surely not admit to paying the Dam-
ages (read: employing a sympathetic
whistle), he did just that. Call upon
call went against Michigan for the
remainder of the game. Hightower
and his partner in crime Jody
Silvester continually blew the
whistle on Michigan's youngsters.
It was like taking from the poor
and giving to the rich.
The Wolverines committed
twice as many fouls as their hosts,
33-17. They were given only 16 free
throw attempts, while the Hoosiers
One began to wonder why
strange things were afoot at
Assembly Hall. When Chris Web-
ber was whistled for a phantom
fifth foul with six minutes left in
the game, Michigan coach Steve
Fisher provided the answer.
He told the referee, "You fouled
him out of the game." Hightower
jogged back down the court past the
Indiana bench. His time had been
served, and Knight's Hoosier eyes
VICTORY OVER SPARTANS CAPS SUCCESSFUL WEEKEND
Wrestlers make most of homestand
by Tim Rardin
Daily Sports Writer
The last four days have been busier than
usual for the ninth-ranked Michigan
wrestling team, which boasts an unblemished
6-0-1 dual record after Saturday's triple dual
meet with Central Michigan, Illinois, and
Purdue, and yesterday's meet with Michigan
The Wolverines prevailed easily over the
Spartans, 38-3. Michigan bettered last year's
29-7 effort in East Lansing.
Sean Bormet (158) and Jehad Hamdan
(190) paved the way for Michigan, as both
wrestlers recorded falls. Bormet's pin came
against Roy Hall, who has been ranked in the
top 16 all year.
"I felt pretty good about it," Bormet said.
"We were both a little cautious in the first
period, but I took the advantage in the second
The Wolverines had to settle for a tie
Saturday against the No. 16 Boilermakers,
who eked out a 15-15 draw in the final match
at Cliff Keen Arena.
The tie was set up when Michigan lost a
team point as a result of some activity that
took place after the match between Wolverine
126-pounder Jason Cluff and Purdue's Matt
Koontz. Cluff had won the match, which
would have tied the team scores at three.
"Purdue definitely has some outstanding
wrestlers," Wolverine coach Dale Bahr said.
"I was disappointed about losing the team
point at 126, but we just didn't wrestle as
well as we would've liked."
Aside from the Purdue match, Bahr was
pleased with his team's effort against Illinois
and Central, whom Michigan whipped 39-5
and 28-6, respectively.
"For the most part, we wrestled aggres-
sively and confidently," Bahr said. "We defi-
nitely have improved since last weekend's
meet and we're executing more the way we
Michigan's all-American Joey Gilbert
(134), ranked third in the country, once again
led the way, recording three major decisions
on the day. Cluff also went 3-0 on the day,
while all-American Lanny Green (177),
ranked ninth in the country, and Jesse Rawls,
Jr. (167) each went 2-1.

announcement. But they didn't hear
his final decision until yesterday's
"I thought he was staying an-
other year," said his mother, Hattie
Dawkins. "I tried my best to influ-
ence him to stay, but the decision
was his. Whatever he did, he had to
please himself. I'm being selfish,
I'd rather see him here when (his
brother) Jermaine was here (next
year) ... but I'm still very proud."
Howard said he still intends to
earn his Ph.D. "I plan on signing a
contract where the organization
will pay for my graduate work,"
He was asked if he would con-
sider playing in the Canadian
Football League, like Raghib
"Rocket" Ismail, who also left
with eligibility remaining.
"At this stage, it's a business....
It's about marketability and num-
bers and you try to put yourself in
a position to go to the highest bid-
der," Howard said.
The CFL's Calgary Stampede
was rumored to have offered
Howard a salary similar to the one
Ismail signed with the Toronto
Argonauts last year - a multi-
year deal worth approximately $26

And the inevitable question.
"Do you regret not turning pro
after last season?"
Simply put, Howard has very
little left to accomplish at
Michigan. Win the Heisman again?
At what cost?
This is where the other factors
become relevant. He'll sign the
most lucrative contract right now.
He saw his friend Tripp Welborne
suffer an injury that hurt both his
knee and his career. Desmond can get
his Ph.D. after his pro career, or even
in the offseason, and have his pro
team even pay for it.
It just wouldn't be worth it to
Desmond loses a year at Mich-
igan, probably a great one. But com-
pared to what he could-lose by stay-
ing, he's making a wise trade-off.
He should never have to answer
to anyone about regretting his deci-
sion to stay. By leaving, at least he
knows ahead of time what he'll be
Desmond's coach, Gary Moeller,
asserted the detriment for most
players of leaving school early. But
he said even he couldn't rightly ad-
vise Desmond against leaving.
That's because Moeller knows
Desmond is notmost players. We
should all be careful to make the
distinction between athletes like
Steve Emtman and Amp Lee, who
left school early, and student-ath-
letes like Desmond Howard, who
finished school early.
Thanks for a great year,
Desmond. Good luck.
