Cat-astrophe?
1995 is a distant memory for
former Big Ten champion

By Jim Rose
Daily Sports Editor
They've been called everything from
hapless to hopeless, from lucky to fluky,
from purple people eaters to pansies.
And, in some circles, they're known
as the Northwestern Wildcats.
Whatever they may be called, they've
Stainly seemed to have Michigan's
ber in recent years.
Three years ago, they shocked the
Wolverines in Ann Arbor, 19-13, en
route to a Big Ten title and a Rose Bowl
appearance. People said it was a fluke.
One year later, they pulled it off again,
17-16 this time, on a last-second field
goal in Evanston. They went on to be
co-champs of the league. People said it
was luck.
Last year, Michigan finally exacted a
asure of revenge with a 23-6 win
rthe Wildcats. And people went
back to saying they were purple.
But purple or not, the truth is that in
each of the past three years, the winner
of this game has gone on to win at least
a share of the Big Ten championship.
And it's only been Michigan once.
Northwestern(0-3 Big Ten, 2-4) hosts
Michigan at 7 p.m. tomorrow night at
Ryan Field in Evanston.
The Wolverines (2-0, 3-2) likely need

to win to keep their Rose Bowl hopes
alive. The Wildcats likely need to win to
keep their fans' interest alive.
After two magical seasons,
Northwestern, it seems, is once again
Northwestern. Last season, the Wildcats
missed postseason play and ended 5-7.
Their slow start this season has fans and
skeptics wondering exactly what turned
the perennial doormat into a two-time
contender - and then back into a door-
mat again.
If nothing else, the departure of quar-
terback Steve Schnur contributed. In his
final two seasons, the Wildcats were 19-
5 (15-1 in the Big Ten). Since then,
they're 7-11.
This year, redshirt freshman Gavin
Hoffman has handled the duties behind
center, and although his stats are modest
(176 yards passing per game), he does
have one valuable asset at his disposal.
His receiver.
D'Wayne Bates, a fifth-year senior
and Biletnikoff Award candidate as one
of the nation's top receivers, is a game-
breaker. He's on pace to set a new Big
Ten record for career receiving yardage.
Five more receptions would place him
fifth in Big Ten history for receptions.
Quite simply, he gives the Wildcats a
chance.

"D'Wayne Bates has been a thorn in
our side for a long time now, Michigan
coach Lloyd Carr said. "I'll be glad to
see him graduate and move on."
Another holdover from the Wildcats'
Rose Bowl trips is another fifth-year
senior, placekicker Brian Gowins.
Gowins kicked the last-second field
goal that beat Michigan two years ago,
and holds seven of eight Northwestern
kicking records. He's also the leading
scorer in school history, and is chasing
his second straight berth on the all-Big
Ten first team.
On the other side of the ball is one of
the best linebackers in the Big Ten.
Fifth-year senior Barry Gardner had 20
tackles against Michigan last year and
led the conference in that category en
route to becoming a first team honoree.
The best thing about him? He's a former
walk-on.
"Gardner, a year ago, just killed us,"
Carr said. "He's a football player that,
every week, plays hard. He's 250
pounds, and he doesn't stay blocked."
His presence is of particular impor-
tance this week because Michigan tail-
back Anthony Thomas is not expected
to play. Thomas is nursing an ankle
injury and would likely play only in the
event of an emergency situation.

Niagara hits town for pair

By Mark Francescutti
Daily Sports Writer
It's about time.
Time is of the essence this weekend for the
Achigan hockey team and its opponent, Niagara.
or the Wolverines, it's about time that every
player on the team gets some ice time, according to
Michigan coach Red Berenson.
With only three games to base his lineup choices
on so far, Berenson will give his lineup a little more
variety this weekend in an effort to answer a prob-
lem, if one can call it a problem, in the depth of the
Michigan defense.
With nine quality defensemen competing for six
available spots, Berenson has lots of skaters to

choose from.
So tonight, two more players - sophomore Bob
Gassoff and Freshman Jay Vancik - will get their
first shot to impress the coaches on defense.
The tandem is scheduled to replace Sean Peach
and Scott Crawford, both of whom will mostly like-
ly play tomorrow.
Gassoff, who was scratched against Lake
Superior, did play in the exhibition game against
Guelph, but as a forward.
Berenson said he believes that seeing all the
Wolverines in action is extremely important before
Michigan resumes its CCHA schedule next week-
end with a pair of road contests against Alaska-
Fairbanks.

Ray to miss next three games
There has been quite a bit of confusion surrounding the
NCAA's ruling on how many games Michigan football safe-
ty Marcus Ray is required to miss.
Since the last report on Wednesday, the situation has been
straightened out. Ray will miss the next three games, instead
ofjust the next two.
"There was some confusion during the conversation on
the telephone Thursday (Oct. 8) as to what we understood
the length of Ray's suspension to be," Michigan Athletic
Director Tom Goss said in a written statement. "When we
received the official letter late Friday, the NCAA spelled out
that Marcus would have to miss 50 percent of the season"
In an I-game season, Ray would only serve a five-game
suspension. Since Michigan scheduled a 12th game this sea-
son - Nov. 28 in Hawaii - the penalty is six games.
Ray will not be eligible until Nov. 7 against Penn State.

Michigan versus Michigan State is
one of the strongest rivalries in colle-
giate athletics. Today's soccer game,
however, will most likely turn into a;
lopsided affair.
Michigan (4-3-1 Big Ten, 10-3-1) is
currently ranked 19th by Soccer
America and is riding a three game win
streak. Michigan State (2-9-1, 0-7-1) is
