Bo won't stop to

smell the roses

By BOB WOJNOWSKI
Michigan may have already clinched the Big Ten
Championship and the Rose Bowl bid, but head coach
Bo Schembechler preferred to talk Buckeyes instead
of roses yesterday at his weekly press luncheon, as he
began gearing up for the annual season-ending bash
with Ohio State.
"I don't think you understand. We play Ohio State
in Columbus. Don't you know the schedule?" joked
Bo when queried about the Wolverines' possible New
Year's Day opponent. "The Rose Bowl is important,
but right now I don't know what went on on the West
Coast and I don't'care. It's not the time for that yet."
BUT IT IS finally time to talk about the Buckeyes
and the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry, and Schem-
echler did just that.
"It's ironic that with all the other stuff going on in
the conference, there's no question that they
(Michigan and Ohio State) are still the best two
teams in the league," he said. "It all boils down to
Michigan and Ohio State-just like we thought it
would."
However, for the first time since 1971, the game will
not determine the Big Ten champion because the
Buckeyes have lost one conference game and play.

one less league game than the undefeated (8-2
overall) Wolverines. And it is that scheduling quirk
that has the Buckeyes groaning.
"I DON'T have anything to do with scheduling,''
said Schembechler. "There are two ways to look at it.
It's unfortunate for Ohio State to play one less game
or it's fortunate that they didn't have to play Iowa,
which has been one of the best teams in the conferen-
ce.
"People knew the rules before they came into the
season," he continued. "I'm going to say one thing
and then drop the subject-at least it's not going to
come down to a vote."
In 1973, Michigan and Ohio State tied for the con-
ference championship after playing to a 10-10 tie, and
the league's athletic directors voted to send the
Buckeyes to the Rose Bowl. There will be no repeat of
that, but Schembechler is wary of a repeat of last
year's game, when the Buckeyes beat the
Wolverines, 14-9.
"IT'S VIRTUALLY the same Ohio State team we
played last year," said Bo. "Other than (quarterback
Art) Schlicter, the offense is the same. And other
than the middle guard and a couple of linebackers,
it's still the same defense."

While Ohio State has changed little trom a year
ago, Michigan has changed drastically, and Schem-
bechler likes the final product as much as any team
he hashad.
"It's hard to rate teams, but this team doesn't have
as many superstars as other ones," he said. "It's not
as well endowed. But it has character, good leader-
ship, good seniors-all the intangibles."
And Schembechler made it clear that, even though
the title is already won, those attributes would make
it an intense week of practice.
"I don't give a damn what people say," he railed.
"We're playing Ohio State. They point for us and we
point for them."
WOLVERINE TALES: The offensive and defen-
sive players of the week as selected by the coaching
staff are tight end Craig Dunaway and nose guard Al
Sincich ... Ohio State has not scored a touchdown at
home against Michigan since 1972. . . Michigan's Big
Ten title is its 10th in Schembechler's 14 years of
coaching the Wolverines and its 31st overall . . .
Neither team suffered any debilitating injuries last
Saturday and both should be in good health for this
weekend's clash.

-yet
It's looking more and more like
another Michigan-Washington mat-
chup in the Rose Bowl. The Huskies
nipped previously-undefeated
Arizona State last Saturday, 17-13,
and now need only to defeat
Washington State on the road this
weekend to wrap up the Rose Bowl
bid. Should Washington lose,
Arizona State could get the bid by
defeating Arizona on the road a
week later. Should both Arizona
State and Washington lose, UCLA
could sneak in with a victory over
USC this weekend. Michigan lost to
Washington, 27-20, in the 1978 Rose
Bowl, then defeated the Huskies, 23-
6, in the 1981 classic.
It was also announed yesterday
that this Saturday's Michigan-Ohio
State game would be nationally
televised by CBS. It wil be the
Wolverines' third consecutive TV
appearance and their fourth overall
this year. Game time has been
moved ahead to 12:30 p.m.

Michigan Grid Statistics

TEAM

By JIM DAVIS
Michigan's football team was not the only Wolverine squad
to win a title this past Saturday. But while the Wolverine
gridders won the Big Ten crown, the Michigan women's cross
country team was triumphing in the NCAA District 4 Cham-
pionships at Purdue.
The first-place finish reversed the standings of last week's
*ig Ten Championships. Iowa was bumped from first to
third, with the Wolverines making the opposite switch.
Wisconsin placed second in both meets. The weekend victory
qualified Michigan for the National Championships for the
first time in team history.
"We had our heads together for this one," said Michigan
head coach Francie Kraker Goodridge. "We turned the
tables on them."
Junior Lisa Larsen once again paced the Wolverines as she
finished fifth in 17:07. She was followed by senior Melanie
Weaver in seventh at 17:30 and Sue Schroeder in ninth at
17:37.
Other Michigan placers were Sue Frederick-Foster in 19th
and Judy Yuhn in 25th. The Wolverines won the meet by
seven points over Wisconsin and by nine over Iowa.
Weaver said the 5,000 Imeter course was fairly hilly and
that the temperature was about 23 degrees, prompting the
runners to wear long sleeves and tights under uniforms. But,
she added, capturing first place wa' worth the effort. "I'm
very happy with the team finish," she said.
"This is such a wonderful thing," Goodridge said. "This
was our goal for the whole year, to get to the Nationals."

She pointed to Virginia as the favorite to successfully
defend its national title, with Stanford, Oregon, Clemson, and
Tennessee also expected to make strong showings. "After
that it will be quite a race and we have a good chance to place
right up there," said Goodridge.
The Nationals will be next Saturday at Indiana.
Men harriers finish second
The men's cross country team .also qualified for the
National Championships as it grabbed second place in the
Districts, finishing behind Wisconsin's powerful squad.
Miami of Ohio and Purdue took third and fourth, respec-
tively, and also qualified for the national meet.
Junior Brian Diemer took third place at 29:59; seven
seconds behind Tim Hacker of Wisconsin and a tick behind
Indiana's Jim Spivey, who won the Big Ten race. Michigan
senior Gerard Donakowski finished in eighth place at 30:06.
Other Michigan placers were Bill O'Reilly in 19th, Bill
Brady in 28th, and Jim Schmidt in 30th.
Diemer said the 10,000-meter course was "excellent," and
that the team will be shooting for the top five in the Nationals.
"We have a chance," he said, "and we'll certainly make the
top ten."
Next Saturday's meet will be at Indiana University, the
site of a Wolverine victory on October 23 over several good
cross country teams, including highly touted Texas El-Paso.

wrestling
season
opener

By STEVE WISE
If Rodney Dangerfield was present at
the Great Plains Open last weekend,
the members of the Michigan wrestling
team didn't seem to realize it. Rather
than'giving their opponents no
respect, the Michigan wrestlers showed
more than was needed.
"I think we gave some of those guys a
little too much credit," said assistant
coach Joe Wells. "some of them had
reputations - they were national
champions - and we didn't just go af-
ter 'em."
TWO MATMEN who had no problem
with "The Dangerfield syndrome"
were sophomore Scott Rechsteiner
and graduate assistant Steve Fraser,
both of whom finished third. The two
were 5-1 in the tournament, losing only
to the eventual champions in their
weight classes.
Rechsteiner lost his initial match on a

decision to University of Nebraska
assistant coach Roy Oliver. The
sophomore then went on to win his
remaining matches, defeating, among
others, former All-American Eric
Bragel. Bragel is presently an
assistant coach at the University of
Missouri.
Fraser, who like the other non-colleg-
ians was allowed to compete under the
tournament's freestyle format, went
undefeated through his first five mat-
ches. In his sixth match, he lost to Iowa
assistant and two-time former NCAA
champion Chris Campbell.
"Overall I was pleased," Wells
remarked. "Our conditioning looked
good, which is important because we're
picking up the pace. It's hard to tell
how you're going to react (to a large
meet). It's also hard to tell from
freestyle how our conditioning was
tested, but I was pleased."

By LARRY MISHKIN
Following last year's successful
season that saw it reach the AIAW
finals, the Michigan women's volleyball
team has been struggling this season,
its first in the NCAA.
A four game loss to Iowa last Friday
night at Iowa, 11-15, 15-5, 8-15, and 14-16
dropped Michigan's Big Ten record to
3-9 with one conference match
remaining on the schedule - tonight's
contest with Ohio State at Columbus.

The Buckeyes are second in the
Eastern Division of the Big Ten and the
Wolverines are a distant third. Only the
top two teams in each division qualify
for the Big Ten tournament which takes
place on November 19 at Purdue.
ALISON NOBLE, as she has done all
season, turned in another fine perfor-
mance with 15 kills and a season high
.650 spiking percentage.
Saturday night, the Wolverines
looked better when they won a five
game match against Western Illinois in

Macomb, Ill., 9-15, 15-6, 15-9, 11-15, and
15-13. The win boosted Michigan's
overall record to 11-17, a far cry from
their 40-17 record of a year ago.
Michigan head coach Sandy Vong
was pleased with his team's win, saying.
that they looked and passed better.
Vong also said that he would like to
see the team close out the season strong
by beating Ohio State tonight. The
Buckeyes, who are tournament bound,
will also be Michigan's first opponent
next season.
