Basic Bob joins
ABC's Bland Bud
for big (red) talk
The matchup is a classic. It could be the most
intriguing thing to happen during a football telecast
since Howard Cosell threwup in the pressbox at
Minnesota last year.
Forget about Saturday's publicized rivalry
between Michigan State and Notre Dame on ABC-TV.
Listen, instead, to the commentary between Bland
Bud Wilkinson and Basic Bob Devaney. The
Cornhusker coach will join the ABC crew of
Wilkinson and Common Chris Schenkel for
Saturday's nationally televised game.
Bland Bud-Good afternoon, college football fans,
and welcome to another exciting telecast of NCAA
football. Today we have a special treat. Bob Devaney,
the fine coach from Nebraska, will help with our
telecast. Nebraska has won two straight national
championships and has another fine football team
again this year. Welcome, Bob, and how about that
football team of yours.
Basic Bob-Well, thank you very much, Bud. We
feel we have a fine football team this year, but we
can't look past Missouri, Kansas and Kansas State.
Bland Bud-Right you are, coach. That Big Eight is
a fine football conference. You have to keep your
fine athletes mentally prepared every week.
Basic Bob-Winning the Big Eight is the toughest
job in the country.
Bland Bud-You have another group of
athletes again this year, coach. I'm sure the
would like to hear about them.
Basic Bob-We feel Johnny Rodgers is a
fnnthii niaxnr He does a lot of things well
coaching staff has also been pleased with Rich Glover
and Willie Harper. They're fine football players.
Bland Bud-What about today's game, coach?
Basic Bob-Well, Bud, as you know Michigan State
and Notre Dame are both fine-hitting football teams.
Bland Bud-Right again, coach. And everybody
knows that when you have fine-hitting football teams
it should be a fine-hitting game.
Basic Bob-I'm looking for a fine game.
Bland Bud-We've had a lot of thrills on our
telecasts. And I'm sure it will t a, big treat for you
fans again today. The winning team will probably be
the team that has the most ball possessions. Ball
control is the big thing in football.
Basic Bob-We feel ball control is important, Bud.
Bland Bud-I'm sure you're looking forward to
that classic confrontation with Oklahoma, coach.
Basic Bob-Not really.
Bland Bud-I'm sure ball control will play an
important part in that game, too. And you must be
Basic Bob-We can't look past Kansas State.
Bland Bud-What about Colorado, coach?
Basic Bob-Eddie Crowder always tries something
different against us. It should be a fine game.
Bland Bud-So should this be a fine game, coach.
I'm sure the fans have enjoyed your comments. And
I've enjoyed talking with you, coach. I used to coach
football at Oklahoma.
Basic Bob-You were also a fine coach, Bud.
Bland Bud-Well thanks, coach. That's sure a
compliment coming from a fine coach like yourself.
Oklahoma, as I'm sure all you fans know, has another
fine football team this year. The Big Red is back.
Basic Bob We're also the Big Red, Bud.
Bland Bud-Right again, coach. Both Big Reds are
good. My favorite color is red, coach.
Basic Bob-I'm glad to hear that, Bud.
Bland Bud-And we're glad you're with us today,
coach. You're a fine coach of a fine team. Nowhere
is my colleague Chris Schenkel.
Common Chris-Thanks, Bud. And thank you,
Coach Devaney. We wish you and your extremely
tough Cornhuskers the best of luck this year. And
now we should be ready for a fine football game.
Colorado 35, Kansas State 10 . . . Rumors have it
that the Buffs are having internal problems. But that's
not unusual for the Buffs.
Oklahoma State 31, Missouri 21 . . .Sorry about
those earlier comments about the Cowboys. They
might be for real.
Kansas 35, Minnesota 24 . . . The Gophers will
find things much easier in the Big Ten.
Notre Dame 38, Michigan State 24 . . . This should
be a fine football game.
Cross country team
looks for first win
Nebraska's cross country team will attempt to get
on the winning trail Saturday when the Huskers host
defending champion Kansas State at Pioneer Park at
Nebraska, expected to be in contention for the Big
Eight title, lost its season opener last Saturday against
Colorado at Boulder.
Bob Unger, runner-up last season, paced the
Cornhuskers by finishing third. Mike Fertig (4th), Jim
Hawkins (6th), Lynn Hall (7th) and Roger Chadwick
(9th) also counted in the Nebraska total score of 29.
Colrado, lead by John Gregorio, who won the race,
had a score of 26.
Nebraska has never seemed to win a cross-country
meet at Colorado. "The altitude is a big factor," said
Hall, a two-year letterman from Grand Island. "I
thought before the season started that the Colorado
meet would be the toughest to win."
Even though the Nebraska harriers were beaten,
they remain optimistic according to Hall. "We still
plan on winning the Big Eight mefet. We know we can
Hn it "
