Spartan green faded
with Perles' gameplan
EAST LANSING - The fall colors beemed brightly
throughout the Michigan State campus on Saturday.
Looking around the Spartan athletic facilities, one could
seethe blooming red, the yellow, and all the fading green.
About the only thing brighter than the beautiful
Indian Summer sun was the smile running across the
face of Bo Schembechler,
The play calling from the Michigan bench made the
Michigan State victory extra pleasing. However, Bo
could not look bad when compared with the ineptitude on
the opposite sideline. While Bo directed his ground
attack, George Perles' team sputtered.
"We moved around a little bit and
A dam ran from some different formations,"
B Schembechler said. "We didn't do
ens on anything that was revolutionary, just
things that we hadn't been doing."
Spartan defensive end Travis
Davis added: "In the first half
(Michigan) came out in some
formations that we haven't seen or
practiced for. We went to the
sidelines and the coaches told us
* what to do. We changed defenses a
little bit."
g Michigan State committed
y several key errors in the game, yet
never let Michigan run away to
victory.
"It was a tough game to lose," Perles said. "I'
certainly couldn't go into the locker room and have
anything negative to say, any scolding."
That's true George, your players don't deserve any
tounge-lashings for your play lousy calling.
The superior coaching showed on the games two
crucial fourth down calls. When Bo had to ram in, he

EAST LANSING - After a
week of football coaches imitating
army generals by imposing martial
law on players, and round-the-clock
vigilante groups protecting their
schools' traditions, everything re-
turned to normal Saturday, as Michi-
gan knocked off arch-rival Michigan
State for the eighth time this decade.
The Wolverine's 10-7 triumph
was closer than the seven points
oddsmakers predicted, but Michigan
won't complain.
"Closeness is only for horse-
shoes," an elated Bo Schembechler
pronounced after the game. "When
you lose, you lose.... The best team
won. What more can you say."
For starters, the Michigan offense
refused to be intimidated by a
highly-regarded Spartan defense. The
Wolverines rediscovered their ground
IER1 game, which had been all but non-
NEDaiy existent in recent weeks, in jumping
to a quick lead.
At one point, Michigan (4-1, 2-

"We didn't play well," said Miami coach
George Gwozdecky. "The reason they didn't is
because of Mark Michaud."
The Redskins finally broke through
against Sharples to tie the score at the 7:17
mark of the third period when Saban took a
pass from Ken House and drilled a shot into
the upper left corner of the goal.
And while the Wolverines disintegrated
offensively, Sharples had to stand even taller.
But at the 13:30 mark, Luik tipped a Scott

OXFORD, OH - Despite two third
period collapses, the Michigan hockey team
returned from a weekend series against Miami
(OH) with a 2-2 tie Friday and a 7-4 win
Saturday behind four Denny Felsner goals and
one assist.
"We've got to be a better third period
team," Michigan coach Red Berenson said.
"That's where you win and lose games."
Michigan (1-0-1 in the CCHA) entered the

last period Friday night ahead, 1-0, but failed
to put the Redskins (0-1-1) away as Joey
Saban and Scott Luik each scored to give
Miami a 2-1 lead. The Wolverines then
mounted a comeback of their own, as Felsner
notched his second goal of the night with
only two and a half minutes remaining to tie
the score.
The first two periods had been dominated
by a battle between Michigan goalie Warren
Sharples and Miami's Mark Michaud.
After Michigan took an early lead when

Rob Brown and Dan Stiver fed Felsner for his
first goal four minutes into the game, both
teams' offenses struggled for 43 minutes
against their own missed opportunities and
the goaltending of Sharples and Michaud.
Michaud finished, with 39 saves in
regulation and had another seven in overtime
for a total of 46. Sharples had 25 for the
game.
"Mark had a great game last night,"
Sharples said. "He made a lot of spectacular
saves and that really lifts a team."

Almost every Michigan. resident
has heard of football coach/athletic
director Bo Schembechler. But most
people have never heard of Bruce
Madej (pronounced Mah -tee) despite
being arguably "the most visible
person" in the Michigan athletic
department.
But instead of leading a team on
the field or prowling the sideline
with a towel on his shoulder, Madej
works behind the scenes as the
Michigan Sports Information
Director. Last year, he managed only
one day off (including weekends)
between Labor Day and
Thanksgiving.
4"I neeever wanted to do this.
Period," Madej said after perusing
through a large stack of phone
messages.
But Madej was ready for a change
in 1982 when Michigan called and
asked him to take the SID job. Since
then, Madej has stopped having to
write, stuff, and mail each press
release himself.
"At this point I'm the
promotions director and I'm the SID.
That's why I'm an assistant athletic
director because I've got two titles."
Assistant SID Mike Murray, who
was a student intern during Madej's
days as an assistant, sees the
promotion as a big boost.
"They've given him a big vote of
confidence upstairs by giving him
assistant athletic director
responsibilities," Murray said. "He

noted Madej's background as the
source of his success.
Madej wrote for the Ypsilanti
Press and Ann Arbor News, worked
in television and radio, and handled
public relations for the American
Powerboat Racing Association
before rejoining the athletic
department.
"It's a hard job to do right
because a lot of things are on
deadline," Perry said. "He's a good
man for the job because of all his
experiences."
Those who work with Madej
described a side of him not often
seen by outsiders.
"He's a perfectionist," said
student intern Brian Movalson. "He
likes things to run smoothly and
when they don't, his temper shows."
But Murray said the job would be
boring without these "Brucisms."
"I wouldn't say there's any
'Wrath of Bruce', but there are
certain Brucisms we enjoy down
here. When things are a little crazy,
you can always count on Bruce to
lose it for a minute or two. He'll
continue repeating the same phrase
until he's tired of saying it.
"We sort of sit around and wait
for him to explode. I'm sure he
thinks it creates tension in the
office. But that's not the way it is
when Bruce gets mad. He's an
animated kind of guy."

Spadafore said people's initial

EVANSTON - "We were bad."
That statement by coach Joyce
Davis summed up the Michigan'
women's volleyball weekend.
The Wolverines, 5-10 overall
and 0-7 in the Big Ten, first lost to
Wisconsin, 15-4, 15-7, 15-2,'
Friday night in Madison, and then
were shut down in Illinois by
Northwestern 15-6, 15-7, 18-16
Saturday.
The Michigan defense was non-
existent in Wisconsin, allowing the
Badgers Lisa Boyd and Susan
Wohlford to have an offensive field
day. Boyd hit .500 in the match and
finished with 5 kills. Wohlford led
the team with 9 kills and hit .444
herself.
"We just didn't have any
defense," Davis said. "We made
mistakes but the difference was that
we weren't able to bring the ball up
on defense, thus we weren't able to
generate any offense off our
transition game."
Kim Clover was the only
Wolverine bright spot in the match.
Clover led the team with a .467
hitting percentage and pounded 9
kills over the net.
Against Northwestern, Davis
toyed with the line-up throughout
the match. Reserves Jennifer
Paulson and Heather Wells were
frequently used for backcourt
purposes. First-year players

Michigan started the first and
third games in early 7-0 holes. The
Wolverine's passes were lifeless,
and the team reacted slowly on
defense, especially on serves.
Northwestern managed an incredible
22 service aces.
"There have been times when
we've had 22 serving errors," said
Northwestern coach Jerry Angle.
"So this was just one of those
games where we worked all week
on a lot of tough serving and it paid
off."
Michigan came alive midway

through the third and final match.
Team leaders Karen Marshall, Julia
Sturm and Autumn Collins took
charge leading the comeback. The
Wolverines executed crisp passes
and added direction to their spikes.
As the game went on the team
seemed to gain confidence, and their
potential shined through. But
Michigan's effort was too little too
late.
"I think they have some nice
athletes," Angle said. "I felt for the
third game the chemistry for them
came together, but overall I think
the chemistry of Michigan still
needs to be learned."
