The Best in Sports

If the Wolverines have one
glaring question mark this season, is
has to be the kicking game, where
they have to find replacements for
kicker/punter Mike Gillette.
"If I could have one guy back
from last year's squad, it would be
Mike Gillette," Michigan coach Bo
Schembechler said. "I'm not overly
concerned about the place-kicking,
but the punting is where we have
J.D. Carlson appears to be a leg
up on senior Gulam Kahn in the
battle for the kicking chores, but a
clear choice has not emerged. Kahn's
strength is his accuracy, while
Carlson has more strength in his leg.
"I'm not sure if it's a case of
who's the worst, but who's the
best," assistant head coach Gary
Moeller said. "We have been pleased

One rule change which may affect
the Wolverine kickers involves the
loss of the tee. Previously, kickers
could kick from a tee on field goal
and extra-point attempts. Now, they
can only use a tee on kickoffs, and
Schembechler predicts many more
kicks will be blocked as a result
because the ball will not ascend as
rapidly as it previously did.
He said last week that the
Michigan kickers have adjusted well
to the change.
The other question, which
remains murkier, is who will be
doing the Wolverines' punting.
The two candidates are frosh Chris
Stapleton and redshirt frosh Eddie
"The punting is improving a
little, but I'm not ready to decide,"
Schembechler said. "We need to punt
them some more under pressure."
One worry both the coaching staff
and Stapleton have is the
intimidation factor: namely punting
in pressure situations with over
100,000 people sitting in the stands.
"I'm a little nervous," Stapleton
admitted on media day. "The thought
of starting is beyond anything I

of fall practice, that he intended to

If Michigan decides to air it out, Taylor has
