Delany, officials criticized
by Mike Gill
Daily Football Writer
Bo Schembechler still hasn't forgotten about the game that ended
his college football coaching career.
The former Michigan football coach created quite a stir this
summer when the paperback edition of his best selling "Bo" was
released. It contained an additional chapter from last year's released
hardback version.
Schembechler claimed Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany had a
vendetta against him for an unknown reason and could have cared less
if the Big Ten representative won the Rose Bowl. In addition, he said
Delany prejudiced officials before Michigan's conference showdown
last year against Illinois.
While Schembechler criticized the officiating crew for attending
the Rose Bowl parade, citing that they had to wake up around 5 a.m.
to attend, he was most upset about the famous and infamous fourth
down holding call that ended Michigan's Rose Bowl hopes.
On fourth down and the scored tied 10-10 in the fourth quarter,
punter Chris Stapleton ran to his left on a fake punt, taking the ball
from the Wol-verines 46-yard line to Southern Cal's 30. In a
controversial call, the wing official called holding, negating
Stapleton's run. Schembechler said he was told the official's call was
"premeditated." Shortly after, Schembechler was hit with an
unsportsmanlike conduct call, giving the Trojans excellent field
position in what turned out to be their drive toward the winning
touchdown.
Bo wrote: "I honestly believe that (Delany) was just as happy that
Michigan lost that Rose Bowl....This Delany is bad news, and people
should know it."
Schembechler, who cowrote his autobiography with Detroit Free
Press columnist Mitch Albom, said that one month after the Rose
Bowl, he received a telephone call from Gene Calhoun, the supervisor
of officials for the Big Ten. Calhoun said he was resigning his position
because of Delany. Schembechler then repeated what Calhoun said to
him.
"'First of all, after the Rose Bowl, he (Delany) wanted me to come'
out and say the game was well officiated and the call on the fake punt
was correct,' Calhoun told Schembechler. "'He wanted me to say
you had no reason to protest it. I didn't say a word, Bo. You know my
policy is not to comment on any play after the game.
"'But between you and me, that call was premeditated. It was the
rottenest call I've ever seen. You were right to complain.'"
Calhoun went on to tell Schembechler that in a meeting before the
game, the officials talked of not letting Schembechler "get away"
with intimidation tactics and at a postgame party the officials
constantly said, "Bo got what was coming to him"
*Delany called Calhoun before Michigan's trip to Champaign to
face the Fighting Illini. Delany mentioned that the game was a "big
game." Calhoun said this was wrong because to an official, no game
can be more important than another. Delany told Calhoun to watch
certain Illinois players for holding and playing "overaggressive." He
then said he wanted Michigan's coaches held to the rules and to throw
a flag immediately when Schembechler stepped out of the coaching
box.
"Bo, he was trying to mind-set us. You can't do that to the
officials," Calhoun said.
The book went on sale in mid-August and sells for $5.95. No
percentage of the profits go to the Big Ten or the Jim Delany
Scholarship Fund.

Predicting
Mo' s first ,year
Time for football season.
And with football season comes predictions. But as I sit with my
crystal ball in front of me, the images and shapes are so vivid and in
color, these can no longer be called predictions.
Simply put, this is the truth.
WEEK NUMBER 1: AT NOTRE DAME
Gary Moeller is nervous. He starts his career
with a prime time audience watching his every Gill
move. He pays attention to detail. He figures the
Wolverines will be safe and receive a good night's
sleep at a monastery - something not foreign to
Notre Dame. Little does he figure that the local
nuns also use it for singing practice. With Sunday
soon to arrive, the nuns go on a 24 hour practice
session of the inspiring tune, Ave Maria. The
Wolverines do not sleep. They think they have a
new fight song. Moeller is worried.
Lou Holtz's band of choir boys spend a reckless
night on the town.
Michigan wins on a Hail Mary pass with no
time on the clock.
"We had the Catholics on our side this time," Moeller proclaims,
mentioning their night of divine revelation through song.
Holtz fumes at the comment. "The steroid makers must be
Protestant," he retaliates. "The Luck of the Roids didn't come
through."
WEEK 2: UCLA
Moeller, who seems to have a few superstitions, brings the team
back to the Notre Dame monastery they stayed at the week before in
hopes of again being serenaded.
But early Saturday morning, as the team heads back toward
Michigan Stadium for the game, they are met by a violent snowstorm.
The Wolverines miss kickoff and forfeit the game.
"Son, this is Michigan weather" Bo Schembechler tells a tearful
Moeller, who couldn't believe snow would occur in September.
Meanwhile, fans burn a doll resembling Moeller in the Diag at noon
the following Monday.
WEEK 3: MARYLAND
No surprises here. Michigan concedes an opening drive touchdown
to Maryland, then route the Terps, 42-7.
"Bo only beat them 41-21 last year," a now insecure Moeller points
out.
WEEK 4: AT WISCONSIN
To prove his coaching ability, Moeller lets the entire squad have the
week off and names hockey coach Red Berenson as his defensive
coordinator and basketball coach Steve Fisher as his offensive
coordinator. Mo then assembles a squad made up of the club soccer,
water polo, and crew teams to play the Badgers. That's the women's
club soccer, water polo and crew teams.
The Wolverines romp 56-0.
