WILL BE OUT 4-6 WEEKS
Pufek runs into
hard luck again
By ERNIE DUNBAR
With one of the most important
ames of the season approaching this
ieekend, the last thing Bo
chembechler wanted to worry about
ias replacing injured players.
Yet that is one of' Schembechler's
pore immediate tasks as he prepares
or the showdown with Notre Dame in
outh Bend this Saturday.
MOST prominent among those who
;ailed to survive the Illinois victory is
ffensive tackle Bill Dufek, who'll miss
rom four to six weeks with a break of
he fifth metatarsal bone near the little
oe on his left foot.
"The injury to Dufek is not the same
one as he broke last year,"
Schembechler said, referring to the
injury prior to the 1977 season, forcing
the 1976 consensus All-Big Ten tackle to
miss the entire schedule.
Schembechler explained that, left
guard John Arbeznik knocked his man
into Dufek, causing the injury. "He'll
have a walking cast for four weeks and
then it will take him a couple weeks to
get back into shape."
THE INJURY to Dufek is especially a
tough blow to the offensive line, since
that is one aspect of the Illinois game
Schembechler was dissatisfied with.
"We didn't throw well, we just didn't
have the protection. The protection is
what makes me mad," Bo said as he
analyzed the 31-0 Michigan victory.
With Dufek out, senior Jon Giesler
will move to Dufek's strong tackle
position, with' sophomore Dan
Kwiatkowski filling in at Giesler's
quick tackle slot.
"This injury is not as hard to come
back from as the one last year," said
Schembechler. "We hope to have him
(Dufek) back. I think we can be more
optimistic about him coming back than
we were a year ago."~
Asked whatrtheloss of Dufek would
do to the strength of the offensive line,
Schembechler said, "I don't know that.
It all depends on how the younger guys
THE OTHER casualties were not as
serious as Dufek. Tight end Gene
Johnson has two sore knees after a
series of mishaps. "Johnson was
clipped on a punt, then Huckleby got
messed up on a pass pattern and hit him
on the knee. Leach ran right up his legs
on one play," Schembechler said of his
tight end who managed one reception
good for 15 yards against Illinois. "We
hope to have him, but I'm not sure at
Another member of the offensive line,
center Steve Nauta suffered a sprained
ankle but doesn'tappear to be serious.
"We're optimistic about him coming
back unless something happens,"
Two running backs incurred injuries..
as well. Tailback Harlan Huckleby had
a pinched nerve in his neck, but will be
able to play against Notre Dame.
Huckleby's backup, Stanley Edwards,
has a sprained ankle, but should see
action if needed.

Detroit judge makes
Bo's nemesis . ..
.. aDevine spoiler
SCHEMBECHLER made it clear yesterday just how much Saturday's
clash with Notre Dame means to his football team. "This is the most
important non-conference game we've played at Michigan-period," he said
With that statement, Schembechler removed any doubts about where
this game ranks on this year's schedule. While this game indeed is the finest
early test a Michigan team has faced since Schembechler begin in 1969, deep
down inside there must be another challenge for the head coach.
Since arriving in Ann Arbor, Schembechler has managed a near perfect
24-1-2 non-conference record. He suffered that single defeat during his
freshman campaign when the Missouri Tigers ripped Michigan 40-17.
And guess who coached the Tigers? It was the same coach who'll be op-
posite Schembechler Saturday-Dan Devine.
Yes, Dan Devine is the only coach in 27 non-conference games to inflict
defeat upon Bo. Come Saturday in South Bend before a partisan home crowd
of 59,075, Devine has another chance to further mar Bo's illustrious record,
If you think that hasn't registered in Bo's mind more than once, you'd better
Informed at his weekly press luncheon that Devine's Missouri team had
scored more points on Bo than any other team, Schembechler said jokingly,
"Nowvyou guys are really pissing me off. God, that's only 10 years ago!"
Some of the writers asked Bo whether he has gone back and looked at
any of the films from that Missouri defeat to see if he could spot any
coaching weaknesses Devine may possess. "Hell no. This isn't baseball.
Football's changed in ten years."
'A well-endowed team'
The one thing Schembechler admitted hadn't changed about Notre
Dame during that time is that they continued to win, and win, and win. Last
year the Irish went 11-1, losing to Mississippi, and laying claim to the
mythical national championship.
"They're a well endowed team," remarked Bo. "They've got a good
quarterback, good backs and linebackers. They're a talented team. They're
one of the top teams in the nation, don't you forget that."
While Bo lauded his opponents, the questions persisted as to how this
talented a team could manage to lose its opening game, at home, to
Missouri. The Tigers were no powerhouse last year. They went 4-7 last year
and were inexperienced entering the contest with the Irish. Still they
managed to pull out a 3-0 upset, ending Notre Dame's streak of 131 games in
which they had not been shut out. It also ended their winning streak at ten,
tied for longest in the nation with Alabama.
So does all this make Schembechler think any less of his opponents.
"They (Notre Dame) should have beat Missouri. There's no question there.
The circumstances had to be absolutely right for them (Missouri) to win that
Since that embarrassing loss, Notre Dame has been preparing solely for
the Wolverines, thanks to a week off this past weekend. Two weeks to wait for
anything is a long time. But when your football team has been humiliated in
front of the rabid alumni and home fans, you can be certain that those inter-
vening practice sessions have not been a joyful experience.
Training on grass
Does Bo think that added practice will help or hinder Notre Dame? "I
don't know. I've never been in that situation. We've never had two weeks
off." One thing's for sure: The extra practice without a game to worry about
couldn't have hurt Michigan's chances any, considering that Notre Dame
Stadium has natural turf, a surface the Wolverines have gone 1-4 on the past
"We've worked out on it (grass 40-50 per cent of the time," Schembech-
ler said of his previous workouts. "That percentage will probably be higher
this week. We'll train a little more on grass, but your overall routine doesn't
change that much."
The practices may be virtually the same in nature, but you can rest
assured that the intensity will hit levels like none of the Michigan players
have ever experienced this early in the season.
"I think they're looking forward to it, there's no question about that,"
Schembechler said of his team's reaction to the game. "We all know they are
a national football power."
But so is Michigan, which means just one thing: For the first time in
Bo's ten year reign Michigan fans will be treated to a real non-conference
game instead of some of the charades we've been forced to endure in recent

DETROIT (AP) - A federal judge
ruled yesterday that the National

requirements for teams that sign free

Judge Robert DeMascio declared

The compensation rule imposes a
"perpetual restriction on a player's
inherent right to freely contract for his
services," DeMascio said.
The judge cited a suit filed by former
Baltimore Colt player John Mackey
against the National Football League,
which resulted in a court ruling against
the NFL's so-called Rozelle Rule. That
rule imposed similar penalties on
teams which signed free agents.
