Is there a quarterback controversy at Michigan? Not in Bo Schembechler's mind. There had been a report that Schembechler had named Michael Taylor, who has not played since the opener against Notre Dame, as the starting quarterback this week when the Wolverines visit Iowa.
"I didn't say he was starting," Schembechler insisted Tuesday. "What I said was that Taylor has had a week back at practice and should be better ready to return, and he should play."
Coach Fred Akers says he knows how it happens. "We bust assignments," he said. "But I don't know why." - Will someone please tell Hayden Fry that his Hawkeyes are due to be in Evanston Oct. 28 to play Northwestern? "I frankly can't tell you who we play next week," said Fry Tuesday. "I've got tunnel vision."
