Michigan beats
OSU by over 300
pints in 32nd
annual competition
By TANAZ AHMED
Daily StaffReporter
Though Team 134 lost The
Game Saturday, Michigan
claimed one victory against rival
Ohio State University.
The 32nd annual Blood Battle
competition against OSU came
to an end Friday with a sanguine
win for the University.
In 2012, OSU won the Blood
Battle, breaking the University's
previous record of four con-
secutive wins. The University
collected 2,575 pints of blood -
about 300 more pints than the
Buckeyes.
The University also won the
competition for organ and bone
marrow donor signups, beat-

ing OSU by more than 60,000
organ donation pledges and
200 more bone marrow donor
commitments. Overall, Blood
Drives United, a student-run
service organization that coor-
dinates the Blood Battle, found
103,286 organ donors for Gift of
Life Michigan, the state's organ
donor list and 300 bone marrow
donors for the Be the Match Reg-
istry.
Blood Drives United began
collecting donations on Nov. 4 at
stations sponsored by the Ameri-
can Red Cross. The drive contin-
ued daily at various locations on
campus, including the Michigan
Union and Michigan Stadium, to
meet the goal of 2,550 pints of
blood. During the three weeks,
more than 30 drives were held
around campus.
LSA senior Kevin Weiss, the
Blood Battle's co-chair, said the
group placed a greater empha-
sis on recruitment this after last
year's loss to OSU.

played
like they had
nothing to
lose because
there wasn't
anything
else to lose.
This was EVERETT
already the COOK
worst sea-
son of Brady
Hoke's Michigan coaching
career. Athletic Director Dave

Brandon was forced to release a
statement emphasizing the job
safety of his head coach. Before
the game, the job of at least one
coordinator, offensive coordina-
tor Al Borges, was most likely in
jeopardy.
Ohio State was a 14-point
favorite. People were expecting
a blowout. At a tailgate before
the game, Michigan fans were
more concerned with Ohio State
coach Urban Meyer potentially
running up the score than they

were about actually winning the
game.
So on a Saturday with nothing
to lose, the Wolverines played
the way they shou yhave all
along. Instead of mindlessly
handing the ball off-tackle for
a one-yard loss, Michigan had
reverses to tight ends and a dou-
ble pass from a wide receiver to
a wide receiver-turned-quarter-
back.
Michigan's running backs
carried the ball just 24 time ,

and you could count the num-
ber of off-tackle runs on one
hand. There was no forcing
the ball into the middle of the
defense behind a raw offensive
line, because the Wolverines
employed end-arounds and
reverses toward the sidelines to
spread the field.
And most importantly,
instead of taking sacks left and
right, Gardner took advantage of
receiversarunningshorter routes.

CAMPUS EVENT
AIDS week to
raise awareness
across campus

BSU and other
student groups to
host daily events
By EMILIE PLESSET
Daily StaffReporter
In observance of World AIDS
Day on Dec. 1, the University's
Black Student Union will host its
yearly AIDS in Black and Brown
Week this week. There will be
interactive events throughout
the week to spread HIV/AIDS
awareness and education on
campus.
Although BSU organizes the
week, events are run by a variety
of University-affiliated organi-
zations, including the National
Council of Negro Women, the
Women of Color Collective and
the Egyptian Students Associa-
tion.
LSA senior Tyrell Collier,
BSU's president, said the goal of
the week is to raise awareness
about the HIV/AIDS epidem-
ics' impacts on the Black and
Latino/a community.
LSA senior Ozi Uduma, BSU's
Seba - whose task it is to wel-
come, both physically and spiri-
tually, those present at the mass

meetings - and co-coordinator
of the week, said the events pro-
vide a domestic focus on the
HIV/AIDS epidemic in these
communities.
"Just because the U.S. as a
whole isn't talking about HIV/
AIDS or putting it on the fore-
front as they did in the 80s and
90s doesn't mean that it's still not
prevalent, especially for those
who grew up in the Detroit area,"
Uduma said.
The National Council of Negro
Women and Images will host the
first event of the week Monday
in North Quad at 7:00 p.m. Dur-
ing the event, participants will
play "Sex Games," a game-show
contest similar to Family Feud,
but the questions pertain to HIV/
AIDS and same-sex practices..
The same day, the Phi Beta
Sigma National Pan-Hellenic fra-
ternity will host the week's sec-
ond event in Palmer Commons
where participants will play
"Sexas Hold 'Em," - in the place
of poker chips, participants will
use condoms.
On Dec. 4 the Michigan
Women of Color Collective and
the Egyptian Students Associa-
tion are holding a screening of
the 2011 film "Asmaa" in North

For the next several months,

um of Art will exhibit Islamic art

complexity of everyday objects
from the eighth through the 19th
centuries.
A collaborative effort. UMMA
will host the exhibition of objects
from the Kelsey Museum of Archi-

Gallery. This exhibition is part

"It's an opportunity to do some-
thing together," said the associate

Space phenomena
exceed previous
observations
By IAN DILLINGHAM
Daily StaffReporter
On a desolate, rocky
mountaintop in the middle
of the Pacific Ocean, one of
the world's most advanced

ground-based telescopes and a
team of University researchers
seek to shed light on some of
the universe's greatest astro-
nomical phenomena.
A study expected to be pub-
lished Thursday in the journal
Nature will challenge the cur-
rent understanding of light
emissions from black holes,
based on the observations of
a collaborative global team
of researchers at the Gemini

Observatory in Hawaii.
It was previously believed
that light emission, or lumi-
nosity, from black holes
reaches a threshold called
the Eddington limit, at which
no more light can be emitted
due to the physics of the black
hole. Recent research, led by
Astronomy Prof. Joel Breg-
man, used various properties
of the black hole and neigh-
