Michigan sports clubs pull together
By EMILY BRIDGHAM
The men's and women's rowing club
has been busy since school began,
preparing for one of the biggest regat-
tas in the world, The Head of the
Charles, in Boston. That regatta is
scheduled for October 21 and will in-
clude a women's varsity eight and a
men's varsity four boat, from the
After placing high in last year's
races, the club will compete in the
Championship Event this year, as op-
posed to the Club Event. The club may
enter more boats in the races, but they
must get lottery bids to do so.
BOTH THE MEN AND women will be
in action this Sunday at The Head of the
Thames regatta in London, Ontario.
The women have been up and on the
water at 6:30 every morning under the
watchful eye of coach Amy Luchsinger.
Luchsinger has helped the club attain
the high calibre of rowing prevalent
The men, coached by Craig Drake
and David Moecher, practice in the
evenings until sunset, or until the man
in front of them is no longer visible.
The club also sports a large novice
squad. Approximately 140 members
practice every afternoon. The novices,
coached by Mike Caviston and Amy
Luchsinger, learn basic rowing skills on
"the barge" (a handmade beginners
boat) before moving on to the rowing
shells. The beginners will be able to en-
joy the exhilaration of their first race

Ann Arbor will hold its

later in the fall, when they travel to
Purdue for a regatta.
THEIR DEDICATION TO the sport
along with the close friendships on the
club, are what keep the members
rowing. Team captains Cammy Kelly
and Jim Campbell are perfect exam--
pies. Both have submerged their lives
into the club and into attaining new
members. Anyone interested should
either call or stop by the Michigan
Union club office.
The rowing club, which supports it-
self through fundraisers, is sponsoring
a Halloween Fun Run. The run is
scheduled for Saturday, beginning at 9
a.m. in the Arboretum. Participants
can run either a two or four-mile race
and the first 500 entrants will receive

"Tastes great, less filling" are the
words that will be chanted by students
participating in the Michigan-Michigan
State tug-o-war on Saturday, October 6
at 9 a.m. Michigan's warriors will
shout "tastes great" as they pull, only
to be answered by the Spartan's cry of

Tom Redick, a Michigan law student
and Miller representative expects a
good turnout of Michigan athletes for
the tug-off. Redick has no doubts that
Michigan will be victorious over the
Spartans saying, "We've got the home
court and we always beat State."
REDICK, AN ALUMNUS of Phi
Delta Theta fraternity, is coordinating
the event. Although this is the first year
that the tug-o-war will be held, Redick
hopes that it will become an annual
event, moving from East Lansing to
Ann Arbor with the football rivalry. The
competition is not limited to students.
"I think it would be neat to have some
faculty members compete, also," said
The Ann Arbor-East Lansing Lite tug-
o-war is not the first off-beat event to
take place between the two rivals. A
popular event a few years ago was
bombing Michigan State's statue, Spar-
tie, with maize and blue water ballons.
In recent years though, the Spartans
have become very protective of Spartie
and have placed security around it. So
the Michigan-Michigan State tug-o-war
is a safe way to continue a tradition.
Davidson and Meredith will not only
be in town for the big competition, but
Friday night they will be "bar-
hopping" around local town spots and
socializing with the students. Davidson
was featured in a recent Lite Beer
commercial arm wrestling. When you
see him Friday night at the bars, you
might want to challenge the former
Raider to a test of strength. Just don't
ask him what time it is.

Just for the Hel of it...
-When Bo Schembechler is not under the stress of post-game interviews,
he can be quite a funny guy. Honest. He often turns his weekly luncheons
with the media into a spree of humorous anecdotes and good-natured rib-
bing. Here's one example of some of the things that go on. This past Mon-
day, Bo was telling a story about how one of his former coaches, Sid Gillman,
wouldn't let his players work out in the weight room for fear they would
become "muscle-bound sissies." One rather diminutive sports writer piped
in, "I believe in that." Schembechler paused, let the chuckles die down,
glanced down at him and said, "Obviously." As so often happens, the press
room erupted in laughter.
-Schembechler took time out from football talk to make his predictions for
the playoffs and World Series. No surprise: 'it's the Tigers all the way.
"We're gonna win the World Series, aren't we 'men?" asked Bo, who
followed the Cleveland Indians in his younger days. "Those other teams
can't come close. It's almost like it's unfair." Bless you, Bo.
-Did you notice how everybody fell in love with running back Jamie
Morris? It's no wonder. The 18-year-old speedster showed as much dex-
terity with his mind as with his feet. Here's an example. REPORTER:
"Gee Jamie, you don't act like a freshman." MORRIS: Well sir, I'm not
sure I know how a freshman is supposed to act."
-There will be some familiar names in the Indiana lineup for this Satur-
day's game. The Hoosiers' starting tight end is Dave Lilja, brother of for-
mer Wolverine center George Lilja. At guard is Jeff Lemirande, brother of
Mike Lemirande, a Wolverine from 1979-82. I did say familiar names, didn't
-You will be glad to know that the Hoosiers have officially designated this,
Saturday as "Pork Day." Bloomington, Ind. on Pork Day ... one road trip
you don't want to miss.
'You more serious fans will be glad to know that Brian Mercer may be
playing again soon. The talented tailback from Cincinnati carried the ball 30
times for 151 yards last season before going down with a knee injury. He
didn't play spring ball, but is working with the scout team now.
'It's a good thing Michigan has three breathers coming up on the schedule
(Indiana, Michigan State and Northwestern) because quarterback Jim Har-
baugh needs it. So far Harbaugh has looked tentative when he runs and he's
taken some unnecessary sacks. His greatest weakness, however, is his ten-
dency to watch his primary receiver through the whole route. Bo insists
Harbaugh has gotten better every week but I haven't seen it. Of course, he
did have to start off against three good defenses. Maybe he just needs a 250-
yard passing day to break the ice. Could come this Saturday.
'Looks like some of us went overboard picking Michigan to win the Big
Ten. The defense has a long way to go if the Wolverines are to match Ohio
State. Defensive captain Mike Mallory put the defense's problem in a nut-
shell. "We've got to learn to tackle better," he said.
'So much for Bo's professed conversion to the forward pass. In its two vic-
tories, Michigan ran the ball nearly 74 percent of the time. Wonder whatever
happened to Triando Markray?
-Bo admitted that if he could do it over again he would have had Bob
Bergeron attempt that 52-yarder against Wisconsin. Schembechler gave
Todd Schlopy a shot at Bergeron's request. "Hindsight-I'd probably
overrule him (Bergeron) now," said the General. I should hope so. Nothing
against Schlopy, who has a "gun," as he puts it, but when a man does the job
Bergeron has done this season, you let him kick until his leg falls off.
-Nobody knew who Bo was talking about when he kept referring to "Jose"
last week. Turns out Jose is Bergeron's nickname. Who gave it to him? "I
gave it to him," said Schembechler. "When you're coaching football you've
got to get their attention. Make up a name, give him some other name. If a
guy's name is Higgins, call him 'Pinky.' So the next time you want Higgins,
you don't have to call 'Higgins!' Just yell 'Pinky!' (He) will hear it just like
that. I'm serious. So it seemed like Jose was a good name for Bergeron. I
yell 'Jose!' and they all know who it is. Jose Bergeron. I know it's silly but it

Rumor has it that Michigan coach Bo
Schembechler is searching for walk-ons
to replace injured defensive back Tony
Gant, who hurt his leg last Saturday
and is out for the season.
Schembechler could not be reached

Marion Body and John Lott were seen

to make gridiron comebacks or simply

nothing could keep him from a chance
