Bo - A perfect 10?

Page 1

Bo. No last name is needed to know who this story is
about. Over the years he has become virtually
synonomous with Michigan Football. He can be
brash, ornery and intimidating, but above all, he
likes to compete, he loves to win. Cover photo by
Brian Masck.
Improper etiquette Page 3
Although ska music no longer enjoys the popularity
it once experienced, England's Bad Manners proves
that they still have the proper rockin' etiquette to
keep this music alive and Thursday night at Second
Chance is how you'll find out. Also featured this week
is Ray Charles and his orchestra, along with the
Raelettes, at Hill Auditorium Thursday.

Tom Cruise sails into some rough waters with
Rebecca DeMornay in director Paul Brickman's
latest flick, Risky Business. The story revolves
around some real-life problems that occur when a
fantasy about establishing manhood comes true. See
this week's review for more intriguing details.

Elton John is not only standing, he's jumping for
joy about the success of his recent release, Too Low
for Zero. Also high on Elton's pleasure list is his
reunion with former musical buddies Bernie Taupin
and Nigel Olsen. Too Low for Zero is rumored to be
Elton's best effort in recent years.

Schembechler puts such students,
along with a majority of his freshmen
team some years, into the physical
education department-known for its
low admissions standards and
relatively light coursework.
A local high school coach also said
Schembechler's record in education is
less impressive than the one he has
compiled on the field. "I know a num-
ber of young players who have played
there and while I don't take their word
"00 percent, some of them have
questioned the emphasis on education,"
said Detroit Cooley High School head
football coach Ernie Thomas.
"And in some cases, (education)
hasn't been stressed. I know of an
athlete who had run-ins with Bo regar-
ding the books. The player would say,
'I've got to go to the library,' and Bo
would say, 'It's practice time,' " he
said. "In some cases it will come down
to that. I know that it has happened.
That one person has since graduated,
but he said, 'I had to make a choice and
I'm not playing much so I've got to
study.' He wasn't stripped of his
scholarship, but he was in the dog
Several current team members said,
however, that Schembechler does
everything he can to help them on and
off the field.
"He wants you to get your degree fir-
st and foremost," said Kerry Smith, a
senior running back. "He'll help you to
do it if you need tutors or whatever."
Senior offensive guard Stefan Hum-
phries, a standout in the classroom as
well as on the playing field, described
Schembechler as "very pro-
educational. That's one of the things
that encouraged me to choose
If a player doesn't make the grades,
Schembechler sees to it that they pay

for, and do not repeat, such an in-
"He's got a mandatory study table if
you get a 2.0 for a term," said Al Sin-
cich, a junior defensive lineman. "You
have to go two hours per night. That's
very good."
The fact that Schembechler keeps a
firm grip on his players both on and off
the field is nothing new. During a spring
practice a couple of years ago, the
Wolverine coach rallied his troops
around him at the end of the day's
"If you've got problems making
training table, you see me," he told
them. "If you've got problems with a
class, you see me. If you've got
problems with your health, you see
To this a Michigan player quipped,
loud enough for everyone to hear, "If
we've got woman problems can we see
No, Schembechler didn't care to ex-
tend his influence that far.
"He was like a father," said former
Wolverine Morton. "When you're 19 or
20 you think you're a big boy, but he'd
still lecture you. He kept a fairly tight
rein over us to keep us out of trouble."
To Schembechler, keeping his
players out of trouble means keeping
them away from the wrong
crowd-usually defined as pesky repor-
ters, sneaky agents, and students of-
fering strange cigarettes and pills
which cause funky visions that aren't,
heaven forbid, of X's and 0's.
T THOSE WHO know him best say
Schembechler has become
more personable with outsiders since
he had quadruple bypass heart surgery
in 1976.
"I think he's mellowed a little bit,"

said senior quarterback Steve Smith.
"People see the outside, hardcore Bo,
theGeneral type. They don't see him in
a meeting telling jokes.
"He recruited me personally. Before
I visited, I didn't want to go here," said
Smith. "I'd heard that he was a hard
guy, that he'd yell at you and stuff. The
first time I walked in his office, he was
smoking a pipe and he had his feet up on
the desk, just laid back."
Schembechler himself joked that his
health problems altered others'
opinions on him. "They thought to have
a heart attack,. first you have to have a
heart," he said. On a serious note,
Schembechler said his difficulties with
his heart have taught him to calm down
a bit. "Well, I'm learning. I may be a
slow learner, and I've been coaching 30
years. I know I can't keep it all in, but
you have to pick your spots and let off
Still, things are never dull around
Schembechler. When there is con-
troversy, you can be relatively sure of
two things-that he will either have an
opinion about it or will be in the center
of it fanning the flames.
Within the last year alone, Schem-
bechler has gotten into a heated
argument with reporters over the way
they quoted one of his players;
threatened to kick a reporter out of his
office for seeking comment on critical
remarks made about the coach;
declared war on the United States
Football League; went beserk on the
sidelines during a regular season game
against UCLA, storming out onto the
field and throwing his cap at a referee;
and said that Michigan fans who booed
as the Wolverines ran off the field at
halftime of a game against Indiana
could "go to hell."
But the bottom line is that Schem-
bechler's temper has not prevented him
