Spec
By TOM CAMERON
The last time the Wolverine
football team met Southern Cal-
ifornia, Bo Schembechler was
green to big-time college foot-
ball.
You see, Michigan was not
e-en suppose to be in the Rose
Bowl on New Year's Day, 1970.
Michigan was not suppose to
win the Big Ten title, either,
and for that matter, no one
thought Bo's boys would beat
Ohio State so convincingly.

This was Schembechler's first
year as Michigan's head coach.
He was not suppose to take all
the marbles. That's not polite.
A rookie coach should have been
more gracious.
So when Michigan arrived in
Pasadena, Bo was just a rookie
with a funny first name and a
hard to pronounce last name.
He was introduced coming off
the plane as "Bo Shembler,"
which was easier to -say, but
nonetheless wrong.
After nine years though, Sch-
embechler is almost a household
ivord. Whsen he goes to the Rose
Bowl this year, that thing about
his name won't happen again.
Neither, Bo hopes, will a lot
of other things that went on that
year.
The 1970 Rose Bowl game was
one disaster after another for
Michigan and Bo Schembechler.
It started off with a few minor
injuries to some players, but
then running back Glenn Dough-
ty came up with a knee injury,
putting him in the stands for the
game.
Then, the day before game
the roof fell in.
Schembechler suffered a heart
attack.
The players, stunned, took the
field wondering abo>ut the mas
who had taken them this far
nod now was in a hospital hed.

Some of them wept openly be-
fore the game.
Michigan gave the Trojans a
courageous fight, but the offense
came up short against the in-
famous "Wild Bunch"-the USC
defensive line of Charlie Weav-
er, All-American Jimmy Gunn,
Al Cowling, Tody Smith, and
Bubba Scott.
John McKay's Trojans opened
up the scoring with a field goal

"in the first quarter and then,
once anain, the world just wasn't
goinn U-M's way.
As if the loss of Doughty and
Schembechler were not enough,
four plays into the second quar-
ter, Billy Taylor, who filled in
for Doughty, was sidelined with
a neck injury.
Michigan answered USC's field
goal nonetheless by driving to
the Trojan 9-yard line but was

unable to score a touchdown in
three tries. Michigan settled for
a field goal to tie the game.
The Michigan defense hadn't
given up a first down, save for
one penalty, when USC scored
in the third quarter on a pass
after M i c h i g a n quarterback
Moorhead was intercepted at his
49 yard line.
