posed to throw," said Purdue head
coach Leon Burtnett. "He doesn't
throw into coverage.''
BUT intelligence is not Everett's
only weapon.
"He's got a strong and accurate
arm," said Michigan defensive coor-
dinator Gary Moeller. "His ball just
whistles in there. He doesn't float it,
it's just right there quick."
Moeller's defense tops the Big Ten
in defending the pass, giving up just
163.6 yards per game while having 16
interceptions to its credit. The
Wolverines also kept Long and
Trudeau out of the endzone, a feat that
no other team has been able to do this
season. However, Moeller still can't
rest easy.
"NOBODY has been able to shut
him down this year," said Moeller of
Everett. "He threw for 500 yards
against Ohio State and Illinois. We
have got to play our best football
game in order to shut him down.''
Well, it wasn't quite 500 yards in
both cases. Everett recorded 497 yar-
ds and two touchdowns while com-
Thi
Happy days are here again!
Going into the final stretch of the
1985 Daily Line schedule, it's still
anybody's game as the Daily staffers
have finally picked up some ground on
the special guests.
ONLY TWO GAMES separate the
top four prognosticators after last
week's brilliant performance by Joe

pleting 35 of 55 passes in the Boiler-
maker' 41-27 loss to the Buckeyes
three weeks ago. The week before, the
6-5, 212-pound field general led Pur-1
due to a 30-24 upset of Illinois, passing
for 474 yards and four touchdowns. 4
A little closer to home, Everett was1
the key factor last season when the
Boilers knocked off the Wolverines,
31-29,as he was 23 for 32 for 290 yards;
and a pair of touchdowns. The loss
still stings the Michigan defense.
"NOBODY, I mean nobody took our
defense apart in the last few years the
way he did last year," said Schem-
bechler.:
Of course Everett can't run the con-l
ference's leading passing offense all
by himself. There's got to be
somebody on the receiving end of
those passes. Surprisingly, his leading
targets are not his wide receivers, asl
is the case with most pass-oriented1
teams, but are his backfield mates.
Tailback Rodney Carter, a 6-0, 206-:
pound senior, tops the Boilermakers
and the Big Ten with an astounding 75
catches for 852 yards while comingI

Ewing, and a sub-.500 set of predic-
tions by special guest, men's tennis
coach Brian Eisner.1
In fact, Eisner was the first special
guest to be beaten by all four Daily
staffers in the same week.1
Oh well, Brian, at least the tennis
team is looking good this year. You do
have something to look forward to.

out of the backfield. Fullback Ray
Wallace has also been in on quite a
few pass plays, garnering 37 recep-
tions.
"We're trying to throw to our backs
a little more because people are
trying to take our outside receivers
away from us," noted Burtnett.
STILL, NOT many teams have been
able to stop the Boilers' receiver crew
of tight end Marty Scott, flanker Mark
Jackson and wide receiver Steve Grif-
fin, who have combined for 97 catches
and 1,381 markers.
With numbers like those, it's not
surprising that Moeller expects to see
Purdue pass 75 percent of the time
Saturday. The Boilermakers rushing
game has accounted for only 805 yar-
ds the entire year, but Moeller is
aware that the Wolverines could be
hurt if Purdue can put together a
ground game to go with its air attack. z :
"We don't expect them to change,"
said Moeller. "If they either pass or
run we would be alright. But if they
combine them we could be in
trouble."

NOW THAT the Daily staffers have
some momentum on their side,
they're going for the kill this week by
selecting a special guest who
describes his knowledge of college
football as, "just one notch below Bo
Schembechler's."
No, it's not assistant football coach
Gary Moeller, as you might have ex-

pected. Instead, this week's special
guest is men's swimming coach Jon
Urbanchek.
In selecting Urbanchek, Daily staf-
fers are hoping that the fourth-year
coach cannot match his 21-1 dual meet
coaching record.
In fact, we're counting on it.

A Major Events Presentation

Illinois (4-3-I) at Iowa (7-
1)
Showdown in corn country. While
Illinois has only a slim chance at the
Rose Bowl, neither team can afford a
loss if it wants to welcome in a
California-style New Year. Iowa's
Chuck Long proved he was human last
week by tossing four interceptions in
the Hawkeyes' 22-13 loss to Ohio State.
Mike White's Fighting Illini are
kicking themselves after turning a
near victory against Michigan into a
tie. The Hawkeyes get the nod here
because of the Iowa Stadium 'Temple
of Doom.'
Ohio State (7-1) at Nor-
thwestern (3-5)
Ohio State feasts on the Big Ten's
creampuffs, Northwestern and
Wisconsin, in successive weeks before
heading north for THE GAME in Ann
Arbor. Look for the Buckeyes to maul
Northwestern which is last in the

league in total offense. OSU's Keith
Byars probably won't play, but it
won't even matter. For the Buckeyes,
the best surprise is no surprise.
MIichigan State (4-4) at
Indiana (4-4)
MSU's offense, tailback Lorenzo
White, must be black and blue these
days. He's only 62 carries shy of Keith
Byars' conference record for carries
in a season. Meanwhile, the Hoosiers
have reverted back to last season's
form, losing their last four after win-
ning their first four contests. MSU's
recent resurgence could be enough to
get the Spartans into Cherry Bowl II.
Minnesota (5-3) at
Wisconsin(4-4)
The Badgers versus Gophers in
God's country - can it get any better
than this? Lou Holtz's Golden
Gophers are the league's biggest sur-
prise while Wisconsin is out to gain
some respectability by climbing out of
the Big Ten cellar.
"Around the Big Ten" was com-
piled by Daily sportswriter Jerry
Muth.
