The men's rugby team set the
pace for the football team with a
clean sweep of Notre Dame in South
Bend this weekend. The ruggers
defeated the Irish in three straight
matches by the scores of 44-4, 22-
10, and 16-4.
The first match pitted the teams'
two A sides. Captain Tae-ni Chang
Stroman and Scott Chrisler led the
Wolverines, combining for 16
points. Notre Dame's young and
inexperienced side was dominated by
the explosive speed of Michigan's
backline. A commendable perfor-
mance was also seen by exchange
student Ule von Jaegermeister, play-
ing his first match for Michigan
after arriving from West Germany.
The B game was the closestgame
of the day. Down 6-0, the All Blues
rallied behind scores from 20-year
veteran and alumnus Tom Raboine
and senior Tom Warburton to take a
commanding lead. Second-year law
student Bruce Goldner iced the game

Maybe you're from a small town.
Or maybe you call the city your home.
Either way, you were somewhat of a local
sports figure. Your career was followed by the
local media. Friends, relatives, as well as others,
all found out, and were excited when you made
your decision to become a Wolverine and bring
your talents to the University of Michigan. You
are about to become a first-year student-athlete.
Now, high school days are memories, and you
are wondering what exactly the "college life" is
Wondering what it takes to make it.
Wondering how good your teammates and
opponents really will be.
At least, that is how it was for me.
I spent my high school years at your average
small town Class B high school in Michigan's
upper peninsula. I experienced quite a successful
high school swimming career and was quite
excited when I was offered the chance to swim for
the University of Michigan. I knew I would be
one of the slower swimmers on the team, and the
longer and more intense workouts seemed to (and
still do) worry me, but the thought of swimming
with some of the nation's best swimmers excited
I knew Michigan, not the Army, was the
place for me to "be all I could be."
For me, the transition from high school to
college probably couldn't"t have been greater, but
the bigger surprise was the blood, sweat, and
tears it took to make the jump that I, like so
many others, thought would be a little hop.
After arriving in Ann Arbor, nine other frosh
swimmers and I were promptly introduced to the
dormitory life and the party scene. (The two are
often interchangeable.) The first three weeks were
one big party- classes seemed to be reviewing old
material and swimming had not yet begun. We
spent this time getting to know our new
teammates and enjoying our new freedom.
These were good times not all first-year
students took part in- it was the first advantage of
being an athlete. Unlike most incoming frosh, I
had thirty teammates with whom i quickly
bonded and became friends. They showed me, and
the other rookies, the ropes and made it easy for
us to fit in and feel accepted at this huge new
place where it might be easy to feel lost and
friendless early on. Things were going as smooth
as I could have hoped. Then workouts began.
The time I spent in the pool was about the
same as my high school years, one workout
before and after classes plus one Saturday
morning. I was taking 16 credit hours of classes,
which in itself didn't take any more time than
my high school classes. But the intensity of the
workouts and classes at least doubled. Add to that
about eight more hours a week for weights,
stretching, and dryland- that I wasn't used to-
and it isn't hard to see how I quickly became
fatigued. After a short while, I could no longer
give as much energy to schoolwork or
swimming as I hoped I could have.
It wasn't long until my world seemed to be
On top of swimming and school, there were
hundreds of other adjustments I never could have
imagined or been prepared for until I lived
through it myself.
A Sinking Feeling
On top of swimming and school there were
hundreds of other adjustments In never could have
imagined or been prepared for until I lived

drills, and trying to sleep while my neighbor was

Welcome to Monday.
Which, in other words, depending
on the exact moment you are reading
- this, is actually T-minus 120 to 144
hours away from kickoff of The
Game of the Year (until Notre Dame
faces Miami), The Game of the
Decade (until October 20 again) or
the Game of the Century (not
including last year's dubbed game.)
Get the idea?
Todhv the hvne bein before the
booth can keep this game from
getting it's rightly deserved hype.
And the questions bombarding
the coaches will be equally tanta-
"So, Coach Gary Moeller, what
did you eat for dinner last night?"
"But didn't Bo have his eggs done
Then the ultimate headline the
next day to ever increase the hype
will read: "Mo Breaks Bo Tradition."
