One week down, ten to go and already
things down here at the Daily are
starting to heat up. Hats off to Don
Canham, Michigan's Director of
Athletics got the special guests off to a
smooth start going 8-2. Writers Dougb

Canham and Bo's little favorite, Katie
Blackwell, wasn't far behind nailing
seven of her ten selections.

week were obviously well thought out,
as the fifth year coach returned his
selection sheet marked up with a few
short side comments/analyses of some
of the games.
For example, Frieder went with
Michigan over Washington noting,
"Battle of two coaching greats (Don
James and Bo Schembechler), but the
game at Michigan."
Frieder took Miami-Fla. over Purdue
reasoning, "Miami won't lose two in a

row."
Undoubtedly, however,
Frieder's juiciest quip was for
the Notre Dame-Michigan
State battle, "Wow, what a
game," wrote Frieder, "State
in a close one!" Good luck,
coach.
