The Michigan Dai

Fry has Iowa on the upswing

Third in a nine-part series
Editor's note: This is the third in
a nine-part series examining each of
Michigan's 1981 Big Ten opponen-
ts. The series was written by Daily
football reporters Mark Mihanovic,
Greg DeGulis, Buddy Moorehouse,
and Drew Sharp.
If there exists a mystery team in the
Big Ten for Michigan and its fans, it
would be the Iowa Haykeyes. Many
students at Michigan have never seen
the Hawkeyes, as the last meeting bet-
ween Michigan .and Iowa occurred in
1978. The Wolverines manhandled the
Hawkeyes, 31-0, in 1978, but many

positive changes are apparent in Iowa
After 1978, Hayden Fry seized control
of the Iowa football coaching job and
two first-division Big Ten finishes have
resulted. In 1979, the Hawkeyes finished

coach admits. The Hawkeyes return six
starters to ah offensive unit which mar-
ched up and down the field, but had
problems scoring. Two quarterbacks
will share the duties, senior Pete Gales
(6-3, 175) and Gordy Bohannon (6-2,

slot. Phillips was the leading Hawkeye
rusher and scored the lone Iowa touch-
down. J.C. Love-Jordan (that's right)
(5-11, 180, So.) and Marty Ball (6-1, 205,
Sr.) provide the depth at running back.:
The Hawkeyes passed effectively in
1980 and a productive spring this year
heightens hopes for another wide-open
offense. Five returning letterman will
battle forthe receiver positions with
Ivory Webb (6-0, 187, Sr.), Lon Olejnic-
zak (6-3, 204, Jr.) and Mike Hufford (6-
3, 235, Jr.) as the favorites to win the
receiver race.
DEFENSIVELY, the Hawkeyes
played well against the weaker op-
ponents, but the football giants reaked
havoc on the Hawkeyes in 1980. Iowa let
up 238 points last year, but 156 of them
were courtesy of Nebraska, Purdue,
and Ohio State. Last week, the
Hawkeyes reversed the trend by
allowing only seven points against the
mighty Cornhuskers of Nebraska.
"We should have a sound number one
unit and good strengths at some of the
backup positions," Fry says. Eight
starters return in addition to the entire
second team, so depth should not be a
problem for the Hawkeyes. The defense
boasts of seven three-year lettermen
All-Big Ten candidates Pat Dean (6-2,
250, Sr.) at nosegard and Todd Simon-
sen (6-3, 235, Sr.) at linebacker.


Hilarious and cutting. Raucous and gentle. A
book of contrasts. Going To Extremes.
Joe McGinniss, author of The Selling Of The
President, 1968, reports it unblinkingly. From
the bored, cocaine-sniffing politicians, to the
fast-buck artists, to the booze-guzzling
housewives playing with adultery.
And the still untamed grandeur of the land.
Where it can be paradise at 60 below or a
nightmare that's cold as hell.

American dream.

"This isn't the case of having two

are small-timers," The. Zipper said. "They think they can,
make a lot of money just because they sell a few. These
guys don't have any street sense."
THE ZIPPER should know. For nineteen years he has
been selling tickets above cost for sporting events which
range from Wolverine games to Wimbledon, and he claims
to be, far and away, the best in the business.
"The other scalpers call me all the time and ask me what
they should do," he boasted.
The Zipper, who claims that he was the first scalper ever
to sell tickets in front of the Union; is upset at the growing
number of scalpers, which he feels led to a recently-passed
city ordinance prohibiting peddling in certain areas.
"PEOPLE GOT arrested last year," he said. "The police
are really going to start busting people."
The Zipper and Mrozinski both said they have never had
trouble with the police. According to the Ann Arbor detec-
tive's office, the only security measure taken is the
placement of a few plainclothesmen in front of Michigan
Stadium gate a few hours before the game.
"We do check all stolen tickets." said Klinge. warning

ticket-buyers to be sure they know the person selling them a
ticket. But he added that no stepped-up effort to prevent the
scalping of tickets was planned for the near future.
THE UNIVERSITY security force lets the Ann Arbor
police handle the situation. "We don't do anything about
it," said Athletic Director Don Canham. "We don't have
any mechanism for it. The police have never asked us for
Although the police do not appear to be enforcing the law
strictly, The Zipper believes they do a respectable job.
Mrozinski also warns, "Scalping is a very high-risk
So what's the secret?
"I try very hard not to screw up," said The Zipper. "But
it ain't what you think it is, it ain't no bowl of cherries," ad-
ding "Some scalpers are going to end up in jail."
Until then, The Zipper, Mrozinski and a handful of others
will be laughing all the way to the bank.
