The Famous Five-It appears that the dust has temporarily cleared on
the suspensions issue, but one can't help but berate the entire cast of charac-
ters, each of whom delivered poor performances during this entire scenario.
There's Don Canham, who insisted that the five players would never
again play football at Michigan (Will Perry contradicted him two days
later). There's the Detroit-area media, which filled its reports with idle
speculation, and relied on the Daily for most of its factual information. And
there's the players themselves, who denied having any involvement with
B.J. Dickey, speaking for himself and his four cohorts, said, "We don't
smoke marijuana, and we don't use cocaine." If these players weren't
suspended for drug-related violations of a training rule, then why were they
suspended? If the suspensions were not, in fact, drug-related, then why can't
Bo Schembechler inform the media of this gross inaccuracy, and save his
players from any further embarrassments
If you managed to glance at the front page of the Detroit Free Press last
Thursday and Friday, you undoubtedly noticed the way in which this story
was played on the page. Friday also marked the day on which the Pinto trial
story, which received a tremendous amount of local attention, appeared on
the front page. That story was given a small amount of play right below the
logo. It seems ridiculous that a newspaper should spend four months inten-
sely scrutinizing the activities surrounding a unique case in legal history,
only to squish it against the ceiling of Page One. The headline used for the
football story, as well as its placement, is normally reserved for stories of
unmitigating significance. While the suspensions were clearly a major issue
in this area, affairs in Winamac, Indiana, Tehran, and Washington seem
more urgent to the metropolitan Detroit populace.
Cager Capers-It is now common knowledge that center John Garris is
fairly set on leaving the Michigan basketball team. Garris is allegedly
unhappy about the little playing time he has received during his first two
seasons, and wary of the arrival this fall of 7-2 Canadian Jon Antonides.
If you've followed Michigan basketball lately, you'll recognize that the
Wolverines, with Antonides backing up Paul Heuerman, will do just fine,
thank you. Garris seemed unable to fashion his inside game to the point
where coach Johnny Orr could feel confident enough to bring him off the
bench at any moment. The second battle with Michigan State on February 6
proved to be Garris' death knell; he saw limited action in the four final
regular season contests, and played in only one of the NIT games, that being
the quarterfinal matchup with Virginia.
While we're on the subject of dissatisfied basketball playes, look for
guard Keith Smith to jump the elverine ship for "greener pastures." Sour-
ces say the speedy sophomore is thinking of moving down the road to Yp-
silanti and Eastern Michigan, where he would be reunited with former
Michigan assistant Jim Boyce. If Smith decides to travel that route, he will
undoubtedly become one of the finest guards in the Mid-American Conferen-
ce. And once again, we find a neutralizing element within this whole
scheme-the possible signing by Orr of Derek Harper, a lightning-fast guard
from Palm Beach, Florida.
Tiger Teasing-It's that time of year again. From Lakeland, the annual
bubble of optimism has been released from the Tigers' training camp. We're
all being led to believe that yes, after eight long years of suffering, the
Bengals will "bring the pennant home, where it belongs."
The rehearsed response, please:
Those hot summer nights
Down at Michigan and Trumbull
The hot dogs, the cokes
That incessant rumble
Take heart, oh ye fans
And the season's warm embrace
Butthe call of reality
Says the Tigers got fifth place

IN PREPARATION for the two home
matches, Eisner elected a flexible line-
up with two alternating number one
singles and four freshmen.With the loss
of Big Ten singles champion Jeff Etter-
beek to graduation, the number one
singles spot opened up. Presently, that
space is shared by junior Matt Horwit-
ch and sophomore Michael Leach.
Eisner stated that "both players are of
equal strength and are among the top
twenty in the nation."
To compliment the powerful number

features four freshmen which comprise

With four freshmen in the lineup, the

Ali-A merican Eaves

Murray Eaves, the Wolverines' high-
flying sophomore center, was yester-
day named to the College All-American
hockey team. The team, consisting of
one goaltender, three defensemen and
four forwards, was selected by NCAA
officials and sportswriters.
Surprisingly, all eight members of
the All-American team came from
teams in the Western Collegiate Hockey
Association. There were no members
from the Eastern Coast Athletic Con-
ference or the Central Collegiate
Hockey Association.
Roy Schultz, of Wisconsin, was the
All-American goaltender. He has since
signed a pro contract and will not finish
his two years of eligibility. At defense,
Howard Walker of North Dakota, Dave
Feamster of Colorado and Theran
Welsh of Wisconsin were selected. In
addition to Eaves, the other forwards
selected were Mark Taylor of North
Dakota, Tim Harrer, the WCHA leading
scorer from Minnesota, and Greg

Meredith of Notre Dame.
THe WCHA All-Star team has yet to
be named, but judging from the All-
American selections, it appears that
there will be few surprises.
