These are the final scores
for flag football this fall.
Because of the lack of play
ing time that the early hours
impose, Saturday was the
only time left to play games.
There are more than twenty-five
games left to play in
the tournament. Because of
the weather, and the fact that
intramural basketball begins
today, the remainder of the
games have been postponed
The teams and schedules
bave been frozen, but the
teams eventually will finish
their games, and a champion
will be crowned.
With one game to go, the
Cornhuskers have apparently
sewn up five of the team sta
tistical listings and have an
outside chance at capturing
- Nebraska, who now owns a
piece of the Big Eight Cham
pionship, is behind only in
pass defense where Colorado
owns a 67.1 yard average to
the Huskers 70.5.
This means that Nebraska
will have to hold Oklahoma to
at least 31 fewer yards
through the air than Colora
do budgets Air Force this
week to gain all six titles.
Nebraska's lead in the oth
er five appear to be insur
mountable, ranging in aver
ages from 35 in passing of
fense 118.9 to 83.6 for Mis
sourito 71 in total offense
361 to 289.8 for Oklahoma
and 70.4 in total defense
152.4 to 222.0 for Missouri.
Nebraska has been the na
tion's leader in total defense
the past two years.
Comfortable though are the
leads in rushing 242.1 to Ok
lahoma's 2C6.2 where the
Cornhuskers are running a
little behind last year's division-leading
pace, and rush
ing defense SI. 9 to Oklaho
ma's 133.7 where Nebraska
is 18 yards ahead of last
year's average of 99.9, which
was best in the league.
Though lagging behind last
year's average in rushing, the
Nebraskans, with some 220
more passing yards this year
than all last year, need only
225 yards in the season's fin
ale against Oklahoma to sur
pass their 1963 total-offense
output of 3,474
In the individual statistics
Kent McCloughan of Nebras
ka, with a pair of touchdowns
against Oklahoma State, has
virtually cinched the scoring
title with 74 points. With a
touchdown in his last game,
McCloughan will have scored
more points than any B i g
Eight footballer since Tommy
McDonald and C 1 e n t o n
Thomas broke the 100 barrier
for Oklahoma in 1956.
Missouri's Gary Lane, try
ing for a sweep in passing
and total offense for the sec
ond year, has a comfortable
lead in total offense 1,109
to 893 for Oklahoma State's
Glenn Baxter but trails Ne
braska's Bob Churchich in
passing, 743-719. Both Church
ich and Lane have one game
left. Baxter, a threat in the
passing race, also, has two.
His per-game average is only
two-tenths of a yard behind
Gale Sayers of Kansas,
shooting for an unprecedent
ed third straight rushing ti
tle, is tied for the lead this
week with Oklahoma's J i m
Grisham, with 614 yards each.
However, Sayers has only
one game left, while Grisham,
who has put on a tremendous
second-half spurt, has two
Grisham has gained 490
yards in his last five games
to take over third in the career-rushing
standings of the
Conference with 2,293 yards
and become the most prolif
ic rusher in Oklahoma his
tory. Sayers has been able to
beat the defense for 264 in a
similar number of outings.
The big difference between
the pair has come in the last
two games. Sayers has got
ten only 51, including 24
against Colorado Saturday.
Grisham has gained 217121
against Iowa State and 96
Still very much in the rush
ing race is Oklahoma State's
Walt Garrison, who has 583
yards with two games left,
thanks to a 112-yard burst
Saturday against Nebraska.
That 112 total is more than
six of the teams have been
able to muster against the
tough Cornhusker defensive

Sully Predicts Hard-f ought

George Sullivan foresees a repeat Big
Eight championship, a hard-earned Cot
ton Bowl victory, and a generous helping
of national prestige ahead for Nebraska's
And this, coming from George Sulli
van (better known as Sully), is not just
Monday shop-talk. Currently head physi
cal therapist for the University of Ne
braska and chairman of the Licensing
Board for Therapists in the State of Ne
braska, he has been associated with the
game of football and athletics in general
nearly all his life.
Graduating from Loup City, Nebr., he
played starting tackle for the Cornhusk
ers during the 1947-48 campaigns. Before
returning to the University for good in
1953, Sully was trainer for the Lincoln A's,
the now-defunct farm club for the Phila
delphia Athletics baseball organization.
As a trainer and therapist, he has
been accorded many tributes to his skill
and respect in his field. He was on the
staffs of the third and fourth Pan-American
Games, held in Chicago and Brazil,
and was on the sidelines during the college-pro
Challenge Bowl football game in
Corpus Christi in 1962, during which he
handled such players as Nebraska's Thun
"This is unquestionably the finest
group of boys I have seen here," he said
of the 1964 version of the Scarlet and

team, he feels, as do several team mem

"There should be a national ban on
bowl bids until the regular season is com
pleted", he said. "There is enough pres
sure on these boys already with what is
riding on this last game. The bowl bid
seems to have taken all the edge off the
Oklahoma game this week. We are kind
of backing into the Cotton Bowl."
Sully thinks that the Sooners will still
be the toughest team on the schedule,
despite having failed to live up to pre
"With the undefeated season, it has
been just like a final exam every week for
the team." Analyzing the Cornhusker suc
cess, he said, "student spirit has had a lot
to do with it. It is now 'our' team, instead
of the 'Huskers'. Also it has helped more
than most people know the way the fans
have turned out in red colors. In Colo
rado, the bright red in the stands almost
drowned out the Buff's homecoming at

Nebraska to play football now,,' he said.
"And these bowl games will help to con

At Nebraska the responsibi
lity for selling these programs
is assumed by the "N" Club.
They station themselves at
strategic avenues to the stadi
um and offer the programs
to all passers-by.
The concessionaire must be
tactful, pleasant and most
important of all be able to
project his personality into an
advertisement. This advertise
ment is usually in the form
of a slogan or sales pitch.
To such statements as "pro
grams only one quarter", or,
"get your program complete
with a picture of Bob Devan-
ey", there are various reac
tions. First there are the people
who, in the spirit of the ex
citement, stop and buy a pro
gram. But the interesting phe
nomenon is the people who
refuse to buy a program and
the way they react to t h e
There is the person who acts
as if he didn't hear while pre
tending to see some object fly
There is the person who
asks the price and then walks
off aghast at the high cost.
The heighth of reaction is
the person who doesn't know
what to do so he casually
flashes a Humphrey Bogart
type smile and gives a nega
tive nod of his head.
Last year it was different. The President had been
assassinated and the players entered the stadium only
after late meetings and a tormented decision to play the
game. There was a double pressure on Nebraska and
Oklahoma. A pressure that did not have to be.
Perhaps it was similar to comic relief at that game.
A rather sorrowful crowd, burdened by a tragedy, could
muster only muffled cheers until Duncan Drums field
goal put the Huskers ahead. Then a crashing roar
burst through the campus area and for a moment at least,
a pain was eased, a dreamily-remembered horror was
hopefully forgotten. But just for a moment.
Last year, Husker fans and team had their relief.
This year, it may be Oklahoma's turn under somewhat
different conditions. The game can be played without a
pretense of justification, without that extra pressure.
The game will be played under some circumstances
that would indicate an Oklahoma victory. 1) Oklahoma
can greet the Huskers in that nasty Norman pit. 2) The
Cotton-Bowl-bound Nebraskans still have something to
loose and Oklahoma would like to take it from them
that undefeated season. 3) The memory of that bad de
feat may bring out the Sooner potential so absent all year.
In sort. Nebraska won't have so much fun.
On the other hand, Coach Bob Devaney has finally
developed the momentum he has always talked about.
The Huskers have the backs, even the line to beat the
Sooners. Last year we weren't sure, this year we are.
Most of them are unaware of what it was like to fear
Oklahoma and most of Nebraska's team are strictly part
of the new Devaney system of winning. I discuss attitudes,
because attidude will win Saturday's game. Abilities are
about equal, so who wants to win the most?
A fourth quarter touchdown will be needed after a
determined Sooner first half. Husker's running attack
will have to be successful, but it should be a Bob Church
ich pass that wins the game. I see it, NEBRASKA 20,
