The objective: To progress, by evasion and if need be, collision.






Paul Knight, the head of anesthesiology at the
medical school, epitomizes the battered warrior of
the rugby battlefield.

State in Michigan
stadium, the Michigan
rugby squad was fighting
a war in the trenches-
Elbel Field. Rugby
players favor the "pitch"
over the gridiron, the
muddy, torn up earth over
the clean plastic tartan
turf. They have no armor
or padding. There are no
time-outs, and only two
substitutions are
allowed. There is only one
referee. But there is a
love for the game that
protects rules and
traditions. "I love the
game, the guys, the
comeraderie," said
Darcy Hunter. It isn't
that these guys are Bo's
rejects. Explains Alumnus
and rugby veteran Fergie
Lars, "We're too smart
to play football."
