... out for season

Inside linebacker Mike Boren's
season is over, according to the
Michigan Athletic Department. Ap-
parently the same holds true for his
college career.
Boren suffered a partial tear in his
left knee last Saturday against Indiana
and had surgery Monday.
THE TIMING for the senior's injury
could not have been worse. The
National Collegiate Athletic
Association rule on red-shirting states
that if a player plays in more than three
games, he cannot regain a year of
eligibility even if an injury keeps him

out of play the rest of the season, accor-
ding to NCAA spokesperson Janice
Bump. The Indiana game was the four-
th of the year for both Boren and the
"I talked to (assistant) coach (Gary)
Moeller," Boren said. "I think I just
missed the deadline. They're looking
into it. Maybe I could protest."
That is unlikely to be successful,
though, since Bump said "there are no
exceptions" to the red-shirt rules.
THE INJURY, Boren said, might be
related to earlier knee problems.
"I've been banged up all year,"
Boren said. "I haven't been 100 percent
all year. It's been one knee after
another. It could be related. I did
something to my left knee during two-a-
days. I hyperextended it. I didn't think
it was that bad."
The manner in which Boren sustained
the injury certainly qualifies as out of
the ordinary since no contact was in-
"It was nothing," Boren said. "I went
back for a pass drop, I tried turning and
I just fell."

Sophomore flankers Gilvanni John-
son and Steve Johnson have been
suspended indefinitely by Michigan
football coach Bo Schembechler for
violation of the team's curfew
Neither will play in Saturday's game
at Michigan State.
SCHEMBECHLER has a policy of not
commenting on rule violations by his
players, but Michigan Sports Infor-
mation Director Bruce Madej confir-
med yesterday that the coach had
suspended the two players.
Gilvanni Johnson started all four
Michigan games this season, catching
one pass for 12 yards. Steve Johnson
played in all the Wolverine games and
did not catch a pass but did gain nine
yards rushing on one carry.
Triando Markray, a 6-2, 185 pound
sophomore from Detroit, will start in
place of Gilvanni Johnson on Saturday.
That will be Markray's first appearan-
ce as a Wolverine.

Gilvanni and Steue Johnson
... suspended indefinately

Make no mistake about it, the
Michigan football team is already get-
ting psyched up for Saturday's game
against rival Michigan State.
In fact, there seems to be a bit more
excitement for this year's Michigan -
Michigan State game than normal. The
Spartans surprising 2-1-1 start, in-
cluding an upset win over Notre Dame,
is responsible for that.
"I THINK there's a little more ex-
citement in our camp for this game,"
Michigan head coach Bo Schembechler
said. "The fact that they've generated
some enthusiasm, and have won some
games adds to the game."
IF MICHIGAN State wanted to send
this excitement wildly out of control, all
they had to do was win their first four
games. At least that's what a number
of Michigan players were thinking
when the Spartans jumped out to a 2-0
"We were all hoping they'd be
undefeated because we wanted to build
this game up as big as possible," said
tailback Rick Rogers.
And of course, there are the usual
bragging rights to consider.

"IT'S EMOTIONAL," said quarter-
back Steve Smith, a native of Grand
Blanc. "I'm just under an hour away
from both. I know people who go
Said defensive back Evan Cooper,
"To me it's going to determine who has
the best football team in the state of
For some Wolverine players, the
Michigan State game presents an op-
portunity to silence some nasty words
about the Wolverines.
"I'm from the state myself," said
defensive tackle Vince DeFelice.
"They recuited me and a lot of their
recruitment toward me was putting
Michigan down. I'm really excited
about playing them."
If Michigan is to beat Michigan State,
its coaching staff and players believe
that they must put-forth nothing short of
their best effort.
"IT'LL BE a though game," Smith
said. "If we don't play tough we won't
beat them. It's definitely a big one."
Said Schembechler, "We always
seem to get Michigan State's best ef-
fort. Regardless of record, they always
play well against us."


Larkin: Sho

Barry Larkin, like every other
amateur athlete, has a dream of one
day playing in the Olympics but as time
goes on his dream is looking more and
more like a reality.
Two weeks ago, Ray Fisher Stadium
in Ann Arbor was one of the 65 regional
sites throughout the country holding the
Olympic baseball tryouts. Each coach
at these tryouts was to recommend one
or two players to proceed to Louisville
on October 21 for the nationals.
MICHIGAN baseball coach Bud Mid-
daugh ran the tryouts and recommen-
ded two sophomores, pitcher Scott
Kamieniecki and shortstop Barry
Larkin, to advance on to the Blue Grass
state. From among the invitees to
Louisville, Southern California baseball
coach Ron Dato is to pick 20 for his
Olympic team.
Despite the odds, Larkin still feels
confident in his making the team. "I
think about making the team a lot, it,
would be a dream come true to.
represent our coqntry and proving we!
are the best."
The fact baseball is being played only
as an exhibition in next summer's
Olympics doesn't seem to phase the
sophomore. With a wide grin, Larkin
answered, "Hey it's the Olympics and
that says enough in itself. It is a big
sporting event where the greatesti
athletes in the world get together."
ACCOMPANYING the glory of the
Olympics is the added pressure. "I
would definitely feel more pressure
playing in the Olympics than I have
ever felt in my life," he said. "To me
crowds get really scary. At last year's
College World Series I could not stop
shaking, it was awful."
The New York Times

Larkin, however, had gotten used to
the pressure of making major
decisions. The 5-11 sophomore hails
from Cincinnati where he not only
starred in baseball but where he also
earned All-State honors playing football
for perennial high school football
powerhouse Cincinnati Moeller.
As a result of his outstanding abilities
in both football and baseball, he
received scholarship offers from Notre
Dame, USC, Arizona St., Miami Fla.,
Texas and Michigan to play either
AT THIS time in his life he was faced
with many difficult decisions. He first
had to decide between baseball and
football, and then where to play.
Choosing between USC, Notre Dame

rt stop
and Michigan for football and between
Texas, Miami Fla., and Arizona St. for
baseball is like choosing between Miss
June and Miss July.
On top of that, the Cincinnati Reds
drafted him in the second round of the
1982 amateur draft and offered him a
reported $100,000 to sign with them out
of high school. So before deciding to at-
tend Michigan, he had to decide what
sport to play, then to play either college
or professional baseball and then
finally which school to play for. For a
senior in high school it was a heavy
burden to carry.
Larkin emphasized the fact it was
tough to turn down the Reds' offer, but
academics was more important to him



and his-family. "I wanted to come to
school to get something under my belt.
I hope to be drafted again after my
junior year. If I could sign then, I would
have gone through schooling and could
either choose to play pro ball or go to
graduate school."
FOR NOW, though, Larkin faces the
difficult challenge of making the Olym-
pic team. He carries impressive
freshman credentials with him: a .352
average, named the third team All-Big
Ten shortstop, and the most valuable
player in the Big Ten playoffs.
Middaugh feels both Larkin and Scott
Kamieniecki have good chances to
make the team. After sending both
Wolverines' names as recommen-
dations for Louisville, Middaugh has no
more influence in the tryouts but feels
the coaches will be impressed with both
Larkin feels Kamieniecki has an ex-
cellent shot to make it to Los Angeles
for the Games. "There aren't many
pitchers around with more ability than
Scott, only more experience." Coach
Middaugh obviously agrees with Larkin
as he pitched Kamieniecki in
Michigan's semi-final game against
eventual national champion Texas last
LARKIN FEELS that even if he
doesn't make the team he has a lot to
gain from the tryouts. "At last year's
World Series, I saw some guys that
were unbelievable and just playing with
them in the tryouts would help me out a
Within Barry Larkin lies one of
Michigan's greatest hopes for an
Olympic athlete and if successful in his
trek to Los Angeles, both Larkin and
the Olympic team will benefit greatly.

Sparky inkcs new pact

DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Tigers
have rewarded Manager Sparky An-
derson for the club's best finish in 15
years by extending his contract for two
Anderson replaced Les Moss in
Detroit in June 1979 after spending the
first nine years of his major league
managerial career at Cincinnati. The
extension runs through the end of the
1986 season.
"THIS WILL have a stabilizing effect
on a club that should contend for the
pennant for the next several years,"
Tigers' General Manager Bill Lajoie
said yesterday.
Anderson helped mold the Tigers into
a championship caliber team with the
development of such players as Alan
Trammell., Lou Whitaker, Jack Morris,
Lance Parrish and Dan Petry. The 1983
Tigers had the third best record in the
majors at 92-70.
Anderson's overall record with the
Reds and Tigers is 1,238 victories and 912
defeats. His .576 winning percentage is
the highest among current major
league managers.

The Michigan Crew Team is holding
its fourth annual Row-a-thon on the

large tank of water, over 100 crew
members will be rowing continuously
from Wednesday until Friday.
The Crew Team hopes to earn bet-
ween $10,000 and $15,000. The money
will be put toward travel expenses for
out of town meets. The largest amount
of the money, though, will be allotted to
the Michigan Rowing Association. The

Piston guards clash

The rivalry for the Pistons' shooting
guard 'position apparently isn't as
friendly as reported.
John Long and Vinnie Johnson scuf-
fled during the team's Monday evening
practice, exchanging shoves and a few
punches before teammates separated
JOHNSON WANTED to pursue Long
after the fight but was restrained by
rookie Ken Austin.
The incident began when the two
collided while engaged in a full-court
Piston coach Chuck Daly said nothing
to either player in front of the crowd of
about 50 that witnessed the scuffle.
JOHNSON, A fifth-year pro from
Baylor, claimed the starting guard
position last year when Long pulled a
groin muscle and was ineffective upon
his return.
Long is a sixth-year pro and the all-

Excitement spread across row 63 as

screamed Skip.
"Pleeeeese, you have to play it,"

head as added encouragement. Then
there was silence as instruments met
mouths, but the sounds heard were
those of "The Bugs Bunny Road Runner
Theme Song."
Ciffy, Bulldog, and Kig Jam hissed as
loud as they could. "I don't know why
they don't play it!" wailed Winky, tears
-welling in her eyes.
But the sounds that followed sent the
row into a jubilant ecstacy as they

Do you think the seating arrangement

is handled


properly at Michigan Stadium?

LSA freshman
At.-least for students they should have sec-
tion seats, because with the students that's
the way it works out anyhow. It's like general
admission. With parents' and all other seats
around, it should stay seat by seat.


College of Engineering junior
It should be general admission, nobody sits
in their seat anyway, it's too much of a hassle.
