--Brad Tippett,

Michigan left-winger.
"If we drop one of the games this
weekend, we're in a big hole.
Everything's at stake."
--Ferris State coach Dick Bertrand.
The action is heating up. With just six
games left in the CCHA regular season,
both Michigan and Ferris State, op-
ponents in games tonight and Saturday
in Big Rapids, are locked in a tight bat-
tle for the last two positions.
The Bulldogs are in a three-way-tie
for seventh place with Notre Dame and
Western Michigan at 19 points while the
Wolverines are just one point back. The
top eight teams in the conference

qualify for the post-season tournament.
THE WOLVERINES will be com-
pleting the road portion of the '82-'83
schedule this weekend and finishing up
a series of seven out of eight games
away from Yost. But their goal for this
week is to be given the chance to hit the
road again - this time in the playoffs.
They may be catching Ferris at an
opportune time, because Bertrand's
squad has dropped their last four
games. "We're in a bit of a slide," said
Bertrand. "We've lost our last four, but

And in the last 10, we're 3-5-2."
The Bulldogs have made quite a tur-
naround since December when they
were mired in last place and now they
are in a position to make the top eight.
Ferris is led on offense by linemates
Tom Rudrud and Randy Merrifield.
The two are tied for team scoring
honors with 35 points apiece. Other top
performers are senior center Paul Cook
(11 goals, 16 assists) and defenseman
Jim File (20 assists).

"OUR DESTINY is in our own hands.
We know that Michigan is capable of
winning on the road and they've got the
horses in Speers, Seychel, and Tip-
pett," added Bertrand. "We haven't
been scoring well of late and have been
shabby in our defensive zone. But our
number one goal is to make the playof-
fs, so we're going to have to turn it
around and the change has to come
from the heart."
Michigan will benefit tonight from
the return of junior defenseman John
DeMartino for the first time since early
in the season. The transfer from UM-
Dearborn has been out with a leg in-
jury.
"We've been working hard in prac-
tice this week and I hope that will be
reflected in the games," said Michigan
coach John Giordano. "The return of
DeMartino will help, his ice time will
depend on the speed of the game."
GIORDANO PLANS to use
sophomore Jon Elliott in the net
tonight. Elliott sports a goals-against-
average of 2.20 since the Christmas
break.
This weekend's games between
Michigan and Ferris State tonight
and Saturday night from Big Rapids
will be broadcast over WJJX (650
AM) radio. Air time is at 7:15, the
games begin at 7:30.

Straight from the

A tale of two kings at
war for football recruits
O FF IN THE land of East Lansing, there is a man who would
be king. He is King George II (King George I resides in the faraway
land of New York in a castle known as the Bronx zoo), otherwise referred to
as Michigan State head football coach George Perles.
Given his way, George II would be king of the hill in a state shaped like a
hand. King of the recruiting hill, that is.
George II is a newly-crowned king, taking over from King Muddy who has
been sent into exile because of many a lost battle. And King George would
like nothing better than to send his kingdom's arch enemy into similar
banishment.
The hated foe of the land of East Lansing is King Bo, the ruthless leader of
a football kingdom in Ann Arbor. For too long, say elitists and commoners
of East Lansing, King Bo has mercilessly trampled the Spartans' leaders in.
recruiting ways in the state which is shaped like a hand. He takes what he
wants, raiding high school football teams at will, leaving the less valuable
treasures for the outmanned East Lansingites.
But this year, King Geoge II and the Knights he has surrounded himself
with have laid seige on the recruits who reside in the state shaped like a hand.
Previous strongholds of King Bo have been turned into battlefields.
Of the top 15 players in this land, seven have chosen to do battle for George
II while but one will wear maize-and-blue armor beginning in September.
"We knocked the socks off 'em," said King George II. "Anybody who
doesn't try to make their living in their own state is making a big mistake.
You'd better win your own state.
"We have control of the state of Michigan," the East Lansing king con-
tinued amidst much merriment and celebration by his loyal followers. "We
won in our state, and we have some high-class guys."
There is no arguing with the fact that the new king dominated the
recruiting in the state shaped like a hand this year. Whether the East Lan-
singites control the state is a topic for future wars between himself and King
Bo, however.
George II won the battle this year, but Bo may have won the war. While
George II and his knights were visiting nearby recruits, Bo and his knights
were going to such faraway places as Florida, Ohio and Illinois to see would-
be warriors.
Twenty of King Bo's 28 recruits came from lands other than the one shaped
like a hand. These foreigners to the Great Lake State were not kicked out of
their lands for ill deeds done. No indeed, great banquets were held in their
honor and many a noble man tried to persuade them.
But what King Bo wants, King Bo usually gets. The kings from Florida,
Illinois and Ohio discovered this; something royalty from East Lansing had
known for so many years.
But this year it was different for the East Lansingites. This year, they suc-
cessfully attacked the state shaped like a hand while King Bo was leading his
troops in faraway lands.
The result of these months of battle for young warriors is that the land of
East Lansing has reason to celebrate. And so do the inhabitants of the land of
Ann Arbor. It was a war which produced two winners and no losers.

With both teams looking past this
meet to their conference champion-
ships, one might think that the women's
swim meet tonight between Eastern
Michigan and the Wolverines would
mean very little.
"This meet is a tune-up for the Big
Ten Championships," said Michigan
head coach Stu Isaac. "No one will be
swimming more than two events.
"WE DECIDED what we needed
each individual to work on," Isaac ad-
ded. "We then set up the meet accor-
dingly. Our top people will be swim-
ming their fourth or fifth event."

Eastern Michigan coach Barb John-
son agreed with Isaac that the meet is
only a tune-up for the Mid-America
Conference championships in two
weeks.
"We try to match up some good
races," said Johnson. "It's kind of a
fun meet. It is a tune-up for our cham-
pionships."
EASTERN, A young team made up of
mostly freshmen and sophomores, is 7-2
in dual meets. One of these loses came
against Miami of Ohio.
"Losing to Miami got them really ex-
cited for the conference champion-
ships," said Johnson. "There were
some really close races. this showed
our kids that we have a lot of depth."
Depth is one of the things that Isaac
has been working on ail year. "If we
are going to win the Big Ten Champion-
ship, almost all of our swimmers have
to score," said Isaac.
ONE OF THE people that is going to
be critical at the Big Ten meet is
freshman Louise Webster. Webster,
who usually swims the long distance
freestyle races, will swim the 100 and
200-yard freestyle tonight.
The Wolverines are beginning to
taper down their practices in

preparation for the championships. The
tankers have been practicing less and
doing less in each practice in an attem-
pt to strengthen their weaker events
and further improve in their stronger
events. Good performances in each
swimmer's weaker events is crucial for
success in the championships.
During this taper, "We are resting up
getting our strokes working perfectly,"
said Webster. "You are resting up so
that you are physically and mentally
prepared to swim at the Big Ten meet."
"SHE'S AN unknown quantity in the
states," said Isaac about the Canadian
Webster. "She will beat some of the
people that have beaten her during the
season."
Michigan diving coach Dick Kimball
thinks that the diving will be a crucial
event at the Big Ten meet. The divers
approach the championship in a dif-,
ferent way than the swimmers. "We
don't taper," said Kimball. "We just
change the style. We do more quality
kind of stuff. We run it straight through
as if it were a meet."
The one meter diving precedes the
meet at 6 p.m. at Matt Mann pool. The
three meter diving will be held during'
the regular meet which begins at 7:30
p.m.
