Michigan inks top matmen

By CLARKE COGSDILL
No other national wrestling
power suffered s u c h severe
losses through graduation as the
University of Michigan.
F o u r All - Americans -- Bill
Davids, Jerry Hubbard, Rob
Huizenga and Gary Ernst-and
valuable veteran Rick Neff hit
the road after Jerry Ford's
Commencement address, leav-
ing departing head coach Rick
Bay and his assistant, pill
Johannesen, with a formidable
recruiting task.
"We had a banner year," an
unusually-jovial Bay reflected.
"Give most of the credit to
Billy Jo. About the only thing
I did to help," he added faceti-
ously, "was to resign."
"YEAH, I think we did really
well for ourselves," Johannesen
concurred. "Whoever takes over
the team next year (Note: Jo-
hannesen is the leading candi-
date) is going to find himself
in pretty good shape. We should
be well up in the top twenty for
sure."
Recruiting for a non-revenue
sport such as wrestling happens
along two dimensions. This year
-as in previous years-Bay and
Johannesen received one in-
state and two out-state tenders
to work with, and could have
used more.
Therefore, a large part of
wrestling recruiting consists of
talking to good high-school grap-
plers and convincing them to
attend the University on their
own, and to come out for the
team on a walk-on basis. Cur-
rent Big Ten 190-pound champ
and team captain Dave Curby
is an example of what good re-
cruiting can obtain along this
route.
The two out-state tenders went
to a pair of highly-regarded
scrappers from Long Island.
Richard Lubell, who can com-
pete at either 226 or 134
pounds, was the only undefeat-
ed high school wrestler on the
island last year, and Mitchell
Marsicano, a transfer - student
who was runner up in the re-
cently-completed National Jun-
ior College championships at
heavyweight, has been
described by those whove seen
him as potentially as good as
1974 NCAA heavyweight runner-
up Gary Ernst.
The wrestling mentors haven't
yet decided how they'll use
their one in-state tender, but
part of it has been definitely

set aside for Todd Schneider,
this year's 105-pound Michigan
Class A State champion, who
comes from W a l l e d Lake
Central.
GREG HAYNES from Warren-
Mott, who placed second at that
weight to Schneider, will also
be coming here, but without
Athletic Department support.
Slated to receive partial ten-
ders as they become available
are Karl Briggs, a 132-pound
state champ from Bay City
West, and Mark Yerrick, 1SS-
pound state champ from Grand-
ville.
Bill Dufek, better known for
his football profess, also became
Michigan Class B State champ-
ion at heavyweight during his
high school career, and has in-
dicated he'd like to spend some
time on the mats after Bo gets
through with him. His potential

can be modestly described as
unlimited.
JACK GARDNER, who was
undefeated at Farmington High
before he suffered a knee in-
jury, and Fred Boss, a two-time
150-pound M i c h i g a n State
champion from Addison, have
both committed themselves to
enter the Big U and try out for
the team on their own.
"Iowa's gonna be the confer-
ence favorite next year," Johan-
nesen muses, "because they lost
only one guy (Jan Sanderson)
and they've picked up a few
more blue-chip East Coast kids
this year. But we're gonna be
close. Right now, I think next
year could very well be the
fifth year in a row that the
Michigan-Iowa meet won't. be
decided till the heavyweight
match."

Wayne Maki dies

'M' ten picks a pair
With their 3-1, 3-0 sweep of Ohio State Sunday, the Michigan
Wolverines kept alive their annual slim hopes for the Big Ten
baseball championship. With one weekend left to play, the men
of Moby Bennedict trail co-leaders Minnesota and Iowa by two
games, but only one in the all important loss column.
As usual it was superlative pitching that pulled the diamond-
ers through. Craig Forhan knotted his record at three apiece by
limiting the Buckeyes to just four hits. In the nightcap, freshman
Larry Sorenson twirled a seven hitter for his shutout and earned
his first victory in two months.
Michigan bats didn't exactly resound, producing four and six
hits respectively. But aggressive baserunning and key safeties
got the job done.
Dick Walterhouse walked in the first frame of the opener,
took second on an attempted pickoff that went awry and scored
on Chris Burak's solid single to center. Burack tallied on Greg
Buss' double. In the sixth, the Wolverines added a run on Mike
DeCou's single, Pete Ross' sacrifice and a wild pitch and a
Buckeye fielding miscue. Second game runs were racked up by
Lonchar, Ross and Grenkoski.
The Wolverines conclude their 1974 home stand with a twin-
bill versus the Central Michigan Chippewas today. Game time at
Fisher Field is 2 p.m.
'M' team tennis: Nine-love
YPSILANTI-Nobody was worried, least of the fans of Mich-
igan tennis. The guess was right. The Wolverines outlasted, if
that's the word, Eastern Michigan by a 9-0 count in a tennis match
here yesterday.
Miami feud: Expletives!
MIAMI-If the jumping of Dolphin stars Larry Csonka, Paul
Warfield and Jim Klick weren't enough, the city's NFL story has
a new problem-the owner and head coach won't speak to each
other. Owner Joe Robbie and head coach Don Shula went at it
hot and heavy at the team's banquet April 26 and haven't spoken
since then,
Apparently angry that Shula was late, Robbie yelled, "We've
got 1,000 people waiting on you. Let's get up here!" To which
the volatile Shula replied, "Don't ever yell at me in public again,
or I'll knock you on your expletive deleted." There has been no
reconciliation.

NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C.-
Wayne Maki, younger brother of
Chicago Black Hawk forward
Chico Maki, and remembered
for one of hockey's most fright-
ening stick-swinging episodes,
is dead at the age of 29.
Maki died Sunday, 18 months
after he was forced to retire
from hockey because of a brain
tumor.
He played parts of several
National Hockey League seasons
with Chicago, St. Louis and
Vancouver, enjoying his best
success in 1970-71, when he
scored 25 goals, and 1971-72,
when he had 22, for Vancouver.
He is best remembered, how-
ever, for his part in the stick-
swinging duel with defenseman
Ted Green during an exhibition
game in Ottawa on Sept. 20,

1969. Maki was with St. Louis
and Green with the Boston
Bruins at the time.
The two players had tangled
behind the Boston net and then
began swinging their sticks as
play moved up ice. Green suf-
fered a fractured skull and un-
derwent several operations to
relieve pressure on his brain,
Both Maki and Green received
long suspensions for the duel
and both faced criminal charges
of which they were acquitted.
At theatime ofthe incident,
Green was regarded one of the
top defensemen in the NHL. He
missed the entire 1969-70 seasons
and later was one of the first
players to jump from the NHL
to the World Hockey Associa-
tion. He now plays for the New
England Whalers.
Maki never made it with St.
Louis and was drafted by the
Vancouver club in 1970. He be-
came one of the expansion
team's top scorers with 47 goals
in two seasons.
But he complained of head-
aches in November, 1972, and
was sent home from i road trip
for a medical examination. He
entered a hospital where the
brain tumor was discovered,
ending his hockey career.
He is survived by his widow
and two children.
