Defense molt dead at NU
Murtaugli, mates show

Nabraikan Sports Editor
Nebraska's defence gve Corohusker football skeptics
a lesson. It Is not only alive and well, but stingier than
Linebacker Jerry Murtaugb made the biggest bid In
renewing the Husker defensive muslce. But his mates were
equally effective in containing Nebraska's top offensive units,
steered by quarterbacks Jerry Tagge and Van Brownson
in a Sunday scrimmage.
NEBRASKA COACH Bob Devaney admitted that the
2-hour drill in which the defense dominated restored his
confidence after he criticized the defense for lack of pursuit
and pressure last week.
"There was a much better force from the defense with
a much more aggressive rush on the passer and tough
coverage, too," Devaney noted. "There weren't many guys
running around open."
The top two Nebraska offensive outfits produced only
one touchdown in Sunday's session when Jeff Kinney busted
one yard on an eight-play, 65-yard drive set up by a
38-yard broken pass play from Brownson to end Guy Ingles.
Otherwise, Murtaugh and company kept the offense In
check. So much so, in fact, that Tagge suffered a 6-23
passing effort, which included two interceptions.

BROWNSON was more effective with nine completions
in 17 attempts for 104 yards.
However, Tagge worked entirely against the top defense
while Brownson moved against the number two defense,
for the most part.
Mason, Glover impressive ,
Junior monster candidate Dave Mason, who suffered
a knee injury in the workout, and sophomore tackle Rich
Glover, who may be shifted to middle guard, were important
front wall defensive fixtures.
Reliable junior Jim Anderson, the only returning
defensive backfield starter, had his usual good day while
Inexperienced Dave Morock and Gary Hollstein showed con
siderable strength in number one defenseive back roles.
"The offense didn't do a good job of throwing, catching
or protecting," Devaney said. "We just did a poor job.
I suppose the brightest way to look at it is the defense
"I THOUGHT we were stronger at some positions on
offense," Devaney continued. "We may have to look carefully
to see if we have the right players in the right positions."
The offense suffered physically Sunday. Halfback Joe
Orduna sustained a new knee injury which may prevent him
from participating In the spring windup game May 9.
More X-rays are scheduled Thursday.
Schneiss, Terrio injured
Also, fullbacks Dan Schneiss suffered stretched neck
muscles and Bob Terrio a bruised shoulder.
JEFF HUGHES, Jim Carstens and sophomore stocking
