'M' proving it

The Michigan men's soccer team has improved its
record every season since gaining varsity status three
years ago, ending with last year's team nearly win-
ning the championship game in the Big Ten confer-
The trend seems to be continu-
ing this season, as the team cur-
rently holds a 2-0-1 record after
their first three games, including
wins over No. 22 Loyola-Mary-
mount and Xavier and a tie with
No. 12 Notre Dame.
Last year's schedule pitted the Wolverines against
similarly ranked teams Akron, UC-Santa Barbara
and No. 10 Notre Dame. But the team only tri-
umphed over Akron, leaving it with a 1-2-0 record
after the first three games.
After this Sunday's win against Loyola-Mary-
mount, junior goalkeeper Peter Dzubey commented
on how crucial it is to start the season so successfully.
"From the beginning of the season we had our
minds set on this one game," Dzubey said, "Last year
we came out and got smacked our first game 5-3 (by
UC-Santa Barbara) - it was bad. So we just said, if
we could win this one, we can go at it and play each
game one at a time and set the tone for the season."
However, Michigan head coach Steve Burns has
more to be thankful for than just these three solid
games now under his belt. Burns, who has been with
the team since it became varsity, has the chance to
see his efforts for the past three seasons come full
circle. Seven seniors return this year who will have
been with the varsity program since its beginning.
Among those seniors are standout defenders Kevin
Taylor and Joe Iding, midfielder Mike White, and
forwards Kevin Robinson and Tom Gritter.

Turpin have emerged as early scoring leaders for the
Senior Kevin Robinson and the Michigan soccer team is off to a 2-0-1 start after wins over Loyola Marymount
and Xavier and a tie against Notre Dame last week.
ANN ARBOR (AP) - The step-
son of Michigan coaching legend
Bo Schembechler died in a weekend
car crash in Idaho, officials say.
The body of Donald Schembech-
ler, 48, was discovered Monday not
far from his home in a rural area
just outside of Orofino, Idaho, said
Rick Ohnsman, public information
officer for the Idaho State Police.
"From what we can tell, the acci-
dent may have happened as early as
Saturday morning," Ohnsman said.
It appeared that the vehicle
Schembechler was driving went off
a road overlooking the Clearwater
River and onto a grassy embank-
ment where it rolled over and
Schembechler was ejected, Ohns-
man said. The vehicle continued
down the embankment and rolled
off a cliff.
"Investigators are trying to deter-
mine now whether he died as a

Glenn "Bo" Schembechler's late
wife Mildred had three sons by an
earlier marriage - Donald, Geof-

had one son, Glenn IIL.

Michigan. His overall coaching
record in 27 years was 234-65-8.

team with two goals each after just three games.
Turpin was first to get his name on the scoreboard
when he notched one last week during an exhibition
game against No.12 Notre Dame.
"Mychal Turpin was our 'man of the match,"' said
Burns about Turpin's goal in the Notre Dame game,
"Mychal was dangerous right out of the gate in the
second half. He is a handful on the offensive side of
the ball, and he will play a big role in our season this
year. He times his runs so well that he will have
many scoring chances this year."
In Sunday's game against Loyola-Marymount,
Turpin was again the first Wolverine to score. He
slipped the ball in after sophomore Adam Bruh
kicked the ball from the corner to Cameron, who
then passed it to Turpin for the goal. Not even a
minute later, a role reversal happened when Turpin
assisted on a goal of Cameron's.
On Monday, Cameron caught up with Turpin and
raked in his second goal of the season when he
scored against Xavier.
But more than just the duo's coach and teammates
took note of their fancy footwork. Turpin was named
Big Ten Co-Offensive Player of the Week while
Cameron was put on College Soccer News' National
Team of the Week.

In the game against Loyola Marymount on Sun-
day, Michigan got off to a shaky start when it allowed
the Lions to take possession of the ball for large peri-
ods of time during the first half.
But after two quick goals at the beginning of the sec-
ond half, the Wolverines took the confidence away
from their opponents. Once Michigan had established
its lead, Loyola-Marymount only managed to take two
unsuccessful shots for the remainder of the second half.

Bryant's lawyers subpoenea medical records
DENVER (AP) - Kobe Bryant's
lawyers have subpoenaed a Colorado
hospital to see his accuser's medical
records - the first indication they
might make her mental health an issue
if the sexual assault case against the
NBA star goes to trial.
The subpoenas were disclosed in a
court filing by a Greeley hospital
where the 19-year-old accuser was
treated in February after police at the
University of Northern Colorado deter-
mined she was a "danger to herself."
Campus police have refused to say
whether the woman attempted suicide,
saying only that the hospitalization was
for a mental health issue.
Attorneys for the North Colorado
Medical Center and its psychiatric care
center asked a judge to quash the sub-
poenas and destroy the records already
sent to him, citing medical privacy
Medical center attorney Mike
McConnell said there are legal provi-
sions for giving medical records to
attorneys in criminal cases, and the
hospital wants to make sure it is taking
the required steps.
The woman's attorney has told the
hospital she has "explicitly not waived
her medical privilege," according to
Calls to the accuser's attorney and
Bryant's defense team were not
Bryant, 25, is charged with sexually
assaulting the 19-year-old Colorado
resort employee June 30. The Los
Angeles Lakers guard has said the sex
was consensual. An Oct. 9 hearing will
determine whether there will be a trial.
Information about the woman's
mental health might never be presented
to the jury if the case goes to trial, a
legal expert said.
"Whether that would be allowed
depends on whether there's anything
else there other than (attempted) sui-
cide, some other indication of mental
instability or something that would
point toward her being an unreliable
observer or witness," said Christopher
Mueller, a professor at the University
of Colorado law school.
Meanwhile, an Iowa college student
pleaded innocent in Denver federal
court Tuesday to making a death threat
against Bryant's accuser in a profanity-
laced telephone message last month.
