A ONCE AND FUTURE HERO?
By BRAD MORGAN
For Dieter Heren, special teams isn't
just a job, it's an adventure.
Heren made a name for himself
earlier in the season when he blocked
a punt against Michigan State that Ed
Hood recovered for a touchdown.
Against Illinois on Saturday, Heren
became an even bigger hero.
WITH THE Fighting Illini's Chris
White lined up to attempt a game-
winning field goal that would put an
end to Michigan's Rose Bowl hopes,
Heren pulled off what could be called
the Miracle at Memorial (Stadium).
The ball was snapped, White's kick
was a little low, and the 6-3 Heren
leaped high enough to get the smallest
piece of his left ring finger on the ball.
Instead of going low and accurate,
the ball shot into the air, got caught by
the strong breeze that blew
throughout the game and wobbled
towards the uprights. Seeming to
hover forever, the ball finally came
down squarely on the crossbar and
dropped in the endzone. For Illinois,
the Rose Bowl was fading; for
Michigan, it was still a dream.
"I WASN'T sure if it was going to go
over or under, and then it hits," said
an excited Heren after the game.
"I said a little prayer just asking for
a chance to get a piece of the ball, and
tI got just enough of it."
Heren almost proved to be an even
bigger hero when it was revealed af-
ter the game that he had also tipped

yarder in the third quarter, that
provided Illinois with its only points.
THE SENIOR out of Fort Wayne,
Indiana was quick to credit the
coaching staff for his success.
"The coaches have put me in the
right position," he said. "Sometimes
my job is to create a scene, but this
time it was to be the scene."
Heren has seen playing time at
linebacker after starting the season
as a defensive back, but his main role
is still on special teams.
"WE TAKE pride in our special
teams. Usually people look at a team
as offense and defense, but we see it
as offense, defense and special
teams," explained Heren.
Linebacker Andy Moeller, Heren's
teammate on special teams, agreed
with that assessment.
"We were just trying to get up and
get it blocked," Moeller said. "We
always-tell each other that we've just
got tokeep believing becausewwe've
been there so many times with the
other team driving against us at the
end of the game."
"I just flashed back to the Iowa
game, and that was scary, losing in
the final two seconds," Heren added.
"We just didn't want that to happen

WOMEN FINISH THIRD; MEN, FIFTH:

In the women's race, first place was
expected to be a battle between
Michigan's Sue Schroeder and
Wisconsin's Katie Ismael. At the one-
mile mark, Schroeder made her
break and pulled into the fourth
position. As the race continued,
Schroeder grabbed third, which she
later lost, at about the 3.1 mile mark.
But by the end of the race, Schroeder
had yielded a couple more spots.
Her sixth-place finish was a disap-
