ON THE other hand, the Michigan
layers and coaches are not just
reparing for another football game

fullback Dan Rice. "But this year

series to support his statement. Bo

State had what Schembechler called
the best offensive football team he has
played against in the Big Ten.
ON THE surface, this game doesn't
Illinois at Wisconsin
What to watch: The Illini may still be fly-
ing high on the momentum 'of last
week's trouncing of Iowa, but the
Badgers are not about to let Mike
White's crew walk all over them. Gary
Ellerson and company accumulated 625
yards of total offense in the Badger's 49-
0 win over Northwestern. This one
should be a high-scoring battle.
Finnesota at Indiana
What to watch: The bottom of the Big
Ten faces off in this one. Neither club
has shown much thus far as Minnesota
has already surrendered 202 points
e Big Ten
while the Hoosiers have only scored 54
in four outings.
Northwestern at Iowa
What to watch: Those rebuilding Wild-
cats sure have made great progress as
they've averaged 2.5 points per game
thus far and are last in the conference
in total defense. Chuck Long's
Hawkeyes have something to prove.
Looks like an Iowa romp.
Purdue at Ohio State
What to watch: The Buckeyes are back
on track, but so is Purdue QB Scott
Campbell. The senior connected on 30 of
50 passes last week against MSU.
look to be any different than any of
Michigan's 12 previous victorious
outings. The Wolverines are currently
3-1 overall with a spotless 2-0 conferen-
ce mark following typical Michigan
trouncings of Wisconsin and hapless
Indiana. The offense is averaging an
impressive 404 yards a game, with over
300 of those yards coming on the
And although the defense has had its
share of problems, yielding 303 yards a
game, and over 200 yards a game
through the air, it did hold down the
Badgers and Hoosiers enough to give
the Wolverines a comfortable margin of
victory in both games.
Michigan did receive a setback this
week when senior linebacker Mike
Boren underwent knee surgery, ending
his collegiate career. Boren, the team's
leading tackler for the past two years,
was atop that category again with 42
stops already this year. He will now
finish as the fifth all-time Wolverine
tackler with 368, just 10 shy of the man
right ahead of him, Calvin O'Neal. Star-
ting in place of Boren will be sophomore
linebacker Mike Reinhold who was red-
shirted last year as a freshman.
ALSO ABSENT from the starting
lineup for Michigan today will be
Gilvanni and Steve Johnson, the first-
and second-string flankers who were
suspended for curfew violations.
Sophomore Triando Markray will get
his first start at flanker in place of the
two Johnsons. As a senior at Detroit
DePorres high school, Markray
averaged 36.3 yards a catch.
Like the Wolverines, the Spartans
have had their share of problems and in-
juries, but unlike Michigan, have had
more trouble on the field and come into
the contest with a 2-1-1 mark and an 0-1-1

Following a squeaker win over lowly
Colorado, State shockeda lot of people
with its 28-23 upset over Notre Dame.
However, a costly loss to Illinois and a
disappointing tie with Purdue have
brought Spartan fans back down to ear-
IN THE Illinois game, Perles not only
lost starting quarterback Dave Yarema
for the season, but he also lost
Yarema'ssbackup, Rick Kolb, forcing
third-string sophomore quarterback
Clark Brown into the game.
Then, against the Boilermakers,
Perles watched his team blow two
leads, fall behind and eventually
salvage a tie when All-World kicker
Ralf Mojsiejenko booted a 59-yard field
goal on the last play of the game.
The Spartans are averaging only 242
yards a game offensively and have
surrendered over 375 yards defen-
sively. Two of the mainstays of State's
defense, linebackers Derek Bunch and
Carl Banks have both been hurt, but
Perles said that he expects Bunch to
start and a decision on Banks will be
made at game time.
The game itself though, will settle the
big decision of the day and give the
winner all-important bragging rights
while giving the loser a year of listening
to those comments.

with new look
"Wait'til next year."
Such is the rallying cry of losing
teams. Such was the-battle cry for the
Michigan hockey team last season as it
struggled to a dismal 14-22 record and
ninth-place finish in the then 12-team
Central Collegiate Hockey Association.
WELL, NEXT YEAR has arrived,
and Wolverines' head coach John Gior-
dano has made some major changes in
an attempt to turn around his team's
The result, that should be
displayed tonight when Michigan faces
U-M Dearborn at Yost Arena, will in-
clude a new system of offense, a new
version of penalty killing, and an
overall team that possesses some new
faces who will move down the ice much
faster than the old ones.
"We've increased our speed up front,"
said Giordano. "We have some new
players that are better with the puck as
well as better all-around hockey
THE NEW ARRIVALS he speaks of
are freshmen John Bjorkman, Dan
Goff, Brad Jones, and Bruce McNabb,
all of whom are centers with goal-
scoring capabilities. They will be coun-
ted on heavily in Giordano's new of-
fensive-minded approach on the ice.
"We're going to throw a fourth
man into the offense this year," ex-
plained the Michigan coach, who is en-
tering his third complete season at the
helm. "The offsidedefensemen will join
the forward on his side up the ice,
creating a two-wave attack along with
the two other forwards. This type of of-
fense is revolutionary to us and college
Wolverine fans can also look for a
new penalty-killing system that
features only one offenseman along
with three defenders inside the face-off
BUT ALL THESE changes probably
won't be successful right away, as the
team has only been on the ice for one
week. "I think it will take until Christ-
mas to determine how good we'll be,"
But a new style of play will not be the
only change for Michigan. Here are a
few more items to include on your
* Sophomore defenseman Greg
Hudas, a transfer from Notre Dame,
who at 6-5, 210 may be the biggest
player in college hockey.
* Watch for the play of sophomore
right wing Frank Downing, who Gior-
dano said is the most improved player
in camp thus far.
* There are new lights in Yost Arena
that shine down from the sides instead
of directly over the ice.
ANOTHER DIFFERENCE is the ad-
dition of U-M Dearborn to the schedule.
The Wolves are seriously upgrading
their hockey program in hopes of
joining the CCHA in a few years and
will play six teams in the conference
Last year, Dearborn was runner-up
in the NAIA tournament and their
roster includes three All-Americans:
forwards Gary Charison and Ryan
Willette, and defenseman Jim
Brailean. They also have a new coach
in Ray DeGrendel.
"Since this is my first year, you can
discount the past," DeGrendel said.
"Our schedule is twice as tough this
AS FAR AS becoming a future mem-
ber of the CCHA, DeGrendel likes the
possibilities. "We have the resources
here to do it, but it will take a lot of time
and work. I'm optimistic about our
This game will be of particular in-
terest for two of the Michigan seniors.
Ray Dries and John DeMartino both
played at Dearborn three years ago
before transferring across campus, and
Dries' brother, Rick, still plays for the
"I've played against him once before,
so I'm used to it, but it's still exciting,
said Ray. "He's a defenseman and I'm a
forward so we go into the corners
together.When I was there, the guys
running the team didn't know hockey,
but I hear they've got a good guy
SAID DEMARTINO, "I understand
it's a lot more organized over there from
the guys I know," added DeMartino.
Although Dearborn plays at a lower
level of college hockey, that will be an
advantage to them in this game
because they have been practicing sin-
ce Labor Day. Michigan, meanwhile, is
,a Division I school and couldn't begin
workouts until October 1. Plus, U-M
Dearborn will have a game under its
belt after motor-coaching it down to
Columbus to tangle with Ohio State last
night. But Giordano isn't worried about
that at all.
"They should be more prepared than
we are, but that doesn't concern me,"
he said. "I haven't said one word about
this game to the team. Once they're on
the ice, they'll be ready."

MSU blanks Blue stickers, 2-0,
Wolverines' record falls to 2-3
By CHRIS GERBASI
Michigan versus Michigan State: archrivals. The game
wasn't football, but the intensity on the field was the same as
the Spartan stickers battled to a 2-0 victory over Michigan in
a field hockey match yesterday afternoon at Ferry Field.
The Wolverines carried the play through most of the first
half. They had numerous opportunities off of corner shots,
but failed to put the ball in the net. Forward Lisa Shofield
narrowly missed scoring on a shot from a set play off a cor-
ner and wing Jamie Fry hit the side of the net, but the half
ended in a scoreless tie.
"REALISTICALLY, Michigan outplayed us in the first
half," said State coach Rich Kimball, "They followed the ball
well and they had us back on our heels. We were fortunate to
play like that without being scored upon."
psychologically after the first goal."
MICHIGAN State continued to keep heavy pressure on
Terry and the Wolverines' defense until late in the game when
Michigan's offense once again had several corners and op-
portunities out in front. Schofield drilled two shots off of cor-
ners, only to have them blocked by Spartan defenders, and co-
captain Kay McCarthy was stopped in the crease by goalie
The Wolverines' efforts were all for naught, however, and
State iced the game on a goal by Wendy Clark with five
minutes remaining. Murphy recorded the shutout, the Spar-
tans' fourth straight shutout victory. The victory was also
State's first against a Big Ten opponent in two years.
The game was hard-fnuht which is tn he exnected when
