Dreisbach
to have
surgery on
hand again
From Staff Reports
For Scott Dreisbach, a bad situa-
tion just got worse.
The quarterback, who has been side-
lined since September with a season-
ending hand injury, will undergo sur-
gery tomorrow at the Indiana Hand
Center in Indianapolis, according to
an announcement made yesterday by
Michigan coach Lloyd Carr.
The outpatient reconstructive sur-
gery, which will be
the second opera-
tion on
Dreisbach's hand,
comes as a result
' of the unique na-
ture and severity
.7of the injury.
Team physician
Dr. Gerald
Drelsbach O'Connor and
University hand
specialist Dr. Dean Louis consulted
with Dr. Bill Kleinman in making the
decision. Louis and Kleinman are
among the nation's leading hand spe-
cialists.
The physicians' both agree that
Dreisbach should undergo the sur-
gery, then spend the weekend at home
in Mishawaka, Ind. He will return to
Ann Arbor for classes on Monday.
Dreisbach, who was originally
scheduled to return from the injury
after 'our to six weeks, injured his
right thumb and wrist when he banged
them on a teammate's helmet during
practice.
Following the operation, Dreisbach
will wear a cast on his right hand for
six weeks. His goal is to be available
for spring football drills in March.
Dreisbach, who beat out sophomore
Brian Griese for the starting quarter-
back spot this fall, started the first
four games of the season for the Wol-
verines. Michigan was 4-0 when the
injury ended his season.
Dreisbach had completed 56 of 106
passes, good for 850 yards and three
touchdowns.

The Russians are
coming ... to Crisler
Taylor to make his season debut tonight

By Paul Barger
Daily Basketball Writer
The Michigan men's basketball team has its
final tune-up tonight when it takes on the Rus-
sian Select Team at Crisler Arena.
The Wolverines begin the real season next
Wednesday against DePaul in the preseason
NIT.
Tonight's contest marks the season debut of
Michigan sophomore forward Maurice Taylor.
Taylor was suspended for the first exhibition
game against Athletes in Action after missing a
class.
Many feel that Taylor, last season's Big Ten
Freshman of the Year, will have to step into a
leadership role for the Wolverines to be suc-
cessful.
"Mo's got to play well," Michigan coach
Steve Fisher said. "Mo's capable of being our
best player, but he's got to work for that."
The Siberian team should not pose much of a
challenge for Taylor and his teammates.
In its first game of the season, the Siberian
team was handily beaten by Michigan State, 80-
58. The Spartans led early, 25-4, before begin-
ning wholesale substitutions.
In that contest, Siberia was led by Evgueny
Solovarov with 21 points.
Even though tonight's game is a mismatch on
paper, Fisher cherishes the opportunity to get

some games in before the real season starts.
"(Against Athletes in Action) I thought all of
(our players) played well offensively," Fisher
said. "None of them played well defensively.
I'm ready to play someone other than our-
selves."
The Wolverines defeated Athletes in Action
101-90 a week ago, despite being without the
services of Taylor or freshman Louis Bullock,
who was out with the flu. Bullock has practiced
this week and will play tonight.
Evgueny Ochtchetko and Vitaly Strebkov
lead the Siberians, along with Dmitry
Janouchko, who is part of the European Junior
National Champions.
Tonight's game is scheduled to tip-off at 7:30
p.m.

Mo's got to play well. Mo's capable of being
our best player."
- Steve Fisher
Michigan basketball coach,
on sophomore Maurice Taylor, who plays his first game of the season tonight

Michigan sophomore forward Jerod Ward will look to follow up his 24-point showing last week tonight
against the Russian Select Team. Ward shot 4-7 from beyond the three-point line.

Jump on the Wildcat bandwagon

-and hope it doesn't crash

fought it.
I told myself it was a fluke.
"There is no way the Northwest-
ern Wildcats will keep winning
football games," I said.
"C'mon, these are the Mildcats," I
laughed.

It just wouldn't last. It couldn't.
It has?
Yes, it has. Nine games into the
season, the Wildcats have lost only
one game, and they should be
undefeated.
Their only loss came in game two

when Miami (Ohio), with the help of
a bungled punt, beat them.
Consider this: Florida State, Notre
Dame, Colorado, Michigan and Penn
State are all
ranked below the
No. 5 Wildcats.
If Joe Paterno
and Bo
Schembechler
were dead, they'd
be rolling over in
their graves.
Not to sound IRYAN
condescending, WHITE
but if you were to White on
write the entire Target
history of
Northwestern football, you might
barely be able to finish that blue book
that was left half-empty during your
history midterm.
But that was then, and this is a
good football team.
I hesitate to say it, but the 'Cats are
for real.
There - it has been said: North-

western is good, and they deserve to
be ranked fifth in the country.
And, in spite of the fact that it will
probably throw the world off its axis,
the Wildcats will be going to a bowl
game.
Not just any bowl, though.
Northwestern still has a shot at the
Rose Bowl. If Ohio State loses and
the Wildcats win out, it will be purple
in Pasadena.
If Northwestern wins out and the
Buckeyes don't lose, the Wildcats
could well find themselves in a Bowl
Alliance bowl.
Can you imagine Northwestern in
the Orange Bowl?
Northwestern in the game that in
the past has consistently determined
the national champion?
It's crazy, but you know what? It's
kind of fun.
In fact, I have to admit, the 'Cats
have won me over.
Make room on the bandwagon, I'm
coming aboard.
They work hard, they play disci-

I

plined football and they beat Notre
Dame.
How can you possibly argue with
any of those things - especially the
last?
About the only way they could top
their win over the Irish would be to
beat Florida or Florida State, which
could happen on Jan. 1.
You never know, especially this
season.
Better yet, how about a Nebraska-
Northwestern matchup in the Fiesta
Bowl for No. 1.
It couldn't happen, but it would be
fun.
Yep, I'm a Northwestern fan.
I'm wearing the purple shirt, I've
got the purple hat and I don't even
like purple.
Now, I've never been to Evanston,
and I didn't want to go to Northwest-
ern, but I know someone who does.
That's enough for me. The
Wildcats are my team.
I'm going to ask my boss tomorrow
if I can start covering the Wildcats -
and for a raise. I'm not expecting
either, but you never know.
Before I get too carried away here,
though, Northwestern is favored this
week against Iowa.
The oddsmakers seem to think the
Wildcats are eight points better than
the Hawkeyes.
It's going to be a relatively new
situation for Northwestern. The
school is rarely favored, and, when it
was against Miami (Ohio), the
Wildcats still lost.
Uh-oh.
Will the 'Cats be able to handle the
pressure of not being dogs? Could
being the favorite lead to inflated
heads?
Probably not, since most of them
probably have too much astrophysics
homework to do and not enough time
to read the paper.
It doesn't really matter, though.
With the exception of the Chicago
Cubs, it's fun to see the perennial
losers win for once, even if they lose
a couple.
So step aside and make room on
this bandwagon - I'll even drive ifI
have to.
I just hope this thing doesn't crash
now that I'm aboard.
