WOLVERINES MUST STOP WSU OPTION

The Michigan Daily - Friday September 9, 1983- Page 21

Cochran returns to secondary

By RON POLLACK
Notes, quotes, odds and ends
from the day before a Michigan
season opener:
Who would have ever thought that
1Mchigan would face a running team
cnd worry about the fact that they are
not accustomed to facing that sort of at-
tack?
:Yet, that is exactly the Wolverines
dilemma as they prepare for
tomorrow's game against Washington
- State which is an option-oriented team.
"It presents a problem," says Gary
"Moeller, Michigan's assistant head
coach and defensive coordinator. "It
helps that we've seen some option on
our own scrimmages. But theirs is dif-
ferent. It's a split back veer option."
***
Brad Cochran is back and the
Michigan coaching staff couldn't be
happier about the timing of his return.
Cochran, if you recall, started the fir-
st two games of the 1982 season at cor-
ierback, but then quit the team. He
transferred to Colorado following the
fall term, but was not happy there. So
x
Lot,
Hump his
are new
captains
By RON POLLACK
The Michigan football captains for
rthe 1983 season will be offensive guard
Stefan Humphries and defensive back
John Lott. The two seniors were elected
to be co-captains by their teammates.
According to Lott, the job of captain
covers a wide range of duties.
"Responsibilities include being a role
model, showing leadership, going to
pep rallies and meeting with (head
coach) Bo (Schembechler) once a
week."
Lott started in four games last season
and intercepted two passes, second
highest on the team.
The co-captaincy, he said, is
Ssomething he has had his eye on for
some time.
"I've been sort of thinking about it,"
. Itt said. "I saw as a freshman how
ithey elected captains and I thought it
would be a great honor. I'd watch what
other captains would do and what it
takes."
Humphries started in all 12 games at
offensive guard last season during
which time he earned First team All-
Big Ten and First team Academic All-
America honors.
The 6-4, 248 pound native of Broward,
Fla. started his career at Michigan as a
efensive lineman but was moved to of-
fense midway through his freshman
year.

he returned to Ann Arbor, worked out
his differences with head coach Bo
Schembechler and earned a starting
berth in the Wolverine secondary.
Following spring ball, Michigan
coaches expressec concern over the
defensive backfield, but Cochran's
return has helped alleviate some of
their concerns.
"Brad missed practically a year of
football, so that hurts," Moeller said.
"But we always felt he could be a
heckuva player. He gives us added
strength.
Injury update: Steve Smith's bruised
shoulder is not the only health problem
on the Wolverine squad. Defensive
tackle Mike Hammerstein has a
cracked bone in his hand. "Hammer-
stein is a guy we were counting on,"
Moeller said. "He was going to start."
Kevin Brooks and Vince DeFelice will
start at the two defensive tackle spots
with Dave Meredith seeing a good deal
of action.
Also injured is strong safety Jeff
Cohen who is wearing a cast on his right
hand because of a broken bone. Cohen,
who backs up Rich Hewlett, said that he
hopes to play Saturday.
Hammerstein, Cohen and Smith are
the only seriously injured Wolverine
players. Moeller said that a number of
other players have assorted bumps and
bruises, but nothing which the coaching
staff is overly concerned with.
"If they're not banged up a little bit,
you're probably not ready to play,"
Moeller said. "that's always been Bo's
philosophy. You want a few bumps and
bruises.
When asked if Michigan will shuttle
in its running backs, Moeller said, "I
think if a guy has a hot hand, you let
him play. It will be a game-feel decision
for the coaching staff."
Wolverine running back coach Tirrel
Burton said Thursday that no decision
has been made yet as to who the team's
starting tailback and fullback will be
against Washington State.
Starting Washington State left guard
Dan Lynch on what it will be like to play
in Michigan Stadium: "We played in
front of 95,000 last year at Tennessee
Stadium in Knoxville, but 105,000 people
is just not something you're used to
seeing every day of the week. So we're
preparing for it by changing our huddle
around a little bit so we can hear. We're
looking forward to playing in Michigan
Stadium. That's what college football is
all about."
