MICHIGAN'S Dwight Hicks (17), Don Dufek (35), Greg Morton (77), and Mike Holmes (40) team up to crush Baylor tailback
Cleveland Franklin in part of yesterday's action at Michigan S tadium. Franklin, who according to an old Baylor fan runs "like
a bull with a bee in his ear," ran for 135 yards and a touch down for his part in the 14-14 tie. This was more than twice the
yardage the Bear's second leading ground gainer, fullback Mike Ebow, collected. Ebow managed just 50 yards in nine attempts.




An 11-nlay drive, relying heav-
ily on the running of Bell and
f"llback Rob Lytle, took Mich-
inn in for the final score, which
again tied the game, 14-14, with
8:10 remaining.

.. . consistently inconsistent
THREE GAMES into the season, Michigan remains unbeaten,
yet the Wolverines have failed to win at home in two tries.
'Are Bo's attempts to gain his 100th victory jinxed? Is Michigan
trying for an undefeated season with only one win? Is Bo tired
of meeting Ohio State undefeated with digits only in the plus
column? Or are the Wolverines simply without talent and ex-
Michigan definitely has ability, but experience is lacking.
The team has been unable to sustain long scoring drives and its
defensive secondary has not been up to its usual standards.
Coach Bo Schembechler said, "We haven't got anybody
out there offensively, I mean as far as experience goes.
"We've got .Bell and that's about it, except Smith, but he's
not a senior."
But there's a lot more to winning a game than the skill of
the players. At Michigan it appears to be a question of consist-
"Every time we get the ball it seems like there's some kind
of foul up," Schembechler commented. "We make one mis-
take and it's third and eight. We're just a very inconsistent
team now."
The statistics tell the sory. The Wolverines gave up 3.6
yards per rushing carry yesterday while just two weeks ago the
same squad yielded only 2.3 yards per rushing carry to the more
highly touted running attack of Wisconsin and Billy Marek.
The quarterback has also been inconsistent for the Wolver-
ines. Rich Leach began the first two games this season with
Mark Elzinga seeing limited action. Yesterday, Bo started the
more experienced Elzinga but replaced him early in the third
quarter with Leach to finish the game.
Up to that point, Elzinge was three for seven and had
moved Mchigan 75 yards for a touchdown in the opening
minutes. Despite this, Schembechler replaced the junior
with the freshman who went zero for three in the air and
led only one drive that netted a first down.
Besides these erratic moves by the coaches and the players,
even Michigan's consistencies have hindered its effectiveness.
Bo uses Gordon Bell iS per cent of the time when it's third
and short. During the Stanford game, in nine of these situations,
Bell carried five times and never once made the first down.
Michigan has also consistently thrown and fumbled the ball
away. Last season, the Wolverines averaged under .5 intercep-
tions per game; this season the quarterbacks have thrown two

bined for 4 goals in the last
"The guys really improved
as the game went on," said
coach Isaac. "We talked about
Cincinnati breakaways at half-
time, and after that they real-
ly looked good."
HE ADDED that besides "the
usual stalwarts (Yawitz Bauer,
Firestone), I was especially
pleased by the nerformances of
Dick Brown, Wylie; and back-
up goalie Chuck Cullen."
The game did not count in
the Midwest Intercollegiate Wa-
ter Polo Conference standings.

Few and far between are the Michigan fans
who would disagree with either of these state-
ments. Though Grant Teaff will have to wait
till he gets back to Baylor to receive the con-
solation he deserves, everyone from Schem-
bechler on down knows that the Bears have
only themselves to blame for their own second
straight tie.
They missed two field goals and were stopped
only millimeters short of Michigan's goal in
the third quarter. Had the game been played in
Waco, Texas, the Bears could quite possibly
have pulled it off.
As for the lackluster Wolverines, they have
already set an all-time Michigan record in
only their third game.TTheyahave tiedstwo

While it may be true that Michigan was lucky
to tie Baylor, it's also apparent that they will
have to be even luckier to tie powerhouse Mis-
souri next week.,Indeed, the Tigers may estab-
lish something of a record themselves.

In short, the next two Michigan games are
crucial. Two defeats would insure the worst
season performance since Bo came to Ann Ar-
bor. On the other hand, victories would show
that the two ties were exceptions and that un-
derpowered offense and porous defense are not
the rule for the Blue this year.
No one can really explain why Michigan
has not played well thus far. The coaches and
the players are uniform in saying that no one
thing has held them back. Rather, a collec-
tion of small mistakes against quality oppo-
sition have hurt their performance.
This may be true. Stanford and Baylor are
both several cuts above the traditional Michi-
gan out-of-conference, cannon fodder opponent.
Is it that Michigan makes the same small
mistakes at the beginning of every season and,
for a change, this year played teams that could
exploit them?

Is it
as all

that this Wolverine team is as talented
the others but its lack of experience
