Instead, Purdue was forced to use
hrt sideline passes and hope for the
'eivers to pick up yardage.
"We didn't want to give (Hunter)
those deeper throws when he was
scrambling around," Moeller said.
"That was called 80 bubble
route," Hunter said of the sideline
flicks. "They weren't giving us
anything deep so we took what was

advantage when David Ritter and
Dwayne Ware paired up for a repeat

unscathed into the endzone. The

"I could see (Ritter) coming,"
Bruun said. "I tried to to get the kick
up more but it didn't work."
Ware then turned around and
covered the ensuing kickoff at the
Purdue 20, allowing Elvis Grbac
(11-of-28, 160 yards) to lead the
Wolverines to another score.
"We gave them 14 points on our
mistakes and that hurts," Purdue
coach Fred Akers lamented.

Michigan was the best team he had
seen this season.
"They're good at it," Akers said.
"They believe they can get it done.
We felt they were the best special
team football team we faced this
year. But, we also think we are every
bit as good. We thought the two
,st teams were meeting out there
,and they made the best plays."
It's easy to trace back to the
reason for Michigan's special team
awareness. In September of 1989,
Raghib "Rocket" Ismail of Notre
Dame broke two kickoff returns for
touchdowns, bringing a Michigan
loss and the special teams to an all-

While Purdue held Michigan's
offense in check during the second
half, allowing only one touchdown,
the damage had already been done.
Allen Jefferson scored a career-
high three touchdowns, all from
short distances, while Jon Vaughn
racked up another 100-plus yard
game, tallying 139 yards.
The defense was keyed by the
return of John Milligan, who has
been idle since breaking his foot
against Notre Dame. Milligan
recorded nine tackles, while Tripp
Welborne contributed 16 and Eric
Anderson, ten. Anderson, Todd Plate
and Dave Dobreff each picked off one
of Hunter's passes.
Which of course, on Poultry
Day, left Purdue feeling a little...

road game against the Boilermakers.
Ernest Calloway, who was back
to receive the kickoff, explained that
there was confusion over the short
boot. "The ball got caught up in the
wind and went real high," Calloway
said. "When it finally came down, it
took a bad bounce. The other guy in
front of me was backing up and I
"Ever since last year at home
with the Rocket getting on the cover
of Sports Illustrated because of us,
we have taken a special attitude
toward special teams," Ritter said.
"We're going to put anybody in
there that has the right attitude.
Since day one our key word has just
been attitude, desire just to get to the
ball and make things happen."
Ritter and Ware have given the
Wolverines that desire.
"When we have the chance to
come up with the big play, our
special teams are doing it," free
safety Vada Murray said. "With
David and Dwayne, when we need
something, to get our momentum,
these guys come up with the big
play. Whether it's a blocked punt, or
recovering a kickoff, they're coming
up with the big play at the right
time and it's helping us a lot."

WEST LAFAYETTE -
Who's wearing the polyester in
the press box this week?
Four bowl representatives,
wearing brightly colored sport
coats representing their respective
bowls, were watching Michigan
this weekend. (It's obvious that
none had an interest in 1-7
Three New Year's Day Bowls
were in attendance (Cotton, Citrus
and Gator) as well as the
December 28 Blockbuster Bowl.
If the Wolverines can defeat
Illinois this week and finish their
season at 8-3, it appears they will
play on the first of the new year.
Their chance at playing in the
Citrus improved greatly when No.
1 ranked Virginia lost to Georgia
Tech Saturday. The Citrus bowl
gives an automatic invitation to
the ACC winner.
If Virginia had remained top
ranked at the conclusion of the
season, the Citrus would have
attempted to put together a nation-
al championship matchup, thus
leaving out the Wolverines.
With that possibility gone, the
door is open for Michigan. The
Wolverines have never played in a
Cotton or Citrus Bowl. The
Cotton, played in Texas, also
lusts heavily after Michigan - as
does the Gator.
The Blockbuster Bowl, a newly
created bowl to be played in
Miami, would like to start off
with a bang and land the Wolver-
ines. However, it appears their
only shot might come if Michigan
drops another game.
