Busy Weekend Adds to NU Footha
By Dave Wohlfarth
The tension continued to
mount in the Nebraska foot
ball situation over the week
end as the Huskers lost their
fourth straight game and ru
mors, continued to circulate
concerning a new athletic di
rector. Chancellor Clifford Hardin
said Saturday that no formal
action has been taken by the
Board of Regents in finding a
replacement for the long va
cated AD post (Bill Orwig left
April 1), but "we will be do
ing "something before long."
The Job will probably be
only the athletic director's
position, not a combined AD
and football coach as had
been speculated. Head foot
ball coach Bill Jennings', who
has come nnder some criticsm
lately, present contract ex
pires in February.
Duffy Daugherty, Michi
gan State football coach, was
the latest name mentioned in
the Nebraska situation but
Hardin said the Daugherty is
' not in the picture.
Jennings Has Plenty
Of Praise for KU's Hadl
'Kansas is undoubtedly the
best football team we, have
played," v declared Nebraska
coach Bill Jennings after the
Huskers' 28-6 loss to the Jay
hawks. J
"They've got a world of
quickness," Jennings c o n
tinued. 1Their line quickness,
plus (Ken) Coleman, (Curtis)
McClinton, and (John) Hadl
what a combination!"
When asked about specific
quickness of the Kansas team,
Jennings singled out All-Amer-ican
quarterback Hadl. "You
. just can't get your hands on
him. We tried everything; we
tried to rush him and we tried
to wait for him. He can run
to the left and turn and throw
to the right, which is really
something," he commented.
"He makes that option play
so tough. We were right on
top of him many times but
we just couldn't reach him."
Jennings also praised Kan
sas fullback Coleman.
Questioned about playing
two quarterbacks at the same
' time, the Husker coach stated
that the purpose was to give
Bill Thornton a rest. At one
stage of the game, Ron Meade
was playing quarterback and
Dennis Claridge was playing
left halfback. Claridge quick
kicked from this position.
Other Jennings Observations
"We were moving the ball
pretty well in the first quar
ter, but you can't pass against
that wind."
"Claridge ran more today
because he had the opportu
nity. He'n improving all the
"time, -Jennings said.
"We were watching him all
the ftime," said Jennings
concerning the Kansas player
who was allegedly giving
signals to the team from the
sidelines. "As a matter of
fact, Tve were trying to pick
up their signals."
. "Boy, that McClinton, we
"never could bring him down
the first time we hit him,"
Jennings concluded.
Other Husker Comments
"The backs are what make
that team. You hit them and
they just keep goln'," said
Husker fullback Bill Corn
stock. Specifically, he praised
Jayhawkers Hadl and McClin
ton. Quarterback Claridge
stated, "They were good, bill
we made too many little
mistakes. They have a more
varied attack than Missouri
does. The temperature didn't
bother us, it wasn't bad once
we got started."
"I've never played against
anyone that moved that fast,"
said Thornton about Hadl.
"They are not as tough as
Missouri, though," he added.
'Losing Carries Over"
"We are a good young
team," but this losing carries
over, particularly with the
younger players,'" Thornton
added. We have got to get the
winning spirit, and win three
or four games in a row, then
we would be over the hump
and really rolling."
"I'm looking forward to
playing against Hoppmati next
week," Thornton said concern
ing Iowa State's tailback,
Dave H o p p m a n. ''We've
played against each other
since we were freshman and
there is a kind of rivalry
between us."
"The coaches had us up for
the game, our offense just
didn't move the ball right,"
said halfback Willie Ross.
Ross, who was involved in a
Kansas pass interference pen
alty, explained," he was
tackling me everytime I
started to get behind him, and
the ref finally called it."
Mitchell Satisfied
Jack Mitchell, Kansas head
coach, was very satisfied with
his players performance Sat
urday, although the same sat
isfaction didn't extend to one
of the referees who called a
15-yard penalty on him for
coaching from the bench.
Mitchell explained that the
signals were not to his quar
terback, but to his spotters
in the press box, giving them,
for instance, the spacing of
Nebraska's defense, which is
impossible to see from up so
high. His dissaproval of the
call was of a more humorus
nature after the game when
the victory was final.
Mitchell believed that Ne
braska's greatest fault is their
inexperience. "You don't re
act as good when you're
young," said Mitchell. Coach
Mitchell believed that Nebras
ka was a well -coached team
and when the experience was
acquired they are going to be
Right lialfback McClinton
thought Kansas played one of
their better games Saturday.
He stated their strategy was
to give Nebraska the flat
passes but be sure not to let
them have the long ones. He
summed up the game as a
good, hard football game.
In the conversations among
the linemen, the speed of
Thunder Thornton was always
mentioned. ,He was a little
faster than expected, the KU
linemen said.
Other names mentioned in
connection with the NU job
have been Ray Eliot, assist
ant athletic director at Illi
nois; Jack Curtice, football
coach at Stanford; Virgil Yel
kin, athletic director at Oma
ha University; George Sauer,
former coach and director at

downs, the Jayhawks had

play from Hadl to halfback
Rodger McFarland.
It was at this point that
the Huskers took to the air.

completed a 14-yard pass to
end Dick McDaniel to the
Husker 48 then three plays
