Icers want CCHA title
by Matt Rennie
Daily Hockey Writer
When the action had subsided on the Yost Arena ice,
Michigan hockey coach Red Berenson waved to the
officials as they skated off the ice and yelled, "Thanks,
Then, under his breath, Berenson joked, "The only
time of the year referees are okay is in the off-season."
While Berenson was in a light-hearted mood on the
sidelines, the players in the scrimmage were working as
if it were a March playoff game. The Wolverine icers
opened the 1990-91 campaign earlier this week with
their first on-ice action since the spring.
While the first week of practice is generally devoted
to clearing out the summer cobwebs, the Wolverines
have the additional task of incorporating nine first-year
players into their team.
Berenson said that these initial practices are a real,
adjustment for the newcomers.
"This is a good workout for the freshmen," he said.
"Most of these guys have never worked this hard before
in their lives."
Despite the trying circumstances, Berenson was
impressed with how his young players were handling
"They are blending in really well, on and off the
ice," he said. "None of them are out of place."
Two rookies receiving a lot of attention are
goaltenders Chris Gordon and Steve Shields. Both are
expected to compete with junior Tim Keough for the
starting job vacated by Warren Sharples, who graduated
Sophomore defenseman and co-captain, Dave Harlock
acknowledged that the position is up for grabs, but he
hopes that whoever wins the job won't have much to
"Timmy Keough worked real hard over the summer,"
Harlock said. "The freshmen know that nothing is
written in stone, though.
"I don't think it will be problem. If we have to
depend on our goaltending to bail us out, we won't be a
very strong contender."
And Michigan does plan to be a strong contender in
the Central Collegiate Hockey Association race. After
being snubbed by the NCAA tournament selection
committee last season in favor of Bowling Green, the
team has something to prove this year.
"The end of last season was a disappointment,"
Harlock said. "For last year's seniors, they didn't have
another chance (to make the tournament). We can
redeem ourselves this season. It will probably be in the
back of our minds when we play Bowling Green this
Qualifying for the NCAA tournament is certainly
foremost among the Wolverines' goals, but the team
may be setting their sights even higher, though.
"At the beginning of the season, number one in the
CCHA is our goal," Harlock said. "Lake Superior and
Michigan State will obviously be the strongest
competition, but we're right there."
After last year's rejection by the NCAA tournament, the hockey team looks to repeat celebrations like this.

ane. I mean they're NOTRE
One of the things Michigan does
not have right now is a starting
tailback. Moeller has not yet made a
decision between Jon Vaughn and
"We'll probably have Jefferson
and, Vaughn rotate and (highly
recruited rookie) Ricky Powers could
seer some action. It could be a
op ing thing or we'll see who gets
tP hot hand," Moeller said.
Said Michigan all-American
senior guard Dean Dingman: "I think
the running game will be just as
good but will lack the experience.
And with our offensive line being all
veterans, it should be fine."
Running against a Notre Dame
defensive line that averages 275
pounds could prove difficult nonethe-
. Defensive tackle George
Williams and nosetackle Chris Zor-
ich are of prime concern. Williams
will be hard to dislodge at a not-so-
svelte 298 pounds and Zorich gave
the Wolverines fits last year.
We haven't gone up against
peple the size of Williams in
practice," Moeller said. "It's a big,
strong, physical line. Weave got to
do* a better job on blocking Zorich
n we did last year and that's not
*Controlling the all-American
nosetackle will once again fall on
the shoulders of center Steve Everitt.
"We don't think Steve played within
hiiself last year," said Moeller. "He
played out of control...Everitt should
be better than he was last year."
Michigan might find success
easier through the air if the offensive
line provides enough time for
sophomore quarterback Elvis Grbac's
dropback-passing to develop.
Moeller said he plans to take advan-
tage of Grbac's arm by passing 10-
15% more this year.
Last year, Grbac made his debut
against Notre Dame in relief of
Michael Taylor, completing 17 of
21 passes with two touchdowns.
"Michigan's ability to run the
ball always scares you as does
Grbac's ability to throw the ball.
They have a great blend," Holtz said.
