Wolverine gridders face tough Gophers

Special to the Daily
MINNEAPOLIS- The 1981 Michigan
football rollercoaster makes a stop in
the Gopher state today with its Rose
Bowl aspirations hanging by a thread.
"We have quite a chore on our han-.
ds," said Michigan coach Bo Schem-
bechler following the Wolverines' 38-0
shellacking of Northwestern last week.
"We might very well be: playing the

four best teams in the league right now
over the course of the next month. That
presents quite a challenge."
THE "CHALLENGE" begins with
the Gophers in the grassy confines of
Minnesota Stadium; a surface the
Wolverines have had difficulty playing
on in recent years. The game begins at
2:00 EST.
"Minnesota is the type of team that
you aren't going to dominate," added
Schembechler. "You have to be able to

pass and do some other things to keep
them off balance. They are also more
difficult to defense than a year ago.",
The reason for this difficulty is Min-
nesota's junior college transfer quar-
terback Mike Hohensee. His passing
statistics (85 of 174 passes completed
for 1230 yards and 10 touchdowns),
although not earth-shattering, are
enough to draw respect from Schem-
"HE'S THROWN for over 1,000 yards
so you believe he's good," said Schem-
bechler. "He's given them the oppor-
tunity to get the ball to (senior receiver
Chester) Cooper, who's a great
The Hohensee to Cooper connection
has hooked up 32 times this season and
is chiefly responsible for Minnesota's
impressive showing thus far (3-2 con-
ference, 5-2 overall).
"I'm not really surprised we've done
this well," said Hohensee, a junior who
transfered from Mt. San Antonio Junior
College in'California. "There really is
quite a bit of talent on this team. With a
few breaks, we could be 7-0 right now."
MINNESOTA HAS been lucky thus
far-lucky that the conference title
race has been neck and neck. Seven
teams are separated by one game,
making this one of the wildest Big Ten
seasons in a while.
"It's definitely kind of a crazy

season," said Gopher head coach Joe
"Smokey" Salem. "The first part of our
schedule has been advantageous to us.
We wanted to come into the conference
schedule in pretty good shape so we
dropped Southern Cal from our
schedule and added Oregon State. We
wanted to be ready for the conference
Minnesota solidified its visions of a
championship with a 12-10 upset over
Iowa at Iowa City. According to Salem,
the Gophers caught the Hawkeyes
"I THINK WE got them flat," ex-
plained Salem. "When we came down
to Iowa City, all I heard was talk about
the win over Michigan and the chances
of going to the Rose Bowl. I read about
all the bowl opportunities Iowa had. Not
much was mentioned about us coming
into town to play them. We definitely
caught them by surprise."
Salem eliminated the notion that
Minnesota might suffer an emotional
letdown after the Iowa thriller.
"You've got to be kidding," said
Salem. "You play the slightest bit flat
against Michigan and they'll blow you
off the field. We'll be just as pumped up
for Michigan as we were for Iowa."
Schembechler also realizes that he
has a tough game on his hands for one
particular reason. "We'll be at Min-
nesota," he said.

With only four games to go, the
Big Ten enters the homestretch of what
has thus far been as wild a scramble for
the roses as any upset-lover could hope
for. Last week's defeats of conference
leader Iowa and second-place ,Wiscon-
sin created a situation in which seven
teams have a legitimate shot at the Big
Ten championship.
Ohio State and Iowa stand atop the
conference at 3-1, but close behind are
Michigan, Minnesota, Purdue, Illinois,
and Wisconsin with 3-2 marks. The last
team that won the Big Ten despite two
losses was Wisconsin in 1959, but it is
very conceivable that the 1981 cham-
pion will have that many..

THE BUCKEYES have the oppor-
tunity today to knock one squad out of
the running as they travel to Ross-Ade
Stadium to play Purdue before 70,000
fans and an ABC-TV regional audience.
This marks the first meeting between
the two powers in three years. In 1978
Purdue played the spoilermaker role by
thwarting the Buckeyes' Rose Bowl
hopes with a 27-16 win.
Last week in Ohio State's 29-10 vic-
tory over Indiana, back-up running
back Jimmy Gayle rushed for 186 yards
in 29 carries whilefilling in for All-Big
Ten fullback Tim Spencer, who left the
game early with an ankle injury. Spen-
cer is listed as questionable for today's
QUARTERBACK Art Schlichter is
also a threat on the ground. "What
makes Ohio State so tough to defense,"
said Purdue coach Jim Young, "is that
they don't just drop back and throw the
ball. With Schlicter in there, they have
the ability to pass off the option play or
run it."
Last week Schlichter ran off of the op-
tion five times for 48 yards while
passing for 156 yards. Another Buckeye
asset is 'the foot of placekicker Bob.
Atha, who booted a record-tying five
field goals last week.
Purdue, though, has a potent offense
of its own, featuring quarterback Scott
Campbell and the nation's leading
pass receiver, Steve Bryant (40 recep-
tions). "You could place Bryant
anywhere on the field," Ohio State
coach Earle Bruce said, "and he'd be a
threat. He's got fine speed and a great
pair of hands. He's just an excep-
tionally good receiver."
BOTH TEAMS field strong defenses.
The Buckeyes spotted Indiana 10 points
early in the second quarter last week,
but shut them out for the rest of the
game. Purdue is very strong against
the run and is led by sophomore
linebacker Brock Spack, who recorded
13 solo tackes last week in a 27-26
squeaker over Michigan State.
In the other game involving a con-
ference leader, the Hawkeyes travel to
Champaign in a game pitting tige
league's best defense against the pass
versus the nation's leading passer.

Illinois quarterback Tony Eason is
averaging 347 yards a game this season
through the air, and has had five con-
secutive 300-plus outings. Last Satur-
day Eason connected on 26 of 38 attem-
pts for 357 yards in the Illini's 23-20 win
over Wisconsin.
"I THINK IT is now time to say that
you have an All-American quarterback
in Tony Eason," said Illinois coach
Mike White. I've had other All-
American quarterbacks, and Tony's
certainly in that class."
At the other end of Eason's passes is
the receiving trio of Mike Martin, Oliver
Williams, and Darrell Smith, who have
combined for 66 catches and 11 touch-
"We've got ot regroup this week,"
said Iowa coach Hayden Fry. "We'

at the hands of Michigan State and
Illlinois to knock them out of the con-
ference lead. But today the Badgers
are back at Camp Randall Stadium,
and their opponent is a team that has
not won a game in nearly three years.
But Wildcat coach Dennis Green has
not given up. "What we have to do is
understand that Wisconsin is a good
defensive football team, and that is why
they have stayed in games. Offer-
sively, they are not as strong. They
have a good offense, but it is not nearly
as potent as they would like it to be."
The only game not involving a league
contender matches Indiana (2-3) and
Michigan State (1-4). Despite their
record, the Spartans have played well
'I think it is now time to say
that you have an All-
American quarterback in
Tony Eason. I've had other
All-A merican quarterbacks,
and Tony's certainly in that

Mike White
of late, averaging 26 points over their
last three games. Last week the Spar-
tans were one kick away from upsetting
Purdue as placekicker Morten Ander-
son missed a 52-yard field goal attempt0
on the last play of the game to lose, 27-
26. And two weeks ago the Spartans
overwhelmed Wisconsin, 31-14.
"Michigan State is playing very well
right now," Indiana coach Lee Corso
said. "They are very tough to play in
their own stadium."
The Hoosiers will try to beat
Michigan State via the pass. Quarter-
back Babe Laufenberg has completed
over 60 percent of his throws this
season, and big-play specialist -Duane
Gunn is the leading Indiana receiver,.*
averging 21.1 yards a catch.

came back strong after our-other loss to
Iowa State this season and I'm con-
fident we can do it again. But Illinois
certainly presents a challenge. It has a
great passing game and puts a lot of
points on the board."
THOUGH THE Hawkeyes lost 12-10,
last week to Minnesota, they did not
allow a touchdown. And two weeks ago
they limited Michigan to only one in a 9-
7 triumph.
This week Wisconsin should get a
chance to recuperate. After starting
the season with five straight home vic-
tories, the Badgers took to the road and
quickly picked up back-to-back' defeats

Special to the Daily
MT. PLEASANT- The Michigan Women's Field Hockey
team took a tough loss from the stickers of Central Michigan
yesterday, losing a defensive battle to the Chippewas, 1-0.
The lone goal of the contest came 5:53 into the first half,
and was scored 'on a penalty shot from the corner by Cen-
tral's Marge Rousch.
If offensive prowess were measured by shots on goal, the
Wolverines played a fine game. The first half was fairly
equal as Michigan had eight shots to Central's ten. But
the second half, the Wolverines stormed the CMU net, out-
shooting the Chippewa's 23 to 9.
The loss drops Michigan's record to 9-7-1 for the season, but
revenge for the Wolverine stickers is possible this morning at
9:00, when Central Michigan again provides the competition.
The Wolverines will also face Northern Michigan at noon.
