Tastes of
Ann Arbor
.- Dining Guide

by Andy De Korte
No one on the Michigan foot-
ball team wanted to admit that
playing Washington state repre-
sented.a preseason tune-up be-
fore next Saturday's Notre Dame
game.
But it only took 76 seconds for
everyone to realize that the Cou-
gars were unable to offer the
Wolverines a serious challenge.
By the 13:44 mark, the Wol-
verines had already completed
three big plays on their way to a
41-14 victory. Tyrone Wheatley
returned the opening kickoff" 50
yards. Todd Collins completed a
42-yard pass to Derrick
Alexander on the first play from
scrimmage. Ricky Powers fin-
ished the drive with a one-yard
touchdown run.
By the time the Cougars (0-1
overall) scored with 1:20 left in
the first half, the Wolverines (1-
0) had put up31 points and went
into cruise control.
Collins controlled the vehicle
and had no trouble shifting gears
in his first game as Michigan's
No. 1 quarterback. Despite com-
pleting 15 passes on 24 attempts
for 218 yards in the first half he
hesitated to take too much credit.
"I think it was a combination
of them trying to stop the run and
them playing a zone," Collins
said. "We have so many good re-
ceivers that most teams the quar-
terback has to worry about
match-ups. With me I have the
luxury of no matter who Coach
(Gary Moeller) puts out there, I

A,"

know they can play."
When Derrick Alexander went
out with an ankle sprain shortly
after his quick strike, Moeller
exercised his options.
Mercury Hayes set career
highs for catches (8), yards (105),
and touchdowns (2). Amani
Toomer also chipped in with 69
yards receiving and a touchdown.
Collins went four for five in

the second halfto finish the game
with 265 yards.
Wheatley ran over the Cougar
defense, with his tone-setting
opening kickoff return a notice of
what was to come. He gained 105
yards on 13 carries in the first
half alone.
The big play came early in the
second quarter. On second down
and 10 at Michigan's 41,

Wheatley broke free down the
left side, bowled over two would-
be tacklers, and scampered 59
yards for a touchdown to put the
Wolverines ahead, 21-0.
While teams have come back
from such deficits, the Cougars
were not in a position to do so
against the Wolverine defense.
The Cougar offense did not run a
play on Michigan's side of the

SECONDARY
Continued from page 19
While these figures' impor-
tance for this season is uncer-
tain, one thing is not: the Michi-
gan defensive backfield will be
an interesting place.
The secondary's motto is "Own
the Seams," as in controlling the
passing lanes. Burch says pro-

every team wants to be great at,"
Moeller said. "We've got a little
more experience this year. We've
put a lot of effort into it."
While the Wolverines return
game seems solid, the kicking
game stands on less certain
ground. Senior Pete Elezovic
returns as place-kicker after win-
ning the job over junior Erik
Lovell and redshirt freshman
Remy Hamilton in the pre-
season. However, both Elezovic
and Lovell had field goals in
Michigan's victory over Washing-
ton State last Saturday.
Elezovic wht 7=for-12 last
year on field godlattempts, hit-

prietorship of the seams comes
from a) hitting and b) intimida-
tion.
It shouldn't be a problem. The
members of the backfield, known
collectively as the "Lynch Mob,"
hold a contest each game to see
who can register "the loudest
boom." When Burch lays out op-
ponents, he likes to laugh at them.
Peoples is called the Brick-
layer for his ability to deliver
ting only 3-for-7 from beyond 30
yards. Despite the disappointing
results, Moeller said he is posi-
tive about his trio.
"I think Pete and Eric Lovell
have both improved in their kick-
ing and Hamilton had that pulled
muscle when he came here early
last year but he's a lot stronger
now and his accuracy is getting
better," Moeller said.
Having earned the starting
nod midway through last season,
Chris Stapleton is set again to
do the punting for Michigan. The
senior averaged 39.7 yards a kick
in 1992, one tenth of ayard higher
than his career average. True
freshman Nate DeLong backs
up Stapleton.

punishing hits. At 6-feet and a
solid 221 pounds, Peoples is a
Playboy pre-season All-America
and a presence in the secondary.
This is a group whose idea of a
fun afternoon is putting the hurt
on opposing receivers and then
glowering over them as they peel
themselves off the ground.
The defensive alignment fig-
ures to let more defenders in on
the fun. Defensive coordinator
Lloyd Carr deployed as many as
six defensive backs at a time
against Washington State.
Others who should see plenty
of playing time are junior Deon
Johnson, sophomore Jean-
Agnus Charles and freshmen
DeolloAnderson and Clarence
Thompson.

set, which Moeller says he will
continue to use it in the future.
He caught one pass for five yards
in his debut.
Junior John Jaeckin also
saw time against the Cougars
and looks to be the third backup.
