Grapplers home to host triangular meet
By PETE STEINERT
Home sweet home. After almost two
months of away meets, the Michigan
wrestling team returns to the friendly
confines of Ann Arbor tomorrow when
it wrestles Notre Dame and Clarion
State at the CCRB starting with Notre
Dame at 1 p.m.
Michigan coach Dale Bahr admits
he is happy to finally have a home
meet. "It's nice... we tend to wrestle
better at home. Anytime you travel,
just like in any other sport, you have
tQ sleep in different beds, and you're
uncomfortable with the different
'THE NINTH RANKED Wolverines
;irst opponent, Notre Dame (2-0), un-
rier coach Fran McCann, has updated
its program over the past few years.
*According to Amateur Wrestling
News, the Fighting Irish had the four-
th best recruiting class in the country
Of the seven freshmen on the squad,
Jerry Durso (134) has been the most
impressive. He has placed in every
major tournament thus far this
"They've spent a lot of money on
recruiting," said Bahr. "They have
an excellent freshman class. They're
primarily a freshman-sophomore
team, but they have good quality kids
in the program.''
COACH MCCANN was equally
complimentary of Michigan. "They
have great talent although they have
been a little inconsistent lately.
Losing (John) Fisher has hurt them.
"Our main objective is to expose
our kids to good competition," he ad-
ded. "It will be a good test to see if we
can stand up against a team as
physical as Michigan."
The Wolverines' real test will come
in the second meet against Clarion
State (7-0 in the Eastern Wrestling
League). Virtually unknown, the
small Pennsylvania school is ranked
seventh in the country and has
knocked off national powers such as
Wisconsin and Oklahoma State.

DETROIT (AP)-Baseball is sup-
posed to be a game without time
limits, but the clock came to within
seconds of running out on the Detroit
Tigers before they agreed to a three-
year, $4 million contract with
hometown hero outfielder Kirk Gib-
"We got down to one minute and a
half," Tigers General Manager Bill
*Lajoie said Thursday.

deadline passed without an
agreement, Gibson would have
become a free agent and the Tigers
would have been unable to sign him
until May 1, some three weeks after
the start of the baseball season.
Lajoie said the agreement basically
~was one Gibson refused to accept for'
months, except for an attendance
bonus the Tigers included toward the
i end of negotiations.
Gibson will receive $30,000 in bonus
money the first year, and $35,000 in
each of the final two years of the con-
tract if the Tigers' paid home atten-
dance pases two million each year.
DETROIT, ONE of baseball's best-
drawing clubs, drew 2,286, 609 home
fans last year and 2,704,794 in 1984
when they won the World Series.
Gibson, through his agent Doug
Baldwin, had demanded a five-year
contract worth a reported $8 million
and declared late Wednesday that the
.Tigers' offer was unacceptable.
Calls to Baldwin's office in Seattle
were not returned.
Tigers infielder-designed hitter,
Darrell Evans, who has been
through the free agent process twice,
said Thursday that he believed
baseball's owners had agreed to limit
contracts to three years and undercut
the free agent system.

Although Michigan beat Clarion
State last year, 31-10, they can not
take this team lightly. Bahr described
them as simply a "very tough" team.
"They're just an outstanding
wrestling team," he added.
Clarion State's standouts include
Paul Clark (134, 14-0), Ken Nellis (150,
11-3-1), Ken Haselrig (158, 18-1), and
Jim Beichiner (190, 14-0).

mostly remain set. Freshman Kyle
Garcia will continue to fill in for the
injured John Fisher at 134. However,
William Waters, who normally
wrestles at 118, will wrestly at 126
against Clarion State.
"Waters and Doug Wyland (118) are
very important to us in the lower
weight classes," said Bahr. "From
there on up I look to our seniors who
are all excellent wrestlers and' have
won consistently for us this year."
After Michigan and Clarion State
square off, Notre Dame will face
Clarion State in the final match.
