Blue-plate special

By BARB McQUADE
Seven weeks into the 1986
football season, the picture is
coming into focus.
Michigan (7-0, 4-0 in the Big
Ten) remains perched atop the Big
Ten standings along with. Ohio
State, and is one of only four teams
in the nation that is unbeaten or
untied. But Wolverine head coach
Bo Schembechler prefers to tune
out thoughts of a national
championship and zoom in on this
week's opponent.
"I know enough about this game
to know that you should put it in
the back of your mind and keep it
there," the 18-year head coach said
at his weekly press conference. "I
knowswe've got a tough game
against Illinois coming up at
Michigan Stadium and that's what
we'll zero in "

tied the Fighting Illini, 3-3, in
Champaign. Since then, Michigan
has won 11 straight.
"Even though we tied the game,
we felt good about ourselves,"
Schembechler said. "I think that
team really came together after the
Illinois game. Nobody has beaten
us since."
Michigan's current unbeaten
streak of 13 games is the best in
the NCAA. Schembechler agrees
that his team belongs among the
top four, but that's as far out on a
limb Schembechler will go. He's
seen too many teams fall out of the
tree.
"THE DIFFERENCE
between the top teams is
insignificant," said the Michigan
coach, who shares perfect records
with Miami (Fla.), Penn State, and
Auburn. "If there are only four
unbeaten, untied teams out there
after seven weeks, can you imagine
what's going to happen in the next
four? There's a lot of parity out
there."
Despite Bo's usual remarks
about the importance of every
Michigan game, he is likely to be
interested in Saturday's contest in
Iowa City. The 5-1 Hawkeyes host
Ohio State (6-2). An Iowa victory
Saturday and in the rest of its

games would remove a major
obstacle in Michigan's path to
Pasadena. Provided it wins its next
three games, even a Michigan loss
to the Buckeyes would send the
Wolverines to the Rose Bowl.
Since Ohio State and Iowa have
played in the Rose Bowl since
Michigan's last appearance, the
Wolverines would get the
invitation.
Schembechler's battle now is to
keep his team healthy and
motivated for the next three weeks.
After Illinois, Michigan faces
Purdue and Minnesota - hardly
glamour games. They are contests
the Wolverines can certainly win,
but a defeat in any of them could
crush hopes of a Big Ten title.
WITHOUT a loss, Michigan is
where it wants to be concerning the
record book. But what pleases
Schembechler most is that his team
has improved each week. In the
Wolverines' 38-14 victory over
Indiana, they pounced on the
Hoosiers early. This week, the
Michigan coach hopes to reduce
penalties and turnovers.
"If we can keep away from
turnovers and play mistake-free ball
in that regard, I think we'll be in
good shape."
That shape is molding into the
form of a championship as the
season spills into November, the
time of year Schembechler likes.
"That's when it gets nasty."

Brad Jones was rewarded for an
outstanding weekend by being
named Player-of-the-Week in the
Central Collegiate Hockey
Association. He will share the
honors with Michigan State's
Kevin Miller. The senior center
scored eight points in the two
games against Ohio State, in
Michigan's 8-2 win Friday and 4-3
loss Saturday. Jones did most of his
damage Friday, with two goals and
four assists. Jones now has seven
goals and nine assists, and his 16
points puts him fourth in the
conference in scoring.(See related

" The Wolverines' health took a
blow at Indiana when quick tackle
Mike Husar suffered a strained
ligament in his left knee. The 6-3,
289-pound junior will miss at least
two weeks, Schembechler said, and
will likely undergo arthroscopic
surgery to explore the extent of the
damage. Senior Jerry Quaerna is
slated to replace Husar on Saturday

against Illinois.

The Michigan volleyball team ended a three-match
road trip on an up note Saturday by defeating
Northwestern for their first Big Ten win of the season.
The victory partially atoned for the first two
matches of the trip, losses at Western Michigan and
Wisconsin.
The first conference win comes as a relief to the
Wolverines as they start the second half of their Big
Ten schedule still hoping for a respectable finish.
MARIE-ANN DAVIDSON led the way against
the Wildcats with 20 kills as the Michigan hitters made
the difference. Other outstanding players cited by coach
Joyce Davis were Heather Olsen, Jane Hickman, and
Lisa Vahi in the 15-12, 15-6, 6-15, 10-15, 15-10
nailbiter.
The win came despite a season-high 18 service
errors and poor passing.
"We were very fortunate Northwestern didn' t play

very well," said Davis. The Wildcats were "extremely
tired," she said, due to a tough five-game match the
night before against Michigan State. "They had to be
physically and psychologically depressed."
BUT THE Wolverines were still fresh, because
their match the night before ended after a quick three
games as they were dominated by Wisconsin 15-7, 15-
10, 15-11.
Against the Badgers, Michigan was "absolutely
pathetic," according to Davis. "We warmed up flatly,
and we played flatly." The lone bright spots were Julie
Marshall and Debi Bailey coming off the bench. "We
did not get a good performance from the starters,"
Davis said.
Against Western, the Wolverines put in a better
performance, but couldn' t compete with the powerful
Broncos. "We played with a good deal of intensity, but
we were just overpowered by them," said Davis.
