From Page 1A
Michigan punished and pum-
meled a team that is just three
games into its move from Divi-
sion 1-AA, and it had 41 fresh-
men on its roster after having to
add 22 scholarship football play-
ers to meet the minimum NCAA
Let's be clear from the outset
- it was an undersized, under-
manned, glorified intramural
team on the opposing sideline on
That isn't to show any disre-
spect to Massachusetts, but the
Minutemen came more for the
$650,000 payday than they did
a true competition. They knew
that, so did Michigan.
"If you want to be one of the
best teams in the land you need
to know what a great team looks
like and what a great program
looks like," Massachusetts coach
Charley Molnar said in a tele-
conference last week. "Going to
Michigan, that will really open
the eyes of our football players
to see what a great team looks
like, how a great program does
their business, this is how hard
they play, this is what their ath-
letes look like, this is what we
aspire to be.
"It took Michigan 100-plus
years to get where they are at,
maybe 120-125. We're only at
week two going into week three
of a Division 1-A program, so we

coffee snobs around here, but I do
think that our products are a little
better," he said.
Curtiss, who has worked at the
shop for eight years, said he isn't
worried about competition from
other cafes because Elixir attracts
a specific type of coffee connois-
He acknowledged that the
economy has had some negative
effect on profits, but the losses
have not been significant enough
to deter the shop's owners, Ed and
Mike Renollet, from expanding.
"We've had a couple good years
in a row," he said. "We found a spot
that, in terms of us and our busi-
ness model, is pretty much ideal."
Tim Hortons, the Ontario-
based coffee and bakery chain,
will join the Ann Arbor coffee
scene in the coming months with
three stores near campus accord-
ingto local property managers, in
addition to various other Washt-
enaw Countylocations.
Brynn Burton, a Tim Hor-
tons spokeswoman, wrote in an
e-mail that the company does not
comment on stores that haven't
opened yet.
"What I can say is we are look-
ing to expand throughout the
state of Michigan, where we cur-
rently have restaurant locations,
including new areas like Ann
Arbor," Burton wrote.

ager of Biggby Coffee on East

at least a vision of what a great
team looks like."
It's taken 133 years, I suppose.
A win's a win, and kudos to
the Wolverines for getting the
job done, but temper your take-
aways from this 50-point vic-
tory. It didn't mean anything.
It did nothing for Michigan's
quest for a Big Ten champion-
ship. It won't impress any poll-
sters or recruits. And it didn't
appear to do much to prepare
Michigan for a matchup with
upstart Notre Dame next week.
But Hoke and the players
kept pointing back to a differ-
ent reason that the Michigan-
Massachusetts matchup served
a purpose for Team 133. That's
the "team morale factor," as
Hoke put it.
Chemistry, morale, team spir-
it; there's something to be said
of their importance, especially
for a team that traveled a slim
majority of the 110-man roster to
a rout against Alabama in week
one, and came off a nail-biter
win against Air Force.
It was an old-fashioned beat-
down. Robinson tossed the ball
around the field to the tune of
291 passing yards - his fourth-
highest career total - but even
more importantly he connected
with nine different receivers.
Eight different Michigan players
scored touchdowns in the full-
team effort.

the Ann Arbor coffee market may
actually improve her store's sales
because customers will prefer
Biggby's coffee.
"(Customers) know they have
the cappuccinos, but they're not
the same cappuccinos we have
and ours are way better quality,"
Minney said. "I think they'll see
that we're a way superior product
and they'll come in here more."
One of the three Tim Hortons
stores is slated to open in the new
Landmark apartment complex on
the corner of South Forest and
South University avenues. No

into Landmark.

Sheena has a son at the Uni-
versity and said his son's friends
and students on campus seemed
receptive to the restaurant's idea.
"The concept that we're build-
ing here is set for campus-style
food," Sheena said.
Time Patino, general manager
of Cottage Inn Pizza located next
door, said he doesn't think Cot-
tage Inn's sales will be affected
because his sit-down restaurant
attracts a different crowd.

"Them having the ability
to play in this football game,
in front of 110,000 family and
friends, I think that's great,"
Hoke said.
And it is great. (Forget that
there were probably only 40,000
people left in the stadium.)
But don't forget tontake the
rosy glasses off for at least a
moment. Cox could tell you the
last time Michigan played a
game like this one. It was Oct.
17, 2009 and Delaware State
was in town - one of the three
games Cox ever got a carry at
The final score was 63-6. Cox
ran for 90 yards and scored the
only two touchdowns of his
career. (His 85 yards against
Michigan on Satuday was his
second-best career game.)
But that rout of hapless Hor-
nets was no barometer of Michi-
gan's success. The Wolverines
and Tate Forcier didn't win
another game that season, losing
to Penn State, Illinois, Purdue,
Wisconsin and Ohio State.
Not a nice memory, is it?
Don't get carried away. It's dog-
gone hard to take much out of a
50-point blowout, so don't hurt
yourself trying.

an impact on us, we do so much
more," Patino said. "We have a full
menu, we do a lot of catering, we
have a lot of in-house banquets."
Patino added that he's looking
forward to having a new business
open on East William Street, and

"I think if anything it's going
to ... create business," he said.
"There's more of a reason to come
on this side of William Street."
Though posters plastered
across campus read, "Don't shop
at Maple," Brandon Schram, Uni-
versity alum and co-owner of the
new men's clothing shop, is hop-
ing you will.
The posters, which were
placed around campus this week,
are part of Schram's advertising
campaign to garner interest in his
Schram and his partner, Brad
Friedman, opened shop at 406 E.
Liberty St. about a week ago. In an
e-mail interview, Schram wrote
that the clothing and accessories
store is marketing to the male
sophisticates that populate the
University's campus.
"From day one, we wanted to
make sure that we had a pres-
ence in Ann Arbor, as we strongly
believe that our store can fit nicely
in to the Ann Arbor retail scene,"
Schram wrote.
He said that while it was diffi-
cult to leave a steady nine to five
job, he and Friedman believe the
risk will pay-off.
"(Ann Arbor) is a vibrant city
and there are thousands of stu-
dents and locals who we believe
are willing to support the type of

store that Maple is," he wrote.

Students board one of seven hybrid buses on campus on Saturday.

because its employees also use
the buses.
"Based on the amount of
service (UMHS has) devel-
oped recently starting this year,
they've started providing some
capital for the buses," Johnson
For the first four hybrid buses,
Johnson said the additional
$170,000 required for a hybrid
bus, as opposed to a diesel bus,
was covered by a grant from
the Clean Energy Coalition's
Michigan Green Fleets program,
a program funded by the U.S.
Department of Energy.
Though more expensive than
traditional diesel buses, hybrid
buses offer increased fuel econ-
omy and the release of fewer
pollutants, Johnson said. Spe-
cifically, he said the buses release
30-percent less fuel emissions
than a diesel bus, cutting down
on both operational costs and
Johnson said the hybrid buses
arrived on schedule, in line
with replacement schedules for
older buses. With a 12 to 14 year
replacement cycle per bus, John-
son said it is expected the entire
fleet will be hybrid in the next 10
"It evens out the budget
impact, and in 12 or 13 years when
we try to replace them again we
don't have another big expendi-
ture," he said.
Johnson said an added ben-
efit of using hybrid buses is
lower maintenance costs. With
a diesel bus, brakes are normally
replaced at 40,000-50,000 miles,

while hybrid buses can go as far
as 85,000 miles before brake
replacements are needed.
"Because the engines don't run
at a constant high load like a die-
sel engine does, you can extend
your maintenance intervals a
little, which does provide some
cost savings," Johnson said. "The
hybrid system itself, while not
maintenance-free, is less mainte-
nance intensive."
Passengers of hybrid buses
will also experience added ben-
efits from the new buses, such as
expanded seating.
"It's a little bit smoother ride
- not as jerky - because with
electric power, you don't have the
constant shifting of the transmis-
sion," Johnson said. "Although
it helps, as far as the difference
between riding a diesel bus and
riding a hybridbus, moststudents
probably won't notice a huge dif-
Andy Berki, manager of the
University's Office of Campus
Sustainability, said the buses
increase awareness of sustain-
ability efforts on campus.
"They're important really from
avisibility standpoint more than a
direct impact on our greenhouse
gas emissions," Berki said. "If you
look at the University as a whole,
over 95% of our greenhouse gas
emissions on campus come from
heating and cooling our build-
ings, and a small percentage of
direct emissions actually come
from our transportation fleet."
Berki added that the buses also
serve as a traveling advertise-
ment for campus sustainability.
"The bus, being a hybrid bus,
it's a visible thing," Berki said.

"So it's really important for usto
have that visible element to our
sustainability efforts on campus
so people can really get a feel for
what we're doing and kind of get
on board."
Berki said he hopes students
take notice of sustainability
efforts on campus, like the new
hybrid buses, and get involved in
sustainable efforts at the Univer-
sity and beyond.
"The students on our cam-
pus are really the lifeline of our
future, so the more students that
get active and involved in sus-
tainability efforts, those are the
same students that are our future
leaders and hopefully will carry
some of this work forward after
they leave the University to make
real change," he said.
LSA sophomore Alex Por-
zondek, a frequent bus rider who
began working as a bus driver at
the start of summer, said he sup-
ports the decision to purchase the
hybrid buses for the sake of the
"I think it's a good way to keep
the environment healthy," Por-
zondek said.
Briauna Horton, an LSA soph-
omore who used the buses often
while living on North Campus
last year, said she believes sus-
tainability is critically impor-
tant to the University despite the
financial challenges.
"I believe that being more
environment friendly is worth
the cost because it helps pre-
serve our environment and that
is important," Horton said. "I
would like for (hybrid buses) to
be cheaper, but unfortunately we
are not there yet."
