Bo bashful about breaking Yost record
I , t Injuries may hurt run for Roses

By ADAM MARTIN
Bo Schembechler says he is
not a record-chaser. Proof came
when the 18-year Michigan head
coach captured his 200th career
coaching victory earlier in the
season.
The feat accomplished,
Schembechler claimed his 200
victories only indicated how long
he'd been coaching.
IF SCHEMBECHLER
wins at Purdue this Saturday he
will tie Fielding "Hurry Up"
Yost's record for all-time career
victories at Michigan. In 25 years
at the University, Yost posted a
remarkable 165-29-10 record.
Schembechler is currently at 164-
38-4.
But the current Wolverine field
general refuses to draw,
comparisons.
"By the time they talk about
me like they talk about Yost,
football will be something else,"
Schembechler said yesterday at his
weekly press luncheon. "Yost
must have been a helluva guy. He
was one of the pioneers of
coaching."
IN HUMBLING himself
Schembechler also tried to dispel
the myth that Yost was an
offensive football genius.
"Everybody thought he was a
great offensive coach, but that's
just not true," he said. "He was a
defense-oriented coach. Even
when he lost it was 3-0."
Yost's famous "point-a-
minute" teams played 56 games
without a loss between 1901 and
1905 and scored 2,821 points to
the opponents' 42.

DURING HIS reign Yost
worked for what seems a mere
pittance in modern terms.
"I have one of his contracts.
He got $1,000 for one year-plus,
and he was even permitted to eat
at training table," joked
Schembechler, who added that he
has no ambition to win 300
games - an eye-popping plateau
reached only by the late Paul
"Bear".Bryant of Alabama.
Blue Banter
-It's painful to look at the
Wolverines' injury list. Quick
tackle Mike Husar, who damaged
his knee at Indiana, will not play
against Purdue. Strong tackle
Jumbo Elliott played with a neck
problem in the Illinois game but
may not make the trip to Purdue.
Because Elliott's backup Brian
Reid is also sidelined, strong
guard Mark Hammerstein may
move to tackle to shore up that
position.
MEANWHILE, outside
linebacker Steve Thibert (deep
thigh bruise) and kicker Rick
Sutkiewicz (leg) probably will
miss the Purdue game.AddBilly
Harris (knee), Dave Folkertsma
(knee), Garland Rivers (shoulder),
and linebacker Dieter Heren
(ankle), all of whom are expected
to play in West Lafayette, and
Michigan's starting lineup may be
unfamiliar come Saturday.
-So Miami's Vinny Testaverde
has a lock on the Heisman
Trophy, huh? Well, after
completing 11 of 13 passes for
224 yards against Illinois,
quarterback Jim Harbaugh now

sports a higher efficiency rating
than Testaverde, who had occupied
the top spot before last Saturday.
Maybe, just maybe, the race isn't
over yet.
-Schembechler, like his basketball
counterpart, Wolverines coach Bill
Frieder, enjoys catching the press
off guard. When reminded of
Maryland coach Bobby Ross' mad
dash across the field after an
official, who Ross felt had
unfairly awarded a timeout to
North Carolina that allowed the
Tarheels to kick a game-winning
field goal, Schembechler quipped,
"I was disappointed in his speed."
All right, Bo.
-His two receptions for 79 yards
against the Illini made split end
Paul Jokisch the tenth receiver in
Michigan history to reach the
1000-yard reception mark.
