It appears Michigan basketball
coach Steve Fisher will not replace
departed assistant coach Mike Boyd
for some time. Fisher, who just
finished fall recruiting, said last
week that he has done little to find a
"It might not happen until the
spring," Fisher said. "It may happen
Wfter the first of the year. I don't
have any idea at the moment who
we're going to have."
Boyd became the head coach at
Cleveland State on September 20th.
He had been an assistant with the
Wolverines for 11 years, and he was
known for his tremendous recruiting
abilities. Boyd also took with him
Michigan graduate assistant Dave
Paulsen. Paulsen will become an
*ssistant coach for the Vikings.
Troy Amaris will replace Paulsen
as the new graduate assistant.
"I almost hired Troy when I hired
Dave, so he does fit nicely," Fisher
Boyd signed with Cleveland State

facilities will be funded entirely by
eprivate grants. Athletic Director Jack
Weidenbach estimates that the
project would cost between
$750,000 and $1,000,000. The new
courts would be available to faculty,
staff and students, as well as the
men's and women's tennis teams.
A dire need to improve the
current tennis facilities has existed
for a long time. As the athletic

After a Denny Felsner goal tied the score late in the
second period, the physical play and bad feelings
between Michigan and Bowling Green came to a head,
leading to the ejection of Wolverine Chris Tamer. And
out of the game along with Tamer went the playing
ability of Bowling Green.
Before Felsner's goal, the two teams fought bitterly
to claim a scoring edge, each trading goals to capture
and then relinquish the lead. Yet, the fight which ensued
after Felsner's goal, and caused Tamer's disqualification,
seemed to punch the air out of the Falcons.
Bowling Green managed only one shot on goal in
the rest of the second period and seven in the third.
Their defense allowed Michigan to tally three more
goals, two of which were breakaways, giving the
Wolverines a 7-4 victory in their home opener.
The trouble ensued when Bowling Green's Branden
Shavchook two-handed Felsner roughly after the score.
Within seconds four other players were involved in the
skirmish next to the Bowling Green net. Two
Wolverines, Felsner and frosh Aaron Ward and three
Falcons, Shavchook, Llew Ncwana, and Jim Solly were
penalized for roughing, with Tamer getting a five
minute penalty for fighting and a disqualification that
will keep him out of next Friday's matchup with
"I turned around after Denny scored and I saw
everyone assembling," defenseman Ward said. "I saw
one Bowling Green player (Shavchook) in the middle of
the pile and the shoving started. One guy (Ncwana) just
came jumping in real fast and went a little crazy. He
started pulling at my helmet and I wasn't doing
anything for the first 10 to 15 seconds, but he wanted to
Just over a minute later, with three skaters on each
side, Mark Ouimet scored to give Michigan the lead for
good. After a slight confrontation at center ice, Ouimet
gained control of the puck, picked up speed, and took a
quick forehand shot from the left side and into the net. It
was Ouimet's second score of the game and only second
on the season.
"They're not the kind of team we can play with
three-on-three or four-on-four," Bowling Green coach
Jerry York said of the Wolverines. "They're top players

Ouimet's heralded line, comprised of himself,
Felsner, and (David) Roberts, accounted for four of
Michigan's seven goals and racked up a total of eight
assists. The Wolverines' number one line showed its
true colors Friday, which was absent the night before in
the team's 8-3 first game loss Thursday.

Michigan defensive back Dwayne Ware (8) scoops up a punt blocked by Dave Ritter and retuns it seven yards for a touchdown. The touchdown gave
the Wolverines a 20-10 lead late in the third quarter. The Wolverines lost 24-23 as they could not hold on to another fourth quarter lead.
Only conversion question now is Why.
The two-point conversion haunted Michigan
for an entire week.
And, yes, they brought back the horror for an
Just one short week ago, the Wolverines
watched in gaping astonishment as a shove, a
trip, a drop and a referee snuffed out the life from
the No. 1 team in the country.
This week, though, Michigan did it to them-
selves, without the knowledge of only :06 sec-
onds left and without the blatant, cold stare of in-
justice. It took a bit longer for this one to sink
in, but, inevitably, the whole game boiled down
to one bad call that loomed larger than life. And
no one lingered behind to blame except the
With the score 14-10 in the third quarter,
Michigan took advantage of a poor snap to Iowa
punter Jim Hujsak as David Ritter broke through
the line and blocked the kick. Dwayne Ware
scrambled for the ball as it bounded to the seven-
yard line, grasped it in his arms, and dashed into
the end zone for the score. The lead jumped to
20-10, and a J.D. Carlson point after touchdown
would force Iowa to score two touchdowns to re-
gain the lead.
Ryan Then, the oddities began.
Schreiber The Wolverines lined up in
their typical extra-point forma-
tion: the snapper, the holder
and the kicker in position with
the rest of the offensive line to
the left. While everyone waited
for the eight players to join the
other three, Eric Traupe
snapped the ball to Jarrod
Bunch who tried to ram it in
for two points.
The Hawkeyes responded
and stuffed Bunch well short of
the goal, leaving over 105,000 people scratching
their heads in bewilderment.
"This is coaching," Michigan coach Gary
Moeller said. "We tried it. It was covered prop-
erly. We tried it anyway, but we couldn't get it
in. It's my call."
Okay. Fine. So it was a failed attempt. But
why attempt it at all? The difference between an
11-point and a 12-point margin was, at the time,
insignificant, and the miss left a 10-point differ-
ence from which Iowa could easily recover. A
touchdown and a field goal now resulted in a
deadlock, and not a slim, one-point lead.
Instead, Iowa went on to score two touch-
downs to Michigan's one field goal, which left
not only a one-point difference on the
scoreboard, but another bitter taste in Moeller's
mouth and a second Big Ten loss.
Iowa coach Hayden Fry thought he had a suf-
ficient reason for Michigan's inexplicable at-

The defeat marked the first time
Michigan has lost two consecutive
home games or Big Ten games in
the same season in 23 years. The
loss also marked theteam's first
homecoming loss since 1967 and the
Wolverines (3-3, 1-2) now sit tied
for sixth place in the Big Ten with
Northwestern and Michigan State.
"I'm stunned," Michigan offen-
sive guard Dean Dingman said.
"Two weeks in a row? There's been
nothing like it since I've been here."
Wolverine safety Tripp Welborne
agreed. "I'm not used to coming in
here (press conference) two weeks in
a row after losses."
According to Hawkeye coach
Hayden Fry, Iowa is sitting in the
caboose, but is on the train for the
conference title. But Fry was not too
concerned with the conference race
after the game.
"Can you believe this? Two
times in Michigan in the same
year," he said. "I'm happier than if

It finally happened.
Months of losing, embarrassment, excuses, and close-calls are over - at
least for this week.
The Michigan volleyball team won and won big in three weekend
matches at Marquette. The Wolverines (4-16 overall) swept Oakland -
University and Northern Michigan, and held off a stubborn Michigan Tech.
