Pat Morell will be one of the biggest boosters of
Nebraska's offense next fall.
It's supposed to be powerful, and he hopes it is.
But if it isn't, the defense will be ready.
"IF IT GETS down
we will win a lot of games
Consequently, he wasn't surprised when the black shirts
dominated the offense in last Sunday's scrimmage.
"It was just a case of the defense beating the offense man
to man," Morell said.
"PEOPLE DON'T realize it, but we have a lot of good
players on defense," he added. "Last year's second team de
fense could have beaten a lot of teams."
Morell points to players
Morock, and Ed Periard,
who have played behind
Dana Stephenson, Al Lar
son, and Ken Geddes.
"These guys are just get
ting their first chance to
prove themselves," he said.
The former Kansas all
stater from Wichita West is
battling Bob Terrio for the
starting linebacker position
opposite all-America candi
date Jerry Murtaugh.
TERRIO WAS on the blackshirts for Sunday's scrimmage
after Morell had held the spot all spring, but Morell was
graded higher in the films and has returned to the first
"Bob is a good football player," Morell said of his
rival, "but I'm not going to ruin my black shirt chances
Despite the fact hat he and Murtaugh are the only
returning linebackers with experience, Morell isn't worried
about depth. He said that Jim Branch and Bruce Hauge
would help make the linebacking position stronger.
The sophomore in pre-dentistry added that it is a big
advantage to play alongside Murtaugh. "You never have
to worry about his side," he said.
MORELL IS a former Lincoln resident and played foot
ball as a sophomore for Lincoln Northeast before moving
to Wichita. His family has since moved to K;iasas City.
Morell's brother Joe is a freshman at Missouri where he
was a varsity wrestler this past season.
Morell saw considerable action as a sophomore, . at first
backing up Murtaugh and then dividing time with weakside
linebacker Adrian Fiala. The 6-2, 217-pounder said his biggest
thrills were playing well against Colorado and Oklahoma
and stopping well established players Bob Anderson and
