~IL

M ICHIGAN COACH Bo Schembechler began
yesterday's weekly press luncheon the way
he always does-talking about how tough the next
week's opponent is going to be. It didn't matter
that the team this week is Big Ten weakling
Michigan State, whose only win this year was a 10-
7 squeaker over little Bowling Green. Bo informed
the media in-between and sometimes during bites
of his lunch that MSU is always tough on his team.
When the coach finished casting his vote for the
Spartans as the country's most underrated team,
someone finally asked the question that was on
everyone's mind.
"Bo, why do you gag your players?"
If you've never had the pleasure of trying to in-
terview a Michigan football player, perhaps an
explanation will help. Schembechler has never
made it easy for the media to reach his players,
but this year the problem of gaining access to
them is worse than ever.
The problems began at this year's Notre Dame
game, when Ed Muransky, the team's largest and
most outspoken member, was quoted by a variety
of papers as saying things like, "I don't like being
number one. I'd rather just stay at number nine
for a while and kick some ass." Bo would have
preferred that Big Ed had kept such comments to
himself.
Then two weeks ago, following the Wolverines'
lackluster win over Navy, tailback Butch Woolfolk
said, "I don't like this team now," meaning he
didn't like the way the team had played. It didn't
matter that those were the same sentiments Bo

had just given the team, he didn't feel that
Woolfolk should tell such things to the press.
So following that incident, Bo said that he told
his squad, "If you don't want to talk to those guys,
let's just don't talk to them. The hell with it. If you
can't talk any better than that, they're gonna
make you look like jerks." Hence the question.
After first laughing and saying, "I don't gag my
players," Bo immediately contradicted himself
and spent the next 15 minutes explaining why he
gags his players. Quite frankly, though, none of
the reasons seemed very convincing.
"I just feel that you guys make players look like
dumbbells," began his explanation. "You made
Butch sound like he didn't like the players. Hell,
he's one of the most popular guys on the team."
As for Muransky's comments, Schembechler in-
formed the Detroit writer who used quite a few of
the quotes, "Muransky told me he didn't even
know you were standing there. His mother was
just upset. She chewed him out and the kid didn't
play a good game for the next two games." The
writer responded that Muransky said his com-
ments in front of several other reporters in a
"press situation."
But then the coach gave the real reason he
doesn't want his players talking to the press.
"These are just kids," said Schembechler. "I've
worked with 17 to 22 year-old kids for all my life,
and I know them better than you. Sure they're
smart, but that doesn't mean they're mature. You
think a football player is an adult, is mature, and
can handle any situation."

I began to wonder if the players know how their
coach feels. And if they do, how can Schembechler
expect his players to perform like men if he treats
them like children?
The plain fact is that Schembechler is paranoid
when it comes to the media. If he had his way, the
sports pages would be filled with nothing but box
scores. Once you start adding quotes and analysis,
Bo figures, that's when the trouble starts.
He didn't even like the story that was done on
him in Sports Illustrated a couple of weeks ago.
"Sports Illustrated made me look like a jerk,"
said Bo. "Every cuss word I said, he's got it in
there." But in the opinion of the reporters assem-
bled at the luncheon, the article in question was
excellent, and made Schembechler out to be quite
a likable guy. Bo was just making it clear once
again that he doesn't like sportswriters.
But the question remains, why does Bo gag his
players? Most of the other coaches at Michigan
don't shut the door to the press. It's no problem to
talk to one of Bill Frieder's basketball players or
any of the minor sports athletes. Are they more
mature than the gridders, Bo? Obviously not.
Schembechler just needs to trust his players
more. Whether they're mature in Bo's mind or not
should not be a concern when it comes to talking to
the press. People want to hear what Butch
Woolfolk, Ed Muranksy, and the other Wolverines
have to say after a game, and Bo owes that to both
the fans and his players.
And speaking as a 17 to 22-year-old, Bo, we're
not kids any more.

Stickers take 2-1. vi

By MARTHA CRALL
The Michigan women's field hockey
team completed a three-game weekend
homestand with an impressive 2-1 vic-
tory over Southwest Missouri State
Sunday morning at the Michigan
Fieldhouse.
Co-captain Julie Forrestel scored on
a penalty corner with seven minutes
left in the game to break a 1-1 tie. Heidi
Ditchendorf notched Michigan's first

point at 21:00 of the first half on an
assist by Marty Maugh.
MAUGH SCORED A second first-half
goal but it was revoked when officials
ruled that Ditchendorf had her stick
positioned above her waist.
"This is the best game of the season
so far for us," said head coach Candy
Zientek. "Our strategy is the same,
we're just getting it together."
Sophomore Nancy Hirsch started the
game in goal for the Wolverines and
was replaced with aminute to go in the
first half by freshman Jonnie Lee
Terry. Hirsch gave up one goal to the
Bears when Stephanie Dutton
scored on a penalty corner with 2:00 in
the first half...
THE WOLVERINES took two of three
games this weekend (the other victory
came against Northern Michigan on
Friday), making their record 3-4-1
while the Bears dropped two (the other
to Iowa), putting them at 12-4-1 on the
season.
The stickers' next action comes today
at Albion. They return home tomorrow
to take on Western Michigan at 4:00
p.m.

Golfers stay home
The Michigan women's golf team did
not participate in the Purdue In-
vitational Tournament this weekend
due to an illness in head Coach, Tom
Simon's family. The event, which was
held last Friday and Saturday in West
Lafayette, was won by Ohio State. The
Wolverines will resume their season
next weekend, October 9-10, when they
compete in the MAIAW tournament in
Mount pleasant.
Spikers finish second
The surprising Michigan women's
volleyball team rode one shocking up-
set and seven straight victories to a
second place showing in the Spartan
Invitational in East Lansing over the
weekend. Michigan advanced to the
championship game where they fell to
Eastern Kentucky 9-15,9-15.
The Wolverines opened play on
Friday night with a tough 15-12, 8-15, 15-
7 win over Illinois-Chicago Circle and
then breezed to three relatively easy
victories, beating Michigan State,
Temple, and Northern Kentucky.

Ictory
THE WIN OVER the Spartans, a 15-3,
15-5 walk, was indeed a shocker, only
the second time the Wolverines have
beaten the Spartans in their last 16
meetings,
Michigan continued play on Saturday
by rolling past Wisconsin-Parkside 15-6,
15-12 to complete a clean sweep of its
pool and advanced to the tournament
championship round.
After a 15-5, 15-12 win over Northern
Illinois, the Wolverines were pitted
against an Eastern Michigan squad
they had beaten easily earlier this year,
15-7, 15-3. The result was a 15-6, 15-0
pasting of the Hurons, which advan-
ced the Wolverines to the championship
game against an Eastern Kentucky
team they had never before faced.
Eastern Kentucky fought off Michigan
15-9, 15-9 to grab the championship and
snap a 12-game Wolverine winning
streak. The Wolverines are now 18-6 on
the season and resume action today
with a dual meet against EMU and
Ferris State in Ypsilanti.
