"A great game plan," Moeller says.
"I just told Elvis to shoot the ball like Rumeal goes to the basket.
They're good people and they took care of business," Fisher says.
"I told the defense to give me their best Todd Copeland imitation,"
Berenson explains. "They hurled a few running backs better than
Copeland throws bricks through windows."
WEEK 5: MICHIGAN STATE
This game takes second place to the action away from the field.
Due to the riot Michigan State fans threw after their team lost to the
Wolverines last year in East Lansing, Ann Arbor police do not want a
repeat this year.
Expecting many East Lansingites to head to Ann Arbor for the big
game, Mayor Gerald Jerginson, in cooperation with Domino's owner
Tom Monahan, holds "Free Milk the Cow Day" at Dominos Farms
for anyone with a Michigan State student identification card. Hordes~
of Spartan students decide to make the trek to participate in a truly
gratifying experience. Even those who managed to get tickets to the
game pick up on the offer.
Michigan wins 3-2 on a J.D. Carlson field goal.
The town still stands - but is a national championship in the
offing?
"I think so," says Fisher, unaware that Rice, Robinson, Mills,
Vaught, Higgins, and Griffin have all left his team.
WEEK 6: IOWA
Iowa coach Hayden Fry hears of what Ann Arbor did for East
Lansing the week before.
"They never did that for us," Fry complains.
Monahan and Moeller collaborate on "Husk Your Own Corn Day"
at Dominos Farms. Fry brings the team over to husk a few beauties
before the game.
The Hawkeyes never make it back in time. "We were just having
too much fun," Fry explains. "Plus they let us put butter, not
margarine, on the corn after we all cooked the little things."
WEEK 7: AT INDIANA
The Wolverines have quietly won four games in a row and are
undefeated in Big Ten play. They continue their winning ways
against Indiana, winning 28-10.
WEEK 8: AT PURDUE
Moeller is now sticking roses above his ears instead of wearing a
headset and continually sings "California Here I Come."
The band keeps playing.
Michigan 30 Purdue 18.
WEEK 9: ILLINOIS
No special festivals at Dominos Farms today - only the biggest
game of the year. The Wolverines are undefeated in conference action.
Illinois has one loss. Remember though, the Wolverines cannot tie for
the title and go to the Rose Bowl.
With the World Series complete after the Tigers bowed out in seven
games, Bo Schembechler returns to Michigan Stadium.
For some odd reason, Michigan is called for seven unsportsmanlike
conduct calls - a total of 105 yards - because of an irate fan in the
first row.
The Wolverines lose 14-10.
"Save it for the Rose Bowl, Bo" an irritated Moeller says.
WEEK 10: MINNESOTA
Bo Schembechler now sits -in an all-glass soundproof box at the
fifty yard line. He is on display, looking as if he was either in Lenin's
tomb or going for a ride in the PopeMobile.
Michigan wins easily, Illinois loses. The Wolverines only need a
win against Ohio State, which also has one conference loss.
WEEK 11: OHIO STATE
This is it. Moeller is fretting. He will coach his first game on the
field where he used to play as a student.
At halftime, the score is tied.
Little did the team know, but the pressure got to Moeller so bad,
that during the first half, he was not drinking Gatorade, but rather a
spiked beverage to calm his nerves.
"Ladies," Moeller begins his halftime speech, "I don't feel good."
He promptly collapses.
The team knows that Michigan football coaches seem to fall down
with heart ailments every couple of years. They think it has happened
to Mo too.@
As doctors work on Moeller, the team heads back to the field. They
fall behind 24-10 as thoughts of their poor coach course through their
heads.
With only 2:14 left, Moeller staggers onto the field.
The players are shocked.

State's (8-4, 6-2 tied for 3rd) third
straight bowl appearance under
coach George Perles.
But the Spartans must replace
seven starters, including all four
defensive linemen, from a defense
that led the conference in total
defense. Finding a replacement for
middle linebacker Percy Snow
will be Perles' biggest problem.
Snow captured the Butkus and
the Lombardi Award last season.
Senior outside linebackers
Carlos Jenkins and Dixon
Edwards return and hope to plug
part of the hole Snow's departure
created. Edwards was the
Spartans leading tackler (111) last
season.
On the other side of the ball,
eight starters return on offense,
including senior signal caller Dan
Enos. He finished third in the Big
Ten in passing efficiency and
total offense last season,
completing 63.8 percent of his
passes.
Enos' primary target will be
junior flanker Courtney
Hawkins. Hawkins, a member of
last season's first all-Big Ten
team, is a preseason all-America
selection. He averaged 18 yards on
60 receptions with 6 touchdowns
in 1989 and runs the 40 (yards) in
a blazing 4.3 seconds.
The running game will miss
the presence of Blake Ezor, but
the return of four starters from
the offensive line will open up
plenty of holes for tailbacks Tico
Duckett and Hyland Hickson.
The Spartans also boast the
best kicking tandem in the
conference in punter Josh
Butland and kicker John
Langelohabut Michigan State
does not possess as much talent as
Michigan, Illinois or Ohio State.
INDIANA JJ
Though coach Bill Mallory's
Hoosiers return ten starters from
last season, losing the two major
weapons of your offense can be
detrimental. The graduation of
quarterback Dave Schnell and
tailback Anthony Thompson,
runner-up for the Heisman
Trophy last season, will be felt all
around Bloomington.
Indiana will look to its veteran
defense to help regain the winning
ways after a disappointing 5-6 (3-
5, tied for 6th) finish last season
after three consecutive wining
seasons.
1989 All-Big Ten cornerback
Mike Dumas returns for his
senior year, but will move to free

safety where his speed and range
could make him a bigger force to
opponents. Noseguard Larry
McDaniel and linebackers Mark
Hagen and Greg Farrall provide
experience and support up the
middle.
In Schnell's absence, walk-on
Chris Dyer emerged as the No. 1
quarterback in spring drills.
Junior college transfer Vaughn
Dunbar and Steve Goodrich will
attempt to fill Thompson's shoes,
but filling 1,793 yards and 24
touchdowns will take a major
effort.
The Hoosiers can take solace
in the fact that Ohio State,
Michigan, and Illinois all visit
Bloomington, but conference
opponents can take heart in the
fact that Thompson will be
absent from Indiana's backfield.

It's a surprise to see the
Boilermakers picked to finish this
high irr one of the best conferences
in the nation, but with Eric
Hunter guiding'the offense,
Purdue will continue to improve.
Before the scrambling
sophomore gained his starting role
last season, the Boilermakers were
1-6. Purdue split the final four
games, giving Michigan a battle,
to finish 3-8 (2-6, tied for 8th).
Hunter's play was recognized
by many and earned him the Big
Ten Rookie of the Year. He threw
for 1,368 yards and 11
touchdowns, becoming the first
quarterback ever to throw four
scores in one game against the
Wolverines.
Besides Hunter, Purdue
returns six offensive and eight
defensive starters. The biggest loss
on offense will be the absence of
flanker Calvin Williams to the
Philadelphia Eagles o" the NFL.
Jerome Sparkman led the team
in rushing last season and along
with Tony Vinson, will lead the
ground attack. Senior middle
linebacker Darrin T~ieb leads the
defense and will be flanked by Jim
Schwantz and Eric Beatty. Trieb
ranked second in the conference in
tackles last season while
Schwantz was second in the Big
Ten in sacks.
With Hunter leading the way,
Purdue could finish with an
above .500 record for the first time
since 1984 when they finished
with a 6-3 conference record.

Now that Bo Schembechler
has stepped down as Michigan's
coach after 21 years, th-
Hawkeye's Hayden Fry is the Big
Ten's dean of coaches. Fry will
attempt to return Iowa to its
winning ways in his 12th season,
after the Hawkeyes suffered
through their first losing season
since 1980 (5-6, 3-5, tied for 6th).
Junior quarterback Matt
Rodgers leads the Hawkeye
offense. He threw for over 2,000
yards and 12 touchdowns last
season, but had to take on an
extra load as running back Tony
Stewart had not fully recovered
from reconstructive knee surgery.
Stewart, who rushed for over
1,000 yards as a sophomore,
gained only 365 yards last season
following his surgery. A healthy
return for his senior year should
take some of the pressure off
Rodgers. The backfield is also
bolstered by senior running back
Nick Bell.
Defensive tackle Jim Johnson
leads a defense that returns eight
starters, including all four
lineman. He led the Big Ten in
tackles for loss (21) and sacks (12)
in 1989.
What will prevent the
Hawkeyes from finishing above
Purdue this season is road games
at Illinois, Michigan and
Michigan State.
MINNESOTA
The Golden Gophers return 13
starters from a team that finished
6-5 (4-4, 5th), but lost its top
player to the NFL. Darrell
Thompson, Minnesota's all-time
leading rusher with 4,518 yards
and 43 touchdowns, left coach
John Gutekunst with a gaping
hole to fill.
Senior Marcus Evans and
sophomore Rick Meyer will
compete for the starting tailback
spot while junior quarterback
Scot Shaffner will once again call
the signals. Shaffner started all 11
games last year and threw for
1,373 yards and seven
touchdowns.
Besides improving the
running game without
Thompson, Gutekunst will look
to improve a defense that ranked
tenth against the pass and
surrendered 25.7 points pergame.
Senior tackle Mike Sunvold led
the team with 77 tackles and was
