How's it goin', eh?
We're ready to head north for the
big Michigan vs. Lake State hockey
series in Sault Ste. Marie this week-
end but were asked to write this col-
umn to try to instill some of the
CCHA's excitement into Big Ten
football.
Tough task.
There will be no upsets in the Big
Ten this week, but only because no
one can figure out who is the upset-
ter and who is the upsetee. Yes Big
Ten fans, we have achieved parity
- not parody, though the confer-
ence should definitely be the subject
of one. Each conference team, bar-
ring Michigan, is just as bad as every
other one.
Wisconsin (4-4 overall, 2-3 in
the Big Ten) at Michigan State (3-
5, 3-2)
In a rematch between two of last
year's Final Four teams...
Well, face it, this would be a
better game on the ice. The Badgers
started the season bad, then got
good, now they are bad again.
Sounds like a Jim Croce song.
Have you ever seen the George
Perles show? Could George possibly
mumble any more? The show is
making its Comedy Channel debut
on Sunday. That is the day after the
Spartans lose to the Badgers.
Minnesota (1-7, 1-4) at Ohio
State (5-2, 3.2)
Look for the Gophers to take a
two or three goal lead into the first
intermission...
Actually, even this hockey game
would be better than having to listen
to Buckeye tailback Robert Smith
tell everyone he is the best running
liback in the game. He can't talk like
that until he is a pro. Or a doctor. Or
whatever he's going to do.
Hey, wait. Robert, have you ever
laced up a pair of skates?
Why did Minnesota change the
color of their helmets? Too many
fans were confusing the Golden Go-
phers with the Minnesota State
Screaming Eagles. Gopher brass
didn't want to be mistaken for a
winning team. Buckeyes in a romp.
Iowa (3-6, 2-3) at Indiana (5-3,
3-2)
Indiana. Iowa.
Hawkeyes. Hoosiers.
Two-and-three. Three-and-two.
Only in America's heartland.
You know, maybe if they flooded
Memorial Stadium and waited for it
to freeze over, this game would pro-
duce prospects in another sport - it
would be over quicker and be less
agonizing, too. Iowa is victorious as
the Hoosiers just sit back and enjoy
it.
Purdue (3-5, 2-3) at Illinois (4-
4, 2-3)
Toss the coin. Who really knows
what's going to happen in this
game? Both teams have beaten some
good teams. Both teams lost to
Northwestern at home.

It's March 13, 1993, and Michi-
gan has opened a 25-point lead in its
home finale against Northwestern
with just under four minutes remain-
ing. The sellout crowd cheers the se-
niors - Rob Pelinka, Eric Riley,
Michael Talley and James Voskuil
- as they come out for the last time.
Then, the chant begins, first softly in
the student section, then growing un-
til it echoes throughout the arena.
Ricky! Ricky! Ricky!
Throwing off his warmups, Ri-
cardo "Ricky" Guzman, the 6-foot-2,
175-pound freshman point guard
from Bayam6n, Puerto Rico, hustles
onto the floor, replacing Jalen Rose.
Ten seconds later, Leon Derricks
rebounds a Wildcat miss and sends it
upcourt to Guzman, wide open in the
corner. He launches a trey ...
Get ready, Michigan fans. In the
tradition of Steve Stoyko, J.P. Oost-
erbaan and Mark Koenig, we present
to you Ricky Guzman.
During last Friday's Media Day
at Crisler Arena, most of the mem-
bers of the press corps hounded
coach Steve Fisher, even though he
insisted he knew nothing of when
the NCAA ruling would return Chris
Webber, Rose, and a newly-bulked
up Riley (no kidding, he added 20
pounds this summer) to the Wolver-
ines.
However, after his obligatory
photo opportunity, Guzman mostly
sat alone, sometimes with fellow
rookie Dugan Fife, and well clear of

the crowd. His No. 44 uniform had
no name on its back.
Such is the life of a walk-on.
So how did Ricky Guzman get to
be with the team?
"Ricky showed up in my office
over the summer," Michigan assis-
tant coach Brian Dutcher said. "Said
he was thinking of enrolling in
Michigan. We talked, he had the
grades, and I gave him the oppor-

true? Apparently, the story is true, as
Guzman confirms it.
"I stopped in to see Dutcher,"
Guzman said. "He told me I could
practice with the team. I practiced
with them, and here I am."
Here he is.
And now for who he is. Guzman
is no slouch on the court. He said he
excelled from three-point land and
averaged 24 points per game in his
senior season in Puerto Rico, leading
the city of Guaynabo's Colegio
Marista high school to the champi-
onship game in the Puerto Rico High
School Athletic Alliance.
Though it is two weeks before
the exhibition opener, Dutcher said
Guzman has already begun to make
his presence felt in the Michigan
program.
"In practice, he's a positive who
works hard and makes the other kids
better," Dutcher said.
Guzman also (now you really
think we're making this up) dis-
played a modest attitude. He doesn't
expect, or demand much playing
time, and expressed appreciation
merely for his chance to share the
court with the likes of Webber and
Rose.
"It's nice to come here," he said.
"These guys are great. Fab Five, you
know."
We know, Ricky.
Oh, and the trey?
Swish, of course.

Guzman
tunity, though I told him there were
no guarantees. We let him run with
the team, (and wanted to) see if the
kids liked him. He made it through
running, and through the condition-
ing, and the kids like him."
Sound clich6d? Too good to be
