orton: the toast of Yost

By TOM KEANEY

And why did you come to
Mithigan?"
-So goes one of the most irritating
questions every freshman is constantly
asked, beginning at orientation.
STILL, YOU have to wonder why
freshman Jeff Norton did.
Why would one of the top East Coast
hockey prospects come all the way to
MWichigan to play for a team that had
just finished 14-22-1, ninth in the con-
ference and had a vacancy at head
coach?
For Norton, on his visit to the school
last year, it was his prospective team-
mates.
"IT WAS the atmosphere on the
team," said the 6-2, 185 Acton, Mass.
native. "They (the team) went out
fgether. Other schools that I visited,
eeryone went their own way."
Those "other schools" are college
hockey's powerhouses - Boston
College, Wisconsin, Denver University,
Now Hampshire, and they all wanted
him. Michigan assistant coach, Mark
Miller got him.
- "He finished strong the second half of
his senior year, so he was getting a lot
of attention," said Miller. "He came
here for his visit and really enjoyed it.
He saw that we were sincere in
everything that we had told him, that he
could come here and be able to step in
and play."
.PTEP IN and play? Jeff Norton has

stepped in and dominated.
On a defense that has been riddled
with inconsistency and sloppiness, Nor-
ton has proven his worth. He is the
team's leading scorer among defen-
semen (7 goals, 11 assists), and has been
nominated for CCHA Player-of-the-
Week for the past two weeks, despite
the team's 0-4 record during that time.
Don't think Norton wasn't expected to
do well. Drafted in the third round by
the New York Islanders, and finishing
out an outstanding senior year in high
school, players and coaches knew he
was something special, and expected
something special.
"IT WAS a lot of pressure at the
beginning of the year," said Norton in
his unmistakeable New England ac-
cent. "Being drafted and all that, you
try to live up to what other people think.
But now I just hope for the best and play
as hard as I can."
"The early part of the season, you
could see that he wasn't an ordinary
freshman," said head coach Red
Berenson. "The thing that we like about
hime is that he has a great attutude. He
comes to work every day at practice.
He can't get enough of it."
Norton certainly doesn't play like a
freshman. His aggressive style of play
and puck handling ability haven't gone
overlooked by anyone, certainly not his
own teammates.
"HE'S BROUGHT a lot of stability to
our defense," said senior defenseman
Mike Neff. "Jeff has helped our power

play out a lot, he's a good penalty killer
- he's a really good all-around player.
As a freshman he really handles him-
self well."
So how did the Wolverines get this
guy? When he came here Mark Miller
didn't have the name of Red Berenson to
drop. But he did have the academic
reputation of Michigan to his advan-
tage.
"The next 40 years are the most im-
portant ones," said Jack Norton, Jeff's
father. "It would be real nice if he had
that sheepskin at the end of four, with
Michigan behind it.
"THERE'S A lot of schools he could
have gone to where he could have got-
ten his four years of sports in and ended
up a half-baked sophomore."
Education is important to the junior
Norton as well. The thought of
becoming a professional some day is
there, but he seems to be keeping it in
perspective.
"I'd like to go for it (the NHL). If the
chance is there I will," said Norton.
"But you have to look further than that.
An education will bring you a lot fur-
ther, which coach Berenson always
stresses."
Norton is enrolled in LSA, and would
eventually like to go into finance or
marketing.
AS FOR the pros, anything is possible
for Norton. Ask an ex-pro who knows.
"I think his chances are pretty good,"
said Berenson. "College is perfect for
him. He can get a lot of work and he'll

have time to develop and improve ...
by the time he leaves here, he'll be ready
ready."
So who needs the East? Not Jeff Nor-
ton. The more physical style of play is
more suited to his playing style

anyway, his team-leading penalty
minutes total will attest to that.
Norton agrees.

"I like the hockey out here bettah."
The hockey out here's looking bettah,
thanks to Jeff Norton.

Michigan sports salaries .. .
... Bo gets top bill

S ER
A N1 '
,.'

I LOVE SPORTS. I love lists. I love sports lists.
So you can imagine my delight when my room-
mate bought me a copy of "The Book of Sports
Lists" for Christmas. In it I learned of Tampa Bay
linebacker Dewey Selmon's six favorite
philosophers (Plato is number-one), Clif Taylor's
"10 celebrities I have instructed on shortened
skis" and three people broadcaster Joe Garagiola
would like to go on the disabled list with. More im-
portantly, reading the book gave me the desire to
make a sports list of my own.
But what to list? What list could I concoct that
Daily readers would be interested in? That's when
it struck me. What are Michigan students most in-
terested in? That's easy-money. C'mon, admit it.
Sex rates only a poor second at best. So, I asked
myself, why not give them a list that involves both
sports and money?
I hurriedly pulled out my copy of the Daily's
"University faculty/staff salary listings," and
created the Raising Hel Top Twenty Athletic
Department salaries for 1985.
1) Bo Schembechler, head football coach,
$96,030. Was there ever any doubt? Probably
worth every penny, though with a mediocre 6-6
record this past season Bo's not the bargain he on-
ce was. Those six victories cost $16,005 apiece in
1984.
2) Don Canham, Director of Athletics, $82,000.
How many bosses make less than one of their em-
ployees? Canham doesn't care, though, he gets

perks-like free tickets to wrestling matches, a
pair of obstructed-view seats in the Blue section
for basketball games and all the icky football
stadium hot dogs he can stomach.
3) Bill Frieder, head basketball coach, $52,500.
Not a professor in anything, nor is he related to
one. Could be due for a raise at the end of this
season if his team keeps it up.
4) Gary Moeller, assistant football coach,
$50,000. Might seem like a lot for an assistant but
Moeller's one of the very best. Besides, the
athletic department of the school he formerly
coached for probably gave away that much money
last year.
5) Jerry Hanlon, assistant football coach,
$46,000.
6) Red Berenson, hockey coach, $45,000. One of
the best paid college hockey coaches in the biz, we
are told.
7) Will Perry, Assistant Director of Athletics,
$43,400. Former athletic department PR-man
makes good.
8) Tirrel Burton, assistant football coach,
$41,500. A four-way tie for eighth among grid
assistants on the chart. Trivia buffs take note:
Tirrel is the highest paid Burton at the 'U'.
8) Lloyd Carr, assistant football coach, $41,500.
8) Elliott Uzelac, assistant football coach,
$41,500.
8) Milan Vooletich, assistant football coach,
$41,500. Hey, looks like there's good money in this
assisting business.

12) Don Lund, Associate Director of Athletics,
$41,200. What's the difference between assistant
and associate athletic director? About 2,000 bucks,
it seems.
13) Phyllis Ocker, Women's Athletic Director,
$40,221. Reportedly considering a career move to
assistant football coaching.
14) Fritz Seyferth, football recruiting coor-
dinator, $39,000. Easily the biggest surprise on the
list.
15) Jack Harvey, men's track coach, $33,785.
16) Al Renfrew, ticket manager, $32,045. Don't
blame Rennie if your seats are in the end zone or
in the rafters of Crisler. The former hockey coach
does a great job of managing the ducats.
17) Steve Fisher, assistant basketball coach,
$32,000. Won't be an assistant too much longer.
18)Mike Boyd, assistant basketball coach,
$31,500.
18)Bud Middaugh, baseball coach, $31,500. That
works out to something like $750 per win in an
average Middaugh year. Bud is underpaid at any
price.
18) Jon Urbanchek, men's swimming coach,
$31,500. A logjam at thirty-one-five closes out the
official top twenty.
I . think that's a comprehensive enough list. I
apologize if I've left someone out. Just a reminder.
Not a single penny of your tuition dollar goes
toward any of these salaries. The money you shell
out for your football tickets does the job quite
nicely, thank you.

Butch Wades crunch opponents

The Butch Wades came out smoking
against the Alpha Delts and cruised to
an easy 35 point victory as they tuned
up to defend their 5'9" division cham-
pionship. Using a 2-3 zone defense and
I'concentrating on defense like Butch,"
according to Manager Cary Cicurel, the
Dutch Wades almost ran the Alpha
pelts out of the gym. Dan Cooperider
and 5'10" Mike Green each canned 20
points in the win while Cicurel banged
home 18 points and ripped down 12
"rebounds, a' la Butch himself. Taking
ho mercy on their opponents, earlier
this year the Butch Wades racked up a
104-19 win. While other teams attribute
-heir success to things like rebounding
or maybe even Wheaties, Cicurel
eredits his team's success ot their game
day ritual. "We plan our strategy at a
team breakfast which alway includes
Captain Crunch with Crunchberries."
Chi Psi 39, Psi Upsilon 38
Balanced scoring paved the way for
the Chi Psi's victory as they barely
Ihung on to down the Psi Upsilons.
,Because of the deft outside shooting
touch of the Psi Ups, the Chi Psis
headed into the lockerroom down by

two at halftime, 22-20. But a Chi Psi
switch on defense from man-to-man to
zone slowed the Psi Upsilon attack. The
Chi Psis assumed a one point advan-
tage with about a minute left but turned
the ball over to Psi Upsilon for the last

Alpha Epsilon Pi 44

51,

Bringing back memories of their
championship teams in 1980 and 1981,
the Alpha Phi Alphas came back from a
22-20 deficit at halftime and broke open
a close game with tenacious defense
down the stretch. The Alpha's 2-3 zone
defense set up easy steals and forced
Alpha Epsilon Pi into numerous tur-
novers. Geoffrey Craig paced the Alpha
attack with 16 points and three blocked
shots and Wayne McLeod shredded the
nets for 15. Manager Bill Doss believes
his squad can make the Fraternity 'A'
finals this year, and with the Alpha Phis
sporting a 3-0 record and an average
victory margin of 25 points, Doss may
indeed be right.
