At least Carr can take solace in his-
tory. That's Welsh's problem.
Ann Arbor has not been kind to the
Virginia coach. He has taken many
teams to Michigan, only to send them
home with sore behinds. "Back then,
(the Wolverines) spanked us pretty
- good," Welsh said.
When Welsh was at Navy, he visited
Michigan Stadium seven times and
never won. His Midshipmen were
outscored 252 to 44 in those games and
were shutout in three.
The Cavalier team he took over in
1982 has been even less successful
against the Wolverines. Virginia has
never scored a point on Michigan, losing
its only two meetings with the maize and
blue, 38-0, in 1899 and, 56-0, in 1971.
Times have changed, however. "I've
never brought this good of ateam to Ann

In addition to his premier defense,
Welsh returns running back Kevin
Brooks who scampered for 741 yards
and eight touchdowns last season. Quar-
terback Mike Groh was 138 for 216 in
1994, with 1711 yards and 13 touch-
In total, eight starters return on of-
fense and seven on defense for Virginia.
Welsh also has an intangible in his
hand. Aug. 26 is his birthday, and no
present would be better than beating the
Wolverines, he said.
"We should give (Michigan) a good
game," Welsh said. "Hopefully for me,
history will not repeat itself."
Virginia was 9-3 in 1994 and fin-
ished third in the ACC behind Florida
State and Duke. The Cavaliers defeated
Texas Christian, 20-10, in the Indepen-
dence Bowl and finished 13th in the
USA Today/CNN coaches poll and 15th
in the final Associated Press poll. Michi-
gan ended up third in the Big Ten last
season after Penn State and Ohio State
and was ranked 13th by the AP.
wn the Cavaliers Aug. 26 during the Pigskin Classic at Michigan
get off to a good start under new head coach Uoyd Carr. After back-to-
ach Gary Moeller, the pressure will be on.
