team's' defense.
1.
Schembechler, whose Wolverines gave up 27 points last Sat- 2.
urday, spent much of yesterday with the master of nettlesome 3.
defense, Indiana basketball coach Bobby Knight. 4.
"He's' my new secondary coach," joked Schembechler at the 6.
start of his weekly press luncheon. 7.
8.
"I originally came up to discuss defense with Bo," smiled 8
Knight. "But on ,my way up I changed my mind. So we've 9o.
spent the last couple of hours talking about offense - a sub- 11.
ject which neither of us know much about." ' 12.
And so it went-a very relaxed Schembechler calmly listing 13.
the things that went wrong with his defense in the 40-27 win 14.
over Wisconsin. The Badgers piled up 268 passing yards and 16.
426 total yards, more than any other Schembechler team has 17.
given up in his seven years at Michigan. 18.
And Wisconsin was supposed to be an easy game. Stanford, 19
this week's opponent, is generally acknowledged as the finest 20.
passing team in the country.

"I told you as the season started that I was concerned about
the defense," said Schembechler, who went on to explain how
Saturday's rout turned into an exciting game.
Much of the problem was a lack of preparation. Wisconsin
used a multiple T offense that Michigan had never seen be-
fore. In some situations the coaches called for the wrong de-
fense. In others, the play-action kept the defense off-balance and
out of position.
"It's 'a tough offense to get ready for," said Schembech-
ler. "Wisconsin has a good offense anyway, and it's especially
tough when you haven't seen it before.
Besides the catch-all explanation, "We didn't execute,"
Schembechler blamed a poor pass rush, a lack of interceptions
and some lucky catches for Wisconsin's unusual point total.
"We touched seven balls on defense and got only one inter:
ception," Schembechler said, shaking his head. "That's unheard!
of. There wasn't much pressure on the quarterback. Our under:
neath coverage wasn't good, either-all of those passes were
about 12-15 yards."
"And there were a lot of passes that wouldn't normally be
caught that were. We touch the ball all those times and don't
intercept . .. a 5-9 guy catches an alley-oop pass when he have'
a 6-2 guy covering him . . . a lot of little things like that hurt us."
Can Blue contain Cordova?
In' the immediate aftermath of Saturday's game, Schembech-
ler talked of personnel changes for the Stanford game. By yester-
day he had cooled off some and said he expected "no drastic
changes."
But he's got to do something befog is Saturday. Stanford'
played a great game against Penn St;. last weekend, holding
the Nittany Lions scoreless for the last 51 minutes of the game.
Turnovers gave Penn State 15 quick points, but the Cardinals
came back to lose by only 15-12.!
Quarterback Mike Cordova, who operated with ease against
Michigan in last year's 19-19 tie, had a 17 for 37 performance

Saturday. -
That guy's a passer," said
.'Schembechler. "When Stan-
ford gets two or three hun-
dred yards passing, I don't
want you guys to be sur-
prised. Because I can tell' you
right now, Stanford's gonna
get two or three hundred'
yards passing."
But he said nothing of spe-
cial preparation or new stra-
tegy. Only that "the coordina-
tion of our defense will be bet-
ter this week because we know!
what to expect'"j
Stanford coach Jack Chris-.
tiansen said much the same
thing about Michigan's predict-
able offense a few weeks ago.
1 He felt that was one thing his
team had going 'for it.
So everyone knows what the
other team' is going to do Satur-
day, gbut no one knows who's
going to win. Expect a strug-
gle of Bowl-like proportions.
