'M' spikers to face
Spartans at enison

By Kevin Kasiborski
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan women's volleyball
team's orders this weekend, should they
choose to accept them, sound like
Mission: Impossible.
The challenge facing the Wolverines
is a trip to East Lansing, and a match
against No. 9Michigan State, in front
3,000 hostile fans in Jenison Field
, A large crowd is expected, because
the Spartans receive their Big Ten cham-
pionship rings from last season.
Michigan (0-2 Big Ten, 5-8 overall)
should be familiar with this type of
assignment. It has already faced five top
25 teams this season. Unfortunately for
the Wolverines, there were no daring
escapes or last-minute plot twists to bail
them out of the end of those matches,
and they lost all five.
Those matches were played against
non-conference opponents, and were
intended to toughen-up Michigan before
starting Big Ten play.
The Wolverines were disappointed in
their start to conference play, however.
They built two-games-to-one leads
against both Iowa and Illinois, but lost
each match in five games.

The Spartans swept both matches
against Michigan last season.
Field hockey
After one half of play Wednesday, the
Michigan field hockey team found itself
losing to Michigan State. Instead of get-
ting mad, the Wolverines got even, and
then sone.
The result was a three-goal outburst
and a 4-3 victory, Michigan's first in Big
Ten play this year.
The win evened Michigan's record to
4-4 overall, while the Spartans fell to 8-
Now the Wolverines have an opportu-
nity to go over the .500 mark for the first
time since Sept. 21, with a non-confer-
ence match against New Hampshire on
Sunday at noon. Michigan's chances of
winning are good.
In eight games this season, the
Wildcats have looked more like mild-
cats, scoring a total of 10 goals and
being shut out three times. New
Hampshire is 1-7 this year, with its lone
win coming against Virginia
Commonwealth, 5-1.

Ice Cube
By Andy Knudsen
Daily Sports Writer
Although there has only been on
week of practice, the Michigan hockey
team will play its first game tomorrow
But if thb players have gotten sick of
seeing the same faces in practice, th n
maybe tomorrow won't be very excItr
And if they can't wait to deliver a big..
hit, then maybe they should hold back
for a few more days.
The only opponent the Wolverines.
will have tomorrow is themselves in,
the annual Blue/White scrimmage. Due.
to the continuing renovations of Yost
Ice Arena, the game will be held at thc
Ann Arbor Ice Cube, off Scio Church=
road south of I-94, at 7:30 p.m.
"I don't get too excited (about the
scrimmage), because you go round and
round, and you really don't want to hart
anybody on your team," junior rig 16
wing Bill Muckalt said.
Assistant captain Blake Sloidi
echoed Muckalt's desire to square otTf
against a real opponent.
"It's getting old after a while going
after the same guys," the senior
defenseman said.
Michigan can release any inhibitions;

But there is a point to the intrasqua
"We're trying to go over cverything
(in practice), but you don't have a lot f:
time for repetition," Michigan coach
Red Berenson said. "We need time to+
get into doing other things - faceoffs,
defensive zone coverage, dumping the
puck in. We need some game sitL-j
"And, of course, you look at the
freshmen - how are they going dQo
show up in a first-game environment.
The Wolverines have three new fresh'
faces this year. Freshman Andrew
Merrick, who can play either center or
left wing, is expected to see a lot ofie
time this year. Freshmen defenserrn
Kevin Magnuson and Sean Peach wi4
be brought along slower than Merrick.-
according to Berenson.

Clarence Williams was tackled here, but he scored a touchdown last week against UCLA. Will Michigan get tackled tomorrow
at Northwestern? The Wolverines lost to the Wildcats, 19-16, last year at Michigan Stadium.

No surprises this year, just ask Michigan defensive end
Glenn Steele.
"Northwestern is a great team," Steele said. "They know
what it takes to win big ganes. I'm sure it's going to come
down to the final seconds."
The Wolverines won't admit to taking the Wildcats lightly
last season. Michigan will point to its four turnovers, including
a late interception thrown by Brian Griese that sealed the game.
Those mistakes led to Northwestern's 19-13 upset in
Michigan Stadium, but there's a good chance that, even after
beating Notre Dame, the Wildcats took the Wolverines a bit by
As a result, the No. 6 Wolverines (1-0 Big Ten, 4-0 overall)
know exactly what to expect when they step on the field at
Dyche Stadium tomorrow at 12:30 p.m.
Michigan is saying all the right things about Northwestern

(1-0, 3-1), and in particular, its star theater major and tailback
Darnell Autry.
"Darnell is a powerful back," Steele said. "He's experienced
,and he knows how to get yards."
Actually, he knows how to get a lot of yards.
Autry rushed for 1,785 yards last season. His 103 yards
against Michigan made him one of only five backs to run past
the century mark against the Wolverines last season.
Autry has already run up 573 yards this year, but more
impressive is the fact that he hasn't been held under 100 yards
in 17 straight games.
"That is a tribute to his toughness, his ability and his desire,"
Michigan coach Lloyd Carr said.
But things aren't completely rosy on offense. Quarterback
Steve Schnur has already thrown as many interceptions as he
did all last season.
However, the Wildcats are gaining nearly half a yard more
