Ohio State game always a classic

Down to
the wire

For the great, big Michigan fans, there have
been some rosy memories, upsets, glorious momen-
ts and infamous decisions in the intense Michigan-
Ohio State games during the Bo Schembechler
years, 1969-76.
Following a humiliating 50-14 loss to Ohio State
in 1968, rookie coach Schembechler guided 12th
ranked Michigan to a 24-12 upset over the top
ranked Buckeyes. This enabled Schembechler to
become the Tirst rookie Big Ten coach since 'ne
Wolverines' Fielding H. Yost in 1901 to go to a Ntose
The fifth-ranked Buckeyes under the leadership
of Woody Hayes stormed back in 1970 with a convin-
cing 20-9 pounding over Michigan. A record crowd'
of 87,331 saw the home team roll up a 329-155 advan-
tage in total yards in Columbus.
A 13-yard pass from Don Moorehead to Paul
Staroba accounted for fourth-ranked Michigan's
only score.
Third-ranked Michigan slipped by unranked Ohio
State 10-7, in the only game that didn't decide the
Big Ten title.
*After Michigan topped Purdue, 20-7, and North-
western stopped the Buckeyes, 14-10 the week
before, the Wolverines had the crown clinched.
When Michigan nipped the Buckeyes, it became the

first Wolverine team to go undefeated through the
regular season since 1948.
After Buckeye Tom Campana ran back a punt 85
yards to take a 7-3 lead in the third quarter, it wasn't
until the last two minutes before Michigan running
back Billy Taylor spurted for the winning TD.
Third-ranked Michigan outran ninth-ranked Ohio
State 344 yards to 192, out-passed the Bucks 160-17,
scored more first downs (17-10), and ran more plays
(83-44), but lost 14-11.
Michigan was 10-0-0, but Harold "Champ" Hen-
son and freshman Archie Griffin led 8-1 Ohio State
to victory over a disappointed Schembechler and
his team.
Top-ranked Ohio State, featuring Heisman can-
didate lineman John Hicks and Griffin, who had
broken John Brockington's single season rushing
record at Ohio State, dueled Michigan to a 10-10 tie.
By a 6-4 vote of the Big Ten athletic directors Ohio
State was voted into the Rose Bowl.
QB Dennis Franklin faked a handoff and rushed
nine yards for one TD and Michigan kicker Mike
Lantry booted a field goal in the second half for
Michigan's ten points. Lantry later missed two field
goals in the fourth quarter.
Tom Klaban booted four field goals as the fourth-
ranked Buckeyes tripped Michigan, 12-10. A crowd
of 88,243 saw Lantry again miss a field goal, this

time in the last 18 seconds with an attempt that
sailed left.
A 42-yard pass from Franklin to Gil Chapman ac-
counted for the Michigan TD. This was the first time
in seven years that Michigan held Ohio State to no
touchdowns, although Griffin rushed for 111 yards
en route to his first Heisman trophy.
Another record crowd of 105,543 saw Michigan
lose its first home game since 1969, 21-14, as OSU
fullback Pete Johnson bulled for three touchdowns,
two of which were in the last four minutes.
Leading 14-7, Ray Griffin of the top-ranked
Buckeyes intercepted a Rick Leach pass at 3:18 and
raced to the Michigan one-yard line, where Johnson
scored on the next play.
Michigan outran OSU, 248 yards to 124, out-passed
the Buckeyes, 113-84 and held OSU without a first
down in the second and third quarters. Gordon Bell
dashed for 124 yards and fullback Rob Lytle added
another 104. The Wolverine defense held Heisman
winner Griffin to only 46 yards in his first sub-100
yard game since the 1975 Rose Bowl.
Michigan went into the game at Columbus,
needing the win to go to the Rose Bowl. Schem-
bechler had never won a game in Columbus. There
had not been a Michigan-Ohio State shutQut since
1964. Michigan won, 22-0.
Yet another record crowd of 87,250 was shocked
as Russell Davis bolted for two TD's and Rob Lytle
added another.4

Bo shuts out world...
. concentrates on Bucks
THE WEEK IS HERE. Bo Schembechler has waited all year for the Ohio
State confrontation. He hoped his team would be in a position to cop
the conference crown against the Buckeyes. And his hopes have come true.
Reporters were buzzing yesterday as they waited for the arrival of
Schembechler at his weekly press luncheon. With ten games behind him, all
that would be on his mind would be those archrivals from Columbus.
But once Bo settled down to eat his lunch he didn't say anything unex-
pected. He doesn't want anything said that could fire up Ohio State. No extra
ammunition for Woody to motivate his players. Bo said all the good things
about the Buckeyes--a good offense, fine lineblocking and so on. However,
Schembechler wanted to get across one point-Saturday's battle should be
"The excitement is always there," Schembechler said. "That is why you
coach-to get in these situations. This is what college football is all about.
The ultimate game
"You can't match this in anything else you ever do," he continued.
"Professional football couldn't touch this. Year in and year out-what a
classic this game is. There will be some great plays made on emotion. That's
why it's such a great game to watch."
Indeed, it should be a fine game to watch. Picture yourself at the
stadium Saturday. The white-clad Buckeyes come out of the tunnel gunning
for their second consecutive win in Michigan Stadium. The Wolverines
charge out on the field with 105,000 fans cheering wildly. And then a blue clad
man appears out of the tunnel-head down, jogging toward the sidelines.
Schembechler claps his hands twice and lets his team go crazy. He sim-
ply paces the sidelines or approaches an official. No matter how hard it
is-Bo keeps his emotions within himself. Touchdowns don't really stir him
up on the outside. He'll congratulate Rick Leach and concentrate on the ex-
tra point. After that, the touchdown is forgotten. It's time to put a few more
on the board. He can share his enjoyment with the players after the game.
But as the game progresses he strives for perfection.
Last year forgotten
The 22-0 victory in Columbus last year was great-but it does him no
good this year. The doors to practice aresealed shut. He doesn't want the ex-
tra fuss over the big game. He just wants to coach his team and be left alone.
Behind those closed gates he will get his team ready to play in his own way.
These last three weeks Bo has been very concerned. His dream of a Big
Ten title could have dissolved with another loss. Now he can still fulfill that
dream and he's working night and day to secure it.
Healthwise, Bo isn't taking really good care of himself. He should be
exercising more and getting proper rest. But Schembechler is a stubborn
man and won't change his ways-especialy if it means cutting back on his
coaching time. One thing is on his mind-a return trip to the Rose Bowl and
only the Buckeyes stand in the-way.
Since the Minnesota loss the Wolverines' play has improved every week.
Injuries like those to Harlan Huckleby and Gene Johnson don't help the
situation though. Bo anticipates his team will be ready for the big one-or
else no Rose Bowl.
"Don't expect to see the ball all over the lot," Schembechler warned.
"There probably won't be a lot of big plays. The defenses will get to the ball.
When two good teams get together anything can happen. A big play can turn
it around."
The big play. That's what Schembechler is trying to devise this week.
Two years ago, Schembechler stunned the Buckeyes with the halfback op-
tion pass from Gordie Bell to Jim Smith for six points.Last year, the fake
conversion and run for the two points killed Woodyand his boys. The
wingback reverse put Michigan in scoring position for the final touchdown of
the game. Believe me, Bo is concocting some sort of gimmick for Saturday.
T WAS BOUND to happen. Somebody else besides Matt Royston won grid-
Ides this past week. "Smarty" Marty Makinen, the Daily Libels most avid
supporter (his family has had Libel football season tickets for years) up-
ended the favored Mr. Royston. To win a small, two-item Pizza Bob's pizza,
just get your picks in to 420 Maynard before midnight Friday, desuite te
elongated picks and the games that will be played next week.

It's a familiar story around here. A
Michigan team makes its way to the
number one spot in the nation and then
- BLAMMO! Those losses can kill a
team in the polls. The Michigan icers
found that out when they lost to MSU, 9-
4 to fall from first to fifth. But the road
back probably won't take more than a
couple of weeks.
