-m Guard Hammerstein makes his
comeback in time to sniff roses

By BARB McQUADE
Mark Hammerstein has seen
moments of glory for the
Wolverines, but mostly from the
sidelines.
The offensive guard was injured
in the third game in 1985 and
missed the rest of Michigan's 10-1-
1 season, including its 27-23
victory over Nebraska in the Fiesta
Bowl. In 1983, the last time Bo
Schembechler's team went to the
Rose Bowl, Hammerstein made the
trip to Pasadena as a redshirt
freshman but could not play.
THE FIFTH-YEAR senior is
finally enjoying what he came to
Michigan to do - win on the
football field.

Hammerstein said the torn knee
ligament that kept him out of
action for most of 1985 didn't
depress him until about this time
last year.
"The first two weeks it didn't
sink in what I was missing," he
said. "Then as the season went on
and we started winning and to get
some really big wins, especially
around that Ohio State game, I
really started to feel it. And then at
the Bowl, I was really kind of
depressed."
THE INJURY took months
of rehabilitation and kept
Hammerstein out of spring practice.
After the ligament was stapled to

the bone, Hammerstein's leg was in
a cast for four weeks and then a
brace for six more. He worked on
leg raises to keep muscle tone until
he was "able to jog and eventually
run at full strength.
Now, he said, he has improved
his playing level to where it was
when he went down.
"I've gotten to the point now
where assignment-wise I'm doing
fairly well," the Wapakoneta, Ohio,
native said. "Now I want to start
pushing more to get better and start
making some really good blocks."
SCHEMBECHLER agrees
that the 6-4, 285-pound strong
guard has helped his offensive line.
"He's gotten better," the Michigan

head coach said. "And if worse
comes to worse, he's going to have
to play quick tackle."
Schembechler's woes reflect the
recent knee injury to Mike Husar
during Michigan's 38-14 victory
over Indiana Saturday. A healthy
Jerry Quaerna, who was also out
with a knee injury, is expected to
cover that hole, but Bo is running
out of patches.
"I think Jerry Quaerna will step
in and do a fine job," Hammerstein
said. "But any time you lose a
starter I think it will have some
kind of effect. It's not that you
lose something talent-wise, but you
lose a little in the way you work
together."
HAMMERSTEIN has learned
in five years the importance of
working together. Last season, he
watched his brother Mike lead the
Wolverine defense at tackle. An
All-America at Michigan, Mike
now plays for the NFL's Cincinnati
Bengals.
"The thing I miss, and I know
everybody misses, is his leadership
on the field," Mark said.
"Everybody could look at him and
see that he was playing hard and get
some inspiration from that."

Hammerstein's inspiration now
comes from his desire to win a Big
Ten title and a trip to the Rose
Bowl.
"I think about that all the time,"
Hammerstein admitted. He said he
remembers reading a description of
the Rose Bowl that struck him
when he watched from the sidelines
in 1983.
"After the game, it's early
evening and the sun is just coming
over the top of the stadium with the
shadow of the mountains in the
background. That's a really good
feeling. I had that when I was a
freshman, but it wasn't a full
feeling because I wasn't playing and
of course we didn't win. That's
been in the back of my mind for a
long time.
"This year I'd like to go,out
there and have that same feeling,
but with a win after playing in the
Rose Bowl."

By ERIC MAXXON
Halloween isn't until Friday,
but the volleyball team hopes to
celebrate a couple days early by
shocking the visiting Michigan
State Spartans tonight at the IM
Building.
The last time the.two teams
met, in East Lansing October 1,
the Spartans dominated. "We
were never in the match," said
Wolverines' coach Joyce Davis.
Since then, however, the
young Michigan squad has
begun to show its potential, and
plans to catch MSU off guard.
"THEY WILL be very
surprised," says Davis. "They
will take us fairly lightly. We
expect to play like we know we
can."
If they turn that trick,
Michigan fans could be in for a
treat. The Wolverines finally
recorded their first Big Ten win
over the weekend, and may be on
a roll. Things seem to be gelling
at last, after a rocky transition
period due to a new coach and an

'Spartans
influx of young players.
The Spartans won't be
pushovers, though. They return
all six of their starters from last
year and seven of eight
lettermen. Leading MSU will be
senior middle hitter Shantelle
Schmidt.
TO WIN, the Wolverines
will have to shut her down. "We
want to limit her offensive
production," said Davis. "We
need to take her out of her attack
patterns."
Setting up Schmidt will be
Judy Doles. The sophomore
setter, "keeps the ball in play,"
according to Davis.
As a team, the Spartans aren't
powerful, but shoot for the
corners, employing a lot of off-
speed hits. As Davis said, "They
keep you scrambling."
Michigan plans to counter
with a strong match from their
middle hitters, Jayne Hickman
and Debi Bailey, who replaces
the injured Carla Hunter.
