Officials and defense
SS HE\BLEHILER doesn't claim to be any college football
offiridl's best friend. He makes no attempt to hide it.
Bo said Sat-rdiy the Wolverines had Wisconsin well under

One co ild almost see steamn spewing from Bo's ears when .
he talked abot the two calls that aided Wisconsin's fourth
quarter touchdown drives.
"The defender has a right to bump the receiver. Harry
Ba::ks didn't knock their man down. They bumped together and1
their man fell down," commented Bo of the play that eventually
led to Wisconsin's second touchdown.
"The official who blew the whistle on Novak's fumble
wasn't even in position. That was a fumble if I ever saw
one," he said, getting increasingly perturbed. The referee
in question ruled that Wisconsin Badger tight end Jack
Novak had been downed after catching a Gregg Bohlig pass
at the Badger's 35 yard line.
The Badgers eventually scored their third touchdown on the WOLVERINE TAILB

Bo's voice faded away before he finished the sentence.
Last week Bo griped because the officials weren't marking
forward progress. "There's supposed to be a linesman moving
laterally down the sideline, stepping off the runner's forward C

Bo said the Wolherines must improve every week in order to
gain an undefeated season and a trip to the Rose Bowl. The in-
centives are present. No one doubts that.
But, have the Wolverines improved? That question remains
open. Perhaps the Wolverines will put it all together in one big
emotional climax November 23 in Colhmbus. All the speculation in
the world can't answer that one. No one will know until the
game is played.
