GOOD RECEIVERS PAYING OFF FOR BLUE
Jolisch, Kolesar return

September 13
at Notre Dame

By PHIL NUSSEL
Michigan football had a crisis
on its hands a year ago - it almost
ran out of wide receivers. The
coaching staff was so desperate that
it had to move an incoming
freshman running back to
wideout.
The only "experience" left at the
spot was Paul Jokisch, and he had
only played football for a year
since quitting the basketball team.
THIS YEAR the team has the
opposite problem. It has so many
quality receivers that it might have

to move to a three-wideout offense to
get the most out of the talent.;
The freshman, John Kolesar,
turned out to be a gem of a receiver;
catching 12 passes for 336 yards.,
Jokisch, at 6-8, had an expectedly
good season hauling in 37
receptions for 681 yards and two
touchdowns.
With Kolesar and Jokisch back
this year, the lineup would appear
set, but head coach Bo Schembechler
recruited what many believe to be
the top high school receiver in the
country - Greg McMurtry out of
Brockton, Mass.

THE ALL-EVERYTHING
athlete caught 15 touchdown passes
for Brockton HS in '85. He was also
a pro baseball prospect and was
drafted by his hometown Boston
Red Sox (he reportedly turned down
a $200,000 signing bonus).
Schembechler assigned him the
number one, Anthony Carter's
number. The veteran coach
admitted McMurtry will play, but
would not say how much.
Despite the freshman's billing,
the starters are not worried about
losing playing time. "It's going to
help us," said Kolesar. "This guy
(McMurtry) still has to learn a lot
of things like I did last year. I've
nevergseen him play, but I'm sure
he's going to be a good one."
Also in the playing time race is
senior Kenny Higgins, the team
scholar (4.0 GPA in LSA). The
Battle Creek native had a "great
spring," according to receiver
coach Cam Cameron, and is
presently the top backup.
'FROM A position that had
nothing year ago, now all of a

caller after starting the last seven
games in '85.
THE RUSHING game will start
from scratch with Chris Lane and
Erick Montgomery. In '85, the two
combined for a meager 257 yards
and two touchdowns.
The good news on the Beaver
defense is eight starters return.
The bad news is the defense never
gave up less than 20 points in any
game last year. The front line has
three experienced players back in
Gino Mingo, Rich Haggerty; and
Phil Alfieri.

quarterback Chip Ferguson. In the
last nine games of '85, the
sophomore hit'70 of 130 passes for
990 yards and 11 touchdowns. In the
backfield, Bowden has few worries
with freshman redshirt Sammie
Smith back after recovering from
an ankle injury after the third
game.
On defense, the Seminoles lost
both outside linebackers and a
standout lineman, just like -- you
guessed it -- Michigan. FSU's other
loss came at noseguard and that
will be the toughest position to fill.
Converted offensive lineman
Thomas Harp is next in line, but he
has not played a down.

at Wisconsin

Dave McClain, who died suddenly
of a heart attack last May.
NEW HEAD coach Jim Hilles,
McClain's defensive coordinator,
has 17 starters back from a team
that showed flashes of brilliance in
'85. Ten of the 17 are back on
defense including inside
linebackers Craig Raddatz and
Charlie Fawley. -..USSEL

sudden, we have four or five guys,
maybe six, we could play on
Saturdays if we had to," said
Cameron.
The good news, however, ends
there. A void was left at tight end
after Eric Kattus finished his
career. Only sophomore Jeff Brown
has any experience at the position

and that was just on short yardage
situations: He caught one pass all
season.
"The tight end position is a
problem," Schembechler said.
"Jeff Brown will start, but we're
very concerned about a second or
third tight end because I like to
have three tight ends,"

COACH: Lou Holtz (Career Record:
116-65-5; at Notre Dame: 0-0).
1985 RECORD: 5-6
LAST MEETING VS. MICHIGAN:
Michigan 20, Notre Dame 12(1985)
SERIES LEADER: Michigan,12-5
OFFENSIVE STARTERS BACK: 7
DEFENSIVE STARTERS BACK: 7
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Reggie
Ward (SE); Steve Beuerlein (QB); John
Carney (K); Cedric Figaro (OLB);
Wally Kleine (RT); Mike Kovaleski
(WLB); Steve Lawrence (FS).
The talk out of South Bend since
last December has centered on new
head coach Lou Holtz, the veteran
leader who left Minnesota to take
the Notre Dame job after Gerry
Faust's departure.
However, Fighting Irish
followers have said little about the
quality of the team's players. They
have said even less about the
squad's offensive outlook.
AND FOR good reason.
Holtz inherits an offense
without an experienced tailback.
The top two contenders to take over
for departed All-American Allen
Pinkett went down with knee
injuries last spring and may not
recover. The next prospect is Mark
Green, who moved from flanker at
the end of the spring.
At quarterback, Holtz must
resolve the onging battle between
Steve Beuerlein and Terry
Andrysiak. Both have considerable
experience, but neither has
stacked up the types of numbers
needed to win. --NUSSEL

Oregon State
COACH: Dave Kragthorpe (Career
Record: 28-280;at Oregon State: 3-8)

DEFENSIVE STARTERS BACK: 8
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Rich
Gonzales (QB); Dave Montagne (WR);
Phil Ross (TE); Gino Mingo (DE); Rich
Haggerty (DT); Jeff Schneider (LB);
Lavance Northington (CB).
The Beavers' second-year head
coach, Dave Kragthorpe, joins the
we have to rebuild our offense"
club after losing eight starters on
an offense that was shutout three
times in '85. Kragthorpe will look
for instant contributions from 13
junior college transfers.
Rich Gonzales will be the signal

COACH: Bobby Bowden (Career
Record: 156-642; at Florida State: 83-
32-2)
1985 Record: 9-3
LAST MEETING VS. MICHIGAN:

PLAYERS TO WATCH: Chip
Ferguson (QB); Sammie Smith (TB);
Darrin Holloman (WR); Pat Carter
(TE); Pat' Tomberlin (OT); Paul
McGowan (ILB); Stan Shiver (FS).
If there are any teams in
similar positions as Michigan,
Bobby Bowden's Florida State
Seminoles is one of them.
Like the Wolverines, FSU (9-3
in '85) lost two starters on the
offensive line including All-
American Jamie Dukes. The
Seminoles also lost their top
reciever. But like Michigan, FSU
has a host of quality returners on
offense.

COACH: Jim Hilles (Career

1985 RECORD: 5-6; 2-6 Big Ten

Howard (QB); Larry Emery (TB); Joe
Armentrout (FB); Fred Bobo (WR);
Rick Graf (OLB); Craig Raddatz (ILB);
Nate Odomes (CB).
If anybody can spoil Michigan's
Big Ten opener, Wisconsin can.
The Badgers are good at it. In 1981,
the Wolverines came into Madison
with the nation's top ranking --
they left 21-14 losers.
In 1986, the situation could be the
same when Michigan travels to
Wisconsin. The Badgers will be
remembering their late head coach,
