Michigan history? You don't.
Michigan will count on its four new
starters on the offensive line to gel
quickly and open up some running room
for taithack Chris Perry, who showed
promise in relief of Anthony Thomas in
2000.
The receivers may be the strength of
the unit, with playmaker Marquise
Walker and deep threat Ronald Bellamy
returning. It's anybody's guess whether
inciirmbent John Navarre or transfer
Spencer Brinton will takeover for Hen-
son. Michigan welcomes back a host of
talented defenders to the Big House,
including one of the best linebacking
corps in the nation, led by Larry Foote
and Victor Hobson.
The WotVerines will need more pres-
sure from tair front four to make things
easier on tse secondary, which had a
tough time last season. Michigan hosts
Purdue, avoids Northwestern, but visits
to East Lansing and Madison will be
-tough.

on Brooks Bollinger and Jim Sorgi, the
two-headed quarterback, to make good
decisions throwing to some talented
wideouts. Anchoring the Badger defense
will be All-America defensive tackle

these two teams and maybe you have a
contender (the Iowa-Indiana Hawsiers?).
But that won't happen, and both teams
look to be in another battle for the cellar
of the Big Ten.

Hilbert will be the third underclass-
men to leave the Michigan hockey pro-
gram in the last 12 months, joini
Comrie and defenseman Jeff Jillson. No
other players are expected to leave
before the season begins.
"It is a compliment to our program,"
Berenson said. "When you look at the
kind of kids that we are recruiting, the
success they have had here and the suc-
cess they have had when they move on."
But Berenson remains optimistic
about next season.
"I think our defense will be every ha
as good or better this year," Berenson
said. "I don't know where the goals and
points are going to come from. But we
have as good a goaltender as anyone in
college hockey."
