Michigan coach Bo Schembechler is
one hard man to please. You'd think af-
ter his football team ran up 537 yards
total offense on the way- to a 31-21 Big
Ten win over Minnesota last Saturday,
he'd be atleast somewhat pleased. But
no, not Bo.
"There's no question 535 (sic) yards
is a lot," Schembechler said yesterday

deep down, I'm not satisfied that was a1
good offensive effort. We just haven't
put our offense together like we'd like to
see it - where we drive with the foot-t
ball, make the plays and do it consisten-
CONSISTENLY seems to be the key
word here. That's what the Wolverines
have lacked on offense all season.
While Michigan has CONSISTEN-
TLY run up huge yardage totals game
after game, they haven't CONSISTEN-
TLY crossed the goal line.
Michigan has accumulated 2,536 total
yards in six games, an average of 428
yards per game. Yet, from all that yar-1
dage, the Wolverines have reached the
end zone just 21 times. True, they've
won five of the six contests, but what
upsets Schembechler is the team's
failure to block and execute properly
throughout an entire game.
Against Minnesota, sophomore
tailback Butch Woolfolk rushed for a
phenomenal 194 yards on 24 carries
while senior fullback Lawrence Reid
was equally impressive with 179 yards
on the day. Both claimed the excellent
blocking of the offensive line was the
reason for their success. But Schem-
bechler said yesterday that was not so.
"You won't believe this, but we didn't
block well at all," Schembechler stated
matter-of-factly, "I'd like to tell you we
ripped holes in their defense, but our
blocking percentage was not good."
While admitting that Woolfolk's first
touchdown run (a 58-yarder in the first
quarter) was "well-blocked," Schem-
bechler insisted that "on Woolfolk's 41-
yard (touchdown) run (in the fourth
quarter), three guys had a shot at him.
He ran right through them."
Schembechler was also displeased
with the number of times Michigan tur-'
ned the ball over to the Golden Gophers.
B. J. Dickey and John Wangler each
threw an interception while the running
backs fumbled three times, giving the
ball up twice.
Wangler's picked-off toss on the
second play of the second half par-
ticularly bothered Schembechler. The
Blue defense stopped the Gophers on
the next series of plays, backing them
into a third and 44 situation on the

strength of a pair of Stu Harris back-
field tackles.
But rookie Anthony Carter proceeded
to drop the ensuing punt, giving Min-
nesota the ball on the Michigan 32-yard
line. From there the Gophers went in to
score their second touchdown of the
day, only the first time this year the
Wolverine defense has given up more
than a single touchdown. Meanwhile,
Minnesota quarterback Mark Carlson
was on his way to a 339-yard day in the
"It's not being a tactical football
team to throw an interception on first
down," said Schembechler. "We stop-
ped them, then fumble the punt and
we're called for illegal use of hands.
