Clock and Bo ticked off

Daily Photo by MATT PETRIE'
Bo Schembechler and quarterback Jim Harbaugh hope to duplicate last weekend's performance this Saturday
against Maryland.
WE GET IT FREE, 9ug

By MIKE REDSTONE
A jubilant and quick-witted Bo
Schembechler spent most of his
weekly football luncheon discussing
the intricacies of playing a football
game with a bunch of Southern in-
dependent officials.
In doing so, Schembechler poked
fun at the head official, who flagged
the Wolverines 13 times for 107 yards
during Saturday's 34-3 triumph.
BO'S BIG beef against the head of-
ficial was that the 25-second clock was
repeatedly being turned on too soon.
This prevented Michigan players
from going into motion, resulting in
several delay penalties.
"I've never seen anything like that
(the officiating) as long as I've been
around," said the '23rd-year coach.
"That guy (the head official) was
ridiculous. He took us completely out
of our offense. He took them (South
Carolina) out too.
"He was so dumb he didn't even
know he did it. He thought he was so
slick."
SCHEMBECHLER went on to
praise most of his offensive and
defensive units, but emphasized his
feeling that next weekend's game
against Maryland will be the toughest
test for his Wolverines so far this
year.
"We're not good enough yet. Run-
ning, passing, defense, kicking -
we've got to get better. We know
that," said Schembechler. "The
defense is going to come under a
tremendous assault this week. They'll
be put to the test against Maryland,
but they'll respond."
Although Schembechler would not
specify which line he was more
pleased with so far this year, he did
say that there was "no comparison"
regarding the improvement of this
year's offensive line over last
season's.
ONE PROBLEM which Schem-
bechler addressed specifically was
the fact that he would like to get his
flankers more involved in the offen-
sive scheme.
"I've got to get more production out
of the flanker," said Schembechler,
who was pleased with Paul Jokisch's
afternoon (five receptions for 115 yar-
ds). "They've been missing some
reads."
-With Erik Campbell still sidelined

with a separated shoulder, Schem-
bechler will be experimenting with his
punt returning specialists. Freshman
John Kolesar, 6-0, 190, could see some
action at that position against
Maryland.
-Linebacker Mike Mallory, a pre-
season All-America selection, is still
listed as questionable for the
Maryland game after suffering a

pulled hamstring against Notre
Dame.
-Bob Tabachino should be back to
practice by this afternoon, according
to Schembechler. The 6-1, 263 pound
offensive guard strained a muscle
during pre-game warmups against
South Carolina and saw limited action
in that game.

UPI Top Twenty

Michigan's first 2-0 start since 1978
is starting to pay dividends in the
college football polls.
The Wolverines, with 250 points,
jumped from 15th to ninth in the UPI
rankings. The last time Michigan
cracked the Top Ten was after last
year's upset victory over Miami
(Fla.) in the season opener.
The gridders are also ranked 11th
in the USA Today/CNN and ESPN
polls.
Last week's foe, South Carolina (2-
1), fell out of the Top
Twenty after previously ranked
11th, and Saturday's opponent,
Maryland (2-1), is ranked 15th.
Auburn retained its number one
position, receiving 32 first place
votes. Michigan received one first
place vote.

What's a baseball season without an
Billy Martin controversy?
First it was Reggie Jackson who
tried to bring the on-again, off-again
Yankee skipper to his senses. Then a
marshmallow salesman from Duluth
attempted to right Billy's ways. But it
took pitcher Ed Whitson to finally
convince Martin to play Griddes.
"Steinbrenner plays Griddes," Billy
was heard yelling in a Baltimore bar
Saturday night. "That's reason
enough for me to avoid it."
Whitson and several bar patrons
calmly tried to persuade the cranky
Yankee of the merits of Griddes - the
choice of full-tray Sicilian pizza or
Chicago stuffed pizza or whole sub-
inarine sandwich that goes to the
winner. And when they described the
joy that one can experience when in
possession of a Dooley guest pass,
good for two, Martin was almost won
over.

XC.:

But Whitson made a near-fatal
mistake. As a parting comment, he
said, "Earl Weaver plays every
week," at which point Martin went
berserk, and started punching "doh-
gies" and anyone else who got in his
way.
When the dust settled, Whitson and
Martin were spotted in the corner of
the saloon. Whitson held Martin's
arm behind his back, and twisted it
until it broke. "Now will you play
Griddes?" Whitson screamed.
"Just this once," said Martin.
The American League office has
requested that we keep Billy's picks
private, but we can report that he
took a special interest in Game 15.
