Taylor. named top QB

BY STEVE BLONDER
Anyone who follows Michigan
football kept asking this summer:
"Who will be the Michigan
quarterback, Michael Taylor or
Demetrius Brown?"
Michigan coach Bo Schembechler

wasn't worried about whether he had
too many quarterbacks, saying, "If
you have two guys, why are you
worried? The time to worry is if
we're going to play with a first-
semester player."
That probably will not happen
this season, but the Wolverines are
left with no experienced backup
quarterback to Taylor, now that
Brown is academically ineligible and
out for the season.

right guy to lead this ball club."
Taylor is particularly adept, at
running the option, and is known for
using his head on the field.
"Mike is they type of guy who
gets better because he knows the
game," said assistant coach Gary
Moeller. "He's one of the smartest

guys I've ever coached." ,
Taylor missed the first week of {
fall practice due to a pulled muscle in

BY PETER ZELLEN
Its order to cut down on the
number of alcohol-related incidents
during football games, the Michigan
athletic department established a new
carry-in policy for the football games
at Michigan Stadium.
Starting this season, no containers
will be allowed in the stadium.
Banned containers include coolers,
bottles, bags and backpacks. Officials
say that the reason for the overall ban
on containers is because it would be
impossible to check all of them for
alcoholic beverages.
There currently exists a Big Ten
conference policy for alcohol bans
only on conference games. Before
this fall, Michigan was the only Big
Ten school not to have such a
standard for non-conference games.
"We're the last one in the Big Ten
to enact this policy," said Spoorts
Information Director Bruce Madej.
"In fact, we're the last ones in the
state of Michigan."
Before the policy was introduced,
Michigan was the only Big Ten
school not to have a carry-in ban for
all football games. As for the state,

all four of the professional sports
teams, the Red Wings, Pistons,
ions, and Tigers have the same ban
on bringing containers into games.
"This policy is directed at the
alcohol problem at the University,
not that we have a big one," said
Will Perry, Assistant Director of
Athletics.
According to the Ann Arbor
Police Department, football
Saturdays average five to nine
reported disturbances at the stadium.
However, there are frequent instances
of alcohol-related behavior that are
not reported to security.
"It's not acceptable behavior but
out of 106,000 people it's not a bad
number," said Ann Arbor Police
Captain Robert Conn. "This policy
tells us the direction that the
University wants to take. That
alcohol in excess and the sport is a
concern."
A flyer outlining the carry-in
policy was enclosed with all season
tickets but still, not all fans know
about it. The athletic department will
continue to educate the fans on the
new rules.

Monday Night Football announ-
cer Dan Dierdorf played offensive p
tackle on Bo. Schembechler's first.
Wolverine team. The 1971 graduate
was an All-American during his
senior season, before moving on to
an illustrious career with the St
Louis Cardinals. Since retiring,
Dierdorf has worked as a television
analyst for both CBS and ABC.
Dierdorf met with Kickoff Editor
Steve Blonder on a Detroit visit
celebrating the 20th anniversary of
Monday Night Football.
Question: What do you think about a No. 1 vs. No.
2 season-opener?
Answer: It's not the way Bo wants to start the
season. I think all coaches would like to open with
Wichita State Teachers College... I wish we would have
played Notre Dame while I was in school. It's the kind
of ball game you get up for as a player.
Q: What type of memories do you have of Bo?
A: I played back at Michigan while . Bo was Bo,
before he became an elder statesman. When I played for
Bo he was just mean.... It came from when he was hired,
the Free Press and The News each ran big headlines
saying, "Bo Who?"
Bo and I had a problem. He thought I should be
smaller than I am. Suffice it to say we had a wide
difference of opinion. But now Bo's changed. He and I
agree on everything.
Q: What impresses you the most at a Michigan
game?
A: I don't think there is anything better than being at
a Michigan sporting event when everyone stands up to
sing Hail to the Victors.' It only gets better when you
get older.
Q: How often do you make it back to Ann Arbor for
football games?
A: Rarely. I hadn't seen a Michigan football game in
twelve to fifteen years until I went back a couple of
years ago for the Notre Dame game. Normally, I would

get some friends at
