M' COACH ANSWERS FALLS, TELANDER
Tuesday, October 3, 1989
Bo speaks out on media
by Adam Benson
Daily Football Writer
"Rick Telander is a loser, he's
been a loser all his life. You
wouldn't want him on your team,
you wouldn't want him in your
organization, you wouldn't want
him writing for your magazine. He's
a negative guy. I don't give a damn
about what he says."
Does this quote make you think
Bo Schembechler is just a little
angry at the Sports Illustrated writer,
who is now putting out a book on
,ollege football called "The Hundred
It may be more appropriate to say
that Bo just doesn't like the guy. Bo
didn't even show respect for
Telander's ability as football player.
"I don't know whether he was a
player or not," Schembechler said
about the former Northwestern
Wildcat, who played wide receiver
for Alex Agase from 1968 to 1970.
"I don't remember devising a tactic
to go away from him."
The coach's disdain couldn't have
been lightened by the comments
from "Something Must Be Done,"
the excerpt from Telander's new
book that ran in last week's SI.
In that article, Telander did make
mention of the Wolverines, and his
comments were far from positive.
Telander wrote: "God, it's so sad,
you almost hesitate to ask why
Michigan's athletic department can't
squeak by on its $20 million annual
budget (one of the largest in the
nation), or why coaches and athletic
directors can't take a teensy-weensy
And when Telander's name came
up at Bo's luncheon for the press
yesterday, Schembechler let his
Telander wasn't the only scribe to
draw Bo's wrath. Schembechler
commented on the Detroit News
column last week calling for his
resignation as athletic director,
written by columnist Joe Falls.
"He thinks he pisses me off,"
Schembechler said of Falls. "He
doesn't. If there's one thing I don't
give a shit about, its Joe Falls."
The rips on Falls and Telander
interrupted a fairly mellow meal. Bo
offered kudos for the performances
against Maryland by wide receiver
Greg McMurtry and linebacker
Bobby Abrams, the offensive and
defensive champions of the week.
The coach did announce two
changes on the defense, Mike Teeter
has taken the starting job at middle
guard away from T.J. Osman and
Todd Plate has moved in at a
cornerback spot, knocking out Lance
The coach also expects Dean
Dingman to comeback into the
lineup against Wisconsin. Dingman
did play against Maryland, getting
action for the first time since the
Notre Dame game. .
IM refs receive a

Officiating is a tough job, but somebody has to
O fficials need to make decisions on the spot and
stick by them in the face of adversity. Besides that
difficulty, they must have enough confidence to
believe they made the right call despite seemingly
And verbal abuse, such as name calling,
screaming and cursing, is commonplace during
intramural events at Michigan.
However, the creation of new sportsmanship
rules this year for IM sports may make the job of
officiating a little easier.
The ratings are based on the following criteria:
"A" - Excellent conduct and sportsmanship is
displayed by the team. Players fully cooperate and
the team captain is in full control of his or her
"B" - Good conduct and sportsmanship is
generally displayed although team members verbally
complain about decisions and show minor
dissension. Any team with one yellow card, which
is given by an official as a result of unsportsmanlike
conduct, automatically receives a "B" rating at best.
"C" - The team displays average
sportsmanship and conduct and shows verbal dissent
which may or may not warrant a yellow card. The
captain exhibits little or no control. Any team
receiving multiple yellow cards can get no higher
than a "C."
""- Below average conduct and
sportsmanship are displayed. There are constant
comments from the field and/or sidelines. The
captain exhibits no control. Any team receiving a
red card will get no higher than a "D."
"E" - The team displays poor sportsmanship,
conduct and is completely uncooperative. The
captain has no control.
Although the issuing of yellow and red cards for
unsportsmanlike conduct is up to the judgement of
the referee, there is a list of infractions for each IM
sport which automatically warrant penalty cards.
"The system is really working because teams are
taking into consideration the rankings," IM soccer
official Susie Kridler said. "The tournament is really
important to them."
In order for a team to compete in the playoffs, it
must maintain a "B" average during the regular

Fighting Irish are not a perfect football team, they remained the near-
unanimous choice at the top of the rankings Monday. The Irish, who
supplanted Michigan as the No. 1 team after beating the Wolverines Sept.
16 and have remained there since, received 57 first-place votes from a
nationwide panel of 60 sports writers and broadcasters. The Irish, who
improved to 4-0 Saturday with a 40-7 victory over Purdue, got 1,497 of a
possible 1,500 points in voting which awards the top team 25 points down
to one point for a 25th-place vote.

remained second in the poll with 1,426 points, beat Michigan State, 26-
