Bo points to defer
d-V1," N N

By DREW SHARP
With the shock of Saturday's 21-14
defeat to Wisconsin still showing on his
face, Michigan coach Bo Schembechler
tried to focus the attention of his weekly
press conference to this week's Notre
Dame game. But there was no way of
avoiding the inevitable question, "What
happened?"
"I've never had a team play so
poorly, in all my 11 years of coaching
here at Michigan, than they did out in
Wisconsin-never," said Schem-
bechler. "A lot of guys did not play up to
their potential."
SCHEMBECHLER SEEMED to vent
most of his barrage to the defense,
which gave up an uncharacteristic 439
total yards to the Badgers.

"When I came into the season, I wa
mainly worried about the defensiv
front positions," Schembechler adde
"Now I'm worried about all1
positions. If your defense doesn
tackle, it's going to have a hard tim
Guys were just sliding through ou

Schembechler has already decidedt
make one change in defense.

as: Dame," Schembechler said. "I'm going
ve to have the four best tacklers in the
d. secondary and Cooper is definitely one
11 of them. I'm not exactly sure at this
't time who he will replace in the secon-
e. dary."
ur Schembechler did not hold much
ct higher praise for his offensive unit, but
he defended sophomore quarterback
to Steve Smith who, in his first start, com-
pleted only three passes in 18 attempts
in and three interceptions. To say the
re least, Schembechler was not pleased
that Smith's primary receiver Satur-
day was Wisconsin defensive back Matt
Vanden Boom, the recipient of all three
interceptions.
"Smith did not have a good day
passing at all," said the Wolverine
mentor. "At times, he seemed to be
rushing his passes and all of that is a
matter of timing and he's going to have
to work on that. But make no doubt
about it, Steve Smith is my quarter-
back. What gets me is that we could
have won even with his performance."
NOT LEAVING any stone unturned,
Schembechler voiced dismay over
placekicker Ali Haji-Sheikh's dismal
showing, muffing field goal attempts of
41 and 46 yards.
"I only had one regret throughout the
game," he joked. "Not going for that

ise
damn first down when we had fourth
and one. I said to myself, 'Go for the
automatic three because you've gota
great kicker.' and he wound up missing
it."
As far as offensive changes for the
Irish game was concerned, Schem-
bechler felt that Lawrence Ricks would.
definitely have to be used more.
"RICKS IS our best all-around back
and he is going to play a lot more foot-,
ba ," noted Schembechler. "He only'
got two carries against Wisconsin. He's.
got to get the ball more. It's not that I'm
saying that one back is better than the
next, but it's just that I want Ricks to4
play more of a vital role in our offense."
Despite the bad grades Schembechler
gave his troops, he still does not leave'
out the possibility of the Wolverines
spending another New Year's Day in
Pasadena.
"It won't take a miracle for us to go,.
back to the Rose Bowl again this
season," said Schembechler. "I think
you're going to see a lot of defeats in the
conference. I said all along that,.
Wisconsin would be the most improved
team in the conference. Well, there are*
other greatly improved teams. Look at
Iowa. They upset Nebraska and North-_
western just missed beating Indiana, so
there is going to be some good com-
petition in the Big Ten."
At least Schembechler can expect to
have a healthy squad facing the Irish,
as Michigan escaped Madison injury-
free.
Remarked Schembechler, "You can':t
get hurt when you play like that."

Poor Bo had little to be happy about
this week. Not only did his squad drop
the game to Wisconsin last weekend,
but he couldn't even win the one-item
pizza from Pizza Bob's with his gridde
picks. The victor was Jay Hill of West
Quad with 16 correct choices.
Well Bo, you've got another chance,
just drop your selection-at the Daily, 420
Maynard before mid-night Friday.
