NO NATIONAL POWER l
Buffalo burgers-
not all that tough::

By BILL STIEG
Michigan's second game this
year is against Colorado, and
though the two have never met
before, a kind of rivalry already
exists.
First of all, the Sept. 21 clash
will add yet another grain of
evidence to one side or the
other in the never-ending de-
bate as to which conference is
college football's best.
And secondly, there is a
personal stake in the game
for coaches Bo Schembechler
and Bill Mallory, both former
head men at Miami of Ohio.
But the big attraction of this

game is the inter-conference
rivalry. The Big Ten, Big Eight,
Pac-Eight, and the Southeast
Conference have all claimed su-
premacy at one time or another
-often at the same time. But
the final say always comes on
the playing field, so one can be
sure both teams will be out to
prove their point.
The Wolverines last experi-
ence with a Big Eight represent-
ative was a forgettable 40-17
whipping at the hands of Mis-
souri in 1969, Schembechler's
first season at Michigan. In-
cluding that game, Michigan's
record against the Big Eight is
five wins, three losses, and one
tie. Colorado's record is identi-
cal against the Big Ten.
But things have changed in
the Big Eight since '69, and that
conference now resembles the
"Big Two and all the rest" for-
mat of the modern Big Ten.
Oklahoma and Nebraska pres-
ently hold more than their share
of Big Eight talent, not unlike
Michigan and Ohio State of the
Big Ten. Gone are the Kansas,
Missouri, and Colorado threats
of a few years ago. Gone, too,
are stars Charlie Davis and
Herb Orvis of the Colorado team
that beat Ohio State in 1971.
The Buffaloes were 10-2
that year, 8-4 in 1972, and 5-6
last year. The appointment of
Mallory as head coach has
prompted the usual "new era"
talk that tradionally accom-
panies such a move, but even
a new coach won't stop Colo-
rado from losing at least four
games this season.
The Buffs have lost about
half their starters to gradua-

tion, mostly from the offense.
The offensive line is fairly in-
tact, but the backfield features
three relatively untried players.
They are David Williams, who
won the starting quarterback
position from last year's regu-
lar C 1 y d e Crutchmer; Billy
Waddy, a speedy sophomore
tailback who had a great sea-
son on the freshman team last
fall: and Terry Kunz, a junior
fullback who was redshirted
last year.
The only familiar figure in
the backfield is wingback Dave
Logan, and All-American candi-
date this year. Logan was
named second team All-Big
Eight in football and basketball
last year. -
But Mallory, a former as-
sistant under Woody Hayes
and Schembechler's highly
s u c c e s s f u l successor at
Miami, would rather talk
about his team's defense. He
claims the Buffaloes will be
modeled after Hayes's Buck-
eyes, with defense the num-
ber one priority, a solid run-
ning attack second, and pass-
ing a distant third, though not
as distant as in Columbus.
Colorado has six of its defen-
sise starters returning, with a
g o o d, experienced secondary

Jeff Turcotte
and a questionable line, depth-
wise. The Buffs gave up more
than 22 points a game last year,
though, so that secondary may
have more than an average
workout trying to catch Mich-
igan's running backs.
There are a couple more fac-
tors working against Colorado.
The Buffaloes first game, a
week before coming here is
against another national power,
Louisiana State. Add to that
Michigan's home record (unde-
feated except for that Missouri
game since '69) and the Big Ten
supporters can probably chalk
one up for their side.
