"The boat is full," Wolverine
grid coach Bo Schembechler said
with a cryptic air yesterday after-
As Michigan rises higher in the
national polls, so rises the national
degree of attention. Going into the
fifth game of the season, the un-
defeated Michigan team has ac-
quired more attentive passengers
than it ever could have expected
Whether or not the 'M' boat
remains at the present standing
room only interest level depends
right now on what happens this
weekend in Ann Arbor against
Michigan State. And no matter
how good the statistics look on
paper for Michigan, pessimists
have only to point to Michigan
,State's 23-12 win over the Wol-'
verines last year.
"Anything I could say about
that game would be a rationaliza-
tion," Schembechler says. "People
rationalize it by saying that psy-
chologically we weren't ready or
any other number of things. Mich-
* oigan State played better defensive
and offensive ball. They just
played a good game."
IN LAST YEAR'S game, the
Spartans used a new offense
against M i c h i g a n, one which
pounded out impressive yardage
by halftime against the Wolver-
ines. "We adjusted for it during
halftime and then we were all
right, but by then they had gain-
ed over 250 yards on us. This year
we're trying to be ready for any-
thing," Schembechler explains.
Schembechler does not discount
the psychological factors involved
and that is born out in the meth-
odical defensive machines he has
manufactured. "A sudden change
in football gets a team down psy-
chologically," he notes seriously.
Schembechler sets up as an ex-
ample a situation where an oppo-
nent has put together a long drive
-downfield, only to have his de-
fense stop them inside the twenty.
On the first play after acquiring
the ball, the offense fumbles the
ball away and forces the well-
worked defense to take to the field
He explains, "Some defenses
might think, 'The offense blew it
and we have to go out on the field
again.' I try to create a defense
which thinks, 'They're just inside
the 24-yard line. I've only got to
go like hell for five plays and hold
them, then I'll be able to come
out of the game for a rest.'
"I think you can coach for
that," Schembechler asserts. "It's
THE PURDUE game last Satur-
day remains in the conversation
primarily as a basis for making
observations about the upcoming
MSU game. Perhaps the 'M' of-
fense has turned the corner, but
Schembechler admits only, "I'm
not ;sure about Purdue's defense.
I think MSU has a better defense
Although pleased with the of-
fensive improvement, Schembech-
ler still sees a 400-yard game as
good offensive football. The same
backfield as used in the Purdue
game will most likely get the
chance to attempt to reach that
goal against the Spartans. "I'm
through moving them around. I
have two backfields, that's it,"
The backfields would include
Preston Henry and Bill Taylor at
tailback, Glenn Doughty and Bill
Berutti at wingback, and Lance
Scheffler and Fritz Seyferth at
The defense, which has given
up an average of only 51/2 points
per game, continues to draw Sch-
embechler's praise. "They've been
good, consistently good," he says;
and when pressed further, he
quips, "You talk about great only
when the season's over."
BECAUSE OF the shutout, the
entire starting defensive team
made the weekly Victors Club. The
offense would have been able to
claim the same feat had they hit
the 30 point mark, but the unit
fell a point short with 29 against
Purdue. Jim Betts and Don Moor-
head were champions of the week.
"We're going to have to have'
patience and poise again this
week," Schembechler says. "It'll
probably go down to the fourth
period. We'll prepare for this game
like anyone would prepare for
their biggest game.
"Michigan State has played two
of the top teams in the country,"
Schembechler continues, "and has
played well against them. They're
playing wonderful defensive foot-
ball, and -good offensive ball. The
offense is big and strikes out
Schembechler wisely says little
NO ONE REALIZES better than
he the potential of his team to sail
undefeated into the Ohio State
game. Obviously, there is also the
pressure of proving last year was
no fluke, pressure that was not
there a season ago. But Schem-
bechler is no seer, and those who
attempt to push him into the
prophet's role continually find
that he does not budge.
Like his style of football, Sch-
embechler is becoming defensive
and well-guarded. With a full boat
the slightest rocking motion can
have disastrous results. Schem-
bechler is making very sure that
if his ship capsizes, it will be from
on-the-field blunders, not off-the-
It sounds like a conspiracy.
Judge Hoffman, where are you? Gridde Pickings has been victim-
ized by a conspiracy of miniscule proportions. For the first time since
anyone can remember (and who bothers to remember Gridde Pick-
ings winners), we have two winners.
A not so improbable coincidence you say, but then consider the
facts. The winners are Berni Chong and Joshua Chong, who coinci-
dentally enough have been conspiring for some time now in the
conjugal bed of matrimonial bliss.
The daring darlings submitted two separate entries, and their
picks were not the same. However, they each got the same number of
games right, and to add woe to our existence, they picked identical
scores for the Michigan-Purdue game. But since they are married,
and presumably eat together, we are giving them only one pizza.
Hurrah for law and order.
For the second. week in a row,\ Elizabeth Kohn, the two-year-old
prodigee and sweetheart of Delta Chi, came in second. Elizabeth just
lets her fingers do the walking, and she beat out all you sages out
there in Big 'U' land and all but three members of the sagacious
The real losers of the week, however, were the employes of "the
University Store, who had the affrontery to challenge the mighty
Libels to a football game. They were, in fact, so arrogant that the
insensed Libels decided to postpone their contest with the Krasny's
goats to teach the fools a lesson.
There have been reports, however, that the University Store
employees (capitalists that they are) got a glimpse of the latest Libel
scrimmage and desire to call off the game out of sheer terror. One
glimpse of "Jelly Bean" Neubacher guiding the vaunting Little Red
Machine is enough to send even grown men home weeping.
In the meantime, however, you amateur prognosticators will have
to be content with the lesser teams, so turn in your picks and win
that delicious Cottage Inn Pizza.
