Moecer expected to lead new
Michigan defense against N.D).

Rke !%i %r vo m

By PHIL NUSSEL
Just a year ago, people knew
Andy Moeller because his father,
Gary, was Michigan's defensive
coordinator.
Now, after leading the team in
tackles last season, Moeller has
made a name for himself and is
set to lead the Wolverine defense
into South Bend to meet Notre
Dame Saturday. They will be the
first to find out what new head
coach Lou Holtz has done with the

Irish offense.
"I'M THINKING about the
game just like every guy on the
team," Moeller said. "We're just
going to work on all the things
that make us a successful football
team."
Despite Moeller's .accomplish-
ments last year, head coach Bo
Schembechler expects more from
the 6-0, 220-pound senior
linebacker in '86 since he must
fill the shoes of last year's

defensive captain, Mike Mallory.
"Andy Moeller will have to
take over the responsibilities on
defense," Schembechler said.
"He is a real asset to the team. He
is one of the most widely respected
players in the Big Ten."
"I'VE GOT TO be this year's
Mike Mallory," Moeller said. "If
I do that, then I'll be setting the
tone. I've got to be able to make
plays.
"I'm not going to tell you I'm
going to carry the defense because
that's horse manure. Everybody
carries each other."
While Moeller wants to copy
Mallory's work, he doesn't expect
Michigan's defense to copy the
1985 defense, a group many

believe was one of the
Wolverine's best ever.
'" DON'T think, as a team, we
can get hung up on trying to
match last year's defense,"
Moeller said. "We're going out to
win the Big Ten championship. I
hate to say this, but if we give up
500 points and still win the Big
Ten, I would be happy.
"It's not that we're matching
last year, because statisically
that's going to be darn near
-impossible, but in terms of
making the big play - the fumble
recoveries, the interceptions - we
have the people who can do it."
Moeller is the only returning
linebacker, but there are six
experienced players battling for

the three open linebacking spots.
Either Andree McIntyre or Todd
Schulte will play next to Moeller
inside. Steve Thibert and Dieter
Heren, both starters against Notre
Dame last year, are likely to start
again this year on the outside.
"WE HAVE some holes, but
we have the dirt to fill them, as
(Iowa head coach) Hayden Fry
would say," Moeller added.
Unsurprisingly, the
Economics and Communication
double major patterns himself
after Mallory, who is also the son
of a Big Ten coach (Indiana's BiT
Mallory). The two played side by
side at inside linebacker on the
'85 defense, which allowed just 98
points. Moeller and Mallory
combined for 252 tackles.
"I don't want to pat him on the
back too much, but I think
(Mallory) is"just incredible,"
Moeller said. "I look at him and
say 'There's a guy I want to
pattern myself after.' If I wanted
to be compared to anyone as a
linebacker, it would be Mike
Mallory.
"I CAN'T think of a bad game
the guy ever played."
Mallory is now a grad
assistant for his father at Indiana

Moeiler
...defensive leader
after retiring from the Green Bay
Packers' camp in August. He did
not have professional size.
Moeller sees the same happening
to him if he went for the NFL, so
he has doubts about trying out.
"Oh, I can't play pro football,"
he said. "It's gotten to the point
where it seems like college
doesn't mean anything. They
hardly look at what you do in
college. They go on other stuff,
like how good an athlete you are.
So I'm not counting on pro football
at all."
Like his father, and his
protege' Mallory, Moeller likes
the possibility of going into
coaching, but he's been too busy to
think about that yet.
He has a defense to lead.
And if he helps it become a
better defense than last year's,
people may start remembering
defensive coordinator Gary
Moeller because he's Andy
Moeller's father.
