Hoosiers no surprise to Blue
By DARREN JASEY
Head coach Bo Schembechler may
be hurting, but his team has gotten
well in a hurry after a 3 7 - 10
thrashing of Iowa. However, the
Wolverines can't let up with next
Saturday's Indiana game on the
While Schembechler was in the
hospital being treated for kidney
stones, volunteer assistant coach
Alex Agase sat in at the weekly
media luncheon yesterday. Agase is
no stranger to such occasions. The
65-year-old was head coach at
Northwestern from 1964-72 and
Purdue from 1973-76.
Agase is in charge of the special
teams and the scout team for the
Indiana beat Minnesota, 18-17,
last Friday night and ripped Ohio
State the week before, 31-10. Both
of those games were on the road.
The Hoosiers head into their home-
coming game against Michigan with
a 5=1 record, 3-0 Big Ten.
"They certainly are one of the
contenders in the league," Agase
said. "To beat Ohio State at
Columbus for the first time since
Harry Truman was the president -
that is quite an accomplishment.
They have Michigan's respect."
The last time Indiana beat
Michigan, Lyndon Johnson was
president. And in 1983 - head
coach Bill Mallory's first year - the
Hoosiers went 0-11. But now
Mallory has his team perched atop
the conference standings along with
"From day one when Mallory got
there," Wolverine defensive tackle
Mark Messner said, "(Schembechler)
Michigan Sports Information
Director Bruce Madej, everything
went smoothly and Schembechler
was resting peacefully at home by
early yesterday afternoon.
After the Iowa game last
Saturday, Schembechler said that he
could have delayed the treatment
until after the regular season, but
he'd rather get the painful process
over with than live with the
discomfort for over a month.
kept emphasizing that Indiana is
going to be a great team and every
year they got better and better. This
year Indiana is a great team and Bo
just sits back and says, 'Told you
so, told you so, told you so..."'
Even though Indiana moved into
the top 20 last week, a 34-15 loss to
Kentucky in the second game of the
season has kept the Hoosiers clear of
powerhouse consideration. But Ag-
ase indicated that Indiana has the
ingredients necessary to be a great
"I think their offense is super,"
Agase said. "I like their quarterback
(Dave Schnell). He makes things
happen. Anthony Thompson is an
extremely good runner and one of
their fullbacks is averaging five
yards a try. Their flanker (Ernie)
Jones is tremendous. Those are the
things you fear."

OSU defense concerns Bruce
COLUMBUS (AP) - For a
change, the Ohio State offense
wasn't really so offensive, coach
Earle Bruce said yesterday. Now
Bruce says he will turn his attention
to tinkering with a listless defense.
Ohio State (4-1-1 overall, 2-1 Big
Ten) pulled out a 20-17 victory at
Purdue Saturday on Matt Frantz's
50-yard field goal with 3:16
Bruce, speaking at his weekly
media conference, didn't point his
finger at the offense for the close
call. The Buckeyes piled up a 17-0
first-half lead and then watched as the
defense surrendered 17 straight
"When you look at the statistics,
you see we've been outscored in the
second half something like 64-41. In
the fourth quarter, we're bring
outscored, 44-24," Bruce said.
"When that starts happening, I'm
"I THOUGHT th'e last two
weeks we got off to a pretty good
start offensively and defensively, but
we haven't finished up very strong. I
think we're better than that."
Bruce said the offense still wasn't
up to par, but he saw signs o f
"I thought Tom Tupa threw the
ball exceptionally well. A couple of
passes were dropped," said
Bruce. "He was better."
Bruce also praised the
contributions of wide receiver Gary
Clift, who filled in for the injured
Everett Ross with two catches for 58
yards; tailback-turned-flanker Vince
Workman, who caught four passes
for 88 yards in his first start away
from the backfield; defensive back
Dwight Smith, taking over for the
injured William White in the first
quarter; and backup tailback Carlos
Snow, who had 42 yards on seven
"As he gains confidence, he's
going to get better," Bruce said of
Snow, who scored 104 touchdowns
during his high school career. "His
acceleration is something. He
