Senior quarterback Denard Robinson runs for a gain against Purdue in Michigan's 44-13 victory over the Boilermakers on Saturday.
Michi'gan feasts on Purdue

- Welcome to the
place where inter-
ceptions fall into Michigan
hands as if dropped from a
" cloud. Where the Michigan
linemen can dictate games.
Where good just might be good
After wandering for four games
in the non-conference desert,
Michigan can finally see the
promised land. Football fans,
welcome to the 2012 Big Ten.
It's a strange place here, one
where Denard Robinson's
toughest decision is to try to

score or
duck out of
bounds and
avoid a hit.
Here, the
ness of a cer-
tain tailback
matters not, ZACH
nor does a HELFAND
kicker that
just doesn't
have the legto hit from far out.
Here, Michigan dominates the
line of scrimmage. It started
with the offense's first touch.
Robinson rushed for a modest

five yards, and all of a sudden,
78-yards and 8:48 of game time
had gone by and there was
Fitzgerald Toussaint, pounding
the ball in for the score, 7-0.
The drive was 17 plays of line-
men colliding and Robinson
checking down and Toussaint
grinding for a short gain. No
play went for more than 10
yards, save a facemasking pen-
alty on Purdue's Kawann Short.
This isn't Bo Schembechler's
Big Ten, and it wasn't exactly
the tailback for three yards and

17 touches. No, this is the new
Big Ten, where ball control and
a dash of flapping shoelaces are
enough to win.
Yes, the Wolverines' defense
was smothering. When Jake
Ryan wasn't in the backfield,
he was disrupting the potent
Purdue screen game in the
flats. He knows Big Ten games
are different. "We all know it,"
Ryan said.
"One loss can do it for us, and
we don't want that," fifth-
year senior linebacker Kenny
Demens put it. "We want to go

'U' alum discusses
fiscal problems
plaguing the
United States
Daily Staff Reporter
At a conference Friday
morning held at the Michigan
Union, Samuel Zell, chairman
of the Equity Group Invest-
ments, LLC and a University
alum, provided a bleak outlook
for the world economy.
Speaking to about 200 busi-
ness professionals, Zell told
the audience that opportuni-
ties for private equity inves-
tors are being destroyed by a
combination of European fiscal
weaknesses, slowgrowth inthe
developing world, government
investment in the private mar-
kets and low interest rates.
"What is private equity?"
Zell said. "It's nothing more
than a prediction, or a bet on
the future."

Saturday morning, individu-

Rackham Auditorium where

journalists, authors and pub-

their area of expertise, while
students integrated themselves
into the folds of the conversa-

State of the Book symposium,
was the beginning to the day-
long celebration of literature.
The event consisted of a
series of panels, performances
and speakers that included some
of Michigan's most notable
writers, such as fiction writer

Charles Baxter and former U.S.
Poet Laureate Philip Levine.
Local booksellers and repre-
