Big Ten's best pair.
Says Schembechler; "My deep
feeling is that we should at least
match the production of the
offensive team a year ago in terms of
yardage, scoring, possession time,
and perhaps play better in some of
the games that we didn't play well
in, such as Minnesota and Arizona
The defensive front three is led by
tackle Mark Messner and middle
guard Billy Harris. Senior linebacker
Andree McIntyre takes over for Andy
Moeller as the defensive signal
caller, and Erik Campbell is the lone
returning starter in the secondary.
"The defense will be the key to
Michigan's success," says the
Michigan mentor, "because last year
our defense was below par and it cost
us in a couple of those close games.
Particularly in the secondary where
we lost some fine players."
FROM THIS mixture of

players Schembechler hopes to
receive the senior leadership
necessary to get his troops in the
right frame of mind.
"The bottom line is that the
attitude is still going to be the most
determining factor in whether you
win or not," Schembechler says.
"And attitude is demonstrated mostly
by senior players. Whether the
leadership (we have) is going to be
good enough to give us that great
attitude has to be proved, and if it
turns out that we're going to get that
kind of leadership, then we should be
in the race with a chance to win."

The final score 'was 22-15.
Michigan had lost its seventh Rose
Bowl in eight trips with head coach
Glenn E. Schembechler at the helm.
Now it is late August.
Schembechler is heading into his
19th year at Michigan. The Rose
Bowl failure appears completely
forgotten. The coach is assembled
before the press. He has that
preseason gleam in his eyes. His
Wolverines have recorded a two-year
record of 21-3-1, including a Fiesta
Bowl victory in 1986. His team is
the defending Big Ten champion.
The man they call "Bo" is once
again at the top of the heap.

THIS YEAR Michigan is on
just about everybody's top ten list.
But Schembechler knows that
preseason polls are more an
indication of a successful past than
of a successful future. He says his
team won't finish 6-6 but hints that
those rankings might be a little
"I'm not sure about this team,"
Schembechler says. "We've got
enough talent to win the (Big Ten
title), but we're young, particularly
in the backfields - the secondary

problem. And we're not deep at a lot

"We want a victory out there

Billy Harris says. "We want to be

Says junior quarterback
Demetrius Brown; "We want to go

and without them."
ROSE BOWL losses are old
hat to Schembechler. He is used to
them. His players aren't. In 1987 a
Rose Bowl loss is the rallying point
for the team.
A return trip to Pasadena is not
out of the question for Michigan.

Before criticizing Bo's offense, watch some
Spartan games. Last year, Michigan State
coach George Perles decided to run the ball
down the Wolverines' throats despite the
absence of star tailback Lorenzo White.
Anyone with an IQ above wide receiver Andre
Rison's uniform number (1) would have
thrown the ball on every opportunity.
Perles tries the same game plan this year
and again it fails. Michigan defensive end
Dave Folkertsma trips over a teammate and
falls on White, breaking the tailback's leg.
