When UNL wrestling Coach Orval
Borgialli was asked about his team's
chances in the Big 8 tournament Friday
and Saturday, he said the Huskers could
finish anywhere from second to last
place, depending on their emotional
Sophomore co-captain Bob Johnson
said the best way to measure how fired
up a team was is by the amount of sleep
the wrestlers get the night before the
"If it means a lot to you, you II lay
around and think about the match most
of the night," Johnson said.
Johnson said the team h3S showed
signs at practice this week that they were
starting to get fired up.
Even if the youthful Huskers reach an
emotional peak this weekend in the
Norman, Okla., tournament they'll have 8
tough time taking tha title from
defending Big 8 champion Oklahoma
State University.
Returning from last year's unit for the
Cowboys are defending conference
champions Billy Martin, at 128 pounds,
and Rick Jones, at 177 pounds.
Borgialli warned that the dual season
record is not an accurate indicator of the
meet's outcome. "It will be purely an
individual tiling down there," he said.
For the Huskers, top individuals
include Johnson, at 190 pounds. He can
expect trouble from Alex Maculuso of
OSU, ISU's Al Nacin and Tom Cook from
the University of Missouri; Bruce Conger,
heavyweight, who posted the second best
individual record on this year's Husker
team; Gary Harnisch and Tony Jennings,
who both have shown much improvement
