Osborne, Huskers battle
fans, KU in 1 0-9 squeaker
By Bill Bennett
Nebraska not only had to battle the Kansas
Jayhawks Saturday en route to a 10-9 victory,
but some of the 76,498 fans who filled
Memorial Stadium as well.
"The fans have a right to boo," Nebraska
Head Coach Tom Osborne said, "I'm afraid
we'v'!.1 lost some of our fans since last week. I've
never heard Nebraska fans boo their team at
h.i If Tune or at the end of a game."
Cornhusker middle guaid John Bell, who
had 12 tackles against the Jayhawks, called the
negative crowd reaction "pathetic."
"I'm sure the dedicated fans are still behind
us," he said. "But some fans forget that a win is
a win. Whether it's by one point or 77 points,
it s AiW a win."
John Dutton, Nebraska defensive tackle and
co-captain who had nine tackles against Kansas,
said the booing had no effect on him, but he
was "damn tired of it."
"A lot of fans expect us to blow everyone
cuit of the stadium, but it's just not that way,"
he v:id. "We were out there trying our hardest,
and theie was just no reason to boo.
"I used to play with no fans present when I
was a little kid," he said. "And I could do it
Osborne said the defense played very well,
but "I'm really disappointed in the offense
because of fumbles and pass interceptions."
Defensively, the Blackshirts dug in more
than once to stop the Jayhawks.
In the first quarter, after Kansas had
intercepted a Dave Humm pass and returned it
to the Nebraska 25 yard line, the Blackshirts
stopped the Jayhawks on the 20 yard line. A
Kansas field goal attempt failed.
In the third quarter, Kansas drove from their
own 46 yard line to the Nebraska 11 yard line,
where the Blackshirts stopped them on a fourth
and one situation.
Again in the third quarter, after the
Jayhawks had recovered a Randy Borg fumble
of a punt on the Nebraska 18 yard line and
s c o r e d five plays later, Kansas'
point after-attempt was blocked by Ardell
And in the fourth quarter, Cornhusker
linebacker Bob Nelson intercepted a Dave
Jaynes pass and returned it to the Kansas 16
yard line. That play set up Rich Sanger's
winning field goal.
Nelson said Jaynes overthrew the pass, "and
I got it.
"I didn't visualize running for any
touchdown," he said. "I didn't even visualise
catching it."
Borg, right cornerback for the Cornhuskers,
said "Jaynes did just what we expected him to
"We (defensive backs) reacted to what we
had to do, and we did it," lie said. "Earlier this
week, I didn't know if we could hold Jaynes to
under 100 yards, but that sure is what we were
hoping for." Jaynes completed 10 of 32 passes
for 90 yards against the Cornhuskers.
Offensively, Nebraska stopped themselves by
fumbling four time, losing three, and throwing
one pass interception.
"It was a very tough and frustrating game,"
quarterback Steve Runty said. "We'll just have
to find the offensive problems and correct them
for next week." Nebraska got 213 total
offensive yards against Kansas.
Osborne said the coaches will look at the
films to discover what went wrong.
"Kansas jumped around their secondary," he
said. "They were dropping back seven or eight
men, so they were able to play the pass very
well." Humm and Runty attempted eight passes
against the Jayhawks.
Bright spots in the Cornhusker offensive
attack were the first quarter, 80-yard
touchdown march that gave Nebraska a 7-0 lead
and the running of fullback Ralph Powell.
Powell gained 52 yards in 10 carries for an
average of 5.2 yards a carry.
"Our offensive line opened up some good
holes for me," he said "I just hox; to be able
to contribute to Nebraska's running game. I was
just doing my job."
Kansas Head Coach Don Fambiouyh said the
breaks in the game were about even,
"We had a turnover there in the fourth
quarter, that pass interception which they took
advantage of," he said. "But we took advantage
of some of their mistakes, too.
"What it boil? down to is we just got beat by
a good football team," he said.
Jayhawk flanker Bruce Adams was the
league's fouith leading receiver, but he didn't
catch any passes against the Cornhuskers.
"Sometimes we did our job," he said. "But
most of the time Nebraska did their job, and
that's what won the ball game for them."

Boston-Of 39 entries bete in bund ay's prestigious Head of

Before the regatta, Terry Barker, coach of the Harvard team
and the 1972 Olympic team, had praise for Nebiaska.
"We admire youi spirit to come so far for this event,"
