Ron Johnson's 347 yards against Wisconsin in 1968.
The offensive line has already received the gift of gabbing to the press
after the game. But Detroit Lions running back Barry Sanders presented his
linemen last year with watches for the holes they created. Would the
Wolverines' big men like a present?
"No, we get presents from looking at the scoreboard," Skrepenak said.
"We know we've done our job when a back has that type of game.
Put it this way, the linemen would like a pair of old panty hose: big
holes, long runs. Not Sheer Energy, just Vaughn's Leggs.

Retiring women's athletic director Phyllis Ocker has always been in the middle of women's sports at Michigan. She played an
insturmental role in founding the women's program at Michigan in 1974. She is stepping down from her position at the beginning
of 1991 after serving for 13 years.

Listening to Ocker speak of her coaching days, one gets the
impression that this is someone who is in the business for all
the right reasons.
"I think that's why any of us are in education," Ocker said.

Even if Ocker's accomplishments are not recognized outside
of the program, her coaches appreciate what she has done.
"I think she's been a tremendous asset to the program,
women's basketball coach Bud VandeWege said. "She's been
here from the beginning, and we've really come a long way."
Despite the incredible growth of the program over the last
decade, it is not Ocker's nature to be satisfied with the past.
There are things she would like to see after she has retired.
"The most difficult thing has been the lack of support from
the students," Ocker said. "We've made a real effort to get
students to become spectators at women's sports events, and
our attendance is still low."
Raising attendance will be just one of the goals of Ocker's
successor, who has yet to be named. While she will not take an
active role in the selection process, she is confident that,
because of her coaches, the transition process will be a smooth
one.
It is because of Ocker's efforts that when, years from now,
the time comes to retire, people will actually know her
successor's name.
