Smith to face Huskies tomorrow

The veil of mystery surrounding the
Michigan quarterback job has finally
been lifted. Steve Smith, bruised
shoulder and all, is expected to play
against Washington tomorrow.
"I think we'll try to play Steve Smith
some in this game," Michigan head
coach Bo Schembechler said yesterday.
"Whether he'll start or not I'm not sure,
or if he starts how long he'll go. But I
think it's in the best interests of our ball
club to get him back in there some."

tact," Moeller said. "I think
we have our normal bumps
and bruises. I guess it's
unusual to have so few
serious injuries, but it's a
good feeling. There are
probably teams who have lost
a lot more players than we have."
Although he missed a crucial extra
point last week against Washington
State, Todd Schlopy has apparently
hung onto the starting placekicking.
duties.
"(Placekicker) Bob Bergeron is also
making the trip with us, so we could use
him as well. But we'll probably open the
game with Todd Schlopy," Schem-
becher said.

Because of the distance involved in
travelling to Washington, the Michigan
players and coaches may find their
sense of time greatly distorted.
"The biggest thing is the adjustment
to sleeping and the time we play,"
Moeller said. "The kids can't adjust to
that time change in one day.
"WE'LL GET back (to Michigan) at
2:00 in the morning on Sunday. That
makes the week shorter, especially for
the coaches."
Perhaps the biggest challenge the
Wolverines will face this weekend will
be what to do on the lengthy plane rides.
Tight end Sim Nelson believes they'll
manage just fine.
"There's nothing you can do but get
on the plane and take some books and
study four hours there and four hours
back," he said. "You just go out there
and play the game and relax."
The Washington offense will be one of
the most balanced Michigan will face

Nonetheless, Moeller said
he expects to see a good deal
of Robinson Saturday.
"We know that he's a very
talented young man,"
Moeller said. "I'm sure
they'll work him into the
lineup earlier than last

the majority of the time. Of
Hinds has played well. So

this season, and this concerns the
Wolverine coaching staff.
"They do a lot of things with their of-
fense," Moeller said. "Basically, it's
how well we can adapt from the run to
the pass. We have to stop both sides of
their game. This is one of the best
team's we'll face.'
As if the starters on the Washington
offense aren't reason enough to worry
Moeller, special attention must also be
given to one of the Huskies' backups.
Jacque Robinson eaned All-Pac Ten
honors last season by gaining 926 yards,
despite not starting until the sixth game
of the year because of an ankle sprain
and rib injury. Once again, Robinson is
not in the starting lineup early in the
season although he is healthy. Instead,
he is out of the starting lineup because of
a weight problem which has reduced his
ispeed.
Last week against Northwestern,
Robinson only carried the ball four
times for 47 yards. Sterling Hinds took
his place at tailback and rushed for 80
yards on 12 carries.

maybe they're satisfied with him."
If Michigan defeats Washington, it
will mark the first time since 1978 that
the Wolverines will have started the
year 2-0.
"The teams are more even," Moeller
said. "We're playing a tougher
schedule than in previous years. We've
lost to some pretty good teams."
Washington head coach Don James

when asked if Saturday's game is a
Rose Bowl preview: "That'd be fine
with me. Bo would probably go along
with it too."
Washington's 34-0 victory over Nor-
thwestern last Saturday came as no
surprise to Michigan tight end Nelson.
"We know they lost a lot of people, but
they're always tough and they're just
like Michigan. They always have
people waiting in the wings to play."
. Moeller is not concerned about a
possible letdown next week against
Wisconsin following tomorrow's battle
against Washington. "The fact that it's
a Big Ten game should help," Moeller
said. "We're not in a position where
we're a superpower. Our kids know
they have to scratch and claw for every
victory."
