'IM Molars dr

The band was there. So were the
cheerleaders. There were the usual
pre-game festivities, including plenty
of food, drink, and honking car horns.
After all, it was the most important
game of the year. It was homecoming
day 1985.
But this was a homecoming of a dif-
ferent sort. It wasn't the mighty
Wolverines battling the Hoosiers of
rindiana. They didn't play at Michigan
Stadium on Saturday afternoon, but
rather at Mitchell Field on Tuesday
nlight. "Go Blue," cheers were sub-
stituted with "Go Maroon and Silver,"

and the "announced" attendance was
about sixty-five.
THEnTEAM IS the Molars, a group
of dental students who last year
decided that an IM football team
would be a good way to break the
monotony and burden of school work.
"We thought it would be a good way to
get the class together and have some
fun. We all get caught up in our work
and this is a good way to go out and
have some fun," said club manager
Frank D'Amico.
And fun they surely had. The pre-
game festivities started at 7:00 p.m.

ill opp
with the first Molar Banquet. Besides
a dinner served for about forty Molar
fans, votes were cast for King Molar
and Queen Pre-Molar, who were to be
announced at halftime. Following
dinner was the procession to the field._
Leading a thirty car entourage was
the Molar kazoo marching band, led
by the Grand Marshal who also sub-
stituted as head cheerleader. He
directed the procession with perhaps
the most important item of the
evening - the tap for the keg.
So what is the reason for this mad-
ness? "We started out last year just to
have some fun," said head coach and
team founder Dennis Hartley.- "It
gives us a chance to get instructors
involved. They realize how hard,

onents with humor

everyone works, and it gives us all a
chance to break the tension. This year
Frank (D'Amico) and I decided we
should really build up the whole idea.
We've been planning this
homecoming for almost three weeks
~now." The decision on the exact date
was not exactly a hard one. "I looked
at my calendar, saw when we had no
tests, and said, "this is homecoming."
said Hartley.
THE TEAM encountered some
minor internal problems along the
way. "Pat Reed started the team last
year," said D'Amico, "but we soon
went 0-2, so we kicked him upstairs to
general manager.
In the Molars case, though, winning
is not really the name of the game.

"Obviously we're out there for fun,"
,said Hartley. "Our motto is 'it just
doesn't matter.''
"We haven't won a game in two
years," said D'Amico. "Unless you
count a forfeit."
Probably the most serious spec-
tators of the evening were the male
cheerleaders. When asked why they
would participate in such activities,
the unanimous response seemed to be
"free beer."
Although the game was very laid

back, it was not without its emotional
moments. The essence of the evening
was captured by Hartley in his Knute
Rocknesque speech: "Guys you might
laugh at these shirts right now, but
think, about ten years along the line
when they're sitting in the bottom of
your closet. And remember how much
you put along the line to be a Molar.
Now remember, we've never lost a
homecoming game before. But then
again this is our first so forget that."
Oh, and about the final scre, it just
doesn't matter, does it?
