STOYANOVICH COMES HOME
Hoosier kicks for soccer and football
By MIKE REDSTONE
Picture yourself an all-state placekicker from the
Detroit area. It's the fall of 1984 and the time has come to
select a college to kick for. Over in Ann Arbor,
Michigan's top placekicker is graduating and his spot
will be up for grabs in 1985.
You're on your way to Ann Arbor, right?
Pete Stoyanovich was in this position a year ago, and
Saturday he will be kicking in Michigan Stadium - as an
STOYANOVICH, one of only six Michiganders on the
Hoosier team, did not select Indiana because of its
rebuilding football program under coach Bill Mallory.
Instead, Indiana got the nod because of its exceptional
Now, as a freshman, Stoyanovich starts as a forward
on one of the nation's top soccer teams, as well as being
Mallory's kickoff and field goal man.
"He's had a busy schedule, but for a freshman he's
hung in quite well," said Mallory, who is in his second
year at the Hoosier helm. "He has come through for us
so far. We think he has excellent potential."
STOYANOVICH'S SPORTS background includes a
considerably greater amount of soccer ball kicking than
football booting. The 6-0, 165-pounder was a two-time
soccer All-American while attending Dearborn Heights
Crestwood High School. He also was the leading scorer
for the U.S. Junior National team during its 1984 season.
Because Crestwood did not have a soccer program,
Stoyanovich began kicking field goals his freshman year
to keep his legs in shape. He played soccer in a private
league during the spring and summer. When the time
came to look for a college, Stoyanovich sought a school
with solid football and soccer programs, as well as good
"I was interested in Michigan and Michigan State
also," said Stoyanovich, who plans to major in business.
"It boiled down to a couple of things, though. I wanted to
go to a school with a top soccer program, and I was told
that I would be able to start as the kicker (on the football
team) my freshman year.
"THEY (THE HOOSIERS) have won the national
championship in soccer twice in the last couple years. It
was a great opportunity that I couldn't pass up."
Stoyanovich's decision appears to have turned out well
for himself, for Mallory and for Indiana soccer coach
In 15 soccer games this year, Stoyanovich is tied for
the team lead with eight goals. He also has three assists
for the Hoosiers, who are currently ranked second in the
ON THE GRIDIRON, Stoyanovich has helped the sur-
prising Hoosiers to 4-2 record by hitting five of nine field
goal attempts, including a 41-yarder. Stoyanovich's
biggest three-pointer of the year came when he broke a
28-28 tie late in Indiana's opening season win over
The transition to college life has not been an easy one
for Stoyanovich, who is far from a typical freshman. In
addition to his daily class schedule, the 18-year old must
practice with both the football and soccer teams.
Stoyanovich practices with the football squad from
3:00-4:00, then is driven to soccer practice, where he
remains until about 6:15.
"THERE'S A lot of pressure on me this year in both
sports," he said. "I'm looking forward to the challenge."
Despite his abundant soccer skills, Stoyanovich has
already been forced to miss one soccer game already
this year because of a conflict with the Louisville con-
test. His busy schedule has also kept him from returning
home this semester.
That's why Stoyanovich is excited about this
weekend's game. His entire family will attend as will
several friends who are Michigan students.
"It's going to be a thrill for me to come back to
Michigan and kick in front of the home-town fans," said
Stoyanovich. "I can't wait to get down on that field and

SPORTS OF THE DAIL Y:
Tudor, Cards blank Royals
By Adam Martin
Frieder puts everyone on hold
. . a IMWorinesuworth wai?
TWO FIVE-INCH stacks of messages clutter his desk. But time is a
scarce resource. The messages go untouched.
Everbody wants something from Bill Frieder these days, but the head
coach of the Michigan basketball program has little to give.
"Everything concerns me right now," he says from behind his maize
'n' blue desk. And everything means everything for Frieder. Sports
Illustrated wants a photo session, reporters want interviews, and the fans
want last year's top-ranked team to return.
But Frieder can't worry about what other people want. One month
separates the October Wolverines from the new, fresh, 1985-86 version
that takes the court November 22 in Hawaii. In one month, Frieder must
re-energize the veterans, teach the newcomers, construct gameplans,.t
cope with injuries, get people in playing shape, and build morale. All in
Can he do it? Can the Wolverines revive their championship potential
and conquer the Big Ten again? Can a team that lost in the second round
of the NCAA Tournament last season return to prominence and go as far
or farther in the tourney than people expected?
The questions, like the messages, go unanswered. To prepare for what
could be a pivotal season in Michigan basketball, Bill Frieder calculates
and considers, and above all deals with things at his own pace. The team
is his most important concern.
"Media attention is a problem," he
said. "I get along well with the media,
but to say 'yes' every time is burden-
some. I've got to crack down so it won't
affect our team."
The media wants to decorate the
Wolverines, to build fan expectation, to
construct heroes before the first tip-off.
Frieder wants his Wolverines to prove
their worth after the game begins.
The six-year Michigan coach doesn't
expect his club to run off an almost en-
dless string of victories like last year.
He doesn't even expect a Big Ten title.
"Seventeen (the length of Michigan's Frieder
'84-'85 win streak) is an exception,"
said Frieder. "When you look realistically, we could berbetter and go far-
ther, but not have the same record and maybe not win the Big Ten. You
don't know what's going to happen."
The future is uncertain. Frieder, however, isn't worrying about the
future. He's got to be at practice every day, like his players. The future
will be largely influenced by preparation. And Frieder keeps his eye on
"I'm not overwhelmed and happy (with the team so far) and I'm not
discouraged and disappointed," he said. "We're off to a decent start, but
it could be much better. And we've got a long way to go."
Frieder of course knows what Michigan was last year, and would like
nothing better to surpass last season's success. He also knows the
significance of the work ethic.
"You never know if (the players) realize how hard they're gonna have
to work to be successful again this season," he said. "No matter how hard
you work to get to the top, you have to work harder to stay there, and I
don't know if they realize that yet."
Frieder recognizes what kind of effort it'll take to win consecutive Big
Ten Championships. He recognizes how tough the conference looks in Oc-
tober. He even realizes how slim a chance there is to win another 17 in a
But the messages - of every sort - will have to wait.
