.e'WOLVERINES WON'T ROLL OVER, VOWS SCHEMBECHLER
By KATIE BLACKWELL
Fear not all you Wolverine faithful.
Though you have been watching your
team slide to a dismal 4-3 mark in 1984,
the boys in Maize 'n Blue aren't quite
dead yet. At least that's what the head
honcho says, and he should know,
At yesterday's weekly press lun-
cheon, Bo Schembechler was asked if
he will do anything differently this
Saturday considering his team's dread-
ful 26-0 clubbing in Iowa City.
"YEAH," growled the veteran coach,
Michigan's lopsided loss to the Iowa
Hawkeyes was the first shut-out the
team suffered in a half dozen years.
The loss was not particularly easy to
swallow, especially since it almost
assuredly knocks the Wolverines out of
Rose Bowl contention.
"I can't stand these losses," Schem-
bechler said. "I'm no different from
anybody else. I can't stand it, but I'll
THE IOWA GAME was, in reality,
the first real test of the Michigan offen-
se since Jim Harbaugh went down with
a broken arm in the Michigan State
game. Quarterbacks Russell Rein and
Chris Zurbrugg managed to complete a
mere 11 of 25 passes and threw three
more into Hawkeye hands. The ground
game wasn't exactly powerful either,
gaining just 104 yards in the game.
Schembechler has no complaints in
the quarterback department, however.
"I don't think we ought to have a field
day on these two kids," he emphasized.
"It isn't their fault that they don't have
the background. They're just trying to
1an- the rndp
life in his team
IF YOU STOP to consider what Rein
and Zurbrugg are up against, you'd
agree with Schembechler. Each had
only taken 25 percent of the snaps in
practice up until Harbaugh's injury. In
the 1983 season, neither man was in the
three-deep depth charts which read
Steve Smith, Dave Hall and Harbaugh.
"They (Rein and Zurbrugg) have not
been through the same training,"
Schembechler said. "It takes a
significant amount of time to train
them. Too many things go wrong, but I
don't blame them, I blame myself."
The Harbaugh-less offense begins its
third full week of practice and hopefully
things will begin to gel, because its a
rough road ahead for the Wolverines.
Illinois, Purdue, Minnesota and Ohio
State still lie in wait for the wounded
"I AIN'T dead yet," claimed the
coach. "When I beat one of these guys,
you'll say, 'Wow, I didn't think he could
And what about a bowl game, you
ask? Well, it won't be a rosy one if there
is one at all. Schembechler claims he
hasn't even thought about a bowl game,
yet, and he still claims the Big Ten
champions will only have one loss. His
next goal is to beat the guys that are
coming to town next week - a very
formidable Illinois team.
And to listen to Schembechler talk
about the character of his team, it
sounds like an easy task.
"We're not walking around with our
heads down," he said. "We're
Michigan, we've got pride. This team
will not lay down and die, I'll guarantee
that. I'll give you my word on that."

Weekend woes:* Linksters get club
W edMOS .b~fUIg~gj - .5- ~3d~
By GREG CHRISTOPHER
The University Golf Course took on a
green shade in addition to its fairways
and putting surfaces as Michigan State
and Bowling Green finished one-two in
the Lady Wolverine Invitational held
Saturday and Sunday.
The hosts, led by Valerie Madill and
Sandy Barron who each shot 176 for the
two rounds, came in fourth place at 702,
far off the 646 recorded by the Spartans.
Purdue finished third, and Ferris State
brought up the rear. Two teams, the
Michigan maize team, made up of
golfers not on the traveling squad, and
Albion, a club team, played for in-
dividual scores and the team scores
.were not tabulated.
"I THOUGHT the girls played better
down in Kentucky," Michigan coach
Sue LeClair said. "Our course is harder
than other schools'. It played long, and
the teams had problems with the
greens." Those problems showed in the
relatively high score of Michigan
State's Lisa Marino, who took medalist
honors at 158.
LeClair takes the linksters to Bowling
Green next week for the season finale
but next year, the squad will basically
remain the same. "Sandy (Barron) is
the only senior." LeClair said, "I'll
have Missy (Bauer), Val (Madill), and
others around for a few more years."
Iowa, OSU slam stickers
Offense continued to be a problem for
the Michigan field hockey teams, which
dropped Big Ten contests to Iowa, 9-2,
and Ohio State, 3-0, over the weekend at
The Wolverine offense was held at
bay throughout most of both games,
only breaking through twice against
Iowa. Jamie Fry provided the first
Michigan tally at 27:38 of the first half
with an assist going to Tracy Gaskins.
Lisa Schofield notched the other
Wolverine goal at 27:13 of the second
THE MEAGER goal output has been
typical of the Wolverines this year, who
have managed to score only 11 times in
"We're just not generating an at-
tack," said head coach Karen Collins.
"It's frustrating because our defense is
playing very well. We're the type of
team that can come up and beat any-.
They served, they rallied and they
volleyed, but no one on the women's
tennis team could advance any further

Rolex Midwestern Tournament this
The tournament, the Wolverines' first
of the year, gave Coach Elizabeth Ritt
her first look at Big Ten and other mid-
western schools as Michigan's head
coach. Ritt, is no newcomer to Big Ten.
Last year she was assistant coach at
PAULA REICHERT, Michigan's
number one singles' player, was seeded
seventh in the singles tournament, but
lost 6-4, 6-4 in the first round to North-
western's number one player. Reichert,
a junior who received All-Big Ten
Honors last year, also lost in the first
round of the doubles tournament with
teammate Leslie Mackey.
Ritt said her young team played well
in their first appearance of the season.
"A lot of the other teams there had
already played in competition; we
hadn't. We weren't bad at all, we just
know what we have to do now," she
The Wolverines, who finished third in
the Big Ten last season, look to remain
a key team in the conference as they
travel to Michigan State this weekend.
"I think we're right up there," Ritt
Batsmen break training
Baseball fever may be over in
Detroit, but it has only just begun for
the Michigan ball club. The batsmen
looked strong in their annual blue and
gold games last weekend and should be
a major contender once again for the
Big Ten crown.
"The team has depth, but the pitching
is a lot of question marks," Middaugh
said. He said that the club may be good,
but since Ohio tate is returning nine
pitchers and I iana is also strong it
may be a tough ason.
"There is no question it will be a
competitive race," Middaugh said.

On a beautiful fall day in Boston,
Michigan's crew teams finished ap-
proximately at the waist of the
prestigious "Head of the Charles"
The men's four-man team finished
21st in a field of 40 boats, while the
eight-man team finished 30th.

One last friendly warning from Zenith Data Systems
Here's a little test. See if you can pick
this week's Griddes winner from these
A. Alan "Was I a fluke?" Beland
B. Al "Did I win again?" Rossi

If you chose answer B, then you're a
pretty rational person. Unfortunately,
you're also wrong. Young Mr. Rossi
finished a very close second to this
week's champ Pete "Sweet meat" An-
derson. The nickname, incidently, is
Pete's own creation. He wouldn't tell us
exactly what it means, but he did say
that he was going to put his big thick
sausage on his free pizza from Pizza
That's right. Peter wins a free, one-
