LSSU's Anzalone calls
Berenson 'full of crap'
by Mike Gill
Daily Sports Editor
DETROIT - The feud between Michigan coach Red Berenson and Lake
Superior coach Frank Anzalone continued last Monday at the CCHA Final
Four Press conference held at Joe Louis Arena. It appears that two months
and several hundred miles did little to quell the animosity between the two.
When Anzalone was asked to respond to a remark Berenson made in
January about the Lakers clutch-and-grab style of play, Anzalone
responded, "I think Red is full of crap. No more comment. I think that's
bush. I think Red's bush."
After Lake Superior tied and defeated Michigan on January 5-6
Berenson said, "We all try to recruit good hockey players and you get some
coaches who go out and teach their kids how to nullify the good hockey...I
just think their team plays a style of hockey that is not good for the
quality of college hockey."
Before and after the actual press conference, the two coaches kept their
distance but were uncomfortably forced to sit next to each other during the
meeting with the media. Anzalone, who complained to the league office
about Berenson's remark, also complained Monday that the Ann Arbor
,media thinks he is "a maniac."
ANZALONE LEAVING? Even though Anzalone brought a national
championship to the tiny upper peninsula school, he seems less than
happy at Lake Superior and is awaiting the proper job offer to jump ship.
It also appears that Anzalone is having problems working with the
"My future plans are to stay at Lake Superior right now," Anzalone
said. "I feel the best thing for me to do is to just coach as hard as I can and
do the best job I can for the kids and if ever something comes along - I'll
know which program is a step up for me.
"Right now there are so many lateral moves that I might as well stay
with the devil I know than the devil I don't know... The marriage is
wearing thin due to some inner-circle things.
"There comes a time when you grow and people don't grow with you. I
think that the people who watch you build a program are fine. It's the
people who come in after you that want to rip it down or try to change
how to build it.
"We've not been marketed real well. We're more interested in running a
nice, tidy, neat athletic program and really, we're tidy and neat. How can
anyone not control seven sports? I think anyone can run our athletic
department if they had a little bit of a feel for athletics."
Anzalone said he turned down offers to coach at R.P.I. and Michigan
Tech, calling them "lateral moves."
APATHY? The two game playoff series which put Michigan into the
CCHA Final Four totaled fewer fans than the Wolverines averaged for a
league game during the regular season. The Friday, March 2 game drew
2,011 and the follow up game filled 2,704 seats, totaling 4,715. In 16
league games, which did include special promotions and lower ticket
prices, Yost Ice Arena averaged 5,054.
"It bothers me," Berenson said of the poor playoff attendance. "We tried
to advertise our playoff series more than we ever have in the past, and the
interest is really casual, even though classes are out. We have a great
nucleus of fans and our band all stayed but we don't have the increment of
people who come to a program when they sense that it is exciting."
MICHIGAN SNUBBED: Also at Monday's press conference, the
1989-90 coaches All-CCHA teams were announced with no Michigan
player making the top two teams. The first team is as follows: Jason
Muzzatti (Goalie; MSU), Rob Blake (Defense; BGSU), Kord Cernich
(Defense; LSSU), Kip Miller (Forward; MSU), Nelson Emerson (Forward;
BGSU), Craig Fisher (Forward; Miami.)
Warren Sharples and Denny Felsner received honorable mention. While
Berenson agreed that Blake stood out this season on defense, he had hoped
Alex Roberts would also receive recognition, but thought that the senior
co-captain's tough-guy reputation worked against him to receive the honor.
"That's the price you pay when you're an aggressive player," Berenson
said. "A lot of coaches don't like a guy like that on the other team but you
like him when he's on your team. He's come a long way, you would like
to have seen him get the recognition."

The pressure on Michigan was to finish ahead
of Bowling Green and ironically, the two faced
one another in the consolation game.
Though the Wolverines have not yet officially
received an NCAA bid, they should expect to
receive one tonight. Overcoming exhaustion and
emotions from the night before, Michigan
displayed that it is one of the top 12 teams in the
lead, only 1:05 into Sunday's game.

The announcement was made at the
CCHA banquet held in Detroit on
Friday. Entering this weekend's
games, Roberts had totalled 51
points with 19 goals and 32 assists.
Roberts is the cousin of captain
Alex Roberts and the son of former

Roberts had taken a measles
shot before the game Saturday and
was not able to skate well because
of stomach pains. However, his
health returned against Bowling
Green and he notched two goals.
In fact, the entire line of
