Scratch the slate clean. The Big
Ten football season has arrived.
After four weeks of inter-
conference play, the run for the
roses begins Saturday. Nineteenth-
ranked Michigan (1-2) opens its Big
Ten schedule against Wisconsin in
Madison (Camp Randall Memorial
Stadium, 2:05 p.m. EST).
"I think we're ready for the Big
Ten," Wolverine quarterback
Michael Taylor said. "I feel that
deep down in our hearts, everyone
wants to win the Big Ten
championship and go on to play in
the Rose Bowl."
THE BADGERS' second-
year coach Don Morton said, "If I
was to bet the farm today, I would
bet on Michigan."
Knowledgeable fans would not
even bet the tractor on Wisconsin
(0-3). The Badgers, who have not
enjoyed a winning season since
1984, suffered home losses to
Western Michigan and Northern
Illinois in the season's first two
weeks. Their third loss came
against Miami (Fla.) last Saturday

football on Saturday, and it.

cause for celebration in 1988.
"We're 0-3, and we've got to
get some things resolved with our
football team, particularly from an
offensive standpoint," Morton
TURNOVERS have killed
the Badgers. In three games they
have coughed up the ball an
astonishing 15 times. By
comparison, Taylor has yet to
throw an interception, and the
Wolverines have lost just two
When asked what has caused his
team's rash of turnovers, Morton
said: "I wish I was smart enough

offense runs out of a unique
formation called the split-back
veer, which incorporates the
option, a type of running play.
"THE CLASSROOM time
we spend when we play a veer-
option team is tremendous,"
Wolverine defensive tackle Mark
Messner said. "You got to have
assignments down perfectly to be
able to stop that kind of offense."
Quarterback Tony Lowery, the
conference's freshman of the year
in 1987, runs the show for the
Badgers. Senior running back
Marvin Artley (6-foot-1, 225
pounds) ranks among the Big
Ten's best. Last season he rushed
for 975 yards and averaged 6.5
yards a carry.
Wisconsin has put more
emphasis on its passing attack this
year, giving the Badgers a more
diverse offense. Lowery has
completed 49-of-86 passes. Tight
end Brian Anderson leads the
Badgers in pass receptions with
All-Big Ten candidate Todd
Nelson anchors an offensive line

Against Miami's high-powered
offense, it allowed just one
touchdown. "We know something
about (Miami's) skill offensively,
and they did a good job shutting
them down," said Schembechler,
who has lost to Wisconsin only
once in his 20 years at Michigan.
The Badgers' inside linebackers,
David Wings and Malvin Hunter,
lead the team in tackles. Free
safety Greg Thomas has played
well in the secondary, intercepting
two passes and forcing two
Sophomore Rob Mehring took

weekend and kicked his first field
goal as a Badger. He replaced Rich
Thompson, who was lost for the
year with a perforated ulcer.

'M' faces two Big Ten
BY DAVID HYMAN
Crisler Arena is preparing to
open its doors for the 1988-1989
Big Ten season. Basketball season
tickets have been on sale this week,
but you will not be able to use
your receipt to gain admission to
Crisler this weekend. Ticket-takers
will be looking for those who are
holding volleyball tickets.
The women's volleyball team
opens its home Big Ten schedule
tonight and tomorrow night against
Indiana and Ohio State,
After opening the conference
schedule with losses to
Northwestern and Wisconsin on the
road, the Wolverines are excited to
play at home.
"WE'RE LOOKING forward
to it," said Michigan coach Joyce
Davis. "The players enjoy playing
in Crisler and it has made life
easier. We did not need to travel
Thursday, thus enabling us to
practice an extra day."
This extra practice is exactly
what the Wolverines needed, as
Michigan will be forced to make a
lineup change with the injury to
senior captain Marie Ann Davidson.
She will be out indefinitely with a
Indiana brings a 1-0 conference
record to Ann Arbor for tonight's
game. The Hoosiers, with an
overall record of 8-3, have five
returning starters from last year's
team, which finished fourth in the
Big Ten (10-8).
Leading the Hoosier attack is
senior outside hitter, Liz
Armbrustmacher. She was named
Big Ten Player-of-the-Week after
Indiana's win last week in
Columbus against the Buckeyes.
D A VIS knows the defense
must face up to the challenge
Armbrustmacher presents. "We need
to concentrate on her," said Davis.
Indiana coach Tom Shoji knows
it will be difficult to repeat last
week's win on the road. "It is tough
to play on the road, especially when
you don't know much about your
opponent. We know their statistics
and record, but not much else."
Tomorrow night, the Wolverines
welcome Ohio State to Crisler. The
Buckeyes are led by Linda Mangus
and Dawn McDougall. Mangus,
named All-Big Ten Honorable
Mention in 1987,- finished fifth in
kills per game in conference play
last year, with 3.86 per game.
McDougall, highly recruited by
Michigan last year, has received
plenty of playing time this year and
has been a force at the net.
MICHIGAN has been
preparing to counteract both
opponents' strengths as well as
getting ready to open the Big Ten
Sometimes a team responds
positively when one of its star
players goes down with an injury

attitudes of Islam toward
Jews, not territorial disputes, are the real
roots of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
The following words of holy hatred blare forth from mosques in Gaza, Judea and
Samaria (West Bank) and throughout the Arab world today:
"It is outrageous for the Jews, traditionally kept as protected inferiors in
Islamic lands, to defeat the Arabs, have their own State, and cause the
contraction of the World of Islam."
- Sheikh Nadim al-Jisr of Lebanon
"The resurrection of the dead will not come until the Muslims will
with the Jews, and the Muslims will kill them ... the trees and rocks
say, 'O Muslim, O Abdullah, here is a Jew behind me, come and
"They [the Jews] spread evil in the land..."
- Koran, Surah V, v.62-66
"Allah fighteth against them [the Jews]. How perverse they are."
- Koran, Surah IX, v.30
Islamic legal doctrine holds that the Jewish State of Israel diminishes the World of
Islam and that Israel must be destroyed to achieve peace.
There are indeed passages in the Koran that extol virtues of belief in one God, charity,
peace, and love. These are not the passages currently being cited by Islamic leaders.
We urge Muslim leaders to forgo messages of hate, destruction, and violence against
Jews and Israel in favor of peace, brotherhood and tolerance.
