lay (8-2) overall, while the second-
lace Buckeyes are 6-1 in the conferen- "
ee (7-3 overall). The scheduling quirk,
which has Ohio State playing one less
Big Ten game than Michigan, makes it
impossible for the Bucks to catch the
f PM think it is obvious that we would
prefer to have this game be for the
title," said Ohio State head coach Earle
Bruce. "But regardless, it is still the
Michigan game and our most important
game of the year."
The last time the Rose Bowl bid was
not at stake was 11 years ago, when
thgWolveirnes had the title wrapped up
but had to withstand a Woody Hayes
temper tantrum and sweat out a 10-7
win over Ohio State. And fans can ex-
pect emotions to be just at fever-piting
again today.
A'It's still an important game no mat-
ter how you look at it," said Michigan
linebacker Paul Girgash. "We still


have to go out and demonstrate that
we're the champions."
"THIS GAME is still the difference
between a successful and an unsuc-
cessful season," said Ohio State tight
end John Frank.
"Just the thought of this game gets
me excited," said Buckeye tailback
Tim Spencer.
If Ohio State fans have anything to
get excited about, it most certainly is
Spencer's running. The 6-1, 212-pound
senior has rushed for 1,247 yards this
season to become the Buckeyes' second
all-time leading rusher. His running
mate is Vaughn Broadnax, a 252-pound
bulldozer of a fullback, who has
managed to gain 390 yards this season,
even while spending most of his time
blocking for Spencer.
While Buckeye fans can depend on
the Ohio State running game, they can't
be as confident of the passing attack.
Sophomore quarterback Tim Tomczak

has been inconsistent in his first year at
the helm, but has shown signs of finally
shaking the early-season jitters -
jitters which helped cause the Bucks to
lose three straight home games.
TOMCZAK WAS benched during a 6-
0 loss to Wisconsin, but has rebounded
to complete 55 of 96 passes over his last
five games. On the season, he has hit on
49 percent of his tosses for eight
touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
'He (Tomczak) is a very fine young
quarterback," said Schembechler.
"Early in the season he was a victim of
what all young quarterbacks have
fallen to. He's playing well now."
The man Tomczak has been throwing

to most often is senior split end Gary
Williams, who leads the team with 31
receptions and is working on an NCAA
record streak of at least one reception
in 43 straight games.
ON DEFENSE, two players who have
started all four years for the Buckeyes
will be closing out their home career;
linebacker Marcus Marek and tackle
Jerome Foster. And while the teams
rank 1-2 in all of the league's ofinsive
statistics, Schembechler insists that
"the game will come down to defense."
Or, ultimately, the kicking game.
While Lawrence Ricks, Steve Smith,
and Anthony Carter match up very
nicely with Spencer, Tomczak, and
Williams, Michigan has a huge advan-
tage in the kicking department.
Ali Haji-Sheikh has had a banner
year, hitting on 12 of 15 field goal at-
tempts, while Buckeye freshman Rich
Spangler has connected on only six of 15.
LAst year, Ohio State downed the
Wolverines, 14-9, and, in fact, the
visiting team has won the last four en-
counters. Overall, Bo is 6-6-1 against
the Buckeyes and it is interesting, if not
necessarily pertinent, to note that Ohio
State has not scored a touchdown at
home against Michigan since 1972.
Needless to say, Schembechler is ex-
pecting the same kind of game that has
always been provided, regardless of the
fact that Michigan has the title clin-
"Every Michigan-Ohio State game
has been close," he said. "It will
probably be a close game and a fourth-
quarter game. Pride is always big. We
have enormous respect for Ohio State
and they have respect for us."

The college football season is en-
tering its final weekends and soon it will
be time to choose the best player in
college football. Yes, its Heisman time
again. The players are finishing their,
campaigns to impress the sportswriters
and broadcasters of America, while the
sports information departments of their
respective universities are turning out
the final press releases, extolling the
virtues of their candidates.
The run for this year's trophy an-
nually awarded by New York's Down
*town Athletic Club is basically down to
a two-man race between John Elway of
Stanford and, of course, Herschel
Walker of Georgia. Before we discuss
the merits of these two players and the
other primary candidates let's take a
look at the history of the prestigious
IN 1935, the Downtown Athletic Club
under the directorship of none other
than John Heisman, decided to honor
the best football player in college foot-
ball. The first year it was called the
Downtown Athletic Club Trophy and
was awarded to Jay Bergwerger of the
"ihiversity of Chicago.
Heisman died the following year and
the members of the club voted to name
the trophy the John Heisman Memorial
Trophy. Besides the famous trophy,
Heisman is remembered for the many
innovations which he brought into the
game of college football.
_ Running backs have traditionally had
V a lock on the trophy. There has been
only one lineman to win the award,
Leon Haurte of Notre Dame (he was an
end, but in the 40's ends were con-
sidered linemen). The last non-back to
win was Johnny Rodgers of Nebraska
in 1972.
THOSE OF you who are betting on
Dave Rimmington to win the Heisman,
don't count on it. Rimmington, a 292
pound center from Nebraska is a shoe
*in for the Outland Trophy, annually
awarded to college football's top in-
terior lineman. But, since centers only
handle the ball before the play really
starts and nobody has kept stats on how
many times Rimmington introduced
opposing middle guards and tackles to
the turf, his Heisman hopes are slim.

Three people who had Heisman hopes
at the beginning of the year but dropped
out of the running during the season,
are Jim Kelly of Miami, Curt Warner of
Penn State, and Kelvin Bryant of North
Carolina. Kelly was hurt early in the
season, Bryant has had a disappointing
year, and Warner is on a team that
went from a running oriented offense to
a passing dominated attack.
Warner's teammate, Todd
Blacklidge, and Tom Flutie of Boston
college are in the wait-until-next-year
category. Flutie is just a sophomore
and Blacklidge is a junior. Both had
great years but if any quarterback wins
this year it will be Elway, or possibly
Tony Eason of Illinois.
EASON probably will not win
because he has only been in the natonal
limelight for two seasons. Also, Elway
has had a lot of national exposure for
being a part-time professional baseball
player and for losing to his father's
team (San Jose State) two years
Both quarterbacks have tremendous
statistics. Elway has a 64% completion
rate, 2912 total yards passing, and 22
TD's. Eason has completed 62% of his
passes and thrown for 3248 yards and 17
TD's. Dan Marino of Pittsburgh also
has an outside shot but his stats don't
quite compare with Elway's or
Eason's. He also had a disappointing
showing in his nationally televised
opener against North Carolina. Two of
Elway's best showing were on national
TV against Ohio State and Washington.
When you talk about running backs,
there is only one name to mention, and
that is Herschel Walker, Ernest Ander-
son of Oklahoma State and Eric
Dickerson of SMU have had outstan-
ding seasons gaining 1571 and 1536 yar-
ds respectively. But neither has had
three tremendous seasons like Walker
has or played on a national contender for
all of his collegiate career.
WALKER ALSO has impressive
season statistics. On the campaign he
has 1590 yards, 14 TD's, and has
averaged 5.2 yards per carry. Anthony
Carter has a shot at the Heisman but his
chances have been hampered by
season-long injuries, and as mentined
earlier, ends usually don't win.

Today's MICHIGAN-Ohio State game starts at 12:35 EST and can be seen-on
WJBK-TV (Channel 2). It can be heard on WAAM (1600 AM)-, WWJ (950 ANI),
WTOD (1560 AM), WJR (760 AM), WTRX (1330 AM), WUOM (91.7 FM), WLEN

Muddy directs MSU for last time

Tripucka ignores pain;
his shot clinches game

The Big Ten season comes to a close
today as Iowa tries to gain a bowl bid,
Muddy Waters directs Michigan State
for the last time, and Illinois and Nor-
thwestern sit at home, their seasons
completed, thinking about the Liberty
Bowl and a three-win season respec-

choice for the Peach Bowl or the In-
dependence Bowl. Hayden Fry's club
has surprised the experts this year,
most of whom predicted the Hawkeyes
to finish near the bottom of the con-
ference. The Big Ten's top defense in
yards allowed is led by nose guard
Dave Browne, last week's UPI Big Ten
player-of-the-week, who had seven
tackles and two fumble recoveries
against Wisconsin. Punter Reggie Roby
will be looking to wrap up his second
consecutive NCAA punting crown
against MSU.
THE SPARTANS must be happy that
1982 is finally coming to an end. It's
been a rough year at Michigan State
and Coach Waters is hoping to leave his
alma mater with two straight victories
to close out the season. Severe alumni
pressure to dump Waters got to the
athletic department and they announ-
ced last Sunday that the Iowa game
would be Waters' last.
Waters' hopes in the season finale lie
on the shoulders of freshman QB Dave
Yarema and placekicker Ralf
Mojsiejenko, who had 14 points in last
week's 26-7 triumph over Minnesota.
Muddy and co. just don't have the tools
to handle the Hawkeyes. Look for Iowa
to prevail easily.
Ross-Ade Stadium in West Lafayette
will be the site of the annual Indiana-
Purdue battle for the "Old Oaken

Bucket" and bragging rights for the
state of Indiana. These two squads
haven't had much to brag about so far
this season as they have both clinched
losing records. Each was hurt by tur-
novers last week as they lost by a com-
bined total of 72 points. Purdue's Scott
Campbell and Indiana's Babe Laufen-
berg will put the ball in the air often and
the Boilermakers should prevail in
front of the home crowd, spoiling
Laufenberg's last game as a Hoosier.
Minnesota, which was actually 3-0
early in the season and ranked in the
Top 20, will be finishing off a horren-
dous season in Madison, taking on
Wisconsin. The Gophers hold the distin-
ction of losing to Northwestern and
Michigan state in the same season. A
Badger victory will give the club back-
to-back winning seasons for the first
time since 1962-63. Wisconsin should not
have much trouble with the disheveled
Gophers, who have not won since Sep-
tember 26.

Special to the Daily
PONTIAC - A bad back and a sprain-
ded ankle won't keep Kelly Tripucka
With twelve seconds to go Tripucka
hit a two foot jump shot which gave the
Detroit Pistons a four-point lead and
clinched a victory over the Golden State
Warriors, 106-102.
:The 6-6 forward, whoinjured his back
tWo nights ago in a loss to Philadelphia,
hid the pain well as he led the Pistons
with 26 points in 41 minutes of action.
"IF I STAYED loose and stayed
warm, I was all right," said Tripucka.
"It didn't come easy because I was a
little hurt. We needed a win and the
team needs me, and its my job to be out
Coach Scotty Robertson originally
wanted to rest the former Notre Dame
star, but "Kelly said 'Coach, don't
worry about it, I'm OK,' and he did the
job," said Robertson.
With the Pistons holding a 104-102
lead, Isiah Thomas missed a jumpshot
from the top of the key, but Piston for-
ward Terry Tyler was there to grab the
rebound. Tyler passed the ball out to
*Thnmas and he rifled it inside to

Pistons forced numerous Warrior tur-
novers, enabling Detroit to score on fast
break baskets as the Pistons rolled to a
62-49 halftime lead.
Guard Vinnie Johnson led the offen-
sive charge, scoring 13 of his 23 points
in the second quarter. He was also a key
defensively as he blocked three shots,
made two steals and held Warrior gun-
ner World B. Free to six for sixteen
shooting in the first half. Free ended up
with 29 points, but it was teammate Joe
