Fans gather to bid
final farewell to Ufer*

(Continued from Page 1),
of the late broadcaster. He outlined
several reasons why Ufer was attracted
to football. "Because he believed in
Michigan . . . because he was a com-
petitor . . . because of discipline .. .
because of motivation ... and because
of loyalty."
"No man I knew demonstrated more
courage in the last two years than Bob
Ufer," Schembechler continued. "No
Michigan player was ever criticized by
Bob Ufer . . . I just want to thank the
Lord that he was at Michigan while I
was at Michigan."
After the speakers finished, the house
lights dimmed and a videotape of
Ufer's stirring pep rally before the 1981
Rose Bowl began. The crowd was

treated to vintage Ufer in one of his
most famous spiels spurring on
Michigan players and supporters last
THE TAPE also included highlights
of the halftime tribute for the broad-
caster on Oct. 17, the last game Ufer
announced. The tape concluded and the
Michigan Band immediately blasted in-
to "The Victors," one of Ufer's requests
for the memorial service. "The Yellow
and Blue" followed, and then Smith
delivered a benediction. "Notre. Dame
has the 'Win one for the Gipper,'"
Smith said. "Well, I think the Gipper
has just met his match." And with that,
the friends of Bob Ufer quietly filed out
of Crisler Arena.

Halloween is here, and one of the hot
ter costume items seems to be a rubber
mask bearing the mug of Howard
Cosell, toule included. So what would
you do if a little Howard rang your
doorbell and said, "Trick or treat"?
You would interrupt his candy-collec-
ting and stand at the door and compare
your Gridde picks, of course. Well, why
waste your Gridde picks on a fake
Howard Cosell? Submit your Gridde

picks to the Daily (420 Maynard) before

THE BATTLE for the Little Brown 0

Minnesota and Michigan, both trying to

currently share a 3-2 conference mark

Special to the Daily
MINNEAPOLIS- Last year at this
time, Mike Hohensee was busy doing
just what he is doing now-thrilling
college football fans with hispassing
skill. The only difference is that last
year he was calling the signals for Mt.
San Antonio.Junior College in Califor-
nia and performing before crowds of a
couple of thousand people.
This season, however, Hohensee is
the starting quarterback for the Min-
nesota Gophers and plies his trade in
front of gatherings of 65,000 or more.
That is how many figure to be on hand
tomorrow when Michigan visits Min-
nesota in a game pitting two teams with
identical 5-2 (3-2, in the Big Ten) recor-
"ONE OFithe biggest differences
here is the size of the crowds," said
Hohensee, a native of Rowland Heights,
Cal. "Before this year,'I never played
before more than 4,000 people It's fun-,
ny, but I'm actually more relaxed
playing in front of big crowds."
It has quickly become evident that
Hohensee's play is not adversely affec-
ted by large crowds. The starter for all
seven of Minnesota's outings this
season, Hohensee has completed 85 of

174 tosses for 1,230 yards and 10 touch-
downs. Against the Wolverines
tomorrow, he will be testing a defensive
secondary that has allowed 1,325 yards
through the air thus far in 1981, in-
cluding six touchdowns.
"I've never played against Michigan
before, but I have seen a lot of films of
them," said Hohensee. "We do know
quite a bitabout them."
THE 6-1, 190-POUND junior joined
the Gophers in time for last spring's
workouts and eventually edged out Tim
Salem, Minnesota coach Joe Salem's
son and the Gophers' starter in '80 for
the number one spot. "I thought I had a
pretty good chance to start when I
came here," said Hohensee. "But they
didn't make me the starter until the
week before the Ohio U. game (Min-
nesota's season opener)."
As the signal-caller for two years at
Mt. San Antonio, Hohensee threw for an
impressive 3,687 yards. But despite the
fact that he earned All-State and All-
American junior college honors,
Hohensee said, "Minnesota is really the
only school that recruited me. I knew
they had a good, veteran offensive line,
and that helped me decide to come
Hohensee, dubbed "The Throwin'

... New dimension for Minnesota


shocker over Michigan and a trip to the
Hall of Fame Bowl. Despite the im
pressive showing, Hohensee said, "I'm
really not surprised we've done this
well. There is quite a bit of talent on this
team. With a few breaks, we could be 7-
0 right now."
Included in Minnesota's five wins this
season ,is last week'§ regionally
televised 12-10 squeaker over Big Ten
co-leader Iowa. "That was the most
emotional game we've played all
year," said Hohensee. "But we had the
best practices we'd had all year the
week before Iowa, and we've been
practicing really well this week, too.
"All of us have one goal in common,
he added, speaking for his teammates.
"We want to make it to a bowl game."
For Minnesota, the next step toward
earning a bowl is winning the jug.
