South Dakota State Mentor Confident-
By Sports Editor
Mick Rood
Dennis Claridge and John
Kirby will lead the Nebraska
Cornhuskers against South
Dakota State this Saturday at
the Coliseum in the Scarlet's
1963 opening game.
Claridge, Nebraska's
All-America quarterback
candidate, and Kirby, veteran
left guard, have been select
ed Husker co-captains for this
season. Claridge led the Husk
ers to their finest record since
1905 last year and won nu
merous post-season laurels.
The 6-3, 220-pound triple
threater was named All Eight,
Big Eight Playerand Back of
the Year by United Press In
ternational, and was drafted
number three by the NFL
Green Bay Packers and num
ber one by the AFL Oakland
Raiders in the pro "red shirt"
Kirby, a David City, Ne
braska product, was a main
stay on the 1962 alternate unit.
The fastest guard on the
squad, Kirby is a fine defen
sive player and turned in out
standing pass defense last
season. It was his deflection
of a Johnny' Roland pass
last year against Missouri
that enabled Noel Martin to
Intercept and run 88 yards for
the first Nebraska touchdown
against Missouri since 1957.
Other Husker stalwarts
pacing the team this year will
be Bob Brown, Willie Ross,
Kent McCloughan, and Lloyd
Voss. Brown, on virtually ev
eryone's All-A m e i c a list,
will team up with right tackle
Lloyd Voss who seems headed
for All-Conference htnors.
Ross, the sparkplug behind
Nebraska's Gotham Bowl vic
tory last year, returns as the
leading Husker rusher. Mc
Cloughan is a versatile junior
halfback who is as well known
for his defensive talent as for
his speed with the ball.
South Dakota State's camp
voiced a quiet confidence be
fore their clash with the heav
ily favored Cornhuskers.
State's Coach Ralph Ginn
says he won't let Nebraska's
national prominence push his
Jackrabbits into "giving up
ahead of time."
The Brookings menator will
send the Jackrabbits against
the Scarlet in Lincoln for Sat
urday's Nebraska inaugural.
Ginn's team already has a 9
to 6 squeaker over Montana
State under their belt, but
the coach voiced an aware
ness of Saturday's assignment.
Montana State proved a
stubborn road block for Coach
Ginn's club last Saturday
night. It took a 45-yard aerial
connection from quarterback
Doug Peterson to end Darrel
Tramp in the fourth period
p 1 u s a fumble recovery by
Terry Gukeisen on the Jack's
five-yard line moments later
to edge the Montana team.
Sophomore end Ed Maras
and halfback Wayne Rasmus
sen were singled out for
Ginn's praise. Both contribut
ed key blocks to State's scor
ing pass and Rasmussen
snared two passes to thwart
Montana scoring drives.
Right half Rasmussen will
handle the Jack's punting as
well as serving the visitor's
rushing and passing attacks.
The 172-pound speedster av
eraged 5.1 yards a try last
year and was stopped for only
one loss in 81 attempts.
South Dakota State is ex
pected to give State College
of Iowa a tussle in their North
Central Conference rivalry for
the top spot. Main worries for
State are lack of over-all
depth and the loss of John
Stone, the Jackrabbit's chief
defensive specialist and the
nation's leading field goal
kicker 1 ast year.
Meanwhile, Husker Coach
Bob Devaney is not without

Stadium Has New
Sound and Sight
Prior to the opening Hckoff
in tne webrasF a-South Dakota
State game, September 21,
the new Memorial Stadium
scoreboard will be dedicated
in a brief ceremony.
Ted Connor, president of
the Alumni N Club, who do
nated the new addition, will
officially present it to the
Cornhuskers. At halftime. fol
lowing the 1963 debut of the
Cornhusker marching band, a
brief ceremony will honor
waiter Renter and John Bent
ley, longtime NU athletic de
partment figures who have
retired this past summer.
A new scoreboard isn't the
only feature at Memorial
Stadium that will make 1963
football season more pleasant
for fans at Nebraska games.
In the past, it has been al
most impossible to under
stand the public address re
ports from Ralph Beechner,
veteran Lincoln coach and
athletic administrator, be
cause of a faulty sound sys
tem. An improved sound system
featuring the latest in multi
cellular speakers is being in
stalled on the face of the
Field House. Three new
speakers with 18 trumpets
each will replace the five
present speakers, installed in
The new speakers are the
same type used in military
air base installations which
have a high noise level. They
are especially designed for
the outside projection of
sound over a wide angle area.
A more powerful amplifier
is also part of the installa
tion which will cost $2,750 to
be paid for from Athletic De
partment gate receipts.

Whle Nebraska ."tunes up" for the Big Eight race
Saturday against South Dakota State, other conference
schools face an impressive group of nationally ranked
The Cornhuskers continue to be burdened by. a weak
opener as the school attempts to gain national recogni
tion. As i n the past two years the Scarlet will be par
tially sized up on their showing against an undermanned
ball club.
The weak scheduling of past athletic directors has
been a negative factor in Husker fortunes both in 1961
and 1962. Attitudes that can develop in the minds of team
members and fans like perhaps hurt these recent teams
after they walked all over small schools in first games
In 1961, after pummeling North Dakota, the Huskers
were upset by two conference foes, Oklahoma State and
Colorado, and tied by Arizona. In 1962, after "defeating"
South Dakota University, the squad sailed through lesser
opponents (except perhaps Michigan) and then received
a rude shock against Missouri on national television.
This is not to belittle the South Dakota State team
which should finish high in their own North Central Con
ference, but Nebraska cannot be judged with any assured
ness until they face Minnesota's Gophers in Minneapolis.
In 1965, the soft spot disappears when the home forces
will begin a series with Texas Christian,
While Nebraska plays South Dakota State, Iowa State
will meet California; Colorado goes against Southern
Cal.; Missouri faces Northwestern; Oklahoma State visits
Arkansas, Oklahoma entertains Clemson and Kansas
State plays Brigham Young.
Observers who fear lack of depth will keep Nebraska
from a superior season might be losing the idea as re
serves have been showing well in, fall practice. The big
bugaboo is the possible injury of Dennis Claridge al
though the big Minnesota native would be sorely missed
soph Fred Duda appear sto be a passer and runner in
his own right.
Lack of lettermen at the ends has been another wor
ry. Behind regulars Larry Tomlinson and Dick Callahan
however Preston Love Chuck Doepke and Tony Jeter
continue to impress coaches with their improvement.
White shirted tackles Bob Jones and Monte Kiffin look
tougher and faster than a year ago.
Only a recent injury mars the Husker depth picture.
Don McDermott playing behind Bob Brown was lost last
week and lack of capable replacements from below has
some wondering.
This year should hold continued Big Eight prominence
on the national scene. Oklahoma, Nebraska, Kansas, and
Missouri again have solid elevens. And this grid season
has been referred to as the "year of the quarterbacks,"
Husker Dennis Claridge being one of them,
Claridge may not achieve the goals some have set
for him, not because he can't but for the simple rea
son that his talents must blend with abilities of ten other
capable athletes. Claridge has indicated this himself in
pre-season interviews. In order that the Huskers win all
members must adapt themselves to one another not
to set records, but to win football games. The team is
pa,bably more aware of this than most fans.
Below is the weekly list of long shots for the expert's
entertainment: Washington over Air Force; Alabama to
beat Georgia; Arkansas over Oklahoma State; California
to edge Iowa State; Oklahoma over Clemson; Southern
Cal in a walk over Colorado; Northwestern with a tough
win over Missouri; LSU over Texas A&M; TCU to be
upset by Kansas; UCLA to tip Pittsburgh; and Texas
easily over Tulane.
