won 28 of the last 29 meetings. Michigan won that
battle convincingly, 173-95.
"It was a good defense," Irvin said. "I won't take
any credit away from Michigan. They played a great
game on defense."
Michigan State didn't even have a first down in the
third quarter when Andre Weathers and Charles
Woodson picked off two Todd Schultz passes.
Woodson's interception was exceptionally amazing,
but the All-American cornerback said it only made up
for an earlier oversight
With Michigan up 3-0, late in the first quarter,
Michigan State lined up for an apparent 39-yard field
goal. But holder Bill Burke took the snap and threw
deep to Irvin, who lined up wide left, out of the view
of any Michigan player. Burke lobbed the ball up for
Irvin who caught it a good 15 yards away from the

"Usually on field goals, I check the opponent's for-
mation," Woodson said. "Today, for some reason. I
didn't check the guy coming in and they made a great
play and caught us off-guard.
"Those are the types of plays that can take a team
out of sync. But we never allowed that to happen to
After the next six possessions ended in Spartan
punts and a Marcus Ray interception, Michigan had
the ball on its own five-yard line with 5:36 to go in the
first half. The Wolverines promptly drove 95 yards in
I I plays, culminating with a one-yard sneak by quar-
terback Brian Griese, giving them a 10-7 lead. The
drive was highlighted by a 51-yard scamper by Chris
Howard that brought Michigan out from deep within
its own territory.
"That was an opportunity for us," Griese said of
Michigan's precarious field position to start the drive.
"We didn't look at it as a bad situation, we looked at it
as a chance to shut everybody up."
And it did. The drive lasted until the final minute of
the half, giving Michigan the momentum coming out

of the lockerroom and quieting the crowd. Three of
Michigan State's first four possessions in the second
half ended in interceptions.
Meanwhile, Michigan pounded the ball on the
ground, looking to establish a running game that was
almost non-existent in the first half Of Michigan's four
third-quarter drives, the Wolverines could only muster a
30-yard Kraig Baker field goal. Two drives ended in
Michigan punts, one in a missed 38-yard field goal.
Even though Michigan went into the fourth quarter
up only six points, its defense stopped the Spartans
short of the 50-yard line until the game's final minute.
when a Michigan victory was well in hand.
Woodson's second interception gave the Wolverines
the ball at the Michigan State 33. and five plays later,
Howard dove over the goal line from two yards out,
giving Michigan a 20-7 lead with 12 minutes left.
Baker kicked his third field goal of the game with
just under eight minutes left to close out the scoring.
"This was a big win for us because it keeps us in the
race for the Big Ten championship," Michigan coach
Lloyd Carr said.

Although the law firm only found
what it termed to be three minor viola-
tions, Goss said he was concerned
about many things in the report and that
it was time to make a change in the pro-
gram's direction.

LO -Academic Adviser Wendy
loods, whose three daughters accompa-
ed her to the march, said the time she
>ent with her daughters and the other
omen was a bonding experience.
"It was incredible," Woods said. "I
ink there was a lot of bonding starting
om the moment we got to the Union."
Woods' daughter Kiana, who gradu-
ed from the University's Law School

in May, said she was thankful to share
the march with the most important
women in her life.
"I couldn't think of anybody else I
wanted to share that experience with,"
Kiana Woods said.
Moo-Young said mechanical diffi-
culties, including broken windshield
wipers, forced the University group's
trip form Ann Arbor to Philadelphia to
be lengthened, but it still bonded the
women together. "We had a lot of dif-
ferent struggles in getting there," Moo-
Young said. "(But,) the harsh condi-
tions were actually what brought us
closer together"
Maurant and Moo-Young formed the
student group called Million Woman
March Student Initiative with the pur-
pose of gathering interested march par-
ticipants. They now plan to continue the
group for other reasons, including to
put together a film presentation on the
march and to open campus dialogues to
continue the spirit of the march.

reported that former Brigham Young
coach Roger Reid would be hired for
the position.
But at that point, Reid was flying into
Ann Arbor for a Friday morning inter-
view with Goss, who said the job never
was offered to anyone until Friday after-
noon, when he called Ellerbe.
Goss said he will resume the search
for a permanent coach immediately fol-
lowing the season.
"I believe that by conducting a search
just after the season ends, we will be
able to find an excellent permanent
head coach and satisfy the core values
our department holds dear" Goss said.
Those values set by Goss when he

easy touch-

took office include honesty and integrity,
accountability and responsibility, respect
and compassion, competitive spirit, and
that the team must come first.
During the short search, Goss angered
many athletic directors and coaches
throughout the college basketball world,
including Duke coach Mike
Krzyzewski, who publicly chastised
Goss for conducting a search that threat-
ened to take away a coach from his pro-
gram so close to the start of the season.
"If I'm to set a standard with my val-
ues, I can't talk out of both sides of my
mouth,' Goss said.
As for whether Ellerbe is interested
in earning himself a permanent job as

Michigan head coach: "This is a great
job," Ellerbe said. "You'd be nuts not to
want this job.:
