The Daily Nebraskan
Rood k'johening
By Mick Rood
Sports Editor
A dose of tonic for that well-up pessimism in ail of
you ...
A great, white and omnipotent power will descend up
on our humble land in a few days hence. It will ride in the
cloud of tradition, blown by winds of past glory. If it can
overcome us, Fate will the culprit v . .
Breaks will the one and only factor deciding the game.
If Nebraska loses, it won't be because they lack ability or
' determination. Luck should be the thing that sends one of
the teams to Miami.
On paper, the Sooners have no edge over the Huskers.
Nebraska still leads the Big Eight in four categories, al
though some margins are slim. The widest superiority
falls in the rushing defense category. Scarlet forwards
have held opponents to 34 yards less per game than Okla
homa. The Sooners have the top pass defense, but then
Nebraska has passed only sparingly this year.
Bud Wilkinson's team can brag of a tougher schedule,
but that hasn't seemed to aid them in their conference
showings: Kansas fell only on a bad mistake in the final
minutes; Iowa State lost only after leading 14 to 7 at
the half, but wearing down to superior Sooner depth; and
Missouri lost only on the scoreboard.
In comparison, the Huskers were definitely more im
pressive against the Jayhawks and the Cyclones. The
closest part of Columbia was the score. Nebraska's best
showings were at home. Oklahoma comes to Lincoln.
Injuries will hamper the Sooners as much if not more
than Nebraska. New halfback find Jackie Cowan will prob
ably not even play while Jim Grisham will be considerably
slowed. It seems, though, that the OU line is equal to Ne
braska's. One hears odds of three and half to four points in
favor of the Oklahomans. Ridiculous! The teams are, in
deed, evenly matched. A team's frame of mind may make
the difference. Here again it looks like the teams are at
a stalemate.
Oklahoma has yet to really prove themselves as a
genuine power. Narrow conference escapes and the Tex
as humiliation still grate on Sooner minds. Nebraska
wants a clear-cut claim to the Orange Bowl ticket and
their first undefeated Big Eight record.
And on and on the information goes. With all bias
aside and visions of Miami cleared from my thoughts
It will be interesting to see whether the Huskers try
a new offensive trick or two. Coach Devaney has denied
any such tampering with the potent Scarlet attack. Need
less to say, there are a number of options that could be
run from existing plays that haven't been used.
If the home squad goes down early, watch for a new
play ... a different move. If the offense is tampered with,
the change will not be radical . . . just different enough
to throw Sooner defenders. We'll have to sit back and
Other tough tries: California to nip Stanford; Michigan
State by a Sherm Lewis and that's all over Illinois; Notre
Dame to show spirit over Iowa; Pitt rolling better than
ever past Penn State; TCU rebound over Rice; SMU and
Baylor in a draw; and finally, Missouri by a defensive
hair over Kansas, 20 to 16 plus Oklahoma State over Kan
sas State.

Jim Yates
Center Jim Yates brings good height, a soft shot, and
a 1961-2 letter to Nebraska's basketball camp this year.
The 6-8 senior who hails from Randolph, Iowa, returns
after a year's absence to boost Husker lack of height.
Although he carries just 210 pounds on his tall frame, he
moves with authority under the boards and contributes a
sweeping hook plus a steady jump shot on offense. Coach
Joe Cipriano has lauded the tall Husker's ball handling
for his size.

the 17 championships con
tested to date.
Kansas State has won six
and Kansas five while the Jay
hawks have been runner-up on
six occasions and K-State
twice. Only once, when Mis
souri topped Oklahoma for the
1949 tournament title, has a
Sunflower team failed to make
the finals, and on four occa

in the championship match.
Hair-raising finishes are the
rule, rather than the excep

cided by three points or less,
two of them in overtime

three seconds left in the fourth
overtime to win that one . . .
Winning the Big Eight tourna

shoo-in for the regular season
race. Only eight of 17 teams
have been able to win both.

Lincoln residents and Uni
versity students alike care not
what the oddsmakers say
Nebraska will beat Oklaho
ma Saturday.
Sentiments range from the
frank optimism of Lincoln
meter maid Mrs. D. Danley,
to the calm confidence of Wil
liam C. Harper, Director of
University Services. But no
one thinks their team will
"Sure, I think the boys can
do it," said Mrs. Danley.
When asked about Nebraska's
injured players Dennis Clar
idge, Monte Kiffin, Rudy
Johnson, and Bob Hohn, she
says, "They can win without
Claridge and Johnson, after
all, they're not the whole
Mr. Harper is a little more
"It will be tough no mat
ter what," he comments.
"They can win with an all
out effort, but I don't think
anyone will be taking it
National Bank of Commerce
Vice Presidents L. Alford and
Wilbur H. Baack see a little
risk in the Husker account.
Both say that without Clar
idge and Johnson, a victory
would be hard to get.
"Nebraska hasn't played
their best game yet and this
will have to be just that if
they expect to whip the Soon
ers. Nebraska students - are
quicker with the Husker vic
tory sign. Paul Carr, a sopho
more in business administra
tion says, "Nebraska by six."
"Both teams are sound de
fensively, but I think Nebras
ka will win if they can run
through Oklahoma's line fair
ly well," Carr adds.
"They're either going ta
blitz is like they did last
year or we will pull out a
close one," says Fred Walte
made, a junior in pre-law.
"I rather think we will win
the close one," Waltemade
John Haynes, a car me
chanic, is more philosophical
about his prognostication. Ke
feels Oklahoma will lose un
less the Huskers "lose all
confidence in themselves."
"I personally have a lot of
confidence in them, and their
coach, Bob Devaney," Haynes
Sue Morris, a Lincoln resi
dent for a year, gives Ne
braska her vote. She came
from Michigan and graduated
from Michigan State where
the Spartans are going for a
Big Ten Title this Saturday
against Illinois.
"I'm no expert, but 1 think
you'll win," she said.
