MYSTERY QB KEY TO WOLVERINE ATTACK

'M' faces tough Husky offense

i

(Continues trorn iage 1)
Hines, who gained 86 yards on 12
carries last week. Also in the backfield
will be fullback Walt Hunt, who had 58
yards on 9 carries against North-
western.
THE MAJOR weakness of the
Washington team is its secondary. The
Huskies lost all four starters from last
year's team, so the current defensive
backfield lacks experience. For-
tunately for the Huskies, their pass

rush managed to take the heat off of the
defensive backs last week, and James
hopes it can do the same against
Michigan. At Northwestern, the
Huskies had seven tackles for losses.
Schembechler would like to exploit
the Huskies' secondary, but the
Michigan quarterback situation could
make that difficult.
The Wolverines will start basically
the same lineup they did last week.
Rick Rogers, who picked up 124 yards
against Washington State will start and
see a lot of action at tailback. Fullback
Dan Rice will join Rogers and the
mystery quarterback in the backfield.
DEFENSIVELY, Michigan will have
to deal with a very balanced football
team. Last week against the Wildcats
Washington gained 309 yards on the
ground and 218 in the air. Michigan
usually has a tendency to be much more
vulnerable to the pass than the run,
so look for the Huskies to try to
establish an air attack.
Other than its secondary, the
Washington defense is solid. The defen-
sive line and linebacking corps are
filled with experienced lettermen. Last
week, Northwestern could gain just
seven yards rushing against the
Huskies.
Schembechler knows this game will
be a tough one and has nothing but
compliments for the Huskies.

"I think we will have to play great real tough intersectional battle."
football to win," the Michigan coach
said. "We'll have to make a great deal Of course, Bo would say tt
of improvement from the opening week Michigan was scheduled to play
in order to beat Washington. There's no pery Rock. This time, howeve
question about it, this is going to be a true.

Michigan tailback Rick Rogers, seen here in action versus Wisconsin last
season, will get the nod as starter in today's clash with. Washington. The
junior will be hard-pressed to match his 124-yard, opening day performance
as the Huskies held Northwestern to seven yards on the ground last week.

Wolverine
invitational

By MIKE BERRES
The women golfers from Indiana and Michigan State were
able to battle the elements (wind, cold, and rain) just a little
better than everyone else yesterday in the opening round of
the Lady Wolverine Invitational at the University of
Michigan golf course.
The top two teams are separated by one stroke with In-
diana on top. They outpaced an eight-team field which in-
cludes two Michigan squads, the Blue and the Maize, Ferris
State, Northern Illinois, Purdue, and Bowling Green.
THE FALCONS OF Bowling Green are third after 18 holes,
19 strokes behind the leaders. Then, only 19 shots separate
the third and seventh-place clubs.
Michigan's Blue squad is in fifth place just a stroke higher
than Northern Illinois.
Wolverine coach Sue LeClair was mildly disappointed with
her team's play. "I had hoped to have four girls under 85
(only one is). But four are playing in their first tournament
and three are freshmen," she noted..
LUANNE CHERNEY, a sophomore from Bloomfield Hills,
paced the Wolverine women with an 84. Freshman Val Madill
had an 86 in her first tournament.

"I didn't think I was (nervous), but I triple-bogied the first
hole, so I must have been," said Madill. a Flint native.
One player who wasn't affected by her first tournament was
Indiana's Michelle Redman. She tied for the low score of the
day by shooting a 77, which is one over par.
BARB MUCHA, a Michigan State senior, also shot a 77, but
was not satisfied with her effort. "I was hitting the ball
terrible. I putted really well (29 putts) which saved me."
While both the leaders finished below the 80 mark without
any University course experience, the Michigan women had
plenty of trouble although they've been practicing on it all
week. It was mainly the back nine holes which gave them
problems. When LeClair commented "if we could throw out
the backside," she was referring to the Blue squad's 43
average for the first nine holes, compared to 47 on the back
nine.
As the Wolverines and others struggled, Indiana and
Michigan State pulled away. The top two teams, had the
seven lowest individual scores. MSU's Lisa Marino and
Karen Romberg of the Hoosiers had 79's.
-The tournament continues today and Sunday with tee-off
both days scheduled for 8 a.m.

DETROIT (UPI) - Kicker Tom
Skladany has been released by thei
Detroit Lions, team officials confirmed
yesterday.
Skladany, one of the NFL's top pun-
ters, was freed after more than 12 mon-
ths of contract negotiations.
"IT'S FINALLY over," Skladany
said. "It's finally over ... Now I've got-
ta get on the horn and pound out a
deal."
Lion's General Manager Russ

e ease p
Thomas said the Lions had "rescinded
its rights" to Skladahy. He was not
waived since he had not signed a con-
tract with the team.
He has been a free agent since his
contract lapsed at the end of the 1982
season. Under NFL rules, the Lions
retained rights to him and would have
been entitled to compensation for a
team signing him.
BY RELEASING him, the Lions for-
feited rights to compensation. -

unter Skladany

"I went as far as I could go," said
Skladany. "You can only last so long
against a $50-million corporation
because they can hold out forever. I had
to do something.
"We had lost our (health) insurance
and my wife (Debbie) is due in mid-
November. If you're not signed or
waived-by the Monday after the first
game, you lose your insurance. We just
found out about that, nobody had told
me," he said.
Skladany was reported to be talking
to two or three teams.
Red Sox 6, Tigers 1
BOSTON (AP) - Rick Miller drove in
the tie-breaking run with a pinch triple
in the sixth inning, and the Boston Red
Sox added four more runs in the seven-
th last night, ending Detroit's six-game
winning streak with a 6-1 victory over
the Tigers.
The loss, coupled with Baltimore's 8-1
victory over Milwaukee, dropped the
second-place Tigers six games behind
the Orioles in the American League
East.
LEFT-HANDER Bobby Ojeda scat-
tered nine hits for his 10th victory in 17
decisions.
Miller, who signed a two-year con-
tract extending through the 1985 season
prior to the game, lined his triple to
right off starter Dan Petry, 17-9,
scoring Reid Nichols from third base.
The Red Sox shelled Petry in the
seventh when they scored four runs on
four hits and a walk. Tony Armas
doubled home one run, then Dave
Stapleton walked with the bases loaded
to force in a run and Eddie Jurak
singled for two more RBI.
The Tigers put two runners on base in
six different innings but managed to
score only in the fifth on a double by
Lou Whitaker, an infield out and Larry
Herndon's sacrifice fly.

Wings ink Gare
DETROIT (AP) - Danny Gare, the
Detroit Red Wings third-leading scorer
last season, has signed a three-year
contract with the National Hockey
League team, the club announced.
"Danny Gare brings more to the
team than just goals and assists, said
Red Wings' General Manager Jim
Devellano in a statement announcing
the signing. "His attitude, hard work
and unwillingness to quit are positive
influences on the club, too."
Terms of the agreement were not
disclosed.
Liberty's actory upheld
NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) - Australia
II, unable to win on the water, lost on
land as well yesterday when an inter-
national sailing jury denied its protest'
of U.S. defender Liberty's victory in the
second race of the America's Cup.
The decision leaves intact Liberty's 2-
0 lead in the best-of-seven series, with
the third race scheduled for today.The
Australians had claimed that Liberty
skipper Dennis Conner tacked into their
water on the second windward leg Thur-
sday, cutting too sharply to the left in
front of the challenger and forcing
Aussie helmsman John Bertrand to
veer off to avoid a collision.
But a five-member jury of the In-
ternational Yacht Racing Union, after
hearing more than four hours of
testimony and evidence, upheld Liber-
ty's one minute, 33 second victory.
The jury ruled that the two boats
cleared by about 4 feet at their closest
point, not 18-24 inches as claimed by the
Australians.
