It's strike two Bo. *. *
... and you re battn
JUST OVER A WEEK AGO, this column was devoted to the
faults of Bo Schembechler's football program at Michigan.
Schembechler's neglect of the personal side of his players was
the main issue with the Mark McCabe incident, merely em-
phasizing the point.
The McCabe story received contrasting reactions from two
obviously different people. One critique was offered by Coach
Schembechler and the other, surprisingly, was given by a
University professor.
Reviewing the original problem, McCabe's situation
boils down to, this: He is a walk-on kicking specialist cur-
rently trying to make the Wolverine squad and is having
a hell of a time trying to succeed. As mentioned before,
McCabe suffered a serious head injury while playing foot-
ball in grade school but has continued kicking despite his
inability to endure the game's warlike contact.
With this brief summary at hand, let's look at what hap-
pened in response.
Last Wednesday I received a letter from John Trytten of
the School of Education. It read like this:

The results enable the Wol-

Falcons' home opener.
After completely outclassing
their hosts in the opener, Michi-

eighth-place hitter Tim Pettor-

doubleheader, and the results were
satisfying. The Wolverines, not
noted for their speed, garnered
four stolen bases and picked up
several extra bases because of
their aggressive play.
De Cou and John Hornyak both

former was 4-8, and everything he
hit seemed to be a line drive.

Dear Joel,
I like your discovery of McCabe, and your attempt to
get him a reasonable share of the limelight.
To get him suited and ready for his specialty would
be good:
For him just as deserved recognition is good for any-
one.
For Michigan football, with an exciting and human
interest element that would please the fans.
For the University image, evidence that a man with an
ability need not be lost in the crowd.
I hope the coaches read your column.
Sincerely,
J. M. Trytten
Prof. of Educ. Emer.
Well, Schembechler did read the column, but his reaction
was not nearly as complementary.
"It's bullshit," Bo bellowed from his office desk last
Friday. His displeasure became a bit too obvious as he
tossed the copy of The Michigan Daily towards me. Appar-
ently Schembechler believed the entire thing was some
sort of fabrication. Nevertheless, everything that I said
can and would be ,backed up by McCabe, University of
Detroit coach Jim Leary, and me.
Schembechler's other comments were of a more specific
nature.
"That man (Leary) was crazy for letting McCabe do that,"
Schembechler sternly retorted, referring to the time when the
U-D coach elected to use him on the kickoff squad even
though a collision with another player might have been hazard-
ous. McCabe would kick-off from the near hash-mark, then
quickly exit to the sidelines leaving only ten men to cover his
end zone-bound kicks. Bo added, "The ma-n in the center auto-
matically goes after the kicker."
But I've never known anyone to take a cheap shot at
another player who is moving away from the play. Further-
more, Leary allowed McCabe to make his own decision on the
kicking option, a decision McCabe earned the right to make.
Pessimistically,'Schembechler says that McCabe would also
be "fair game" for rushers trying to block any place-kick
attempt. But McCabe is fully aware of this and should know
by now when to get out of the way.
To be more precise, Schembechler is not in favor of
giving McCabe another chance to make the team. "I cer-
tainly couldn't have this (a possible further injury) hang-
ing over my head," Bo confirmed. Somehow I find it hard
to realize that the former Air Force veteran doesn't recall
his own health problem. Schembechler suffered a heart
attack the morning of the 1970 Rose Bowl game but he
has long since returned to coaching.
Compounding the problem, Dr. Richard Schneider, a. neuro-
surgeon at University Hospital, has given McCabe the ok to
play while providing him with a special protective helmet.
Let's hope McCabe gets a chance to rise it.

Brui~n,
By The Associated Press
BOSTON - Unheralded Fred
Stanfield scored three goals for
only the second hat trick of his
National Hockey League career
yesterday, leading the Boston Bru-
ins to a 6-1 victory over the St.
Louis Blues in their Stanley Cup
semifinal playoff opener.
The Bruins, well rested after a.
week's layoff following their five-
game elimination of Toronto, com-
pletely dominated the Blues in
getting a quick jump in their best-
of-seven series.
St. Louis took a 1-0 lead on
Garry Unger's power play goal at
3:18 of the opening period.
Stanfield, who scored three
goals in the Toronto series, tied
the count 1-1 at 4:22. Mike Wal-
ton and Johnny Bucyk added
goals, lifting Boston into a 3-1
opening period lead.
Stanfield, a 27-year-old center
used on the Boston power play,
made it 4-1 on a long slap shot
while the Bruins had a man ad-
vantage midway through the sec-
ond period.
Then, he completed his hat
trick at 19:32, poking in a re-
bound of a shot by Bucyk.
