Football Saturday 2001
Year in, year out, Football Saturdays typify what makes Ann Arbor special.
That feeling of excitement as the game approaches; that smell of bratwursts cooking at every other tailgate; that mass
of students, alumni and fans that make Hoover Street impassible by car; that overbearing ecstacy of a late-game drive by
the Maize and Blue to lock up the win; that unending grief that results from a last-second Purdue field goal to win the
game - Fall Saturdays stop life in the town and focus all eyes on Michigan Stadium.
Six or seven Saturdays each year last for 52 weeks. When that last game ends and Michigan Stadium closes its doors
for another season, fans get ready - be it 38 or two weeks away - for another chance to sit in the bleachers, to feel the
mammoth structure shake, to pump their fists in the air and shout, at the top of their lungs but a volume inaudible, "Hail!
to the Victors, valiant!"
This year, like in years past, The Michigan Daily will bring you all that there is to know and all that you want to know
about Michigan football. We'll take you to Seattle, to State College, to Iowa City, East Lansing and Madison. And if you
can't be there yourself, we'll be in Michigan Stadium, feeling the excitement, smelling the tailgates and tying up Hoover
Street. And when the day is done, and Football Saturday turns into your average Sunday, we'll be telling you all about it.

The marching band exemplifies the winning spirit of Michigan football.
2001 MICHIGAN ROSTEI

Enjoy.

NAVARRE
Continued from Page 3C
Navarre played reasonably well,
completing 19-of-32 passes for 205
yards as Michigan toppled Miami
(Ohio), 31-13. But, since it was the
first game of the season, Michigan
coach Lloyd Carr was hesitant to offer
any resounding judgmeits on his quar-
terback's performance.
"I thought Navarre did a good job in
the pocket," Carr said. "I thought his
pocket presence was better, but we've
FILE PHOTO got a long way to go."
Navarre's switch from understudy to
starter is accompanied by a tremen-
R dous amount of pressure. Although
current backup Spencer Brinton has
8 Fr some game experience from his time at
0 Sr San Diego State, it has a been a few
0 Fr years since he played Division I foot-
2 Jr ball. Third-stringer Jermaine Gonzales
3 Fr has virtually no game experience.
5 Fr Brinton and Gonzales each only
2 Jr received one snap in last Saturday's tilt.
2 Fr Clearly, the onus is on Navarre to play
5 Sr consistent, error-free football for a
8 Fr team with Big Ten championship aspi-
9 Sr rations.
7 Sr "I think I did an okay job getting in
8 Jr there and keeping the team going,"
9 So Navarre said after the Miami game.
9 Fr "But, I've got some things to work on.
8 Jr There's some reads I missed, but that's
9 So expected for the first game. I've just
9 Sr got to go back, look at the film, and get
4 Fr them corrected."
0 Fr With so much seemingly stacked
6 Sr against him, it's important to remember

JESSICA JOINSN/Daily
John Navarre has a lot of pressure on
him as he steps in for Drew Henson.
last year. Navarre started four games
while Henson was recuperating from
an injury. Two of those contests -
games against UCLA and Illinois -
were on the road in hostile environ-
ments.
The lessons learned from those starts
can only help Navarre as the
Wolverines head to Seattle this week-
end to take on defending Pac-10 cham-
pion Huskies, whose home field has
been dubbed "The House of Pain."
"There's going to be some ups and
downs," Carr said. "I've always said
that experience is hard to get without
suffering."

Fresh input: Six newcome

While Michigan lost more talent
than any other school last year, it
replaced a lot of it with this year's
recruiting class, bringing in another
top-five class.
Incoming recruits rarely make seri-
ous contributions, watch for these six
to possibly get some time this year and
develop into stars in upcoming sea-
sons.
Spencer Brinton: Brinton was the
final piece of Michigan's blockbuster
trade with San Diego State, a deal that
netted the Aztecs Steve Fisher and
Brandon Smith in exchange for
Brinton and two conditional draft
picks.
Because Brinton served on a
Mormon mission in South Africa last
year, he never got to see Michigan or
the other schools he considered trans-
ferring to: Oklahoma, Arkansas,
Mississippi and Arizona. For Brinton,
a 30-minute conversation with
Michigan's coaching staff was all he
needed.
"In some ways he reminds me of
Tom Brady," head coach Lloyd Carr
said. "He's a left hander but he's got .a
very good release, he's smooth and I
know he's smart.
Markus Curry: Curry, brother of
junior strong safety Julius, played
strong safety against Miami (Ohio)

and will return punts as the season pro-
gresses.
Markus thought he was going to
play for Michigan last year, but the
University didn't admit him. Instead,
he attended Valley Forge (Penn.) Prep
School. Curry enrolled in January.
"I think going to prep school was a
tremendous experience for him," Carr
said. "He's got everything you want:
he's smart, he's tough, he's bigger than
he appears to be, and he's going to get
better and better."
Curry was rated the nation's 18th
best prospect by Super Prep Magazine.
Braylon Edwards: Edwards will
battle Tyrece Butler and Tim
Massaquoi for the No. 3 starting
receiver spot.
The 6-foot-3, 200 pound Edwards,
who hauled in two passes for 22 yards
late in Saturday's win, will provide a
big target for Navarre.
As long as senior Marquise Walker
and junior Ronald Bellamy stay
healthy, Edwards will receive limited
playing time, but if either gets hurt,
expect Edwards to play more.
Marlin Jackson:. Jackson was one
of four blue-chip prospects Carr stole
from Pennsylvania.
Jackson saw a fair amount of play-
ing time and finished with five tackles
Saturday. He'll see most of his time in
the dime package. Like Curry, Jackson
will get a chance at returning punts.
Ernest Shazor: At 6-foot-4, 212
