Eagles grounded

#JON CONFERENCE -=

The significance of last season's
Michigan-Boston College game is plain
to see.t
It was Michigan quarterback Scott
Dreisbach's final game of the year.
Other than that, not much can be said
about last year's game, and there likely
won't be much said after this year's.
The Eagles return eight players on
offense, but none of them are quarter-
back Mark Hartsell.
Hartsell, who graduated last May, but
had a year of eligibility remaining,
opted to leave Boston College early. He
signed as a free agent with the
Washington Redskins.
Sophomore Scott Mutryn got the
start in Boston College's opening win at
Hawaii, but junior Matt Hasselbeck has
been given the starting nod this week-
end against Virginia Tech.
Junior Omari Walker, who ran for 538
yards last season, will be the Eagles top
runner,, and junior reciever Steve
Everson returns after being Boston
College's leading pass-catcher last year.
Defensively, Boston College lost
five starters, including linebacker
Matt Haff, who led the Eagles with
94 tackles.
"We will play a new scheme of
defense," Boston College coach Dan
Henning said. "Basically, it will be
what is known as a '8-man front'

defense with multiple looks."
Regardless of the new look, between
inexperience and a relatively tough
schedule, it may be tough to better last
season's 6-5 finish.
And as for the Wolverines, they hope
Boston College is only one of
Dreisbach's games, not the last.

Michigan and UCLA have played
some fun ones over the years.
The Wolverines lead the overall
series, 7-2, but the Bruins' two wins
have come in the past five matchups
between the two schools.
Back in the 1981 (now defunct)
Bluebonnet Bowl, Bo Schembechler's
Michigan squad pounded Terry
Donahue's Bruins, 33-14. Afterwards,
Donahue complained that
Schembechler ran up the score.
The next September in Ann Arbor,
the two schools met again, and, once
again it appeared that Donahue would
be complaining after the final whistle.
Early in the second quarter, the
Wolverines led, 21-0, and appeared well
on their way.
But faster than you can say "U-C-L-
A!, fight!, fight!, fight!," the Bruins
had stormed back for a 31-27 victory.
Never has a Michigan team led by so
much during a game and lost.

The two schools met again later that
season in the Rose Bowl with UCLA
winning the rematch, 24-14.
Then in 1989 in the waning seconds
of a nonconference game in the Rose
Bowl, the Wolverines executed the on-
side kick of their dreams and kicked a
winning field goal in a 24-23 besting of
the Bruins.
The next year, Michigan blitzed
UCLA in Ann Arbor, 38-15.
Which brings us to this season.
And while the Sept. 28 meeting
between the two schools- should be a
solid matchup, sadly for Southern
Californians - those not partial to
USC - UCLA isn't what it once was.
First-year coach Bob Toledo inherits
a squad that is just 43-36-1 over the past
seven seasons.
The Bruins are no longer a national
power. Toledo is out to change that.
"We feel Bob will be an outstanding
head coach for UCLA," said Peter
Dalis, UCLA Director of Athletics. "He
is a very innovative coach and his

offenses (as an assistant) at Oregon,
Texas A&M and UCLA have been cre-
ative and exciting."
While the Bruins return only 10
starters from last season's 7-5 team,
Toledo has a quarterback with a rifle
as a left arm in Cade McNown. Last
season, the" sophomore became the
first true freshman in school history to
throw for over 300 yards in a game
(306 versus Fresno State) and engi-
neered a 24-20 victory over No. 11
USC in the regular-season finale. The
victory over the Trojans marked
UCLA's fifth straight over its
crosstown rival.
McNown will test Michigan's sec-
ondary, but UCLA's defense remains
suspect, despite the return of six
starters.
The Bruins were eighth in the Pac-
10 in total defense last season.
