Bo: Don't pay new
coach more thanCarr
Former Michigan football coach and
athletic director Bo Schembechler
added his own two cents recently about
a new basketball coach --- which did-
n't seem to rub Rick Pitino the right
way when speaking about his contacts
with Michigan,
Schembechler said that Michigan
shouldn't pay the new basketball coach
more than Carr, who signed a six-year,
6.1 million contract last summer.
"I have two words for you - never
happen," Schembechler told The
Detroit News. "It will never happen
here. What do you think this thing was
built on? Everybody should know that.
"Not that Lloyd Carr (cares) about
money, but (paying a basketball coach
more) would be a colossal mistake."
There have been reports that Pitino
will decide soon on the position at
Louisville, but he said that talks are
still preliminary.
"Then the first thing Bo
Schembechler is worried about is what
somebody is going to be paid. If you're
a program guy, it shouldn't be about
football or basketball. It should be
about what's best for the whole athlet-
ic program. "Fortunately, I don't think
he speaks for the university. But I was
shocked that he started talking about
money when we haven't even begun to
have real discussions there."

Baseball wins last
two against McNeese
Michigan's baseball team travelled to
Lawrence, Kansas this weekend.
On Saturday the Wolverines played
two games that ended with identical 8-2

scores. Michigan was on the downside of
a decision against Illinois-Chicago but
was on the winning end of the game
against the host Jayhawks. On Sunday,
Kansas returned the favor, grabbing a
win in the last half-inning.
In the win over Kansas on Saturday,
sophomore 3B Brock Koman put on
Michigan's best offensive periformance
of the weekend. He had a pair of doubles,
a homerun and five RBI's.

Water polo beats
Michigan State 9-2
The No. 13 Michigan water polo team
wanted to use its two-week break to get
back to the basics. Friday night, in an
exhibition match against Michigan State,
the Wolverines took full advantage of
their opportunity to use what they learned
on their West Coast trip, bullying the
Spartans 9-2.
Michigan State, a team with club sta-
tus, was no match for the Wolverines, who
are considered one ofthe best teams in the
Eastern Conference. Michigan was led
by freshmen Julie Nisbet and Chelsea
Kay, who both finished with hat tricks.

Michigan improves to
.500 on the season
The 21st-ranked Michigan
Softball team reached the .500 barri-
er this weekend, improving its
record to 9-9.
The Wolverines lost the first
game, 1-0 to Massachusetts but
salvaged the day Friday with a 3-0
win against the Terrapins of
Maryland.
On Saturday, Michigan went 2-1,
with victories over Troy State (2-1)
and lowa State (2-0) before losing 5-
0 to Nebraska.

Rugby is the second-most popular
sport in the world. Yet how many peo-
ple in the U.S. actually understand the
sport that has spread to nearly every
country'?
It may be hard for the common
sports fan to grasp the concept of
rugby, since rugby players have their
own interpretation of the sport. "I
think rugby moves like hockey, with-
out the line changes," said Tom
Stulburg, coach of the Michigan
rugby club team.
Generally, rugby is considered a
combination of soccer and football. A
game is divided into two 40-minute
halves and once a player leaves the
game, they are not permitted to re-
enter. Like football, players tackle the
opposition and carry the ball with
their hands.
Chris Mancuso, who recently
joined the team said, "rugby is great,
it reminds me of horse racing minus
the little guys."
To some sports fans who have wit-
nessed rugby on television, the sport
looks more like a battle scene from
Braveheart than a competitive event.
At first glance, with players on the
team with nicknames such as
"Dogger" and "Snaggletooth," the
Michigan rugby club team fits that
view.
On the contrary, though, the sport
of rugby contains such civil traditions
as shaking hands after each game and
the third half --- a post-party celebra-
Getighokke

tion between both teams.
"Rugby is not like other sports
where you have rivalries and hate the
other team," assistant captain Andrew
Marcus said. "We can hate the other
team and try to kill them for 80 min-
utes, but after the game we are arm-
and-arm, hanging out together."
On Tuesday night this past week,
the theme of the practice consisted of
preparing a local men's team for an
upcoming tournament - returning
the favor for helping the club team
prepare for a trip to England over
spring break.
The club team consists of two
teams, an "A" team and a "B" team.
The "A" team features the more expe-
rienced players while the "3" team is
made up of players new to the game.
"The vast majority of the people
who come to play have never seen a
rugby match before they step onto the
field," captain Mike Livanos said.
Numerous members of the team
participated in a wide range of sports
before rugby, including golf, soccer
wrestling and football.
"Our team's philosophy is that who-
ever shows up to learn practice will
play on Saturday. It is quite common
for someone to attend only two or
three practices and then play in their
first match," he said.
The traditional way for students to
join the club team has been to show
tp at practice. As long as a player
commits himself to showing up to
practice, the team will commit itself
to allowing him to participate in
games.
Virg
Vick's name
White said nothing should actually have
the name Michael Vick printed on it yet.
"I heard of people who had jersey's
and wanted to print Vick on the back,
but think we caught them before it hap-
pencd,' White said.
White said the deal is only contracted
until Sept. . .
"Virginia Tech fans better grab (these
products) fast, because they won't be
here fair long," he said.
This is the second joint venture for
'ech and Octagon. In 1999, they pro-
duced Toasties, the first private label
cereal that had an exclusive license with
a university or college and marked
Tlech's first undefeated regular season.
Students seem to like the idea of pur-
chasing Vick products, largely because
of Vick's contribution to the school.
"I think it's great (Vick) is giving
Virginia Tech a chance to capitalize on
his success," said Matt I lughes, a junior
management science major. "I am sure
the money will benefit many people."
"I think it's great that Virginia Tech is
getting the chance use Michael Vick's
name," said Liz Aitken, a sophomore
university studies major. "Our student
body is so proud of him and now we can
show it. His name on the clothes we
make will only bring more positive
attention to the school."

Woods breaks slump,
wins Bay Hill Invite
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- No
more talk about a slump, just more
stories about the amazinB feats of
Tiger Woods.
Erratic with his driver to the verv
end. Woods recovered with two bril-
liant shots that set up birdies, includ-
ing a 15-footer on the final hole to
beat hard-charging Phil Mickelson
by one stroke and win the Bay Hill
Invitational yesterday.
"It's always nice to win," Woods
said. "It was not a pretty round of"
golf, but I got the ball in the hole. t
was able to get some wonderful
breaks down the stretch."
Woods closed with a 3-under 69
and became only the second player
to repeat as Bay Hill champion.
More importantly, it was his first
victory of the year in seven tourna-
ments, the longest he ever has gone
without winning to start a season.
Agassi and Sampras
meet in finals -- again
INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (AI') -
Heading into his 30th match
against Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi
called it a memory waiting to hap-
pen.
Their Tennis Masters Series final
was memorable for himin, forgettable
for Sampras.
Agassi, his accurate ground-
strokes far more efficient than
Sampras' serve-and-voley game,
took a 7-6 (7-5), 7-5, 6-1 victory
for his first title in 13 trips to
Indian Wells.
After more than a decade o;'
being half of one of tennis' finest
rivalries, Agassi still relishes the
chance to play Sampras. Of course,
beating him makes it even better.
lt's incredible. I've been on the
other end of it so many times with
Pete. It's more enjoyable at this.

him and actually to ;lay weCand

30 one year older than Sampras.

this week, and especialiv today.
fee's wonderful."
Sampras had beaten Aga.Nsi In
the 1995 final for the second of his
two titles at th desert event.
Sampras said his rival is at least
as good as eve,.
"1c's playing great, nt missing

like he was a number of years ago,
when he was No. I in the world"
said Sampras, who still holds a 1*

including an 8-( mark in f;nas.

Tech clicenses
BLACKSBURG, Va. (U-WIRE) -
Michael Vick fans will finally be able to
purchase jerseys and other products
with his name, or likeness.
The Virginia Tech Licensin
D~epartment, Octagon (the conmpamny
representing Vick) and Vick have
teamed up and announced companies
that have a license with Tech use Vick's
likeness on licensed products, said
Patrick McGee, vice president of athlete
marketing at Octagon.
Fifteen percent of the money from the
will come back to Tech and go toward
27 minority scholarships and three
recently developed graduate fellow-
ships, Locke White, director of licens-
ing and trademark for Tech.
"Normally something like this is just
too labor-intensive for professional ath-
letes," McGee said.
McGee said when athletes turn pro-
fessional they tend to avoid dealing
smaller licensing deals.
"We knew that Michael wanted to do
something for'Tech because the relation-
ship was there," McGee said.
Now, any of the 400-500 companies
that a license with Tech can use Vick's
likeness on their products.
"It's really whether or not (the com-
pany) thinks the product will sell,"
McGee said. "We're waiting to see who
wants to do this and just how successful
it is."
White said the first step is for
licensed companies to come to Tech
with product concepts. Once an idea is
approved, the company will send a roy-
alty advance check of' X500J, which will
go straight to the scholarship fund. Then
the company will submit the final art-
work for approval by Tech and Vick.
After this, the final product will be
available for purchase.
"Based on the response so far, I think
this is going to be extremely successful,"
White said.
While many people may have already
seen Vick products floating, around,
