Ouch! Stubborn pains
plaue Moeller' s men
by Matt Rennie
Daily Football Writer
The current breather in Michigan's schedule could not come at a more
opportune time for coach Gary Moeller's Wolverines. They need a chance
to lick their wounds.
After losing Bobby Powers during the Minnesota game Friday night,
Moeller is down to three healthy bodies at inside linebacker: starters Er-
ick Anderson and Marcus Walker, and backup Nate Holdren. Powers' in-
jury is the latest in a series of ailments at what seems to be a jinxed posi-
tion for the Wolverines.
Michigan has been without the services of Curt Mallory and An-
thony Kendrick since the beginning of the season. The roster continued to
thin at this position when Dave Dobreff was lost to a knee injury. Still,
the Wolverines had five available players, so Moeller had no reason to
Then, starter Steve Morrison went down against Michigan State.
That, combined with the loss of Powers, gives Moeller reason to worry.
"Finding a fourth linebacker is a major concern," Moeller said. "It's
conceivable that we could lose two players in a game."
This isn't Moeller's only area of concern. His offensive line has also
sustained significant injuries. After center Steve Everitt hurt his ankle
against Indiana, Michigan brought in Marc Milia, who promptly injured
his own ankle.
DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE: As Wolverine receiver Desmond
Howard's Heisman Trophy stock continues to rise, Moeller grows cau-
tious of how the media will affect both Howard and the team.
"Him being in the position that he is is a compliment to the whole
team," Moeller said. "The biggest thing about all the publicity is that it
cannot distract from our team, and if I ever feel like it is, we will stop a
lot of those things."
Netters face EMU
as tough stretch

Last weekend's victories over
Illinois and Purdue constituted the
Michigan volleyball team's first
weekend sweep against Big Ten
teams this season. It also marked the
beginning of a difficult stretch in
which the Wolverines play five
matches in eight days, the midpoint
being tonight's contest against
Eastern Michigan (3-7 Mid-Ameri-
can Conference, 7-14 overall).
"This weekend took a lot out of
us, both physically and emotion-
ally," Michigan coach Peggy
Bradley-Doppes said. "Physically
we're a little tired because we've
been playing eight or nine players a
game and they don't get the chance
Bradley-Doppes decided to call
off practice yesterday so the
Wolverines could recuperate before
tonight's game. Michigan's only
practice before the match will be
light serving and returning drills
this afternoon, she said.
"Eastern will be ready to play
us," Bradley-Doppes said. "You can
never take them lightly. They have
been playing well the last week or
so, but if we play at the level we've
been playing at the last two weeks
we'll be in good shape."
The Wolverines will continue to
rely on the outside-hitting of
Michelle Horrigan, who leads the
team with 4.4 kills per game and is
second in the Big Ten in that cate-
gory. Horrigan contributed 18 kills
to the Michigan attack against Pur-
Middle-blocker Aimee Smith is
also coming off of an impressive
performance over the weekend. She
tallied 14 kills against Illinois and
a Michigan season-high 11 blocks
The Wolverines' defense received
an added spark from JoAnna Col
lias, who came off the bench against
Purdue to record 33 digs.
"We're playing great, great de-
fense," Bradley-Doppes said. '
"We're out-digging our opponents.
Who would have thought Michigan
would be doing that a year ago? I'm
happier with that than the win on
Friday (against Illinois)."
However, the defense has been
weakened somewhat in the last
week by the absence of Autumn
Collins, who fractured her left hand
in a collision with a teammate dur-
ing practice last Monday.
Michigan reserve linebackers Nate Holdren and Marcus Walker combine
for a tackle during last Friday's game against Minnesota.

For the third straight Friday af-
ternoon, the Michigan men's cross
country squad ran at the Huron Golf
Club in Ypsilanti. At the Eastern
Michigan University Classic, a non-
scoring meet, individuals represent
their schools and no point totals are
kept for the teams.
With Michigan's top seven run-
ners taking a break from competi-
tion, a few of the younger runners
were afforded the opportunity to
lead the way. First-year runner Ian
Forsyth finished the 5,000-meter
run in 25 minutes, 6 seconds.
Forsyth, from London, Ontario,
placed first for Michigan and third
Although weather conditions
were not ideal, they were typical for
a fall cross country meet. On a chal-
lenging course, in a driving rain, the
numerous hills were the least of
"I've been sick lately but I seem
to be getting better now," Forsyth
"We really weren't running
against people that were as good as
what we have faced in past meets,
but we weren't too concerned with
that during the run," he added.
Because the meet was not scored
on the basis of team points, the indi-
viduals did not have to be as con-
cerned about their contribution to
the team anu were aui e cuncen-
trate on personal goals.
"You're running more for your-
self and the ideal of the team
doesn't really apply," Forsyth said.
By virtue of Forsyth's first-
place finish for the Wolverines, he
occupies the eighth spot on the
depth chart for the Big Ten meet
this weekend at Purdue. According
to Big Ten rules, each team is al-

the meet, with the top five from
each school counting for the team
score. However, there is a Big Ten
meeting scheduled this week at
which the conference may decide to
permit teams to take nine runners to
the meet. Forsyth and Jason Colvin,
Michigan's ninth runner, would
travel with the team as alternates if
the rule is not changed.

The Michigan men's soccer club
had big expectations going into last
weekend's regional club tournament
in Champaign, Ill., but finished
with a 2-0-2 record and a second-
place finish. The Wolverines failed
to gain an automatic bid to the na-
tional tournament in Austin, Texas.
Michigan (8-8-3) opened the
tournament Saturday by defeating
Minnesota, 3-0, behind Mark
Kuiper's strong goaltending.
The Wolverines next played
Purdue, and quickly fell behind, 3-1.
With 20 minutes left in the game,
Michigan's Jason Cardasis closed
the gap with a corner kick that
banged off the Purdue goaltender
and into the net. The remainder of
the match was controlled by the
Wolverines, who let loose a barrage
of shots that led to aegame-tying
goal by Brian Rosewarne.
However, Michigan was unable
to muster another goal, and settled
for a disappointing 3-3 tie with the
"We felt we should have won
the game," Rosewarne said. "The
let-up in the first half was costly
because we fell behind so quickly."
The frustration continued Sun-
day, when Michigan outplayed Illi-
nois but ended with a scoreless tie.
"Coach (Aaron Smith) told us
we were in a must-win situation,"
co-captain Dick Hillary said. "We
dominated the game, but couldn't
put the ball in the net."
