High Step Dying?
The band played on again Saturday, debuting their cartoon show
to the home fans after opening the season with the same show at
Notre Dame.
The Marching Band brought down the house with their little jig to
the tune Under the Sea. The Jetsons, Peanuts' theme, and Bugs
Bunny theme were also fan favorites.
And do not slight the Maryland band, which used a big band
genre. Rumors say the Wolverines will put on their own big band
show later this year. If Maryland could have added a few bodies to
their band, it could have been an exciting Battle of the Bands.
NOTE: A problem could be arising. Some band members have
buzzed the Band Corner Hotline to complain about the lack of high
stepping, in the band's halftime performances. Word says band
director Gary Lewis doesn't care too much for it and prefers the more
subtle walking march. A phasing out of the high step is in the works.
Some alumni have complained to various band members.
Don't lose a Michigan tradition. The music and choreography is so
much better this year. Don't lose the high step.

Several colleges of Oxford University have invited the Wash-
ington International Studies Council to recommend qualified
students to study for one year or for one or two terms. Lower
Junior status is required, and graduate study is available. Stu-
dents are directly enrolled in their colleges and receive transcripts
from their Oxford college: this is NOT a program conducted by a
U.S. College in Oxford. 3.2 minimum index in major required.
An alternative program which is sponsored by a U.S. Univer-
sity is available for students with minimum indexes of 2.7. Stu-
dents will have social and athletic rights in an Oxford college, and
the fees are substantially less.
Many educators believe that the tutorial system of Oxford
and Cambridge (in which one scholar teaches one or two stu-
dents very intensively) provides a unique liberal arts education.
Evaluations (writen or by telephone) from previous Oxford stu-
dents from your college, or in your field, can usually be arranged
by WISC.
WISC offers summer internships with Congress, with the
White House. with the media and with think tanks. Govern-
ment and Journalism courses are taught by senior-level gov-
ernment officials, who are also scholars, and by experienced
journalists. Similar opportunities in public policy internships
are offered (with academic credit) in London (Fall. Spring and

field with untimely mistakes. Their
first drive was ended when linebacker
Martin Davis intercepted quarterback
Scott Zolak's pass and returned it 27
yards for a touchdown. Later, with
Michigan leading, 21-10, Maryland
drove from their own 23 yard line to
Michigan's 23 in the last two min-
utes of the first half, only to have
the march quashed by a Lance Dottin
interception at the Wolverine 4 yard
And when Maryland wasn't
committing unforced turnovers, the
Michigan defense lended some help.
On one play in the third quarter,
middle guard T.J. Osman screamed
through the Terp's line, chased down
Zolak from the blind side, sacked
him, forced a fumble and recovered it
himself at the Maryland 20 yard line.
"Those turnovers helped us a
great deal because it brought our de-
fense closer together and gave our of-
fense some points," senior free
safety Tripp Welborne said.
Indeed, for the first time this sea-
son, Michigan's offense (ranked 7th
in the nation coming into the game)
and running game (4th) did not have
its way with the opposing defense.
Maryland outgained the Wolverines
in total offense (422 yards to 352
yards) and possessed the bal five
minutes longer than did Michigan.
Tailback Jon Vaughn ran for 89
yards, or 200 less than last week.
"Those 200 yard games are few
and far between," Vaughn said. "I
just want as many as it takes to win,
and that's more important than lead-
ing the country in rushing."
Vaughn credited a Maryland de-
fense that he described as not miss-
ing any tackles, penetrating, and
pursuing well.
Skrepenak offered another inter-
pretation: "They were guessing
where we were running and flying
there and it was working for them.
"We (the line) just didn't put it
all together as a group. We're going
to take a little heat tomorrow and
rightfully so. We've been getting a
lot of the glory lately so it's only
right that we take the heat for this
While Maryland was grounding
Michigan's running game, it found
its own as well. The Terps' one-back
offense was expected to rely heavily
on the pass, which it did, (Zolak at-
tempted 45 passes for a school-record
29 completions) but also found suc-
cess handing the ball off to tailback
Troy Jackson.
Jackson's 13 carries for 89 yards
gave Moeller cause for concern with
the Big Ten season-opener only a
week away.
"There's no way that team should
have run like that on us," he said. "I
don't like the way they ran against
us and I don't like the way we ran.
Those are the two things I'd like to
change around."
Said Welborne: "They have a
great passing team and a great of-
fense so they can move the ball
against anybody. What you've got to
'do is not give up a lot of points and
not give up big plays."
Sure, Michigan Coulduv, Woul-
duv and Shoulduv played more con-

Wolverines bury Terps under
slew of fumbles, Interceptitons

by Ryan Schreiber
Daily Football Writer
Through the entire season, turnovers have been the
downfall of the Maryland offense. During the first four
games of the year, the Terrapins turned the ball over 12
more times than their opponents.
Six more against Michigan took them out of a close
game and made the Wolverine victory seem like a romp.
"They gave us too many opportunities and turnovers
at the same time," Michigan coach Gary Moeller said.
Maryland coach Joe Krivak agreed: "You turn the
ball over against a team like Michigan, sooner or later
they're going to make it. You don't make those kind of
mistakes against a team of this caliber. When you do,
you pay for it."
Michigan wasted little time in recording its first of
three interceptions on the day. On the second play of the
game, linebacker Martin Davis stepped in front of a
Scott Zolak pass and pranced 27 yards for the touch-
down. Only 56 seconds had ticked off the clock.
SCORE: Michigan 7, Maryland 0.
With the Michigan offense unable to get anything
going through the first 18 minutes of the game, Vada
Murray came up with the Wolverines' second intercep-
tion, which led to the second big play of the game.
Murray slashed and cut his way for 34 yards through
the Maryland offense, eventually falling at the Maryland
37 yard line. Then, Elvis Grbac connected with
Desmond Howard on a bomb for the rest of the distance
to the goal line.
SCORE: Michigan 14, Maryland 3.
Without even mustering much of an offense, the
Wolverines had already opened up a sizeable lead. And
when the Michigan offense came to life, Maryland

seemed in desperate need of a score to close the gap be-
fore the end of the half.
Enter interception number three, turnover number
On a timing pattern to the left corner, Lance Dottin
stepped in front of the wide receiver, snatching away the
Maryland hopes of a final, first-half score. Grbac
snapped the ball from Michigan's own four yard line
and downed it to exit the field.
SCORE: Michigan 21, Maryland 10.
The final nail in the coffin was turnover number
five. Following a Michigan kickoff, the Terrapins were
at their own 20 when disaster struck.
T.J. Osman hit Zolak, knocked the ball out of his
hands and fell on it at the Maryland seven yard line.
"We wanted to run a sprint out," Krivak said. "We
snapped the ball a little before our quarterback was
ready, and he had the ball knocked out of his hand."
While the Wolverines could only add a field goal, the
damage had been done. Maryland would not score again.
SCORE: Michigan 31, Maryland 17.
To cap the day, Zolak fumbled again when Chris
Hutchinson sacked him. The Maryland quarterback ex-
ited the game after the next series, having been respon-
sible for five of the six miscues on the day.
"I think a lot of the things that happened to us of-
fensively, you've got to be able to give Michigan some
credit," Krivak said.
"I said going in, the one thing that Maryland had to
stop doing to be a good complete team was to eliminate
the turnovers," Moeller said. "That's obviously the
thing that killed them."
SCORE: Michigan 45, Maryland 17.
