the season.
"Last year I said playing
Michigan was a great opener
for us because we were an
experienced football team.f
This year I feel entirely dif-
ferent. It's not a good open-t
er. We'll be going to Michi-

gan with 20-25 sophomores
and freshmen in our two dep
line-up," Jardine said.
Jardine has installed both a!
new offensive and defensive
system in spring practice. Of-
fensively, the Badgers will be
running out of a wing-T forma-
tion.
"It could give us some prob-

lems because we don't see too
many winged-T teams," said
Michigan coach Bo Schembech-
ler.
Last year, the Badgers had
trouble generating a strong of-
fense and with the graduation
of the top two running backs,
Billy Marek and Ken Starch,
plus four-fifths of the interior
line, including All - American
tackle Dennis Lick, Jardine had
to try something different.
Senior co-captain Mike Car-
roll returns at quarterback
where he started seven games
last fall. Much of Wisconsin's
offensive problems stemmed
from the quarterback position
last year, and if Jardine's new
offense is to work, Carroll will
have to show a great deal of
improvement.

receiver of the trio and is a
breakaway threat on reverses
and counter plays.
Jardine's biggest offensive
problems lie in the interior line
where only one starter returns,
guard Terry Lyons. Much de-
pends on the development of
tackles Tom Kaltenberg and
Steve Lick, younger brother of
Dennis.
Defensively, Jardine has in-
stituted the Michigan defense,
a 5-2-4. But experience will once
again be a problem.
Linebacker Mike Kelly has
been felled by injury and Jar-
dine may have to start a fresh-
man, Lee Washington, in his
place.
Co-captains John Rasmussen
(6-312, 266) and Andy Michu-
da (6-3, 238) anchor the line
from their tackle spots and
along with defensive ends Pat
Collins and All- Big Ten Den-
nis Steiskal they represent the
only returning starters on the
defensive unit.
The entire defensive backfield
of last year has graduated and
the Badgers may be suscepti-
ble to the pass.
Ken Dixon steps in as the new
buck back, Jardine's equivalent
to the wolfman. Dixon started
one game last fall, against Illi-
nois. Rising to the occasion, he
intercepted three passes, break-
ing up another two and making
11 tackles.
Vince Lamia returns to handle
the place-kicking chores for an-
other year, with Dick Milaeger
handling the punting.

Despite the loss of Marek and
Starch, the Badgers boast a fine
stable of running backs. Sen-
ior Larry "Sweet C" Canada
is entrenched at fullback, flank-
ed by halfbacks Mike Morgan
and Ira Matthews.
Playing in spots, Canada has
picked up 721 yards in his Bad-
ger career with a rushing aver-
age of better than five yards
per carry.
Morgan has not had much of
a chance to show his stuff,
spending the past two years as
an understudy to Marek. The
speedy Morgan has sparkled on
occasion, gaining 461 yards and
scoring eight touchdowns as a
freshman and tearing off a 56-
yard punt return against Michi-
gan last year.
Matthews is the best pass

GRAND RAPIDS (UPI)-The
fate of six suspended Michigan1
State football players, hoping to
be reinstated for the season
opener Saturday against Ohio
State, won't be decided until two
hours before the Spartans leave
for Columbus today.
A two-day federal court hear-
ing on suits filed by the six
players against the NCAA, the
Big Ten and the MSU athletic
department seeking to overturn
the suspensions concluded late
Thursday, but the judge said he
would not issue a ruling until
this morning.

"We will try to do the best
we can," U.S. District Judge
Noel P. Fox said regarding the
noon deadline for the team's
departure. "We will try to
write the opinion and have it
out by 10 o'clock Friday
morning. We may not cover.
the entire field, but we'll do
the best we' can."
Attorneys for MSU players Joe
Hunt, Michael Cobb, Larry
Bethea, Jim Epolito, Eddy
Smith and Melvin Land had
asked the court to issue a tem-
porary injunction to life their
suspensions in time for the
Ohio State game.
The six players were sus-
pended following an NCAA
probe of recruiting violations at
MSU. The NCAA said the play-
ers were guilty of accepting
favors from coaches and MSU
boosters.
Hunt was suspended for the
entire season and Cobb for five
games. The others were de-
clared ineligible only for the
Ohio State game.
Time is short," said Freder-
ic Abood, a Lansing attorney
representing five of the play-
ers. "Except for Hunt and
Cobb, if they don't have a de-
cision within 24 hours, their
case is over. 4
The players filed the suits
challenging the suspensions on
grounds that they were denied
their constitutional right to due
process before they were de-
clared ineligible.
The judge withheld ruling on
the request to reinstate the play-
ers, indicating he needed time
to digest testimony and argu-
ments made during the two-day
hearing that included eight at-
torneys and representatives of
the NCAA, MSU, the Big Ten
and the suspended players.

Minoso,

53,

to pick up
bat again
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO-Minnie Minoso, 53-
year-old first base coach of the
Chicago White Sox, is being
placed on the active list.
Minoso probably will be used
as a designated hitter during
the White Sox home stand start-
ing Friday night with the Cali-
fornia Angels.
Minoso, named Sox coach in
January after Bill Veeck took
over the club, made his Sox
debut as a player May 1, 1951
and was an instant success as
a favorite of the fans when he
cl'ibbed a home run in his
initial time at bat against the
New York Yankees.
Minoso broke in with Cleve-
land in 1949, played two years
there then joined the White Sox
for seven seasons before re-
turning to Cleveland. He was re-
returned to the Sox in 1960. He
slaved for the St. Louis Card-
inals in 1962 and for Washington
in 1963.
