THE MICHIGAN DAILY
heads or tales~
No off tackle Plays ...
. . .at Bo's luncheon
THE MONDAY LUNCHEON with The Coach is an established
ritual at many colleges throughout the country. Michigan is
no exception. Every Monday during the season, Bo Schembech-
ler breaks bread with about a dozen Ann Arbor, Detroit and To-
ledo writers to rehash the previous Saturday's rout and preview
the next one.
Most schools don't finish in the Top Ten year after year
and average two All-Americans per annum, so the conver-
s.tion at such places may deal with a) the complexity of the
off-tackle play b) the third - string left guard's nagging ham-
string pull or c) why our defense is pretty good even though
we gave up 48 points last week.
No such trivialities at the Michigan luncheon.
The conversation yesterday was about national champion-
ships and Heisman Trophies-not off-tackle plays.
The Wolverines have an unenviable tradition of never rising
in the polls unless a team ahead of them loses. Like a broken
record, if the Wolverines have one loss, the next team in the
poll will have two losses.

Down in Lubbock, Texas,
the sixth ranked Texas Long-
horns were upended by a tena-
cions Texas Tech squad. Red
Raider quarterback Tommy
Duniven threw three touch-
down passes to flanker Law-
rence Williams. The longest
was a 77 yard bomb in which
Williams was ten yards be-
hind the nearest Longhorn.
If also caught scoring tosses
of fifteen and eighteen yards.
They made a lot of mis-
takes early in the game and we
took control both offensively anda
defensively," said Jim Carlen,
head coach of Texas Tech.
Carlen discounted revenge as
a factor, even though Texas
beat Tech 28-12 last year. "We
just like to beat Texas," he
said. "They're to us what Michi-
gan State is to Michigan." The
Red Raiuers jumped to a 26-3
lead at the half and were con-
tent to sit on that margin
throughout the rest of the game.
SERGEI EISENSTEIN'S 1944
- Part I
Eisenstein's greatest and lost project was a three-part film about Russia's
most feared czar. He never finished it, but the two parts tha remain reveal
1 a heroic style of acting, rich historical details, and the extremely expres-
sive compositions and cutting that give this film a sublime, epic quality.

Schembechler understood his quarterback's feelings.
"Well, how would you feel if you were a three year quarter-
back, had lost one game in that time by 14-11 and the sup-
posed hometown newspaper has a headline about the Heis-
man Trophy candidate in South Bend?", Bo posed rhetoric-
"Detroit is by themselves--they're not in Michigan. All they
want to know about is the pros", commented the Wolverine boss.
One of the writers asked Bo if he was going to follow Falls'
advice and streak for attention. With his tongue firmly embedded
in his cheek, Schembechler responded, "Yeah, if I were faster."
