Returning NUgridders
eager for Indiana game
By Pete Wcgman
Five "new" faces will be present on
UNL's football team when the Huskers
meet the Indiana Hoosiers Saturday.
Four of the newcomers missed last Sat
urday's game with LSU through no fault of
their own. .
The four, safety Jim Burrow, quarter
back Vince Ferragamo, defensive tackle '
Dean Gissler and defensive end Ray Phillips
were serving a one-game NCAA probation
for ineligibly attending a bowl game.
Two of the players, Phillips and Burrow,
will start Saturday, according to Nebraska's
latest depth charts. Ferragamo and Gissler
also may play, according to head coach
Tom Osborne.
"Ferragamo should be ready to play and
hopefully will play some," Osborne said. -"Gissler
is ready to play too."
K rt Watches from stands
Ferragamo watched the LSU game in
the stands with teammates Scott Avery,
Jim Belka and Stan Waldemore.
"Right before the game, the band came
on the field," Ferragamo said, "and natural
ly it was exciting. We all wished we were
in the game."
"The probation is all behind us now.
I'm looking forward to playing. It's been
awhile (two years) since I played in an
actual game."
Safety Jim Burrow is a different situa
tion. He logged more playing time last year
than any returning defensive player.
Frustrating situation
"It was real frustrating just to know I
had no effect on the outcome," Burrow
said. "It's a relief to get done with the pro
bation. It was just something that hung
over my head."
Although Burrow will be starting at
safety, he won't be returning punts. Junior
split end Bobby Thomas will. Burrow be
came Nebraska's punt returner last season
after Thomas missed a game.
' He missed a game and I had a good
day," Burrow said. That good day was
against Minnesota and included a 67-yard
punt return touchdown.
Ray Phillips, like Ferragamo, has no
playing experience at Nebraska.
"IH be ready this week," he said. 'The
probation was a little mental -"Setback,
that's all." - .
"We're supposed to be out there playing,
but we couldn't because of a ruling."
Martin moves back
Phillips will start at left end. Bob Martin,
who started there last week, moved back to
his original position at right end where he
wUl start ahead of Dave Redding.
Gissler, the Huskers' tallest player at 6
feet 8 in., said he felt the probation defin
itely hurt him.
"Well, it's done what I said in court that
it would do," he said. "Right now I'm on
the third team and that's where I stay
unless someone gets hurt. I'd like to think
IVe got the ability to play."
Defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin said
he was happy to have the defensive trio
"We're anxious to see how Phillips plays.
He's never played here before," Kiffin
"Burrow should make a lot of difference
in the backfield with his experience.
"I certainly was upset Gissler was de
clared ineligible," he said, "but I think

Mills have played better in practice

National affiliation gives
karate club 'good deal'
Affiliation with a nationwide karate
organization marks the beginning of the
sixth year on the UNL campus for the
Nebraska Tae-Kwon-Do Club, according to
club sponsor Jim Ruse.
The club, independent last year, is now
a member of the World Tae-Kwon-Do
Association (WTA). Tae-Kwon-Do refers to
the Korean style of karate and means
"way of hand and foot."
"This entails a few different things,"
Ruse said. "It allows us to attend WTA
The WTA has planned tournaments in
Evansville, Ind., in October; Tuscon,
Ariz., in January; and Madison, Wise, in
April, he said.
"The membership also gets us discount
rates for flying and motels," ha said.
"All in all, it's a good deal."
The club, composed mainly of UNL
students, is open to anyone. The club has
between 20 and 25 members, Ruse said.
Dues are $25 per semester. Members
must pay an additional $10 for member
ship in the WTA.
Ruse, a first-degree black belt, is the
chief instructor of the Nebraska club.

However, his club falls under the super
vision of sixth-degree black belt Kihyung
Kim from the WTA.
Club members learn various katas
(forms) of karate, moving from simple to
more complex stages, through a pro
gression of belts.
Ruse said the progression in the club is
from white belt to yellow, green, purple,
brown and black belts. The president of
the WTA, Mr. Son, has the only ninth
degree black belt in the world, according
to Ruse.
At the semester's end, students, go

efficiency and a general knowledge of Tae-Kwon-Do
to advance belts," Ruse said.

the UNL Table Tennis Club is still alive.
VThe club currently has about 12

"The small number is primarily due to
the fact that we have a hard time finding a
large enough place to meet. We also lost
quite a few club members because of
graduation," he said.
"We had about 30 serious members
back in 1971 when the club met in Henzlik
Hali," he said. But now, Taylor said, the

in the Nebraska Union, which has room for
only six tables.
