Controversy
continues
over Blue s
final plays
sympathize with Lloyd Carr. I
really do. Consider this: the
Michigan football coach takes his
team to Colorado and stuns the No. 5
team in the nation for one of the
school's biggest victories this decade.
In the process, the Wolverines
avenge the 1994 loss to the
Buffaloes, jump into The Associated
Press top 10, and establish them-
selves as a
national champi-
onship con-
tender.
And after-
ward, the only
thing anybpdy
wants to talk
about is how BARRY

criticism must
I seem unfair.
One wouldn't have been surprised
if the coach if, when asked about
Michigan's final offensive series for
the zillionth time, he didn't just
shout back:
"Gosh darnit! We won the stupid
game! What more do you want!"
With this in mind- and also the
fact that Carr does yell at the media
from time to time - you can under-
stand why I was a little hesitant to
ask the coach about the end of the
Colorado game on yesterday's Big
Ten teleconference.
When Carr got on the line, howev-
er, I could tell that he was in a good
mood.
Maybe he was still excited about
the huge win. Maybe he was trying
hard not to repeat last week's tele-
conference performance when he
blasted a reporter for asking about
the Hail Mary loss in 1994. Maybe
he was just having a good day.
Whatever the reason for his mood,
I felt confident enough to ask him
about Michigan's last offensive
series. And Carr was happy to talk
about it.
Carr enthusiastically described
what happened on Michigan's final
series, leading up to fourth down.
And that was great ... except for one
problem.
I didn't ask him about that.
Instead, I asked him if quarterback
Scott Dreisbach, or the Michigan
coaching staff, or both, forgot a sim-
ple football rule. The one that states
that on a change of possession, the
clock stops immediately.
Because in my opinion, Dreisbach
was planning to down the ball on
fourth down, thinking that the clock
would run out anyway. And Carr was
going to let him do that, having for-
gotten that this would give Colorado
one last chance to score.
"Our problem began earlier on
1 third down," he said. "It actually
begins in the press box and it begins
1 early in training camp. You try to
determine how many seconds it takes
to run a certain play. (Against
Colorado) on fourth down, we

snapped the ball early, but our real
problems started on third down."
Maybe I should have repeated my
question, since Carr's answer didn't

Perles dod
in NCAA's
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - George
Perles says he loves Michigan State
but doesn't like the self-imposed
penalties the university placed on its
football program for alleged wrong-
doing while he was the Spartans'
coach.
The NCAA on Monday announced
sanctions including four years of
probation retroactive to Dec. 1,
1995, and a reduction in the number
of initial scholarships Michigan
State can make to football players
during the 1997-98 academic year.
The NCAA did not ban Michigan
State from bowl games or television
appearances.
"We are relieved," Perles, who
coached the Spartans from 1983 to
1994, told the Lansing State Journal.
"The ruling is no surprise to me. I
knew from running a football program
for 12 years under the microscope of
NCAA rules what should happen.
"They spent a million dollars and
two years investigating me, trying to
find some guilt. I feel it's over now."
The NCAA found that the school
violated rules on recruiting, bene-
fits, academic eligibility, ethical
conduct and institutional control.
Perles, who resigned after the 1994
season, was not personally charged
with any violations.
The NCAA imposed its own sanc-
tions, but it also adopted many of the
penalties Michigan State imposed

upon itself while the NCAA investi
gation was pending. Among the self
imposed penalties, the university
forfeited all five Spartans' victories
from the 1994 season.
Perles said he was disappointe
with his alma mater's handling of the
investigation.
"It's not necessarily a witch hunt
by the NCAA," Perles said. "MSU
went for a witch hunt. They should
have left it alone. .. I think it's terri
ble to give away those five victo
ries."
Perles said he believed his exone.
ation by the NCAA should preserv-
his contract with Michigan State tha
pays him $140,000 to $200,000 until
it expires in December 1997.
But Michigan State University
president Peter McPherson said
Monday that no decision had been
made about Perles' contract. "The
matter of the contract - we have to
work through that yet," McPherson
told the State Journal.
Perles said he felt he was the target,
of the Michigan State probe.
"It's hard to swallow because not
only did I go to school there, my
wife and kids went to school there, I
played there, I've been the assistant
coach, head coach and athletic direc-
tor," he said. "I love the place.
"I say this: Not anybody can dp

about MSU. I love MSU."

Michigan women's soccer hands Toledo 5-0
Freshmen Berendowsky, Hoff hit the net two times apiece as Wolverines "snatch thir

By Kevin Goldfein
For the Daily
The Michigan women's soccer
team opened their home schedule
with a bang yesterday afternoon
with a decisive 5-0 victory over
Toledo in front of a vocal crowd at
Michigan Soccer Field.
The Rockets never had a chance as
the Wolverines (3-1) took control of
the game right away.
"We came out very motivated and
dominated from the start," Michigan
coach Debbie Belkin said. "The
goals kept the momentum going
throughout the game."
The Wolverines looked very
strong from the outset. They came
out with a lot of intensity and start-
ed making big plays early on in the
match.
Toledo, however, looked very
sluggish and out of sync due to
Michigan's strong play.
The first goal came at the 19:12
mark of the first half when freshman
Amber Berendowsky chipped in her
first of two goals, scoring from the
top of the penalty box off a pass
from Karen Montgomery.
Berendowsky's second goal came
unassisted from just outside the
goalie box 11 minutes later.
Berendowsky wasn't the only
player to put the ball in the net more
than once. Mari Hoff, also a fresh-
man, scored the Wolverines' third
and fourth goals.
The first was a close-range shot
that came off a centering pass from
co-captain Debbie Flaherty. Hoff's
second goal was a high shot from the
top of the penalty box that deflected
off the hands of Toledo goalie
Christina Drake.

The Wolverines pressured the
Rockets the entire game. The ball
was in Toledo's end almost the entire
90 minutes keeping the Rockets. on
the defensive.
This offensive attack proved to be
the Wolverines' best defense. Toledo

could only muster three shots on
goal the entire game.
Michigan's final goal came with
32:43 left in the match when
Flaherty punched the ball in off a
pass from Stephanie McArdle.
With the game out of reach early

in the second half, Belkin was able
to clear the bench, bringing in all
eight substitutes.
"It was nice to get everybody into
the game," Belkin said. "Especially
coming off of three road games
where not everybody could travel."
The Wolverines continue their
homestand this weekend against
California and Kentucky. Both of
these teams are quicker and more
experienced than Toledo. Michigan
will have to continue its strong play
in order to keep its three-game win

streak alive.
"We won't need to work on any-
thing in particular for this weekend,"
Belkin says. "We'll just have to stray
focused and play to our capabili-
ties."
Vanessa Lewis, a sophomore
defender, has been cleared to play
and might see action this weekend.
She is returning from an injuic
cheekbone.
Forward Jessica Limauro, howev-
er, is still out indefinitely with a bro-
ken nose.
