Hoosiers armed
Must-win situation for Blue

and ready for

M'

(ConinuedfromPage 1)
"They're ahead of us," Michigan
offensive line coach Jerry Hanlon
said. "We have to beat them. It's a
big game for us."
"(The game) has more meaning
than the ones in the past," said Doug
Mallory, who plays strong safety for
Michigan and is the son of Indiana's
head coach Bill Mallory. "We
definitely need a big win to keep us
in the race."
The game starts at 2:30 EST and
will not be televised.
THE HOOSIERS' only loss
came at Kentucky, 34-15, in the
second game of the season, but they
rebounded with a 20-17 win against
Missouri. They then pounded
Northwestern in its Big Ten opener
before shocking Ohio State, 31-10,
at Columbus and deflating
Minnesota at the Metrodome, 18-17.
The Hoosiers play at Iowa next week
and at Michigan State Nov. 14.
"I'm not beating a drum," Bill
Mallory said. "I know we've got a
long, tough season ahead. I can't say
I'm surprised. I just play it a game
at a time and hope to heck it fares
out pretty good."
The Wolverines, after losing to
Michigan State, 17-il, got on the
right track to the Rose Bowl last
week, crushing the Hawkeyes, 31-
10. The other contenders Michigan
still must face are Minnesota (2-1)
and Ohio State (2-1).
Despite undergoing lithotripter
treatment for two kidney stones
Monday, Michigan head coach Bo
Schembechler will be on the

sidelines.
"Bo's got them really going,"
Mallory said. "No question about it
they'll be the best team we've played
thus far."
IN MICHIGAN State and
Iowa, Schembechler's team has faced
a strong running attack and a strong
passing attack, respectively. Indiana
excels in both areas.
"They have the ingredients of a
very fine offense," Schembechler
said. "They have a fine running
back, a quarterback who could run
and pass, a fullback who can block,
an excellent receiver. They are one of
the best teams in the league. I think
they've proved that."
Indiana is one of the few
conference teams that has received
consistent play from its quarterback.
Redshirt sophomore Dave Schnell
leads the Big Ten in passing and is
ranked third nationally. The former
Parade Magazine high school All-
American has completed 90 of 144
passes for 1305 yards. He has
thrown 10 touchdown passes and run
for three others.
In last Friday's victory over
Minnesota, Schnell passed for 250
yards and rushed for two
touchdowns.
"Schnell is an extremely
improved football player," Hanlon
said. "He's taken command of their
offense, doesn't turn the ball over,
doesn't make a lot of mistakes. He
has a lot of poise for a young
quarterback."
T H O S E other offensive
"ingredients" that Schembechler
spoke about include running backs

Anthony Thompson, Tom Polce,
and Andre Powell; and wide receiver
Ernie Jones.
Jones is Indiana's version of
Notre Dame flanker Tim Brown. The
senior is ranked first in the Big Ten
in receiving and all-purpose running.
He is second in kickoff returns and
tied for second in scoring. He has
caught 38 passes and averages 18.4
yards per catch.
Thompson, a sophomore, is the
fourth-leading rusher in the
conference with 667 yards and an
111.2 yards per game average.
Because of injuries, he didn't start
last season until the team's eighth
game against Wisconsin. But in that
start, he rushed for a Big Ten
freshman record 207 yards on 39
carries. He ended last season with
806 yards despite starting less than
half of the team's games.
Senior fullbacks Polce and
Powell, both 6-1, 225-pounders, lead
the way for Thompson. The starter,
Polce, paces the team with 5.8 yards
per carry.
ON DEFENSE the Hoosiers
are toughest at the linebacker
position, where they have All-
American candidate Van Waiters and
Willie Bates. Waiters, a 6-4, 230-
pound senior, strikes themost fear
in Schembechler and offensive
coordinator Gary Moeller.
"There's no better player in the
league than Waiters at outside
linebacker," Schembechler said.
"He is a truly outstanding
athlete," said Moeller. "He's got
great range because of his size. We
know he's a dominant player and
we've got to mix it up on him."
Last week the Wolverine passing
offense finally performed as
expected. Demetrius Brown
completed 14 of19 passes for 190

yards against Iowa, and accounted for
all four of Michigan's touchdowns.
The redshirt sophomore was named
Big Ten player-of-the-week for his
performance. The Wolverines hope
to improve on last week's 3.3 yards
per rush.
Indiana's win last week was
sealed when Minnesota placekicker
Chip Lohmiller, who booted last-
play field goals that beat Indiana and
Michigan in 1986, missed a 44-yard,
go-ahead field goal with 1:32 left to
play.
Two weeks ago in Columbus, the
Hoosiers thoroughly outplayed the
Buckeyes. According to Mallory,
Indiana needs a performance similar
to the one it displayed against Ohio
State to beat Michigan.
"For us to be in there we have to
be at our best - precision football,"
Mallory said. "We can't screw up
much or it's going to cost us."
