45-14 rout of Illinois. With ABC cameras
monitoring Michigan Stadium, more than
half of the crowd left before the end of
the game. The stands were emptying'
out so quickly during the second half,
that the only matter in question was not
whether the Wolverines would win, but
rathr, would anyone be left to hear the
final gun.
Another black mark against
Michigan fans this year is an apparent
change in behavior. In past years
Wolverine fans have been very faithful
prompting Davis" to say, "Michigan
fans are very loyal. Sometimes when a
team is not playing up to par their fans
turn against them quickly. I never
found that to be true at Michigan."
Sadly enough, this fan loyalty has not
always been evident this year, as wit-
nessed by the fan reaction to Rich
Hewlett earlier this year. Taking the
position that Hewlett was unjustly
booed is Hanlon.
"It hurt to see them react
(negatively) to a young man who has
done a good job. Really there was no
reason. He'd not really done anything
that bad."
If - these supporters are to
avoid being below Ohio
State fans in the future by players such
as Jim Smith, they must continue tur-
ning out in great masses, while
avoiding the booing of their own players
and only showing partial support for
the team by leaving a game before it's
over.
