M' keeps Cats in bag

By ADAM SCHEFTER
SPECIAL TO THE DAILY
EVANSTON - OK. Let's see.
Michigan moved the ball on the
ground all afternoon. Well, what did
you expect? Northwestern's rushing
defense ranks 103rd among 104
Division I teams.
"Michigan did not give up the big
play all day, either. What did you
expect? Michigan geared its game
plan on not letting Wildcats tailback
Byron Sanders get outside.
Michigan moved one game closer
to clinching a spot in the Rose Bowl
with a 52-7, tee-hee-hee, laugher of a
win against Northwestern on
Saturday. What did you expect?
Northwestern was still ecstatic about
last weekend's win over Wisconsin.
AND SCHEMBECHLER was
not happy with his squad's win, as
you might have expected.
"We didn't play well,"
Schembechler complained. "At
illegal man downfield cost us an 85-
yard touchdown play. We failed to
field a punt. Those are the kind of
things that will kill you when you
are battling tooth and nail for a title."
Northwestern coach Francis Peay
should have such problems. What
S'ehembechler was referring to was
actually an 84-yard would-be
touchdown pass to Greg McMurtry.
The play would have been the
longest pass in the history of
Wolverine football.
The field position on that series
was set up when John Kolesar
allowed a punt to sail over his head.
Northwestern downed the ball on the
16-yard line.
BUT WHAT did Schembechler
really have to complain about? There

was no upset - that is if you don't
include Peay's stomach.
Schembechler had tailback Tony
Boles, who scored three touchdowns
and gained 153 yards, making him
the 10th Wolverine to rush for over
1,000 yards in a season. The.
Wildcats' defense, which starts four
players who were playing high
school football at this time last year,
failed to keep the Michigan running
game in check.
Schembechler also had Kolesar,
who lived up to his big-play billing,
returning a punt 60 yards to the one-
yard line. Schembechler rewarded
Kolesar on Michigan's next offensive
series when quarterback Michael
Taylor rolled left and reversed the ball
to Kolesar, who ran into the end zone
untouched from 15 yards out.
"I was thinking on the way in,
well, at least I scored on this one,"
Kolesar said. "As long as we score, it
doesn't matter. If I bring the ball
down to the one-inch line and Tony
(Boles) brings it over, that's fine."
Schembechler also had his defense
at work again after issuing a warning
to them before the game. He told the
defense that Sanders would be the
first back to gain over 100 yards
against them this season, that
Northwestern would pile up more
than 150 yards rushing, and that the
Wildcats would score 14 points.
THEN AGAIN, Schembechler
also said that Northwestern was a
pretty good football team. Sanders
did get 106 yards, most of them
harmless, but Northwestern managed
only 107 total yards on the ground.
The Wildcats scored one touchdown,
a 10-yard pass from quarterback Greg
Bradshaw (no relation nor
resemblance to Terry) to wide

receiver Richard Buchanan.
"We just wanted to romance their
defense a little bit," Sanders said.
The Michigan defense definitely
was attracted. They proceeded to
spend the rest of the afternoon in the
company of Northwestern's
backfield. Mark Messner found it
most comfortable, recording 13
tackles, three for losses.
"I would just call him a great
football player," said Peay, not the
first coach to mumble those words.
"I saw him in some of the most
unpredictable places."
Unpredictable was what Schem-
bechler hoped to be with his offense
this past weekend. Schembechler
promised to unleash a more balanced
attack against the Wildcats. Yet,
when push came to shove, he was
much happier pushing and shoving
Northwestern's defense. Or lack of it.
Taylor attempted only 10 passes
and Demetrius Brown, who replaced
Taylor in the fourth quarter with
Michigan leading, 38-7, tried six
more, completing five.
Brown's performance, in fact, wasA
one of the few things that brought ar
smile to Schembechler's face after
the game.
"You know what I thought?"
Schembechler asked. "I thought
Demetrius Brown did a pretty good
job. That's what I thought. He led
the team to a couple of touchdowns."
Blue Banter
-Last weekend's star, fullback
Leroy Hoard, did not accompany the
team to Northwestern. Hoard was
suspended for at least one game for
missing two classes.
-When Schembechler entered the
locker room for the post-game
conference, all of the reporters were
already waiting for him. "How did
you guys get here so fast?"
Schembechler asked. The answer:
"Coach, we've been waiting here
since the second quarter.

Field hockey drops a pair

BY ANDREW GOTTESMAN
Michigan field hockey's home
season ended yesterday with a
scoreless, double-overtime tie with
Ohio State, capping a weekend that
also included a 2-0 loss to sixth-
ranked Iowa on Friday.
The Wolverines entered the
home stand with high hopes of an
upset over Iowa, which has been
nationally ranked all season.
Michigan improved upon its
performance from last weekend's 8-
0 drubbing in Iowa City, but was
unable get the upset.
Midway through the first half,
Michigan seemed to be keeping up

with the Hawkeyes, outshooting
them, 6-2.
Iowa junior forward and Big Ten
scoring leader Erica Richards could
not be kept down, though. She had
one goal in each half to account for
all the scoring.
"We had those opporunities,"
Michigan head coach Karen Collins
said. "(Iowa) will take whatever you
give them, and they were just a
little more accurate with their
shots."
The largest home crowd of the
season then looked on Sunday as
the Wolverines (6-8-3 overall, 1-4-1
in the Big Ten) suffered their second

straight shutout. Michigan failed
to score despite outshooting the
Buckeyes, 37-22. Michigan wasted;
14 penalty-corner opportunities.
"You can't have 37 shots and
not score," Collins said.
One bright spot for the
Wolverines was the continued
superb play of senior goalkeeper
Gillian Pieper. The Ann Arbor
native had 20 saves on Friday
against Iowa and followed up the
performance Sunday with 19 saves.
"This was definitely her best
weekend of the season, probably of
her career," Collins said.
