COACH'S FIRST SEASON AT HELM UP AND DOWN

Berenson talks about 'M

Editor's note: Red Berenson
recently completed his first season
as Michigan hockey coach when the
Wolverines were knocked out of the
CCHA playoffs last weekend. Daily
hockey writers Tom Keaney and
Chris Gerbasi talked to Berenson
about the past season and things to
come for Michigan hockey. This is
the first part of a two part series.
Daily: What kind of season was it for
you personally?
Berenson: It was a little bit of
everything. It was a learning process
for me, just to evaluate what we're up
against here...the competition, the
recruiting and our working operation
here. I think it was a very positive ex-
perience for me. It could have been a
helluva lot worse.
I didn't really know what I was get-
ting into as far as the real heart of the
team is involved, but it really worked
out pretty well. The winning and losing
has been tough on me. It was not easy to
watch our team lose some particular
games, but you've got to start
somewhere and we didn't have much
choice.
Daily: Was it an enjoyable year then,
in general?
Berenson: What's enjoyable for me is
seeing progress, some light at the end
of the tunnel. I couldn't enjoy sitting
here three years from now in the same
situation. My first goal here was to
change the image of the program as far
as how people look at Michigan hockey.
I think we've changed that. The overall
morale of the people around our
program and in our program is
positive.
Daily: How was this accomplished?
Berenson: Well, we certainly didn't
run a popularity contest this year. I
think the players want to see some
direction. I don't think anyone is
looking at the program as they may
have in the past, with the idea that

"Maybe they're not getting support
from the athletic department." There's
no question we're getting full support
from Don Canham and the athletic
department and the school. It's up to us
now to head in the right direction. The
players can sense that. Some of the
seniors have said they wish they were

year, but that's the same every year.
But for the players who are seniors
next year, their three years on the team
have been ninth place, ninth place and
now seventh place. It could be a very
competitive training camp.
Daily: What was your main accom-
plishment this year?

"My goals and my purpose in being here have not
changed. We're still not going to be pleased until
we're making good progress on the ice, that's the
bottom line."
- Red Berenson

hockey
Daily: Now that you have a year un-
der you, how do you compare your role
in contrast to your NHL coaching ex-
perience?
Berenson: The demands on your time
are comparable, although now it's not
team travel as much as it is individual,
recruiting-type travel. The winning and
losing is the same anywhere. If you
lose, you're distraught and if you win
you feel you're doing the right thing.
My goals and my purpose in being here
have not changed. We're still not going
to be pleased until we're making good
progress on the ice, that's the bottom
line. For example, Myles O'Connor
visited here when we beat Spartak. If
he had seen the State game (a 9-4 loss)
he might not have come here. So you
can see success breeds success.
It's hard to really compare the NHL
and college. Coaching is the same. Once
the game starts, it's still as stressful,
and it's an important part of my life as
it has always been.
Daily: You said in the NHL you were
living with "a gun at your head." Isn't
the job security better?
Berenson: Yes, but even in the NHL
I never worried about that (getting
fired). That hasn't been a factor.
Daily: No regrets about the move
then?
Berenson: No, but I will say this: I
know the rewards are not all here yet. I
just have a feeling that two or three
years from now, I'll sit here and wonder
how I ever got through this year, and
yet it wasn't really that bad.

coming back next year and that's nice
to hear.
Daily: How about recruiting this
year?
Berenson: Recruiting is a big part of
our future. This year, we've made some
good starts in that area, but by the
same token, talking to the various
scouts, it's not considered to be a strong
year. That will hurt our recruiting year.
At this point, we have two players who
are accepted and committed, Todd
Brost, a center, and Myles O'Connor, a
defenseman. We haven't missed on
anyone that we wanted to come outside
of one kid from Boston, who decided on
Harvard.
Daily: How many freshmen do you
see bringing in next year?
Berenson: Well, there's 27 players
on the team right now. You take out
seven seniors right off the top. We'll
need two goalies for sure. We're losing
four forwards, but you might see as
many as five or six new ones. We lose
one defenseman, but you might see
three or four new ones. We could see as
many as 10-12 new players. Some of the
players will have to earn their jobs next

Berenson: Our season this year
wasn't a strong season, but it had its
moments. We had some disappoin-
tments. For the most part, we could
play with most teams except
(Michigan) State. We should be an im-
proved team next year. From the in-
side, everyone feels good about what's
going on. The morale on the team is
good. As much as they were disappoin-
ted to lose, they weren't relieved that
the season was over. They wanted to
play and they're walking around like
lost souls now. There's something to
look forward to. From the outside, our
image is much improved from all stan-
dpoints.

TAMPA Fla. (AP) - Outfielder Enos
Slaughter and shortstop Arky Vaughan
were elected to the Baseball Hall of
Fame yesterday by the Veterans'
Committee at its annual meeting..
Both will be inducted at Cooperstown,
N.Y., July 28 along with base stealing
king Lou Brock and relief ace Hoyt
Wilhelm, elected in January by the
Baseball Writers Association of
America.
Slaughter played 19 years, the first 15
of them with the St. Louis Cardinals,

and had a career batting average of
.300. He hit 169 home runs, drove in
1,304 runs and was famed for his
hustling style of play. In 1942 he led the
National League in hits with 188 and
batted .318.
Vaughan, who died in 1952, just four
years after retiring from baseball, had
a lifetime .318 average in 14 seasons
with Pittsburgh and Brooklyn. He was
the NL batting champion in 1935 and led
the league in triples and runs scored
three times.

TORONTO (UPI) - Darryl Sittler's
second goal at 6:52 of the third period
snapped a 3-3 tie to lift the Detroit Red
Wings to a 5-3 victory last night over the
Toronto Maple Leafs.
His ninth of the year was a backhand
screen shot through the pads of Leaf
netminder Tim Bernhardt.
Left wing John Ogrodnick opened the
scoring for Detroit at 8:44 of the first
period with his 44th of the season, a

power play goal, when he banged in his
own rebound.
Power plays continued to provide
scoring opportunities for both teams.
Detroit scored at 13:56, when center
Darryl Sittler's slap shot from the left
face-off circle caught the top right cor-
ner. Less than two minutes later, Leaf
captain Rick Vaive made their first
chance good as he rerouted a shot from
the point at 15:51 to make the score 2-1.
