THE MICHIGAN WOLVERINIFS take on Purdue this week at
Michigan Stadium, but you wouldn't have known that from
listening to the questions and answers at Bo Schembechler's
weekly press luncheon yesterday.
In rapid succession, Bo was asked about events in East Lan-
sing and Champaign-Urbana last Saturday, what he is expect-
ing in Columbus, and what he thinks of the current Rose Bowl
rbles and proposed changes. At one point, an irritated Bo sug-
gested, "Let's talk about this week's game, okay?"
When he was asked about the Boilermakers, Bo lavished
abundant praise. "They've got Larry Burton, who's one hell of
a player, and a great sprinter. Their tight end is as good as any,,
and they've got receivers as good as any we've faced," Bo
One can be certain that nothing Bo said yesterday will
end up posted in the Purdue locker room. Bo is too smart to
say anything that an opposing coach could use against him.
But it is one thing to tell a group of sportswriters how good
an opponent will be, and another to get a, group of football play-
ers to believe it. Purdue will hit town possessing a 3-5-1 season
mark, with defeats at the hands of weak-sisters Duke and Min-
nesota among their five losses.
With the big game in Columbus only eleven days away, the
Wolverine players will face a great temptation to look ahead. But
Bo will not admit a potential problem exists, at least not pub-
"I'm not going to do anything special to get them (the team)
up for this game," he said. "They know what's at stake here.
And this is their last home game."
One can expect, though, that certain facts about Purdue
will be mentioned to the Wolverines this week. The Boiler-
makers gave Michigan tremendous battles In 1971 and 1972,
before succumbing by the margin of one field goal each time.
Alex Agase's squad boasts a well-rounded offensive unit and
Purdue handed Notre Dame its only loss of the year..
Michigan assistant coach Tom Reed calls Purdue, "the best
offensive team we'll face so far this year." Bo would not go that
far in praise of the Boilermakers, but he did say that "there's
not one team in the Big Ten that can't move the ball."
On more popular subjects, Bo remained unconcerned about
his team's recent close games against lightly regarded opposi-
"What's wrong with you people is that you disregard these
other teams," claimed Bo,; as thoug the sports media were
responsible for the miscues that characterized the Michigan
offensive performance, last Saturday.
"I respect those ball clubs. Anyway, the big thing is to win.
We can profit from the mistakes we make, win or lose."
"I'm not upset with a 14-6 win. There are a lot of teams in
the country that have played under the same circumstances as
we did down there and didn't win."
Bo would not predict what effect Ohio State's stunning
loss to Michigan State would have on the big showdown, or
Michigan's place in the polls.
"I'm not disappointed that the " Buckeye's won't be number
one when we play them," he stated. "In that game, it doesn't
matter who is rated where."
So the showdown approaches, and the pressure mounts. And
it would.be a great shame if the "Spoilermakers" ruined all the
