Yawner in store; new QB's battle'Cats

By DOUGLAS B. LEVY
If it's offense you crave, then you
may want to think twice before atten-
ding today's Michigan-Northwestern
football game (1:00 p.m.).
The Wolverines, 3-2, 2-1 in the Big Ten
are breaking in two new quarterbacks
- sophomores Russell Rein and Chris
Zurbrugg. Without the injured Jim
Harbaugh, Michigan is not a threat to
score 30 points against a tough Wildcat
defense.
NORTHWESTERN, meanwhile, 1-5,
1-3 in the conference, has the weakest
offense in the Big Ten. And last week
against Iowa, junior signal-caller San-
dy.-Schwab stretched ligaments in his
throwing arm. Schwab's starting status
is questionable, which means that 18-
year-old freshman, Mike Greenfield
could see considerable time.
Add the fact that both squads sport
solid defensive units and the Michigan
Stadium faithful is in danger of wit-
nessing an extremely low scoring con-
test.
For Bo Schembechler, today's con-
frontation with the lowly Wildcats
represents one thing and one thing only
- a warm up. Schembechler is looking
to give his young quarterbacks enough
time to get comfortable for the battles
ahead. Michigan's next three games
are against Iowa, Illinois and Purdue.
"I THINK probably we'll use both of
them," said Schembechler. "We'll give
both of them an opportunity to play.
They're both very close and they're
very similar types of quarterbacks."
Zurbrugg is listed to start, but
Schembechler admitted Thursday that-
he had still not-committed himself.

Against Michigan State last Saturday,
Zurbrugg completed one of his four
pass attempts with two interceptions.
Rein went two for seven with one inter-
ception.
"They both throw pretty well and
handle the team pretty well," said
Schembechler. "But none of these guys
have been brought along like Jimmy
Harbaugh."
- SCHEMBECHLER will thus look to
his running game, which has had a
tough time getting on track in 1984.
Senior Rick Rogers is slated to make
his first start of the season as is junior
fullback, Eddie Garrett.
Michigan's top tailback, Gerald
White, will miss his second game in suc-
cession due to arm and shoulder
lacerations suffered in a dormitory ac-
cident two weeks ago. Freshman
Jamie Morris will back up Rogers, and
Bob Perryman will see action at
fullback.
Another first-time 1984 starter for
Michigan is flanker Triando Markray.
Gilvanni Johnson is out with a knee in-
jury.
NORTHWESTERN'S only hope lies
with its defense, which includes six ex-
perienced seniors. Last week against
Iowa, the Wildcats, made ten tackles
behind the Hawkeye line of scrimmage,
including six quarterback sacks.
"If we are effective moving the ball
against Northwestern, that will be in-
dication to me that we'll be okay," said
Schembechler.
But Wildcat defensive coordinator,
Francis Peay was a bit more conser-
vative when speaking abopt his unit.
"OUR DEFENSE has probably

.matured to a certain extent. It's been
an improvement for us. Our third down
consistency has gotten better, but we're
still giving up 350-plus yards .per
game," said Peay.
Peay also feels that the Wolverine of-
fense will be formidable, even without
Harbaugh at the helm. "You know
Michigan has a well-oiled replacement
waiting in the wings. Bo Schembechler
coached teams execute extremely well,
almost flawless. If you concentrate on
their receivers, their tailback will beat
you and vice versa," said Peay.
Northwestern's best players defen-
sively are left tackle Keith Cruise, out-
side linebacker Alex Moyer, inside

pound senior, is an All-American can-
didate.
ODDLY ENOUGH, what was con-
sidered to be a potentially potent offen-
se for the Wildcats has fizzled. "Their
defense is as good as any in the
league," commented Schembechler.
"But their offense hasn't generated any
offense."
"As a unit they had been getting bett-
er each week," said Wildcat offensive
coordinator, Scott Schumann. "Except
last week we had a little setback." Last
week Northwestern fell to Iowa, 31-3.
Schwab is the main man on offense,
but following the graduation of his top
tailback and top two receivers from a
, year ago, he has been inconsistent.
Schwab. has completed only 47.3 per-
cent of his passes and two touchdowns.
But he has also tossed nine intercep-
tions.
Complementing the Wildcat passing
attack is an anemic ground game. Nor-
thwestern's running backs are
averaging a pitiful 2.2 yards per carry.
Michigan itself is suffering from its
poorest season rushing in several cam-
paigns, but is still averaging 3.4 yards
per carry. In 1983, Michigan backs
picked up an average of 4.8 yards a pop.
BLUE BANTER: Wolverine defen-
sive tackle Kevin Brooks has a knee in-
jury but is expected to play. .. North-
western has won only 12 games since
1972, while dropping ill contests .. .
Dennis Green is in his fourth year as
Northwestern head coach and has com-
piled a 6-33 record ... Bo Schembechler
coached Michigan teams have never
lost to the Wildcats. Schembechler is 14-0 -
against the 'Cats.

Schwab
... might not play

linebacker Darin Morgan and strong
safety Charles Plant: Only a
sophomore, Plant leads the team in
tackles with 53. Cruise and Moyer have
been putting a lot of pressure on op-
posing quarterbacks.- Cruise, a 264-

Sophomore quarterback Chris Zurbrugg prepares to fire a pass in last
week's game against Michigan State. Zurbrugg is listed as today's starter
at QB, but Russell Rein will also see action.

Blue ices
By TOM KEANEY
Special to the Daily
OXFORD, OHIO - Red Berenson's college
coaching career got off to a good start last night as
the Michigan hockey team grinded out a 6-4 road vic-
tory over Miami of Ohio.
Berenson was pleased with the win but kept the
performance in perspective.
"BOTH TEAMS pdyed hard, it was a physical
game, and I thought it was a very close hockey
game," Berenson said. "We had to grind out the
goals. There weren't any pretty goals."
Michigan showed effective passing early in the
game and created a number of scoring opportunities
but could not convert them into goals.
The Wolverines played short-handed for much of
the first period, but the defense had little trouble
denying the erratic Miami power play any goals.
WHEN ASKED ABOUT his power play, Miami
head coach Steve Cady termed it "nonexistent."
Because we didn't have a chance to spend time on it
in practice, I'm not overly surprised," said Cady.
"But I was expecting it to be a bit better." The
Michigan defense in general played well and showed
good, hard checking.
OPPORTUNITIES were turned into goals in the
second period, due in part to the eight penalties han-
ded out in the period.
Miami drew first blood when left wing John Ciotti
blistered a wrist shot off a face-off in the Michigan

zone past Wolverine goalie, Mark Chiamp.
The Wolverines came right back a minute later as
freshman Brad McCaughey scored Michigan's first
goal of the season.'
WORKING ON A power play, Tom Stiles fed Mc-
Caughey with a beautiful pass, leaving him in the
clear and the Ann Arbor native pushed the puck over
Miami goaltender Tom Hall's right shoulder.
Michigan didn't stop there, coming back with its
second goal just eleven seconds later. This time it
was Paul Spring getting the goal, chipping in a Paul
Kobylarz shot from the rightslot.
At 7:50 of that period Miami center Todd Channell
confiscated an errant Michigan pass, brought it past
the blue line and delivered a slap shot to tie the score
at 2-2.-
RAY DRIES regained the lead for Michigan put-
ting a Bill Brauer rebound into an open net at 8:38.

keeping, and that was the case tonight," said Beren-
son.

ds into the final period, and from there Michigan ran
the score up to 6-3 on a goal by Bruce Macnab.
Miami closed the game's scoring with 3:02 left to
play on a goal by Mike Martinec, but the contest was
beyond the Redskins' reach.

didn't make mistakes either. Said Berenson: "My

WHAT TO WATCH: Illinois brings its
aerial attack into Ohio State this
weekend for a showdown between the
second and third place teams in the Big
Ten.
Illinois has the league's leading
receiver in junior David Williams 'and
highly regarded junior QB Jack
Trudeau. Expect the Buckeye defen-

Ten.
Ohio State has one of the best running
backs in the game in Heisman Can-
didate Keith Byars who ran for 191 yar-
ds last week in a 28-23 loss to Purdue.
Expect the Buckeyes to keep it on the

Warhurst extended the longest current
(180) Michigan winning streak over
(166) Michigan State, ten years, with an easy
dual-meet victory over the Spartans
d on here yesterday.
UO The win was typical of the Wolverine
track program, with the emphasis
being on teamwork, rather than in-
dividual accomplishment. Bill Brady
and Dave Meyer crossed the finish line
together for the first place tie. Their
winning time of 26:38 had Warhurst
happy. "That's pretty darn quick for
an all this course.. . I was really pleased."
eyes in Meyer was particularly happy to not-
ch his first Cross Country win for the
in the Maize and Blue. It was especially sweet
elds in for him to do it against State, the school
ld end he transferred from after his freshman
erence year. Yet he wasn't greedy to grab all
the glory. "It's the team first and the

Michigan's Bob Vandenburg sur-
prised some with his third place finish.
He held off Mike Kavulich of State with
a late burst of speed. Chris Brewster
nearly gave Michigan the top four
places but fell short at the finish.
Warhurst was not disappointed with
Brewster though. "Brewster just fin-
ished his first week of hard workouts so
he was a little flat. But we're pleased,"

said Warhurst.
Next week Warhurst takes his team
to the Central Collegiate Champion-
ships at Marquette University. He looks
.forward to that meet because his team
continues to heal from several nagging
injuries. "Everybody's starting to get
healthy. We're a lot better now than
when we finished in sixth place at Notre
Dame (last Saturday)," he commen-
ted.
