The Wolverines invaded Michigan State territory
his past weekend and took four first-place finishes
t thle Michigan State Open.
The open tournament included teams from all
vcrss the area including Northwestern, Ohio State
and Michigan State.
e Wolverines grappled to four top finishes
ictm senior Joe Warren at 133 pounds, juniors
amion Logan at 141 pounds and Otto Olson at
4 pounds and freshman Anthony Holifield at 157
Punds. The victory by Olson was his second pre-
eason crown.
"I was very happy with everyone's intensity and
ggression,' Michigan coach Joe McFarland said.
It was the style of wrestling I like to see - aggres-
iye, putting much pressure on the opponents until
he end of the third period.
*heir hard training has paid off, the wrestlers
ave positive attitudes and positive outcomes are
cming out of this. We received many complements
the way we were wrestling as a team."
Freshman Foley Dowd lost to his own teammate
arren in the 133 pound finals, and sophomore
undy Hrovat also came in second at 184 pounds.
reshman Clark Forward, who finished first-place
t the Eastern Michigan Open, came in fourth this
me around.
"It is hard to come in as a freshman, but I am
proud." Forward said. "The State tournament
lot tougher than the Eastern Michigan Open,

In case they forgot, they learned at Penn State. Down
10 points after surrendering a 10 point lead of their own,
the Wolverines didn't have much to feel good about. The
drive that earned them a touchdown and drew them with-
in three points began ugly and finished ugly - until Tom
Brady thrust his hand across the yellow-painted goal
line. But they didn't give up.
"When we play aggressive like that, we play with a lot
of emotion and enthusiasm," Hall said. "It carries over
and shows in our performance."
And since Ohio State is usually the last game of the
season, there's absolutely no reason for the Wolverines
not to leave the field on Saturday utterly spent.
"I need this to be my best game personally," senior
nose tackle Rob Rene said. "All the seniors collectively,
... we need to finish the season the way we started it, the
way we want the season to continue."
Renes knows he's trotted the same cliches out for I1
weeks. He said as much yesterday. But he also knows
how much winning this game would mean to him and all
of his senior teammates.
"I understand that I personally have to come out and
play the best game I've played here at Michigan," said
safety Tommy Hendricks, also a senior "That's the kind
of game it's going to be."

dashed Ohio State's title hopes in 1995
and 1996 before securing its own in 1997.
A year ago the Buckeyes maintained a
shot at the title by downing Michigan, 31-
16, to remain No. 2 in the country.
With little on the line regarding the
national picture, the Buckeyes insist that
pride is the motivator.
Coming off back-to-back conference
losses for the first time in seven seasons,
Cooper's squad hopes to avoid extending
that streak to three - a skid not seen in
Columbus since 1988.
"What motivates me is that its
Michigan-Ohio State, Keller said. "Its
my last game and its pride on the line. Its
everything you hear about around hear."

What Keller and his Ohio State team-
mates haven't heard much of this season
is praise for a squad that has stumbled'to
a 3-4 conference mark as questions of
dedication and commitment loom.
"I just hope we can dig down and find
some of that pride and see some of the
tradition you hear about," Keller said.
That tradition will be a foremost on
the minds of players like Houser, whose
older brother and father also lined up for
the Buckeyes against Michigan. For
Houser, this weekend's game marks the
hope of a silver lining for the scarlet and
"We all realize that the importance of
this game can never be diminished b
the type of season either of us has ha;
Houser said. "We understand that this is
a one-game season"

The Michigan wrestlers stole four first-place fin-
ishes in East Lansing this past weekend.
because it was filled with strong Big Ten schools. I
suffered two really close losses and I was upset, but
now I have a better understanding of what I have to
work on. That is what open tournaments are for."
The Michigan State Open continued Michigan's
exhibition tournament season. Although the tourna-
ments have no bearing on team records, the
Wolverines send individual wrestlers to the compe-
titions for a chance to see where they will stand for
the rest of the season in terms of conditioning and
"All of our conditioning is really hard." said
Forward "The most important thing is that each day,
you get something else down."
Michigan State tied Michigan for the most first-
place finishers with four of its own, but Michigan
had the most weight class finalists.
This tournament has given the wrestlers a better
understanding of what they need to work on indi-
The Wolverines begin the dual-meet season at
Michigan State on Dec. 10.
"There's always a long way to go," Holifield said.
"But we're working really hard and I think we're
going to do very well this season."
