Luck loses starting jo
By Pete Wegman
Any doubts in Nebraska fans' minds
concerning UNL's starting quarterback for
Saturday's Homecoming contest against
Kansas were dispelled Monday by Head
Coach Tom Osborne.
Junior Vince Ferragamo will start
Saturday against the Jayhawks, Osborne
told Extra Point Club members attending
a luncheon at the Elk's Club.
. i feel Terry (Luck, the buskers . start-
ing quarterback against Miami last week)
played reasonably well the first half, he
said, "but well stay with our normal
procedure and start the one who finished
Ferragamo directed the Huskers to four
scoring drives in the second half after
replacing Luck. Nebraska, down 9-7 at
halftime, beat Miami 31-16.
While Nebraska has been rotating play
ers at the split end and I-back positions in
the last four games, Osborne said he would
avoid rotating the quarterbacks.
A quarterback needs to get the feel of
the game and develop some confidence,
But, he added, "It's comforting to have
two good quarterbacks we wouldn't
hesitate to play at any time."
According to Osborne, the Husker
defense was playing the best it' has since
1971 when Nebraska won the national
"Bob Martin (defensive cod) probably
played as fine a game as I've seen him play
since he's been here," Osborne said.
"Curtis Craig also had an excellent ball
game. He made two or three catches in

women's field hockey coach will permit
free substitution in today's match between
UNL and Concordia College of Seward,,
according to Husker field hockey coach
"The whole team will go to Concordia,"
Petrakis said. "All should get a chance to
play and get some experience."
The Huskers defeated Concordia earlier
this year 7-0 in a home match. This second
match follows a 3-1 road win over Grace
land College and a 6-4 loss to the Uni
versity of Northern Iowa last weekend.
Seven players suffered injuries or muscle
strains in the Graceland match, Petrakis
said, "but all are getting healthy and
should be ready to play."
Senior forward Mary Claire Fransen has
been playing well despite a smashed finger,
Petrakis said, while senior forwards Sue
Hansen and Mary Amstrup (team captain)
also have played well.
On defense, sophomore Peggy Conrad,
junior Jean Vrbka and senior Beth Pillen
have been doing a fine job, according to

For the second consecutive week,
Osborne mentioned poor officiating during
the Huskers' game.
He cited a holding penalty in the second
quarter when quarterback Terry Luck was
dropped for a 1 yard loss.
The -officials measured the 15 yard
penalty from the point where Luck was
tackled but Osborne said the penalty
should have been measured from the line
"They turned what should have been a
15 yard loss into a 26 yard loss," he said.
Osborne, Corgan and Freshman Coach
Guy Ingles, who scouted Kansas at
Wisconsin '- last Saturday, said that the
Jayhawks, who the Huskers play this
week, are a better team than preseason
"They were picked to finish seventh or
eighth in the Big 8," Osborne said, "but
after their opening loss to Washington
State they've gotten better every week.
Ingles said he went to the Wisconsin.
game thinking that Wisconsin would beat
Kansas. The Jayhawks surprised Wisconsin
and won 41-7.
"Kansas displayed the quality of a good
team-getting stronger later in the game,"
Ingles said. "Kansas is not going to be a
team we can beat 56-0 (last year's score
against Nebraska)." ' ,
Kansas' wishbone offense is led by
quarterback Nolan Cromwell, . who has
gained more than 400 yards rushing the
last two games.
"Cromwell makes their offense go "
Ingles said. "He's probably the fastest
wishbone quarterback I've seen-iaster
than Steve Davis, Oklahoma quarterback
and Jack Mildren (OU quarterback from
1971-73)." - '

Athletic experience helps
intramural football teams
By Chuck Beck
Previous athletic experience has helped
an independent intramural football team
clinch a position in the ail-university
championship playoffs next week, accord

dent Brass Rail tcun.
Schreve, whose team finished its 4-1
season with a 20-13 loss to the Hot Rocks,
said his 14 team members all played in
high school, gaining a knowledge of fund
amental football tactics such as pacing and
Schieve was a walk-on wide receiver,

Rich Bahc, another ' Brass Rail, team
member, played witijjback and split end
with the Huskers (nm 1972-74, but his
eligibility ended last year.
Gale Wiedow, intramural coordinator,
said players with varsity experience ere
eligible for intramural football. He said a
rule has been dropped that prohibited
university athletes from playing on recrea
tional teams for three years after leaving
a varsity sport.
A new rule, that applies only to intra
mural football, allows up to two former
UNL athletes per team to play recreational
football. Wtedow said that basketball
leagues will be formed with university
athletes later this year.
The new rule applies only to intramural
football because there were not enough
former vanity athletes playing intramurals '
to form their own open football league.
Previous athletic experience does not
reflect how well an intramural team will
do, Bahe said. Intramural football play is
pretty haphazard" and the Brass Rail uses
no set plays, he explained.
"We mostly use short passes and keep
the play moving downfield" Bahe i;aj.
In intramural football, forward passes
ahead of th? scrimmage line are legal.
