By DAN NEWMAN
With UPI reports
Michigan center George Lilja yester-
Say was named to United Press Inter-
national's 1980 All-America college
football second team, while Wolverines
Anthony Carter and Andy Cannavino
garnered honorary mention honors.
"Any time you make first or second
team All-american, it's a great honor,"
said Lilja, who earlier in the week was
named to AP's third team. "The only
thing I candrai fromthe selection is
' at they think I'm the second best cen-
r (behind Notre Dame's John Scully)
in the nation, which is quite an accom-
plishment."
The 1981 Rose Bowl will mark Lilja's
final appearance in a Michigan
uniform. The senior hopes that he will
then be highly considered by
professional teams and selected early
in the NPL draft.
"It (the selection to UPI's second
team) gives me some incentive to work
even harder," said the 255 pound cen-
*r. "I never dreamed of such an honor
Mack in high school."

The Michigan women's gymnastics
team will be without the services of its
top two tumblers in its season opener
tonight with Kent State and Eastern
Michigan in Ypsilanti.
PThe tumblers will, be at an obvious
disadvantage, competing without their
top two all-arounders, junior Teresa
Bertoncin, and freshman Kathy Beck-
with. The pair will be competing in the
Stanford Invitational, a pairs com-
petition, against Pacific-10 opponents
Stanford, California and Southern Cal.
This year's team sports only nine
members, one of which is freshman
Grechen Tafel, who will not be par-
ticipating because of a leg injury. Six
members are needed to compete in
each meet. Four of these six must be
"all-arounders," performing in all four
events: sidehorse vaulting, uneven
parallel bars, balance beam and floor
exercise.
ACCORDING TO head coach Sheri
Hyatt, the team's small size creates a
lack of depth on the squad. "If anyone'
gets injured this season," said Hyatt,

"we will be in serious trouble."
Tonight's meet will mark the first
time the Wolverines will compete under
the newly implemented international
scoring system.
"This system has been used for years
in Europe," explained Hyatt. "Now,
since the Federation of International
Gymnastics has endorsed it, the system
will be standard in all college and high
school meets."
BECAUSE SCORING under the new
system is considerably more rigid and
detailed,-Hyatt said she expects to see
an overall drop in team scores from
previous years. Unlike the previous
system, it is now impossible to score
above a perfect ten.
Hyatt added that it would be close to
impossible for most of the women to
tally a ten because their routines lack
the high level of difficulty needed to
qualify for a ten rating. "The scoring
system is very complicated," said
Hyatt. "In essence, to achieve a perfect
score, the routines must embody a
number of highly rated moves. Only
two of the women have such routines."
Despite the new scoring system and

the absence of Bertoncin an4 Beckwith,
Hyatt remains optimistic. "Since this Is
the first meet, I am a little unsure of
what to expect. Things looked good in
inner-squad competition. If we are able

to execute our routines, we should do
well," she said.
Last year, the Wolverines lost to Kent
State at the regionals and to Eastern in
the state competition. Hyatt said that
she would like to use this meet to even
the score with both of them.
