Aik they have become a school that's more
Mue-added if they do come into the confer-
ence'Goss said. "I'd like to seem them there."
Notre Dame and the Big Ten have met three
other times in the past seven months to discuss
issues associated with affiliation, and both par-
ties have conveyed satisfaction with the meet-
ings. "Regardless of the decision, it will have
been. a productive venture," said Dennis
Brown, Notre Dame's associate director of
public affairs. "It is a good process to go
ig Ten associate Sue Ryan agreed that the
cess has been beneficial to the conference
as well as to Notre Dame.
"This has clearly been in the interest of both
parties; or (the talks) wouldn't have gone this
far" Ryan said.
But although the discussions may have been
educational, the idea of a Big Ten-Notre Dame
The Michigan Daily - Wednesday, February 3, 1999 - 7
heads to vote Friday on whether to continue Big Ten talks
merger has been met with heavy criticism.
D'juan Francisco, director of student pro-
grams for the Notre Dame Alumni
Association, said that many alumni are
opposed to membership.
"It's beyond football, it's beyond athletics
and it's beyond academics" said Francisco,
who was a defensive back for Notre Dame's
1989 national championship football team.
"Notre Dame has a brand name. Notre
Dame has been independent. Doing something
like (joining the Big Ten) would change what a
lot of people felt Notre Dame stood for'
Francisco said many alumni feel Notre
Dame could lose its identity if it allied itself
with large, public universities in the Big Ten.
Currently, the private university is 85 percent
Although no vote has been taken within the
alumni association, Francisco said he expects
trustees Beth Toomey and Dave Johnson to
vote against further dialogue with the Big Ten
on Friday. Both trustees are members of the
Brown agreed that losing independent,
national status concerns many alumni.
"Notre Dame is in a different situation, in
that it has been independent for so long"
Brown said. "But it should be understood that
we have nothing but the highest regard for the
schools of the Big Ten."
The Notre Dame Student Senate voted
unanimously to oppose membership. Pat Foy,
chair of the senate's committee on Big Ten
membership, said the vote came down to two
concerns: regionalization of the student body
and loss of academic focus. Foy said the senate
was concerned that emphasis would be refo-
cused on research and graduate studies if Notre
Dame joined the Big Ten and consequently the
Committee on Institutional Cooperation.
The CIC is the academic parallel of the Big
Ten, and also includes the University of
Chicago. Michigan Student Assembly
President Trent Thompson said last night that
the MSA has no official position on the matter.
Penn State University, the last university to
join the Big Ten, faced similar decisions in
1990. "It is difficult to put ourselves in Notre
Dame's shoes" said Budd Thalman, Penn
State's associate athletic director for communi-
cations. "We did have national prominence,
and we still do. The Big Ten is as close to a
national conference as exists."
Notre Dame currently competes with the
Big East conference in every sport except foot-
ball, where it is independent. The Big East con-
tains several private Catholic schools, includ-
ing Georgetown University and Boston
Notre Dame has also sold the broadcasting
rights to all its home football games to NBC
through the 2005 football season. But the Big
Ten is currently under exclusive contract with
ABC for football telecasts.
"I think Notre Dame would bring some star
power to the Big Ten," Thalman said. "If you
can have your own television network, that
pretty much says it all."
Goss said if Notre Dame is concerned with
issues of national prominence, it need only
look toward Ann Arbor.
"If I was in their shoes, that would be a ques-
tion I'd ask myself," Goss said. "'Do I lose my
independence? My ability to speak out on
national issues? My ability to recruit national-
ly?' I think all they have to do is look at
"We do all of those things - and I think
they can do the same," Goss said.
The Fighting Irish defeated Michigan Sept. 5 at Notre Dame
Stadium. The team has traditionally been independent.

Levy, who was not at the conference.
He added that residence staff and security
reported slightly less than 1,000 alcohol viola-
tions in residence halls last year, "so someone
must be reporting something."
Haveman called for greater enforcement from
local law enforcement authorities to create an
environment that is not supportive of alcohol.
"Why can't we use dogs to sniff out the alcohol
that isn't suppose to be" in residence halls,
Nate Smith-Tyge, chair of Michigan State
University's student government, said he is happy
with the ideas Haveman suggested but feels
apprehensive when the focus is turned to enforce-
Smith-Tyge said students often react negatively
to regulations and police enforcement.
"We don't want anymore Munn Fields at any
other campus," Smith-Tyge said, citing the May 2
riot that erupted ,in the streets of East Lansing
after Michigan State administrators banned alco-
hol at Munn Field, a popular campus tailgating
"We need to involve students at every level, at
every campus, across the state in this discussion,"
Michigan Student Assembly President Trent
Thompson echoed Tyge-Smith's approval of the
involvement of students in the discussions.
Thompson said during the afternoon closed ses-
sion, discussions moved from the ideas Haveman
presented to what other universities are doing to
address binge drinking behaviors.
Thompson said some of Haveman's proposals
were "pro-active" but others were "extreme."
"Expelling people is not going to solve the
problem," Thompson said.
Many people who spoke at the conference said
that education, along with a coordinated effort
from universities, is the key to changing drinking
"They've hit on some key points," said Mary
Kuntz, an adviser in the state Senate Majority
"We've lost the notion of social drinking," said for-
mer Interfraternity Council President Brad Holcman.
"The way to go is to teach responsible drink-
"We can change social
behavior over time."
- Peter McPherson
Michigan State University President.
Though some believe that it will be hard to
change campus attitudes toward alcohol, those-at
the conference are optimistic.
"It is my belief if there is a sustained effort with
everyone's involvement, this can be done," said
Michigan State University President M. Peter
The conference was hosted by the Presidents
Council, an organization that addresses common
issues shared by Michigan's public universities.
Executive Director Glenn Stevens said "there is
strength in numbers," explaining that sharing wis
dom across institutions will be most beneficiaj.
Conference panelist University- Dean of
Students E. Royster Harper said that having
everyone's input will create results.
