contests. In fact, in games that he
has rushed for over 80 yards,
Michigan is 14-0.
Although Morris was limited to
47 yards by Arizona State in the
Wolverines' Rose Bowl loss last
year, he has been known to have
some of his best performances in the
biggest games.
IN THE 1986 Fiesta Bowl vs.
Nebraska, Morris rushed for 156
yards and was named the offensive
Most Valuable Player. Last season,
the UPf All-Big Ten tailback had his
best game ever against arch-rival
Ohio State for the conference
championship. He gained 210 yards
on 29 carries, scored two
touchdowns, and also caught three
passes for 22 yards.
.More performances like that will
certainly help ensure another
successful, winning season for
Michigan. After all, that's what's
really important. 100-yard games
don't mean much if the team loses,
and Morris knows that.
"It's a team concept here at
Michigan," Morris said. "Everything

is for the team and whether I gain
one yard or 100 yards-in a game, it's
all for the team."
Still a few more 100-yard games
this season will certainly be needed
for the Wolverines to contend for the
Big Ten title. And another 200-yard
performance against Ohio State
would be a nice way to end a
sparkling career in -front of the
Michigan Stadium faithful.
That may be asking for a bit
much, but such a season would
definitely keep the attention of
Michigan football fans, and keep the
spotlight shining brightly on Jamie
Morris. Not even the rain could
wash that away.

accident during the summer.
the loss, "(White) in my opinion
would have ended up being one of

White is out for the remainder of
this season and his availability for
next season is questionable.
Tackle Warde Manuel (So., 6-5,
260), and middle guards Mike Teeter
(So., 6-4, 255) and T.J. Osman
(So., 6-3, 245) will also be counted
on to pick up the slack.
At 6-foot-3, 248 pounds Messner
is smaller and more mobile than
most of his linemates. The Hartland,
Michigan native indicated that his
speed helped him lead the Wolverine
line with 69 tackles last season.
"THAT'S MY key to success,"
Messner said. "I'm a little faster and
a little quicker than most linemen."
Messner is also looked upon by
his linemates as a leader. Said
Harris; "Messner is the guy that is
real energetic. He keeps the energy
running through."
"He is leadership by example,"
Reed said. "A great hustler. He is
good for the freshmen to see how it
should be done."
The return of a veteran defensive
line could help the Michigan defense
return to the form it had in 1985
when it held teams out of the end
zone in eight of 12 games. Messner
and Harris were both members of
that unit.
"Our line could be fantastic,"
Messner said. "We've got a lot of
experience. The defensive line sets
the tone for a game. A good front
line can really boost the Michigan

defense. If we work together we've
got all the talent we need."
"We're a hungy defense," added
Harris. "We just want to dominate
the line of scrimmage. Control the
tempo. We definitely can do that,
but it's going to take a lot of hard
