By LEBA HERTZ
An angry Bo Schembechler, E
enraged by the UPI's filming
of Wednesday's secret practice
session barred the wire service
from attending a press confer-
ence he held at the Michigan
Athletic Department yesterday.!
When representatives of the
service refused to leave the
scheduled m e e t i n g room,
Schembechler moved the con-
ference upstairs, and checked
in reporters on a one-by-one ba-
sis to guard against UPI entry.

bechler announced that all theI

anniversary of the Snowbowl.
The story behind the exclu-
sion of the wire service's rep-
resentatives was traceable to an1
incident that occurred during
practice Wednesday afternoon.
Andrew Sacks a freelance pho-1
tographer on assignment for the
UPI, worked his way into an
apartment that overlooked the
Tartan Turf field, where the
gridders work out.
According to Schembechler, a{

Schembechler has resigned
from the UPI Coaches Board.
"Those people from UPI were?
told last year that they couldn't
take pictures of our practices,"
said Schembechler, "They at-
tempted to go into various
apartments and offered them
money in order to view our
practice.
"THE GUY was notified that,
no pictures were to be taken. I
don't want anything to jeopard-
ize our game," he continued.
"It was a sequence camera
that could jeopardize our game
this week. A still photograph
could also be helpful to oppo-
nents if taken at the right time.
He can just publish those pic-
tures in a newspaper. Columbus
does get newspapers."
According to Schembechler,
the UPI asked Sports Informa-
tion Director Will Perry if it
could take shots of the Michigan
mentor. It was told it could
take posed pictures of him
Mondaysor yesterday. There
was no request for pictures of
the players.
"No one can take pictures of
the players in practice", said
Schembechler.
He then quipped, "Only me.
There are no pictures unless it's
for my show."

Films of Michigan's Wednesday afternoon football prac-
tice appeared on WBNS TV, channel 10 in Columbus, on
last night's six o'clock news report.
According to Ted Mullins, sports director and 'caster
for the station, the films were taken by a WBNS staff mem-
ber who is on assignment in Ann Arbor shooting feature
footage for the upcoming Michigan-OSU clash.
"The film is of no value to anyone." Mullins said. "I'd
be glad to show it to anyone who wants to see it. It was
1 minute and 1 second long, and for the most part, all you
can see is that there is indeed a football field and some
players on it. There is no extra footage."r
When asked why he bothered to show a film in
which no formations, plays or anything of "value is ap-
parent," Mullins replied that he was just following or-
ders. He also stated that the cameraman was not instructed
to "spy" on the Michigan team, nor does the station have
any connection with OSU.

Schembechler said that des-
pite the fact that Michigan will
be in a bowl his team will be
up for the game:
"I'm not familiar with the
happenings on campus, but our
team is highly motivated to win
the Big Ten Championship.
We're going to be up for this
game. That I can assure you."
Schembechler feels that the
kicking game, penalties, and
the passing game will play an
important role in tomorrow's
contest. In addition, he men-
tioned that neither team wants
key injuries early in the game.
"The home advantage seems
to be magnified in a game of
this nature," said Schembech-
ler, "Although we played well
in Columbus the last two times
and could have won with the
right luck."

THE EXERCISE in popular American culture called this year's
Michigan-Ohio State "game" by no means begins, and may
not end tomorrow. The long months of preparation, speculation
and anticipation peak as Woody brings his entourage north to do
battle on the gridiron. But the real battle has been constantly,
raging since Mike Lantry's last second 33-yard field goal attempt
sailed wide to give OSU a 12-10 victory last November.
The rivals ended last season with identical 7-1 conference
marks, but for the second year in a row, the athletic directors
vote enraged Michigan fans; as once again the Buckeyes were
sent after the roses. It was little solace to Bo, his team and his
supporters when the Big Ten's bowl selection policies were sub-
sequently altered. Dennis Franklin, Dave Brown and Co. had
been denied a bowl trip for their three varsity years.
Ann Arbor supporters were granted satisfaction when OSU
blundered, and the Trojans capitalized with J. K. McKay's touch-
down grab plus Shelton Diggs' diving catch ion the two point
conversion gave USC an 18-17 Rose Bowl victory and the National
title.
All winter, spring and fall, the Wolverines have been get-
ting ready for this year's confrontation thinking one thought:
Rose Bowl. During the first week of the season, the teams
were ranked second and third in the national polls, intensi-
fying the rivalry. Fans and possibly some of the players,
looked way ahead towards tomorrow's showdown.
Michigan responded with two dismal ties, which resulted
in a drop in their ranking and a lull in fan enthusiasm. But
Ohio State, while winning all their games and rising to the
number one spot on both major polls, had its shakey per-
formances, too. So, as both teams progressed through the
season, compiling victories the supporters returned with re-
newed and increased vigor.
All over Ann Arbor, one can see the signs of the accrued ex-
citement. "Beat Ohio State" or "Go Blue" appear on buttons, T-
shirts, and walls across the University. This year's crop of
bumper stickers is especially innovative. In addition to the old
favorites: "M Go Blue", "Screw OSU," "Save Fuel: Burn
Woody" and "OHIO is a four letter word", there are the new:
"Woody has a big mouth, but Bo has JAWS", "Give Woody a
Bo job", and the catchy "OHOWIHATE OHIO STATE". In addi-
tion, posters, banners and signs are hanging around the campus
in likely places, such as fraternities and dorms, to unlikely spots,
as in professors' offices and the Health Service. The situation i
much the same in Columbus.
What has caused this intense rivalry? An obvious reason
is the fact that these quality teams have vied for the en-
viable position of Big Ten champion for several decades.
The rivalry has intensified in the last eight with the two
teams dominating the conference. The real hatred on the part
of Michigan fans may stem from the 1968 incident in which,
with the score at 50-14, OSU leading, Woody elected to at-
tempt the two noint conversion, adding salt to the wounds of
the previously undefeated Wolverines. (Mercifully the attempt
failed.) If that memory didn't kindle the hatred in the heart
of Michigan fpns, maybe it wns HAyes' temper tantrum in
1971 when he threw his hat and broke the yard marker in
two. Whatever the reason, the feelings against the Buck-
eyes are running high.
It's difficult to be objective or rational about an eve*" that
is surrounded by so much attention and ceremony. Sportswriters
are supposed to maintain this facade of professionalism, but it's
not so easy when one lives in the midst of such madness. Leave
the objectivity for out of town writers and let's hope that the
banner in the window of the Beta Theta Pi holds true:
"THE BUCK STOPS HERE"
