TURNOVERS IRK SCHEMBECHLER

Bo: Dozen mistakes does in

M'

By DARREN JASEY
Michigan football coach Bo
Schembechler took a look back at
Saturday's 23-20 loss to Ohio State
and started to focus his attention on
the Jan. 2 Hall of Fame Bowl in
Tampa at yesterday's post-season
media luncheon.
After the Wolverines committed
four turnovers Saturday, Schem-
bechler called the 1987 Wolverines
his worst turnover team. Yesterday
the 19th-year Michigan coach ad-
mitted it was actually his second-
worst team in that category after
checking the record books.
According to Schembechler, his
first Wolverine team in 1969 had 34
turnovers. This year's squad finished
with 30, but bunched 18 of them in
the season's three biggest games
(seven vs. Notre Dame and Michigan
State, and four vs. Ohio State).
Schembechler's goal is one turnover
per game.
"If you can hold your opponent to
one (takeaway) a game you're doing
a great job," the Michigan coach
said, "But 18 turnovers in three
games, you aren't going to win
those games."
But Schembechler noted it was

more than turnovers that cost
Michigan the Ohio State game,
citing 12 plays that helped cost
Michigan the game.
Here's the highlights of Schem-
bechler's comments:
-Starting quarterback Demetrius
Brown is sacked and sustains a
strained knee with less than four
minutes remaining in the first
quarter.
"Up until that time we were
totally dominating. Now we took
the ball down their and did some
things, but what I'm just saying is
it started a series of events."
-Receiver John Kolesar's 64-yard
punt return was called back by an
illegal-use-of-the-hands penalty on
John Willingham in the second
quarter.
"That was a chintzy call. I don't
think he touched him. I think they
just got their feet tangled up."
-Ohio State running back Carlos
Snow being ruled down before an
apparent fumble a few plays after
Michigan's Jarrod Bunch fumbled in
the second quarter.
"We get that ball back and we're
at midfield. They don't score. I said a
few things to him (the official). I

can't tolerate that when everybody in
the stadium saw that ball drop."
-Snow turning a five-yard catch
into 70-yard touchdown play early in
the second half.
"We've never allowed big plays'
before. I have not seen that around
here in a long time. But, then again,
I've never seen a 98-yard run.
Minnesota's Darrell Thompson
accomplished that feat against
Michigan two weeks before.
"(Thompson's run) was the one
time in my career that I felt
compelled to make that tackle. I had
plenty of time to contemplate it. I
would have tackled him but he
would have put me in the hospital."
-Kolesar, who's recovering from
mononucleosis, dropping two
passes.
"You could tell he was under the
weather. He usually sucks that ball
in.
-A fumble by fullback Leroy
Hoard late in the fourth quarter after
he nearly fumbled on the previous
play.
"I thought Bunch went in for
Hoard. I was going to jump Hoard.
He was five yards down the field
before he got a hold of the ball."

The Ohio State game capped off a
difficult and injury-filled season for
Michigan, but Schembechler said
that a 7-4 record will not keep the
Wolverines down heading into the
Hall of Fame Bowl.
"It was a frustrating season but
it's not going to break our spirit,"
he said. "We got a good group of
guys. There's nothing you can do
about injuries. They can make or
break you. We had too many of
them."
"I like the Hall of Fame Bowl,"
he added. "I like the date, and I like
the opponent... and I like Tampa."

-Ohio State's 13 third-quarter
points were the most allowed by
Michigan in that quarter since
UCLA scored 14 in a regularly
scheduled game in 1982.

Grapplers strong in opener

By RICHARD EISEN
The wrestling team officially
opened its season this weekend at the
Ohio Open in Dayton, winning five
medals in the competition. The
Wolverines faced competition from
six Big Ten rivals along with squads
from all over the country, including
third-ranked Penn State.
"I was really pleased with the way
we wrestled," said Michigan head
coach Dale Bahr. "We went to a

tournament last weekend at Eastern
(Michigan), and we looked good. But
we looked better this weekend."
Nationally-ranked John Fisher led
Michigan. Fisher, seeded second in
the 134 pound weight class in this
tournament, thumped number-one
seed Ken Chertow of Penn State, 10-
4, to receive a first-place medal. The
coaches also elected Fisher the out-
standing wrestler in the tournament.
"Everybody (in the tournament)

was looking forward to that match,
and Fisher just hammered him," said
Bahr.
Wolverine sophomore Dave
Dameron turned in another stellar
performance. He finished third in the
126 weight class, defeating Chris
Gelvin of Wright State, 5-1.
Dameron lost his second match on a
last-second takedown and then turned
in eight consecutive physical per-.
formances to gain third place.

Spikers swept by Boilermakers;
Vahi stars in home finale

"Dave's a very, very exciting
wrestler to watch. He's very physi-
cal," said Bahr. "In two or three of
his matches, if he could have been
arrested for mugging on the mat, he
would have been."
Only three weeks after arthro-
scopic knee surgery, Michigan's
Mike Amine placed second in 167
weight class. He lost the title match
to Jerry Umin of Eastern Michigan.
Umin, a returning All-American,
scored a two-point reversal to seal
his 5-2 win.
Joe Pantaleo, another nationally-
ranked Wolverine, finished a disap-
pointing fifth place in the 158
weight class. Pantaleo held a lead in
his first match, 4-3, but during the
last seconds he and his opponent
were in a scrambled position. The
referee went over to the scorer's table
at the end of the match and after long
deliberation awarded two points for a
takedown to Pantaleo's opponent,
handing him the match, 5-4.
"That was particularly frustrat-
ing," said Bahr. "It's like a referee
calling another goal after the game is
over.
Bob Pokotar won the last Michi-
gan medal by finishing third in the
heavyweight division.

Power play problems
plague Blue offense
By KEN GOLDBERG
Since Halloween weekend when the Wolverines faced Illinois-
Chicago in Ann Arbor, the Michigan special teams have been
hurting. Over the six CCHA contests since, the Wolverine power
play has converted a horrendous 15.2 percent (5 goals in 33
opportunities), while opponents have reeled off 10 man-advantage
scores in 29 chances (34.5 percent).
The Michigan penalty-killing unit has slipped from third to fifth
in the league since the Halloween night, and the power-play unit has
dropped from fifth to seventh (.198), just better than Miami (.197)
and Ferris State (.151).
"I am pleased with the way we have played overall at this point,
considering," said Michigan head coach Red Berenson. "But that
doesn't mean there isn't room for improvement. On the power play,
it takes five guys working together, and because of injuries and game
circumstances the unit has not been together. It just hasn't been
clicking."
THE MICHIGAN team is
much improved over last season, and k
their 7-7 record (compared to 5-9) at
this time proves it. But the power
play has slipped from last year's 26
percent, and 25 percent the year be .
fore. With improved special-teams
play, this team might be 9-5.
What is more important, though,
is the effect poor special-team play
can have on a talented third-place
team which has realistic league title
aspirations.
Saturday night at Kalamazoo,
Western Michigan scored on three of
its seven extra-man opportunites in
its 5-1 victory. The Wolverines
didn't have many chances, but failed
to get many quality shots on goal
during a power play at 16:25 of the
first period (with Western up 3-0). O'Connor
Again at 7:11 of the third (with ... sorely missed
Michigan trailing 4-1), the power
play faltered. A goal in either in stance may have brought the
Wolverines back into a game they never really got into.
Several factors have contributed to the lackluster power-play
performance. The losses of leading scorer Brad Jones (to graduation)
and captain Jeff Norton (to the U.S. Olympic team), both key assets
in last year's man-up situations, has obviously hurt. The pair
combined for 22 power-play goals last season.
INJURIES HAVE taken their toll as well. Myles O'Connor,
the point man on the Michigan power-play, has not been 100 percent
physically the last few games. Sophomore Bryan Deasley, who saw
action for the first time this season after missing the first 12 games
with an ankle injury, is a big asset in the slot with his strength and
quick reactions.
"O'Connor is the key to the Michigan power play," said Michigan
State head coach Ron Mason. "He moves the puck so well. When he
starts playing like he can and Deasley comes back, their unit will
start scoring. With guys like that, along with (Brad) McCaughey out
there, they can be dangerous with an extra man."
Despite the injuries, the players who have played have been
slumping. Senior right winger McCaughey, who led the Wolverines
with 15 man-advantage goals last year, and captain Todd Brost (10)
have a total of three power-play tallies.
"Some of our goal-scorers have been struggling so far," said
sophomore defenseman Todd Copeland. "Between the injuries and
slumps, the power play hasn't been the same five guys all season.
It's tough to get it clicking when you have different guys out there
all the time."

Bring out the brooms - again!
The volleyball team, in what has
become a regular occurrence in 1987,
was swept Friday by a Big Ten op-
ponent, falling, 8-15, 4-15, 7-15.
The sweep marked the ninth time in
16 matches that Michigan has been
swept in conference play.
This time a strong Purdue squad
did the sweeping. The victory at the
IM Building raised the Boilermakers
record in the conference to 12-4, all
but clinching them second place.
Illinois had clinched the champi-
onship the night before by - you
guessed it - sweeping Michigan.
Debbie McDonald, a Redford,
Mich., native, dominated for the
Boilermakers, putting down 10 kills

for a .642 attack percentage. Mc-
Donald's height and jumping ability
was more than Michigan could han-
die.
Purdue compiled 13 service aces,
five each by jump-server Becky
Kanitz and topspin-artist Michelle
Erickson.
"Receiving errors killed us," said
Michigan head coach Joyce Davis,
"We've had problems adjusting all
year." Davis took responsibility for
this failure, saying that practice ses-
sions have not corrected past short-
comings.
Purdue head coach Carol Dewey
was pleased with her team's perfor-
mance even though they "started
slowly."
Lisa Vahi, Michigan's senior co-

captain, had a fitting finale in her
last home game for the Wolverines.
She led the team with seven kills
and 16 assists. It was also somewhat
fitting that the team, despite her fine
performance, went down to defeat. In
Vahi's four years, Michigan man-
aged only 13 victories in the Big
Ten
The Wolverines' record dropped to
3-13, 20-18 overall. Michigan plays
at Ohio State and Indiana over
Thanksgiving break.
