Michigan player of the game: Tom Brady
When he started the biggest game of the season, Brady was in the center of
a quarterback controversy. Sixty minutes later, he was the toast of the
Michigan lockerroom. Brady showed fine touch on a fade pass to Tai Streets
and also hit Marcus Knight for a 48-yard bomb.

After 100 years, rivalry
still burn s with intense fire

y S atR*
Daily Sports Editor
The stores are out of green, white,
maize and blue colored paint. T-shirt
vendors are making a killing on profani-
ty laden apparel. Bars are full, libraries
are empty and the sheep are safe.
Must be a Michigan versus Michigan
State weekend.
Everybody knows about the rivalry,
100 years of Michigan versus Michigan
State. In one hundred years, this rivalry
has meant a lot of things.
Tradition. Pride. Respect. And the one
biggest thing - 100 years of trash talk-
ing. Both teams provided their fair share
of jawing on Saturday.
"Early in the week (Michigan State
wide receiver Plaxico Burress) said that
it was like taking candy from a baby,
talking about our defensive back."
Michigan safety DeWayne Patmon said.
"We took it personally."
Trash talking has been known to back-
fire from time to time (see Boston,
David 1997). For boasting wide receiver
Burress, it did backfire.
"He was talking a lot of trash" during
the game, Patmon said. "So every time
he went in the middle we tried to hit him
hard,"
Patmon and the other members of the
secondary hit in hard on several occa-
sions. In the second quarter, Patmcn and
safety Jamnes Whicy converged on
Burress af r he madle a catch and jarred
the ball loose.
After a pileup and scramble, Patmon
recovered fumble for the Wolverines.
"He hasn't been in this game and he

doesn't know about the tradition,"
Patmon said. "I still yet don't know
much about the tradition, but I'm learn-
ing every year."
For the most part, the Wolverines not
only know about the tradition but have
grown up following the rivalry. Most
natives of the state of Michigan chose
sides while growing up.
"For me and particularly the guys who
grew up in this state, like Mark
Campbell, it's the last one," Michigan
coach Lloyd Carr said. "That always
means a lot, because that game, they'll
always remember a long time."
One of those Michigan guys is defen-
sive lineman Nate Miller. Miller, a fifth-
year senior, filled in for an aching Rob
Renes and had a breakthrough game.
Miller hurried Michigan State quarter-
back Bill Burke on numerous occasions
and sacked him twice for 16 yards.
"Nate's from Imlay City, Michigan,"
Renes said. "And he's an in-state guy, he
knew how big the game was."
It's surprising that the series is still a
big one. Having been played 91 times
since 1888, the Wolverines now lead the
series 60-26-5 and haven't lost since
1995. Geography remains the biggest
reason for the rivalry.
For that reason, people from other
states play down the significance of the
game.
"I disagree that this game is more
important than others," Michigan wide
receiver Tai Streets said. "This win is just
as important if we beat anyone else. It's
the Big Ten opener, so we needed to win

the game."
Streets, a product of the Chicago sub-
urbs, was more concerned about the out-@
come of the Cubs game than talking
about the rivalry.
Coaches also try to play down the
emotions involved playing an in-state
contest. All week long, Carr insisted that
the timing of the game so early in the
season didn't matter. But after an
extremely hot day last Saturday, Carr
changed his tune.
"It does seem a little bit early," CarrW
said. "I always liked it when the leaves
are starting to turn and it gets a little bit
colder. I can't remember playing a game
that was this hot."
Each Michigan versus Michigan State
game has its texture, something that will
remind everyone about the game years
from now. Last year it was Charles
Woodson's one-handed interception.
The year before that was a Michigan
blowout. Three years ago Michigan lost
in the snow when the Spartans came
from behind and won.
Perhaps the heat will be the most mem-
orable aspect of this game. But one con-
stant through all those games - and what
the players will probably most remember
- was the trash talking and boasting that
comes with being the state champion.
"There's a lot of talking on both sides,
but I think that just goes into to the love
each person has for the sport," Dhani
Jones said. "There's always gonna be@
trash. But the thing is, once the game is
over, you go back to being people. You
go back to being polite to each other."

SOUTH BEND (AP) - Notre Dame
pulled out another amazing comeback
under the Golden Dome.
Tony Driver, who left school briefly
two weeks ago, made two key intercep-
tions in the closing minutes and Jim
Sanson kicked a 17-yard field goal with
57 seconds left to give the No. 23
Fighting Irish a 31-30 victory over
Purdue.
Driver, who left school for two days
because he was reportedly upset about
being switched from running back to
safety, intercepted a pass from Drew
Brees with 1:39 remaining and returned
it to the Purdue 5 yard line to set up
Sanson's game-win-
ning field goal.
Purdue (2-2) hada CONFERENCE
final chance to win Roundup
after reaching its 44,
but Driver picked off another pass by
Brees with 37 seconds left to seal the
victory for the Irish (2-1), who trailed
by nine points with just under eight
minutes remaining.
Iowa 37, Illinois 14
Kahlil Hill and Joe Slattery scored
touchdowns on returns and Tim
Douglas kicked three field goals of
over 50 yards as Iowa beat Illinois 37-
1d

Austin Wheatley set up Ladell Betts' 4-
yard scoring run.
Iowa forced another Illinois punt,
which Hill returned 57 yards with 9:42
left for a 17-0 lead.
The Hawkeyes took control for good
when Kurt Kittner, the first freshman to
start at Illinois since 1946, had a pass
intercepted by Slattery and returned 47
yards for the touchdown that made it
24-0.
No.14 Wisconsin 38, Northwestern
7
The nation's top-ranked defense
joined in the fun as the Wisconsin
Badgers got touchdowns via the pass,
the run and on blocked punt and punt
returns in a 38-7 thumping of
Northwestern.
Ron Dayne ran over the Wildcats for
168 yards on 22 carries, Mike Samuel
threw for a touchdown and ran for one
and freshman punt returner Nick Davis
and sophomore defensive back Ryan
Marks also got into the end zone for
No. 14 Wisconsin (1-0, 4-0).
The Badgers stretched their shutout
streak to 13 quarters before Nick
Kreinbrink's 46-yard touchdown pass
to diving freshman Sam Simmons with
four seconds left.
