The collegiate hockey career of Todd Carlile has
been an elevator ride. Right now, it is back on its
A SENIOR defenseman, Carlile was an honorable
mention All-CCHA selection after his sophomore
year, when he tallied 31 points. Regarded as a
premier "offensive" defenseman, Carlile slumped
in his junior year, scoring just 13 points, including
only one point in the final 15 games.
But Carlile appears to have regained his own con-
fidence, and that of his coaches, in the early stages
of this season.
"Last year was just one of those years," Carlile
said. "It wasn't that I wasn't in shape or that I
wasn t working hard. It was more mental than
"THANK GOODNESS this year has been going a
The statistics prove him correct. After the first
eight games, Carlile has two goals and four assists,
including a crucial goal in the Wolverines' upset win
over Michigan State last Friday night.
His defense has also improved dramatically. Ac-
cording to senior defenseman Bill Brauer, who has
teamed with Carlile in recent weeks, the duo is
"playing great. In the last four games, against State
and Team Canada, we've only let up one goal, and
that was while killing a penalty."
THE TURN-AROUND has been noticeable to coach
Red Berenson. "Carlile is much more consistent
this year," Berenson said. "He's making fewer
mistakes. Last year, his mistakes were blatant -
every time he made one, the puck ended up in the
Carlile is no stranger to putting the puck in the net
himself. His 23 career goals place him fourth all-
time among Michigan defensemen. He is currently
tied for ninth in career points by a defenseman
with 69. His next goal or assist will put him ahead of
former Wolverine and NHL player Greg Fox.
"He has always been recognized as an 'offensive'
defenseman," said Berenson. "That's his forte. He
may have the strongest shot on the team.
"HE HASN'T had a lot of defense emphasized by
his coaches. He has had to work most on defense to
play well for me."
Berenson has taken the offensive pressure off of
Carlile. "Last year we tried to work the power play
jaround Todd," the second-year head man said.
"This year, he's on the second unit."
The North St. Paul, Minn. native agrees that has
helped his game, but he would like to be back on the
front line. "I view it as a challenge to try to get back
on the first unit," Carlile said. "I want to do what I
did (offensively) my sophomore year. I don't think
it's out of my reach. But I think the defensive part
has helped me be a better all-around player."
HIS DEFENSIVE improvement has placed him
on the penalty killing team for the first time in his
career, but Berenson still wants to work him into
"I'm stressing offense more," Berenson said.
"He has the freedom to play well offensively, but
the responsibility to play well defensively."
Carlile has additional responsibility as the team's
assistant captain. "We named Frank Downing cap-
tain because he was the right man for the job, and
we named Todd Carlile assistant captain
because he was the right man for that job," said
"COACH HAS asked all of the seniors to exem-
plify as much leadership as we can," said Carlile.
"He wants the freshman to be able to look up to us.
"I think the younger players respect me, being a
senior. I just told myself before this year, 'This is
my senior year; I've got to make it the best year in
my college career.'"

Wolverines spike Bulldogs
SAT NOV 23
By JEFFREY RUSH
After a lackadaisical start Tuesday
night, the women's volleyball team
sent the Ferris State Bulldogs home
with their tails between their legs,
having allowed merely ten points in
the last two games of their 3-1 victory.
Michigan started slowly, eking out a
15-13 win in the first game after being
tied at seven points in the game. After
a 9-15 loss, the team took the last two
games by the identical score of 15-5 to
finish off the Bulldogs.
"WE WERE slow in the first two or
three games," noted head coach Barb
Canning. "We were just going through
0 the motions and the effort was very
Assistant coach John Rizzardini
agreed, noting, "we did not look good
at all in the third game. We had about
eight mental errors."
A team meeting between games
three and four was credited by the
coaches for the team's strong tur-
"THEY REALLY looked good in
*game four," said Rizzardini. "They
worked hard. Marie-Ann Davidson
came on real strong when we mostly
needed the strong blocking. She
dominated the game, which we need
her to do."
Canning credited both Davidson
and Jayne Hickman, stating that
ahead, said Hickman. "Ferris has
been very good in the past, so I was
really concentrating for them because
I knew they would be tough."
In addition to the strong play of
Davidson and Hickman, Lana Ran-
thum provided the edge that was im-
portant to the Wolverines in the latter
games. "Lana really stabilizes," said
Canning. "She helps pass the ball
around, and we us her a lot more in

to a 4-0 lead in the last game, and ex-
cept for a brief scare when the
Wolverines led only 5-3, the game was
all Michigan's. With Michigan up 10-5,
the Bulldogs were done scoring.
A strong serve by Heather Olsen
bounced the wrong direction off op-
ponent Kris Johnson's hands, and a
block at the net made the score 12-5.
After a side out to Ferris State which
the Bulldogs did not capitalize on, a
bad return made the score 13-5. A
mean serve by Lisa Vahi was barely
touched, and then a Vahi set spike by

Rangers recall Richmond
NEW YORK (AP) - The New York
Rangers of the National Hockey
League Tuesday recalled center Mike
Rogers and former Michigan defen-
seman-left wing Steve Richmond
from their New Haven farm club of
the American Hockey League. Both
players had been sent to the minor
leagues prior to the NHL season.
Richmond, who played for the
Wolverines between 1979-82, holds the
Michigan record for goals by a defen-
seman in a career (40), as well as in a
season (22, 1980-81). In 11 games for
New Haven this year, he scored two
goals and six assists. Last year, in 34
games for the Rangers, Richmond
had no goals, five assists, and 90
