"Those Mallorys, now they're tough.
o problems with them. THEY ARE
OUGH," said Bo Schembechler, his
eyes bulging, the enthusiasm evident.
Toughness runs deep in the bloodlines
f the entire Mallory family, and no one
s more aware of this personality trait
han Schembechler himself. Schem-
echler, you see, has two Mallorys in
is starting defensive unit.
MIKE MALLORY is a senior inside
linebacker and Doug Mallory is a
sophomore, currently starting as
Michigan's free safety.
Last season Mike Mallory led the
Wolverines with 119 tackles, earned All
Big-Ten honors and was named a cap-
tain of the 1984 squad. Doug Mallory
was a freshman redshirt one year ago
but has come on to start the first three
games of this season at strong safety.
Now the brothers are preparing for
their fourth game of the year and their
second conference battle, a seemingly
harmless contest against the Hoosiers
of Indiana. A Big Ten patsy for the last
several campaigns, the 0-3 Hoosiers are
not expected to pose much of a problem
for the mighty Wolverines. Especially
when one considers that the Indiana
program is one in disarray, sporting its
third coach in just three years.
: BUT THAT coach is Bill Mallory, the
father of Mike and Doug.
"The two kids will be playing against
their dad. They'll be a little nervous,
but they'll be jacked" said Schem-
It's further testimony to the
toughness of the family that the
brothers will be looking to dismantle
their dad's offense. "I take it just like
any other game," said Doug. "Our
whole family and all our relatives will
be there. They will be rooting for In-
Guam Bombers 11, Mugambo
Hunters 10
The Guam Bombers pulled out their
first victory of the year with a big four-
th inning eight run rally Monday night.
ave Rice added a three-run homer to
assist his team to victory. Bill
Kowalski, co-manager of the Bombers
said, "We played a lot better as a team
and made fewer mistakes than in our
first game."
Sigma Alpha Mu 'A' 6, Sigma
Alpha Epsilon 'B' 2
Sigma Alpha Mu scratched out a vic-
tory over Sigma Alpha Epsilon Monday
night. Alpha Mu led from the beginning
with one run in the first and two in the
second on the strength of doubles by
Bobby Mitchell and Jeff Gould.
Mike Warsh paced the Sammies with
a homerun in the final inning to help his
team to victory.

diana because that is where Dad is
FATHER AND head coach Bill
agrees with his son. "I don't think any
one of us has made a big deal out of it.
The media has made a bigger deal out
of it than it should be."
Perhaps the media is creating a little
hype, but Mike, the 214-pound
linebacker, admits to having a notch
more incentive for this game. "It's an
extra-added incentive. I respect him so
much that I want to play well."
Bill Mallory has been a head coach at
a major football school for 14 of the last
15 years, so why aren't his boys playing
for him? "If Bill had been at Indiana
when the boys came out of high school,
they would have gone there. Those boys
love their dad," said Schembechler.
"IT WAS A tough decision," admitted
Mike, the 21-year-old senior. "It had
always been a dream of mine to play for
my father."

But when Mike was making that all
important decision, his father was just
starting out as head coach at Northern
Illinois. When Schembechler and all of
Michigan's football tradition came
calling, Mike felt it was an opportunity
that he could not pass up.
Bill realized that he was losing a
potential star, but was supportive of
Mike's decision. "I knew that Michigan
was a great place for him to go and that
Bo Schembechler would take the time
with them to develop their skills. He's a
good coach," said Bill.
DOUG MALLORY followed in his
older brother's footsteps, enamored
with opportunity to play under Schem-
bechler and experience the glory of
Wolverine tradition. Doug was young
enough, though, that he could have
transferred to Indiana to play Big Ten
ball under his father. "I want to stay
here, I like it here," said Doug who is
undoubtedly envisioning two, maybe

three Rose Bowl trips in the next four
At Indiana, Bill Mallory is planning
for the future and the Rose Bowl is at
least a couple of seasons down the line.
Mallory did, however, receive an ex-
plosive offense installed and left over
by his predecessor, Sam Wyche - now
with the Cincinnati Bengals. Schem-
bechler is concerned about the Hoosier
attack since his defense has been giving
up big yardage and is prone to being
burned by the big play.
Indiana's big weakness is the defen-
se, which allowed Northwestern to roll
up 40 points against it last weekend.
Mallory is a defensive specialist,
coming from the same conservative
Midwestern football roots as Schem-
MALLORY, in fact, got his first
college head coaching job at Miami of
Ohio in 1969, replacing Schembechler
who came to Ann Arbor. "Hell, he made
me look like a piker at Miami. He had
far better teams than I did," said
He coached Miami to four con-
secutive 7-3 seasons before the team
exploded in 1973 to go 11-0. The '73 Red-
skins upset Florida, 16-7, in the
Tangerine Bowl.
Mallory left Miami that year and in
five years at Colorado compiled a 35-21-
1 record, led the Buffaloes to a co-Big
Eight championship in 1976 and the '77
Orange Bowl. He left Colorado after the
'78 season and went 25-19 in his four
years at Northern Illinois before taking
the Indiana job.
This Saturday in Bloomington, Bill
Mallory has the pleasure of watching
his sons get beat up. But Mike and Doug
will be ready in what may shape up to
be a tough football game.

Alpha Tau Omega 4, Environ-
mental Law 3
Alpha Tau Omega evened its record
at 1-1 with sound defense and a clutch
triple off the bat of Pat Doyle. John
Weisgenstein contributed the game
winning RBI with a single in the fifth
Alpha Ta- Omega trailed 3-0 going in-
to the -fth inning when a four-run rally
produced the victory. Pat Doyle,
manager of ATO commented on his
team's performance. "We were
definitely improved from the first
game," he said, "but we still need work

on our hitting. But
looking up."

overall, things are,

Those Big Dudes 7, Whitehouse 3
Those Big Dudes came away with
their second victory in as many tries
Monday against a tough Whitehouse
team. Jerry Soverinsky paced his
team with a three-run triple in the third
inning. "We thought we outplayed our-
selves," he said.
Even with their perfect record, Those
Big Dudes could run intotrouble in
future games because of an injury to

pitcher Josh Yaker. Yaker was hurt on
a shot back through the mound and
another player, Tom Pruther was in-
jured sliding into second base.
Instant scheduling for all levels of the
IM softball playoffs will be held
tomorrow from 11:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. at
the Intramural Sports Building.
