Current outside hitters on the
Wolverines can learn about spiking on
the other side of the world from their
head coach and serving back home in
Ann Arbor from the assistants.
Those assistants have plenty of
reasons to talk about their careers. In
addition to her all-conference acco-
lades, Brownlee was selected the
team's Most Valuable Player in 1995
after helping Michigan to the
National Invitational Volleyball
Challenge - its first postseason trip
since 1981.
She ranks fourth all time at
Michigan with 995 kills and 2,655
kill attempts.
But Brownlee might have amassed
even bigger numbers if she had
played her natural position all four

years. The 5-foot-Il native of
London, Ontario, was a middle
blocker for her first two years out of
team necessity.
Similarly, Smith's career might
have been more illustrious under dif-
ferent circumstances.
After leading the team with 104
blocks as a sophomore, the outside
hitter suffered shoulder problems
that limited her
output during her
final two sea-

Smith and
Brownlee can't bring their playing
years back, or add to those career
numbers, but they can pass their
experience on to the next class of
Michigan stars.
Maybe those faces, too, will some-
day enter Michigan's coaching ranks.

From StafiReports
There are two things that are almost
impossible to avoid in Ann Arbor: Nike
swooshes and pizza places. Both pop up
everywhere, but pizza companies have
to use any advantage to make them-
selves unique.
For the new Dominos Pizza store on
the corner of State and Liberty streets,
the advantage is in the form of Detroit
Piston forward Jerome Williams, who
wvii be signing autographs from 7-9
p.m. tonight.
Williams' apperance goes along with
a weekong proram orf events run by

Pistons owner William Davidson,
Dominos Pizza owner Tom Monaghan,
and Ann Arbor mayor Ingrid Sheldon.
Williams, the Pistons' first-round
draft pick in 1996 out of .Georgetown,
was selected because of his youth and:
clean-cut image.
"We are having (Williams) come in
to promote a partnership between the
college community and the athletic
community." Dominos resturant man-
ager Hamed Saghah said. "We want
people to see a young healthy role>
model and we hope it contributes to the
image we want to present."

et office by Aug. 27, and have it
But many students felt the
University offered vague instruc-
tions on how to enter the lottery.
"I had no clue when I got into
town," junior political science major
Brian Faulkner said. "I had to call
the athletic ticket office to find out
what was going on:"
Cooper agrees that many students
were left in the dark.
"Obviously it was a system with-
out PR and this received bad reac-
tion from students," he said.
While Fenton admits that the pub-
licity was hindered by time con-
straints, she feels that-the new sys-
tem offers students a better chance
to get tickets.
"It gives students a longer period
of time to enter versus last year
when we had a sale that ended
before school started," he said.
Last year students were asked to
pick up wristbands that instructed
them when to pick up their season
tickets. Anyone with a wristband
was guaranteed season tickets. But
because the wristbands were given
out before school began, many stu-
dents had no chance to get tickets.
"This year," Fenton said, "anyone
that comes over here has a chance."
For many students, fan loyalty
remains an issue with the lottery
"Before, if you didn't get tickets it
was because you didn't get up early
enough," said Ryan Henderson, a
senior business management major.
"But this way it's out of your hands.
We have a number of friends that
didn't get tickets who are huge foot-
ball fans."
The university cannot guarantee
every student a ticket. In 1989, the
student union agreed to allot 14,000
tickets to students each season. That
number remains the same in 1997.
Some students feel that this univer-
sity policy is unfair.
"It shouldn't be a question as to
whether or not you get tickets to
your school's football games,"
senior Dylan Thorpe said. "They're
just money-hungry. They're screw-
ing over the students."
CU, starting safety Ryan Black
agrees. "I think it is bullshit - it
comes down to money and people
being greedy," Black said. "If you
can't come here and pay your tuition
and even get tickets to see the foot-
ball game - I'd go crazy if I were a
fan. I think it's crap."
Fenton explains that because of

the team's national exposure
winning record, the student interest
equals the public interest. Therefore
the athletic department does not
have enough tickets for everyone.
There has been talk within the uni-
versity to change the number of
tickets given to students but Fenton
does not see the change occurring
any time soon.
"We don't have any more ticks
to give to students because v~e
selling out on the public tickets too;"
Fenton said.
Surprisingly, CU ranks high
among Big 12 schools in student
ticket allotment.
Of Folsom Field's 51,400 seats,
the school gives 27 percent to stu-
In comparison, the University of
Nebraska guarantees its students
14,000 tickets, only 19 percen f
the university's 73,650 stadium
According to Cooper, 14,300 stu-
dents entered the lottery and only
freshmen were denied tickets.. The
winners in the lottery were ,otted
by their student identification num-
bers at Folsom Field.
But for some students winningthe
lottery brought about more fru'
tion rather than relief.
Sophomore Amanda Honea wit-
ed in line for nearly three hours
before she received her student tick-
"I can't believe that the university
makes you wait in line like this on a
Friday," Honea said.
"I just waited in line for 45 min-
utes on Wednesday to get my ftame
in the lottery."
The ticket office was forceo
extend its ticket pick-up deade
from Saturday to Wednesday in- an
attempt to shorten the long line$' and
ensure that each lottery :winer
received tickets.
Cooper understands thatthe lot-
tery system has its flaws.
"Ben Goldmanis (UCSU tri-exec-
utive) and I will definitely' look at
the problems," Cooper said.
Fenton would not comment otoe
lottery system's return next year.
"There is potential in the future
that you can enter the lottery in the
spring before you leave school,"
Fenton said.
Both Cooper and Fenton agree
that CU is willing to work with ;ny-
one in order to find a better system.
But for now, it appears that the lot-
tery is the best policy, accordink to
the school.
"It is consistent and fai," Fein
said. "You either win or you don't
win - it's just a lottery."
