With Michigan facing off this
weekend against Michigan State,
there is bad and good news. And
plenty of it.
Some bad news first. The
Spartans, defending NCAA
champions, enter the weekend series
in first place in the CCHA. MSU
is coming off a split against
Illinois-Chicago last weekend,
when it suffered its only loss
against nine wins. Not exactly the
best time for head coach Red
Berenson's squad to start its climb
in the standings.
THE GOOD news is that when
fierce rivals like these two square
off, anything is possible.
"Whenever Michigan plays
Michigan State, there is always
excitement in the air," said

Berenson. "It used to be we were
playing MSU, but now we are
playing the defending national
champions and the first place team.
We've got everything to gain and it
should bring out the best in our
"This is always a dogfight," said
Michigan State head coach Ron
Mason. "I know Michigan will
play their best and work their
hardest. It's the toughest game of
this year for us."
BAD NEWS: Michigan State
has talent spread all around. The
Spartans feature a strong offense
led by center Kevin Miller (7-18-
25), right wing Mitch Messier (10-
11-21), and center Bill Shibicky
(13-6-19). Backing them up on
defense is last year's second team
All-America Don McSween and the
solid Tom Tilley.
Goaltending position, however,
is the team's backbone. Bob
Essensa and Norm Foster represent
the finest netminding duo in the
country. Last season, Essensa was
named second-team All-CCHA and
first-team All-Academic. Foster
was chosen to the NCAA All-
to check No.1
This season they have picked up
right where they left off. Essensa
sports a 3.00 goals against average
and Foster a 3.58.
"IT'S THE PART of our team
that we rely on most," said Mason.
"They have the experience and the
talent. It's definitely our strong
The good news is that these
goalies are not invincible. Just ask
Brad Jones, Michigan's leading
"They're definitely top-notch
goalies, but they're definitely not
unbeatable. Good goaltenders are
only as good as the team in front of
them and State's got a good team.
But they're nothing that can't be
beaten. I think we are definitely
going to take them by surprise."
PERHAPS Jones is a little
optimistic for a 3-7 team that is
tied for sixth place in the CCHA
and for the most part has been bad
The good news, however, is that
Michigan has been in all but one of
its games. Out of the10 games,
nine of them have been tied or had a
one-goal margin in the third period.
Six of those games resulted in
losses, two in overtime. A break
here and there would mean the
difference between a few wins and a
few notches in the standings.
But there is still more bad news.
The Wolverines will be shorthanded
on Friday. Jeff Norton, the captain
and leader of the team, will miss
the game due to a suspension he
received for fighting in last
Saturday's game against Ferris
The good news is he'll be back
in uniform on Saturday.
The Wolverines will need him as
they will have all they can handle

Micidgan State at
Michigan State's (5-4, 3-3)
hopes of going to a decent bowl
game crashed to a halt last weekend
when the Spartans were bounced by
Indiana. MSU can still go to some
fleabag bowl if it gets by
Northwestern (2-7, 0-6) this week
and Wisconsin next week.

Illinois at Indiana
After upsetting MSU last week,
Indiana (6-3, 3-3) is entertaining
thoughts of post-season action. If
the Hoosiers can get by Illinois (3-
6, 2-4), they will likely go bowling
for the holidays.
The Illini are coming off an
upset victory over Iowa, about
which Illinois coach Mike White
said, "It almost feels. like we won
the national championship."
