'IT WAS NOT MEANT FOR US TO LOSE.
Saturday night thriller

With just under nine minutes left on
Saturday, the Big House was as quiet as
it has been in years. DeAndra Cobb's
64-yard touchdown run gave Michi-
gan State a seemingly insurmountable
27-10 lead. But the Wolverines weren't
quite ready to fold in the 97th meeting
with their in-state rival.
"One ofthe things that we always talk
about around here (is) the things that it
takes to be a championship team," Mich-
igan coach Lloyd Carr said. "There's a
lot of things you have to be able to do:
You have to continue to believe in your-
self when things look bleak."
True freshman quarterback Chad
Henne, who finished 24-of-35 for 273
yards and a career-high four touch-
downs, adhered to Carr's demands for
optimism: "We were sitting on the side-
line and everybody was down, and I
was thinking in my head, 'There's still
And following an unbelievable finish
to regulation, three Braylon Edwards
touchdowns and three overtime periods,
the Wolverines had completed one ofthe
most improbable wins in school history,
"This is the greatest game I've ever
played in," senior cornerback Marlin
Jackson said. "The feeling is unex-
plainable. It's one of the greatest victo-
ries I've ever been a part of, and maybe
one of the greatest ever at the Univer-
sity of Michigan."
Michigan moved from 12th to 10th
in the Associated Press rankings and
remained unbeaten in the Big Ten.
Michigan (6-0 Big Ten, 8-1 overall)
began on the comeback trail in its drive
following Cobb's touchdown. The Wol-
verines put together a nine-play, 86-yard
drive that ended with a 24-yard Garrett
Rivas field goal with 6:27 left to bring
Michigan within 14. The drive was
fueled by a 46-yard bomb to Edwards;
who had struggled in the game's first

Amid the excitement of Saturday's football game
against Michigan State, students might have noticed
- or participated in - some of the rowdiest behavior
ever at the Big House.
Police say 21 arrests were made in Michigan Sta-
dium during the game - the largest number of arrests
at a football game in the Department of Public Safety's
records. Prior to Saturday, the most arrests at a football
game were 11 at the game against Notre Dame in Sep-
Sixteen of the arrests at Saturday's game were given
to minors in possession of alcohol, while one was for
possession of marijuana and four for assault.
Most of the arrests involved students. Seven of the
arrests were for University students - six for MIP and
one for assault. Three Michigan State students were
arrested, all for MIP. Four other students arrested were
from Western Michigan and Eastern Michiganuniversi-
DPS spokeswoman Diane Brown said the arrests
were mostly alcohol-related.
"The assaults were drunk people beating up on each
other," Brown said.
Brown said the problems occurred mostly before the
game and during the first half. She attributed the high
levels of drinking to the later time of the game.
"It was a 3:30 game and people get up and start drink-
ing first thing in the morning," Brown said.
Some students witnessed first hand the unruly behav-
ior that DPS tried to combat at Saturday's game.
"There was a girl behind me. She and her friends
were trying to weasel in between my friends and I.
She had seats five (rows) behind," LSA senior Chris

In light of the highest predicted voter
turnout in decades, University students
and staff alike are rearranging their
schedules to fit in time to vote. Projections
for voter turnouts across the country are
expected to be higher than during the last
two presidential elections, according to a
poll released yesterday by Pew Research
Center, a nonpartisan Washington-based
But whereas the University has encour-
aged staff supervisors to accomodate
University employees who need to get to
the polls, students will have to fit voting in
between classes or consult their professors
on an individual basis if they want to skip
class to go vote.
As is customary before important
elections, University President Mary Sue
Coleman sent out an e-mail to the cam-
pus community on Thursday, urging voter
participation and reiterating the impor-
tance of voting in tomorrow's decision.
"Local election clerks are suggesting
that voters attempt to get to the polls as
early as possible to avoid expected long

FLINT - With the wind blowing so
hard outside that walking had become dif-
ficult, Bob Reams spent the day inside at
Halo Burger in downtown Flint, watching
ESPN's SportsCenter and sipping a drink he
He ate the granola barhe had brought
with him. He said he would like to be eating
the No. 1 combo, but unemployment doesn't
allow him to buy things that he doesn't real-
ly need. Even worse is the fact that one of
the unemployment offices Reams used to go
to regularly has recently closed down.
"I go to the other unemployment office in
the city all the time, but they always say their
computers have broken down," he said.

TOLEDO, Ohio - With the presidential
election just one day away and the race in
Ohio as close as ever, grassroots organiza-
tions are working right up until the closing
bell to maximize voter turnout in the north-
west part of the state.
In Toledo suburbs, Democrats and Repub-
licans are busy making thousands of phone
calls to known partisans, extracting pledges
of support on Election Day, informing resi-
dents of their polling locations and offering
rides to the polls.
Both campaigns say the turnout of their
party bases in Ohio - a critical swing state
with 20 electoral votes - could be the
deciding factor in the presidential election.
