Bo boosts Birds...
... readies for Spartans
AS IF HE DIDN'T already have enough to worry about, Michi-
gan football coach Bo Schembechler has had to add an-
other concern to his list. Somehow he's got to find time to root
for the Baltimore Orioles.
It seems that the television networks suffer from the de-
lusion that the World Series is more important than college
football. Since the Series opens Saturday in the American
League city the starting time of this week's clash between the
Wolverines and the Michigan State Spartans depends on who
wins the American League pennant..
If Oakland wins, football will start at 12 noon. If Balti-
more does the expected and wins one of the three remain-
ing games the Wolverines and Spartans can take the field
at the more reasonable hour of 2 p.m.
Since no coach in the world wants to play a crucial game
that early Schembechler has had to forget his loyalties to the
Cleveland Indians and become an Oriole fan.
Baltimore should solve Schembechler's baseball problems by
the time football practice starts this afternoon, but then he's
got to start working on the real problem, beating Michigan
On the basis of both team's performances over the last
four weeks, Schembechler shouldn't have much to worry
about. Michigan has crushed its opponents by a combined
score of 161-6 while Michigan State has struggled to a 2-2
But the time-worn cliche that past performances mean
nothing when Michigan meets Michigan State is unfortunately
still true. This game will bear no resemblences to the mis-
matches of the last three weeks. "It will be a tough, hardnosed
battle," Schembechler commented.
But in the next breath he said that he won't be shocked
if it doesn't turn out that way. There's just something about
these games that defies prediction. Two years ago the same
Wolverine squad that would later defeat Ohio State traveled
to East Lansing to meet a weak Spartan band. And they went
home beaten. Last year Schembechler predicted a tough de-
fensive battle and the final score was 34-20.
So if Bo is wrong again this year don't be too sur-
prised. Michigan State's offense hasn't gotten a lot of
points yet this year, but they could on Saturday. "They've
got a few problems, but they've got the nucleus to come up
with an outstanding offensive team," commented Schem-
bechler. "They have moved the football in the last few
years more than any team we've played."
Two years ago the Spartans didn't have much of an of-
fense but Duffy Daugherty junked the veer he was using and
went to the power-I. catching the Wolverine defense off bal-
ance. While Bo doesn't expect the same thing this year he's
got to be ready. The Michigan State offense wasn't very im-
pressive against Notre Dame last week, but according to Schem-
bechler "never judge a team's offense against Notre Dame's
defense, it's superlative."
But the Wolverine defenders shouldn't have the same kind
of problems their Spartan counterparts will have. The Michi-
gan maulers haven't given up a point in a month and they
don't intend to start Saturday. Even Bo admits, "our defense
is continually getting better." There are those, including the
four teams the Wolverines have played, that would compare
the Michigan defenders to the superlative irish.
The Wolverine 'offense isn't superlative yet, but it
doesn't have far to go. It met Schembechler's test against
Navy by playing a better game, at least in the second half,
than the week before. "Our offensive blocking was poor

against Navy," Bo noted, "but a good line will adjust and
ours did."
Part of the problem was the Navy defense. Though it
gave up 46 points, it was tricky. According to Schembech-
ler, "Navy's defense is the most unorthodox we'll ever see.
I couldn't believe some of the moves."

One of those occasions came

Gridde Pickings

PITTSBURGH (/)-Controversial
Dock Ellis described Pittsburgh
Pirates' management as cheap-
skates yesterday and said they;
didn't deserve a winner.
Ellis was angry because he had
to switch hotels at his own expense'
when the Pirates were in San
Francisco for the National League
The Pittsburgh pitcher said the
beds were too small in the first
"I went to another hotel-got red
carpet treatment-but paid $50 a
day out of my own pocket. And
to tell you how good that room
was, me and my wife and baby
slept in the bed," Ellis said.
"They (Pirates management)
don't deserve to win the pennant,"
Eliss snapped. "They don't deserve
to win the World Series."
Ellis, who pitched five innings
in Sunday's Pittsburgh victory ( ver
the Giants in the second game of
the National League playoffs, add-
ed, "But we're going to win be-
cause we have the best club. The
management can't get out on the
Ellis and another Pirate pitcher
who asked to remain anonymous
said the team was particularly
upset when the Pirate charter
plane to San Francisco had to
make a fuel stop for 45 minutes
at Omaha, Neb.
"It would have cost them $6,000
to get a bigger plane," Ellis stated.
The other Pirate pitcher said
there were 98 seats on the return
plane to Pittsburgh and 94 seats
were filled.
"It was filled with some br'oad-
casters, sons of executives and
other people. Didn't even have
room- to move."
"Pittsburgh-it's the same old
thing," said Ellis. "If we played
the way they treated us, we
wouldn't win a game.
"The ball players are not think-
ing about how we're going to win,
but where we're going to stay
and how we're going to get there."
Ellis, fined twice during the sea-
son by the Pirates for not signing
autographs at gates at Three
Rivers Stadium on Sundays, was
embroiled in another controversy
around the All-Star Game when
he said he doubted that National
League Manager Sparky Anderson

"Today I'd like to tell you of that enchanting continent known
as Africa. We left drunk and early on the morning of the 14th and
after spending ten days on the water, and seven on the boat, we

I shot two bucks. That was the biggest game we had.
Here's how the day began. Up at six, breakfast and, back in bed at
seven. This was our schedule for the first week. Go so we were back in
bed by 6:30.
One night I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got there
I'll never know. So we tried the remove the tusks, but they were
imbedded so firmly that they wouldn't budge. But of course, in Ala-
bama the Tuskaloosa. But that's completely irrelevant to what I was
talking about. We took some pictures of the native girls, but they
weren't developed. But we're going back in a couple weeks." (1930)
Our winner last week was John Levine. John lives at 520 Pack-
ard, Apt. 10, in old Ann Arbor town. John wins a Cottage Inn pizza
and a season pass to all Libel games as a bonus. (Bring your dog
around and we'll give him a bonus, too).
