lots of experience and ability and

sThe Wildcats' one glaring de-
fensive weakness is at the right
linebacker spot, where regular
Mike Morkin is out with a should-

is in his spot, which could see a
lot of action if Casey sends
Doughty or Seymour into his area
for a flare pass or two.

Michigan has in its favor it is an
unusual amount of depth at all
Northwestern is very thin, and
a key injury early in the game
could spell disaster. But the Wild-

year there won't be much oppor-

There used to be a theory that

this noble tradition with odd
moments of revelry, laughter,
gloom and celebration in honor
of occasions to obscure and

we are busy moving from a life
of many feet and caterpillar
certainty to a splash of color
and wings. Metamorphosi fools
no one any of the time, but its
kind of fun. In the process we
do what comes to mind, among
which can usually be found:

last year (remember spring?).
Sunday, 1 1 a.m., the sharing

the place! Things dreampt up
