Mills hair style...
... just doesn't cut It

By ADAM SCHEFTER
Michigan had a new look last
night when they came out of the
locker room to bang heads with
Bowling Green.
No, it wasn't that Steve Stoyko
got a starting assignment o r
anything of that sort.
Terry Mills had shaved his hair,
or lack of, after trying to get a point
across to basketball fans all across
the country. As they say, easy come,
easy go. He got rid of the upside
down triangle patch of hair on the
back of his head. And this reporter
was very disappointed that he did not
get to witness the haircut in person.
"I was getting a lot of compli-
ments on it," Mills said. "Every
time I would go to the bench, I
would sit down and all these fans,
these drunk fans, would sit behind
me and give me a hard time."
If you weren't lucky enough to
witness the hairdo on ESPN this
past weekend, rest assured that it
would have made the leather jacket
chain gangs in Soho proud of Mills.
The cut was a cross between Ms.
Pac Man getting a nice chunk off of
Mills' scalp and Eddie Munster's
stylish look. It had Dick Vitale, he
of the Curly Neal 'do, drooling.
My first reaction was that this
could be the next haircut craze to
sweep the country, a la the flat top. I
had visions dancing under my scalp.
Already I was imaging Coach

Frieder, one who so highly empha-
sizes doing things as a team,
donning the new look. If Bobby
Knight can pull his team off the
court in the middle of a game, and
the stubble-headed Jerry Tarkanian
can recruit criminals to come play in
Vegas, then certainly there would be
nothing morally wrong with Frieder
going "punk."
Then the rest of the players would
join in the fun and eventually all the
fans would catch on to the newest
snip-snap. I would personally take
the initiative to spearhead the drive.
It would be the hottest thing since
the Air Joubert basketball shoes.
And I'm sure the barber in Ann
Arbor would only have been too

happy to accommodate everyone's
needs.
Let's face it. Michigan's football
program is a national landmark. Al
football fanatics know that Michig
Stadium holds well over a 100,000.
They know about the tradition
surrounding those maize and blue
helmets and they all know about the
living legend himself, Bo.
But Crisler Arena? Certainly the
seating capacity doesn't compare to
the Carrier- Dome. The uniforms
don't leave a lasting impression like
the powder blue ones in North4
Carolina. And Frieder? Well, he's
not a legend. At least not yet.
The haircut fever could have put
Ann Arbor up there with Blooming-
ton, Chapel Hill, and Louisville as
the capitals of college basketball.
But Frieder shattered all my
dreams when he demanded that Mills
remove the work of art.
"If I tell you to do something,
you do it or you're gonna be gone,"
Frieder said. "I told Terry to shave it
off. I think kids get labeled. He's a
good kid and I don't want stoops out
.on the street discussing whether they
should have a hair cut like that."
Stoops like me.
I guess we'll all have to wait o
the Final Four for that nationa
notoriety.

Bowling
Green in
Crisler
opener

(Continued from Page 1)
An alley-oop dunk by Bowling
Green's Lamon Pippin seemed to
ignite the Wolverines. Pippin's
points gave the Falcons a 10-8 lead,
but Grant came back with two quick
baskets from in the lane, the latter
on a behind-the-back pass from
Mills.
From there on, the Wolverines
held their lead, rarely stretching it,
but never letting the game get close,
either.
"The thing that disappoints me
the most is we didn't sustain and put
them away," said Frieder.
Bowling Green was able to cut

the lead to 13, at 68-55, with less
than 10 minutes in the game, but
newcomers Rumeal Robinson and
Sean Higgins answered with consec-
utive three-pointers, which Grant
followed with a lay-up to make it
76-55.
The only thing left to worry
about was whether the Wolverines
would cover the 20-point betting
line. They did, barely, when Mike
Griffin laid in the ball at the buzzer,
stretching the final lead to 21.
Most of the fans found ways to
entertain themselves, however,
chanting "air ball" every time Bowl-
ing Green's Dale Turquist touched

the ball (he put up a three-pointer
that was decidedly left ofthe rim),
cheering for several Wolverine jams,

and welcoming Steve Stoyko into
the game with nearly five minutes
left.

Nex, please
