Th umbs up and down for hockey band
Yes, Band Corner returns.
And let's talk about The Victors.
Has there ever been more stirring renditions of the Michigan fight
song than those heard in Yost Ice Arena this weekend? Two
seasons ago, Michigan coach Red Berenson talked about his goals.
He said he wanted the hairs on the "back of your head to stand up"
when Michigan players came out of the lockerroom and onto the ice.
With capacity crowds on their feet, the band's sounds definitely had
hairs standing on edge. It was a tremendous sight and feeling.
Now, let's list the good and the bad about the hockey pep band.
They are a pep band, and play material a pep band should.
Take note basketball.
They are at the top of their game in the first period.
They die in the second period. Where are they? They sit and
don't play. Did you forget you brought musical instruments? On
Friday, after sitting quiet during numerous breaks, the guy with the
cow bell started hacking out his little rhythm. Startled that anyone
might tread on their sacred turf, the band begins to play, knocking
out the cheer. Bad move, guys.
They insist on having three or four saxophones play some
little melody. I don't know what it is because only those within a six
foot radius can hear. Get a clue. Can three saxophones be heard
with 7,000 people in the building? I think not.
The athletic department, since it saved money from the
basketball team's no show in the NCAA, should plan on sending the
band, or at least a portion of it, to Boston. Remember the flack Bo
Schembechler caught when he wasn't smart enough to do the
same when the basketball team went to Atlanta? Then again, they
won a national championship that year. Coincidence? Anyhow, pay
the bucks, send the band.
And keep playing The Victors.

Ruddock looks to shave Tyson

i

Associated Press

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Donovan
"Razor" Ruddock recalls watching
in dismay as James "Buster" Dou-
glas beat Mike Tyson.
He thought that should have
been him in there winning the
heavyweight championship.
Douglas got the shot when
Tyson pulled out of a scheduled
Nov. 18, 1989, defense against
Ruddock because of illness.
"I can knock him out in three
rounds," Ruddock thought as he
watched Douglas' 10th-round
knockout of Tyson on Feb. 11 at
Tokyo.

On Monday night, Ruddock
gets a chance to translate his
thoughts into action when he fights
Tyson in a 12-round bout outdoors
at The Mirage.
Also appearing on the card are
welterweight champions Simon
Brown and Maurice Blocker, ju-
nior welterweight champ Julio Ce-
sar Chavez and Roberto Duran,
who has held world titles in four
weight classes.
While no title is involved, the
stakes are high for Tyson and Rud-
dock.
The winner will be in line for a
mandatory title challenge against

t

"
-r
'

the winner of Evander Holyfield's
title defense against George Fore-
man on April 19 at Atlantic City,
N.J. Holyfield knocked out Douglas
in the third round last Oct. 25.
Tyson is ranked the No. 1 con-
tender and Ruddock No. 2 by the
International Boxing Federation,
World Boxing Council and World
Boxing Association.
The WBC wanted to withdraw
championship recognition from
Holyfield for signing to fight
Foreman instead of Tyson, but was
blocked by litigation from doing
SO.
"This is the fight for the legiti-
mate heavyweight title," Ruddock
said.
"No one respects Evander Holy-
field as the champ. There are only
two of us - me and Mike Tyson
- and one of us has to go."
The wise guys say it will be
Ruddock who goes. Tyson is the 5-
1 favorite.,
Asked why he would want to0
fight Tyson now instead of taking
an easier path to a title bid, per-
haps one against Tyson for a lot
more money, Ruddock said: "I
don't like the easy way.
"I want to go against the grain.
On March 18, I'm going against
the grain."
Most boxing people think the
scheduled 12-rounder will not end
in a decision.anda lot of the'm0
