Last season the Iowa Hawkeyes finished 10-1, yet had to play in the
lowly Holiday Bowl. The Hawkeyes certainly could have played in a more
prestigious bowl, but an agreement stating that the Big Ten's second place
team would play in the Holiday Bowl forced them to play there.
This year, the second place team will play in the Citrus Bowl. Unlike
last year, it looks like the bowl folks are getting the short end of the stick.
Here is a rundown of this week's games among the rest of the Big Ten.
Michigan State (2-1 Big Ten, 2-4 overall) vs. Ohio State
(1=2, 4-2):
'Years ago, a matchup of these two teams might have had Rose Bowl
implications. Those days are long gone. Now the only thing these teams are
prying for is a potential Citrus Bowl bid. Ohio State looked good against
Northwestern last week, but Northwestern could make Ohio Wesleyan look
go'd. Still, the Buckeyes appear to be the class of the Little Nine.
Watching Michigan State's offense is like watching ice melt: you know
it'g'going to move a little, but it's not really going anywhere. The Spartans
struggled to beat Minnesota on Saturday night. The Gophers ran through the
Sirtans' many defensive holes. When Minnesota does that, it's time to start
schduling Central Michigan. Oops.
'Ohio State 31, Michigan State 14.
Illinois (1-2, 3-3) vs. Northwestern (1-2, 1-5):
CTan you believe that, with our country mired in a recession, people are
paying to watch this?
Illinois lost to Iowa last week, giving Northwestern fans (there are a few
of them out there) hope for victory. Let's not forget, however, that
Northwestern has already won one game, thus fulfilling their quota for the
season. Northwestern beat Illinois last year. It won't happen again.
111inois 34, Northwestern 20.
Purdue (1-2, 1-5) vs. Iowa (2-1, 2-4):
A tough schedule makes their record misleading, but Iowa is probably
th third-best team in the conference, after Michigan and Ohio State. The
problem is that the Hawkeyes could very well finish third... with a losing
record. The NCAA requires that any bowl team must have at least six wins.
TIjat would mean no Holiday Bowl bid, and humiliation for a once-dominant
conference.
The Boilermakers really showed something in their heartbreaking loss to
Wisconsin last week. They showed that, despite what the media says,
Wisconsin isn't that good. Purdue played its heart out against a decent team
last week, and came up short. Now they play a better team.
Iowa 42, Purdue 17.
Indiana (1-2, 1-5) vs. Wisconsin (2-1, 4-2):
After Michigan demolished Indiana by 28 points last week, Hoosier tail-
back Brett Law said that Indiana is as talented as the Wolverines. We are
still not sure what sport he was talking about. If you can explain how
Indiana is as talented as Michigan, you can probably also explain how a
conference called the Big Ten has eleven teams.
aWisconsin has risen from the conference cellar to at least the middle of
the pack. They're going to beat some teams they shouldn't, but also lose
some tough, close games. These are two fairly evenly matched teams. It
should go down to the wire.
Indiana 17, Wisconsin 16.
West Virginia (3-1-2) vs. Penn State (5-2):
Penn State, that other Big Ten team, came out flat against BC last week,
arid the Eagles surprised them, winning 35-32. The Nittany Lions received
their wake-up call. Joe Paterno is too good a coach to let it happen again.
Penn State 45, West Virginia 10.

Speed overcame strategy last
night at Mitchell Field as the
Michigan women's soccersteam
(13-5-5) outran Bowling Green en
route to a 5-1 victory.
Bowling Green attempted to
employ an offsides trapping scheme
with little success against the
Wolverines. Michigan consistently
lobbed over the defense to show-
case its superior footspeed, thus
outrunning the slower Falcon de-
fenders.
"Bowling Green uses a very ag-
gressive offsides trap. We just tried
to get rid of the ball quickly and let
our forwards outrun them to the
ball," said Michigan coach Peter
Manning.
Bowling Green paid for its ag-
gressiveness as the Wolverine for-
wards shot often and very accu-
rately at the Falcon netminder.
Michigan outshot its opponents 25-
5 with an outstanding 20 of the 25
attempts being on goal. Precise
shooting has been elusive for the
kickers all year, making this one of
the clubs better offensive perfor-
mances of the year.
"We finished our shots better
today," Manning said. "We have
been working on finishing all year.
The last seven or eight games we

have been much better. Mainly we
have been trying to convert these
opportunities in game situations."
Junior forward Lisa Ashton was
able to capitalize twice on scoring
opportunities. The first, a pinpoint
strike from the center of the penalty
box, gave the Wolverines a lead
they would never relinquish.
Ashton's second goal with approx-
imately eight minutes left effec-
tively put the game out of reach.
On the second goal, Ashton re-
ceived a lob halfway into the
Bowling Green zone and was
granted a gift when her shot
bounced off the left goal post di-
rectly into the net for a 4-1 Blue
lead.
Senior Shannon Loper, sopho-
more Alicia Treadway and junior
Alicia Stewart also tallied goals to
lead the kickers' scoring.
The goal by Treadway was by
far the prettiest play of the day. The
score was made possible by a
backwards pass from Loper to
wide-open midfielder Stewart. She
completed the play by arching a
shot over the outstretched Falcon
netminder.
The kickers are now focusing
their efforts toward gaining a post-
season berth in the Big Ten cham-
pionships.

Macomb offers little challenge for men in 3-1 triumpth

by Mike Rancilio
Daily Sports Writer
WARREN, Mich. - You'd
think by playing only a throw-in
away from "trucker's row" that the
Michigan men's soccer club might
be out of its element.
But nothing seemed to faze this
team as it ran all over Macomb
College last night, 3-1, improving
its record to 7-9-3.
"We played a good second-half
with high intensity," Michigan
coach Aaron Smith said. "We were
faster to the ball then they were, so
it appeared like we were a much
better team."
Appeared like? Michigan kept
the ball on the offensive end of the

field so much that Wolverine goal-
keeper, Knut Peterson, left for
Universal Mall before the
conclusion. The Monarchs were on
defense for nearly all of the second
half, so much so, that they began to
self-destruct.
The frustrated Macomb players
were attacking each other verbally,
as the Wolverines dribbled through
their defense. The Monarch goalie
actually ran out of teammates to
yell at, so he vented his frustration
on the ball girl during a stoppage in
play.
None of this affected the
Wolverines, as two first-half goals
quickly made the match a romp.
The second half became a shooting

barrage on the Macomb net with
Michigan players looking for their
first goals.
"We moved (Dave) Nordwell up
to try and get him a goal - since
he hasn't scored," Smith said.
Scott Lymburner didn't need a
position change to score goals, as
he tallied two - the first and third.
He also had a great opportunity for
the hat trick with two consectutive
head balls off the crossbar late in
the second half.
"Scott, squared up, is our best
shooter of the ball," Smith praised.
Freshman Rick Weinberg added
two assists and Guy Metzger
pushed home the second goal for
Michigan. The offensive surge

couldn't have come at a better time
for the Wolverines as they head to
the Big Ten Club Tournament, the
weekend of Oct. 31.
"The second half was a good
tune-up for the tournament," Smith
said. "We have our players game-fit
know."
If last night's game was any
indication, the Wolverines are
certainly ready for the Big Ten's
best. There is also a sense of
urgency to win the tournament, to
qualify for Nationals.
"Guys like Kelly Kuehne, Rosey
(Brian Rosewarne), Scott Seabolt
and Dave Nordwell realize this may
be their last time to win (Big Ten
tourney) and get to Nationals,"
Smith said.

this decision. We're looking closely
at what we can do and how we can
change."
"We need to look and see and
have discussions with the city and
the university offices about this.
Move-in is already a complicated
situation and this will make it more
complicated."
The athletic department made
this decision without consulting the
housing division; however, Weiden-
bach has since started discussing
potential problems and solutions
with Housing Director Bob Hughes.
"I think that regardless of
whether this was discussed with us
beforehand, what we have to do now
is make it work," Levy said.

There are other problems that
will affect students with this move.
With move-in and the game falling
on the same day, it may be difficult
for some students to attend the sea-
son opener.
While Weidenbach acknowledges
all of these potential problems, he
still feels the positives outweigh the
negatives.
"We had a request to move the
game by the networks and if it's a
problem, we ha.ve to work at it,"
Weidenbach said. "We wanted to
fulfill the wishes of our coach and
have a game before Notre Dame.
That was our first priority. We also
had four home games in a row this
year, and we wanted to spread them
out next season. That was paramount
in our thinking. This gives us a one-
week break."

The Michigan football team will get a new season opener in
1993. The 1993 Michigan-Washington State football game
originally scheduled for September 18 has been moved up to
become the September 4 season opener. Here is how the new
1993 football schedule looks:
September 4 WASHINGTON STATE
September 11 NOTRE DAME
September 18 BYE WEEK
September 25 HOUSTON
October 2 IOWA
October 9 AT MICHIGAN STATE
October 16 AT PENN STATE
October 23 ILLINOIS
October 30 AT WISCONSIN
November 6 PURDUE
November 13 AT MINNESOTA
November 20 OHIO STATE (Home games in BOLD)

A NIGHT IN THE UKRAINE

"We are concerned about the dif-
ficulty students may have in attend-
ing the game. We want to have stu-
dents in attendance."
This may not be a problem
unique to next season. Because of
the addition of Penn State to the Big
Ten, each team will need to have a
bye week in the conference season.
Instead of beginning the Big Ten
season the first week of October, the
season will soon begin the last week
of September.

This will lead to teams either
playing a game Labor Day weekend,
or after the conference season.
"This is something we will have
to think about in our future sched-
ules," Weidenbach said. "We will
have to sometimes play the week
after Thanksgiving. That will give us
a problem. We'll be playing
Thanksgiving week, the Saturday af-
ter Thanksgiving and the week after
that."
