Big Eight Spotlight . .
Oklahoma Watches Quarterback, End
Strength As Spring Drills Progress
Working without captains,
Oklahoma s Big Eight foot
ball runners-up started spring
practice March 9.
"We won't elect captains
this spring," Coach G o m e r
Jones said. "We've discovered
that captains sometimes be
come so involved 'mothering'
the squad while serving as
contacts between players and
coaches that they lose their
effectiveness as players. Af
ter the season, our squad will
elect its captain or captains."
Jones said that Sooner cap
tains would be appointed for
each game this fall. Ola'
homa opens at Pittsburgh
Sept. 25, then meets Navy
here Oct. 2 and Texas at Dal
las Oct. 9.
Oklahoma drew eight full
teams and a few more for its
first drill. Practices will be
held Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday and Saturday of
each week.
"We'll divide each day's
workout into offensive and
defensive drills so everybody
can go both ways the first
two week s," Jones said.
"Then we'll rest a week dur
ing the spring holiday. When
the squad returns, we'll di
vide it into platoons, placing
each boy on the platoon
where we think he'll do the
most good."
Seeking to improve its for
ward passing, Oklahoma will
start this spring with a wing
T formation involving a split
end, thus providing two de
tached men to throw to in
stead of the one used most of
last fall, Jones said.
Jones will have assistants
Jay O'Nekl, Drake Keith,
Jerry Thompson, Bob Cornell,
Carl Allison, Joe Rector, Dick
Heatly and Brewster Hobby
helping, also student coaches
Wayne Lee, Dennis Ward,
Jimmy Payne, Larry Vermil

The first day alignment of
positions, favoring players
with any type of varsity ex
perience, will no doubt
change rapidly as members of
last year's all-victorious fresh
man team challenge vigorous
ly. Despite their victories ov
er Tulsa and Oklahoma State.
the Boomers lacked top-flight
"We especially need
tackles, ends and quarter
backs," Jones pointed out.
The halfback situation is also
insecure with graduation of
Lance Rentzel, crack sweep-er-bucker-receiver
of last
year and the switch of Lar
ry Brown to fullback.

this afternoon at Beatrice
against the South Dakota State
Coach Tony Sharpe's forces
are scheduled to take the field
at Riverside Park around 1:30
p.m. for the double-header.
Sharpe Is going with an ex

baseman Joe Gaughan bats
second, followed by catcher
Larry Bornschlegl.
Number four man is right
fielder Dennis Gemar. Gemar

Hitting seventh will be first
sacker Rich Brenning. Curt
Johnson will be in right field
and bat eighth.
Sophomore Gary Neibauer
will hurl the first seven in
nings. The fast-balling rookie
right-hander figures promi
nentely in Sharpe's pitching
rotation, and may be able to
move right in now that bad
weather has helped compen
sate for his late reporting due
to basketball duty.

With the cooperation of the
weather, NU will return to
Lincoln on Saturday to play
the Coyotes in another twin
bill. If conditions on the cam
pus field are not conductive
to play on Saturday, the teams
probably will remain in Beat
rice. Coach Sharpe is hoping for
clear weather at the Lincoln
site in order that his team
can put in much needed game
action in preparation for next
weekend's Eig Eight opener
in Lincoln with the University
of Missouri.
The Missouri team could
provide Husker fans with one
of the most exciting players
in the conference.
Ray Thorpe, the first Negro
member of a Tiger baseball
team, is a speedy 5'9" out
fielder who halfbacks on the
football team.
In last week's series with
Texas Tech, Thorpe hit for the
cycle a single, double, triple
and homer during a 26-3 Mis
souri romp.
