'M' spirits, Illini offense fly high

By GREG DeGULIS
They were down, and it looked like they would stay
down for the count. But the Michigan gridders have
been granted a reprieve in the last couple of weeks,
and Michigan coach Bo Schembechler relishes his
revived Rose Bowl hopes. "Our intensity is back," Bo
noted at the weekly Michigan football luncheon
yesterday. "We've been in races before and if you
give a Michigan team a second chance .. .," Bo
trailed off.
Last weekend's convincing 34-13 Wolverine win at
Minnesota, coupled with the Illini defeat of Iowa,
leaves Michigan as a solid Rose Bowl contender. Two
weeks ago; the odds that Michigan would be in
Pasadena on New Year's were, said Bo, "zero to
Snone," but two conference losses by Wisconsin and
Iowa vaulted the Wolverines into a tie for second
place with a 4-2 Big Ten record along with Illinois and
Wisconsin.
"WE'RE JACKED and we're going after this
thing," said Bo, whose sentiments were echoed by
one of his veteran players, senior defensive back
Brian Carpenter.
"The attitude is real good," Carpenter said. "We
feel we can win it." Asked whether the team
preferred another bowl if Michigan stumbles in
coming weeks, Carpenter immediately replied, "It's
Rose Bowl. We'll only settle for the best."

The story line goes as follows: If Wisconsin loses or
ties, and Michigan wins the last three games, the
Wolverines will take their third trek to Pasadena in
four years.
IT SOUNDS simple, but the three best passing
teams in the Big Ten- Illinois, Purdue, and Ohio
State- loom ahead on Michigan's schedule. Illinois,
the Wolverine opponent next Saturday, is certainly
not shy about putting the ball up. Illini quarterback
Tony Eason has thrown for over 300 yards in five
games as 80 percent of his team's yardage has come
through the air. Hardly "three yards and a cloud of
dust."
'We're jacked and we're going after
this thing..
-Bo Schembechler
on the Big Ten title
"No team in the league has the sophisticated
passing patterns of Illinois," Bo said. "Before, you
had to stop the rushing game of 300 yards, but now
you have to stop a passing game of 300 yards."
Contrary to popular belief, Illinois does run the ball
occasionally, almost too occasionally for Illini head
coach Mike White. "I wish we could run the ball bet-
ter," White admitted as he addressed the luncheon by

phone from Champaign. "People think I'm kidding,
but you can't beat a great team with no running
game."
DESPITE WHITE'S wish, Illinois uses its running
backs more for little dump passes out of the backfield
than for running. "To them," said Bo, "throwing the
ball to the tailback or fullback is the same as a run-
ning play."
Junior Illini running back Darrell Smith has
already amassed 26 catches for 299 yards, while his
backfield mate, senior Joe Curtis, has 22 catches for
142 yards.The two wide receivers boast of Anthony
Carter-like numbers of 30 catches and 586 yards for
an 19.5 average for junior split end Mike Martin. His
counterpart, junior wide receiver Oliver Williams,
has equally impressive numbers-28 receptions, 541
yards and a 19.3 average.
Typically, Bo has kind words for the transfor-
mation of the Illinois team from 1980 to 1981. "A lot of
new players," Bo said. "They have faster receivers
and their defense is a lot better." Hence the 4-2 Big
Ten record.
"We've had some sellouts down here," White con-
tinued. "That's sort of unique and it has helped."
Last year, White said, "I could barely get my players
out of the lockerroom (at Michigan)." This year,
though, a mobile junior college transfer named Tony
Eason and a better defense make Illinois more than
ready to face up to the task.
