Excitable Bo pumped up for Big One


Ron Pollack


Michigan football


For Michigan head coach Bo Schem-
bechler, Ohio State week is a time when
the pulse races faster than usual.
"He's excited," assistant head coach
and defensive coordinator Gary
Moeller said. "He's mostly the same.
He's not as calm but he's not wild or
raging. It's a special week for him,
although he hasn't jumped over the
moon or anything."
In the not too distant future, the only
thing Schembechler may be jumping
over is the front porch of the football
coaches retirement home.
"THERE'S ONLY SO many Ohio
State games left in this ticker," said the
53-year-old Schembechler. "I'll quit
before I'm 60. As soon as I start getting
beat I'll quit. That's one thing I can't
hack. I really don't want to coach in my
Moeller said that it is hard to envision
Schembechler doing anything other
than coaching.
"I think he'll have a hard time with
that one," Moeller said.
Wolverine offensive guard Stefan
Humphries disagreed.
"I THINK BO has put in his time
coaching," Humphries said. "He's had
his problems. If you've seen some of the
times he's gotten excited you wish he'd
get out of coaching. Myself and my
fellow players worry about him and

sometimes worry that something might
happen when he gets so excited. If he'd
lose some weight I wouldn't worry so
much. He's carrying a few extra poun-
ds. I think he'd make a heck of an
athletic director with his charisma."
The athletic director's job is not in
Schembechler's plans. "If you're
talking about athletic administration,
no," Schembechler said.
Even though Humphries and his
teammates worry about the effects of
Schembechler's stormy outbursts and
overly excitable nature, the 15-year
Michigan coach believes he now takes
things much more in stride. He cited
the way in which he now handles the
time he must take to talk to the press on
"NOW IT'S kind of relaxing to put the
work away for a couple of hours,"
Schembechler said. "Before I resented
going. You took two hours out of my
time to talk to you dodos."
Ohio State quarterback Mike Tom-
czak and head coach Earle Bruce are
now enemies of the Wolverines, but
there was a time when Schembechler
tried to get them on his side.
"I'd have had Tomczak if I didn't
have (quarterback Steve) Smith,"
Schembechler said. "You know I'd
have had him. I tried to hire Earle out
of high school when I was at Miami

(Ohio). He turned me down."
There's some disagreement as to
whether this year's Michigan-Ohio
State game has lost some of its luster
since it will not decide the Big Ten's
Rose Bowl representative.
"Obviously this doesn't have the ap-
peal to some people because there's no
trip to the Rose Bowl," Moeller said.
"But the coaches, and I hope the
players, don't care as much about the
title and the Rose Bowl as everyone
thinks. It's Ohio State. To the coaches,
it's more important than any bowl
we've played in."
SMITH, HOWEVER, feels that some
of the mystique is gone from this year's
"You know that win or lose you won't
win the Big Ten Championship," Smith
said. "That's a little bit depressing. But
on the other hand, I think we'll get an
opportunity to be in a bowl against a
team that will really be a challenge,
probably more so than the Rose Bowl."
If the Wolverines beat the Buckeyes,

that bowl will be the Sugar Bowl against
Auburn. If Michigan loses, it will play
in the Fiesta Bowl where Pittsburgh is
its probable opponent.
But what if Michigan and Ohio State
"I'm not sure of the ramifications of
that," Schembechler said. "However, I
firmly believe if it ended up in a tie we
would undoubtedly go to the Sugar Bowl
because we would have finished second
in the conference ahead of Ohio State."
Tomorrow's game will be the last
time Michigan's seniors appear in
Michigan Stadium.
"I don't think it's hit me yet that it's
my last home game," center Tom
Dixon said. "It's a big deal, your last
game at Michigan Stadium. I'm looking
forward to it, but it'll bother me also."
Said Smith, "I guess it's just starting
to dawn on me a little bit more. It's my
last regular season game as a senior. I
guess I'm looking forward to it, but on
the other hand I can't believe it's over
and I just want to end on a good note."

Ic ersupfor Sp
ced backjto eliminate Northern Michigan
By TIM MAKINEN last weekend, 4-2 and 9-4.,

This is State weekend and emotions
are building to a feverish pitch.
One may conjure up images of scarlet
and gray legions assaulting Bo's boys.
But for the Michigan hockey team, it
means that the arch-rival Spartans of
Michigan State will invade Yost Ice
Arena tonight to begin a weekend of
fierce hockey. The Wolverines travel to
East Lansing tomorrow night to con-
clude the series.
"Everybody gets up for Michigan
State," Michigan coach John Giordano
THIS WEEKEND'S series is
especially important for the
Wolverines. Coming off a pair of losses
to Michigan Tech last weekend,
Michigan, now 2-4 in league play, needs
a turnaround and must prove it can
play against the CCHA's tougher op-
At 6-2, the Spartans are worthy op-
ponents. Their two losses came to
Bowling Green, but the Spartans boun-

Adding fuel to the Wolverine fire is
the fact that Michigan State knocked off
the Wolverines in all five encounters
last season. But it was the last encoun-

Giordano, while conceding the game
will be the typical hard-hitting, rough
Michigan - MSU confrontation, also
felt there was little chance the contest
would get out of control.
"WE RECRUITED several of those
guys (on State), and they are really
good kids," Giordano said. "So I don't
think it's bad blood, each team just
wants to get bragging rights. We have
been very disciplined after the whistle
so I don't see any reason for it to get out
of hand."
Carlile himself is not worried about
any retaliation, dismissing Mason's
remarks as "just talk." His enthusiasm
is emblematic of the atmosphere of the
Wolverine squad approaching tonight's
"We're fired up," exclaimed the
sophomore defenseman. "Everybody,
on the team knows they swept us last
year so we've got to win this one."
THIS YEAR'S Spartans are far from
the same Spartans that went to the
national playoffs last spring.
Unquestionably, the biggest loss for
State was the departure of All-
American goalie Scott.
Freshmen Norm Foster and Bob
Essensa have done a good job filling
Scott's pads so far. Foster made 49
saves against Northern Michigan and
sports a 2.61 goals against average.
Essensa is recovering from a muscle
pull but could. see action in the nets
against the Wolverines.
Up front Michigan State is led by
senior Newell Brown and 'left wings
Kelly Miller and Lyle Phair. Dan Mc-
Fall and Brad Beck anchor the Spartan
defense. But with the intensity involved
in this series, any player on either team
could rise up and provide his team with
"We don't like them and they don't
like us," said Wolverine co-captain Jim
Mason said, "Because it's such a
great rivalry, it's going to be great

Frats battle in mud...
.., dentists drill each other
Bruisers 8, Heberts 0: The wind was so strong during this game that Ross
Good of the Bruisers said, "If you were facing south you couldn't throw the
The Bruisers, however, were able to beat the Heberts despite the weather.
Not only did they win but they dominated the whole game. By the fourth
quarter the Bruisers were in so much control that they experimented with
new plays and new players.
"Our defensive rush, special teams, and great depth were the keys to our
victory," said Good.
The Bruisers scored their touchdown on a 10-yard pass from quarterback
Tony Zambelli to Rick Katz.
Alpha Delta Phi 22, Chi Phi 0: Alpha Delta Phi's defense was the key to
this game's outcome. Both teams played with conservative, controlled of-
fenses. Alpha Delta Phi's defense, more aggresive than Chi Phi's provided
the win on a number of important plays.
Two of Alpha Delta Phi's touchdowns, for example, resulted from inter-
ception returns. On the last play of the game, Mike Gaiss almost scored a
third touchdown on an interception, but he was caught at the two-yard line.
Alpha Delta Phi's other touchdown was scored by quarterback Ken Neods
on a 40-yard run.
Phi Delta Theta 12, Sigma Nu 6: This game could have been named the
"mudbowl." Both teams found manuevering difficult in the one inch of mud
they were forced to play in. Phi Delta Theta was able to overcome the con-
ditions and edge Sigma Nu by one touchdown.
Sean Insalaco of Phi Delta Theta said,"The whole team deserves to be
commended. There were really no (individual) standouts."
Credit must be given to Scott Walbinger, however, who scored both of Phi
Delta Theta's touchdowns. He scored the first- by catching a 10-yard
pass, while the second came on a 60-yard punt return.
D1-B, 28, D2-B 0: In probably one of the most enthusiastic games of the
season, the Future Dentists beat the Future Dentists. Yes, both these teams
are composed of first-year dental school students, turning the game into an
exciting event. Over 50 persons, mostly other dental students, showed up to
watch the game.
"The game was hard hitting and competitive, but still friendly," said Bill
Short, a member of D1-B. "Afterwards we went out and drank heavily."
Tom Friedal played an outstanding game for D1-B as he intercepted three
passes, caught two touchdown passes and threw one touchdown pass.
The players of both teams dedicated the game to Keith Wong, a fellow den-
tal student who was unable to make the game because of a serious illness.

... no retaliation
ter, a 2-1 loss for the Blue, that sticks
out in many fans' minds.
In that game, a total of 31 penalties
were called. The climax occured when
Michigan defenseman Todd Carlile
plowed over Spartan goalie Ron Scott.
A bench-clearing brawl ensued. The
play was either a smart move or a
malicious attack depending on whether
you wear blue or green. After the game,
State coach Ron Mason said Carlile
could "expect retaliation."
MASON HAS cooled down con-
siderably since then and does not
believe tonight or tomorrow's game
will get out of hand.
"Since Scott is gone (drafted by the
NHL), I don't see any carry-over from
that incident," said Mason. "If they
want to hit, we can hit. If they want to
skate, we'll skate with them. We've got
good self-control and it's up to the
ficials to call what they see."
