HIGAN DAILY Page Eleven

By BILL CRANE
The Michigan Wolverine bats-
men (9-3) are perched in first
place in the Big Ten race going
into the season's last weekend,
but they shouldn't feel too con-
fident.
Yes, the Wolverines continued
their hot play on the road by
winning three out of four games
this weekend from Indiana and
Ohio State. But this 1975 sea-
son is the fifth campaign in a
row that Michigan will have a
chance to win or tie for the Big
Ten championship.
Michigan is due. The batsmen
have finished second place and
third place in the last four
years. Last year was particular-
ly frustrating. The Wolverines
were rained out of the final
two doubleheaders. Rained-out
games aren't rescheduled in the
league.
So, there really isn't a team
around more destined to win
a title-even if by odds alone.
(Certainly hockey's New York
Islanders haven't used up all
the available lucky bounces.)

Coach eyes champ'

Today, the Maize and Blue
take their magnificent road rec-
ord (12 wins in their last 13
a w a y contests) to Bowling
Green. Maybe this time the
Blue players will feel more at
home than they did when
Bowling Green visited Ann Ar-
bor earlier this season.
At Ray Fisher Stadium, the
BG's shut Michigan out 4-0 in
the first game of a twinbill and
the Wolverines' only saved them-
selves from being double-dipped
by outlasting the Greenies 5-4
in 10 innings in the nightcap.
Since then however, Mich-
igan has won 11 and dropped
but three. Perhaps the big
test for the Wolverine title
drive will be today's games in
Ohio.
Bowling Green won't see Mich-
igan's top pitchers of course,
