Defense now rules


All season long Michigan Coach Bo
Schembechler has been. complaining
about the inconsistent, unpredictable
Wolverine offense. But, now that the big
plays are developing and the offense is
beginning to roll, along comes Bo to an-
nounce that he's sorry, but it's the
defense, not the offense that's going to
win or lose the Big Ten title this year.
"If you really analyze all three teams
going for the championship (Michigan,
Purdue and Ohio State), all have ex-
cellent defensive stats," Schembechler
said at yesterday's weekly press lun-
cheon. "That's why they're in the
Schembechler's point seems valid as

evidenced by the weekly stats released
by the Big Ten Service Bureau. The
Buckeyes currently lead the conference
in scoring defense, having given up just
37 points in six games for a 6.1 points
per game average. Michigan ranks
second in that category with a 12.6 ppg
average, while the Boilermakers stand
fifth with a 17.0 ppg average.
Ohio State was also tops in pass
defense before last weekend's 44-7
crushing of Illinois, while Purdue held
down top honors in both rushing defense
and total defense.
Michigan has fared well against the
rush, second in the league before
Saturday's 54-0 humiliation of Wiscon-
sin,, but the Blue gridders don't have
much to brag about when it comes to

stopping the pass. They ranked a lowly
eighth in pass defense before the con-
test with the Badgers. Schembechler
explained why there is such a
"We're eighth in pass defense
because we're tops against the rush,"
the Michigan mentor. stated flatly.
"We're stopping their running game, so
teams are coming in and throwing a lot
against us."
Michigan went into this season with a
defense full of high hopes and staffed by
a load of veterans including a pair of fif-
th year men in tackles Curtis Greer and
Dale Keitz. The defenders started off
with a bang, holding the first five op-
ponents to 12 points or less each time
But then along came a pair of top-
notch passers, Minnesota's Marl

who spoiled the fun as their teams

Michigan's graduate club concluded its regular season in grand fashion
Saturday, blasting Lawrence Tech, 7-2, at Elbel Field for its second win in
seven outings.
Arthur Fallick's pair of second half goals helped the Blue booters break
open a match tied 2-2 at the intermission. Alan McFayden, Nuno Alves and
Ron Bardach scored one goal each in the final session.
Don Burch opened the scoring for Michigan early in the first half.
Another Wolverine goal, this time from Adnan Ilerci, was offset by two
Lawrence tallies.
Lawrence started the match with seven players, compared to the stan-
dard 11 for Michigan. However, the Blue attack failed to capitalize on the
manpower advantage, prompting player-coach Art Anderson to remark,
"How can you get excited about a match when you've got 11 players and
they've got seven?"
-The grads are one of three teams (the Michigan undergrads and the
University of Detroit are the others) which have been invited to the Eastern
Invitational Tournament, hosted by EMU this Saturday. The grad club's fir-
st match will be held at 11 a.m. against the rival undergrads.
Anderson believes the first-round Michigan pairing was not sheer coin-
cidence. "They (EMU) probably didn't want an all-Michigan final, and that
may well have happened," he said.
Anderson, whose team lost to the undergrads, 3-1, last month, won't
make any prediction on Saturday's outcome. "We're going to have to mark
them individually this time," he said. "Last time we didn't do that in the
second half."
The undergrads, 8-2-1, suffered their first loss since October 13 Thursday
when Spring Arbor blanked Michigan, 3-0, at Fuller Park.
The contest was originally set for Wednesday evening on the Tartan
Turf, but was rescheduled because it conflicted with Intramural football.
Coach Steve Olsen and several of his players were a bit upset over the incon-

their regular season Wednesday at Central Michigan.
Michigan's 'A' team evened its record at 3-3-1 Saturday, annihilating the
Cincinnati Wolfhound Rugby Club, 16-0, behind scores by Bill Chung and
Lenny Pitt.
The triumph was Michigan's first ever over the powerful squad from the
Queen City.
The 'B' team, however, lost to Cincinnati, 16-14, as its record slipped to 4-
