The Best
(and Worst)
of.Wolverine
Sports
By Adam Schefter
Like any other year, this one had its special moments
that will not soon be forgotten. Here's a look back at the
best of, the worst of, and everything else that stood out as
the most memorable moments from Michigan's past year in
sports.
BEST ATHLETE: Jamie Morris
The 5-7 senior tailback assaulted the Wolverine record
book game by game to become Michigan's all-purpose
career yardage leader.tOn a more successful team,pMorris
who rushed for 1,469 yards in 1987, would have challenged
for the Heisman Trophy.
BEST PLAY: John Kolesar's touch-
down catch in the Hall of Fame Bowl
A Michigan bowl victory? Believe it.
With less than a minute remaining in the game, quarter-
back Demetrius Brown found Kolesar in the corner of the
endzone for the victory. Both players compared the fourth-
down play to basketball moves. "I had a step on the corner-
back and the ball kind of hung up and all I had to do was go
up like it was a rebound," said Kolesar. "It was just like
hitting a jumpshot. I just shredded the zone," said Brown.
Maybe Bill Frieder should starting writing letters to these
guys.

HOUSE-SIZE HOAGIE
According to a Daily advertisement, President Fleming's
Open House this week was to feature a 40-foot submarine
sandwich on his lawn. Well, not really. Apparently, a picture
of a cheese hoagie fell off a Sgt. Peppers ad and,
coincidentally, onto the ad for the Open House. The
President's office only called us three times to complain.
OBJECTIVE REPORTING PRIZE
When former presidential candidate Richard Gephardt came
to campus, The Daily naturally assigned a reporter to cover the
story. Unfortunately, that reporter was a member of the
campus Students for Gephardt group. We didn't realize this
until after readers noticed that the story said 1200 people
attended the speech, when really there were 500, tops.
WHERE DID THAT QUOTE COME
FROM?
A quote from Women's Basketball Coach Bud VanDeWege
mysteriously wound up at the end of a story about how the
absence of a new University President affects searches for a
new Athletic Director and a new Chief Financial Officer. "I'm
disappointed that we lost," VanDeWege said, "but certainly not
discouraged."
THE "SPENDING TOO MUCH TIME
PROTESTING" AWARD
A photograph that ran with a story about protests against
LSA Dean Peter Steiner showed one protestor holding a sign
that read "Our people united will never be deafeted. We are
UCAR." So, let's get this straight - you can't be united
unless you can hear?
I CERTAINLY HOPE SO!
The one-liners in our Inside Box are supposed to pique
readers' interest so they will turn to the stories we "tease"
there. But one night we weren't sure what was happening on
the Arts page, so, instead of announcing what act would be at
the Blind Pig or what new music group is shooting up the

-l
to
the
ress!t
charts, the tease read, "Arts provides entertainment." What's
next? "Sports provides athletics"? "Opinion provides rhetoric"?
HEADLINES, HEADLINES, HAVE WE
GOT HEADLINES
The sports page, and the Extras column are noted for their
inventive, creative, and sometimes suggestive headlines. Here
are a few favorites:
-"Michigan flushes Peay at Crisler" about the Michigan
basketball victory over perennial powerhouse, Austin Peay.
-"Coaches blast Bucks for booting bruised Bruce; Bo bitter"
about reaction to the firing of Ohio State football coach Earle
Bruce. Try saying that one ten times fast!
-"Diligent dog discovers den of dastardly, devouring
demons" about a dog who ferrets out termites at the Grand Ole
Opry.
""Gilette gels after close shave" a feature story on Michigan
football placekicker Mike Gilette.
."Second supernatural sighting of savior seen on soybean
silo," about an Ohio resident who claims to have seen an
image of Jesus on the side of a silo. It is, after all, Ohio.
-"'Fifth force' finds feathers faster, fuels ferocious fight"
about a discovery that there might be a fifth force in physics
that would lead to the result that a feather would fall faster than
an iron ball.

By Alan Paul

For a second year, we've gritted our teeth, held our
breath, and asked our readers what they liked and disliked
about the Daily and Weekend magazine. Here's the low-
down.
Weekend Magazine's most popular feature, according to
our respondents, is The List, our weekly happenings guide.
We'd like to think this is due this year's new and improved
model, featuring the places and times of first-run films,
which many singled out as their favorite aspect of the List.
Unfortunately, we are sometimes off with our movie times.
We're sorry, but they're just the times the theaters gave us.
"Off The Wall," the weekly column of graffiti from
campus walls, desks, carrels, and occasionally Alvin's bar in
Detroit finished a very, very strong second. Weekend
columnist John Shea evidently has a loyal campus follow-
ing, finishing third. Many readers also liked the music and
film pages, cover stories, and Sketchpad, our weekly Fred
Zinn cartoon.

Four people like "everything," and we thank them.
In light voting, there was a three way tie between "too
short" (thank you), cover stories (Ugh!), and the fashion is-
sue for the magazine's least popular features. Record reviews
were unpopular with five people, while four found "nothing"
to dislike about Weekend. Several people miss former
columnist John Logie.
There was also a three way tie for the Daily's most
popular feature between columnist Fat Al, the crossword
puzzle, and the Bloom county comic strip.
"Hey, man, it's harder than cleaning a trout with your
teeth to beat syndication," Fat Al said. "But I gave them a
run for their money."
We are also glad to see our readers are so hungry for
news, with "Campus coverage" coming in a close fourth.
Classifieds, editorials, the sports page, and the price (the ef-
fort it takes to lift the paper out of the box) also received
significant support. Well, you definitely can't beat the price.
Once again, four people liked "everything" about the
Daily while others found it "provocative," enjoyed getting
