IN THE SPIRIT OF MLK

Revenge on the Daily

In October 1979, in the
midst of his legendary career
as head coach of the Michi-
gan football team, Bo Schem-
bechler brought his game plan
for a strong defense off the
field and aimed it at a Michi-
gan Daily reporter.
Dan Perrin, a senior sports
editor covering football for
the Daily at the time, was pri-
vately interviewing Schem-
bechler when the legendary
coach became irate after being
asked about the team's short-
comings and shoved Perrin.
Perrin had asked Schem-
bechler how he planned to
address the team's weak kick-
ers, who had only miade one
out of 10 field goals attempted
that season.
"Would you emphasize
the kicking game more when
recruiting from now on, after

what's happened so far this
season?" Perrin asked, accord-
ing to a Michigan Daily article
at the time.
About to respond, Schem-
bechler became angry about
the question. Schembechler
proceeded to knock the micro-
phone Perrin was holding
from his hand, poke him in the
chest, then grab his throat and
push him backward.
"Don't try to make me look
bad, you understand, son, or
I'll throw you the hell out of
Michigan football," he said.
The incident took place at
Wdber's Inn on Jackson Road,
outside the press luncheon
room the site of weekly press
conferences with Schem-
bechler.
Despite being shaken, Per-
rin was not particularly upset
about the incident. Perrin

attributed Schembechler's out-
burst to the less-than-desired
kicking record at the time.
"I think Bo was just frus-
trated with his kicking game,
not necessarily angry with me
as an individual," Perrin told
the Daily at the time.
Schembechler also
appeared to have recovered
from the incident. When asked
by the Daily at the time about
his reason for shoving Perrin,
he laughed and said, "I don't
even remember; you know
these kids."
Though the 1979 football
season was not the Wolver-
ines' best, finishing the season
with an 8-4 record, Schem-
bechler solidified his reputa-
tion as an equally aggressive
opponent both on and off the
field.
