About The daily Nebraskan. ([Lincoln, Neb.) 1901-current | View Entire Issue (Feb. 7, 1903)
Thus far, this has been a very suc
cessful athletic week for Nebraska.
The basket ball team which 1b away on
a western trip In Colorado and Wyom
ing, has won threo straight games by
very decisive scores.
Tuesday night the Cornhuskers, af
ter a ride on the train of some ten
hours, lined up against their first foe,
Denver university, at Denver. While
the men were not In the best of form
they went Into tha game with a dash
from the first Captain Hewitt was a
star at center and threw ten fouls.
The Nebraskans led throughout and
when time was called the score stood
44 to 29 In their favor. Denver chal
lenged Nebraska for a game Monday
night, which was accepted on condi
tion that the CornhuskorB' manage
ment get one hundred dollars. This
is very gratifying, as it will go a long
ways towards paying the expenses of
the entire trip.
Wednesday night, after a short trip
to Colorado Springs, Nebraska faced
the warriors of Colorado college. This
was a fierce game, but the outcome was
never In doubt. Hewitt starred at
center again and Elliot did some fin 9
work. The game, ended 37 to 11 In
favor of Nebraska.
Thursday night at 8 p. m. found the
Nebraska team pitted against one of
our football rivals, Colorado univer
sity, at Boulder. Colorado had de
termined to make up for her defeat in
football by literally smothering the
basket ball team from the Cornhusker
state. Nebraska was aware of this
fact and went into the contest with
the one idea of upholding the stand
ard of the scarlet and cream. In tho
first half, although the floor was very
slippery, Nebraska fairly swept their
opponents from their feet and the half
ended 21 to 4 in favor of the Corn
huskers. The Boulder men took a wonderful
brale In the second half and made
eight points while Nebraska made only
five. Nebraska far excelled In (earn
work In the first half, but in the
second half honors were about even
in this respect Nebraskans had the
advantage of superior height Colo
rado's strenuous work was to no
avail and the game ended 26 to 12 in
favor of the Cornhuskers.

Apropos of this, we suggest a change
In the composition of the board, which
Is generally followed In most of the
large eastern universities. While not
Intending to disparage In any way the
most commendable work of paBt
boards, it is thought that the new ar
rangement would mean even a strong
er administration of all university
It would bo following the growth
which Nebraska has experienced along
those linos In rocent years that tho
board bo constituted of aluftinl mem
bers of the university, either In tho
university Itself or not connected with
It In the sense of a student or In
structor. In other words, the matter of poll
tics and undergraduate administration
would give place to more non-partlBan
methods and maturor methods of car
rying on the necessary business.
Other schools have found this to be
tho most satisfactory means to the
regulation of athletics. For one thing
tho tlmo of undergraduates given to
this work would bo spent In things
more Important to them Individually.
And another this more active work on
the part of alumni would create In
them and retain a lively interest in
their alma mater.
We offer this suggestion as one
worthy of consideration and one
which Is of vital Interest to the uni
versity at large.
The Cornhuskers will next year be
pitted against five elevens that were
strangers to Nebraska last fall. After
a four years' rupture with Iowa,
friendly relations have been resuriied.
Neither Missouri or Minnesota will be

Bellevuo college. The big games will
be Haskell Indians, Colorado univer
sity, Knox college and Illinois univer
sity. With the loss of the Minnesota
game the gate receipts will not be as
large next year, but less Improve

financial condition will probably con

The coach will get a leave of absence
noxt year from the first of April to
September first. He makes no state
ment as to next year's prospect.
F. H. Yost will coach tho Michigan
football team again noxt year. Mr.
Yost came to this decision a short
time ago after considerable delibera
tion. In an article to tho Michigan Dally
News the coach BayB: "Though It In
volves great sacrifice on my part, both
pecuniary and otherwise, I fell that
I will at no time regret my decision."
He warns the university that It will
be harder to maintain their standard
next year than it was this, because
they will be the main object of attack
from every university In the west
He urges that Michigan abandon the
Idea of "winning as a matter of
course" .and says: "The student body
must back us up all the time." Coach
Yost declines to make any statement
In regard to the outcome next year.
He simply remarks, "We are hero to
win." That the famous c6ach will put"
out a winning team next year, If any
one does, has certainly been demon
strated by his past record.
