from staff reports
Ticket prices for Michigan foot-
ball will increase from $22 to $25
per game for the 1993 season,
Athletic Director Jack Weidenbach
announced Saturday. Student ticket
prices will increase from $10 to $11
per game.
"The increase in ticket prices is
necessary to help cover the rising
costs of upgrading the Michigan
Stadium," Weidenbach said. "With-
out this renovation, the facility will
not be able to keep up with the
demands of the next 50 years."
Some of the planned projects in-
clude additional rest rooms for
women, renovation of existing rest
rooms, food courts for better conces-
sion service, new wrought iron fenc-
ing around the stadium with bigger
gates for easier entrance and exit,
and the replacement of all seats in
Michigan Stadium.
"We are constantly trying to im-
prove our customer service,"
Weidenbach said. "It is imperative
we do everything we can for better
pedestrian flow in and out of the sta-
dium."

years ago with lowering the playing
field, building new wall around the
field, restoring seven exposed sec-
tions of concrete on the east side,
creating handicap seating and
replacing the artificial turf with new
Prescription Athlete Turf (PAT).
Last year, another 800 seats were
added and the next seven sections of
exposed concrete on the east side
were replaced.
With the renovation, new seats
are being installed to replace the old
seats which were covered by fiber-
glass are the original redwood seats
installed when the stadium was first
built in the mid-1920s.
"Within four or five years, we
will have all seats and all exposed
concrete in the entire stadium re-
placed," Weidenbach said.
"Conservatively speaking, this pro-
ject could cost another $1 million a
year for the next eight years, and we
have already spent $4 million. But if
we don't renovate now, renovation
will be even more expensive in the
future."
Michigan opens its seven-game
home schedule Sept. 4 against
Washington State and plays Notre
Dame one week later. The Notre
Dame-Michigan contest will mark
the 400th Wolverine game to be
played in Michigan Stadium.

by Doug Neye .
Usually, when Michigan and Ohio
State meet in a sporting event, the
intensity of the rivalry overshadows the
way the teams look on paper. In men's
swimming and diving, however, the
rivalry was not enough to spark a nail-
biting affair.
Saturday afternoon, second-ranked
Mich-igan (6-0 Big Ten, 7-1 overall)
routed 13th-ranked Ohio State (3-1, 9-
1), 161-82 in the Wolverines' final dual
meet of the season.
Michigan won 10 races on the
afternoon while Ohio State managed
just two victories.
The meet began with three straight
Mich-igan triumphs. The first race, the
400-yard medley relay, was captured by
Royce Sharp, Eric Wunderlich, Brian
Gunn and Gustavo Borges with a time
of 3:20.29.
Next came the 1650 freestyle which
Mich-igan's Marcel Wouda won by
over 20 seconds. The sophomore's time
of 15:13.31 was just :00.4 short from
qualifying for the NCAA champ-
ionships.
"I'm pretty happy with my per-
formance," Wouda said. "But to miss
qualifying for nationals by just :00.4 is
pretty frustrating - especially in such a
long race."
A Borges victory in the 200-yard
freestyle was followed by Ohio State's
first win of the afternoon. The
Buckeyes' Jay Hiadish won a close race
with Michigan's Rodney VanTassel.
VanTassel in turn, edged out Ohio
State's Steve Robling by :00.02 for
second.
At that point, the Wolverines led by
only 23 points, but Michigan victories
in seven of the next eight events erased
any hopes the Buckeyes ever had.
Wouda captured the 400 individual
medley, while Gunn and Sharp won the

200 butterfly and 200 backstroke,
respectively.
VanTassel's victory in the 500
freestyle was followed by Eric Wund-
erlich's impressive win in the 200
breaststroke.
Wunderlich's time of 1:59.20 missed
the NCAA qualifying time by :00.06
and was just :01.2 away from the pool
record set by Olympic gold medalist
Mike Barrowman in 1990.
"My time (in the 200 breaststroke)
was over a second faster than I've had
in any other dual meet," Wunderlich
said. "I think it's a good indication of
where I'm at right now."
Michigan captured the 800 freestyle
relay in the last race of the day.
VanTassell, Wunderlich, Gunn and
Borges finished in a time of 6:40.48.
Saturday's confrontation marked the
last home meet for this years seniors.
The members of the class of 1993 have
been an integral part of one of the most
prolific eras in the history of Michigan
men's swimming.
They helped capture three of
Michigan's seven consecutive Big Ten
Conference titles and have three Top 10
NCAA Championship finishes as well.
Now is not the time, however, to
worry about next year. With the Big Ten
Championships and NCAA Finals just
around the corner, coach Jon Urbanchek
seems optimistic about his team's
chances.
"We had some exceptionally good
times (against Ohio State) and came
close to having a couple. of NCAA
qualifiers," Urbanchek said. "This was
our final tune-up before the big meets
and I feel we are right on target."
