NU, Sooners, Top Big 7
Staff Sports Writer
After a slow start, the Nebraska Cornhuskers have taken a liking
to the apex of Big 7 as they are currently tied with the Oklahoma
Sooners, having a 3-0 mark. k
The Sooners extended their conference victory skein to 26 at the
expense of the hapless Kansas State Wildcats, 40-7. It left the Okla-
homans with an overall 6-0 record. They have conference engage
ments left with Nebraska, Missouri, and Iowa State and a non-confer

then come home for the remaining two games. A victory Saturday
could bring the Nil over-all mark to 4-4. A win would almost assure
the Huskers of a second-place spot in the Big 7.
This week finds NU at Iowa State, Kansas State at Kansas,
Oklahoma at Missouri and Utah at Colorado.

Joy contests with a lot of action,
not a tense battle, and the 31,000
fans that braved arctic winds to
see the University of Nebraska
down the University of Kansas
19-14 got their money's worth.
The contest produced a total
rushing yardage of 588 yards. The
lines opened mamouth holes on of
fense and leaked profusely on de
fense. The difference in the game
was the running of Nebraska half
back's Rex Fischer end Willie
Greenlaw. This duo combined to
tarry the ball 46 out of the 76 times
the 6ig Red controlled the ball.
They also accounted for 256 of the
338 yards the Cornhuskers gained
Saturday afternoon.
Nebraska kept the ball on the
ground most of the game and
showed they could control the foot
ball. They scored the first time
they got their hands on the ball.
The Jayhawks immediately
marched 42 yards to go ahead 7-6.
But that was the last time Kansas
ever - saw the lead. The Corn
huskers marched back and went
ahead 12-7 when Fischer swept
right end for 14 yards and a touch
down. In the third quarter the Huskers
inarched 67 yards to score. Kan
sas bounced back in the fourth per
iod to press 14-19. With a little more
than two minutes left the Kansans
forced Don Erway into the wind.

Iowa State's freshman football
team, who already had a game
under their belts, outlasted the
Cornhusker yearlings here Friday
in a cold windy Memorial Stadium
battle 17-14. ,
It looked as though the game
might end in a deadlock until with
4 minutes left in the game Kevin
O'Neil 190-pound fullback split the
uprights with, a place kick from
the Nebraska 15 yard line.'
The Cornhusker freshmen got off
to an early lead as Gary Johnson,
six-man graduate from Madrid in
tercepted a Cyclone pass on his
7 yard line and raeed-68 yards only-j
to be stopped on the Iowa State
eleven. Quarterback Eddie Corazzi
who played the entire game went
the final three yards on a plunge
and Rich King made the first of
his two conversions.
Iowa State tied the game up in
the second period when-Bob Davis
ran 31 yards to score and O'Neil
The young Huskers came back
full of spirit and fight in the sec
ond half and after an exchange of
fumbles Bennie Dillard, Texas
speedster broke loose on a 79 yard
gallop to pay dirt. Dillard received
a couple of good blocks and then
outraced the visitors. King , again
Iowa State returned the kickoff
to their 31 yard line and on the
first play went to the Husker seven
on a pass from Terry Ingram to
Bob Harden, former Omaha Ben
son star, before he was caught from
behind by DillarA Ingram squeezed
across by inches on fourth down
after the Husker freshman had
thrown up a tight defense. O'Neil
converted and the game was tied
again and remained this way until
the deciding field goal.

Without A Coach
I think it's about time somebody rave BiU Gtassford a cat on
the back.
You may not like the "man . . , you may never agree with him
you might not believe in his way of coaching football ... but you
must admit one thing: All things considered, our football coach is
doing a pretty good job this season.
Crippled by graduation, ineligibility and constant injuries to W
players, Glassfbrd has nevertheless fielded one of the gamest, most
spiraea squaas in HusKer tootoau history. ,
All through the season thus far. Glassford has received criticism
from fans, students, businessmen and, for want of a better word,
the sportswriters. Now tnat the Huskers can bask once again in the
sunlight, everyone praises the fighting spirit of the team, the seady
improvement of the backfield, the drive and determination of the line.
But one factor, one important factor, is missing. Everyone, and
most noticeably the sportswriters, seems to be very careful not' to
mention Glassford and his staff's part in molding this team.
Gregg McBride, sportswriter for the World Herald, spent a whole
column talking about the "gameness" of the '55 Huskers. Only
mention of Glassford was that he was forced "each week to dig
deep into the barrel."
Wally Provost, sports editor of Hie Herald, has commented that
the Huskers "might be playing for the conference championship Nov.
19 . . ." No mention of Glassford's part in such a splendid finish.
And then, of course, there's the Bobbsey twins, plodding dully
along in the same old rut. With these roly poly, unimaginative buf
foons, it's still the same record: if the Huskers lose, they play "Good
bye, Bill." If the Huskers win, they flip the record and start talking
about team spirit.
But it is rather painfully obvious and quite unfair to praise the
team and completely ignore the coach. Especially, when the team
supports the coach almost to man. And especially when our coach
is doing a pretty darn good job.
Yet, this is the case.
The simple and ugly truth Is that our sportswriters, either from
personal enmities or the editorial stand of their newspapers, will not
or cannot comment favorably about Bill Glassford.
This is indeed a sad state of affairs for that part of the American
way of life which is characterized by the slogan, "It's not whether you
won or lost; it's how you played the game."
