Senior linebacker Andree McIntyre agonizes over a torn Achilles' tendon
suffered in Saturday's 49-0 victory over Long Beach State. The injury en-
ded McIntyre's season and college career.

(Continued from Page 1)
Michigan head coach B o
Schembechler. "He means a lot to
the team, and I hate to lose him.
"He's the key to our defense.
Taking McIntyre and Thibert out of
there takes out the two best
linebackers we have."
McIntyre, the defensive signal
caller, tore his Achilles' tendon in
the third quarter against the 49ers.
The fifth-year senior will miss the
remainder of this season. He was
enjoying his finest year as a
Wolverine.
Cooper, who this weekend started
his first game, suffered a knee injury
on the opening kickoff. He is side-
lined for an indefinite period.
"We've never had this many in-
juries defensively, but there's no
sense dwelling on it," said Schem-
bechler. "Historically, when some-
one goes down, someone comes in
and plays hard."
SCHEMBECHLER expects
senior John Willingham, junior
Bobby Abrams, and first-year player
Cornelius Simpson to provide that
hard play at linebacker. The 19th-
year head coach also expects his
offense to increase its load.
Quarterback Demetrius Brown
continues to gain confidence. The
redshirt junior completed six of 13
passes for 125 yards and played
steadily. Whether Brown is ready to
face Big Ten competition remains to
be seen.
"It doesn't matter if Brown is
ready for the Big Ten," said Schem-
bechler. "He's going to play."
The offense.continued to show it
could run on any team. Strong line
play allowed Wolverine running
backs to gain 436 yards. Senior tail-
back Jamie Morris rushed for 171 of

those yards on 20 carries while Allen
Jefferson, in only his third game,
accumulated 89 yards on just 10 car-
ries.
M O R R I S and Jefferson
combined to march Michigan 79
yards in three plays to start the'
second half. Morris had a 57-yard
run, and Jefferson scampered 20
yards for a touchdown.
In the first half Saturday, the'
Wolverines looked nothing like
Big Ten Champion. Long Beach
State (2-2) stopped Michigan on its
first possession on fourth and goal
from the one-yard line. The 49er de-
fense remained stingy, but their of-
fense failed to move the ball.
Michigan led 21-0 at half.
"I felt we could come back," said

LONG BEACH STATE came
right out on its first play from

the corner for 13 yards. But
quarterback Jeff Graham threw an
interception on the next play. That
pattern would be repeated all
afternoon. Every big play the 49ers
made was soon followed by a
mistake.

Harris
... calls on Simpson

By ADAM OCHLIS
With two more linebackers lost to injury, the job of
shoring up the Michigan defense may lie in the hands
of Cornelius Simpson, who in his first year at
Michigan wasn't expected to play at all
Andree McIntyre (torn Achilles' heel) and Keith
Cooper (knee) both suffered serious injuries in
Michigan's 49-0 rout over Long Beach State Saturday.
McIntyre, a fifth-year senior and possible all-Big Ten
selection, is through with college football. Cooper, a
junior who started his first game against the 49ers,
may also be out for the season.
And while defensive coordinator Lloyd Carr said that
John Willingham and BobbyAbrams would replace the
injured in the starting lineup, it was Simpson who
stepped in when McIntyre went down.
"I felt a little nervous going in there for the first
time - thinking I would have to play," said Simpson,
who himself is recovering from a twisted knee suffered
in the first week of practice. "Everybody was just
saying 'Get ready, get ready, you're going in there.'"
There is no time for the all-state selection from
Highland Park' to be nervous, however. Simpson will
be counted on heavily whether at starter or backup -
something that does not thrill coach Bo Schembechler.
SIMPSON, who recorded two tackles in his
quarter-and-a-half, was expected to take the route most
Michigan newcomers take and be redshirted. That is no
longer the case.
"It wasn't our intention to play him this year," said
Schembechler. "But we were out of business there.

Now we have to get him some experience. We'll put
him right on the special teams.
"Simpson will play the rest of the year."
And with those words "Neil," as he likes to be
called, has become an integral member of the
linebacker unit decimated by injuries. In all, five
linebackers who were expected to see much playing
time are out indefinitely.
Because of the prior injuries to Curtis Feaster, Mark
Spencer and Steve Thibert, Simpson had been
practicing with the second unit the past few weeks. To
be put in a position like he is in now, however, is
something nobody could have expected.
"I had an idea that I may play a little this year, but I
didn't think it would be this early," Simpson said. "L
just have to go out there and do my job to the best of
my ability."
Simpson posted 16 sacks during his senior year at
Highland Park Community High. He runs the 40-yard
dash in 4.4 seconds and he bench presses 390 pounds.
Now, however, he has to adjust to a much higher:
level of competition. And while Simpson thinks he,
will be able to contribute, one teammate says that'
nothing but excellence will be expected from the 6-3,
215-pounder.
"I think he can do a'good job," said senior nose,
tackle Billy Harris. "But it's not a matter of can he. He
has to. That's how it works at Michigan. Whether
you're a freshman, sophomore, senior, or fifth-year
senior, when your number is called, you have to go out
and not only play, but do the job and do it well."
