T HE UNIVERSITY of Maryland stormed
into Michigan Stadium on Saturday with
plenty of advance warning and the reputation
for packing a mean punch, but much like the
hurricane that threatened its campus all week,
the Terrapins simply fizzled out with a whim-
per instead of a bang in the face of a fired up
Poise, intensity and emotion continued to be
the aces in Michigan's hole, and for the third
week in a row, the offensive and defensive lines
taught the opposing team another lesson at the
Wolverine-run School of Hard Blocks.
So now the suddenly mighty (as opposed to
their preseason label of once mighty)
Wolverines stand at 3-0 at a time most people
thought 0-3 was a distinct possibility. A trio of
wins over highly respected opponents has put
Michigan into the groove and ready to jam into
the realfootball season - the Big Ten schedule
and the race for the Roses.
"The preliminaries are over," said defensive
tackle Mike Hammerstein. "It's almost like
starting over, like going in with a 0-0 record.
Those three games don't mean anything
towards winning the titles."
But the Hammer was wrong
Ahh, but that's where he's wrong. Sure the
games don't count in the conference standings,
but in mental and physical preparation, they
mean everything, especially this season when
it appears the Big Ten is looking like it will be
tougher than any year in recent memory.
Another Top 20 blowout.. .
...schedule builds confidence
'M' stickers tie
Irad Morgan ;
Spartans in OT
Conference teams went 22-5 in non-
conference match-ups this fall, and while most
were against creampuffs like Wichita State and
Drake, the overall level of play was outstan-
ding. Iowa and Ohio State have performed
about as expected, rising to numbers three and
four in the country, respectively, and Purdue,
Minnesota and (gasp!) Indiana have risen up
to take up the slack caused by highly-touted
But, even though they were playing well,
they weren't learning as much as the Michigan
team was. It simply stands to reason that
playing three top 20 teams with a strong foot-
ball background will help a program develop
more than facing off against three division two
schools for whom football is a weekend diver-
"Nobody in this conference is playing as well
as Michigan," said a smug Schembechler.
"They all took different routes (to a winning
record), and there is a hell of a difference bet-
ween the two."
Fundamentals make difference
That difference shows up most in the one
area all coaches harp on - fundamentals.
Other than the slew of penalties thrown during
the South Carolina game by flag-happy rebel
referees, Michigan has been nearly flawless at
the basic levels of the game.
Blocking and tackling have both improved
each game to the point to where they were
overwhelming against Maryland. The offense
is grinding out perfectly executed touchdown
marches, and other than the three crucial fum-
bles this week, turnovers have been held to a
But perhaps the biggest plus of playing the
tough schedule to prepare for the Big Ten
games is the boost in confidence the big vic-
tories provide. After knocking off Notre Dame,
South Carolina and Maryland, Michigan
players know they can beat anybody if they
play up to their potential. Do you think Iowa
can say the same after whipping the ever-tough
trio of Drake, Northern Illinois and Iowa State?
I have to laugh.
"No matter what defense is playing we know
we are going to be able to play against them,"
said quarterback Jim Harbaugh. "There is an
attitude, a kind of camaraderie on this team
that will prevent a letdown."
So, even though they won't directly help
Michigan earn a trip to the Rose Bowl, they will
help indirectly by mentally and physically con-
ditioning an increasingly confident Wolverine
team. Even Schembechler, who always scoffs
at nonconference results, is elated.
"Winning these three is a hell of a thing
because we weren't supposed to," he said with
a satisfied smile. "Even if we don't win another
game this year, it would still be a hell of a

Although Michigan's record before
conference play started was 0-5-1, the
Wolverines field hockey team has
completed its first Big Ten game
without a loss.
Yesterday's 0-0 overtime tie with
Michigan State's team combined
many of the elements that have
become synonymous with this year's
squad. Michigan led State in shots on
goal 21-8, in penalty corners 13-5, and
controlled the tempo for most of the
THREE TIMES mounting
sustained attacks on the Spartan's
goal three times Michigan came up
empty. The Wolverine defense, led by
junior Dorie McCubbrey, was again
extremely tough, filling the passing
lanes and keeping the attack far from
the Maize and Blue end.
"I'm pleased with the performance,
not the outcome," said Michigan
coach Karen Collins.
The biggest mystery for the
Wolverines continues to be why they
cannot score. They have not found the
net on a penalty corner all year, and
in seven games have been able to
muster only two goals overall. Collins
cannot find the flaw that has held her
team scoreless despite its constant
pressure. "I don't know. I just don't
THE YEAR-long string of bad lucid

when star midfielder Joan Taylor
went down midway through the
second half after being hit squarely in
the hand by a hard-struck ball. She
left for the remainder of the game
with a broken hand and will join Jane
Nixon, the other star junior mid-
fielder on the disabled list for next
week's game against Iowa. She will be
out for 3 to 4 weeks.
Coach Collins points toward thE
Iowa contest as an indicator for how
the Blue will do in this year's con-

The Wolverine women's golf team
came home from a topsy-turvy
weekend which sent them spinning to
a sixth place finish at an invitational
tourney held at MSU.
Valerie Madill, a Flint junior who
went into this season looking to rid
herself of the inconsistency that has
plagued her in the past, was the rmost
consistent of the Wolverines with 4on
secutive rounds of 81-81-82. Mean
while, junior Melissa Bauer reboun-
ded from a first round 88 to blaze
through the East Lansing course to a
team low round of 79.
COACH SUE LeClair was op-
timistic, noting that, "We're doing
fair on the year," with the MSU in-
vitational being no exception. She was
also happy that none of the players
shot individual rounds over 90.
While the Wolverines' inconsistent
was their downfall, it was Michigan
State's consistency that led theme to
the top. State's Lisa Marino took
medalist honors, as she did the
weekend before in Ann Arbor,
shooting 77-75-73 for a 225.
Teammate Paige Green was second
in the tourney with a 76-74-77 for a 257.
MSU won with a total score of 921,
while Iowa was second and Illinois,
third with scores of 936 and 93
