By RON POLLACK
Doubting Thomas' of the Michigan foot-
ball world beware, Wolverine head coach Bo
Schembechler said that last week's passing
performance against Purdue was no fluke.
In Michigan's 42-10 victory over the
Boilermakers, quarterback Steve Smith
threw for four touchdown passes, including a
41-yard toss to Triando Markray which was
the longest of the year for Michigan. Now
that Smith's sore shoulder finally appears
healed, Air Schembechler looks like it's
here to stay.
"GET SERIOUS" say the Doubting
Thomas' who've heard this song and dance
all too often.
Schembechler insists that he couldn't be
more serious.
"The fact that Smith's arm is better
means we can throw more and throw deep,"
Schembechler said. "Those who don't think

we can throw deep are mistaken.
"I'M GOING TO throw the ball so deep
that (defensive backs) had better start run-
ning backwards. If Smith can keep throwing
like that, they'd better back up. I'm a lot
more encouraged about our passing than
I've been all year."
Schembechler added that it was unfor-
tunate that the one-sidedness of the Purdue
game precluded Smith from playing more.
"It's really quite a shame that when he
gets going like that, you can't keep him in,"
Schembechler said. "There's no telling
what he'd have done because they weren't
shutting him down. He made about two bad
checks and that was about it. He threw one
bad pass. Otherwise, he. was very, very
good."
ALTHOUGH HIS shoulder has prevented
him from being very, very good for most of

the season, Smith1

They stormed down the doors, they
blocked the hallways! Yes, it seems
that the members of the Progressive
Student Network are once again ven-
ting out their frustration for another
losing week in Griddes.
Last time, you remember they sat in
Vice President Billy Frye's office for 24
straight hours hoping to get clues for
the right teams to pick. This time it was
an engineering professor's office.
"I know the University is supplying
defensive strategy to select teams
throughout the country," said an
outraged PSN member. "I mean look at
all the low scoring games last week,
Michigan State giving up only 3 points!

Braves'Murphy

named NL

NEW YORK (AP) - Dale Murphy of
the Atlanta Braves captured his second
consecutive National League Most
Valuable Player award yesterday,
winning in a' landslide over Andre
Dawson of the Montreal Expos.
Murphy, 27, became only the fourth
player since the award was instituted in
1931 to be the NL MVP in consecutive
years. Ernie Banks of the Chicago
Cubs won the award in 1958 and '59; Joe
Morgan of Cincinnati in 1975-76 and
Mike Schmidt of Philadelphia in 1980-
81.
MURPHY RECEIVED 21 of 24 first-
place votes cast by a panel comprised
of the two members of the Baseball Writer's
Association of America from each
National League city. He wound up
with 318 points as each panelist voted
for 10 players.
Dawson got one first place vote and
213 points, followed by Schmidt with 191

points and Pedro Guerrero of Los
Angeles with 182. Schmidt and Guerrero
also each received one first-place vote.
Last year, Murphy won the award
despite a season-ending slump as the
Braves won the National League West
Division. This year, with slugging third
baseman Bob Horner out of the lineup,
Murphy carried the club through Sep-
teipber, although the Braves finished
three games back of the Los, Angeles
Dodgers in NL West.
At season's end, Murphy had become
only the fourth National League 30-30
man with 36 homers and 30 stolen
bases. He batted .302 with 121 RBI and
131 runs scored, and he did much of the
damage in September.
Bucks 97, Knicks 90
NEW YORK (AP) - Sidney Moncrief
scored 35 points and Bob Lanier scored
seven of his 15 points during a 14-1
Milwaukee streak in the fourth quarter
to lift the Bucks to a 970-90 National
Basketball Association victory over the
New York Knicks last night.
The Knicks, who lost their fourth
straight game after two season-opening
victories, led 81-74 on a basket by
Darrell Walker with 7:33 to play.
Alton Lister, who scored 14 points for
Milwaukee, started a string of nine
straight points with a basket and Nate
Archibald followed with a three-point
goal before Lanier started his string of
seven straight Bucks points that gave
them an 86-82 lead with 4:26 left. Mon-
crief, who had 12 points in the fourth
quarter, then scored to make it 88-82,
and the Knicks never got closer than
three the rest of the way.
