. Schermbechier keeping pace
H E MAY NOT admit it, but Bo Schembechler seems to be enjoying this
new type of football that they currently play in the Big Ten.
Schembechler will always be one to emphasize fundamentals-tackling,
blocking, you win with defense-but lately he's been saying things like, "You
have to be able to pass to keep them off balance," suggesting that maybe
there's a little hit of Mike White in all of us.
Three-hundred yard days through the air no longer inspire gasps of awe;
should Scott Campbell throw for less than that in West Lafayette on Satur-
day, the Michigan secondary will be credited with a fine performance. Quar-
terbacks today, more than ever, control the destinies of their respective
teams. And the result is illustrated in the standings, where it is conceivalile
that three losses will appear beside the name of the team that finishes atop '
the Big Ten.
Ohio State hasn't remained/ in the race because its defense has stopped.
people; quite simply, Art Schlichter has been outstanding. Illinois did not en-
ter Michigan Stadium tied for second place on the strength of its defensive
unit; rather, White has devised an imaginative offense built around the con- .
siderable talents of Tony Eason. Wisconsin, Iowa, and Minnesota have each'
been strong defensively, for the most part, over the past decade while still
failing to make a run at any title; the keys to their success in '81 bear the
names Jess Cole, Gordy Bohannon, and Mike Hohensee, respectively.
And the Michigan Wolverines have played their best football in their last
two games (34-13 and 70-21 routs of the Gophers and Illini), in which .
Michigan quarterback Steve Smith (who struggled to a 38.8 completion per-
centage through his initial six games) has totalled 22 completions in 35 at-
tempts for 461 yards and six touchdowns.
The metamorphosis in the nature of Big Ten football has reached the stage ;4.
where Bo no longer denies the correlation between a strong passing attack .
and a winning record.
"The ability to throw and catch the ball has now changed football,"
Schembechler said yesterday. "The offenses are so damn good now. There,
are probably five teams in the conference that are averaging 400 or more i
yards a game.
"I think it's a national trend," he continued. "The college coaches have
always been tremendous technique coaches. Run the option and wishbone.
Now they're starting to pass."
Schembechler is not enthused about the prospect of standing on the
sidelines while the opposition runs up 21-7 first-quarter leads before his
squad turns it around.
"This isn't the type of game I like to coach in," he said. "I like to be in con-
trol. I like to feel that we are dictating the flow of the game. That just doesn't
happen much anymore. Things are much more unpredictable. I really ddn't
understand this type of football."
It is easy to understand why Schembechler might not be overwhelmed
with joy about unpredictability in college football, in particular the Big Ten.
Bo won for 12 years because his offensive lines blew defenders off the line of
scrimmage, because he recruited quick, hard-nosed defensive players who
quickly learned their responsibilities and filled them. He beat the Wisconsins
and Purdues year-in and year-out because his players blocked and tackled
better: No need forthe quarterback to throw. Everyt 4 w4U L fins as long
as he doesn't make any major mistakes.
But Bo didn't fall/ behind by 14 points in the first quarter too often, either.
One can claim that a different Michigan defense would not have yielded 21
points to Illinois in one period, but when Eason has a sophisticated attack
and abundant talent at his disposal, it wouldn't really matter if Thom Dar-
den were roaming the secondary and Andy Cannavino were plugging holes
at linebacker.
Thus, Michigan has changed its football philosophy. And while Bo may
whine and moan about longing for the days of defensive invincibility, he does
it with a smile on his face and fire in his eyes.
Big Ten football has moved into a new phase, and Michigan must move
with it'in order to keep pace. New challenges lie ahead for all coaches on the
college level; they must develop high-powered offenses and, at the same
time, defenses to stop the oppositions'. Bo Schembechler seems to be eating
up the challenges.
Maybe I'm drawing conclusions too quickly, though. Maybe the smile on
Bo's face is simply his reaction to the fact that his quarterback outplayed
one of the conference's best last Saturday. Maybe if Steve Smith fails to
match Scott Campbell and/or Art Schlichter, the fir6 will leave the eyes of
Bo Schembechler.
