team. More common are younger,
wider-eyed players like Desmond
Howard: "My personal goal is to
help my team win the national
championship."
In August, a reporter asked
Howard to choose which rival he
wants to beat most - Michigan
State, Ohio State, or Notre Dame.
"Notre Dame," he replied.
"We haven't beaten them since
I've been here."
Notre Dame? A historic
contest, steeped in prominence
and tradition, but irrelevant in the
quest for the Big Ten title. A more
appropriate choice would be Ohio
State, the team Michigan usually
plays. for the conference title. Or
Michigan State, the Wolverines'
most stubborn obstacle in the road
to Pasadena this year. Instead,
Howard chose the game with the
largest national stake.
How does Gary Moeller feel
about this change in attitude?
After all, he coached under
Schembechler for 18 years, and
now, in his second season at the
helm, Moeller has experienced the
pressure of being a national
contender for both seasons.
This year, the prospect
of topping the polls on
New Year's Day seems
as real as it does on
Labor Day.
"You can't ignore it," Moeller
said. "It's something that's right
there in front of you. We're
fortunate to be in a position where
we have that opportunity. How
many kids will play football and
never have the possibility to win
the national championship?"
But while he acknowledges the
title's importance, Moeller also
understands its detriment.
"Hopefully because of what
happened to us last year we've
learned something," he said.
"When you're ranked No. 1 four
weeks into the season and then
you lose back-to-back games to
Iowa and Michigan State, you
learn how fast the prestige drops
off. It's so important to not get soft
when people are patting you on
the back.
"Whatever happens to us, if we
go to the Rose Bowl, we've had a
successful year. Now, I know the
importance of beating Notre
Dame. I want to beat Notre
Dame. I want to beat Florida
State."
Ah, Notre Dame and Florida
State - two games on arguably
the toughest schedule in the
country and two reasons why
Moeller thinks all the title talk is
purely academic.
"I think once you get into the

0

season, you get a little better idea
of what the players want to do,"
he said. "How do you get that
feel? It's not by what they say. It's
how they work out there. Where is
their intensity? Who's going to be
the leader?
"It's easy to talk about a
national championship. It's hard to
work for one."
Of the 12 games that poten-
tially lead to the title, players and
coaches feel the first five will
present the toughest challenge.
On paper, the season opener
against Boston College looks to be
the least difficult early match-up.
But because of Michigan's
preseason buildup, Moeller
anticipates the underdog Eagles
will play an elevated game. That,
combined with the road factor and
the Wolverines' temptation to
look straight to Notre Dame,
prompts Moeller to weigh the
Boston game more importantly.
The trip to Boston gives
Michigan a warm-up game before
facing Notre Dame, an advantage
the Irish used last year to extend
their winning streak over the
Wolverines to four games. Moeller
says the Boston game was moved
to enhance its television contract,
but the most noteworthy effect is
that both Notre Dame and
Michigan will have played one
contest before their annual
meeting.
Another effect of the Boston
switch is Michigan's week off
between its two most difficult
games. While sometimes a
momentum-stopper, a midseason
hiatus can only benefit Michigan,
which next hosts No. 1 Florida
State.
Provided neither Michigan nor
Florida State loses before Sept. 27,
theirs will be the most pivotal
national match-up this season.
And even if this brutal "exhibi-
tion" season doesn't put a dent in
the Wolverines' win-loss record, it
may put one of their players on
the disabled list.
However, Moeller insists the
rest of the nation finds Michigan's
schedule more awe-inspiring than
do the Wolverines.

"There's no sense complaining
about the schedule. (former
Michigan Athletic Director Don)
Canham screwed that up years
ago, and we've got to live with his
mistake at this time," he joked.
"It is a tough schedule. But as I
tell the players, you get a chance
to play these people, and we look
forward to our pre-league schedule

to see what we can do."
Howard agreed. "That's why
guys like myself come to Michigan
- we get to play the top competi-
tion in the country."
But a key injury heading into
Michigan's next game could prove
costlier than usual, given its
opponent. The Wolverines open
their conference season at Iowa,
