By HENRY ENGELHARDT
ONE MAN, Bo Schembechler, is
responsible for every move Michi-
gan makes on the field. Resting on his
shoulders are the actions, good or bad,
of his players. He is responsible to
hundreds of thousands of fans, students
and alumni, one athletic director and
his own personal pride. Sometimes it's
a pain in the neck.
After nine seasons Schembechler's
record at Michigan is a brilliant 86-13-3.
However he has not won a bowl game or
national championship and receives a
great deal of criticism for these
failures. "The fear of every coach,"
Schembechler says, "is losing.
"You know Michigan football is big,"
he explains. "It's a big time operation
and we've got to be careful that we keep
it in its proper perspective. We're
playing with college kids. 'That's what
makes it great. The pro game doesn't
give you the enthusiasm of the college
game."
WINNING IS OF course the object,
but there's more than just winning
games to Schembechler football. The
result of his conceptual scheme is
victory.
It's important to Schembechler to
"have a program that the players take
pride in and enjoy playing," he says.
"And coaching them well so that they
can perform well-having them get
something out of it other than just
winning games."
What is this elusive "something" of
which Schembechler, now in his 35th
year of either playing or coaching,
speaks of?
"It's a very, very difficult game to
play. Arduous and tough. It takes a
certain kind of guy to play. A guy who
likes to be challenged," the thick
shouldered coach explains.
"IT'S TOUGH physically and
mentally," Schembechler adds. "And
these kids are playing under a lot of
pressure-we're a nationally ranked
team, playing before big crowds, and so
you have to teach some perspective in
what you are doing. You don't just
throw them out there to win and forget
about it."
Schembechler expects his players to
work hard ("There's no way for
success if you don't work," he says)
and earning a starting spot should be on
the mind of each of them. "I don't want
a satisfied third teamer," the former
offensive tackle at Miami of Ohio notes.
"They all want to start.
"But by the same token,twhen it
comes down to game time they just
want to win the game," Schembechler
says. It's this delicate balance between
the drive of the individual and goals of
the team that a coach must make sure
does not tip over.
One of the reasons for
Schembechler's success (126-30-6

career coaching record) is his ability to
get his players to fight like hell against
each other all week and then play like a
team of brothers on Saturday.
"EVERYBODY WANTS ambitiously
to take credit and improve their

"... once you get into your 50's
and you're still chasing around
some cow town for some 17-year-
old kid, you just come to a point
when you say 'I don't think I
ought to be doing this.' "

position on the team," Schembechler
says. "There's a great misconception
that the talent here is so much greater
than anywhere else. It's not.
"There may be a few spots-I don't
think there are too many Rick Leachs,
Harlan Hucklebys or Russell Davis'
around," he says of his senior
backfield, "but there at 95 football
players on every team.
"The biggest problem is keeping
them motivated," says Schembechler,
who for the last three years has been
upset at least once during the regular
season ('75-home ties with Stanford
and Baylor, '76-loss to Purdue,
'77-shutout by Minnesota).
But Schembechler motivates his
squad more consistently than most of
his peers and the result is his
outstanding winning percentage.
"Highly motivated teams are hard to
beat," he says. "I want to send a highly
motivated team out on- the field every
time. But you can't shoot for 11 games
and expect to get it. Maybe I- should go
to biorhythms," he jokes.
"You've got to pick the right place at
the right time," Schembecler explains.
"You've got to have the proper goals,
the proper objectives for every game,
whether you're playing an obvious
victory or one that's going to be a
battle."

to give us leadership and you've got to
play great football, you've got to have
your greatest year. This program has
been built through the years and it
perpetuates itself because there is a
great deal of pride."
Just as soon as each season.ends
Schembechler and his aides turn to
recruiting to keep their program
moving. "It's a big part of the game,"
Schembechler says, "but it's become so
overwhelming that some (teams) can't
do it the way it's supposed to be done."
How is it supposed to be done?
"Legally," says Schembechler.
"Recruiting is devastating. I mean you
never know how you're going to end up
doing.
"Recruiting drove out (former Notre
Dame coach Ara) Parseghian, it drove
out Broyles (former Arkansas coach
Frank) and Royal (former Texas coach
Darrell).. It drove out a lot of good
coaches," Schembechler notes.
"Because once you get into your 50's
and you're still chasing around some
cow town for some 17-year-old kid, you
just come to a point where you say 'I
don't think I ought to be doing this.' "
What keeps Schembechler, a former
Parseghian assistant, going? "Well, for
some strange reasoif I like kids better
than I do grown-ups. Now I don't know
what the hell's the matter with Me, but

FOR EITHER AN obvious victory or
