An improvement in quarterbak Rick
Leach's passing may be attributed to a
minor change the staff has instituted in
his passing style.
"He's had a tendency to overstride
when he's getting ready to pass. We've
tried to make sure that his feet aren't
more than eight inches apart when he
passes," said Nehlen.
Though Nehlen has praise for all his
peers on the Michigan staff, coach
Schembechler receives far and away
the highest accolades.
"I definitely think he's the best foot-
ball coach in the country today," he
said. "He does a super job with the kids.
He's demanding like he should be, but
he doesn't ask us to do anything that
he's not capable of doing himself."
Coach Nehlen is realistic when
looking toward the future. He's wary of
jumping into another uncomfortable
situation like that at Bowling Green.
"I want to go as far in coaching as I
possibly can. If I become a head coach
again, it must be in a good situation. I'll
only go where the football program is a
valuable asset to the university."
But right now he must worry about
the situation Saturday with Duke. His
first game as coach in Michigan
Stadium excites even someone with as
much experience as himself.
"The game is something special to
me and my family. I'm really looking
forward to going down through the
tunnel on Saturday."

A funny thing happened to Frank
Geoff on the way to classes this mor-
ning. He stopped at a local A2 munching
place for a bite to eat. Just then a man
walked in and asked the waitress for
some "Gridde picks and a large milk
with syrup on the side."
Needless to say, the waitress was
confused. At that moment Frank spit up
his cocoa crispies and said, "Your in
