Blue Lines
117 By JIM DAVIS
WVHAT A DIFFERENCE four years can make.
When Jim McCauley walked onto the Blue hockey
team in the fall of 1980, no one could have expected him
to do the job he has done. After all, Michigan is a
tradition-rich school which has done pretty well in
hockey over the years. How could a walk-on be expected
to carry a big load down the road?
Now four years later, his steady play and leadership
have proven invaluable to the young Wolverines, in par-
ticular during this season which has seen the team
struggle due to youth, injuries, and lack of depth.
"He's been like night and day," said Michigan head
coach John -Giordano of his high-scoring senior's
development.
McCauley has carried the 9-14-1 Wolverines through
thick and thin this season, more recently through the
thin. Currently Michigan stands in an eighth-place tie
with Lake Superior, against whom the Wolverines lost
and tied this past weekend in Sault Ste. Marie. Only
eight teams make the CCHA playoffs (out of 11 teams).
Both teams have three series remaining, next
weekend on the road (Michigan at Ferris State, the
Lakers at Michigan State) and the last two at home.
'If Michigan is to finish strong and make the playoffs,
several players are going to have to step forward and
help McCauley pick up the slack, particularly in the
goal-scoring department. His linemates, Ray Dries and
Chris Seychel, are the only other players to score goals
in double-figures.
In fact, 40 of the Wolverines' 106 goals (38 percent)
have come from the Big Three. Obviously, goal-scoring
has been a problem all season for Michigan.
McCauley entered this season as the leading returning
scorer, having registered 51 points in 78 games.'
In October, McCauley and fellow-senior right-winger
Kelly McCrimmon were named co-captains for the 1983-
84 Wolverines.
Giving the captaincy to McCauley and McCrimmon
was the most logical thing to do, when it is considered
that they are the only four-year lettermen on the squad.
McCauley's junior season set him up for the respon-
sibility of being a captain. Early last season Giordano
decided to team McCauley with co-captains Ted Speers
and Brad Tippett, who were expected to shoulder a great
deal of the burden on the young squad.-
Putting McCauley with Tippett and Speers was a bold
move, but Giordano knew what he was doing. The
Wolverines' mentor was looking to the future, because
he knew McCauley would probably take over the burden
of leadership this season.
The plan was successful and in the process McCauley
gained a valuable season of knowledge by playing with
the two leaders.
"I had the privelege of playing with those guys for two
years," said McCauley. "They were such smart hockey

McCauley a leader for
injury-ridden Blue icers
players, some of it had to rub off on me."
Rub off it did. McCauley scored 13 goals and added 21
assists on the season, scoring better than a point A game.
In addition, his defensive play improved, due in part to
his expressed role as the defensive player on the line,
"because they had so much offense in them."
The 5-10, 174 McCauley cast himself in the role of
defensive forward again this season, but the scoring is
coming along at remarkable pace.
The Detroit native has already topped his goal-
production of last season with 16 and has registered 20
assists for 36 points.
McCauley has scored at least one goal in 10 of 12 CCHA
series, and has been shut out completely only one
weekend out of 16, against Tech in early November.
That's pretty consistent, something Michigan hasn't
seen much of this season, unless you count the rash of in-
juries, which has steadily plagued the Wolverines.
Injuries have taken a heavy toll, especially on defense.
Junior Mike Neff has been out since the first week of
December with a knee injury. He might be back this
weekend.
Sophomore transfer Greg Hudas went down with a
knee problem in the same game, but hasn't come back
yet due to grade problems despite now being healthy.
Todd Carlile, the best puck-handling blueliner, missed
several series with an infected knee.
Senior John DeMartino is out with another knee in-
jury, suffered two weeks ago in the 12-1 loss to Michigan
State. He probably won't be back. Even Joe Grusser,
who played his first college game in the same loss
DeMartino was hurt in, is unavailable. He has a
separated shoulder. Pat Goff has been playing with a
concussion and Bill Brauer, the only other defenseman
at the start of the season, is feeling the effects of battle
fatigue.
S ounds like a lot of injuries, eh? And that's just on
defense.
Seychel missed some time with a bruised thigh. Mc-
Crimmon spent a month on the sidelines with a
separated shoulder. Sophomore right winger Frank
Downingfinally got *o play against Superior after sitting
out since December with yet another knee injury.
Taking all of this into account, it might be easy to use
injuries as a scapegoat. But they are part of the game.
The Wolverines still have a chance to make the playof-
fs. When Neff returns, every key player except DeMar-
tino will be skating.
Michigan holds its destiny in its own hands. A sweep
over Ferris would be a shot in the arm (knee?).
A sweep would allow a realistic shot at sixth place. It
would almost assure the playoffs, which only four weeks
ago seemed a cinch. Since then the Wolverines have lost
five and tied once.
It's time for the Wolverines to rally around McCauley
and bear down. Someone has to help put the puck in the
net, and everyone has to help protect Mark Chiamp.

Blue
trackst ers
tune-up
By CHRISTOPHER GERBASI
The Blue men's track team hurdled
another tune-up meet this past weekend
at the Eastern Michigan Classic in
preparation for the Central Collegiate
Championships.
Coach Jack Harvey said he is
still"laying low," simply looking for
improved performances each week
before keying 9n the Centrals,
February 18, at Eastern Michigan. In
fact, most of the Wolverine distance
runners were held out of the com-
petition in Ypsilanti.
THOMAS Wilcher did not lay low this
weekend, but rather raced to first place
in the 55-meter high hurdles. Wilcher,
who had been bothered by a calf pull,
ran a 7.37, his best time of the season.
Derrick Stinson and Phil Webb finished
third and fourth, respectively.
Todd Steverson came within an
eyelash of qualifying for the NCAA
Championships in the 500-meter run.
The qualifying standard time is 1:02.79
and Steverson's time was 1: 02.86.
This Saturday at the Spartan Relays
in East Lansing, Steverson will be part
of a distance-medly relay team which
Harvey hopes will qualify for the
NCAAs. Bob Boynton will run the first
leg, followed by Steverson, Dan Smith
and anchor Ron Simpson. At Eastern,
Simpson finished third in the mile run
with a time of 4:07.
The Wolverines also grabbed the top
two positions in the long jump and the
shot put. Derek Harper and Vince Bean
leaped to first and second finishes,
while Scott Erikkson and Johnny
Nielsen also finished one-two, thereby
outdistancing all their competitors for
the fourth consecutive meet.
Still, no one from Michigan has
qualified for 'the NCAAs yet. "We
haven't tried to focus on one meet yet,"
said Harvey. "We're getting good
workouts in and we hope to get
maximum performances in the Cen-
trals and the Big Tens. The kids know
what meets are important and when to
try to peak."

SPOR TS OF THE DAIL Y:
Blue grapplers lose two

By STEVE HUNTER
Superstitious people say that bad
things happen in threes. If that's true,
then the Blue grapplers used up all
their bad luck last weekend.
To begin with, Michigan dropped both
its dual meets, losing to Iowa State, 35-
6, and Minnesota, 31-13. Against Iowa
State, the only win came in the 177-
pound weight class when Bill Elbin pin-
ned his opponent.
EVEN THE Wolverines big gun, Joe
McFarland, lost a decision to Iowa
State's Kevin Darkus. It was Darkus'
third win over McFarland this. season.
"He went out there and took the mat-
ch to me," McFarland said. "I sat back
a little bit I think." Looking forward to
the next time they meet, McFarland
feels he'll have to be more aggressive.
"I'm going to have to get the first take
down," he said.
McFarland's next chance to meet
Darkus is at Nationals, where he said

"Anybody can beat anybody." Because
this is true, McFarland also added,
"I'm not looking past anybody."
THE THIRD piece of back luck, and
probably the worst as far as Michigan
is concerned., is the knee injury to
heavyweight Rob Rechsteiner. Accor-
ding to Michigan head coach Dale
Bahr, Rechsteiner's knee was
examined by a doctor s soon as the
team returned to Ann Arbor and the
diagnosis was stretched ligaments. The
result of this is 'four to six weeks in a
cast for Rechsteiner, which will finish
his season.
The loss of Rechsteiner leaves Walt
Dunayczan, a 6-3,. 260 pound
sophomore, in the heavyweight spot for
Michigan. "It's (the loss of Rechsteiner)
really going to hurt our team," said
Bahr, who added, "We feel Walt's
going to come around for us."
Overall, the Wolverines hold an
unimpressive 6-8 record, but that is due
to a tough schedule according to Bahr.
The tough schedule however, is not all
bad. "There are no surprises. You've
met everybody nationally, you know
what they're going to do," Bahr said.
Michigan's next match will be Friday
