Cats to try wide-open ofense

Sixth in a nine-part series
Editor's note. This is the sixth in a
nine-part series examing 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.
Northwestern football- just men-
tioning the two words together is
enough to evoke laughter in anyone.
The Evanston campus is usually filled
with students making quips about its
team's futility. "Close only counts in
hand grenades and Northwestern foot-
ball" or "Well, somebody has got to
lose" are the usual remarks made con-
cerning the inept Wildcats.
Not only has Northwestern been a
familiar tenant in the Big Ten
basement, but they have not won a
football game since defeating Wyoming
in 1979.
BUT WITH the entrance of new coach
Dennis Green and his wide-open offen-
sive philosophy, there is optimism that
Northwestern will finally put
something in the win column this
season other than a goose egg.
The Wildcats were a dropped pass
away from beating Indiana in the

season opener. Near the end of the
game, Northwestern missed a two-
point conversion, and along with it, the
chance to end its 18-game losing skid.
The 21-20 defeat to the Hoosiers was
heartbreaking, but it did open the eyes
of optimists.
Last week's 38-7 throttling at the han-
ds of Arkansas, however, resembled

going to try to be very innovative in our
offensive and defensive formations.
"Obviously, the Big Ten is a defen-
sive conference, and against the run
they're like no other conference in the
country. That doesn't sound very in-
viting to me to try and overpower them
and run over them. I feel the best thing
for us to do is to come in with a passing.

"We're looking for Mike to have an
outstanding year,' added Green. "He's
worked hard to learn our system and
we feel he will develop into one of the
top passers in the country. He is well on
his way to breaking every school
passing record."
Last season, Kerrigan set six school
offensive records. He established the
season mark for most pass attempts
(377), most pass completions (173),
most yards passing (1.816), and most
yards in total offense (1,789). He holds
the single game record for pass attem-
pts (47 versus Purdue) and most pass
completions (26 against Syracuse).
KERRIGAN LOST his main target,
wide receiver Todd Sheets, to
graduation. Sophomore Todd Jenkins
will be counted on to receive most of
Kerrigan's aerials. The running corps
will remain intact with Jeff Cohn and
Ricky Edwards sharing the tailback
duties with Jim Stone occupying the
fullback slot.
Defensively, the Wildcats look to free
safety Bobby Anderson for leadership.
Anderson led the team in tackles with
71 last season. Because of that, Green
wants Anderson to play an even more
active role in the Northwestern defen-
"I would love to see Bobby Anderson
lead the team in tackles again this
season," Green noted. "But I would like
those tackles to be three yards in front
or three yards behind the line. If we get
a better all-arolznd defensive perfor-
mance, I cannot see why we couldn't
have a respectable season."

Club Sports Roundup
In an extremely close contest, the Michigan undergraduate soccer club
defeated the Wayne State Tartars 2-1 Saturday.
The only score of the first half occured when the Wolverine's Bruce David-
son beat the Wayne State goalie on a penalty kick. Michigan increased its
lead in the second half when Davidson struck again, this time on a header off
an Eric Freeberg crossing pass.
Wayne State cut Michigan's lead in half later in the second stanza, but
could not score again despite controlling the action during the latter part of
the contest.
"The momentum changed quite a bit towards the end,' said Davidson.
"They were putting on quite a bit of pressure. So the score was indicative of
how close the game was."
The undergraduate soccer club's next match will be against the Michigan
graduate club this Saturday at Mitchell Field. The contest will begin at 11:00
a. m.
Behind a very balanced attack, the Michigan rugby 'A' team breezed to a
27-3 victory over Flint Sunday. Seven players scored for Michigan, with none
doing so more than once.
David Weber, Brian Van Deusen, Lane Bertrand, Peter Maglocci, John
Hartman and Dick Dowe each scored a try (comparable to a touchdown in
football, but worth only four points). The Wolverines' other three points
came on a Don Hoch penalty goal.
"It was never in doubt," said Weber. "It-was ourfirst game of the season
and it was just a matter of everyone getting used to playing together. I think
we could have scored another 12 to 15 points, but it wasn't a bad start."
The 'A' team's next contest will be this Saturday at Elbel Field against the
Southside Irish from Chicago. The match will start at 2:00.
Also in action on Saturday was the Wolverines''B' team which defeated its
counterpart from Flint 18-0.
While the Michigan football team was roughing up Notre Dame 25-7 on
Saturday, another Wolverine contingent was thrashing a Fighting Irish
squad. he Michigan water polo team handily won 14-7 as they battered the
Notre Dame squad both on the scoreboard and in the water.
"We were winning 7-2 in the first quarter," said the,Wolverines' Russ
Berger. "But they said we were playing too rough for them and they were
going back to Notre Dame. So we played less rough, and it wasn't until later
in the game that we were able to let up some and still score goals."
When the Wolverines let up, the Fighting Irish were able to get back into
the game. They cut Michigan's five goal margin to two at the half, 8-6. But in
the second half Notre Dame could only muster one goal to the Wolverine's
Michigan's leading scorer was Bill Eagan with five goals. Russ Berger
and Lance Weissman each added three goals. The water polo club's next
contest will be October 2 at Ohio State.
The Club Sports Roundup relates briefly the activities of the Michigan
club sports during the previous week. This week's information was
compiled by Daily sportswriter Ron Pollack.

a first-round choice in a supplementary
Entering Sunday's game in the fourth
quarter, with the New York Giants
ahead 20-0, Wilson hit on 11 of 23 pass
attempts for 154 yards. He was 5-8 for 70
yardsas the Saints drove 72 yards for
their only touchdown.
In addition, two passes that almost
certainly would have gone for touch-
downs were dropped on the Saints' next
Wilson relieved veteran backup Bob-
by Scott, who was playing in place of
the injured Archie Manning. Scott was
5-15 for 61 yards in three quarters of
Phillips said Manning would practice
with the team this week, heavily ban-
daged to protect a pulled hamstring
Basic Class
Two years of testing have pro-
duced a new course in making music.
This course is based on an amazing
breakthrough in piano instruc-
tion, and it is intended for people
who can at least read and play a
simple melody line of notes.
This new technique teaches you to
unlock your natural ability to make
music. You will learn how to take any
melody and play it a variety of ways:
rock, folk, swing, jazz, semi-classi-
cal, bolero . . . you name it..
just for the sheer joy of it! By the end
of this 8-lesson course, -you will know
how to arrange and enrich a song so
that you won't need sheet music or
memorization. How well you play
depends upon how much you prac-
tice, of course.
Come and experience this revolu-
tionary new way of bringing adults
back to the piano.

only the first series of the Saints' vic-
tory over the Los Angeles Rams on
Sept. 13.
The coach said that if Manning is still
to hobbled by his injury, Wilson will
draw the start Sunday at San Fran-s
He said Manning and Wilson will share
practice time ,this week, and the
decision on who will start will be made
jsut before game time.
"I wasn't surprised at the way he
threw," Phillips said of Wilson's per-
formance. "He's thrown the ball well
all year.
"But I didn't know how he would
react in a game. There are a lot of
people walking the streets who can
throw well, but not in a game."
He said that since Wilson entered a
game that was already pretty much
decided, he didn't face the blitzes and
tight coverage that Scott was called to
throw against," he said.
He said rookie cornerback Johnny
Poe can almost definitely be ruled out
fo the San Francisco game with a knee
injury. Reserve guard-tackle Dave
Lafary and wide receiver Ike Harris
wree both listed as questionable with
ankle and knee injuries.
Rookie strong safety Russell Gary
and veteran guard Sam Adams should
be back in action for San Francisco, he

Continuation Class
For those who have completed the
basic class and want a "refresher"
course to review techniques, assess
progress and learn new concepts.

provisation, harmonization, new
styles of chording and musical inter-
pretation, participants will continue
