Jennings Looks at Movies;
usker Scrimmage
By Hal Brown
Nebraska football coach
Bill Jennings, who had said
Saturday that he was disap
pointed with the Husker of
fense in the scrimmage, had
changed his mind Monday
after viewing the movies.
"We played better than 1
had thought Saturday," Jen
nings said. He explained that
they try to do four things of
fensively in the scrimmages.
"We try not to fumble, not
to be offside, not to miss as
signments and not to have
interceptions the Husker
head man stated. "We have
been doing pretty well in
these four things except for
interceptions. We always
manage to have two or three
of those each scrimmage.
"We know that you cant do
all these things perfectly, but
we keep striving for that 100
per cent mark. I think we
only fumbled once Saturday
and I don't believe we had
any offsides."
Jennings said the movies
showed that Willie Ross was
running good along with
Thunder Thornton and the
passing of Ron Gilbreath
"Willie has been running well
all Spring," Jennings commented.
Thornton missed Monday's
workout with a. back injury.
The injury h not expected to
keep him out for any length
of time.
In position changes on the
first unit Monday, Pat Clare
moved into the top spot at
NU Offense Will Get
First Test Saturday
All-Sports Day Tilt May Answer
Questions About New Offense
Will the Nebraska Corn
nuskers, using their wide-
open offense, be able to move
against the Alumni in the
twelfth annual All-Sports day
game Saturday, May 13?
That will be the prime
question as this annual battle
is staged at the stadium.
The alumni group, anchored
on a group of last years sen
iors and younger graduates,
have been working on their
own offense the past week.
Nebraska fans also will be
able to view some of the ex
periments which the Nebras
ka staff has made in the
spring work.
Bill (Thunder) Thornton's
move to left halfback has
paid dividends as Thornton
has practically been the dif
ference during the intrasquad
scrimmages. However,
whether he can be spared
from the fullback spot de
pends upon how some of the
newcomers develop and
whether Noel Martin's twice
operated knee responds dur
ing the summer.
George Haney was switched
from guard U center. The
East Point, Georgia, 225
pounder was not unfamiliar
with the pivot duties as he
had played this position in
high school.
