locked out of the more prestigious
Cotton and Sugar bowls.
Michigan coach Gary Moeller
said there were discussions about the
Wolverines taking the empty Fiesta

ground. The late afternoon kickoff

"We're really excited," Gator
Bowl selection committee member
Tommy Gay said. Gay was president
of the Gator Bowl when the
Wolverines last participated in the
Bowl in 1979, and has attended
Michigan's games the past four
weeks. "The fact that we ended up
with the Big Ten runner-up is better
than we anticipated earlier. We
thought we would be in the position
to take the loser of the Michigan-
Ohio State game."
Moeller attempted to put the best
spin on the situation. "It's a reward
or the kids at the end of the season,"
oeller said. "It is definitely a
reward. If you like to play football,
you like to play football, and you
get the opportunity to play.
"The most concern I had about
the bowls, and I talked to (interim
athletic director) Jack (Weidenbach),
was that we could go first class and
not lose a lot of money. That's very
important. We can do that with both

on ESPN. If the Wolverines wind up
in the Liberty Bowl, held on
December 27, they would probably
face Air Force.
The Liberty Bowl takes the top
4ervice academy team as long as it
has a winning record. Air Force is
currently 5-5, and faces Texas El-
Paso Saturday.
"There are good teams not even
going to bowls," Moeller said. "We
were in the position to talk to some
people about the Cotton Bowl and

The Bentley Historical Library
now contains the Rolls Royce of
athletic department archives. In
conjunction with the library, the
university department of inter-
collegiate athletics has compiled a
vast collection of documents to be
properly stored and organized.
Starting in June 1992, the public
will be able to research Michigan's
athletic history through clippings,
microfilms and documents.
The Bentley will be "the best
place to come for research on
Michigan athletics," said associate
archivist Marjorie Barritt.
The more than 100 scrapbooks
contain clippings dating back to
1900 from the Michigan Daily,
Detroit News, Detroit Free Press,
and other newspapers. The scrap-
books also contain notes, photos,
correspondence, and speeches of
former Michigan coaches and admin-
The library will contain the
general administrative records of how
the athletic department operated from
the first athletic director Charles
Baird through recent athletic director
Don Canham. The library expects
notes from Bo Schembechler to join
the collection later.
The project started about four
years ago under the leadership of
sports information director Bruce
Madej. Madej credits former director
Will Perry with starting the organi-
zation of documents. The project
went into full swing once Jack
Weidenbach took over as inter-im
athletic director earlier in the year.
"The sports information depart-

years ago things were becoming very
disorganized," Madej said. "Will
Perry made quantum leaps in organ-
izing the documents, and over the
last four years we've done even
"We t'ook a look at a major
problem developing. We don't have
the historical background and library
skills here at the sports information
department to store all of the
documents," Madej continued. "We
don't have the proper storage areas to
keep the scrapbooks and films in
good condition, so we got in touch
with the library."
Kinney said the first job of the
project is to convert all of the scrap-
books into microfilm, in order to
preserve them. This phase should be
completed by March. Then, all the
game films will be placed on video
cassette and inventoried and cata-
The project will cost the athletic
department $84,000 over two years,
which covers supplies and a full-
time archivist.
Some material on Bennie
Oosterbaan and Fritz Crisler is
already catalogued and open for
research. Kinney feels that even-
tually there will be a demand for the
collection. "Sports management
classes will use the library for
research papers in their classes and it
will aid the athletic department
greatly in doing there own research,"
Kinney said.
"The Gary Moeller Show has
already used some of the films for a
special on the Michigan-Ohio State

One question still left unanswered
is when Michigan would arrive for
the Liberty Bowl, which falls two
days after Christmas and six days
after exams.
"I don't know," Moeller said of
when the team would arrive. "All the
details have not been worked out.
We will not leave before the exam
Also, the last time Ohio State
played in the Gator Bowl (1978) it
ended Woody Hayes' coaching career,
when he slugged an opposing player
near the end of the contest. Some
speculation has circulated that the
Buckeyes would not want to return
due to that reason and the resur-
rection of such negative publicity.
Gay believes Ohio State will attend
if they win.
"That situation happened so long
ago," Gay added. "They're trying to
play down that situation. It's un-

fortunate that the media keeps play-
ing that issue up. I don't foresee any
problem with them ;oming if they
Michigan simply ended up in a
quickly closing door and needed to
accept the few remaining openings.
"It's something like a roll of the
dice," Gay said. "I think the Holiday
Bowl jumped a little early. If they

held out they could have gotten the
third Big Ten team instead of the
Liberty Bowl."
The Holiday, held in San Diego,
pits BYU against Texas A&M.
And where do you think Wol-
verines would feel more com-
fortable? In the San Diego Zoo or
watching Elvis croon?
