Carr's deflated offense
needs breath of fresh air


By Ryan White
Daily Sports WNriter
Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr
still isn't happy about what happened
last Saturday at Michigan Stadium.
The Wolverines came out flat and at
halftime, trailed Indiana, 17-10.
Michigan came out with 17 points in the
second half to win, 27-20, but it was
much too close for anyone's comfort.
Carr took responsibilty for the team's
first-half perfomance, saying he didn't
do enough to prepare the team.
So what did he say at halftime to
attempt to fix the problem?
"He told us what he told us before the
game," wide receiver Tai Streets said.
"He just emphasized it a little more."
Motivation aside, Carr knows he has
work to do before the Wolverines face
Minnesota in Minneapolis on Saturday
For starters, Michigan needs to get its
running game running.
Michigan ran for 171 yards against
the Hoosiers, but its only big play was a
48-yard Charles Woodson reverse that
went for a touchdown.
Carr said the problem hasn't been on
the offensive line, but in the secondary.

Michigan has been able to get backs
Clarence Williams and Chris Howard
through the line, but they've been met
there by safeties - safeties not blocked
by the receivers.
Streets admitted that there's room for
improvement in many areas.
"I think we're doing all right," he said.
"We just have to keep trying to get better
at blocking and running routes as well."
Routes, however, didn't appear to be
the problem with Michigan's passing
game last Saturday - unless the routes
were being run 10 yards too short.
Dreisbach was just 17-of-35 and
consistently overthrew his receivers.
He said after the game that he was
playing hurt. A shoulder injury he suf-
fered Oct. 5 at Northwestern was
aggravated in the first quarter against
the Hoosiers.
Carr said he doesn't know yet if
Dreisbach will be ready to go against the
Golden Gophers.
"We'll find that out," Carr said.
Carr added that at no time during last
Saturday's game did he think about
pulling Dreisbach.
Despite the offensive problems,
Streets said it was business as usual

between Dreisbach and the receivers,
against Indiana.
"We really didn't say anything to him,
and he really didn't say anything to us"
Streets said. "We have confidence i*
Streets couldn't pinpoint exactly what
went wrong Saturday, however. He said
Michigan simply qame out flat, and it
won't happen this week.
"This game we're going to be pre-
pared - I hope," he said. "No, we'll be
Everyone who saw Saturday's game
against the Hoosiers saw Michigan ce
ter Rod Payne limping after nearly everr
Carr said Payne suffered both a bro-
ken bone in his right hand and bruised a
knee Saturday.
But Payne being hurt is nothing new,
and Payne snapped a number of games
last season with his left hand.
"If anybody in this world will play, it
will be Rod," Carr said.
Carr also noted that inside linebacker
Eric Mayes and strong safety Steve Kira
were hurt and are questionable for
Saturday's game.

Russell Shaw and the rest of the Michigan receiving corps will be asked to improve their blocking for Saturday's game
against Minnesota. That same group of receivers is hoping quarterback Scott Dreisbach is fully recovered from the shoulder
injury that hampered him against Indiana. Dreisbach struggled against the Hoosiers, completing just 17 of 35 passes.
Michigan sports roundup:
'M' volleyball loses third straight
Blue soccer gets revenge with scoreless tie against Wisconsin

By Kevin Kasiborski

The Michigan women's volleyball
team was attempting to win for the first
time ever in both State College and
Columbus this weekend.
The Wolverines returned home with-
out managing to win a single game.
Michigan (2-6 Big Ten, 7-12 overall)
was swept by No. 5 Penn State on
Saturday and by No. 14 Ohio State on
The largest crowd to watch a Big Ten
match this year - 5,043 fans - saw
Penn State (6-2, 17-2) top Michigan.
15-5, 15-1, 15-9.
"We are a better team than we played
this weekend," Michigan coach Greg
Giovanazzi said. "And we need to get
back on the winning track."
As a team, Michigan had a .092 hit-
ting percentage on the night, compared
to .484 for the Lady Lions.
Besides being out-hit, the
Wolverines were also out-blocked (14-
2) and had fewer digs (44-27).
Michigan got 11 kills from sopho-
nore outside hitter Karen Chase and
eight kills from junior middle blocker
Sarah Jackson.
Although the Wolverines hadn't won
in Columbus in 16 tries, they managed
to take a 2-0 lead over Ohio State in
game one.
It turned out to be Michigan's only
lead of the night.
The Buckeyes (5-3, 16.3), powered
by 18 kills from Vanessa Wouters,
swept the Wolverines in three straight
games, 15-9, 15-1, 15-6.
After taking the early lead, the
Wolverines committed six hitting
errors, giving the Buckeyes a 6-2
advantage. Michigan cut it to 8-7 and
9-8, but Ohio State pulled away for a
six-point win.
Already leading 2-0 in the match,
the Buckeyes did not let up in game

three. They jumped out to a 14-2 lead
before a Wouters spike finished the
"We just couldn't do anything right,
and the stats reflect that," Giovanazzi
said. "We didn't hit or serve well, our
setting was down and we didn't block
Jackson led the team with nine kills,
and Chase had seven. Shareen Luze
topped both teams with eight digs.
The Michigan women's soccer team
battled No. I11 Wisconsin to a standstill
Sunday, securing a scoreless tie and a
measure of revenge in the process.
The Wolverines (22-1, 5-6-3) trad-
ed chances with the Big Ten champion
Badgers (5-0-2, 10-2-3) for two halves
and two overtime periods before set-
tling for a draw.
"The older players really stressed
last year's close loss against them for
motivation," Michigan forward Marie
Spaccarotella said. "I'm pretty satis-
fied, but we dominated them and we
should have won."
Both goalies made several sparkling
saves including a stop on a breakaway
by Michigan goalie Jessica Jones with
an assist from midfielder Shannon
Poole, who cleared the rebound out of
Friday, the Wolverines ended their
season-long four-game losing streak
with a 2-0 shutout of Northwestern (2-
4, 7-5-1).
Michigan forwards Jessica Limauro
and Karen Montgomery provided all
of the Wolverines' offense with the
team's only two shots of the first half.
"The key to this win was solid team
play," Michigan coach Debbie Belkin
-- Mike Rubi

Men's Tennis
This fall, the Michigan men's tennis
team has matched its success in last
spring's Big Ten championship season.
The Georgia Tech Fall Invitational this
past weekend proved no different for
the Wolverines.
Led by junior David Paradzik and
sophomore Will Farah, the Wolverines
stood out from the other schools.
Paradzik and Farah both fell to the
hands of eventual A flight winner,
Benjamin Cassaign of Georgia. After
four wins. Paradzik lost to Cassaign
Tech in the semifinals (3-6, 3-6).
"David really beat some key guys on
his way to the semifinal," Michigan
coach Brian Eisner said.
Farah, who faced Cassaign in the
first round, was placed in the back
draw after bowing out in the first
round, 7-6, 6-1. Farah went unbeaten in
his next five matches to capture the
consolation title.
"Any time you can have two of your
players reach a semifinal or final,
whether it be the main draw, or the con-
solation draw, you can feel very
pleased," Eisner said.
Junior transfer Brook Blain, playing
his second match for the Wolverines,
fell in the A flight quarterfinals, (6-0,
6-2) to Eddie Jacques of Georgia.
"Brook played his best tennis so far
in his short career here at Michigan"
Eisner said.

Michigan sophomore defenseman
Bubba Berenzweig will not make the
trip to Alaska this Thursday due to a
pulled groin. The Wolverines can only
take 22 players on the road for league
games and freshman Kevin Magnuson
will be the seventh defenseman.
"(Berenzweig) hurt his groin
(Sunday)," Michigan coach Red
Berenson said. "Before we even started
practice he came off. ... It's not much
better today. It's the kind of injury
where you have to stay off the ice and
skating is the worst thing for it."

The Atlanta Braves
take a two-games-
to-none lead back
to Atlanta tonight,
after the defending

MaddUx, Braves take 2-0 lead

NEW YORK (AP) - The way Greg Maddux was pitching,
one run would have been plenty.
The Atlanta Braves didn't need to go on another rampage,
relying instead on Maddux's eight shutout innings to beat the
New York Yankees 4-0 last night for a 2-0 lead in the World
Fred McGriff drove in three runs as the Braves won their
fifth straight game in the postseason, a span in which they've
outscored opponents 48-2. On this night, though, Maddux put
the focus right back on Atlanta's awesome starters.
Because of an earlier rainout, there will be no travel day.
Instead, Game 3 will be tonight, with 1995 World Series MVP
Tom Glavine starting for the Braves against David Cone.
Maddux made it look easy, allowing six hits, permitting
only two runners past first base and walking none. The lone
time the Yankees put two runners on base in an inning, the
four-time Cy Young winner induced Wade Boggs to bounce

into a double play and got Bernie Williams to ground out to
end the sixth.
Mark Wohlers struck out the side in the ninth for the Braves,
allowing a two-out single to Cecil Fielder.
With nothing to cheer for, frustrated Yankees fans took to
running on the field in the later innings. In fact, five of the4
touched second base, more people than the Yankees' offense
put there. The game ended with a section of Braves fans chant-
ing and chopping behind home plate.
Maddux struck out two in improving to 7-4 lifetime in the
postseason, including a 3-1 mark this year.
McGriff hit RBI singles in the first and third innings andliad
a sacrifice fly in the fifth. Added to his two RBIs on Sunday
night, he set a record with 15 RBIs in a postseason. McGriff
broke the mark of 14 set by Reggie Jackson in 1978, although
he had only the AL playoffs and the World Series to do it for
the Yankees.
