RECEIVERS
Continued from Page 483
about his receivers' potential. And he
especially likes one of them.
"I think Tai Streets has the opportu-
nity, before he's done, to be a great
receiver," Carr said.
Freshmen Marcus Knight and Aaron
Wright may factors as well, pushing
Butterfield, Streets and Williams for
playing time.
And Carr has yet another weapon.
"All of those receivers, I think, at
some point in time, are going to be
good football players Carr said. "But
I would say Shaw was very impres-
sive."
If you haven't heard of Russell
Shaw, it's because he is a transfer stu-
dent from El Camino Community
College in Torrence, Calif. He started
two years there, setting school career
records in receptions (111) and receiv-
ing yards (1,988, 17.9 average). He
scored 25 career touchdowns and set
another record when he scored four in
one game.
It's possible Shaw will have similar
statistics in Ann Arbor. It's possible
freshman Jerry Dioron, sophomore
Todd Brooks and the rest of the
receivers will answer all the tough
questions.
The possibilities are motivation
enough.
"People are always against you,"
Streets said. "You want to prove them-
wrong."

defense is the

and Butkus
Award candidate
Jarrett Irons.
There have
even been whis-
pers that Irons
leads a lineback-
ing unit that
could be
Michigan's best
ever.
"We have a lot
of experience at
the linebacker
position," Carr
said. "It's easy
for a team to
think (the line-
backers) are
going to be great,
because they
have experi-
ence."
Irons was the
team's leading
tackler two of the
past three sea-
sons and ranks
10th in school
history in career
tackles. He is a

whole.
"There seems to be some question
about our offensive line," Carr said. "I
think depth and injury would be some
problem for us."
The departure of left tackle Jon
Runyan didn't help.
The All-American had a year of eli-
gibility left, but he got antsy last spring
and bolted for the NFL and the
Houston Oilers.
But as we all know, early defections
are a part of college sports, and sopho-
more Jon Jansen and senior Thomas
Guynes will be called upon to fill the
void left by Runyan.
Jansen started all 13 games as a
freshman a year ago, after putting on a
lot of weight and gaining a lot of con-
fidence.
"I think Jansen is a solid player,"
Carr said. "He is going to get better
and better in his second year as a
starter."
Junior Joe Ries is Payne's backup at
center and can also play either guard
position. Guard Noah Parker and tack-
le John Partchenko also have playing
experience.
And pancake experience.

Defense

To reach the Rose Bowl, Michigan's
defense must be as good as it was a
year ago.
And it certainly was a quality unit
last fall. In fact, the blame for the
Wolverines' third-place Big Ten finish
can be placed almost solely on the
offensive 11. The defense wasn't
guilty. Michigan coach Lloyd Carr's
corps was best in the league and rated
No. 11 nationally in total defense.

1o an opposing detensive lineman,
Michigan must seem more like a pan-
cake factory than an academic institu-
tion.
Because Michigan offensive line-
men keep flattening the opposition
season after season. In fact, 43
Michigan offensive linemen have
claimed All-America status over the
years.
Center Rod Payne looks to become
No. 44 this fall. He will be flanked by
Zach Adami and Damon Denson at the
guard positions.
"I think in Rod Payne, Zack Adami
and Damon Denson, we have an out-
standing trio in the interior of our
line," Michigan coach Lloyd Carr said.
"They're all outstanding leaders, and
they're all outstanding football play-
ers."
Outstanding offensive linemen is
indeed a Michigan tradition.
But while quarterback Scott
Dreisbach should certainly feel secure
behind Payne, Adami and Denson, he
is less safe if others are forced to step
in at guard or center. In fact, Carr does
have some concerns about the line as a

Wol yeri nes'
defensive captain for the second year
in a row.
Sophomore Sam Sword and junior
Rob Swett are battling for the other
inside linebacker position, with sopho-
more Clint Copenhaver also expected to
see significant action. Swett started
eight games a year ago and is in the
"best condition of his life," Carr said
before the season.
Sophomores David Bowens and
Chris Singletary and junior Mike
Elston provide solid depth at outside
linebacker.
Elston has suffered (and recovered)
from more injuries than Evil Knievil.
He has had to rehabilitate shoulder
