Single coverage not

enough for AC

I
,s

By BUDDY MOOREHOUSE
For Minnesota and Illinois, it was
a simple mistake in mathematics
Neither team seemed to realize that
Anthony Carter- plus one defender
equals disaster.
After receiving double and
sometimes even triple coverage for the
first seven games of this season, Carter
looked across the line in Minneapolis
two weeks ago and only saw one Gopher
assigned to cover him. Minnesota's
plan was to key on Michigan's potent
rushing attack, which had been loading
up on yardage all season* behind
tailback Butch Woolfolk.
JUDGING BY the numbers, alotting
Carter only one defender should have
been a safe bet. Entering the Min-
nesota game, Wolverine quarterback
Steve Smith had completed only 39.5

percent of his passes. And Carter, with
half of each opposing secondary
following him around the field, was
averaging just 58 yards in receptions
per game-hardly All-American
credentials.
But the Gophers soon learned that
covering Carter one-on-one wasn't such
a good idea. The skinny wide receiver
burned the Minnesota defense for 154
yards and one touchdown on eight cat-
ches in the 34-13 Michigan win.
"It's been tough on me (drawing
double coverage)", said the junior
speedster. "Nine out of ten times this
year, I've drawn double coverage."
THEN LAST Saturday Illinois,
disregarding the lesson of the previous
week, also bunched its defense close to
the line of scrimmage to stop the
Wolverine ground attack and left Car-
ter in a man-to-man situation. The
result: 154 yards and two touchdowns
on six catches in a 70-21 Blue win. in
addition to his receiving statistics, car-
ter also had 64 yards in punt returns, 82
on kick runbacks, and nine yards
rushing, making it the finest all-around
statistical day of his career.
"I feel good that I get to do all those

things," said Carter. "I just want to do
anything to help the team."
In the three seasons that Carter has
worn a Michigan uniform, he has done
quite a bit to help the team. The
Riviera Beach, Fla. native already
holds the school records for career
touchdown catches (28), receiving
yards (1,950), and kickoff return yards
(1,096), as well as a Big Ten single-
season mark with ii TD catches in con-
ference games in 1980.
CARTER'S performance as a
Wolverine player has caused Michigan
coach Bo Schembechler, normally
quitehreserved when it comes to han-
ding out priase, to hold nothing back
when discussing the 5-11, 161-pound
receiver. "You can always count on
him," said Schembechler. "He's such a
great competitor. Most kids that size
won't compete like he does. He's got
that look in his eyes, and you know he's
competing. I couldn't visualize him
being as great as he is."
Carter's outstanding play . has also
caused opposing players to pay extra-
special attention to him. "Yeah,
sometimes I feel like the other team is
out to get me," said the soft-spoken

education major. "There's always a
little talk here and there across the line,
but we're told not -to talk back. That's
one thing I really like about Bo."
Not only are defenses around the Big
Ten out for Carter's hide, but some op-
posing offensive players take their
shots, as well. "All the talk I've heard
has been about Number "1" (Carter)."
said Steve Bryant, who wears that digit
on his jersey for the Purdue Boiler-
makers, Michigan's opposition this
Saturday. "That gets me more pumped
up for the game. This Saturday, we'll
see who the real Number "1" is.''
BUT ALL OF the attention from op-
ponents, media, and fans doesn't seem
to fit the shy, unassuming wide
receiver. "I'm a very quiet person, and
I like to be left alone," said Carter.
"It's hard with people staring at me
when I walk around campus. I try to
avoid that."-
"He's got a heckuva sense of humor,
but he's not going to be an effervescent,
talkative guy," said Schembechler.
"He's probably nore concerned with
his teammates than any other player on
the team."

Wolverine fullback Stanley Edwards
agreed with the coach, citing an exam-
ple of Carter's unselfishness. "The
backup flanker to Anthony Carter last
year was Kenney Gear," explained
Edwards. "When we went to Madison,
Wisconsin last year, which is Kenney's.
home town, Anthony faked an injury so
Kenney could play in front of his paren-
ts. Bo wasn't about to put him in
because the game was tight for awhile.
Everybody wouldn't have done
something like that, but that's just the
type of individual he is."
WHILE A career in the Nationale
Football League certainly appears to
be in Carter's future, he is only concer-
ned now with the rest of the 1981 season.
"Our next two games are going to be
very tough," he said. "We've got one w
here and one on the road, and both
teams are good."
If Purdue and Ohio State have lear-
ned anything from the mistakes of
others, there will be more than one
defender keeping Anthony Carter com-
pany during the next two Saturday af-
ternoons.

By PAUL KULLMAN
Sports writer, The Purdue Exponent
Although Purdue is out of the Big Ten
race now, it still has a shot at a bowl
game. If the Boilermakers are to go
travelling over the holidays, they must
rely on the big gun in their offensive ar-
sonal.
The big gun, of course, is sophomore-
quarterback, Scott Campbell, who has
more than filled the shoes vacated by
Mark Herrmann.
"GOING INTO the season, I really
didn't know what to expect," admits
Campbell. "Actually, I think the
season has gone better for me, per-
sonally, than I thought it would."
Following in the footsteps of an All-

American quarterback can be an ex-
tremely difficult task, even for the most
precocious of players, but Campbell is
taking it all in stride.
I knew that's who everyone would be
comparing me to at the beginning of the
season, but I really didn't think about it

ficiency before running into trouble
against Iowa last week.
Two weeks ago against Ohio State,
Campbell 'was nothing short of
phenomenal. He completed 31 of 52
passes for 516 yards, all three figures
setting new Purdue records. He also
set a Boilermaker record for total of-
fense with 477 yards in that game.
By establishing himself as one of the
premier signal-callers in the country so
early in his career, much weight has
been lifted from his shoulders.,
"I GUESS IF I wouldn't have per-
formed, I would have heard 'oh, we'll
never have another guy like Herr-
mann'," Campbell said. "But since
I've done my job, I'm not hearing that."
Indeed, what Campbell has been
hearing has been a great deal of praise.
Nevertheless, he feels he has-a lot of
room for improvement.
"I think I can improve on
everything," the Hershey, Penn. native
said. "I think sometimes I run out of
the pocket when I don't need to, to try
and avoid the sack. I've also got to
learn to throw the ball away sometimes
or to hit my alternate receivers a little
better."
AS FAR AS the team as a Whole is
concerned, Campbell spelled out the key
to continued success in one word-con-
sistency.
'We have to be consistent throughout
the whole game without any major
breakdowns," he emphasizes. "I think
the mental aspect of it is probably the

attack
main thing, because we get outselves
going and then we let down mentally,
and that's why we don't move the ball.
We have to work on staying mentally
alert."
In additional to staying mentally
alert, Campbell also cites some other
factors which will be necessary in order
to keep the team's bowl hopes alive.
"I think we're going to have to be
very hard-hitting, play with great in-
tensity, great effort and prevent tur-
novers," he adds. "If we do that, I
think we'll be alright."
Scott Campbell has definitely been
"alright" as far as Boilermaker fans are
concerned this year. His performance
has helped smooth over the disappoin-
tment of Purdue's unsuccessful Big Ten
title bid and started the fans thinking
about his two remaining years in the
gold and black.
