scouts were not impressed by the num-

contact the Wolverines' all-time home

time, Paciorek already decided to

Hall credited the development to
Paciorek's diligence. "He's the guy
who did all the work," said the third-
year assistant. "He'd show up to prac-

Ideal for Michigan, which won its 14th
straight game, and for Paciorek, who
made himself just that much more at-
tractive to the professional scouts.
