vs. Central Michigan and Morgan St.

The Michigan Daily.
Michigan, as expected, and Michigan State, as not expected, find
themselves battling Purdue for the Big Ten championship. "This time: it's
for real," some say, now that the war between the two schools actually
means something, after years of Carteresque malaise in Green and White
Now they both have solid basketball teams. Thursday the two square off
in East Lansing. The winner will remain in the race. The other will start
dreaming of the Final Four.
So there will be all kinds of talk about the two schools - how one is
elitist and the other one is for the common man. How one knows how to
study and the other knows how to down a 40 ounce of Schlitz in 10.8
seconds. How one uses their heads to solve medical crises and the other has
a basketball coach who bangs his head to create headaches.
But I'm going to tell you something. There ain't much different between
these two schools. There's a lot of similarities indeed.
First of all, they're both located in the state of Michigan. In case you fell
a little short in junior high geography class, trust me, it's true. If you're
faking classes in East Lansing and majoring in geography, trust me too. It's
true -- you'll learn it in a few weeks.
Second, there is a lot of milk in both Ann Arbor and East Lansing. In
Ann Arbor, there's Kroger, Hop and Rob, and Village Corner which all sell
milk. East Lansing has cows.
The president of each University has a last name which begins with the
letter "D." Michigan State students will learn about this on Thursday.
According to the the TV listings, Sesame Street will be sponsored by the
number "3," and the letters "H" and "D." So make sure you tune in.
The new football coach at Michigan looks like Fred Flinstone. The on-
again, off-again, but still football coach at Michigan State looks like his
Both campuses like to celebrate their athletic team's accomplishments.
Witness the following conversations.
Michigan, MSU not
so different after all
MICHIGAN STUDENT A: "Yo, pass me a beer, we gotta watch the
MICHIGAN STUDENT B: "Here's a Miller."
A: "Boy, this really tastes great, but it's not the less filling stuff."
(Two hours later of this wretched conversation and at the conclusion of
A: Yo, throw me another beer. Pour it on my head. WHOOO-WHHEEE!
WE WON! WE WON! WHOO WEEE! Let's go to South U.
Thus, there is a riot. People scream. Check out the view from China
Gate's awnings. Topple a car. Celebrate a national championship.
Now, here's your typical Spartan student returning home after a football
game at Spartan Stadium.
SPARTAN STUDENT A: Yo, pass me a beer, that was quite a game.
SPARTAN STUDENT B: Here's some Milwaukee's Best.
A: This sure doesn't taste great, but it's less filling on the pocket book.
B: Ha. Ha. Ha. You sure are the funny one.
(Two hours later and after reliving all the great moments of the
Michigan-Michigan State football game, which the Wolverines won, the
A: Yo, throw me another beer. Pour it on my head. WHOOO-WHHEEE!
WE LOST! WE LOST! WHOO WEEE! Let's have a riot.
B: Yeah man, let's celebrate with a fire too. WHOOO-WHEEEE!
A: But we need furniture. Yo, whose got furniture? We need furniture for
the fire. Any TV's? Couches?
And thus, these party animals join with others to celebrate a Spartan
football loss by turning the town upside down.
Can you believe it? Both schools celebrated - but one remembered that
it's the winning that counts. The other hasn't quite mastered such an
advanced premise yet.

Eight matches, eight wins. It's
Undefeated in the 89-90 season,
Michigan has definitely made it
Though they have only played
weaker non-conference teams, the
improvements over last year have
been tremendous. With just one
more win the Wolverines will tie
their entire 1988-89 victory total.
"We haven't really been pushed
in most of the matches," coach
Bitsy Ritt said, "but it was the first
time in six years we've beaten
Miami of Ohio, and we beat them
so decisively, 8-1. We definitely are
ahead from last year."
Another team which has caused
the Wolverines problems in the
past is Western Michigan. True to
form, the revived Michigan squad
defeated the Broncos handily in two
matches earlier this year.
One reason for the Wolverines'
improvement is the depth of their
strong recruiting class. Christine
Schmeidal, a sophomore transfer
from the University of San Diego,
leads the team as the top seed in
both singles and doubles.
"It's a great thing any time you
can bring in a number one seed,"
coach Ritt said. "She (Christine)
has made a significant contribution.
Transfers are always good to get
since they have experience on the

Backing up the experienced

Richard Coffey, a 6'7" forward
from Minnesota, earned conference
Player of the Week Honors. The 24-
year old Coffey, a former para-
trooper, scored 32 points and grabbed
*,25 rebounds in the Gop-hers' wins
over Wisconsin and Iowa.
A VOTE FOR THE BIG GUY:
Yesterday, Purdue coach Gene Keady
officially endorsed Steve Scheffler,
the Boilermaker's 6'8" center, for
Player of The Year in the Big Ten.
Scheffler is the nation's leader in
field goal percentage, hitting 78.5
percent of his shots. "I think that
either he, Tony (Jones) or Ryan
Berning should win it if we win the
league, " Keady said. "There aren't
many things in the league I disagree
with, but I think the MVP should
come from the winning team."
A VOTE FOR STATE: Illinois
coach Lou Henson likes the chances
of our neighbors in East Lansing for
Thursday's game. "I thought State
would win it until Manns got
injured, they still can win it, I think
it will be a close game," Henson
