FRUSTRATION AND pressure could be getting to Bo Schem-
bechler. Could it be that the man who has been so well loved
and respected here for so long has chosen to blame the fans and
press for Michigan's recent ineptitude?
Monday at the press luncheon, Bo lashed out at "crying",
fans and writers who are upset about the consecutive ties and the{
inability of the offense to move the ball. Bo rebuked his critics;
and followers for "expecting the same thing year after year."
But, who does Bo have to blame save himself? Since 1969
his Wolverines haven't lost in Ann Arbor. They've had a piece of.
the Big Ten championship four of six years, and (before this
week) haven't been ranked lower than tenth in the national.
Now, Michigan followers have been confronted with a less
than sensational product, and Bo has been confronted with a re-
action much to his dislike. Several apparent problems may be
keeping the coach awake at night and causing grouchiness on!
Monday mornings.
Michigan's defense seems to be the weakest in years. In
three games it has yielded 40 points, or slightly mor than 13
points per game, well above its nation leading average of 7.8
per game accumulated since Bo arrived in 1969.

Ali added: "I told you 1 was
the greatest."
Frazier-almost carried to the
dressing room - was unable to
make any immediate comment.
Ali did not clearly dominate
until the 12th round when he
caught Frazier with four superb
combinations as his corner
shoulted, "You've got to knock
him out to win."
Al pressed against the ropes
and caught Frazier with a left
hook and smashed Frazier with
left and right hooks, about six

On the other hand, Elzinga has demonstrated that he can make
the offense go. Last year he filled in for Franklin against Iowa
and Indiana and led the Wolverines to victory. On the opening
drive last Saturday he engineered a 13-play, 75-yard scoring
steamroll of Baylor which consumed almost six minutes. This
drive not only gave Michigan a seven-point advantage, but also
gave the impression that the previously lackluster offense had
been revitalized.
The party ended (on the ensuing series) two offensive
plays after Rick Kolschalk had recovered a fumble, giving
Michigan the ball on the Baylor 39. Michigan gave the ball
right back as Lytle stumbled and Elzinga lost the ball on
the attempted handoff. That play was the turning point of
the game as the momentum shifted and the Bears marched
down the field for the tying touchdown.
For the rest of the afternoon, the offense failed to click. Leach
entered the game in the third quarter and promptly threw into a
crowd for his fifth interception o the year. Elzinga could only
