Michigan placekicker Jeff Del Verne has a
sneaking suspicion about his brother Jim.
Although the older Del Verne played at arch-
rival Michigan State in the early '90s, Jeff thinks
that his brother no longer bleeds green and
white. In fact, he suspects that Jim Del Verne is
a Wolverine at heart.
"I caught him with a (Michigan) coat on the
other day," Del Verne said. "I think when I'm
not around he puts on Michigan stuff and runs
around the house."
But if Jim Del Verne or anyone else has any
allegiance to the Spartans, there's no reason to
hide it right now Michigan State, ranked No. 11
in the nation, has its fans feeling pretty proud to
be Spartans.
When No. 3 Michigan (2-0 Big Ten, 5-0 over-
all) kicks off against Michigan State (2-0, 5-0)
today, it will be the highest either team has been
ranked coming into the game in more than 30
years. With both teams undefeated, the pre-
game hype for this heated rivalry - which
reaches high decibels in any given year - is at
a fevered pitch on the eve of tomorrow's game.
Whether it's around the office water cooler,
on campus or over the phone, members of both
factions are declaring war in their yearly quest
for state bragging rights.
"I think the intensity of this game is very spe-
cial," Michigan coach Lloyd Carr said. "The
state is probably pretty evenly divided. It's a

game you know everybody on both sides wa
to win verv badly"
Michigan has recent history on its side, w
ning the last three meetings with the Sparta
And since 1970, the Spartans have managed
beat their hated neighbors to the southeast j
six times.
Which means absolutely nothing to this yet
participants.
"You throw out the records and you throw t
the past matchups, because it is such a t
intrastate game," said Michigan nose tackle R
Renes, a Holland, Mich. native.
But with both teams entering the game at 5
for the first time in series history, there is mu
more at stake tomorrow than merely braggi
rights. The Wolverines and the Spartans are ea
undefeated and enjoying lofty national rankin;
so a loss tomorrow would be crushing to eiti
team's hopes of a conference championship a
beyond.
"This year, because we're both 5-0, there
the extra added incentive," Renes sa
"Whoever wins is still in the hunt for the E
Ten title and the national title:"
Michigan State usually isn't harboring natic
al title hopes midway through the season, t
this year's team has some in East Lansing rea
to forget about last year's 6-6 effort that was 1e
home for the bowl games.
But Michigan State coach Nick Saban ist
going to let his players get distracted by hearii
how good they are.

State fans will have to listen to more N

Shhh... You have to be quiet to hear
it. It'll even help to put your ear to the
ground. It's a low grumbling noise,
but it's getting louder.
It's the grumbling of the disen-
chanted Spartans fan.
Spartans fans are sick. They're sick
of losing, and, more specifically,
they're sick of losing to Michigan.
They're sick of those Monday morning
water-cooler conversations where they
have to hear about Charles Woodson's
spectacular one-handed interception.
They're sick of those e-mails from
supposed friends about Desmond
Howard's diving catch in the end zone
in 1991. They're sick of opening the
paper and seeing rankings, with the
Wolverines ranked third.
For them, today isn't about a foot-
ball game, it's not about a Rose Bowl
race or the national title. It's about
redemption.
Redemption that's not coming.
MICHIGAN RUSHING OFFENSE VER-
SUS MICHIGAN STATE RUSHING.
DEFENSE:
After struggling to establish
Michigan's running game over the
first few weeks of the season,
Anthony Thomas had a breakout
game against Purdue last week, rush-
ing for 116 yards.

For the first time all season,
Michigan coach Lloyd Carr put the
ball in the hands of backs other the
Thomas for a significant amount of
time. Walter Cross and B.J. Askew
both carried the ball more than
usual, giving the Purdue defense a
different look and giving Thomas an
occasional breather. Expect to see
more of the same today.
But is that why Thomas and the
Michigan running game were so suc-
cessful? Or was it because 'Purdue's
defense just isn't very good? Probably
a combination of both.
Michigan State's defense is good.
The Spartans front seven have been
ferocious against the run, although
against primarily weak rushing teams.
Take away Notre Dame, which rushed
for 108 yards against the Spartans,
and the most anyone was able to
muster against the Spartans was
Iowa's 42 yards last week.
Thomas is just 74 yards short of
2,000 career yards, a feat established
by just 17 backs in school history.
He'll reach the mark, but probably not
this week.
Advantage: Michigan State

MICHIGAN PASSING OFFENSE
AGAINST MICHIGAN STATE PASSING
DEFENSE:
If it hasn't sunk in yet, it should:
This Michigan team is a passing
team. As sacriligious as that sounds,
it's true. The passing game has been
more effective and consistent than
the running game. Senior Tom Brady
has emerged as the better quarter-
back, but Carr will continue to use
both Brady and sophomore Drew
Henson at quarterback.
Look for sophomore wideout
David Terrell to have the best game
of his career. Terrell is not just a
playmaker, he's a showman. Like
Charles Woodson before him, he's
one of those players with a knack for
making the biggest plays in the
biggest games. Last week, Terrell's
offensive performance was slightly
diminished - he had just 2 catches
and a touchdown - because he
played so much at cornerback, stop-
ping Purdue's vaunting passing
game. With his focus back on
offense today, he just may amaze
you.
Advantage: Michigan
