K-State players apper downhearted after jarring the
ball from Tony Davis only to have Mark Doak fall on it
for a Nebraska touchdown.
Huskers looking ahead to OU
After Nebraska had routinely dis
posed of Kansas State Saturday, the
major topic of conversation in the
Wildcat locker roon was the Huskers'
chances of derailing Oklahoma.
Wildcat quarterback Arthur Bailey
and safety Gordon Chambliss forecast a
Sooner victory, pointing to their super
ior team speed.
Bailey, the freshman who replaced
injured Steve Grogan, kept the game
reasonably close while leading the
Wildcats to a couple of time- and
In fact, K-State actually outyarded the
Huskers in the first half, despite falling
Nebraska's second score of the
afternoon took some of the snarl out of
the freshman-laden Wildcats.
Monte Anthony's five-yard touch
down scamper was setup when Bailey
was stopped short on a fourth down
gamble at the Wildcat thirty.
It was apparent to everyone but the
men in striped uniforms that Bailey had
made it to the thirty-one yardline before
being pushed back.
"I'd have sworn we made that
thing," Gibson said. "But it doesn't do
any good to criticize the officials."
Nebraska's other touchdowns came
on touchdown passes to Brad Jenkins
and Don Westbrook, a two-yard run by
Jeff Moran and a fumble recovery by
Doak was kidded by teammates
afterwards that he was in a position to
pounce on the fumble only because he
had missed his block.
The senior left tackle was not
flustered by the chiding that included an
accusation that he tripped and fell on
"Tony knew he had the touchdown,
so he thought he'd throw it to me," he
said. "He knew I needed the publicity."
Doak and his tearrjmates all will be in
the public eye when they tackle the
Oklahoma Sooners next Saturday.
The Sooners, ranked number one,
feature such superstars as Joe Washing
ton and Rod Shoate and haven't lost
As Husker fans filed out of Memorial
Stadium Saturday there was the general
feeling that the Nebraska defense would
have to perform much better (249 yards
allowed to K-State) to escape another
case of Thanksgiving gloom.
One fan theorized, "We had better
bear down or they'll have to make room
for another digit on Oklahoma's side of
Early bids jinxing bowl teams
Saturday was Nov. 16, the date
college bowl officials agreed would be
the first day for extending bowl bids to
prospective college teams.
However, patience was a virtue bowl
representatives didn't have, and most
bids were filled by last weekend.
How different would the bowl scene
look if officials had waited?
A bowl bid this year is a commodity
that has jinxed the t m that accepts it
Seven teams bound for postseason play
suffered losses in the past two weeks,
including Nebraska's Sugar Bowl
Florida beaten twice
Two weeks ago, the Gators fell to
Georgia 17-16, and Saturday they were
upset by Kentucky 41-24. It is safe to
assume that if bids had been extended
Saturday, Florida would not be the
in the meantime, the only thing the
Gators could hope to accomplish in
addition to robbing the Sugar Bowl of its
prestige, is to make Nebraska overcon
fident. After all, Florida coach Doug
Dicky probably figures that, because
Nebraska lost to Missouri after the
Tigers were trounced by Wisconsin, if
hi3 team loses the rest of its games, the
Huskers will be lax in preparing for the
New Years Eve contest.
Penn Stat jinxed
Other examples of the bowl jinx are
North Carolina's loss to Clemson 54-32
and Penn State's 34-24 upset by North
Carolina State. Perm State and North
Carolina are bound for the Cotton and
Sun Bowls, respectively.
Scouts are looking at other teams, not
originally considered for bowl play,
following their upsets over other bowl
teams on consecutive weekends. Baylor,
which conquered Texas 34-24 and Texas
Tech 17-10, may be the best bet for the
Southwest conference championship
and a Cotton Bowl bid.
Kentucky, which beat Florida, also
beat Peach Bowl-bound Vanderbilt
38-12 to obtain consideration for the
The only bowl team with worse luck
than Florida the past two weeks has
hen Miami of Florida. The Hurricanes
iost to Alabama 28-7 last Saturday and
lost the week before to hapless Florida
State, 21-14, to tarnish their Tangerine
Bowl contest. The Hurricanes meet the
Gators next Saturday.
In the Big 8, Oklahoma State suffered
a 37-20 loss to Colorado one week after
accepting a bid to the Fiesta Bowl.
In this year of upsets in college
football, the past weeks' developments
are in tune with everything else that's
happened this year.
Girl picks Doane
How did the fastest girl in the United States end
up at Doane College in Crete, Neb.?
"It was my parents' influence and the fact my
brother goes there that convinced me," explained
Mary Lou Jasnoch, national record holder in the
50- and 100-yard dashes.
The 18-year-old Doane student from Oshkosh
might have enrolled at UNL, except for one minor
hitch. There is no women's track program here.
"Nebraska is a well-known university and
should have a fine women's track team, but hell
no," Jasnoch said. "Doane only has 600 kids, yet
it has a far superior women's athletic program.'
Lost three races
Jasnoch, who has lost only three of more than
500 races in her career, has been asked to run with
Doane's men's team. She is wavering, but so far
her answer is no.
Although she works out with the men, she said
she would feel out of place competing with men in
Jasnoch's father also went to Doane, where he
played football and once was timed at 9.6 in the
She said as a little girl she leafed through her
father's scrapbook of track accomplishments and
dreamed of someday being a sprinter.
Jasnoch started racing competitively when she
was seven. By the time she was a freshman in high
school, she was invincible in Nebraska girl's track
90 track medals
The outspoken blonde ("I talk as fast as I run")
has garnered more than 90 medals in track,
including nine gold medals at the Nebraska state
She lists as her biggest disappointment the time
she jumped the gun twice in the AAU nationals
and was disqualified.
"I was so nervous and everybody was star ing at
me," she remembers. "I'd never done it before
but I started to cry."
Later in the summer, at a national meet in
Lincoln, Jasnoch was a triple winer.
Her performance made her a temporary
celebrity and universities such as UCLA waved
scholarship offers in her face.
Anonymous at Doane
However, she decided on Doane and has since
settled into a life of relative anonymity.
She is beginning preparations for a shot at the
1976 Olympics, but the speedster has more
"I hope to be married by the time I'm 20," she
smiled. "That would be the life."
As for her visit to UNL, Jasnoch's head was not
turned by the big building and the number of
"I don't like the campus," she decided. "Here
you are just a number."
Which is exactly what Jasnoch is. A blurred
number, high-stepping past the rest of the pack.
