Ferris wheels around M' for sweep

BIG RAPIDS - Ever had the same
nightmare two nights in a row and in-
stead of getting better it gets worse?
The Michigan hockey team had to
experience deja vu and beyond this
weekend as the squad dropped a pair
to Ferris State by scores of 7-6 and 10-
THE BULLDOGS looked nothing
like a team that had a 14 game losing
streak (12 losses in a row from last
season) and finished at the bottom of
last year's CCHA standings.
"They (Ferris State) are a hard-
working and hard-hitting team," said
Wolverine coach Red Berenson.
These qualities were evident from
the opening faceoff of game one as the
Bulldogs jumped to a quick 2-0 lead
only two minutes into the contest.
Before Michigan became involved in
the flow of the game, the team was
"WE STOOD around waiting to see
what the other team was going to do in
the first period," said Berenson.
"Then we realized we had to do
something and we did it."
The Wolverines started forcing the
action in the middle of the second
period and played their best hockey of
the weekend. Michigan narrowed the
score to 6-5 on goals by Mike Cusack,
Chris Seychel, Brad Jones and Brad
McCaughey. With six minutes
remaining the Wolverines had a
chance to tie the game on a power
While Bulldog Kevin McIsaac sat in
the penalty box for slashing, the
Michigan power play, led by Chris
Seychel and McCaughey, had
numerous scoring chances but failed
to put the puck behind goalie Dave
Sharpe. One second after the penalty
expired, Ferris State's Paul Lowden
from behind the Michigan goal passed
to his identical twin brother Pete, who
was streaking through the slot, and
Pete fired it by the defenseless
Michigan goalie Tim Makris.
THE CLINCHING goal was sym-
bolic of Makris' evening. "Makris was
a victim of a lack of protection," said
Berenson. "Except for the first goal,
which he dropped, the others were not
his fault. They had at least one man
open on all of them."
Berenson was pleased with his
P ICTURE yourself in an endless
sea of brown, parched corn1
stalks. The sky is gray - the driz-
zle seems like it's never going to
end. Oatmeal factories and fer-
tilizer stores dot the otherwise
bleak terrain, and huge silos can
be seen from miles away, rising in
the distance like monuments to the
laborers of Middle America.
Welcome to Iowa in October.
Most people are not too familiar
with the geography, of the state of
Iowa. Some may have hard of Des
Moines, Cedar Rapids, or maybe
even of Sioux City. But how many
people know where those towns are?
Now that I'm on the subject: How
many people know where Iowa is?
In fact, many Americans don't
think a whole lot exists in Iowa,
and judging from my experience
they may be right. The cruelest
blow to a visitor to Iowa is that
there are no professional sports
teams in the state. No NBA, no
NHL, no NFL, no major league
How can those people live like
that? On the late news the local
population is fed United States
Hockey League scores and results
from a full slate of high school
volleyball action. Pretty pathetic.
But within this barren sports
wasteland there exists a tiny spot
on the map called Iowa City. Only
there can the people gather with
pride, because that microscopic
piece of land is the home of the
And on Saturday afternoon,
66,350- of those sports-starved
Iowans gathered into a black and
gold mass to cheer on their beloved
football heroes. Let me tell you.
Those people love their Hawkeyes.
And after the game they loved
them even more, if that is possible.
Yes, Michigan's unbeaten bub-
ble was popped 12-10 Saturday, and
Iowa City flew into a rage. The
Wolverines crossed the huge plains
of corn to do battle with the num-
ber one team in the nation. The
visitors played with tremendous
poise but, alas, were beaten by less
than a field goal.
These Iowans are not used to
having a number one anything.
And after their team finished off
the Wolverines' on a last-second
field goal, all hell broke loose. I
haven't seen a celebration like that
since experiencing downtown
Detroit after the Tigers' pennant-
winning game last October.
Before the ball had even com-
pleted its trip through the uprights,
fans inundated the field -
jumping, tackling, and high-fiving
all over each other. They just

stayed, cheering and waving their
banners, and flashing their
"Hawkeyes #1" sponge fingers. The
north endzone goalpost didn't even
go down until the game had been
over for 45 minutes.
And two hours after the
Hawkeyes had reaffirmed their
number one status, horns were still
blowing in a traffic jam around the
stadium. The atmosphere was
festive to say the least.
Not only the fans were ecstatic
either. The coaches and players
didn't even try to conceal their joy
and pride after the battle had en-

game comments reeked with
arrogance, but he was in his home

That town had an aura of real
excitement about it that night.
Even though I was depressed over
Michigan's loss, I couldn't help but
get caught up in the jubiliation that
gripped all of the people on that
cold rainy night. I was actually
happy that they finally had a num-
ber one team.

short. "We put ourselves down 6-1 and
you can't do that and expect to win
hockey games," commented the
Wolverine boss. "Our players showed
a lot of heart to bounce back.
Bulldog coach Dick Bertrand was
impressed by the Michigan effort.
"We were lucky to come out of this the
way we did," said Bertrand. "I hate to
think what would have happened if
there were five more minutes in the
game. They were coming at us pretty

Ferris State's young squad that in-
cludes 14 freshmen did learn a lesson
from the victory. After a well-played
first period Saturday night, the
Bulldogs led 2-1 on two power play
goals by Rod Schluter.
The team pounced on Michigan in
the second period scoring five goals in
a six minute span to take a 7-1 lead.
Once again the Wolverines had to play
catch up hockey. On this occasion,
though, the Bulldogs never lapsed and
went on to an easy 10-5 win.
"I FEEL good about our progress
because we learned from last night
(Friday)," commented Bertrand.
"Tonight we stuck to our game. Our
guys didn't dump it out or ice it
carelessly from our end."
Michigan goalie Bob Lindgren, with
virtually no defensive support, had an
even tougher evening than Makris. "I
thought Michigan had a little problem
in goal," said Bertrand. "We did not
take as much advantage of that as we

A couple of Wolverines had standout
performances despite the one-sided
weekend results. "I thought Mc-
Caughey and Seychel played hard and
gave everything they had," said
Berenson. "Also Todd Brost did not
show up on the score sheet, but he
made things happen.
"We are going to need a team effort
to win. We can't rely on three guys a
weekend to carry the team."

tighten, the bad dream may become
