From the Novice Corner ...
By TERRY ANDERSON
The world of sports certainly can be topsy turvy at
times. The only stable thing around the Big Eight these
days seems to be here at Nebraska. The track team "keeps
winning and the basketball squad keeps losing, much to
the chagrin of Husker sports fans.
Last week, there was Colorado sitting prettily on top of
the Conference with no one really pressing them for the
title, although there were several coaches who thought dif
ferently about that . . -. Then on blue Monday for the Buf
faloes and big Bob Carey for Missouri and together they
upset the applecart, defeating the CU Buffs, 60-5J.
And down tumbled the Buffalo dynasty to take up a
place on the fourth rung of the ladder. The leaders were re
placed by Oklahoma State with a 7-2 record, followed by
Kansas State, 7-2, and Iowa State, 8-3.
With four games remaining for most of the teams in
the conference, it looks as if the title race will be a
scramble from here on out. Any one of these top four
teams could take the title.
Iowa State has probably as rough a schedule left as
any of them. They must travel to Kansas
State and Colorado on a road trip this
weekend; then they entertain Kansas State
at home on March 4. But the Wildcats and
the Buffaloes have not lost on their home
court in many years so it does not look
too bright for Cyclone title hopes.
Colorado is having many troubles it
self. Ken Charlton has two lame knees and
his scoring has not been up to par these
last two weeks and it has hurt CU badly
(Witness three defeats on the road since Anderson
Charlton first acquired his injury.)
Colorado has one advantage in finishing out the season.
They play the rest of their games, with the exception of
the K-State game, on their home court. At home they will
face Oklahoma State who beat them at Stillwater; Iowa
State who beat them at Ames; and Nebraska whom they
trounced at Lincoln last semester.
Oklahoma State has a bad situation to face for the rest
of the race. They must, with the exception of K-State play
their games on the road. On the road they will face Ne
braska, Colorado, Oklahoma, and Kansas. This is not the
easiest thing to do to win on the road when the pressure
Kansas State has an uphill battle to hoe before they
can bring home the Big Eight championship for a year.
They have six games to play, four at home and two on
the road. On the road they must face two of the top con
tenders in Oklahoma State and Iowa State while at home
they must face the other contenders Iowa State and Colo
radoas well as Oklahoma arid Kansas.
Nebraska who usually pulls one or two upsets out of
the fire every year can do no more than play the role
of the spoiler as they are very firmly entrenched in the
Big Eight cellar and hopes are dim for getting off of that
Nebraska, if upsets are to come this season, has a
chance to pull a couple of dandies out of the race in the
form of Colorado and Oklahoma State. They will travel to
Boulder March for a third encounter with the Bufffs. On
the two previous encounters the Huskers fell, 47-59 and
Before they head out to Boulder though, they will en
counter the league leader on their home court this Monday
in Lincoln. The Cowboys, using ball control tactics beat
the Huskers last Monday, 51-41 at Stillwater.
In the meantime it seems that the Huskers best chance
to enter the win column for the first time and perhaps
give the guys a needed shot in the arm will be this
Saturday when they entertain the University of Kansas
Jayhawkers. The Hawkers are one notch above the Huskers
on the Big Eight ladder with a 2-8 record.
The last outing against the Kansan team was at Law
rence on January 19 when the Jayhawks got the best of the
bargain. I'm sure that the Huskers are as tired of losing
as the fans are tired of seeing them lose and it would do
them well to start winning.
The fans would like to see some of that old fire when
they played the part of the spoilers In other years. After
their dismal season thus far (0-9), loyal fans would happily
accept any win now especially If it would be upsets over
CU and Oklahoma State.
While we are on the subject of upsets lei's turn to
swimming for a few minutes. Last weekend the conference
champs, in the person of Oklahoma, traveled to Iowa State
for a dual meet and while there encountered a virtual
Cyclone turned whirlpool
Iowa State upset the Sooners, 50-45. For the last 25
years Big Eight swimming has been dominated by Iowa
State and Oklahoma as no one has held the championship
except them and Iowa State has not won In the last nine
Oklahoma barely beat Nebraska, according to scores
they have posted in years previous. Next weekend Nebraska
travels to Iowa State for a Saturday encounter with the !
Cyclones. When coach Cal Bentz heard of the Iowa State ;
upset, the wheels upstairs began to turn to find a way to
beat Iowa State. If they should beat the Cyclones, the Big .
Eight carnival to be held here could produce a new con- j
ference champ and there could be some amazing results '
But that is another story and another column which i
will be Investigated later on before the Big Eight splash
begins. In the meantime let's hope that the Husker cage
squad can produce a couple of upsets and really upset
the holocaust that is now predominating conference faction
on the maples.

Mike Nissen, the pride of
Nebraska wrestling, has been
named the Daily Nebraskan's
''Star of the Week" after
pinning his final home op
ponent to continue his "unde
feated varsity dual record.
Nissen, a senior from Ma
son City, Iowa, pinned Mike
Sherrill of South Dakota
State in his last Appearance
at the Coliseum last Thurs
day. The victory not only per
petuated his winning skein,
but also' pushed the 123 pound

Last year, Mike sained
second place laurels in the
Big Eight Tournament and
third place in the NCAA trials.
Masaki Hatta defeated Nis

Oklahoma State offers an
other threat to Nissen's su
premacy this year in tbe
form of Mark McCracken.
McCracken decisioned the Ne

but Nissen is confident he can
defeat the klahoman this
When asked about what is
essential to win in -wrestling,
Mike commented, '"you must
have desire to win; desire
for yours and the team's
chances of victory . "
"Wrestling is more of a
team sport than most people
realize, he continued. Even
though you are out on the mat
as an individual, you should
always try to win for the
team as well as yourself. In
that way, wrestling involves
just as much "team play" as
football or basketball."
Nissen pointed out that
wrestling can help the athlete
in life by teaching him self-
disciphne. Self-discipline is
the whole sport. Things likeji
cutting weight, learning and
practicing moves, and getting
in shape are all related to
gaining self-discipline," Nis
This week's '"Star1' has
high hopes for Nebraska's
wrestling future. He pointed
out that the freshman team
is one of the best around

ranked Kansas and Kansas
State in order.
Bush said that he had no
definite plans for the immedi
ate future. When asked if he
had other (coaching toffers, he
answered that he had received
many phone 'calls last night
"1 had a chance to coach
the Cincinnati Royals (of the
National Pro (Basketball As
sociation) three or four years
ago hut I turned it down. I
