Y = out of the Rlue
By Geoff Larcom
Canham packs 'em in...
.Bo no choke artist
S INCE THE DAYS I first proudly wore the wrinkled green uniform of
Troop 101 to usher Wolverine football dates, I've never quite understood
the Saturday phenomenon known as the Michigan game.
It's a spectacle unmatched in collegiate sports. Simply to watch college
kids knock heads in contests where all too often the outcome is predictable,
enough people to occupy every home in Ann Arbor converge each Saturday
on the bowl that Yost built.
Why do they, excuse me, why do we, do it?
That's a toughie.
The staggering attendance figures rung up by the Canham-
Schembechler gridiron regime certainly aren't attributable to the expec-
tation of a closely fought game.
Schembechler's teams have made a cliche, of the home rout. The ex-
cellence consistently put on the field by Bo has resulted in games where the
outcome is usually obvious before the first half ends.
An obvious rebuttal here would be to point to the close call Michigan had
last year with Arizona (21-17), or to the other scares some lesser teams have
thrown into the Wolverines since Schembechler took over. But these oc-
casions have been rare, as the awesome regular season stats (96-9-3) of Bo's
reign point out.
And they can't explain why 104,000 bodies showed up for the Duke game
last year, in which the Wolverines drowned the poorly-regarded Blue Devils,
52-0. Or why 100,000 attended the Wake Forest game in 1976, when Michigan
ho-hummed out a 31-0 win.
No, it hasn't been in hopes that Micigan would eke out a last second win
that we've engorged the big bowl on football Saturdays.
-Nor has it been to cheer on the home team, to lose oneself in the frenzy of
the contest. Aside from the titanic season-ending battles waged by Schem-
bechler's squads and the vintage teams of Woody Hayes, the "roar" raised
by 100,000 throats in Ann Arbor in the fall is modest.
It's incredibly quiet in there, in fact. The crowd for last year's opening
shutout of Illinois may have set a record for the largest crowd with the
meekest voice.
So why the Saturday pilgrimage to Ann Arbor?
For that, we can thank Don Canham, who quite simply, has turned the
rites of fall into a "happening."
He's made Michigan football an "in" thing for Southeastern Michigan-
ders to do.
So "in" is Michigan football, in fact, it hardly matters the games are of-
ten lopsided and boring. This is what the fans have come to expect as well as
accept.
We come in droves to view a known, high quality product, one we're sure
will put on a fine show. Much like a stage performance, Wolverine games
have qualities one expects to reappear time and time again.
A hard-nosed, swarming defense, along with a potent running at-
tack-these are the staples fans expect, and usually receive.
And along with this Wolverine excellence Canham peddles the fall
weather, the town, and the pregame tailgating. He asks: Do you want to
miss out on this when it happens only six or seven times a year?
And we say, "Hell no!" and hop on the bandwagon.
That's why the man is going to fill up the stadium this fall for one North-
western game, and may even fill it up for a game between Slippery Rock and
Shippensburg State.
The Schembechler Syndrome
Another seeming paradox in Michigan football also is due for reexam-
ination: the "Schembechler Syndrome," the choke label which some apply
to Bo and his troops.
It's said Michigan can't win the "big one," that the easy teams fall like
so many wooden soldiers, but let a tough squad take the field and ...
But that generalization just doesn't wash. What could have been bigger
than the 1969 24-12 upset of Ohio State? That was, you remember, a number
