High scoring Illini in town

J

By BUDDY MOOREHOUSE
Three weeks ago, things were-looking pretty lousy
for Michigan coach Bo Schembechler and his squad.
The Wolverines had just dropped a 9-7 heartbreaker
to Iowa which left them with almost no hope of a
return trip to the Rose Bowl.
But that was before the Fighting Illini of Illinois
decided to present Michigan with two gifts-a loss for
Wisconsin and one-for Iowa. And after boosting their
Big Ten mark to 4-2, the same as the Wolverines, the
Illini bring their aerial circus to Michigan Stadium
today, hoping to put an end to the gift-giving.
WITH ITS victories the last two weeks over the
Badgers and Hawkeyes, the two squads which claim
wins over Michigan this season, Illinois has planted
itself firmly in the race for the Big Ten crown, along
with Michigan, Ohio State and Wisconsin. And with
only three games left on the docket, a loss for any of
the four would be fatal.
"We're .turning everything loose now," said
Schembechler. "We have three difficult assignments
ahead of us over the next three weeks."
Assignment number one, Illinois, is bringing an air
attack that has accumulated a whopping 2,334 yards
on the year, roughly 80 percent of the team's total
yardage. Providing the arm for the Illini's passing
game is junior quarterback Tony Eason, a junior
college transfer who ranks fifth nationally in passing
efficiency with a 313 yards per game average.
"THEIR PASSING attack is impressive," admit-
ted Schembechler. "Eason is a fine thrower. Illinois
appears to be playing as well as any conference team
in the country right now."

Eason, who took over the signal-calling job this
year when fellow JC transfer Dave Wilson was
declared ineligible by the courts before this season, is
understandably pleased with the way the Illini have
been faring. "We're happy," said the 6-4, 205-
pounder. "We've improved offensively as well as
defensively, and when we win, it's a team victory."
Doing the receiving for Illinois are split end Mike
Martin, who has hauled in 30 Eason tosses for 586
yards and five touchdowns, and wide receiver Oliver
Williams, who has 28 catches for 541 yards and five
scores.
"THE RECEIVERS are getting better and better
every week," said Michigan cornerback Brian Car-
penter, who will certainly have his hands full today
trying to stop Eason and his receivers. "I take it as a
challenge."
All of the success the Illini have been having
through the airways has overshadowed the play of
their defense, which has been a big reason that
Illinois is still in the chase for the Big Ten crown. "We
think they are a better team than a year ago because
the defense is improved," said Schembechler.
That improved defense will have to contend today
with a new-found Michigan passing attack. Against
Minnesota last week, Wolverine quarterback Steve
Smith took to the air for 237 yards on 13 passes-his
best day ever at Michigan. Thanks to the single
coverage that the Gophers afforded Anthony Carter
most of the afternoon, the junior wide receiver hauled
. in eight of Smith's tosses for 154 yards and a touch-
down in the 34-13 Michigan win. But don't look for

Carter to enjoy the company of, only one defender
today.
"I THINK CARTER is one of the best ever," said
Illinois head coach Mike White. "You don't stop him.
We can't have just one guy on him. We've got to have
two, three guys taking a look at him."
Schembechler indicated that Carter was also going
to be returning all of the punts and kickoffs for the
remaining three games.
The Illini will also have to concern themselves with
stopping Blue tailback Butch Woolfolk, who is fat-
ahead of the rest of the Big Ten with a 132.3 yards per,,,
game average. "I think Woolfolk's the best runner i
the United States," said White, never one to hold back ..",
praise. "He runs like he's angry. He's what we call a
'violent runner."
DEFENSIVELY, the injury-riddled Wolverine.
defenders have only given up two touchdowns (bothi
to Minnesota) in the last 14 quarters. Although
neither are listed as starters, it is possible that Ben
Needham and Robert Thompson could both return to
the lineup today after sitting out several games with,
injuries. Linebackers Mike Boren and Paul Girgasli ~
currently share top defensive honors for Michigan,.,
piling up 65 tackles each.
"I had trouble getting my team out of the dressing.'.
room a year ago," said White,. referring to last-
*season's 45-14 Michigan win. "Our kids are very-,
much respectful of Michigan."
With a shot at the Big Ten crown on the line, White
shouldn't have any trouble getting his squad out onrt'
the field today.

The Big Ten men's cross country championships will be held today at the
University of Minnesota in' Minneapolis, and if there was ever a time when
Michigan coach Ron Warhurst wishedhis defending conference co-champs could
all run well on the same day, this would be it.
Unlike many other sports, cross country does not rely on a won-loss record ear-
ned through the season to determine the league champion. Instead, the champion.
is determined by one race-in this case the Big Ten championships. In less than
thirty-five minutes, all the work of a season is laid on the line, and the winner is not
necessarily the team that has attained the best regular season record. This is what
the Wolverines have going for them as they embark on their 10,000-meter scamper
through the Minnesota countryside.
THE WOLVERINES have not faired too well in regular season competition. At
the two meets that are most indicative of competitive prowess against their rivals,
The Notre Dame Invitational and the Central Collegiate Championships, the "M"
harriers finished a disappointing 12th and fifth, respectively.
Warhurst's fears seem to stem from overall depth. Two Michigan runners,
Gerard Donakowski and Bill O'Reilly, are both included in the exclusive group of
seven or eight harriers chosen by most to vie for the individual championship. Sur-
prising number three man Jim Schm4dt has shown consistent improvement over
the season, and has proven to be a dependable performer. But the key to a
Wolverine victory is not the performance of these three athletes; that is expected.
A good performance by the second half of the varsity team keys Michigan's hopes
for victory.
tWarhurst realizes that his "depth" runners all have the potential.to deliver ex-
cellent times, and have.one so (at different times) this season. He is hoping for
Mark Wycoff; Bill Brady, Glenn Craze, and Dan Beck to all have a good day on the
same day. This has not been done yet, but the hope is that it will happen soon.
While Michigan is the defending co-champion of the Big Ten meet, it won't be
like old times. Wisconsin's crop of "super froshs," Minnesota's home course ad-
vantage, and Indiana's constant quality, make hopes for a repeat performance dif-
ficult.

One loss and you're out.
That's the situation faced by, six
teams in the battle to unseat current
Big Ten leader Ohio State. The
Buckeyes have Michigan, Illinois, and
Wisconsin breathing down their, necks
in second place with identical 4-2 recor-
ds. Iowa, following its two week collap-
se is sole possessor of third at 3-2, while
Minnesota and Purdue are on their last
collective breath with 3-3 records in
fourth place. .
ALL IT WILL take for any of these
teams to take over first place are three
straight wins and the right combination
of wins-losses by other teams. Seven
Big Ten teams have now won five or six
games this year and at least three
games still remain. For the first time
since 1959, the Big Ten champion may
head for Pasadena with two conference
defeats.
"That's the great place to be right
'now, on top," said Ohio State coach
Earle Bruce. But to stay on top the
Buekeyes must win today in Mm-
Pistons
8682

neapolis. This will mark the 25th
meeting between these two teams and
Ohio State has won the last 12 straight.
Buckeye quarterback Art Schlichter
comes off what coach Earle Bruce
called, "A super game, his best per-
formance as a college quarterback."
Last week, Schlichter completed 19 of
33 passes for a total of 336 yards and
three touchdowns while scoring another
TD on a 14-yard run against Purdue.
OHIO STATE'S valuable groundmen,
Tim Spencer and Jimmy Gayle, rank
second and third in Big Ten individual
rushing. Spencer is the nation's 18th
highest in all-purpose running.
Minnesota's Frank Jacobs is the
Gophers' leading rusher at an overall
79.1 yards per game. Quarterback Mike
Hohensee was 21-40 in passing for a 213-
yard total against Michigan last week.
The team ranks fifth in total offense.
Wisconsin at Indiana
The road has been cruel to Wisconsin
this season. The Badgers will be trying
to win their first game away from
Madison- as they travel to Indiana's

Memorial Stadium today to take on the
Hoosiers.
"I don't' think going on the road will
be any factor at all for us," said
Wisconsin coach Dave McClain. "This
is such a big game for us, I think our
young men will be very mentally ready
to play."
The Wisconsin game marks Indiana's
return home after losing two road
games to Ohio State and Michigan
State. The Badgers though, are coming
into Indiana off a 52-0 blowout victory
over Northwestern and coach McClain
said this game is big because, "If we
win, it'll give us momentum going into
the final two games of the season.
Besides, they've shut us out two years
in a row."
Purdue at Iowa
With a history of 20 consecutive losses
to the Boilermakers,' dating back to
1961, thg Hawkeyes will be hungry forta
win. The question will be whether the
number one conference ranked Iowa
defense will be able to stop the Big
Ten's number one ranked Purdue of-

fense.
Scott Campbell, currently the top-
ranked quarterbackin the country, will
lead Purdue's offense along with Steve
Bryant, number one ranked receiver in
the NCAA.
Michigan State at Northwestern
"Stop State at 28" is the Wildcats
theme for their game today with MSU.
This refers to, of course, the 29 game
Division I rebord losing streak that
Northwestern will set if they lose to the
Spartans.
Michigan State coach Muddy Waters
has a different view on the North-
western team: "We've seen enough of
their films to know those players are
not losers, I don't care what the
scoreboard says."

LANDOVER, Md. (AP)- Rick
Mahorn scored 19 points, including two
free throws with six seconds left, to lead
the Washington Bullets to an 86-82 vic-
tory over the Detroit Pistons last night
in the National Basketball Association.
John Lucas scored two free throws
with 1:26 remaining to give Washington
an 84-81 advantage. Mahorn iced the
game shortly after stealing a rebound
from Detroit's Kent Benson, following a
Lucas miss with 16 seconds left.
The setback was Detroit's first after

three straight victories. The Pistons
took a 68-67 lead in the final period, but
fell behind 74-71 after going 4:21 without
a basket early in the quarter. Detroit
recovered to take an 80-78 lead, but a 20-
foot jumper by Greg Ballard with 3:21
left gave the Bullets the lead for good,
82-81.
Isiah Thomas led Detroit with 19
points. The Pistons led by nine late in
the second quarter and by five at the
half, but Washington cut the gap to one
entering the final period.
