one game under their belts. The
only time the Wolverines have
beaten Notre Dame in the last five
meetings was last year, when the
Wolverines warmed up at Boston
College.
"I think anytime you're around.
football you hear coaches say a lot
- and there's good reasons for it
- that you make the biggest im-
provement from game one to game
two, because you get a lot of the
kinks ironed out, the calmness, the
coolness, the first game mistakes,"
Moeller said. "I don't want to dwell
on (not having played a game yet)
because I can't dwell on it with our
team. You're cards are dealt to you,
and you.gotta play them.
"But I would rather be in the po-
sition where I've played a game
than I haven't, and I think most
coaches around the country would
share that opinion."
Although the coaching staff has
had the opportunity to scout the
Irish, Moeller warns not to place
too much emphasis on what Notre
Dame showed last week.
"I didn't have to scout them to
know what kind of back (Jerome)
Bettis was; all I had to do was
watch last year's film and know
him personally. I didn't have to
scout them to see what Rick Mirer
was, I know about (Lake) Dawson,
Lindsay Knapp, a lot of those peo-
ple.
* "Really the offense
Northwestern runs is not the one
we're gonna be running, so what
we scouted them there is probably,
not gonna be at all what we're
gonna get in the football game. So
sometimes you can be misled in
those scouting reports. There's
some advantage, but not enough to
offset the experience your players
get (by playing a game).
What Moeller knows is the Irish
have two of the most dynamic of-
fensive performers in the nation.
Quarterback Mirer, a lifelong
Wolverine fan who chose Notre
Dame because he was ignored on
his visit to Ann Arbor, is an odds-
on favorite to become the eighth
Irish Heisman Trophy winner.
Mirer threw for 170 yards and
two scores last week, but his talents
were not in great demand because
of the successful ground game.
Fullback Bettis, who reportedly

also was close to being a
Wolverine, is Notre Dame's pri-
mary weapon. The junior, also a top
Heisman candidate, burst onto the
scene last season when he rushed
for 972 yards and 16 touchdowns,
'Their offensive line
dominated us last
year, and we know
they're going to move
the football against us
with the number of
weapons they have.,
- Lou Holtz
ND football coach
bowling his way through many of
the nation's top defenses. He picked
up Saturday right where he left off,
carrying 19 times for 130 yards.
"I don't think it's very hard to
pick him out where he's lined up (at
fullback or tailback)," Moeller said.
"You can see him, you can know
where he's at, and you can some-
times know he's gonna get the
football, but it's still very difficult
to stop him ,
"I know they'll mix some things
in for us that they didn't play
against Northwestern - we always
expect that - but he's an outstand-
ing football player, he's just a hard
guy to tackle, and that's where you
gotta get numbers to the ball and

make sure you wrap him up. I don't
know that we're gonna see a better
back."
When Bettis is not bouncing off
of defenders, tailback Reggie
Brooks probably will be. Brooks,
who was a starting cornerback two
years ago, nearly matched his ca-
reer total with 157 yards in the
opener.
However, the big story in South
Bend has been the suspension of
linebacker Demetrius DuBose, an
all-American candidate. DuBose
accepted money from a Notre
Dame alumnus in his hometown of
Seattle, saying the alumnus had
been a family friend for a number
of years. The NCAA didn't quite
buy that story, though, and DuBose
was declared ineligible for the first
two games of the season.
"Anytime you take one of your
star players, a captain, out of the
team, it's obviously gonna hurt
you," Moeller said. "DuBose has
been a very, very active football
player for them. Anyone would be
better with him in there than with-
out. They lose a lot of experience
there, but they still have good foot-
ball players. It probably hurts them
a little, but I don't think to any
large degree that it softens them."
Irish coach Lou Holtz disagrees.
Holtz is maintaining his weekly po-
sition that his team is not as good as
everyone thinks, and that it will
have an awfully tough time beating
anybody.

"This is going to be an awfully
big challenge for us," he said. "Last
year (a 24-14 Michigan victory)
they shut us off offensively. Their
offensive line dominated us last
year, and we know they're going to
move the football against us with
the number of weapons they have.
(Elvis) Grbac has played great
against us for three years, and
(Ricky) Powers is as tough a back
as you'll find anywhere. (Chris)
Hutchinson is probably the best
lineman in the Big Ten.
"They won it up front against us
last year, they've won four straight
Big Ten titles and we know we're
going to have to improve tremen-
dously this week to compete against
them."
