schedule with 33 sophs and fresh

"come out and see a pretty fair

GUNNING FOR THE COYOTES ... Bob Reynolds, who set a national scoring record In 1950 as a sophomore and made most All
America selections at his left halfback position, is reported In top condtion for the South Dakota game. Reynolds, who was hobbled
by injuries during most of the 1951 season, will be game captain Saturday afternoon. A senior this year, Reynolds is bound to make a
great comeback. He is one of the top passers and punters listed on the Husker line-up, as well as the main scoring threat on the
ground. Reynolds holds down the left halfback position on T formation plays, and runs, kicks and passes from the tailback spot when
the Cornhusker team uses the spread formation.

U Reserves Add
Strength To Varsity
One of the most gratifying de
velopments in the University of
Minnesota football camp since the
opening of fall practice Sept. 3
has been the progress made by
players who were in the "deep
reserve category last season.
Clint Andrus, an all-city
tackle at Mineapolis Southwest
high, failed to show the ex
pected "stuff" as a freshman tn
1951, but began to impress the
staff in spring practice this year
and in the past two weeks has
"blossomed out" into a good
tackle. The 6 foot inch, 215
pound sophomore is now ranked
as a No. 2 defensive tackle and
may move higher during the
season ahead.
Phil McElroy, sophomore end
from Preston, was far down the
ranks last fall, but is slated for
extensive duty both offensively
and defensively this fall. He looks
the part of an end with his 6 foot
3 inch frame and 185 well-distributed
pounds. The coaching
staff comments that he has made
great progress in the past 10 days.
McElroy's high school teammate
at Preston, Buzz Meighen, was
used only sparsely in the '51 cam
paign, but now seems to be rap
idly mastering the duties of a
right halfback. Coach Wes Fes-
ler predicts that he will be of
great value this fall, alternating
with Kermit Klefsaas in the wing
back spot which has been a con
sistent Minnesota headache for
Chuck Stamschror, rugged 6
foot 1 inch 200-pounder from
Kellogg wasn't included on the
varsity roster a year ago, but
now probably rates the tag of
"most improved sophomore."
He is a fixture at center line
backer in the defensive unit.
Fred Techel, an impressive
physical specimen at 6 feet 1 Inch
and 190 pounds, saw only a few
moments of offensive action in
'51, but now ranks as No. 1 un
derstudy to Paul Giel, Minnesota's
record-breaking left halfback. Af
ter a slow start this fall, the rangy
sophomore from Milwaukee found
himself in scrimmage ' day after
day while Giel and Dale Quist

Your sports experts are again
predicting football games this
year. Although most opening
games are one-sided this season,
a few of the games are decidedly
toss-up contests.
Ten Daily Nebraskan writers
and former sports editors are
picking your winners this year.
They are Glenn Nelson, Chuck
Klasek, Bart Brown, Howard
Vann, Maury Lip ton, Bob Serr,
Marshall Kushner, Klmon Kar

The games 'in question this
week are Kansas-TCU, Maryland
Missouri, K-fatate-B r a d l e y,

Another 1951 "deep reserve"
who has soared to the fore this
