- Irish split two games with fifth-ranked Spartans (By MATT OLIVA Sports Writer)
Notre Dame's weekend series against Michigan State marked a crucial point in the Irish schedule. Two games against the league leader would determine whether the Irish would climb up in the CCHA standings or fall further. It was a home-and-home series between a Spartan team that was 11-4-0 (10-2-0 CCHA), ranked fifth in the country, but losers in three of their last four games, and a Notre Dame team that improved its record to 5-7-2 (3-5-2 CCHA) after a slow start, but had not defeated Michigan State at home in their last 10 meetings.

Every week on my radio show on WVFI, I do what I call a "Millennium Update," during which I talk about some weird, strange or otherwise idiotic thing that has to do with the year 2000. For the half-dozen or so of you who've actually heard my show, you know. For the rest of you, here's a brief primer.
- MARTINEZ'S 'ARROWS' MISS THE MARK Martinez a danger to academia (LETTER TO THE EDITOR )
I hope that most students who read Gabriel Martinez's recent column, "Be Aware of the Signs You Send to Men" (12/2), are intelligent enough to recognize how offensive and ignorant this column is. This article is not only an affront to women, to whom Mr. Martinez addresses it, but to men as well.
- MARTINEZ'S 'ARROWS' MISS THE MARK There are more kinds of men than 'pigs' and 'good guys' (LETTER TO THE EDITOR )
In one fell swoop, Gabriel Martinez could send gender relations at the University of Notre Dame to the Dark Ages. His column did nothing but perpetuate every gender stereotype I have ever heard. In the future, I would hope that Mr. Martinez would stick with his clear-cut economic analyses rather than ignorantly dabble in an evaluation of gender relations.
- MARTINEZ'S 'ARROWS' MISS THE MARK (EXCERPTS FROM MORE LETTERS )
We live with these guys for four years. We eat with them, attend classes with them, study with them, go to parties with them and form relationships with them. Roughly 65 percent of us typically marry these men after we graduate. How are we to know which of them support sexist and misogynist ideas when many of us remain unaware of the undercurrent of sexism and misogyny that has traditionally plagued our campus? Gabriel Martinez's column greatly concerns me in this respect because of its insistence upon only seeing and labeling women either as saints or as whores. This kind of thinking contributes to the culture of rape, sexism, and misogyny which has traditionally been espoused by peoples all over the world.
