By MARK MIHANOVIC
NOBODY NEEDS TO RUN through the
record. There is no secret about the
frustration. But when Michigan (9-2) steps into
the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day against the
Pacific 10 champion Washington Huskies (9-2),'
Bo Schembechler and troops can begin to make
amends for the final game failures of the
1970's-but it will take that so-elusive victory.
And it will take a victory over the Pac-10's
outright titleholder, a team that became the co-
favorite-along with Stanford-to represent the
conference in Pasadena after five schools were
deemed ineligible because of academic in-
discretions, a team that went ahead and beat
Southern California anyway, 20-10, in Los
Angeles.
Don James' current crew of Huskies is con-
sidered by most to be a stronger contingent than
the one which upset the Wolverines, 27-20, in the
1978 Rose Bowl. "We went down there 7-4 and

"Defensively, we totally had to rebuild,"
James said. "We had graduated nine starter s,
and seven of those guys had a shot at the NFL.
We tried to be fancy, tried to trick people, slide

things they couldn't. We just did a better
coaching job defensively as the year wetit

Junior tackle Fletcher Jenkins (6-2, 247 pouh-
ds) led the team in tackles behind the line f
scrimmage, along with outside linebackets
Mark Stewart (a 6-3, 230-pound sophomore) add
Bret Gagliardi (6-3, 225, senior), all recording
ten. Junior nose guard Mark Jerue (6-2, 231) lid
in solo stops with 71, while sophomore inside
linebacker Ken Driscoll (5-1112, 216) was togs
with 140 total tackles. Senior safety Ken Gardner
(5-10, 187) led the Huskies with-four interceptio s
during the regular season.
But Washington's best unit is the one that h~s
moved the football up and down the gridiron to
