By RON POLLACK
Michigan fullbacks Dan Rice and
Eddie Garrett have had to grow up on
the football field considerably faster
than most freshmen.
As first year players, they were sup-
posed to take root on the bench, lear-
ning their trade at a leisurely pace.
Such a plan has gone awry.
SENIOR Jerald Ingram entered the
1982 campaign as the starting fullback,
but has yet to play in a game due to an
assortment of nagging injuries. And so,
these unsuspecting freshmen have been
thrust into the starting lineup. One
week Rice will start, the next weekend
Garrett will get the nod.
"To tell you the truth, I didn't expect
to start so soon," says Rice."I expected
to play, but not as soon as I did. But the
opportunity was there with Jerald
Ingram's injury."

Garrett, on the other hand, came to
Michigan optimistic that he had a
legitimate shot at earning a starting
job. "I knew that I had an oppor-
tunity," he says. "I thought it was wide
open."
WHILE THEY did not arrive in Ann
Arbor with similar expectations, their
productivity has been the same.
"There's things I do better than him
and things he does better than me. So I
guess we're as even as can be," says'
Rice.
One noteworthy likeness between the
two is their need to improve their
blocking.
"The only mistakes we make are on
the blocking calls - who to block and
when," says Garrett. "That's the
biggest problem we have. In high
school, you block people and they just
fail over. That doesn't happen in
college.'
"THE HARDEST thing is picking up
a lot of offensive calls for blocking,"
echoes Rice. 'When I came here, they
said 'block,' and I thought to myself,
'block? I never had to do that before.'
But I like to hit, so that adjustment
wasn't so bad."
Another change from high school that
Rice has found in the collegiate ranks is
the sometimes torrid personality of his
coach.
"Bo intimidates me," he says. "I get
nervous. In high school you just hear

about him, but now he's your coach. He
demands perfection. Sometimes I
think, 'I'm only a freshman, what do
they expect of me! I make freshman
mistakes."
GARRETT, IN contrast, has no such
feelings of awe for the Wolverine head
coach. "I don't feel intimidated," says
Garrett. "When he yells at me I'm used
to it since my father is in the army. So I
take it as constructive criticism."
Schembechler undoubtedly has more
occasion to yell about missed blocks
than poor rushing attempts, for the
simple reason that the two fullbacks
are used primarily in a blocking
capacity. Rice has carried the ball a
scant 29 times for 122 yards this season.
Garrett only has had eight carries for 36
yards.
"It does bother me that I don't get to
carry the ball more," says Rice. "I
want to carry the ball, but I also want to
win. I'd rather win the game and throw.
50 blocks than lose and get to carry the
ball."
"I UNDERSTAND as a freshman
that we won't get to carry the ball
much," says Garrett. "I think right
now we're just coming in, so they don't
want to put pressure on us to carry the
ball."
When Rice first joined the Michigan
football team, his primary concern
wasn't how much he'd carry the ball,
his blocking or even the intimidating

presence of Schembechler. Instead, it
was none other than his curreno
sidekick.
"When I first came here, all I heard
about was Eddie Garrett this and Eddie
Garrett that," says Rice. "When I first
saw Eddie I thought I had made a
mistake coming here. I thought, 'Oh no,
he'll be here four years.'
"WHEN I first came here in August, I
saw a red 33 on my locker and thought
'Oh no, they're gonna red-shirt me,'
continues Rice. "Someone else also had
that number 33. I didn't like that. Then I
saw that Eddie not only had his own
number, but it was (1980 and 1981 star-
ting fullback Stanley) Edwards' num-
ber. I immediately took a disliking to
Eddie."
That dislike ended quickly, however,
and the two fullbacks now share a
mutual sense of respect for each other.
"There's no jealousy- at all now,"
says Rice. "We joke and laugh. I pu
for him and he pulls for me. On the road
we room together. Usually when two
people play the same position and are
fighting for time, there is animosity.
That's not the case with us."s
"Dan and I are really close," says
Garrett. "No matter who is in there, we
help each other out. If I see something
he doesn't, I'll tell him. We never have
hard feelings."

Frieder quiets optimism

Rice
... intimidated by Bo

By JOHN KERR
Okay Michigan basketball fans, this
is the year the Wolverines turn it
around, right? Eric Turner is a
sophomore, Tim McCormick is back
from his injury, and the Wolverines
have five freshman who, if one can
believe the newspapers, should be
doing Gorilla dunks with alarming
frequency against Michigan's poor op-
ponents.
But just hold on a minute. Sure, Tur-
ner is a sophomore and should have an
outstanding year, but McCormick
hasn't played a basketball game in 15
months; and as for the recruits? Well,
Bill Frieder knows that a healthy array
of awards and press clippings does not
win basketball games.
"I'M SICK OF reading about the
recruits," Frieder saidat the:annual
Michigan basketball press luncheon
yesterday. "We're not going to be as
good as most people think. The fresh-
men are not going to come in and
dominate the conference," he added.
"When Big Ten time rolls around we
are going to have a very, very tough
time."
The five recruits, 6-6 forward
Richard Rellford, 6-7 forward Butch
Wade, 6-10 center Roy Tarpley, 6-8 for-
ward Paul Jokisch, and 6-9 forward
Robert Henderson, all must improve
markedly if they are to compete suc-
cessfully at the Big Ten level, accor-

ding to Frieder.
But while the Michigan coach down-
plays his freshman class, there are
several reasons for optimism and
Frieder knows it. "The three main
things, experience, height, and injuries
are all taken care of now," he said. In-
deed, unlike last season, Michigan is
safe in all three areas. No one has any
serious injuries right now, and the
Wolverines have plenty of height.
With a year under his belt, sophomore
guard Eric Turner along with Dan
Pelekoudas and Leslie Rockymore,
gives the squad some much needed ex-

perience in the backcourt. The return
of Tim McCormick, who missed all
last season with knee injuries, means
the Wolverines have some height and
experience on the front line. That's good
news to Ike Person who can now return
to the forward position.
The Wolverines are a very good bet to
improve on last season's 7-20 mark, ii
fact Frieder's goal is to get his team in-
to a post-season tournament. But over-
zealous fans should pay attention to this
warning from the Michigan coach: "I
think it's (Michigan) going to be a team
with a lot of question marks."

CMU bombards spikers
in three straight matches
By ROB POLLARD
It was no surprise that the Michigan volleyball team fell to powerful Central
Michigan last night at the Central Campus Recreation Building. The real surprise
was that the game balls lasted long enough for CMU to complete it's 15-6, 15-9, 15-6
triumph.
The Chippewas spent most of the evening blasting volleyballs over, under and
around the befuddled Wolverines, and they controlled the area around the net f
the entire match.
THE !CHIPPEWAS raced to a 12-4 lead in the opening game, and were never
really threatened in their 15-6 win.
Michigan got off to an auspicious start in the second game by virtue of four con-
secutive aces by captain Alison Noble. However the points would come more
grudgingly from that point on. CMU fought back to tie the score at six, and then
proceeded to take a one-point lead at 9-8. At this point the Chippewas began to flex
their muscles.
Sophomore Joanne Hoskins decided she'd see if she could make a volleyball
travel at the speed of light. Hoskins' sonic spiikes whizzed by the Wolverines,
drawing oohs and aahs from the crowd. Hoskins and CMU went on to take the
game by a 15-9 count.
Michigan hosts Wisconsin in it's final home game of the year tomorrow at 4:01
p.m. in the CCRB.
