Bob Churchich
Third Time
A Charm?
If experience is the best
teacher, Nebraska should
be in good command
against Alabama in the Su
gar Bowl with quarterback
Bob Churchich at the con
trols. As a sophomore Church
ich directed Nebraska
against Arkansas in the
Cotton Bowl and last year
he was the Husker signal
caller in the Orange Bowl
game against the Crimson
And to carry the maxim
a bit further, Churchich is
probably hoping the third
time will be the charm Jan.
2 in New Orleans, as he has
yet to direct his team to
victory in a bowl game. The
Huskers lost to the Razor
backs 10-7 in Dallas two
years ago and were beaten
by Alabama 39-28 in the
1966 Orange Bowl.
Churchich, a more effect
ive passer than runner,
threw the ball 15 times in
the Cotton Bowl and com
pleted eight for 68 yards.
That divides into a .533 per
centage, which was just
barely above the .529 pass
ing precentage he had for
the 1964 season. As a soph
omore, he completed 54 of
102 passes for 893 yards and
seven touchdowns in the
regular season.
Against Alabama last
season in the Orange Bowl,
Churchich completed 12 of
17 passes for 232 yards and
had three aerial touchdowns
which is a Nebraska one
game touchdown record on
passes. For the regular 1965
season, he tossed 66 passes,
completing 29 of them for
405 yards and four touch
downs. In the recently completed
1966 regular season,
Churchich connected on 96
of 174 passes for a .552 per
centage. Those 96 comple
tions total 1,136 passing
yards and include four
touchdown strikes.
In his three years with
the varsity, Churchich has
set 15 Nebraska records.

Alabama Acacians
Ask Wager Payoff
B yBob Flasnick
Sports' Editor
Acacia fraternity at Ne
braska is presently exper
iencing a verbal battle with
their chapter at Alabama
which is encompassing near
all means of communica
tion. It all started last year
when the Nebraska chapter
agreed to bet a skin (an
animal hide trophy) on the
outcome of the Orange
Bowl game with the Crim
son Tide.
After Huskers had lost to
Alabama 28 to 39 and the
Nebraska Acacians had
failed to follow through with
the bet by last May, they
received a letter from Ala
bama asking why they had
not made delivery of t h e
The reply, according to
Brown, was that because of
the fine job Alabama had
done against the Huskers,
the Nebraska chapter was
having a hand-tooled skin
made and it would take
more time than a purchased
skin. Brown told them that
the skin would be delivered
at the Acacia National Con
clave in New Orleans, La.
which was held last August
The correspondence from
Alabama continued last
October concerning Nebras
ka's narrow victories over
some weak opponents. It
consisted of a series of col

ing guard, Pat Frink, is
back and he's better than
ever. And it's no accident
than he has returned from
a surgically-forced year's
layoff to resume firing at
the same torrid pace which
earned him All-Big Eight
honors as a rookie two
years ago.
No man has ever worked
harder to regain his play

junior from Wheat Ridge.
If anything, he may be more

Scantlebury Scoring
Leads Junior Cagers
By pushing the Nebraska
freshman team over the 100
mark in the yearlings' first
two victories, eight players
have entered the double
figure scoring column in
season totals.
Tom Scantlebury, a
guard, from Oakland, Calif,
leads the scoring for the
Husker squad that drove
past Drake 101-90 and
stomped Southwestern Iowa,
105-60. Scantlebury has 56
points on 24 field goals and
an eight for eight mark in
free throw attempts.
Tom Line, a 6-3 guard
from Los Angeles, Calif., is
second in scoring with 12
field goals and three for
three on the foul line for a
total of 27. Bob Gratopp, 6-4
forward from Grafton, is a
close third with 12 two
pointers. Forward Ken Cauble of
Midland, Tex., has 21 tal
lies, 18 of t h e m on field
goals and another forward,

Then came Nebrask's tel

Pat was accepted and
spent the full 8-week session
at Cousy's Camp Graylag
at Pittsfield, Mass.
"It was just great," says
Pat. "A perfect place to be.
Lots of basketball every day
and lots ofcontact with
Cousy and plenty of time
and space to run and
strengthen my leg."
That latter activity was
undoubtedly the most im
portant aspect of Frank's
summer job. Beginning
slowly and building up the
distance steadily through
the dirt roads which sur
rounded the camp, Pat was
knocking off six miles every
other day during the last
month. When he reported
for fall practice October 15,
the leg was completely
sound. Aside from the scar,
there's no indication any
thing ever was wrong with
the hinge.
It goes without saying
that Frink is an important
member of this year's smal
lish CU cast. The Buffaloes,
without a proven high-scoring
big man, must run more
than usual and hit with
deadly accuracy from out
side if they are to have any
success in 1966-67.
Frink's involvement with
Cousy should pay dividends
for the Buffaloes.
"The one thing I learned
most from him was playing
the fast break," says Pat.
"He empasized keeping the
ball alive with the dribble
and knowing where your
teammates are. We've been
running alot in the early
season practices and I think
we can do it effectively."
