Schembechier worries about
M' offensive line, Hawks

Lauterbur respects Michigan
but respect' doesn't mean fear

By BOB McGINN
Michigan head football coach
Bo Schembechler leaned against
his car outside Michigan Sta-
dium late yesterday afternoon
and talked about his team's final
full-scale scrimmage before Sat-
urday's opening game at Iowa.
"I can't really say I'm pleased
with the workout," Schembechler
said afterward, "because there
r were just too many mistakes out
there. We had a lot of penalties,
interceptions, and fumbles. When
I see that I get nervous.
"But anything that happens in
the final scrimmage must be
tempered with the realization
that it is just that-the final
scrimmage. Everybody is look-
ing forward to game week."
The squad was broken down
into two units for the closed two
and one-half hour workout. The
Blues were formed by the first
offense and the second defense,
while the Whites had the top
defenders and the backup at-
tackers.
Nobody was really much con-
cerned about the score, but for
those who must know such
things, the Blues overcame a
10-0 halftime defiict to rally for
a 23-16 victory.
Perhaps the most important
development to come out of the
session was the injury first team
guard Mike Hoban suffered mid-
way through the practice.
Schembechler said that Hoban
injured his knee and was im-
mediately given medical assist-

ance. Although the injury was
not thought to be too serious,
Schembechler won't k n o w for
sure until- this morning.
"The one place where we
couldn't afford another injury and
it happens," Schembechler lam-
ented.
Earlier in the week right guard
Dave Metz went out with neck
problems, while reserve left
guard Craig McMullen has also
been in drydock recently.
Senior Gary Hainrihar, who
had been waging a tight battle
with Metz for the starting berth
opposite Hoban, was also out a
portion of last week, but he was
in the first-line unit yesterday.
Sophomore Kirk Lewis. was
switched from tackle to guard
at mid-week, a policy Schem-
bechler didn't rule out doing
again. "More transfers are en-
tirely possible," he said.
THE MAN FROM MIAMI also
exnressed concern over the over-
all defense, something he has
become famous for. "The second
offense scoring ten points against
the first defense just doesn't
happen around here," he said.
Turning his comments to the
offense, Schembechler continued
his praise of diminutive sopho-
more tailback Gordon Bell (5-9,
175).
"I'll tell you, that guy has
some moves," Bo enthused, "and
he's not a tippy-toe runner,
either."
Bell has been challenging jun-
iors Chuck Heater, who started

the final seven games last fall,
and converted split end-wingback
Gil Chapman.
"Heater is the strongest of the
three, Chapman the fastest, and
Bell has the best moves," Schem-
bechler stated.
Quarterback Dennis Franklin
had a two-sided afternoon, ac-
cording to his coach. "He was
miserable the first half, and
great the second," Bo cracked.
Franklin had a hand in two
of the four touchdowns scored
in the workout, running for one
from 20 yards and setting up an-
other on a pass to sophomore
split end Keith Johnson.
Fullback Bob Thornbladh blast-
ed into the end zone from eight
yards out to cap the scoring
drive. Bell hit paydirt from 15
yards for the third six-pointer,
while soph tailback Eduardo Gon-
zalez got the fourth on a seven
yard scamper.
Schembechler had fine words
for several freshmen later, es-
pecially fullbacks Jerry Vogele
(6-3, 240), and Phil Andrews
(6-2%-225).
"We don't have all that many
freshmen, but some of them are
sure good football players," he
commented.
The Wolverine mentor again
expressed concern about next
Saturday's opponent, Iowa. He
mentioned their power-laden de-
fense and the enthusiasm of the
squad.
But right now he is most wor-
ried about his offensive line,

howdown between Michigan and
Ohio State. Who does Lauterbur
ike? "Michigan" he snapped,
with no hesitation whatsoever.
As for the darkhorses, Lauterbur
ikes Minnesota, Indiana and his
own Hawkeyes. No modesty there.
Of course, with people like line-

experienced quarterbacks, Butch
Caldwell, Kyle Skogman, and Bob-

tackle Jim Coode is termed as
"questionable" for the opener.
"I'd have to say that we're

there ain't no way Coode and
Hoban aren't going to be in there

But the Iowa Hawkeyes' mentor
holds deep respect for the Wolver-
ines. "Schembechler's ball clubs
are as mistake free as you will
find," he added. "They are so fine-
ly drilled and their execution is so'
precise you just don't get anything
handed to you against them."
In two outings against Michi-
gan as Iowa's coach, Lauterbur
has been on the losing sideline,
both times. The combined score
of the two games reads: Michi-
gan 94, Iowa 7. This trend leaves
Lauterbur with the unenviable
task of keeping Michigan off the
scoreboard, while getting his
team on.

around the Iowa City campus, sin-
cerely believes that stopping Mich-
igan will be the Hawks' sternest
test.

Ruggers split
The Michigan Rugby Football
Club opened the fall season with
a split against the Cleveland
Blues on Palmer Field yester-
day afternoon. The Blue Team
defeated the Ohioans 22-12 while
the Gold squad dropped a 20-8
decision.

"When you have Franklin, Shut-:
tlesworth, Heater, and Chapman,
you are stretching a defense.
There are so many things they can
do to you and they do them all so
well. It's rough," he concluded.
"I think one of the things that
went unnoticed was Franklin'sf
ability to pull the ball down and i
run with it," Lauterbur added. "So
they don't get the pass off, but he
runs forten yards and Michigan'
gets a first down."
On Bo, Schembechler's revela-
tion that the Wolverines would pass
more in 1973, Lauterbur reminded,s
"They passed for two touchdowns{
against us last year. No one has to
tell me they can pass."
The Hawkeyes have scored

Lauterbur will be using a lot
of sophomores offensively, in-I
eluding the entire backfield, but
that does not dim his optimism.
"We've got more experienced
people than in any year since I've
been here. Remember we played a
lot of freshmen last year. These
guys are veterans now, and I
think they're ready to come into
their own."
If next Saturday's opener follows
the script of the past few years,
though, Michigan's defense will
post an awesome monster for the
Hawkeyes to attack.
"Michigan's defense is such a
mobile defense," commented Lau-
terbur. "Whenever you might think
you have a vulnerable spot they
adjust so quickly it disappears.
"You just have to take what
you can get and not make mis-
takes. There just is no one place
you can attack Michigan."
