FOGGIE, however, is recovering
from a groin pull that he suffered on
the second-to-last play against Ohio
State three weeks ago. He had to miss
the Michigan State game (the Gop-
hers lost 31-26) and was relatively
slow in Minnesota's lackluster 27-18
win against Wisconsin last week.
"He isn't at full speed and I don't
think he will be the rest of the year
when you have that groin pull," Min-
nesota coach Lou Holtz said. "But he
will be ready to play on Saturday.
He's awful beat up at the present
time, but he's a very intelligent in-
dividual and he's still going through a
"He means an awful lot to our foot-
ball team just like Jim Harbaugh
means a lot to the Michigan football
team. He's a real winner."
ALONG WITH Foggie, Minnesota's of-
fense has a dazzling number of option
variations that will keep the defense
guessing. "What we have to do is
change our defensive strategy
altogether," said Michigan coach Bo
Schembechler. "You have to defense
the option play which is very difficult.
"Minnesota has been tremendously
successful by making you play the op-
tion and then throwing the ball over
Defensive coordinator Gary
Moeller was also worried about the
Gopher offense, even though his
defense has given up just two touch-
downs all season. "They go from a
wishbone, to a pro-set, to a one-back
set, and never change personnel," he
said. "When you call a defense, you
don't know what you're going to get.
"SO THE kids really have a tough
time defensively this week because
they have to adjust every defense."
Minnesota's defense presents other
problems for the Wolverines. It ranks
second in the Big Ten behind.
Michigan, allowing 324 yards per
game and giving up 13 touchdowns in
"They're similar to our defense,"
Moeller said. "They're not a very big
defense and they just go like heck to
the ball. They're going to give us
ALTHOUGH the Gophers will be
without starting defensive end Mark
Dusbabek (injured against Wiscon-
sin) they will still have linebackers
Peter Najarian and Bruce Holmes,
who have combined for 205 tackles.
Dusbabek had 72 tackles and a pair of
However, the Gophers' best defen-
sive weapon could be the crowd - it
may be the loudest group the
Wolverines will face this season. The
60,000-plus crowd has the advantage
clear of the Fog
of the Hubert H. Humphrey
Metrodome which keeps all the noise
"It (the noise) is a great factor,"
Moeller said. "There's no question
about it. It's something we're concer-
ning ourselves about, but you have to
have officials that are going to take
over the crowd."
MICHIGAN, though, will have a boost
because offensive guard Mike Husar
is expected to play, according to
Moeller. The sophomore standout has
been out since the Maryland game
with a badly sprained ankle. With
Husar's return, senior Clay Miller
will move back to his normal tackle
position - a change that brings more
depth to the line.
As far as predictions go, there was
nothing cloudy about Purdue coach
Leon Burtnett's prediction after
seeing both teams this season (the
Gophers beat Purdue 45-14).
"Michigan will beat Minnesota," he
said. "There's no comparison bet-
ween those two football teams. Min-
nesota won't even score if they
(Michigan) play defense."
That's a pretty tough prediction
considering the Foggie conditions in
the Metrodome, but with so much on
the line for the Wolverines, it might
turn out to be a clear day.

There have been many great comebacks in
sports history. In 1969, the Miracle New York Mets
came out of nowhere to win the World Series. Gor-
die Howe came out of retirement at age 45 to play
pro hockey for eight more years, and of course,
Rocky Balboa bounced back from a ferocious
beating to regain his heavyweight title from Club-
ber Lang in Rocky III.
Then there are Daily staffers Joe Ewing and
Brad Morgan, who come out of oblivion in the past
two weeks to challenge for the Daily Line title. In

that time Ewing leaped from third to the top spot
among staffers and is now only one game behind
the special guests despite an 8-2 showing by last
week's guest Jon Urbanchek. Meanwhile Morgan,
who was in dead last, has made up a great deal of
ground on the rest of the prognosticators.
With the hot streak that the two Dailyites have
had lately, the guest guessers are going to need
some special assistance to remain in the overall
lead, so the Daily has gone all out and gotten a
guest who has come to be known as an expert at
giving assists-Detroit Pistons guard Isiah
Thomas. Thomas, who has played in four con-
secutive NBA All-Star games, set a league record
last season while dishing off 1123 assists for the
In picking the former Indiana University stan-
dout, the staffers were hoping Thomas would show
some allegence to his Alma mater when the
Hoosiers face Illinois on Saturday. But no such
luck, it seems Isiah knows his college football
almost as well as he knows pro basketball.

The Fighting Illini, pre-season
favorites to win the Big Ten in some
polls, try to salvage their season after
last week's thrashing at the hands of
Iowa. Quarterback Jack Trudeau had
his NCAA record string of 215 passes
without an interception snapped at
the Hawkeyes picked off four.
He should have an easier time this
week, however, against the Hoosiers,
who are in the midst of a five-game
tailspin after starting 4-0. Don't look
for them to break the streak in Cham-
paign this week.
