regain his confidence quickly.

SPECIAL TEAMS: What will Philip
Brabbs do this week? Michigan coach
Lloyd Carr has shown he'll do just about
anything except kick a field goal. Pur-
due is having similar problems, as kicker
Berin Lacevic is just 3 of 8. Purdue has
one punt-returning touchdown, which
came from receiver Anthony Chambers.
Chambers gives Purdue the advantage
over a Michigan special teams unit that
has been anything but special.

Edge: Purdue
INTANGIBLES: Purdue, at 3-4, is playing
for the right to go to a bowl game. The
Boilermakers are desperate for a win,
and nothing would give them more sat-
isfaction than giving their fans a chance
to rush the field for the second straight
time against Michigan. But Carr is 0-2
in Ross Ade Stadium, which means he'll
pull out all the stops to get it done.
Edge: Michigan.

MICHIGAN 13
PUR DUE 22
Before every football game this sea-
son, two of the Daily football writers
will take the weekend's matchup to
the Playstation 2.
For this week's matchup, coach
Jeff Phillips led the Wolverines and

David Horn coached the Boilermak-
ers.
Play of the game - Down 13-7 late in
the fourth quarter, Purdue WR No. 82
makes a spectacular catch in traffic
and rumbles 88 yards to put the Boiler-
makers ahead by a point. QB No. 18
showed great awareness, taking
advantage of an offsides by opening
the field up. Coach Phillips, confident
in his offense's ability to answer,
instructed his defensive backs to pull
off WR No. 82. As for the offense? No
answer.
Most unrealistic play of the game -
Michigan K No. 34 was perfect,
stroking two field goals beautifully
through the pipes in such a close
game. He was fixing to take home the
game ball before coach Phillips col-
lapsed emotionally and Purdue
stormed back.

Player of the game - Coach Horn
gave the gameball to RB No. 3, whose
productivity on the ground (normally a
weak link in a Horn-coached offense)
kept coach Phillips on his toes, and
opened up the pass.

PRESS ("()NFERENCE
QUOTES:
Michigan head coach Jeff Philips: While

I'm disappointed at the final score of the
game, I was glad in that the rivalry
between coach Horn and I can finally be
restored ...
I did not appreciate coach Horn's refusal
to score when allowed to with a ,minute
left. Especially after he punched it in
after running the clock down to the final
second ...
I would say that QB No. 16 was well on
his way to MVP of the game before he
threw his first quarter interception and
eight consecutive incompletions. His final
pick didn't help his cause either.
Purdue head coach David Hom: This is
huge for the Horn legacy. We've
resparked a rivalry that was extinguished
after the Illinois fiasco of late September,
in which Coach Phillips handled me like
the friggin UPS guy. But now ... NOW
we're back. This is like the AFC finally
beating the NFC; the Road Runner getting
duped by Wild. E. Coyote; the BoSox tak-
ing down the Yanks ...
Coach Phillips' bravado has finally got-
ten in the way of his coaching abili-
ties. I'm not the type of guy who
would tell a beloved coach to hang up
his spikes, but ...
I was on no sleep ... NO sleep. Yes-
terday's history midterm left me
bleary-eyed and disoriented. But when
you've got athletes like QB No. 18
and CB No. 12, well, the players
coach themselves.

support and rally came from their
sidelines, regardless of the cold
weather and rainy conditions.
"We had trouble keeping pos-
session and sliding it through to
the strikers," senior Carly
Williamson said. "We just have to
come out focused and hard for our
next game."
This upbeat outlook will keep the
Wolverines ready for their next
game, when they face Northwestern
in Evanston on Sunday. Michigan
must win the rest of its conference
games - and get some help from
Penn State - in order for the
Wolverines to secure the Big Ten
regular season title.
