COACH WANTS TO SEE IMPROVEMENT
by Matt Rennie
Daily Football Writer
Football coaches have to be eter-
nal pessimists. No matter how good
things seem to be, they can never al-
low themselves to be happy.
Michigan coach Gary Moeller
must have made a concerted effort
to keep from cracking a smile over
the weekend, after his Michigan
team beat Michigan State, 45-28.
The victory raised the Wolver-
ines' record to 2-0 in the Big Ten and
4-1 overall, but it represented much
more than that. Michigan has now
avenged all three of last season's de-
feats. The Wolverines beat Iowa and
Notre Dame earlier this season.
"That was one of my big objec-
tives coming into the season,"
Moeller said. "The worst thing
about losing those games last year
was that the rest of the year, you
keep asking yourself, 'How'd you
let that one get away?"'
However, Moeller didn't have
long to savor the moment. His mind
is now occupied with improving his
pass rush and finding a way to stop
Indiana running back Vaughn Dun-
bar. Finding a replacement for in-
jured inside linebacker Steve Morri-
son will be instrumental to both of
Redshirt frosh Marcus Walker
excelled in place of Morrison.
Walker led the Wolverines in tack-
ling with six solos and five assists.
"Walker did a good job,"
Moeller said. "He probably won't
play as well as Morrison, and I say
that not to badmouth him but as a
tribute to Steve. But Walker did a
better job than I thought he'd be
able to coming in cold."
Moeller was upset over the
amount of time Michigan State
quarterback Jim Miller had to
throw the ball.
"I wasn't pleased with the pass
rush," Moeller said. "We can't let a
guy just sit back there for as long as

M O VIN' ON UP: After Ten-
nessee's loss to Florida, the
Wolverines moved up to fourth in
the Associated Press Top 25 poll.
Florida State continues to sit atop
the poll, while Miami (Fla.) and
Washington occupy the second and
third slots, respectively. Notre
Dame rounds out the top five.
NOWHERE TO RUN: For the
fourth time this season, Michigan
held its opponent under 100 yards
rushing. The Wolverines also kept
Iowa, Notre Dame, and Boston Col-
lege under the century mark.
"Anytime you shut down your
opponents' running game, you're go-
ing to have a good chance of win-
ning," Moeller said.
MSU's Tico Duckett is contained by Michigan's Marcus Walker and Erick Anderson. Walker replaced the
injured Steve Morrison. Michigan held its opponent under 100 yards rushing for the fourth time this season.
Big Bottoms win, 6-0,
need offensive help
Students catch dose
of Midnight Madness
by Kurt Luttermoser
If you haven't heard by now, Big
Bottoms fever is sending chills
throughout the intramural football
league (IFL). However, the opening
game for Big Bottoms was not what.
the doctor ordered.
Although Big Bottoms won the
game, the 6-0 victory over Team Six
in the opening Independent A game
was not vintage Bottoms football.
Four times, Big Bottoms landed in-
side Team Six's five yard line, and
four times, they came away empty-
The only score of the game came
when Team Six's quarterback, two
yards away from his own end zone,
completed a pass to lineman Jarmen
Davis. The problem was that Davis
plays for Big Bottoms. Davis' inter-
ception proved to be the only score
in the game.
If Big Bottoms expects to unseat
defending champion Lethal Weapon
II from the throne, they must im-
prove on offense and, more impor-
tantly, scoring inside the ten-yard
line. Otherwise, Big Bottoms can
wave an IFL championship and an
invitation to the White House

Despite rumors to the contrary,
basketball fans are alive and well in
Michigan. All it took was a little
madness to draw them out.
The first Midnight Madness -
initiated this year by the Michigan
Athletic Department and the bas-
ketball staff to spur interest and
support for Wolverine basketball
- kicked off the 1991-92 season
last night at Crisler Arena.
However, for some, the madness
began Sunday night. Several die-hard
fans braved the cold and rain and
camped out in order to be the first
people in the door when Crisler
opened at 7:30 p.m. yesterday.
"No weather would stop us
from getting tickets," LSA first-
year student Marvin Solomiany
The overnight guests were joined
by more fans in the early morning
"We went inside Michigan
Stadium and did some Desmond
catches in the end zone to pass the
time," said LSA first-year student
Jeff Alexander, who showed up
with several friends at 8:30 a.m.
"This shows Michigan fans aren't
dead. We want Crisler to be like it
is at Duke and Indiana."
Students who lined up early re-
ceived another surprise. Yesterday
at 5 p.m., Wolverine coach Steve
Fisher and his assistant coaches
Perry Watson and Jay Smith
brought 20 pizzas to the fans in line
to thank them for their support.
By the time the doors opened last
night, the line of ticket buyers
stretched around the outer con-
course of Crisler.
'This shows Michigan
fans aren't dead'
LSA first-year student
Michigan ticket department of-
ficials seemed prepared for the
number of students who showed up.
"We're not going to turn down
any applications tonight," basket-
ball Sports Information Director
Bill Wickett said. "We have 5,000
tickets allotted, and if we have more
people show up, then we might have,
to do something else."
By 10 p.m., approximately 3,000
of those 5,000 tickets had been sold.

One word describes the last
meeting between the Michigan
women's soccer team and Siena
Heights - physical. Though the
Wolverines prevailed, 4-0, the score
was not indicative of the teams' ag-
gressive styles of play.
Michigan coach Phil Joyaux
noted a key difference between the
"We are very physical, but ev-
erything we do is legal," he said.
"Siena Heights gets called for a lot
of fouls. They are probably the dirt-
iest women's team I've seen."
Physical toughness will again be
a factor as the Wolverines, coming
off two victories last weekend,
square off against the Saints today
at 4:30 p.m. at Mitchell Field. The
game will match Michigan's 14-0-2.
season record against Siena Heights'
Despite Michigan's victory
against Siena Heights earlier this
season, Joyaux isn't taking the
"They are a very good team and
they normally get a bid to the
(NAIA) national playoffs," he said.
"In our last meeting, they were
missing a lot of players because of
injuries and grades. We had beaten
them before, but that game was the
first time we have won decidedly
Injuries have continued to plague
Siena Heights since their last meet
ing with the Wolverines.
"Against Michigan in the first
game, we were only working with
15 or 16 girls," Siena Heights coach
Phil Weaver said. "Since then, we've.
been hit with a lot of injuries in
very crucial positions. We're now
down to 11 or 12 players."
This will allow Siena Heights
only limited substitutions, whereas
the Wolverines will be able to sub-
stitute freely with well over 20
players available on the roster.
