Seven interceptions
lead to downfall

Special to the Daily
spring practice, Michigan football
head coach Bo Schembechler has
worried about his defense, while
saying his offense would be just
fine. For the second time in five
weeks, those words came back to
haunt Schembechler and the
Saturday, they lost to Michigan
State, 17-11, in large part due to
offensive mistakes.
The Spartans intercepted

Brown seven times - four by safety
John Miller - and Heisman
candidate Lorenzo White ran for 185
yards and two touchdowns en route
to Michigan State's first home
victory over the Wolverines since
"Yes, it feels good to beat the
University of Michigan and still I
have compassion for Bo," said
Michigan State head coach George
Perles. "Johnny Miller's four
interceptions are unheard of. Seven
interceptions are more than you ever
Despite the miscues on offense,
the Wolverines were still in the
game entering the fourth quarter. An
11-point deficit quickly becanle three
when Brown found halfback Jamie
Morris curling across the middle for
an 18-yard touchdown. A successful
two-point conversion (Brown to
John Kolesar) closed the gap to 14-
11 with 12 minutes to play.

overall, 2-0 in the conference) then
abandoned the conservative shell it
had gone into at the beginning of the
second half and marched 47 yards on
ten plays. Kicker John Langeloh
booted a 42-yard field goal that
barely made it over the upright.
Michigan (3-2, 1-1) was still in a
position to go ahead with a
touchdown and extra point. This
time, however, it was not to be.
Michigan's drive, which started on
its own 24 and included two third-
down conversions to keep the drive
alive, ended the same way six other
Michigan drives did - with an
interception: With just over three
minutes left, Michigan State's
Harlon Barnett intercepted a ball
thrown very short of receiver Greg
McMurtry at the Spartan 10-yard
After Barnett scampered 36 yards
upfield, it was time for Michigan
State and its fans to start celebrating.
This one was over.
Just like in the Notre Dame
game, when Michigan self-destructed
with seven turnovers in losing, 26-
7, the interceptions Saturday were
heart-breaking to the Wolverines and
inexcusable to Schembechler.
"Our offense is just sporadic and
disappointing to me - particularly
with the turnovers," said
Schembechler. "I just can't fathom
that many turnovers.
"Actually, I don't know how it
happened, turning the ball over as
frequently as we did. It's amazing

Washington soothsayers trying to figure out
who President Reagan will nominate next and
if the nominee will face the same scrutiny that
Bork encountered.

alternative nominees, he is perhaps the only

writer before becoming a judge, Bork appealed
to conservatives because of his well-
documented views. It was these same views
which caused a clash between the judge and
the Senate Judiciary Committee. A nominee
