It was the fifth straight win for an
NFC team, but by far the closest.
The previous four had been by an
average score of 41-14.

Super Bowl win in 10 seasons as
49ers coach. It would be a fitting

goal of the game, a 40-yarder with

start from their own eight with a

But Montana, who was 23 of 36,
je;ablished himself as one of the
;great quarterbacks of the decade on

eight yards to Rice, nine yards to
tight end John Frank and 17 more to
Rice. Then, he hit Roger Craig for

we're going to keep this up as a

Ickey Woods, famed running back and dancer of the
Cincinnati Bengals, is now making his impact on
hockey. After Michigan defeated Ferris State, 4-1,
Saturday to complete a weekend sweep of its CCHA
rival, Todd Copeland, Alex Roberts, and Doug Evans
performed the Ickey Shuffle.
"It was an attempt at the Ickey Shuffle," corrected
Todd Copeland. "I can't say it was as good as Ickey
"We practiced it last (Friday) night. I said to
myself, 'If I score a goal today, I'm going to do the
Ickey Shuffle.' I scored the goal, but I was laughing
too hard I couldn't do the Ickey Shuffle. I saw Al
(Roberts) on the bench going like this (waving his
arms) telling me to do the Ickey Shuffle. I couldn't do
it. So we kinda did something at the end. It didn't even
Copeland and crew have another week to perfect the
moves before facing Ohio State next weekend - in
the state which made Ickey famous.
BROTHER ON BROTHER: Mark Sorensen
returned to action this weekend for the Wolverines,
seeing his first action since a Dec. 17 knee injury. He
was welcomed back to the ice by facing his brother,
first-year forward Kelly Sorensen of the Bulldogs. It
was the first time the two squared off against each
On Friday, Kelly set up Ferris State's only goal
when he moved around his brother and fed Randy
Robertson for the score. But it was Mark who had the
"We always criticize each other about who has the
better team, but I guess after this weekend, I can say I
have the better team. It was quite an experience to play
against my own brother."
Both Sorensen's wear the No. 3 on their uniforms
and on Saturday the two punished each other with
some tough hits. The Michigan Sorensen got the
better of the action, knocking his brother hard to the
ice. "I was just trying to get all the old frustrations,
aggravations, manipulations over the past years out,"
Mark said. "We were always fighting when we were
younger since we are so close in age."
Were the hard hits reserved just for his brother?
"No, not really," Mark said. "I had to do my job.
But we ran into one another and I like to give him the
little extra hit."
