Stabler, despite an erratic evening,. connected repeat-

Banaszak's one-yard burst in the third quarter. Both
capped drives of less than 50 yards.

way I can

Well, I think it is safe to say that Amo, who has been
coaching in the WCHA for 28 years, is just slightly predujiced
owards college hockey. But the weekend series between his
team and Dan Farrel's; Michigan Wolverines seemed to
support Besson's theories. State's 6-4 victory on Friday and
Michigan's 8-4 revenge win on Saturday were both exciting
games. Very exciting.
And Amo Bessone turned out to be anything but the genial
umorist his Friday performance made him out to be. Bessone
no gentleman on the ice-he is a street fighter. "He'll beat
u anyway he can," said Farrell. "He can intimidate the refs
e a Bo Schembechler or a Woody Hayes. Sometimes it seems
ey just look the other way when Amo appears to be doing
mething against the rules."
Despite Bessone's somewhat siady tactics, Michigan State
played some obvious weaknesses during the series. They are
all, and don't play a very physical game. As a result a player
e Angie Moretto can position himself in the slot and use his
perior size to keep himself there. If no one checks Moretto
front of the goal, he is very effective. ~
uperior conditioning a plits
Michigan's superior conditioning also hurt the Spartans,
peially in Saturday's game. Farrell's program to get his team
good shape physically seems to be paying off. In the third
rinod his Wolverines were simply skating past the Spartans-
1 this despite a very long game on Friday and two hard
iods on Saturday.
But what the Spartans lack more than anything else is depth.
Tom Ross and Steve Colp they have the best two man team
college hockey. But Michigan's one-two center punch of
ortto and Dave Debol is gaing strength all the time. Add a
pporting cast that includes Pat Hughes who lived up to his
ling as a speed skater this weekend, Kris Manery Doug Lind-
og Ben Kawa and Kip Maurer-the sum is a solid three line
b.'
Debol's performance against State was particularly ex-
citing. Time and time again the sophomore walk-on dazzled
the crowd with breathtaking displays of skating and stick-
andling. He turned one on two breaks into scoring threats.
When he scored a goal in the third period on Saturday, beating
oth defensemen single-handedly, it was more an inevitability
than a surprise.
Farrell believes thatihis charges should actually have won
th games. "The officiating definitely hurt us. The refs seem to
overly cautious in Michigan - Michigan State games. They
e too worried about keeping things under control."
Indeed, of the 34 penalties that the officials called, half were
led after minor scuffles. Many of the calls were questionable,
ainly because the same type of penalties were not called in
ilar situations against other teams.
But it must be pointed out that there were no accusations of
rtianship. There were fifteen penalties called against the
artans and nineteen against Michigan. Each team received
e ten minute misconduct penalty. When the near fights broke
t, a simultaneous penalty was usually the result.
Because of the relative strength of the two team's power
ays, however, the penalties hurt Michigan much more than
ate. "The Michigan State power play is unrivalled," noted
trrell. "It won the game for them on Friday."
Michigan's power play, on the other hand, is a weak link in
eir overall picture. As Farrell points out "We just don't get
f enough good shots. We'll have to work hard on it."
Despite this desparity, Michigan managed to score the cru-
il typing goal on a power play Saturday night. They also
4ited State to one power play goal, at one time even over
ming a two man deficit for almost a minute.
Farrell predicts that State's -- _- - -
ower play will be less effe- t
ive as the year goes on.
'The offense is always better
hn the defense at the begin-
ing of the season," he com-
nented. "But the defense will
:atch up as time goes on. By
February the good teams will
