SPOR TS OF THE DAIL Y

Lemieux shines,

Wales wins, 6-4

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Pit-
tsburgh,'s Mario Lemieux, the National
Hockey League's top draft last summer
and leading rookie scorer, collected two
goals and an assist last night to lead the
Prince of Wales Conference to a 6-4 vic-
tory over the Clarence Campbell con-
ference in the 37th All-Star Game.
Lemieux, the most touted rookie to
enter the league in more than a decade,
was named the game's most valuable
player.
HE HAD given the Wales a 4-2 lead at
17:47 of the second period after taking a
pretty pass from fellow rookie Kirk
Muller of the New Jersey Devils and
slipping a wrist shot past goalie Grant
Fuhr.
Just four minutes before Lemieux's
first goal, Anders Hedberg of the New
York Rangers had broken a 2-2 tie.
Hedberg, at 33 the oldest player in the
game and in the midst of his final NHL
season, took a pass from Lemieux and
sent home a backhander from the slot.
It was Hedberg's first NHL All-Star
game.
THE WALES Conference got off to a
quick start, scoring twice in the first
5:31.
Hartford's Ron Francis put in a 10-
foot backhander from the slot just 1:40
into the contest. Philadelphia's Tim
Kerr, who set up Francis' goal, made it
2-0 with a pretty backhander to the far
corner after some hard work behind the
net by Quebec's Michel Goulet pried the
puck free.
But the Campbells, who have won
just two of 10 games under the present
format, rallied on goals by Marcel
Dionne and Miro Frycer.
Dionne, the Los Angeles Kings' cen-
ter appearing in his eighth All-Star
game, had his 35-foot wrist shot deflect

off the glove of Wales defenseman Mike
Ramsey and into the net just 62 seconds
after Kerr's goal.
Frycer, a Czechoslovakian native
who plays for Toronto, zipped a 25-foot
wrist shot past goalie Tom Barrasso af-
ter taking the puck off Lemieux's stick
at 16:55.
St. John's 68, Columbia 49
NEW YORK (AP) - Chris Mullin and
Walter Berry scored 14 points each as
top-ranked St., John's broke loose in the
second half and extended its winning
streak to 15 games with a 68-49 college
basketball victory over Columbia last
night.
The Redmen, with the longest win-
ning streak in Division I, raised their
record to 20-1,nwhile the Lions fell to 7-11
before a capacity crowd of 3,400 at the
Lion's Levien Gymnasium.
ST. JOHN'S SHOT out to a 26-8 lead
with Mullin and Berry totaling 14 points
between them, but the Lions, using a
deliberate offense and having no player
taller than 6-foot-4%, outscored the
Redmen 14-4 over the last 7:18 and only
trailed by 30-22 at intermission.
A jumper by Columbia's Mark Settles
at the start of the second half made it
30-24, but that was the closest the Lions
would ever get.
St. John's led 40-31 with less than 13
minutes to play, but. then Berry and
Mullin combined for four points apiece
in an 8-2 spurt for a 48-33 advantage,
virtually sewing up the game.
The Redmen's biggest lead was 23
points with 36 seconds remaining.
Mike Moses added 10 points and cen-
ter Bill Wennington nine for the Red-
men, while Mark Murphy and Settles
each scored 12 for the Lions, who suf-
fered their third straight loss.

Quick on the Draw
By Mikea 'Iraw t
Four years of 'M' sports...
.the best and the worst
SEEING MICHIGAN ranked number three in the AP basketball poll
rekindles memories of that day in July of 1981. Getting ready to head off
to freshman orientation, I purchased a copy of Street and Smith's College
Football Preview and found not only a Wolverine gridder (Anthony Carter)
on the cover, but Bo Schembechler's team was ranked number one.
"Gosh, I couldn't have made a more timely college choice," I thought to
myself. But alas, that wasn't the case that football season. Still, though, you
can't pick a better sports school to attend than the mighty U of M. The four
years I've spent here haven't been profoundly successful, but it sure has
been entertaining.
Let's relive some of those happy memories together.
NOVEMBER 1981: Michigan just needs a home victory over Ohio State to
sew up a Rose Bowl berth, but with just over a minute left in the game, Art
Schlichter fakes out the entire Wolverine defense and scores the winning
touchdown. It was a disappointing afternoon, but still it was fun to be able to
throw snowballs at people from OSU for a few hours.
NOVEMBER 1981: The low point in Michigan basketball history. The
team loses to EMU.
JANUARY 1982: THE TEXAS A&M SCARE: It looked like Bo was really
going to leave, but the fears were put to rest when it was announced over the
speaker at Yost Ice Arena that Bo was staying. By that time, though, it was
too late to get my housing deposit back from Texas A&M.
NOVEMBER 1982: BEST CALL: Fourth and goal. Two-yard line. Ten
seconds left. Trailing by six. What should Illinois coach Mike White do? How
about a handoff up the middle for a loss of two? Genius White said on his TV
show the next day that he'd call the same play again.
JANUARY 1,1983: ROSE BOWL: This turned out to be the only trip to
Pasadena and it wasn't much fun. The UCLA fans desire to rub in the result
ranks this game right up there with the hockey team's 12-1 loss at MSU as the
toughest game to sit through.
FEBRUARY 1983: The triple-overtime loss to Purdue has to be the best
basketball game. Kurt Clawson and Eric Turner each hit three pointers at
the buzzer to prolong the contest. The Boilermakers pulled it out, but the
game proved that the three-point circle was a great rule.
NOVEMBER 1983: The Illini beat
Michigan 16-6 to ensure a Rose Bowl trip.
This becomes the best thing to happen to
that miserable part of the country since
the introduction of corn cob handles.
LATE NOVEMBER 1983: THE BEST
SPORTS DAY EVER: The football team
downs the Buckeyes for the only time in
four years. Then that night the hockey
team stuns MSU in East Lansing, 5-3. Its
first win over the Spartans in two years.
JANUARY 2,1984: ROSE BOWL: UCLA
(6-4-1) 45, Illinois 9. And they want to give
Mike White a lifetime contract?
FEBRUARY, 1984: MOST HEADS UPC
PLAY: Against the Illini, Tim McCor-
mick intentionally fouls Bruce Douglas Whie
with four seconds left and the game tied.
Luckily, Turner races the length of the
court and re-ties it at the buzzer, but Illinois wins in four OT's.
MARCH 1984: With two games left in the season, the only way the hockey
team won't make the playoffs is if it loses twice at home while Lake Superior
wins twice. And wouldn't you know it, that's exactly what happens.
MID-MARCH 1984: Second choke in a week. All the basketball team needs
to do to make the NCAA tournament is beat Northwestern. But John "A dork
even by Northwestern standards" Peterson wins it for the Wildcats in over-
time.
MAY 1984: SECOND BEST SPORTS DAY EVER: John Giordano and
Gloria Soluk get canned at the same Board of Control meeting.
JUNE, 1984: BEST STRATEGY: In a bunting situation against Indiana
State in the NCAA Regionals, baseball coach Bud Middaugh puts center-
fielder Mike Watters 60 feet from the plate down the third-base line. Very
confused, the Indiana State batter bounces to the pitcher.
JULY 1984: BIG TEN FOOTBALL LUNCHEON: All the Big Ten coaches
assemble under one roof. After Schembechler, Hayden Fry and Lou Holtz
there is about as much personality in that group as there is in a small bowl of
Hamburger Helper. At the luncheon, Mike White starts the I-L-L....I-N-I
cheer with the Illinois luncheon crowd, then points out to everyone that
Schembechler left when he got up to talk. What a schlong (White, that is).
FALL 1984: MICHIGAN FOOTBALL: I never thought I'd miss Steve
Smith so much.
OCTOBER 1984: WORLD SERIES: Since the Cubs weren't there to make
it exciting, I rooted for the next best thing. Unfortunately, though, Steve
Garvey didn't get struck in the face by a sharply batted ball.
DECEMBER 21, 1984: HOLIDAY BOWL: This was an exciting but
depressing game. The worst part was when BYU receiver Glen "I listen for
footsteps" Kozlowski did his cowboy dance after scoring the tying touch-
down. I know it would have been a penalty, but it wouldn't have bothered me
if at that point, Mike Mallory came off the bench and blasted the guy about 23
rows into the Murphy Stadiumcapacitace.
FEBRUARY 10, 1985: The biggest disappointment of all. After finally put-

ting together a good team, the Daily Libels come out cold and are upset in
the second round of the IM playoffs. Now I know how Ray Meyer must have
felt.
Well that brings us back to the basketball team and I think we may be set-
ting ourselves up for major disaster in the early rounds of the tournament
against Oral Roberts.
But regardless of what the hoopsters do this year, they are very likely to be
rated number one before next season and that's sure to mean trouble. It's all
part of an endless cycle for a school that hasn't won a major national cham-
pionship since '64.

wait

By MARK BOROWSKY
W ILLIAM CLAY Ford and Russ
Thomas had me worried for a few
days. When Monte Clark departed as
head coach of the Lions, I agonized over
the possibility of them hiring a Chuck
Knox, a Bill Walsh, a Chuck Noll. In
other words, someone capable.
But my fears have quickly dissipated.
Instead, they hired Darryl Rogers. Now
I can breathe easily and sleep at night.
If you are wondering why I like
Darryl Rogers coaching the Lions, I am
formerly from Chicago, and have about
as much liking for the Detroit Lions as
Bo Schembechler does for 45-42 football
games. Yet the Lions are the only team
in the NFC Central Division with the
talent to give the Bears problems. But
now, forget it.
Darryl Rogers, as we all know, once
headed the football program at
Michigan State, and began to turn the
Spartans' program around until he
departed for Arizona State. Actually,
"departed" is too kind; "screwed
over"' is more appropriate. He took
MSU's recruits and sent its football
program spiraling to the Big Ten
basement, after denying he would leave

on numerous occasions. He is one of the
few people in the Big Ten that both
Michigan and Michigan State dislike
with equal intensity.
The fun continued at Arizona State,
where he turned the Sun Devils into
winners before suffering a 5-6 season in
1984. When the Lions job was offered to
him, he jumped at it. Well, not exac-
tally. He said that he wasn't offered the
job, and even when it was rumored that
ye was he denied it all. Then the Lions
said he was the new head coach, and
Rogers admitted, yes, he had been
hired and all of his hedging was a joke,
ha ha ha. Naturally, everyone at
Arizona State was upset at Mr. Rogers.
Can you say liar? I thought you could.
Perhaps General Manager Thomas
was looking to replace Clark with
someone a bit more exciting, or Monte
made Harold Shapiro look charismatic.
Indeed, the Lions got themselves one
great personality, who (after reading
George Barnard Shaw, no doubt) once
said that Michigan fans were "arrogant
asses." The man must have lots and
lots o' charisma. But so did Attila the
Hun.
And Attila probably had character,
too. If you look around the NFL, some
of the best coaches are duller than a
butter knife, but cut just as well. Tom
Landry sells Bibles in the off season.
Bill Walsh is always calm and in con-
trol. Don Shula is stoic and blase. And
Chuck Noll lives in Pittsburgh. Hardly
exciting, these men are the best in the

league because they are respected by
their players and thus can motivate
them to execute.
Not that Darryl Rogers doesn't know
how to run an offense. He is a supposed
offensive genius, unlike Monte Clark or
Bo Schembechler, or Bob Knight on cer-
tain Sundays in Champaign. Plus, the

the playoffs. They out-intimidated the
Raiders, neutered the Broncos, and
went 7-1 in their own division. This was
accomplished even though the Bears
became best buddies with the team doc-
tor. One of the casualties was quarter-
back Jim McMahon (With The Golden
Arm). Overall, the Bears had six dif-
ferent players start at quarterback
during the season.
The defense was second to none, and
Walter "I'll Never Grow Up" Payton
broke Jim Brown's rushing record.
Even so the Bears need another cor-
nerback and a more diversified offense.
Mike Ditka, who is rumored to eat nails
in his soup, will make sure this will
happen. They are only going to get bet-
ter.
The Lions, meanwhile, just won't jell
under the guidance of someone they
won't respect. The defense is non-
existent, and their offense can't carry
the load. The rest of the division looks
just as sordid. Green Bay scores at will,
but its defense couldn't stop the
Business School of Ypsilanti. Bud Grant
was lured out of retirement because the
Vikings were more lifeless than Gran-
ts's non-existent sideline demeanor. As
for Tampa Bay, well, at least their
uniforms are nice to look at.
So next season I have nothing to
worry about, as the Bears will go 8-0 in
the division, 13-3 overall. The Lions will
go 4-11-1 again and won't win that many
if Darryl Rogers doesn't get some
respect, and soon. Respect comes from
you peers, which you won't get by
calling adversaries "arrogant asses."
But Rogers did have a point. Some of'
us here at Michigan are a bit arrogant
at times. But at least we'll admit it.

football like a seasoned pre-med

But so what? The NFC Central is no
longer the embarrassment it once was,
and all because of the Bears. For years,
all that "Black and Blue" division
meant was the condition NFC Central
teams would be in after playing otner
teams from other divisions. Beat up
black and blue. Four teams would
finish 6-10 or 7-9 and one, out of
boredom, would decide to go 9-7 and
lose in the first round of the playoffs.
But the Bears decided to go 10-6 in
1984; and humble the mighty Redskins in
