THE MICHIGAN DAILY
eedi &7 S lem
Bo say Joe ...
. . . just don't know
AS IT HAS BEEN for the last three years, Michigan opens its
eight game exhibition season this Saturday and the question
before Bo Schembechler at yesterday's luncheon was how do you
keep them down on the gridiron when they've seen the Naval
Academy's game films.
Why even Joe Falls knows that the only game that counts
comes up on November 24.
Well, the crafty Mr. Schembechler, as expected, didn't quite
see it that way. Asked about Mr. Falls' Sunday column, a piece
that concluded that the Michigan-Ohio State game should be the
only game played in the Big Ten, a piece which will undoubtedly
find its way to the locker room bulletinboards around the loop,
Schembechler grinned and replied, "I've taught Joe everything
he knows about football and he still doesn't listen."
Then the conservatively dressed Schembechler began his
methodical lecture on the meaning of these eight games before
the showdown for the universe and all its possessions. "There
are certain things we have to get down pat before this season
ends if we want to achieve our goals for this season. Unlike
some sportswriters and fans, that, not the score or how fancy
the game is, is what we look at," Bo concluded.
In the "big game" against Stanford, which was over as soon
as the Wolverines got the ball, here are some of the people and
things Schembechler saw:
Ed Shuttlesworth. '"That man is really playing football; let
me tell you. Oh, he's not running the ball for yardage, but he's
blocking like mad."
0 Tim Davis. "Listen to these stats. Davis had been in onl
62 plays from scrimmage. He's made the tackle on 20 of them.
Sometimes I don't even know how he made the tackle, he's that
" Tom Jensen. "He played terrific football. Blocking and
hustling throughout. He's going to start this week, not because
Dennis Franks (the regular center) is hurting a bit, but because
he earned it.
Penalties and turnovers. "Ridiculous, we can't beat the
better teams (read Ohio State) if we keep up this nonsense." In
the last two games, the Wolverines have chalked up 11 penalties
and five turnovers. The key to Michigan success has been the
ability to minimize mistakes. The Wolverines have led the nation
in least mistakes. These two game cumulative stats are com-
parable to those for the first five of last year. Needless to say,
that supreme perfectionist who runs the Maize and Blue was
feeling just a little peturbed despite the run-away of last week.
There's the rub, the mistakes. It didn't look like much to
worry about to those fans in the stands who were so bored that
by. the second half they took to tossing about the game ball
kicker Mike Lantry booted into the seats.
But the Michigan gamp is based, not upon superiority of
personnel, but on the performance 'as a workable unit. Shuttles-
worth will provide a good example of this point.
Here's a man who is without rival as the best fullback in
the loop. Not a more powerful runner plays for any Big Ten
team. Yet he will not lead the conference in rushing simply
because the offense does not revolve around him. He will,
however, continue to plug away, blocking and running out
Yet there was Bo Schembechler complaining over Weber's
lunch that offensive execution needed improvement.
If the precision is missing in the November 24th game, then
all-these exhibitions are worthless.
That's running a little ahead of the story. Exhibition Number'
Three is on deck this week and those weak cousins from the
Naval Academy are the foes. Last year they were trounced in a
boring 35-7 rout. This year won't be different.
So if you want razzle dazzle, go to Ypsilanti and check out
the Hurons. If you don't want that slow,- violent intimidation,
check out the three mile cross country postal meet. If you want
a clue how the Wolverines are going to win the big one, the
evidence will be on display at the Stadium. I've got a dollar that
says the first play Michigan runs is Shuttlesworth off left tackle.

STANFORD DEFENSIVE BACK Jim Kaffen (22) is about to get leveled by Bo Schembechler's fav-
orite blocker, Ed Shuttlesworth (31), as Chuck Heater (44) turns the corner. Kaffen had numerous op-
portunities to gaze into Shuttlesworth's eyes before meeting the Tartan Turf of Michigan Stadium in
last Saturday's 47-10 Michigan mauling of the Cardinals. For his efforts, Shuttlesworth was named of-
fensive champion of the week, while Kaffen got a free plane ride back to Palo Alto.

The Michigan Varsity Reserve
football team opened its 1973 sea-
son on an inept note, losing to a
more experienced N o t r e Dame
contingent 20-3 yesterday. The Jay-
vees, hampered by a lack of co-
hesion caused by a lack of practice
time as a team, could not put it
The Baby Blue put together their
one good drive following the open-
ing kickoff. The drive was sparked
by some inspired running by full-
back Jerry Vogele and tailback
Rob Lytle. Lytle picked up 40
yards of his game high 69 rushing
yards on this drive, capped by a
29 yard option gallop that took the
Wolverines down to the Notre
Dame five yard line..
The drive stalled there, as quar-
terback John Ceddia misfired on
two passing attempts, and Mich-
igan had to settle for a 22 yard
field goal by Bob Wood for a 3-0
Thearest of the game, however,
was all Notre Dame. The Baby
Blue could not move the ball with
any consistency, while the defense
proved incapable of stopping the
Irish attack. An interception by
Darrell Truitt proved for naught
as the Irish defense stifled all that
was thrown at it.
Capably directed by Rich Slager
and. Frank Trosko, Notre. Dame
moved into a 6-3 halftime lead on
a pair of Slager field goals of 33
and 31 yards, respectively. The
Irish used their superior depth to
!great advantage in mauling the
In the second half, Notre Dame
capitalized on some slipshod tackl-
ing and porous pass defense to
open the margin to 13-3. Tom
Parise bounced off several Mich-
igan tacklers to move the ball to
the Michigan eleven. Slager, the
nephew of the Michigan Stadium
announcer, hit Don Knott on a
f re eze
scoring pass from there. Notre
Dame's final score came on a 13-'
yard pass from Trosko to Tom!
Michigan mounted a late threat
as a pass from Jeff Spahn to
Glenn Franklin gained 30 yards
into Irish territory. Ceddia was
thrown for a loss, however, and
nothing came of the threat.
Surveying the wreckage after the
game, coach Denny Brown ob-
served, "The key to the gamne was
that our front five (offensive line)
could not handle their front four.
Notre Dame used a lot of different
sets, which got our people con-
fused. In fact, one of our guards
never blocked their tackle all day.'
In all fairness, it should be noted

The Micro Nikkor-P-Auto offers a unique combination, of exceptional
resolving power, superb flatness of field, high image contrast, and out-
standing color rendition. What's more, the lens provides a built-in closeup
system with which to apply its matchless performance up to 1:1 reproduc-
tion. The helical mount of the Micro Nikkor has an extra-long extension
range. You can focus it continuously from infinity to 9.5" (film plane to
subject) where it produces a 1/2-life size image. Use of the M2 ring,
furnished as standard equipment, provides a second focusing range from
1 /2-life size to 1:1. The automatic diaphragm remains operative through-
out the entire range even when using the M2 ring. Without this ring, the
lens is meter-coupled for open-aperture exposure control; with the M2
ring, the stop-down method is used.
