hoosiers drown tankers, 64-49

By JAMES THOMPSON.
Mhe Michigan men's swim team ran in-
the juggernaut it expected in
rigton last Friday night and was
feated by the Indiana Hoosiers, 64-49,
a hteet that for the Wolverines, was
couragingly close.
"We were competitive all the way
rough the meet," said Wolverine
>ach'Gus Stager. "But the depth of
ieir team showed up, and I think that's
hat beat us." Michigan earned first-
ace finishes in seven of the 13 events

but lacked a sufficient number of
second and third places to overcome
the Hoosiers..
THE WOLVERINES more than held
their own in the freestyle sprints, as
Mark Noetzel won the 50-yard free and
Fernando Canales captured the 100-
and 200-yard races.
"Although we didn't win, it was the
best performance I've seen our team do
down in Indiana since, my freshman
year (1978)," Canales said. The senior
Michigan standout was also part of the

scoring 400-yard freestyle relay which
included Noetzel, Tim Dudley, and Kir-
stan Vandersluis.
Wolverine tanker Bruce Gemmell
won the 200-yard backstroke. "I was
pleased with the way I swam, and I
think at this point in the season, I'm
right where I want to be," said Gem-
mell, who also placed third in the 200
individual medley behind a pair of
Ho6siers and swam in the 400 medley
relay which finished second, between
two Indiana quartets.
"GEMMELL SWAM a good IM, but it
wasn't what we needed," said Stager.
The Michigan tankers nabbed a
second in the 400-yard medley relay,
while Indiana took first and third. In
the 1,000-yard freestyle, the
Wolverines' Kevin Williamson came in
second.
Dudley, Michigan's top butterflier,
finished third behind a couple of high-
caliber Indiana swimmers.
TJIE WOLVERINES' Ron Merriott
and the Hoosiers' Tim Bollinger, two
national champion divers and best
friends as well, squared off in the
diving competition, with Merriott
barely pulling off victories in both the
one-'and three-meter events.
APV Top Twenty

"It was hard to go into his home pool
and dive against him," said Merriott,
"but I felt good about my performance.
With the season at its halfway mark,
Canales feels that the Michigan squad's
positive attitude is indicative of things
to come. "I think it's a good indicator
of how the rest of the season will end
up," he said. "Everyone has done a
good job thus far to help the team."
The tankers travel to Eastern
Michigan for a dual meet this Saturday.

'ily Does Champaign' . .

.. held over two days

One for the road!" I yelled.
No, I wasn't in a bar, although the way the Woeful-rine basketball season
had gone so far, the state of inebriation might be as good as any other state in
the Union.
Those were my sentiments as I travelled with two Daily basketball
sciibes, Larry Freed and Bob Wojnowski, through the "heartlands of
America" to Champaign. hIeartlands call to mind endless visions of cattle
grazing, and for goodness sake, keep your car windows rolled up.
But I didn't care, for this was my swan song. My final road trip as college
eporter, Big Ten souvenir collector, and campus tavern critic. Mind you,,
circling the Midwest doesn't make one a renowned globe-trotter, but there's
a special feeling, as a student, from visiting an opponent's campus. And I
needed one last fix.
I got fixed alright-up to my thighs in snow.
Combine a two-foot snowfall, a 50-mile-an hour breeze, a state police ban
on all highway traffic, and five studly gents confined to a hotel, and it all ad-
ds' up to "Daily Does Champaign"-edited version, rated R, no one sober
admitted.
The fact that I was stranded with Freed and Wojnowski for two days
longer than anticipated was harrowing enough. But add two of Freed's com-
panions, Steve Levine-and Craig Brown, to the group of castaways, and the
dea of justifiable homicide loomed large in my near future.
Get drunk, get lucky
Since none of us knew how long we might be stalled in Champaign, in a
hotel which was not permitting outgoing phone service and was cutting back
on heat, it was apparent that emergency food supplies were needed.
Well, you know that boys will be boys. The supplies consisted of a bag of
potato chips, a jar of peanuts, a package of cookies, and enough embalming
Itid to keep the five of us stiff until the spring thaw-in June.
With that in mind, we began to heed The Two Commandments of college
life. One, get drunk. Two, get lucky.
Achieving the former was simple. As for the latter, well :. .
"Craig! You said that there were 20,000 coeds on this campus! "raged an
anxious Levine. "Tell me, then, why five guys can't get lucky!"
- What.Levine failed to realize was that, of the 20,000 coeds at Illinois, only
four had two legs and no collar. As exaggerated as that may seem, it was ob-
vious that the prospects were extremely bleak.
Of course, there were the Illinettes, 36 somewhat scantly clad-and talen-
ted-young ladies whose sole prpose is to show the basketball audience the"
numerous ways they can shake their hips. The highlight of their act was
when the baton twirler, dressed in a low-cut, high-applause top, dropped her
baton. Her act of picking up the stick drew more cheers than the Illinois vic-
tory.
Naturally, I didn't notice that. Such entertainment is way down my list of
priorities-at least second or third ... second.
If that wasn't enough, one of my partners in crime at the-Daily, a sports
editor who will remain nameless, gave me some information on one of the
recreational activities in Champaign.
"Look for this Tri Delt named Beth Ann .. . Beth Ann Illini."
Wojnowski seemed possessed in the quest for the mysterious Beth Ann.
Finally, with a couple pitchers of courage inside his system, Wojnowski"
sought out the Tri Delt house.
'If Beth Ann has any friends, make sure you tell her about us," shouted
Levine from outside as Wojnowski and I ventured to the door.
Unfortunately, Beth Ann had graduated and moved to Chicago. Luckily
though, we met a friendly lush, er, lady gamed Sharon. Enough said.
No longer content with our own game of "Sorority Rush," we decided to
wait out the remainder of our unexpected stay staring at each other's blank
expressions in between hands of poker. Talk about contracting " abin
fever."
When the state police finally allowed traffic to depart from Champaign, I
left-with mixed feelings. It was great to get out of there, but that degree of
uncertainty was what made all those road trips worthwhile.
Trapped in a zoo for three days, I cannot think of a more fitting finish-to
my Daily career.
