OFFENSES ALMOST IDENTICAL
OSU mirrors the Blue
.(Continued from Page 1)
"This is the first Ohio State game
we're going into that I'm not sure
we'll have to worry about the run fir-
st," said Schembechler.
"(Karsatos) is a very good passer.
He's a big tall kid with an excellent
"But we can't ignore the tailback
position either. Whoever they line up
at tailback will be a good one."
The loss of All-American Byars has
not drastically hurt the Buckeyes'
running attack as many people
thought it would. Byars is
questionable for tomorrow's
showdown, but Woolridge and 6-3, 228-
pound fullback George Cooper have
combined for 1261 yards.
ON THE Maize and Blue side,
Jamie Morris and Gerald White have
rushed for a total of 1258 yards. The
return of Byars could give Ohio
State the edge on the ground, but
Schembechler is not altering his
defensive scheme to accommodate
the possible return of the sorefooted
"Byars is a great back and a great
football player, but their offense won't
change much if he's in there," said
In the receiving department, Kar-
satos' favorite target is Cris Carter.
The 6-3 split end has 48 receptions on
the year, good for 789 yards and seven
touchdowns. Ohio State's big-play
man is flanker Mike Lanese. The
Mayfield, Ohio native is averaging
20.4 yards per reception. Five of his 25
catches have been for touchdowns.
IN FACT, OSU's top four receivers
have 1818 yards in receptions while
the entire Michigan receiving corps
has 1823 yards. Similarly, Michigan
leads the Buckeyes in total offense by
about nine yards per game.
On the defensive fronts, some of the
similarities between the two teams
disappear. While the Buckeyes are
fourth in the Big Ten in total defense,
they are giving up an average of 99
more yards a game than the
powerhouse Michigan defense.
Schembechler is not taking Ohio
State's defense lightly, though.
"THEY HAVE great secondary
backs and linebackers," he said.
"You can't say 'here's a weakness
and we'll attack that.' Particularly
their secondary is very good. Their
defense is one of the tops in the coun-
The inside linebacker tandem of
Chris Spielman and Thomas "Pep-
per" Johnson may be the heart of the
Buckeye's defense. Johnson, a senior
from Detroit, has 113 tackles while
Spielman leads the team with 116.
So it looks as if tomorrow's game
will be typical of the 88-year-old
rivalry between these two schools.
Oh, one more similarity between
these two teams - both coaches have
tremendous respect for the opposing
team. The statements are typical of
cautious coaches prior to huge games.
"Michigan is an excellent team,"
said OSU coach Earle Bruce, who is 4-
2 against the Wolverines.
"Ohio State has a tremendous
team," said Schembechler.

Jim Richardson is not taking the
easy way out on his way in as
Michigan's women's swim coach.
Richardson's Wolverines take on
19th-ranked Iowa in a dual meet

Richardson and Kennedey started

and then moved on to Iowa together at

they are swimming faster this year

The Michigan-Ohio State game this weekend is
not just an athletic event, it's a political hap-
pening. Politicians from both Michigan and that
barren state to the south will be on hand at
Michigan Stadium on Saturday to get their shots
in in the cross-state war.
Barbs have been flying all week between the
legislatures of both states, and a "lost penin-
sula" outside of Toledo will go to the state that
wins the contest. And now The Daily is even get-
ting into the picture.
This week, instead of seeking a special guest
from the field of athletics, we've gone to the top
of Michigan politics and coerced Governor
James Blanchard into playing the Daily Line.
In an attempt to please all of his constituents,
the Michigan State graduate selected both
Michigan teams to be victorious. As a politician.
he also had something very verbose to say: "It's
a pleasure to join the Daily Line for the week that
will see the State of Michigan deliver a double-
whammy to Ohio State. The awesome
Wolverines will crush the Buckeyes while OSU's
Lorenzo White eclipses OSU's Keith Byars' All-
Time Big Ten single-season rushing record. The
Buckeyes won't want to come back to "the
comeback state" after Saturday's drubbing."
Well put, Mr. Governor, because we don't want
the Bucks to return, not as a football team
anyway. Ob sure, they can come back and
deliver mail or collect tolls at the Mackinac
Bridge or bus tables at the sororities or
something, but they simply shouldn't return in
their scarlet and gray suits as alleged football
