Here are a couple of pre-season polls from two very respected
publications. There seems to be quite a difference of opinion.
By CHUCK JAFFE
The last time Michigan coach Bo
Schembechler was openly worried
about his defensive secondary, the
Wolverines finished the season by win-
ning the 1981 Rose Bowl.
This year, Schembechler has said
that the secondary could be the weak
spot in the defense, despite the presen-
ce of two' returning starters and one
part time player.
WITH THE losses of only six defen-
sive players, perhaps Bo was looking
for a dark side to his veteran defense.
Schembechler won't find many
weaknesses anywf ee e on defense,
although he does face the task of
replacing inside linebacker: Paul
Girgash, who was not only a leading
tackler but a leader in heart, and out-
side linebacker Robert Thompson.
Also gone in defensive end Winfred
Carraway, who quietly played his way
to an outstanding senior season, as well
as cornerbacks Marion Body and Jerry
Burgei, and All-American safety Keith
BUT THE replacements for all but
Girga-sh are tested, experienced
players who saw spot duty in 1982. Fif-
th-year senior John Lott, a sometime
starter the past two seasons, will step
into the secondary with senior safeties
Rich Hewlett and Evan Cooper. The
cornerback position opposite Lott will
probably be filled by sophomore Tony
Gant, who broke into the lineup midway
through the 1982 season.
Schembechler's concern for the
secondary, however, could be real.
Although the four starter's have
received a lot of playing time, the back-
ups have little experience or depth, and
with all the Big Ten teams using air at-
tacks, an inexperienced defensive back
c uld become Michigan's biggest weakness.
Senior safety Jeff Cohen was ready to
start as a sophomore when injuries
plagued his entire season. Now
seasoned on the special teams, Cohen
will also see some action in the secon-
dary this season. Sophomores Ivan
Hicks and Dieter Heren along with
freshman Dwayne Freeman could also
THREE OF the four linebacking
positions will be held by established
veterans. Senior Carlton Rose will
replace Thompson as the Wolverines' "
big play linebacker, having shown
prowess for stopping the sweep as well
as running the blitz last year.
Junior Mike Mallory would seem to
be the choice to fill Girgash's shows.

The rest of the linebacking corps will
include two-tome team leading tackler
Mike Boren, and converted fullback
Tom Hassel. Boren will be expected to
provide the leadership in the middle.
TIM ANDERSON, Bill Lewandowski,
and Mike Rheinhold lead the crew of
linebacking reserves none of whom
have been given a chance to prove him-
self as a Wolverine.
Middle guard Al Sincich, who has
started since his freshman season, will
spearhead the defensive line, and will
be flanked by Kevin Brooks and
either Mike Hammerstein, Dave
Merideth, or Clay Miller.
Brooks, at 6-6 230 pounds, could be the
best pass rusher of the group as com-
pared with former Wolverine and now
St. Louis Cardinal Curtis Greer when he
,got off to a fast start last season.
For the past two years, Schem-
bechler has worried that the defensive
front has not had enough sacks. This
was especially apparent when Brooks
was injured in the middle of 1982. For
the line to register sacks this-season the
down linemen must produce pressure
and the outside linebackers, Rose and
Hassel will have to be successful on the
If the rest of the defense can not put
opponents in a hole, punter Don
Bracken will be there to help. Bracken,
entering his fourth year as Michigan's
punter, has led the Big Ten in net pun-
