Bluebonnet-thorn for Rose Bowl


Last weekend, in temperatures near freezing, many of the intermural
football championship games were played. The following is a summary of
some of the games played on the snowy, icy turf.
Football .
* Fraternity
Sigma Alpha Epsilon 8, Phi Gamma Delta 6
Fraternity class 'A' football hailed Sigma Alpha Epsilon as the season's
champs after a slim victory over Phi Gamma Delta, 8-6.
"We had a good team, most of our games were pretty close," said Kirk
Seablom. "Lots of guys returned from last year."
Sigma Alpha Epsilon's touchdown was scored by Jeff Collins with Blaine
Kubiak scoring the two extra points to give the team the two point winning
advantage over Phi Gamma Delta.
Zeta Beta Tau 2, Alpha Delta Phi 0
The defense was the key to Zeta Beta Tau's 2-0 win over Alpha Delta Phi to
claim the class 'B' championship. "We had a good team defensively, with
two interceptions in this game," said Bob Neides. The two interceptions
were snagged by Pete Lieberman and Larry Bronska.
The only two points in the game were scored on a safety as Zeta Beta Tau's
Howard Block tackled Alpha Delta Phi's quarterback in the endzone.
Invisible Hands 12, Blaraza 8
The Invisible Hands came through with a very visible last minute victory
over Blaraza with a 12-8 score to claim the class 'A' championship.
The Invisible Hands' first touchdown was scored when John Worthington
caught a 35-yard pass from quarterback Mark Lozier. The key play of thc
game, was an eight yard pass thrown by Lozier to Steve Szabo to score the
go-ahead points with only two minutes left in the game.
Boys in Business 16, Second Stage 8
"We had a pretty good team," explained Jeff Block. "We started playing
better as the season went on." The Boys in Business indeed did improve as
the season progressed, enought to become the class 'B' champions by
defeating Second Stage, 16-8.
The first touchdown came off a flea-flicker play as Mark Fooksman
caught the ball at the 7-yard line and ran in to score.
Co-R ec
* Alberts Warriors 14, Chicago Maize 8
One of our biggest secrets," explained John Weber, "is that we have lots
of mean girls to open up the big holes !"
Dave O'Brien scored both of the team's touchdowns while Jim Sauber
scored the two extra points after the first touchdown.
The Albert's Warriors are the class 'B' champs, but as Kevin Raftery said,
"We were just out to have a good time and we achieved that."
The IM Digest relates briefly the activities of the Michigan Inter-
mural program during the previous week. This week's information
was compiled byDaily sportswriter Tam Bentley.


The 1979 Rose Bowl was a source of controversy
because of USC running back Charles White's "phan-
tom touchdown" in the Trojans' 17-10 victory over
Michigan. This season the Rose Bowl controversy is
starting earlier.
The Rose Bowl committee is unhappy with the
Michigan-UCLA pairing in the Bluebonnet Bowl
because the two teams come from the Big Ten and
Pac-Ten, as do the two squads competing in the Rose
Bowl (Iowa and Washington).
"WE THINK IT takes away from our package,"
said Tournament of Roses football chairman Bill
Prior to the 1975 season, the Rose Bowl was the only
post-season game in which either conference par-
ticipated. But in 1975, the Rose Bowl informally
assented to a "gentleman's agreement."
"In 1975 they (the Big Ten and Pac-Ten) came to us
because they wanted to play in other bowl games,"
said Nicholas. "We recognized their dilemma and
reluctantly said yes, as long as they didn't do it on a
head-to-head basis."

ichigafl period, but'

Tournament of Roses executive committee may want
the informal agreement put in writing.
"We're going to sit down and discuss it with the Big
Ten and Pac-Ten," said Nicholas.
According to assistant director of the Bluebonnet
'In 1975 they (the Big Ten and Pac-10)
came to us because they wanted to play
in other bowl games. We recognized
their dilemma and reluctantly said yes,
as long as they didn't do it on a head-to-,
head basis. '

chairman Bill Nicholas
Bowl Les Haulbrook, the matchup was partially the
result of poor communication between UCLA coach
Terry Donahue and athletic director Bob Fisher.
WHEN INITIALLY contacted, Donahue expressed
an interest in the Bluebonnet Bowl should UCLA not
earn a Rose Bowl bid. Fisher was not aware of this,

and as ahresult, the Bluebonnet Bowl was led to
believe that UCLA was no longer interested in
playing in the Houston-based bowl.
So, a week ago Monday, Bluebonnet Bowl officials
got in contact with the Big Ten, which expressed an
interest in the game. Later Monday, however, UCLA
said it would'taccept an invitation to the Bluebonnet
Bowl. At that point, the game's matchmaker Sonny
Yates felt "we couldn't drop one in favor of the
Assistant director of the Bluebonnet Bowl, Les
Haulbrook, also noted that a Michigan-UCLA mat-
chup was too good to pass up. "It wasn't intended' to
put a Pac-Ten and Big Ten team in the Bluebonnet
Bowl," he said. "That's just the way the pieces fell in-
to place. Our main purpose is to put together the best
matchup possible."
While the Rose Bowl committee broods, Michigan
head coach Bo Schembechler has begun to look for-
ward to the December 31st contest, although he would
undoubtedly prefer to pace the sidelines on New
Years day. "I think it's a good matchup," said the
Wolverine mentor. "I have no qualms about going
down there."

when Keith Foxx defeated Kevin Hill at 177 pounds, and Mike
Potts downed Kirk Trost at 190 pounds.
Michigan's only victory of the night came in the
heavyweight division, where Eric Klasson won by default.
Klasson was ahead 11-0 in his match against Dan Dudley,
when Dudley was disqualified by the referee for stalling.
"We caught them short and out of shape," said Michigan
State coach Grady Peninger. "They were humiliated tonight,

Michigan State then jumped out to a 23-2 lead, by winning

Senior tailback Butch Woolfolk, the
Big Ten's* leading rusher this season,
was named the Wolverines' MVP for
1981 by a vote of his teammates in last
night's annual football bust at Weber's
Inn. Senior defensive back Tony
Jackson, who coach Bo Schembechler
calls "the finest free safety in the con-
ference today" was named as Hustler
of the Year. Champion of the Year, an
award given to a player behind the
scenes who significantly contributes to
the program through determination
and drive, was given to senior quarter-
back Brad Fischer.
Woolfolk, in his senior year, galloped
for 1305 yards, 5.6 average and five
touchdowns as the tailback shattered
Rob Lytle's all-time rushing mark of
3317. Woolfolk is Michigan's all-time
rusher and ranks third on the Big Ten
career list.
Jackson, a senior from Cleveland,
remained the mainstay in a crippled
secondary leading the team in intercep-
tions (5). Jackson also performed punt
return duties when Anthony Carter was
Donakowski cramped
Michigan cross-country was
represented by lone runner Gerard
Donakowski at the NCAA Champion-
ships held in Wichita, Kansas this past
Saturday, and the outcome was disap-
Running in the top 25, Donakowski
was in position to realize the goal of
becoming an All-American early on in

the race. The blistering early pace,
though, (two minutes at the half, 4:29 at
the mild), did not agree, too well with
Donakowski, as an onset of cramps,
and eventually a wave of nausea upset
him at the three mile mark of the 6.2
mile race.
DOMINATED IN the past by older,
more experienced foreign athletes, this
year was no exception, as the Univer-
sity of Texas-El Paso's contingent of
African athletes took first, second,
third, fourth, and seventh, led by 27
year-old sophomore South African
Matthew Motshwarateu.
Donakowski's roommate and team-
mate Bill O'Reilly relates the spirit
Donakowski took into the race. "He
went for it; he ran it like he had to for a
good performance, but this time it just
didn't work out," said O'Reilly.
In picking the 25 All-Americans (who
must be American citizens), selections
were forced to be made all the way to
52nd place. . -ANDREW OAKES
A Hardy Piston
Former Michigan cager Alan Hardy
was re-signed by the Detroit Pistons
over the weekend, thus reuniting him
with two former teammates.
Hardy, who played at Michigan from
1976 through '79 will be joining former
Michigan standout Phil Hubbard, who
played for the Wolverines over the
same four years. Hardy also played for
two years at Detroit's Northwestern
High School with current Piston Terry
HARDY, WHO was never drafted by
an NBA team, survived a 1979 Piston
rookie-free agent camp only to be
waived during the pre-season. He was

then signed again early in 1980 but was
cut before the start of the California
Summer Pro League. Hardy led that
loop in scoring with a 33.5 ppg average
and was signed by the NBA Los Angeles
Lakers on August 13, 1980.
