As kickoff to the football season
looms ever so closer, fans are once
again chirping about Michigan's
chances to return to the Rose Bowl.
With the talk of the Rose Bowl,
comes the standard questions about
where everyone will be sitting when
new coach Gary Moeller leads the
Wolverines out on the field.
It is too late to order season tic-
kets now - the deadline was June
for returning students and could be
ordered during orientation by new
students. However, chances are, if
you've had a change of heart, you
could be sitting in Michigan Sta-
dium anyways. Tickets are sold for
individual games at the ticket depart-
ment, located at 1000 State Street.
Usually, only the games which
Michigan has a chance of winning
by 50 points are available. Also, if
unfamiliar with Ann Arbor, ticket
scalpers will be near the Union all
week before a game selling both
season ticket books and individual
tickets. Have lots of cash ready.
Tickets to see the remnants of
Michigan's 1989 national champ-
ionship basketball team will soon
go on sale. The sale dates will be an-
nounced in the Daily, as well as at
football games. Seating is based on
credit hours and the number of years
one has purchased season tickets in
the past. Prices have not been an-
nounced but last season they were
Last year, Crisler Arena started a
student section behind the south
baskets, which. improved crowd
noise and enthusiasm. Still, Crisler
Arena remained one of the few places
one could take nap, study, and watch
a basketball game all in two hours.
In addition to lacking the stars of
last year's team like Rumeal
Robinson, Terry Mills, and Loy
Vaught, the Wolverines home
schedule also is lacking star quality.
After playing Iowa State and Duke at
home last year, the Wolverines must
visit them this year. The negatives
to owning basketball season tickets
include the long walk to Crisler for
car-less students, the winter cold, a
soporific non-conference schedule,
and many weeknight games.
Hockey season tickets also go on
sale soon and will be announced at
football games as well as the Daily.
Last year, season tickets costs $60
for students. The student section was
right behind the Michigan bench.
Hockey tickets are definitely the
best buy in town and all games are
played on weekends. The atmosphere
is more exciting than Crisler too.
Individual tickets are available for as
little as $4 and can usually be
bought at the door.
After grabbing its first invitation
ever to the NCAA tournament, the
women's basketball team hopes to
have additional support. Student
tickets are a measly $2 for any seat
in Crisler Arena. And don't be
fooled: women's basketball can be
Wrestling also has a strong group
of followers who turn out frequently.
They wrestle in the new Varsity
Arena, which has been converted
The grunting, finger pointing and temper tantrums
that symbolized Michigan athletics for two decades is
Make no mistake about it: Glenn E. "Bo" Schem-
bechler is as entrenched today in Michigan athletics as
he ever has been. But now, it's only a memory. When
the Michigan football team comes through the tunnel,
he won't lead them.
The tradition will live on, just
like the memories - and if you're a iG
student at Michigan, you will
celebrate with each team. The teams

Wolverines have led the nation in attendance since
1974. The hockey rink is named after a football coach
(Yost). The basketball arena is named after a football
coach too (Crisler).
Michigan is Saturday's. Forget about Friday night
hangovers. By the time 1 p.m. hits and the crowded
walk through the masses of people on State Street and
Hoover begins, any thought of a headache is quickly
forgotten. Well almost. There is sunshine and cider, t-
shirt vendors and schnapps, tailgates and more people,
the Michigan Marching Band and the M Go Blue Club.
Finally, there is kickoff.
