Wolverines face skillful Team Canada
By ADAM OCHLIS
Io you believe in miracles?
Well, for the Michigan hockey team
to succeed, it will need nothing short
ofa miracle as it steps out of Central
OCllegiate Hockey Association action
to play host to Team Canada for a pair
of exhibition games tonight and to-
morrow, even if Al Michaels won't be
here to witness it.
rEAM CANADA comes into Yost
Icy Arena (game time is 7:30) with a
2-$ record in games against NHL
teams, beating Vancouver and Los
Angeles and losing to Calgary, Win-
nipeg and St. Louis. In'addition, it is 4-
against U.S. collegiate teams with
0itories over second-ranked Min-
ngsota, seventh-ranked Northern
Michigan, and Michigan Tech. It's
lobe defeat came at the hands of
uiranked North Dakota.
Walt Kyle, assistant coach for Nor-
thern Michigan, last week's victim,
leaves no doubt as to Canada's ability.
;"They're awful. good," he said.
"They're better than most college
tepms you're going to play."
FOR RED Berenson's Wolverines
(3-3, tied for third in the conference),
they will have to adapt to a different
style of play than they are ac-
"They really move," said Kyle.
"They're not going to come out and
beat you up. They're going to beat you
on talent." That talent includes the
high-powered line of Cliff Ronning,
Mike Millar, and -Don McLaren, who
in twenty games have 41 goals and 34
assists between them.
Berenson, who plans to experiment
with his lineup since this is only an
exhibition, thinks good things can
come out of the weekend, including a
couple of victories.
"I THINK it will be a pretty good
series. They have a high powered
lineup, and I know they're a good
team. I like to think that we can play
with a team like this," said the ever-
optimistic Wolverine coach.
One thing Michigan has going for it
is its record in international
exhibition play from last year when it
beat both Japan and Spartak of the
Soviet Union. This alone shows that
there can be definite hope for a
. "You can beat anyone," said
Berenson. "That's one thing about
hockey. On a given night any team
FOR ONE Michigan player, this
series is more than just two games in
November. Freshman defenseman
Myles O'Connor played on Team
Canada for two weeks this past sum-
mer in Europe. He obviously knows
their weaknesses better than anyone,
and thinks the Wolverines can
capitalize on them.
"We have to let them make the
mistakes," said the Calgary, Alberta
native. "If we just stick to our game
and play the way we're capable, then
we have a chance. We have to force
their defensemen (into making bad
This first weekend of non-CCHA ac-
tion could not come at a better time
for Michigan. With the injuries that
have hit the team from last week's
fiasco with Bowling Green in which
cheap shots seemed to be the rule
rather than the exception, this
weekend should be a pleasant change.
"THEY'VE got a lot of tough
players," said O'Connor, "but they're
more of a finesse team. It won't be
anything like last weekend with the
rough and dirty play."
Tankers open with new coach

A new stroke has been added to the women's swimming
It demands a strong dedication and a desire to challenge
from its swimmers. It provides a genuine "family" at-
titude for its athletes and offers success to any swimmers
willing to meet the requirements.
THIS STROKE is no ordinary splash in the water, but it
has given Michigan's swimmers a new twist. The stroke is
called Jim Richardson, and he's the Wolverines' the new
Richardson comes to Michigan from a three-year stint
as assistant coach at Big Ten powerhouse Iowa. While in
Iowa City, Richardson earned his masters degree in
human performance and further developed his coaching
"I'm the kind of person that !elieves the most important
time is now," said Richardson. "You can't control what
you do right now and how well you do it."
RICHARDSON believes that there is too much em-
phasis placed on the future. "I think long range goals take
care of themselves if you strive to meet your short range
goals," he said. "But every now and then, you have to step
back and take a look at the whole picture."
The North Carolina native believes winning is second to
perfection. Richardson treats his swimmers as "family"
and really cares about their outside lives.
"I'm a quality-oriented person. I don't think much
growth takes place unless a swimmer is backed into a
corner and pushed to perform past her natural talent,"
The Wolverines will have the opportunity to show off
their talents today as they take on Michigan State at Matt
Mann pool at 3:30 p.m. Michigan finished last season with
a tally of 9-9, 5th in the Big Ten. Richardson said this will
be a "fun meet" where the Wolverines will be able to rate
the Spartans, who have "the finest freshman recruit
class," according to Richardson.

The staffers shaped up a bit last week as the
Pace for the Daily Line title came out of the back
stretch and into the clubhouse turn, but special
guest William Revelli was able to hold his own
gainst the young upstarts and maintain the slim
ljad that the guest prognosticators have held all
Unfortunately for the Daily football staff, that
lead could be opened up substantially if this
week's guest, Brian Eisner, is as good at picking
football games as he is at coaching the Michigan
men's tennis team. A Michigan State graduate,
Eisner has led the Wolverines to an almost un-
believable 15 Big Ten titles in the 16 years he has
been head coach. During that time his teams have
run up an outstanding 245-69 record in match play,
giving him a .780 winning percentage, which is
second only to Bo Schembechler's .800 among ac-
tive Michigan coaches. During his own tennis
career, he captained the 1961 and 1962 Spartan
teams, and was the number 10 ranked singles
player by the Western Tennis Association. In 1960,
he was the runner-up in the Big Ten singles cham-
pionships, and was a doubles finalist in 1961. But
despite his ties to the Michigan State program in
his early association with college tennis, Eisner
showed that his heart is no longer in East Lansing
- he chose Minnesota over Michigan State in his
