New coaches hired

BY STEVE BLONDER
Wolverine sidelines will feature
two new coaches this fall, as Beverly
Fry was hired to coach the woman's
gymnastics team and Patti Smith
was named field hockey coach on an
interim basis.
Smith replaces Karen Collins,
who resigned recently "to pursue
other career opportunities," only
three weeks before fall practice
opens. The late change has left
several players baffled about how
things will proceed in the fall.
Several of the veteran players had
complained about Collins to athletic
department officials after last season,

but no connection has been
established between her leaving and
the complaints.
Smith has been a Michigan
assistant coach for the past two
seasons, and recently earned a
masters degree in sports management
from Springfield College.
Fry comes to Ann Arbor from
West Virginia, where she was a
graduate assistant for the past two
seasons. Before that, she was an all-
American gymnast for
Mountaineers.
Ex-head coach Dana Kempthorn
resigned earlier this summer to
pursue other interests.

Steve
Blonder
Well, why should we be surprised that ex-Michigan
coach Bill Frieder recently lost a recruit.
Frieder had offered guard Herb Brown a scholarship,
but Brown couldn't quite make the Arizona State cut,
as the university failed to accept him. Michigan had
been recruiting Brown until his academic problems
became apparent.
With Brown's inability to get into school already
public knowledge, one wonders why the ASU sports
information department denied the whole affair
yesterday.
Maybe Frieder really is having an effect there.
- Speaking of losing players, the University of
Pittsburgh is now accepting resumes for basketball
players. After losing their entire five-man basketball
recruiting class to Proposition 48, Pitt is in danger of
losing two starters for academic reasons.
Both BobbyMartin and Brian Shorter face the same
math final examination that felled last year's starting
quarterback
Maybe Pitt ought to redesign its "counting for
athletes" class.
- Question: In what year did Louis Elbel compose
"The Victors"?
- Now that Michigan marching band director Eric
Becher has added an "ex" to his title, one can only
wonder whether the marching band will rate as highly
as this year's Wolverine football squad.
Early answer: No.
The School of Music has been consistent, having
to employ only three marching band directors over the
past 64 years. Let's hope the halftime shows this
season also break with traditions of consistency.
- Speaking of football, when was the last time the
Wolverines stirred up this much pre-season interest?

Sports, academics,
and other thoughts
Never, according to coach Bo Schembechler who
said recently that the Wolverine ticket office has never
had more requests for season tickets.
I guess the increase in ticket prices didn't scare too
many people away. Either that, or more people decided
they wanted to be at Michigan Stadium in-person the
next time Bo slams his head-set on the turf.
- Kudos go out to Wolverine swimmer Mike
Barrowman, who just set a new world-record in the
200-meter breast-stroke.
" Answer: 1898.
" I guess "piazzas" were more appealing to Danny
Ferry than winters in San Diego.
The Sand Diego Clippers lost the services of top
draft choice Danny Ferry when he signed a contract to
play for an Italian team for an estimated one million
dollars.
I guess I'd take the money and run to Italy before I
played for a good college team which masquerades as a
professional basketball team.
Ferry's reason for going overseas was the wealth of
talent San Diego already employs. Sounds like Ferry
was worried about competition from players who
haven't yet helped San Diego make it in the NBA.
If I were Danny Ferry, the thought of competing for
a job with the likes of Joe Wolf and Kenny Norman
might send shivers through my spine.
That is if I had to play with a hand tied behind my
back.
- Boxer Mitch "Blood" Green is suing Mike Tyson
for $25 million because Tyson allegedly reneged on an
agreement made after a back-alley altercation to fight
Green.
Sounds like Green has finally found the only area
where he has a chance against the champ. _
