Head coach Bill Frieder had said he was going
to juggle the starting lineup. So it was no sur-
prise when the Michigan team formed a line to
greet the starters and Steve Stoyko was seated on
the bench instead of standing in his usual posi-
Stoyko's name was called out by the P.A.
announcer and the crowd immediately showed its
approval of Frieder's decision.
AND STOYKO didn't disappoint his loyal
following in his second career start, his first
coming against Northern Michigan last season.
He went out in the first four-and-one-half min-
utes and scored four points to help the Wolver-
ines open a 17-4 lead.
"Stoyko's done a great job here for four
years," Frieder said after the Wolverines 105-67
victory over Northwestern. "I think he could have
played somewhere. He came in with that Tarpley
bunch and was behind them. Then (Glen) Rice

te Stoyko

came, so he was always third team. But he al-
ways gives you a great effort."
That great effort includes an aggressive brand
of basketball from the Bay Village, Ohio, native.
Nowhere was that zealous play more evident than
on Stoyko's first two points of the evening, both
foul shots.
GARY GRANT rifled a pass inside to Rice,
who was standing in the lane. Stoyko was there
and his instincts took over. He grabbed the ball
out of an astonished Rice's hands and drew the
"I saw that it was Stoyko, so I just let the
ball go," Rice said. "I was hoping he could get
the ball in the basket."
Stoyko said, "My natural reaction was to just
go after the ball. I didn't realize that Glen was
behind me. But I got fouled, went to the line, and
that was nice."
THE STARTING assignment was also
nice. "I was real excited, but I had to stay in

It's doubtful that Stoyko will be called on so
early this Saturday in West Lafayette when
Michigan goes head-to-head with Purdue, but it
is likely Stoyko will be seeing more time play-
ing instead of watching.
"I want guys executing out there and I know
he's going to do that," Frieder said. "I think
we're going to utilize him a little more the rest
of the season and maybe in the tournament be-
cause I think he can help us with spot perfor-
Stoyko never did manage to score after his
second basket, coming off a baseline spin, but
the crowd had seen what they wanted - Stoyko
being used in the first five minutes of the game
instead of the last five minutes.

Fleming added that no one ever
planned on having the same person
simultaneously serve as athletic di-
rector and head football coach.
Some alumni feel Schembechler
should have been allowed to hold
both jobs and then decide for himself
whether it was too much for one
person to handle.
"After all, Bo has become a real
integral part of Michigan. They
don't have to put conditions on Bo
as athletic director. The last thing
that man would do is to harm the

University," said alum Gil Currie,
who has been in constant contact
with members of the athletic de-
partment. "(The regents) are going to
do a tremendous disservice to the
University if they drop their first

Dick Leach, father of former
Wolverine quarterback Rick Leach,
added, "Bo didn't seek the job, they
sought him. Under these circum-
stances, they shouldn't put these re-

and he would know if the job be-
came too big."
Leach said several other promi-
nent alumni had called him to
"express their displeasure" and con-
template what action to take next.
Assistant Athletic Director Will
Perry summed up the frustration
athletic department personnel are
feeling since their candidate
(Schembechler) will not be the new
athletic director.
"I just hope that they choose
someone who knows what they are
doing," Perry said.

Detroit Tigers'
acts coldly to
sports writer

Troubled Detroit Tigers relief pitcher
Willie Hernandez dumped ice water
on a sport writer's head Wednesday,
accusing the writer of turning Tiger
fans against him.
Detroit Free Press columnist
Mitch Albom was sitting in the
Tiger spring-training clubhouse
talking with pitcher Frank Tanana
when the incident occurred.
Hernandez said latter he felt Albom
was to blame for the almost brutal

way fans at Tiger Stadium boo him.
Hernandez claimed Albom called him
a crybaby in a column last year.
Hernandez saved 32 games in the
1984 season when the Tigers won
the World Series and Hernandez was
named the American League's Most
'Valuable Player. He saved 30 games
in 1985, but slipped badly the past.

The Tigers tried unsuccessfully
to trade Hernandez last winter.
