Bo ' plans defensive emphasis in drills

Army upsets South Carolina


The 1969 Michigan football
team is on the way. The Number
One Sport will soon begin work
towards its 91st season.
Bo Schembechler, the man who
replaced Bump Elliott, announc-
ed that. spring drills will begin
April lst and last through the
19th. After :exams, the sessions
will be from April 28 to May 6.
Schembechler explained, " W e
are having the split practice be-
cause we're so far north andi be-
caiuse- we have no indoor facili-
ties now that Yost has been re-
suiaced. Big Ten rules won't al-
low us to wait and hold the whole
thing after school is out."
He continued, "NCAA rules al-
low 20 practice days within a 36-
day period, excluding Sundays. We
hope to get in at least 14 of those
days before the break."t
Speaking about his own job, the
coach said, "There hasn't b e e n
much time to get ready' for prac-
tice because scholarship tenders
went out on March 15, but the
boys have been involved in condi-
tioning all winter. We don't have
time to get them in shape during
the spring.
"Injuries are disaster in t h e
spring because the purpose of this
work is to look at next year's
prospects. We're not going to have
any big, heavy scrimmages until
we know what, we're doing."
Schembechler feels that t h e
cgaching change won't hurt t h e
football program too .badly. "We
have a nucleus of good freshmen
and our recruiting is going well.
It all depends on getting a few
key Individuals. In fact, I think
that Michigan has a better chance
at some. of the Ohio boys that it
did before."
Wolverine fans are well aware
of the wealth of talent produced
in Ohio prep schools.

As for the players he can al-
ready count on, the former Woody
Hayes aide commented, "We like
to play defense. We'll sacrifice of-
fense for defense."
He is most impressed with his
defensive secondary. "I feel this
is really important. We have some
good backs returning like T o m
Curtis, Brian Healy, and M a r k
Werner, but we may use one or
two upcoming freshmen, too."
On the defensive line, he de-
scribed Henry Hill as "excellent."
He is also high on Phil Seymour,
but mentioned Dan Parks, Ed
Moore, and Dana Coin, a fresh-
man last season. He is most wor-
ried about his linebacking.
Offense is also going to be
somewhat of a problem with the
loss of Ron Johnson. "We're los-
ing 1400 yards and 5.5 yards per
carry. Anytime a back averages
over 4.0, he's doing great," Schem-
bechleF noted.
The hardest spot to fill will of
course be at tailback where
Johnson starred. Schembechler
said, "Michigan could afford to
build their offense around John-
son because he was so durable. Be-
cause of him, they were able to
go with a wide flanker and the
two running backs in an "I" form-
ation. I'd like to bring that flank-,
er into a wing position so that he
could carry the ball as well as
catch passes."
Continuing to discuss his offen-
sive plans, he.said, "We're going to
have to be more versatile t h i s
season without Johnson. We won't
be running the "I" exclusively.
He seemed t think .the most
promising runner, to replace
Johnson might be Garvie Craw.
"I want to get a good look at
Craw because he never ran the
ball last season."

0 SOUTH BEND - Johnny Dee, Notre Dame basketball coach,
said yesterday that he will quit the job after two more seasons.
Dee's contract expires at the end of the 1970-71 seasons. He said
he would not seek an extension at that time.
"My decision is irrevocable," he said. "In fairness to myself, my
family and Notre Dame, I feel I should move on then. This is as far
as I want to go in coaching."

-Daily-Eric Pergeaux
ALL-AMERICAN Ron Johnson bucks the line in last season's Michigan State game. New football
coach Bo Schembechler's biggest problem in the upcoming season will be finding a replacement
for Johnson. Because the Michigan offense was built around Johnson and because Johnson will be
impossible to replace, Schembechler plans to emphasize defense.

ed are Lance Schefler, running
back, John Gabler, wingback, and
Paul Staroba, wing or split end.
The coach would not name a
definite starting quarterback, but
he did admit that Don Moorhead
is the leading candidate. As is the
case for all his gridders, Schem-
bechler has much studying of per-
formances to do before construct-
ing a starting lineup.
He wound up his discussion of
offensive expectations by talking

about his line. He called Jim Man-
dich his best end because "he's
tough." He said the tackle slot
looks good with Dan Dierdorf
showing the most promise, but he
liked the experience at guard and
thought that "Jack Harprig would
get first shot." Center, a position
requiring both quickness a n d
strength,.will be the line's weakest
spot. He does, however, plan to
"try Tim Killian because he's such
a competitior."

And now the Wolverine baseball
team has been ranked thirteenth
in the nation by the AP. The poll-
sters sense of timing is amazing.
The loss of outfielder Elliott
Maddox, who signed a professional
contract with the Detroit Tigers;
and pitchers Dave Renkiewicz,
Jack Hurley, and Steve Evans, can
be only ill luck for the Wolver-
Maddox was the team's leading
hitter at a .393. mark. His .467
league average led the Big Ten
batsmen. Renkiewicz, Hurley, and
Evans were to form tie core of the
mound staff. Their ineligibility
has placed the burden of victory
on a young and very untried
pitching crew.
Coach Moby Benedict, in. his
seventh season as baseball coach,
is plagued by the same problems
he faced last year.-
The Wolverines began last sea-
son with a stable infield, a solid
catching corps, and a pitching
staff and outfield which lacked
depth. This year the infield is
stronger, the catching is in cap-
able hands, but once again t h e
pitching and the outfield are
question marks.
Themoundsmen are young and
strong, but inexperienced. Senior
Bill Krug has made very few var-
sity appearances. Junior left
hander Gerry Christman appeared
six times last season -and record-

ed a 2-1 record, thus grabbing the
distinction of the m'ost varsity
It is on the untried pitchers-
Dan Fife, Jim Burton, Tom Fles-1
zar and John Ritter-that the
Wolverine hopes rest. Fife, a
standout on the basketball team,
has had little time to prepare for
the baseball season's beginning.
The other question mark, the
outfield, is thin. Rich Orr, wh o
Saw action at second base last
year, is returning to full duty in
the outfield. John Kraft a n d
John Arvai are also senior letter-
men who will see a lot of action.
Sophomore Mike Bowen is pre-
senting a strong bid for the cen-
terfield slot.
Michigan's infield is t i g h t.
Third baseman, Glenn Redmon,
anchors the veteran quartet. Jim
Hosler, leading hitter of the re-
turnees at .324, was outstanding
at first base. He .'handled 253
chances and committed only three

ed on 14 doubles plays last season,*

Captain Pete Titone, one-time
standout at Cochise Junior Col-
lege in Douglas, Arizona, f ill s
the void at catcher left by the
graduation of last year's captain,
Doug Nelson. Sophomore Tom

Lunstedt, the freshman squad's
leading hitter last spring, is a
capable back-up man.
Two other sophomores, who will
be counted on highly by coach
Benedict are Mike Rafferty, a
basketball teammate of Fife's,
and Mark Carrow. Rafferty, a
shortstop, and Carrow, a third
sacker, will have a difficult time
breaking into the veteran infield.
Rafferty has been working in the
outfield, while Carrow has been
trying his hand at second.
Benedict named Minnesota and
Michigan State as the title con-
tenders. "We're a good fielding
team, and I know we're going to
improve our hitting. We have a
fine crop of sophomores, especially
among the pitchers," he said.
Maybe thirteenth will even turn
out to be, lucky.

Schembechler went on to dis-
cuss his ideas about the neces-
sarily strict life of a college foot-
ball player. "When a boy comes
to Michigan, he's a different guy.
He has to have restrictions. I feel
that he's here first to get an edu-
cation, second to play football,
and whatever's third had better
not interfere with the first two."
As for specific training policies,
he said, "I'd like all sophomores
and freshmen to live in University
Housing. When they come to
school, all the boys want to be-
long to a group, but there can't
be any more important group to
the player than the football team.
"I'm not against boys living in
fraternities, but they ought to
wait until their junior year. I just
can't see athletes living in apart-
ments because I want everyone to
have threesquare meals every day.
You just aren't going to get that
in an apartment."
Schembechler concluded by as-
sessing the team's chances f o r
matching last year's record. "The
toughest job I have is trying to
figure out how we'll measure up
agaisnt our opponents. Next sea-
son we have a real hard sched-
ule, Northwestern, Indiana, Navy,
California, and Duke are replac-
ed by Iowa, Purdue, Vanderbilt,
Washington and Missouri. Mis-
souri will definitely be one of the
top five teams in the country."
As for the Big Ten all he would
say was, "Let's let Ohio and Mich-
igan fight it out."
