Fighting Illini get 'passing' marks

Non-conference foes seek rei

tContinued from Page 9)
Oliver Williams (38 catches) and Mike
Martin (34 catches). Miguel DeOliver,
Tim Brewster and Rich Siler will rotate
at tight end. Only one starter returns on
the offensive line in the person of tackle
Bob Stowe.
On defense, the Illini's strength will
be along the line. Returning defensive
line starters include Mark Butkus, Dan
Gregus, Don Thorp and Terry Cole.
IN THE secondary, Illinois returns
starters Charles Armstead, Dennis
Bishop and Larry Mosely. The position
that will see wholesale, changes this
year will be linebacker since all three
starters from last year have departed.

White knows that his offense will be
effective this year. He says that his
defense must come through, though, if
Illinois is to challenge for the conferen-
ce crown.
Should that happen, the joke will be
on Lee Corso and the rest of the Big
Ten. At that time, Mike White will be
the only one laughing.,
4. Minnesota
Minnesota's Golden Gophers are
finally coming in out of the cold-in
more ways than one.
This season the Gophers will be
moving into the brand new 62,000-seat
Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome and
they may also be moving out of the cold
and into the heat of the Big Ten race.
LAST YEAR, Minnesota was the only
team to defeat Big Ten co-champions
Iowa and Ohio State and yet finished
just 4-5 in the conference and 6-5
overall. This year, the Gophers return
nine starters on defense as well as their
entire offensive backfield, which is
raising some hopes in Gopherland.
"We think that when the whistle
blows, the University of Minnesota can
stand on the field with anybody in this
conference and be able to play," said
Minnesota head coach Joe Salem.
"Watch out for Minnesota because I
think we're going to be there."
What has Salem the most excited is
his offense, led by senior quarterback
Mike Hohensee.
"OUR OFFENSE is our strength en-

tering 1982," said the fourth-year
Gopher coach. "Our attack centers
around the quarterback."
And that is indeed a good choice
around which to center it. Hohensee set
Minnesota season records last year for
most passes attempted (328), most
passes completed (182), most yards
passing (2,412) and most touchdown
passes (20).
"If we erase our mental
mistakes-both offensively and defen-
sively, we can do it," said Hohensee, a
junior college transfer from California.
THE GOPHERS' leading rusher of a
year ago-senior fullback Frank
Jacobs (636 yards)-returns, as does
his running mate, sophomore tailback
Tony Hunter. Opening holes for them
will be senior center Ed Olson and
returning guards Bill Humphries (6-3,
242) and Randy Rasmussen (6-2, 237).
A major Gopher concern is deter-
mining who will be catching the passes,

that Hohensee is sure to be throwing.
Top receiver Chester Cooper has
graduated and the leading returning
receiver is fullback Jacobs. As of
spring drills, the starting receivers had
still not been decided upon.
Although the Gophers return nine
starters from last year's defense, it is a
questionable and unsettled corps.
"We've moved some people around
and we think the moves will help by get-
ting more quickness into odr defensive
unit," said Salem.
It appears now that Minnesota will
start a defensive line that includes
seniors Kevin Kellin and Karl
Mecklenburg at the tackles and senior
Fred Orgas and junior Jimmie James
at the ends. And if the Minnesota defen-
se performs like the Gopher offense is
expected to, the Gophers may indeed be
basking in the warmth of the California
sun come New Year's Day.
Th Wisconsin
The Wisconsin Badgers got a few
folks upset last season. The Badgers
beat Michigan, Ohio State and Purdue
last year, a feat of added significance
considering Wisconsin hadn't defeated
any of these three squads since 1975
when it eked out a 17-14 win over the
As a result, the Badgers are going to
be facing three squads bent on revenge
this season. So who are Wisconsin's fir-
st three road games against this year?
You guessed it: Michigan, Purdue and
Ohio State.
HAS ANYBODY got a white flag of
surrender handy for Badger head coach
Dave McClain and his squad?
If you do, save it. McClain returns 15
starters from last season's 7-5 club.
See CAMPBELL, Page 11

If Michigan head coach Bo Schem-
bechler thinks his Big Ten schedule is
rough, wait until he sees the tough
customers he's got waiting on this
year's non-conference slate.
Notre Dame and UCLA, a pair of
teams that Michigan beat handily last
season, will do battle with the
Wolverines on successive weekends
(Sept. 18 and Sept. 25), and rest assured
that the Fighting Irish and the Bruins
have not forgotten about last year's
"THE MICHIGAN game will be an
important one for us because we want
to get off on the right foot after what
happened to us last season," said
second-year Notre Dame head coach
Gerry Faust. Last season, the Irish
came into Ann Arbor as the top-ranked
team in the nation and left with a 25-7
pasting, the first loss of what would be a
miserable 5-6 season. This year the
game is in South Bend, it's the Irish
season opener and it will be the first
night game (9:00 p.m. EST) in the
history of Notre Dame Stadium. All of
which means that the Irish will be
ready for Michigan.
"We're all anxious to make amends
for last season and I would expect that
opening game to be a key one
emotionally," understates Faust. "We
know we will be playing a very good
Michigan team-one that will be one of
the favorites in the Big Ten. I don't
think playing the game at night will
have any effect on the outcome."
Schembechler, meanwhile, realizes
that his Wolverines have been apt to
look past their oWn season opener and
ahead to the Notre Dame game, and he
promises that will not be the case this

"I'VE BEEN burned on that before
and I'm not gonna let it happen again,"
said Schembechler. "Two years ago we
lost to Notre Dame (29-37), but then we
won the title and the Rose Bowl and
nobody remembers that we lost to
Notre Dame."
That doesn't mean that Schem-
bechler isn't thinking about the Irish
though. And the fact that Notre Dame
returns 19 starters from last season's
squad gives Schembechler plenty to
think about.
Leading the way for an Irish offense
that returns its top nine ground gainers
is senior tailback Phil Carter, who
rushed for 727 yards last year. The
quarterback will be junior Blair Kiel,
who completed 44 percent of his passes
for 936 yards. Kiel will be throwing
primarily to senior tight end Tony Hun-
ter and flanker Joe Howard:
ON THE defensive side, the Irish
return senior linebacker Mark
Zavagnin and tackles Tim Marshall
and Bob Clasby. Senior Dave Duerson
heads an experienced Notre Dame
The Bruins, meanwhile, return 15
starters from last year's 7-4-1 team that
lost to Michigan in the Bluebonnet
Bowl, 33-14.
Leading the way will be senior quar-
terback Tom Ramsey and top rusher
Kevin Nelson (883 yards). Also retur-
ning intact is the receiver combination
of seniors Jojo Townsell (26 catches, 430
yards) and Cormac Carney (29 catches,
539 yards).
Seniors Karl Morgan and Irv Eatman
anchor what is expected to be an im-
proved defensive line for the Bruins,
who will be attempting to beat the
Wolverines for the first time ever.
Michigan has won all five previous en-
