Explosive Irish ice


A Comedy of Errors - a play.
Scene: Yost Ice Arena before
a full house. Plot: Fine exam-
pie of Greek Tragedy.
Synopsis: In ACT I the home town
heroes - the Michigan Wolverines,
look like a vaudeville team. Mistakes
and slow play yield the villians-Notre
Dame - a 3-0 lead.
In ACT II, the heroes come out of the
locker room looking like a new team..
They hustle and battle back to make the
score 5-4.
But Act III proves a surprise as the
Wolverines return to their first period
antics and watch four unanswered
goals fly into their net. As the curtain
falls, the final score is 9-4 in favor of the
Notre Dame Villains.
Michigan played the first period -
right from the opening face-off - in a
kind of stupor. Notre Dame controlled
the puck from the first click of the
scoreboard clock and just 13 seconds
later notched the first of three goals in
the period. Irish center Dave Poulin,
perched in the slot, smashed a deflection
off of Wolverine goalie Peter Mason's
stick into the net at :13 to open the
The Wolverines continued to play
slipshod hockey as the period
progressed, and the impotent Michigan
powerplay proved to be more advan-

AT 10:59 Notre Dame left wing Dan
Collard was whistled for interference.
In the ensuing Michigan powerless
play, Notre Dame scored not one, but
two shorthanded goals.
The first came at 11:45, when the
Irish broke around the Michigan defen-
se and on a two-on-one break and right
wing Jeff Logan fired the puck clean in-
to the net.
The second Irish shorthanded goal
was a weak slapshot from the top of the
face off circle to Mason's left by Jim
Brown. The puck hit Mason's glove
and deflected between his legs trickling
into the net. That was Mason's last at-
temtped save of the night. Wolverine
head coach John Giordano immediatley
replaced him with freshman Jon

today's quarterfinals of the Penn Nike
Indoor Singles Championships. Also
advancing in the, tournament, which
began yesterday at the Liberty Racquet
Club and features players from Big Ten
schools, were Wolverines Bill Godfrey
and Thor DeBryn. The Blue's Tom
Haney was not so fortunate, however,
losing in the second round.
Mees defeated Mark Friedman of
Purdue and Ohio State's Mark Redding
in straight sets to move into a quarter-
final match today with Mike Hoeger of
Minnesota. 'Godfrey also won his first
two matches and meets last year's Big
Ten champion at the number one
singles, Ernie Fernandez of-Ohio State.

Brown cracked a slapshot that deflec-
ted off of Elliott's pads and in for the
score. Then Notre Dame padded their
three goal lead to 5-1 with yet another
goal on a textbook perfect two-on-one
break. Veteran left wing Bill Rothstein
passed to Poulin in front of the net, and
Poulin immediately put the puck away.
THEN THE comeback. The
Wolverines were not ready to lay down.
Michigan's first goal in a series of
several came when center Joe Milburn
took a pass at the blue line from
defesneman Steve Richmond. He
skated quickly around an Irish defpn-

shot from ten feet that found its way

A reporter asks, "How would you rate

He answers, "Poor. Poor. Poor."

After defeating Pittsburgh before the
Christmas break the Michigan
women's swim team is looking for the
identical performance when they meet
a strong Ohio State outfit today at Matt
Mann pool. It will be the first dual meet
versus the Buckeyes in ten years and
Michigan head coach Stu Isaac feels
that-his team will prevail over what he
calls a tough team.
Although the women's team did not
take more first places than Pitt, they
were able to win it by accepting more
second and third places, which is what
coach Isaac is hoping for today.
ISAAC IS looking for strong perfor-
mances from freshman Tami Paumier,
a breastroker who has been able to help
her teammates thus far, and Denise

Stuntzner, a sophomore freestyler.
Cahill will lead the Wolverines in the
distance freestyle events and in the 400
yard individual medley and in the 200
yard butterfly, it will be sophomore
Melinda Copp.
With this top Big Ten caliber swim-
ming for him, Isaac feels "it'll be the
best meet." Although the Wolverine
tankers have a strong lineup the OSU
team does also.
"We'll have two nationally-ranked
diving teams here, and although they
(OSU) may have better divers, we'll
make up for it in our swimming," said
DUE TO THE fact that each in-
dividual can only swim in three events
in dual meets, Isaac is intending to
switch the lineup around so that the

women can decide on which five events
they will participate in for the Big Tens,
where they are able to swim in that
many events.
In the diving competition, the
Wolverines are sending Diane Dudeck
and Vicki Kimball against national
champions Debbie Rush and Sherry
Hanstein. I
"The key for us to win is that we can
not necessarily take firsts but also that
we can take the second and thirds like
we did against Pittsburgh. Last meet
we swam what we were capable of
swimming and I hope we can do the
same," replied Isaac.
Besides coming off the defeat of the
Panthers, Isaac has also felt that their
practice during the break will benefit
their results.

Shapiro said he was pleased with
Schembechler's decision. "I am gratified,
as I am certain that all my colleagues,
the University's alumni and friends are,
that Mr. Schembechler has decided to
stay on here at Michigan as the
Wolverines' coach," he said. "His
record here - as the builder of a foot-
ball program of quality and integrity
has been exemplary."
CHAIRMAN OF the Board of Regents
at Texas A&M, H.R. "Bum" Bright,
could not be reached for comment on
Schembechler's refusal. Bo, however,
indicated that he had spoken with him
and that the Dallas businessman's reac-
tion was not an upbeat one.
"He's disappointed, like you might
expect," Schembechler said, "because
they put a lot of effort into trying to get
me. (But) the Michigan family
responded well (by upping his salary).
There'll always be bread on the table at
my house."

e o away
Defensive coordinator Bill McCar-
tney, a Schembechler assistant for
eight seasons, was not as surprised as
most that Bo was going to stay in Ann
"The longer it went on, the more sure
we were that he was going to stay,"
McCartney said after the announ-
cement. "I would have gone with him
(to Texas A&M). This speaks a lot for
the Michigan tradition and the
Michigan family and all that it stands
Both Schembechler and Canham in-,
dicated that, upon retirement of the lat-
ter, Schembechler could well be in line
for the job of athletic director.
"I felt, all the way down the line, that
he'd take my place," Canham said. "It
depends on how we both feel seven
years from now. We've talked about
that the last three years."
Schembechler said that he was in no
hurry to leave the playing field,
however. "I feel I've got about 10
productive years (left) in coaching, and
I'm going to keep going," Bo said.
"There are some things, in the back of
my mind, that I want to accomplish
here at Michigan, some things that I
haven't accomplished.
"Don's said that all along, that when
he retires, he wants me to succeed him.
I have no written commitment. I think
there are those in the administration
who would like to see me in that job."

.- Wolverine head football coach
Bo Schembechler
That strong westerly wind felt in Ann'Arbor around 9:00 last night was not
the result of the -foul winter weather we are having, but rather it was
generated from the giant sigh of relief coming out of the Michigan Sports In-
formation Department.
Schembechler's decision was received with applause from some of the
media and Athletic Department representatives present, many of whom had
spent an eight-hour vigil at the Sports Information office awaiting final word
on "'The Decision."~
The word everyone expected from Schembechler was "good-bye." The 13-
year Wolverine mentor was practically offered the moon and stars by Texas
A&M to become its athletic director andhead coach. But Schembechler was
swayed by loyalty, or to steal a Ufeiism, "he saw those Maize and Blue dots
before his eyes." The prestige of Michigan overcame the big oil dollars of
Texas A&M.
Is the man crazy?
"In all my years I've never been much of a guy to go looking for economic
security and opportunities," an uncharacteristically emotional Schem-
bechler added. "I was almost flabbergasted when this opportunity presented
itself. It's more than your normal job offer. I felt I owed it to my family and
myself to take a longer look. Frankly, it took longer than I thought. But I
realized that there are just more important things than money."
Obviously, Bo is crazy-about Michigan. A person turning down a job offer
which consists of a higher pay scale is rare indeed. Success is all too often
measured by how miany digits follow the dollar sign. Schembechler refused
to let a great amount of money turn his head away from the thing's which
mattered most to him-and he must be respected for that.
The Michigan head football coaching position is one of those "dream jobs"
which most people would cherish. And who would want to leave a dream job?
Schembechler had plenty of factors going for him in his decision to stay. He
has one of the most secure coaching positions in all of sports, ,albeit Bear
Bryant and Ray Meyer. He and Michigan football have become synonomous
with the word excellence over the past decade, and no one is held in higher
esteem in this area than he. His followers are many and with his strong
desire to remain a Wolverine, those followers may wish to haveĀ°him
Saint Bo? Let's not go too far.
Although Bo wanted to stay, it is quite obvious that the mere threat of his
exodus to College Station (that's the metropolis where A&M is located)
caused a few extra gray hairs on Athletic Director Don Canham's scalp. The
AD looked slightly haggard as Schembechler began his press conference,as
if to hint that Bo had already begun house hunting down in'Texas.
"I'm not surprised, but pretty relieved," said Canham.
Canham and Schembechler met repeatedly through the afternoon and
evening yesterday, but it was not completely revealed what Canham offered
Schembechler. Schembechler admitted that he would receive an increase in
pay, not in the megabuck category as the A&M deal, but certainly enough to
keep him happy. Whether Michigan Stadium will be renamed Schembechler
Stadium remains to be seen, but Bo has gotten something special from his 13-
year association with Michigan.
Something which money can't buy.
