For the first time in 21 years,
Michigan football coach Gary
Moeller surveyed the Wolverines's
opening day of spring practice with
no Bo. "I don't know... to say I'm a
little excited - that doesn't sound
right," he said.
If anything, Moeller was more
pragmatic than excited about kicking
off the football season. The team
still has holes at several positions,
most notably at running back and de-
fensive line. "The biggest thing is
running backs right now," Moeller
said. "It's the major concern of the

After a disappointing finish for
the 1989 men's golf team, this
year's edition has mixed emotions
about the upcoming season. With
the loss of last year's top two
starters, Hersh Patel and Bob Papp,
the squad is full of question marks.
Michigan began its season this
past weekend at the South Florida
Invitational in Tampa, Florida. As
coach Jim Can as commented, "The
team started off well but continu-
ously got worse."
Michigan compiled a three day
score of 934 with rounds of 303,
314 and 317. Their score placed
them 16th in an 18 team field.
"In a tournament such as this, the
target score is 300 or better, with an
average round being 75 per man.
You can't have guys shooting 80 or
higher and expect to succeed," Carras
Carras tried to explain his team's
disappointing finish. "One problem
for a northern school is the lack of
preparation. While the teams from
the South have a chance to play ev-
ery day, we can't even think about
opening our golf course until April."
Michigan's talent, however, runs
deep, starting with fifth-year senior
"Chris is an excellent player,"
Carras said. "He is long off the tee
and has an excellent iron game. He
definitely has potential for All-Big
Other major contributors are se-
nior captain Tom Paton and first-
year player James Carson, who Car-
ras described as "one of the best
freshman we have had in many
years." In addition, the team picked
up Vanderbilt transfer Patrick Moore
this year who "has potential to be a
strong collegiate player," Carras
"This is a promising team," Car-
ras said. "Anyone can shoot well at
any give time. We can definitely
give every Big Ten team a run for
Paton, while optimistic, is also a
little unsure about the team.
"This is a very young team," Pa-
ton said. "We are pretty talented
from top to bottom, but no one is
proven. This team definitely needs
"Unless we play better, we will
not finish in the top five in the Big
Ten", Carras said. "I hope we place
in the top three."
The Big Ten Championships, an
event usually dominated by Big Ten
rival Ohio State, are May 18-20 in
Minneapolis, Minnesota this year.
"Anyone can get hot and win it,"
Paton said. "If we can put it all to-
gether, this team has a lot of poten-
