Remember the Michigan
The only reason I ask is that
it has been a little while since we last
saw the Wolverines. A week and a
half to be exact.
Well, to get you back in the swing
of things before Saturday's contest
against Miami (Ohio), here's a quick
synopsis of what has happened so far:
Michigan is off to its best start
since 1986. The Wolverines are
ailked eighth in the country and have
Virginia in a

Target ines' history,
Michigan has also accomplished

The Wolverines have answered a
lot of the preseason questions that
were nagging them.
So, without further adieu, here's a
look at what Michigan has shown so
Question No. 1 - Will the
defense be better than last year?
Survey says ... a resounding yes.
Last season, the traditional v
Wolverine "bend but don't break"
philosophy simply broke.
This year it has turned to "bend and
break the opponents' quarterback in
Last year, Michigan allowed its
opponents an average of 5.2 yards per
play. This year, through four games,
that number is down to a mere 3.6.
The Wolverines' defense has also
caused 12 turnovers, many of which
have set up the offense with prime
field position. They have also
recorded 16 sacks; they had only 29
in 12 games last season.
Truth be told, it is the defense that
has keyed Michigan's success at this
point in the season.
Question No. 2 - Will the
secondary be better than it was last
Again, the answer is yes.
The Wolverines' defensive
tlackfield took more heat than anyone
last season because of the big plays
they gave up.
This season there haven't been the

Daily Sports Writer
Mike Presley, Adam and Ryan Carriere, Bill Lanspeary and Andy Cosenza
aren't expecting warm welcome tonight whn they and the rest of the Michigan
men's soccer team lake the field againsi Srioolcraft Community College. These
five Wolverines are former Schoolcrat players.
"I tend to get more up [or this game herasse I played there," said Carriere, a
senior. "It's a big rivalsi hecause when 1 played there we beat Michigan and now
I'm on the other end. Its nice to go out and beat your old school."
The Wolverines take with them not only the motivation of a homecoming upset,
but also an insiders' point of view on Schoolcraft's game plan. Schoolcraft plays
a long-ball game, focusirg on the quick transition from defense to offense.
"Basically, they are a really physical team that plays the long ball," sophomore
Eric Frickel said. "They try to beat you coming off the counter-attack."
The Wolverines have spent this week practicing to defend against Schoolcraft's
"We've been preparing for the long ball, making sure that we don't get caught
offguard," Frickel said. "They will letyou come downon them as soon as theywin
the ball in their defensive third. Then, they try to switch up and knock the ball
through as quickly as possile."
The 5-3-2 formation the Wolverines have been working on this season lends
itself to defending a long-ball attack, with more defenders providing depth off the
"We have a strong defense," Carriere said. "With (sophomore) Matt Daily back
there, (the long ball) shouldn't be a problem. We should win all of the headers."
Michigan plans on closing down the Schoolcraft defense to prevent the attack
from starting is the hack.
"We just need to step upon their players right away to cut the passes off," Frickel
Coming off of three weekend victories, the Wolverines are looking to continue
their consistent play.
"We'd like to keep the same style of play that we had against Purdue," Carriere
said. "It's the best we've played all year. The 5-3-2 is really working well. We're
starting to score post. We're finally adapting to (the formation)."
Frickel agrees. "Scloulcraft is always an important game for us, and the rivalry
this season is especially there because of the five former players."
You've heard of HIV, but do you know oabout H ISV?
Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) is 100 times more contagious than HIV, with 240,000
new infections occuring each year. 75% of all cases occur among 15-39 year olds.
There is good news: you can be immunized against Hepatitis B1..
