The Michigan men's and women's crew teams rowed into shape in the Tampa, Fla., sun during their spring break
training trip. The teams hope the preparation will pay off this season.

The Michigan crew team has one
of the bigger squads in the Midwest,
with about 100 members. This year
it aims to make bigger mean better.
The team is comprised of four
squads, including men's and wom-
en's varsity and novice. The two
biggest teams are the men's varsity,
and women's novice.
The Wolverines just got back in
Michigan water for the first time
since the fall. Over spring break they
worked on their tans, and rowed four
to five hours a day in the heat of
"When we weren't rowing, we
slept," varsity heavyweight member
Tedd Tennis said.
Several team members agreed
that they are in good physical shape
after winter conditioning. "It's the
most intense time of the year, be-
causewe focus entirely on getting in
shape," varsity captain Jennifer
The rowers are optimistic about
this season. "We're an up and com-
ing team," Tennis said. "We're try-
ing to establish a winning program,
and to be competitive out East."
The competition out East is
strong with Princeton, while
Wisconsin provides some of the
more formidable opposition in the
Midwest. At the moment, they are
respectable but are not considered
one of the best teams in the nation.
Crew members feel they are
ready to take it to the next level. But
in Tennis' opinion, the Wolverines
will have to actively recruit in order
to compete with the likes of
Wisconsin. This year, Michigan
LAS VEGAS - Jerry Tarkan-
ian's first day as ex-UNLV coach
followed a short night's rest and
started a period of indecision.
"I have a lot of things to do, but
they're fun things, nothing big,"
Tarkanian said over breakfast
Wednesday, less than 12 hours after
ceremonies honored college basket-
ball's all-time winningest coach by
Tarkanian said he would go to his
office, make some calls and the go
about his life with some questions to
"I can't talk about what I want to
do," he said referring to continuing
his battles with the school and its
president Robert Maxson. "I won't
be without basketball regardless. I
have a lot of things to do that relate
to basketball. I'm not really sure."
Tarkanian had said recently he
would like to coach at another
school and indicated Wednesday
there were some offers on the table,
but he wouldn't elaborate.
"It would take a very unusual sit-
uation, I know that," he said. "I'd
probably be better off in the NBA. I
think I could do something in the
NBA, whether it be coaching, scout-
ing, the front office. I have a lot of
good friends in the NBA and some
are owners. I have possibilities there
if that's what I want to do."
The current UNLV players are
expected to file a lawsuit on Friday
trying to gain eligibility for the
NCAA tournament. They were
banned this year s a settlement of a
12-year struggle between Tarkanian
and the NCAA over due process
which reached the Supreme Court,
which ruled in the NCAA's favor.
"If the players win, and their at-
torneys say they have a good chance,
I wouldn't coach the team in the
tournament," Tarkanian said. "The
greatest injustice in the world was
those kids being kept out of the tour-
nament and off live TV this year.
They didn't have anything to do with
anything. The NCAA wanted me.

Vail's, a national tournament May 6-
Michigan's first match is with
Purdue March 28. "We match up
with them pretty well," Daryl
Laninga, the varsity men's captain,
said. Last year Michigan defeated
Purdue in a tight contest.
It is difficult to gauge who are the
most outstanding individuals on the
men's and women's teams because
crew is the essence of team sport. It
is almost impossible for individuals
to stand out in the boat, because all
eight people must perform in unison.
The heavyweight boats usually
perform better than the lightweights,
because of their superior physical
size. The men's varsity heavy-
weights average six feet one inch
and 185 pounds. All four Michigan
squads are average in physical size.
One might think that it is a con-
tradiction that bigger people would
perform better at rowing. It makes
sense that larger mass would slow
down the boat. However, this is not
"It's a question of physics. The
bigger and faster you are, the faster
you can make the boat go," Laninga
Michigan does not have a huge
team. Nationally-ranked teams like
Wisconsin are significantly larger
than the Wolverines, and if they
continue to have huge physical size
at their disposal, they will likely en-
joy their superiority. Despite the
seeming adversity Michigan faces
toward the stronger teams, it hopes
to utilize its tremendous depth to
make up for its lack of size.

Earn EIGHT HOURS of University credit for studying Introductory Geology in the Rocky Mountains, including:
" Yellowstone National Park " Grand Tetons " Dinosaur National Monument
" Craters of the Moon "
This ideal "outdoor classroom" offers some of the most scenic and interesting geology in the entire Rocky Mountain region. Mountain uplifts and deep
erosion have exposed a variety of Earth structures and rocks of diverse age and origin. The effects of alpine glaciation, landslides, stream erosion, and
a host of other geological phenomena provide an unmatched introduction to geology. The geological history of the Teton, Gros Ventre, and Wind River
mountain ranges is fully recorded in a sequence of fossiliferous rocks which in many cases can be interpreted in terms of processes still at work today.
The University of Michigan field course is taught at Camp Davis, a permanent facility built by the University in 1929. Camp Davis is about 20 miles south
of Jackson, Wyoming, near the junction of the Overthrust Belt, the Snake River Plain, the Wind River Range, and the Green River Basin; the Tetons lie
to the north, the Bros Ventre Range to the east, and the Basin and Range Province to the west. It is simply an excellent place to learn about geology. The
camp is located on the Hoback River near its junction with the Snake River; the trout fishing is great.
The field camp was constructed by The University of Michigan in order to provide a teaching facility in the Rocky Mountains. Camp Davis living quarters
consist of rustic cabins with wood-burning stoves and running water. Showers and laundry facilities are shared by students; meals are served mess-hall
style in a large dining room. Camp facilities include classrooms, a first-aid station, a large recreation hall, a softball diamond, and a volleyball court. Other
facilities are available in Jackson; transportation to town is provided regularly.
Geological Sciences 116 is an in-depth course covering all aspects of geology. The thrust of this course is to teach students about minerals and rocks in
a variety of settings. Approximately two weeks of the course are spent on trips to other parts of Wyoming as well as Nevada, Montana, Idaho, and Utah.
You will examine minerals, rocks, and fossils in their natural settings. Although lectures are a part of the course, most of your time will be spent in the
field where instruction is often on an individual basis.
The camp Davis teaching staff consists of faculty from the Department of Geological Sciences at The University of Michigan and visiting faculty from
other universities. The course is typically staffed by three faculty members and two graduate teaching assistants.
Geological Sciences 116 carries EIGHT (8) credit hours and is equivalent to a two-term sequence of introductory geology. It largely satisfies the natural
science distribution requirement in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts.
No prerequisites. High School seniors and university students are encouraged to apply. Entering freshpersons could arrive on campus in the fall term
with 8 hours of science credit out of the way by studying rocks and minerals in the mountains of the West.
Geological Sciences 116 runs for 6 weeks. The dates for the 1992 summer course will be from July 3, when the caravan leaves Ann Arbor, until August
18, the day that the caravan returns to Ann Arbor.
