Opponents

(Continuedfrom Page 14) -
Cris Carter, only a junior, also set
school records by catching 58
passes in '85.
Protecting Karsatos will be
senior center Bob Maggs (6-5, 287
pounds), a pre-season All-
American at center. Maggs will
have to lead a large but very
inexperienced line to protect the
immobile Karsatos.
THE MOST unusual aspect of
this year's Buckeye squad is the
lack of big-name running back.
John Wooldridge filled in capably
at tailback for the injured at Keith
Byars, rushing for 820 yards. He
will have to carry the load in the
backfield once again.
The Buckeye defense is among
the finest in the conference and
will carry the team. The
linebacking is especially strong,
featuring two All-American
candidates in Eric Kumerow (6-6,
242 pounds) and Chirs Spielman (6-
2,227 pounds). - BOROWSKY

Coaches.
(Continued from Page 12)
bers. Coaches are expected to spend
time with the media, make recruiting
trips, organize football camps for
teenagers, show up in commercials,
and even answer fan mail. The list
can go forever.
"The longer you are in (coaching),
there are greater and greater deman-
ds on your time," Schembechler said.
"If you don't learn to say no, you are
involved in an awful lot of things and,
that takes you away from your
primary.job - dealing with the
players. That's the only thing you
have to be concerned with."
SCHEMBECHLER cited recruiting
as one of the most time consuming ac-
tivities for a head coach and he ad-
vocates policies that keep the head
coach at home while assistants do the
travelling. Working with players
already on the team, he believes, is
more important than taking time to
recruit potential players.
Saving time for players, though,
doesn't guarantee job security. It may
even endanger it. In Dennison's case,
he spent a lot of time on his kids and
was a consistent winner, but was
still fired. Reed helped his players
become better students, but didn't
win, so he caught flack from the ad-
ministration.
Still, the players keep coaches in
love with their jobs.
"IT A TOUGH profession, but it's a
good one," Dennison said. "I would
give my right arm to be back in it.
There's nothing wrong with the
profession as long as you're still
working with the kids."

Reed chose to stay with coaching
even though he had an offer nearing
six figures to work in a Raleigh-area
private business. He took the $45,000
per year job at Michigan instead.
INDEED, ALL coaches get tied up
in knots at times. In fact, coaches
share a sense of comraderie off the
field despite their on-field adversarial
relationships. Many worked or played
together at some point in their
careers, as in the-case of Schem-
bechler's students. They often praise
and support each other.
Sportswriters working on preview
stories rarely attend a press con-
ference in which one coach will not
complement the other. It is an accep-
ted conspiracy for coaches to give
each other good publicity. On two oc-
casions in 1985, Schembechler went on
the record in support of fellow
coaches in danger of being axed.
Ironically, the two coaches were
Faust and Dennison. He defended
Faust after Michigan beat Notre
Dame in the season opener and he
supported Dennison after Faust was
named the new Akron coach.
For Dennison, Reed and Schem-
bechler, head football coaching
remains a part of their future. Den-
nison admitted he hopes to have a new
job someplace in 1987 while Reed will
stay at Michigan a few years until
another good position opens up. After
that, he plans on doing something
else. Schembechler makes no hints
about retiring despite a bad heart.
All things considered, they like
what they are doing.
"I enjoy it," Reed sail. "So we'll
give it another try."

Outlook
(Continued from Page 3)
that our neighbors due north and
south have similar situations.
Michigan State and Ohio State, yes,
the two schools that you are told to
hate from your first day at
freshman orientation, will provide
the Wolverines with their toughest
competition in the Big Ten.
Last season was one of the most
balanced in Big Ten history. With
so many outstanding passers in the
conference, the competition was
stiffer than at sorority rush. This
year, the emphasis is on the run
and defense. Imitation may be
flattery, but Schembechler isn't
taking any bows.
"It will be more difficult to win
in the Big Ten this year than it was
a year ago with (the loss of) all the
great quarterbacks and great
offensive teams," Schembechler
said.
"When...the other teams in the
league areemphasizing defense
the way they're doing it, I'm more
concerned about our chances of
winning. The most difficult thing
is to play good defensive teams."
The team with the toughest
defense and best running attack
thus gets the charter flight to
California. Don't look for any
surprises. The team will be
Michigan.

Harbaugh
(Continued from Page 6)
something that's been around our
household. He (Jack) has always
taken time out to talk to me about
the questions I've had. I feel very
fortunate to have that kind of an
advantage over some of the other
players."
Q. Do you think there's going to
be a revenge factor when Iowa
visits here this season?
A. "We had some real great
moments last year and certainly
the lowest moment was when Rob
Houghtlin kicked that field goal. It
was like someone reached in and
pulled out my insides. It was
definitely a game that cost us the
Rose Bowl and the national
championship, so we'll be looking
for that game."
Q. Did you always want to go to
Michigan?
A. "Yeah, definitely."
Q. Since when can you
remember?
A. "Since I was a little kid, wher
I got nervous before the
game....seeing the crowds. I went to
Michigan basically because of
Coach Schembechler. He's the
greatest coach in America today.
He's a super guy and I respect him
because he's honest."
