P

Slumping Gophers to take on

M'

gridders

"The dome is good, night football is good, but un-
fortunately we haven't won many games," said
Salem, in his fourth year at Minnesota.
The Gophers waltzed to three straight victories to
open the season but then got hammered by Illinois,
42-24, followed that up with a shocking 31-21 loss to
Northwestern, and things have gone downhill since.
"WE WENT into. the Illinois game, and in the four-
th quarter they simply demolished us," explained
Salem. "We haven't been a plugged nickel since."
In their defense, the Gophers have been hit by an
incredible spate of injuries, which has seen them lose
13 starters at one point or another this season. The
most recent casualty was all-league defensive end
Fred Orgas, who separated his shoulder in last
week's 21-16 loss to Iowa and is out for the year.
"I don't know how to explain it (the injury
situation)," said ,Salem. "I've never experienced
anything like this anywhere."
THE INJURIES have forced Salem to go with an*
all-freshman running back tandem of tailback Valdez
Baylor and fullback Demetrious Chism. The
Gophers' leading rusher is senior fullback Bob Stroup
with 232 yards, but he has lost his starting position to
Chism. Whatever Minnesota gains on the ground
though, will merely be complementary to the passing
of Hohensee who has completed 60 percent of his
passes for 1,869 yards, 10 touchdowns and a league-
high 11 interceptions.
"We're going to throw the football," said the
Gopher head man. "We're going into the game with
the idea of throwing 30 or 40 times."
Wolverine head codch Bo Schembechler was a little
miore liberal in his estimation of the Minnesota aerial
intentions. "We saw (71) passes last week and we'll
see another 50 this week," said Schembechler.
HOHENSEE'S two favorite targets are sophomore
flanker Dwayne McMullen and senior tight end Mike

Curtis, who have caught 32 and 25 passes respec-
tively. However, as potent as the Gopher offense ap-
pears, it is the defense that ranks at the top of the
league in both passing and total defense. And that is
what has Schembechler worried.
"Minnesota comes in with a totally different con-
cept of defense-like nothing we've met," said Bo.
"They're playing that split-four, with eight men on
the line.
"They're the best pressure team we've faced and
we've beaten them with (quarterback Steve) Smith
to Carter or (former quarterback John) Wangler to
Carter."
INDEED, IT appears that Michigan is priming All-
American flanker Carter for a big game, which is
easy to understand in light of the fact that Carter has
caught 17 passes for 296 yards and three touchdowns
in his last two games against the Gophers.
"Right now, Anthony is in the best shape he's been
in all year," said Schembechler. "In the last four
games, I think he'll explode."
With Carter apparently fully recovered from rib
and groin injuries that have plagued him most of the
season, the Wolverines, winners of four in a row (5-2
overall, 5-0 Big Ten), will be almost completely
healthy for today's game. Cornerback John Lott is
apparently recovered from a broken arm and is listed
as a starter. Fullback Jerald Ingram, who has been
out all year with a knee injury, was back in practice
this week, as was defensive tackle Kevin Brooks, also
apparently recovered from a knee injury. Both could
see some action today.
This afternoon's game also marks the annual battle
for the Little Brown Jug, which the Wolverines have
held since avenging 1977's 16-0 loss to Minnesota, the
last time Michigan was shut out. The Wolverines won
last year, 34-13, lead the series 47-22-3, and are listed as
21-point favorites.

Bowling

By JOE CHAPELLE
Special to the Daily
BOWLING GREEN, Ohio-The Galley
Bowling Green icers literally pounded
the young Wolverine defense as the
Falcons rolled past Michigan, 9-2, at the
Bowling Green Ice Arena last night
before a sellout crowd of 3,217. r
"Bowling Green is the best team in
the league," said Michigan coach John
Giordano. "Our defense played well
considering that we had four freshmen
back there tonight. They received a McCauley
baptism."
THE FALCONS, behind a fierce offensive attack, took a 2-1
lead over the Wolverines in the first period, notching two
goals within two minutes of each other. The Falcons
dominated the game in the first period with the first 10
minutes of the game played almost entirely on the Wolverine
end of the ice.
The first Falcon goal came at the 4:53 mark when senior
center Kim Collins took a pass from teammate Dave Ellett at
the Wolverine blue line and skated it in for the score.
The Falcons came right back and put their second goal of
the night on the board at the 5:52 mark. Freshman Gino
Cavallini scored the first goal of his college career when he
picked up the puck at the Bowling Green blue line and took it
all the way in for the score, poking it past Wolverine goalie
Mark Chiamp, who gave up all nine Falcon goals of the
evening.
THE WOLVERINES came to life briefly at the 17:44 mark
when junior Jim McCauley took a short pass from Chris
Seychel and backhanded it into the Bowling Green net.
The Falcons, however, took complete command of the
game in the second period, garnering five more goals to take
a 7-1 lead. Bowling Green's first goal of the period came at
2:59 with sophomore Garry Galley scoring a power play goal
while the Wolverines had two men off the ice.
Bowling Green's fourth goal came at 8:01. Junior Kim
Hack picked up a Galley pass and poked the puck into the
corner of the Wolverine net for his third goal of the year.
GALLEY CHALKED up his second and Bowling Green's
fifth goal of the evening at 15:28. Galley took a pass from
teammate Wayne Wilson and wound up and fired a shot from
the inside edge of the right Michigan face-off circle into the
goal.
Wilson had his turn at the 18:18 mark when he put goal
number six on the board for the Falcons. The junior defen-
seman, taking a pass from teammate Jamie Wansbourgh at
the blue line and fired the puck past Chiamp.
With the young Michigan defense reeling from the Falcon
scoring attack, Brian Hills, the CCHA's leading scorer,
tallied his sixth goal of the season with 23 seconds to go in the
period giving the Falcons a commanding 7-1 lead.9

By PAUL HELGREN
Passing continues to be in style in the Big
Ten as most.teams look more and more to
their quarterbacks to be an offensive spark.
While a few teams have effectively used
passing to win games (namely Illinois),
others have been passing in an effort to
quickly make up ground on the scoreboard
or because they lack anything that resem-
bles a running game. Of the five quarter-
backs who passed for at least 300 yards last
week, only Illinois' Tony Eason and Pur-
due's Scott Campbell led their teams to vic-
tory.
In the most crucial game of the day,
Illinois (5-1, 6-2 overall) travels to Iowa City
to take on the Hawkeyes (3-1, 4-3) in a
regionally televised match-up. Illinois
comes off of last week's dramatic 29-28 vic-
tory over Wisconsin in which Eason passed
for a career-high 479 yards. But Mike Bass
was the real hero as he kicked a Big Ten
tying five field goals, including the game-
winner with three seconds to play. Eason

who has averaged almost 320 passing yards
per game (best in the Big Ten), is certain to
test Iowa's suspect pass defense which is
seventh in the Big Ten allowing 262 yards per
game. Iowa's defensive strength, stopping
the run, will do them little good against the
pass-happy Illini. Iowa does have a potent
running attack, however, and is led by Ed-
die Phillips who ran for 198 yards in last
week's 21-16 Hawkeye win against Min-
nesota.
IN LAST YEAR'S Purdue-Ohio State
game, Scott Campbell threw for 516 yards,
but Purdue still lost, 45-33. Campbell is still
throwing and Purdue is still losing (2-3 Big
Ten, 2-5 overall). Purdue does have a fine
runner in Big Ten leader Mel Gray, but is
ninth in the Big Ten in defense. Ohio State
(3-1, 4-3) on the other hand, is second in
defense and has allowed only 15.5 points in
Big Ten action. Purdue is coming off a win,
but that came against Michigan State and it
was a struggle at that (24-21).
Speaking of struggles, the Spartans (0

for'82) will try once again to win one for
Muddy "Troubled" Waters as they travel to
Indiana to take on the Hoosiers (2-3, 3-4).
Poor Muddy. Even his wife is being asked if
he'll quit at the end of the year. Indiana, led
by quarterback Babe Laufenberg, has a
good chance to beat State for the first time
since 1969. Laufenberg has been hobbling on
a bad ankle the last few weeks, but his arm
is fine and that's all that matters.
Northwestern quarterback Sandy Schwab
broke or tied six NCAA passing records last
week and has a chance to break two more
this week against Wisconson. Schwab needs
28 completions to break the record for
freshmen (103 by Tulsa's Bill Anderson in
1965), and 282 yards total offense for the NCAA
freshmen record held by Purdue's Mark
Herrmann. Wisconsin, which lost a hear-
tbreaker to Illinois last week, will be going
without leading rusher Chucky Davis, who
was suspended for the week not going to
class.

Riding a six-game losing streak, the
young Michigan volleyball team saw
last night's game as a chance for a tur-
naround; it almost was.
Despite winning the first two games,
15-6 and 15-12, the Wolverines were
unable to halt an Eastern Michigan
comeback, and dropped the next three
games, 15-10, 15-12, 15-9.
MICHIGAN Coach Sandy Vong felt
that his squad eased up after winning
the first two games. He noted the

Hurons growing confidence as the mat-
ch progressed. "Tonight we played like
they didn't want to lose. Eastern has
seniors who haven't beaten us in four
years. They were really up for us
tonight." Vong also cited poor service
receiving and inconsistent blocking.
Excellent serving by juniors Carla
Dearling and Alison Noble kept
Michigan in the match until the end.
Behind 12-9 in the final game, the
spikers kept the Hurons from scoring
for almost five minutes. It was then

that three long volleys, in spite of sj
tacular efforts by sophomore Su
Holloway and junior Jeanne Weck
saw EMU score the final three point,
In' September, Michigan beat
Hurons, 3-0 in Ypsilanti.
Wolverines will visit the Hurons' c
ference mate-Bowling Green-
Tuesday.

Pistons claw Hawks, 94-86,
to win season opening game

lqN*Mllllll*

By JESSE BARKIN
Special to the Daily
PONTIAC - Someone forgot to tell, the
Detroit Pistons and the Atlanta Hawks that
the pre-season was the time to get the kinks
out.
Both teams played sloppily early on, but
when it came down to "winning time," it was
the Pistons that rose to the occasion with a 94-
86 season-opening win.
"WE GOT OFF to a slow start," said
Pistons' forward Kent Benson. "But we were
tight and nervous and ready to play. It just
took us time to relax."
Early on, Atlanta rookie Dominique Wilkins
slam-dunked his way into the hearts of the
opening-game record 15,252 fans that packed
the Silverdome. In the opening half, Wilkins
poured in 17 points and grabbed 10 rebounds.
However, Kelly Tripucka and the Pistons held
the Georgia sensation to six points and two
rebounds the rest of the way.
The game was close throughout, and the
Hawks looked as if they were going to break

bed the rebound and was fouled by Wilkins.
Laimbeer's two free throws gave the Pistons
a five-point bulge.
Top-ranked Hawkeyes lose
The Old Dominion field hockey team didn't
just try harder. The number two-ranked
Monarchs out-shot, out-hustled, and
ultimately out-scored their top-ranked op-
ponents from Iowa, 4-0, in the Nike-Wolverine
Field Hockey Classic last night at the
Michigan Fieldhouse.
Old Dominion, now 11-1, exploded from the
outset of the contest and got on the board
when sophomore Eveline Veraart ripped a
penalty stroke past Iowa goalie, Donna Lee.
Veraart then put the Monarchs up by two on a'
finely executed corner shot set up by Eveline
LePoole.
IOWA, MEANWHILE, was unable to'
establish an attack of its own. Time and time
again, the Hawkeye players were met by a
swarm of Monarchs whenever they touched
the ball.
Old Dominion opened and closed the second
