'Gory Be To Glassford'
By HOWARD VANN
The regular football season is over with only the bowl classics re
maining to be played to completely wrap up one of the most mixed up
easons In grid history. It seems that this year had more upsets than
ever before. With the completion of another season's action comes
the post-season honors and polls to determine all-star teams. "Along
this line, coaches of the year are named for large schools, small
schools and just medium size schools. Never let it be said that The
Nebraskan sports staff didn't make their choices.
We'll go along with all the other selections for coaches of the
l?."".', fWe wj" to m the name of Coach William Glassford and
bis staff for a job well done with a team that pre-season experts had
laoDea as a cellar contender.
Maybe the best way to tell
about the fortunes of the coach,
would be to reprint an article
that appeared in a Miami
newspaper a few weeks ago
before the Huskers had cinched
the Orange Bowl bid.
: The overline read. "Glorv
Be To Glassford." The head
line said, "Once Gloomy Ne
braska No. 1 Orange Bowl
Hope." Datelined Thursday,
November i from th
Miami Beach Sun. the storv read like this? .
"The Nebraska Cornhuskers were one big happy football family
, again today.
It was in decided contrast to a year ago, and as might be sur
mised, a couple of victories brought about the change.
Disunion born of defeats transformed players and fans alike Into
a disgruntled group that turned its ire on Coach Bill Glassford last
Once the" scourge of the Midlands under Coaches Dana Bible and
Biff Jones, Nebraska's glory had faded into deepest gloom. Old grads
scowled and demanded a sweeping change in the athletic setup.
But there was the matter of Glassford's five-year contract which
stipulated a five-year option. That saved Glassford's job and gave
him his 1954 opportunity.
He definitely has made the most of it. For there is joy again in
Nebraska's football camp, and all because the revitalized Cornhuskers
defeated Colorado and Missouri on successive weekends.
The team now is a front runner in the race for an Orange Bowl
bid next New Year's Day. Nebraska has a 3-1 record in second place
in the Big Seven Conference with only Kansas and Oklahoma remain
ing on the schedule.
Players who a year ago said they would never play again for
Glassford are with their coach as never before.
Ask. the coach himself about squad morale. He has a one-word
Players who revolted against the coach in 1953 apparently decided
to concentrate their attacks on rival squads. From all indications the
ferocity of these attacks increases each Saturday.
Glassford declines to single out individuals for praise in this re
urgence. See you In Miami ...

Prepare For Road Trip Soufh

Sports Staff Writer
With 87-51 trouncing of South
Dakota under their belts, the Ne
braska basketballers are preparing
for a tough trip south. Thf Hus

Coach Jerry Bush will get rein
forcements for the southern jaunt.
Stan Matzke, senior co-captain, "will
return to action as will Billy Wells,
sophomore firststringer. However,
Bush will be without Gordon Ben
son, junior forward from Ong, who

The Nebraska cagers completely
outclassed the South Dakota team
especially in the second half. The
Huskers were somewhat tense, "pos
sibly because it was their first
home game, and led at the half
by only nine points, 36-27.
They started moving the ball In
the second half, however, and any
team that moves the ball around
is bound to get good shots.
Rex Eckwall poured in eight
quick points on two field goals and
four free throws, Duane Buel hit
on a layup, and Chuck Smith drove
in for a basket to give Nebraska
a 48-31 lead. From then on it was
a complete rout: ,
Rex Ekwall and Chuck Smith
were standouts for Nebraska.
Smith was high scorer with a 22
point performance at the free
throw line. Ekwall played a steady
game and combined with Smith
and Willard Fagler to keep the
Arnold Boich and Bill Roy were
instrumental in the second half
splurge as they got the team mov
ing, and Norm Coufal and Duane
Buel started hitting well. This all
added up to a 36 point margin by
the end of the game.
Free Throws Good
The Huskers' proficiency at th
free throw line was a good sign.
With the new rule allotting an
extra charity toss if the first on
is unsuccessful, the free throw is
becoming increasingly important.
