Schembechier savors

win, eyes


Thrilled with last Saturday's 26-
24 victory over Ohio State
Michigan coach Bo Schembechler
ate what he pleased and passed out
cigars at yesterday's weekly press
He then lighted his own stogie,
kicked back, and enjoyed himself.
The occasion? Michigan earned a
berth in the nation's most
prestigious Bowl game by beating
the Buckeyes. Schembechler cele -
brated this new berth, despite its
different spelling, by distributing
week off for Thanksgiving before
resuming preparation Sunday for a
game against Hawaii on Dec. 6.
As of yesterday, Schembechler
said, he did not know much about
the Rainbow Warriors.
"All I know about Hawaii is
they're a very good defensive team
and it's very hard to win out there,"
he said. "It's easier to beat them on
the mainland."
Hawaii, 6-4, but 5-1 at home,
beat Wisconsin, 20-17, earlier in
the season. Schembechler said he
has seen only the Wisconsin-
Hawaii film but added that
Michigan will scout this Saturday's
Hawaii-Wyoming game.
SCHEMBECHLER said he will
try to use the Hawaii game to
prepare for Michigan's Jan. 1
matchup with Arizona State, but
stressed the value of the game for

... earns Bo's praise

the players.
"It will be a great educational
experience for our guys," he said.
"It's a great opportunity to go and
see (Hawaii). It's gonna be football
and not messing around, but they'll
get a chance to see Hawaii."
Schembechler's win over Ohio
State broke Fielding "Hurry Up"
Yost's all-time record for career
victories at Michigan and extended
his career mark to 206-56-7.
Beating Ohio State is one of
Schembechler's most gratifying
"Anytime you're playing this
classic and you're getting blown
out 14-3," he said, "and you keep
pace and come back to win it, it has
to be one of the great wins over
Ohio State.

"The only way to go in the (Big
Ten) is to come down to Michigan-
Ohio State. Anytime you play this
game there are so many things
hanging in the balance. I just hope
it stays like that."

-Schembechler feels tailback
Jamie Morris, who ran for 210
yards on 29 carries against Ohio
State, can compete with his brother
Joe Morris of the New York
"There ain't nobody tougher than
Jamie," said Schembechler. "I
promise you that. Don't tell me
(Joe Morris) is tougher than Jamie;
he ain't no tougher. Jamie's a
tough little nut."
-Schembechler discounted the
hype surrounding quarterback Jim
Harbaugh's "guarantee" of victory
over Ohio State. "After you've just
lost to Minnesota, what the hell do
you care what he says. If your only
problem is worrying about what
your quarterback says, you don't
have anything to worry about."

cornerback Garland Rivers were

The Michigan wrestling team
trekked to Dayton, Ohio, this
weekend for the Ohio Open and
looked promising as it came away
with a strong second.
Michigan State won the meet
with 117.25 points. The
Wolverines finished with 82.5
points, while Ohio State took third
with 68.5.
Michigan coach Dale Bahr was
"pretty happy" with his team's
effort. Considering the squad's
youth, he said, its performance was
"not too bad." Eight out of ten of
Michigan's starters are freshmen or
LEADING THE way for the
Wolverines was 158-pounder Joe
Pantaleo, who downed Indiana's
Scott Duncan 4-2 in the final
match. Sophomore Doug Wyland
took second in his weight class,
losing 11-5 to Cleveland State's
Paul Kapper in the 118-pound final.
Others finishing in the top six
were Dave Dameron, sixth at 126
pounds, John Fisher, third at 134,
Jerry Norris, sixth at 134, and
James Dye, sixth at 167.

Dameron, who hurt his chest, and
chose to default his final match to
avoid further aggravation. The
injury is apparently a pulled
muscle, and Dameron should be
back by next weekend's meet at
eighth-ranked Clarion State.
Overall, however, Bahr was
pleased with the results of the meet.
He said the young Wolverines are
shaping up as he hoped. "Things
are starting to fall into place. The
people I assumed to come to the
forefront in their weight classes
And he expects continued
improvement. "By the end of the
season, we'll be better than
Michigan State," he said. "Our
young wrestlers are very talented,
but sometimes they'll get beaten by
an older wrestler. Time will tell."

will be out at least a week.
"We really depend on him to

than across the net. While the
Hurons have played like seasoned
veterens (8-8 in conference, 17-11
overall), they actually have only
one returning player from last
year's squad.
According to EMU head coach
Frank Fristensky, "We have a very
young team, in fact at one time we
had five freshmen starting."
Despite the experience, tonight's
game is expected to be a good one.
"This matchup may become a
tradition," said Fristensky. And
looking at the ages of the teams, he
may be right.
