Ohio State coach Russ Hellickson
questioned Gotcher's move. "To do
that move well, you're going to hurt
the guy. It just exceeds the guy's
structural limitations."
Michigan coach Dale Bahr
disagreed. "Gotcher's a tough kid,
and if the guy was in pain, he could
have allowed himself to get pinned.
If it were too dangerous, it wouldn't
be legal."
Gotcher then decisioned
Wisconsin's John Harms, 3-1.
Harms had control of the senior co-
captain in the first perigd, but
Gotcher countered and scored the
decisive takedown.
"A lot of times a guy thinks he
has you, but he doesn't," Gotcher
said. "I'm fast enough at 158 that I
can scramble away from these guys,"
Lehrke, fifth-ranked nationally at,
190 pounds, also netted the
Wolverines nine team points, most
notably a 39-second pin of Buckeye
Heath Eddlebutte. His fallgave
Michigan its first lead of the
evening, 18-17.
"Fritz has been superb for
Michigan," Hellickson said. "I've
always liked his attitude." Lehrke
went on to defeat Wisconsin's Jon
Kelly, 4-1, breaking the 16-16 tie
between the teams.
"Fritz is our clutch man right
now - no question about it,"
teammate Phil Tomek said.
It was Tomek who preserved the
Wolverines' lead with a 3-0 decision
over Badger_ heavyweight Lee
Krueger. However, the night before,
Tomek lost a 3-2 decision to Eric
Schultz, giving Ohio State the
points it needed to win the meet.
But Bahr did not cite Tomek's
loss as the cause for the team's
defeat. "I was pleased with everyone

from 158 and up, including Tomek.
I was disappointed at 126 and 142."
Both Salem Yaffai (126) and
James Rawls (142) led by a point
late in the third period of their
matches. However, with one second
remaining, Adam DiSabato scored a
takedown on Yaffai to win, 10-9.
Ironically, brother Mike DiSabato
followed suit by taking down Rawls
with two seconds left.
"Their guys may have been
favored, but once you get that far,
you've got to win those matches,"
Bahr said. "But you can be sure
nobody feels worse about it than
(Yaffai and Rawls) do."
Yaffai rebounded against
Wisconsin by pinning Burke Tyree
at 4:06, the only Michigan victory
in the ten lower-weight matches over
the weekend.
Badger coach Andy Rein saw the
126-pound match as the key to
Wisconsin's defeat. "Our regular
starter, Dan Flood, got sick, and I
think Flood gets the edge if he goes
against Yaffai. That's a nine-point
swing," Rein said.
The other keys to both matches
occurred at 167 and 177. Justin
Spewock (167) edged Ohio State's
Paul Reinbolt, 5-4, and drew with
Badger Matt Abad, 4-4. Down 4-2
with eight seconds remaining in the
match, Spewock reversed Abad for
the tie.
"I wrestled his match, not mine,"
Spewock said. "But the one good
thing for me was that I didn't lose
my poise."
Poised as ever for Michigan was
Lanny Green (177), who recorded
victories of 6-0 and 8-2. His
performance pleased Bahr and
surprised both opposing coaches.
"He's only a redshirt freshman,
but he's someone we count on to
win every time," Bahr said. "He
never gives up anything easy."

Although Michigan never really
sealed either game, the Wolverines
entered the third periods of both in
good shape after solid second frames.
Friday night, Michigan's Mike
Moes finished the Redskins off at
19:29 of the second period when he
went around the net and stuffed the
puck into the goal just before goalie
Mark Michaud could catch him.
"There was a scramble in front of
the net and I was looking around
players," Michaud said. "I didn't see
the puck until he picked it up and he
beat me to the other side."
Miami coach George Gwozdecky
felt the goal was the pivotal event in
the game.
"The goal that really killed us
was the goal they scored in the last
minute of the second period," he
said. "The fourth goal really hurt us
because we were in the game."
Moes' goal gave Michigan a 4-2
lead and capped a three goal period
by the Wolverines. Previously,
Denny Felsner went behind the net
to tally a wraparound goal and Alex
Roberts, who was later named
CCHA Player-of-the-Week, knocked
a rebound over a fallen Michaud to
give Michigan a 3-1 edge.
"We had a couple of good
individual efforts from Moes and
Felsner," Michigan coach Red
Berenson said.
Miami mounted a minor
comeback when Todd Harkins, who
was a terror all weekend on the
Miami power play, scored his first
goal of the series at 12:29 to bring
the Redskins back to within one.
But Moes' goal late in the period,

followed by a shorthanded goal by
Don Stone and a goal by David
Roberts in the third period gave
Michigan the win.
"We kept the game close early
but when they turned it up in the
latter part of the second period and
third, our big-name players didn't
respond like theirs," Gwozdecky
said. "We had been 2-for-2 on the
power play and then they scored with
our best power play unit out there."
Saturday night, with Miami
again down by only one goal
midway through the game, first-year
center Mark Ouimet put a move on
the Miami goalie to make the score
5-3. The goal was the last of four
second period scores which brought
the Wolverines back from a 2-1
deficit created by a Scott Mazi goal
36 seconds into the second period.
Before Ouimet iced the game,
senior Brad Turner scored on.a power
play which was followed by
Ouimet's first goal and a Mike Moes
slapshot. Then Ouimet's second
score kept the Michigan lead at two.
"I didn't think we were out of
the game at all," Harkins said. "They
scored on a couple of key
Miami mounted a threat late in
the third period when, down 6-4,
Harkins scored his third goal of the
night at 19:49. But Michigan's
Ryan Parkdoski got the puck off the
ensuing faceoff and rolled it into an
empty net at 19:54 to end the

Copeland cannot be disciplined for
off-ice conduct by the University
because the University places no
regulations on students for non-
academic conduct.
Recently, the conflict between
academics and athletics has taken on
a new ring. Specifically, admin-
istrative jurisdiction over athletic
auton-omy has become an issue.
When the Big Ten presidents
invited Penn State into the
conference, members of the Big Ten
athletic departments, including out-
going Michigan AD Bo Schem-
bechler, decried their respective
administrations, saying they were
wrong not to solicit their input into
the decision.

Now, with Copeland's case,
Michigan's battle lines are drawn
around a player instead of a school,
and the lines of fair play have
become even more blurred.
Even Berenson is still coming to
grips with the decision. "I was
surprised," Berenson said. "I've only
been here six years but this is the
first time something like this has
Obviously, the whole situation
could have been avoided if Berenson
had continued the suspension on his
own. Because he did not, the
questions and difficulties of Student
vs. Player and Academics vs.
Athletics are being brought out into
the open.
