HAWKEYES MUSTER ONLY 61 YARDS
clue defense mauls Iowa

(Continued from Page 1)
ot to be outdone, the defense put on
how of their own. The Wolverines
I starting Iowa quarterback Bill
an to -23 yards rushing, which
n't too bad compared to his backup,
e Gales, who lost 40.
hen the Hawkeyes gained their
ial first down with three minutes left
he first quarter, the fans gave the
n a standing ovation. It was to be
of the few times all day Iowa fans
something to cheer about - sin-
Ply or sarcastically.
idicative of the luck that was deser-
Iowa, Michigan fumbled the ball at
Hawkeye 45-yard line early in the
>nd quarter. It was Iowa's deepest
etration until late in the game. Ad-
Sinsult to alnost mortal injury,
back Jon Lazar coughed up the ball
the next play and Michigan's Ron
ipkins recovered.
ut it was of no consequence since the
verines were ahead at that stage by
>oints. Michigan got there with two
utiful touchdowns in the second
rter. The first was a bomb from

Leach to Alan Mitchell for 36 yards. The
wide receiver leaped and caught the
ball over his shoulder.
Just before halftime Leach again
went to the air for a score. First he
faked a pass towards the endzone, then
he threw to Roosevelt Smith coming out
of the backfield. Smith raced down the
sidelines and just made it into the cor-
ner before being run out of bounds. The
24 points at the half were one more than
the Wolverines totalled in last year's
game.,
Schembechler voiced his usual post-
game comments ranging from praise to
the vanquished enemy - ". . Iowa is a
good defensive team and underrated
only because they have not been win-
ning" - to admiration for his own
conquering heroes - "We protected
Rick(Leach) pretty well. He did have to
flush out a couple of times when the.
defensive end came down on him, but
he did a good job."
Schembechler also noted that Leach
is doing a more than adequate job
without having to play a full 60 minutes.
"Rick has not played into the fourth

quarter in any of our last three games,"
said Bo. Leach really hasn't had to. In
the span since the debacle versus

Michigan State, the Wolverines have
pounded three conference foes b a
cumulative total of 10840.

WOLVERINE quarterback Rick Leach sidesteps a diving tackle by Iowa Hawkeye
defensive end Pat Dean during the first quarter of yesterday's game. Leach went
on to pass for two touchdowns and closed to within one of the NCAA touchdown
record (73). Michigan won the game handily, 34-0, to stay alive in the tight Big
Ten race.

Special to the Daily
IOWA CITY-Michigan may have
received something of a break from the
Iowa Hawkeyes yesterday in Kinnick
Stadium.
Despite the lopsided 34-0 victory the
Wolverines (7-1) posted over the (1-7)
Hawkeyes, Michigan looked far from
perfect as the final score may tend to
indicate.
It may be possible to commit five
penalties for 58 yards against a weak
offensive team such as .Iowa. The
Hawkeyes managed 61 total offensive
yards to Michigan's 371 yards. Iowa's
total includes negative four yards
rushing.
BUT WHAT HAPPENS when
Michigan faces conference leader Pur-
due in two weeks? Those penalties sud-
denly turn into -major mistakes when
the opponent is capable of scoring with
some regularity.

In the case of the Hawkeyes however,
the Wolverines had little to worry
about. Iowa committed seven penalties
of their own for 63 yards and lost two of
their four fumbles while Michigan fum-
bled the ball on four occasions, losing it
three times.
Bo Schembechler is well aware of
that fact and the Michigan coach
doesn't like the prospects of his team
committing turnovers on a regular
basis one bit.
"THE PENALTIES and fumbles
bother me very much," said Schem-
bechler as he tried to analyze what
caused his team to turn the ball over
repeatedly and give Iowa the potential
toget back into the game.
"We're not that type of a team," he
continued. "Those mistakes disturb me
to no end."
While Schembechler was com-
plaining of his team's sloppy perfor-
mance, he still came out on the winning
end of the score. On the other side of the
field, Iowa's coach Bob Commings
realized that his team had the chances
to convert Michigan's mistakes into
possible scores, but came up with

nothing.
"We both made mistakes but we
weren't able to overcome ours," the fif-
th year coach commented. "There were
a couple of fumbles we almost had and
couldn't come up with them."
TWO OF MICHIGAN'S penalties
came in the first half. The first was a
five yarder as kicker Bryan Virgil boot-
ted the ball out of bounds following the
Wolverines first touchdown by tailback
Roosevelt Smith. The other came with
just a minute gone in the second quar-
ter to give Iowa their second first down
of the game on a 15 yard roughing the
passer penalty.
Then came the second half and three
Michigan penalties. "The trouble with a
game like this is that you getup by 24
points and you don't play good football
after that," said Schembechler
referring to the fact that the Wolverines
held a comfortable 24-0 margin heading
into the third quarter.
"I don't know whether I can survive
all those mistakes. The 15 yard,
penalties, the missed executions . .
Bo said in disgust.
THE WORST SERIES of errors bet-
ween the two teams came at the start of,
the third quarter.

The Grand Rapids Press says Bursley prob-
ably knows more about eduction than any
other elected state official. Bursley is also
endorsed by the Ann Arbor News, Saginaw
News, Kalamazoo Gazette and Ypsilanti
Press. The Oakland Press says Bursley has
known the University all his life and knows
more about the politics and financing of
education than perhaps anyone else in the
state.

Three plays into the stanza following
Michigan's kickoff, the Hawkeyes were
penalized five yards for delay of game.
That stalled the drive, giving Michigan
the . ball on the Iowa 46 yard line
following the punt.
TAILBACK SMITH, who rushed for
70 yards on the day to lead Michigan,
fumbled on the first, play and Iowa
recovered. Hawkeye fullback Jon
Lazar fumbled the ball back on the very
next play. Michigan received an illegal
procedure penalty three plays later,
and then fumbled it back to Iowa four
plays later.
"I don't really have any explanation
for it," said quarterback Rick Leach
who fell three yards short of the 2000
yard career rushing mark. "That (the
fumbles and penalties) is probably
more a credit to the Iowa defense
because they can hit with anyone in the
league."
With a similar opponent this week in
0-8-1 Northwestern, Schembechler ad-
mits his team must fight against
making the game mistakes they did
yesterday when they make their final
preparations for the clash with Purdue.
"The sloppiness of what we did is just
not right," said Schembechler.

What Wolverine cross country coach
Ron Warhurst most feared came to pass
yesterday. Wisconsin, running a superb
race, completely destroyed the field in
the 64th running of the Big Ten Cross
Country Championships yesterday at In-
diana.
Placing four of their runners in the top
five, Wisconsin was a clear-cut winner
with 24 points. Michigan was second with
70, followed by Minnesota, 86; Indiana
88; and Illinois 109. Rounding out the
field were Michigan State, Ohio State,
Iowa, Northwestern, and Purdue.
Steve Lacy, the favorite to take top in
dividual honors, did so with a time o
23:50. Rounding out the top five were In
diana freshman Jim Spivey and Lacy'
teammates Randy Jackson, Jeff Ran
dolph, and Jim Stintzi.
Michigan got an excellent performan
ce from Steve Elliott, who placed eight
Dan Heikkinen was ninth, Dave Lewi
13th, Gerry Donakowski 16th, and Dou
Sweazey 24th.
