Jones; one of the Mets' .hot-
test hitters in their stretch drive,
launched the winning assault with
his 11th home run of the season in
the second inning. It was his sixth
homer in the last ,10 games.
Mets ace Tom Seaver, 19-10, got
the victory, with relief help from
bullpen star McGraw.
After Jones' homer, the Mets
made it 3-0 in the fourth when
Rusty Staub opened the inning
with a single. Cubs starter Burt
Hooton, 14-17, walked John Mil-
ner-and Jones to load the bases,
and' Grote followed with a two-
run single.
The Mets added two more runs
in the fifth. Wayne Garrett opened
the inning with a double and took
third on a single by Felix Millan.
Staub singled Garrett home and
Millan came in an a sacrifice fly
by Milner.
The Mets picked up an unearned
run in the seventh on a single by
Staub, a walk and Santo's error
on a hard grounder by Don Hahn,
giving Seaver a 6-2 cushion.
However, Seaver was knocked
out in the bottom of the seventh
when Dave Rosello singled and
Monday crashed his 26th home
run of the year.
McGraw came on to relieve Sea-

CONFERENCE FLOPS

Bo 'perturbed ..
.. Blue must improve,
Dan Borus -
YOU WEREN'T the only one who was disgusted with the
Michigan Wolverines' performance last Saturday. Bo Schem-
bechler was also.
Still hot after the "'worst game I've ever coached in Michigan
Stadium,' Bo Schembechler had another concern yesterday. And
one the average fan wouldn't think would bother him at all-the
passing game.
"I had confidence in the passing game a couple weeks
ago. Now I'm not as confident. Frankly our passing attack is
in trouble," a restless Schembechler said.
"We're not executing well. Pass protection broke down
completely. Our receivers aren't making any moves, just too
many mental mistakes."
Questioned extensively as to why the Wolverines went to the
air only three times the entire Navy ball game, Schembechler
gave this answer: "We didn't get any field position whatsoever.
The defense just couldn't get us the ball the way they did before."
Actually Michigan went to the air almost as many times as
it usually does in the course of a game. The only catch, and it is
a big one, is that quarterback Dennis Franklin didn't get the ball
airborne. In fact, nine-count 'em-nine times a pass play was
called and nine-count 'em-nine times, Franklin was either
caught or forced to run out of the pocket. That, dear friends, is
not execution nor is it Bo Schembechler football.
So maybe, just maybe, we'll see a little more flying pigskins
come Saturday afternoon.
Two variables should be considered in this:
1) the state of Franklin's injury.
Quarterback Franklin sustained an injury to his left hand.
If it is improved enough, Franklin will go. The Oregon game will
be the last non-conference game to test out the passing attack and
I don't think Schembechler, if he is serious about developing one,
will pass it up (pardon the pun).
2) the tenacity of the Oregon defense.
According to Schembechler, who this week will have no
problems in convincing his charges that the Ducks will be tough,
"No one has ever driven on the Oregon defense." If that's so,
then Michigan probably will try. if the Wolverines blow the Ducks
out early (Oregon has made the Big Error this year), then the
passing game will be in gear.
Schembechler also spent yesterday's luncheon lauding the
performence of center Tom Jensen. Jensen, who has certainly
won the starting job, really fired out from his center position.
He did so to such an extent that the rest of the line looked
slow in comparison.
Also in for faint praise after the Navy debacle was tailback
Gordie Bell. Bell is in open competition for the tailback spot and
could well nail down the spot with a good practice week. Peeved
by the performance of Chuck Heater, especially the fumble caused
by the junior's poor method of handling the ball, Schembechler
indicated the job was up for grabs.
But the big story yesterday was an admission and a resolu-
tion.
The admission was that the Wolverines were not ready to
play. Schembechler took part of the blame for that. The resolution
was that the Wolverines will be ready against Oregon. Schem-
bechler will see to that.

By JEFFREY MILGROM 1
Ohio State 37, TCU 3. Another
pleasant, worry free afternoon for'
Woody Hayes and his men from
the Buckeye state. Dead wrong.
OSU's Rose Bowl hopes suffered a'
severe blow this past weekend as;
226-pound junior Harold Henson,j
was operated on Sunday for torn;
knee ligaments and is expected toi
be out for the remainder of the
season.
This incident overshadowed an-
other impressive victory for Ohio
State (2-0), with touchdown runs
of 72 yards by quarterback Cor-
nelius Greene and a 68 yard
burst by super sophomore Ar-
chie Griffin.
Henson, who last year scored
14 more touchdowns than anyone
in Columbus and more than any-
one else in the nation, was carried
off the field late in the first per-
iod.
"It was an expensive victory,"
lamented Coach Hayes. "I don't
thing I've ever lost a player of
Henson's caliber so early in the
season . . . but you have to re-
group, count your blessings, and
start over again." Henson is
listed in good condition.
Other teams in the Big Ten did
not fare so well on the scoreboard,
however, as Michigan (3-0) and In-
diana (1-2) were the only other,
schools emerging victorious. In-
diana's victory was the first un-
der new coach Lee Corso as the
Hoosiers downed the Wildcats of
Kentucky 17-3.

sota (1-2) in the second half after
