Blue defense too
generous this year,

an

The Michigan defense, on what was
considered a good day Saturday, held
Minnesota to just 14 points.
H-mmmmmmmmmm.
ON A GOOD day in 1975 or
thereabout, the Wolverines would have
hatched their opponents' goose egg-as
a matter of fact, the adversary
wouldn't even come close to scoring a
touchdown, lest move the pigskin
beyond the midfield stripe.
The undesirable change in numbers
over time has Bo Schembechler con-
cerned about facing explosive offensive
firepower, which quarterbck Dave
Wilson and the rest of the Illinois attack
have displayed the first six weeks of the
season.
Wilson, who has been fighting a two-
month battle against the Big Ten over
his eligibilty, shattered conference
records for passing attempts, com-
pletions, and yards Saturday when he
hit on 35 of 58 passes for 425 yards in the

games he has already passed for more
than 1500 yards, completing nearly 55
percent of his tosses.
IRONICALLY, THE Wolverines lead
the Big Ten in most defensive
categories, but Schembechler main-
tains that "our defense has to improve
if we want to be a factor."

the time that means going for the big'
play."
He added that unlike other teams, in-
cluding Minnesota (which the
Wolverines defeated 37-14), Michigan's
defense "does not send everyone in there
(at the quarterback)."

ABC is planning to telecast the Michigan-Illinois game'
as one of its regional broadcasts. Kickoff has been moved
back to 12:35 p.m., but that starting time is still subject
to change.

offer some insights into the degree to
which it has become more vulnerable to
opposing offenses. During the 1970's
Michigan yielded an average of 106.$
rushing yards, 226.3 total yards, and
8.04 points per game. This season, the
Blue defense has allowed opponents an
average of 128.3 rushing yards, 280.8
total yards, and 17.7 points per game.
While Schembechler has downplayed
the effect of injuries upon defensive
performance, he couldn't help but
shake his head when yet another
Michigan defender, strong side half
back Marion Body, went down with a
bruised knee in the Little Brown Jug
matchup against the Golden Gophers.
Body's status is considered "day-to-
day," and Schembechler said he won't
know if the Detroit junior will be
available for Saturday's game until
later in the week.

In an effort to explain the tendency of
1980's Big Ten teams to be more
generous on the defensive side, Schem-
bechler told reporters at yesterday's
media luncheon that "teams apparen-
tly feel they have to play much more
aggressively defensively, and much of

BUT HE ALSO said that despite his
team's use of a more balanced defen-
sive concept, "I'm very much concer-
ned about us stopping other teams."

GRIDDE
November's election is getting closer
and people are debating who will win
and who will lose. The present polls are
so varied that it seems like anybody
could run for the presidency and have a
chance of winning. If for some strange
reason you think that Reagan, Carter,
and Anderson are the best possible,
candidates for presidentand you don't
think you can possibly beat them out for
the job, then at least try for second best.
This week's Gridde Picks! Last week's
lucky winner was Dave Gabis of South
Quad who correctly predicted 17 of 20
games. If you want to win this week's
free one-item pizza from Pizza Bob's,
get your votes in to The Daily at 420
Maynard Street before midnight
Friday.

.. .AND IN THIS
CORNER . . .
Mark Mihanovic
An open letter to University President Harold Shapiro and Athletic
Director Don Canham.. .
Dear Sirs:
The events of the past week concerning the hazing of freshmen hockey
players (and one in particular), the subsequent punishments levied against
certain individuals with regard to these hazings, and the newspaper accoun-
ts of both, have been confusing and disenchanting, to say the least. And I
must respectfully conclude that the actions which the two of you took in an
attempt to resolve the matter only served to confuse and disenchant me
more.
President Shapiro, your initial reaction to the incident, in which one in-
dividual was on the receiving end of a particularly punishing initiation
ceremony, was one of indifference; in your eyes, the matter was "not
serious." Several hours later you termed the players' behavior "deplorable"
and "reprehensible." Which was it, President Shapiro? Did you change your
position after learning more about the matter? Or did you switch stances
only after realizing that the media and many in the University community
would self-righteously proclaim moral indignation at this freshman hazing
ceremony? Did you determine that you would have to condemn.the actions of
the involved players, to save face and thus shed yourself of any of the
responsibility?
Mr. Canham, why did you decline to take at leastaportion of the blame
for the fact that, in this instance, the hazing ritual was carried to an ex-
treme? Why did you feel that it was necessary to suspend three, and only
three players from this past weekend's series, thereby implying that they,
and they alone, were at fault for what happenied? Why is it that when five
football players were suspended for alleged drug violations, you allowed Bo
Schembechler to handle it his way, but in this instance you deemed it
necessary to-step in and take action yourself? Do you trust Bo to handle
disciplinary situations more than you do hockey coaches Wilf Martin and
John Giordano?
I am amazed that after all the years the two of you have been integrally in-
volved with the University, you would express such astonishment and anger
with regard to the severity of the hazing process. The instance in question
was isolated only in the fact that the hazing was perhaps (though not
necessarily) taken to a greater extreme than previous hazings and that the
recipient was less able to tolerate it than others have been. The hazing ritual,
has been a tradition for years, not only among hockey team members, but,
among "pledges" at various fraternities, as well.
I am not about to condone the actions of the hockey players on the night
of October 12, but I am not about to condemn them, either: My personal
opinion is that the hazing process is one of those useless rituals borne of
tradition that should have been cast aside years ago. I also feel that the
hockey playes took it one step too far in a stupid fashion.
But for the two of you, the media, and so many others to plead ignorance
and implicate a few select individuals as the root of the problem is
hypocritical. I have heard "hazing stories" in which the "hazee" was
degraded to an even greater extent than that freshman hockey player, and I
find it hard to believe that you, President Shapiro, and you, Mr. Canham,
haven't heard the same.
The standard reaction to these anecdotes is one of, "Those guys are
crazy," a shake of the head, and a shrug of the shoulders. But now someone
incurs greater injury than is usual, and everybody is up in arms, calling for
peoples' heads. And three senior hockey players bear the brunt of the
negative reaction, the fact that they were unable to play in a couple of games
not nearly as damaging as the harm that was done to their reputations via
the obvious implications.
Again, those involved in the initiation of the freshmen hockey players
acted with stupidity. But for the two of you to single out a few individuals as
the cause is, quite simply, wrong. Certainly a punishment was in order for
those directly involved with the incident. However, the blame should not be
heaped upon those few while the rest of us return to our self-righteous shells
The blame rests on many shoulders. Including the men at the top.
Sincerely,
Mark Mihanovic
