first time ever. Winning the coin toss,
Michigan opted to field first. Illinois
racked up 62 runs for nine wickets
(equivalent to outs) in 23.1 overs (an

over is a group of six bowls or pitches;
23.1 represents one bowl in the 24th
over).Michiganansweredwithagame-

In addition to its usual color fac-
toids and Larry King column, USA
Today offered something different last
week: a bevy of college athletics cov-
erage. In two studies compiled of ath-
letic departments around the nation,
the University of Michigan excelled in
one and didn't embarrass itself in the
other, either.
Using a point system in which the
top team in each sport receives 20
points, the 20th best receives a point,
and so on, the national newspaper
named Michigan as the top men's pro-
gram in the country. The Wolverines
compiled 80 points to easily outdis-
tance second-place finishers Florida
and Texas, who each had 67 points.
USAToday also publishedalistof
graduation rates for the 287 NCAA
Division I schools for the class that
entered school in 1986-87. Michigan

an 80 percent rate.
Michigan Athletic Director Jack
Weidenbachstatedthatthereisalways
SAL room for improvement, but he ex-
pressed satisfaction with the way the
athletics program currently runs and
the results it has produced.
"We have what I believe is one of
