Wisconsin icers whip
McCrimmon nets two in
By MARTHA CRALL
The Michigan Wolverines and Wisconsin
Badgers took a seesaw battle into the third
period of their hockey game last night at Yost Ice
Arena, with the Badgers coming out on top, 5-3.
Before a crowd of 4,129, Wisconsin put the
game away with two third period goals, breaking
a 3-3 tie.
At 4:35 in the third, Badger defenseman Jay
McFarlane, with assists from Pat Ethier and
Lexi Doner, took a shot from the point which
caught Michigan goalie Paul Fricker sideways,
and the puck slid right across Fricker's chest
and into the net, sending the Badgers ahead, 4-3.
Only 1:20 later, when given a power play op-
portunity, the Badgers scored again on a slap
shot by.junior right winger Pete Johnson, who
was assisted by Theran Welsh and Ron Vincent.
Acting Wolverine coach John Giordano said af-
ter the game, "In the third period, we didn't
score on the power plays, we're just not that
Scoring started early in the game, with
Michigan jumping ahead at 1:12 when freshman
left winger Kelly McCrimmon skated down the
right side and shot the puck past first-year
Badger goalie, Terry Kleisinger, with assists
from sophomore center Brad Tippett and defen-
seman Steve Richmond.
In the next 40 seconds, the Wolverines posed
two more serious threats. The attack was stifled
when Michigan's Dennis May was whistled for
charging at 1:55.
The Badgers wasted no time in scoring on the
power play when at 2:48, sophomore left winger
Doner, assisted by Scott Lecy and Welsh, rifled a
shot which hit Fricker in the face mask. The shot
first bounced in front of the net, then hit Fricker
squarely in the mask and trickled into the net.
The action continued to heat up until freshman
Wisconsin center John Newberry crashed into
two Michigan players after p

Wolverine wrestlers debut at Ohio Open
By CHUCK JAFFE
It has taken a lot of sweat and deter-
mination, but coach Dale Bahr and the
wrestling team are finally ready to
make their season debut this weekend
in the Ohio Open. As the Wolverines will
face many of their Big Ten rivals, Bahr
views the tournament as an indication
of what lies ahead for his grapplers.
"We'll have a tough, aggressive team
capable of going with anybody," Bahr
said. "We're competitive in every
weight class.Our balance is much bet-
ter than last year." Bahr did cite one
spot of worry for the team, and that
falls in the depth category.
"Depth will be a big problem for us,"
Bahr said, "especially at 118 and
heavyweight. We still' do not have the
overall depth I'd like to see."
The. team's lineup has changed
drastically from last year, as three
newcomers will start for Michigan.
Bahr, who described the lineup as
"solid from top to bottom" will test his
new team in Ohio, where he expects it
to do well.m
Starting off for the Wolverines at 118
pounds is freshman Joe McFarland.
Coach Bahr says McFarland "has a
bright future at Michigan," and he ex-
pects a solid performance in today's
At 126 pounds, there has been a
change in the lineup.. Senior Jim
Mathias, last, year's starter, has been
replaced by freshman Mike
DerGarabedian. The two wrestlers bat-
tled three times during "wrestle-offs"
with DerGarabedian the eventual win-
ner, two matches to one.
At 134 pounds, Bahr will send Bob
Siar against the competition. Siar, a
sophomore, is coming off knee surgery,
but says he is fully recovered.
The 142-pound weight class has been
another in which there is fierce com-
petition among teammates. Mark
Pearson gained the starting job by
defeating Lou Milani. Pearson, who
says his goal this year is to "reach his
potential," says Milani "is easily as
tough as the competition the team
faces. Maybe tougher."
Tim Fagan will be the team's point
producer in the 150 pound weight class.
Fagan, a sophomore, has "great poten-
tial," according to Bahr.
John Beljan returns for his third year
of competition at Michigan, starting in
the 158-pound weight class. Beljan feels
he has improved both mentally and
physically from last year.
At 167 pounds, Bahr will send Nemir
Nadhir. "I'm looking for great' things
out of him," Bahr said. "He has been
our most improved wrestler."
The grapplers are as solid as a rock
at 177. That is where Rob "The Rock"
Rechsteiner will make his Michigan
debut. Rechsteiner, who placed fourth
in the Junior College National Tour-
nament last year, is a sophomore tran-
sfer student from Grand .Rapids- Junior
Senior Pat McKay will start for the,
Wolverines at 190-pounds. McKay and
his back-up, Dean Rehberger,were two
more grapplers who had to battle it out
for the starting position.
The anchor of the Wolverines' lineup
is 6-5, 255-pound Eric Klasson. Klasson,
the defending Big Ten heavyweight
champion, is cautious about the season
ahead. "A lot of my performance
depends on whether or not I stay
healthy," co-captain Klasson said, in
reference to his necent-knee problems.
"If everything gods well for me, I can
have a good season, but the most im-
portant thing to me would be for the
team to reach its potential. I think we
can do that."

ACTUALLY, THE Oklahoma-
Nebraska game may not decide the Big
Eight's Orange Bowl represen-
tative-unless Nebraska wins.
Although the arch-rivals are tied with 6-
0 league records, Nebraska is 9-1
overall to Oklahoma's 7-2. The Orange
Bowl has said that Oklahoma must beat
both Nebraska and also Oklahoma
State a week hence to get to Miami.
The rival mentors, OU's Barry Swit-
zer and NU's Tom Osborne, became
head coaches together in 1973. Since
then, Switzer has won seven of eight
meetings-Oklahoma avenged a 1978
regular-season loss to Nebraska by
defeating the Cornhuskers in an Orange
Bowl rematch-but he's a 81/-point un-
derdog this time.
One reason might be that Switzer
goes around saying things like,
"Everybody's been beaten except
Georgia and there's no way Georgia
has the physical talent Nebraska has. If
Nebraska and Georgia were unbeaten,
who in the world do you think would
have all the No. 1 votes?"
OKLAHOMA LOST its last visit to

.. . highstepping 'Husker
2 the end zone for a possible winning
touchdown, fumbled at the Nebraska 3-
yard line late in the game, the Sooners'
sixth lost fumble that day.
"Nebraska probably is the best team
in the nation right now," says Switzer.
"Their defense is intimidating. Offen-
sively, they seem more diversified than
they have been in the past. They are
running more option plays with their
three fine tailbacks and getting to the
"It's for all the marbles, just like it
usually is," says Osborne, who ob-
viously has his own personal cliche
writer. "I'm sure Oklahoma will be the
best team we've played this year." Are
you listening, Florida State?
