FOOTBALL SATURDAY
"Football Satuldai. to those who know the Michigan athletic, tradition, is an institution unparalleled in excitement and
spirit. From the action on the field to the flwing marshmnallows in the stands. the Big House becomes the center of life
in Ann Arbo' each fall, everv.time the Hoiverines take the fiel."
And so read the introduction to the first edition of Football Saturday, published in 1997. Merely freshmen
during that memorable season, your newest cast of Daily football writers represents the last tic to those
student-journalists who had the courage to innovate. This publication has survived infancy, and is on its way to a
second generation of readers and writers. Still the best part of Football Saturday? As our mentors would say: Easy.
All the writers, photographers and producers are students -just like the players on the pages ahead.

OHIO STATE
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1 8, NOON, ABC

For the past and in the future, enjoy.

Last season was admittedly a bad sea-
son for Ohio State football - not just
because the Buckeves finished 6-6, but
because they lost the only game of the
year that matters to Ohioans, at
Michigan.
It was the first season since 1988,
coach John Cooper's first in Columbus,
that Ohio State would suffer the indigni-
ty of missing bowl season. Combine the
lack of a bowl with the loss in Ann Arbor,
and Michigan drivers likely paid a stiffer
penalty for speeding on the Ohio
Turnpike than in any other offseason.
Thankfully. Buckeyes fans can rily on
the one thing that keeps them sane every

fall - their ,hot-tern memories. Last
year was last year, and this year is a new
chance.
"it seems like this season has taken for-
ever to get here," starting quarterback
Steve Bellisari told the Columbus
Dispatch. I've been wanting to erase
some of the things that happened last year.
The only way to do that is by playing."
Ohio State faces the task of replacing
multi-year starters at crucial:positions.
Signs point to improvement, but not a
return to 10-vin status.
Bellisari has quite a skilled receiving
corps at his disposal, including seniors
Reggie Germany and Ken-Yon Rambo.
