source of offense and he still managed
to pile up those numbers.
"HE'LL BE consistent through the
whole season," said Spartan head
coach George Perles. "He'll have a lot
of good days, and he's off to one of the
best starts of any Spartan running
"He's a great back," agreed
Michigan head coach Bo Schem-
bechler. "He proved it a year ago, and
he's off to a great start this year."
White had been carrying the team,
but quarterback Bobby McAllister
came out of his offensive shell last
week with an 18 for 27 performance,
good for 275 yards against Iowa.
Besides the improved statistics, the
freshman who took over for injured
starter Dave Yarema three weeks ago
demonstrated the poise needed to lead
his team's offense.
IN FACT, even though Yarema
may be ready to play this week,
McAllister will start and is the .only
quarterback for which Schembechler
"He's always had that notential."
commented the Michigan coach. "It
doesn't take much to improve when
you're good. He just had one or two
bad plays going, and it helped when he
came out and hit them right away
"I'm glad to see Bobby McAllister
finally show the things he's capable of
doing," agreed Perles.
FOR MICHIGAN the offense con-
tinues to demonstrate it's ability to
grind out the long drives that produce
winning football. After going seven
for 17 against Notre Dame in the
opening game, quarterback Jim Har-
baugh has completed 43 of 64 passes
To complement Harbaugh's ef-
ficient passing has been a productive
running game led by tailback Jamie
Morris. Morris has rushed for 383
yards on 84 carries for a 4.6 average,
including 96 a week ago against
Far from being a one man show,
though, Morris has received plenty of
help from his backfield companions.
Thomas Wilcher has scampered for
223 yards with his world class speed,
and Harbaugh and Gerald White have
chipped in with 148 and 118 yards,
SCHEMBECHLER is satisfied with
his backfield. Receivers Paul Jokisch
and Eric Kattus have also played
well, so the main area of concern con-
tinues to lie in the offensive line.
"Our problem has been constant in-
juries inside," said Schembechler.
"It's hard when you can't keep your
This week's missing piece on the
line could be guard Mike Husar. For
the third week in a row, the 6-3, 278-
pound sophomore was injured, this
time a slightly sprained ankle that has
left him- questionable for Saturday's
With Husar an uncertainty, John
Vitale will see extensive action for the
second week in a row, as will Andy
Borowski. In addition,Bob Tabachino
may see action at guard rather than
his usual center spot.
Schembechler has confidence in his
offense, but he doesn't underestimate
the MSU defense.
"Their defense has not played a bad
game," he .said. They're excellent.
They're real quick, well coached, and
they know what they are doing.
They're probably the quickest defense

This weekend is a special one for the
men's and women's cross country
teams. Both are hosting their first
meet in over two and a half years.
The Michigan Invitational is being
held in conjunction with the Big Ten
Championships which Michigan will
also host on November 2nd because of
an NCAA rule which requires any
school that has the conference cham-
pionships to hold an earlier meet, to
allow the other conference teams to
see and run on the course.
SINCE the Michigan Invitational is
the first meet in Ann Arbor in so long,

there is a definite advantage for the
Michigan runners. "It's a great ad-
vantage. We know where to run it
fast, we know where the hills are, we
know how to run it," said assistant
coach Mike Shea. "And this is as
tough a course as there is in the mid-
west. It definitely helps."
The teams coming for the women's
