LAST YEAR, when Nebraska
won 65-53 here, Rath registered
1 1 points for the Cowboys. Padr

also hit the scoring column.
All but Padrnos are scheduled
to start here Tuesday night.
Opening South Dakota center
is expected to be Sophomore Le

Wes Fesler resigned as head
football icoach at the University
of Minnesota in a startling and
surprising move Monday.
Fesler who came to the Goph
ers from Ohio State three years
ago, turned in his resignation to
become a partner, vice president
and director of sports at Minne
apolis radio station WDGY.
Fesler stated he was resigning
with "a great and sincere re
gret. Only an opportunity of
considerable magnitude could
make me wish to leave this po
sition. Such an opportunity has
been presented," he said.
The resignation, coming
swiftly and unexpectedly, was
the second time Fesler had sud
denly given up a head coaching
job at a Big Ten school.
