he's too tired to go out and kick.
With 7:21 left in the game, Carr
puts the starters back in, realizing
that the bench players were getting
fatigued after 30 minutes of play.
John Navarre leads the team 63 yards
to the Duke 1-yard line in just two
plays. He downs the ball three times
before Brabbs kicks the field goal.
Duke reaches new levels of futility
when Carr sends out just Brabbs for
the kickoff, which Duke receives at
the 14-yard line. With just one man
to beat, Duke's kick returner, junior
Chris Douglas, trips on the 50-yard
Carr chooses 11 fans from the
front row to play defense, and the
Blue Devils put together a nice 45-
yard drive. But the Duke offense
stalls and misses its field goal -
Michigan takes over with :38 remain-
Not wanting to run up the score,
the Wolverines down the ball twice
before calling their last timeout.
Oddly, Carr sends Adam Finley out
to attempt a punt on third down, with
only three seconds left.
Tragedy strikes when the snap is
high, but Finley makes a lunging
grab to stop the ball from going out
of the endzone. He sets himself,
looks around, starts running in circles
around the endzone, looks over to see
what Carr wants him to do, spots
Amaker and decides to down the
ball. Safety!
Michigan wins 34-2.
Put that up your pipe and smoke it,
Cameron Crazies!
Jon Schwartz is ready and willing
to take on the position of Michigan's
offensive coordinator. Ifyou're look-
ing for his resume or credentials, he

Depleted roster battles Team USA

After the Super Bowl-like atmosphere
that surrounded this weekend's record-set-
ting outdoor game against Michigan State,
the Michigan hockey team
will return to action tonight
in an exhibition game against YOST IC

"It'll be good to play thisexhibition

had. It's going to be a big game for them"
Although Michigan does have several
potential recruits on this year's Under- 18
Team, none of the them have received any
official offers from the Wolverines.
"We recruit from this program, but I
can't tell you that we have had a big
advantage," Michigan coach Red Beren-
son said. "Did coming here play a role in
getting those players to come here? I hope

it did."
But make no mistake, these high
schoolers will not just roll over for Michi-
gan. This is one of the biggest games of
their season. Last year the Under-18 Team
defeated Michigan State - an eventual
Frozen Four team - 6-4.

But he will not be alone. He will be

Woodford is the only player who
Berenson doesn't expect to have for the
weekend games in Omaha.
Senior goaltender Kevin O'Malley will
get a rare start tonight for Michigan, giv-
ing goalie Josh Blackburn a valuable rest.
DELAYED SCORE: A scoring change cred-

ited Ryznar with an additional assist in
the game against Michigan State this
weekend, bringing his total to three points
on a goal and two assists.
The puck that Ryznar sent past the
Spartans' goalie, Ryan Miller, has been
sent to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toron-
to, Canada. He was given another one to
take home.
SENT DOWN: The NHL season began just
a few days ago, and 15 former Wolverines
can be counted on pro rosters. But one big
name is missing: Andy Hilbert.
Hilbert left Michigan last year after a
stellar sophomore campaign, in which he
led the Wolverines in points and was a
finalist for the Hobey Baker Award.
After he had been assured that he was
penciled into the team's lineup, Hilbert
signed with the Boston Bruins this sum-
mer. Last week, the Bruins sent him down
to their minor league affiliate in Provi-
"I was reluctant to accept (that his spot
was secure) when I first heard it," Beren-
son said. "It isn't necessarily true. They
have had him penciled in, but this is the
difference between pen and pencil. You
can erase a pencil, and that is obviously
what happened."

Michigan's Dwight Heiminen (10) will be facing his former team
tonight when the U.S. Under-18 Development Team visits Ann Arbor.

Iowa competes for title with healthy Recker

By David Horn
Daily Sports Writer

The Cinderella of last year's Big Ten
Tournament has becq ne the darling of
this year's national media. The Iowa
Hawkeyes, who ended last season with
the No. 24 ranking in the AP poll,
return as a possible spoiler for Illinois
or Michigan State - which are favored
by most preseason publications.

Last year the Illini and Spartans
reigned supreme atop the uncharacteris-
tically top-heavy conference during the
regular season, but fell during the Big
Ten Tournament. The Hawkeyes won
four games during the four days, there-
by earning themselves a spot in the
NCAA tournament. Its late run cata-
pulted Iowa into recognition, and this
year expectations are higher, as the
Hawkeyes are ranked as high as 12th in

As the college basketball season approaches,
the Daily basketball writers will give you the
, inside scoop on every Big Ten team as they
count down the days until they release their spe- CONFERENCE
cial section "Tipoff" in November.

This exceptional Summer Study Abroad program in Tibet provides a
comprehensive nine-week, six credit program for the study of Tibetan language,
history and culture, run entirely in Tibet. It combines two weeks in Tibet's capital
Lhasa and neighboring urban areas, three weeks in various rural areas on the
high plateau of Central Tibet (the Tibetan Autonomous Region), and three weeks

some polls.
But last season was not all pumpkin
carriages and glass slippers. A mid-sea-
son injury to star guard Luke Recker
sent Iowa careening - seven losses in
its final eight regular season games -
before the Big Ten Tournament. Reck-
er's knee injury is still a point of con-
cern for the Hawkeyes. A healthy
Recker (who averaged 18.1 points per
game and 2.7 assists per game) would
likely allow Iowa to hang with the big
boys during the regular season. Without
him, the Hawkeyes will be a long-shot
to make the NCAA Tournament.
Third-year head coach Steve Alford
is quick to dispel the rumor that Recker
will not be ready until January. He is
counting on his scoring machine to be
back for the whole season.
"Luke is one player who is highly
motivated," Alford said. "He saw what
he could do last season, on one leg. He

was starting to get the national attention
when he was injured. He's a very spe-
cial shooting guard who has great lead-
ership qualities."
Recker, if indeed healthy, will have
to shoulder the burden of the backcourt
without the help of departed guard.
Dean Oliver, who will play for the
Golden State Warriors this winter.
Oliver averaged 14.9 points per game
and 4.8 assists per game last season.
Attempting to fill the shoes of Oliver
will be senior Ryan Hogan. Hogan saw
21 minutes per game off the bench last
Regardless of who is running the
show at guard, Iowa will need to find a
way to get the ball to forward Reggie
Evans. He averaged 15.1 points per
game and 11.9 rebounds per game,
leading the nation in the latter category,
as well as in double-doubles. He heads
a strong, though underrated, frontcourt

that includes sophomores Glen Worley
and Jared Reiner. Alford hopes the
youth movement up front will be the
beginning of a long-term foundation for
the Hawkeyes.
"We wanted to lay a solid foundation
and we've been able to do that with 23
wins and a tournament championship,"
Alford said. "To build on that we want
to have a top-20 program or better in
year three and stay there in the years
that follow."
Iowa needs Recker to become - and
remain - healthy, Hogan to be produc-
tive and Evans to remain the most
threatening big man in the conference.
If these intangibles become a reality,
