Big Eight Grid Scene
Champion Huskers Begin Al NCAA
Nebraska's KppSp T.o.lvi
"We do have a number of problems to solve this
spring, but we are looking forward to having a good
team again in 1966."
So says Husker football coach Bob Devaney as he
anticipates the beginning of spring workouts this Friday,
weather permitting.
The Huskers will have 34 lettermen returning from
the 1965 team that went undefeated, won a third straight
Big 8 title and played Alabama in the Orange Bowl.
Starters Return
Nebraska will have 23 of the 32 members of the unit
which suited up for the Orange Bowl game with Alabama
back in 1966, including starters: Guard LaVerne Allers,
Center Kelly Peterson, Guard Jim Osberg, Halfback Ron
Kirkiand, Halfback Harry Wilson, and Quarterback Bob
Churchich, who did not start, but played most of the game
and set an Orange Bowl touchdown pass and point pro
duction record.
The Husker defensive team will have 19 of the 25
members this year that suited up for the bowl battle
with Alabama, including starters: End Len Janik, End
Langston Coleman, Tackle Dick Czap, Middle Guard
Wayne Meylan, Linebacker Lynn Senkbeil, Cornerback
Kaye Carstens, Halfback Marv Mueller and Safety Larry
Waehholtz.
"... We do have some outstanding players return
ing," says Devaney, "and we plan to do everything in
our power to retain our Big 8 title."
The Huskers will have workouts on Mondays, Wednes
days, Fridays and Saturdays except during Easter vaca
tion. Spring practice is scheduled to end May 14, with
the annual intra-squad game.

Tigers Must Replace Lane
Columbia, Mo. Spring practice started March 25 for
the University of Missouri Tigers and will end May 7
with a intra-squad game.
"Our 1965 team capitalized on its senior leadership
ana experience, says uacn Dan Devine, We won t have
that factor going for us this year. However, the Big
Eight conference has as many blue-chip athletes as I've
seen in nine years here. Except for Oklahoma State and
Missouri, everyone returns a starting quarterback."
Missouri must fill 12 of 22 first-team positions with
new men. The Tigers return 18 lettermen, but lost many
three-year regulars among the 14 departed seniors. Sea
soned leadership will be scant, especially in the line and
many positions will be up for grabs. The battle for de
parted Gary Lane's quarterback position is expected to
produce a lively three-way tustie.
Says Devine, "I look for a close conference race,
with Nebraska still in the driver's seat Colorado and
Oklahoma have excellent personnel, and will be tough.
Iowa State's and Kansas' freshman teams looked good
in beating us last fall."
Sooners To Work On Basics
Norman, Okla. Evaluation of personnel will be the
chief aim of Oklahoma's spring football drills starting
April 7, says Coach Jim Mackenzie.
"We want to find out quickly who should be playing
offense and who defense," explains the Sooners' new head
master. "We'll have the boys going both ways the first
three days, scrimmage them the third day, then study
the films and try to decide in what platoon and at what
position each youngster belongs."
Mackenzie plans scrimmages on Wednesday and Satur
day. "We'll go out there and hit," he described it. "We
won't have any contact after our fall season starts so
we have to get physically and mentally tough during the
spring."
The offense and defense run by the Sooners this
spring will be basic compared to next autumn.
"We'll use an I formation with a wide slot this spring,
but not run nearly so many plays as we will this falL
We'll have power plays inside, sweeps outside and only
about half as many passes as we intend to have next
fall."
Defenses employed this spring will include the rover
or monster with very little stunting. "We first have to

learn how to line up and play football without fooling
anybody," Mackenzie puts it.
He said Oklahoma would probably use a multiple I
formation with a split receiver next fall and stunt a great
deal on defense.
Discussing recruiting, the new Sooner chieftain said,
"We have 30 boys signed. We plan to sign 43. We feel
like we've secured some very fine youngsters, but we still
have a long way to go."
Wildcats To Go Both Ways
Manhattan, Kans. Everybody both ways all the way.
That's the rule in Kansas State's spring football practice
which began here Friday (March 25). That is a distinct
switch for the Wildcats, who have used platoons to the
extent of the rulebook the past three seasons.
"In looking back, we feel one of our problems last
season was in our attempt to specialize too much," Coach
Doug Weaver explains. "Injuries, of which we had more
than our share, made us too shallow at spots on both
offense and defense.
"We feel that by using all men two ways this spring
we not only can sort out our best talents, but can also
increase our effective depth."
Weaver promised other experimentation, too, on of
fense, as the Wildcats look for means to add punch to an
attack that netted only 75 yards a game on the ground
last fall.
The Wildcat coach said he couldn't be certain that
he had the answer to K-State's need for a running back,
but pointed to upcoming freshmen and a junior college
transfer as offering hope toward filling that need.
"We count spring drills as a chance for conditioning,
for building squad spirit, for installing new plays and,
this year especially, for the new men of both the squad
and staff to get acquainted," he said.
The Wildcats will work five days a week during the
spring, weather permitting. They plan to skip Friday's
and scrimmage Saturday's, with their spring intra-squad
game climaxing the workouts on April 30.
' In uniform for the drills will be 84 'Cat candidates,
including 19 lettermen returning from last fall. Among
those lettermen are five starters on offense last season,
plus three first-team defensive players. Missing, however,
is Henry Howard, junior halfback who led 1965 rushing
and scoring. He will miss the drills to undergo a knee
operation.
