Bo Schembechler cannot be blamed
for the recent misfortune encountered
by the Michigan football team, said a
majority of University students who
responded to a recent Daily survey.
The unscientific poll, which consisted
of interviews of 200 randomly-selected
students in various areas around cen-
tral campus, asked respondents
various questions about the 1980
Wolverines, ranging from opinions
about coaching strategy to judgments
about the level of fan interest in the
team this season. Each student who
was surveyed attended the South
Carolina game last Saturday and
professed to having at least a "partial"
interest in Michigan football.
FIFTY-NINE per cent of those polled
refused to place the blame of
Michigan's poor start on Schem-
bechler's shoulders, while 41 per cent
pointed the accusing finger at the
Wolverine mentor.
"When a team fumbles the ball so
much like Michigan has during the
season, it's no wonder why they're
losing ball games," said Paul Max, a
junior in Engineering from Detroit.

Max's thoughts were shared by those
of LSA junior Jim Martin.
"THE EXECUTION mistakes hurt.
The fumbles and (John) Wangler's in-

the Gamecock contest.
"When you're playing against a team
that has a back like (George) Rogers,
you've got to punt the ball away," said

THE POLL:
taken from 200 students

1. Do you believe that Michigan's 1-2 record
is the result of poor coaching by Bo
Schembechler?
No 118 59%
Yes 82 41%
2. Do you believe that Schembechler is
overrated as a coach?
Yes 138 69%
No 52 26%
Abstained 10 5%
3. Has Michigan's performance this season

caused a drop in the level of interest
among Wolverine fans?
Yes 108 54%

No
Abstained

88 44%
4 2%

4. Who would you prefer to see as Mich-
igan's starting quarterback?
John Wangler 118 59%
Steve Smith 32 16%
Rich Hewlett 28 14%
I Abstained 22 11%

which will square off against the
Wolverines in Michigan Stadium
Saturday. "He can't get the top fiv
linemen in the Midwest anymore. He'
got to go with his. strengths more in-
stead of trying to run people over."
A slight majority felt that Michigan's
recent downspin has resulted in a drop
in fan interest. But there are many
students who nonetheless still enjoy
Wolverine football
"I'D NEVER QUIT going to the
For more sports, see pages 9-11
games," said Pearson. "I love the cir-
cus atmosphere that the event brings to
the entire campus."
A position that has given Schem-
bechler many gray hairs already this
fall-the starting quarterback
spot-was answered without hesitation
from the students, who rallied behind
the fifth-year senior Wangler.
The students overwhelmingly
preferred Wangler's explosive but
sometimes unpredictable passing style
to the equally unpredictable running
game engineered by sophomore Rich
Hewlett. Hewlett finished third behind
freshman Steve Smith, who has yet to
play a down for the Wolverines this
season.

terception were the plays that really
killed Michigan," said Martin.
Some students, however, did fire a
few criticisms at Schembechler's cor-
ner, mainly at his decision to call a fake
punt which proved fatal to Michigan in

second-year graduate student Stan
Pearson.
ALTHOUGH A majority of the
students polled felt Schembechler was
not at fault for this year's problems, an
even greater majority said Schem-
bechler is generally overrated as a
coach.$
"Bo's got to quit resting on his
laurels," said Robert DeNecochea, a
student at the University of California,
