Scent of roses .. .
. Bo smells it
Tp HEIR FRAGRANCE IS in the air and Bo Schembechler smells them.
' You know what he smells as well as I do-Blue roses again.
In the Michigan-locker room after the Illinois game, played in Cham-
paign, Bo, as usual, wanted to know the scores of some other games. But he
* broke with tradition and desired to learn the score of the USC game. In ad-
,dition, he asked who would go to the Rose Bowl if Stanford won the remain-
,. der of their games. You see, Stanford had tied USC the previous week.
The answer was given by a Big Ten official, who remarked that USC
* <would to due to a power percentage formula. In short, Bo was curious as to
who his opponent would be in Pasadena.
This repartee is not meant to imply that he has forgotten upcoming op-
ponents, nor neglected the fact that Ohio State is demolishing opponents left
''and right. Instead, Bo seems to have the gut feeling that his Wolverines will
overcome them all and visit his famous New Year's hangout.
I must agree with them wholeheartedly on this matter. No matter how
C' "you look at it, Bo has his team once again right where he wants them.
Sure they lost to Notre Dame, and it was a heartbreaking loss at that.
But is was probably a good loss as although bad for national prestige, it un-
doutedly made his forces realize they havemuch further to go.
And it is that much further that they have gone. They have won five
gamies in a row, keep rdunning up impressive offensive totals (their apparent
weakness) and seem to dominate each game they are in.
l For example, in the Illinois encounter, after a terrible first half, Bo's
n ridders simply rolled over a pesky Illini contingent. The Wolverines, right
off the bat in the second half, forced the turnover that set the tone for the rest
iof the half.
Several plays later, the first TD was scored. And just a few minutes
later, another touchdown was tallied. On the Wolverines third touchdown,
they went for the first down on fourth and five at the Illini 30. Michigan's
blockers simply crushed the Illinois defense and Butch Woolfolk sailed into
the end zone from the 30.
It looked so effortless, as they rolled up the score. But thenagain, winning
always looks so easy for Michigan. Every year you get the feeling Michigan
5vill come out on top.
Wolvlerine seasons appear to follow a distinct pattern. After some mid-
season slump or snag, Michigan becomes invincible in the Big Ten: And in
!,easier games like Illinois the Wolverines play well enough to win. Against
Minnesota this year, although the Gophers drew within. three at one point,
: you just knew Bo's boys would come up with the big play-and they did as
1,Woolfolk sprinted 41 yards for the clinching touchdown.
The Wolverines are powerful, again. Their defense is as strong as it has
rver been. Curtis Greer, Ron Simpkins and Mike Jolly are some of the finest
,players in the nation.
And now, the offense is in gear somewhat. B.J. Dickey has established
rt himself as the number one quarterback. The talents of Anthony Carter,
d,.Ralph Clayton and Doug Marsh are unlimited. Bo's offensive line has
matured considerably, enabling two of the Big Ten's finest tailbacks to run
Stanley Edwards is hurt and may be unable to play against Indiana so
-all Bo does is call on Woolfolk. He has been real shoddy the last two weeks
,with TD runs of 58, 41, 30, 1 and 1.
Blue wins look effortless
' But Michigan's winning always seems so blase, and Schembechler
Xouldn't agree more. In yesterday's press luncheon, he said, "all of us at
JMichigan are a little bit spoiled. After beating Illinois 27-7, they (the players)
didn't say a thing. It was like they just came off the practice field. Anytime
;you beat a team in its own backyard, it's a big win."
p "Everything we do negatively is magnified. You say Michigan wins by
0 points and then you (the media) say we've struggled," Bo continued.
# Bo is right. Michigan is spoiled and so is he. In a telephone hookup at the
*ncheon with Indiana head coach, talkative Lee Corso, Bo had this to say.
Don't try to con them (the writers). You know if you win your last four
dames, you'll go to the Rose Bowl. If you Win three out of four, it's a good
season," Bo concluded.
Bo is not conning anybody. He knows he's got a very good team and is
pretty sure where they'll end up. There seems to be no other way for him.
So amid all the controversy around him this season, one thing remains
clear. He is one fantastic coach who knows no other way but to win as his
teams do year in and year out.
But he won't say he has a great team as Michigan State's Darryl Rogers
has said because, Bo is spoiled. He is spoiled to the point of not reavping.
satisfaction until he wins his last five games. I have the feeling he'll win of
those five.
And especially since Stanford can't smell roses.
