From Page 1A
a rude awakening, paralyzing the.
brain. The silence that over took
Tim Hardaway Jr. as he looked
up at the scoreboard and bit at his
uniform to fight back the tears.
Yes, the scoreboard read cor-
rectly, Duke won, 73-71.
"Everything went blank," Hard-
away Jr. would say after the game.
He heard nothing. Thousands
of Duke fans screamed as Mike
Krzyzewski notched his 900th
win, but Hardaway Jr. heard
Then there was the silence of
Jonathan Kirbitz packing up his
drum set for the last time. For
four years, he's been the Michigan
pep band's drummer, but when
that ding came, his career ended.
The band director looked up at his
band and asked the seniors to lead
the group for their final round of
Kirbitz is graduating in May
and doesn't know what he'll do.
He wants to continue playing
music, he says, but it won't be for
Michigan. Unlike every member
of the Michigan basketball team,
he won't return.
His career ended the moment
that silence did.
And then there was the
moment no one saw when Lauren
McLaughlin meticulously placed a
sticker reading 'Duke' as the win-
ner on the bracketnthat hung out-
side the arena. It was a placard that
represented the Wolverines' defeat
- perhaps the first physical mani-
festation of the loss. She attached
the sticker and said nothing.
Perhaps she expected to put
the Blue Devils' name there, like
so many others, but the NCAA
had printed up Michigan's sticker
She wouldn't need to use it. She
carelessly threw it into the trash.
There was no rebound. That shot
was perfect and the crumbled
sticker lay unused and silent in
the bottom of the can.
Right now that sound is the
silence that filled Zack Novak's
heart as he stood at midcourt
coming to the realization that his
junior season was over.
It's the worst feeling in the
world, like someone died, he'd say.
And then there was the silence
of the arena after the game, as
Morris reemerged from the locker
room and walked onto the court
where his season had ended less
than an hour before.
A handful of reporters and
maintenance workers fell quiet.
He looked at no one and walked
across mid-court towards the bas-
ket that may haunt him until next
season. With an invisible ball, he
reattempted that shot.
His right hand, with perfect
form, glided through the empty
space. His headphones jiggled
around his neck. He jumped off
his right foot and landed again.
But the sound of the pros-
pects of nextyear's team roared
throughoutthe arena. A team that
will lose no one. A team that will
return with a chip on its shoulder.
A team that will no longer have a
target on its heart, but rather, on
And then a voice from the
upper deck broke that silence, just
like that ding broke the silence of
the ball rushingthose the air.
"Keep your head up."
Morris looked up and contin-
It will be what this team needs
to do. Because for now, there will
be silence and it will be a painful
silence. It will be the sound of
people not knowing what to say.
Whether to apologize or congrat-
ulate a team thatnbrought Michi-
gan basketball out of irrelevance,
if only for a few weeks.
It willbe a silence that repre-
sents the end of a hopeful season
and a quiet March for the Wolver-
Morris won't get that shot back.
But on Thursday or Friday,
they'll be back in the gym again.
And that silence that represented
so much, yet held nothing, will
be filled with sounds of a team
preparingto do work again next

that the union was pleased to
get a deal done.
"As the bargaining team went
into bargaining on Friday with
new proposals, we had no idea
that we would sign a tentative
agreement 13 hours later at 2
in the morning," Echols wrote.
"The University's team was
eager to conclude negotiations
when they learned that GEO
members had decided not to
extend the contract a second
time earlier last week."
Gillezeau wrote that the sign-
ing of the tentative agreement is
evidence of the power of collec-
"The union and the Univer-
sity were able to come together
at the table and reach an agree-
ment that addresses significant
problems facing employees with
disabilities, parents, interna-
tional students and others," he
Under the tentative agree-
ment, GEO members will
receive more accommodations
for disabled employees, which
Gillezeau called "historic."
The 1,800-member union
represents all University grad-
uate student instructors and
graduate student staff assis-
tants. The tentative agreement
sets wage increases for GEO
members over the three years
covered by the contract at 2.5
percent, 3 percent and 3 percent,
In the new contract, mem-
bers will also receive increased
childcare subsidies and access
to lactation spaces. GEO will
also have three representatives
on a six-person committee to
evaluate the University's cur-
rent spousal work and study
requirements for child care sub-
Several new employee ben-
efits will also be included in the
contract, including the estab-
lishment of a job posting web-
site for GSIs and GSSAs and the
elimination of mandatory group
work hours after 1 a.m.
More details of the agree-
ment will be made public after
the ratification vote by GEO's
general membership, accord-
ing to a University press release
made public today.
Gillezeau wrote that the bar-
gaining team is "thrilled with
this outcome." GEO and the
University reached an agree-
ment without a strike for the
first time in 20 years, he wrote.
"This is how collective bar-
gaining is supposed to work,
and we hope that this sets a new
standard for our relationship
with the University," Gillezeau
Ronald Dick, associate
director of Academic Human
Resources at the University,
wrote in the press release that
the tentative agreement signi-
fies constructive cooperation
between GEO and the Univer-
"With this agreement we
were able to work together to
pave the way for timely and
effective accommodations for
graduate students with disabili-
ties in need of accommodations
to fulfill their responsibilities
as graduate student instructors
or graduate student staff assis-
tants," Dick wrote.
While members of GEO and
expressed overall satisfaction
with the tentative agreement,
some issues GEO members
have been lobbying for - like
the inclusion of GSRAs under
GEO's contract and the reduc-
tion of prescription co-pays
- weren't included in the new
However, Gillezeau wrote
that the tentative agreement
addresses an impressive num-
ber of issues considering the
current political and economic
situation in Michigan.
After a vote by GEO's general
membership on Wednesday,
the agreement will be brought
before the University's Board of
Regents for approval.
