Michigan slams Boilermakers
700th win not up to
par with 'M' tradition
The first of anything is supposed to be special. Like
the first wedding in a family, the first child being born,
or the first bar mitzvah.
Saturday was another first as Michigan became the
the first Division 1-A school to win 700 football games.
Seven hundred games, with only 232 total losses.
That's better than other football powers such as
Alabama, Notre Dame, or Penn State. The only school
to win more games is Yale with 753, but the Bulldogs
do not compete in college football's upper echelon.
Steve For Michigan to join the 700-
club in such a poorly-played game is
It just seemed that Michigan
would majestically win number 700,
either by trouncing an opponent or
pulling a victory out during the final
minutes of play. It's only fitting
considering Michigan's football
Unlike at some other schools,
tradition remains relatively
Blonder untampered with at Michigan.
The Wolverines have retained the
winged helmet design, first used by
the legendary Fielding H. Yost
whose "Point-a-Minute" teams scored 2,821 points to
the opponents 42, in addition to playing 56 consecutive
games without a loss.
The words to the fight song remain unchanged since
Louis Elbel composed "The Victors" in 1898.
And the school has not bucked tradition and adopted
Wy the Wolverine or any other such inane proposal as
x a mascot.
Part of the winning tradition should have included a
seven hundreth victory achieved by a performance up to
the standard of excellence set by the winningest active
coach in college football.
But it didn't, and Michigan coach Bo Schembechler
was the first to admit it.
"What a 700. Fielding turned over and said, 'Bo, what
the hell are you doing?' I'm sure he did.

As the Michigan Wolverines
were on their way to all-time win
No. 700 against Purdue last
Saturday, legendary football coach
Fielding H. Yost was probably
looking down from football Valhalla
But the current Michigan football
coach, a legend in his own time, had
a different vision.
"Fielding probably turned over
and said, 'Bo, what the hell are you
doing?"' Bo Schembechler said.
After realizing that his statement
could be considered sacrilege in some
parts, Schembechler looked skyward
and said, "I apologize, Fielding."
Unfortunately, Yost didn't hear
him because he was probably still
dizzy from watching the scrambling
Boilermaker quarterback Eric Hunter.
Evading tackles all afternoon, the
first-year quarterback seemed as if he
had buttered up his uniform. A
typical Purdue passing play Saturday
would almost always include Hunter
running around like a chicken
without a head before uncorking a
"We chased him out of the
pocket, but we contained (Hunter)
most of the game," defensive tackle
Chris Hutchinson said. "He was real
mobile and as soon as the pocket

Buster Stanley rushes Purdue first-year quarterback Eric Hunter. However, Hunter completed 27 of 42 passes for 344
yards and four passing touchdowns. He scored the most touchdown passes ever against Michigan by an opposing
quarterback. His performance was also the best performance by a Purdue quarterback against a Schembechler-

BLOOMINGTON, IN - Just
another typical Big Ten weekend.
The football team pounds Purdue,
and the Michigan women's volley-
ball team just gets pounded. The
Wolverines (6-15 overall, 1-12 in
the Big Ten) traveled to Ohio State
and then Indiana, only to add two
more losses to their dismal record.
The Buckeyes dropped the Wol-
verines quickly Friday night in
Columbus by winning all three
games, 15-6, 15-6, and 15-11.
"We just had an off night and
they played well like usual," said
Michigan captain Karen Marshall.
"Ohio State is a much better team. It
was one of our typical bad matches;
there's nothing positive to say about
Michigan, with a hitting
percentage of only .065, generated
little offense against Ohio State.

Blue icers halt losing streak;
ease past Bowling Green, 4-1

After only totalling 18 shots on
goal Thursday night in Bowling
Green, the Michigan hockey team
responded with 38 Friday night in
defeating the Falcons, 4-1, in its
"We were more aggressive
tonight," Michigan coach Red
Berenson said. "We checked more
and created more scoring
First-year defenseman Patrick
Neaton agreed. "When we check
we're going to create the chances.
We worked a lot harder and checked
a lot harder tonight than last night."
The scoring opportunities were
seen in the first period as leftwinger
Don Stone started the scoring for
Michigan (4-3-1 overall and in the
CCHA) with only 3:19 left in the
first period as Michigan was skat-
ing with the man advantage.
Right winger Ted Kramer
received a drop pass from Stone as
both skated up the left side and
Kramer returned the pass to Stone
who lofted a backhand over Bowl-
ing Green's Angelo Libertucci short
side, giving Michigan a 1-0 lead
which it never relinquished.
Libertucci was making his first
start, let alone his first collegiate
appearance. "(Libertucci) played
really solid in practice and he
deserved to play," Bowling Green
coach Jerry York said. "I thought he
played outstanding tonight and he'll
play a lot of hockey for us this
Berenson added: "I was surprised
with his start But sooner or later,
you've got to play your first game
and tonight was his."
"There were times when I was a
bit shaky," Libertucci said. "But

Michigan hopes to land

OAK PARK - Eric Lindros, the 16-year old hockey player who is the
consensus first pick in the 1991 NHL draft, will decide in one week
whether he will attend the University of Michigan or play for the Canadian
Junior National team.
Lindros, a 6-foot-4, 215 pound center from Toronto has been playing
for Compuware, an Oak Park based team in the North American Junior
"I'll make my decision. This is what I'll need to use as a crutch to
prepare for what's ahead," Lindros said referring to his life after hockey.
If Lindros chooses to play for the national team then he would be trav-
elling throughout Canada and Europe playing other junior national teams.
No matter what his choice is though, no one questions Lindros' ability
on the ice. Jim Rutherford, Compuware general manager and a former Red
Wings goaltender believes he could play in the NHL right now. "Because

Student trainers find reward in their hard work

They work four hours a day, five days a week,
generally with additional hours on weekends, and
