true team in every respect."
THAT IS ONE OF the factors which
made the 1980 Wolverines so unique.
The Rose Bowl victory itself was of a
very unique nature.
In the past, Schembechler and the
Wolverines have made a habit of out-
playing their opposition between the 20-
yard lines only to lose the so-called "big
games" by failing to convert on the key
plays, through plain bad luck, or
through a bit of both.
Against Washington, the Blue made
'We wanted to go out
there and give Bo a win
in the Rose Bowl . . . It
would mean a lot.'

all the big plays. Perhaps none was
bigger than the fourth down, goal line
stand Michigan executed midway
through the first period. With Huskie
quarterback Tom Flick displaying a bit
of the marvelous passing touch which
the national and international
television audience was to see all after-
noon, Washington marched from its
own 36 to the Wolverine four, where it
was second-and-goal.
But two plays later, the Huskies had
only advanced three yards, and
fullback Toussaint Tyler came up just
shy on his valiant dive, preserving the
young Michigan defense's streak of not
allowing a touchdown in 18 quarters (22
by game's end).

There were other big plays as
well-plays uncharacteristic of a
Michigan bowl performance: One of
Don Bracken's worst punts of the
season which bounced for a Rose Bowl
record of 73 yards ; an interception by
cornerback Brian Carpenter at the
Wolverines' eight-yard line to kill a
second Huskie drive; and time con-
straints at the end of the first half which
forced Washington to settle for its
second field goal.
Thus, instead of trailing by a touch-
down or two, Michigan went into half-
time, amazingly, on top, 7-6. And the
stage was set for the Butch Woolfolk-led
(182 yards) second half romp.
The victory provided retribution for
many of the players, as well as for Bo.
Quarterback John Wangler, who com-
pleted 12 of 20 aerials for 145 yards and
a touchdown, took the game's meaning
a step further.
"I wouldn't trade the past five years
for anything," Wangler said. "I've
come through the program and made
a lot of friends here. We've grown to be
a close-knit team, and I think that
helped us in working toward, first, the
Big Ten championship, and then the
Rose Bowl.
"There are so many guys who went
through the program and came up
short. I wanted to win it for those
guys-guys like (Ron) Simpkins, (Cur-
tis) Greer-they came so close to win-
ning a bowl game."
But the bottom line is that the 1980
Michigan Wolverines will be remem-
bered as the unit which gave Bo
Schembechler his first bowl victory af-
ter seven defeats. And for many of the
players, that alone was enough.

Wolverine icers conclude 1980
with four non-conference wins

By KENT WALLEY
Ask coach John Giordano or a mem-
ber of the Michigan hockey team how
1980 ended and he might tell you the
year went out like a lion.
While classes were recessed for the
holidays, the Wolverines roared
through five non-conference games and
came clear with only one loss.
Michigan's only defeat was in the
finals of the Great Lakes Invitational
Tournament as it bowed to' Michigan
Tech 3-2, in overtime.
But that was the only bad part of the
tournament for the Wolverines. Besides

taking second, Michigan defeated rival
Michigan State, and right wing Ted
Speers, defenseman' John Blum and
goalie Paul Fricker were named to the
all-tournament team. Fricker was also
honored as Most Valuable Player of the
tourney.
The Wolverines handed the Spartans
a 3-2 loss for the second time this
season, as Speers scored two goals.
Michigan is now 2-1 against the East
Lansing team this season.
Giordano was pleased with the in-
dividual performances. "He (Fricker)
has matured into a solid goaltender. He

is playing consistently better and bet-
ter," he said. But the coach attributes
the Wolverines' success thus far to
team contributions. "The key (to recent
success) is that we're making slow and
steady .progress and every one is
making a team contribution. We have
played with character. We stuck
together," said Giordano.
Just after classes had ended,
Michigan played Toronto at Yost Ice
Arena. Giordano claimed before the
series that his players would not be
giving their sharpest performance
because of the oncoming finals and the
emotional drain of playing North
Dakota the week before. The series
seemed to hold true to his words.
Despite sloppy play on both sides
Michigan edged Toronto twice in over-
time by the score of 4-3.
In 1981 the Wolverines have played
only one game. They defeated Windsor
Saturday night, 6-0.
All the victories over the break
brought Michigan's non-conference
'record to 13-7. In the Western Collegiate
Hockey Association the team is curren-
tly tied with Wisconsin. Both teams
'have conference records of 7-5. On top
in the WCHA are Denver, North Dakota
and Minnesota, all tied with 8-4 con-
ference records.
The Wolverines play the Badgers in
Wisconsin this weekend. "We're leery
of Wiscopsin. They have great offensive
skills," said Giordano, but he added,
"We are hoping to win two." The
Wolverines split a series with Wiscon-
sin earlier in the season at Yost.
