The Notre Dame Observer compiles a weekly
college football poll, voted on by the sports
staffs of 30 different college newspapers
nationwide, including the Michigan Daily.

Moeller's bash billed
for New Year's Day
MADISON - Get out your calendar and make a special notation.
You're being invited to a party at which Gary and Ann Moeller, as
well as the rest of the Michigan Wolverines, are requesting your
attendance.
Now you won't formally be receiving your invitation in the mail
along with Ed McMahon's latest sweepstakes entry. Just simply show
up. Formal attire is not a necessity either. The Moeller's are pretty down-
to-earth people. (Picture a trip to Fred Flinstone's house - all you need
is a barrel of laughs.)
The Gig' will be held almost coast-to-coast and it'll take place just
when the hangovers are ending from New Year's Eve.
Yep. January 1, 1991. Time: roughly 8:15. Place: Two locations. The
primary sight is Pasadena, California. If you can't make it to California,
plan on returning to Ann Arbor a little early and meet on the corner of
South University and Church Street.
Of course, Gary will be at the California location, but,if the bash gets
just a little bit big on South University, then I'm sure he'll see you via
CNN.
Now that the Associated Press is at least considering the Wolverines as
the top team in the country, if not definitely annointing them as such,
Moeller can begin to make the necessary party arrangements.
Mo will throw the bash Bo never got to. He'll conclude his first year
as the head man at Michigan with a Rose Bowl victory... and a national
championship.
"Who says you have to beat Notre Dame to be No. 1," he'll ask.
"Hey, I did it in six games, how many did it take you?" basketball
*coach Steve Fisher will counter since he also won a national
championship in his first year as coach.
The task is pretty simple.
Call the florist, order a few dozen roses.
Call the caterer, have them make some cheesecake - since it was after
Wisconsin that Michigan began thinking again about a national
championship.
And with that theme in mind, order a few kegs of Milwaukee's Best.
(Sidenote: Did you know that in Milwaukee, Milwaukee's Best is not
even sold? Think about it.)
Make sure to order ice, too. It'll be a big party. California and
*Michigan.
Of course there are a few minor details to attend to, in addition to
ordering caviar to the lockerroom and the riot police to South U.
They are victories over Michigan State, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa,
Minnesota, Purdue and Ohio State, as well as a bowl opponent.
Like I said, that of course, is a mere formality. The important
decision? Whether or hot to replace the coffee beans with Folgers'
Mountain Grown crystals.
UMICHIGAN STATE WEEK: The Spartans are invading Ann
Arbor this week for their annual showdown with the Wolverines. It's a
good time to be a part of the state of Michigan. Everyone chooses sides,
the radio stations play the fight songs, and a nation tunes in on Saturday
to see why this state is so crazy about football.
Of course, after the Spartans have two offensive possessions, the
public will be snoozing. Is there anything in this world more boring than
George Perles' offensive system? Granted, the defense year in and year
out, is something to behold. But the offense is just one big snore.
Saturday should be interesting down at the Stadium, but the loss of
receiver Courtney Hawkins appears to make the Spartan offense even
more one-tracked than it has been in the past.
The next time Perles threatens to bolt for more money, someone
I should play the Board of Trustees - who are usually in such a frenzy
over this possible abandonment - a tape of the Spartans on offense. It's
the perfect cure for insomnia. Then take the vote on whether to give
George an extra half million that he's attempting to bribe out of them.
I nominate that George Perles be named lifetime defensive coordinator
of Michigan State. Hire Mouse Davis for the offense. They might
actually field a team that can consistently beat Iowa.
Due to the proximity of UM and MSU, the rivalry flows over to the
student body. Last year, Spartan students spray painted Michigan's cube
and Diag, while holding a 24-hour vigil on their sacred Sparty to prevent
decapitation or paint. Last year, some Wolverine faithful outsmarted the
guards by simply entering the stadium and painting the white 'S' on the
field with a big 'M.'
Michigan students should be aware that some Spartans will probably
again attempt to do some sort of prank on the Ann Arbor campus, but the
lack of school spirit will prevent this school from doing anything to
prevent it.
EMSU II: The day has finally arrived. High expectations accompany
the Michigan hockey team as they faceoff the season this Friday down at
Miami-Ohio.
But by looking a little farther down the schedule, a little foresight
could help solve a embarrassing dilemma.
Each year, Michigan State shows up at Yost Ice Arena and is greeted
by a sold out crowd which numbers more Spartan partisans than Michigan
fans.
Now that's embarrassing. There has been all sorts of talk about how to
remedy the situation. Last year a local businessman, and large hockey

supporter, was so upset at the scene that he even considered buying out
the arena and then giving away the tickets at his store.
Tickets are already going fast for the Friday November 9 meeting, the
only one this year between the two at Yost. The two teams decided to
grab more money, taking away the Ann Arbor-East Lansing venues in
* February for a two-game series at Detroit's Joe Louis Arena.
The Michigan-Michigan State game is a guaranteed good time, and if
one plans to see only one game this year, this is the one.
Plan ahead, and head down to the Michigan Ticket Department at 1000
State Street this week and purchase tickets. They cost only $4.00 and the
money will leave some Spartan hockey fans out in the cold.
Now that's money well spent.

half.
"I think that Ohio State has
given us a lot better games in the
past," Joyaux said. "But it's [the
lack of competition] nice at times. It
doesn't put a lot of pressure on you,
it lets you work on stuff. We've
been able to give our subs a lot of
playing time, and we've been able to
experiment with different people at
different positions."
Saturday's game against Bowling
Green was also an easy victory for
the Wolverines. Michigan dictated
the course of the game, enabling all
of the substitutes to receive substan-
tial playing time in this match as
well.
However, unlike the contest
against the Buckeyes, the scoring in
the Bowling Green game was much
more spread out. Five different play-
ers scored for Michigan, with the

first goal coming 13 minutes into
the game off a shot by Krista
Towne.
Ten minutes later, Wolverine Al-
isha Stewart was tackled in Bowling
Green territory, and Michigan was
awarded a penalty kick. Jenny Stein-
hebel converted the shot, putting the
Wolverines up, 2-0.
Towards the end of the first half,
Towne assisted Stewart on what
turned out to be an empty-net goal.
Bowling Green's goalie had fallen
down while trying to prevent Towne
from getting a shot off. Towne then
passed the ball to Stewart, who
scored uncontested.
"We played with good intensity
in the first half," Towne said.
"Everyone played well and con-
tributed."
Molly Douma and Shannon
Loper each scored goals in the sec-
ond half.
The Wolverines' face Western
Michigan tomorrow at 4:30.

on Saturday after losing two very
close games to Grand Rapids and
Kalamazoo by the counts of 10-9
and 9-4, respectively.
Stroman, however, was quick to
praise the efforts of the B-squad.
"They played tenacious defense
and fought back valiantly, almost
winning both games in the closing
minutes," Stroman stated.
Leading the charge for Michigan
was captain Jonathan Lichterman and

players Brian Anderson, Ed Spy-
brook, and Jameson Townsend.
Stroman has been pleased with
the overall play and the direction in
which the team is heading.
"Our players continue to make
huge strides," Stroman said. "I have
confidence that we will be a force to
be reckoned with, once the Big Ten
Tournament rolls around in Novem-
ber."
The team will return to senior
league action next Saturday as it
travels to Chicago to face the
Chicago Blaze. The team is hoping
to improve on its 1-1-1 league
record.
