Twelve thousand Cornhust

take on an underdog Buffaio
The ones who make it to

football game.
The Colorado team is fresh
from an upset of Iowa State,
14-7, which is exactly the
same as the margin that Ne
braska accomplished three
weeks ago.
The Buffaloes are a hungry
ballclub, and with the fervor
of their homecoming and
their steady progress they
could give Nebraska a good

That's Basketball?
Those who step in on a basketball practice session at
the right time might mistake it for ballet instruction or a
fencing lesson if someone didn't indicate what was hap
pening. For a new drill, designed to perfect the defensive
stance, benefits artists wearing tights and slippers in
stead of a set of basketball shorts.
All 15 position themselves in a defensive stance and
take just two slow steps in the direction of the signal. With
their arms up the cagers look like little kids steadily ap
proaching the cookie jar, ready to grab and run before
getting nabbed.
Tabbed the Cornhusker Special (sounds like a p u b's
specialty), the fundamental exercise is among several used
by Coaches Joe Cipriano, Glenn Potter and Bob Gates to
prep the Huskers for a Dec. 3 debut. That's about V-k
months from now but with eight (six sophs and two trans
fers) newcomers, Cipriano's trying to instill a little experi
ence before the shooting starts.
More Help
The two transfers Earl Johnson and Ray Amalbert
have been getting the closest look by practice observers.
Both will probably start and Cipriano hopes they hold the
key to eluding the Big Eight's second division.
bscapmg with a 7-18 record (5-9 in the loop for a share
of sixth), last year's Huskers sorely missed a team leader
an important person on fast breaking team. Cipriano be
lieves he has one in Amalbert.
A Bronx lad, Amalbert averaged over 20 points for
New York Community College last season and made All
America at the junior college tournament the year before.
Johnson, who spent his freshmen year at Loyola of
Chicago, spent last season learning Cipriano's system
while waiting to become eligible. A 6-5 husky, Johnson
will play either guard or forward and Cipriano feels he
will give the Huskers a bundle of points and add to the
The Cleveland native came to Nebraska after chats
with Bob Brown, 1963 All-America Husker football guard,
now with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Of course there's the returnees like 6-5 Joel Kortus,
6-3 Grant Simmons, 6-7 Bob Anttilov, 6-8 Al Reiners, 6-5
Jerry Spears and 6-5 Coley Webb. All showed improve
ment last season and can be depended upon.
And there's the sophomores, who gained an 8-0 record
on last year's freshmen team. Fred Hare, three-time all
stater and twice Ail-American at Omaha Tech, led the
frosh with a 19.6 scoring average and will battle for a
starting berth with 6-4 Nate Branch, 6-3 Gary Neibauer,
Simmons and Amalbert.
Soph. Willie Campbell will be in the thick of the start
ing forward scrap. Soph centers Brice Pearson and Charlie
Stone must show improvement before bumping Antulov,
Reiners or Webb, who can play the post or forward.
Heralded Huskers
The NU football team is ranked fifth in the country,
which leads to premature talk of bowls and No. 1 rat
ings. But the meat end of the schedule is just beginning,
starting with Colorado. The Buffaloes cannot be over
looked if comparative scores are considered since they
tripped Iowa State 14-7 last week as did the Huskers three
weeks ago.
Call it NEBRASKA 21, Colorado 6. on the basis of
quarterback Bob Churchich's improved composure under
fire and that defense, which has allowed only 77 rushing
yards a game.

the offense, if not quite as
powerful, is more colorful,
thanks to Frank Solich and
Harry Wilson, and the much
improved Kent McCloughan.
The improvement of the
play at the ends, and at long
last, ends that can catch a
football, have given Nebras
ka a formidable passing at
tack. Colorado has a season re
cord of 1-4, but it is interest
ing to note that they have
out-downed every team they
have played.
The first-down list runs like
this: Colorado 16 USC 15,
Colorado 14-Oregon State 11;
Colorado 18-Kansas State 10,
Colorado 19-Oklahoma State
7; Colorado 16-Iowa State 10.
This would seem to point to
two things out of necessity.
One, that Colorado has a fine
offense but no scoring punch,
and two, that Colorado's de
fense gives up yardage in
large chunks, and is vulner
able to the long gainer.
Individually, Colorado is led
by excellent centers, Larry
Ferraro and Steve Sidweli.
Sidwell has gained the starl
ing position from Ferraro. an1

'Dear Sir
About four weeks ago, a letter came across my desk ad

"Dear Sir;" it began.
It was from Wayne Bowers, who is the sports editor of
the Daily O'Collegian at Oklahoma State. They play football
down there in case you haven't heard.
He was asking all the sports scribes to predict the
outcome of the Big Eight championship race. Smugly, I
filled out the enclosed card and mailed it back to him.
Now, four weeks later, with the poll in my hand, I am
amazed, pleased and astounded at the poll, the memory
