Page 4 "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 . . Frosi by Randy York Assistant Sports Editor 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.

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."

When5,000Kansas followers can outyell 60,000 Nebraska backers, something is wrong. Do you have the answer? WE WON'T degrade the Kansas football team like many Lincolnites have, but we will comment aDout Jayhawk enthusiasm. Nebraskans may not scream and yell much, but they certainly fill Memorial Stadium. When the Jayhawks met New Mexico two Saturdays ago in a driving rainstorm, only 21,000 fans attended the game at Lawrence. Last Saturday the Jayhawks opened their Big Eight season under beautiful skies against Oklahoma State and onlv 36,000 persons went. to a 51,500 capacity stadium. What's the excuse this time, no Playboy bunnies to enter tain the crowd? JUST TO show that we aren't against everything to day, let's compliment assis tant track coach Dean Brit tenham for his perfect coaching record with the cross country team, while head coach Frank Sevigne was in Mexico City watching the Olympics. The cross country team may rebound from two con secutive last place finishes in the league meet to a cham pionship effort Nov. 9 at the conference meet in Lawrence.

I was very ner vous though." "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. LAST WORDS With four of its last five games outside Lincoln, including matches at Colorado and Oklahoma, Nebraska will be hard press ed to finish second in the Big Eight. But don't give up the team hasn't. responsible for the sound rushing game. The Belle Glade, Fla. All Stater did not even play of fensively in high school. He played linebacker. "I had practiced guard though," Perez said, "and I have always known how to play it. It doesn't bother me playing offense. It just want to play football, and as long as I'm first string, it doesn't matter where I play." DESPITE WINNING in an impressive fashion, the freshmen realized they have much to learn. straight-ahead power block ing," Perez said. "I was chopping them down pretty good, but I need to work on sustaining the block longer." "I did so many crummy things against Missouri," count them all, it would be a miracle." A stray Brownson pitchout was recovered by Mizzou's Dave Frieze in the Nebraska end zone for Tiger touchdown in the third quarter.
