By RON POLLACK
The Auburn Tigers are a team
Michigan head coach Bo Schembechler
can respect. They are also a team he
will have a heck of a time preparing for.
Schembechler respects the
Wolverines' Sugar Bowl opponent
because it plays football the way he
feels the game was meant to be played
- it runs the football over and over and
over, and plays good, solid defense as
well.
HE WILL HAVE a tough time
preparing for the Tigers because they
use a wishbone offense which is vir-
tually extinct in college circles these
days.
"It's a different concept," Schem-
bechler said. "Our defense is set for
pass-oriented teams. Now we'll face a
team like we used to in our conference.
The wishbone is a unique attack. It's
not so much the option, but a lead block
who can chop you down.
"The problem is if you don't face it
that much, it's better for the team that
uses it. How do we effectively practice
it against our defense? I'll have to talk
to a lot of people about it since we
haven't faced it (in a number of
years)."
ALTHOUGH SOME people might
consider the wishbone to be a boring
style of play, Schembechler finds it
rather exciting.

"If I ran that type of offense with
modest success you'd say it's neander-
thal football," Schembechler said. "It
looks like nothing, but that dive play is
a bear. When you've got backs like that,
the other team has one hell of a
problem. It's not boring to me. I enjoy
it."
One of the drawbacks to the option is
that teams do not usually pass efficien-
tly out of it. Schembechler noted,
however, that the wishbone allows a
receiver to get single coverage.
"YOU CAN'T PUSH threb backs into
the backfield and pass effectively,"
Schembechler said. "But they can force
single coverage on the split end or
you'll never stop the wishbone.
"They're not going to pass the ball,
hell no. I wouldn't pass either if I had
those stallions."
Outside of the Auburn wishbone,
Schembechler's press conference was
an opportunity for the Wolverine coach
to relax, speculate, throw in an assor-
tment of one liners, offer cigars to
reporters and get friendly with an
Auburn football writer. Among Schem-
bechler's more quotable comments:
" On the fact that he came charging
out of the tunnel at the beginning of the
Ohio State game and jumped up to
touch the banner: "I've never done
that. I came out there and I was jacked.
I looked at that and said 'nah.' Then

iger wis
'yeah.' I'd have been embarrassed if I'd
come up short."
" On the fact that Auburn has a run-
ning back with Schembechler's first
name, Bo Jackson: "He's got to be
good. You've got to figure he's good."
* On how the Michigan-Auburn game
should be billed: "The Michigan air at-
tack against the Auburn run attack. Air
Wolverine."
" On the Michigan fans during the
Ohio State game: "That was a hell of a
spectacle in that stadium."
* On Illinois: "I know we're a better
team than them, but we didn't play well
against them."
" On how much of New Orleans his
players will be able to see: "We don't
go home right after the game so if they
want to walk down Bourbon Street and

say hello to everyone they'll have time
then."
* On defensive back Brad Cochran
who quit the team last year, cane back
in the fall, and, on Saturday, intercep-
ted two passes against Ohio State: "I
want you to know that when he came
back we had 23 defensive backs and he
was 23rd. By opening day he was a star-
ter. That tells you something."
INJURY UPDATE: Receiver Trian-
do Markray underwent arthroscopic
surgery yesterday. Schembechler said
he did not know how serious Markray's
knee injury is. Offensive guard Jerry
Diorio has a sprained knee and defen-
sive tackle Vince DeFelice's ankle will
be in a cast for a week, although
Schembechler said both should be
healthy for the Sugar Bowl.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - The Michigan
Men's Cross Country team finished a
disappointing 17th place yesterday at
the NCAA Cross Country champion-

finished first.
Lehigh University was the sight
where the top collegiate long distance
runners and top teams gathered.
Michigan earned its place in the field by
finishing second at last weekend's
District qualifying.
UTEP WON the event with a low
team score of 108, while defending

scoring points for a team total.
Leading Michigan in the 10,000-meter
cross-country run was senior Brian
Diemer, who finished 58th overall
(31:05.7). Junior Bill Brady was 67th
(31:12.8), junior Dennis Keane placed
99th (31:31.4), David Meyer was 108th
(31:39.4) and Chris Brewster finished
110th (31:43.9). Not scoring points for
Michigan were Doug Heikkinen and
Jim Schmidt, who finished 137th and
138th respectively.
Zakaria Barie of Texas-El Paso won
the race in 29:20.0, followed by Yobef
Omdieki of Iowa State and John Easker
of Wisconsin.

Reality. In terms of the Michigan
wrestling team it is the difference bet-
ween the Wolverine Open and the 450-
wrestler Ohio Open. Michigan did not
totally dominate as they did at home
last week. They did show, however, that
they are a very strongteam.
The Wolverines took fourth in the
tournament, behind eventual champion
Michigan State, Cleveland State and
Northwestern. The fourth-place finish,
though definitely respectable, did not
truly demonstrate how good the team
really is.

tached while pending a decision as to
whether he will 'redshirt' this season,
so his performance did not count.
toward team score. Michigan was also
hurt by the early withdrawal of Mike
DerGarabedian at 134 lbs. 'D-Man,' as
he is called, got bumped pretty hard on
the shoulder in his third match. Though
he went on to win the match, Bahr
withdrew him after it. Bahr explained,
"It's only November. If a wrestler is
even slightly injuried, I'm gonna yank
him."
THE POINTS those two wrestlers
would have received could have easily
placed Michigan up with both MSU and
Cleveland State.
"I'm really not worried about the
team's finish right now," said Bahr.
"In these early open tournaments we're
looking at our balance and more on in-
dividual matchups."
On that account, the coach had good
reason to be satisfied. Once again, Joe
McFarland wrestled up to his No. 1
national ranking, giving the Wolverines
their only individual championship at
126 lbs. Michigan also showed con-
sistency in the upper weights with the
three big men, Scott Rechsteiner (177),
Kirk Trost (190), and Rob Rechsteiner
(hwt.) remaining in the forefront of
their divisions, placing 2nd, 2nd and 3rd
respectively. GARY EFFMAN
Tumblers place twelfth
The Michigan men's gymnastics
team finished 12th in the Windy City In-
vitational in Chicago this weekend,
competing against the nation's best

teams. Brock Orwig, Gavin Meyerowitz
and Merrick Horn, performed well for
the Wolverines, adding strength and
leadership to the team, according to
head coach Bob Darden.
Nebraska led the competition,
finishing first, while Iowa placed
second and Ohio State third. Michigan
ended up 12th scoring a 252.95.
"The Windy City was an outstanding.
test for us, especially our freshman,"
Darden said. "All but one or two of the
nation's top teams were there, in-
cluding five-time national champs
Nebraska."
Freshmen Orwig and Meyerowitz
displayed potential for the youthful
Wolverine squad, Darden said. Orwig
placed tenth on the high bar with a
score of 9.35 and Meyerowitz finished
12th on the pommel horse, also with a
9.35. Senior captain Horn excelled on
the parallel bars with a 9.12 and a 12th-
place finish.
"We went out there to improve our
overall score and I feel we achieved
that overall goal," Darden continued.
Michigan's next match will be next

tied the game on a pass to make the
