Michigan coach Bo Schem-
bechler admitted to being a bit too
conservative against Indiana and
vowed at his weekly luncheon
yesterday to have a more balanced
attack against Northwestern.
"I don't want to throw the ball
just 16 times," said Schembechler
in reference to Saturday's game. "I
want more balance than that. I was
too one dimensional. If we go to
Northwestern and have success
running, I'm not going to stay that
Last year against Northwestern,
quarterback Michael Taylor threw
only five passes all afternoon,
completing one for three yards. It's
safe to say that Schembechler will
put the ball up more than that.
BUT DON'T expect Schem-
bechler to go into a pro style
passing attack. Schembechler feels
that it is only productive to pass
about 25 times a game. Anything
more is counterproductive.
"Look at the Miami Dolphins,"
Schembechler said. "They throw for
500,000 yards but they also throw
five interceptions. And those
interceptions knock off 400 yards."
Doesn't that still leave 496,000
yards? Well, anyway, what's the
difference. The point is well taken.
Schembechler, however, still
feels the key to winning is
stopping the run defensively.
"What you don't want to let
them do is run," Schembechler said.
"Everybody was worried about
Indiana hitting passes, but you
must stop the run.
"When you play Indiana, you
must stop the run. When you play
Northwestern, you must stop the
run. When you play Minnesota,
you must stop the run. I don't want
to sound redundant, but I don't want
them running on me."
NO RUNNER has broken the
century mark against the
Wolverines this season and that is
part of the reason that Michigan
stands at the top of the standings in
the Big Ten.
To stay at the top, Michigan
will have to do more than beat
Northwestern. "It's important for us
to win the game, but it's also
important that we improve,"
Schembechier said. "We will have
to improve at the fundamental
things: blocking and tackling -
the silly stuff that helps you win
"To slop through the game and
not improve will damage our
opportunity to win the title and not
be a good football team,"
-Schembechler is worried about
the defensive secondary. Vada
Murray has a strained knee and is
probable, and David Key had, "his
bell rung". But the most serious
injury sustained was to David
Arnold who pulled a hamstring.
Arnold should be out a couple of
weeks. Todd Plate or Eric Bush is
expected to fill in at cornerback.

Defensive Tackle Mark Messner pressures Indiana quarterback Dave Schnell in the Woverines'
31-6 victory against the Hoosiers last weekend. Messner will help the Michigan defense
toughen up against the run when the Wolverines play Northwestern on Saturday.
*Schembechler's feelings on the
Big Ten race: "I don't know
whether we played the best team in
the conference yet, but we played
three of the better teams and escaped
without a loss. But I can't say we
are in a bad position."
-Tony Boles needs 81 yards to
become only the 16th player in
Wolverine history to rush for 1,000
yards in a season.
-Northwestern last defeated
Michigan in 1965.
-Greg McMurtry's career passing
efficiency now stands at 816.4
according to the NCAA formula.
Among qualified passers, Jim
Harbaugh has the highest career
efficiency in Wolverine history
-Indiana's running back Anthony
Thompson became the third player
to catch nine passes in a game
against Michigan this season.
Previously, Cleveland Gary of
Miami and Mary Cook of Iowa had
also accumulated nine pass catches.
The last Wolverine to snare nine
catches in a game was Anthony
Carter versus Minnesota in 1980.
Soccer club finishes
year on winning note
FROM STAFF REPORTS
The Michigan men's soccer club wrapped up the 1988 season on
Sunday with a 1-0 victory over the Warriors of Indiana Institute of
Technology in Fort Wayne.
The Wolverines came out strong, pressuring the Warriors' defense
and pounding 14 shots on I.I.T.'s goal. Unfortunately, Michigan
couldn't score. At the half, the game was tied, 0-0.
Several minutes into thesecond half, the Wolverines gained mo-
mentum and began to pressure I.I.T.'s goal as senior Kurt Rindfusz
scored what proved to be the game winner on an assist from midfielders
Chris Eadie and John Metsker.
Michigan's offense kept the pressure on the Warriors until late in
the game when I.I.T. mounted an offensive attack on the Wolverine net.
Michigan's defense, led by senior fullbacks Mark Kring and Steve
Burns, was equal to the task, stopping two free kicks near their own goal
and pushing back the Warriors' attack. Wolverine goaltenders Marc
Kuiper and Ray Kochey shared the shutout.
Sunday's win brings Michigan's season record to 9-5-4. Because of
the team's club status, they are ineligible for post-season play. The team
is off until early January when practice for the indoor season begins.
SPIKERS LOSE TWO AT HOME:

in sending Michigan and its family

THE ILLINI defeated the

two-time All-American Mary
Eggers, while Michigan was-
plagued by nine service errors and a
low (.108) hitting efficiency.

the Wolverines and their families
went out to dinner to celebrate their
victory to come against Purdue on
