Rocky road ends for
Schembechler; Bo
goes to work today

"I think we are going to have to
accept the fact that this is a run-of-
the-mill Michigan team. When we
go into games like this, when we
ought to win, playing during a
season when I believe it would be
easiest to win the conference, we've
played like a second-division ball
club. Maybe we just have to accept
the fact that we're just not very
-Michigan head coach
Bo Schembechler
The reality that 1987 is a wasted
season for Michigan football is
starting to set in.
The Wolverines are now 2-2 in
the Big Ten (4-3 overall) after losing
14-10 to Indiana last Saturday. The
only other time that Bo
Schembechler has started 4-3 at
Michigan was in 1984.
In Saturday's 14-10 Indiana
victory, the Wolverines came up flat
in the second half after controlling
the first two quarters.
"I got to give (Indiana) all the
credit in the world," said Michigan
assistant head coach and offensive
coordinator Gary Moeller at
yesterday's press luncheon, "but I'm
still saying, 'My God, we should
have won that game."'
ACTUALLY, the Wolverines
could say that about all their losses.
Seven turnover performances against
Notre Dame and Michigan State
broke the Wolverines' backs in
games that were statistically close.
Michigan wide receiver John
Kolesar said, "It's really hard to
explain. You can say a lot of should
have, could have, and w o u l d
The problem, said Kolesar, is that
the Wolverines just aren't playing
good sound football, typical of a
Schembechler-coached team.
"We didn't do everything right
and made mistakes fundamentally,"
Kolesar said. "We didn't play
Michigan football and we didn't win.

If we play Michigan football we'll
"I think it's going to be back to
the basics. Tough, physical, knock
down, drag out football."
the coaches and players is that the
Wolverines are talent laden team that
has not clicked on all cylinders.
"All you need to look at are the
three games that we've lost,"
Schembechler said. "You can see
pretty quickly why this team has not
been successful. It's discouraging
because you'd think we would be a
better ball club than what we are.
"You would think that we'd have
a chance to win the championship.
But right now, in my judgment,
we're out of the race."
Moeller pointed out that the
Wolverines outgained, had more first
downs than, and held the ball longer
than Indiana. But Michigan's
inability to make the big play and an
especially poor special teams'
performance led to the fall.
IN ADDITION to a Monte
Robbins punt being blocked and
recovered on the Michigan 11-yard
line, the Wolverines other two punts
travelled only 36 and 38 yards and
were returned for an average of 18.5
yards. Robbins was averaging 44
yards per kick before the contest.
The Hoosiers averaged 53.3 yards
per punt and held Michigan to 14
yards per return. On kickoff returns
the Hoosiers averaged 20 yards
against Michigan's 13.7.
"We lost a lot of valuable,
valuable yards on the kicking game,"
Moeller said. "It makes a hell of a
lot of difference in a game like that,
where both teams are running ball
control because of the bad weather."
Said Schembechler: "Here's the
crowning blow - one of our
strengths has been our kicking
game, and in this game, we couldn't
punt, we had a punt blocked, our
return game wasn't good...our
kicking game was miserable."

While Michigan continues to get
stoned by the opposition, head coach
Bo Schembechler's kidney stone
problem may finally be cleared.
Indications are that Schem-
bechler's second round of lithotripter
treatment yesterday at the University
of Michigan hospital was a success,
and the 19th-year head coach will
return to work today.
"The reports in here are that
everything went well," said assistant
head coach Gary Moeller.
"Apparently (the treatment) broke
everything up. It went better than
last week."
Last Monday Schembechler
underwent the same treatment at the
University hospital and was able to
return to work and coach the Indiana
