Buckeye
tailback
combo set
for Blue

By JEFF SNOOK
Sports writer, The Ohio State Lantern
Ten weeks ago, if somebody said that Ohio State's
tailback position would be as productive as Georgia's
Herschel Walker or USC's Marcus Allen, most obser-
vers would have scoffed at the idea.
But with one game still remaining, tailbacks Tim
Spencer and Jimmy Gayle have combined for 1,660
yards and 19 touchdowns, putting the combination in
the same company as Walker and Allen.
SPENCER, A junior from St. Clairsville, Ohio,
crossed the 1000-yard mark Saturday against North-
western when he ran for 108 yards. Spencer now has
1,011 yards on 179 carries for a 5.6 yard average. The
6-1, 210-pounder has also rushed for 12 touchdowns.
Gayle, a senior from Hampton, Virginia, has
rushed for 649 yards on 135 carries for a 4.8 yard
average. Gayle rushed for more than 100 yards in
back-to-back wins over Illinois and Indiana earlier
this season.

Spencer and Gayle came to Ohio State after fine
prep careers. Spencer rushed for 3,144 yards and
scored 49 touchdowns in high school. Gayle, whose
brother Shaun plays cornerback for the Buckeyes,
won all-Virginia honors at Bethel High School. His
team also won two state championships during his
career.
SPENCER BEGAN the season as starting tailback,
but Gayle came on strong in the loss to Wisconsin.
Now, Spencer and Gayle alternate with each offen-
sive play.
"Tim and I complement each other well," Gayle
said: "You would always like to be the starting
tailback, but I am satisfied now that I am carrying
the ball more."
Spencer, who was the starting fullback last season,
was moved to tailback after the graduation of Calvin
Murray.
"THERE IS NO question-I like the tailback
position much more than fullback," Spencer said.

"Especially in Coach (Earle) Bruce's offense where
the tailback is featured. I like to run the ball at least
20 times a game."
Bruce praised both of his tailbacks. "Tim Spencer
has been a truly fine tailback this season. He has
great speed and he is very consistent. Jimmy Gayle
hits the hole quick and he sometimes breaks three or
four tackles on a run."
Of this week's showdown with arch-rival Michigan,
Spencer said, "They (the Wolverines) have more or
less the same defense as last year. We have always
moved the ball on them, but we have had trouble put-
ting it into the end zone."
In what is usually a ground-oriented game, Spencer
and Gayle will be countered by the Wolverines' Butch
Woolfolk, who has rushed for 1,189 yards in 207
carries. At the start of the season, most people would
have laughed at a comparison between the Buckeye
tailbacks and All-Big Ten runner Woolfolk. Nobody's
laughing now.

WON===%

t' goal
By BARB BARKER
It started with a bet seven years ago.
"I had just moved to Buffalo from
Ohio. The Sabres had just started
playing there, and my family got
season tickets," explained Michigan
hockey goalie Peter Mason. "After
watching a few games, I told my dad
that I just had to start playing. He
wasn't too sold on the idea so I made
him a bet."
MASON MADE a wager with his
father that the Sabres would defeat the
Montreal Canadians in the 1974-75
Stanley Cup playoffs. If the Sabres won,
Mason's father would buy him goalie
pads and Mason could start to play
hockey competitively. If the Canadians
won, however, Mason would be out
$50.
The Sabres beat the Canadians, and
thus Mason began a hockey career in
which he played for the Junior Sabres'
team and eventually made his way to
the Michigan squad.
Currently, the 22-year-old senior
(with junior eligibility status) has been
alternating in the net with freshman
Jon Elliott. Mason is ranked first in the
Central Collegiate Hockey Association
(CCHA) with a 1.85 conference goals-
against average (1.30 overall) and was
the Wolverines' candidate for CCHA
Player-of-the-Week honors two weeks.
in a row, after series with Toronto and
Lake Superior State, respectively.
MASON HAS accumulated a 2-0-1

te Masoni
season record thus far, including last
Saturday night's 4-3 home-ice win over
Western Michigan.
Mason was less-than-satisfied with
his performance, however. "I wasn't
pleased at all with how I did. I let in a
couple shots that I shouldn't have," he
said. "It could have been a goal-less
game for Western. I liked the way I
played at Lake Superior better, even
though we only tied them."
The Williamsville, N.Y. native has
not always been in a position where he
could judge his own game performan-
ces, since this is the first season in
which he has seen regular action. Last
winter, standing in the shadow of
Michigan All-American goalie Paul

t keeps n
Fricker, Mason's only playing time
came in an exhibition game against
Windsor.
MASON FEELS that his relative suc-
ces thus far in 1981 is not a result of his
own improved play, but rather is due to
the fact that he has finally been given a
chance to prove himself on the ice.
" It was really hard to go to practice
every day last year knowing that I
wasn't going to get a chance to play in
the games," he said. "It's different
now that I'm out there playing every
weekend. Practice now is not only a
time to improve, but a time to pick up
on the finer points of the game."
Giordano echoed Mason's sentiments
that the goalie's increased playing time
is a direct cause of his success.
"HE'S PLAYED pretty good this
year," said the Wolverine coach. "He's
got the concentration. He's just got to
stop giving away some easy goals in or-
der to play regularly."
Mason believes that goalie is a key
position and probably the hardest one to
play.
"It's a very lonely position. I look at
it as the team, and then the goalten-
der," he said. "I definitely feel the
pressure when playing. I blame myself
for every single goal."
Although Mason plans to stay an ex-
tra year and play out his college hockey
eligibility at Michigan, he feels that this
season is nonetheless a very crucial one
for him as he considers a future in

et clear
hockey.
"If things go well for me this season,
it could open up a few doors," he said.
"I really want to go on and play hockey
somewhere after I'm through here. But
I can't really tell what's going to hap-
pen then."
Stu dents
want ouster
YPSILANTI (AP) - Two student
government leaders at Eastern
Michigan University - which has thel
second-longest losing streak in the
nation- have called on football coach
Mike Stock to resign even though school
officials rehired him earlier this week.
In a letter Tuesday, student body
President Mark Lee and Vice President
David Penrose asked Stock to resign ef-
fective after the Hurons' final game
Saturday against Western Michigan.
"In four years, EMU is 6-34-1. We're
0-10 this year. We've never received so
much negative publicity as we have
now,' Lee said.

For all you intramural hoopsters out
there, here's some good news and some
ad news.
First, the bad news: there will be no
All-Campus Pre-Holiday Basketball
Tournament this year. The
Recreational Sports budget cuts of last
spring did away with that affaii, along
with the 5-9-and-Under hoop season
and the pre-holiday volleyball, hockey,
and water polo tourneys.
NOW FOR THE good news: the
*University of Michigan Officials
Association (UMOA) is sponsoring a
one-day, single-elimination basketball
tournament, open to all Michigan
students and recreational User's Pass
Holders.k
"We're doing it to supplement the loss
of the pre-holiday tournament, and to
give experience to the officials in the
Association," said UMOA member and
tournament coordinator Dennis Carter.
The day-long tourney will be held on
Saturday, December 12, and is open to
a total of 24 teams at a cost of $20 per
squad. The entry deadline is Friday,
December 4, or until all 24 team slots
become filled.
"ONE OF THE basic reasons behind
it is to give teams the opportunity to
play together before the regular season
comes up in January," said Carter.
Similar UMOA tournaments will not
be held in other intramural sports,
however, IM cagers get this extra
event, said Carter, because of basket-
ball's widespread popularity as a sport
and the fact that "the Association is

geared toward basketball." Carter ad-
ded that a special softball season may
be on the agenda for March or April,
but that those plans were tentative.
The IM Building (on Hoover St.) will
be open to members of the general
public who wish to watch the tour-
nament action. The tourney finals are
scheduled for 8 p.m.
