told me the price, then he ran all the way
back," Ochoa said.
Friends remembered how Druchni-
ak's competitiveness and his passion for
Michigan football was exemplified when
he took off his pants and put them on
backward to create "rally pants" at 2004's
game against Michigan State.
Michigan rallied late in the game to
win 45-37 in triple overtime.
Druchniak also participated in var-
ious plays on campus.
"He was always so nice and genu-
ine and just generally a good person
to be around," said LSA sophomore
Jennifer Chiles, who worked with
Druchniak in two campus plays.
Friends said Druchniak had an
innate sense of creativity and a unique
way of viewing the world.
"Although our time with Jeff was far too
short, he has left us with a very full and rich
memory of laughter, karaoke, Michigan
football games, and pushing all our abilities
in and out of the classroom," Rosenfeld said.
Druchniak's friends urged those who
are depressed or contemplating suicide to
seek help from support systems. Ochoa
said people would be surprised by who is
there to support them, even if they don't
think anyone cares.

"Basketball was a loser' he said.
But when the men's team turned its season around and made
it to the Final Four, Rich had secured a piece of the broadcasting
market for the University. Schools like Ohio State University
paid him $25 to air his broadcast.
Although he had received great attention for his basketball
broadcasts, Rich realized he didn't want to broadcast the rest
of his life.
"Instead, I was very interested in the behind-the-scenes
networking;' he said. "I decided I might want to produce and
By 1948, Rich had finished a double bachelor's degree in
Speech and English as well as a master's degree in English.
After dismissing the options the state of Michigan offered in
directing and producing, he headed back to Rockaway Beach to
find a job. After nine months of scraping by without any luck
in the job market, he joined with another University alum and
started a radio show.
The show, called "Wanted," profiled a different criminal-at-
large every episode and was picked up by NBC radio.
Based primarily on interviews with various citizens
about their connections with the criminals, "Wanted"
helped the police nab three people in its first thirteen
weeks and even attracted the attention of FBI Director J.
NBC wanted to move the show off radio and onto television,
but Rich refused.
"I said no thanks," Rich said. "Even with the radio show, I
came too close to being rubbed out by gangsters."
Instead, he still hoped to become a director. Beginning his
climb up the film industry's pecking order, he snagged a job as
a stage manager for NBC.
"Within one year I had been asked to go out to the West
Coast and train other stage managers," he said.
His big break came when Rich was an associate director for
The director got sick, and Rich stepped in for him and
impressed the producers enough that they offered him his own
show to direct.
"It was the classic story of how a star is born," he said with
From there, Rich built a reputation as a dedicated director
known for demanding isolated rehearsal time with just the
actors and himself.
"I love rehearsing with good actors," said Rich, who never
allowed an audience to watch the rehearsals.
Once, he even turned away the daughter of the president of
"I wanted the actors to grow, not perform," he said. "I wanted
them to find more truth in (the script)," says Rich.
Though he claims to love every project he has done,
his favorite ones are all television serieses.
"I didn't like the slow pace of filming (movies)," he
Even if it seems like directing is a long way from his
English major days, Rich doesn't see it that way.
"A degree in English is a valuable tool for a director
to help actors understand what you want," he said. "It's
a communication business."
Even today, Rich is still a zealous supporter of the
institution that gave him his academic foundation. Rich
and his wife fund a year-long fellowship for a professor
through the Institute for the Humanities. He has also
supported various undergraduate merit scholarships.
"It's the most wonderful feeling to give back to the
University that changed my life," Rich said.

when she told her players about the move,
and attributed much of her players' reac-
tions to the timing of the announcement.
Ritt will not step into her new post
until June 1, but executive associate
athletic director Michael Stevenson and
others in the department decided that
the time was right to announce their
"We had spent almost a year in the
search for this position," Stevenson
Stevenson said more than 130 candi-
dates applied for the job, which became
vacant more than two years ago when
Megan Mccallister moved from the
athletic department to marketing. In
the interim, Stevenson filled the role of
monitoring all non-revenue sports (var-
sity sports except for football, hockey
and men's basketball).
Ritt was a perfect fit because she has
a deep understanding of the athletic and
academic culture, Stevenson said.
Along with her responsibilities for
the 22 Olympic sports, Ritt will become
Michigan's representative on the Big
Ten Sports Management Council. The
council hears suggestions from the
conference's coaches regarding poten-
tial changes to rules, regulations and
One of the first tasks Ritt will under-
take will be the hiring of her replace-
ment, and although she hasn't had any
contact with potential coaches, Ritt con-
fesses that she has a working list in her
"I know the tennis community very
well,' the coach said. "I've coached for
a long time. I know my colleagues very
well. I know their styles."
There is certainly a lot for Ritt to
think about and look forward to in her
new job, but she still has a full dual-
meet season to complete with her team.
Ritt is not in the least concerned about
losing focus on this season.
