1 s."
Actually, for those non-believers In the crowd, Daily
Nebraskans do make good eating. Encouraged by com
pliments of last Thursday's Missouri prediction, I've been
eating my words just as I hoped I would have to.
Unfortunately, the second correction of the misprint
ed guess did not make the deadline. It was to read 129
0 for Nebraska, 9-2 or 12-9. Munch, munch, munch.
Happily, the worst prediction was accompanied by
the best Husker showing in the Devaney Era. And there
were many games to compare the Tiger devastation to.
The Kansas victory in 1962, the post-assassination day
win over Oklahoma or the Wisconsin victory in 1965.
On another, more pleasant topic, do you want to see
New Orleans in January? Of course your feelings don't
amount to a hill of Rood predictions, but if given a
chance, the Nebraska team may well favor a trip to
that city for a repeat against supposed foe, Alabama.
The whole bowl setup might be compared to political
elections the teams being the candidates and the bowl
victory being election to office.
Candidates stump the country with far-flung sched
ules to convince voters, bowl committee members. Polls
rate the rivals with varying efficiency until primary
time rolls around (the Monday after the ninth game in
football's case.)
As in politics, football team spokesmen remain very
noncommittal as to whether they are going to play at
all. Some good candidates (Notre Dame, for instance),
won't play unless the No. 1 office is going to be decided.
Our campaign manager, Sports Information Director
Don Bryant, must pour lavish praise on his candidate
and yet remain discreet. He or party chairman Devaney
cannot reveal whether the candidate has the delegates
(bowl committee) in his pocket.
Finally, the delegates caucus and select a candidate.
He must be balanced, passing and rushing. He must
have mass appeal. He must have a good TV appearance.
It helps to have support in the polls. It helps to have
a good campaign record (bowl record).
As the candidate nears election (bowl) time, he cam
paigns hard on his home ground and then journeys to
the far reaches of his jurisdiction (like maybe Browns
ville, Texas) to campaign (workout).
Sometimes the candidate is accused of spending too
much money and of practicing patronage (starting jobs),
but he always counters by saying, "Look at all the
money I have brought into our district. I put our area
on the map."
Finally, comes election night. There are parades and
complete TV coverage. (Maybe the computers will guess
bowl outcomes this year as well as elections. Several
weeks this year they would have broken down trying.)
Football, like political campaigns, is the American
Way whatever the hell that is.
Next is Kansas. The Jayhawks have been able to
give Nebraska tense times two out of the last three
years. A key interception turned the 1963 tide by a 23-9
score and Gale Sayers kneed a pass out of his hands
to make a 14-7 margin stand up in 1964.
Last year, the task was easier. In a game not dis
similar from the 40-16 win Lawrence in 1962, the Hus
kers out-lined the Jayhawks 42-6.
History seems to show an early blitz will make things
easy over Kansas. This season's NU performance backs
that up.
I see it-munch, munch NEBRASKA 28 KANSAS 0.

Van Galder Bonanza
Nears Big 8 Record
The oldest Big E 1 g h t
Conference football record
still possible to break is in
serious jeopardy this week
after Iowa State's Tim
Van Galder hit a passing
bonanza last week, moving
to within 347 yards of Paul
Christman's career throw
ing standard.
Van Galder spun a web
sround 242 aerial yards
against Oklahoma State,
the best single game effort
in the Conference this year,
to put his career passing
total at 2,793. Just 346 more
will tie Christman's total of
3,139 for Missouri in 1938-39-40.
Van Galder has three
more games to go, mean
ing he will have to average
116 a game to become No.
1. That is 30 yards a game
under his seven-game 1966
pace he has hit for 1,021,
which gives him the Con
ference's best this week.
Last week's leader, Bob
Churchich of Nebraska, now
has 873.
The passing outburst also
pushed Van Galder by an
other Big Eight milestone
3,000 career total yards.
The Spider's three-year to
tal now stands at 3,015,
making him the ninth man
in league history to hit
the 3,000 level. On the sea
son, his total offense figure
stands at 1,085, over 250
more than Oklahoma's Bob
Warmack (832).
For Van Galder, the 242
game was his fourth over

220 yards, putting him in a
class by himself, too. Three
of his efforts the 242, plus
293 against Kansas State
and 255 against New Mex
ico last year, are listed
among the 10 best Confer
ence single-game totals.
A quick comparison with
Chrlstman, who had two
200-pIus games during h i s
three seasons, shows that
Van Galder holds a career
per-game edge of 111.5 to
101. Chrlstman, however,
averaged almost seven
yards a pass, while Van
Galder is a yard under
that figure. Christman was
also more accurate, hitting
45 per cent of his throws
with the "fatter" ball. Van
Galder connects 43 per cent
of the time.
Almost certain to become
a record breaker before Van
Galder, however, is his
primary target, Eppie Bar
ney, who has now caught 35
this year. This leaves him
just three short of another
Iowa Stater's career rec
ord, the 79 receptions mark
held by Jim Doran (1948
50). Ten more catches would
also give Barney the sea
son record of 44 currently
held by Missouri's Hal Bur-
Barney caught six more
Saturday for 107 yards as
he retrieved his receiving
yardage lead while holding
command in total recep
tions. His 35 for the year
equals his 1965 production.

For Kansas
Injuries have caused
some reshuffling of the Ne
braska freshman squad that
meets Kansas at Lawrence's
Memorial Stadium at 2:30
Fullback Phil Vassar, of
Uniontown, Pa., who is side
lined with an injury, will be
replaced by Lincoln Pius X

Dave McGhee of Flint,
Mich., is another change in
the frosh line-up.
McGhee has been moved
to defensive middle guard
by Coach John Melton.
McGhee, who weighs near
275 pounds, will replace Lar
ry Clark of Oshkosh, Wis.
Coach Melton, asked
about the team's ' attitude
after last week's 13-12 loss
to Missouri, said, "Their
spirit is all right. They re
alize what has to be done."
What the team has to be
done is to win their second

more than happy with the
team's comeback win at

doesn't want his team to
