You did some good things Sat-
urday, but there were also some
bad things. On the plus side, it
looks like the wave was never
even attempted. How'd that hap-
pen? Were you actually watching
the game and just forgot"? And
the sight of all 110,000 going
crazy when Ecker reached the
endzone was simply amazing.
Another high note was the stand-
ing ovation for Edwards and
Henne when they nearly connected
on that long pass in the endzone.
But it left us wondering if the
student section would have done
the same if it had happened on its
side of the field. Our guess is no.
The crowd still showed up when
it mattered most, and we were
ready to give you a real good
grade (even though you let out
boos three times). But that came
to a end when a player told
us that Michigan barely has a
home-field advantage and needs
to make noise all four quarters.
So you've still got a way to go.

Coach & Four Barber Shop
While celebs, others slip
up, Filice makes a run
Finally! We were worried it'd never
happen, but it did. Coach & Four
Barber Shop's Jerry Erickson
hoped to keep the Ann Arbor
celebrities' impressive run going,
but struggled mightily. His pitiful
5-10 is the worst performance so
far this season. Maybe instead of
sharpening ice skates, he should
sharpen a pencil or two and do
Thanks to his second consecutive
strong week, Gennaro Filice has
suddenly taken a commanding
lead. Unfortunately, this now
means that the other three football
writers are being subjected to
a nonstop onslaught of collar-
popping by G' Thang.
Meanwhile, Chris Burke has
been crying since Gabe Watson
registered a sack, jumped up and
down for at least a minute, but
never pointed to the press box.
Gabe, come on. Nobody will notice.
Thanks for Florida's collapse
and Texas's ineptness, Sharad
Mattu did poorly for the first time
this week, and Bob Hunt is too
preoccupied with the upcoming
Daily/State News football game to
give a damn about his picks.

'DOGS BIT: After running over LSU
for 221 yards last week for a 45-
16 victory, Georgia was held to
56 yards on the ground as it lost
to No. 17 Tennessee 19-14. Ten-
nessee quarterback Erik Ainge
bounced back from a four-intercep-
tion performance last week against
Auburn, going 12-for-21 and
throwing two TDs and no intercep-
tions. This ended both Georgia's
undefeated season and its 17-game
home winning streak.
