One hundred thousand screaming
fans.
Every football Saturday in Ann
Arbor they become one swarming,
living mass of spirit. They cheer for
their Wolverines in every
conceivable manner. They yell, do
the wave, row, pop up inter-
*ittently, shake keys, scream
obscenities, throw marshmallows,
and have even been known to throw
each other. They wear maize and
blue, and mock those who don't.
They eat Dominos Pizza and drink
Absopure water.
It only happens at Michigan
Stadium.
There is an aura that surrounds
thus ominous structure that seems to
;~tract all who pass through Ann
Arbor, visitors -and students alike.
Ies not hard to understand why.
:For many, Michigan football is
the most identifiable part of the
university. For these people,
Michigan Stadium is on the top of
the "Must Visit" list. That first trip
is one of those rare experiences that
is never forgotten.

It goes something like this... -
While walking up to the stadium, looking down, taking a step back as
the butterflies start to enter your well as a deep breath. You finally sit
stomach. It's been on T.V. a million down and look at Michigan Stadium,
times and now you're standing in its its awesome spectacle and all that it

Michigan football lives in the
shadows of that huge bowl and
similarly so does a part of the
university, a part of the students and
a part of anyone who has ever
witnessed a Michigan football game.
You sit in the stadium alone. No
national anthem. No fans. Yet you
can hear it all. You can't help but
imagine being down on the field
giving your all like the maize and
blue on football Saturdays. You
can't wait to come back for a home
game.
The time is finally here. The
time to take part in Michigan's
greatest party. The time to hear the
band and sing "The Victors" with
over one hundred thousand others.
The time to watch and cheer as the
Michigan Wolverines race on the
field and leap to slap the "M GO
BLUE" banner.
When sitting there alone,
Michigan Stadium can mean so
much. It can bring back memories,
cause one to dream, and even make
one shiver a bit. But now...now it's
football season.

'MI' men's rugby
starts league play
by Jeni Durst
Daily Sports Writer
As many Michigan teams jump into league play, the men's rugby
club kickoff their equivalent of Big Ten action this weekend.
The club will face a mixed squad of the University of Detroit and the
Michigan School of Business. But this match will serve only as a
warmup for the beginning of senior league play, which starts
immediately after with a game against Cincinnati University. This
match against league rival Cincinnati will serve as a telltale marker for
the entire season.
"If we lose this one we'll have a bad start on the season and be deep
in the hole," Michigan Coach Tanny said. "It's not one of our toughest,
but it's one of the most important."
Cincinnati has beaten the Wolverines three straight years, but the
young squad has put in extra practice this week in preparation for the
game.
"We have a goal to win the senior league this year and a win over
Cincinnati is a step in the right direction," Tanny said. "We have a
bigger commitment to win this year."
Another important factor will also be evident this weekend. The
match will serve as a proving ground for the young and inexperienced
squad, a weakness that has held them back in previous years.
"This match will be important because it will show the improvement
of our younger players," Tanny said. "Our youth is one of the reasons
Cincinnati has beaten us the last few years."
The match against the combined squads will begin at 1:00 p.m. at
Mitchell Field and will be followed immediately by the Cincinnati
game.

'Wildcats invade

Tartan

Turf

by James Burgess
Daily Sports Writer
"I don't know one thing about
*ichigan."
And that could prove to be the
strongest weapon the Wolverine
stickers have when power house
Northwestern (3-1-1) pays a call
Saturday. New head coach Marrissa
Didio, although having inherited a
team which has never lost to
Michigan, is still busy familiarizing
herself with the hand she's been
"I wouldn't predict anything; I
have no expectations. We're just
preparing our own team."
Such reservation in the Wildcat
camp would seem to be quite

encouraging to Michigan coach Patti
Smith, whose team is off to a 3-1
start. But as traditional 'pregame
hype' dictates, Smith is guarded.
"We definitely feel that we're
the underdogs and we're comfortable
with that. I think that does motivate
us more in this type of contest."
'Underdog' is a word that fits
well; Michigan was thrashed during
their last meeting, 4-0-the
Wolverines' worst defeat of 1989.
To change the outcome this time
around, Smith and her crew will
have to capitalize on a rare weak link
in Northwestern's chain-goal
keeping.
"They have freshmen goal
keepers," cites Smith, "so anything
can happen." Michigan will protect

the net with two first year goalies of
their own in Nicole Hoover and
Natasha Bach. So far, the duo has
allowed only 3 goals in 4 games.
Another important factor in the
match will be Michigan's seniors-
or lack thereof. Though only 3
players are in their final year, 2 are
defenders, and this could bring the

team that much closer to a reversal
of last season's rout.
Despite their domination of the
series, Northwestern is not without
incentive. The Wildcats are defending
a 10-0 record and conference title
from last year's debut of the
Midwest Collegiate Field Hockey
Conference.
