BO SCHEMBECHLER was mildly perturbed.
Mildly perturbed? Who's kidding whom? If Michigan's head
football coach was at all pleased with his team's performance
during yesterday's 14-0 win (those other nouns like "annihilation".
and "onslaught" don't apply) over Navy, he certainly did a good
job of hiding it.
"If I act like I'm hot, I'm hot," snarled Schembechler in his
post-game interview, which was conducted as if his defending
Big ,Ten co-champion Wolverines had just been knocked on their
collective ear. That was appropriate. They might as well have
The Middies, outscored 81-7 in their last two visits here,
refused to acknowledge Michigan's No. 4 national ranking, its
undefeated status, its size, depth, personnel, and all those
other things you're supposed to be afraid of when you come
to town to play the Wolverines.
"There was some spark out there today," suggested Navy's
first-year coach George Welsh. "We were better today than last
week (39-0 loss to Penn State), but we still should have been
Whatever the case, the fact is that Michigan played much
worse than everyone expected and Navy pltyed much better
than everyone expected. The Wolverines executed poorly on
offense, tackled sloppily on defense, and, win or no win, shutout
or no shutout, just did not live up to their advance billing for
"We didn't block, we didn't tackle, we didn't do anything
right," emphasized Bo. "Michigan played the worst game I
have ever coached in Michigan Stadium. We were sluggish,
very sluggish in everything we did. Our blocking broke down
And consider this. When was the last time Michigan's
opponent ran more offensive plays than the Wolverines did?
It happened yesterday. When was the last time the Blue defense
gave up 173 yards in the air? It was last week against Stanford,
when Mike Boryla picked up over 200 passing yards. Still, yester-
day's was "the poorest performance by a defense for a shutout
I've ever seen," quoth Bo.
But stop. Did you catch that word "shutout?" Have we ever
mentioned "always bending, never breaking?" Because that's
just something you don't pass over, even if the Wolverines have
registered ten whitewashes in the past three years and have led
the nation in scoring defense the last two.
A shutout should never become commonplace. And this
one was not. It was obvious the Michigan team was not up for
this game, not like it had been for Stanford, at any rate. But
how easy is it for a team to get up for two games in a row?
And it was obvious that Navy was up for this game. No team
likes to come to Ann Arbor and get blown out two years running.
The Middies in. particular have always been known for never
quitting. Always fighting. Never giving in. Scrappy. And they
intended to turn things around this time.
But how do you argue with three interceptions, a fumble
recovery, and no points against? Cleveland Cooper, a 1,000-plus
yard rusher a year ago for Navy, was held to 44 net yards, which
was more than half his team's total of 83.
"We got down there, but that's not good enough," said
Welsh. "They did it when they had to and we couldn't.
Michigan is awfully tough to score against." And when the
clock runs out, that's all that matters.
Besides, "You gotta give Navy some credit," insisted Bo.
"They're a pretty good team. They were reading the option
fairly well, and we weren't. They played good defense, they threw
the ball well, they were scrappy!"
Michigan had a game like this last year. The Wolverines
overcame Indiana 21-7 at Bloomington in a mistake-filled contest
that featured 13 fumbles and one interception. They rebounded to
whip Iowa. Yesterday's game was comparably flat. "I hope that's
a humbling victory, if there is such a thing," remarked Schem-
"They played a helluva game," said center Dennis Franks.
"Mentally we were unprepared," Wolfman Geoff Steger
agreed. "We just weren't thinking. We just didn't react like
we should and could have."
"Their offensive line was better than we thought they'd be,"
lauded defensive tackle and co-captain Dave Gallagher. "But
we expected to win. A lot of our mistakes were execution, but
that's no excuse. After this we'll be ready."
They'll have to be ready. Three down and eight to go, maybe,
but of those eight there won't be one in which Michigan will be
able to play this way and get away with it.

a lot of time chasing Franklin and with some success. Michigan's outside game was contained quite well by the Midshipmen.
