'M' tries to stop

potent 'Cocks ofense

By JOE EWING
Michigan is in store for a good old
fashion cockfight tomorrow when it
travels to South Carolina for its second
football game of the 1985 season.
Head coach Bo Schembechler will
throw his 19th-ranked Wolverines into
the ring for the nationally televised
contest (to be seen on ABC at 3:30
p.m.) with a scrappy, option-oriented
Gamecock squad that is currently
ranked 15th in the country. And the
result should be quite a brawl.
THE Wolverines come into the con-
test flying high on last week's season-
opening upset of Notre Dame. South
Carolina, meanwhile, did not play last
week, but already has scratched up
victories against The Citadel and Ap-
palachian State this year.
"South Carolina is a team with a lot
of enthusiasm," said Michigan
assistant head coach and defensive
coordinator Gary Moeller. "They live
on the big plays, and they'll make

them both offensively and defen-
sively."
The 'Cocks big plays on offense will
come almost exclusively from a play
that should be familiar to Michigan
fans and that dominates the South
Carolina playbook - the option. The
'Cocks should run the play on nearly
every down they have possession, a
fact that could keep Schembechler
second guessing his defensive
strategy all afternoon.
"LET'S SAY you're playing South
Carolina - well what's the pass rush
going to be?" asked Schembechler.
"Everything they do is going to be an
option or an option fake. They're not
going to back into the pocket. What do
you do?
Spearheading the 'Cocks offense is
not one, but two fine and experienced
option quarterbacks - Mike Hold and
Allen Mitchell. The senior duo has vir-
tually split the time at field general,
unusual in practice in today's one-

quarterback world.
"WE play them both during the
course of the game," said South
Carolina head coach Joe Morrison.
"We don't have any strategy, it just
depends upon the feeling and the
situation in the ball game. Right now
Mike's going to start for us. Then we'll
come with Allen somewhere. We know
he's going to play, and he knows he's
going to play. Exactly when is what
we don't know.
WHILE THE quarterback situation
may seem a little unorthodox, it has
been effective as Hold and Mitchell
have combined in two games, this
season for 145 yards and one touch-
down rushing, and over 500 yards and
three touchdowns passing. While run-
ning the option, both Hold and Mit-
chell have also set the table for run-
ning backs Thomas Dendy and Kent

Hagood, who have run for 147 and 126
yards on the season.
"This is really a good option team,"
said Schembechler. "They have two
great backs and they got the guys who
can run the offense."
Complimenting the 'Cocks back-
field is an offensive line that has been
somewhat of a surprise this season
despite being almost completely dif-
ferent from last season's front. Aside
from center Leonard Burton, no star-
ters returned from the 1984 season
when South Carolina went 10-2 and
clawed its way to the Gator Bowl.
"THEY'RE young," said Morrison
of his offensive front five. "But
they're learning. I think the impor-
tant thing is that they learn each time
they go out there."
The Gamecocks' offense will get an
additional boost this week from

Michigan's loss of linebacker Mike
Mallory, who suffered a pulled ham-
string in last week's game and is not
expected to play. Junior Andre McIn-
tyre should replace the senior captain
in the Wolverine lineup.
Just like on its offense, the
strongpoint of the South Carolina
defense is its backfield, where the
'Cocks return three of four starters
from last year's squad. Featured in

that secondary are All-South In-
dependent strong safety Joe Brooks, as
well as cornerbacks Chris Major and
Otis Morris.
The 'Cocks defense also sports
freshman All-American linebacker
Willie Hill, who made 135 tackles last
season, and ends Tony Guyton and
Willie McIntee, who both saw plenty
of action in 1984 in backup roles.

Tigers nail
sNew York's
other Niekro
By SCOTT SCHAEFFER
Special to the Daily
Detroit Tigers used their homerun
swings to hammer out five round-
trippers and hammer another nail in-
to the New York Yankees' coffin.
Darrell Evans paced the Tiger's at-
tack with his 35th and 36th homers as
Detroit bombed the Bombers, 10-3.
THE YANKEES, who have now lost
six straight games, fell 51 games
behind the idle Blue Jays.
Detroit ruined Joe Niekro's Yankee
debut by jumping all over him for six
runs in the second inning. Johnny
Grubb led off the second inning with
his fourth round tripper. Later in the
inning Alan Trammell singled to left
to score Nelson Simmons and Bob
Melvin. Trammell was plated by Kirk
Gibson's double, and Evans followed
with the first of two upper-deck shots.
The Tigers ended any chance of a
New York comeback in the fourth in-
ning when Trammell and Gibson con-
nected for back-to-back solo shots off
Rod Scurry, another recent Yankee
acquisition.
The crowd of 19,588 was treated to
the last of the twelve Tiger homeruns
in this series when Evans cranked a
Dennis Rasmussen pitch into the
cheap seats in the sixth inning. The
homerun, Evans' 36th of the year,
moved him ahead of Carlton Fisk for
the American League lead.
Frank Tanana pitched seven in-
nings and allowed eight hits to raise
his record to 9-14. Two of the runs
came in the third inning when Rickey
Henderson hit a solo homerun and
Dave Winfield singled home Don Mat-
tingly, who had doubled.
