The kicking game could be the
biggest plus with John Carney
back. The place kicker nearly
beat Michigan himself last year
with four field goals.
Notre Dame, though, has its
share of minuses, most of them on
offense. The questionable
position is at tailback. Both the
Francisco brothers - D'Juan and
Hiawatha - are out with injuries,
which leaves the duties up to Mark
Green, a converted flanker.
THE CRITICAL test for the
offense will be for the four new
linemen, who must not only gain
experience fast, they must learn
the complicated Holtz blocking
patterns.
For the Michigan coaches, the
problem with the '86 Irish is not
knowing the players - they
knocked heads with Michigan a
year ago. Schembechler and his

crew don't know exactly what to
expect from Holtz.
"I'm more concerned with
what to expect from their staff
offensively and defensively,"
Schembechler said. "There are a
lot of unknowns, so we have to be
able to make adjustments
quickly."
"Their ability to make the big
play scares me more than
anything," said assistant head
coach Gary Moeller. "Basically,
we're going to have tosmake
adjustments from the first series
until halftime."
The Wolverines are all set for
the game.nAll but one starting spat
have been determined. The last
open spot is at left outside
linebacker where Dieter Heren
and Tim Schulte still battle. Pat
Moons will be the starting kicker.
That's it for the pre-game
show. Now it's time for the feature

week it's Michigan basketball player
Antoine Joubert.
Joubert proffered his expert analysis with
his picks. Picking Michigan to beat Notre
Dame, he said, "They have a great coach and

have a lot of experience in Jimmy Harbaugh
and Jamie Morris. Their defense is one of the
toughest in the nation."

Bowling Green, Joubert said, "They
