Utah lettermen
hut Skins face
by Randy York
Assistant Sports Editor
A flock of 33 returning let
termen greeted Utah's new
football coach Bill Meek, but
that figure tends to be
somewhat deceiving.
The 13 lettermen the
Redskins lost from last year's
outfit, which posted a 4-7
record, accounted for the bulk
of what punch the Utes had.
Youth is the keynote as
Meek prepares to rebuild the
offensive line which lists only
one returning regular at the
same position.
But that one returning
regular up front could spell
trouble for the Huskers when
the Skins invade Memorial
Stadium Saturday.
JACK ANDREWS, who led
the Utes m receiving his
junior season, launches his
senior campaign at the split
end slot In 1967 h' was on
the receiving end of 38 passes,
good for 452 yards and three
touchdowns.
But obviously, Andrews'
effectivenesss will rely on the
q u arterback performance,
and the Salt Lake City club
faced a definite problem at
that spot after completing
spring drills.
Fall practice sessions,
however, produced a pleasant
surprise as junior Ray Groth,
the starting flanker on last
year's unit, turned in an
outstanding job to nail down
the No. 1 spot at signalcaller.
Groth ranked third in
receiving statistics last year
as a soph, grabbing 18 passes
for 299 yards and three
touchdowns. Possessing ex
cellent speed, he is considered
a threat on the pass-run op
tion after improving on his
passing game this fall.
Meek has incorporated a
new offensive system, throw
ing the "Pro I" into the waste
can. The former Kansas State
pilot has installed the "T"
with a number ot variations,
hopefully to create a more
balanced running attack.
Steve Molnar, the only of
fensive back who was ex
pected to resume a starting
position this season, suffered

minor injuries in early fall
workouts, giving a slight ad
vantage to junior Nate Tyler.
Junior Bill Fowler, second
leading scorer with five
touchdowns for the 1967 tribe
of Redskins, will start at right
halfback while the left
halfback slot will be manned
by senior Greg Soulds, who
moved ahead of Dave Smith
after an inter-squad scrim
mage last Saturday.
SOPHOMORE Cal Poulson,
top quarterback for last
year's freshman team; and
junior Tim Harr, transfer
from California's junior col
lege system, press Fowler for
the right halfback assign
ment. Ted Harper, at 6-6, 215
pound junior, is the likely
tight end starter opposite
Andrews at split end.
The left tackle job has been
completely up for grabs, but
the coid will be filled by
Marion Boykin, a 236-pound
soph. Senior Harold Richard
son, who saw limited action
last year, will line up as the
starting left guard.
The defensive side of the
ledger stacks up as a strong
point, experience-wise, with
eight of the starting 11 from
last year's unit returning. But
auain this fieure may
devceice as the 1967 troops
yielded 252 points, an average
close to 23 per game.
Norm McBride and Gary
Kerl, who pack 460 pounds
between them, are rated two
of the finest defensive ends
in the Western Athletic Con
ference. McBride, a Los

THE UTES will revert from
the four and five man line
of a year ago to a six man
front with two linebackers
The two additional men are
tabbed "defensive corner
men" and will be playing out
side, much like a defensive
end.
Veterans return to both
sides, making the linebacking
positions solid. Senior Doug
Poulson and junior Larry
Stone both started last season
for the Skins and are counted
on heavily this year.
Gary Barker, starting
safety last year as a soph,
again will open at that spot.
Barker intercepted six passes
in '67, averaging better than
30 yards per return.
Utah is the second straight
WAC for the Huskers will face
this season. NU dumped
Wyoming, rated as one of the
top three teams in the loop,
in its opener, 13-10. The Utes
have been picked to finish
sixth in the e i g h t -1 e a m
league. Pre-season polls are
getting an early workout. The
credibility of the polls re
mains to be seen.

It looks as if John Olson
can start passing around
cigars this year.
Because his child looks as
if it will live. In fact, it's
alive and kicking in the Stu
dent Union.
Olson's child is the
University of Nebraska
chapter of the Nebraska
Region Sports Car Club of
America. If that sounds like
a mouthful, that's because
Olson had to go to a lot of
trouble to make everything
legal and come out in the
open with it.
WHEN I first talked to
Olson a year ago he was
then in the comptroller's of
fice he was planning to
get NU students interested in
joining the activities of the
Nebraska Region club and,
more particularly, the Lincoln
group, of which he was a
member.
John was then quite
pessimistic about actually
forming a n independent
campus organization, out
hoped to lure some students
into sports car'rallies already
going on around Lincoln.
He began by talking to a

that he hoped to get students
involved.
Olson soon found out he had
underestimated the
enthusiasm of some of the
students when they
immediately pressed him to

region and pressed Olson to
help them set up their own
rally.
From there the thing just
seemed to flower; and when
the newly-formed club held
it's first time-distance rally
last spring more than 40
participants turned up.
BUT THE thing which
pleased Olson most was that
only about half the members
owned what is normally con
sidered a "sports car," in the
European rally tradition.
This was the thing he has
tried to stress: that one need
not own a Jaguar in order
to take part in a rally. A
Chevrolet or Ford will do just
as well as far as having fun.
This year Olson is no longer
with the University, but is
still serving the club as region
adviser.

College is serving as faculty
adviser to the club and the
paperwork of getting legaliz
ed, is now being put through
student activities.
For those who wish to get
in on a good thing, the first
rally of this season is set for
Sunday, Sept. 29. It will be
another time-distance rally
starting from the Dental Col
lege parking lot at noon.
For those just interested in
seeing what goes on, the next
meeting of the club will be
held Oct. 2 in the Union,
beginning at 9 p.m., with the
election of officers.
Anyone interested in "just
having fun" should contact
Olson or one of the officers
of the club. What started out
as a good idea is now a
working plan, and soon it will
even be "A.S.U.N Approved."
