Men tankers prepare for both season and Olympic trials
By Riyaz Bhlmani
For the Daily
The best team on Michigan's campus
does not play on a court or on a field.
The Michigan men's swimming team
competes at Canham Natatorium and
when they hit the water, they hit it hard.
Last year, the Wolverines finished
with a 9-1 record and won the NCAA
Championship. This year, they are ex-
pected to win it all again.
Michigan features a strong team
with six returning All-Americans and
a promising freshman class. Standing
on the pool deck behind these great
swimmers is coach Jon Urbanchek.
Last year Urbanchek was named
NCAA Coach of the Year, after he led
the Wolverines to their 10th consecu-
tive Big Ten title and the national
The 1995-96 swim season opens this
Friday when the Wolverines host Cal-
Berkeley. Last year, the Golden Bears
were ranked fifth in the country.
The Wolverines will be without their
top swimmer, junior Tom Dolan, this
weekend. Last season Dolan won his
second U.S. Swimmer of the Year
award, but he will not compete for the
Wolverines until January. Right now,
he is training for the Olympic trials in
In fact, the team's first priority is the
"We have many swimmers who have
Olympic talent," said Urbanchek. "Their
first goal is to prepare for the trials in
March, and then defending theirNCAA
"We have some big holes to fill on
this team," Urbanchek said. "We don't
have Dolan or last year's star Gustavo
Still, Michigan is returning 14
The international spotlight of Michi-
gan swimming falls on Turkey's Derya
Buyukuncu, 'the Philippines's Ryan
Papa and Canada's Owen von Richter.
"We have a great deal of interna-
tional stars," Urbanchek said, "A num-
ber of them participated in world cham-
pionships and hadatremendous amount
Buyukuncu is Michigan's best in the
backstroke. This All-American's
records include the U.S. Open record in
the 100 meter backstroke and the Turk-
ish national records in the 100- and
Competing in the backstroke with
Buyukuncu is another sophomore
Ryan Papa. His personal accomplish-
ments include Philippine records in
the 100, 200 backstroke and the 100
As a freshman, last season, von Rich-
ter won All-American honors in four
different events. Also, he was the Cana-
dian national champion in the 200 and
Jason Lancaster is another powerful
swimmer who specializes in the
freestyle and the individual medley.
Lancaster owns five Michigan
records and medaled in three events in
the last World University Games in
Joining this tremendous crew of
world-class swimmers is a highly
touted freshman class. Eleven of the
country's best high school talents are
expected to join the squad and main-
tain Michigan's tradition of swim-
ming excellence. Freshmen who are
expected to make an immediate im-
pact are Tom Malchow, Andy Potts
and John Reich.
Malchow comes in as the best high
school swimmer in the state of Minne-
sota last year. He already has interna-
tional experience after a great deal of
success at the World University Games
and the Pan-American Games.
Malchow's classmates Andy Potts
and John Reich have also encountered
national recognition. Potts comes from
New Jersey holding the state records in
the 400 individual medley and the 1500
freestyle. Reich is from Valrico, Fla.,
where he was named 1995 Florida High
School Swimmer of the Year in his
"We have a great deal oftalent on this
team," Urbanchek said. "We're prepar-
ing for the Olympic trials and then we
will defend our title."

Linebacker Jarrett Irons has recorded
59 tackles while Rob Swett has 48.
It will be rough going for the Hoo-
siers on the ground.
Michigan passing offense vs. Indi-
ana passing defense:
The Wolverines have not been im-
pressive this season in the air. Their
196.7 a game average puts them in the
middle of the pack in the Big Ten.
Griese, who threw for just 96 yards
two weeks ago against Northwestern,
or Carr, who struggled in his only ex-
tended playing time last season against
Wisconsin, do not give Michigan much
to look forward to.
The Hoosiers' pass defense is fourth-
best in the league at 102.6 yards per
The Wolverines should be able to
advance through the air against Indi-
ana, but don't look for any spectacular
Indiana passing offense vs. Michi-
gan passing defense:
The Hoosiers have their own prob-
lems at quarterback. Starter Chris
Dittoe injured his knee giving Adam
Greenlee the start last week against
the Hawkeyes. Greenlee, a fifth-year
senior and former walk-on, connected
on 12 of 29 passes for 11i1 yards in his
first career start.
The Wolverines give up 99.6 yards a
game in the air. They shouldn't be tested
by Indiana, though.
The Hoosiers average 157.3 yards
per game, good enough for dead last in
Alan Sutkowski is second in the con-
ference with a 43.1 yards per punt aver-
age for the Hoosiers. Placekicker Bill
Manolopoulos, an All-Big Ten pick in
1993, has hit on seven of 10 field goals
For the Wolverines, Nate DeLong
continues to be impressive and
placekicker Remy Hamilton has hit on
10 of 13 tries.
The Wolverines have plenty of
choices when it comes to a return man.
Toomer and Hayes are capable ofbreak-
ing big returns at any moment.
Indiana has Ajamu Stoner and Eric
Matthews returning punts and kickoffs.
Michigan has a decided advantage5
in many aspects of the game. The Wol-
verines should have no problem mov-
ing the ball against Indiana. It remaim
to be seen, though, if Michigan cat
finish off a drive by putting it in th
Indiana's offense should suffer at
much as it already has, against the Michi
gan defense. The Hoosiers have no
been able to top 13 points in four o
their six games this season.
The Wolverines have won 20 of th
last 21 meetings between the teams
They'll make it 21 tomorrow.
Prediction: Michigan 24, Indiana 1

Indiana will also be missing Batts'
3.3 yards per carry. Batts is out with a
knee injury, which he suffered Oct. 7
Sean Glover will take the spots va-
cated in the backfield by Smith and
Glover stepped up for the Hoosiers
last week, rushing for 199 yards on 48
carries against the Hawkeyes.
Adam Greenlee will be getting just
his second career start Saturday
against the Wolverines. His first start
came last week at Iowa when he re-
placed Dittoe, who is out with a knee
injury, at quarterback.
Even banged up, though, the Hoo-
siers impress Carr.
"Indiana, despite some unbeliev-
able injury problems, was very im-
pressive at Iowa," he said. "They're a
typical Bill Mallory team that plays
with a lot of emotion."
As for Mallory, he knows he has a
tough challenge if he wants to beat
Michigan and pick up Indiana's first
"They're a typical Michigan foot-
ball team," Mallory said. "They're
tough, talented, well-coached and play
with a lot of pride.
"We're going to have to play, with-
out question, the best game of our
season if we want to win."

Michigan faced a difficult gami
against the Flyers, but managed to pul
out the victory before taking on th

a game of quarters.

Michigan easily handled the Wild
cats and the Eagles to close out th
weekend, but the Wolverines felt the:
could have performed at a higher level
"We did what we had to do to win,
junior Louis Lambert said. "But w
definitely could have played better."
Over the weekend, Lambert led th
team with 15 goals.
Senior John Miedler topped the Wol
verines with 12 assists. Juniors Mal
Maasdam and Steve Gilbert chipped i
six and seven assists, respectively.
Michigan hopes to keep improvin
to solidify its spot among some of th
nation's best club teams.
"Any team wants to play as a tear
and win and (we) want to take home th
Big Ten title," Lambert said.
This weekend, the Wolverines hea

"To me, the importance of this tour
