said. "This will be a tuneup for our
swimmers for the Olympic Trials
which will be held in Indianapolis
on March 1."
The Wolverines have been im-
pressive this year. Michigan enters
the dual meet (3-0 in the Big Ten, 8-
0 overall). However, the Wolver-
ines have yet to face a team with the
overall talent which Stanford pos-
sesses.
Urbanchek feels that going into
the meet, Stanford appears very
strong, but beatable.
"They have the depth advantage
on paper," Urbanchek said. "How-
ever, we are pretty evenly matched
from event to event. Time is
insignificant in this meet. Actually

winning each event is very sig-
nificant."
Michigan has won its last four
dual meets against Stanford, win-
ning last year 132-111.
"In the past, we have been very
lucky against Stanford winning by a
small margin each time," Ur-
banchek said.
Individually for Michigan, Ur-
banchek is anticipating strong per-
formances from butterflyer Brian
Gunn who will be competing in
three individual events.
"I am also looking for Rodney
Van Tassell and Steve West to do
well in their specialties," Ur-
banchek said.
Stanford's top individual per-
former entering the meet is Brian
Retterer, U.S. and NCAA record
holder in the 100 and 200
backstrokes. Junior Steve Bigelow
goes head to head against the Stan-
ford sophomore in the 200.
Wolverine rookie Gustavo
Borges, who has been impressive in
the early part of the season, will
face Retterer in the 50 freestyle.
Borges, the 1991 Pan American
Champion, set a season best of 20.54
last week.
Today at 7 p.m., the teams will
have a non-scoring dual meet with
some of the younger swimmers
competing. Tomorrow at 5 p.m., the
main event begins.

Former Wolverine Johnson
elected into collegiate Hall

................

from Staff Reports
Eleven all-America players and two coaches were
named as electees to the College Football Hall of
Fame for 1992 yesterday. Former Michigan star Ron
Johnson heads the list.
Johnson, originally from Detroit, played halfback
for the Wolverines from 1966-68. While in Ann Arbor
he set numerous marks, and racked up many honors. He
captained Michigan during his senior season, 1968, and
also earned Big Ten MVP honors. In addition, he was
the Wolverines' team MVP in 1967 and 1968. Johnson
also garnered the Big Ten Conference Medal of Honor
for Scholarship and Athletics.
During his final Michigan season, 6-foot-1 former
halfback set a Wolverine record with 19 rushing
touchdowns, eclipsing Tom Harmon's mark set in
1940. Also during his senior year, he tied a Big Ten
record with five rushing scores in Michigan's 34-9 vic-
tory over Wisconsin, Nov. 16, 1968. In that same game
against the Badgers, Johnson, set a Wolverine record
with 347 yards rushing.
His 139.1 average rushing yards per game during
1968 remained a Michigan record until Jamie Morris
averaged 141.9 yards in 1987. And Johnson's 1557 com-
bined rushing/receiving yards in 1968 also stayed as a
Wolverine record until Morris shattered it with 1825
yards in 1987.
Following his Michigan career, Johnson went on to
play five years in the NFL with the New York Giants
where he became one of their leading career ground
gainers.
Following his football career, Johnson became a
business executive, and he presently owns a Kentucky
Fried Chicken franchise in New Jersey.
The other player electees are: Jim Lynch (Notre
Dame linebacker 1964-66), Lou Michaels (Kentucky
defensive tackle/linebacker 1954-57), Larry Morris
(Georgia Tech center/linebacker 1951-54), Craig Mor-
