THE DAILY NEBRASKAN
By BOB BANKS
J la this, my last pieca of Journalistic work for The Daily N.
crwkan, I would like to express a few personal opinions concern
ng the past semester.
There ts not t whole lot one can say about the Cornhusker
football team of 1951. It has been my policy and that of my (Staff
U seppn Bill Glassford anllmitedty. This, I believe, was and is
the onjy right policy to take. In my opinion, Bill did the very best
job that could have been done In view of injuries, bad weather
land thousands pf over-confident football fans. I believe that Ne.
Ibraska will be m&kinr a bad mistake if it ever discharres- him
cause of a losing season.

Your predictions concerning the 1952 football team are as good
as mine. Personally, I think it will be improved, although 1 do
not expect a suaaen miracie 10 occur wnictj win shift Nebraska
into tha national spotlight. Of one thing I am certain, At least we
will not be bulging with overconfldence because of flowery writing
by sports writers on the national scene. I am sure most of them
were forced to blush a great deal after Nebraska ended its 1951
grid season. They will not relish going through the .same ordeal
gain next year.
Conoernlnr the reneral de-emphasis of college sports, I am
ail afr it I want to see football and basketball return to a status
where- coaches, players and fans alike can enjoy the rames with
out worrying so much whether their teams win or lose. This can
be accomplished only by a general de-emphasis.
On the other hand, I hope these college presidents do not get
carried away so much that they go overboard. College sports should
be de-emphasised, but that does not mean a complete throat-cutting
job, as some people seem to visualise,
Rare an aur own campus, I would, like to see minor sports
raeelve a more prominent status. I heard via the grapevine that
an of the eoaches was very displeased aver an editorial I wrote
which stressed the point ef putting a little more emphasis on
minor sports. My answer to him Is that a complete throat-cutting
Job was done to miner sports at Nebraska years ago. As I said
before, there Is a distinct difference between de-emphasis and
complete curtailment. It seems to me that there is nothing left to
curtail as far as minor sports are concerned.
(During the past semester, there have been a few unfortunate
Incidents which I would have avoided if possible. However, I do not
apolff.?ue for any of the things that I have done. Perhaps they
might have been handled differently, but basically I would still
follow the same courses I have during the past semester. I think I
was right, -and I believe that is sufficient justification for my actions.
I would like to express my thanks to one of the best sport
reportorial staffs la the history of The Daily Nebraskan. It ts by
far the best that I have worked with since entering eollege. Fel
lows like Marshall Kushner, Bon Gibson, Tob Backer, Ed Berg,
Arley Bondarln. Glenn Nelson, Doug Wilcox and Cork Biemond
have been the backbone of the sports staff. They worked faith
fully tn an effort to turn out a sports pate. The only reward they
got was an occasional by-line and the satisfaction of writing. Since
most of them are Journalism majors, I believe they got quite a
bit of pleasure from writing. Under their guidance, The Daily
Nebraskan sports page should improve tremendously during future
Having been a member of the sports staff since my freshrr1 n
year- I naturally feel some regret in leaving The Daily Nebraska
But I believe that regret is more than atoned for by the experience
I have had while working as a reporter, assistant sports and sports
Good luck on final examinations.

OU To Protect Win
Streak; Wrestle A.M.
With Billy Borders and Tommy
Evans, its tiny NCAA runners-up

way into higher weight divisions
this year, Oklahoma's defending
National Collegiate and Big Seven

open their 1952 season Friday
against Colorado A&M.
Coach Port Robertson s Soon
ars will be protecting a short
string ef nine consecutive dual
meet wins, all of them collected
in last season's sweep. Last
Sooner defeat was to Oklahoma
A&M 7-21 here in the final bout
of the 1954 campaign.
Borders, who won 15 straight
bouts at 123 pounds last year be
fore losing 7-6 in the NCAA finals
to the defending national cham
pion, Tony Gizoni of Waynesburg,
is down for duty at 130 pounds
this year. Busy with his pre-law
studies, the little Tulsan may have
to miss some of Oklahoma's road
matches this season.
Evans, who as a sophomore
137-pounder last year won 16
straight bouts before bowing be
fore George Layman of Okla-.
homa A&M 7-5 in the national,
finals, has grown to the 147-,
pound class this season.
All men wishing to go out
for spring football are request
ed to contact Coach Bill Glass
ford before February 29. This
announcement pertains to any
student In the University who
might be interested in playing
spring football and not just last
Mason's team alone.
Although tryouts later this

at 137, Evans of Tulsa at 147,
Bryan Rayburn at 157, Frank
Marks at 167, Joe Butler or Larry
