The Daily Nebraskan
Wednesday, Dec. 1, 1965
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
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?

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
was also voted All-America
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
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.
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."
