Since Michigan wasn't
emotional for last weekend's sweep
by Illinois-Chicago, head coach Red
Berenson hates to think about the
hockey team's spirits going into
this weekend's series at Ferris
"Last weekend was a must
weekend because of where we
wanted to be," Berenson said. This
weekend is a must weekend because
of where we don't want to be."
That is last place. The
Wolverines had every reason to be
at the peak of their game against
UIC. The series was at home, and,
more importantly, two wins would
have put the Wolverines within
striking distance of fourth place in
the Central Collegiate Hockey
In addition, Wolverines were
smarting after the Flames rubbed
their noses in the stench of 5-2, 13-
3 losses at the UIC Pavilion last
BUT THEY came up flat,
losing 7-4 and 7-2.
Ferris State (11-17, 7-15 in the
CCHA) and Michigan (8-18, 7-15)
are only two points above last place
Miami. Given the -stakes, both
coaches expect a battle. However,
they don't expect the kind of
battling that occurred the last game
Our three-year and
two-year scholarships won't
make college easier.
Just easier to pay for.
Even if you didn't start college on a scholarship, you
could finish on one. Army ROTC Scholarships
pay for full tuition and allowances for educational
fees and textbooks. Along with up to $1,000
a year. Get all the facts. BE ALL YOU CAN BE.

the two teams played. The game
didn't go into overtime, but the
players' fists did.
"It was one of those things that
just happened," Ferris State's
rookie head coach John Perpich said
of the bench-clearing brawl. "It was
unfortunate and I know Red wishes
it wouldn't have happened.
"We're two teams desperately
trying to improve our positions,
but we really don't need that kind of
thing to happen."
WHILE Michigan floundered
last weekend, the Bulldogs moved
out of last place by splitting with
Lake Superior State. Ferris State
has won three of its last four

productivity of his second and third

Ferris State's top line includes
none other than the Lowden
twins-Peter and Paul. Around Big
Rapids the names Peter and Paul
have become as famous as the

"They have the ability to put
the puck in the net consistently,"
said Perpich. "They have a knack
for finding one another."
Peter Lowden leads the Bulldogs
with 21 goals and 44 points, while
his brother's 31 points rank third
on the team.

The Bulldogs' new found fire-
power is the last thing that the
Wolverines need. Michigan has
surrendered 36 goals in its last five
games. Not surprisingly, Berenson
has his team thinking defense for
the upcoming games.
"Sometimes we don't play with
safety in mind," the Michigan
coach said. "It's like driving a car.
If you drive offensively then you'll
probably get into an accident,
whereas if you drive defensively
then you won't."
As for the possibilities of a
Michigan sweep Berenson doesn't
even want to think about it yet.
"Michigan never talks sweep until
they win the first game," Berenson
said. "We went into last weekend

SPOR TS OF THE DAILY;
tumblers vault into Crisler tonight
BY JULIE HOLLMAN
They are geared up and ready to
tumble head first into battle with
one of Michigan's toughest rivals.
And the men's and women's
gymnastics teams will have no
reason to hold back: they will be
the underdogs at Crisler Arena
tomorrow night at 8:00 against the
Ohio State Buckeyes.
For both the mens' and womens'
teams, the Buckeyes would make a
worthy feast since they are perched
on the upper rungs of the Big Ten.
Both teams realize, however,
against OSU they may be biting off
more than they can chew.
"OHIO STATE has a nat-
ionally contending team and they
will be hard to beat," said junior
Mitch Rose, the men's captain.
"They always turn in consistent
performances and produce 9.0
averages in all the events."
Women's coach Dana
Kempthorne also expressed concern
about Ohio State's consistency and
strength. She noted that the
Buckeyes do ngt have a weak event,
and in their last meet they scored a
181, eight points better than
Michigan's showing (173) last
week against Western Missouri.
Kempthorne, who has set a goal
of 178 to 180 points against the
Buckeyes, stressed that the key to a
competitive effort will be
execution."We have to eliminate
misses since last week we were hurt
by falls," she said..
The Michigan women's team is
young and boasts only five
competing returnees. Seven
freshmen also contribute and
Kempthome feels they need more
experience before they become
comfortable with the Big Ten
conference. The Wolverines main
punch will come from Angela
Williams, Heidi Cohen, and Janne
The men's team will also look
to their veterans when they attempt
to break 270. Like the women's
squad, the men will concentrate on
hitting routines and turning in a
solid team performance.
