Injuries Hobble Cornhuskers
As Colorado Encounter Looms
BY GLENN NELSON
Sports Staff Writer
The Cornhusker footbnll sqund
will be slowed by Injuries this
week as Conch Bill Glassford's
pupils prepare to meet the Colo
rado Buffaloes' invasion Saturday.
As the fog lifted from the Cy-
clone field at Ames Saturday,
the initial Husker win of the
season appeared a costly one.
Several Nchraskans are on
Coach Glassford's doubtful list.

Just what the doctor ordered.
In a nutshell that describes Nebraska's win over Iowa State last
Saturday, its first of the season.
Cornhusker grid fans who made the trek to Ames reported
that Nebraska's blocking was as crisp as that of some of the scarlet
pre-war teams. Jerry Mlnnlck, sophomore defensive tackle, proved
that he is no flash In the pan. Ills outstanding play of the day, of
course, was breaking up an Iowa State statue of liberty play,
grabbing the ball and running It over for a touchdown. Besides
this outstanding bit of play, Mlnnlck consistently downed Cyclone
ball carriers and broke up Iowa State plays.
He had an ample amount of help from Don Boll, Bob Mullen,
Carl Brasee, Ed Husmann nnd Dick Goll.
The Iowa State encounter also indicated that Nebraska's pass
defense is improving. In Cyclone passer Dick Mann, the Buskers
faced one of the top aerialists in the Big Seven. Despite tho fact that

he was the main cog in the Iowa State otTcnsive machine, NU pass
defenders managed to restrict his effectiveness in the second half.
For all-around purposes, the Nebraska defensive platoon played
its best game against Iowa State, although it had turned in some
credible performances earlier in the season.
The thing that really raised some eyebrows was the poise that
sophomore quarterback John Bordogna exhibited behind the spread
formation which Nebraska employed. He ran the team like a vet
eran, and his passing was the main weapon in the Husker attack.
Considered something nf a disappointment in earlier games, Bor
dogna erased any doubts about his ability against the Cyclones.
He said the spread formation made his passing chores easier than
does the T formation. This concurs with the opinion of Sammy
Vacant!, Nil quarterback during the middle forties, who also had
difficulty with the T.
Ray Novak, fullback, also proved that he is a canable replace
ment for Nick Adduci, who was lost
power, Novak also was one of the top pass receivers of the day. He
is now the top scorer on Hill Glassford's team.
In gaining 80 yards on 10 carries, Bob Reynolds, gave shadow
like performances of the running that made him an All-American
In boiling the whole situation down, It can be said that both
the defense and offense teamed up to play good ball. This one win
may be the thing needed to explode the true Cornhusker potential
wide open. Three games remain on the Husker slate. They include
Colorado, Oklahoma and Miami. While all three of these schools
possess good teams, Nebraska may be in a position to give any or
all of them a long afternoon on the gridiron.
Eddie Crpwder Just Misses
Parillis National Passing Mark
Eddie Crowder, Oklahoma's
skillful young quarterback from
Muskogee, Okla., had a national1
record in his grasp during Okla-j
homa's 55-14 defeat of Colorado'
at Norman, Okla.
Eddie pitched four touchdown
forward passes in the first 17
minutes and 16 seconds of last
Saturday's game asainst the
Golden Buffaloes. With only
2:26 of the second quarter gone,
Crowder had completed five of
five for 167 yards and four
The top mark in the records for
one game is five touchdown
passes, made twice last year by
Vito Parilli, Kentucky's fine quar-
terback, while Kentucky was
overwhelming Cincinnati 41-7 and
North Dakota 83-0.
After pegging four touchdown
passes in 17:16 against Colo-
rado, Crowder had 43 minutes !
and 44 seconds nearly three
full quarters left in which to
fracture Parilli's record.
On the Oklahoma sideline,
Coach Bud Wilkinson was noti
fied by press box telephone of
Crowder's close proximity to
Parilli's national record. But
the Sooner coach elected to pass
up the opportunity.
He soon withdrew Crowder to
give valuable quarterbacking ex
perience to two sophomore signal-callers,
Jack Van Pool and
Jack Ging. Crowder went back in
for part of the last half, but con
centrated on Oklahoma's rushing
offensive. He threw only two ad
ditional passes in the game, hit
ting End Jack Lockett for eight
yards with one. Lockett dropped
the other one, narrowly missing
making a shoestring catch.
Here's a pair that geta along-famously in any college
man's wardrobe. The Manhattan Burt is in the ever-popular
white oxford cloth with a softly rolled button-down collar.

to the draft. Besides his runnine
Eddie missed Parilli's national
mark because he and his coach
decided to ignore it, but his four
touchdown pitches with the
game only 17 minutes and 16
seconds old, and in a total
elapsed time of only 13 min
utes 50 seconds from the first
touchdown pass at 3:26 of the
first quarter to the fourth
touchdown pass at 2:16 of the
second quarter, is believed a
feat no other collegiate passer
has ever approached in 45 years
of American football since the
forward pass was first legalized

couldn't concentrate on the race.
