memory of the loss in Columbus,
"One thing that sticks out in my
mind is how we sent the seniors out.
We wanted to send them out right.
But I remember walking off the field
and thinking that Jon Janson is leav-
ing with his last game being a loss at
Ohio State and that is something I
don't want to do."
But believe it or not the crowd
noise may be even louder in the
Horseshoe this year. The renovation
to the stadiumn moved the fans closer
to the field. And that is hard for most
of the Wolverines to believe.
"From what I remember two years
ago it may be the loudest place we've
played," quarterback Drew Henson
said. "I basically have to scream as
loud as I can."
Center David Brandt agreed that
the calls will be hard to make and be D
heard, and knowing the plays in the j
huddle will be that much more
The team will also practice this
week with loud music playing to
simulate the crowd noise.
BULLETIN BOARD MATERIAL:
Much like the week before the
Michigan State game, a tight leash is
being kept on all the players to make
sure no incriminating material is
"No one wants to be the one on the
bulletin board," senior defensive end
Eric Wilson said. "There is no need
to call someone out, it's the people
on the field that really matter."
Yesterday, Carr remember a bul-
letin board moment that won't soon
"The worse thing that can happen
is have some player guarantee victo-
ry," Carr said. "I will never forget the
meeting after Jim Harbaugh guaran-
teed victory over Ohio State.
Everyone was nervous about going
into that meeting because he had
guaranteed victory. Bo said
Harbaugh shot his mouth off so now
its up to you to back him up."'
The record: Thomas will head to
Columbus 165 yards away from
equaling Jamie Morris' career rush-
ingt record at Michigan of 4,393
Iven though Thomas averages
almost 150 yards a game, the Ohio
State defense will be tougher than
the previous competition. Last time
the Wolverines visited Ohio State
they only had four rushing yards.
'Ohio State is No. I in the Big Ten
against the rush," Carr said. "Except
for points scored I think that is the
most important statistic a team can
Although Thomas claims not to
care about records, he has been
grateful to his offensive line for his
statistics so far this season. Thomas
even went as far as to buy the line
pizzas after a 200-yard game.
And for that line, this record may
even be more important.
"It means the world to us," Backus
said. "It shows people that we are
doing our job.
QUESTIONAB.LE?: Ohio State tail-
back Derek Combs, and receivers
Reggie Germany and Ken-Yon
Rambo are currently listed as ques-
tionable for Saturday's game. The
three are top specialists on the
But the Wolverines don't believe
that for a second.
"That's bologna," Carr said. "They
will all play. Mark that down."
Due to the intensity of this rivalry,
the Michigan players know not to
count any of those players out.
"When it comes down to some-
thing like this, if you aren't on your
deathbed you will be playing in that
game,' Wilson said.
Although Miami beat Florida State
way back on Oct. 7, it wasn't until
today that the Hurricanes finally
overtook Florida State in the

prised if fortunes are reversed next
