Bo boasts .0..
.. .then acts normally
By JOHN NIEMEYER
With the football season half over, Bo Schembechler is pretty pleased
with his team's performance thus far.
Now Ican hear most of the veteran Wolverine fans out there saying,
"Wait a minute, Bo never admits that he is pleased with anything." That is
of course very true.
Bo typically comes to the weekly press luncheon with prophecies of im-
pending doom. He is a master at lauding the lambs of the upcoming
weekend's slaughter while lamenting his own team's weaknesses.
And he did his share of that this week with comments like, "Our offense.
still needs to improve," and "I think Wisconsin is good. Any team 5 and 0 is
He didn't dwell on the threat that the Badgers imposed, however, which
may be due to the fact that he doesn't have to build up Wisconsin. They are
indeed undefeated so far, one of only five major colleges left in that
category. He can sit back and let somebody else beat the drum for them.
This week Bo was more interested in praising his own team and its ac-
Take for instance his comments on Harlan Huckleby. "I think Huckleby
is coming. That (MSU) was his best game this season."
Huck gained-146 yards against the Spartans despite their concentration
of shutting the outside down. He was named "offensive player of the week"'
by Schembechler for his efforts.
"He's a tough running back, "added Schembechler. "He can get those
tough yards and still is a breakaway threat. You have to watch him.
He, Russell (Davis) and Leach are just playing good ball."
Why the improvement over last year? Bo's simple answer was, "Last
year he was a sophomore .:. ."
And Huck is not the only player reaching new heights in Bo's opinion.
"Ralph Clayton is coming on now and will be a factor." The sophomore
speedster pulled down three passes for 99 yards last weekend and is presen-
tly Leach's favorite receiver.
y Dwight Hicks "is adjusting real well to the wolfman spot. He was our
defensive champion of the week this week," Bo pointed out.
Michigan's mentor spoke of the past two weekends and the benefits his
team had derived from some unusually respectable competition. "The last
two teams we have played are pretty darn good."
"Playing two strong physical teams is bound to help us."
And then there are the other teams that Michigan has already met and
disposed of. "How about Navy? They are 3 and 2 now. And Duke, didn't I tell
you guys they weregood. The beat South Carolina," beamed Bo.
Now Bo isn't boasting or over confident at this point in the season. He
made his weekly comments about not deserving to be rated number one in
the country, which has Wolverines undoubtedly will be following the-demise
of Oklahoma and USC. And he did mention improvements to be made and
It is pretty obvious that he does have quite a bit of confidence in the 1977

Some things never change. Among
these is the reputation and tradition
built up by the Michigan Athletic
Department, both for athletic excel-
lence and also for the academic
standards it places on its athletes.
One thing that is changing in the
department is the increasing recog-
nition of women's athletics, and the
consequent expansion of the wo-
men's athletic program at Michigan.
With the advent of Title IX
regulations and the era of women's
liberation, athletic participation by
women in college is ever increasing.
The person currently involved in
guiding this constant expansion of
the women's athletic program is
Phyllis Ocker, interim Associate
Athletic Director for women.
