DEFENSE PREVAILS

Wolverines ready ...
.. for second season
READY or not the Michigan football team is going to have
to play a real game this Saturday. The Three-I League
with its 63-7 games is over for the year and for the rest of the
season the Wolverines will actually will have to play their games
before they can sing the Victors.
And nobody knows it better than Coach Bo Schembechler.
Although his team has been overpowering in its last two ap-
pearances he realizes that weak competition has played a large
role in determining the final scores. He is also the first to say
that though Purdue and Ohio State have both been defeated,
they are capable of giving Michigan a real struggle.
The next two weeks will be very revealing," Schembech-
ler commented. "I think Purdue is a good team and it'll be
a hell of a tough game to win. And don't think that OSU's
loss to Michigan State will take any of the luster away
from that game. Ohio will be tough, I don't care what their
record is."
There are some who would disagree, saying that the Wol-
verines can easily handle anyone in the Big Ten. But none
could contest the fact that Schembechler and his team are go-
ing to be under intense pressure for the next two weeks. They
have won nine games thus far, but if they can't win them all
the whole season will become meaningless.
Before the current campaign started the team sat down
and decided on some goals for the year. Schembechler won't
reveal what the players decided to accomplish this season, but
it Is likely that going undefeated is high on the list. Accord-
ing to Bo "we're a goal seeking team and we set some very
ambitious goals." So if they lose a game the Wolverines will feel
they have failed.
The season is drawing to a close for most teams, but
for Michigan it's just beginning. The final games have be-
come their whole season. "These last two games are the
whole show for us," said Schembechler. "There are two
weeks to go. Two Saturdays and I'm anxious.
He didn't say it, but he also knows that the Wolverines
can't afford to lose if they want to stay high in the national
rankings. Schembechler claims to be disinterested in post season
honors, but he admits that after the season is over he'll let
people know where he thinks Michigan should be in the polls.
And if they finish undefeated it's a good bet that Bo will pick
A a low number.
A TV commentator accused him of running up the score
last week against Iowa, in order to impress the pollsters. But
Schembechler denies" this, adding that the idea at this point
is just victory. "We just want to win our last two games," he
stated. "If we do win I don't care how you add it up. It's a
hell of an accomplishment."
} If they do win all the games the Wolverines will be
making a trip out to the Rose Bowl, but Bo isn't ready to
look that far ahead. He admits that "you have to talk about
the Rose Bowl if it's part of the incentive to the players."
However, he adds that "the players haven't talked about
it, at least to. me."
A victory at Purdue will make the whole issue meaningless
anyway as it will clinch the bowl berth for Michigan, But
Schembechler keeps insisting that the Boilermakers will put
gp a battle. And although the Wolverines scored 63 points
last week they did not play flawless football offensively.
The most obvious problem was the way they handled the
ball. A Bill Taylor fumble of a poor pitch by Tom Slade cost
the defense a shutout as it gave Iowa the ball on the Michigan
10 yard line. According to Schembechler "we've been handling
the ball too loosely the last few weeks. It's easy to overlook
against Iowa but it could hurt against a tough team."
And despite their records, the final two teams on the Wol-
verines schedule will be tough. Purdue is a physically massive
outfit and OSU will play well against Michigan even if they
have to use their cheerleaders. So the Wolverines must hang
onto the ball if they want to hang onto or improve their posi-
tion.

Colts'
By The Associated Press
BALTIMORE - Linebacker Ted
Hendricks bolted 31 yards after
recovering a fumble in mid-air,
scoring the tie-breaking touchdown
in the fourth quarter as the Balti-
more Colts defeated Los Angeles
24-17 last night in a National
Football League battle betweenl
division runners-up.
Hendricks' decisive dash with
9:03 left in the game came with
startling suddenness in the tense
and tight defensive struggle that
had been tied 10-10 by the Colts
just a few plays earlier when Jim
O'Brien kicked a 32-yard field goal.
Following the kickoff, Larry
Smith smacked into the Colts' line
-and middle linebacker Mike Cur-
tis. The ball jarred loose and went
virtually straight up. Hendricks, a
6-foot-7 linebacker nicknamed "The
Stork," had no difficulty reaching
up to grab it in mid-air and raced
unmolested into the end zone for
a 17-10 lead.
The Colts added another touch-

OMAHA - The Boston Celtics

the fourth quarter to defeat the

Dave Cowens poured in 30 points
to lead the Celtics, who stayed on
top of the NBA Atlantic Division
with their ninth vicory against two
defeats.
Cowens got 16 of his points as
the Celts built a 63-50 halftime
lead. Boston made it 93-70 during
the third period. Jo Jo White fin-
ished with 24 points in the only
pro basketball game to be played
in Omaha this season.
Cincinnati trailed throughout but
Nate Williams came off the bench
to lead a Royals' come-back try.

4-3-1, while the 49ers are 6-2.
O'Brien's field goal, which tied
the game 10-10, came with 10:15
left in the contest. The teams had
battled to a scoreless third period
in which O'Brien had been short
on two previous field goal attempts,
from 51 and 48 yards out.
Then, suddenly, it was a differ-
ent ball game as first Hendricks
broke through and then Matte.
That put it safely out of reach,
despite a 36-yard touchdown pass
from Los Angeles quarterback Ro-
man Gabriel to Matt Maslowski

while a punt was in the air.
Under the rules, Ray was en-
titled to the free kick from the
Baltimore 45-yard line even though
time had expired, because kick re-
turner Alvin Haymond had signal-
led for a fair catch on the punt.
But Ray's kick, attempted with
the teams lining up as they would
for a kickoff, was wide to the left.
Ray's successful field goal came
