" Big Ten opens with
Soccer clubs fit to be tied, 1-1

Well folks, here we go. It is time for the Big Ten season. We all know
who is going to the Rose Bowl, but there may be some surprises along the
Minnesota (0-3) at Illinois (2-1)
Illinois quarterback Jason Verduzco is one of the best in the Big Ten. He
is strong, durable, and has a knack for the big play.
Minnesota's quarterback, Marquel Fleetwood, leads the nation in total
offense. The difference: Illinois has seven or eight guys who can at least
spell "defense." Minnesota's players need a dictionary.
Illinois 31, Minnesota 14
Northwestern (0-3) at Purdue (1-2)
Purdue defeated California at the beginning of the season, then pro-
ceeded to lose two straight. Northwestern lost to Boston College, Notre
Dame and Stanford. Hmmm.
In a battle of Big Ten nobodies, Purdue will at least show up with some
semblance of an offense and defense. Northwestern won't show up with
much of either.
Purdue 27, Northwestern 10
Ohio State (3-0) at Wisconsin (2-1)
Ohio State has the best defense in the Big Ten. With the emergence of
quarterback Kirk Herbstreit, Ohio State has all of the tools to make a serious
run for the Roses. (Michigan at Ohio State will decide the conference
champion.) Speaking of tools, Wisconsin left its tools out overnight and
somebody came by and took them!
Ohio State 35, Wisconsin 14
_ Indiana (2-1) at Michigan State (0-3)
Indiana actually has some talent this year. However, they lost their best
defensive lineman for the year to injury. That will definitely hurt Indiana.
However, I believe Michigan State has a terminal case of body odor. (I
am not sure how else to say "Michigan State stinks") Michigan State has yet
to take care of that foul odor emanating from East Lansing, therefore,
another Spartan loss (BOO-HOO) is imminent. George Perles really should
bathe his team in Lysol.
Indiana 23, Michigan State 14
The Michigan men's soccer team tried to mix
things up a bit against Schoolcraft last night at
Mitchell Field. The lineup changes triggered a
strong but disappointing 1-1 tie with the Ocelots.
Michigan coach Aaron Smith was forced into
using freshmen and other new players due to in-
juries to Brian Rosewarne and senior co-captain
"I've used eight to 10 new players," Smith said.
"We're still a young team, and we're going to get
Both Kuehne and Rosewarne are expected back
in the lineup this weekend, but in their absence
many players have stepped up their games to com-
bat the lack of experience.
Junior Reza Sadjapour continued his strong play
by setting up several scoring opportunities for his
teammates, including Michigan's only goal which
came late in the first half.
The play developed rather precariously. As
Schoolcraft was setting up for a corner kick, Smith
motioned to Sadjapour to back onto the offensive
side of midfield. The kick caromed off a Wolverine
head and bounced all the way out to the forward for
a clean break. He slowed the ball up on the right
side of the field, and crossed to a streaking Jim
Lacey for an easy tap.
Schoolcraft came back in the second half and
tallied the tying goal off a batted ball. Michigan
goaltender Alex Brown had little chance on the de-
Brown has been another player who has picked
up the slack caused by the injuries. He has been
playing better each time out.
"He's come in and done a great job," Smith
said. "He's good because he talks out there; he
scares off the forwards (of the opposition)."

Women squander chances with Schoolcraft
by Jesse Brouhard
Everything else is irrelevant unless the ball
is put in the net. The women's soccer team
learned that lesson the hard way last night and
consequently had to settle for a 1-1 tie with
In the first half, Michigan dominated all as-
pects of the contest. The Wolverines were es-
pecially effective at getting to loose balls, en-
abling them to keep play on the offensive side
of the field. This strong effort materialized in
the kickers 12-2 shots-on-goal advantage, but
the offense still only managed one score.
Michigan's only goal was the result of a
Schoolcraft penalty. Senior Jenny Steinhebel
quickly put the ball down and booted a strike
to junior Lisa Ashton streaking up the middle
of the penalty box. At that point it was a
footrace between Ashton and the goalie which
Ashton won, putting the Wolverines up, 1-0.
The lead, however, did not last long.
Schoolcraft countered just five minutes
later with a corner kick goal of their own. On
the play, the Ocelots were able to loft the ball
into the crowded Michigan goal box. The ensu-
ing scramble resulted in Schoolcraft's only
score. The goal disheartened the blue kickers
since it was only Schoolcraft's second shot of
Michigan coach Peter Manning explained
the 1-1 score in the midst of a Wolverine 38-5
shooting advantage as a "lack of intensity and
desire. We obviously should have won the
game in the first 15-20 minutes seeing how we
dominated in the first half."
Many of the 38 Wolverine shots caine late
in the game as the kickers tried to hit deep
bombs from outside the penalty box. These
low percentage shots decreased the number of
easy opportunities for the team's forwards.
"Toward the end of the game I think we
sort of panicked and started taking those long
shots," Manning said. "I do encourage the
team to shoot within 20-25 yards since we do
have some good shooters."
One factor that led to the longer shots from
outside the penalty box was the Ocelot's
"circle the wagons" mentality. At many times
throughout the game Schoolcraft would be
playing a strictly defensive game.
"They did have six or seven players back
on defense with just three players on offense,"
Manning said. "They tried to hit the long ball
and score then. It wasn't the most offensive
team I've ever seen."
The Wolverines do not have time to reflect
on this disappointing tie, however. The squad
is back in action tomorrow at Bowling Green.
The kickers will have to get their intensity
back up for the game ahead.
"This season I told the team to take respon-
sibility for talking to each other and keeping
themselves motivated on the game. They just
haven't been doing it," Manning said. "I take
responsibility for this, I might just have to start
screaming to get the team fired up."
The Michigan women's volleyball team swept Michigan State in three
games, 15-6, 15-9, 15-13, last night in East Lansing to up its record to 11-3.
Spikers flog Spartans in three

After soundly thumping Mich-
igan State's Spartans in the first two
games last night, the Wolverine
women's volleyball team recovered
from a huge third-game deficit to
capture its third consecutive confer-
ence match in as many outings.
The Wolverines, who stung the
Spartans in the first two games, 15-
6, 15-9, found themselves manhan-
dled in the third game. Michigan
State held a 12-2 advantage before a
series of Hayley Lorenzen kills
sparked an emotional ten-point
Michigan run which tied the game at
12. After Michigan State grabbed a
one-point lead, the Wolverines stole
the match from the Spartans, scoring
the closing three points.
"I felt we did a good job coming
in here and being prepared for an
emotional match," Michigan's first-
year head coach Greg Giovanazzi
said. "We focused on just playing on
our side of the net.
"I think we mixed our hitting and
tipping very well tonight. Serving
tonight was the best of in any of our
matches this year."
The Wolverines, now 11-3
overall and 3-0 in Big Ten play,
finished the match with 16 aces,
with newcomer Suzy O'Donnell
leading the team with four. Senior
Michelle Horrigan led all players in
kills and digs with 12 and 15, re-

The men's golf team opens play Friday with a solid
starting five and a confident coach. Senior Anthony
Dietz and company have raised coach Jim Carras' expec-
This weekend's Northern Intercollegiate Tournament
in Bloomington, starting tomorrow and ending Sunday,
will give the Wolverines a chance to showcase their
talent to 23 other schools.
"I think we've got a fairly solid group of guys,"
Carras said. "But we are missing that one man that will
go out and consistently shoot par or better."
That void exists due to the graduation of captain
Dean Kobane. Carras feels that Dietz could be the man
to step up for the Wolverines.
In this year's fall qualifier, Dietz led the way with a
five-round average of 72. Dietz and fellow senior James
Carson (75.4 average) will act as co-captains for the
David Hall (74.2) is the only other senior to crack
the starting five. In fact, due to the abundance of youth-
ful talent, no other senior made even the top ten. This
could very well mean that Michigan will be a force in
s open season
Big Ten golf for the next couple of years. The top ten
includes four freshmen and sophomore Bill Lyle (73.8).
Lyle, who played at Ann Arbor's Pioneer High
School, averaged 77.9 in 19.5 matches as a freshman.
The team will look for a similar season from freshman
Mike Lyons. Lyons (74.6) came within four strokes of
Lyle and the No. 2 spot.
The present and future of the team looks very bright.
Carras, in his 11th year at the helm, is brimming with
excitement. He is hopeful that his top five will be suc-
cessful without that one consistent golfer who can lead
"If these guys are as solid as I think they are, we
won't need (Kobane)," he said.
Carras believes that Dietz is a tremendous talent and
has a good chance of being all-Big Ten and a participant
in the 1993 NCAA Championships.
"This year's team is quite a bit different from last
year's. I think that we actually may be more success-
ful," Dietz said, "Even though it may not say so on pa-
per. This year's team has a positive frame of mind,
while last year there was underachieving."
