down and just measure around the stadium, but there are a lot
of people who don't go to the game, but are in the city
because of the game."
In early October, Verizon Wireless increased the capac-
ity of their network for the city of Ann Arbor by 30 per-
cent in anticipation of football season and the return of
college students to school.
"We always monitor our network to make sure it is operat-
ing the way it should," Gilbert said. "By increasing capacity
we have tried to insure that people's calls will go through on
the first attempt. Whenever there are a lot of people making
calls at the same time - like the stadium environment - the
chances of not making a call on the first attempt may
increase," Gilbert said. "The network is designed, however, to
move with traffic and we have not received any complaints
from people unable to use their phones or make their calls go
through on the first attempt."
LSA junior Pamela Thomas said she uses her cell phone
each game day.
"I take my phone with me and someone calls me at least
once a game," Thomas said. "The reception is fine; the noise
is the only problem."
Not only does cell phone use increase on Football Sat-
urdays, but the hours during and after the game are often
the busiest of the week. The busiest hour of last week was
3 p.m. Saturday, while the busiest hour two weeks ago
was 7 p.m. Oct. 12.
"The busiest hour for cell phone use depends on the game,"
Gilbert said. "When games are sudden death like they were
against Washington and Penn State, the busiest hour begins
immediately after the game. For other games, halftime is the
busiest hour of the day.
"Cell phone use is higher when we win than it is when we
lose;" Gilbert said. "When we lose, people just don't feel like
talking as much. Call volume was 17 percent higher for the
Penn State game than it was for the Iowa game last weekend."
Gilbert said, "We assume that text messaging also increases
on Football Saturdays because all traffic on the network goes
up. But we don't monitor text messaging separate from phone
calls. We just monitor overall cell phone use."
Football Saturdays are not the only athletic events that
increase cell phone use in Ann Arbor.
"When the Michigan basketball season begins, we will see
increased cell phone use around Crisler (Arena) as well,"
Gilbert said. "Sporting events in general - Michigan foot-
ball, basketball and the NHL Stanley Cup series all increase
cell phone use."
LSA sophomore Amy Greenfield said she uses her phone
to speak with friends during the game.
"This year I sit with all of my friends, so I don't use it as
often as I did last year when I used it each game," Greenfield
said. "I still use it though and I have never had any trouble
with the reception. In fact, I get better reception at the game
than I do in my apartment."
LSA senior Johanna Wetmore doesn't attend football
games this season, but does use her cell phone during
"I don't go to the games this year and I don't use my cell
phone any more than I usually do when they are on TV' Wet-
more said. "I don't have any trouble using it when I do call
during games either."

Last semester, DPS issued 14
crime alerts, 10 of which were for
incidents of home invasion. In Feb-
ruary, DPS locked residence hall
doors 24-hours a day and imple-
mented other security initiatives in
order to cut down on crime.
Crime in the residence halls con-
tinued into the semester, prompting
DPS to investigate further measures
to make students feel safe. At the
June meeting of the University
Board of Regents, DPS presented
proposals to install archival video
cameras at all entrances of resi-
dence halls and install automatic
door locks over the next two years.
At the time, Ian Steinman noted the
importance of making students feel safe,
while at the same time, not trying to
intrude on their privacy.
"We're trying to balance the appropri-
ate level of security with culture and the
community," Steinman said.
Students in West Quad felt divided
as to how effective the new measures
"I feel safe but I do realize people let
unknown people into the building all the
time," LSA sophomore Kyle Stock said.
"Automatic door locks will probably just
lock more people out."
LSA freshman Marques Streety said
he believes that as long as students are
more cautious about their surroundings,
crime will drop and the new measures

weekend caused some concern, but
the Athletic Department said the
phenomenon was only weather-
"The clouds were so low that the
planes were restricted from flying,"
Executive Associate Athletic Director
Mike Stevenson said. "With good

Students said they are preparing for
the game in various ways. LSA senior
Erin Bonnivier said she plans to stay
home to tailgate.
"My friend and I sold our tickets
and invited some friends from home.
We're going to watch it on TV
because the view is better than our
seats," she said.
Gress said he is definitely going to
the game, and will get up at 8 a.m. to
prepare for it.
His house on South State Street pre-
parties for every game, but has planned
a few specialties for Saturday's.
"We will have a couple kegs and
will heckle State fans as they go by."
For fans passing by, Gress added
that they also carved an obscene, anti-
