Airing the dirty laundry .. .
... 'M' is soiled;. Spartans filthy
By CHUCK JAFFE
THE MICHIGAN-Michigan State hockey series
last weekend was as exciting as it was brutal.
The two teams battled in both score and fisticuffs,
and left two sellout crowds hoping for a rematch in
the first round of the Central Collegiate Hockey
Shoudl the two teams play again, however, there
will be a lot more at stake than just advancing nto
the conference finals at Joe Louis Arena. More
than just a rivalry, the two teams have
proclaimed a war, with Michigan taking the
beating in score, and losing in the trenches
because of the cheap, dirty, unfair tactics of the
Spartans and their head coach Ron Mason.
Admittedly, the Michigan players have played
cleaner, more gentlemanly games, but the ledger
of dirty deeds weighs decidedly against the Spar-
tans. Michigan, after this penalty-filled weekend,
remains one of the league's least-penalized teams,
with just 201 infractions for 405 minutes (the first
major penalty was Todd Carlile's Saturday night
high-sticking call). Michigan State, on theother
hand, has blazed a trail to the sin bin, with 233
penalties and 496 minutes served. But the tales
behind the penalty minutes tell the real story.
*The rough tactics start right at the top, with
Michigan State coach Ron Mason. During the
Great Lakes Invitational Tournament, Mason
watched as his team fought with Michigan Tech -
between periods. This weekend, the Spartan
coach didn't stop Dale Krentz from leaving the
bench to chase Carlile, and after the game warned
that Carlile will "get it (retaliation for his check
on MSU All-American goalie Ron Scott) every
time he plays against Michigan State."
*Michigan followed with the next major
provocation of the weekend late in Saturday's 2-1
loss. As Carlile made a last second rush toward
the goal, a Spartan defender checked and broke
Carlile's stick. The Michigan freshman then
made a smart play by knocking the player closest
to him away from the now-loose puck. That
player was Spartan goalie Scott, and Carlile's high
check started the game's last brawl.
The important thing to note here is that Carlile
would have checked any player standing ten feet
away from the crease, as Scott was, on that play.
No, he did not make a run at Scott, and although
the high elbow (which somehow resulted in a
high-sticking penalty) was a flagrantly vicious
check, it was an isolated example of a Wolverine
initiating the chippy play.
eSpartan defenseman Ken Leiter's stick managed
to find its way between Wolverine freshman Chris
Seychel's legs, resulting in several illegal checks to
the groin. MSU co-captain Newell Brown crashed the
boards by punching opponents in the back of the head.
For the series Seychel got four penalties, Brown two
and Leiter just one.
The horror stories, for and against both sides,
would take days to tell, and will probably be restaged
in future meetings between the two teams. In fact,
even with all of the penalties for and against them,
the Wolverines played their best hockey of the
year. Continued play at last weekend's level could
put Michigan into the playoffs, and very possibly
back at Munn Ice Arena for a rematch against the
That's what the coaches, players and fans want.
But Michigan is now, and will always be, a clean
team under head coach John Giordano. the
rematch might be as brutal as the original, but the
Spartans unsportsmanlike tactics will be coun-
tered with clean, solid, and very hard body
checks, and the results of playing real hockey will
be reflected in the final score.

day for signing.
DAWSON IS AN all-around athlete
and is considered to be one of the top
two receivers in the state of Illinois. He
reportedly will play for Bo Schem-
bechler with the stipulation that he also
be allowed to play baseball.
"He's probably the best all-around
athlete I've ever seen in my 25 years of
coaching," said Tom Powers, the head
coach at Evanston Township High.

Dawson demonstrated his versatility

every down on offense and defense and
scoring points in almost every way
possible on a football field. He caught
five touchdown passes, returned two
punts for touchdowns (70 and 65 yards),
returned an interception 30 yards for
another score, kicked four field goals,
converted 11 extra points and snagged a
pair of two-point conversions. In all, he
caught 36 passes for 540 yards (15 yards
per catch) and intercepted seven
