Rough game mirrors disappointing season

When fans outscore their team, you
know it's been a rough night.
And that's exactly what hap-
pened on Friday night at Yost Ice Arena. The
Michigan hockey team
couldn't outscore the
Score-O participants.

I understand bad

But this wasn't just a bad game or a case
of the puck bouncing the wrong way or even
the officials being particularly harsh.
Michigan was just outplayed. Forget that.
The Wolverines stunk.
The RedHawks out-hustled them to the
puck, out-hustled them into the corners and
may have even out-hustled them out of Yost.
Think I'm being too harsh? Ask coach
Red Berenson.
"We got outworked from the start of the
game to the end of the game and in every
department " Berenson said.
Ouch. And he wasn't kidding. Miami even
out-hat tricked Michigan.
But Kolarik sent fans into a frenzy with
his hat trick on Thursday night, notching his
final goal on an empty net.
Miami's Nathan Davis netted a short-
handed goal and a garbage goal before cap-
ping his trifecta by out-muscling captain
Matt Hunwick to a loose puck to score a
second short-handed goal. Even Davis's hat
trick was more impressive than Kolarik's on
Thursday.

When Berenson was asked if he saw
shades of last season during this game, he
didn't mince words. Berenson responded that
no game last season was as bad as this one.
Really?
Mind you last year the Wolverines lost 4-3
to Ferris State on Senior Night at Yost Ice
Arena despite holding a 3-0 lead.
And when asked if he had sensed there'd
be a letdown prior to the game, Hunwick
said, "We knew the intensity was going to be
a lot higher tonight, and I just think we were
not prepared."
How could this team be unprepared when
the RedHawks handed it to them in a two-
game sweep last season?
None of the Wolverines' troubles should
be unfamiliar to Michigan hockey fans.
The weak power play, the stupid penalties
and, most importantly, the seeming lack of
effort all plagued the team last year. And
throughout Friday's game, those tendencies
popped up again. The only difference was
that Michigan couldn't blame any of this on
inexperience.

games happen and sometimes things
your way. A shot hits the post (like K
wicked shot that clanged off the cross
in the second period), or the puck bot
over a stick when there's an open net.
understandable. It happens. That's th
of sports.
Tankers sweep
local dual meet
The No. 11 Michigan men's
swimming and diving team
wouldn't accept second place in its
dual meet against Eastern Michi-
gan on Friday.
Wolverines earned the top spot
in each of the meet's 15 events for
a resounding 165-107 victory.
Alex Vanderkaay, Matt Patton
and Bobby Savulich each won two
events.
Sophomore Kyle Schroeder
was the top Michigan diver in the
meet. He won both the one- and
three-meter springboard events.
His score of 308.63 on the one-
meter qualified him for the NCAA
zone diving qualifying meet.

Maravic reaches
third round
The Michigan men's tennis team
performed solidly at the Wilson/
ITA Midwest Regional Champion-
ships in Minneapolis this weekend.
Matko Maravic had the most
prolific singles effort for the Wol-
verines. Maravic, the 25th ranked
player in the country made it to the
third round before falling to Illinois'
Marc Spicijaric (6-4,6-4).
Maravic also played well in the
doubles bracket. He and his partner
George Navas made itnto the third
round where they ran into the No.
36 pairing of Ryan Keckely and
Sheeva Parbhu from Notre Dame.
Michigan will play an exhibition
against team alumni on Saturday

ory for Weaver.
In 2003 when he was with the New
York Yankees, he surrendered a 12th-
inning home run to Florida's Alex
Gonzalez that evened the series at two
games apiece. The Marlins went on to
defeat the Yankees in six games.
A mitigating factor in that failure:
Weaver had been pitching for the
second straight game after a 28-day
layoff.
When he faced the Tigers on Sun-
day night, he had been on a roll.
Weaver had been 2-1 with a 2.16
ERA in the postseason after going 8-
14 with a 5.76 ERA for the Cardinals
and Angels, who designated him for
assignment in June to make room for

competition at the ITA National
Indoor Championships Nov. 2-5.
Sugiyama onto
quarterfinals
Chisako Sugiyama advanced past
the first three rounds of the Wilson/
ITA Midwest Regional Champion-
ships in East Lansing. She will take
the court for her quarterfinal match
against Eastern Michigan's Vanessa
Frankowski today at 10 a.m.
In the second round, Sugiyama
defeated No. 92 Mallory Voelker of
Purdue (6-4,6-3).
Sugiyama also had a great week-
end in the doubles bracket. She and
her partner Jenny Kuehn reached
the semifinals before falling to
Notre Dame's Brook Buck and
Kelly Tefft,the nation's 27th-ranked
doubles pairing.
Michigan's next competition
comes at the ITA National Indoor
Championships in Columbus Nov.

kid brother Jered in their rotation.
A free agent after this season, his
surge lately has led to thoughts he
could fit in a reconstituted rotation
next year.
Only one starter, ace Chris Carpen-
ter, is under contract after the season.
The Cardinals have long admired
Weaver's live arm.
Weaver started the year with an
$8 million contract after winning 14
games for the Dodgers in 2005. By
the time the Angels gave up on him
the price tag, a minor leaguer, was
minuscule.
Once near the bottom, his stock
had been on its way back up.
He was 3-0 in his last five starts,
finally rounding into form and helping
the Cardinals avoid a historic collapse
in September.

"We all have to take responsibility for

everyone."
But no one, myself included, should push
the panic button just yet. There are still
plenty of games left in the season. And as
Berenson himself said, it's difficult to beat a
CCHA team twice in a weekend.
Still, the Wolverines have to be careful not
too fall into the same pattern of mediocre
play and inconsistency they had last season.
They cannot continue to say "Next time we'll

will be ending and a regular-season CCHA
title will already be out of reach.
Senior Tim Cook said the entire team has
to make a mental decision before every game

If Michigan wants to avoid a repeat of last
season, that mental decision has to turn into
a primal instinct.
