Michigan's wounded recover quickly

By MARK MIHANOVIC
"Carter should be ready to play." Those words, from the
mouth of Bo Schembechler, should lay to rest the anxieties of
Michigan football fans who saw wide receiver Anthony Car-
ter hobble off the field with a sprained ankle in the second
quarter of Saturday's 21-16 Wolverine victory over Navy.
At his weekly Weber's Inn press luncheon yesterday,
Schembechler said that Carter along with fullback Stanely
Edwards, defensive tackle Winfred Carraway, and guard
Stefan Humphries, will probably be ready for action this
weekend when the Wolverines travel to Bloomington'to take
on Indiana. But the status of defensive back Brian Carpenter,
who sprained his left ankle against Navy, is "uncertain" for
the Indiana contest, according to Schembechler.
EDWARDS (HIP pointer) and Carraway (two sprained
ankgles) both sat out the entire Navy game, while Humphries
suffered strained ligaments in his right knee during the con-
test.
Unfortunately for Schembechler, he is not in a position to
save any of his walking wounded for bigger games, because
after an opening Big Ten loss to Wisconsin, the Wolverines
are now basically in a must-win situation the rest of the way. -
"Our task now is rather plain," explained Schembechler.
"We simply have put ourselves into a position where we can-
not lose another game this season if we honestly hope to
return to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl.

Carter-to play
against Hoosiers
"IF WE LOSE again, we're out of it," said the man whose
teams have compiled an 83-11-1 record against Big Ten op-
ponents in 12 years. "That is a great deal of pressure to play
under each and every week, but we have nobody to blame but
ourselves.",
Bo remained perturbed by the lackluster play of his squad
versus Navy, although his anger had subsided a mite from its
level on Saturday.
"We're not playing with intensity and concentration," he
said. "It's been a result of the tremendous media build-up at
the beginning of the season.
"THIS IS A typical Michigan team, typically talented, no
more and no less. We've won in the past because we've been a
very intense football team. They're not playing like that.
"We expect more out of our group than what we've got-
ten," Bo continued. "What we consider problems at
Michigan are normal things at other places. We've got no
problems . . we've got good people,, they've just gotta play
better."

The Wolverines begin tackling the rest of their Big Ten op-
position this weekend. Indiana is 1-2 on the year after nipping
Northwestern in its opener, 21-20, then losing to Southern
California, 21-0, and Syracuse, 21-7. Schembechler was par-
ticularly impressed by the fact that the Hoosiers held USC
scoreless until late in the third period of that contest.
"I THINK THAT speaks very highly of their abilities," Bo
said. "Indiana's got the potential to be a good team. Indiana
is 1-0 in the conference, and we're 0-1."
Hoosier mentor Lee Corso whistled a different tune, citing
his team's inability to put points on the scoreboard. "We lost
90 percent of our running game and 85 percent of our passing
game," Corso said yesterday in a phone interview from
Bloomington. "So far we have not been able to run the ball,
and there's a direct correlation between that and not being
able to score."
The graduation of standout quarterback Tim Clifford and
the tailback tandem of Lonnie Johnson (1,075 yards in 1980)
and Mike Harkrader (567) certainly explains some of the
falloff.
Corso indicated that there would not be any major changes
in the Hoosier game plan in light of his 0-6 record against the
Maize and Blue. "We're gonna do the same things, only we're
going to try to do them better," Corso said. "If you try to
trick these guys, it's ridiculous. We're gonna coach a solid,
tough, hard-nosed football game."

"ENERGY POLICY IN AFRICA:

Speaker: PROF. ERNEST J. WILSON,,

at the INTERNATIONAL CENTER,
603 E. Madison Street

By SARAH SHERBER
The Michigan women's cross country team finished
first out of 21 teams at last weekend's Springbank In-
vitational meet in London, Ontario.
Melanie Weaver paced the Wolverines, finishing
third out of 168 participants. Sue Frederick was the
second Wolverine across the finish line, coming in
seventh with a time of 24:27 for the 4.2 mile course.
She was followed in eighth place by Lisa Larsen, who
finished with a time of 24:53.
Rounding out the top five finishers for the Michigan
thinclads were freshman Judy Yuhn, who finished
tenth, and Linn Fudala, who crossed the tape 13th.
The women runners have their next meet on Oc-
tober 10, when they compete in the Western Michigan
Invitational at Kalamazoo.
Men harriers second
The Michigan men's cross country team had its
season debut on Sunday when they finished second in

rriers wn
the Springbank Invitational meet. The Wolverines
totalled a team score of 30 points, five over the first-
place Track West Club from London, Ontario.
Michigan's leading finisher was Bill O'Reilly, who
finished third with a time of 20:09. Next for the
Wolverines was Dan Beck, who came in 12th in the
meet, clocking 20:40 for the course. He was followed
closely byJim Schmidt, who finished in the 15th spot.
THE NEXT TWO thinclads to cross the finish line.
for Michigan were Gerard Donakowski and Steve
Brandt, who finished 17th and 21st, respectively.
The future still holds some uncertainties for the
cross country team. "It's a kind of young team with
no real super stars,"' said coach Ron Warhurst. "I
think we're going tb be competitive in the Big Ten."
The squad.will see its first conference competition
when it runs in the Notre Dame Invitational this
Friday. -SARAH SHERBER
Women golfers seventht
The Michigan women's golf team travelled to the

nvitationall
Michigan State Invitational with high hopes this
weekend, but rode back with disappointment.
The Wolverines shot a team score of 986 in the two-
day tournament, placing them seventh among the
eight squads competing.
THE HOST Spartans took first place honors, as
their green squad combined for a tally of 910. Close
behind the winners were second-place Kent State
(914) and third-place Marshall (915). Only Ferris
State's whopping total of 1008 was. behind the
Wolverine mark.
In the individual competition, Michigan's top
finisher was senior Karyn Colbert. Colbert's two-day
total of 238 put her in a tie for 16th place. Finishing
behind her were teammates Linda Drillock (241) and
Elaine Satyshur (249).
The Wolverines hope to turn things around next
weekend when they travel to West Lafayette for the
Purdue Invitational Tournament.-CHRIS WILSON

STUDENT HEALTH Q. & A.
QUESTION: 'm one of those students who almost
never get sick. Since I have to pay the University
Health Service fee anyway, what can UHS offer me?
ANSWER: First, don't write us off before checking
out the expanded and improved services at UHS this
year; we may have more than you realize in the
areas of prevention and health promotion. And
most services are free! UHS also sponsors recrea-
tional activities that all students can take advan-
tage of. For example, the "RUN FOR THE HEALTH OF
IT" is coming up on Saturday, October 10, to cele-
barate National Joggers' Day. Check-in time for
this 5-km. (3.1 mile) run through the Nichols Arbor-
etum is 8:30-9:15 a.m. at Markley Hall; the Run
begins at 9:30 a.m. from Washington Heights (be-
tween Markley and the School of Public Health).

It was not only a tough week, for the
Wolverine gridders, who lost numerous
starters due to injury in the Navy bat-
tle, but it was also a painful weekend
for Ann Arbor's pigskin
prognosticators. Keith Bronson of Hill
Street picked only 14 correctly, but that
was enough to capture this week's title.
