A LTERNA TIVES

Overstudied, tired and sleepless.
The bright red lights of my bedside
alarm clock read 5:45 a.m. Ahhhh
yes. Four more hours until I would
have to lift my aching bones and pre-
pare for my day. These are many stu-
dents' favorite hours, the few
moments to relax and be unconscious.
Like most of the school's population,
my days don't start before 9 a.m. So
today I go back to sleep. But yester-
day, I was up and at it at 5:45 a.m. For
a day, I had crossed the line of nor-
malcy, living the life of a collegiate
wrestler.
Just Showing Up
The sun had not yet risen as I ner-
vously approached the locked press
entrance to Crisler. Slowly more and
more figures emerged from the dark-
ness, most wearing leather varsity
jackets and sweatshirts. There is no
need to dress pretty at this hour.
I'd been waiting at the door to
Crisler Arena for hardly a minute
when the team's fearless leader, head
coach Joe McFarland, energetically
hopped out of his maroon Ford
Explorer sipping a medium sized cup
of coffee.
"So we got a reporter wrestling
with us today," McFarland yelled
across the parking lot.
Unlike his weary wrestlers,
McFarland appeared largely unaffect-

By Job Singer
Daily Sports Writer

Daily sports writer takes to the mat with

ed by the early hour. An incredible
work ethic is one of the traits that
make him the right man for the job.
Dale Bahr, a current assistant athletic
director and a former Michigan coach,
praised McFarland's dedication.
"Joe is a 24-hour coach," Bahr said.
Though I am still a little sleepy,
McFarland's energy inspires me. This
kind of a gung-ho attitude does not
immediately spread to his tired ath-
letes. We lackadaisically enter the
arena and proceed to the locker
rooms.
After changing quickly, I am one of
the first people to enter the practice
room; McFarland is ready with more
colorful remarks.
"So who do you want to work with
today, Jeb?" he asked. "Olson,
Hrovat, who?"
Otto Olson is the No. 2-ranked 174-
pounder in the nation. Andy Hrovat is
an All-American currently ranked
eighth at 184 pounds.
To which I reply, "Nah, give me
Brink."
That would be All-American
heavyweight Matt Brink.
"Oh you want Truck?" McFarland
said, alluding to Brink's nickname.
At this point, most of the 30 mem-
bers of the wrestling team start to
enter the room and our dialogue ceas-
es.
