Bo hopes to get Wolverine offensive line aligned

i'C
M4#

By PHIL NUSSEL
With the season-opening clash
against Notre Dame just a little over a
week away, head coach Bo Schem-
bechler and the rest of the Michigan
football braintrusts are making the
final decisions about lineups on the
1985 squad.
The Wolverine top man held his first
press luncheon of the fall yesterday at
Webers Inn and gave the latest status
report on his team, which will be
hoping to improve after an un-
Michigan-like 6-61984 campaign.

THE FIRST announcement of the
day was that tight end Eric Kattus,
linebacker Mike Mallory, and
defensive back Brad Cochran will be
the tri-captains for the year. The
three senior standouts were selected
in a vote by their teammates Wed-
nesday night.
Mallory, the Wolverines' leading
tackler the last two seasons, was a
captain last year and retains the
status this season. The Dekalb, Ill.
native was an AP-UPI All-Big Ten
selection in '84 and is a consensus

I

preseason all-American this year.
Cochran, like Mallory, is also a con-
sensus preseason All-American after
having a banner '84 season. He has led
Michigan with 10 interceptions over
the last two campaigns.
KATTUS will carry a heavy load at
tight end because backup Paul Sch-
merge is ailing with a bad back. The
senior, despite only four catches last
year, is high on Schembechler's list of
hopefuls. "Kattus has had an outstan-
ding fall, outstanding," the head
coach said. "He's a good tight end, a
real plus, but I only wish I had more.
depth behind him."
Kattus is solid at his slot, but accor-
ding to Schembechler the rest of the
offensive line has undergone some
changes. Veteran guard Bob
Tabachino has been moved to center,
a position he has played sparingly
over the years. With this move,
sophomores Mike Husar and John
Vitale will battle for the vacant guard
spot. The two linemen, both checking
in at over 275 pounds, were redshirted
as freshmen last year.
Originally, it was thought that
sophomore Dave Herrick, who saw
action as a long snapper last season,
would be the top man in the middle,
but at last word, he was in the hospital
recovering from heat exhaustion. The
other two centers, junior Andy
Borowski and Mark Hill, have not
come along well enough to start.
EVEN THOUGH Tabachino is a
good lineman, Schembechler was
quick to say that the fifth-year man is
not an experienced center, thus
making the line one of his top concer-
ns.
Injuries have not been a major
problem, although a few players have
been banged up enough to put them
out of action at least for the Notre
Dame game. Linebacker Dieter
Heren and defensive lineman Dave
Folkertsma are both out with knee in-
juries. Triando Markray, a wideout, is
virtually finished as a player and is
now more or less a student-coach,
working with the young receivers.
Back-up tailback Phil Webb will be
out with a pulled hamstring.

The kicking situation, if anything, is
more confused than ever with the
emergence of freshman Mike Gillette.
Originally, senior Pat Moons and
sophomore Rick Sutkiewicz were the
prime contenders for the placekicking
job but Gillette, a standout from St.
Joseph, arrived this fall and is close to
making the travelling squad as both a
punter and place kicker according to
Schembechler.
"THEY'RE ALL pretty good," the
17-year head coach said. "Gillette's a
real competitor - he's not a freshman
from that standpoint. If he doesn't
kick, he can hold."
Schembechler hinted that
Sutkiewicz may do the kickoffs, but
would not name the man for the extra
points and field goals.
The main concern on the defense is
the depth of the front line. With
Folkersma out, quality backups may
be a problem should Mike Hammer-
stein, Mike Reinhold, or Mark
Messner get hurt. Sophomore David
Chester and senior Billy Harris will be
the main bench strength at that
position.
SENIOR TONY Gant, back in ac-
tion at safety after a long recovery
from a traumatic leg break, is making
a good comeback. However, Schem-
bechler noted his starting status is not
definite because "the two-a-days
(practices) got to him."
The starting time for a few of the
games this season still have not been
announced because of possible
television coverage. The South
Carolina game on Sept. 21 could be
played anywhere between 3 p.m. and
7:30 p.m. The Michigan State time is
subject to change, along with the con-
test at Iowa.
As far as Michigan's tough '85,
schedule goes, Schembechler didn't
sound very concerned. "I don't care
who we play," the general said.
"They (the players) want to prove,
something and I told them it won't
take them long to do it. We play Notre
Dame - they (the pollsters) will know
how good we are."

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Kansas City
Royals outfielder Lonnie Smith, the
first of six players scheduled to testify
against drug defendant Curtis Strong,
said yesterday he had used cocaine
with former Cardinals teammates
Keith Hernandez and Joaquin An-
dujar.
Smith said he repeatedly made pur-
chases and that one transaction took
place three weeks before the 1982
World Series which the Cardinals

won, with Andujar the winning pit-
cher of the final game.
SMITH SAID Strong sometimes
delivered the cocaine to his hotel
room and would often stay to use the
drug with Smith and other players.
"Did you use cocaine with Keith
Hernandez?" U.S. Attorney J. Alan
Johnson asked Smith.
"Yes," the player said.
"DID YOU use cocaine with
Joaquin Andujar?" Johnson asked.
