TEAM

By CHUCK JAFFE
Despite giving up 61 points and 713
yards of total offense last week against
Iowa, Northwestern football coach
Dennis Green is confident that his team
has improved this season.
Green, speaking by telephone at
Michigan coach Bo Schembechler's
weekly media luncheon, said that a dif-
ficult early season schedule and inex-

But Schembechler is not discounting
the Wildcats because of their youth.
The Michigan coach is worried that his
team will suffer a letdown after Satur-
day's emotional 42-0 win over Michigan
State.
"I'm getting ready for the toughest
week coaching I've ever had," Schem-
bechler said. "We've got to be tough.
I've got to push them.
"WE'RE GOING to see a.lot of passes
this week," Schembechler added.
"Northwestern is a good offensive
team. They can move the football.
They've got good backs, good
receivers, a good quarterback and a
good tight end - he caught 17 passes
against us last year." k
Last season, the Wildcats attempted a
Big Ten record of 71 passes against
Michigan but still lost the game 49-14.
Green said the high number of passes
was his way of keeping Michigan's of-
fense off of the field, and allowed Nor-
thwestern to stay in the game.
"We just wanted to keep our defense
off the field last year," Green said.
"It's not good to pass that much, and I
hope we don't have to."
GRID NOTES: Michigan tail-
back Brian Mercer is out
for the season with a knee injury, ac-
cording to Schembechler. Mercer will
undergo surgery later this week, after a
bruise to the knee heals, the coach said.
Inside linebacker Mike Reinhold has
a slight nerve problem in his neck,
which might force him out of this
week's game, Schembechler said. He
added that -his only healthy inside
linebackers are Mike Mallory, Jeff
Akers and Tim Anderson (who is
playing with an ankle sprain). The
Wolverines have already lost inside
linebackers Mike Boren, Andy Moeller,
Phil Lewandowski and freshman John

Balourdos to injuries this season.
Mercer's injury will mean that
sophomore Ben Logue moves up to the
third tailback position. Logue, who
scored his first collegiate touchdown
against the Spartans, has run for 56
yards on eight carries, a seven-yard
average. Freshman Gerald White, or
sophomore Thomas Wilcher will move
into Logue's spot, Schembechler said.
Wilcher's surgically repaired knee is
apparently at full strength, and the
coach said he may put the Detroit
speedster in the lineup as a kick retur-
ner.
DEFENSIVE LINEMAN Mike
Hammerstein, who was set to start
before breaking his arm this fall, retur-
ned to action against MSU. "Mike's
back," Schembechler said. "It'll take
him a little while, but he's got time. I'
think, down the stretch, we are going to
need him."
Schembechler, on the kicking of Bob
Bergeron, who connected on all three
field goad attempts, but missed 2 of 3
extra points against the Spartans: "If
we score a touchdown the first time
down the field, I'm going to tell the
referee that 'We'll take the ball at the 20
^n 'h^ ight hah o-lr'"?

By SCOTT DIMETROSKY
Question: What club or varsity sport
had the winningest season last year?
Answer: The Michigan Lacrosse'
Club.
ALTHOUGH FEW people realize it,
the lacrosse club had a spectacular 19-0
season last year. The team, now in fall
practice for its spring season, is in the
midst of a 27-game winning streak. Yet
fan interest for the sport is low.
"Our' spectators last year consisted
mostly of mothers, fathers, brothers,
-and sisters - about a total of 10 or 12
-people, said third-year coach Rick
-Bays.
Bays pointed out that inclement
'weather might have discouraged a lot
of fans from attending the games last
season. The team played in late March
and early April, when the midwest
weather is often cold and rainy. In fact,
only two games last year were played
without rain.
Despite a shortage of spectators, the
players themselves show a tremendous
zeal for their team. Because lacrosse is
a club sport, attendance for practice is
not mandatory, yet close to 50 people
have consistently shown up for prac-

tices this fall. This is even more im-
pressive since the season does not begin
until early spring. The president of the
club, Steve Friedlander is pleased with
the turnout.

The players include undergraduate
students and graduate students, and
alumni. Mark Leibovich, a Michigan
freshman who is serving as assistant
coach, epitomizes this spirit.
"I played lacrosse for four years in
high school and I hoped to play for
Michigan," Leibovich said, "but my
knees were in too bad of shape. I hope
that I can contribute to the team as an
assistant coach."
Most veteran players agree that this
year's team will be just as good, if not

better, than last year's squad. Only a
few players have left since last year,
and the tremendous turnout of new
players should increase depth to this
year's team.
Experience should also play a part in
improving Michigan's only undefeated
team. Like hockey, lines in lacrosse are
changed every 1 to 2 minutes. While
most teams play three or four midfield
lines a game, Michigan played about
eight lines a game last year.
"We usually had such a big lead by
the end of the first half," coach Bays
said, "that we could keep changing
(midfield) lines in the second half.
Nearly all of our guys got playing
time."
Coach Bays feels that Michigan is one
of the top three club lacrosse teams in
the country. Last year the team ranked
first in midwest club lacrosse teams,
beating out such clubs as Purdue, In-
diana, and Iowa. They also rolled over
some varsity teams, including
Michigan State and Notre Dame. Their
excellence, however, creates difficulty

"We'd love to play the top midwest.
varsity teams, such as Denison, and
Ohio Wesleyan," said captain Bob
Holman. "But they are afraid to lose to
a club team so scheduling games with
them is difficult."
The lacrosse club's first scrimmage
is on October 21 at home against
Toledo.
