"Quarterback
have helped Husker
by Mark Gordon
Sports Editor
We don't intend to second
Nebraska coach Bob
DeVaney for every call he
made in losses to Kansas ana
Missouri or in wins over
Utah, Wyoming or Minnesota
Rut we think that a com
ment made by Missouri Tiger
rartin announcer Harrv Caray
tri the Daily Nebraskan
following Nebraska's second
straight loss Saturday nas
some merit.
Caray, in Lincoln to broad
pa st the Missouri eame to St
Louis, may be better known
ni the radio voice of the St.
Louis baseball Cardinals. But
he still knows his football.
-"NEBRASKA has a fine
team," he said. "But I'm just
p-lad that Patrick
(quarterback Frank) wasn't
in there longer tnan ne was.
He could break a game wide
open in a hurry."
We agree, and we feel the
big 67" quarterback, who as
a sophomore led the Big
Eight in ! passing last fall,
should have played much
earlier than he did against
Missouri Saturday.
Patrick played poorly
against Wyoming, and he was
rightfully, replaced by . Ernie
Sigler, one of the teams most
likeable members. Sigler
performed well against Utah,
and really showed
determination in bringing
Nsbraska from a 14-0 deficit
into a 17-14 victory over Min
nesota. But when the Texan failed
to sparkle against Kansas and
Missouri, it was time for a
change. Maybe not a perma
nent switch, but Patrick
should have been inserted In
Brighter years ahead . .

If there is one thing that
breeds optimism for a college
football coach, it's a strong
freshmen football team.
And if Nebraska Coach Bob
Devaney seems optimist
these days despite the
Huskers' two losses, it's pro
bably because he knows he
has a strong freshmen foot
ball team.
The Husker yearlings,
directed by Coach Clete
Fischer, produced that op
timism by burying Missouri,
40-21, in their college football
debut last Friday. They ran
well, passed well, blocked
well and tackled well.
INDIVIDUAL standouts in
cluded quarterback Van
Brownson, halfback Jeff Kin
ney, guard Julio Perez,
linebacker Jim Branch and
defensive tackle Larry
Jacobson.
Brownson, the best of four
top-caliber froah
quarterbacks, connected on
v. seven of 13 passes for 122
yards.
"We had been waiting for
six weeks to play," Brownson
said. "We were tired of prac
ticing against each other and
wanted to get out and take
someone else."
"Yeah, I wan nervous," he
said. "You just have to be
cared to play football. That
is, when you play the best,
obviously you're scared."
"It's more of a
psychological differ ence,"
Brownson continued. "In col
lege you know they're going
to be bigger and tougher.
You move up a step you have

an effort to bolster the team.
It is next to impossible to
put a quarterback into the
game after sitting on the
bench for four weeks and ex
pect him to move 87 yards
with less than 50 seconds to
play.
We aren't saying that
Patrick necessarily could
have overcome the Husker
fumblitis disease that struck
six times against Missouri,
but he might have helped.
WHILE DISCUSSING
Nebraska football, the action
of 60,000 fans in Baltimore
Sunday during the Colts 30
20 setback to the Cleveland
Brown could be applied to the
65,000 Memorial Stadium fans
who attend Husker games.
Baltimore's great
quarterback, Johnny Unitas,
was obviously off target in his
first appearance of the season
as Cleveland handed the Colts
their first 1968 loss.
How did the "loyal" Colt
fans support their former
idol, who has led the Colts to
two world titles and numerous
second-place finishes? They
constantly booed him and
cheered when he was replac
ed late in the game by Earl
Morrall.
Nebraska fans may not boo
quarterbacks having an off
day, but they don't display
overt enthusiasm either, ex
cept when the Big Red places
points on the scoreboard. To
sit apathetically is as bad as
the disgusting display of the
to raise yourself to the oc
casion." BROWNSON, an Ail
American prep star of
Shenandoah, Iowa, was an
attractive lure to many col
lege coaches, including
Missouri's Dan Devine, who
offered Brownson a full
scholarship.
The 6-2, 176-pounder finally
narrowed the bids down to
Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas
and Purdue. But luckily for the
Huskers, Nebraska had the
inside track.
"I was born in Lincoln,"
Brownson said, "and I just
love the town of Lincoln.
Really, there wasn't much
doubt about my coming
here."
Devaney caught another top
recruit in Branch, an All-Star,
All-City and All-State lineman

coaching record with the
cross country team, while
head coach Frank Sevigne

"College football hasn't
changed that much from high
school football," Branch sad.
"The competition is just a
little tougher. I was very ner

"Missouri is a good offen
sive team," Branch said.
"They didn't run to my side
much. When they did, the
wide sweeps gave me the
most trouble because they
faked the dive a lot to draw
you in."
Kinney, a quarterback who
was converted to halfback for
balance, flashed good form,
rushing for 55 yards on nine
carries and catching four
passes for another 63 yards.
Time was going by so slow
out there," said the McCook
All-Stater. "It's a lot different
than going both ways in high
school."
"It's a lot of fun playing,
and it sure helps out when
you have a good blocking
fullback," Kinney said in
referring to Jim Carstens
from Glenellyn, 111. Carstens
also helped the rushing attack
with 62 yards in 15 tries.

WE THOUGHT we had
heard of just about everything
until we read a note by Bill
Kamery from the Nebraska
Sports Car Club informing us
that, believe it or not, a Hare
and Hound Sports car rally
will be held this Saturday
night beginning at 8 p.m.
from the Congress Inn, 2001
East O Street.
Cars will follow a trail, a
white line made before the
race starts a short distance
past every intersection. The
auto with the least mileage
will be declared the winner.
And what does the winner
receive for his efforts? A case
of oil.
Registration begins at 7
p.m. at the Congress Inn.
Hares or hounds may call 432
9971 or 423-3040 for additional
information. Happy driving.
We have never seen a
better defense than what was
performed in the Nebraska
Missouri game by Huskers
Ken Geddes and Jerry
Murtaugh and Tiger Rocky
Wallace.
Geddes made 13 solo
tackles with 7 assisted
tackles, while Murtaugh had 8
solos and 7 aids, and Wallace
tallied 7 solo jobs with 2
unassisted tackles, and
recovered 2 fumbles.
