In the latest Associated Press college football poll, released yesterday, Michigan, routed on Saturday by top-ranked Florida State, has fallen from third to seventh. Nebraska, ranked 15th, now has made 161 straight appearances in the AP poll, breaking Michigan's record of 160. The Cornhuskers, who had been 16th, stayed in the rankings by beating Arizona State, 18-9, on Saturday night.

Marcus Witherspoon, a standout senior defensive end/linebacker at Holy Spirit, returned from a recruiting trip to Rutgers yesterday and decided he would attend Michigan on a football scholarship. Before the season, Witherspoon made an oral commitment to Michigan, but he started to have second thoughts after Wolverines coach Lloyd Carr resigned in November. The 6-foot-2, 225-pound Witherspoon subsequently visited Tennessee and Rutgers and was impressed by both schools. "But he understands the power of a Michigan degree and what it means," Holy Spirit coach Bill Walsh said yesterday.

This is what Michigan invokes. Only the Wolverines and their relentless posturing could have whipped a disinterested crowd on a neutral court into a raging frenzy against anything wearing maize and blue. Maybe it was as Michigan center Juwan Howard said. Perhaps the Kansas Coliseum crowd really was just rooting for underdog Pepperdine. Still it's hard to imagine the boos streamed down at Michigan solely because the Wolverines had narrowly held on for a 78-74, overtime victory last night in a Midwest Region first-round game.

Second in a series of previews on the Final Four teams.   Tomorrow: Wichita State.   ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Nik Stauskas took the pass in transition only to find himself caught under the basket with a defender next to him. No problem: He dropped a nifty no-look bounce pass to a teammate for a dunk. On Michigan's next offensive possession, the freshman from Canada made an open three-pointer from the left wing. Later, he moved to the left corner for a three and followed that with a driving layup.

Steve Fisher received his first college head-coaching job Wednesday, and yesterday Steve Fisher got his first college basketball victory. And that can't begin to describe the pressure, the agony, the thrills that Fisher endured in his first 48 hours on the job. Fisher guided No. 3 seed Michigan (25-7) to a super-charged 92-87 win over No. 14 Xavier (21-12) yesterday in a first-round NCAA Southeast Regional game that rocked the rafters with theater. Prowling the aisles of the Omni like an expectant father was the coach of Michigan's past, Bill Frieder, who resigned as coach Wednesday after accepting a job with Arizona State for next year.

In 20 years at Illinois, coach Lou Henson had never started 0-3 in the Big Ten. That all changed last night. Maurice Taylor scored all but two of his 17 points in the second half as No. 23 Michigan rallied for an 83-68 victory over the 21st-ranked Fighting Illini at Ann Arbor, Mich. Illinois (11-4, 0-3) last lost its first three conference games in 1975, when Gene Bartow was the coach. Michigan (12-4, 2-1) has not lost to Illinois in more than four years and the Wolverines have won the last nine from Illinois and 12 of 14. "I'm sure they're going to react like any other group," Henson said.

Michigan's bread and butter - Glen Rice and Terry Mills - outshined South Alabama's "peanut butter and jelly" guard combination - Junie Lewis and Jeff Hodge. It was one heck of a show yesterday, won by Michigan, 91-82. Michigan (26-7) will meet North Carolina Thursday in the Southeast Regional semifinals in Lexington, Ky. North Carolina has eliminated the Wolverines from the tourney each of the last two seasons. This year's Wolverines seem determined to change that the third time around.

Michigan has received permission from Seton Hall to talk to coach Tommy Amaker about the Wolverines' coaching job, Seton Hall athletic director Sue Regan said yesterday. "However, we are confident that the commitments made by Seton Hall and by Tommy Amaker are for the long term," she said. A message was left at the office of Michigan athletic director Tom Goss last night. Goss has said he has five people in mind for the job, including Brian Ellerbe. Ellerbe was a Michigan assistant who took over as interim coach after Steve Fisher was fired just before practices were scheduled to begin in the fall.

It's difficult to talk about any aspect of the Michigan football team - offense, defense or special teams - and not talk about Jabrill Peppers. That was the case last Saturday as the versatile Peppers helped spur the fourth-ranked Wolverines to a 45-28 victory over Colorado. He closed out the scoring with a 54-yard punt return for a touchdown. He led the defense with nine tackles, including 31/2 for losses and one sack. He rushed twice for 22 yards and piled up 204 all-purpose yards.

The night before the Michigan Democratic primary, Hillary Clinton sounded as if Bernie Sanders soon would be in her rearview mirror for good. "I hope to work with him - the issues he has raised, the passion he has demonstrated, the people he has attracted - are going to be very important in the general election," Clinton said, calling the Vermont senator an "ally" during a Fox News town-hall meeting Monday. That seemed inartful Tuesday as Sanders won the Michigan race, defying polls that had shown Clinton with a lead of as many as 17 percentage points.

Attytood SUPER SATURDAY? Really? Saturday's mish-mosh of primaries and caucuses has to go down as one of the most boring and predictable days of the 2016 campaign so far. On the GOP side, Donald Trump won the states where people think Barack Obama was born the Antichrist or in Kenya or both (Kentucky, Louisiana) while Ted Cruz rules the Bible Belt; the fist-shaking prairie populists voting for Bernie Sanders on the Democratic side are drowned out by near unanimous black support for Hillary Clinton in the South.

HOLLAND, Mich. - John Karsten, former Marine, stood at parade-ground attention and asked Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Republican candidate for president, to settle an argument. "We love you, but my wife says it's a waste of a vote," said Karsten, 79, a Dutch immigrant who serves as town crier for the annual Tulip Time festival. "So can you convince me to vote for you and that it's not a waste, because we feel bad about that. " Kasich, who has yet to win a primary or caucus, vows to stay in the Republican race at least until March 15, when his home state votes.

It's 587 miles from Camden to Ann Arbor, Mich. It just doesn't seem that far to Brad Hawkins and Ron Johnson. "Like home away from home," Hawkins said. Said Johnson, "First time I went there, I knew it was where I wanted to be. It felt like home to me. " Hawkins and Johnson, Camden High School seniors and first-team all-South Jersey players, on Wednesday signed national letters of intent to attend the University of Michigan. The signings by Hawkins and Johnson were the highlights of a festival affair in the school's second-floor library, where more than 100 students, family, friends, teachers, administrators and dignitaries - including Camden Police Chief Scott Thomson - gathered to celebrate one of the most significant days in the history of the football program.

Hours after writing, "Unfortunately, my heart is somewhere else" and "Happy Valley isn't where I belong," the 6-foot-2, 285-pound Dwumfour announced he had committed to Michigan. He called it "my dream school. " Dwumfour, a three-star recruit who attends DePaul Catholic High School, is the fourth player to back out of a commitment to the Nittany Lions, and the third defensive lineman.
