Thompson's big game unimpressive to Schembechler

Heisman
by Richard Eisen

hoopla eats at Bo

D ily FOOtbanI writerV
If Michigan coach Bo
chembechler had a Heisman Trophy
in his hand, he would've clocked
some reporters with it at his weekly
luncheon. To hell with the award,
let's see some blood.
Recently, Michigan tailback
Tony Boles has demonically run
through defenses as if they were
made of paper maichd. So, once
again, Schembechler must fend off
eporters who wonder why the most
successful coach in Michigan history
has never fielded a Heisman Trophy
winner.
At yesterday's luncheon,
Schembechler's tossed garden salad
was interrupted by one reporter who
asked him why Schembechler
doesn't hype his players for the
hugely hyped-up award?
"That's bull. That's bull. You're
the guys that choose (the .Heisman
winner), so why the hell are you
asking me?" Schembechler barked
with a wee bit of Thousand Island
dressing dripping from the corner of
his mouth. "(Boles) is good, you're
damn right he's good. He's got 6.3
yards per carry and there's no..." .
* He cut himself off. His face was
red. It seemed as if the reporters were
Wvearing striped shirts. Now, Bo was
cdoking with gas and he seemed to
pat finishing his salad completely
out of his mind.
s "I'm not as enamored with (the
Heisman) as much as you are,"

Schembechler said. Later in the
meal, he added that he felt the
Heisman Trophy voting process was
"way out of whack."
"It's not that you know the most,
but you talk and write the most.
You people control everything;
you're listened to more than anybody
else," Schembechler said.
The main crux of the Heisman
Trophy talk centered around Boles
and Indiana running back Anthony
Thompson, who has been paraded by
the media as the leading Heisman
candidate.
"You've got a guy (Thompson)
who runs the ball 52 times against a
team that hasn't won many games
(Wisconsin)," Schembechler said
turning beet red for the second time
in his meal. "I want 100 yards in the
goddam playoff game. I want 100
yards when the chips are down.
Where was he in the two losses?"
Schembechler was obviously
referring to Thompson's ability to
disappear in the big games. Boles,
however, seems to rise to the
occasion in the money games,
gathering, for instance, 115 yards on
only nine carries against the Illini
last Saturday.
"Tony has been exceptional
because he's given us a big play in
every game since the UCLA game.
Every game," Schembechler said.
"When they ask me for my vote for
the best player in the country, I'll
probably vote different than you
guys.-

0 The new kid for the Michigan volleyball team
istcausing quite an interesting dilemma.
First-year_.setter Tarnisha Thompson saw
plenty of action against Northwestern Friday
fight, totalling 27 assists on the game. The
dition of Thompson into the line-up in place of
e veteran Autumn Collins added a new twist to
the Michigan scheme.
With the taller, 5'9" Thompson in the middle,
the Michigan blocking proved more effective, a
facet that evaded the Wolverines on Saturday
against Wisconsin.
Yet, with the advent of Thompson as the
setter, Michigan loses a step in experience, as the
5'6" Collins has more control over her passes.
"Tarnisha gives a different look in the front
row for the (opposing) hitters to look at,"
Michigan head coach Joyce Davis said. "It gives
them something to think about. Most hitters, if
they're looking across the net at somebody that's
5'6", will feel confident.
"Autumn is not a poor blocker by any means,
but it gives the hitters some confidence that we'd
like to not give them. Just giving the hitters
something else to think about sometimes affects

their momentum and their rhythm."
Northwestern coach Jerry Angle agreed,
pointing out that the Wildcats could not key on
Thompson's size.
"I think Thompson gave the team a little
different tempo than when Autumn's in there,"
Angle said. "One big thing is when Autumn's in
there, Michigan's got one weakness in the block
and I think Thompson puts up at least a stable
block. She's pretty young right now, she still
doesn't know what she's doing with her body and
everything else, but she's a very athletic player.
"I think that gives them a little different
dimension, because now we don't key on setting
left side and trying to abuse Autumn. We go
looking for the right options at that point rather
than just going after one certain player. Overall,
it gives them a little more flexibility."
The statistics don't lie. With Thompson on
Friday, the Wolverines compiled eight solo
blocks and 16 block assists. Saturday night, the
Collins-led squad tallied just one solo and seven
block assists.
However, Collins' passing spurred Michigan
to a .186 attack percentage, while Thompson's
game only provided a .078 mark.
It's an interesting dilemma for Davis, who

solves the problem quite simply.
"Autumn is a little bit better transitionally for
us, but Tarnisha's just a little bit stronger
blocking for us," Davis said. "Based on all the
factors, it can be 50-50. They're pretty much
interchangeable, but I try and see what's going
on in the match to determine which one is going
to be better for us at that given time."
The major advantage to having Collins at
setter is her experience. But spotted playing time
for Thompson - like her cameo on Friday -
should slowly give her the experience she needs
to gain the crispness that her passing game lacks.
Notebook
FOR THE RECORDS: With Saturday night
being Michigan's final home appearance, the
Wolverine fans said goodbye to three seniors who
each set new standards for the Michigan record
books.
Karen Marshall etched her name in the book
by tallying 19 kills on the weekend giving her
1,046 for her career, breaking the record set by
Marie Ann Davidson in 1988.
Middle hitters Kim Clover and Carla Hunter
currently hold Michigan records of their own as
well. Clover is first in career block assists with
256 and Hunter is first in career block solos with
102.
