Devaney ignores politics
Bob Devaney refuses to play politics with the AP or UPI. The
Cornhusker head coach will not roll up a big score just to impress
"I don't think it makes any difference if you win 35-7 or
55-7," said Devaney. "As long as you win by a decisive margin
that's all that should really count."
Devaney has been under attack since Notre Dame gained 60
points on the Huskers in this week's AP poll. Fans think Notre
Dame played politics in scoring a big 50-7 win over Northwestern
while the Cornhuskers settled for a 35-7 win over Minnesota.
"I don't think Ara (Parscghian, Notre Dame coach)
intentionally rolled up a big score," said Devaney. "There's a
strong friendship between Ara and Alex Agase (Northwestern
coach). It just happened that Northwestern turned over the
football and gave Notre Dame easy scoring opportunities."
Devaney could have rolled up the score against the Gophers.
The Huskers led 35-7 after the third period before Devaney went
lo his bench for the entire fourth quarter.
"It's more important that we experiment with other players
instead of trying to roll up a big score," said Devaney. "If we
have a big lead and we don't substitute we're making a big
mistake. We have to think about team morale."
Devaney never tries to humilate another team by rolling up the
score. Devaney is more than just a coach, he's a psychologist. He
knows how to get the most out of his players.
Perhaps letting as many as possible play is really the most
"Besides," says Devaney, "the only important poll is the one
at the end of the season. That's the only one we're thinking

The steer, which weighs 1 .000 pounds, will receive a warm

But that will be the last game the steer will see. Plans are to

Two years ago when
Nebraska took the'field against
Texas A & M, Bill Janssen was
making his first start in a
At the time, the Grand
Forks, N.D. native was at a
defensive end spot, but that's
only one of many positions the
versatile Janssen has played in
his football career.
A LINEBACKER and
offensive tackle in high school,
he started the 1968 freshman
season at defensive tackle. He
moved to defensive end for the
start of the 1969 varsity
season, earning his first start
against A & M, and had logged
enough time by the middle of
the season to earn his first
But shortly after
mid-season, he moved to

finished the year. By spring
practice, Janssen had moved
again, this time to center, and
had won himself the starting
Then the week before the
Huskers' seasons opener with
Southern Cal, Janssen suffered
a broken arm. The injury
forced him to sit out the entire
season, and at the time he
called the setback "about the
biggest disappointment of my
HE NEVER LOST his
enthusiasm though, and
Janssen is back for his junior
season this year. He has changed
positions again-back to the
defensive tackle spot where he
started his career at
Nebraska-and once again he is
"Coach Devaney gave me a
choice when I had my broken
arm of where I wanted to play,
and I told him I'd play
anywhere," Janssen said.
The various position
changes he has made during his
career haven't affected him
much, he said.
"IT REALLY hasn't been
that hard because the coaching
staff is really good, really
tremendous," he said. "When
they switched me to different
positions, it was only because
they thought I could play
With his experience at six
positions during his football
career, including three
offensive spots, Janssen still
prefers the unit he is with
"I've just played defense so
long, that's just the side of the
game I enjoy more. It's the
better side to be on," he said.
