By RICK KAPLAN
And you thought Long Beach
State was bad...
No, that wasn't the Wisconsin
scab team. The 12th-ranked Wol-
verines picked apart the undermanned
Badgers Saturday at Michigan
Stadium, rolling to a 49-0 win, the
same score as last week's Long
Beach State destruction.
"I don't think we're the first team
to come to Michigan and lose 49-0.
I don't think we set the precedent,"
said first-year Wisconsin head coach
Ikon Morton.
IN AN unprecedented first-half
offensive display, Michigan ran up a
42-0 lead. The offensive numbers

on 15 carries, scoring t h r e e
touchdowns.
- Demetrius Brown completed six
of seven passes for 98 yards before
being replaced midway through the
second quarter.
- Eight Wolverines made pass
receptions.
- Michigan averaged 8.9 yards per
carry.
- Six of seven Wolverine
possessions culminated i n
touchdowns.
"Four-hundred-twelve yards in a
half," said Michigan coach B o
Schembechler. "I'd say that's pretty
good."
SCHEMBECHLER was not
as quick to compliment his defense.
"We're about where we'd like to be
in most every phase except defense.
We're just not right there yet on
defense," he said. "Now that's saying
something after two straight
shutouts, but it's true."
The defense may not be at the
level Schembechler wants, but it
was more than enough f or
Wisconsin's veer offense. Despite
worries about stopping a running
attack averaging five yards per carry,
Michigan held the Badgers (2-2, 0-1)
to 3.5 yards per carry. The veer,
which gives the quarterback several
run and pitch options, was shut
down by the Wolverine defensive
line, -led by tackle Mark Messner and
middle guard Billy Harris.
MESSNER thought Wiscon-
sin's offensive scheme doomed the
Badgers. "(The Badgers) didn't play
Michigan's defense, they played their
offense. That works well against a
reading defense, but I think they
have to reassess their offense when
they play against a fire-out defense."
"I expected this game to be a lot
tougher," said Wolverine middle
guard Billy Harris. "I watched a lot
of film on Wisconsin, and every
time I watched them, they looked
better and better. They have a big,
physical offensive line, so I was
expecting us to have a tough task up

The Wolverine defense, led here by linebacker John Willingham, held the Badger offense to 3.5 yards per
carry. Wisconsin was averaging over 200 yards per game on the ground.

front."
The task was simplified by
constant penetration. Michigan's
defense used its quickness to get into
the Wisconsin backfield, eliminating
the quarterback's options, and
forcing bad pitchouts. Five fumbles
and several poor passes resulted.
"THEIR DEFENSIVE line
did a great job of slanting into the
holes," said Wisconsin running back
Marvin Artley. "They shut off the
middle and made it hard to go around
the end."
Wisconsin's passing game was
nonexistent. Morton experimented
with three quarterbacks, including
new recruits Tony Lowery and Otis
Flowers. The Badgers completed just
two of 11 passes for 27 yards. The
last time Michigan allowed an
opponent fewer net yards passing
was in the 1984 Sugar Bowl, when
Auburn gained 24.

Schembechler gained the
opportunity to empty his bench for
the third straight week. Morris was
removed after the'first series in the
second half. The senior tailback
finished with 182 yards on 18
carries, breaking several tackles on
almost every carry. Morris had a
string of six straight rushes, except
for a one-yard touchdown, on which
he gained 12 or more yards.
With the exception of Morris's
replacement at tailback, Allen
Jefferson (10 carries, 59 yards), the
second-team offense was a
disappointment. Michigan gained
only 49 yards in five offensive series
in the fourth quarter. Backup
quarterback Michael Taylor looked
tentative in completing four of 10
passes.
Wisconsin looked outclassed in
all facets of the game. "I'm sure
there are some positive things that

came out of this game," said Badger
coach Morton. "I don't know what
they might be."

.Lions lose.
to Bucso

PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - Only
4,914 fans showed up Sunday to see
Tampa Bay defeat the Detroit Lions
31-27 in a strike game that had an
advance sale of 40,000 tickets and
turned on a fumbled punt.
About 21,000 tickets were
returned for refund, and there were
13,941 no-shows as the Detroit
Tigers battled the Toronto Blue Jays
in a crucial American League
baseball game at the same time.
Outside the stadium, at least seven
picketers were arrested for violating a
court order not to interfere with
traffic.

Inside, the Buccaneers came back
from a 17-0 first-quarter deficit with
21 points in the second quarter, and
scored the winning points with 2:17
left in the third quarter on Harold
Ricks' one-yard TD run two plays
after Detroit punter Mike Black
fumbled the snap on the three-yard
line.
Despite the NFL strike, fans were
supportive of the replacement
players. Three banners hanging from
the rafters each supported the non-
union players. One read, "Everyone
deserves a chance. Good luck to our
new Lions."
