comeback last night at BGSU Ice

Falcons a 3-2 win.
The Wilson score negated a two-goal
Michigan comeback, which culminated
in Steve Richmond's game-tieing slap-
shot with 0:38 seconds left in regulation.

shot at Charco, but the Falcon goalie
answered with kick save after kick
save. After a minute and a half of daz-
zling shots and saves, the power play
ended and Michigan came up empty.
The Wolverines were given a second
chance to tie when, with 4:06 left to
play, a fight broke out on the board.
Each team lost a pair of skaters to
penalties as a result of the skirmish and
they were playing three on three.
Then Bowling Green's Brian
MacLellan was penalized at 16:28 for
boarding. As the clock ran down to the
two minute mark the Wolverines
delayed power play began. Then Rich-
mond scored the tieing goal with 38
seconds left to play.
THE FIRST PERIOD was dominated
by the Falcons, who attempted 31 shots
on goal to Michigan's 18. The first and
only goal of the period came when
Bowling Green defenseman Ron Megan
fired a slap shot from just in front of the
blue line and past Fricker for a 1-0 lead.
Michigan came out more
aggressivley in the second period. But
despite three golden opportunities in
front of the net during their first power
play, the Wolverines were unable to
THE FALCONS INCREASED their
lead to 2-0 when McPhee scored his
second goal of the day on a slapshot
from the far right wing.
The Wolverines finally got on the
board at the 16:48 mark when Gordie
Hampson flipped a wrist shot past
Charco into the net. The assists were

'M' GRIDDERS TO FACE TEST ON GRASS:
Gophers can cut it close
By STAN BRADBURY
Special to the Daily
MINNEAPOLIS-Every Michigan fan remembers the
last time the Wolverines traveled to Minnesota to play the
Golden Gophers in Memorial Stadium. The year was 1977 and.
the high flying Wolverines were 6-0 and ranked number one
n the nation.
After the game, the only zero associated with Michigan
was the one on the scoreboard next to its name. The Golden
Gophers shut out Michigan, 16-10, the first time since 1967
that the Wolverines had been blanked, and the only time Bo
Schembechler was ever whitewashed.
It was one of Michigan's greatest offenses that year: Rick
Leach, Russell Davis, Harlan Huckelby, Mark Donahue,
Walt Downing and Co. How could the mediocre Gophers
dominate that squad so completely?
It was simple. It was plain old, All-American, natural,
home grown, bona fide, real living and growing green as it
comes, G-R-A-S-S. Grass is the dirtiest five letter word in the,
Michigan football dictionary. It is synonomous with losing.
Since 1976 the Wolverines have played 11 games on grass.
On the real stuff their record is a paltry 3-8. During that same
time span, Michigan has played 11 away games on synthetic
surfaces, and its record is a perfect 11-0.
Michigan has a definite weakness playing on the natural
grass surface, a big reason Schembechler is not taking
today's game lightly.
"This will be another tough game," said Bo. "We have to
nderstand that we aren't in a position to look past anyone. I
and the entire coaching staff strongly feel that Minnesota will
offer us a big challenge."
Offensive line coach Paul Schudel discussed the team's
preparation for playing on grass. "We practice a little on the
grass, but basically we work off the Tartan. The kids are
much more accustomed to it." However, Schudel added,
"Now I don't think grass bothers us as much as it did
Grass or no grass, the Golden Gophers are capable of put-
ting up a good fight.
"I respect Minnesota a great deal due to the fact that in
their last home game (Sept. 27), they trailed an outstanding
team by just three points, 10-7, entering the fourth period,"
said Schembechler. "That team was USC (Southern Califor-
nia), and everyone knows what a solid squad they have."
The 24-7 loss to the Trojans is one of three this year for
Minnesota, as they also lost road games to Ohio State, 47-0,
and Purdue, 21-7. The Gophers two wins have come at home
against Ohio, 38-14, and at Northwestern, 49-21.
"This is a very young Minnesota team," Bo said. "They
might very well be the youngest squad in the Big Ten, but
they are playing with a lot of spirit and emotion.
"They have also been coming on as the season has
progressed, just like Michigan State," Bo added.
The Gophers are led by their offensive backs Marion Bar-
ber and Gary White. Barber, a senior tailback from Detroit,
was all Big Ten as a sophomore but was hampered by in-
juries last season, rushing for only 526 yards. White rambled
for 861 yards last season from his fullback position but
missed the Michigan game which the Wolverines won, 31-21.
In the Minnesota game last year,- Mark Carlson rewrote
the Gopher record book, attempting 51 passes (completing
27) and gaining 339 yards through the air.
But Carlson has since graduated and he has been replaced
by coach Joe Salem's freshman son, Tim. The younger Salem
has not done a spectacular job, but Dad still is going with him
despite seven interceptions and one touchdown.
What won the game for the Wolverines last fall was a
cranked up running game which totaled 537 yards. 194 were
credited to Butch Woolfolk, who will get the starting nod
today over the injury-sidelined Lawrence Ricks.
Schudel said the Gophers will run a "split four look, which
will be quite a different look from what Michigan has seen in
Only the very knowledgeable in football know what a split-
four is, and if Michigan will be able to handle the
arrangement. Perhaps the split-four is just a fancy way of
,cutting the grass.

BIG TEN ADVANCE
Hoosiers look to pass the Bucks
By MIKE BRADLEY
While Michigan and Minnesota tangle
for possession of the Little Brown Jug,
the. rest of the Big Ten will be swinging
into their second full week of conferen-
:e play, as the race for the roses
becomes more heated.
The Big Ten will showcase two of the
nation's top quarterbacks this weekend
when Indiana travels to Columbus to
take on Ohio State. The Buckeyes,
paced by junior standout Art
Schlichter, are fresh off of a 63-0
pasting of Northwestern, while Indiana
sports a 4-1 record and the conference's
assing leader, senior Tim Clifford.
BOTH TEAMS possess balanced at-
tacks, as evidenced by the fact that
OSU leads the league in total offense,
followed by the Hoosiers. Indiana's
Lonnie Johnson and Mike Harkrader
are in the, conference's top ten rushers,
and Ohio State's Calvin Murray is
The Hoosier secondary has intercep-
ted 12 passes thus far, but their rushing
defense has been suspect. The
Buckeyes' defensive troops have been
stingy, allowing only 11.8 points a
game, while ranking third in overall
IN CHAMPAIGN, two Big Ten un-
beatens clash as Purdue faces the Illini.
After slow non-league starts, both
squads have recovered and find them-
selves fighting for the conference
Total offense leader Mark Herrmann
has been calling most of Purdue's plays
recently, and coach Jim Young at-
tributes the Boilermakers'. new-found
success to that fact. Herrman's two
major targets, tight end Dave Young
and split end Bart Burrell are tied for
sixth place nationally in receptions.
Illinois can make use of the pass as
well with standout passer Dave Wilson,
who is second in the Big Ten in passing
yardage, but their defense has been hit
hard by injuries. Purdue, on the other
hand, has been steady in the trenches
and excellent in the secondary.
MICHIGAN STATE gets somewhat of
a break this week as the Spartans come
home to meet Wisconsin. Although the
Badgers lead the Big Ten in rushing
defense, their offense has been anemic.
Running Back John Williams is tenth in
the league with 300 yards, and John
Josten ranks eighth in passing.
Spartan quarterback John Leister
played quite well last week against the
Wolverines, and Steve Smith continues
to give MSU a rushing attack. Although
the Spartan defense has been hurting of
late, they should be able to put together
a consistent performance this weekend
against the Badgers.
A shellshocked Northwestern team
travels to Iowa to take on a hungry
Hawkeye squad. Wildcat quarterback
Mike Kerrigan leads an offense that
ranks last in the conference.
ALTHOUGH THE Wildcats lead the
league in passing defense, they make
up for it by placing last in rushing
Iowa QB Phil Seuss is fifth in the con-
ference in passing, while tailback Jeff
Brown leads the Big Ten in rushing.
Although the Hawks' defense is ranked
fourth in the league, inability to put
points on the board is the major cause
for their 1-4 record. Look for them to
break out of their rut against the
