GOPHERS COULD BE 2ND STRAIGHT 'M' VICTIM
Spikers set for upset
by David Schecter
Daily Sports Writer
If it's fixed, don't break it.
Last week, Michigan volleyball
coach Peggy Bradley-Doppes finally
found a combination of starters that
yielded a win, and she doesn't plan
on tampering with success this
weekend against Iowa and Min-
"We're going to stay with the ex-
act same defense and the exact same
starting lineup," said Bradley-
Doppes. The starters practiced to-
gether all this week strengthening
their play and team chemistry.
Tonight's opponent, Minnesota,
has been struggling recently.
"They're struggling at a level like
we are, and I would say that their
program has been certainly more
successful than ours. With Min-
nesota we're going to try to be very,
very aggressive and go after them,"
Tomorrow's opponent, Iowa, has
been on something of an athletic
roller coaster. The Hawkeyes are a
traditionally strong team led this
year by setter Jenny Moylan. The
Wolverines will try to run their of-
fense away from Moylan so she will
not have an opportunity to dig all
Between Minnesota and Iowa,
Bradley-Doppes likes the Wolver-
ines' chances of winning over the
Golden Gophers. "We're looking at
both teams thinking 'Hey, we just
beat Illinois,"' she said. "They have
something to be afraid of, we don't."
Last weekend the Wolverines up-
set nationally-ranked Illinois. For
the team it was a David and Goliath
type win, and it gave Michigan con-
fidence. However they can't be too
confident. The Wolverines aren't the
only team to chip away at the Big
Ten favorites. Two weeks ago Iowa
defeated the Fighting Illini 3-2.
The shock waves of the Michigan
upset are still reverberating through
the volleyball community. "I've
been getting calls all week. It's been
great for the girls," said Bradley-
Doppes. Some might think that
victory was a fluke, but Michigan
outplayed Illinois defensively, and
put together a better team perfor-
This weekend the Wolverines get
their chance to prove their doubters
The Wolverines' bowl bid is out of the hands of Michigan wide receiver Desmond Howard.
Major bowl hopes
by Ryan Schreiber
Daily Football Writer
From showdown to letdown.
Having originally, been billed
as the war for the Big Ten title,
Michigan's contest against Illinois
on Saturday has been reduced to a
battle for a respectable bowl.
Add a 54-28 Fighting Illini
loss to Iowa to two Michigan
conference losses and the result is
a non-televised game played for
pride and a possible New Year's
Day bowl bid.
Yet, the 105,000-plus fans in
attendance will certainly get what
they pay for. Illinois and
Michigan have two of the top
receiving corps in the nation, let
alone the Big Ten. And don't
expect either team to keep from
airing out the ball.
"We're going to have to throw
the ball a little," Illinois coach
John Mackovic said. "To control
the ball, we're going to have to
throw a little. We're not going to
just run on them."
Illinois quarterback Jason
Verduzco has been no slouch in
his first year at the helm,
completing a higher percentage of
passes (.640) than any other first-
year Illini passer. His 13
touchdown strikes on the season
also ranks him second on the all-
time Illinois list for first-year
quarterbacks, only one score
behind Tony Eason.
His primary target thus far has
been senior Shawn Wax, who has
caught five touchdown passes this
year (including an Illinois single-
game record three last weekend
"Shawn's fast, he's a kid that
can leap, and he's one of those
guys that wants the football,"
Michigan coach Gary Moeller
said. "He's just an excellent
Big Ten clash
Mackovic expects similar
results from the Michigan offense,
led by the Desmond Howard-
Derrick Alexander tandem at
"They'll be among the best
receiving units in the Big Ten and
maybe anywhere," Mackovic said.
Michigan will see another
advantage if the Illini exhibit the
same defensive weaknesses evident
in last week's loss to Iowa. The
Hawkeyes rushed through, over
and around the Illini defense for
335 yards, boring huge holes in
the Illini defense.
Said Moeller, "I think they just
missed a couple of key tackles and
got out of position. I still think
they have a very good defense."
The Illini have nine returning
starters from last season, including
