.Michigan soccer looks to shoot down Eagles

By Mark Francescutti
Daily Sports Writer
Whether it's a prom date or a Michigan soccer game,
whoever controls the tempo controls the situation.
So when the 16th-ranked Wolverines (4-0) travel to
Eastern Michigan for a 4 p.m. matchup with the Eagles
(3-2) this afternoon, tempo will be critical.
After all, Eastern likes to play a physical game with a
long-ball attack.
Michigan, on the other hand, likes to use its speed and
passing game to its advantage.
If Eastern can bully the Wolverines for the entire 90
minutes, it might be able to pull off a win. Otherwise the
-Eagles might end up like Detroit did this weekend.
Sunday, the Titans prevented Michigan from getting
into the rhythm they wanted, and except for two costly
"mistakes, largely controlled Michigan's high-powered
offense for the first half.
But controlling Michigan tired the Titans in the second
half, and Michigan took over the match en route to a 3-1
Michigan coach Debbie Belkin was a little concerned at
first with the struggling Michigan offense, but knew that
eventually the Wolverines would be able to overtake the
"Detroit came out in a formation that didn't allow us to
move, so we had to get into a physical battle with them,
which is their game," Belkin said. "But once we figured
things out we got our chances."
Belkin didn't have to worry too much, with the
ichigan defense allowing just six shots.
Still, physical play always poses a threat for Michigan.
Eastern plays much like Detroit, and therefore Belkin
wants to force the Eagles to play Michigan's style.

"They are always a real physical team," Belkin said.
"One of our strengths is our passing, so we are going to
try and make it into a running game.
"We are going to make them play our style, and they are
going to have to adjust to our game."
Not only is Michigan a deeper team offensively and
defensively, but it also has history on its side.
The Wolverines have dominated Eastern in the past
three years with 5-1, 7-1 and 4-0 victories over the
Eastern must also stop junior forward Emily Schmitt,
who has three goals and an assist in the teams' past two
Junior forward Jessica Limauro also has a goal in each
of those meetings.
But the Eagles might have .one advantage - Eastern
Michigan coach Paul Scicluna coached many of the
Wolverines in club soccer. Many of the players on both
teams have played with each other before.
"We played club with a lot of those girls, and they're
just solid players. They're aggressive, they hustle," junior
Mari Hoff said. "Their coach is our old club coach. He
knows us too well."
Still, Hoff said she believes that if the Wolverines can
halt the physical play and strike first against the Eagles, it
will be another blowout for Michigan.
"If we score right away it will definitely get us going,"
Hoff said.
The Wolverines are hoping to start off with a win
against Eastern to get their three-game road trip off to a
good start.
Big Ten rivals Wisconsin and Penn State await the
Wolverines for matches later in the week.

IOC pressures baseball to make andro illegal

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - The
k IOC plans to lobby baseball and other
rofessional sports in the United
States to conform with the Olympics'
drug policy, including a ban on the
muscle-building compound used by
slugger Mark McGwire:
International Olympic Committee
medical director Patrick Schamasch
confirmed yesterday that he would
meet with Major League Baseball
officials to encourage them to adopt
the IOC's list of banned substances.
"I don't want to focus on one sub-
stance, but I will say, 'Let's harmo-
nize the list,"'Schamasch said.
McGwire, who hit his 62nd home
run last week to break Roger Maris'
record, has acknowledged that he has
used the supplement androstenedione
for the past year.
Andro, as it is popularly known,
was added to the IOC's banned list
last year under the category of ana-
olic androgenic steroids. .
Androstenedione is classified as a
"precursor" to testosterone, the male
s . The product is converted to testos-
terone in the body, helping build
muscle mass and speed recovery
from workouts.
While andro also is banned by the
NCAA, the NFL and many interna-
tional federations, it is not prohibited

by Major League Baseball.
Androstenedione is sold over the
counter in the United States as a
dietary supplement.
McGwire has denied doing any-
thing wrong, saying andro was per-
fectly safe and legal and used by
many other major leaguers.
IOC officials, gathered in Seoul
for executive board meetings, said
the use of andro should be prohibited
in all sports.
Anita DeFrantz, who as IOC vice
president is the highest-ranking
American in the Olympic movement,
said she was worried about the moral
example set by McGwire.
"I care about kids," she said. "In
my working life, I serve youth
through sports. I worry children will
think, 'OK, here's how you break all
the records.' What they don't know is
how hard you still have to work.
"We never see people training, we
see them competing. I hope Mr.
McGwire will talk about the hours he
spends in the weight training rooms
as well as perfecting his skills on the
field of play. Just taking pills doesn't
make a superb athlete. It's the other
Since news of McGwire's use of
andro became public, sales of the
supplement reportedly have soared in
the United States.
DeFrantz is concerned about the
long-term health effects of andro.
"The scary part is we don't know
what it does to you," she said. "It's
not regulated. It's not considered any-
thing the FDA regulates. I don't want
kids to be taking this stuff, or adults.
We don't know how people react to
Under IOC rules, McGwire would
be considered a drug cheat and
kicked out of the Olympics if he test-
ed positive for andro at the games.
"I think the message is wrong,"
said Jacques Rogge, vice president of
the IOC medical commission. "I
think every sport, whether profes-
sional or amateur, should make rules
that stop athletes from taking doping
agents. It's a matter of the credibility
and image of the sport."
Schamasch expressed confidence
that baseball eventually will ban
"Baseball didn't say you are
allowed to take it," he said. "It is not

prohibited, but they they never said it
is allowed. I'm sure baseball will
move toward our direction. It takes
Schamasch said he also will meet
with officials of other U.S. profes-
sional sports, including the NBA,
NFL and NHL, to encourage them to
follow the IOC's drug rules.
DeFrantz noted that IOC president
Juan Antonio Samaranch has criti-
cized U.S. professional leagues for
not doing enough to crack down on

steroids and other performance-
enhancing drugs.
She said pro sports are concerned
primarily with entertainment while in
the Olympics, athletes take an oath to
compete with integrity.
"I don't think (pro athletes) do
that," DeFrantz said. "The mission is
to entertain. It's a set of ethical issues
people in professional sports in the
U.S. need to address. They need to
consider what they're asking of their
athletes "
