From The Presshox
"Wen," a fan remarked after the K -State game Saturday, "I guess
we're going to have to put the 'Goodbye, Bin posters in storage for
a couple of weeks anyway."
Two or three or four or five weeks until the Huskers lose their
next game win probably be exactly how long the posters and th
accompanying denunciation of BiU Glassford wiU
stay in storage.
And, I imagine, just about the time the Huskers
lose their next ball game the sports scribes win
unlimber their journalistic sledgehammers and
begin hammering merrily away again.
Glassford is not unused to this sort of treat
ment. As a big time coach he. realizes both he and
his team live in a glass box which is never im
mune from criticism.
Moreover, he fully knows that this win be a
bumper year for brickbats and slingshots because
of the five year contract which expires this year
and the five year option which he can take or leave.
successful under fire . . .
In fact, Glassford has been much more successful than most coaches
in weathering the fire under which aU are placed. He told one of his
players that he followed only two simple rules when placed under

Through it an so far, the Hawaii defeat, the Orange Bowl debacle
and the player revolt two years ago. this simple phUosophy has held
our coach in good stead and has done him credit as a coach and a man.
However, the worst is yet to come.
AH three of Nebraska's large dailies, the Omaha World-Herald,
the Lincoln Journal and the Lincoln Star appear to be lined up solidly
the Bobsey twins
Don Bryant and Dick Becker, the Bobsey twins of the Lincoln
press, have been taking sly pokes at Glassford for some time. In a
typicany objective article two weeks ago, Bryant, the sports editor
of the Star, decrying the low state of Nebraska footbaH, concluded
by saying, "Nebraska footban has become a laughing matter, which
has long ceased to be funny."
Becker, sports editor of the' Journal, has not been as outwardly
critical of Glassford, but be nevertheless has written several pieces in
which "the disintegration of fee Husker footban machine" and "What's
Wrong With Nebraska Football?" was discussed.
The Journal and the Star both appear to want no part of Glassford.
The most interesting of the three papers, however, is the editorial
position of the World-Herald.
Long a partisan of Glassford, they came cut Sept. 22 in a lead
editorial which asked that the NU coach, because of nrevious trmihW
both with fans and players, "resign gracefully at the end of the season.
This was an obvious reversal of editorial policy which had sinv
ported Glassford for years, particularly during the player revolt in 1353.
Shortly afterward, the Herald announced that Floyd Olds, fee sports
editor who had been with the paper for 23 years, had resigned. The
reversal in policy was, apparently, a contributing factor to Olds
The Nebraskan doesn't care if every paper in the state is against
Glassford. Nor does it care if the Star, Journal or the Herald is dead
set against him. However, in the interests of fair play,. , journalism
ethics aad just plain decency, we would like to ask three things.
all we ask . .
1. THAT THERE EE NO DISTORTION OF THE REGULAR
SPORTS STORIES IN SYMPATHY WITH A "GET RID OF GLASS
FORD" EDITORIAL POLICY. .
Comments such as "BuCding foreman Bin Glassford ... Nebras
ka's Hamlet-cpoting footban coach, Thursday got around to announc
ing the probable starting lineup. . . . NU Building Boom a Bust" have
no place in the headlines or sports stories of reputable newspapers.
AH opinion and editorial comment, as infantile as it often is, must
be reserved for the by-lined columns and editorial page. This is just
plain, good journalism, but we thought weVe seen so little of it lately
on the sports page that we thought we'd mention it.
2. THAT ABUSIVE CRITICISM OF GLASSFORD AND TEAM
WATT UNTIL THE END OF THE SEASON. This sort of criticism can
do no one any good now.
3. THAT THE PAPERS, WHETHER THEY CHANGE OR NOT,
AT LEAST REEXAMINE THEIR EDITORIAL STAND ON BILL
Reexamine it, as the Nebraskan itself r3 and as is ocly fair, in
the light of what happens this season, Glassford's present popularity
with his players and the obligation the University and the state have
in honoring Glassford's option if he decides to take it.
An we ask of you, Bin Glassford, is that you keep on coaching
footfosn as you have so far this season. And keep your two rules of
philosophy handy. YouTl probably need them.
AH we ask of you, Huskers of "55, is that you keep on playing
footban as you did against Ohio State and Kansas State.
An we ask of you, fellow compatriots in the newspaper Industry,
is that you give our coach and his team a sporting chance.
Everyone would appreciate it.
