By JOHN KERR
Five years ago, Bo would have been
livid.
But now a loss - even the gut-
wrenching kind the Wolverinenes went
through last Saturday - fails to faze
Schembechler.He takes it all in stride.
PERHAPS THE reason Schem-
bechler can handle losses like last
week's is that he has become ac-,
customed to them. Bo has lost only 29
games at Michigan, but over 30 percent
of those losses came in games which
Michigan failed to convert a last second
scoring opportunity that would have
given it a win.
Here's a refresher for those with
short memory.
" 1973 - Michigan 10, Ohio State 10
Kicker Mike Lantry misses a 34 yard
field goal with 28 seconds left.
" 1974 - Ohio State 12, Michigan 10
Lantry again fails to convert. He
misses a 33-yarder with 18 seconds left.
* 1976 - Purdue 16, Michigan 14
Michigan losses its top ranking when
a 37 yard Bob Wood field goal attempt

sails wide with 13 seconds remaining.
- 1978 - Washington 27, Michigan 20
Late Michigan drive stalls when a
Rick Leach pass is picked off at the goal
line as time is running out.
* 1979 - Notre Dame 12, Michigan 10
Irish block a Brian Virgil field goal
from the 35 yard range with less than a
minute to play.
- 1979 - Purdue 24, Michigan 21
Michigan drives inside the Purdue
five with under a minute to go, but can't
score.
* 1980 - South Carolina 17, Michigan
14
Michigan drives 74 yards to S.C. six
with 28 seconds to go, but can't score on
four plays.
- 1982 - UCLA 31, Michigan 27
Michigan gets inside Bruin ten with
20 seconds left, but once again comes up
empty.
Add last week's loss, in which kicker
Todd Schlopy missed a 32 yarder that
would have clinched a victory, to the
list and you have a very disturbing pat-
tern. Sure, the Wolverines have won a

couple games with last second scores,
but those are few and far between.
What is it about a Schembechler
coached team that makes it come up
short in the close games?
YESTERDAY AT the weekly press
luncheon Bo offered some explanation.
"Sometimes you say 'all I got to do is
come away with some points and I got
you' - you don't go for the touchdown,"
he said.

That's exactly what the Michigan
coach did in the fourth quarter against
the Huskies. The Wolverines had a
second and five situation at the
Washington 15 and instead of playing
for six points, Bo called a conservatiVe
play and later had to settle for a field
goal attempt.
"I lost the game on second down,'h le
said. "Damn off -tackle play. I didn't
want to call it. I called a bad play." a

'Don't expect Monte Clark
to dance with the referee

From the Bench, which begins today, will be
a regular feature in the Daily following all
Lions' home games.
By SCOTT McKINLAY
Being a ballboy for the Detroit Lions
offers me a unique look at the team,
both on the field and in the lockerroom.
As a result, I see and hear an unedited,
distortion free version of the Lions.
Perhaps the Lions' 30-14 loss on Sun-
day to the Atlanta Falcons could best be

summarized during Detroit's opening
drive. On third down, Monte Clark
thought Atlanta was offsides and he let
the line judge know it. A futile
argument ensued with Clark ending his
comments to the official. "There's a
place for you. It's called the USFL."
It didn't take Clark long to make an
enemy. Monte always lets the officials
know just how he feels.
Later in the first quarter, Clark was
upset with a completed Atlanta pass
GRIDDE
If you saw someone sizzling on the
way to class this morning, chances are
it was Bill Cherniak, last week's Grid-
des picks winner. Bill picked 16 win-
ners, and-has been rewarded for his in-
sight with a small one-item pizza from
Pizza Bob's.
You can drop your forms in Pizza
Bob's on State Street or in the midtown
store on Church Street. Include your
name, address and phone number with
your picks. Selections must be in by
midnight on Friday.

that he thought was out of bounds
causing him to proclaim to the referee,
"What the hell's the matter with you?
Can't you see? You guys cost us the
game last week and now you're going to
cost us this one!" Seconds later the
scoreboard 'in the Silverdome flashed
the replay, showing that the catch was
good.
Did the officials cause the Lions to
lose the game on Sunday? I think not. If
that's the case, let's hope the officials
stay out of Minnesota this weekend
when Detroit faces the Vikings.
FROM THE LOCKERROOM...Eric
Hipple draws the Nike stripe on the side
of his shoe with magic marker. Low
budget you ask? Not quite Hipple's
ankle has been sore so he gets it taped
up each game. The tape covers almost
the entire shoe. and unfortunately the
stripe gets covered. Hipple, however,
has a contract with Nike to advertise
for them by wearing their shoe, so he
must draw on the trademark stripe.
...When I asked wide receiver Jeff
Chadwick why his hair was so long in
his picture in the game program, he
said, "Because when I first got here I
didn't have any money to get it cut."
Couldn't Lions owner William Clay
Ford have fronted Chad ten bucks?
