Michigan middle guard Billy
Harris and Ohio State head coach
Earle Bruce will be ending their
careers for their respective teams this
pSaturday in Michigan Stadium when
Michigan and Ohio State renew their
classic rivalry.
And though the circumstances
surrounding their diepartures are
different (Harris is a fifth-year senior,
Bruce is a lame-duck coach after
being fired Monday), Harris thinks
the reason Bruce will be coaching in
his last game as a Buckeye may be
the same reason that Harris will be
*playing in his last game as a
Wolverine.
"I was overtaken by Michigan
(during the recruiting trip)," said
Harris hours before Bruce was
dismissed from his post. "The
tradition, Coach Scheinbechler, the
opportunity to play for a legend.
Maybe if Woody Hayes would have
been there, it would have been a
harder choice, but Earle Bruce and
*Bo? Bo is a legend. I wanted to play
?for a legend."

obvious: Bruce is, was, and probably

won't ever be a legend. "But he's a
come-on coach," Harris said. "Earle's
coiming on." Just where Earle's
coming is still uncertain - almost
as uncertain as Harris' future as at
Wolverine at the start of practice this
year.
Harris was almost as unwanted at
Michigan as Bruce is at Ohio State.
A disagreement with Schecmbechler
over personal matters led to a one-
on-one meeting between player and
coach last summer. Harris refuses to
disclose the nature of the problem,
but Schembechler purposely left
Harris out of the Michigan media
guide, running rumors rampant that
Harris had been dismissed from the
team.
The players deny the tough, stern,
and dictator-like image of the
legendary head coach that the public
perceives. But that image became
reality for the native of Xenia, Ohio.

To this day. Harris believes he
was right and his coach was wrong.
He doesn't regret what he d id(,
whatever he did, and said he would
go into Schembechler's office today
and say the same things he said that
summer sday.
DOES HARRIS feel ani-
mosity toward his coach? Hatred?
Dislike? Just a little? Does he regret
his decision to attend Michigan
rather than Ohio State, his state
school - a decision which he still
gets "ragged abo~ut?"
"You see Bo and you know he's
the man," Harris said, obviously
discounting any negative feelings
towards the 19-year head coach.
"Anytime, anywhere, he's the man
and that's the way he carries himself
and that's just impressive. He is in
control wherever he goes and it
makes you feel good to have a coach
like that."
As for his decision, Harris
squelches all theories that the
negatives have outweighed the,
positives in coming to Michigan.
"It's been a great five years here,"
said the aspiring sports broadcaster.
"It's something I'll remember for the
rest of my life. It's been wonderful
and I loved it and I wish I could do it
all over again."
BUT HARRIS can't do it all
over again, andl Saturday's game will
be his last in Michigan Stadium.
Whereas Bruce will leave the field
involuntarily, Harris realizes it is

time to m1ove on.
"I'm sure: when I walk off that
field, they'll be tears in my eyes,", he
said. "'I won't think about the bad
moments, the arguments, and the
disagreements. I'll think about all
the wonderful times I've had here and
all the great experiences I've had in
that stadium.

"The great victories, the last-
second1 field goals, the goal -Iine
slops, the sacks, the tackles behind
the line of scrimmage - all those
great memories will pass through
my mind when I walk off that field.
It will be a touching moment.~
And a happy one. At least for one
of Saturday's participants.
