By MARK MIHANOVIC
Editor's Note: This is the fifth in
a nine-part series examining the
1980 Big Ten football season. The
series was written by Sports Editor
Alan Fanger and Executive Sports
Editor Mark Mihanovic.
In his healthy' sophomore season,
Marion Barber rushed for 1,210 yards to
lead the Big Ten in that department,
with an average of 4.9 years per carry,
and scored 10 touchdowns. In an injury-
prone junior season, he still plugged
along for 526 yards on the ground,
caught 23 passes and crossed the goal
line 12 times.
Now Barber is healthy again for his
final season of play in the Minnesota
Gopher backfield, and many feel that,
when healthy, he is the conference's
most valuable performer. That's good
news for coach Joe Salem, because the
offense lost quarterback Mark Carlson,
five starting linemen, and sure-footed
placekicker Paul Rogind.
STILL, ONE GETS the feeling that
the 6-2, 231-pound Barber and his par-
tner-in-crime, senior fullback Garry
White (6-0, 206), are worth a few vic-
tories in themselves. Unlike Michigan
State's talented tandem of Steve Smith
and Derek Hughes, who specialize in
elusive outside and open-field running,
Barber and White have the size to run
over opposition tacklers.

Barber, a Detroit native, owns the
Minnesota record book. His 2,318 total
yards rushing and 24 touchdowns
already rank him atop all of his back-
field predecessors at Minnesota in each
category. He has exceeded 100 yards in
a game eight times. In his brilliant
sophomore campaign, he won All-Big
Ten and All-American honors.
White missed two full contests with
an injury himself in '79, but his outstan-
ding play against Ohio State (221 yards)

and Wisconsin (230 yards) paced him to
a team-leading total of 861 markers.
BUT SALEM NEEDS a quarterback.
Badly. At last month's Big Ten Kickoff
Luncheon, he termed the Gopher
signal-calling situation "horrible. What
kind of a team we have depends on who
plays quarterback and what he can do.
A lot is going to be determined on what
he does. I don't even know who's going
to start."
Last season, Carlson outdueled Tim
Clifford, Mark Herrmann, and Art
Schlichter in yardage per Big Ten game
with 214 and ranked third in the passing
efficiency department behind
Michigan's John Wangler and
Schlichter.
Greg Pylatiuk appeared to have the
inside track as Carlson's successor but
suffered a knee injury that required
surgery in the spring. Salem will
probably take a look at sophomore
transfer Bruce Olson,,sophomore Tom
Pence, and freshman Bill Swats to see
who he prefers behind center. Then
there's Tim Salem, a high school all-
stater in Arizona two years ago and in
Minnesota last fall. He is also the
coach's son, and Salem couldn't resist
chuckling at the situation.
"WE MAKE IT a policy that we're
not going to talk about it," Salem said.
"I'll tell you one thing, he's got a lot bet-

ter feet than I had when I played."
Ken Dallafior, a 271-pound junior, is
the only starter from last fall's offen-
sive line returning, and he takes his
stance at the left tackle position. Kent
Penovich (6-6, 286), who sat out last
season with a knee injury, is the other
tackle.
The Gophers lost wide receiver
Elmer Bailey, who nabbed 33 aerials in
'79 and averaged 15.0 yards per recep-
tion, to graduation, and he will be dif-
ficult to replace. But Minnesota is solid
at tight end, with lettermen Randy
Donnefeld (a 6-6, 238-pound senior) and
Mike Curtis (a 6-4, 209 pound
sophomore) both returning.
Defense cost the Gophers several
ballgames last fall, but there doesn't
seem to be much change in the forecast
for '80. Sophomores Kevin Kellin (6-6,
242) and Steve Bisch (6-5, 251) show
promise at the tackles, and three star-
ters return in the secondary, but there
are still several holes to fill.
And Salem no longer has Rogind
swinging his leg through the pigskin for
the Gophers. In four years at Min-
nesota, Rogind set club records for
points scored, field goals, points-after-
touchdown, and longest field goal.
Junior Duane Jurgens and freshman
Jim Gallery will try to fill his shoe.

I.M. institutes new
'instant scheduling'

I

By BECKY HOBART
The intramural and recreational
sports department, in an effort to solve
some past problems in its scheduling
system, has instituted a new system
called "instant scheduling." Depar-
tment officials feel the new system will
make further scheduling more ef-
ficient.
The new scheduling concept allows
teams to sign up and obtain their

schedules immediately rather than
having to wait and receive them
through the mail. All the teams have to
do is to pick the times they want to play
and sign up. It is a relatively easy
process, and according to department
assistant director Debbie Webb, it
should be much more efficient.
The need for instant scheduling came
about due to the hundreds of teams in-
volved in thedIntramural program.
"The old, scheduling system worked
well with smaller groups, but an in-
crease in the number of competitors
necessitated the use of a better
system," said Webb. The sports mainly
affected by the new system are softball,
football, volleyball and basketball.

Purdue's Herrmann
doubtful for W isconsin
CHICAGO (AP)-In a telephone interview at the weekly meeting of the
Chicago Football Writers, Purdue Coach Jim Young answered questions about th
thumb injury Mark Herrmann suffered last week which kept him from playing in
the 31-10 loss to Notre Dame.
Young kept repeating "I don't know" concerning Herrmann's sprained thumb
but emphatically stated "not the way we played" when asked if Purdue might
have defeated Notre Dame with Herrmann.
"We played poorly in all phases of the game," said Young. "We didn't play
with emotion. I don't know how much Mark's being out of there had to do with that
but we didn't block anybody and they stuffed our offensive line."
Young hopes the Boilermakers can turn things around against Wisconsin with
or without Herrmann.
"It's hard to anticipate what to expect from Wisconsin," said Young. "It's
their opening game and you never know what an opponent will do. They have the
film of our game against Notre Dame.
Do football teams improve the most between their first and second games as
some coaches contend?
"I don't know," said Young, "but I sure hope that will be the case.
Wisconsin Coach Dave McClain, in another telephone interview, said, "Purdue
will have all the advantage since they got beat. I'd guess they'll come roaring
back. They've had an extra week of practice on us and I'm one of those coaches
who believes you improve the most between your first and second game-more
than any other time during the season."
McClain said it'll be twice as difficult preparing for Purdue simply because th ,
Badgers will not know whether Herrmann will be ready to play.
"When you take a Herrmann out of there, it takes a lot out of your offensive
game plan," said McClain. "Notre Dame's defense wore Purdue down. We don't
have that kind of strength."

In 18,charles Martin Hall

found the secret of producing a low-cost aluminum,
and the world of Alcoa was born. Today we're still
number one in aluminum production, with 53 plants
and 113 sales offices in 15 countries...and we're
represented on every continent on earth.
Entire industries, such as aerospace, transportation,
packaging, building and construction, and more
depend on us for products like bridges, solar collector
panels, beverage cans, motor homes, power lines,
appliances, satellites, and thousands of others. And
they depend on our on-going research and the
development of aluminum applications which
yesterday were only dreams.
How do we turn dreams into realities? With the finest
mechanical, electrical, industrial and metallurgical
engineers, an eye to the future...and most important,
fresh minds with fresh ideas.
