Spartan.
signal-
calling
situation
unsettled

By LARRY FREED
Over the past two seasons, quarterbacks such as
Ohio State's Art Schlichter and Purdue's Mark Herr-
mann have led a movement in the Big Ten which has
seen most of the league's teams go to the passing
game. Michigan" State is one team which has also
seen its program go full circle, unfortunately in
reverse.
While the rest of the Big Ten teams subscribed to
the "three yards and a cloud of dust" theory, the
Spartans were riding high on the arm of quarterback
Eddie Smith. MSU during Smith's tenure recorded a
16-7-1 mark including a first-place conference finish.
in 1q78. But since his departure, the Spartans have
had to rely on their ground game, while the rest of the
league took up Smith's cue and started venturing
through the air.
BERT VAUGHN was the first starter of the post-
Smith era, but he could not live up to the expectations
he set for himself in 1978, when he replaced the in-
jured Smith for several games. In his debut against
Syracuse, he led the Spartans to a 49-21 victory over
the Orangemen throwing for over 200 yards and two
touchdowns before suffering a shoulder separation
that kept him out the rest of the season.
Injuries again plagued Vaughn the following year

when his season ended with a shot to the kidney
during the Notre Dame game. Prior to being injured,
Vaughn had accummulated less-than-impressive
statistics for the Spartans (57 of 128 passes for 729 yar-
ds). The vacated quarterback spot was filled by
sophomore Bryan Clark, sor.. of Detroit Lions head
coach Monte Clark., Like Vaughn, Clark could not fill
the gap left by the graduated Smith, as it took him
five games before he led the Spartans to victory.
At the beginning of this season, Spartan coach
Muddy Waters admitted the quarterback spot was
still one of the team's key problem areas. And after
the first two games of the season, the Spartans have
proved this statement to be more than true. In those
two games the trio of Vaughn, Clark, and newcomer
John Leister has passed at only a 40 percent clip
which has placed them firmly at the bottom of the
conference.
WATERS WILL try to shake things up when he
sends Leister to start this weekend against Western
Michigan in the Spartans' home opener. Leister
threw the ball for the first time in his college career
when he took over for the injury-prone Vaughn during
last week's 35-7 loss to Oregon. In that game, he com-
pleted only three of 15 passes for a mere 30 yards, in
addition to throwing two interceptions. Despite these

unimpressive statistics, Waters is optimistic about
his young starter, saying, "He has enough experience
even at his young age to start for us."
Waters also hinted about further surprises in the
quarterbacking situation when he mentioned 6-2
freshman Addie Caddis might'see some playing time
during the season.
"I'm very impressed with him, but I don't want to
put him in a situation that is over his head. If we bring
him in, though, we might see some wide open
games," explained Waters.
ALTHOUGH LEISTER has received the starting
assignment, Clark and Vaughn (who is recovering
from bruised ribs) will probably see some action, ac-
cording to Waters.
Thus far, Vaughn has been the most consistent of
the three, completing 18 of 35 aerials for 210 yards in
his two outings, while Leister and Clark have a com-
bined mark of five of 22 for only 55 yards.
The inefficiency of Clark and Leister has placed
added pressure on the running game, which suffered
a severe blow this week when it lost starting fullback
Derek Hughes for the year with a knee injury. This
has left senior Steve Smith to carry the load for the
punchless Spartan attack.

Undergrad booters top grads, 4-1

By MIKE BRADLEY
Freshman Peter Herrmann's two
goals paved the way for Michigan's un-
dergraduate soccer club's 4-1 victory
over their arch-rival graduate com-
petitors Wednesday.
It was the first triumph this season
for coach Steve Olsen's team and
follows double setbacks to Oakland.
University and Goshen College.
The grads drew first blood when a
twenty yard shot slipped through the
fingers of freshman goalie Dave
Morgan. Neither team was able to

score after that until the end of the first
half when Herrman took a pass from
Stefan Mitkov off an indirect free kick,
pushed through the defense, and beat
goalie Jay Weiss to the left corner to tie
the score at one.
25 minutes of the second half expired
before another goal was tallied.
Freshman striker Rick Nieman pushed
the ball up the left side and beat Weiss
to the right upper corner from twelve
yards out to give the undergrads the
lead for keeps, 2-1.
Mitkov kicked home a winner of 20

yards and Herrmann posted his second
goal of the evening to complete the un-
dergrads' scoring.
Olsen believes that the key to victory
both Wednesday night and in upcoming
games is the strong defense that has
characterized Michigan soccer for the
past years. Senior fullbacks Joe
Daniels, Tom Cohen, Tim McVey, and
Paul Knight all' played well against the
graduates and must continue to do so if
the Wolverines are to enjoy any more
success.

HAPPY HOUR to Bruce Davidson takes away some of
Daily 5-8 p.m., the stability that is needed on offense.
Friday 3-8 p.m. Herrmann, Nieman, and Andy Patron
have impressed Olsen thus far, and
Herrmann is the leading scorer on the
DOU BLE-TROU BLE team with three goals.
The major problem that the
TG PARTY! 3-8 Wolverines have encountered is the at-
tainment of varsity status: Olsen said
Bar-B-Q Ribs 754 each that Don Canham has not set an exact
date for any decision on the matter, but
y h re-iterated that the only major
BLUE FRONT PERSUADERS detriment that they have found from
club status is the recruitment of fresh-
men. Nonetheless, Michigan still
remains one of the two teams in the Big
Ten not to have a varsity team.
