Only one game after deciding that it won't be intimidated
by varsity programs, the Michigan men's soccer team has
earned some respect of its own.
After a strong showing Sunday in a 3-0 loss to Division 115
No. 10 Wisconsin-Parkside, who has finished in the top
twenty for nine consecutive years, the Wolverines defeated
Macomb Community College last Wednesday, 4-2.
"After the Parkside game, other schools should realize
that we are a strong team," freshman midfielder Eric
Frickel said. "We don't go down easy and we will
always come out and play."
Michigan (3-3-2) will get a chance to prove it deserves its
new found respect today at Mitchell Field at 5 p.m. against
Schoolcraft, a junior college that always fields a formidable
team. After an up and down start to the 1994 season, today's
match against Schoolcraft is a critical game for the Wolver-
"Schoolcraft will prove to be a pivotal game in our season,"
Michigan head coach Steve Burns said. "They beat us last
year, 2-0, and they always have a great team despite changing
the faces every two years."
However, revenge may not play a huge factor in Michigan's
strategy. Five Wolverines, all of whom will start tonight,
played on that Schoolcraft squad which earned a decisive
victory over Michigan a year ago.
Andy Cosenza, Ryan and Adam Carriere, Matt Presley and
Bill Lanspeary all remembered that the victory over Michi-
gan boosted the team's confidence and eventually led it to
qualify for the national tournament, where it made it to the
Schoolcraft also has the advantage of dipping into the large
talent pool in the Detroit area. Many prospective players from
the area choose the junior college over four-year universities.
One of the highlights of Schoolcraft's season is the Michigan
game and the team is ready to take on the Wolverines.
There is little doubt that Michigan will be prepared to face
Schoolcraft this year. The Wolverines are certainly up for the
"We've got some momentum going now," Burns said. "We
are definitely up for the challenge."

PONTIAC (AP)-Detroit Lion run-
ning back Barry Sanders says he is the
father of a 5-month-old son, BJ, who
lives with his mother in Dallas.
Sanders told the Detroit Free Press in*
Saturday's editions that the baby was
born April 10. He attended Detroit's
football game against Dallas Sept. 20
with Sanders' parents.
"I feel great about it, it's pretty nice,"
Sanders said of having a son, whose
full name is Barry James.
Sanders, a onetime spokesman
against premarital sex, said he doesn't
know whetherhe'll marry BJ'smother,
whomhe refused to identify. He said he
has known the woman for about seven
years, since dating her at Oklahoma
Sanders said he sees the baby at least
once a week on days off.
In 1991, Sanders told reporters he
opposed premarital sex and was celi-
But in a recent interview with the
Free Press, Sanders said he no longer
speaks on that question.
"My position on that has evolved,"
he said. "I've just changed." How-
ever, he said he still believed virginity
should not be a reason to deride some-
"Ultimately, it's something that's
up to the individual," he said in an
interview done during the summer.
