LW II looks to defend TM title

by Kurt Luttermoser
It's kickoff time once again -
intramural football style, that is.
Last Tuesday and Wednesday, over
300 fledging football teams flocked
to the intramural sports building to
sign up for the upcoming IM foot-
ball season.
These gridiron heros and hero-
ines have been waiting for this mo-
ment since the closing of last year's
season. Pre-season games are already
underway, mascots have been found,
and yes, a coach has even been fired.
Let's take a sneak peek at the respec-
tive leagues and teams with a fore-
cast of what lies ahead.
Each team will play three games
during the regular season. Play-offs
begin immediately thereafter, with
all teams being eligible regardless
of record. All contests take place
Sundays through Thursdays. Game
times vary from 3 p.m. on Sundays
to late night Thursdays at 10 p.m.
Some of the best competition
will be found in the Independent A
division. Last year's powerhouse,
Lethal Weapon II, is back with the
same ammo. Weapon II is rated
number one in Jim Sheists' monthly
"Intramural Football: It's not just
another game" manual. Sheists lists
Weapon II's schedule and last year's
draft as major reasons for LW II to
be favored to take the title again.

Other perennial favorites include
Dr. Mob, The Morgue, and Big Bot-
toms. Talk about mud flaps, Big
Bottoms got 'em. This team will
rely on its massive offensive line to
open holes for its option running at-
tack and, more importantly, control
the time clock. Big Bottoms wide
receiver Glenn Higgins, who led
last year's Independent B league in
touchdown receptions, is looking
forward to the jump to A league
"I'm really excited about play-
ing in A this year," Higgins said,
"and I'm hoping we get to the play-
offs with a chance to meet Lethal
Weapon II."
Teams to keep an eye on in B
league competition include the
Peanuts Gang, Elmo Street Night-
mares, and The Jerks. Co-Rec soft-
ball champions, Rexa-Dog, are back
looking for another piece of hard-

ware to add their mantle shelf. In
fraternity competition, Sigma Nu
should again dominate the headlines.*
So says prognosticator Sheists.
Some rules to be aware of: Teams
must have 5 players to start the
game, 6 for Co-Rec. There will be no
timeouts, unless called by the ref-
eree for injuries or for T.V. pur-
poses. Jerseys of contrasting colors
must be wdrn by each team; plaid is
forbidden. And lastly, teams may
use their own ball on offense, being
either of pebble-grained leather or
rubber covered. Nerfs are not al-
lowed. Game results will appear in
next week's IM Beat.
ARBOR- If wishing to engage in
some ice-capades, hockey sign up
deadline is Oct. 9. Interested skaters
can sign up at the intramural sports
building or call 763-3562 for more
