JUDGMENTS
BY MICHAEL SALINSKY
SPECIAL TO THE DAILY
MADISON - Did you see Tony
Boles go? Did you see Chris Horn
burst into the end zone? Of course
you did, but did you see the guys
who really made those plays -
those off-to-the-races runs -
leading Michigan to its 62-14
domination over Wisconsin on
Saturday?
Dohring. Dingman. Vitale.
Husar. Skrepenak. The names are
less familiar, but the players are not
less important than the high-profile
running backs.
They may even be more
important. "I just run the ball, do
what I have to. The offensive line
left the holes open for me," said
Michigan tailback Tony Boles after
his 179-yard performance.
Wisconsin head coach Don
Morton called it the most
dominating offensive line he has
ever had to face.
The Wolverines didn't out-
finesse Wisconsin. They didn't win
with strategy. They mashed 'em.
THEY DID THE MASH.
Just looking at the lineups, you
had to think something like this
could happen. Michigan's front five
averages 6-foot-4, 288 pounds. The
Badger's front four are measly in
comparison, averaging 6-4, 246.
"You got a 325-pound guy in
front of you, it makes it pretty easy
for the back," said Wisconsin

Michigan monsters
mash Badgers' defense

defensive end Don Davey. "They're
big strong guys just like Michigan
always has... these guys are just
monsters, you know."
THEY DID THE MONSTER
MASH.
Yeah, Wisconsin was an
embarrassing 0-3, but this was no
second- class defense. Every player
is a returning starter, and just last
week the Badgers held No. I Miami
to only one touchdown on offense.
"We were fired up and ready to
go after these guys," Davey said
after the game. "I guess (the first
few series) kind of took the wind
out of our sails."
If any play could take the wind
out of a team's sails, it was Boles'
55-yard touchdown run on
Michigan's first play from
scrimmage. Not to take anything
away from Boles, but any player in
the country, as well as most
coaches, parents and cheerleaders,
could have gained big yardage on
that play. Michigan senior guard
Mike Husar obliterated the closest
Wisconsin defender, allowing Boles
to accelerate untouched into
daylight. One juke by Boles and he
was gone.
"It seemed like they executed
everything they wanted," said
Wisconsin nose guard John
Banaszak. "They did it right. They
did it well."
Two series later, boom, another
gaping hole, Husar making the key

block on Badger linebacker Malvin
Hunter, and Chris Horn had a 21-
yard scoring run. Michigan had a
two-touchdown lead.
Husar, switched from guard to
tackle against Wake Forest to get 6-
7, 277-pound monster Tom
Dohring into the lineup, seemed to
be having little trouble with his
new position.
"We were shocked by the whole
thing," Davey said. "We found out
they could line up and just run right
at us."
THEY DID THE MASH. IT
WAS A GRIDIRON SMASH.
Nine minutes and 14 points
later, Michigan applied the capper,
Boles' 81-yard run. This time it was
Michigan's other guard, Dave
Dingman, a sophomore and
Wisconsin native, who made Swiss
cheese - or as they say in the dairy
state, Wisconsin Swiss cheese -
out of the right side of the Badger
defensive front.
Michigan head coach Bo
Schembechler had to be pleased.
Schembechler, who has joked about
losing games to "little guys" (read:
kickers) after 60 minutes of big
guys banging it out, saw a game
clearly decided in the trenches.
"I didn't think we would be able
to attack their defense like that,"
Schembechler said. "They were
extremely good against Miami."
Wisconsin's Banaszak helped
explain the difference. "(The

Wolverines) are much bigger (than
Miami). There's just no room for
error. Against (Miami) you might
have gotten away with a bad step
but still be able to overpower a
guy. (You can't) overpower a guy
50 to 100 pounds more than you."
Ah yes, the monsters.
THEY DO THE MASH. IT
GETS TOUCHDOWNS IN A
FLASH.
If there is a head monster, it's
got to be sophomore tackle Greg
Skrepenak. At 6-8, 322, Skrepenak
outweighs guys such as
Wisconsin's Davey by 80 pounds.
"He's a monster," Davey said.
"He's not real fast, but for their
kind of offense, where they line up
and actually run the ball right at
you, I guess he's perfect."
Center John Vitale, garnering
All-American support, doesn't make'
those eye-catching blocks, but his
bottling up of the middle is what
made the big holes possible in the
first place.
"We're just starting to learn to
play together, and we get better
every week," Skrepenak said.
Yeah, the Michigan backfield isa
deep and talented. But where would
they be without the monsters? So{
come on fans, get out those
Halloween masks early and show
the monsters you appreciate their
efforts.
LET'S DO THE MASH. THE
MICHIGAN MONSTER MASH.

M' spikers fall
to 0-4 in Big Ten

BY DAVID HYMAN
Michigan volleyball coach Joyce
Davis needed only a few words to
describe her feelings after her team
lost its match against Indiana Friday
night.
"We just stopped playing. That
pretty much speaks for Friday's
match," Davis said.
The Wolverines went on to lose
again Saturday night to Ohio State,
leaving Michigan 0-4 in the Big Ten
and 10-7 overall.
INDIANA defeated Michigan in
three straight games, 15-9,15-4,16-
14. The Wolverines committed many
errors in losing the first two games,
but took a 12-0 lead in the third
game. Indiana came back, though, to
win the game and match.
After Michigan's lackluster
performance Friday, Davis set two
goals for Saturday's match against
Ohio State. "We need to improve our
team play and our team defense,"
Davis said. "We did not play well as
a team, especially defensively, on
Friday, and we need to improve if we
expect to perform better."
Michigan did improve Saturday
night, but not enough to beat the
Buckeyes. "We played better as a
team (Saturday). We made
adjustments, but we didn't play too
well," Davis said.
The Wolverines were plagued by

serving errors throughout the
weekend. They committed ten against
Indiana and eight against Ohio State.
Giving up the serve so many times
helped to sink the Wolverines,
because in volleyball you can only
score when your team is serving.
OHIO STATE quickly took a
10-1 lead in the first game Saturday,
then held off a Wolverine rally to
win, 15-11.
The Buckeyes served poorly
throughout the match, committing
10 service errors, but the Wolverines
were unable to hit many winning
shots of their own.
When the Wolverines got the serve
back, they were unable to convert,
and Ohio State went on to win the
last two games, 15-11, 15-9.
"(The Wolverines) seem to be
shell-shocked (on defense)," Davis
said. "We need to bring the ball up
on defense with ball control. That
just wasn't there."
Good ball control is a result of
good team passing, which must
involve everyone on the team. "We
need to practice the two fundamentals
-- serving and passing," Davis said.
"It's important for us to play as a
team."
The loss of captain Marie Ann
Davidson has not helped the situation
but Davis said, "No one individual
can win or lose the game."

Olympics
close down
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -
The 1988 Summer Olympics, kept
free of terrorism but tainted by drug
scandals, closed Sunday with the
pealing of a medieval bell to
symbolize the sorrow of parting.
The 16-day event, conducted under
extraordinary security, wrapped up
with the Soviet Union winning the
lion's share of the 237 medal events.
The United States finished third in
medals.
At least 1 billion people watched
the Olympics via a 115-nation
worldwide hookup.
The Seoul Games had the greatest
number of athletes (9,633) the most
countries, the most gold medals and
the most venues (34) of any modern
Olympics.

DETROIT (AP) - Darrell
Evans, in perhaps his final at-bat in
a Detroit uniform, made it a game-
winner Sunday.
Pat Sheridan tripled in the 11th
inning and scored the winning run
on Evans' single as the Tigers beat
the New York Yankees, 4-3,
completing a sweep of their three-
game series.
"I was thinking in the dugout that
this might be it for me," Evans said.

STOP STUDYIN'

"It was nice that it was important.
We finished second and that's
something. It takes away some of
the sting of not winning our
division."
The Tigers finished the season
88-74, one game behind the first-
place Boston Red Sox' in the
AmericanwLeague East. The
Yankees, who got off to a 32-15
start, ended up 85-76.
