ICanham questions USFL

Cagers to hunt Badgers, NIT bid

despite signs
By RON POLLACK
Michigan athletic director Don
Canham, no stranger to the world of
football and big bucks, is taking a
wait and see attitude before making
a prediction about the success or
failure of the free-spending United
States.Football League.
The USFL is shelling out vast
amounts of money to college stars
and Canham is unsure whether it
can survive the lofty price structure
it is causing or whether it will fold
like other fledgling leagues.
"IT'S HARD to say," said
Canham. "They're very well funded.
In contrast to the WFL (World Foot-
ball League), this league is well fun-
ded and can take losses for some
time.
"My concern is that the habits of
the country will have to be
changed," continued Canham. "You
have baseball, NCAA basketball and
golf going on at the same time as the
USFL. You don't have that com-
petition inuthe fall. You're asking
people to change their habits and
people are creatures of habit." Both
a USFL and a Michigan Panthers of-
ficial said that this will be no
problem.
"Between Tiger baseball and us,
we don't have many games that

Of success
coincide," said Panthers box office
and ticket manager Mary Beth
Welton. "We have six games at 8:00
(p.m.) and one at 9:00, so it's pretty
dark for anyone to be playing golf."
"PEOPLE ARE willing to change
their habits if it's good football,"
said league spokesperson Beth
Albert. That's what ABC and ESPN
are counting on, as both networks
have signed two-year contracts with
the USFL.
"Television alone will not sustain
them if no one is in the stands," said
Canham.
Albert said this concern does not
worry the USFL either.
"WE'RE SELLING tickets," she
said. "Denver has sold over 30,000
season's tickets and New Jersey has
sold 26,000."
"We're going to have to sellout
(80,638) for the first home game
(against the Oakland Invaders on
May 19), maybe the Chicago Blitz
game and on May 16 against the New
Jersey Generals," said Welton.
"Yesterday (Monday), we started
selling single game tickets and we
were overwhelmed. We have six
phone lines and they were ringing
constantly for 10 hours. It was
ridiculous. I had such a headache."

By JOHN KERR
Special to the Daily
MADISON - For a team mired in
ninth place in the Big Ten standings,
the Michigan Wolverines have quite a
bit of incentive to do well in tonight's
game against Wisconsin.
It's a longshot, but Bill Frieder and
his squad feel that an NIT bid could
become a reality if Michigan can do,
well in its final four games.
"I SAID IT a few weeks ago and I still
think if we can win three more games
we have a shot at the NIT," Frieder
said. "That makes this Wisconsin
game very important for us."
The tournament bid, though, is not
the only reason that tonight's game
against the Badgers is crucial to
Michigan. No team wants to fall to the
cellar-dwellers, and Wisconsin, with its
2-12 Big Ten record, is only two games
behind Michigan. A loss to the Badgers
would bring Frieder's team one step
closer to the basement, something he
obviously would like to avoid.
Frieder would also like to see the
Wolverines win a Big Ten road game.

Aside from Michigan's victory against
Michigan State in East Lansing, it has
gone 0-6 on the road inconference play.
"WE HAVE not played badly on the
road in some cases, but we just haven't
had the experience to hold on to leads in
these situations," said the Michigan
coach. "Any time you play on the road
in the Big Ten, you have an extremely
tough time winning, and Wisconsin is
playing good basketball on top of that."

Lack of experience isn't just
Frieder's problem. First year Wiscon-
sin coach Steve Yoder heads a team
made up of six sophomores, five fresh-
men and only one senior. The Badgers
will start three sophomores, one fresh-
man and one senior against the
Wolverines. Sophomore forwards Brad
Sellers (6-11) and Cory Blackwell (6-6)
are Wisconsin's top players. Sellers led
the Big Ten in rebounding last year and

THE LINEUPS

combines with Blackwell this season to
account for most of the Badgers offen-
sive production. Earlier in the season
Blackwell had 16 points and 12 reboun
in Michigan's 62-57 victory over th
Badgers in Ann Arbor.
While Michigan's front line must
worry about shutting down Wisconsin's
two forwards, the Badger guards,
freshman Ricky Olson and senior Greg
Dandridge, have to contain Michigan's
Eric Turner. Turner might have
something to prove tonight because the
last time these two teams met the
Michigan sophomore had his worst
game of the season. Turner took ju
one shot in his 22 minutes of playing
time and scored two points while tur-
ning the ball over seven times. It was
Michigan's Leslie Rockymore and Dan
Pelekoudas who took over whenTurner
was on the bench. Rockymore had 23
points and Pelekoudas had six assists.
With Rockymore out for the season,
however, Turner will not be able to
duplicate his non-performance and still
expect to win.
If he does, Michigan's NIT hoped
will be history.

By CHUCK JAFFE
The Michiganshockey seasonmay
have ended last weekend, but for
sophomore center Jeff Grade the
season and his Wolverine career en-
ded on January 17. On that day Grade
walked out of practice and was sub-
sequently suspended by head coach
John Giordano. Two weeks later Grade
was told he was off the team and free to
pursue hockey at another university.
"I deserved the suspension," Grade
said. "I walked out of practice on the
Monday after the Lake Superior series,
and that opened the door. I went in to
the coach'.s office the next day and he
said 'In two weeks you come back and
tell me if you want to play or not.'
"I WANTED TO come back to prac-
tice all along, even though I knew I
wouldn't play here anymore," he ad-
ded. "I went back in there on the day I
was supposed to and said 'I'm ready to
play,' but he said 'I've changed my
mind. I don't want you any more.'
Grade left practice January 15
because of his position on the team.
Although the 5-9, 190-pound center had
scored five goals and two assists for the

Wolverines, Giordano relegated him to
the sixth line, alongside Steve
Yoxheimer and without a third
linemate.
"I skipped a class to get down there,
and then I was on the sixth line," Grade
explained. "After a little bit, I knew I'd
have to leave or I'd make the situation
worse because I was so mad."
GIORDANO ADMITS that walking
out of practice ended Grade's days with
Michigan, but said that there were
other problems elsewhere.
"I don't think it was just a personality
conflict," the Michigan coach said. "At
this point he is off the team, and it's a
detailed story that I'd- like to keep
private. I'll take the blame, but
there's no hard feelings. I just think
he'll be better off elsewhere.''
The next stop for Grade will be Nor-
thern Michigan University where head
coach Rick Comley is anxious to see if
the Warren, Michigan native can im-
prove on his two year record as a
Wolverine.
"I tried to recruit him originally,"
Comley said. "I haven't seen him much
in the past two years, but I'm still in-
terested. I just told him that he could.

Grade suspended, NMU bound

come up here and walk on and take a
chance. If he lives up to what I expect
of him, then he'll make the team and
there won't be any problems." I
Carraway cut
BLOOMFIELD HILLS (AP) - For-
mer Michigan defensive tackle Winfred
Carraway, who had been listed as the
starting noseguard, was one of several
players axed as the Michigan Panther
trimmed their squad to the 45-playe
United StatesFootball League limit.
However, one more player still has
to be cut in order to make room on the
roster for former Wolverine receiver
Anthony Carter who signed a $2.4
million contract last week, Panthers'
spokesman Bruno Kearns said.
Carraway was placed on protec-
tive waivers. That means the Panthers
can withdraw his name if another team
claims him. Also placed on protectiv*4
waivers was former Michigan State
running back Steve Smith.
