For the first time in the four sea-
sons that Michigan head coach Red
Berenson has been at the helm, it
wouldn't be an "upset" if the
Wolverines advanced beyond the first
round of the Central Collegiate
Hockey Association playoffs.
The Wolverines (21-17, 17-15 in
the CCHA), are confident that they
could perform such a feat this week-
end in a best two-of-three series at
Western Michigan (20-14-3, 17-12-
The winner will advance to the
CCHA semifinal round at Joe Louis
Arena March 11th and 12th.
As a result of finishing in fifth
place in the CCHA, three points be-
hind the fourth-place Broncos,
Michigan will have to play their
tune in Kalamazoo.
ALTHOUGH home ice advan-
tage was their main goal for the sea-
son, the Wolverines were not wor-
ried about hitting the road.
"It's not something that concerns
us," said goalie Warren Sharples. "In
the second half of the season, we had
7more success on the road, so it's not
going to be a factor."
Indeed, the Wolverines have won
:four of their last five road games,
and have a 10-10 overall road record.
"Our road record speaks for itself,"
said Berenson. "We have a lot of
confidence on the road and we know
.we can win (at Lawson Arena.)"
"We know we can go into any
'rink and beat them," added senior
'right wing Brad McCaughey. "None
of us feel any pressure because we're
going into someone else's rink,
where they've got the pressure."
Although playing at Lawson
Arena doesn't concern them, the
Wolverines do have to worry about
the Broncos hard-charging line of

...a cut above the rest
Upon entering the Michigan locker room after practice on
Wednesday, I encountered something very strange. No longer could I
tell the players apart.
About half the team wore crew cuts, while most of the rest had all
sorts of weird mohawks.
I was equally shocked with their attitude. With the playoffs in just
two days, I expected a more serious, but confident locker room. The
Wolverines were confident, but certainly not serious.
"Western may have the home-ice advantage, but with haircuts like
these, we'll scare the shit out of them," said center Mike Moes.
UNABLE to identify any of the players, I looked around for
somebody with some hair. That's when I encountered goalie Warren
Sharples, one of seven Wolverines electing not to get scalped.
"Ah", I thought to myself, at least there's somebody normal
around here. Then I thought to myself, "Boy, if I think Sharples is
normal, then this team really has problems."
"I'm just too cool for this," insisted Sharples.
"No, he just knows that he's ugly enough without one of those
haircuts," retorted teammate Bryan Deasley.
"It's for team unity," said one Wolverine who I could not identify.
"It's more like team insanity," responded Sharples.
Confused, I looked for one of the seniors to help put this all into
At first, I tried to find Billy Powers or Joe Lockwood. They
always struck me as the rational type. But either they weren't around,
or I just couldn't recognize them.
FINALLY, I stumbled across Brad McCaughey, or so I thought.
It turned out, however, to be somebody else.
After making a fool of myself, I found the real Brad McCaughey,
who tried to clear things up for me.
"My freshman year we cut our hair for the playoffs. Then this year
we talked about starting to let the facial growth go, and they started
doing that and then they started doing haircuts and everybody jumped
in and did them," he said.
At this point, I figured "Let me ask Red about all of this
And head coach Berenson offered the most feasible explanation:
"It's something players have done each year for team spirit and
morale. But they're not my choice, believe me.. I like the brush cuts
and crew cuts, but I'm not much for mohawks or tails."
Fortunately for me, they'll be wearing their uniforms on Friday,
and then I can look at some names, thank you.

Michigan's Warren Sharples, who coach Red Berenson says "is playing the best hockey of his career," will be
in goal tonight with a full head of hair.
Paul Polillo, Ron Hoover, and Tom
POLILLO finished the regular
season as the CCHA leader in over-
all scoring from his center position
with 75 points. Hoover and Auge
combined for 85 more (57 by
Hoover), giving the Broncos one of
the most potent offensive lines in
"They have some good offensive
players," said Berenson. "We'll have
to play well defensively and shut
The two teams, which split their
season series, two games apiece, ap-
pear evenly matched. Berenson,
however, feels his team has an ad-
vantage in the net, where Sharples
(3.94 goals against average) is at the
top of his game.
In contrast to Sharples, Bronco
goalie Billy Horn has been plagued
by inconsistency throughout the
season. "Billy Horn has struggled
more this year than in previous
years," said Berenson. "On the other
hand, we feel very confident that
Warren Sharples is playing the best
hockey of his career."
BERENSON also expects big
games from his seniors. "They have
the experience so they'll play with a
lot of heart and a lot of hustle," he
McCaughey, however, is one
such senior who does not feel any
added stress. "I don't feel any pres-
sure," said McCaughey. "I know that
I'll have to show up and score," he
said. "So if I show up, I know I'll
do my job."
The Wolverines are also expect-
ing to get a lift from the return of
captain Todd Brost, who missed the
last five of the regular season with a
"Brost will make a big difference
to our team," said Berenson. "He's
our captain, and he's a leader who
hustles and plays with a lot of pride.
His presence has to make us a better

Hudson have legitimate opportuni-
ties in the 800 meter run.
"We're going with about one-
half (of the squad) freshmen, which
will limit what we are able to do,"
said coach Jack Harvey.
