Injuries, tough Big

Ten race worr Bo.

By JOE EWING
Michigan may have made it through its tough non-
conference schedule unscathed, but according to head
coach Bo Schembechler, things aren't going to get any
easier as the Wolverines enter Big Ten play this week
against Wisconsin.
The power in the conference is more evenly distributed,
Schembechler said at his weekly press luncheon yester-
day at Weber's Inn. It's no longer the Big Two, Little
Eight league that Michigan and Ohio State dominated
during the 1970s. Instead, it is one of the strongest con-
ferences in the country.
"PARITY IS here," said Schembechler. "I do think
the Big Ten is strong, I don't think anyone can argue with
that. This year particularly I don't see another league in
the country that can match it."
Recent polls have supported Schembechler's claims on
the strength of the league. Yesterday CNN/USA Today
and the Associated Press picked Big Ten foe Iowa as the
top team in the country, while Michigan and Ohio State
also cracked the Top Ten in both polls. But the 17-year
Wolverine top man downplayed the rankings as'nothing
more than good publicity.
"The primary purpose of the polls is to create interest in
college football," he said. "I think it's important in that
standpoint."
SCHEMBECHLER was particularly bewildered by his
team's jump in the CNN/USA Today rankng from 40th in
the pre-season, to fourth this week.
"That's a big climb, my gosh, from 40 to four in what,
four weeks?" noted Schembechler. "It seemed kind of
ridiculous.
"We would be a lot better football team if people would
not be nice to us," he joked. "That's really the kiss of

death because you start thinking you're good and the next
thing you know you get knocked on your can. So we would
appreciate it if everyone would continue to say that this
team is not very good, or say that even in spite of the three
wins, we're overrated."
WHILE Schembechler joked about the polls, he showed
a serious concern about something that could ultimately
hurt his team - the injuries to guards Mark Hammerstein
and Mike Husar. Husar went down Saturday with what
was feared to be a broken arm, but the injury turned out to
be not that serious.
"Husar's arm is not broken, but it's severly banged
up," said Schembechler. "That means we're not going to
lose him for any great time. The question is whether he'll
be able to play this week. We'll find that out by tomorrow,
whether he'll be good enough to go."
Hammerstein, who suffered a knee injury, may not be
so well off. The 6-4, 273-pound senior underwent an ar-
throscopic examination yesterday and will be out for at
least a couple of weeks.
DEPENDING upon who is available, Michigan may
have to juggle its interior line.
"If Husar can go we'll probably move (John) Vitale into
Hammerstein's spot," said Schembechler. "If Husar
can't go, that will probably necessitate (center Bob)
Tabachino moving back to guard and (Dave) Herrick and
(Andy) Borowski playing at center."
Also at the luncheon, Schembechler and his coaching
staff named tight end Eric Kattus the Offensive Champion
of the week, while fullback Gerald White was the Offensive
Hustler. Cornerback Garland Rivers was named Defen-
sive Champion, and inside linebacker Andy Moeller got
Defensive Hustler honors.

stein's status is still uncertain pending the outcome of Monday's arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.
