Battle plans include aerial show

How much of a chance do you really think
Northwestern (1-5-1) has of beating Michigan (4-
2-1) this Saturday (2:05 p.m Dyche Stadium)?
About as much chance as Michael Jackson
does of growing a moustache?
According to Michigan coach Bo
Schembechler, football games are won on the
ground. Michigan ranks second in the Big Ten in
rushing offense, while Northwestern is last in
rushing defense.
About as much chance as Detroit Lions head
coach Darryl Rogers has of being named NFL
NORTHWESTERN only managed to ac-
cumulate 21 yards on the ground against Duke.
They doubled that amount against Michigan
State and ran for only a little bit more against
About as much chance as Schembechler
placing Northwestern on the level they deserve.
"One thing about Northwestern is they always
play hard," Schembechler said. "They don't get
down very easily. They beat Illinois last year."
Coach. Uhh, coach. Illinois' record last year
was 3-7-1.
"Sanders is a very fine back, the kind of guy
who if he was playing at Indiana or Michigan
State, you'd be raving about," said Schembechler
in reference to Northwestern's leading rusher,
tailback Byron Sanders.
"And (Greg) Bradshaw is a good quarterback.
He's solid. And (Richard) Buchanan, the wide
receiver, is the best athlete on their team. They
have a new junior college center (Kurt Minko).

Their free safety (Dwight James) is an excellent
COACH. Uhh, coach. Their only win this
year was last weekend against Wisconsin, 35-14.
And the 21-point win was Northwestern's largest
margin of victory over a Big Ten team since the
Wildcats defeated Michigan State, 42-21, in
'Someone asked me the other day
what I thought about Michigan
coming to town. I said, 'it's good
news and bad news. The bad news
is it's a typical Michigan football
team. The good news is that they'll
only be here for 60 minutes.'
- Northwestern coach
Francis Peay
"If they scored 35 points, then I'm a nervous
wreck," Schembechler said.
Just once, it would be nice to hear
Schembechler say this: "We got a pushover this
weekend. We should run the ball on them all day
long. I would be able to run through the holes
the offensive line is going to open.
"The defense should stifle them. There's no
excuse, no excuse, for them to score one point
on us. They're going to be so sore after my men

get through with them that they won't be able to'
go trick or treatin'. We're going to mutilate them
together as a team. A team, a team, a team."
LISTEN to Francis Peay, Northwestern's
coach who views the game with a bit more,
realism: "Someone asked me the other day what Io
thought about Michigan coming to town. I said,!
'it's good news and bad news. The bad news is.
it's a typical Michigan football team. The good
news is that they'll only be here for 60 minutes."
True, Michigan has some injuries. Cornerbacks
David Arnold is out with a pulled hamstring;
linebacker John Milligan is doubtful with a
sprained ankle; safety Vada Murray has a strained:
knee; cornerback David Key is still a little:
shaken up from last weekend's romp.
Peay, however, feels this won't be a big
advantage for his team. "The people who replace;
those injured players seem to play right up to
that level," Peay said. "I think there is such a
thing at Michigan as a certain level of
performance and it doesn't matter whose in there,
they maintain that level."
One thing Schembechler promises to do is go
with a more balanced attack. Last year against the
Wildcats, quarterback Michael Taylor threw only
five passes, completing one for three yards. Look
for Michigan to throw the ball at least 20 times.
"With this ball club, I'd be foolish not to
throw to have balance," Schembechler said. "I
like to throw. I believe we can be a good passing
team. 16 passes against Indiana was not enough.
If we go to Northwestern and have success
running, I'm not going to stay that way."

Michigan quarterback Michael Taylor prepares to pass, which
is something coach Bo Schembechler says he will do more of
in tomorrow's contest at Northwestern.

Cross country teams run for
Big Ten Championships




It could be anyone's race tom-
orrow at the men's and women's Big
Ten Championships in Iowa City,
Iowa. Both the men's and women's
team could feasibly capture one of
the top three spots at the meet.
Michigan women's cross country
team was only ranked fifth in the Big
Ten this year, but it is doubtful that
they will finish fifth. According to
women's cross country coach Sue
Foster, "We expect, realistically to
place between third and fifth.
Hopefully, we'll get third."
There will be stiff competition for
the No. 2 spot at the meet, as four
schools are capable of finishing that
high. Indiana, Iowa, and Minnesota,

who are all ranked and unranked
Michigan will battle it out for second
WHILE the other three schools
are ranked, Foster doesn't see this as
a handicap. "Although we are not
ranked, we should be able to compete
The men's cross country team is
also expected to have a strong
showing at the meet. Although Wis-
consin is favored to win the men's
meet, Michigan will be a strong con-
tender for second place.
"We could finish anywhere from
second .to fourth," said head coach
Ron Warhurst. "Michigan State,
Indiana, Iowa, and Michigan will all
be looking to finish second."

The men's team will have seven
runners representing them in Iowa
City this weekend. Brad Barquist and
John Scherer are expected to place the
highest for Michigan. Last year,
Scherer placed ninth and proceeded to
finish second in the NCAA cham-
The women's team will also be
well represented by their seven
runners. Leading the team will be
junior Mindy Rowand, who is
predicted to finish in the top five.
Last year, Rowand placed eighth.
"It'd be really sweet if I could get
third or fourth," said Rowand. "If I
keep my head, I should do alright."
