What a difference 68 seconds can
make.
It only took the Wolverines one
minute and eight seconds of playing
time to convert a sure defeat into a
spectacular victory, as Michigan drop-
ped Illinois-Chicago, 4-3, at Yost last
night.
WITH ONLY 38 seconds to go in the
third period, senior Ted Speers sent the
game into overtime when' he literally
fired the puck past a shocked Rich
Blakey. The game winner came with
nly 30 seconds gone in the overtime
when Jim McCauley took a pass from
Brad Tippett and rifled it into the left
side of the goal from the top of the right
faceoff circle.
Junior center Ray Dries put the
Wolverines on the scoreboard early

with a goal at the 5:52 mark. Dries
picked up the puck on a cross from
junior Kelly McCrimmon. The 5-7 Mt.
Clemens native then backhanded the
puck into the left side of the net past
Illinois-Chicago goalie Blakey. The
score was only Dries' second n the 1982-
83 campaign.
Early in the game, Illinois-Chicago
simply could not put anything together,
offensively. The Flames failed to con-
vert on a power play which resulted
when Wolverine sophomore Doug May
was waved off the ice at the 13:04 mark.
Illinois-Chicago only managed 13 shots
on goal for the stanza while the
Wolverines only garnered 14.
MICHIGAN, however, coughed up
several scoring opportunities in the
second period and allowed the Flames
to know the game at 1-1. Illinois-

Chicago's Greg Hooper tied up the con-
test at 10:11i. In a play straight from the
coach's notebook, the 5-9 freshman took
a pass from sophomore Oscar Pozzolo
and literally fired the puck past
Michigan goalie Mark Chiamp.
The Wolverines had many oppor-
tunities to uip their lead earlier in the
period but failed to take advantage of
them. When Jeff McIntyre, the Flames
right wing, was called off the ice at the
6:58 mark, Michigan simply could not
put together a respectable power play.
Again, with 10:07 to go in the period,
McCrimmon couldn't put the puck past
the Flames' Blakey on a breakaway.
the Wolverines even outshot the
Flames, 16-6, in the stanza but still
could not buy a goal.
Illinois-Chicago took the lead for the
first time in the third period. Majich
took a pass from teammate Oscar Poz-
zolo on a two-on-one breakaway and
poked the puck into the left side of the
net with only 1:52 gone in the stanza for
his first goal of the night.
Michigan, however stirred back to
life, knotting the contest at 10:36. the
goal came when sophomore Mike Neff
fired a shot that deflected off the skate
of teammate Tom Stiles into the
Flames' net.
Illinois-Chicago seemed to have put
the game on ice when Majich chalked
up his second goal of the evening with
only 3:06 remaining n the game.
Speers, however, then coughed up a
game-saving goal with less than a
minute of play left to send the game into
a sudden-death overtime period.

Off the Record

Giggling girs, flaming floats ..
... football California-style
W~ELL I HAVE seen the promised land and I have seen Bo's boys blow
another and I am back. And recovered. Fer sure.
On my virgin trip to California I saw mountains and valleys and talked to
girls who inhabited the latter. Fer sure. I saw things you never see in the
Midwest-like the sun.
I saw Steve Smith hurt his shoulder;, which may be the best thing that hap-
pened to Michigan on New Year's Day. For though there was no way the
outmanned Wolverines were going to beat UCLA anyhow, Smith's injury
leaves room for alibi.
I saw the Sunset Strip, and I saw a glittery sign that blared its wares:
"Nude nudes." As opposed to fully-clothed nudes I presume.
I saw the little old lady from Pasadena ... selling watches from inside her
trench coat. I saw enough to realize that normal people do not live in Califor-
nma.
But they rolled out the red carpet and thousands of Wolverines frolicked in
tjie lightlife and nightlife. And all the activities preceding the game pushed
the three hours of football on New Year's Day into the realm of relative in-
significance. Oh that California living ...
" They say the place to eat late at night in L.A. is a little greasy spoon
called Ship's that has a potted palm and a toaster at every table. It wasn't
long before I figured out that it wasn't the food that made it the place to eat,
but rather the clientele one gets to dine with.
In the space of one hour, we bumped elbows with a UCLA cheerleader (so
she claimed), a lovely lady of the evening, Laker forward James Worthy and
a blue-haired girl who smiled and giggled when one looked inquisitively at
her hair.
For $.50 you could get a burger or for $1.05 you had your choice of five
Kadota figs or seven stewed prunes. I opted for the burger.
" I am now thoroughly convinced
that the entire New Year's weekend,
in Pasadena is set up to ensure
that nobody gets any sleep. The
parade starts at 8:00 a.m. California
time and with New Year's Eve the
night before, well, let's just say
nthere were long lines at the porta-
johns.
But the parade was nice if you like
flowers, floats, and flutes. I found
especially interesting the IHOP float
that burst into flames and the circus
float that takes down telephone
poles.0
" The overworked-of-the-week
award goes, horns-down, to the
Michigan Marching Band, which
will probably need the next three
weeks to recover from its Rose Bowl .10 for five figs?
vacation. At every function, party
and dinner, the band played. And played. And played. It played until its
clarinets fell off and then it played some more. Everywhere you looked there
was a pack of little blue bandsmen. They even put on a pep rally New Year's
Eve before the big bash at the Hyatt. Alas, they stopped playing at 9:00 p.m.
and had to leave at 10:30, long before the revelers had cranked up the 87th
rendition of the ''Victors."~
r Mighty courteous folks these Tournament of Roses people. They reserve
a little cottage in front of the plush Huntington-Sheraton in Pasadena and
wine and dine the press every day, all day. Stop in any time and pick up a
sandwich or a libation or two from the open bar. They even have a machine
that squeezes fresh oranges for screwdrivers on the spot. The bartender,
who looks like he worked the first Rose Bowl in 1902, pours the vodka and
smiles sweetly as he fills the glass to the rim. Then he tops it off with a splash
of juice and nods pleasantly.
" Driving through Beverly Hills, just west of L.A., you find the Century'
Plaza Hotel, a ritzy high-rise that presumably houses some of the more ritzy
Michigan alumni during Rose Bowl week. It's easy to figure this out because
flying from every other balcony is a block 'M' flag.
Driving further into Beverly Hills you encounter a cute little street called
Rodeo Drive. Rodeo Drive is populated by Rolls Royces and Mercedes and
frequented by blue-haired ladies with French poodles. No Michigan students
were spotted on this street during the week.
s Quick comparison between the UCLA and USC campuses: UCLA is pret-
tier and in a much better section of town. USC rises majestically out of one of
L.A.'s worst ghettos and is a more modern, cement-block campus. Most
Michigan students caught a glimpse of the USC campus because that is
where they were forced to go to pick up their game tickets. While alumni
received theirs in the mail, the students had to drive into a bad section of
L.A., some 45 minutes from Pasadena, and show 43 pieces of ID to get theirs.
But who's to complain? The game was worth 30 bucks wasn't it?
" Back to the bands for a moment. Quick thought: Does that fantastic
UCLA card show in the stands at halftime cover up for a bad band? Nobody
pays any attention to the band tooting away when the real show is in the
stands. The Michigan band showed why it earned the Sudler Trophy as the
best band in the land by totally out-classing its California counterpart every

Michigan senior Brad Tippet's shot on the Illinois-Chicago goal may look like a sure thing,

USFL signs Spencer

McCauley overthrows
UIC in overtime

CHICAGO (AP) - Big Ten rushing
leader Tim Spencer of Ohio State
signed a four-year contract Friday with
the Chicago Blitz, marking the first
signing of a collegiate draft pick by the
United States Football League.
Financial terms of the pact' were not
disclosed. "It was the best choice I,
could have made," said Spencer, a 6-1,
212-pound tailback. "It was not in my
best interest to wait for the National
Football League draft.
"PEOPLE TRIED to discourage
me," he continued. "But they have
some great linemen here and a running
back always looks for that."
It marked the second such coup for
Blitz Coach George Allen, who spirited
Tim Wrightman, a consensus All-
America tight end from UCLA, from
the Chicago Bears roster last fall.
At that time, Allen said he did not an-
ticipate a bidding war with the older,
more established NFL. But he changed
his tune Friday, saying, "I didn't get in-
to the USFL to get into a second-rate
outfit."
SPENCER was picked second overall
in the initial USFL collegiate draft
Tuesday. His signing with the Blitz was
announced at an afternoon news con-
ference.
Allen, who owns the Blitz with car-
diologist Dr. Ted Diethrich and Bill
Harris, called Spencer's signing,
"History in the making.... a milestone
and just the beginning" of his efforts to
attract top-flight talent to the USFL.
Diethrich earlier charged the NFL
with "aggressive and widespread in-
trusion" to block the signing of
collegiate players by the new league.
"But we're not going to be in-
timidated," he said.
SPENCER SAID representatives of
the NFL and "outsiders" had contacted
him in attempts to dissuade him from
signing with the Blitz, but he declined to
identify anyone.
When asked whether he would regret
not playing against the best-meaning
the NFL-Allen interjected: "Do you
think all the NFL teams are playing
major league football?"
Spencer then added, "I think I'll be
playing major league footballk.., and I
definitely don't think it will take the

USFL sone 60 years to catch up with
the NFL."
SPENCER ENDED his career as the
second-leading rusher in Ohio State
history, with 3,553 yards.
Spencer was a dominant factor in the
Buckeyes' last seven games of 1982, all
victories. The Big Ten's leading rusher
earned 1,120 of his 1,538 yards in that
stretch, averaging 6.4 yards every
carry and 160 yards per game.
He also caught 14 passes for 138 yar-
ds. He was Ohio State's leading scorer
with 15 touchdowns, earning him the
team's Most Valuable Player award in
1982.
