Jio pleased despite injuries

Daily Hockey Writer
In any contest of sport it takes more than just raw
rilent to win. Coaches talk of intangibles like
experience, spirit, emotion and attitude - and it was
tlese intangibles that led the Michigan hockey team to
a weekend sweep of Illinois-Chicago.
These were the Flames first home games of the
sason after a humiliating series against Ohio State the
previous week. The Wolverines knew that Illinois-
Chicago was looking for vindication.
"They (UIC) were determined going in," Michigan
coach Red Berenson said. "This was their first home
game after Ohio State. We had to stifle them and we
played with a lot of aggressiveness."
The Wolverines stifled the Flames quickly Friday
night, scoring three first-period goals over a span of 46
seconds en route to a 9-4 victory. After Michigan's
first-period flurry the Flames attitude was somewhat
questionable.
"They just stopped playing defense. They didn't
show anything out there," said senior center Tim
Helber.
Illinois-Chicago just gave up in the second period.
Michigan had scored five goals in the first and did just
about anything they wanted. The Wolverines made two-
line passes between defenders and other assorted
offensive shows, moves that normally don't have an
exceptional success rate in the CCHA.
Frustration and anger were apparent in the play of
the Flames as they racked up 11 penalties with cheap
shots in the last two periods and started numerous fights
on the ice.
"They were just real frustrated about the way they
were playing and their coach was probably giving them
a lot of crap about it," said junior rightwinger Kent
rothers, a victim of two vicious trips, one of which
resulted in a multi-player fight.
The Wolverines played so well that they beat the
Flames physically, causing Illinois-Chicago to beat
themselves mentally and taking them totally out of a
game that was only 5-2 after the first period.
The strange thing about those intangibles, however,
is that they tend to work against you. After that first

game, the Michigan squad was elated but could have
become complacent.
Every coach's nightmare comes after a big victory
that looked easy: his team becomes complacent and
doesn't give its best.
This did not happen for Michigan Saturday night. In
the past Michigan might have let up and allowed the
Flames to earn a split, but this year's Wolverines were
true to the test.
The defense shined as Michigan allowed only four
shots on goal in the first period and senior goalie
Warren Sharples had a 27 save shutout. Defensemen
Alex Roberts and Doug Evans were at the top of their
game and knew what to expect from their opponents.
"We really f;I..
started to play team
defense. We held
them down the first
period and we got
the game started,"
Roberts said.J
"They (UIC) had to
prove something'
tonight and they{
came out flying."
Berenson knew
that too but said he
didn't need to fire
up the team with
any speeches. "No, Sharples
we knew we'd be
in for a battle, not too many teams are going to be
blown out twice at home."
The Wolverines came to play in that second game,
putting the team on an emotional high with its 3-0-1
start. This emotion is apparent in the locker room with
every player constantly smiling.
Even the stern Berenson cracked a grin as the whole
bench hugged each other after defenseman Todd
Copeland scored the winning goal with two-and-a-half
minutes to go in the game.
Sophomore leftwinger Denny Felsner speaks of the
team's confidence: "We really believe in ourselves, this
is the year."

As the waitress brought
Michigan coach Bo Schembechler
his beef soup at yesterday's press
luncheon, the fifth winningest
college football coach of all time
smiled and made that 'yummy'
sound.
"Mmmm. That looks good," he
said hungrily.
Just a few moments later,
Schembechler used almost the same
words to describe his rejuvinated
football offense.
"(Michael Taylor) has five years
of experience and has been a starter
for the last three. He knows what
he's doing and runs the (offense)
well," Schembechler said. "Our
backs are pretty decent. And they're
blocking better for each other.
"We're getting better, we have a
good attitude and we're looking
forward to the last five weeks of the
(Big Ten) season," he said.
Gearing up for the last five Big
Ten games, Schembechler would
like to have some key injured
personnel back in the fold so the last
few games could be winning ones
for the Wolverines.

Fullback Jarod Bunch, who has
been out since the Notre Dame game
with a knee injury, is ready and eager
to start practicing again.
"He's excited about getting
back," Schembechler said. "He's like
a caged lion. I don't know how ready
he'll be. He could be ready in a
week."
While Schembechler doesn't
doubt that Bunch will be ready
physically, he expects the fullback
to be slightly sluggish due to his
time away from the game.
Schembechler felt the same way
about quarterback Michael Taylor,
but the fifth-year senior proved him
wrong last Saturday against Iowa.
Playing in his first full game
since last year's contest against
Indiana, Taylor threw two
touchdown passes and rushed for
another.
"I thought he was pretty smooth.
He played better than I expected for
that game," Schembechler said. "I
thought he'd be a little rusty."
J.J. Grant, who injured his knee
in the waning moments of the
Michigan State game, is not only
rusty but is also out for the Indiana
game and the entire Wolverine

picture for a while.
"I'd like to have J.J. Grant back;
he adds something to the defense,":
Schembechler said. "He adds:
something leadership wise. It's;
important to get him back."
Fellow linebacker Alex Marshall,
who suffered a pinched nerve against
Iowa, is doubtful according to
Schembechler. Also doubtful against
Indiana will be running back Allen:
Jefferson, who did not make the trip:
to Iowa City due to a sprained foot.
Considering all these injuries,
Schembechler seemed quite pleased,.
with his team's record at this point
in the season.
"Look at it this way. Against,:
Notre Dame, they ran two kickoffs
back against us, we lost our,.
quarterback, we lost our fullback and
we had UCLA on the road staring at
us," Schembechler said.
"They should have beat us really.
Then we went out there and win it
and we were plodding along, trying=
to get better.
"We've done all that and we're
still unbeaten in the conference.
We're getting better, gaining
confidence."
