Spikers hope to continue
rocking as they hit the road

When confronted with a prob-
lem, there are usually two ways to
approach it. Do you ask for financial
aid, or do you drop out of school?
Do you study for both tests on the
same day so you do all right on both,
or do you concentrate on one and
blow off the other? Do you pop that
zit, or do you Clearasil it to death?
The Indiana and Ohio State vol-
leyball teams encounter an ordeal of
a similar nature this weekend when
they take on the Michigan squad, led
by star outside hitter Michelle
Horrigan. How does a team neutral-
ize Horrigan? This weekend's oppo-
nents approach this matter differ-
"We have to accept that Horri-
'Ogan will get her kills, and we can't
let her get to us," Ohio State assis-
tant coach Steve Pickering said. "We
have to make sure the other players
don't hurt us."
"We have to contain her," Indi-
ana coach Tom Shoji said. "We can't
let her get going; she's the type of
player who can carry a team."
Of course, the differing perspec-
tives are partly attributable to the
d~iiffering fortunes of the two
squads. Ohio State (10-0 in the Big
Ten, 17-3 overall) is enjoying an
immensely successful season.
With a starting squad of three se-
niors and three first-year players,
the Buckeyes have a healthy mix of
youth and experience. Michigan
coach Peggy Bradley-Doppes real-
izes it will take a strong effort
from her players to register a vic-
"We're going to have strong, ag-
gressive serving, and we've been
working on digging as well," she
said. "If we have strong serving,
they can't run our offense down our
Another factor in a potential
Wolverine triumph is confidence.
So, you've been keeping track of the Middle East Peace Conference and you think it's pretty boring. That's
because you're only watching the daytime events. After dark, it's a whole different story. Just last night, before
Bush and Gorbachev left, one of the delegates stood up and shouted "You may be leaving, but I'm Too Legit To
Quit." All decorum was lost, and the world's leaders broke out in their best jivin' moves. You, too, can boogie
like Gorby and the Boyz if you get your GRIDDES picks into 420 Maynard before 5 p.m. today. You'll be
eligible for a $10 gift certificate to O'Sullivan's Eatery and Pub on South University. And you can't touch that.

Michigan's Fiona Davidson (2) plays the net against Illinois. The
Wolverines travel to Indiana and Ohio State this weekend.
"We think after the Illinois win
(Illinois is second in the Big Ten),
why can't we beat the No. 1 team?"
Before visiting Columbus Satur-
day night, Michigan (6-4, 14-6) will
take on the Hoosiers in Blooming-
ton tonight. Indiana (3-7, 6-15) has
had a rough time this year, and it
was easily defeated when it visited
Ann Arbor earlier this season.
Coach Shoji feels a large part of his
team's misfortune has to do with a
lack of concentration.
"At times we're right with a
team, but then there'll be a four or
five play swing when we look like
we're not even there," he explained.
In those spots, the other team has a
distinct advantage, and then we can't
catch up again. We've got to keep
our intensity throughout the game."
Despite the Hoosiers' shortcom-
ings, Bradley-Doppes urges her play-
ers not to take Indiana lightly. "We
have to remember that they beat us
twice last year," she said.
After this weekend's contests,
the Wolverines travel to East Lans-
ing next Wednesday to take on
Michigan State. It will complete an
exhausting stretch of four road
games in eight days.
