Women kickers hope
to halt losing ways

Collins could get
OSU starting nod

by Mike Hill
Daily Sports Writer
After a record setting season last,
year, it's difficult for the women's
club soccer team to swallow the less
than 'spectacular start to its new
The Wolverines (2-4-3), who
won 28 games a year ago, have al-
ready dropped as many games as
they did all last season. The loss of
starters Lori Green, Heather
Marshall, Leslie Martin, and
Maureen Scullen to graduation
seems to have dampened the Mich-
igan attack more than was expected.
"It's really been a different story
so far from last year," sophomore
Kim Chenet said. "We lost those
four starters, but we also had our
toughest games at the beginning of
our schedule. We just need to get
used to playing with each other a lit-
tle better and we'll be okay."
After knocking off Purdue 2-0
last weekend, the Wolverines hope
to build on their one game winning
streak today at 5 p.m. when they
face Eastern Michigan's club team at
Mitchell Field. The Eagles are an
unfamiliar foe since their program is
relatively new.

"We really don't know what to
expect from them," captain Shannon
Loper said. "But we did beat them
pretty easily indoors last winter. But
playing on turf is obviously a lot
different than playing outside."
Head coach Peter Manning, who
took over last season during the win-
ter term, is in his first full season at
the helm for the Wolverines after
two seasons as an assistant. Manning
faces the difficult task of living up to
last year's success.
"He's really good because he
knows how all of us play," Loper
said. "It's much easier to work with
him because he knows our styles,
strengths and weaknesses."
Michigan features senior Crissy
Rice in goal and leading scorer Lisa
Ashton, Alycha Stewart and Loper at
the forward spots. The Wolverines
hope to get the offense in gear after
relatively low scoring affairs in their
opening games.
"We need to be more aggressive
on the offensive end," Loper said.
"But I think that will come with ex-
perience. But, we do need to learn
how to play together better. We're
not allowed to lose anymore."

Todd Collins may be a very
happy, if not very nervous, man this
Saturday. Michigan's backup quar-
terback could participate in his very
first collegiate start when the
Wolverines face Oklahoma State.
Regular starting quarterback
Elvis Grbac sprained his left ankle in
last weekend's game against Notre
Dame and is, at this point, extremely
questionable for this Saturday's
"I don't like to play guys who
haven't practiced," Wolverine coach
Gary Moeller said about Grbac. "I
don't know if it's in his best interest,
but it's no better off than (before) as
far as looking at him as a possibility
of playing. There's an outside
chance, but it's not a strong one at
this point."
Collins, a redshirt sophomore,
played in six out of the Wolverines'
12 games last year in relief of Grbac,
including a five for five passing per-

formance in his Michigan debut
against Florida State.
"I think Todd's been around here
long enough that he should go in and
play pretty decent because he knows
our system," Moeller said. "It's not
like starting with a freshman or a
sophomore or anything. I feel confi-
dent in what he might do and I think
it's sometimes better that he knows
the whole week in advance that he's
probably going to be the player, so
he can get ready for it rather than
being thrown into the fray of the
thing. I got some confidence in
Collins, at 6 feet 5, 240 pounds,
gives up some height and experience
compared to Grbac (6-6, 231), but
their similar styles should allow
Collins to fit into Michigan's stfan
dard play formations.
"The thing Elvis could have
given us is just the number of games
(he) has in experience," Moeller
added. "But (Collins) will be a very
similar type quarterback."
