feet) waking up in a pool of sweat,
screaming, at 2 a.m. after he dreamed
that Minnesota running back Darrell
Thompson rushed for 400 yards
against Michigan.
* "The important thing is what we
do mentally (against Minnesota),"
Schembechler said. "We've got some
momentum, and if we go up there
and mess around, then I'll be very
disappointed in our team.
"I don't think that will happen,"
he said.
So, if even Bo doesn't think that
will occur, then why should anyone
. give a damn?
Because, who knows, the idea of
Thompson rushing for 400 yards
yards against the Wolverines might
be in the realm of reality. Two years
ago, as a sophomore, Thompson ran
around the Michigan secondary like
the Tasmanian Devil, chomping up
more than 200 rushing yards. A
good chunk of those yards came
when Thompson broke a stunning
98-yard touchdown run.
"That 98-yarder went right past
me, I was almost ready to tackle
him. Darrell Thompson is a heck of
a back," Schembechler said. "He's
faster than (Indiana running back and
Heisman Trophy candidate Anthony
Thompson); he's a talented kid, very
talented."
But the Michigan defense hasn't
allowed a runner, including Indiana's
*yThompson, to gain over 100 yards
this year. In fact, the Wolverine
defense hasn't given up 100 total
rushing yards in the last seven
games.
Why should anyone, then, wake
up and flip on ESPN for the 12:30
p.m. game on Saturday?
Because, hey, The Little Brown
Jug is at stake. No, not the
restaurant but an actual Little Brown
'Jug that goes to the winner of each
Michigan-Minnesota game. Starting
in 1892, the Little Brown Jug
rivalry is only the third longest
Michigan Big Ten rivalry.
Ho hum. Can we find an answer
to the original question, please.
All right. Minnesota happens to
be halfway decent this year, taking a
31-0 lead over Ohio State earlier this
year, only to blow the lead and lose
the game 41-37. And, last week, the
Golden Gophers led, Michigan State
7-6 after three quarters.
They eventually lost that one,
21-7. So, why care?
Because if the Wolverines have a
tough time, like they normally do
against the Gophers, they could lose
and not go to the Rose Bowl. How
silly would-you feel that you didn't
care about such an important game?
redshirted last year, will also
compete this weekend.

Annapolis will include Navy and Big

Spikers hope to
triple their wins
by Theodore Cox
Daily Sports Writer
Michigan's women's volleyball team will trek south
this weekend hoping to triple their Big Ten win total.
The 1-14 Wolverines will face Purdue tonight and then
travel to Champaign to challenge Illinois.
The Wolverines are eagerly awaiting their match
against the Fighting Illini, basically because Illinois
provides some of the most knowledgeable spectators in
the nation.
"It's a fun place to play because it's a small arena
and the fans are really close," Michigan coach Joyce
Davis said. "Their fans like good volleyball. So even if
we score on them, their fans still appreciate a great
play. We've always done well there."
The Wolverines will have to play well to defeat
either team.
Purdue, 5-9, has come on strong the second half of
the season behind the strong play of their outside hitter,
Debbie McDonald. The 6-1 southpaw passed the 2,000
career kill mark last week.
"Against Purdue we really need to serve tough
because they can only run their offense, particularly
McDonald, if they get a good pass," Davis said.
Davis feels her team needs to be more aggressive at
the service line this weekend. Michigan's serving is
dead last in the conference, with only 1.36 aces a game.
"Our serving has been consistent, but we want to
take a few more risks. We might get one or two more
service errors, but if we get one or two more aces it will
be worth it," Davis said.
Illinois, 11-3 in the Big Ten, is looking forward to
the arrival of the Wolverines. The Fighting Illini are
only 1 1/2 games out of first, with only four conference
matches left. However, their long list of injuries
should keep the Wolverines competitive.
Michigan has also suffered some minor injuries, but
everyone should be able to play this weekend. Seniors
Kim Clover and Karen Marshall, who have only three

matches left in their collegiate careers, would have to be
seriously maimed before they avoid action.
"Clover suffered a mild ankle sprain, but she would
not let up in practice at all," Davis said. "They're not
holding back and they're going to give 100 percent."

Northwestern (0-9, 0-6 Big
Ten) at Michigan St. (5-4, 4-2 Big
Ten) If Murphy's Law doesn't
smash head first into Michigan St.
during the tail-end of their season
they'll be headed way, way, way
down south for the Aloha Bowl on
Dec. 25. Considering that the
Spartan's remaining two contests are
against perennial losers Northwest-
ern and Wisconsin, a loss doesn't
seem likely. So it's off to Honolulu
for the green and white. Palm trees,
grass skirts, and cas-cading waterfalls
will attempt to clean the stains off
of the Spartan's disappointing sea-
son. But did George Perles make the
right decision?
The Aloha Bowl's $500,000
paycheck is larger only than the
$150,000 offered by the California
Bowl. Comparatively speaking, the
Rose Bowl shells out $6,000,000
for each team. Take into account the
cost of traveling to Hawaii, and it
seems possible that the Spartan's
might actually lose money on the
deal. Michigan State's opponent?
Why, it will be the Hawaii Rain-
bows (8-2), of course, who only
have to win their remaining game
against Oregon St. (4-5-1) to clinch
the bowl birth.
Supposedly, the John Hancock
Bowl wanted the Spartan's in a big
way and offered a paycheck that was
twice the size, as well as a more
respectable opponent in Pitt, Texas
A&M, or Arkansas. However, the
Aloha Bowl approached Perles first,
and he pounced on the opportunity.
Indiana (5-4, 3-3 Big Ten) at
Illinois (7-2, 5-1 Big Ten)
It's an unlikely bet that Anthony
Thompson will repeat his 377 yard
performance of a week ago.
Thompson probably won't even
accumulate a third of that yardage

Meet will t
by Aaron Hinklin
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan wrestling team
heads for Dayton, Ohio Saturday for
the prestigious Ohio Open. While
there is no team score at open
tournaments, the early meets serve
as proving grounds for the young
wrestlers.
Michigan has five returning
starters and five relatively inexper-
ienced wrestlers. Coach Dale Bahr
believes the team's success may rely
on the new starters.
"How good we're going to be,
will depend on...how fast Jason
Cluff, Jim Feldkamp and Lanny
Green develop. Those are the three
redshirt freshmen that are in the
lineup at the present time.
"If they develop quickly then
we'll be fine. Other than that we
could be in some scrambles. We've
got four or five guys who I think
could be consistent winners. But to
win big time you need to have six
out of your ten kids to win," Bahr
said.

est young
At the Eastern Open last
weekend, the redshirts and first year
wrestlers in the starting line-up gave
mixed reviews. At 134 pounds, first
year wrestler Joey Gilbert took first
place. Bahr said that he wasn't
totally surprised by the win, because
he knew Gilbert could do it. At 142
and 167, redshirt frosh Jim
Feldkamp and Lanny Green both
placed fourth.
"Green and Feldkamp proved to
me that they can win, they're gritty
and can win the match."
Green feels that his strength,
conditioning, and basic techniques
are fine, but that he needs to
improve the little things that only
experience in tournaments can
provide. "We watched films from
Saturday and I learned so much from
just six matches. You need that stuff
more than practice."
Redshirt frosh Jason Cluff did not
place in the Eastern Open, but Bahr
still has confidence that Cluff will
contribute to the team.
"Cluff needs to be more focused.

wrestlers
He can not accept defeat as he did at
Eastern."
TheOhio Open will also be a
proving ground for the veteran
wrestlers. Bahr said, "It's the best
tournament in the nation this
weekend." Seven Big Ten powers
will be at the tournament as well as
Cleveland and Pittsburgh. There will
be about 100 more wrestlers than
there were at the Eastern Open.
There should be ample competition
for the veteran wrestlers.
The role of the Ohio Open for the
veteran wrestlers is to tell them what
they need to improve to reach the
top. "It's preparing us for our
peaking phase. It tells us where we
are in the country." said Sam
Amine.

Fighting Illini should emerge

Gymnasts get head start on season

by Scott Erskine
Daily Sports Writer
Although the men's gymnastics
season does not officially start until
mid-January, eight members of the
team will travel to the Naval
Academy in Annapolis, Maryland
this weekend to compete in an open
tournament.
Seventh year Michigan head
coach Bob Darden is enthusiastic
about the tournament.
"By going to the meet...we'll get
to see, (and) have preliminary
exposure to all the Eastern teams,"
Darden said.
Getting this exposure is
important for the young team since
the NCAA regional format has been
changed this year. According to new
NCAA rules, there will be only two
different regional tournaments as
opposed to the four different
regionals in years past.
Michigan will compete against
many of the teams from the newly
formatted regionals during the
regular season, but seeing the
strengths of the teams from the East

prepare to qualify for the regional
meet.
Among those that will be
competing in the tournament is first-
year student Josh Miner, a walk-on
from Chicago, Illinois. Miner will
be tested for the first time in actual
competition as a Wolverine.
Also, co-captain Jim Round will

begin his second season of
competition with the Wolverines
after breaking a bone in his hand at
the end of last season.
Filling out the rest of the reduced
roster for Michigan are senior co-
