'M' TO FACE F(
Spikers:
BY DAVID HYMAN
The biggest challenge for the women's volleyball
team this season is upon them. With an 0-7
conference record (10-11 overall), the Wolverines need
a victory this weekend when they take on Big Ten
rivals Illinois and Purdue.
Despitetheir record, the Wolverines remain
confident. "I expect us to get our first conference win
this weekend," said coach Joyce Davis.
The Illini (7-0 Big Ten, 12-3 overall), the
defending Big Ten champions, come into Friday's
game ranked fifth in the nation.
"We have our work cut out for us," said Davis "If
our blocking continues and we serve the ball hard, we
can at least let them know we're on the other side of
the net.,
Illinois is led by 1987 Co-Players-of-the-Year
Mary Eggers and Nancy Brookhart. Eggers, a middle
blocker and two-time All-American, led the Big Ten
in hitting efficiency (.487) last season and is Illinois'
all-time blocking leader. She was also last week's Big
Ten Player-of-the-Week.
Brookhart, also a middle blocker, returns after

'Boss' and Trump:
N.Y.'s nightmare

being selected to the All-Big Ten team in 1987, while
averaging 4.39 kills per game (second in the Big
Ten).
The Boilermakers (2-5, 8-11) on the other hand,
are struggling this season after finishing second in the
conference in 1987. Their only Big Ten wins have
come against Ohio St. and Indiana.
Purdue is led by Debbie McDonald, a member of
the 1987 All-Big Ten team. McDonald leads the
Boilermaker attack with a .242 hitting efficiency and
4.42 kills per game. Becky Kanitz, a defensive
specialist, leads the conference in digs per game
(5.57), and Darcy Orin is responsible for setting the
ball.
"The situation we're in is irrelevant to this
weekend's matches," said Davis. "The team has
practiced well this week and I feel real good going
into this weekend."
The Wolverines are looking to get into that
confident-builder 'W' column and as Davis said:
"We're very close to turning this whole thing
around."

BY LIAM FLAHERTY
If I had my choice to obliterate
one person who has polluted the.
sports pages recently, I would have
a hard time choosing between
George Steinbrenner and Donald
Trump.
Steinbrenner is the older
nemesis. For too many years I've
seen him bully his way onto the
sports pages like an unruly drunk.
But Trump seems intent on making
up for lost time.
Living in New York, I've barely
endured his smugness, his colossal
ego, his unabashed love of the
dollar and all it's trappings. A love
so naked and vulgar that if
expressed in a book or film, shouts
of obscenity would immediately
follow. In the real estate section,
however, it is good business sense.
BUT I could stand that. Let him
build his towers and casinos, all

deified with his name. Let the
pundits speak of a Trump mayoral,
senatorial, even presidential
campaign. I could withstand his
best selling book and he and his
wife crashing the society pages, as
long as he would remain off the
sports pages. Some things in life,,
after all, must remain sacrosanct.
The first ominous shudder came
when Trump purchased the New
Jersey Generals, of the now extinct
United States Football League.
Donald had a new toy. He
immediately made the rounds to
trumpet calls as the saviour of this
infant league.
He would build the Generals as
he built his empire, promptly
acquiring two attractive assets in
runningback Herschel Walker and
quarterback Doug Flutie.
The U.S.F.L., as everyone
knows, has passed on into that
good night. Donald Trump
however, like indigestion, recurring
cancer, and Freddy Krueger, is back.
HE IS currently a "friend and
advisor"to heavyweight champion
Mike Tyson. Tyson, who does
business with Don King and
married Robin Givens, is clearly in
need of some better company.
Trump makes him 0 for 3.
Why does a man of Trump's
means and position feel the need to
raid the arena of sports for self
glorification? The same reason his
compatriot Steinbrenner does.
They're children. Desperate for
attention, insecure despite their
millions, they attempt to make

themselves into what their money
cannot buy.
Take Steinbrenner. He owns the
Yankees and he's the "Boss" as the
tabloids proclaim him. But he's not
a player, which is where he'd trade
his fortune to be. The players are
the game - what people think of
as the Yankees. And Steinbrenner
will not rest until that association
equals him.
His envy is perverted into anger
and tough talk. Look at the players
he traditionally attacks; Reggie
Jackson, Dave Winfield, Don
Mattingly - the stars who are the
polar opposite of Steinbrenner.
So Steinbrenner will go to any
length to upstage the team, no
matter how petty. His latest, firing
manager Lou Piniella in the midst
of the playoffs, is only one more in
a long, long litany.
THERE ARE those who will
say, in response to this diatribe,
"they pay the money, they can do
what they want." This is precisely
the attitude which created these
media monsters in the first place.
I don't expect Steinbrenner to
sell the Yankees anytime soon, nor
do I anticipate Trump exiting the
sports scene, regardless of how
things work out with Tyson.
But I have my fantasy; Trump
and Steinbrenner having a top
secret, high powered meeting in an
empty Trump Tower. The
foundation begins to tremble, the
walls start to shake...
