He apologized for the wisecrack and attacked his seafood

watching films, formulating battle plans and doing other things
that coaches do that sometimes drive them to heart attacks.
But the few silent moments ended, when some of the
writers (virtually the same ones who were at the luncheon
When Michigan was 9-0 last year and the year before that)
got down to the serious stuff. Since all the variables that
make a football team great or good or bad seem the same
in Michigan's case, the most sought after thought from Bo
was whether being 9-0 this year felt any different from being
9-0 any other year.
And the only way Bo could answer the queries was the same
way he always answers those questions: He talked around them.
"With all the players we lost before the start of the season,"
he said, "we were very worried about our defense. We lost five
defensive starters and we don't have anywhere near the depth we
had last year.
"On the other hand, our offense can do more things than
last year." The reason? "(Dennis) Franklin," Bo says without
hesitation. "Besides being able to throw the football, he's a good
runner. We didn't have that kind of speed at quarterback last
"But is this team as good as last year's?" the writers per-
"Well, I really can't say until after the next two games,"
said Be. "I can truthfully say that when we play Purdue this

After that one, it'll be the once-beaten Buckeyes in Columbus
and after that one (if there is an after), it will be another Rose
Bowl and maybe even a national championship. But we ought
to get the message: We're not going to know how good the
Wolverines really are until the season is officially over.
Now chances are-and I'm only guessing-that if Michigan
beats Purdue and Ohio State and wins the Rose Bowl, that some-
one might get Bo to say that this team is better than last year's.
But I wouldn't bet on it. If the Wolverines lose either of the
first two (which would most likely preclude the third), we'll
never get an answer.
Well, somebody finally woke up and asked Bo what he
particularly likes about this team, that others may have lacked.
And for that question, he had an instant answer, and a valid one,
"Coachability," he said. "The toughest coaching is when you
walk into a season and you've got all the players, like last year.
You're 11-0 before you start and then you have to go out and
"But you know, what did people think of a (Chuck) Heater,

They said, 'Well you lost Mike Taylor and Billy Taylor and

I like about a group like this. They're conscientious and fun to
coach. That's why it is a challenge. And I like challenges."
