Blue defense


win against Hoosiers

by Richard Eisen
Daily Football Writer
Most everything went according to plan for the
Wolverines' homecoming battle against the Indiana
Hoosiers Saturday:
-There were hardly any marshmallow throwers in
the stands as the Michigan administration plans to
possibly ban oxygen for the Wolverines' next stadium
-Still nobody knows the lyrics of the alma mater
except for the word "Hail!"
-Michigan won its 21st consecutive homecoming
game, destroying Indiana with a powerful offense and a
stingy defense, 38-10.
The only thing that didn't go according to plan was
the Michigan defense's performance against Heisman
Trophy candidate Anthony Thompson: it was better
than expected.
"He's an exceptionally fine (tail)back," Michigan
coach Bo Schembechler said. "I told (the defense) if we
held him to four yards a carry, we would win the
Michigan's defense, which still has not allowed any
running back to rush for more than 100 yards against
them this season, held Thompson to only 3.0 yards
per carry. He eventually tied the record for NCAA
career rushing touchdowns by scoring one off the
Wolverines' second string players early in the fourth
"Not even the Heisman Trophy could have run
through our defense today," safety Tripp Welborne
Throughout the afternoon, Thompson rarely saw
the light at the other end of the line of scrimmage,
gaining only 90 yards on the ground. Before Saturday's
contest, with the media hyping the heck out of him for
the Heisman, Thompson had averaged 160.8 rushing
yards a game.
"Their defense is a combination of quickness with
great defensive backs," Thompson said. "They didn't
confuse me but they slid off their blocks better than
we expected."
However, on Indiana's first drive of the game it
seemed as if Thompson would have his way with
Michigan's tough rushing defense. The drive

Thompson had already gained 32 yards on six carries.
"When you start a game against a great cut runner,
you've got to get in the flow of the game and get to
know what he's doing," Schembechler said.
Once the defense got in the flow of things,
Thompson got the opportunity to meet nearly every
Michigan defender up close and personally.
"Everybody kind of gang tackled him," Michigan
defensive lineman Mike Teeter said. "We wanted to
stop him. Anytime you get a back like Thompson
coming into the stadium, it motivates the defense.
"It motivates us because it's our house and we
don't like anybody running in our house," Teeter said.
However, many Wolverines ran rampantly across

Ironic indeed! Boles
outshines Thompson
It was a situation you could have pictured oldtime,
curmudgeon NBC baseball announcer Vin Scully
"Isn't it ironic," Scully might say, "that on a day
where Heisman Trophy candidate Anthony Thompson
was supposed to be the star, here comes Tony Boles
and a 91-yard touchdown gallop."
"The Indiana Hoosiers, underdogs like Odysseus in
his travails, yet sporting a legitimate Herculean force
in running back Thompson, travelled to Ann Arbor to
challenge the favored Michigan Wolverines.
"Thompson needed merely two touchdowns to
break the all-time NCAA touchdown record held by the
legendary Glenn Davis from Army and Tony Dorsett
from Pittsburgh. But while Thompson had been
literally running circles around the rest of the Hoosier
opponents, he was shut down by the vaunted
Wolverine defense. See SCHRAGER, page 5


Michigan tailback Tony Boles (42) attempts to break through a hole against Indiana Saturday. Boles rushed for
156 yards on 14 carries. His fifth 150-plus yard performance earned him sixth place on the all-time Michigan list
for such games. Wolverine backs as a whole rushed for 356 yards on the day, averaging 8 yards per carry.

their six periods against Lake
Superior State, the Michigan hock-
ey team could muster only a period-
and-a-half of offense, resulting in a
Laker sweep by the scores of 4-3
and 4-1.
The losses dropped Michigan
out of first place in the CCHA.
"They (Lake Superior) play a
defensive style of hockey," said
Michigan coach Red Berenson.
"They didn't give us a lot of
chances and you have to do
something with your shots. We
didn't capitalize (on the power play)
and that was the difference in the
The Michigan scoring unit was
stagnant for the series, going 2-for-
14 on power plays.
In the first period of Friday's
game Michigan was able to move
the puck effectively, scoring goals

both early and late in the period by
seniors Todd Copeland (on a power
play) and Rob Brown.
Then, with 57 seconds passed in
the second period, sophomore right
winger Ted Kramer was able to
score on a power play that began

as hard," Kramer said. "I think they
were more aggressive and didn't let
us work behind the net like we were
able to in Chicago. We stopped
working and they outworked us the
last half of the game."
With Michigan holding a 3-1
lead at 12:10 in the second,
Michigan defenseman Doug Evans
was called for hooking. This proved
to be a costly penalty as Laker
defenseman Karl Johnston was able
to score on the power play a minute
For the remainder of the period
Lake Superior assaulted Michigan
goalie Warren Sharples with shots
from all angles and finally put the
puck past him with only 35
seconds left in order to tie the game
at three goals apiece.
"We had the momentum at that
point. Our work ethic and mid-zone
play weren't letting them take

women's at

Daily Sports Analysis
Even with the progress of non-
revenue sports at Michigan, they
still must survive in the shadow of
the Michigan football and bas-
ketball teams.
The basketball and football
programs provide enough money
for the other varsity sports to exist
and the athletic department supports
21 sports without any money from
the University's general fund.
Often overlooked, however, is
the growth and development of so-
called minor sports, particularly the
women's sports. A report submitted
last Thursday night to the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Athletics
attempted to address the role of
women's sports at the University.
After dutifully noting the im-
provements made in the women's
program since Bo Schembechler as-
sumed the athletic directorship in
June, 1988, the report specified a

number of areas needing improve-
ment, including:
- setting up a separate bureauc-
racy to administer the women's
program, in which the support staff
would enjoy the same access and
resources as the men's sports;
- giving the same attention to
women's sports from a public re-
lations standpoint as is given to:
comparable men's sports; and
- raising the salaries paid to
women's coaches and increasing the
inducements to bring top-flight
coaches to Michigan.
- Associate Athletic Director Jack
Weidenbach accepted the report on
behalf of the athletic department,
and promised to seriously consider
the issues raised.
One issue in the report is the
designation of "flagship sports"
which would receive the necessary
resources so they could be com-
petitive on a national level, while

called for roughing.
While Lake Superior had scored
a goal in the first minute of the
game, Michigan was able to hold
them off until halfway through the
second, when the Wolverine's
downfall began.
"It wasn't a tougher defensive
effort by them. We just didn't work

'I don't know how
much more from a
funding standpoint
we can go. It has cost
a lot of money, but it
is money well spent.'

Director in charge of
