Good and evil.
Life and death.
Beauty and ugliness.
Summer and winter.
Joy and misery.
Roses and Cotton.
Michigan and Ohio State.
The Game is one day away.
For the first time since 1980,
the annual struggle between
Michigan (6-1 in the Big Ten, 9-1
overall) and Ohio State (7-0, 9-2)
means everything it did in the days
of the Big Two, Little Eight.

the loser goes to the toilet bowl
(actually the Cotton Bowl).
"It may be the game of the
decade," said Michigan quarterback
Jim Harbaugh, who made headlines
earlier in the week when he
guaranteed a Wolverine win. "It's
going to be a war from beginning
"The teams are ev'etily matched
and they have a lot to play for. It's
everything we want at this point.
;It's a one game season."
FOR HARBAUGH and 12
other seniors, Saturday's game at
Ohio State will be their last chance
to get to the Rose Bowl. In 1983,
eleven of those seniors were redshirt
freshmen and didn't play.
"I know what kind of guys are
on this team," said Harbaugh.
"They come back. You can go up
and down the line. When times are
the toughest, we play our best. I
know how we are going to react."
For Michigan head coach Bo
Schembechler, a victory at
Columbus will not only send his
team to Pasadena, it will make him
the winningest coach in Michigan
football history with 166 wins.

"By asking the regents to approve of this

are now feeling pressure from everywhere."

According to Mhenchow, if the assembly
did decide to include PIRGIM in its funding,
it would have to present a proposal to the

from the regents this spring.
Some assembly members say they are
frustrated by PIRGIM's hesitancy in
outlining their expenses. "They haven't even
given us their budget yet," said Eric
Schnaufer, an MSA official.

President-elect John Pantowich
and his running mate, Michael

NELSON, a current member of
the executive committee, said he is
optimistic about the coming year.
"We feel very fortunate that we
have been elected," he said.
Neither Nelson nor Effective
member Barb Eisenberger, a newly-
elected executive committee
member, forsee any party-related
tension on the committee. "Basic -
ally SAID has the same goals as we
do," Eisenberger said. "We weren't
really running against each other."
The Executive Committee,
composed of only students, serves
as a liason between LSA students
and the LSA administration.
Effective presidential candidate
Joe Forcier attributed SAID's
victory to its organization. "They
worked the polls better than we did.
Their people were at the polls
passing out flyers - we weren't,"
SAID (Students for Academic
and Institutional Development) has
been a dominant force on the LSA
Student Government since the
party's inception in 1979, and some
of the party's success undoubtedly
stems from its longevity.
Six of the 11 people on the
SAID slate, including Pantowich
and Nelson, were incumbents.
SAID incumbents Jason Feingold,
Debbie Feiwell, Kevin Fox, and
Gregg Grauer were also elected, as
were SAID newcomers Stu Harris,
Amy Kushen, Del Sanders, Lori
Shanfeld, and Phil Wolf.
