Smith 's return uncertain

By LARRY MISHKIN
Despite leading Michigan to a 20-17 season-opening
victory over Washington State on Saturday, quarter-
back David Hall's status as a starter will become a
day-to-day decision. That decision, however, will not
be made by Bo Schembechler, but instead by the doc-
tor currently attending to Steve Smith.
"Whenever they say he can go, he goes," said
Schembechler of Smith at the coach's weekly press
luncheon yesterday. "I don't hold the key there. I'm
not a doctor."
FOR NOT holding an M.D. degree, though, Bo was
able to give a rather complete medical update of
Smith which still left the Grand Blanc, native's status
uncertain.
Smith originally dislocated his right shoulder in
last year's Rose Bowl loss to UCLA but had been
'proclaimed 100 percent fit upon his arrival to Ann Ar-
bor this fall. But during pre-season practices, Smith
developed an irritation in his throwing arm that was
serious enough to force him to miss Saturday's game.

"(Smith's injury) is no longer a structural
problem," said Schembechler. "The joint is solid, but
the irritation prevents him from throwing. Contact is
no problem, just his inability to throw."
AND JUST how long will this inability to throw a
football last?
"At this time we are encouraged with his con-
dition," said Schembechler, "But the only known
cure to man for this is rest.
"If Smith is ready to go I'll play him, I can assure
you. He'll have to have a good week of practice. I
don't want to play him this week if he'll be out for the
next three weeks because he played."
BO ALSO denied any rumors that he was planning
to redshirt Smith this season, saying the injury was
not the kind that one is redshirted for.
While all of this talk about Smith's health may be
confusing and frustrating to most Wolverine fans, it
is Hall who must go out to practice each day and
prepare for Saturday's game, knowing that he could
lose his job once Smith is proclaimed healthy. Yet
this state of uncertainty has not diminished Hall's en-
thusiasm to play.
"It's a day-to-day thing, but I'm always hoping to
play," said Hall, who completed eight of 14 passes for
50 yards in Saturday's win. "At game time the
coaches will decide to start whoever is playing the

best at that time. I keep doing my best, but it comes
with the territory, (Schembechler) decides who
plays. I would like to play every game, but it's
Schembechler's perogative."
FOR HIS part, Schembechler said that he was not
disenchanted with Hall and never really considered
using Smith against Washington State, even when the
Cougars had taken the lead late in the game.
Schembechler did say he was unhappy that he
didn't get a chance to call more pass plays on Satur-
day and that accumulating only 50 yards through the
air was ridiculous.
Also disappointing was the lack of any passes
thrown to senior wide receiver Vince Bean who is ex-
pected to pick up the slack in receiving in place of An-
thon Carter. When asked if he would throw more to
Bean this week, Schembechler replied, "I think so or
he may go home."
Despite all the problems with determining starting
line-ups however, Hall said that his relationship with
Smith and sophomore Jim Harbaugh was a good one.
'All of us are doing our best," said the senior from
Livonia. "We're friendly towards one another and
striving against ourselves rather than against each
other. We try to help each other and figure out the
best way to do things."

Tarkenton seven seasons, was not im-

"a total disappointment as a football
player."
Yary said he believed the Vikings
would have won their 1976 Super Bowl
game against Oakland if Coach Bud
Grant had started Bob Lee, also a Min-
nesota quarterback. Tarkenton started
and the Vikings lost 32-14.
Yary, a seven-year Pro Bowl player
who started 13 seasons for the Vikings,
was interviewed two years ago while
playing his 14th and final season for
Minnesota. His career ended last
season with the Los Angeles Rams.
Yary said Tommy Kramer, who suc-
ceeded Tarkenton as the Vikings' top
quarterback, was the best one Min-
nesota ever had.

Don't Let a Bad Break
Disrupt Your College Budget
Whether it's an intramural football injury or a surprise attack of appendicitis,
an unanticipated sickness or accident can result in large medical bills.
And if you're like most college students, your budget doesn't allow for any
"bad breaks."
That's why it's a good idea to help protect yourself against the medical
expenses of an unexpected sickness or accident by enrolling now in the
1983-1984 Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan, approved by the MSA for
University of Michigan students and their dependents.
Underwritten by Mutual of Omaha, this plan provides hospital-surgical
protection for covered sickness and accidents - plus benefits for X-rays,
