the number of Black students
entering college and especially
given the national crisis in the
decline of the Black male that this
convention would further enact
legislation that would further
(hamper) the opportunities for
Afro-Americans," DeLauder said.
Another NCAA study showed
that the effects of Proposition 48,
enacted in 1986 establishing the
present standards, did not decrease
the number of Blacks in athletics
and their graduation rate went up
Michigan athletic director Jack
Weidenbach supported the legisla-
tion and figures it will have little
impact in the Big Ten since the con-
ference has already established stan-
dards at the level.
The number of core curriculum
courses a recruit will need also in-
creased from 11 to 13.
New regulations for the en-
rolled student-athlete also passed
yesterday. More than 75 percent of
each student-athlete's credit hours
have to come from the regular aca-
demic year. The Michigan contin-
gent supported the proposal even
though the University's spring and
summer terms comprise 33 percent
of the academic year.
"We need to also remember that
the purpose of the convention was
not only for education, but also for
cost containment. If they get it in
the fall and winter semester, than
there isn't any need to go in the
spring and summer," Michigan as-
sociate athletic director Peggy
The representatives also tight-
ened up some of last year's legisla-
tion, most notably, better defining
the football coaching staff.
Last year's amendment cut the
staff to one head coach, eight assis-
tant coaches and four restricted-
earnings coaches. That was altered
yesterday to have one head coach,
nine assistants coaches and two
graduate assistant coaches.

Does Michigan really need to
reevaluate its program?
Yes, the Wolverines need to do a
little more to win a national
championship. The national title is
certainly a realistic goal of a team
this good. But it should be
understood that only one team can
win a national championship - at
least in most years. The polls' split
decisions the last two seasons bring
up another point. The national
championship is subjective, unlike
winning the Big Ten Championship.
The Wolverines have won the
Big Ten four straight years. There is
no disputing that out of the
hundreds of college programs in the
country, Michigan has been in the
top 10 for years. Obviously, the
Wolverines are doing something
It has been suggested recently
that Michigan recruit faster players.
This theory is based on the fact that
the Wolverines' two losses this
season came to Washington and
Florida State - two of the nation's
But speed doesn't guarantee
victory. Washington proved it was
simply more talented than
Michigan. And the Seminoles' speed
ended up losing to both Miami and
"You can throw the speed out
there, but that isn't the complete an-
swer," Moeller said, "We're not a
terribly slow team. We're not the
slowest team in the world. In fact,
we were probably slower last year
than we are this year."
For proof of how fast Michigan
is, one can point to Howard or
tailback Tyrone Wheatley. And as
far as Grbac goes, yes, he played
horribly in the Rose Bowl, but so
did the offensive line, which
allowed six sacks. Overall, this has
been a great year for Grbac, who led
the nation in passing efficiency. In
order for Grbac to lose his starting
position next season, someone will
have to beat him out convincingly.
Michigan is one of the best teams
in the country and still will be next
fall. The Wolverines don't need to
start over with a whole new
gameplan, they only need to build
on what they have.
