Huskers At Their Defensive
Best Against Sooners-Bill
Sports Staff Writer
The boys, Coach Bill Glassford
said, probably played the best de
fensive game of the season.
"Our offensive was no threat
because Bordogna couldn't run
and the line didn't block any
body." On the first play of the game,
John Bordogna reiniured his
ankle and was forced to limp
throughout the rest of the game.
The team has tried hard all
season, Glassford stated, al
though they made mistakes.
Dennis Emanuel, Bill Scha
backer and the whole defensive
line should be commended, the
coach added.
"Bob 'Moon' Mullen played
one of his best games of the sea
ion Saturday. He is a better line
backer4han tackle," Glassford de
clared Bob v Reynolds, Bordogna, Jim
Yiesley and Bill Giles are all on
the injury list. Glassford won't
know of the availability of these
boys until later in the week. (
At the weekly session of the
Quarterback club, Glassford read
this poem:
"Every year has its winter,
And every year has its rain,
It's seven down and one week
to go in the Daily Nebraskan ex
pert race this year and sports ed
itor, Bob Banks, leads the field
with a .701 percentage.
Banks hit six of nine selec
tions this week to maintain his
lead over' sports staff writer
Arley Bondarin. Bondarin was
successful on a like number and
holds a .675 mark.
Arnie Stern, assistant buwiness
manager landed seven correct
games to slip into third place with
a .602 percentage. Stern's total L
now 51 winners and 77 losers.
A combination of Marshall
Kushner's, assistant sports edi
tor, continually surge and Jack
Cohen's continual slipping r-"-'t
provides the standings with a
tie for fourth place. Kuiiiaar
hit eight of nine predictions and
Cohen, business manager, six to
tie them with a .650 average.
Sports writers Ron Gibson and
Tom Becker battled to a tie for
fifth plage this week. Becker hit
eight to pull up from a four-way-tie
for twelfth place and Gibson
arrived from seventh with seven
Doug Wilcox, sports taff writer,
fell into eighth after holding fifth
position in last week's standings.
Wilcox came through with five
correct calls to share the spot
with editor Tom Rische. Both are
hitting .623.
Dale Reynolds, ag editor, and
Shirley Murphy news editor,
are riding In a tic for eleventh
place with 597. It marks the
first time in the series of prog
nostication that any expert has
fallen below the .600 mark.
Don Pleper, managing editor, is
lone occupant in the cellar this
week after the teams threw him
for five losses and four wins.
Pieper has a .584 record.
The gap between the business
department and the sports staff
has been drawn even closer to
gether. Business has an overall
average of .656 while the sports
department possesses a .654 sea
sonal record.
The editorial department is
inking even lower after they
compiled 20 correct selections
in 36 attempts to bring their de-
partment total down to .600.
Tom Becker and Marshall
Kushner were chbsen experts of
the week after missing only the
Indiana-Purdue tussle. Dropping
averages will bear out the rug
gedness of last week's prognosti
cation slate.

Miami is seeking its tenth
consecutive intersectional, win.
The Hurricanes topped Purdue,
7-0, in their only other inter
sectional win of the campaign.
Miami started playing inter
sectional contests in 1930, four
years after the school was
opened. That year, the Hurri

and lost to Temple, 34-0, in the
Atlantic City Coliseum.
Since 1830, Miami has played
in 54 intersectional tussles. The
Hurricanes won 34, lost 17 and
three were deadlocked.

There is an old Chinese proverb which reads "This, too, will

It simply means that no matter whether things are good or
bad, they will not stay that way forever.
Being a firm believer in old Chinese proverbs, The Bench-

Courtesy Lincoln star, scarcer than the proverbial hens' teeth during
CEDERDAHL the 1951 season, Bill Glassford's young charges
have gained valuable experience which will serve them to good
advantage next year.
Imagine the potentialities the Cornhuskers will have with such
budding stars as Jim Cederdahl, Ray Novak, John Bordogna, Jerry
Minnick, Bill Schabacker, Dennis Emanuel and George Cifra all
having a year of varsity experience under their belts! And these are
not the only ones. The whole Scarlet and Cream squad is gaining
the know-how it needs to be a gridiron power.
Maybe next year Bill Glassford won't go hungry.
Now for some folderol about Saturday's tussle with the Okla
homa Sooners.
The big bad wolf wasn't so tough after all, even though Bud
Wilkinson's Sooners had little trouble in breezing past Nebraska
by a 27-0 score. The dopesters had predicted that the Oklahomans
would roll over the Huskers, and some "experts" were even going
so far as to predict a 40-point margin for Oklahoma.
But the spirited Cornhusker line rose to the occasion, and suc
ceeded in slowing down the highly-touted Oklahoma offensive
machine. Buck McPhail, who had been the nation's leading ball
carrier, saw his ground-gaining average take a drop. Unofficial
averages gave McPhail credit for 4.5 yards per carry, about half his
previous average.
However, the Scarlet forwards were unable to stop completely
a backfield which ran behind the blocking of Jim Weatherall, Tom
Catlin, Roger Nelson, Jack Lockett and the other outstanding
Sooner forwards. With Dick Heatly and Buddy Leake carrying
the ball most of the way, Oklahoma moved efficiently down the
field. So efficient was their ground game that the Sooners seldom
took to the air, although they have a potent aerial attack.
Offensively, there were few bright spots for the Cornhuskers,
as the hard-charging Oklahoma line broke in on the Nebraska
backs time after time to spill them for losses. So effective was the
defensive play of Oklahoma's line that the Cornhuskers' rushing total
for the game was 17 yards.
And the Scarlet-shirted Huskers made mistakes again, for
givable errors which can be corrected by experience.
"This, too, will pass away."
Swimmer Over Record
"We only want boys who are
trying," Lepley stated. "There is
a lot of work to do."
Lepley felt that improvement
in a swimmer was more important
than the record of the team.
Iowa State, Oklahoma, and
Colorado always have good boys,
Coach iiepley said. It's hard this
early in the season to say who
will be the best in the Big Seven
The squad will be built around
ur lettermen, Buele Balderson,
rry Desmond, Pat Healy and
omer Munson.
As the situation stands now,
ebraska will have a swimming
1am and that's about fill. Times
acorded so far will have to be
.mproved by several seconds.
