geltinoready T m a me Story by Amy Watia and Lisa Harty Chip Peterson ew universities can boast 100 percent attendance at any event, especially one that occurs early on Saturday afternoon. But for six Saturdays each fall, the University proudly claimed that it attracted 102,501 spectators to Michigan Stadium, home of the Wolverine football team. The students and the alumni were devoted fans, donning maize and blue and chanting " Hail to the Victors. " They were the driving force behind the school ' s tradition of spirit. Football fans joined together to support the Wolverines. Thousands of fans walked the streets of Ann Arbor, heading towards the stadium. As fans got closer to the stadium, school spirit mounted. " I love to watch the marching band play in front of Revelli Hall and to follow them into the stadium, " said Sean McLaughlin, senior business major. Inside the stadium students showed their school spirit in a number of ways. " To show my enthusiasm, I wear Michigan clothing, put stickers on my face, and throw marshmallows and confetti, " said Amanda Jaros, LSA sophomore environmental studies major. Other students worked with the cheerleaders to cheer the team onto victory. the kujktujkt of gkveu $ Ike wiut wb pude 6 ociAteb utik Itoickitiw footl^M m ww ~ w ^^^^^r^^H^^^^^^^^^^^Wwjf^^^^^^^^fW^^^ , ctotkintj, tub The cheerleaders personified spirit during the games as they entertained the crowd with stunts and group cheers. They motivated the crowd, spelling out " MICHIGAN " by forming the letters with their bodies on the field. The game itself was, of course, the main attraction. " When Michi- gan scores a touchdown, the cheers are so loud that you can hear them in the Arb on the opposite side of campus. " said Nadir Ait-Laoussine, SNRE senior. The cold weather and rain, often a part of football Saturdays, did not keep fans away. They came from all over the country to partake in the tradition known as Michigan football. The overwhelming spirit kept the students ' section and alumni seats filled to capacity. Spirit served as a common thread between the diverse stu- dent body and alumni; it was the pride behind the name.

" Holz " was widely recognized for his rowdy cheers from row 1 of the student section. He planned to name the next superfan at season ' s end. Chip Peter
