'M' hoists Jug
for the eighth
By BRETT FORREST
Daily Football Writer
In a season of relative mediocrity,
Michigan completed its home sched-
*Ie in what could only be considered
The Wolverines outlasted Minne-
sota, 38-22, Saturday in an effort that
was lethargic in the making, and took
home the Little Brown Jug for the
eighth straight season.
Michigan was down, 15-7, with
just afew minutes remaining in the first
half before it awoke and overpowered
e undermanned Gophers with a 28-
int second half.
After two quarters, the Wolver-
ines had managed only one positive
rushing yard on 18 carries. That's
an average of .056 yards per attempt
- certainly not what they were ex-
pecting against the Golden Gophers,
a team that had won just one confer-
"I think we came into the game
cused in a lot of ways," Michigan
coach Gary Moeller said. "But we
lost our breath."
The Gophers allowed Michigan to
regain its composure in the second
half. The Wolverines, led by the arm
of quarterback Todd Collins, scored
on their first five possessions follow-
ing the break.
After Remy Hamilton's 28-yard
field goal narrowed Minnesota's lead
to 15-13, Michigan went on top for
good. On the first Gopher possession
of the third quarter, tailback Chris
Darkins fumbled on his own 30 and
the ball was recovered by Michigan
cornerback Deon Johnson. Five plays
later Collins hit a streaking Amani
Toomer over the middle in the back of
the end zone for six.
The score was one of three touch-
down passes for Collins, who set the
Michigan single-game passing record
with 352 yards in the air.
"We knew we could make some
plays," Collins said. "It just came
down to execution."
The quarterback got a little help in
making a big play the next time he got
his hands on the ball.
With less than five minutes remain-
ing in the third quarter, Collins dumped
off the ball to Tyrone Wheatley on a
short screen pass over the middle. The
tailback broke outside, charged down
the left sideline and scampered over the
goaline for a 57-yard romp.
The touchdown - Wheatley's
second of the game -set a new Michi-
gan career scoring record: 318 points.

Wins over MSU, BGSU land 'M'

BOWLING GREEN - When the
Michigan hockey team headed into
this weekend, it was staring down the
barrel of two teams that had only one
conference loss between them.
That gun turned out to be nothing
more than a water pistol.
After a pair of 7-3 victories, the
Wolverines (5-1 CCHA, 7-2 overall)
extended what is now afive-game win-
ning streak while firmly placing them-
selves among the CCHA's top teams.
Saturday night against Bowling
Green (5-2, 7-3) it looked as if the
Wolverines might get blown off the ice
before they even got warmed up.
Just 32 seconds into the game, the
Falcons took an early advantage when
Curtis Fry fired a long slapshot past
Michigan goalie Marty Turco.
The Wolverines remained on the
short end of the scoreboard until fresh-
man Robb Gordon scored a power play
goal, knocking in a puck that was bounc-
ing around the crease.
Right after the goal, while Gordon
was skating away from the net, he was
leveled by Bowling Green's Brett
Punchard in a play that was reminis-
cent of Dale Hunter's hit on Pierre
Turgeon in the 1993 NHL playoffs.
"I scored the goal and he just came
at me," Gordon said. "It was a stupid
play on his part."
Junior Kevin Hilton closed out the
first period scoring on a play that made
the rest of the night's goals pale in
With the Wolverines killing a pen-
alty, Hilton stole the puck at the Bowl-
ing Green blue line and fought off two
Falcon defenders while trying to getoff
a shot. Sliding toward the goal on his
knees, he was able to get his stick on the
puck and slide a shot past Petrie to put
the Wolverines up by two goals.
No. 1 ranking
As it turned out, the Wolverines
needed that cushion for the second
stanza, which was primarily spent in
the Wolverines' end of the ice. The
Falcons outshot Michigan, 16,3, and
narrowed the gap to one goal.
"The second period was a disaster,"
Michigan coach Red Berenson said. "It
was our worst period of the year. Marty
Turco kept us in the game."
After that dreadful second period,
the Wolverines came back in the third
period and closed out the game in con-
Gordon retaliated for the shot he
took in the first period by scoring 3:39
into the period to put the Wolverines up
by two goals. Bowling Green would
never get that close again.
"(The goal) felt good,"Gordon said.
"(Bill) Muckalt and (Jason) Botterill
were working down low, and they

Surprises are the key to the Michi-
*an women's swimming and diving
team's season this year. Last weekend,
the Wolverines upset No. 2 Texas and
No. 6 UCLA in the Lady Mustang
Classic in Dallas. They didn't expect to
lose Friday's home match against con-
ference foe Northwestern, but they cer-
tainly never expected to dominate.
Before Friday's meet, Michigan
coach JimRichardson said, "This could
a very close meet."
The No. 4 Wolverines (2-0 Big
Ten, 4-0 overall) then proceeded to
thrash the No. 10 Wildcats (1-1, 2-1),
"This teamjustdoesn't like to lose,"
Sophomore Anne Kampfe and freshmen
Kerni Hale and Karin Bunting finished 1-
2-3 in the 200 butterfly.
"The fact that we swept two events
which were normally on our weaker
side shows that this team has the ability
to be great," Michigan co-captain
Alecia Humphrey said.
Humphrey recorded four victories
in the 100 and 200 backstroke, 100
butterfly and the 200 medley relay. Her
times in the 100 and 200 backstroke
(55.62 and 1:58.25 respectively) just
missed qualifying her for the NCAAs
"My times were about the same as
in the SMU meet," Humphrey said.
"Friday's races just confirmed for me
that SMUwasn'tjust a fluke meet. I've
never swam this fast in season before."

which dropped his record to 12-8 and
put an exclamation on his season, caused
Rawls to snap.
"I've got a temper," he says. After
the Lehigh match, he ran off the mat
into the locker room and in a fit of rage
kneed the door.
When the Wolverines returned to
Ann Arbor, Rawls's knee was cut right
on the joint. Rather than stitch it up and
risk it tearing again, Rawls cleaned it
and wrestled in a match two days later.
That proved to be a mistake.
The knee became infected and Rawls
had to sit out nearly a month before he
was able to practice again.
After two days of practice, his knee
had swollen up so badly that he was sent
back to the doctor. The doctors told him
he had bursitis. His leg was put in a cast.
