Umn tUseful information

A gwide to your
By Jeff Phillips
Daily Sports Writer
For those who don't vet know of the carnal excite-
ment of a Michigan football Saturday, here is a quick
Game time! Sure, the time in the paper says 12 p.m.,
but don't expect to have a seat saved at 12 p.m. Plan on
being at the stadium about 30 minutes early for each
non-conference game (Bowling Green, Rice) and about
an hour early for every Big Ten game.
New students may be surprised by the length of time
needed to get to their seat -- until the first time they sit
in row 98, instead of row 45.
FOOD: Mmm ... Hot dogs. Two Big House hot dogs:
$5.00. One Big House Pepsi: $2.50 - Taste: Priceless.
Michigan stadium offers a wide variety of food but
perhaps the most popular meal is the classic hot dog and
pop, available just outside the seating area.
Since many fans are unwilling to pay $3.00 for a bot-
tle of water on a sunny, 80 degree day, Michigan allows
fans to bring in sealed bottles of water, but not sealed
bottles of pop, or any other popular student beverage.
BURN, BABY, BURN: Every fan has experienced sun-
burn at the Big House at some point during the football
season. Michigan stadium offers no shade during a
sunny day, so the best bet is to lather on the sunscreen.
Students rue the day when they return home to find a
nice red tanline outlining their tank tops and sunglasses.
beware! Much like fans in any Big Ten student section,
Michigan ruffians do not take kindly to big cheers in
- favor of the Buckeyes, Spartans or any other opposing
If visiting students feel they must cheer, it is best for
them to do it outside of the stadium or in the friendly
confines of their friend's apartment.

Dive to get your tickets to
sporting ' evns

Football ticket applica-
tions for incoming fresh-
men are sent out in June
and July. Tickets are $85
for six games. Students
should receive their tick-
ets in early August.
Almost all other Michi-
gan sporting events are
free with proper M-CARD
identification. Read the
Daily to keep up on your
favorite sporting event
dates and times.

You got game
You say that you can't run with Kevin Gaines, or
butt heads with the "A Train," Anthony Thomas?
So what. There are plenty of opportunities at
Michigan for students to participate in either
club sports or intramurals. Step up and get
involved - prove that just because your high
school playing days are over doesn't mean you
can't have fun. Clip this information and post it
near your room for all to see.


Sign up for basketball tickets and hockey tickets
as soon as you get on campus. Information and
schedules for both teams will be sent along with
football tickets. Hockey tickets tallied at $160
last season for about 19 games. Basketball tick-
ets cost $100 for about 17 games. Hurry, the
deadlines are mid to late September for both.


TV and radio offer several options

Not just a "game" anymore
With men's soccer and water polo "goin' pro" and gaining varsity status
this year, club sports have become as popular and competitive as ever.
Sign up and find your niche by joining one of the numerous club sports
such as:

Need to watch the away games? In the hospital
because you were hit by one of those rampant
speeding cars downtown? Well the tube offers
several sports choices around Detroit.
Channel 70 in the dorms houses WOLV-TV
which broadcasts several Michigan hockey
games. Media One, channel 23. also has a few
games. Most football games are on ABC. while
ESPN and local Detroit stations (channel 7 and
channel 20) carry most Michigan Big Ten basket-
ball games. Sadly, most nonconference basketball
games are not televised.

The Daily Sports hotlist
The five s ports other than football, basketball and hockey that people
will be talking about this year.
1. Men's soccer - Varsity blues no more. The men's soccer
team has made it to varsity status. Can the world's most popu-
lar sport become fan-friendly at Michigan? Will a first-year varsi-
ty team be able to compete?
2. Women's water polo - Many of us still don't know what water
polo is, but we're going to find out this year.
3. Gymnastics - Both the men's and women's teams climbed to
No. 1 formost of the season, only to fall shy of national champi-
onships. Can they nail the landing this year?
4. Women's basketball - The Wolverines cruised to their best
season ever last year. Eyes will be on this year's squad to top last
year and build a better following like the 12,000 maniac fans in
Purdue and Tennessee.
5. Wrestling - They don't showboat like the WWF, but wrestling
has one of the largest pure fan bases of any non-revenue Michi-
gan sport. Last season the grapplers also sent seven wrestlers
out of 10 weight classes to NCAAs.
