Ten contenders

y ..
e

(Continued from Page 11)
Skillings were first team All-Big Ten
selections; the front five, three of whom
are returning starters, combined for 39
sacks.
THE ONLY MAJOR losses to
graduation were linebacker Jim
Laughlin (who victimizead the
Wolverines by blocking a punt that
resulted in the winning touchdown in an
18-15 win), and cornerback Mike Guess.
Count Bell, Skillings, cornerback Ray
Ellis, Marek, Washington, outside
linebacker Keith Ferguson, and middle
guard Tim Sawicki as the best players
at their positions in the conference;
that's enough to scare even the most
confident Wolverine fan into fearing
some trouble in Columbus for Bo's Boys
come November.
Ohio State, by thekway, is not
worrying about its kicking game. Tom
Orosz averaged 41.5 per punt in 1979,

while placekicker Vlade Janakievski
booted 18 of 21 field goals through the
uprights.
The schedule is moderate in difficulty:
Syracuse and Arizona State are far
from pushovers, while UCLA, also
barred from post-season play, is much
improved and a consistent Top Twenty
pre-season selection. But the Buckeyes
entertain all three teams in Columbus.
In addition to the home-fried non-
conference schedule and the absence of
Purdue from the Big Ten slate, the
Buckeyes also enjoy the luxury of
playing the conference's other would-be
champions-Indiana and Michigan-at
home.
Purdue
The golden arm of Mark Herrmann
is back for a fourth season, but if Pur-
due (the Big Ten's winningest team.

over the past two campaigns) is to
reach that elusive Rose Bowl, it will
have to fill some holes in its defense.
Defensive end Keena Turner and
middle guard Ken Loushin, both All-
Americans, have graduated, as have
quality performers Kevin Motts

Mark Herrmann
(linebacker), Marcus Jackson (tackle),
and Wayne Smith (cornerback).
HEAD COACH Jim Young finds some
consolation in the forms of All-
American tackle Calvin Clark and
linebacker Tom Kingsburgy, who led
the Boilermakers in tackles during 1979
with 125. Despite the presence of these
two individuals, the Purdue defense is
very suspect up front. There are no
doubts about the secondary, though, as
cornerback Bill Kay (seven intercep-
tions in '79) and strong safety Tim
Seneff head a strong cast.
As long as Herrmann's skinny frame
remains functional, Purdue should be
able to move the football on anyone.
The 6-5 Heisman trophy candidate out
of Indianapolis already has passed for
more yards than any other quarterback
in conference history. And Herrmann's
two favorite receivers, tight end Dave
Young and split end Bart Burrell, will
be back to haul in his aerials.

Purdue can run the ball, too, with
senior fullback John Macon and any of
four able tailbacks setting up behind
Herrmann. The offensive line lost All-
American tackle Steve McKenzie to
graduation, but his replacement, 6-6,
265-pound sophomore Tom Jelesky, is
All-Big Ten material.
Purdue's kicking game, a major
weakness in 1979, is unsettled again this
season.
Wisconsin
As long 'as Wisconsin states that its
football team is in a rebuilding period,
nobody will ever call them a major
disappointment. Problem is, the
Badgers seem to have been rebuilding
for the last decade or so.
Coach Dave McClain has once again
harked the cry of the youth movement
for this fall, explaining that the bumper
crop of freshmen who saw a good deal
of game time last season are still learn-
ing the rigors of Big Ten football. As
long as McClain gives us the word, we'll
conveniently tuck his squad in the
"second division" of the Big Ten stan-
dings.
THE BADGERS ranked seventh in
offense and ninth in defense in the con-
ference in 1979, and there's little reason
to believe they'll improve substantially
on those rankings this fall. Quarterback
John Josten, a junior who missed most
of last season with a broken ankle, will
get the starting nod when Wisconsin
opens at homenagainst Purdue Septem-
ber 13.
The running game is strictly
questionable. All-Big Ten fullback
Dave Mohapp gained slightly more
than 600 yards, but is more suited to
blocking than carrying the ball. The
Badgers boast of speedsters Chucky
Davis and Troy King at the
tailback-however, neither Davis nor
King have much experience.
Split end Tim Stracka (25 receptions
in '79) is the only proven performer in a
talent-thin receiving corps. Look for
Wisconsin to run more and pass less as
Mohapp becomes a fulcrum for most of-
fensive operations. And don't be sur-
prised if Jeff Nault, the Escanaba,
Mich. freshman who escaped Bo
Schembechler's recruiting grasp, earns
himself a starting tight end spot.
Wisconsin's defense IS its
linebacking corps, consisting of All-Big
Ten pick Dick Ahrens, Dave Levenick
and leading tackler Larry Spurlin. The
line and secondary consist mainly of
sophomores who have had extensive
game experience, but who lack the
strength of other linemen in the con-
ference.
