about the quarterback position.
Either Michael Taylor, Demetrius
Brown, or Wilbur Odom will get the
chance to call the signals.
Some people have claimed that
Schembechler isn't announcing his
quarterback until game time to throw
off Notre Dame. Bo says no.
"This hasn't been done to trick
them at all," he insisted. "I can tell
them now that it isn't going to
change the attack. The only way the
attack would change is if I went in at
quarterback, then you wouldn't have

quite as much mobility."
But Schembechler hints that he
will go with experience. "The thing
you have got to take into consid-
eration in a big game on the road and
all that is that you don't want to put
a young guy in a bad position. We
are leaning towards a veteran but that
doesn't mean it is chiseled into
stone."
That would favor redshirt seniors
Taylor and Brown and insiders claim
that Taylor will get the nod. Accor-
ding to Schembechler, Taylor has
made tremendous strides this fall and
his arm strength has improved
considerably since last season.
A good passing attack will be
needed to help Michigan avenge last
season's 26-7 loss against Notre

Dame. Seven turnovers led to
Schembechler's first opening-game
loss in 19 years as Michigan's
coach. Notre Dame head coach Lou
Holtz realizes that Michigan won't
be as generous this time around
"We can't count on the turnovers
by Michigan this year," Holtz said.
"The University of Michigan has a
great football team. I'm not telling
you anything that everybody in the
country didn't already know. Mich-
igan has few question marks, while
we have a lot."
Spoken like a true coach. Notre
Dame does have some question
marks, but not as many as Holtz
would lead one to believe.
One problem area is along the
offensive line where only junior Tim

Grunhard has any experience. On
that same line is Notre Dame's
senior tackle Andy Heck, a converted
tight end, who has said that the
criticism is unjustified.
"I really got tired of people
saying all summer that our offensive
line was going to be such a
problem," said Heck, one of the
Irish's tri-captains. "Coach (Joe)
Moore always tells us that the
coaches can't win games for us, but
that they can teach us to be winners.
He says the winners in life have the
best of everything- the best jobs,
the best salaries, the best houses, the
best looking girls. I just want
people to know that all of us on the
offensive line have great-looking
girlfriends."
The quarterbacking position has
also been looked at critically. Junior
Tony Rice has yet to prove that he
can throw the ball as efficiently as
he can run with it. His seven
rushing scores last season marked
the most since Terry Hanratty in
1967.
But he'll have to be able to get
the ball to flanker Ricky Watters,
Notre Dame's most explosive off-
ensive threat. Watters will be taking
the place of Heisman Trophy winner

Tim Brown, while also returning
punts and kicks. Some, including
Schembechler, who saw Watters run
for an 18-yard touchdown against the
Wolverines last season, claim Wat-
ters is even more dangerous than

Brown.
One question that Holtz doesn't
have to answer concerns the
linebackers. The trio of Ned Bolcat,
Michael Stonebreaker, and Wes
Pritchett should make it tough for
Michigan to move the ball.

Boles ineligible?

BY STEVE BLONDER
The athletic eligibilty of startings
halfback Tony Boles remains in
doubt, today, as questions persistc
regarding an incomplete he received
during the summer semester.
Boles failed to complete a paper
in an Afro-American studies class,
according to Percy Baits, who chairs
the academic performance comm-
ittee. He said a final decision would
be made this morning, and that
Boles' importance to the team would
not be a factor in the decision.
Boles needs to pass the class in
order to petition the committee to
restore his eligibility, as his grade
point average is below Michigan's
2.0 requirement. The committee may
restore an athlete's eligibility if
he/she has achieved a g.p.a. over the
1.8 required for eligibilty by the Big
10.
Boles, who won the starting job

in the spring, chose not to answe
questions, and football coach Ba
Schembechler was unavailable fo
comment.
