The Ohio State Buckeyes. Rex Kern and Archie Griffin and Jack Tatum
and Randy Gradishar and Champ Henson . . . the names will be with me
forever. Because I was a Buckeye for the first 18 years of my life, born and
raised in the Ann Arbor-sized town of Canton.
While Clevelanders aren't unanimous in their identification with The Ohio
State University, 50 mires south in Canton, there is no other way to go than
Scarlet and Gray.
So I was a Michigan-hater in November of 1969, when rookie coach Bo
Schembechler's Wolverines stunned Kern, Tatum, Jim Stillwagon, Jan
White, and the rest of those defending national champion Buckeyes by a 24-
12 count. It was hard for a nine-year old to figure out; the Buckeyes were the
better team, so why didn't they win? As I was to learn, there is never any
way to figure out this Michigan-Ohio State game, no matter how old and wise
one becomes.
The 1973 matchup stands out in my memory perhaps as much as any foot-
ball game I've ever seen. Michigan was 10-0, its defense having recorded
three shutouts during the campaign. Ohio State came to Michigan Stadium
at 10-0, as well, with four shutouts and an offense explosive enough to score
at least 35 points six times in the season.
It was a football game which added a new dimension to the adjective
classic.
The Buckeyes jumped on top early and held a 10-0 advantage at halftime,
but it was a different ball game in the second half. Woody Hayes decided to
sit on the lead, and it cost the Ohioans the national championship. The old
coach instructed quarterback Cornelius Greene to hand the ball off to the
great Griffin time after time. No back can carry an attack by himself again-
st a Michigan defense, and the game's momentum turned quickly.
Wolverine fullback Ed Shuttlesworth pounded away at a tired Buckeye
defense, Dennis Franklin scored the tying touchdown, and it ended in a 10-10
deadlock, as Michigan's Mike Lantry barely missed two fourth period field
goals.
Then came the decision that still sends Schembechler into an outrage
when discussed, the one that sent Ohio State to the Rose Bowl. But every
time Schembechler begins his tirade, I look at it from the Ohio standpoint;
Woody choked, and if he hadn't, the Buckeyes would have ridden their 42-21
Rose Bowl rout of Southern Cal to a national title.
That game reinforced my anti-Michigan outlook;.the next two Buckeye
victories over the Blue only began to satisfice this Ohioan's feelings of
vengeance. Then the rivalry shifted gears, as Rick Leach led the Wolverines
to wins in 1976 and 1977, and it was apparent in Buckeyeland that Woody
Hayes was on the downswing.
The old man was no longer calling most of the shots in Columbus; assistan-
ts George Hill and George Chaump were playing more and more vital roles.
Everybody seemed to be down on Woody for his "big game" failures. His
players were so enraged by his conservative coaching in the '73 tie with
Michigan that they considered turning down the bowl invitation.
But all that didn't seem to matter to me anymore because I enrolled at
Michigan for the 1978-79 school year. Originally, my allegiance remained
with the Buckeyes. They had recruited a high school quarterback named Art
Schlichter who would make everybody in the Big Ten forget that Rick Leach
ever existed. After all, I was going to Michigan for academics; I didn't have
to root for Schembechler's squad.
During that summer before the '78-79 school year, however, a strange
thing happened. I often found myself the target of anti-Wolverine remarks,
and I started to defend the Maize and Blue.
"How can you compare Schlichter with Leach .. . the guy hasn't even
played a game yet?. . . (Tom) Cousineau is no better than (Ron) Simpkins..
everybody knows Woody is senile... 'put your money where your mouth
1s..."
I loved Michigan before I even set foot on the campus.
Now there is no ambivalence about my loyalties-I would like nothing bet
ter than to see the young, incredibly-improved Wolverine defense shut down
Schlichter, Doug Donley, and the rest of the Bucks. The anticipation is as ex-
citing as ever; it's hard to imagine any more potent college rivalry. But now
when I gripe about conservative coaching and bowl game blues, the words
are directed towards Bo rather than Woody.
