plan had notably low attendance,
averaging about 40 people each
except for one for staff, which drew
120. Sunday’s gathering had one of
the highest reported attendances
for a University-sponsored event
regarding diversity on campus this
past month, with over 180 people.

However, student attendance has

been much higher at student-run
events, such as protests Monday and
Tuesday night that drew more than
600 people.

During the forum, Schlissel

asked how University can engage
better with students, asking for

input from the audience.

“Where are the majority of

students on the campus, and what
more will it take to get everyone
involved, woken up and care about
this issue?” Schlissel said. “Just
having this group here talk, it does
us good, but we are not reaching
enough people.”

E. Royster Harper, vice president

for student life, also said she wished
more students had attended the
LSA diversity forums and other
University-sponsored events, and
highlighted the importance of
bringing everyone together into one
space to address issues of diversity
on campus.

“Look at our community: We are

together, we are talking,” she said.

“We are not perfect, but we sure are

saying while the administration is
investigating who was responsible
for the posters, it may never find the
party responsible.

The event was split into three

parts: small group conversations,
group summary discussions and
lastly, a speakout where students
were given two minutes to share
their opinions about the recent
events on campus.

Wolverines to hang on for the
victory, their first win over a top-10
opponent since upsetting the then-
ninth-ranked Badgers in 2008.

“I thought our secondary was

really good (and) our defensive
line was lights out,” said Michigan
coach Jim Harbaugh. “It was a
game ball for (defensive coordinator)
Don Brown kind of a game. Very
impressed with our defense, with
our defensive coaches and with the
character of our defensive players
and their talent. A-plus-plus.”

The game was back-and-forth

from the start, beginning with three
straight three-and-outs before the
Wolverines got on the board first on
an 11-play, 77-yard drive that started
near the end of the first quarter.
It was highlighted by a bizarre
sequence where Michigan’s offense
re-defined the term “I-formation”
by lining up in a 10-man straight
line under center on the last play
of the first quarter. (They call the
formation “Train,” Harbaugh later

The Wolverines readjusted right

before the snap, with senior running
back De’Veon Smith taking the
handoff and pushing the pile to the

1-yard line. Redshirt junior fullback
Khalid Hill punched it into the end
zone for his fifth touchdown of
the season on the next play, giving
Michigan a 7-0 lead.


himself under constant pressure,
narrowly avoiding multiple sacks
and throwing a near-interception
to safety Luben Figaro in the
second quarter. That karma would
eventually catch up to Speight, as he
was picked off by cornerback Derrick
Tindal in the third quarter to give
the Badgers the ball in Michigan
territory. They quickly capitalized,
with Hornibrook finding running
back Dare Ogunbowale on a 17-yard
wheel route for a game-tying

Harbaugh absolved Speight of

the blame for both of those throws,
though, saying the quarterback’s
only real mistake came when he took
a sack in the third quarter instead of
throwing the ball away.

“He was making good decisions,”

Harbaugh said. “I don’t know how
many decisions that is in a game,
but if you make one bad one, (you’re)
probably in the high 90s, percentage-

The Wolverines had numerous

chances to seize momentum earlier
in the game, but they allowed kicking
troubles and untimely penalties to
stop them cold. Fifth-year senior
kicker Kenny Allen missed both a 31-
and 43-yard field goal in the first half,
and sophomore Ryan Tice missed a

40-yarder when he took over for an
attempt in the third quarter.

Michigan also took a number of

key penalties on punt formations,
and it wasted prime field position
late in the first half when it recorded
both an illegal motion penalty and
offensive pass interference on a
deep pass to fifth-year senior wide
receiver Jehu Chesson.

The Wolverines managed to

keep the game tied until the fourth
quarter, though, and ultimately
outgained the Badgers, 349-159. It
also benefited from a stellar game
from senior cornerback Channing
Stribling, who had two interceptions
and two pass breakups.

Thanks to the defense’s steadiness

and the offense’s sudden resurgence,
Michigan now has a signature win
under its belt after four straight

“Any time you can beat a top-10

team and kind of let the world know
that we’ve got something going on
here … it’s special,” said redshirt
junior running back Ty Isaac. “It’s
not like fluke stuff.”

lost sophomore left tackle Grant
Newsome to an apparent knee injury
in the second quarter. Newsome
waved off the cart and walked to the
locker room with the help of trainers,
but Harbaugh said he would likely
require an unspecified “surgical
procedure.” Redshirt sophomore
Juwann Bushell-Beatty replaced
him at left tackle.

(the city) have a need where they
have excess houses that need to
come down, so we were able to get
a memorandum of understanding
signed,”he said. “It required the
city to go through quite a few legal
hoops to get there, including passing
some ordinances to allow us to work
on their equipment. They would
provide all the supervision, all of
the equipment, I would provide the
labor and my guys get valuable stick

Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson

of Gary, Ind., described a similar
collaboration in her city when the
federal government was able to
stretch federal dollars in dealing
with urban blight and crime, despite
low initial confidence. Using data

with the Department of Housing
and Urban Development and other
federal agencies, Freeman-Wilson
said she was able to quantify the
housing vacancy problem more
accurately and spend the limited
federal funding in the most useful

“Shortly after taking office in

January 2012, I got a visit from
our regional HUD secretary, and
he said, ‘I’m from the federal
government and I’m here to help.’
And I’m thinking, ‘OK, I’ll entertain
him for maybe 30 or 60 days and
send him on his way,’ ” she said. “But
I’m humbled to say that it really did
transform into a wonderful working

Augusta Gudeman, a first-year

master’s student in the Ford School
of Public Policy and the Taubman
College of Architecture and Urban
Planning, said she came to the panel
because she thought the problem of
urban blight was highly relevant.

“I think it’s something that

we’re going to see around the U.S.
probably more often, and it’s just
a really interesting case study, so I
was interested in what the leaders
had to say,”Gudeman said. “I wasn’t
familiar with anyone who was
on the panel before coming, but
learning about the federal and local
level partnerships was awesome.”

Describing the city of Gary’s

high murder rate, Freeman-Wilson
said that the problem was also

with the federal government. After
Freeman-Wilson wrote a letter to
then-Attorney General Eric Holder

one of the first cities involved in
the Department of Justice Office
of Justice Programs Diagnostic

“I’m telling you, I have never had

an experience as a guinea pig be so
positive,” she said. “Our murder
rate is half of what it was this time
last year, and I’m genuinely afraid
to say that publicly because you
never know what will happen, but
what I can say is that in changing


government, it has caused not just
the local government to come to the
table, but the county government,
the state government and private

Freeman-Wilson also said one of

the biggest hurdles in cooperation

with the federal government is
public distrust.

“The complication is the attitude

that local residents have,” she said.
“When we say that we’re part of the
Strong Cities, Strong Communities
initiative, they’re looking for the big
check. And when I say ‘Oh, no, no,
there’s no check,’ they’re looking
like someone pulled the wool over
my eyes.”

Muñoz agreed, citing public

distrust as one of the Obama
administration’s chief concerns.

“The thing that the president

fears the most is cynicism,” she
said. “This notion that things are
just broken, and that we can’t
make these neighborhoods places

believes that’s wrong, and we have
evidence that it’s wrong, and that
there is brilliant local leadership
and great innovation that people
in this country remain capable
of. This isn’t so much about the

much about the spirit in which the



First-year Public Health student

Camille Maker said she appreciated
the panel’s tone of cooperation.

“I really enjoyed the emphasis on

realizing that you can collaborate
together, and it’s not something
that you would come towards
thought for change from one single
direction, or from federal to state
level, from state level to community,
but that you can all impact every
single level between them and you
can all separately impact thought
for change,” she said.

registered to vote, 91 percent of the
respondents responded ‘yes.’ Seven
percent reported that they were not
registered, and 1 percent responded
as too young to vote.

When given the option of every

candidate on the ballot, 70 percent of
the respondents said they would vote
for Democratic nominee Hillary
Clinton. The rest of the group was
split mostly between GOP nominee
Donald Trump (12 percent) and
Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson
(11.7 percent). However, when only

given the option of Clinton, Trump
or “other,” the numbers changed,
with 75 percent saying they would
vote for Clinton and 15 percent
saying they would vote for Trump.

LSA junior Enrique Zalamea,

President of College Republicans,
said the Daily’s polling is reflective
of the growing base of supporters
Trump has in Michigan.

“Mr. Trump polling at nearly


Michigan Daily poll is tangible proof
of College Republicans’ efforts in
advocating the Trump campaign
amongst our membership,” Zalamea
said. “Just last Friday we took a
group of UMCR members to attend
Mr. Trump’s Novi Michigan Rally,
where his campaign was generous
enough to provide us with VIP

seating. Mr. Trump even spoke to
us privately before the rally to thank
us all for our efforts in volunteering
for and promoting his campaign.
The rally itself drew an incredibly
passionate crowd in the thousands
and maintained an energy level
unparalleled to any political event I
have ever attended.”

College Democrats declined to


When compared to a poll done by

the Daily on Sept. 18, more students
said they would vote for Clinton
at 74 percent, but fewer reported
that they would vote for Trump at
6 percent. Gary Johnson’s support
remains steady.
