Boilermakers hurt by graduation

wf COL._...w. N

Eighth in a nine-part series
Editor's note. This is the eighth in
a nine-part series examining each of
Michigan's 1981 Big Ten opponen-
ts. The series was written by Daily
football writers Mark Mihanovic,
Greg DeGulis, Buddy Moorehouse,"
and Drew Sharp.
OK, Big Ten trivia buffs, which con-
ference team has posted the best.
overall mark over the past three years?
Michigan? Ohio State? Northwestern?
No, no, and no. The Purdue Boiler-
makers hold that distinction, as they
have complied a 23-7-1 mark over the,
past three season. Equally as im-
pressive, especially for a Big Ten team,
is the fact that the Boilermakers have
won three consecutive bowl games
(Peach, Blue-Bonnet, and Liberty)
}over than span.
THERE WAS EVEN serious talk the
last three years that Purdue was finally
ready to win a conference champion-
ship. But after a pair of All-Americans,
quarterback Mark Herrmann and
tight end Dave Young, took. their
diplomas and left West Lafayette along
with ten other starters from last year's
team, most of that talk has subsided.
The Boilermakers started 1981 with a
bang, however, downing highly-touted

audience, 27-19. But last week was a dif-
ferent story, as Minnesota upset coach
Jim Young's team, 16-13. Purdue faces
another tough test this Saturday, when
Notre Dame heads downstate to face
the Boilermakers.

pleased with him."
Campbell's leading receiver has been
flanker Steve Bryant, who has nine cat-
ches for 166 yards and two touchdowns
this year. The speedy senior from Los
Angles started all 12 games for the
Boilermakers last season, logging 892
yards on 50 catches.

the other guard spot, while Paul Royer
(6-3, 236) takes over the center position
and Jim Fritzsche (6-8, 254) the other
tackle spot, giving the Boilermakers a
huge front wall.
What was supposed to be a strong
spot for Purdue in 1981 has thus far tur-
ned out to be a dud. Senior kicker Rick
Anderson, who set a single-season,
mark for field goals last year with 15,
was expected to give the Boilermakers
one of the top kicking games in the
country. But against Minnesota last
week, Anderson missed two extra poin-
ts and two field goals. Despite this,
Young is confident that Anderson will
return to his 1980 form. "He's an ex-
perienced kicker, and I'm sure he'll
come around," said Young, a former
assistant to Michigan coach Bo Schem-
The strength of the defende for Pur-
due is the secondary, starring strong
safety Tim Seneff (6-2, 210 and free
safety Marcus McKinnie (6-1, 192).
McKinnie finished second on the team
last year with 116 total tackles, while
Seneff finished with 97.
The Wolverines will travel to West
Lafayette on November 14 to face the
unpredictable Boilermakers. The last
time Michigan visited Purdue, in 1979,
the Boilers came away with a 24-21 win.
Scheibechler is no doubt hoping that
the Boilermakers don't once again
become the "Spoilermakers."

Fuller Field gets
new look, name

Like most other universities,
Michigan remembers its athletic
pioneers by naming stadiums,
buildings, and fields after them.
There's Crisler Arena, named for foot-
ball coaching great Fritz Crisler, Yost
Ice Arena, bearing the name of gridiron
coach Fielding H. Yost, and Elbel field,
named after Louis Elbel, the man who
gave us "Hail To the Victors." And you
can bet that a man named Bo will some
day have something named after him.
Up until now though, one man who
has done a lot for Michigan athletics,
has been overlooked: Not any more.
AT A SPECIAL ceremony tomorrow,

Fuller Athletic Field, located on Fuller
road on the way to North Campus, will
officially become Mitchell Field, in
honor of Dr. Elmer Mitchell.
"Elmer Mitchell was the father of in-
tramural sports in the U.S.," said Dr.
Michael Stevenson, Director for
Recreational Sports. "We felt that it
would be appropriate to recognize this
man in some way at the institution
where he did so much for recreational
"Mitchell Field is probably the
premier sports field of its kind in the
country, or at least as good as any I've
ever seen," said Stevenson. "And with
the recent renovations, the quality of

the field has been improved even
THE improvements, which have been
taking place over the last two years, in-
clude the renovation of six crushed
limestone infields for softball with new
backstops, a new service facility with
bathrooms, offices, and storage room
for equipment as well as maintenance
machinery: In addition, the field was
re-sodded. Lights will be added and
should be ready for use sometime in
November, according to Stevenson.
Along with these improvements, Mit-
chell Field also has 11 football fields,
three soccer fields, and two rugby
fields. Three of the football fields and
two of the softball diamonds will be
useable for nighttime events once the
lights are installed.
At a time when the university is cut-
ting everyone's budget, it is interesting
to note that the improvements for Mit-
chell Field have continued. Where has
all the money come from?
"THE FIRST renovation project, the
improvement of the actual playing
fields, took place two years ago and
cost $150,000," said Stevenson. "Half of
that money came from general univer-
sity funds and the other half came from
recreational sports-generated funds.
The service facility ($125,000) and the
lights ($175,000) were funded entirely
by recreational sports-generated fun-
The man for whom the field will be
named, Dr. Elmer Mitchell, 91,
graduated from Michigan in 1912,
received his M.A. degree in 1919 and his
Ph.D. 1938. He was Michigan's first
basketball coach, from 1917-1919,
Director of Intramural sports from
1919-1943, and Chairman of the Physical
Education Department from 1942-1958.
One of Mitchell's greatest con-
tributions to the university came while
he was the Director of Intramural spor-
ts in the 1920's when he headed the.
planning of the Intramural Building on
Hoover street. The building, which was

completed in 1928 at a cost of $743,000, is
still regarded as a model intramural
sports complex and continues to thrive
today, a testament to Mitchell's
The dedication ceremony is
scheduled for 2:00 p.m. tomorrow at
Mitchell Field. In case of rain, the
ceremony will be held at the North
Campus Recreational Building ,at the
same time.
