Washington to gain more respect

from Wol
(Continued from Page 9}
This past season Flick's aerials ac-
counted for 2,178 yards and 15 touch-
downs, as he completed an even 60 per-
cent of his tosses (168 or 280). His
career completion percentage of .603
(252 of 418) ranks as the best in Huskie
history, his 24 touchdowns put him at
third in that department, and he is four-
th in yardage with 3,171.
"I think it's important to judge quar-
terbacks in terms of whether or not
they led your team to victory," James
said. "We put a lot of pressure on Tom,
in terms of injuries to our running
backs, and in the fact that opposing
teams knew we wouldn't let him run or
scramble.
"WHEN THEY BLITZED, they knew
where he would be," he continued.
"Tom still came through and had a big
year. The other thing about him is that
he is an excellent.

When James looks at Michigan, he
sees somewhat of a reflection of his own
ballclub. "I think there are a lot of
similarities between the teams," he
said. "We were both picked to finish in
the middle of the standings. We were
both looking at rebuilding years.
"They started out slow, like us. They
lost a couple games early, like us. They
came on strong, like us. I think their
defense came on as strong as anybody
in the country."
That it did. The unit which suffered
almost as many graduation losses as
did Washington's (with only three star-
ters returning from 1979) established
itself as one of the nation's best,
blanking indiana, Wisconsin, Purdue,
and yielding three points to Ohio State.
As for the attack, it remains to be
seen whether the massive offensive line

and thus made room for Woolfolk.
"We asked Stanley to make the move
from tailback to fullback," Bo said.
"It's not an easy move because more
blocking is involved, and the back is
closer to the line of scrimmage. Stanley
struggled in the early part of the year,
but towards the end of the year he star-
ted to show some real improvement."
While Rose Bowls are always special
to the players, quarterback John
Wangler must be walking tall
nowadays. He came back from his
Gator Bowl injury to complete 105 of 192
passes for 1,377 yards and 15 touch-
downs. And Bo sure appreciates the ef-
fort.
"John Wangler's really been an un-
believable story this year," he said.

Bo hopes that the presence of Carter

bowl. "During the last few weeks of this -
season, we felt that we could beat
anyone the way we were playing. If we
do the things in the Rose Bowl that we
did over the last of the season, I feel
that we can beat Washington."

Placekicker Chuck Nelson tied a Pac-
10 record with,18 field goals (in 26 at-
tempts) in '80, including the 25-yarder
with two ticks on the clock which beat
Stanford. The punting hasn't been quite
as effective, with Rich Camarillo
averaging 37.9 yards per kick,

quintet can live up to its post-season
billing in Pasadena. Center George
Lilja, guards John Powers
and Kurt Becker, and tackles Muranski
and Paris all were named to one All-Big
Ten team or another.
THESE GUYS consistently opened
wide holes for fullback Stanley Edwar-
ds and tailbacks Butch Woolfolk and
Lawrence Ricks to run through all
season. Woolfolk ended up nosing out
the other two in the yardage derby with
his big day against the Buckeyes. He
finished with 860 yards, while Edwards
accumulated 833, and Ricks totaled 829.
Schembechler gives a lot of the credit
to Edwards, who moved from his
natural tailback position to fullback

Behind every Rose Bowl con-
testant there is usually a good
quarterback, and this year's
game is no different. John
Wangler's counterpart at
Washington, Tom Flick (left)
completed 60 percent of his
passes during the regular season,
and leads a balanced attack. The
running game is anchored by
Toussiant Tyler, a converted
tailback who now occupies the
fullback spot. Tyler overcame
some early-season injuries to ac-
cumulate nearly 700 yards in
rushing for the Huskies.

Those Painful Memories
Blue seniors remember '78 upset

By MARK MIHANOVIC
Anniversaries. Times for celebration,
right? Take a joyous event and make it
an. occasion to have a good time in
reminiscence once per annum.
But when Michigan and Washington
take the field in the Rose Bowl on New
Year's Day, it will mark the third an-
niversary (minus a day) of not-so-
happy afternoon of football for the
Wolverines. On January 2, 1978, the
heavily-favored contingent from Ann
Arbor was stunned by the Huskies, 27-

All-big Ten center George Lilja, for
example, snapped for punts and extra
points as he waited for senior Walt
Downing to move on. During the first
quarter, in fact, Lilja made his presen-
ce known, albeit in an unpleasant way,
by snapping the pigskin low to punter
John Anderson and forced him to drop
his knee to the turf, where the Huskies
took over.
"We were highly rated going into the
game, and we lost," Lilja recalled. "We

remember is the effort given as we
tried to come back."
Fifth-year senior guard John Powers
had seen a lot of action as a sophomore
lineman in 1977, starting ten games in
place of injured veterans John Geisler
and Bill Dufek. But by the time of the
all-important matchup with Ohio State,
everybody was healthy, and Powers
found himself stalking the sidelines
during the next two outings.
HIS RECOLLECTION IS not a

more on the mental aspects, and it
helped prepare us for USC."
THEY WERE ALL unanimous,
however, on one point. "We're a lot
closer, and we play a lot more together
this year," Powers said. "It's taken a
lot of hard work to get where we are,
and that has brought us all closer. We
went through some rough times, and
those rough times helped to improve
us."
Mitchell concurred that ,the '80
