George Perles, owner of a 19-20-
1 record at MSU, takes his Spartans
to Champaign to take on the Illini.
The Spartans (0-2, 2-3) are
looking for their first win in the
Big Ten after a 27-6 thrashing at
the hands of Michigan last week,
and a heart-breaking 24-21 loss to
Iowa two weeks ago.
,One time Heisman hopeful
F'Lorenzo White should be back in
the Spartan backfield after missing
last week's blowout in Ann Arbor.
Another plus for the Spartans is
punter Greg Montgomery who
bobted an 86-yard punt against the
Wolverines and leads the conference
with a 46.7 average.

Ohio State this year, and with
Michigan and Iowa safely in the
loss column, it's quite possible for
M$U to win the remainder of their
games, finish 8-3, go to a decent
bowl game, and proclaim what a
great year they had.
As for Illinois (1-1, 2-3), Mike

The Hoosiers came the closest to
beating Ohio State since a 0-0 tie
in 1959, losing last week 24-22.
It's quite possible Indiana (1-1, 4-1)
would have won if the services of
star kicker Pete Stoyanovich had
been available. Stoyanovich was
attending his mother's funeral and
replacement Jay Tuttle missed two
field goal attempts.
This game at Minnesota should
determine if Indiana is for real. Last
year's Hoosiers also started 4-0, but
proceeded to lose the rest of their
games. If they hold true to last
year's form, Hoosier fans can at
least look forward to basketball

ranked #1 in the Sporting News
preseason basketball poll.

horrendous season with their only
win coming at the hands of lowly
Ball State. One bright spot is Rod
Woodson who was named Big Ten
defensive player of the week by UPI
and AP. He made eight solo
tackles, recovered a fumble, and
blocked a punt last week at Illinois.
Woodson also caught two passes as
a wide receiver on offense.

Linksters attempt to bring
Lady Kat championship home'
By JULIE HOLLMAN
Even though it's warmer in
Lexington, Ky., the women's golf
team could be in for a cold weekend
as it faces Big Ten champion
Indiana and a host of powerful
southern teams in the Lady Cat
Five Wolverines teed off
yesterday in the first round of the
three-day tournament. Jan Idomir,
Terri Mage, Donna Greenberg,
Missy Bauer, and first-year member
Krista Bunton will represent
Michigan's contingent. The
Wolverines will match strokes with
15 'teams from arund the cnntr v
to have an edge however, because
southern weather allows them to
have longer seasons.
Another factor which will
influence Michigan's performance is'
the course conditions. "Our course
here in Michigan has been very wet
and if Kentucky has gotten a lot of
rain it will make a difference,"
LeCLAIR hopes her crew can
register an 80-stroke average.
Idomir, who leads the team, boasts
the lowest average with 81.
However, in the first tournament of
the season at Notre Dame, she
recorded a 78 for the course. Mage
also faired well scoring a 79,
although her average is 81.5.
"On the basis of performances at
Notre Dame, an average of 80 is
well within our grasps. This is our
goal for the Lady Kat. The first
place finish at Notre Dame really
boosted our confidence. We are
more seasoned now," said LeClair.
After this weekend, the
Wolverines will get a week off, but
will be back on the road November
2-3 to Penn State.
