hatred of
by Matt Rennie
Daily Football Writer
There are certain things you
learn when you become a football
player at Michigan: (1) you never
take Bo's name in vain, (2) you
gladly trade a limb for a Rose
Bowl trip, and (3) you hate Michi-
gan State.
While the first two rules seem
a natural extension of normal cos-
mic order, the third may appear
foreign to some individuals, par-
ticularly those who were not
raised in the Great Lake State.
The nation sees Michigan as the
team that opens the season against
Notre Dame, closes it against Ohio
State, and does nothing in between.
And then, it loses the Rose Bowl
on New Years' Day.
However, for college football
fans in the state of Michigan, there
is only one football game that mat-
ters: Michigan vs. Michigan State.
This neighborhood rivalry extends
well beyond game day into bar-
room debates over which is the bet-
ter school.
State fans call Michigan people
"intellectual snobs who think the
world revolves around Ann Ar-
bor." Michigan fans call State peo-
ple "moronic wannabes who
would have gone to Michigan if
their test scores were good
enough."
While these verbal clashes are
rarely heard outside of state lines,
it doesn't take long for Michigan
football players to learn the im-
portance of the rivalry.
"When I first came here, it was
just another game, really," said
inebacker Erick Anderson, who is
from Glenview, Ill. "Now, I know
what people are talking about.
There's a lot of intensity out on
that field, a lot of emotion.
"Along with Ohio State, this is
probably our biggest game of the

partans
year.
Senior safety David Ritter
wasn't familiar with the nature of
this game either when he was
growing up in Hickory Hills, Ill.
He, too, learned that this game re-
quired a special mind set.
"When you're talking about a
game that really picks up the
tempo, it's got to be Michigan
State," Ritter said. "A season can
be made or broken because of this
game."
Michigan learned that lesson
last year when the Spartans beat
the top-ranked Wolverines, 28-27,
in Ann Arbor. While everyone re-
members the controversy sur-
rounding Michigan's failed two-
point conversion in the game's last
minute, Wolverine coach Gary
Moeller recalls the Spartans mov-
ing the ball at will against the
Wolverines. The defensive captain
Anderson has been anxiously
awaiting his shot at vindication.
"The fact that we lost stuck
with us all summer," Anderson
said. "Records don't matter at this
point."
Moeller agrees that the Spar-
tans' 0-4 record will not make the
Wolverines' preparation any less
intense this week.
"If you don't get up for this
game," Moeller said, "then you're
not ready to play football at
Michigan."
IN THE TRENCHES: One of
the main factors aiding Jesse John-
son's 168-yard debut against Iowa
was the dominance of the Wolver-
ine offensive line. Although
Moeller conceded that the line did
not react well initially, he was
pleased with the balance between
both sides of the line.
"I'm really pleased with what
(right tackle) Rob Doherty has
done for us so fair," Moeller said.
"He should have been the weak

So far this season, the Michigan
men's golf team has generally
placed where everyone thought it
would in tournaments. The Wolver-
ines seem to be just one round away
in each competition from being
exceptional.
Last weekend's third-place per-
formance at the Fall Buckeye
Classic in Columbus followed that
same course. Entering the tourna-
ment, Michigan coach Jim Carras
felt that Kent State and host Ohio
State would contend for the title.
Carras proved to be prophetic, as
Kent State won the tournament
while the Buckeyes took second.
Kent State finished well out in
front of the twelve-team field. The
Golden Flashes' team score over the
54-hole tournament at the Scarlet
Golf Course was 898. Ohio State
followed with 926, while Michigan
placed five strokes back with 931.
"We were ahead of Ohio State
after the first round and then
dropped back, so I still think that
we are capable of playing better,"
Carras said. "We have some talented
kids, but we just haven't put it all
together yet."
Individually for Michigan, Dean
Kobane and Bob Henighan played
solid rounds. Both were ten shots
back of medalist Brian Tisdelle of
Kent State, who shot 220. Their
scores of 230 were good enough for
a seventh-place tie.
"I was very pleased with
Henighan's score," Carras said. "He
improved from being fifth on the
team at the last tournament. This is
the kind of performance that I ex-
pect from him more often."
Anthony Dietz also shot a good.
round for the Wolverines. He carded
a 232 (76-79-77), the third-best
score for the Wolverines, and cap-
tured tenth place overall.
Also competing for Michigan

were Denny Sikkila and Carl
Condon. Sikkila took 29th place
overall with a 240 (75-81-84),
while Condon tied for 43rd with a
score of 247 (78-83-86).
"So far, we have lacked the con-
sistency that I think that we are ca-
pable of," Carras said. "If we can
get all of our players to play well, I
think that we have the potential to
be a very strong team."
Next up for Michigan is the
Persimmon Ridge Intercollegiate
Golf Tournament. The 54-hole
tournament takes place in
Louisville Oct. 13-15.
Women's golf
washed out
Coming off a strong showing, it
looked like there was no stopping
the Michigan women's golf team
going into the Northern Illinois
Huskie Classic on Friday.
However, the improving Wol-
verine squad was indeed slowed, as
the tournament at the Oak Club of
Genoa, Ill., was cancelled. Heavy
rains forced the teams in after only
two holes Friday, and play was
called off for the day. When the
heavy rains persisted into Saturday
morning, the tournament was called
off. The Wolverines stayed in town
long enough to take in a movie and
then took the next flight home.
While the Wolverines were ea-
ger to keep up their good play,
LeClair didn't think the cancella-
tion would hurt the team.
"I think it just might be to our
advantage," LeClair said. "We got a
chance to break up the monotony
that had set in. All of the girls get
along great and they had a chance to
be together."
The team will spend the week
preparing for its tournament this
weekend at Penn State.

link for us, experience-wise, but
he's come through."
Moeller also had high praise for
center Steve Everitt, who came
back a week earlier than anticipated
from the broken jaw he suffered
against Notre Dame. Moeller re-
ported that the team honored
Everitt by choosing him to lead the
post-game, lockerroom rendition
of "The Victors."
YOUTH MOVEMENT: Sopho-

rison and redshirt frosh Tony Hen-

11 tackles, eight of them solos,
while Henderson made some noise
at middle guard with five solo
tackles.

Wolverine icers seek improvement after banner year

by Josh Dubow
Daily Hockey Writer
While the boys of summer hung
up their spikes Sunday after a long,
grueling season of baseball, the boys
of winter laced up their skates for
the first official day of hockey prac-
tice yesterday.
The Michigan hockey team began
its quest for improvement over last
season's record-setting 34-10-3
mark.
While Michigan has been infor-
mally skating the last few weeks,
new NCAA regulations prohibited
official practice until yesterday.
Michigan coach Red Berenson has
been anxiously looking forward to
that date.
"We've been waiting all summer
for this," Berenson said. "With
only three weeks before our first

& i:":f ./ . tarouF::na ar:vrae _:......?$ri

game, we can't waste any time."
The new rules limit preseason
practice and the regular season to
only 22 weeks. Last season, the
Wolverines had five weeks of train-
ing camp prior to opening night, but
Berenson does not feel this year's
rushed preseason will hurt
Michigan's preparations.
" This (time off) gave the team a
chance to get ready off the ice and to
get to know each other," he said.
"Now, we have to take advantage of
the next three weeks."
The Yost Ice Arena ice was more
crowded than usual yesterday due to
a plethora of walk-ons attempting
to make the Wolverine squad.
Berenson and his coaching staff are
one of the few that permits walk-
ons to practice with the rest of the
team. He will weed out the prospec-
tive players in the next few days,
and if there are any promising candi-
dates, Berenson will keep them on
the squad.
The primary task for Michigan
after the roster is finalized will be

trying out different line combina-
tions and defensive pairings.
Berenson expects five lines and
eight defensemen to materialize.
"If the team is healthy, we
should have a lot more depth than in
the past," Berenson said. "We
should be in pretty good shape.
We're a year older and stronger than
last year because we returned most
of our guys. If we can avoid the un-
usual injuries, we will be fine."
The Wolverines must especially
avoid injuries in goal. Currently,
Michigan has only two goalies -
sophomores Chris Gordon and Steve
Shields. Another goalie is trying to
walk on, but Berenson said he will
be content with only two goal-
tenders.
Frosh Al Logis from
Indianapolis is expected to join the
squad at the beginning of winter
term. Logis is completing the neces-
sary credits he needs to enroll at
Michigan this semester while play-
ing for his junior team.

STUDY FOR ONE YEAR OR FOR ONE OR TWO TERMS IN
OXFORD
and live with British Students
HOW WISC IS DIFFERENT FROM MOST OVERSEAS PROGRAMS:
" Accepted students receive admissions letters (and later transcripts)
directly from an Oxford (or Cambridge) college.
" Students are directly enrolled as full students of the Oxford college.
" Qualified early applicants may share a co-ed Student Residence
associated with St. Catherine's College, Oxford (fully integrated with
British students).
* Students accepted before November 1 (for the Winter Term) or before
May 1 (for next year) are guaranteed housing with British students.
" Students will NOT be taught in (and receive transcripts from) an
American college operating in Oxford. WISC is one of the few completely
integrated (academicany and in housing) overseas programs in the UK.
" Previous students in your field will speak to you on the phone.
