urdue's

talent

By KATHY HENNEGHAN
"Of course, we have come1
close in a lot of big games,"
said Purdue head coach Alex 1
Agase, "but hell, close doesn't4
even count in horseshoes now-1
adays. The next game is al-3
ways the most important, and1
right now, it's the Michigan1
game."
Yes, the Purdue "Spoilermak-
ers" come to town this week.1
Agase's squad is 2-3 in the Bigc
Ten and 2-6 overall, and at1
first glance does not pose much7
of a threat to Michigan.
But Purdue has been playing'
its best ball of the season in theE
last three games, including up-
sets over Illinois and Michigan1
State.c
"Purdue is on the upswing,"f
said Michigan head coach
Bo Schembechler, "and those
victories over Illinois and
Michigan State indicate to me
that they are ready to play.
"They really have improved,"
Schembechler continued. "Their,
offenseruns the ball more, and
with authority . . . They are
awesome on the ground. I look

at the films, and I cannot be-i
lieve that team is 2-6."r
Earlier this season, Purduel
battled a highly - touted South-1
ern Cal team to a scoreless
halftime deadlock before fallingi
19-6. The Boilermaker defense
held Trojan tailback, Ricky BellI
to 89 yards, his lowest total of
the season.c
At South Bend, Notre Damel
held a slim 3-0 lead over Pur-'
due as late as the third- quar-c
ter. Purdue had the ball on thef
Irish three-yard line before an
interception thwarted the at-
tack. But close just wasn't good
enough as they fell, 17-0. '
Purdue mainly runs an op-t
tion-type offense, with juniort
quarterback Mark Mark Vitali,
6-4, 205, at the helm.t
"Vitali has improved over
last year," said Agase. "There
was a point early in the sea-
son when his confidence defi-
nitely was shaken, up until the
Illinois game, but things turn-
ed around. It's like a putter
not sinking his putts - you
just have to keep at it." I

MICHIGAN FULLBACK Scott Corbin (34) rambles for yardage in last year's Purdue game.
The Boilermakers are in town to battle the Wolverines tomorrow in Michigan Stadium at
1:30 p.m. Purdue carries a deceptive 2-6 record into the contest and if they live up to their
oft-quoted nickname of "Spoilermakers," things could get hairy for the Blue.
