National champion Michigan
Tech is in town this weekend
for a crucial two game series
and despite the Huskies 3-3
record in league play, they are
still considered as one of the
top contenders for the WCHA
championship. Tech is Tech and
the name is synonomous with
success in the Western Collegi-
ate Hockey Association.
"On paper they're not as
good as they were a year
ago," offered Michigan coach
Dan Farrell, "but they're still
Michigan Tech and theyhave
a great tradition of winning."
The Huskies split with Mich-
igan State last weekend, winning
Friday night 5-1 but. dropping
the finale 4-2 on Saturday.
Sophomore center Stu Ostlund
was the big gun for Tech in the
series, getting two goals and the
same number of assists.
Scoring has not been the crux
of the Huskies' problems. With
firepower in the form of centers
Ostlund and Mike Zuke and
wingers George Lyle and Jim
Mayer, Tech is not hurting for
lack of offensive punch. Rather,
it has been their defense, or
lack of it, that has been respon-
sible for their woes.
All-American goaltender Jim!
Warden is gone and Bruce
Horsch, a soph with a goals per
game average of 4.53, is his re-
placement. Inexperience h a s
been one of the major factors in
the Huskies' defensive break-
down-they have only one senior'
defenseman, Scott Jessee, who
has played in every game.
Ed Dempsey, Steve Letzgus,
Nels Goddard and Joe Sparks
are the other defensemen that
that Wolverines can expect to
see this weekend.
Zuke leads the team in
scoring with 11 points (5 goals,
6 assists), followed by Lyle's
9 (5, 4) and right winger Jim
Mayer, also with 9 points
(1, 8). Ostlund, off to a slow
start until last weekend has
bagged 3 goals and assisted
on 4 others.
"This is a huge team," com-
mented Farrell, a graduate and
former assistant coach at Tech.
"Guys the size of a Moretto and
Lindskog are the rule rather
than the exception.'
"It should be a good hitting
series," continued Farrell. "But
it doesn't bother me because I
know it will be good hitting, and
not the rough stuff."
Freshman Dan Cormier has
rejoined the Michigan team.
Cormier left last week for his
home in Toronto, Ontario with
Farrell's permission to reassess
his position at Michigan. He re-
turned earlier this week and is
now back on the squad. Farrell
plans to use Cormier only spar-
ingly until the freshman gets
his bookwork under control.
Farrell said that Cormier will
dress this weekend but won't
Against N o t r e D a m e last
weekend, the Michigan coach
unveiled a major change in the
Moretto line with Ben Kawa be-
ing switched from defense to
left wing and freshman Mark
Miller taking over the right wing
spot for Pat Hughes, who has an
injured right knee.
Farrell explained the move,
saying "It was necessitated for
two major reasons. One, Cor-
mier had left for home and we
needed a left winger to replace
him and we needed a right wing
for Hughes and secondly, Mo-
retto needed the puck more.
"Moretto's best shot is from
the slot in the middle. He's
a lot like Phil Esposito in this
respect--and we needed some-
one who could go into the cor-
ner and get the puck out to
him," continued the Michigan
"Bennie can go and dig the
puck out for him and I was real'
pleased with Miller. You don't
have the great scoring combina-
tion of a Doug Lindskog and Pat
Hughes but you do have the two
who can get the puck to Mo-
retto. They've forced him into
playing well," finished Farrell.E
The defense pairings of Tom
Lindskog and Rob Palmer and
Greg Fox and Greg Natale re-
main the same with John Mc-
Cahill and freshman John Way-
mann being used as swingman.
Especially pleasing to Farrell
thus far in the season has been
the play of Kris Manery and
Doug Lindskog. "They've been
playing just super," beamed
Farrell. "Kris Manery is a com-
plete hockey player and Doug's
It promises to be a tough
series, as always when Mich-
igan and Michigan Tech meet.
John MacInnes, the coach of
Tech, is a Michigan grad and
coupled with Farrell's former
connections with the Upper Pen-
insula school, this game is more
than an a v e r a g e intra-state
Make no bones about it
t h o u g h, the Wolverines are
shooting for the big sweep this
weekend. "We're playing for a
sweep, sure," grinned the Mich-
igan .coach. "We're confident
that we can sweep the seires.
It'll take a great effort, no ques-
tion about it."
'Ensemble plays show tight compelling work.
...excellent in quality, and the overall result
was unquestionably first rate."

CORNELIUS GREENE, the leader of the powerful Ohio
State backfield feels the pressure of Dan Jilek (81) of
Michigan in last years game. Greene (7) and Pete John-
son (33), the big fullback, are two of the big reasons for
the Buckeyes offensive might. Then there's Archie Griffin
and Brian Baschnagel to contend with. Jilek and cohorts
have their work cut out for them tomorrow when they
entertain the big, bad Bucks.

Bucks wield mighty offense
By RAY O'HARA
There are a lot of rumors
floating around about the Ohio
State offensive unit. The story
varies with whoever is telling
it but the thrust is always the
same: the OSU offense is some-

If this play sounds familiar, it
should. Michigan employs it as
often as Ohio State does.
This type of offense can rack
up quite a few yards and num-
erous points if a team has the
personnel to make it go, name-

threat, Griffin seems to defy the
laws of friction and gravity at

ability to slide through almost
any tackle and his aggravating
talent for keeping his feet in a
crowd have earned him one

PETE JOHNSON, the full-
