Buckeyes Provide Next
Tesf For Eager Maskers
By BOB MARTEL
Staff Sports Writer
fresh from an opening day vic
tory over South Dakota, the Corn
huskers will journey to Colum
bus, Ohio to tangle with Ohio
The 1956 Buckeye squad will at
tempt two feats never accomp
lished In Big Ten history: win
three undisputed championships
ana 16 straignt conference games
Ohio State won outrieht chamninn,
ships in 1954 and 1955 and have a
13 game Conference winning streak
In operation. Tne record is 15.
Uncertainties in the line and the
graduation of Howard "Hopalong"
Cassady. perhaps Ohio State's
greatest ever, pose serious prob
lems. Gone from the line are last
year's starting tackles Ken Vargo
and Francis Machinsky. Both were
key men in Woody Hayes' front
Anchoring the forward wall are
pair of excellent guards in Ail
American Jim Parker and Aurel
ius Thomas. Parker is perhaps
the top collegiate interior lineman
in the nation. Thomas is fast, agile
and an excellent blocker.
Unlike 1955. the Buckeves are
solid at quarterback, where de

and experienced Lynn Theis are
Ellwood's leadership, play-call
ing and great clutch running were
superb last year. Kremblas is a
good runner, a natural leader and
an above average passer. Theis
moves the team well and has 60.5
minutes of game experience to
The very difficult task of trying
to replace "Hopalong" Cassady
falls on Don Sutherin who will
play left halfback. Coach Woody
Hayes describes Sutherin as the
best passer, the hardest hitting
back, the best punter and the kick
off specialist of the squad.
At right halfback, Jim Rosboro,
who averaged 6.1 yards per carry
in 1955, returns. A strong defen
sive player, Roseboro was great
ly improved over his sophomore
Don Vicic and Galen Cisco will
man the fullback post. Vicic is an
excellent four-yard back, a jar
ring blocker, deceptive faker and
rugged linebacker. Cisco is the
best blocker among the fullbacks,
very alert on defense and a pun
A "key" player in the Buckeye
grid picture is Hubert Bobo. Gifted
with all the qualities of a great
football player, Bobo, assuming he
clears the scholastic and admin
istrative barriers, can be used at
fullback, halfback or possibly end.
His intensively competitive nature,
coupled with his unusual ability,
will make him a standout at any
If the Buckeye's expect to annex
a third straight title, shortcomings
at tackle, center and an overall line
problem must be overcome. Pros
pects for solving these weaknesses
are only fair but the backfield is
solid. Ohio State will be weaker
defensively and will lack a break
away runner. Although the running
attack looks to be powerful, it will
be a short-yardage offense.

Down they go . . .
Several of the too rated erid

Willie Greenlaw, All Big Seven
halfback last season, has returned
to the Husker grid squad. Green

debut last Friday in the Temple

Do we have a slinging Sammy on

It seems that since the South Da

three passes in three attempts,
Nappi has been taking a lot of
ribbing from his trammates. AI-
