Grid offense takes to air

By RON POLLACK
Last year, the Michigan football
teamn utilized the forward pass more
-than in past years, and as spring foot-
ball practice begins today, Bo Schem-
bechler is planning on making his team
even more pass oriented..
"I think everyone ought to throw the
ball," said Schembechler. "(Anthony)
Carter, (Stanley) Edwards and (Butch)
Woolfolk should throw. Carter can
throw beautifully. I feel that in football
today, you have to do both (pass and
run)"
ONE RESULT of the Wolverines
recent incorporation of the pass is the
use of running backs as receivers. "The

backs have got to be receivers. You
have to have five guys who can catch
the ball, and use them all," said
Schembechler.,
But Schembechler emphasizes that in
order for the offense to move the ball,
it's not just a matter of passing more of-
ten, but execution and timing.
"In football there are only so many
things you can emphasize," said
Schembechler. "You can say you want
great kicking, great defense, great
passing; great option attack, great
power running, but you can't do all of
that. It's impossible. You don't have
time and you can't absorb it, you can't
teach it.
"SO YOU PICK out the most impor-

tant things that you really want to get
across. Look at our offense last year.
Do you know how many plays we ran?
Four or five, that's all. How many
passes? Half a dozen. The question is,
did you throw them at the right time,
did you block and did you execute?"
If the answer to these questions are to
be yes next season, then Schembechler
must find four new offensive starters.
For the second year in a row the
quarterback spot will be contested.
Leading candidates ,for this spot are
junior Rich Hewlett and sophomore
Steve Smith. Although both are very
talented, their lack of experience will
have to be overcome.
"THE BIG THING will be retooling
at quarterback, that'll be the big thing
to come out of spring practice," said
Schembechler. "It's hard to predict
success with no real established quar-
terback."
Schembechler notes that whichever
player gains the starting berth, a new
dimension will be added to the
Wolverines' offense.
"We'll have a quarterback that's a
little more mobile. They could set their
sights on John (Wangler) and go after
him. You overcommit on Smith or
Hewlett and they can run the ball," said
Schembechler.
OTHER quarterbacks include Dave
Hall, Greg Powell, B.J. Dickey, after a
one year hiatus, and Fritz Burgess.

With the graduation of Alan Mitchell,
the wide receiver position is one which
Schembechler will be looking to fill
during spring practice. Vying for the
starting role are senior Fred
Brockington, junior Kenny Gear and
sophomore Vince Bean.
When talking about this vacancy,
Schembechler seems to have some
reservations. "The big thing is having
another speedy receiver. I worry a little
about that," he said. Rounding out the
Wolverine receiving corps are tight
ends Norm Betts and Craig Dunaway.
ALTHOUGH tackles Bubba Paris
and Ed Muransky return with guard
Kurt Becker to form a strong foun-
dation, the offensive line was weakened
by the loss of center George Lilja and
guard John Powers to graduation. Par-
ticularly worrisome to Schembechler is
finding a replacement for Lilja.
"That center position is really key.
That may even be more key than quar-,
terback. The center's got to be good,"
said Schembechler.
Competing for Lilja's spot will be
sophomores Larry Sweeney and Tom
Dixon along with Jeff Felten, a senior
with two years of eligibility remaining.
Senior Tom Garrity, who also has two
years of eligibility remaining, would
also have warranted a look for the cen-
ter spot had it not been for knee surgery
which will keep him out of spring prac-
tice.

Michigan's hockey season came to an
official erd Sunday night when the
NCAA Ice Hockey Committee, despite a
Vote for Michigan by the coaches'' Ad-
visory Committee from the West, chose
Wisconsin for the second and final at-
large berth for this weekend's regional
series.
.p"We got screwed," said an extremely
upset head coach John Giordano Sun-
day night. Yesterday he talked to
committee member Jim Lessig,
athletic director at Bowling Green,
about his dissatisfaction with the selec-
tion. According to Lessig, because of
the tie-breaking criteria of season
record, head-to-head competition and
post-season play, Wisconsin was the
clear selection in their minds and that
the coaches' committee "used the
wrong criteria to select Michigan."
WISCONSIN INDEED presented a
strong case, posting a 17-11 conference
and 24-14 overall record for a second
place tie in the Western Collegiate
Hockey Association and besting
Michigan three out of four times during
the season.
Michigan, on the other hand, finished
at 15-13 and 23-17, good for a fifth-place

tie, but beat Denver at DU Arena 10-6 in1
total goals in the first round of playoffs
while Wisconsin lost, 13-12 total goals,
to seventh place Colorado College. The,
Wolverines also had a very strong finish
(9-4 in their last 13 games), losing only
to Michigan Tech, the last two times
over the weekend, 2-1 and 7-1, in the
second round of WCHA playoffs.
Wisconsin split its last eight games
against the seventh, ninth and tenth
place teams.
The regional seedings for the West
are: 1. Minnesota, WCHA Champion; 2.
Northern Michigan, Central Collegiate
Hockey Association Champion; 3.
Michigan Tech, at-large berth; 4.
Wisconsin, a-large berth.
Women trackstersfall
Michigan's women's track team
traveled to Pocatello, Idaho for the
AIAW national meet this past weekend,
and though they returned without
having scored any points; "They found
out what the good competition is like,"
according to coach Ken Simmons.
Leading 'M' performers included Sue
Frederick, who, though laboring under
the effects of the flu, still finished ninth
in the 1,000 meter run. Melaine Weaver,
beset by allergies, managed a 12th

place run in the 5,000 meters.
OTHER HEALTHY Wolverines were
simply outclassed by athletes from
schools with superior facilities and fun-
ding. Lori Thornton, for example,
sailed to a 19'6" in the preliminaries of
the long jump, one of her best efforts-
ever. Yet she didn't make it into the
finals. The 4 x 200 relay team of Cathy
Sharpe, Renee Turner, Thornton and
Brenda Kazinec ran a 1:41.95, close to
their fastest seasonal time, but were
left far behind a number of teams,

'hopes
paced by the winning 1:36.68 of Florida
State University.
Overall, the Michigan tracksters
gained few honors, but much experien-
ce in the face of some overwhelming
competition. "The 4 x 400 relay team
from MSU was the best thing in the Big
Ten, with a 3:47," said Simmons "In the
final at Pocatello, they finished 110
yards behind the winning team, which
did 3:37. And our best this season was
3:59.

'B' team, 2-1. Michigan averted a shutout in the second half when Al Clavel scored
the lone goal for'the Wolverines.

Members of the Michigan racquetball club travelled to Champaign to compete
in the united States Racquetball Association National Intercollegiate Champion-
ship. The Wolverines took second place in the meet, falling only to Memphis State.
Highlighting Michigan's performance was Larry Fox, who defeated Kenny
Lailenten of California in the first singles division and went on to become the
national racquetball champion.
MAKING AN IMPRESSIVE SHOWING for the Wolverines was Lee Bentsen
who advanced to the finals in the second singles division. Bentsen was then
defeated by Danny Cohen of Memphis State.
The doubles team consisting of Vince Mack and Michael Seidman got off to a
rocky start when they lost in the first round of the tournament. The duo did not
drop another game, however, and went on to win the consolation competition.
