outlays as compared to other projects.
Vice President for Government Affairs
Cynthia Wilbanks said these applications
are granted on a "sporadic" basis, where-
as in some other states capital outlays for
colleges are a part of the regular yearly
Wilbanks said that, despite the tight
financial situation, she believes this could
be a good year for getting state money for
construction projects. "We know the state's
budget is still relatively tight and it could be
challenging, but I think we're optimistic that
they might consider some type of outlay for
buildings in this next year," she said.
She added that budget discussions start
in February and that Gov. Jennifer Gran-
holm's State of the State speech is often
an early indication of whether an outlay
State Sen. Shirley Johnson, chair of the
joint Capital Outlays Committee, said the
state House has yet to name their commit-
tee members and that the first meeting will
hopefully occur by the end of February. She
said she was hopeful about the possibility of
an outlay this year. "As soon as we've got
things pulled together, we're going to move
on capital outlay," she said. "I promised
everybody that and I intend to move on that
U.S. Rep. Joe Schwarz, who served for
many years on the joint committee, said he
thinks "it's always time" for capital outlays,
but that term limits have made the political
environment trickier for outlays.
"In a term-limited legislature with num-
bers of legislators who aren't that famil-
iar with the process or may be reticent to
increase the state's indebtedness, (capital
outlays) are going to be a hard sell," he said.
"You don't have people who have been there
long enough - a majority of the people
don't have a very deep knowledge of our 15
Schwarz added that he thinks raising the
bond cap to provide outlays is good idea, and
that he believes debt is often wrongly per-
ceived as a bad thing by state legislators.
The last capital outlay occurred in the
1996-97 budget and included funding for
projects on all campuses. The University at
that time got money for the Haven Hall, LSA
Building, Perry Building and West Hall
projects. More recently, former Gov. John
Engler vetoed a request for $43 million to
carry out the School of Public Health reno-
vations in 2001.
University Provost Paul Courant said
the School of Public Health project
would have occurred four years ago had
the University been able to secure an
outlay. He also cited the Frieze Building
project as one that suffered from lack of
The joint committee typically looks at
many factors when considering outlay appli-
cations. Wilbanks said projects that con-
tribute to academic opportunities or might
not be funded through private donations get
The University can issue bonds indepen-
dently of the state, and plans to fund the
new North Quad residence and academic
complex through debt which will be paid
back using housing fees generated by the
new residence hail.

Michigan opened up the
game with a 7-0 run. Harris
scored Michigan's first four
points and Coleman added a
But the lead would not last
long. Michigan State clawed
back into the game on a 12-0
run the kept Michigan score-
less for over five minutes.
The Spartans never trailed
for the rest of the game.
Michigan would not score
again until after the second
During that span, the
Spartans' physical style of
play began to take its toll on
the Wolverines. Junior for-
ward Graham Brown picked
up two quick fouls, putting
Michigan's frontline at an
Hunter - available for
the first time since an ankle
injury forced him out of the
game at Iowa on Jan. 5 -
checked into the game and
was effective in his return.
He scored four points until
he pickeddhis second person-
al foul with 5:56 remaining
in the second half.
Davis - who was also
questionable prior to the
game with an ankle injury
- also scored four points in
the half. He finished with 12
When Hunter left, Michi-
gan State was poised to run-
away with the score, jumping
out to as much as a 26-18. But
in the last minute and a half,
Michigan cut the lead down
to four with four points from
sophomore Courtney Sims.
Junior guard Maurice
Ager closed out the half for
Michigan State with a drive
as the clock ran out, giving
Michigan State a 28-22 lead
Michigan will play its
fourth road game in five con-
tests on Sunday when they
square off against Purdue in
"We've got another tough
game Sunday, so we just
have to look forward to that
one now," Harris said.

fired at the end of the season.
7:22 p.m. The only play that Michigan real-
ly runs is the pick and alley-oop to Petway, and
since it didn't work this time, we're in trouble.
7:23 p.m. Michigan just gave up the lead,
10-7. Prepare for a blowout.
7:24 p.m. Man, President Palmer needs to
stop doing these Allstate commercials and
come back to "24."
7:29 p.m. Steve Lavin just said that Wohl
looks like Adam Sandler. Now they're show-
ing a picture of Chris Hill beside one of Pete
Sampras. What the hell is going on? When did
we start watching "E!"?
7:33 p.m. Lavin is breaking down Michi-
gan's offense. Wow, that's a feat, since Michi-
gan doesn't run an offense.
7:36 p.m. We'd just like to thank the Michi-
gan State athletic department for only giving
our four-person basketball beat two creden-
tials. Thanks a lot, Sparties.
7:43: p.m. Man, Petway can jump. Yeah, he
missed the block, but he can jump.
7:52 p.m. Way to let Maurice Ager dribble
down and score a bucket with two seconds left.
Then not getting a shot off before the buzzer
was pretty weak.
8:08 p.m. Start of the second half.
8:10 p.m. The Spartans come out strong,
with an Anderson alley-oop and a Davis jump-
er. It's amazing that some teams actually make
halftime adjustments. We wonder what that's
8:14 p.m. Damn Dion, you just got your
pocket picked. Of course it led to a Shannon
Brown throw down, then Harris was called for
8:15 p.m. Ashtyn Bell enters the game;
Tommy throws up the white flag.
8:17 p.m. The shot clock stopped working,
but it's not like the Spartans have needed any-
where near 35 seconds to score.
8:22 p.m. Now, while they fix the shot
clock, would be a good chance for Amaker
to do some coaching. But don't expect much.
After all, this is Tommy Amaker we're talk-
8:25 p.m. Second field goal in eight min-
utes? Is that an improvement?
8:26 p.m. Hunter tries to break someone
down off the dribble at halfcourt. He imme-
diately turns it over. That's our offense. Need
I say more?
8:29 p.m. Another shameless plug for "Tilt"
- this time comparing the poker faces of
Amaker and Tom Izzo. We can't decide what's
worse: comparing the faces or the dumb fan
holding up the "Tilt is next" sign?
8:31 p.m. Does Michigan ever want to get
an offensive rebound? The Spartans just like
three in a row on one series.
8:33 p.m. If Petway ever perfects a jump-
hook, he'll be unstoppable. Maybe if he spent
less time rapping and more time on his game,
he'd be sweet.
8:39 p.m. Michigan just committed its 20th
turnover. That seems to be the over/under mark
for the Wolverines in big games.
8:42 p.m. Musburger just said, "This is not
a team - it's a program." Of course he was
referring to Michigan State. Gee Brent, you
really don't like Michigan, do you?
8:50 p.m. Ager just completed an alley-opp
from half court. The Spartans are having a
pretty good time out there.
8:53 p.m. The Izzone just called out the
few Maize Rage fans in attendance: "We can't
hear you." We haven't heard from Michigan in
a while either.
9:02 p.m. The Izzone is now chanting where
this team is heading again this year: "N-I-T!
9:07 p.m. Whew, Michigan State has bal-
anced scoring. It must be nice to have everyone
on the floor to be a threat to score.
9:10 p.m. With the game in the bag with 45
seconds left, Izzo still makes a face when Kel-
vin Torbert was called for an offensive foul.
There's just no pleasing this guy.
9:12 p.m. We can't believe that Michigan
only lost by 11. This might have been one of
the most painful games to watch in recent
the michigan daily
