Mud Bowl tie results
in jammed phone lines
Members of Phi Delta Theta and Sigma Alpha Epsilon squared off in
the 56th annual Mud Bowl in a battle to the death.
The overtime final: 6-6.
Of course, the tie put a wrench into many's Griddes picks. The Griddes
Hotline was jammed with callers Saturday and Sunday asking if picks
were made against the spread or were simply straight. SAE was a 1/2
point favorite entering the contest.
The Official Griddes Rulebook (Simon and Sez, $6.95) states all picks
are made without the benefit of a spread. Thus the tie means nobody could
win that pick.
Luckily for this week's winner, David Karp picked 15 games correct
- all of which did not end in a tie.
Don't forget to get your Griddes picks in this week for a chance to
dethrone David as Griddes champion and win a $12 dollar gift certificate to
O'Sullivan's. Drop them off by 5 p.m. Friday at the Daily at 420

"Right now I'm the starting cen-
ter, and I have to be a leader on and
off the court. I have to control the
game at all times."
With the determination Thomp-
son displays, Michigan volleyball
coach Peggy Bradley-Doppes knows
she is working with a talent.
"Tarnisha is still a little bit raw
as far as collegiate experience, but
she certainly has athletic ability,"
Bradley-Doppes said. "She's a good
setter, but also a very good blocker,
and is beginning to see the game
She knows there are many things
that she has yet to learn.
"The assistant coach (Jim Smoot)
and I were talking about it today. I
just have to be more calm and re-
laxed. I'm much more calm now
than I was in the beginning. It takes
time. It takes more games for me to
play, to learn who my hitters are,
who I can go to when it's tight and
the game is on the line."
Thompson is a capable person,
and Bradley-Doppes is confident that
her player will learn what she needs
"She's a little frustrated with her
play," Bradley-Doppes said. "I think
she wants to play at a higher level
and that's good, and I think she also
wants some great things for the team
and the program. And that's also
good...she's a very, very eager
learner and I think she's done a good
job this year."
Thompson is still young though
and whenever she looses her focus
on the floor she can count on team-
mate Heather Wells to put her back
"We're pretty good friends off the
court," Wells said. "So I think it
just helps that I know how to talk to
her, and I can tell her point blank,
what she needs to do or what's going
wrong. I tell her what the problem is
and she handles it pretty well from
me. She doesn't get upset."
Thompson is a graduate of Henry
Ford High School and didn't think
much about volleyball at the begin-
ning of her high school career.
"In high school I started and it

middle of recruiting season. In
addition, practice began last Monday.
Fisher has bigger concerns with
finding a consistent starting line-up
over an assistant coach.
"It's not an ideal time to get a
good loyal assistant to pack up
where he's been recruiting and leave
where he is now - where he's been
recruiting, where he'll sign players
In anticipation of Boyd's departure,
Fisher made sure that each of his
assistants had talked to every recruit.
The biggest concern for Fisher
right now is ifshehasthe manpower
to run practices. It will mean extra
duties for Wolverine assistant
coaches Brian Dutcher and Jay
was just for fun. I wasn't one who
was all out for volleyball. Volley-
ball, it just happened."
She realized there was more out
there for her when someone on her
team received a collegiate scholar-
ship. Now volleyball is all she
thinks about. Even when she's with
Thompson likes to spend time
with teammate Wells. They eat
Stucchi's ice cream (Thompson likes
peanut butter chip) and they always
end up talking about the same thing.
"We talk a lot about volleyball
since we're in season," Wells said.
Even though Thompson loves
the game she plays, adjusting to
Ann Arbor life was still difficult for
"When I first came here, I wasn't
too sure I wanted to be here. That I
could compete academically. I had
good grades through high school,
but college is a lot different, espe-
cially at the University of Michigan.
I just hang in there, and whenever
the going gets rough, I call my
mom and she'll encourage me to do
Thompson draws on her mother's
"I really admire my mother. Be-
cause she's very independent, and
she's always been there for me.
When things get rough here at
school, I can always call home and
she will always make me feel bet-
And Eula Thompson, Tarnisha's
mom is always happy to be there for
"I'm happy that I can be a role
model for Tarnisha, and somebody
that she looks up to," Eula Thomp-
son said. "I feel real good about it...
I taught her to be respectable and
And Tarnisha is all those things.
The two Thompson's have the
very same gentle laugh and the same
goals for Tarnisha's education.
"The most wonderful thing that
could ever have happened to Tarnisha
is to go to the University of Michi-
gan... That was one of our goals for
her to go to college. And I wanted
her to go the best college. I know
she'll get a good education there."
Maybe that's why Mrs. Thomp-
"So far it's gone pretty good,"
Fisher said. "We don't have a guy
fresh out of college who's our grad
assistant. Troy's 27, he's coached. I
feel comfortable giving him a couple
of kids in practice and not having to
look over his shoulder. It might
mean I gotta do even more hands-on
stuff and break-downs."
Fisher said he will consider both
Detroit area high school, as well as
college coaches nationwide as Boyd's

Now Tarnisha is much more
comfortable at Michigan, and is
completely focused on volleyball.
To her there are certain feelings that
she gets on the court that are irre-
placeable. Like setting up the perfect
"With the perfect set and some-
one kills it you immediately know.
"My arms go up in the air and
it's like an all-time high. It's the
greatest feeling. Like Peggy told us
one time, 'It should feel like you
don't want to be anywhere else.' At
that moment you love volleyball.
You love what you're doing. You
In the coming years, Thompson
should will continue to experience
"She has a bright future,"
Bradley-Doppes said. "She really
does... She's a real delight on the
team. Cute, real personable, and
she's a real team player."
So what is in store for Thomp-
son beyond the confines of college?
She is studying toward a degree in
Kinesiology. One of her goals is to
be a nutritionist.
"I don't know if I want to go to
grad school... I'm not sure exactly
what I want to do right now. I need
to think about that, but I do want to
go in that direction (kinesiology).",
Anyone who knows Tarnisha's
have nothing but good words for her.
Teammate Autumn Collins thinks
Thompson is "full of life and full of
energy." Her coach couldn't agree
"She's a great kid," Bradley-
Doppes said. "She's fun loving, gen-
tle, kind, athletic individual."
And what about those old gyri
"I never liked gym shoes," Eula
Thompson said. "I only wanted them

Now it's volleyball season, and
for Tarnisha Thompson it's almost
always time for gym.
