Returning 14 of 22 starters from
last season, many expect Michigan's
football team to race away with a
third straight Big Ten title. But right
now they don't have the wheels.
In a press conference yesterday at
Crisler Arena, coach Gary Moeller
updated the team's progress after four
weeks of spring practice.
"The running back position
concerns me. I could keep wishing
they're (Tony Boles and Leroy
Hoard) back, but you have to move
on," the first-year coach said.
"Nobody has stood out yet and it'll
be an interesting battle in the fall."
Senior Allen Jefferson and sopho-
mores John Vaughn and Dennis
Washington lead the fight to suc-
ceed the injured Boles and departed
"Dennis and John have made im-
proving strides," Moeller said. "But
if I had to start someone tomorrow, I
don't know who I'd start."
Jefferson entered spring practice
with more experience than the other
two, but has been unable to claim
the starting position. "(Jefferson) has
not pulled away from the other two
and I can't say he's the guy I'd
start," Moeller added.
Moeller emphasized that it would
not surprise him if one of Michi-
gan's new recruits carries the ball
next year.

Moeller also expressed concern
with how well the front line will
block for a team that plans to im-
plement the forward pass more often.
"The offensive line has been a
focus - we know we have to im-
prove our pass protection and the
line has got to play better to replace
all the skilled players we lost,"
Moeller said.
But the trenches will continue to
be without Dean Dingman. Nursing
a sore shoulder since the Rose Bowl,
the senior guard had surgery per-
formed Tuesday and should return to
practice in three to four weeks.
"The timing of (the operation)
should not keep him from playing in
the fall, but if the surgery does not
correct the injury, that'll keep him
from playing," Moeller said.
Moeller helped clear the air on
who next year's starting signal caller
will be when he announced, "Elvis
(Grbac) is the quarterback and unless
we have an injury, that will not
Moeller said Grbac's playing ex-
perience last year will help him ad-
just to next year's varied offensive
"We're not going to throw 50
times a game, but we will pass more
than in the past," Moeller said. "We
would like to take some of the op-
tion plays and turn them into
passing plays."

The Michigan baseball team
defeated the University of Detroit, 9-
1, at Fisher Stadium yesterday. That
is, unless the umpires change their
In a bizarre, snow-filled affair in
which the umpires reversed their dec-
ision on two separate calls, the Wol-
verines banged out ten hits to im-
prove their record to 15-14 overall.
As he promised after last week-
end's Iowa series, Bill Freehan jug-
gled his lineup, inserting rookies
Scott Timmerman and Scott Winter-
lee. Consequently, the Wolverines
went without two of their regulars,
Matt Morse and Tim Flannelly.
Flannelly was expected to start but
missed the game due to illness.
Timmerman responded to the
opportunity with his first collegiate
hit, a sixth-inning homer. The two-
run shot, with shortstop Dave
Everly on first, broke a 1-1 deadlock.
The rookie second baseman shook
off pre-game jitters to put on his
sterling performance.
"I was a little nervous at first,"
Timmerman said. "That went away
as we went on playing. (The homer)
felt pretty good when I hit it, but I
wasn't sure (if it was gone). It really
gave me more confidence."
Timmerman displayed this new
confidence in the eighth inning,
when he broke the game open with a
two-run double to cap the four-run
inning and give the Wolverines their

s confused in 'M' win

This action incensed the Mich-
igan team and resulted in the ejection
of Wolverine assistant Ted Mahan.
Two innings later, shortly after
Timmerman's home run, Andy Fair-
man walked with two out. Winston,
the following hitter, hit a shot down
the leftfield line. The umpire ini-
tially called the ball fair, and Win-
ston pulled into second with an RBI
double. Again, Miller responded
with angry words. Amazingly, the
umpire reversed his call a second
time, putting Haeger back on first
with Winston still up.
"He called the ball fair," Freehan
said. "When the umpire whose res-
ponsibility it is to make a call feels
he made it right, then no one can
override him."
The calls proved to be of little
consequence, thanks in large part to
the work of five Michigan pitchers.
Each member of the Wolverine start-
ing rotation threw for two innings,
surrendering only six hits. During
one stretch, the Wolverine hurlers
retired 20 out of 21 hitters.
The Wolverines have a rematch
with the Titans today at 3:00 at
Fisher Stadium for another nine-
inning contest.

Not everything came easy for the
Wolverines, though. With the score
still tied in the fourth inning and
Greg Haeger on first, Todd Winston
hit a grounder to Titan shortstop
Rick Tavormina. Tavormina flipped
to second baseman Dennis Bushart
who forced Haeger, but Winston beat

the relay to first to prevent the
double play.
Titan coach Bob Miller protested
the call, claiming Haeger interfered
with Bushart's throw by sliding past
the base. After hearing the argument,
the umpire changed his original call,
declaring Winston out and the inning
