!' backfleld has new look

By JEFF SCHILLER
"This is one of the most
talented sets of backs we've
ever had at Michigan . .
it's also the youngest and
most error-prone."
-Chuck Stobart
Offensive Back Coach
MOST OF the uncertainty
surrounding this year's Michi-
gan football team concerns the
performance expected from the
offensive backs.
No one doubts their ability
or potential, it's rather a ques-
tion of whether the group's in-
experience will lead to a ple-
thora of costly mistakes.
At quarterback, for example,
both returnee Mark Elzinga
and freshman Rick Leach pos-
sess the necessary physical at-
tributes but both lack experi-
ence under fire.
Elzinga, academically in-
eligible his freshman year, red-
shirted as a sophomore, and
second-string last year, has the
equivalent of two games experi-
ence over the last three years.j
Leach has never played in a
college game.
Both also suffer from a lack
of familiarity with Michigan's
ground-oriented offense. Each
was an outstanding high school
passer and each of their teams
exhibited a greater aerial pro-
pensity than the Wolverines.

Both must adjust to Michigan's
option attack.
STOBART summed up the
problem neatly, "Both are fine
quarterbacks. Leach is one of
the most mature freshmen
we've ever seen, and Elzinga
has looked very good this fall.
But neither is proven under
game conditions. We'll have to
wait and see."
At wingback, the problem is
somewhat different. Outstand-
ing veteran pass-catcher Jim
Smith starts with sophomore
Max Richardson as reserve.
The drawback is that neither
Smith nor Richardson has much
experience at wingback, each
having been converted from
split end and tailback.

' THIS problem is likely to be1
less serious than the quarter-
backs', particularly in Smith's
case. While at split end, he
demonstrated the skills neces-
sary to play wingback (pass
catching, blocking, and open
field running talent necessary
for reverses).
Depth may be a problem,
because Richardson's shift is
more complex, and the adjust-
ment time will be longer.
Fullback combines the worst
of the two problems. Starter
Rob Lytle was one of the Big
Ten's top runners last season,
but his jaunts came from the
tailback spot.
Compounding the experience
problem is Lytle's change to

fullback this fall, and his in-
ability to utilize spring prac-
tice for easing the transition.!
THERE IS also some con-
cern about Lytle's size (at 6-1,
195 he's a small fullback). Sto-1
bart discounts the problem.
"Lytle will be OK. What he]
lacks in size, he makes up for7
by advantages in other areas1
(such as speed and quickness)."r
Behind Lytle are several
gifted but 'green' prospects.
Sophomores Scott Corbin and
Kevin King played very little!
last year, and both missed a'
lot of practice time with in-1
juries.
Freshman Russell Davis is 1
converting from tailback to1
fullback, and is short of game

experience both in college and
at the position. Freshman
Frank Bell has missed most oI
practice because of injuries.
THE WOLVERINES are in
best shape at tailback. Senior
Gordon Bell (a second team Al
Big Ten selection last year)
returns, and Lytle can always
move over from fullback.
Freshman Harlan Huckleby
has greatly impressed the
coaches during fall practice.
Bo Schembechler's teams
have always been known for
their execution and lack of mis-
takes. If he can cast that spel
over the present group of
backs, their talent could make
this the most productive Michi-
gan offense in recent years.

MEYER WILL LEAD SQUAD

Harriers

to defend

ti lie

j By DAVE WIHAK
In his first season as coach of
the Michigan cross country
team last year, Ron Warhurst
was blessed with a Big Ten
Championship. Now, in his sec-
I ond year, he's counting his
blessings in the form of six
returning lettermen and some
potentially great recruits.
Heading the impressive ros-
ter is the talented All-American
Greg Meyer, who Warhurst
called "the man we count on
the most."
Meyer's credentials back up
his coach's confidence: he fin-
ished third in the Big Tens last
year (he has since then defeat-
ed champ Craig Virgin from
Illinois); he has broken the
school steeplechase record; and
he placed 11th in the Nation-
als.
Following Meyer, the oldest.

member of the squad, are
five talented sophomore vet-
erans. Mike McGuire, another
All-American, had an excel-
lent freshman season as he
set school records in both the
three mile and six mile
events. He returns, with a
year experience, for what
could be a banner year.
The sweetest surprise for
Warhurst came from Bill Dona-
kowski, who finished sixth in
last year'shBig Tens, the high-
est ofany freshman in that
meet. Donakowski will be a
big factor in the Wolverine pic-
ture this year.
Another returning sophomore,
Jay Anstaett, was hampered
by a painful leg injury the lat-
ter part of last season, but ran
to a 22nd place finish in the Big
Tens in spite of it. "Jay has re-
coee well since last year,

and thus far is looking just
super" Warhurst exclaimed op-
timistically.t
Also returning for Michigan
is their fastest miler from last
spring, Mark Foster, who hails
from Huron High, and Bob
Sheper, who Warhurst deemed
a "potentially fine runner who
needs only added experience to
improve himself."
A sophomore transfer, Dave
Heikkenin, could be the
"sleeper" on this year's
squad. Heikkenin had never
run cross - country until last
year, so he's a little inexperi-
enced. But Warhurst says,
"While it's still early in the
season, he has showed us pro-
mising ability."
Some excellent freshmen re-
cruits should add a lot of depth
to this year's squad, and if any
of these boys can live up to
their potential, Coach Warhurstj
may run a very tight group this
year.
For example, Steve Eliott
from. Pontiac was the best
high school miler in the coun-
try, clocked at 4:05:1. Jack
Sinclair was Class B State
champ in cross country twol
years in a row while attending
Grosse Isles, Michigan. Tom
Calvert from Jackson was
Class A State champ in the 2
mile.
Warhurst is depending on
these runners to solidify the
team.
Judging from last year's re-
sults, youth is a bonus situa-

tion for the Wolverines this fall.
"Our young guys proved
they were very dependable peo-
ple last year," Warhurst said.
"The thing they have going for
them is their aggressiveness.
They are not afraid to race
against anybody."
Warhurst maintains that
the key to success will be the
same this year as it was last
season: a team attitude in-
stead of individual glory.
An intra-squad meet will take
place tpday at 4 p.m. at the
Michigan golfcourse. It will be
a four mile time trial, and will
serve as an indicator for any-
one interested in this year's
Wolverine harriers.
With all the talent available,
this year's team is shaping up
to be a real goldmine. And
with a little luck, Coach War-
hurst and his runners just
might find their Eldorado dur-
ing the 1975 campaign.
