Page 4 The Daily Nebraskan Wednesday, Dec. 1, 1965 SAM'S SALVOS By Bob Samuelson Well, fans, they've done it again. Yes, your wonderful administration has come to the fore and once again taken the lead in asininity. (It had been temporarily garnered by the draft card burners.) What have they done? They have simply made it physi cally impossible for many University students to attend the Orange Bowl game in Miami without a non-credit course in advanced kamikaze on the way back. Got to make those Monday 8:30's you know. This step in the elimination of student participation in the post-season classic was only one in a long march. The first step, the longest one, was the selection of the Miami Bowl in the first place. Nebraska was the most sought after football team in the country by all the bowls, Michigan State and Arkansas being committed to their re spective bowls by a conference contract. Instead of waiting until we had finished our season be fore accepting an assignment you'd have thought we'd have learned a lesson at Norman, Oklahoma last season we com mitted ourselves before the Oklahoma State game, and but for superior manpower and a courageous drive in the last five minutes, almost lost that one. We bowled over (no pun intended) Oklahoma in lackluster fashion to make our per fect season. If we had had bowl incentive, we would have had no scares with either Okie State or the Sooners. So the players chose the Orange Bowl. The official word was that a bowl game is a 'reward for a successful season. In my way of thinking, a Bowl game is a chance to prove to the country that Nebraska's patsy schedule had no bearing on its fine season, and that we do indeed deserve the num ber one status we pretend to. Naturally the players chose the Miami trip over the Dallas trip. In their shoes most of us would have voted the same way. BUT, the players should have been guided in their choice. We had a chance to play Arkansas it would have been one of the dream bowl games of the decade. Un beaten team against unbeaten team a chance to avenge last year's loss. Perhaps more important a reason for the choice of the Cotton Bowl, however, is the fact that the loyal Nebraska fans who so fervently jam-packed Memorial Stadium week after week and flooded red on the Columbia, Missouri campus as well as the other away games would not be able, in the main, to afford the Miami juncket, both in time and money. Whether the football team likes it or not, it has become symbolic of the latent pride ebraskans have long had for their state. Xebraskans live a little higher when the Huskers win, and die a little when they (so seldom) lose. This is to be expected when a state the size of ours has only one state University. But this is water under the bridge, and now the admin istration pours salt into that water by adamantly pronounc ing that school will begin the Monday after new year's Day, Orange Bowl or not. This will mean starting the 1,800-plus mile trip back to Lincoln immediately after the game which is played New Year's evening. I'm glad I'm not an administrator at the University of Nebraska. If there is one personal injury accident or death of a University student on the wav back from Miami, the injury or death will be THEIR RESPONSIBILITY. Feel a little uncomfortable, gentlemen? Sports Editors Note: The opinion expressed in this column does not necessarily express the views and opinions of the Daily Nebraskan. Barnes, White All-America Nebraska's Walt Barnes and Freeman White have been named to the 1965 Look Mag azine All-America team. The 22-m a n All-America squad, picked by the Football Writers Association of America, is an nounced in the current issue of Look. Loos said White "is one rea son why Coach Devaney's Cornhuskers stand near the top of, the football r at i n g heap." Look lauded Walt Barnes' performance against Missouri, where he blocked a punt and keyed the line play that shut out the Tigers the final three quarters. White's pass-catching rec ords took back seat to Tulsa's Howard Twilley, All- American who let the nation in pass receptions. Missouri's Johnny Roland was also voted All-America honors. In announcing their All America selections, Look af firmed, "If the 22 players work out to two complete units nearly covering offense, and defense, the result is pure accident. For the f o o t b a 1 1 writers honor only the 22 best players; they do not select an all-star squad or run a pro football draft." Husker end Freeman White was o n e of o n 1 y two unan imous choices on the 1965 All Big Eight football team named by the Associated Press. White shared the dis tinction with Johnny Roland, Missouri back. Walt Barnes, defensive tackle for Nebraska, missed unanimous selection by only two of 85 ballots. ' Other Nebraska gridders picked for the offensive squad are Tony Jeter, 227-pound end; tackle Dennis Carlson, 229; La Verne Allers, 209 at guard and Frank Solich, 158-pound back. Nebraskans picked for the defensive squad are Barnes; Mike Kennedy, linebacker at 219 and Larry Wachholtz, 162 pound back. Those Huskers receiving mention for second team of fense are backs Fred Duda and "arry Wilson. Bill Johnson, defensive back, was the only player from Nebraska named to the second team defensive squad. Eddie Crowder of Colorado was voted Coach of the Year. Iowa State's Clay Stapleton was named second and Corn husker Coach Bob Devaney was picked number three. lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllIlllllllllllllllllllllllllllllilMIII Ticket Sales Start Students may place their orders for Orange Bowl tick ets Thursday, Friday and Monday, according to ticket director Jim Pittenger. Pittenger noted that tickets are $6.50 and $5.00 for end zone seats. "Unlike the Cotton Bowl," Pittenger said, "the Orange Bowl does not make a student rate on tickets." The ticket director said that there should be enough tickets available to fill the requests and to avoid duplication stu dents must be present in per son and present their identifi cation card with the ticket re quest. "The most tickets that we will sell together is six," Pit tenger said. "So, if students want to sit together they must place their orders together." liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiii 421 - mm mm. 1 , m iKv&. 7, i tut w Cagers Meet Badgers A f ' I f .1114 a- - v Nebraska opens its 1965-66 basketball season Wednesday night at Madison, Wis., tak ing on the homestanding Wis consin Badgers.

The individual record book was rewritten by Freeman White, whose pass catching magic wrote him in the record book seven times. White holds school records for most passes caught during a game, season and career. He also holds the most pass reception yardage for a game, season and career and if this isn't enough he owns the longest pass-run mark for a touch down, a 95 yarder from Fred Duda during the Colorado game.
