The Daily Nebraskan
Where the
By Larry Eckholt
The Nebraska football factory has released three pro
ducts this year that Comhusker consumers aren't buying
too well. In fact, "Stadium Quarterbacks", the recognized
leader in footbi.ll know-how, has refused to give Nebraska
its Seal of Approval this year.
Not only that, the press has made Nebraska its sacri
ficial victim, pointing to Nebraska's squeaky victory over
Iowa State Saturday as the demise of the Devaney Dy
nasty. True, the Cornhuskers have looked rusty lately, es
pially when fumbles have halted good drives and penalties
have stopped Nebraska's momentum.
Somewhere, and I'm sure that no one is more anxious
to find where than Bob Devaney, the Huskers have failed
to pull themselves together. While showing signs of for
mer brillancy, Big Red has turned a little pink.
However, this brings us to the question of the week:
What team in the South last season lost their first two
games, rallied to win the Southeastern conference cham
pionship and then upset Nebraska in the Orange Bowl to
win the mythical National Championship? Alabama? Yup!
At this time last season millions thought that Bear
Bryant had lost the magic touch that made him one of
football's most famous coaches. But the Crimson Tide did
not ebb.
Any similarity between Alabama's story last year and
Nebraska's this year loses its value when people remind
themselves that Nebraska hasn't lost any games yet. If
people are worried about narrow wins at least they should
be thankful for the win.
Once again if we look to last year as an example
it'll be easier to see how public reaction is.
Nebraska was picked by most of the pre-season polls
to win the national title. Some picked the Huskers to go
undefeated throughout the season, although some thought
Missouri would and could beat us. Yet, they picked us
Number One.
Nebraska beat everyone they were supposed to and
by the prescribed amount of points. So the favorite was
in the running. Then came the darkhorses and the na
tional football writers love them. Even though Nebraska
did everything that was asked of them, it did not satisfy
"those who decide". It was natural that Nebraska would
lose its powerful momentum near the end of the season.
Frankly, the Cornhuskers don't have much momentum
to lose right now. But I am sure that none of the boys
playing for the University of Nebraska have lost the pride
that is associated with Comhusker football. All they need
is one good game and I think the Huskers will be un
beatable. It was obvious that it wouldn't come at Iowa State
on Saturday. I went to Iowa State for one ' year and I
remember games where people would start to leave at
the half in disgust. ISU doesn't have much support
(which is clear when its stadium is compared to the rest
in the Big Eight).
But Saturday a record crowd (partly because 4,000 Ne
braskans were there) turned out to watch the Number
Six team in the nation play a 0-2 flop. Somewhere Iowa
State found that hidden spark that Nebraska needs to find
and put together a good game. Although they lost they
won a "moral victory" in the opinion of others.
Playing Iowa State at Ames has been rough for the
Huskers in the past. The 1964 Huskers barely beat the
Cyclones by a score of 14-7. Other Nebraska-Iowa State
scores have been: 1962, 36-22; 1960, 7-10; 1958, 7-6; 1956,
9-7. (All games at Ames.)
So even though the Huskers didn't come out smel
ling like a rose I don't think people need to hide in shame.
Michigan, a rated team, lost Saturday. Georgia Tech won
by one point. Colorado had a hard time with Kansas State.
It's all part of the game.

Wilson's Scamper Beats
Upset-Minded Cyclones
By Bob Flasnlck
Sports Editor
There wasn't much of
that old "football fever" at
Iowa State Saturday, any
way not until well into the
second quarter of the game.
The Cyclones, or "Big
Red" as they are known in
and around Ames, were
still reeling from one-sided
losses to Wisconsin and
Oklahoma and there was
little to indicate that it
would take a 37-yard touch
down run by Nebraska's
Harry Wilson with four
minutes left in the game to
give Nebraska a 12-6 vic
tory. The signs that disgruntled
fans like to make when
things aren't going too well
for the team were quite vis
ible. One said "Draft Sta
pleton" (their coach); an
other asked "Pray for

detonated on the 46-yard

'Sweat It Out'
But a record crowd of 28,
000 fans filled Iowa State's
recently enlarged Williams
Field and they soon forgot
any animosity they held for
their team.
Maybe they came out of
curiosity to see what the
nation's sixth ranked Corn
huskers looked like, or may
be they remembered how
tough the Cyclones had
made it for Nebraska in the
past when they were host
to the Huskers. But what
ever it w as, every Iowa
State fan there enjoyed
watching their scrappy Cy
clones make Nebraska
"sweat it out."
Iowa State's only score
came with 4:40 left in the
first half when defensive
end Don Graves intercepted
a flat pass thrown by Bob
Churchich and followed a
convoy of blockers into the
end zone. Churchich was the
only Husker in position to

Score Tied
The TD tied the score 6-6
and although halfback Les
Webster ran well for the
Cyclones all afternoon (91
yards in 22 attempts) Iowa
State never again threat
ened. The Nebraska offense
moved w ell in the first
quarter and throughout
most of the game, but mis
takes always hampered the
Huskers. Nebraska finished
the game with 412 yards to
tal rushing but Bob Devan
ey's team had trouble get
ting any of that yardage
down around the goal line.
Nebraska's first drive of
the game fizzled out on the
ISU 14 following a back
field in motion penalty and
safety man Larry Wach
holtz, star of the Utah State
game, was called on to boot
a field goal which, when
made, gave Nebraska a 3-0
Nebraska's second drive
of the quarter came to an
end on the ISU 21 and again
Wachholtz saw offensive
duty. Another field goal
made it 6-0 and the Hus
kers at this point looked
good except for the m i s
takes. Last Chance
Nebraska had three
drives halted in the second
half by fumble losses and
as time was running out in
the fourth quarter it began
to look as though the Hus
kers would at best have to
settle for a 6-6 tie.
However, linebacker
Rick Coleman gave Ne
braska one last chance to
move the football when he
intercepted a Tim Van Gal

late in the fourth quarter,

Hare 'Out'
For 66-67
Fred Hare, a Varsity Iet
terman and sophomore reg
ular on the basketball team
will not return for the 1966
67 season.
Due to slow recovery of
his right knee following an
operation, Hare will miss
the season, but will retain
his eligibility through a
hardship case.
Coach Joe Cipriano de
cided to keep Hare from
playing this season after
doctors advised that Hare's
knee could not stand t h e
jumping and drills. Cipri
ano then obtained a hard
ship ruling for Hare. Under
a hardship ruling an ath
lete doesn't lose his eligi
bility. The ruling recognizes
the fact that the athlete has
no control over his inability
to play.
The cartilage and liga
ment operation on Hare's
knee was performed last
"During the summer I
worked out and the knee
would swell. It still causes
me pain if I jump or cut
sharp," said Hare.
He worked on the Lin
coln police force during the
summer and will continue
as an officer this year.
While working Hare still
goes through light daily
"I plan on taking some
hours second semester
while I work, commented
Hare. "That way I'll be
ready for school and bas
ketball next year."
