IT'S TIME to get serious about the 1985 foot-
ball season, and to some people in Ann Ar-
bor, the thought of how the Michigan
Wolverines might fare in this campaign is a
worrisome one.
Maybe so, maybe so, I say. But, just for a
minute, let's fade to black and take a look at
what might happen if it all comes together for
the Wolverines this season. Major rivals such
as Notre Dame, Michigan State, and Ohio State
are all there for the taking, so cue in a little
background music ("Mr. Sandman, bring me a
dream...") and take a look at the Michigan
Dream Season.

Michigan 29, Notre Dame 27 - Trailing by a
point, Michigan drives to the Irish 34 as the
clock runs down. With Ara Parseghian saying
his Hail Mary's live on CBS, Pat Moons nails a
51-yard line drive field goal through a driving
wind and pouring rain. Bo Schembechler could
only grin after the game when asked if he had
ever seen anything like it before.

Michigan 17, South Carolina 15 - With 50,000

and two touchdowns to ruin the George Rogers

dished up the record-breaker.
The ball sliced gracefully into left-

Rose tied the record last Sunday in
Chicago, going 2-for-5 against the
Cubs for career hits No. 4,190 and
4,191. He returned home Monday night
much to the relief of Reds owner

Old, new talent sparks spikers

Blocking out last year's final tally
(11-16, 1-12 Big Ten), this year's
Michigan volleyball team is all set to
bump off some tough Big Ten rivals.
With eight returning players and five
well-recruited freshmen, Coach Barb
Canning feels the Wolverines could
surprise many teams.
"The team looks good overall. We
just have a lot of balance," Canning

said, after his team placed second in
their first tournament of the season.
"The level of competition is up over
last year's."
ONE REASON FOR the increased
intensity on this year's squad is the
five talented freshmen who are
pushing the returning starters for
their positions, according to Canning.
One newcomer, Marie-Ann David-
son, 6-2, from Willowdale, Ontario,
brings much-needed height and

1429 Hill Street at Lincoln-just this side of Washtenaw

power hitting to the Wolverines to
land herself a starting position.
"She's really very versatile (as a
hitter and setter). She's not just tall
but athletic; and as a freshman, she's
very stable," said Canning.
OTHER FRESHMEN adding depth
and strength include Anne English,
Detroit; Pam Griffin, Livonia; An-
toinette Hall, Portage; and Julie Mar-
shall, Bloomfield Hills.
Among the veterans, this year's
squad will be led by seniors Jenne
Hickman and Andrea Williams.
Hickman, who was plagued by in-
juries throughout last season, will be
the only fourth-year starter on the
"She's (Hickman) a real leader and
a strong, aggressive player," said
WILLIAMS LED last year's team in
almost all statistics and was selected
to the 1984 academic All-Big Ten. This
year her role changes from the team
setting position to one of attack.
Another key player for the
Wolverines will be sophomore Lisa
Vahi. Although one of the shortest
players on the team at 5-7, she is an
all-around athlete and can play every
position, according to Canning.
"She's extremely competitive and
talented. She'll make the spectacular
plays, spectacular digs and hits,"
Canning said.
ROUNDING OUT the Wolverine
roster are seniors Karyn Kunzelman
and Lana Ramthun, juniors Patricia
Wang and Jayne Hickman and
sophomore Heather Olsen.
Canning feels this year's squad will
be able to competitively match-up
against such Big Ten powerhouses as
Purdue and Northwestern. The
Wolverines have overcome many of
the injuries that hurt them last season
and have added a little height. These

two improvements, Canning said, may
help their quest to be ranked among
the top four teams in the Big Ten.
This year's team is competitive and
experienced, she stated, and the
talent allows many playing options,
according to Canning.
"IT'S EXCITING because
everybody plays well together and
everybody has the ability to play
many positions," said Canning. "But,
it also makes it confusing because we
don't have a set line-up or a set
strategy yet."
Whatever the Wolverines' game
plan, they're doing something right,
placing second at the Kent State In-
vitational tournament, their first of
the year.
The Wolverines' first home match is
Tuesday, September 17 at the CCRB.

Cocaine witch hunt...
..,following foul lines
L INES. Lines Lines. What's all this fuss? So what if Major League
Baseball's top stars do a few lines to get them going?
The problem is people's attitude. Too many people - most notably
Baseball Commissioner Peter Ueberroth - too often consider big
league athletes pillars of propriety. The boyhood hero, never-give-up
image has been dragged through the white dirt this past week, and
frankly, it's not surprising.
Many are appalled at the number of players who've been implicated
in the trial of former Philadelphia Phillies clubhouse caterer Curtis
Strong. They shouldn't be. Substance use and abuse is widespread in
private sector business. Are baseball players angels? Certainly not.
Should they act like angels? No, again.
Because players use their bodies more aggressively than other
people do to make a living, and because people pay their hardearned
dollars to watch these players, knowledge that ballplayers abuse their
bodies with cocaine is nauseating. Right?
Don't blow lunch yet. Monday, Dale Berra (ring a bell?) of the New
York Yankees testified that he inhaled cocaine "off the end of an
ignition key" with other major leaguers. Tuesday, Berra spiced up his
testimony, admitting Willie Stargell and Bill Madlock regularly
distributed amphetamines - "greenies" - to teammates when the
three played for Pittsburgh.
All this in addition to a week of cocaine testimony from saints like
the Mets Keith Hernandez, Royals outfielder Lonnie Smith, all-star
Joaquin Andujar of the Cardinals, Chicago Cub Gary Matthews,
retired Pirate John Milner, Giants outfielder Jeff Leonard, and for-
mer Tiger Enos Cabell.
Wow. Simply mindboggling.
So what motivated this major league of drug users to such evils?
Same answer: Wow! Simply Mindboggling.
"It (cocaine) made me feel euphoric," Berra said in United Press
International. "It sharpened my senses." Mindboggling.
"I felt strong. I felt great. I felt a little invincible," Lonnie Smith ad-
mitted. Incredible.
In 1980, Hernandez hit .321. "That was the year I was crazy," he
would say. "That was the year of my greatest use." Amazing.
Hernandez had more to say. According to the veteran first baseman,
up to 40 percent of major leaguers were doing coke in 1980, "the love-
affair years" as he put it. Hernandez added that drug use declined
largely in response to the conviction and imprisonment of four Royals,
including Willie Wilson and Vida Blue.
Thank heavens. Without those convictions, there'd be a serious
problem. Players wouldn't be making headlines; they'd be doing
white lines.
In what appeared a light, frivolous treatise on baseball, Former Red
Sox and Expo lefthander Bill Lee documented his experience with
cocaine, marijuana, and greenies in The Wrong Stuff. As an Expo,
Lee had been embarrassed and criticized for admitting to pot
smoking. Nonetheless, after reading The Wrong Stuff, it would seem
Lee handled it well.
But Lee also talked about alcohol, that healthy, energizing, legal
liquid used for social gatherings. Lee said he often got hammered with
ballplayer buddies. Terrific.
That evil white powder has nothing to do with the blessings of
alcohol, at least it seems that way. That evil white powder is for people
who can't handle reality, preaches Peter Ueberroth. For people who
can't get high on life. That evil white powder is for deranged minds.
Just who is deranged? Minds whose bodies earn enough to buy more
white powder, or those who are appalled by the lack of propriety in the
major leagues?
