MO'S FIRST LUNCHEON:
Azcona punts his way to No. 1

by Ryan Schreiber
Daily Football Writer
A stellar performance from fill-in punter Ed-
uardo Azcona in South Bend has secured the
sophomore a starting slot in this Saturday's
game versus UCLA and possibly beyond.
After naming Azcona the Kick Team Cham-
pion for the week of the Notre Dame game,
Michigan head coach Gary Moeller made it clear
at yesterday's football luncheon that regular
Chris Stapleton may have a difficult time recap-
turing his position.
"He'll be the punter this week," Moeller said
of Azcona. "He has to get beat out now. I was
pleased with his performance. Every week's a
new challenge, but I thought he did a good job.
"Lou Holtz referred to their kid (Craig Hen-
trich) as the best punter in the country, and Eddie
went in and out-kicked him."
Azcona averaged 41.3 yards on three kicks for
the night as the replacement for the injured Sta-
pleton, who broke his foot during the summer.
Moeller remained visibly bitter about the
loss, especially since the Wolverines had done an
effective job on special teams. He compared the

game with the 31-30 defeat against Miami in
1988 that saw the Wolverines give up 17 points
in the final nine minutes.
"It's so God-dang frustrating, the whole game
plan," he said. "The one thing we wanted to do
was to do well in special teams. We didn't want
to turn the ball over like we did, but you wanted
to do well in the damn special teams.
"We beat them in the special teams, which
was where they had an advantage point in the
game. You know, you win the special teams and
rush for 457 yards, you should win that game.
"Our kids are down and we should be down.
We very honestly went into that game with the
idea that we were going to win that game. And
I'm not just whispering from the graveyard, ei-
ther. That's what hurts."
The first-year coach also expressed his disap-
pointment with Michigan's inability to add to
the lead and hold the Irish down.
"On their final drive, you're caught in be-
tween by that (missed) field goal and the missed
opportunity when we threw the interception (in
the end zone)," he said. "Now, they were coming
down with the idea that they want to win the

game and score a touchdown, but they can alto
settle for a field goal if they have to.
"So now the run, the pass, the mixing itw
with the time allotted on the clock gives thil
what I call a balanced opportunity. You couldI't
really do just everything defensively that ybu
wanted to do to strictly stop the pass."
When discussing ball spots for close ma-
surements, Moeller called the Irish luck
"unbelievable" and that when "they measpre
three, they get three. They measure four of ouis,
we get one."
Moeller was most impressed with the
"toughness" of sophomore Jon Vaughn in I*
first start. The young tailback was responsible
for 201 of Michigan's ground yards, earning Qf-
fensive Hustler honors for the week.
"Jon Vaughn's not a little kid," Moeller said;
"He doesn't look real big, but he has the ability
to be a physical runner."
The only casualty at Notre Dame was outside
linebacker Alex Marshall, who Moeller said is
day-to-day with a twisted right ankle and may- be
ready for action in the Wolverines' home openec
Saturday.

Injuries dampen Lions' triumph

PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) -
Wayne Fontes has had better Mon-
days. One day after his club won its
first game of the season, the Detroit
coach was in the dumps over the
news that the Lions could possibly
be without three of their top defen-
sive players against Tampa Bay next
week.
Free safety Bennie Blades is ex-
pected to miss at least two weeks
with an injured left knee, linebacker
Chris Spielman is nursing a sore

right shoulder and nose tackle Jerry
Ball has soreness in his back and
ankle.
"I'm concerned about it and wor-
ried," Fontes said Monday at his
weekly news conference. "We won't
know until (Tuesday) about the in-
juries to Bennie and Chris Spielman.
Right now, it doesn't look good.
"If I were a betting man, I would
bet they'd both be out for the game,
which puts a damper on Monday.
I'm not having a very good
Monday."
Blades missed most of Sunday's
21-14 victory over Atlanta after get-
ting hit on the left knee by a helmet

early in the first quarter. He watched
the second half on crutches with an
immobilizer on his left knee.
"Bennie said he doesn't feel as
sore today, but I'm looking at two
weeks (he'll be out)", Fontes said.
"It's an injury like Rodney Peete had
last year. We might have to sit him
a couple of weeks."
Spielman played one of the best
games of his career: 12 tackles, a
quarterback sack, and a recovered
fumble. One of those tackles stopped
Atlanta running back Steve Brous-
sard on 4th and one in Detroit
territory.
"Spielman is hurting like a

puppy today," Fontes said. "He's re-
ally hurting. When Chris Spielrhan
comes in and says it hurts, yoq've
got to believe him."
Ball sat out part of the secon
half with a sore ankle Sunday, a
then developed a sore back Monday.
If Blades is out for a long time,
Fontes said the Lions would liko to
re-sign former Michigan State star
John Miller, who played with the
club last season, but didn't make the
final cut this year. Herb Welch, who
started for the Giants when they won
the Super Bowl, would start in place
of Blades.
"Herbie did a good job (agaii
Atlanta)," Fontes said. "He was one
of the guys we were impressed with.
He always seemed to be around the
ball. We may have to count on hiim
to take a starting role now."
Victor Jones likely would start in
place of Spielman if he's out for the
Tampa Bay game. Rookie DIn
Owens could replace Ball at noseM
tackle, Fontes said. . 0
Fontes said Peete will continue..
to be the Lions' starting quarterback
despite a poor second half against-the
Falcons.
