If not sniffing Roses on the West
cdast, Michigan coach Bo
Schembechler might spend his New
Year's Day rgpping Orange Juice.
At least :hat's the hope of the
Flbrida Citrus Bowl. The Orlando,
Flbrida-based bowl has chased the
Wolverines since the start of the
seasonAt. next .week's Michigan-
Illinois game, Citrus Bowl
representatives will find out if their
numerous trips to Ann Arbor have
been worth their time.
"Michigan has a great tradition,"
said Citrus Bowl selection
committee member Mark Whitehead,
in Apn Arbor for last weekend's
game with Purdue. "Bo
Schembechler is an institution in
himself. They win and they bring a
lot of fans, they're perfect. A 9-2
Michigan would be about as good as
you can do in a Bowl matchup. But
I'm sure that if they don't go to the
Rose Bowl they'll have other
*ptions too, maybe the Cotton or
Michigan athletic director Jack
Weidenbach would not comment on
the Wolverines' interest in the bowl,
but said that "the only bowl we are
thinking about is the Rose Bowl."
Of all the other bowls, the Citrus
Bowl has been the most visible in
the Michigan Stadium press box

often sending out two selection
committee representatives, passing
out fliers plugging the strengths ofl
their game, and making a point of
congratulating Schembechler after a
win. Of course the more wins
Michigan gets, the closer they get to
Pasadena. Another Big Ten team
could fill in for Michigan if the
Wolverines can not take the Orlando
"We are very hopeful that we will
be in the running for the runner upt
in the Big Ten," Whitehead said.
"We've been (following Michigan)
every week. Michigan is right at the
top (of our list). At this point, our
goal is to get the top-ranked teams
available. I think the Big Ten
runner-up, whether it be Michigan,
Illinois, or Ohio State would be very
highly ranked in the polls and would
be a great draw for our bowl."
Whitehead is also wary that
another January 1st classic will steal
the Wolverines away. His heaviest
competition may come from
intrastate rivals, such as the Hall of
Fame Bowl in Tampa and Miami's
That's right, the Orange Bowl.
While the rest of America has Notre
Dame inked in as the opponent for
Big Eight champion Colorado, the
matchup can be erased faster than a
sweeping Hurricane. The Orange
Bowl selection committee will have
to make a risky decision before
knowing the outcome of the Notre
"I don't think we'll be able to
wait for that game," said Harper
Davison, a 'member of the Orange
Bowl selection committee. "We've
rolled the dice before, sometimes
we've been lucky, sometimes were
The Orange Bowl could also lose
the Irish to the Sugar Bowl, which
may have undefeated Alabama as a
representative of the Southeastern
"At this time of the year, we
really don't know what is going to
happen," Davison said. "We try to
look at a number of possibilities. If
the co-champions of the Big Ten
would be available, we would be
interested. We have to maintain our
contacts, even though I can't say
that (Michigan) is our number one
choice, and we are not their number
one choice. That could change,
depending on what happens."
While the Rose, Orange, Sugar
and Cotton Bowls all have
agreements with conferences to give
bids to a particular conference
champion, the Fiesta and Hall of
Fame Bowls do not, and for this
year, neither does the Citrus, which
normally gives an automatic bid to
the champion of the Atlantic Coast
"Our ACC deal was a four-year
deal," Whitehead said. "Every other
year is an option year for us, and
this is an option year. So we are not
committed or tied to ACC this year.
That doesn't mean we won't have
them, but we are back to trying to
get the two highest ranked teams
available. If the ACC happens to be
in there, that would be great, but we
are not obligated."
Redshirt frosh Desmond Howard caught this Michael Taylor pass, good
for eight yards and a touchdown in Saturday's game against Purdue.
Howard also rushed once for 13 yards.

had two punts blocked against Purdue which did
not please the coaching staff.
"The first one was a missed block. The second
one was misinformation. If there's a third one,
someone's going to get it," Schembechler said.
"But we'd better get that cleaned up."
The only two times Schembechler has not
beaten the Illini (7-1,5-0) were games played in
Champaign: a 3-3 tie in 1985 and a 16-6 loss in
1983. The 1983 game was the last time both
teams entered the matchup undefeated in
But Schembechler would rather play against
the top Big Ten teams than muddle through
supposed "easy" victories.
"I'd ten times rather have a game like this
than what we went through last week,"
Schembechler said. "This will be a fun week of
preparation, it will be like the Michigan State
"It's a lot more fun preparing for a game that
means so much. It doesn't get old... you get a
little more jacked up."
What should "jack up" Schembechler even
more is a chance to coach against John
Mackovic, who, like Schembechler, hails from
Barberton, Ohio. Mackovic was a graduate
assistant on Schembechler's first staff at Miami
"I've always followed his career, I'm very
fond of him," Schembechler said. "I'm happy for
him, if he finishes second."
What could prevent Illinois from finishing
second are a tough defense, which ranks among
the top in the country, and junior quarterback Jeff
George, who has completed over 60 percent of
